Elizabeth __?__
Husband:  William GUTTERSON
Birth:  by 1628, Isle of Jersy, England
Death:  26 Jun 1666, Ipswich, Essex Co., MA 
Event:  1648, made Freeman
Father possiblyWilliam GUTTERSON ( -1643)

In Wait (1848: 50, see sources below), we see that William GUTTERSON is a Freeman of Ipswich in December of 1648.  The minimum age for being a Freeman was 20, so William could not have been born later than 1628.  That the Freeman of 1648 is the son, not the father, is deduced from the fact that the father is presumably the one who died in 1643.  I have yet to find proof that the father of William GUTTERSON ( -1666) is William GUTTERSON ( -1643), but there appear to be no other male GUTTERSONs in Ipswich at the time, except these two, so there is a strong probability they are father and son.

Wife:  Elizabeth __?__
Birth:  ca. 1632, of Jersey, England
Other spouse:  m2.  1670 John CALLUM / COLLUM / COLLINS / KILHAM / KILHELM

William Gutterson, Ipswich, MA, 1648.
Apparently refers to the above (Wait 1848: 50).

Not much is known of Willaim Gutterson but he held a share of Plum Island in 1644 and was probably a fisherman.  It is thought he was from the Island of Jersey.

5.  LDS.  Family Search: Internet Genealogy Service:  AF - Ancestral File (online at FamilySearch.org).  Gives William's birth as 1643 in Ipswich.

6.  WorldConnect / Ancestry World Trees (online at RootsWeb.com/Ancestry.com).  Gives birth date/place of William Gutterson as ca. 1628, Isle of Jersey, England, which I find much more plausible than 1643 in Ipswich.
