    Rob -- Thanks for your efforts in assembling the genealogical information on your website, including that about Thomas Wood of Rowley, Mass.

    I would, however, appreciate your correcting the reference to Ruth "Mousall" as Thomas Wood's mother. This factoid is widespread but it is absolutely, uncontestably, completely, utterly false.

    This notion is the product of the mention in Ralph Mousall's will of his "daughter Ruth Wood." However, Ralph was not talking about Ruth the wife of Edward Wood and the mother of Thomas Wood here. For one thing, that Ruth Wood had already been dead a number of years when Ralph wrote his will. One doesn't make bequests to corpses.

    Edward Wood and his wife Ruth Lea (or Lee) were from Nuneaton, Warwickshire, where the christenings of their older children appear in the parish register. The register also records their marriage in Nuneaton, 2 Feb 1619 /20.
