Any info re John Partridge b abt 1620 Eng sailed to MA, US on Speedwell 1650

I'm trying to locate any information about the English birth and lineage of My GGGGGGGF John Partridge: b abt 1620 Eng, d 1706 Medfield, Norfolk, MASS U; m 15 Dec 1655 in Medfield Norfolk Co MASS US to Magdalene Bullard (b 18 Oct 1635 Barnham Parrish Eng d 27 Dec 1676 Medfield, Norfolk Co MASS US).

My GGGGGGGF John Partridge sailed from the British Isles with his Brother William and Sister Margaret Partridge in 1850 on the "Speedwell." They landed in New England in 1850 (probably Boston). They all lived in Durham, MASS by 1652 and then settled in Medfield Norfolk Co MASS US in 1854.
I have some indication they may have lived in Middlesex, maybe Bethnal Greene, before embarking. John and William Partridge witnessed the will of a John (or Adam) Beebe, who died on board the Speedwell (will in Conn, US probate records).

Margaret (Margery) Partridge: b abt 1625 Eng d 1695 Medfiled, MASS, US.
William Partridge: b abt 1622 Eng d 1692 Medfield, Norfolk, MASS US.

Any info or suggestion of resources would be greatly appreciated. They were originally felt to be the children of a Captain John Partridge of Navestock Eng but this was disproven.
One lead I found on ancestry.com OneworldTree, which may be incorrect, is a John Partridge: b 1600 St. Martins Ludgat, London, London. Eng; d 1652 MASS, US (? I don't follow this). It states he had a son John Partridge (b 1620 Navestock Essex Eng; no death date) with a Francis Partridgewife (b 1592 in Olney, Buckinghamshire, Eng; no death date).
He married spouse #2 in 1616 in Navestock Essex Eng. She was Jane Hogge; b 1593 in Beddingshall, Navestock, Eng, d 1626 in Medfield Norfolk, MASS US.
They list a number of children:
Mary Partradge Partridge b 1615 Navestock Essex Eng d Duxbury Plymouth MASS
Mary Partrdige b 167117 in Sutton Kent Eng
Mary Partridge b 1`618 in Boston Suffolk MASS US
John Partridege b 1620 Stepney St Dunstan Eng; F: Captain John Partridge (b 1578 d 1652)
John Partridge b 1620 Navestock Essex Eng; F John Partridge (b 1600 d 1652)
William Partridge b 1622 Medfield Suffolk MASS US; F: Captain John Partridge (b 1578 d 1652); F: Captain John Partridge (b 1578 d 1652)
William I Partridge b 1622 Eng; F: Captain John Partridge (b 1578 d 1652)
William I Partridge b 1622 Medfield Suffolk MASS US
Jane Partridge b 24 Oct 1622 Eng
Jane Partridge b 1624 Navestock Essex Eng; F: Captain John Partridge (b 1578 d 1652)
Margaret or Margery Partridge b 1625 Navestock Essex Eng.
Elizaberth Partridge b 1627 Navestock Essex Eng
Margaret or Margery Partridge b 1628 Navestock Essex Eng

Any help or direction you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Robert,

I am searching for a John Partridge as well, I believe my John Partridge came from Boston or somewhere in the New England States, our information lists his wife as Christine Crooks or Crook. Do these facts match any of your Partridges, this John came to Nova Scotia and as family stories go was lost at sea, I think in the late 1700's but information is not good. If there is a connection I have a whole branch of Partridges for you in Nova Scotia.

Regards,
Mike Partridge

Interesting...Yours is the first reference I have seen in regard to the specific ship on which John, William, and Margaret arrived in America. I have Dedham, MA not Durham as you mentioned. I would be interested in your source for this information. Please contact me. morris@rose.net
