    NOTES: Mass. and Maine Families in the Ancestry of Walter Goodwin Davis Vol. 1, page 444-445: Osman Dutch was in Massachusetts in 1639, when he sold property in Bridport, England and sent for his wife Grace and son Robert. He settled with his family in Gloucester where he was a selectman in 1650. He was probably born about 1603, as he approximates his age as 60 in 1663. His wife was about 50 in 1664. He died in November, 1684, and administration of his estate, which was appraised a 83 L:10 s, was granted to his widow and son Robert. "The poor distressed widow Grace Dutch," finding that her provision inadequate for her support, petitioned the court in July, 1685, for permission to dispose of the real estate, two of her sons, Samuel and Hezekiah, already having consented thereto. Thereafter she sold various parcels of real estate to William Ellery, Christopher Hodgkins and her son-in-law Samuel Elwell with whom she lived for ten years after her husband's death...

    From Directory of Ancestral Heads of New England Families 1620-1700 by Holmes: Osman or Osmyn was admitted an inhabitant of Newport, R.I., 1638, was at Gloucester, Mass., 1646.
