Much to my surprise, I found many records for the family of William Denison and his wife Margaret. Although, they are not consistent, it is apparent that some vital records do occur for these people.
Margaret 's death [mother of Captain George Denison], is one that is recorded as the "old mother". [CR. 1 is the church records of First Religious Society [Unitarian]
"1645 DENISON Margret [Dennison, old mother. C. R. 1.], w. William, bur. Feb. 3, 1645. [1645-6. C. R. 1.] Death/Roxbury"
The marriage record of George Denison and his first wife Bridget Thompson:
"1640 TOMSON (see also Thompson), Bridget, and George Denison, Mar. —, 1640. Marriage/Roxbury"
Their daughter, Sarah's birth (but not her sister Hannah):
1641 DENISON Sarah, d. George,1 Mar. 20, 1641. [1641-2. C. R. 1.] Birth/Roxbury
And sadly Bridget Thompson Denison's death:
"1643 DENISON (see also Dennison), Bridget, w. George [fever and consumption, C. R. 1.], bur. Aug. —, 1643. Death/Roxbury"
It is wonderful to see these old records!
