    • BIOGRAPHY:

      Edward Dotey and Edward Leister were best friends who let a young lady, Constance, come between their friendship.
      Constance was a pretty girl with her father's high spirits. Dotey and Leister (Stephen Hopkin's servants, both named Edward), equally high spirited-they had been among the chief mutterers of mutiny before the compact was signed-soon found themselves competing ferociously for a kind word from her...Soon, where there had been easy camaraderie and friendship, there was sullen jealousy. Young Constance, childishly playing at courtly love, coyly encouraged the strife....At dawn on Jun 18, 1621, Dotey and Leister seized the swards and daggers and crept quietly out of the crowded house. Down the beach to a deserted stretch of sand they stalked. There, sword in hand, dagger in the other, they began Plymouth's first duel. Snarling, cursing, they raged up and down the shore. Dotey sank his rapier deep into Leister's thigh, and Leister, with a scream of rage and pain, slashed with his dagger at this friend's sword hand, gashing him viciously....By now their battle cries and clashing swords had awakened the colony, and several men came racing down the beach, lead by Miles Standish....Disarming the two culprits at the point of his own rapier, Standish marched them shamefacedly back to Governor William Bradford....Bradford game the two young men a stern lecture, and then as punishment ordered them strung up with had and heels together to "cool off their hot blood"....But within an hour their cries for mercy became so pitiful that Stephen Hopkins went to Bradford and asked him to pardon them, promising that he guaranteed their good behavior. Bradford was happy to agree and quickly ordered them cut down.
      (I found this story while typing in the end names of my family tree in 2006. At the time I did not write down the source but was so excited that I made a copy for the collection of histories that I had at that time. I think it came from the Stephen Hopkins line but am not sure.)
