Geni (S6) says:
In 1637 He came from England on the Marey Anne -------------------- He emigrated from Great Yarmouth, England in 1637 and during his lifetime served in a number of offices in Marshfield and elsewhere in the new Plymouth Colony. Since he left from Great Yarmouth and was listed as servant to Thomas Olliver, a "calender" from Norwich, and there is an entry in the minutes of Norwich recording a payment to "Doggett" it is likely he was from East Anglia (not Wendover, Buckinghamshire, England as commonly assumed) (S6).
