This is my 2nd X-husband's line.
Brian Robert Rowley
Moses Rowley married Elizabeth Fuller 2 Apr 1652 in Barnstable,MA Her father was Capt. Mattew Fuller.
Now that's settled let's move on to Mattew.
His uncle Dr. Samuel Fuller who was on the Mayflower, paid for Matthew's education in England and that's most likely why he came to the Colony at a later date.
Capt Matthew Fuller
Birth: Oct., 1605, England
Barnstable, Barnstable County, Massachusetts, USA
