    Notes 

    • (1) Thomas Shepard's Memoir of His Own Life, annotated and printed in Young, Alexander, Chronicles of the First Planters of the Colony of Massachusetts Bay from 1623 to 1636, Boston, MA: C. C. Little and J. Brown, 1846:

      This deliverance was so great, that I then did think, if ever the Lord did bring me to shore again, I should live like one come and risen from the dead. This is one of those living mercies the Lord hath shown me, a mercy to myself, to my wife and child then living, and to my second son, Thomas, who was in this storm, but in the womb of his dear mother, who might then have perished, and been cut off from all hope of means and mercy; and unto my dear friends then with me, viz, brother Champney, Frost, Goff, and divers others, most dear saints; and also to all with me. . . .

      [A]nd when it was fit to travel in the spring, we went up to London, Mr. Harlakenden not forsaking me all this while; for he was a father and mother to me. And when we came to London, to Mrs. Sherborne, not knowing what to do nor where to live privately, the Lord provided a very private place for us; where my wife was brought to bed and delivered of my second son, Thomas, and none but our friends did know of it. And so, by this means, my son was not baptized until we came to New-England, the winter following, being born in London, April 5, 1635.
