Note

ELINOR, CALLED "LOCKWOOD", "DISBROW", & "WATERBURY" Elinor, first wife of Nicholas Knapp of Watertown, Middlesex Co, Massachusetts and Stamford, CT, has been called "Lockwood", "Disbrow" and at times, "Waterbury", in older genealogies. No known record supports such claims! Extant records identify her as "Elinor" only, and ancestry unknown. Her origin and ancestry remain unknown, though no doubt her origin was England. Many early publications state she was born at Combs, Co Suffolk, England, though do so without benefit of supporting evidence. At best we can say "she was (of) England." It is expected that the surname "Lockwood" was assumed as a result of the known relationship between the Knapps and the Lockwoods, at Watertown, Massachusetts. Thus, many believe she was a probable sister of Sergeant Robert and Edmund Lockwood. On 23 Oct 1943, a query appeared in the "Hartford Times", genealogical page, Query, A-2695, authored by Judge H. Stanley Finch, a Surrogate Judge, Stamford, Connecticut, who gave his opinion that Elinor, wife of Nicholas Knapp, was a daughter of Edmund Lockwood (1594-1635) of Combs, Co Suffolk, England, but did so without supporting evidence. While this would seem possible, proof remains lacking. Later research in 1978, and again in 1995, failed to identify that Elinor was of any identifiable surname in the early Colonial Records. At any rate, in today's jargon, the "virus" began to spread. Eventually after having been repeated enough, Pedigree Charts sprung forth claiming her as a daughter of Edmund Lockwood, yet a cited source for the entries remain lacking. Unless an extant document can be produced, to label Elinor with any surname, records should reflect her given name of Elinor, only. To do otherwise would only perpetuate the original "atrocious genealogical blunder"! As a result of Mr. William Pelham and Mr. Edmund Lockwood paying the fine of Nicholas Knapp in 1630, the assertion was made that Edmund Lockwood was his brother-in-law. Nothing could be further from the truth. Research identifies Mr. William Pelham as the person responsible for Nicholas Knapp, who belonged to his company, and that Mr. Edmund Lockwood was his Deputy, thus the reasons for paying the fine of Nicholas Knapp. Again, the "virus" was perpetuated and became fact without attending proof. As of this writing [1998], her surname remains unknown. For further discussion on the subject of Elinor, first wife of Nicholas Knapp, consult:
