" 3. Rebecca2 Wheelock (Ralph1), baptized 24 Aug 1634, in Eccles, Norfolk, England,3 died Nov 1667, in Roxbury, Suffolk, MA.4 She married John Crafts 7 Jun 1654, in Roxbury, Suffolk, MA.4 John Crafts was born 10 Jul 1630, in Roxbury, Suffolk, MA,4 died 3 Oct 1685, in Roxbury, Suffolk, MA.4 Notes for Rebecca Wheelock: The record of Rebecca's baptism was found at the village of Eccles, which is just west of Banham, Norfolk, England, where the baptismal record of Rebecca's sister, Mary, was found. It reads as follows: "Rebeckah Wheelocke filia Radolphus Wheelocke & Rebeckah Uxoris eius baptisatus Vicesimo quarto [24th] Aug: 1634" The Roxbury Vital Records indicate that Rebecca died in childbirth, though no such child is shown in the VRs. The date of death is given as 28 Nov 1667; the date of burial 24 Nov 1667 [sic]."

"Thomas Crafts, born about 1656, in Roxbury, Suffolk, MA,12 died 27 Feb 1692.12 The birth of Thomas Crafts to John and Rebecca does not appear in the Roxbury Vital Records. However, James and William Craft in their "Crafts Family Genealogy" argue that Thomas Craft of Hadley, MA was the first child of John and Rebecca, born circa 1656."

"iv. Peregrina Wheelock, died 1 Apr 1671, in Medfield, Norfolk, MA.1 She married John Warfield 26 Oct 1669, in Medfield, Norfolk, MA.1 The birth of Peregrina is not recorded in Dedham or Medfield, nor has any record of her birth been found in England. Early genealogical writings for the Wheelock surname often report that Rebecca Wheelock gave birth to a daughter at sea during their 1637 voyage to the Massachusetts Bay Colony. If there is any truth to this story, then it must have been Peregrina, since the births of the other children are accounted for. In this regard, the name "Peregrina" is suggestive. The word peregrinate means "to journey or travel from place to place". It is derived from the latin peregrinari which means "to travel in foreign lands". Ralph, schooled in latin, might very well have chosen this name based on the circumstances of her birth."
... "The Wheelock Family in America (1637-1969)", by Walter T. Wheelock, privately published, pg. 93. It is suggested here that Rebecca gave birth to a daughter while at sea. (Mr. Wheelock's original source is not known at the time this footnote was written.) Other Wheelock genealogies have reported that Rebecca was born at sea, and that Mary was born at sea. The research of Christopher Gleason Clark disproves the assertions that Mary or Rebecca were born on ship, leaving Peregrina as the only candidate, since the birth place of the remaining children is well accounted for."
