What We Know About This Family

Philip Roundy immigrated from the Isle of Guernsey to Salem in 1656.

We know that by his first wife, Philip had his two sons, Robert and Mark. His daughter Mary was his child with Anna Bush, his second wife. I can find no definitive information about Ann (Anna) other than the marriage record and her mention as his widow in the probate. He may have found employment in Salem as the custodian of a warehouse on the waterfront. He died when the youngest, Mary, was a child, and her mother referred to herself as a "poore widdow" with a "desolate case" and asked the probate court to grant the estate to her for the "maintenance of her poor orphant." The estate inventory was indeed sparse, and we have no way of knowing how they survived. Philip was the first Roundy of many descendants in various states.

More About Some of the Children

  • Robert Roundy was a coaster and was sometimes referred to as "Doctor." He had a warehouse in Beverly.

  • Mark fought in King Philip's War and was injured in the Narragansett Battle in 1675. A marriage record exists for Mark "Rounds" to Sarah Lariford, but I cannot find substantiation that this Mark is Philip's son, although many user trees say so

  • Mary Roundy and her husband Thomas Waters are our direct ancestors and have their own family group page.

What Else We Need to Learn

The goal of this project is to trace every line of ancestry to the arrival of its first immigrant to America. The basic information of each couple is considered complete when we know the dates of birth, marriage, and death for both spouses. their parents' names (or whether they were the immigrant), and the child or children in our ancestry line.

The research on this family is basically complete. A later re-check might reveal some of the missing dates and the origins of Ann Bush.
