Henry Phelps and Eleanor Sharp

HUSBAND:
Henry PHELPS. [Ancestors].
Henry is said to (probably-S1) be the father of Edward PHELPS.

Born in 1595 in (London, England)( Longdon, Warwickshire, England-S3); son of John PHELPS.

Henry married Eleanor SHARP. He is also said (S2) to have married (2) Hanna BESSET about 1620 in London, England; however if he had the five children, as indicated, by his wife Eleanor, that seems very improbable.

He died in Salem, Essex County, Massachusetts.

WIFE:
Eleanor SHARP. [Ancestors].
Born in 1595 in (London, England)( Longdon, Warwickshire, England-S3); daughter of Samuel SHARP [F31362]. (S2).

She married Henry PHELPS.

Source 2 also says that she married (2) Thomas TRESLER about 1629 in London, England. The fact that both she and Henry died in Salem, Massachusetts seems to indicate that this cannot be true.

She died on 15 Feb 1655 at Salem, Essex County, Massachusetts. (S2,S3); and was buried before 13 Mar 1654 at Salem, Essex, Massachusetts. (S2). [Note S2 has the burial before the death].
