"Rose Hillier was the widow of Hugh Hillier (or Tilly), who came to Salem from Dorchester, England, or its vicinity, in 1629, in the Lyon's Whelp, under the auspices of the Rev. John White of Dorchester, to serve Sir Richard Saltonstall. He afterward settled in Yarmouth. March 5, 1638-9, with Mr. Nicholas Simpkins and Giles Hopkins he deposed to the will of Peter Werden, the elder, of Yarmouth.
