The name proposed for James Cudworth's wife appears to derive from a
garbled mention of someone called "Goodman Cudworth," "Goodman" being
a title of respect, below the social level of "Mr."
Robert Charles Anderson, The Great Migration, 1634-1635, vol. 2, pp.
249-58, contains the best genealogical account of James Cudworth.
Anderson states that Cudworth's wife was Mary Parker, whom he m. at
Northam, co. Devon, on 1 Feb. 1633/4 (p. 254); on p. 255, Anderson
provides a full explanation of why he concludes that this marriage is
that of the immigrant.
