    Notes 
    • Joshua Bramhall was a clothier (id est cloth man, fr.) and owned a fulling mill in Plymouth; was a man of great energy and business capacity, and accumulated a large property. In 1729 he moved from Plymouth to Falmouth, and lived on the farm left by his father George Bramhall, until 1759, when he again returned to Plymouth, where he lived until his death in 1763. The large property left by his father remained in the family until 1759, when it was sold by the heirs to William Vaughn, and it is probable that the purpose of Joshua's removal to Falmouth in 1729, was to effect an advantageous sale of the property, and to close up the settlement of his father's estate. For further particulars of the life of Joshua Bramhall, see "Landmarks of Plymouth" by William T. Davis. See also letter of W.T. Davis (the historian) to W.L. Bramhall, Plymouth, Mass., Dec 4th 1886.)

      "C.H.B. family memorandums," Handed down from Lula Bramhall to Laura Lucille Walkinshaw to Doris Shaw to Brian Nielsen.

      James W. Bramhall posted "I found grave sites for my eighth great grandparents in the Pilgrims Cemetary Plymouth, MA on both sides. I also found Sarah Tillson's grave site. The grave sites are #444, #445 & #453. I also have found a tax record for George Bramhall in Dover, MA "1650" much earlier than the 1680 time frame reported in the Bramhalls in America book. I have also found lineage from the Mayflower through Sarah Tillson's mother who is buried next to Sarah. On her grave stone, it indicated that she was the only daughter of Col. Tom Doty. Tom Doty is a direct decendant of Edward Doty of the Mayflower."
