"As to the ancestry of Elizabeth Irish, Torrey (5) lists the wives of John1 and John2 Irish as Elizabeth -----. Since Torrey represents a fairly complete search of published sources to 1762, there is probably nothing in print prior to that date. Two later sources give conflicting data for the surname of the first wife of John2 Irish. She is given as Elizabeth Thurston (?) in 'Little Compton Families' (1967, rev. 1974), by B. F. Wilbur (6), and as Elizabeth Savory in 'Descendants of John Irish' (1964) by W. L. Irish (7). Since the latter author credits B. F. Wilbur as source of the Savory name, there is no basis for rejecting either name. Benjamin Franklin Wilbur died in 1964, and the editor who prepared 'Little Compton Families' has no information as to which name was given first. There was a nearby Thurston family (Edward1) with a daughter of the right name and age. The nearest Savory family was at Plymouth, some distance away, but with no suitable daughters. The alleged Risley connection seems to come from Virkus (8) and has been extensively studied by the Risley Family Associatin and rejected as impossible, per correspondence shown th this writer.. Any futher data on these inidentified wives would be most welcome."
