Henry Short b. 1580 England

Looking for the name of this Henry Short's wife. His son was Henry Short b. 1601 in England. I would like also to know when the family came to America, where they landed and the name of the ship, if possible.

The second Henry Short married Sarah Glover, who was also born in England. They were married in 1648 at Newbury, MA and had a son also named Henry Short who was born in 1652 at Newbury, MA.

The third Henry Short married Sarah Whipple of Dorchester, MA in 1674. And I am descended from their son, Matthew Short who was born in 1688 at Newbury, MA and who married Margaret Freemen of Rehobeth, MA.

Matthew Short and Sarah Whipple had at least 10 children. Their daughter, Margaret Short, born 1716 at Newbury, MA, married Samuel Tingley of Attleboro, MA.

I have burial information from here on down, but I have no sources for the Short family or their wives families before their marriage into the Tingley family. Everything is from my grandmother's (now deceased) handwritten notes or the internet. If anyone knows of any documentation on the SHORT, FREEMAN, WHIPPLE or GLOVER Families, please let me know.

Thank you for your help! Fredreica
