p. 253 ERRINGTON, Abraham (1622-1677) & Rebecca CUTLER (-ca 1697); no date, [1649, 1650]; Cambridge/Charlestown

2.  Kerry William Bate.  1978.  "The English Origins of the Cambridge, Massachusetts, Errington Family."  New England Historical and Genealogical Register 132(1978): 44-50.
p. 44 Although New England records identify the English home of the Errington family, no accurate account of their English origins has ever been published.  One incorrect account making these Erringtons into Harringtons and giving them a noble origin appeared in The Boston Evening Transcript and was widely copied in Harrington genealogies (see, for example, George H. Harrington, Manuscript of Harrington Family Genealogical Gazetteer [Austin, Texas, 1941]).  This claim was subsequently refuted by Meridith B. Colket in "The Family of the Earl of Lincoln. Second Paper.  The alleged Harringto Connection," (The American Genealogist, 20 [1943]: 46-48).  Now we attempt, for the first time, the correct ancestry of this armigerous family.

1.  EDWARD1 ERRINGTON, of Denton, Northumberland, is called ancestor of the Errington family (see Madeleine H. Dodds, History of Northumberland [Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, 1930], 13:192; George W. Marshall, Visitation of Northumberland in 1615 [London, 1878], 69; Joseph Foster, Pedigrees...of Northumberlan...in 1615, and...1666 [Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, 1891], 44)...

I quote the introductory paragraph and entry for the progenitor to make it absolute clear our subject is not one of the "Somerset" HARRINGTONs and to supply some of the sources leading to the error and those correcting them.
