_______ Although Timothy Pells' daughters were apparently minors and unmarried at the time of the writing of his will, further records give additional information on this family and proof that daughter Susannah became the wife of John Cook(e), Kezia married Samuel Henshaw and Elizabeth married (1) William Bendry, and (2) Job Virget. Alice Pells, widow of Timothy, married after Timothy's death, Daniel Shipley, whose first wife was deceased..

It is assumed that the order in which Timothy Pells listed his daughters was according to their birth order, and all born before the year 1676, the date of his will.
