Family of Richard Carver (614) & Margaret Skurrie
1433. Marie Carver. Marie was baptized in Filby, Norfolk, Eng., on 21 Dec 1615.30
Anderson says:30 “there is not further record [of Marie after her baptism], and problably died before 1637, althought she would have been old enough to marry in England before the rest of her family sailed for New England.”
1434. Elizabeth Carver. Born ca 1618 in England. Elizabeth was baptized in Filby, Norfolk, on 15 Oct 1618.30
Although in Randall and Allied Families144 it is stated that William Randall’s wife was Elizabeth Barstow, sister of Michael, George and William Barstow and daughter of of Matthew Barstow, it is more likely that this was Elizabeth Carver. See Robert Charles Anderson’s article30 “The wifes of Michael Barstow and Richard Carver of Watertown, Massachusetts and the identity of the wives of William Randall of Scituate and William Perry of Marshfield.” Elizabeth Carver was Richard Carver’s daughter by his first marriage to Margaret Skurrie. Matthew Barstow married as his third wife Grace (Walker) Carver, Richard Carver’s third wife.
ca 1640 Elizabeth married William Randall (1757) , son of Simon Randall (673) (ca 1574-) & Jane Stephens, in Scituate, MA.144 Born on 16 Mar 1598/9 in Grantham, Lincolnshire. William died in Scituate, MA, on 13 Oct 1693; he was 94.73 Occupation: cordwainer.
From Deane’s History of Scitute:56
William Randall came into Scituate before 1640. His farm was on the brook that falls into Till’s or Dwelley’s creek: His house was in the valley, twoenty rods north of the brook on the west side of the way, where stands  the mansion of Elisha Foster, sen. late deceased. There is no record of his marriage here: he probably married at Rhode Island, where we find some traces of him as early as 1636; or in Marshfield, where he seems to have been 1637. He was an enterprising and useful man in many respects; but unfortunately for himself, appears to have been litigious. There are several disputes on the Colony records, which he prosecuted with his neighbors about bounds of lands, and when the causes were decided against him, he seems not to have submitted very quietly. He was fined 1660, ‘for striking Edward Wanton,’ in one of these disputes: and in 1664, ‘for breaking the King’s peace by poakeing Jeremiah Hatch with a ho-pole, was fined 3s. 4d.’ Colony Records. He, with his wife were of the party that gained much strength from 1650 to 1670, which held it unlawful to pay religious teachers. His goods were occasionally taken by the constable. On one of these occasions, ‘1654 William Randall’s wife fined for abusing the Constable, Walter Hatch.’ Colony Records. After these troubles, they both settled down to quiet members of Mr Witherell’s church.
From Frank A. Randall’s Randall and Allied Families:144
William Randall, the founder. Born Eng., 1609, died Scituate (now Norwell), Mass., Oct. 13, 1693. Regarding him Savage27 says: ‘William Randall of Scituate, Mass., came fvrom the port of London in the ship Expectacon the 24th of April, 1635, to the Island of Providence (R.I.) He was twenty-six years of age and took the oath of Supremacy and Allegiance as then required of every person leaving England.’ He removed to Marshfield, Mass., 1637, where he tarried three eyars, then removed to Scituate, which adjoins Marshfield to north, the North River separating them. At Scituate he occupied a respectable position; a man of strong opinions and always ready to maintanin his rights; hence he developed a ‘litigious’ reputation, spending some time in courst as a defendant (PR). Many of the plaintiffs were related to him by marriage, or to some member of his family. In some of the causes that he lost, William Randall paid the damages in ‘shooes’, notable in the case of Joanna Kemton (PR, 1657, pp. 82,83) from which circumstance we are led to believe that William followed the occupation of ‘cordwainer’ or shoemaker. This opinion is strengthened by reference in Plymouth Colonty Probate Court records to paymetns made to William Randall, Sr., ‘for shooes’ in the settlement of the ‘Estate of John James’ in 1679/80 (MD, Vol. 19,p. 99). At various times William was Constable, Surveyor-of-Highways, a freeman and on lists of those ‘able to bear arms’. See Old Scitaute and Its Pioneer Families for details.
