"John Bundy was in boston in 1635; in Plymouth by 1636, indentured to William Brewster, where he was listed as able to bear arms in 1643; and served in the Narragansett expedtion of 164. He returned to Boston by 1649, and by 1662 was in Taunton."

"...In his list of passengers under "Mr. William Brewster," Bradford wrote "and a boy put to him called Richard More, and another of his brothers." Only young Richard survived that dreadful first winter; in the cattle division of 1627 he was still with the Brewsters..."
