  • Notes 
    • From "English Origins of New England Families, Vol. II": William Denison and his wife Margaret, with three of their six sons, emigrated to New England in 1631 and settled at Roxbury, where they appear in Rev. John Eliot's church records. He was admitted freeman 3 July 1632 and was a representative in the General Court in 1635; but in 1637, being an adjerent of Rev. John Wheelwright, he was disarmed. His descendants were numerous and influential. (Cf. Savage's Genealogical Dictionary, Pope's Pioneers of Massachusetts, and Register, vol. 46, pp. 352-354, 127-133.)
