The immigrant William<1> Gifford settled in Sandwich, Mass. on Cape
Cod. Many of the
Cape Giffords have been Quaker and there were several marriages with the
Nantucket. You might find interesting the book by A.L. Bowerman "A
History, Some Descendants of Thomas Boreman (c.1623-1663) of Barnstable,
Colony, with allied Families: Bowman, Clifton, Gifford, Hoag & Wing"
Baltimore, MD, 1998.
