John Woolcott and wife Winifred Woolcott Allyn

(1) John Woolcott, b. Axbridge, Somerset, 1599, d. 1638 Watertown MA. After the death of his first wife, Mary Wrentmore, John immigrated to America on the Recovery of London, which departed from Weymouth, Dorset, in 1634. He was admitted as a freeman of Cambridge MA in 1635. His daughters, Elizabeth and Mary, either came with him, or followed soon after. Shortly after arriving in America, John Woolcott married Winifred Crawford of Watertown. She was the widow of John Crawford who drowned in the Charles River in 1634. Winifred had at least one child from her first marriage, Rebecca Crawford, born in 1633. John's surname was usually spelled Woolcott, a spelling that some of his descendants continued using.

Winifred, widow of John Woolcott, deceased, was recorded as a grantee of 6 acres in the town plot and of a farm of 183 acres, and was a proprietor of this and four additional lots of land at Watertown in 1644.

Winifred later married Thomas Allyn of Barnstable MA. In 1649, Thomas Allyn and his wife, Winifred, signed another deed giving properties at Watertown, including a house that had been Winifred's, to Edmund White of London. This appears to have been the same properties Winifred signed over in 1641, so the 1649 deed was probably a quit claim signed after her marriage to Thomas Allyn. Thomas Allyn died in 1679. His will, dated 1675, mentions his children, Samuel, John, and Mehitable Annabelle, and Samuel's son, Thomas. Samuel Allyn, was born on in 1644, and John Allyn in 1646. Thomas' daughter, Mehitable was born in 1648 and married Samuel Annabel 1667. Some or all of these children may have been from a first wife, for Samuel Allyn was born at the same time that Winifred Wolcott was recorded as a widow living at Watertown. Thomas Allyn's will also mentions his "daughter-in-law", Sarah, William Clark's wife, and Martha, Benjamin's wife, and his "daughter-in-law" Rebecca, wife of Samuel Sprague. These "daughters-in-law" were the children of Winifred by her previous marriages.
