Edward of Sandwich

Edward Perry of Sandwich

(Abt 1630/32 to bef 9 Mar 1694/5)

There is a lot of confusion online about Edward and his family.  Perhaps this page can help to clear up some of that confusion.

     Many list his parents as Edmund/Edward Perry and Sarah of Devonshire, England from the late 1500’s.  Many other Perry families of Plymouth and Massachusetts Colonies in the mid- 1600’s are also listed as descendants of Edmund and Sarah1, though no proof of this Edmund of Devonshire has ever been found.  Sarah is mentioned once in Plymouth records (as the possible stepmother of Ezra Perry2). Also, Edward may have had sisters named Deborah and Hannah.

If you have information that you wish to be included on this website about Edward of Sandwich please feel free to email me at Edward Perry.  For additional information about Edward Perry, read the excerpt listed here from the book “Ancestors and Descendants of William Browning Greene and Mary Hoxsie Lewis with Allied Families” by Bill Wright.

     Edward Perry’s parents are unknown, but we do know the names of his wife (Mary Freeman) and nine children from his will.  Edward’s will was proven on 12 Apr 16953.  Below is the list of Edward’s nine children mentioned in his will.  For additional information on them, please read the article mentioned above. More may be added later as the information is sorted out.
