- Daniel came to Massachusetts at the age of 14 with his older brother and sister. It is believed they came to join their older brother John who had come from Wiltshire, England, in 1635, and had settled in Newbury, Essex Co., Mass. (see also )
Savage says: DANIEL, Andover, is that youth, I suppose, aged 14, whose name on the list of passeng. in the Bevis from Southampton, 1638, is Dayell, coming with Alce or Alice P. aged 20, prob. his sis. and Samuel P. 18, perhaps their br. and others, under the designat. of serv. of Richard Dummer, m. 20 Oct. 1650, Mary Farnum, perhaps d. of Ralph; and d. 1713, it is said, aged 85, wh. is one of the very few instances of under estimate. Only s. Daniel. and John, are nam.; and of John the d. is so early as 24 Dec. 1690, that perhaps he was never m. But seven fem. Poors are as early found to m. and all may have been his ds. viz. Martha, with Jon Granger, 9 Feb. 1680; Hannah, with Francis Dane, jr. 16 Nov. 1681; Eliz, with Jacob Marston, 7 Apr. 1686; Priscilla, with Abraham Moore, 14 Dec. 1687; Deborah, with Timothy Osgood, 29 May 1689; Ruth, with John Stevens, 20 Dec. 1689; and Lucy, with Samuel Austin, 11 Oct. 1691.
