Father*William Orcutt Jr.1,2 b. 1664, d. 10 Apr 1739
Mother-Probable*Jane Washburn1,2 b. b 1672, d. b 21 Sep 1698
Birth*1696Elizabeth Orcutt was probably born in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England), say about 1696 or earlier.1,2
Research Opinion*Elizabeth was named in her father's will, and if born in 1696, would have married at age 21. While the Mayflower Cooke source chose caution and identified Jane Washburn as Joanna's possible mother, this researcher believes Jane the more probable choice since Joanna's father William Orcutt Jr. and Hannah Smith didn't marry until 21 September 1698.1
Marriage*31 January 1716/17She married Ebenezer French, son of Joseph French and Experience Foster, on 31 January 1716/17 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).1,3,4

Joanna Orcutt1,2

b. 1694
Father*William Orcutt Jr.1,2 b. 1664, d. 10 Apr 1739
Mother-Probable*Jane Washburn1,2 b. b 1672, d. b 21 Sep 1698
Birth*1694Joanna Orcutt was probably born in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England), say about 1694 or earlier.1,2
Research Opinion*Joanna was named in her father's will, and if born in 1690 and married at age 25, would have been age 46 at the birth of her tenth child. Or if born in 1694 and married at age 21, she would have been 42 when her tenth child was born. While the Mayflower Cooke source chose caution and identified Jane Washburn as Joanna's possible mother, this researcher believes Jane the more probable choice since Joanna's father William Orcutt Jr. and Hannah Smith didn't marry until 21 September 1698.1
Marriage*14 July 1715She married Benjamin Edson, son of Joseph Edson and Experience ______, on 14 July 1715 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).3,4,5

Court Action*1749Plaintiff "Martha Leonard, who was the wife of Joseph Leonard late of Bridgewater... Yeoman, Deceased" sued Jonathan Chandler, a Bridgewater Yeoman in 1749 "That instantly without delay he render to said Martha her reasonable Dower." Martha was represented by Daniel Johnson Esq. of Bridgewater. Plaintiff demanded a messuage and 7 acres in Bridgewater, of which her husband was seized "during the Coverture and whereof she hath nothing (as She Saith) and the said Martha Leonard Complains that the said Jonathan Chandler hath Deforced her thereof and then and there to Shew Cause why to the said Martha Leonard her reasonable Dower as aforesaid he doth not render etc." Defendant pleaded in abatement that (1) the writ identified Joseph Leonard as "Yeoman", when he never had "the Estate to make him so", that (2) the writ did not list plaintiff's "Addition... Neither of Town or County, which is absolutely Necessary and without which She cannot be rightly known", and that (3) the writ listed defendant Jonathan Chandler as a "Yeoman, which is Wrong, for he is a Bloomer." The defendant was overruled and then pleaded that he did set off her dower to her. The Jury verdict was for the plaintiff and included her dower, 10s in damages, and costs, taxed at £2.11s.5d. The defendant appealed, with Daniel Johnson Esq. of Bridgewater and James Hovey of Plymouth as sureties. No further record.14
