Ann Ellice1,2,3

Father*Joseph Ellice2,4 d. 6 Mar 1663/64
Mother*Ann ______4
Relationship Note*The Colver-Culver source stated that Ann was the daughter of John Ellice, one of the signers of the Dedham Covenant. It is believed that the John Ellice, who signed the Covenant, was more likely her brother. According to the Bloodlines and Inbreeding source, John's parents were Ann and Joseph Ellice and because this researcher believes that John and Ann were siblings, her parents were likely Ann and Joseph Ellice also.2,4
Birth*Ann Ellice was probably born in England.5
Marriage*19 September 1638She married Edward Colver on 19 September 1638 in First Church, Dedham, Massachusetts Bay Colony. Their marriage was the second entered in the records of the First Church of Dedham, which probably at that time consisted of a small congregation meeting in the houses of the members. The Reverend John Allyn was the pastor, having been ordained shortly before performing the Colver marriage.2,1

Joseph Ellice1

d. 6 March 1663/64
Father*______ Ellice
Marriage*He married Ann ______ in England.1
Relationship Note*Among the earliest settlers of the town of Dedham in the Massachusetts Bay Colony were at least seven individuals who signed their own surnames as "ELLICE", thus distinguishing themselves from other unrelated "ELLIS" families in the Colony. John, Ann and Thomas ELLICE settled with their father Joseph ELLICE. Their mother, possibly also Ann, may have been with them. Richard and Joseph ELLICE settled with their widowed mother Ann ELLICE. These two ELLICE families interacted with each other in Dedham and it is suspected by this researcher that they were related. If Joseph's children and the widow Ann's children were cousins, for example, Ann's deceased husband may have been Joseph's brother. For several generations the ELLICE family maintained their identity through the spelling of their surname. By the beginning of the 18th century, however, those people copying or indexing an original document began to spell their name a variety of ways; Ellis, Elles, Eles, Elces, Allice, Allis were just a few. By the middle 1700s our ELLICE family had become ELLIS.2,3,1
Death*6 March 1663/64He died on 6 March 1663/64 in Dedham.1,4
