  • Note:
    John came from England on the "Fortune" and landed at Plymouth in 1623 and was murdered by the Pequod or Narragansett Indians in the Narragansett Bay near Block Island, in 1636. His two sons, John aged 12, and Thomas, aged 10, at the time they came over from England in the "Elizabeth and Ann" in 1635, were with him at the time and were held by the Indians as captives, and were given up under the terms of treaty with the Narragansett Indians made afterward.

    Richard Oldham of Cambridge, Mass., was there as early as 1650, and was most certainly a brother to the youths, John and Thomas. the trio were certainly sons of John Oldham of Plymouth; some histories state that they were. John Oldham of Plymouth in 1629 or 1630, returned to England, and he was in England in 1635, the year said boys were brought over; they would not have been brought at their tender ages, in all probability, if their or nearest relative had not been coming or was not already here."

    Killed in his bark at Rhoide Island by the Indians August 1636.
