Generation Two

2. WILLIAM2 WILCOXSON (William1) of Wirksworth, son of (1) William1 WILCOXSON, was born about 1601[10], and died between 1 Jan. 1652 and 16 June 1652[2] in Stratford[2]. He married MARGARET BIRDSEYE, who died in 1655[8] in Killingworth[12]. [7, 14, 8, 2, 9, 10, 16, 13]

Jo. Willcockson (2)
The Ancestral File incorrectly shows William as the son of John and Joanne (Grundick) Wilcoxson of St. Albans, Hertfordshire, England. This information appears to have come from Thomas Wilcox's 1937 "Preliminary Report" which mentions John Wilkockson and Joane Grumsdish of Frosham, Chestershire, with "it is entirely possible that this couple were William Wilcoxson's parents." Although William and the other passengers of the Planter "were vouched for in a blanket certificate of character by the minister of St. Alban's, Hertfordshire", the preliminary report finds that no Wilcoxsons lived in Hertfordshire at that time. Finally, that same author's final report in 1963 gives evidence that William was actually from Wirksworth, Derbyshire, the son of another William Wilcoxson. Hence, we consider this to be the best information.[24, 20, 11]
"22 March - 11 April 1635. The following passengers, having taken the oaths, are to be embarked in the "Planter", Mr. Nicholas Travice, bound from London to New England:
...
