Per Stott [2016:136]: "He married second, shortly after 16 May 1609, widow JOHANE (____) BLOUNT of Seagrave, Leicestershire. The required "Certificate for a Minster's Wife" confirmed by the testimony of two local justices of the peace that Johane Blount was "an honest, godlie, and sobere matrone, fitt in gods feare to be a wiffe to anye good christiane."
Stott [2016:136] cites: Certificate for Minister 's Wife;' 15 May 1609, showing intended marriage of Rev. William Binckes of Scalford to widow Johane Blount of Seagrave, Leicestershire (Lincolnshire Archives, DIOC/ CER W/42 folios 63-64).5

Rev. William Bincks was educated between 8 February 1577 and 1578; Received a G. A. at Gloucester Hall.5 He was Ordained a deacon between 23 February 1577 and 1578.5 He was Ordained a priest between 23 February 1577 and 1578.5
In John "The Elder" Musson's will dated 5 August 1577 at Rotherby, Leicestershire, England, Rev. William Bincks was named as an heir;
Per Stott [2016:143]: "The will of John Musson [the elder], of Rotherby, dated 5 Aug. 1577, proved 3 Oct. 1577,[49] mentions three children but no wife. William Bincks received a legacy of 20 shillings in John's will, and William and George Bincks were among the witnesses." Stott [2016:143:fn49] cites: Archdeaconry Court of Leicester, original wills, 1577 #79 [FHL 1,519,841].
Note: Per Stott [2016:144]: John "The Younger" Musson is called "'brother' when he was made executor to the will of John Musson of Rotherby in 1577."9 He was Vicar between 16 November 1580 and 29 May 1616 at Scalford, Leicestershire, England.5

In Emmott (?)'s will dated 17 January 1599/0 at Scalford, Leicestershire, England, Rev. William Bincks was named as executor;
Per Stott [2016:144]: "Among the legatees were William Bincks and the children of George Bincks. William was also a supervisor and witness. Two of the sons mentioned in John Musson's will, William and Hugh, are called sons-in-law (stepsons in the language of the day) in Emmott's will, thus providing evidence of John's earlier wife. The son Hugh was mentioned in the will of his grandfather Hugh Musson in 1572, but John called William his eldest son."10

     William Gull was born before 25 February 1620/21 at Lincolnshire, England.2 He was baptized on 25 February 1620/21 at Billingborough, South Kesteven District, Lincolnshire, England.2 He married Elizabeth Smith, daughter of Samuel Smith and Elizabeth Smith, circa 1656;
Her 2nd husband.3
William Gull died between 12 April 1701 and 18 December 1701 at Hatfield, Hampshire Co., Massachusetts, USA; Presumably died between the date of his will and the probate thereof.3

His estate was probated on 18 December 1701 at Hampshire Co., Massachusetts, USA.3

     William Gull was a witness to the      Much inaccurate information has been reported about the ancestry of Nathaniel DICKINSON, the immigrant and pioneer settler of Hadley, Massachusetts. Much of this was based on the publications Frederick Dickinson [1897] and Wharton Dickinson [1901]. These early works posit a descent for Nathaniel from "John Dykonsen", a 1th century freeholder in Yorkshire. Dickinson [19041] was said to have claimed that the Dickinsons were said to descend from Walter de Caen, later Walter de Kenson, a companion of The Conqueror. The latest published version of this descent seems to have been Smith [1978]. Smith goes further proposing a common descent for "virtually every colonial Dickinson family from Massachusetts to Virginia." There was also an effort to tie Nathaniel into Massachusetts Bay Colony as part of the Winthrop immigration ca 1630, settling first in Watertown, MA. Other examples recounting this (erroneous) ancestry include FBS [1942] (full name of author unknown), and Dickinson [1884].
     George McCracken [1980] judged this descent and its extension to the colonial universe of DICKINSON families "mostly rubbish." McCracken wrote: "The earlier generations are hardly acceptable...as connections between the individuals are unlikely." Later, Stott [1998] uses meticulous research to completely dismantle these earlier fantasies to conclusively show the family to have descended from a DICKINSON family in Billingborough, Lincolnshire, and only traceable back to mid-1500. He also shows that Nathaniel only arrived in the colonies (Wethersfield, CT) ca 1637, with his wife, Anna (_____) GULL DICKINSON (widow of John Gull) and at least five children (born prior to leaving Lincolnshire). Stott[1998:174-178] also discusses Nathaniel's step-son, William GULL (by Anna's first husband, John BULL), and some of the GULL family ancestry, showing that William and Nathaniel were cousins. More recently, Stott [2016] has identified Anna's maiden name as BINCKS and identifies the first generations of her ancestry.
     I have constructed my ancestry for Nathaniel DICKINSON using the work of Stott [1998] and Stott [2016] and urge others to read these two articles and reconsider their own work. (Images of the McCracken and two Stott articles are attached.) with Waters Dickinson.4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11

Reference: Stott [1998:173-178] containes valuable information on William and the GULL family of Billingborough, Lincolnshire, England.12
William Gull was a witness to Stott [2016:133-44] present some important evidence on the BINCKS and MUSSONancestry of Anna (BINCKS) GULL who married Nathaniel DICKINSON. with James Bincks.13 Nathaniel Dickinson (Sr.) and Anna/Annis/Agnes Bincks immigrated circa 1637 to Wethersfield, Hartford Co., Connecticut, USA;
According to Stott [1998:168]: "Nathaniel arrived in Wethersfield, Connecticut, between 26 June 1636, when his daughter Ann was baptized at Billingborough, and July 1638, when his son Samuel was born at Wethersfield)."
Stott cites: Wethersfield Deeds, 1:12 (FHL microfilm 005,991).14,15 William Gull was living in 1648 at Wethersfield, Hartford Co., Connecticut, USA;
Per Stott [1998:175]: "William Gull is first noticed in Wethersfield town records in 1648, when he was hired with three others to keep the town herd." Stott cites: "Henry R. Stiles, The History of Ancient Wethersfield, 2 vols. (1904; repr. Somersworth, N.H ., 1974).[note 25] I:178."16

     DEATH     19 May 1676 (aged 51), Greenfield, Franklin County, Massachusetts, USA
     John Dickinson was the son of Nathaniel Dickinson and Anna _____ Gull Dickinson and the husband of Frances Foote. About 1637 John emigrated with his family from England to Wethersfield, Connecticut. In 1648 in Wethersfield he married Frances Foote. He served as surveyor of highways in 1651. In 1659 John Dickinson moved to Hadley, Massachusetts in the Connecticut river valley. With the beginning of King Philip's war John most certainly manned the Hadley palisades against numerous attacks by King Philip's forces. As a volunteer he very briefly served under Capt. William Turner in one famous battle that ended in John's death. John Dickinson was killed by Indians during the retreat in Turner's Falls Fight (Battle of Peskeompskut). A memorial plaque near Nash's Mill, Greenfield Twp, Franklin Co, MA, commemorates the event as follows:
     "Captain William Turner of Boston a soldier in King Philip's War was mortally wounded while crossing the Pukcommeacon (Green) River and fell on the west bank May 19, 1676 on the retreat after the 'Falls Fight' at Peskeompskut (Turner's Falls) Forty men of his command fell that day Captain Samuel Holyoke with the survivors fought their way back to Hatfield." For more detailed information about the battle see William Turner's memorial. John Dickinson does not have an individual grave marker.
The manager of this memorial is a direct descendant of John Dickinson and will not transfer.
