The following data is extracted from Descendants of Edmund Weston.
EDMUND WESTON, the progenitor of that portion of the Weston family who settled in Plymouth Colony (There is a tradition that a brother of Edmund Weston, soon after, his arrival, came from England and settled in the Colony. I am unable, however, to find any record or trace of such a person), came to Boston in the ship Elizabeth & Ann, and settled in the town of Duxbury in the year 1635. In the passenger list his age is put at thirty years. There is a tradition that in the old country his trade was a thresher of grain. Soon after coming into town he entered himself as an apprentice unto John Winslow and Nathaniel Thomas, and in 1639 formed a co-partnership with John Carver for planting and farming. In 1640 he had a grant from the colony of four acres at Stony Brook, Duxbury, and a tract of land near Green Harbor. In 1643 he was one of the men who were enrolled to bear arms. In 1652 was a surveyor of highways, and from this time his name frequently appears in connection with town affairs and in various public matters. Winsor, in his history of Duxbury, speaks of him as "the enterprising ancestor of an enterprising family whose descendants have been numerous, and most of them have resided in town." He married late in life, probably a De La Noye (afterwards called Delano). A copy of Edmund Weston's will is found among the early records of Plymouth, B. 8, p. 16. It bears date Feb. 18, 1686, and was admitted to probate June 3, 1686. He died in Duxbury in the 80th year of his age, respected and honored by all who knew him. The children of Edmund Weston were:
- ELNATHAN, b. 1657; d. April 23, 1724.
- MARY, in. John Delano and lived in Duxbury.
- EDMUND, b. 1660; d. Sept. 23, 1723.
- JOHN, b. 1662: d. 1736.
