Simon Willard (ca. 1605-1676) was a son of Richard Willard of Horsmonden, England. He immigrated from England to Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1634, and by 1635 had moved to settle in Concord, Massachusetts. He married three times (once in England). Descendants and relatives listed lived chiefly in New England. Includes direct ancestry in England. Also includes records of others in England with the Willard surname to about 1084 A.D., as well as some in Germany, France and elsewhere. Some of the Willards of Germany later immigrated to Maryland and elsewhere. There were also other Willard immigrants to New England who were not in the direct lineage of Simon Willard, and the book contains some genealogical and family data about them.
