When Philip Roundy came to America from England, he settled in the rustic village of Salem in the Massachusetts Bay Colony, in the throes of a powerful religious turmoil. The first settlers had practised a rigid moral code and when Roger Williams and Ann Hutchinson ventured to suggest more liberal ideas, remonstrances and eviction from the town was the lot of the innovators. Even the chaste Quakers were not permitted to remain in this place for fear of spreading evil influence. Witchcraft was beginning to make its appearance. As Philip looked for a means of' earning a livelihood, it is thought that he found employment as a custodian of one of the warehouses on the waterfront. He is believed to have married twice, the name of the first wife unknown. Philip's marriage in Salem to Ann Bush was November 1671. Philip Roundy died in the spring of 1678. Salem records contain the inventory of his estate and allowed in court :at Salem the 27th day of April, 1676, and "administration granted to Ann, the relic of ye deceased. It is thought that Philip was born on the lsle of Guernsey in the English Channel before sailing to America from England. (Information from ROUNDY FAMILY IN AMERICA ,p. 3-7, 331)

The actual probate documents are missing according to NEGHS.
