      William Green was born Devonshire, England, Oct. 16, 1591, as given in a manuscript of the "Green Family in New England," and in Wyman's "Charlestown Genealogies and Estates," in which Vinton Savage is credited for the statement. A William Greene, 23, embarked in the Expedition, Nov. 20, 1635, for the Barbadoes, the same ship on which sailed a Richard Snowe, 28.

      Pope states that he married Johannah, dau. of Mr. Thomas Carter, sister of Mrs. John Tuttle of Ipswich; she deposed in 1659, ae. 59 years (Essex Files). On the Planter, Apr. 2, 1635, were Jo. Tuttell, a mercer, 39; Joan Tuttell, 42; John Lawrence, 17; William Lawrence, 12, Marie Lawrence, 9 (children of a former marriage); Abigail Tuttell, 6; Symon Tuttell, 4; Sara Tuttell, 2; Jo Tuttell, 1; Joan Antrobuss, 65; Marie Wrast, 24; Tho. Greene, 15; Nathan Haford servant to Jo. Tuttell, 16—N. E. Register, vol. 14:303-4. Which makes it improbable that Mrs. Tuttle was a sister of William Green's wife, and no Tuttle is mentioned in Thomas Carter's will.

      William Green was admitted to the Charlestown Church, July 8, 1643, as was a John Green on Apr. 17, 1642; a John Green, probably William's brother, was taxed with him at Woburn in 1645, but not in 1646.

      Will of Edward Greene of Great Wilbraham, co. Cambridge, "carpinder," dated 21 October, 1648. To be buried in the parish churchyard of Great Wilbraham. Elizabeth my wife all the household stuff in the house where I now dwell. The bedstead which standeth at Francis Burgishes. May apparel which were my brother Roberts. Annes Saffone wife of John Saffone my eldest daughter I2d. to be paid upon demand. Margaret Greene my youngest daughter the little howse wherein I now dwelleth which I have surrendered to the said Margaret and her heirs. I give and bequeath unto Willyam Greene my youngest son five shillings to be paid to him if he ever come to demand it. Poor of Great Wilbraham. Residuary legatee and executor: Robert Greene my eldest son. Witnesses: John Yorke, Thomas Theball. No Probate. (Consistory of Ely, Register Fairchild, fol. 190.)
