Record of the Descendants of Vincent Meigs by Henry Benjamin Meigs
William Fry, Sr. of Weymouth, Eng. (according to M. Fayette Meigs) b. about 1568-701 probably m. about 1590-95 Sarah Hill of Lyme Regis, dau. of James and Judith Hill, and granddau. of John and Thomasine Jurdaine. They had (or certainly Wm. Fry had—whether we give him the correct information or not) the following children and probably others:
dau. Hannah, b. perhaps 1591 95, who m. Wm. Rawlins, and emigrated to America.
dau. Mary, b. 1593-97, who m. Walter Harris and emigrated to America 1632, on ship William and Frances, Weymouth, Mass., and New London, Ct
dau. Thomasine, b. about 1610-12, m. 1632 John Meggs and emigrated to America, etc., etc.
son William Jr., b. about 1600, who emigrated to Weymouth, Mass., and there d. 1642. Gives to Thos. Rawlin's, Thomas Harris and John Meggs, his three sisters' youngest children, each a kid. See will in N. E. Reg. Vol. 2, p. 385. We have positive proofs from Rawlin's Gen. and Mrs. Walter Harris' will, and William Fry's, Jr., will, that the above four people were brothers and sisters. We have it from Fayette M. Meigs, of Cal., that Thomasine or Tamzin Fry Meigs, wife of John Meigs, was a dau. of William Fry, Sr., of Weymouth, England.
