    Notes 

    • (1) Worcester, John P., "The Worcester Family" <http://www.worcesterfamily.com/intro.htm>:

      Joseph Worcester. . . . Joseph gives two deposititons in 1606 in the Court of Exchequer proceedings and deposes that his father Richard . . . is the grandfather of the defendant Richard. . . . He testifies in 1606 as being ?age 40 years or thereabouts? and indicates that he is from West Haddon and also ?of Rugby.? The will of Joseph Worcester the elder of Rugby is dated Feb. 10, 1644/45. In his will, Joseph names his wife Alice, eldest son William, another son Joseph, and daughters Anne French, Alice Cave, and Susanna Mason. The Parish Register of the Church of St. Andrew, Rugby, indicates that Joseph was the churchwarden there. His signature appears on the register for 1624 and 1634. His unusual script for the letter ?W? probably caused the error in the Lists of Rugby Church-wardens 1623-1949 compiled by Edward R. Reid-Smith, 1950, wherein is listed a Joseph Borcester.
