      13 MAY 2021

      Society of Mayflower Descendants #86727 - Approved 21 Mar 2014
      The General Society of the Mayflower Descendants penned the following notes on the approved application paper:

      ~Isaac Walker born ca Dec 1667 or Jan 1667/8 probably in Plymouth

      ~He died after 08 Nov 1713 & perhaps Jul 1719 probably in Plymouth.

      ~*(the only thing we know for sure is that he married Desire Shelly on 08 Jul 1692)

      ~His wife died probably in Woodbridge, NJ after Aug 1708 & perhaps in 1713.

      (Isaac Walker is the 3rd generation Mayflower Descendant)
    • Birth of Isaac Walker

      1. Records do not mention anything about a child being born to Francis Walker and Elizabeth. 2. One documented vital record was discovered for Isaac Walker when he married in Woodbridge, NJ, 8 July 1692 to Desire Shelley. (nothing new has surfaced) 3. Isaac became confirmed as the son of Elizabeth & Francis Walker when he appeared 1702-1705 selling land in Middleboro, formerly belonging to my honored father Francis Walker. 4. Although his birth and death dates are not precisely known, Isaac Walkers birth can be calculated to have occurred in Dec. 1667 or Jan. 1667/8, based on the date of Elizabeth's transgression and marriage. She would have been about 22 years old.
      5.Isaac was thus about 24 years of age at marriage. He probably d. about 1719, and something sudden must have happened to him as no will has been found for him.
      6.It is reasonable to assume Elizabeth died within a few years of giving birth to her son Isaac Walker. Elizabeth would have died when Isaac was between five and ten years old.

      WALKER family in New Jersey

      To summarize what is known to date, Isaac Walker was b. probably Plymouth ca Dec. 1667 or Jan. 1668. He probably d. about 1719, and something sudden must have happened to him as no will has been found for him. He married in NJ in 1692. He may have been named after a presumed older brother of his father Francis Walker. With the apparently early death of his mother, it is very likely he was raised by his grandfather, George Soule, in Duxbury, at least until his grandmother died in 1676. Thus, Isaac would have had reason to name a son after his grandfather. About age ten, Isaac Walker could have started working in his uncle Samuel Walker?s merchantile establishment in Boston. The relationship with this uncle, and probable involvement in this uncle?s extended business enterprises from Maine to New Jersey, continued and culminated in Isaac apparently accompanying this uncle to Woodbridge, NJ, about 1692. Thus, Isaac would have reason to name a son after his uncle Samuel. Furthermore, another Walker uncle was George Walker, who along with his mother Hannah, were made executors of the estate of Joseph Walker of Portsmouth, NH, 1683.[26]

      The children of Isaac and Desire (Shelley) follow, in the fourth generation from George Soule:
      1. ELIAS WALKER, b. Woodbridge, NJ, 3 Apr 1693; d.
      perhaps Chesterfield, Burlington Co., NJ ca. 1720-
      46; m. ca 1715 Elizabeth Doughty??
      2. ISAAC WALKER, b. Woodbridge, NJ [1695]; d. perhaps
      Burlington Co. NJ ca 1731;
      m1. ca. 1718 Deliverance -----; m2. Burlington, NJ 4
      Dec 1728 Mary Horner
      3. GEORGE WALKER, b. NJ? ca. 1698; d. Freehold, NJ, Jan-
      Oct 1747; m1. ca 1723 Elizabeth??; m2. ca 1736
      Gertrude (or Jerusha?) Clark??
      4. FRANCIS? WALKER, b. NJ? ca 1700/1; d. ca 1730; m. ca
      1729 Mary??
      5. SAMUEL? WALKER, b. MA? ca 1703/4; d. Piscataway, NJ?
      ca 1730; m. ca 1729 Alice??
      6. DESIRE WALKER, b. Little Compton/Swansea, MA? ca 1706;
      d. Metuchen, Union Co., NJ 22 Dec 1779; m.
      Woodbridge, NJ, ca 1733 Joseph Freeman
      7. CHILD? WALKER, b. NJ? ca 1709; probably d.y.; n.f.r.

      The first two sons apparently set down in Burlington County, NJ, where, if they raised families to adulthood, the records have yet to be found. First son Elias Walker is elusive and may be the E. Walker who was witness to a 22 May 1719 deed between Jacob Doughty of Chesterfield, Burlington Co., West Jersey, and William Satterwaste, yeoman, of same.[27] The third son, George Walker, as ?labourer,? first bought 100 acres in Freehold, NJ, 17 Aug. 1720,[28] apparently right after his father died. George Walker had to be at least 21 years of age to purchase land, giving him a projected birth year of 1698.
