    Notes 
    • John W. Stedman came to Cambridge in 1638 at age 36.  He may have been a brother to Robert who arrived in Cambridge at about the same time. However, there is no story about John having come from Holland as there is with Robert.  In fact, it has been reported that he travelled with the Rev. Josse Glover, Rector of Sutton in Surrey.
