  • Notes 
    • From The Great Migration Begins, pg. 486: "John Winthrop wrote on 26 September 1633 of '...those two reverend and faithful ministers Mr. Cotton and Mr. Hooker, who lately arrived here with their families in as good health (praised be God) as when they came forth, although Mrs. Cotton was delivered of a son at sea, who was since baptized on shore and named Seaborne.' Cotton's own remarks on the name were 'to keep alive... in me, and to teach him, if he live, a remembrance of sea-mercies from the hand of a gracious God.'"
