1. William Story was born about 1614 supposedly at Norwich, England, and supposedly the son of a Robert Story. I believe neither of these assertions because I've seen no primary evidence of either. William Story died at Ipswich, Massachusetts about 1702/3. He married about 1640 at Ipswich, Sarah Foster, born about 1620 and died after June 1681, daughter of Renald and Judith (Wignol) Foster. William was a carpenter and a servant to Mr. Dix. He had eight children: Sarah, Seth, Samuel, William, Abigail, Mary, Hannah, and Susannah.
