  1. [S578] Karle S. Packard, "Samuel Packard of Bridgewater, Massachusetts and His Family", Packard's Progress 17 (Feb. 1991): As a result of the research of Brig. J. John Packard of London we can now be reasonably sure that our Samuel Packard was the third son of George and Mary (Wyther) Packard, baptized 17 September 1612 in Stonham Aspal, Suffolk, England [Stonham Aspal Parish Register Transcript. LDS film 991989]. This conclusion is presumptive, but is based on the fact that no other Samuel Packard of an appropriate age has been found in East Anglia, and this Samuel is not present in later English records, an indication that he went to America. Our Samuel is next found in the record of Daniel Cushing, the town clerk of Hingham, Massachusetts, where he is listed among those arriving 10 August 1638 at Boston on the "Diligent" of Ipswich, which left Ipswich in June. 2 He came with wife, Elizabeth, and a child, and was said to be "from Windham" (Wymondham) in Norfolk. This group of colonists settled in Hingham and we find further records of Samuel and his family there. Why and for how long Samuel was in Wymondham or its vicinity we do not know, nor has there been any success in finding some record of him there despite many attempts, but it is no longer reasonable to infer that, because he was "from Wymondham", this locality is likely to be the chief source of information on his early life in England.
