Henry Dow (1605-1659) was a descendant of Joseph Dow (d.1561) of Tylner, Norfolk County, England. Henry married widow Joan Nudd (widow of Roger Nudd), and immigrated in 1637 to Watertown, Massachusetts. They moved to Hampton, Massachusetts in 1644. Thomas Dow (d.1654) immigrated from England to Newbury, Massachusetts in 1639. There were also five other immigrant Dow individuals whose posterity is traced in this work (see p. 770 in v. 4 for a listing of all seven immigrants). Descendants and relatives lived in New England, New York, New Jersey, Indiana, Michigan, Illinois, Colorado, California and elsewhere.

About this record

This screen shows the complete catalog entry of the title you selected.

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.
