NOTES: Robert settled in Ipswich early in 1635. He came from Norwich, Norfolk County, England as owner and master of the ship Angel Gabriel. Robert was an innkeeper. His sister, Mary, was the wife of Robert Burnham. Her sons were: John, Thomas, and Robert Burnham. 1640. May 13 (Ipswich Papers), Robert Andros is granted to draw wine for retail at Ipswich, with the condition of the town. (i.e., "if he do not wittingly sell to such as abuse it by drunkenness.")

In a book Ancient Pemaquid by J.W. Thornton, 1857, it says: "On the last Wednesday of May in this year (1635) the Angel Gabriel, a strong ship of 240 tons, and carrying a heavy armament of 16 guns swung at her moorings in the King's Road, four or five miles distant from the city. Her destination was Pemaquid. On her deck was a company of many Godly Christians, some from other ships, bound for New England; one of them was Richard Mather, visited there by Sir Ferdinando Georges, but the chief personage in the company was John Cogswell, a London merchant of wealth who with fragments of his freight, and accompanied by his servants settled at Ipswich.

The ship in a fury of an easterly storm with her cargo were totally lost; some of the passengers not escaping death. This shipwreck is chronicled as one of the greatest disasters in the annals of Pemaquid."
