From this deposition we learn that Samuel3 Little (Ann2 Warren, Richard1) was born about the year
1657.

On the grave stone of Capt. Nathaniel Winslow at Marshfield it is stated that he died 1 December, 1719, in the eighty-first year of his age. If his birth occurred in the year 1639 this statement does not conflict with that in the deposition.

Peter was listed as "Gentleman" in several documents and he was a member of the Town Council of Preston, Lancashire, England, which is located about 5 miles from Clayton. He leased a shop in the Guild Hall, located next to the Preston Market Place, on 1 Oct 1617. He was last recorded in Preston on 21 Jan 1629, when, according to the early archives of Preston Borough, he loaned 8 shillings to the Borough for a project concerned with common lands. In 1630 the Plague, which had already ravaged London, struck Preston, and 1,069 people out of a population of 3000 died within the year. Peter and his son, Peter, and their families probably left Preston because of the plague, as did many of the other survivors, because he next appears in the American Colonies in the mid 1630s. It is believed that he first settled in Lynn, MA before moving to Yarmouth in 1639. In "The History of Old Yarmouth", by Charles F. Swift, the following: "At the extreme easterly part of the Town, Peter Worden the elder and younger have established themselves, in spite of the opposition of some of their associates, and here the former died the first year of settlement." His will was probated on 5 Mar 1639. It is the first will printed in the Plymouth Court Records. In his will he left most of his real and personal property in both England and America to his son, Peter Worden. Both he and his son are buried in the Worden Cemetery, overlooking Cape Cod Bay, south side of Route 6A in the town of Dennis near the border of the town of Brewster.

Peter's will was made on 9 Feb 1639 and proved 9 Mar 1639. It is believed that he was about 70 at the time of his death.

Dr Samuel WORDEN [Parents]-756 was born in 1645/1646 in Yarmouth, Barnstable, Massachusetts, United States. He died 1 on 26 Aug 1716 in Stonington, New London, Connecticut, United States. He was buried on 27 Aug 1716. Samuel married (MRIN:729) Hopestill HOLLY-2122 in 1665 in Massachusetts, United States.

Samuel worked 2 as Physician.

In 1672 Samuel Werden was proposed for a freeman. In New England, a man attained the status of freeman either as the eldest son or by owning a freehold estate; and in every town there was a commission appointed to examine that freehold estate and make sure its title was clear.

Sometime before 1693, Dr. Samuel bought land in Rhode Island, because in a deed registered there on 19 September 1693, Werden's Pond is called by his name. (Old N.K. Land Evidences, Volume 1, Page 223 in S.K. Townhouse.)

On 8 July 1695, he bought land consisting of 250 acres from Benedict Arnold, one of the original purchasers of a tract of land in this "collony comonly called Pitticomcott." This was originally purchased by Benedict Arnold in 1658 and comprises the present towns of South Kingston and Narragansett.

In 1696, Dr. Samuel sold his farm in the town of Yarmouth, Mass. to Isaac Chapman "except one half aker of land which I Samuel Werden except and reserve to myself and to my fathers posterity forever, lying square about the place where my father Werden was buried, out of the aforementioned farm, notwithstanding whatever is said above to the contrary, with free liberty of ingress and egress with horse or cart or foot from the common highway to same to have and to hold forever." He therefore preserved this land to all Wordens forever.

In the Norwich town clerk's office, Oliver Newton Worden found this precious record of conjugal and filial affection: "September 13, 1715, it was to me that woeful day in which my dear and tender and loving wife departed this life and was buried on ye 27th." "8 November 1752, then ye above written was entered from an ancient writing, at ye desire of Mr. Thomas Werden Jr. by me - Isaac Huntington, T.C." A few months after Hopestill died, Dr. Samuel married Francis West. In Stonington, Connecticut 18 September 1716, "Francis Werden, widow and relique of Samuel Werden late of Stonington dec. refuseth to administer upon ye estate of her late husband, Samuel Werden dec. and desireth that adm. may be granted to Isaac Werden. Isaac Werden died in 1718 and his wife Rebekah became administer for both estates.

This name on the early Barnstable records is written Eure, on the Colony records it is written Ure, Eue, Ewe, and Ewer. A Henry Eue was one of the first settlers in Sandwich. Dcc. 4, 1638, a warrant was directed to James Skiff, ordering him, to re-carry Henry Eue and his wife and their goods, to the place where he brought them. This warrant does not appear to have been executed, for in 1640 he was an inhabitant of Sandwich and had a share assigned to him in the division of the common meadows. Mr. Freeman's statement that he was the ancestor of the ,Ewer family of Sandwich, requires confirmation; because after 1640 his name disappears on the records. In 1643, there was a John Eue at Hartford; but it does not appear that he was connected with the Ewers of Massachusetts and plymouth.

"Thomas Ewer, aged 40, a tailor, embarked aboard the ship James, Jo. May, at London, June 19, 1635, for New England, with his wife Sarah, aged 28, and two children, Elizabeth, aged 4 years, and Thomas, aged 1 1/2 years. He had at least two older children, not named in the Custom House records, who came over subsequently, perhaps with their grandfather in 1638.

1. Thomas Ewer married Sarah, daughter of Mr. Robert Linnell, probably in London where he resided. It does not appear that he had any children born in this country. his children were

4. III. Elizabeth, born 1631, died in Barnstable, and was buried 9th April 1641.
5. IV. Thomas, born 1633, married Hannah,  , and died in Barnstable in 1667, aged 34.
Thomas Ewer settled in Charlestown, where he acquired some notoriety as a politician. In 1637 Lord Ley brought a

charge against him for using language disrespectful to the King, and afterwards he was prosecuted as one of the friends and supporters of Wheelwright; but he recanted his opinions, proving himself not to be so firm a man as his son Thomas. He died in Charleston in 1638, and his widow Sarah married, Dee. 11, 1639, Thomas Lothrop. Her family removed with her to Barnstable.
