[5020] "Genealogy of the Ingersoll Family in America"
Lillian Drake Avery
Frederick H. Hitchcock, Grafton Press, New York, 1926.
p. 1: "Richard Ingersoll came to Salem in 1629 with Higginson, arriving June 29...
He died in Salem in 1644, probably soon after making his will, July 21, 1644...
Richard Ingersoll married in Sands, England, October 20, 1616, Agnes or
Ann Langley, who is said to be a cousin of John Spencer of Newbury."

"Richard Ingersoll of Salem, Mass.: His Marriage and Family"
Winifred Lovering Holman
NEHGR v90, p92 (Jan 1936)
"It has often been published that Richard Ingersoll of Salem, Mass., was married at Sandy,
Bedfordshire, England. 20 October 1616, to Agnes, or Ann, Langley. That he was certainly
of that shire when he came to New England in 1629 is proved by contemporary accounts. But
the date of the marriage as published is not correct. According to the Registers of St.
Swithin's at Sandy, abstracts of which were made by the rector in September 1935. Richard
Inkersall married Agnes Langlye on 10 October 1611. Their first child, Alice, was baptized
there 21 December 1612. It seems probable that Richard's children were born in this order:
Alice, George, Joanna, Sarah, John, Bathsheba, and Nathaniel, and possibly two of their
children died in infancy. Ingersoll data now in print are disappointingly inaccurate."
