    Notes 
    • Deputy from Newbury to the General Court, 5 April 1635. Arrived aboard "James" of London (record said he was a merchant from Malford not Corsham, but Christian Malford is in Wiltshire 11 mi from Corsham)? [Pioneers of Massachusetts, Surnames W-X, page 513]

      Name appears on the Colonial records 11 May 1670 as the deputy from Newbury.

      Died between 16 Aug and 3 July 1692 and his wife Joanna died after Feb 1687/88.
      [Series 2, Volume 3, [Woodman] / The Will of Dorothie Wooll / Yule Family Record, Page 904 ]

      The town of Newbury, MA, was settled and incorporated in 1635. In that year came Mr. Edward Woodman, his wife Joanna, and Archelaus Woodman to Newbury, where they resided till their death. Archelaus came from a place called Christian Malford, a parish in Wiltshire, in the Northwest part of the County, about six miles from Maimesbury, the chief town of that part of the country. He came passenger in the ship James, of London, which sailed from Southampton for New England, in April, 1635. A few weeks later than the James came the Abigail, bringing a Richard Woodman, only 9 years old. Whether Mr. Edward Woodman, who was probably brother to Archelaus Woodman, came in the James or Abigail, or some other vessel, no record informs us. Both of them came to Newbury at the same time. Richard died in Lynn in 1647, aged 21. Of the ninety-one grantees who settled Newbury, fifteen were entitled to the appellation of "Mr." One of these fifteen was Mr. Edward Woodman. He was a man of influence, decision and energy, and opposed with great zeal the attempt made by the Rev. Thomas Parker to change the mode of Church government from Congregationalism to something like Presbyterianism.

      Mr. Woodman was a deputy to the General Court, in 1636, 37, '39 and '43. In 1638, 1641, 1645 and '46, he was one of the three Commissioners to end small causes in Newbury, and at various times held other offices of profit and trust in town and state. Among his other commissions he had one from the State "to see people marry," of which in 1681 he thus speaks: "an unprofitable commission; I quickly laid aside the worke, which has cost me many a bottle of sacke and liquor, where friends and acquaintance have been concerned." He and his wife Joanna were living in February, 1687-8.

      She was then 74. He died prior to 1694; his age is not known.
      [A List of Some of the Descendants of Mr Edward Woodman, page 5-6]

      EDWARD, Newbury, elder brother of Archelaus, came, says Coffin, with him, bringing wife and sons Edward b. 1628, and John; had here Joshua, the first English male child of the town, b. 1636 or 7; Sarah, 12 Jan. 1642; Jonathan, 5 Nov. 1643; Ruth, 28 Mar. 1646; and, Coffin adds, perhaps others; was freeman 25 May 1636, rep. Sept. following and 7, and several years. later. His widow or wife Joanna is mentioned 9 Nov. 1653 in the rec. but the time of his d. is not mentioned.
