MB&D, Roser I:261, 262, Footnote 6: Christopher's wife Mary died in Ju ly of 1676. Connecticut county court records at New London, September,167 3, however, tell an interesting story. About three years before Chistophe rs wife's death, it seems that Elizabeth "Brawly" [Bradley, by then a wid ow with four children] was found guilty of fornication with Christopher Ch ristophers who was a "married man," the second of such offenses, and she w as now "neare the time of delivery." Delaying punishing due to her condi tion, the court nonetheless noted the "haniousness" of this crime and sta ted that she was to appear in public at a later date displaying the notic e: "Let the punishment of my whore dome be a warning to others; or el se to pay fifteen pound fyne." Elizabeth chose to pay the fine. Despite th is fact the Brewsters recorded the birth of John Christopers as the s on of Christopher and his wife Elizabeth <Brewster Book, Maryland 1:77>
The court record above apparently references the birth of a second chil d, unknown, with the earlier offense having resulted in the birth of Jo hn Christophers who dies in Jamaica 1702.

Stratton also recommended the following: "An excellent short account of Br ewster's life is given in Dawes-Gates 2:143-56, and, in a footnote on p. 1 51, documented information is included to support the good possibility th at Brewster had had some interest in the Virginia settlement, and th at he might have been the father of the Capt. Edward Brewster who was a re sident of that settlement and who returned to England in 1618. A contempor ary, Nathaniel Brewster of Brookhaven, Long Island, in spite of clai ms to the contrary, has been shown most likely not to have been relat ed to Elder Brewster's family (Donald Lines Jacobus, "The Family of Rev. N athaniel Brewster," TAG 12:199)The most comprehensive family history to da te is Emma C. Jones, The Brewster Genealogy, 2 vols. (1908), which is goo d, but with some errors. A fully documented account of Brewster's first fi ve generations is being prepared for the General Society of Mayflower Desc endants by its Historian General, Barbara Lambert Merrick. . ."
