WILLIAM PALMER [Willi: Palmer]. [69] A fourth Ormesby man, -- perhaps that "William Paulmer of the Parish of Ormsbie" who married Mary Stamforth at Ranworth (Norfolk), 30 Jan., 1607-8. [70] A "William Palmer, gent.", is given on the rent roll of Ormesby manor in 1610. [71] There is no doubt that our man had interests in Ormesby (See deed to the Shermans, below). No record is found of his sailing to New England, but he was at Watertown in 1636-7, and at Newbury in 1637. A deed is found in Ipswich Court files, dated 10 March, 1645, from Palmer to his daughter Martha and her husband, Captain John Sherman, wherein, in consideration of his daughter's release "of a parcel of land in Great Ormsbye in old England", worth £105, Palmer conveys to John and Martha Sherman all his houses and lands in Newbury and Hampton. [72] Palmer married (2) Ann -----, who survived him, married (2) Francis Plumer, and died at Newbury 18 Oct., 1665. William Palmer had four other children besides Martha, and died at Hampton between 10 March, 1645, and 6 Oct., 1647.
