Humphrey Munning and Elizabeth Winthrop are exciting ancestors. Elizabeth was a cousin of Governor John Winthrop of the Great Migration fame and founder of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. Elizabeth's father was William Winthrop, son of Adam Winthrop. When Adam left London for the rural country life at Groton, William remained in London to carry on the business. Elizabeth was born in London in 1569. Her father died when she was young, in 1581. We don't know what became of her before her marriage, but it is not out of the question that she went to live at Edwardstone and Groton with her relatives.
From this point forward Humphrey's name appears in the journal. Adam Winthrop loaded him books, money and the two visited each other's homes. Adam also made not of attending Humphrey's sermons at various local churches, calling one a Godly and learned sermon.
The pair had at least 10 children by 1624. Elizabeth, the eldest daughter married in 1616, so she was probably born about 1595.
Humphrey died in 1624, aged about 62. He was buried at the church in Brettenham on the 24th of June. Elizabeth wrote her will around the same time, many of her children were under age at that time. Elizabeth outlived him by seven years, dying in 1631. Elizabeth named her married daughter Elizabeth Salter wife of George, sons: Richard, Theophilis, William, then Anne, Ellen, Humphrey, Abigail, Katheryn and finally Leonard.
George and Elizabeth Munning Salter were the parents of Abigail Salter Hammond.
