Reverend Joseph Avery1

(Friend) Emigration5 April 1635Joseph, with his wife and children, sailed from Southampton, Hampshire, England, to New England on 5 April 1635 with his close friend Antony Thacher, and his family, on the ship James of London. Joseph's name, however, does not appear on the ship's passenger list. He was a Puritan priest, and probably sailed under an assumed name to avoid scrutiny.1
Relationship Note*Before departing England together on the James, Reverend Joseph Avery and Antony Thacher, calling themselves "cousins", had been very close friends and had made an agreement to settle their families in the same place.1
(Friend) Relocation15 August 1635 Neither the exact place, nor date, of landing in New England of the ship James has been agreed upon by historians. Whether Boston, Newbury or Ipswich, wherever the passengers first landed, Antony Thacher and Joseph Avery and their families sojourned for a short time in Ipswich, Massachusetts. While there, Reverend Avery received a call to preach in Marblehead, then a part of Salem. During the time he took for deliberation, the two families removed to Newbury with plans to settle there. But after Avery accepted the call to Marblehead, he and his family of eleven all told, accompanied by Antony Thacher and his wife Elizabeth (Jones) Thacher, and his children by his first wife, William, Edith, Mary and Peter, went back to Ipswich. From there they embarked for Marblehead. Antony Thacher's nephew, Thomas Thacher, who had sailed with his uncle's family to New England, felt a sentiment of evil about the trip and did not accompany them on the voyage. Instead Thomas decided to make the journey overland despite the danger of being attacked by hostile Indians. The Thacher-Avery party embarked from Ipswich for Marblehead in a pinnace and the vessel was wrecked on 15 August 1635. All on board were lost except Antony Thacher and his second wife Elizabeth (Jones) Thacher.1
