      Other children would not be of age in 1725, that is to say born after 1704. No other quit claim deeds to John Knight found.
      John Pomeroy is probably not a son.
      Benjamin calls William a brother in 1784 deposition.
      Robert: Deed 1725. "Eldest son"
      Elizabeth: Deed 1725
      Jane: Deed 1725

At Hog Island 1672 with a new shallop built by John Seward, and acknowledged a paper as Mr "Pumry." Grand Jury 1674. Portsmouth tax abated March 1679-1680. Presumably he who witnessed for 8 [Thomas Pomeroy m Rebecca Brookings] and 9 [William Pomeroy m Elizabeth] 1683-4, but kinship can only be guessed at. Called "Sr" 1672, it might be assumed he had a son Richard.
