(Husband) Relationship NoteIt is unlikely that Annis, the wife of John Morse of Dedham, and Francis Chickering of Dedham, were siblings. In his Morse-Chickering Correction article, the author acknowledged that the information he had relied upon had come from two secondary sources and that further research had convinced him that "it is most doubtful if Annas, wife of John Morse, was a Chickering."2,3
Birth*1611John Morse was born in 1611 in Dedham, Essex County, England.1
Marriage*He married Annis ______ probably in Dedham, Massachusetts Bay Colony. She was, by early researchers, thought to have been Annis "Chickering", a sister of Francis Chickering. The theory has since been proved false, although many publications, past and present, still perpetuate the incorrect information. John Morse's wife's surname has not yet been learned.3,4,5
