Woodman Family of Newbury, Massachusetts


We are among the many, many descendents of  Lt. Edward Woodman of Corsham, Wiltshire, England who immigrated in 1635 to Newbury, Massachusetts. He and his wife Joanna Salway had 8 children and we are descended through his son Capt. John Woodman.

Please look at each family group that I am researching !
