    Notes 
    • William Frost, according to Lechford's notes, came from Nottingham, England, for he mentions of meeting in 1638, in Boston, Mass., "his old acquaintance, Master Frost, sometime of Nottingham, England, with his sonnes, John and Henry Grey." William settled in Fairfield, Conn., as a very old man, and was evidently of good family, who from religious principles and perhaps to escape persecution, sought to end his days peacefully in New England. All his children were born in England, and all came to America except his daughter, Mary Rylie. Whom his wife was is not known.
