Notes for Patience HATCH

Patience, lately mar. to Joshua Downing, 16 Jan. 1676. [ref 22]

Patience. Philip Hatch was a near neighbor of the Edges in York. The daughter of Philip and his wife Patience, also named Patience, married Joshua Downing of Kittery, a successful man and a representative to the General Court. "Gamar Eage" could hardly have been his grandmother as he was born about 1644 and was much older than his wife. It is very probable that he, a man of means, made himself responsible for the support of his wife's maternal grandmother. [ref 46:1-476] Patience; lately married to Joshua Downing on Jan. 16, 1676, when his father, Dennis Downing, settled his property on Joshua, reserving a life-estate. [ref 46:1-212]
