The will (dated 5 Sept. 1657, proved 5 April 1658) of Robert Cochet of Mickle, Countie Derby, Gentleman, gives to 'my sister Dorothy Joyce, wife of one John Joyce of England, or to their children, in my sister, their mother, be deceased, the summe of five pounds. The authors of the article noted that the legatees named in the Cochet will were the John Joyce and wife Dorothy of Yarmount, and this identification is generally accepted. The fact that Robert Cochet is called 'gentlemen' would suggest that English records may be promising. No other John Joyce appears to be of record at the period in New England although a Walter Joyce, with wife and family, were early settlers in Marshfield.
