Pedigree for William Lemuel Horn II
     Eglin Hatherly was baptized on 8 June 1586 in Winkleigh, Devon, England.1 She was the daughter of Robert Hatherly and Ellinor (—?—) (Hatherly).1 She married NN Downe by about 1609 in England.1 She married Jeffrey Hanford on 31 March 1611 in Alverdiscott, Devon, England.1 She married Richard Sillis on 15 December 1637 in Scituate, New Plymouth Colony.1 She died after 17 January 1653/54 (when named in will of her third husband).1
     Eglin was a widow living in Alverdiscott, Devon, when on 10 April 1635, "Eglin Hatherly," aged 46, and "2 daughters, Margaret Hanford," aged 16, and "Eliz[abeth] Hanford," aged 14, along with "Rodolphus Elmes," aged 15, and "Tho[mas] Stansley," aged 16, were enrolled at London as passengers for New England on the Planter. They arrived in Boston in June 1635. Daughter Lettice, who married in Scituate in 1635, clearly preceded her mother to New England. Susanna may also have come before 1635.2 She settled in Scituate where on 21 November 1635, ""Egglin Hanford, Mr. Hatherley's sister" was admitted to Scituate church.1 She was called "Eylin Hanver" in the will of her mother in 1637.1 On 24 February 1640/41, "Tymothy Hatherley of Scituate" deeded to "Egline Hanford of Scituate aforesaid five acres of land ... which land lyeth in Scituate on the north side of the Stony Brook the third lot from the brook"; annotated "This land was given to the said Egline Hanford the xxvijth day of September in the year Anno Domini 1634" (the year before her arrival).1
