Immigrated to America in 1635 aboard the "Susan and Ellen".
Husband of Mary Lockwood. Father of Judith Belcher Andrews.∼Born about 1614 (aged 22 in 1635; deposed aged "about fifty years " on 23 Nov 1666; deposed aged "about fifty-two years" on 20 Jun 1667; deposed aged "about fifty-four years" in about 1668; deposed aged "fifty-nine years" on 21 Mar 1671/2).
Merchant who came to Massachusetts Bay in 1635 on the "Susan & Ellen," & setrtled at Ipswich MA. Died after 28 Jul 1674 (when he acknowledged a debt) & before 30 Sep 1690 (when his son Samuel called him deceased). (He may still have been alive as late as 1677, when Robert Lord finally recorded Belcher's 1652 marriage contract, apparently with Belcher's current acknowledgement.
Married (1) by about 1639, ____ ____. (It has been noted that on shipboard "Mary Clifford," aged 25 is listed next to Jeremy & that he had a grandson named "Clifford Belcher.")
(2) Marriage contract signed 30 Sep 1652 with Mary Lockwood, perhaps daughter of Edmund Lockwood. She died at Ipswich [bland] Oct 1700 as "widow Belcher." (Mary Lockwood was probably a previously unidentified daughter of EDMUND LOCKWOOD of Cambridge. With his 1st wife he had at least 2 children, but only a son Edmund has been identified. These children of the immigrant's 1st marriage were to be "dispose[d] of." Since the son Edmund, even though he eventually resided in Stamford, married a woman from Ipswich, this may be where he was placed, so it would not be surprising if we found other children in that town as well.)
