Looking for Edward BOSWORTH, who, was born about 1585, buried in October 1634 in Boston, Suffolk Co., Massachusetts; married Mary, died 18 May1648. Edward emigrated from Gravesend, England, on the Elizabeth & Dorcas and died aboard as the ship entered Boston Harbor.

He was accompanied by his wife, Elizabeth; daughter, Mary and her husband, William BUCKLAND and their son, Joseph; also, Edward's sons, Benjamin and Nathaniel. The group was preceeded to Massachussetts by Jonathan BOSWORTH.

My ancestor, Edward Bosworth,...

..., was born about 1585, buried in April 1634 in Boston, Suffolk Co., Massachusetts; married Mary, died 16 May 1648. Edward emigrated from Gravesend, England, on the Elizabeth & Dorcas and died aboard as the ship entered Boston Harbor.

I'm trying to find where he came from in England. Would any records relating the vessel Elizabeth & Dorcas exist, which may point the way? Any researchers in the Gravesend area that would be interested in searching for me?
