IMMIGRANT, 1635 "Hopewell"

A BIOGRAPHY OF ALICE RICHARDS BRADFORD, by Laurence Overmire (9th great grandson), June 2016:

Alice Richards was baptised Apr. 7, 1629 in Pitminster, Somerset, England, the daughter of Thomas and Wealthean (Loring) Richards. She immigrated with her parents on the ship "Hopewell" in 1635.

Alice married William Bradford, Jr., the son of Gov. William Bradford of the Mayflower, on Jan. 28, 1649/50 in Plymouth.

Alice gave birth to ten children: John, William, Thomas, Alice, Mercy, Hannah, Melatiah, Samuel, Mary and Sarah.

Maj. William Bradford succeeded Myles Standish as the chief military man in the colony. He was the commander of the Plymouth forces in King Philip's War. He was wounded in battle at Narragansett Fort and carried the musket ball in his flesh the rest of his life. He also served as Assistant Treasurer and Deputy Governor of Plymouth, residing in what is now Kingston on the south side of Jones River in the same house his father lived in from 1627-47.

Alice died on Dec. 12, 1671, at the age of about 44, and was buried in Plymouth.

WARNING: Various birth dates are shown for Alice in various sources. It is not clear which might be the truth. William Richard Cutter's New England Families, e.g., claims she was born Jun 17, 1624. Mayflower Birth and Deaths shows 1627. Others show her b. 6 Jun 1627, still others 16 Jun 1627. NEHGR shows she was b. abt. 1627.
