Biography: Sydrach Williams was born to Alice Pemberton and James Williams. He was the brother of Roger Williams of Providence, Rhode Island.

1600: Birth

I have no reliable records of his birth date. Currently, I’m using 10 Jan 1600 as his birth date which is the most common date I’ve seen. If Robert was born in 1600, his father, James, would have been 38 and his mother, Alice, 35.

The second most common is 10 Jan 1599 but I think this is an indication of an English double date. Modern birth records range from 1595 to 1607. I have seen a mention of a 1621 marriage record indicating 1595, but I have yet to see the actual record.

1620: Death of Father

His father James passed away on September 7, 1620, in London, London, England, at the age of 58.

1621: Marriage to widow Anne Tyler

Anne’s first husband was Frances Pinner.

1628: Death of Sister Catherine

His sister Catherine died in 1628 when Robert was 24 years old.

1634: Death of Mom

His mother Alice passed away on August 1, 1634, in London, London, England, at the age of 70.

1647: Death

His brother Sydrach died on April 29, 1647, in England when Robert was 43 years old.

Mike’s throwback title simply means he writes about philosophy, science and history with a focus on exploring boundaries and intersections. While his focus is on our rational ideas about empirical observations, he does enjoy dabbling in the irrational. His exploration of the empirical led him to develop his Idea of Ideas which allows him to understand what is empirical, rational, and irrational as well as to easily understand what is empirically true, rational true, and irrationally false.
