[647] Note that Lainson may be conflating details about two different Edwards here. Legerton
suggest that there were two Edwards; the younger fled to Europe and America.

"1968 Strode-Stroud Supplement"
Dorothy Lainson, 1968
"Edward Strode (49) - The number 49 is his number on the Strode Lineage Chart which has
been kept in England; b. 1636; d. 1703. Lived in Downside. Because of his aid to the Duke of
Monmouth, along with his brother Barnett and wife who were martyred, Edward, with his family
and others, fled on the Ship Paysay by way of Wales to Holland where they lived about ten years
until the death of his wife.. Thereafter, they sailed for America. Edward (49) died on ship shortly
before their landing and was buried in New Jersey. Martha married Morgan Bryant and they took
to raise, her younger brother Samuel where he continued until his death, never having married.
George Strode went to Pennsylvania; William and Edward went to Berkeley County, Va. The
others settled in Amwell, N.J."

"Strode Family"
Vic Legerton [vnl@vnla.com]
"Edward Strode was born about 1663 to 1668, probably at Downside, Shepton Mallet, Somerset,
England, the son of Edward Strode and Joan Goninge. His wife's name is not known... It is very
likely that Edward Strode (born c.1665) with his wife fled to France or Holland in the reign of
James II (1685-1688)... Reports vary as to the destination of the fleeing Strodes. Some contend
they went to France to join the Huguenots and, due to persecution, later fled to Holland prior to
coming to the New World on the Paysay. Numerous accounts written by various U.S. descendants
refer to 'Hollander' or Huguenots (French Protestants)... It is agreed, I believe, that Edward, father
of the Strode children - George, Samuel, William, Edward, and probably of Martha and maybe
Jeremiah, and kinfolk Barnard - died on the Paysay (bound for America) shortly before docking at
port (probably Philadelphia) and was buried in New Jersey. This voyage must have been in 1697,
though tradition says 1703."
