He married Mary Pabodie (1648-1728) 16 November 1669 in Plymouth, Plymouth County, Massachusetts.

Research Notes

Edward Southworth was son of Constant Southworth and Elizabeth Collier. And the grandson of Edward & Alice Carpenter from Wrington, Somerset, England.

It appears he was active in Duxbury's civic duties between 1667 - 1691. So I see he must of have lived all of his life in Duxbury, Plymonth,MA.
