Re: Hugh PARSONS of Springfield, Mass. "..appears on town records of Springfield 27 Oct 1645...Mr. Parsons married Mary Lewis on the date above mentioned...'Hugh Parsons married (____)Lewis, 'the wife of one Lewis a papist of Wales'{WINTHROP PAPERS}"[NEW ENG. HIST. AND GEN. REGISTER article by Gerald J. Parsons]
"Hugh Parsons of Springfield, Mass died in Watertown, Mass. 18 June 1675..." [GEN. OF THE FAMILIES AND DESC. OF THE EARLY SETTLERS OF WATERTOWN, MASS., 1860 p. 869]

The Hugh Parsons of Rhode Island, and the father of Hannah [Parsons] Matteson, made his will 11 Jan 1684 at Portsmouth, RI - the will was filed for probate at Portsmouth 14 Mar 1684.
There has been no birth date found, to my knowledge, of our Hannah Parsons who married Henry Matteson Sr. Many mistakenly use the birth date of the other Hannah Parsons who was born at Springfield, Mass 7 Aug 1746.
