Moses Cleveland

Source: The Genealogy Of The Cleveland and Cleaveland Families... .

Moses1 or Moyses1 Cleveland or Cleaveland, the common ancestor of all the Clevelands or Cleavelands of New England origin, came, when a youth, from Ipswich, Suffolk county, England.  According to family tradition he sailed from London, Eng., and arrived in America in the year 1635.  He first landed somewhere in Massachusetts, probably either at Plymouth, Plymouth co., or at Boston, Suffolk co., Mass.

MOSES1 CLEVELAND was born probably at Ipswich, Eng., about 1624 (according to court files of Woburn he was 39 years old in 1663), died at Woburn January 9, 1701--2, Maryed in Woburn y 26 7 m [September] 1648 Ann Winn, born, according to family tradition, in Wales, or, according to another account, in England, about 1626, died probably at Woburn prior to May 6, 1682 (no record of dates and places of either her birth or death), a daughter of Edward and Joanna (------) Winn.

There's a christening record for Isack, son of Moyses Cleveland in the registers of St. Nicholas, Ipswich, Co. Suffolk, England, here.  A brother, uncle, cousin, no relation....?
