Reverend William Worcester, came from England and was settled pastor of the church first gathered in Salisbury, Massachusetts sometime between the years 1638 and 1640. Until this is disproved we assume that he was the son of Willyam Woster of Chedington, Buckingharmshire, England and
was born about 1602. By his father's will, he with his brothers Thomas and Edward, were cut off with only 10 #'s, while younger brothers received the family estate.
He was made Vicar of Olney, July 26, 1624, which office he retained until 1636, when on account of refusing to comply with the command of his superior to read to his congregation from the King's book those portions which allowed sports and recreations after service on the Lord's day, he was suspended from his office of Vicar. He came to America a year or two later and settled in Salisbury, Mass. Here he continued in this ministry till his decease October 28, 1662. His grave in the old cemetery in Salisbury, is covered by a large flat stone upon which a bronze tablet was placed June 21st, 1913 with the following inscription:
"Here lies buried the body of Rev. William Worcester, the first minister of Salisbury, who came from England about 1639 and died 1662. his stone was laid on his grave to prevent disinterment by wolves. This tablet is affixed by his descendants, 1913".

False and Faked Mayflower Genealogy
WARREN. Richard Warren's wife was not Elizabeth (Juett/Jewett/Jonatt)
Marsh. Richard Warren's parents have not been identified, and he has no
documented descent from Sir John de Warrene, Charlemagne, or anybody
else. Royal descent might be very likely for Richard Warren, given his
surname and apparent financial soundness in Plymouth; but his parents
will have to be identified first before any such claim can be made. [MD

DOTY. The IGI entry for Edward Doty's baptism in Shropshire, England in
1599 is fictional. [MF 11; MD 43:13; TAG 63:215]. His alleged 14 May
1598 baptism that occurred at St. Mary le Strand, Thurburton Hills,
Suffolk is also completely fictional. There is no such place as
Thurburton Hills, Suffolk according to the Suffolk Records Office; and
the parish of St. Mary le Strand, London was searched (at my expense) for
Edward Doty from 1595 through 1600 and no relevant entries were found.
No baptisms at all occurred on 14 May 1598 in that parish.
