      [Note by compiler: Information from this source should be viewed with caution, since the author, Orra Eugene Monnette, sometimes reached erroneous conclusions based upon flimsy evidence.]

      ELIZABETH, second wife of MAJOR JAMES GYLES

      This is the kind of discovery which gladdens the heart and brings a sure reward to conscientious work. It will stand the test of examination.

      She was ELIZABETH, daughter of SAMUEL TIDD, (son of JOHN TIDD, the first), and wife, SARAH (_____).

      Herein lies the proof:

      When the estate of JOHN SOUTHWICK of SALEM, the original nesting place of the GYLES flock, as EDWARD GYLES, the first and others, (vide, GILES MEMORIAL, ante, p. 716), was settled, he had made a will, dated October ye 26th, 1672, which among other provisions, recited; "5thly. I giue to ELIZABETH GILES ALIUS TIDD fower pownds in Cattell." He names his loving brother, JOSIAH SOUTHWICK, et al. The will was proved in Salem Court, 29: 9: 1672, and attested the same date by "SARA, the wife of the deceased," which is a very important fact. (Probate Records of Essex County, Mass., Vol. II, pp. 313-4.)

      [Note by compiler: According to Vital Records of Salem, Massachusetts to the End of the Year 1849, Salem, MA: Essex Institute, 1925, Vol. 6?Deaths, p. 241, John SOUTHWICK died on October 25, 1672. If that is true, his will would not have been executed on October 26, 1672.]

      Now, SAMUEL TIDD, was a son of the first JOHN TIDD, POPE, (PIONEERS, p. 448, and vide, post, TIDD, this PART, as indic.).

      JOHN SOUTHWICK, b. 1620, was a son of the first LAWRENCE SOUTHWICK, and married, first, SARAH, widow of SAMUEL TIDD in 1652; sec., Anne, widow of Thomas Flint, she d. in the summer of 1668; third, Sarah Burnett, Feb. 3, 1668-9; he died Oct. 25, 1672, and the last SARAH was his widow, SARA, when he d. in 1672. She m. sec., THOMAS COOPER. He had a brother, JOSIAH SOUTHWICK, born in 1632.

      (HIST. of SALEM, MASS., PERLEY, Vol. II, p. 53.)

      Now, the GREAT FACT, follows;

      "ELIZABETH, daughter of SAMUEL and SARA TIDD was born, May (__), 1642." (Idem, Vol. III, p. 30.)

      "Thomas Cooper, husbandman, married widow, SARAH SOUTHWICK, June 12, 1674; dau. Elizabeth, born, Nov. 1, 167?(Idem, p. 75). Consult, also, Annals of Salem, (Felt, Vol. 2, pp. 580-1). 1658, JOHN BURTON; JOSIAH SOUTHWICK, et al.

      SAMUEL TIDD, d. 1651, (SAVAGE, Vol. IV, p. 300).

      Apparently, as premised, JAMES GYLES had been in America bef. 1668, or else ELIZABETH TIDD m. him early on his coming, or m. him bef., and went to Eng., with him to return in 1668, as she was 18 by 1660, and ready for m.

      But, the clincher is the rem. to New Jersey of that JOSIAH SOUTHWICK, who became a prominent settler of BURLING., not far from Piscataway, where the GYLES resided, and, later, at Stoney Brook.
