    Mr. Walker, first name unknown was born, married and died in England. He married unknown Browne, Widow Walker with son James age 15 and daughter Sarah age 17 came to New England in April 1635 in the ship "Elizabeth" On the same ship we find Jo Browne age 40 and Richard Walker age 24 and William Walker age 15, who may have been cousins but probably not brothers of the other Walker's, they think that the widow mother came later, and was one of the first purchasers in the town of Rehoboth, MA. The name Widow Walker is in the list of those that who in 1643 in value of their estates for a pro-rated distribution of lands, his estate was valued at 50 pd.. Her son James estate was also valued at 50 pd., but he and Mr. John Browne forfeited their allotments, as they removed to Taunton, MA, and remained there. Mr. John Browne, evidently brother of Widow Walker, was a man of prominence. He settled in Duxbury by 1635, and was in Taunton in 1643. He was commissioner of United Colonies for l year, and died in Swansea, MA, April 10 1662. On 23 Nov. 1665 he gave his cousin John Tisdale a dwelling house, and a house in Taunton to John Tisdale and cousin James Walker, John Tilsdale's brother-in-law. Widow Walker's two children James and Sara were servants of Jonathan Browne a Baker and came to New England with him.
