Edward Bates arrived in Boston from England September 18, 1633 onboard the Griffin. On that ship were 100 passengers, including Anne Hutchinson who would play a part in his life. Most on the Griffin were likely followers of Reverend John Cotton who had already made his way to Boston. On the passenger list was the Reverend Jonathan Lothrop who had conducted separatist services in Edgerton, Kent and London, and the Rev. Zachariah Symmes of Canterbury, Kent.
Edward came as a servant to Thomas Leverett, [a lawyer Alderman from Boston, England who had come previously with John Cotton and would also
be an Elder in the First Church of Boston], but he soon earned his freedom, and became a freeman in 1637. He married Lydia Fairbanks and embarked on a brief but colorful life in the new Boston


Edward married Lydia Fairbanks, daughter of Richard Fairbanks and Elizabeth Dalton. (Lydia Fairbanks was born on 13 Jun 1622 in Boston, Boston, Lincolnshire, England and died on 12 Oct 1704 in Prob. Chelmsford, Middlesex, Ma.)
