Families I am researching - alphabetical listing
(with some links to documentation)

The main purpose of this list is to give a basic outline of each my ancestral families, so that other researchers can quickly determine whether or not our research interests overlap, and see where my information runs out. Some of the families have documentation included, in which case there are links to pages giving more details. Eventually, the documentation for more families will be included.

Each family starts with the earliest generation for which I have proof, and proceeds one generation at a time until reaching a woman who marries into another family. An asterisk (*) indicates that more information will be found under the appropriate family heading. For the most part, I have limited these outlines to that information which can be solidly documented in primary sources, but there is one main exception to this. To date, I have not done a large amount of research on my New England lines, and much of the information given here on those lines is based on good secondary sources which I have not yet checked in the primary sources. With this exception (and a couple of others clearly noted), the remaining lines given here are based on primary sources or (when the primary source was unavailable to me) on copies or abstracts of primary sources. The abbreviation "rec." means "recorded at" and indicates where the event was recorded (but not necessarily where it took place). On a few occasions, where I had strong evidence for a relationship which fell short of outright proof, I have included the information as "probable", always clearly marked as such. In these outlines, "probable" always means more than just "written down somewhere", and I do not make such a claim without significant supporting evidence. If there is one or more of these "weak links" in the line between the indicated individuals and myself, the data is italicised. The symbol "×" between two dates means that the event occurred between those two dates. Direct ancestors are given in bold face. Individuals familiar with these families will sometimes note that I have sometimes excluded data (often several generations) which appears in other accounts of those families. The reason for this will generally be that I am not satisfied with the evidence, and reasons for excluding the information will often be given in the notes. Of course, typographical errors or other mistakes are always a possibility, and I would appreciate being informed of any errors.

AGNEW (uncertain [1])

Patrick Agnew, of Kilwaughter.

Patrick Agnew, of Kilwaughter, co. Antrim, gent., will dated 1 July 1724, proved 9 July 1725, m. Martha Houston.

Margaret Agnew, m. James Crawford*.

[1] The information given here is all well documented. The connection is listed here as a "uncertain" connection because of a later weak link.

BAIRD (1)

Moses Baird [1], of Lancaster co., PA, b. ca. 1736, d. Westmoreland co., PA, ca. 1782, m. Margaret Brown, who d. Fayette co., PA, 10 Feb. 1787.

John Baird, b. Bucks co., PA, 13 Feb. 1760, d. 24 Dec. 1843, bur. Lebanon cem., Guernsey co., OH, m. Susannah Frame*.

James Baird, b. 1787×8, d. Guernsey co., OH, 23 April 1863, bur. Londonderry cem, m. Guernsey co., OH, 3 April 1821, Jane Campbell*.

John W. Baird, b. Guernsey co., OH, 24 Jan. 1824, mayor of St. Charles, IA, 1885-6, d. Warren co., IA, 1 March 1896, bur. St. Charles, m. Guernsey co., OH, 15 March 1849, Nancy Crawford*.

Matthew Robinson Baird, b. Guernsey co., OH, 7 Feb. 1853, d. Des Moines, Polk co., IA, 25 April 1927, m. Jefferson co., IA, 14 March 1877, Alice Celinda Baird Weede*.

John Stewart Baird, b. near St. Charles, Warren co., IA, 14 Jan. 1884, d. Des Moines, Polk co., IA, 21 Dec. 1974, m. Des Moines, Polk co., IA, 30 Dec. 1908, Mrs. Edna May (Jones*) Lunger.

Grace Alvetta Baird, b. Des Moines, Polk co., IA, 10 July 1919, d. Littleton, Arapahoe co., CO, 18 Sep. 1979, m. Denver, CO, 17 Oct. 1948, Ralph Leslie Baldwin*.

[1] Some secondary sources have added one or more additional generations, but without any reasonable documentation that I have seen. To my knowledge, the parentage of Moses Baird remains unknown.


BAIRD (2)

Adam Baird, of Lancaster and Abbeville counties, SC, d. Abbeville co., SC, 1807.

John Baird, d. Abbeville co., SC, ca. 1798, m. (1) _____ Moore? [1], m. (2) Martha _____.

Lilias Baird, b. 12 Feb. 1784, SC, d. 22 July 1852, bur. Fairhaven cem., Preble co., OH, m. SC, 1807, Reuben Cooper Weed(e)*.

[1] Her name has been given as "Lilias McClurken" by some, but with no supporting evidence, and there is an early tradition that her maiden name was Moore, which seems to have more support. Since three of her grandchildren were named "Nancy M.", with "M." standing for Moore in at least one of those cases, it is reasonable to conjecture that her name was Nancy Moore.


BALDWIN

John Baldwin, of Howgill, in the township of Rimington and parish of Gisburn, co. York, later of Wheatley, in Pendle Forest, co. Lancaster, England, d. 22 12mo. [Feb] 1718/9, rec. Marsden MM, co. Lancaster, England, m. Bridget _____, who was living 7 1mo. [Mar] 1713/4. [1]

John Baldwin, of Wheatley, in Pendle Forest, co. Lancaster, England, later of Makefield, Bucks co., PA, came to America between 1698 and 1700 (probably 1699), d. 19 1mo. [Jan] 1757, m. (1) 11 12mo. [Feb] 1696/7, rec. Marsden MM, co. Lancaster, England, Jennet Hartley (still living 1700, PA), m. (2) 8 12mo. [Feb] 1707/8, rec. Falls MM, PA, Anne Scott*.

Jesse Baldwin, b. 26 1mo. [Jan] 1759, rec. New Garden MM, NC, d. 12 4mo. [Apr] 1831, rec. Goshen MM, OH, m. 15 12mo. [Dec] 1779, rec. Deep River MM, NC, Hannah Thornburgh*.

Ralph Leslie Baldwin, b. Lorain, OH, 21 Oct. 1913, d. Las Vegas NV, 18 July 1995, m. Denver, CO, 17 Oct. 1948, Grace Alvetta Baird*.

Stewart Leslie Baldwin (the author of this webpage)

[1] This first generation is almost certain, but direct proof is lacking.


BEALS

John Beals [1], d. 1726, Chester co., PA, m. 1682, rec. Chester MM, PA Mary Clayton*.

John Beals, b. 28 1mo [Mar] 1685, rec. Chester MM, PA, m. 14 9mo. [Nov] 1711, rec. Chester MM, PA, Sarah Bowater*.

Prudence Beals, d. 25 6mo. [June] 1815, rec. New Garden MM, m. 11 10mo. [Dec] 1746, rec. Fairfax MM, VA, Richard Williams*.

[1] I have seen his father's name given as either Thomas or William, but never supported by any reasonable evidence.


BEAMAN

George Beaman, of Derby, CT, m. Derby, New Haven co., CT, Aug. 1679, Mary Jackson*.

Mary Beaman, d. Derby, New Haven co., CT, 27 Oct. 1743, m. Derby, CT, 17 Dec. 1702, John Weed*.


BELL

Lawrence Bell, of Rillington, co. York, England, d. bef. 1 April 1612, m. Catherine _____, d. 1626.

Catherine Bell, m. (settlement, 19 January 1628[/9]), Peter Beverley*.


BEVERLEY (1)

Peter Beverley of Rillington, co. York, gent., d. 1596×1601, m. Wintringham, co. York, 3 Nov. 1576, Mary _____.

Arthur Beverley, of Rillington, gent., bur. Rillington, co. York, 11 April 1656.

Peter Beverley, of Rillington, bur. there 6 April 1667, m. (settlement, 19 January 1628[/9]), Catherine Bell*. [see also BEVERLEY (2)]

Arthur Beverley, of Bickley, co. York, bur. Ebberston, co. York, 26 Feb. 1681/2, m. (settlement, 10 Nov. 1660), Mary Trott*.

Isabella Beverley, bur. Ebberston, 20 Dec. 1715, m. Ebberston, 25 June 1695, Edward Consitt*.


BEVERLEY (2)

Peter Beverley, of Rillington, bur. there 6 April 1667, m. (settlement, 19 January 1628[/9]), Catherine Bell*. [see also BEVERLEY (1)]

Elizabeth Beverley, d. 1679, m. Thomas Consitt*.


BOND

Thomas Bond [1], of Wedicar, co. Lancaster, England, d. 16 Oct. 1683, rec. Lancaster MM, England, m. 22 May 1656, rec. Lancaster MM, Anne Parker*.

Jane Bond, b. 21 June 1664, rec. Lancaster MM, England, still alive 1707, PA, m. (1) 26 8mo. [Oct] 1687, rec. Lancaster MM, John Scott*, m. (2) John Whitaker.

[1] He may have been the son of the John Bond, of Chipping, co. Lancaster, England, whose will was dated 28 May 1662, but this remains unproven.


BOON(E)

John Boon, only his name known.

Elizabeth Boone, b. 23 March 1786, d. 24 Dec. 1853, bur. Sewickly graveyard, Westmoreland co., PA, m. (1) Robert Campbell, b. ca. 1770, d. Dayton, OH, 21 Jan. 1813, m. (2) John Marshall.


BOSTOCK (1)

Henry Bostock, of Bostock, co. Chester, England, d. 7 Sep. 1580, m. Margaret Bostock*.

Anne Bostock, bp. Davenham, co. Chester, England, 13 Oct. 1572, m. (1) Davenham, 18 June 1593, George Simcock*, m. (2) Witton, 8 Dec. 1624, John Blease.

[1] Henry Bostock does not appear in the visitations of Cheshire. Burke's Landed Gentry supplies an ancestry for him which, if correct, would probably provide a royal descent. However, there are reasons for being suspicious about this information which go above and beyond the usual reasons for mistrusting the notoriously unreliable Burke, and further evidence is needed for Henry's parentage.


BOSTOCK (2)

Robert Bostock [1], of Moulton, in the parish of Davenham, co. Chester, England, will dated 31 March 1537, m. Ann Salt or Salter

Ralph Bostock, of Moulton, bur. Davenham, 8 Feb. 1594/5, m. Emma Rode or Roode, bur. Davenham, 30 Aug. 1588.

Margaret Bostock, m. (1) Henry Bostock*, m. (2) Witton, 10 Jan. 1586/7, Robert Ryley of Leftwich.

[1] Much of this information comes from the 1580 and 1616 visitations of Cheshire, both of which add quite a few earlier generations, but with one major disagreement, the 1616 version giving one extra generation three generations prior to the above Robert. Back to Robert, the visitation gives good information on collaterals, and is probably reliable, as the probate record of Robert reveals that his wife's name was indeed Ann(e). Prior to that, none of the information of the visitation has been verified in contemporary records.


BOTTOM

John Bottom, b. ca. 1662, Henrico co., VA, d. 1710×1, m. Elizabeth _____.

Thomas Bottom, d. Amelia co., VA, 1765.

Mary(?) Bottom [1], m. George Stegall*.

[1] It is known from a deed that Thomas Bottom was the maternal grandfather of George Stegall's daughter Mary Magdalene (Stegall) Rives (see STEGALL), but there is no direct proof that Mary Magdalene (Stegall) Rives was the daughter of George Stegall's known wife Mary. The possibility remains that George Stegall was married twice, first to _____ Bottom (daughter of Thomas Bottom, and mother of Mary Magdalene Stegall) and then to Mary _____.


BOWATER [1]

John Boeter/Bowater, of the parish of Bromsgrove, co. Worcester, England, living 1640.

William Bowater, of Sidemore, in the parish of Bromsgrove, co. Worcester, England, Bromsgrove, bp. 10 June 1604, bur. Bromsgrove, 10 May 1647, m. (1) Bromsgrove, 30 Jan. 1627/8, Mary Byrt, m. (2) Dorothy _____. It is unknown which wife was the mother of his son John.

John Bowater, of the parish of Bromsgrove, co. Worcester, later of Westbury Street, Spitalfields, London, bp. Bromsgrove, 25 April 1630, d. London, 16 11mo. [Jan] 1704/5, m. (1) Ann _____, who d. 25 2mo. [Apr] 1679, m. (1) 12 9mo. [Nov] 1685, London and Middlesex MM, Mary Maunder.

Thomas Bowater, b. 10 Feb. 1654, Bromsgrove, co. Worcester, England, came to Pennsylvania in 1683 aboard the ship Bristol Comfort as an indentured servant, date of death unknown, m. (1) 1686, rec. Chester MM, PA, Sarah Edge*, m. (2) 1702, rec. Concord MM, PA, Mrs. Frances (Lambe) Barnett/Barnard, a widow (and an ancestor of President Abraham Lincoln by her first marriage).

Sarah Bowater, b. 17 6mo. [Aug] 1688, rec. Chester MM, PA, m. (1) 14 9mo. [Nov] 1711, rec. Chester MM, PA, John Beals*, m. (2) Fairfax MM, VA, 1748, Alexander Underwood.

[1] A detailed account of this family, with full documentation, appears in my article "John1 and Thomas1 Bowater and their sister Mary1 (Bowater) Wright", in The American Genealogist 75 (2000): 37-46, 117-123.


BRACE [1]

William Brace, probably lived in the mid-fifteenth century.

Robert Campbell, b. ca. 1770, died of wounds suffered in battle in the War of 1812, Dayton, OH, 21 Jan. 1813, m. Elizabeth Boone*, b. 23 March 1786, d. 24 Dec. 1853, bur. Sewickly graveyard, Westmoreland co., PA. She m. (2) John Marshall.

Jane Campbell, b. Westmoreland co., PA, 18 Aug. 1811, d. Elmira, IL, 21 March 1895, m. Westmoreland co., PA, 27 Dec. 1830, Nathaniel Cooper Weede*.

Jane Campbell, d. 7 July 1845, bur. Old Washington cem., Guernsey co., OH, m. Guernsey co., OH, 3 April 1821, James Baird*.


CARLILL

Richard Carlill, of Brompton in Pickering Lythe, co. York, England, will dated 9 Oct. 1583, proved 10 Dec. 1583, m. Catherine ______, will dated 16 Feb. 1584/5, proved 27 Sep. 1585.

Henry Carlill, of Brompton, m. Brompton, 14 Oct. 1585, Frances Casse* (see CASSE (1)).

William Carlill, of Sawdon, in the parish of Brompton, co. York, bp. Brompton, 24 Aug. 1588, bur. Brompton, 18 Oct. 1639, m. Brompton, 12 Nov. 1615, Mrs. Alice (Casse*) Norrison. (see CASSE (2))

Henry Cartwright, d. 6 Oct. 1887, bur. Scotch Ridge cem., Warren co., IA, m. Market Weighton, co. York, England, 2 Dec. 1827, Dorothy Ann Consitt*.

Elizabeth Cartwright, b. Canada, 3 March 1845, d. Des Moines, Polk co., IA, 22 May 1895, m. Des Moines, Polk co., IA, 21 Feb. 1867, Tarpley Taylor Jones*.

[1] The first generation is not certain.


CASSE (1)

Rowland Casse, of Sawdon, in the parish of Brompton, co. York, England, will dated 1 Aug. 1571, proved 2 Oct. 1572. [see also CASSE (2)]

John Casse, of Sawdon, will dated 13 March 1601, proved 8 May 1606.

Frances Casse, m. Brompton, 14 Oct. 1585, Henry Carlill*.


CASSE (2)

Rowland Casse, of Sawdon, in the parish of Brompton, co. York, England, will dated 1 Aug. 1571, proved 2 Oct. 1572. [see also CASSE (1)]

Robert Casse, bur. Brompton, 11(?) Feb. 1584[/5], m. Elizabeth _____, of Sawdon, co. York, England, will dated 25 July 1635, proved 8 May 1635.

Alice Casse, m. (1) Brompton, 19 Nov. 1598, William Norrison, m. (2) Brompton, 12 Nov. 1615, William Carlill*.


CLAYTON

William Clayton Jr. [1], of Chichester, co. Sussex, will dated 1 Feb. 1658/9, m. (1) Boxgrove, co. Sussex, 30 Oct. 1631, Joan Smith, who was bur. Boxgrove, 27 April 1644, m. (2) Boxgrove, 6 Jan. 1644/5, Elizabeth Simmons.

William Clayton, bp. Boxgrove, 9 Dec. 1632, came to PA in 1677, d. 1689, m. St. Pancras, co. Sussex, 7 Nov. 1653, Prudence Lanckford*.

Mary Clayton, b. Rumbolds Wake parish, co. Sussex 29 Aug. 1665, rec. Lewes and Chichester MM, m. Chester MM, PA, 1682, John Beals*.

[1] The name of William's father has been given as Thomas Clayton of Rudgwick, co. Sussex (see The Quaker Yeoman, vol. 11, no. 4, p. 1, Jan. 1995), but no proof has been given that Thomas's son William was the same person as this William Clayton. Although proof is lacking, a more likely candidate for the father of William Clayton would be the William Clayton Sr., who was buried 8 April 1644 at Boxgrove, co. Sussex. For a well documented account of the English ancestry of this family, see "The Parentage of William Clayton, Quaker immigrant to Pennsylvania: a correction", by Col. Charles Hansen, in The Genealogist [TG], 4 (1983), 169-173, and his later "William Clayton's parentage: an addition", in TG 9 (1988), 78-9.


COLLIER [1]

Robert Collier, d. bef. 1545.

Henry Collier, of the parish of Feckenham, co. Worcester, d. 11 April 1557, m. Sybil _____, bur. Feckenham, 2 June 1586.

Henry Collier, bp. Feckenham, 9 April 1562, bur. Hanbury, co. Worcester, 27 May 1648, m. Ombersley, co. Worcester, 26 Nov. 1589, Frances Jones*.

Alice Collier, bp. Ombersley, 13 March 1599/1600, d. 1664×6, m. Bradley, co. Worcester, 20 June 1622, George Maris*.

[1] Documentation for this family is given in my article "George1 Maris of Chester County, Pennsylvania", in The Genealogist 13 (1999), 216-51.


CONSITT

Thomas Consitt, of Bickley, co. York, England, d. ca. 1657, m. Hackness, co. York, 22 June 1613, Elizabeth Cockerill. [1]

Thomas Consitt, of Bickley, prob. bp. Hackness, 18 Nov. 1627, d. ca. 1677, md Elizabeth Beverley*.

Edward Consitt, of Bickley, d. 1741, m. Ebberston, co. York, 25 June 1695, Isabella Beverley*.

Thomas Consitt, of Bickley, co. York, bp. Ebberston, 23 Nov. 1708, bur. Ebberston, 27 July 1783, prob. m. (1) Mary Esthill, m. (2) Anne _____ [2].

William Consitt, of Broxa and Market Weighton, co. York, bp. Ebberston, 4 Oct. 1748, bur. Market Weighton, 28 May 1813, m. Harwood Dale, co. York, 12 April 1773, Mary Dickinson*.

Thomas Consitt, of Market Weighton, bp. Harwood Dale, co. York, 11 Feb. 1774, bur. Market Weighton, 17 Sep. 1838, m. Hackness, 9 Aug. 1803, Rebecca Rhodes [3], bp. Hackness, 16 April 1780, bur. Market Weighton, 17 Oct. 1845.

Dorothy Ann Consitt, d. 25 Feb. 1862, bur. Scotch Ridge cem., Warren co., IA, m. Market Weighton, co. York, England, 2 Dec. 1827, Henry Cartwright*.

[1] This generation is probable, but not certain.

[2] Because of the possibility of confusing two Thomas Consitts, the marriage(s) of Thomas Consitt have not been completely worked out. That Mary Esthill was one of his wives, and the mother of his children, seems to be the most likely possibility, but that is not certain.

[3] Due to the fact that the baptism of Dorothy Ann Consitt has not yet been found, it is still uncertain whether Dorothy was the daughter of Rebecca or of an unknown earlier wife of Thomas Consitt. If the ages of Dorothy (Consitt) Cartwright are correct as given on her gravestone and in two American censuses, then she was born ca. 1800×1, before the marriage of Thomas Consitt and Rebecca Rhodes. Some of the ancestors of Rebecca Rhodes are relatively easy to trace, but I have not included that data on this page, because of the uncertainties regarding the mother of Dorothy Ann Consitt.


COOK

Peter Cook, of Tarvin, co.Chester, England, d. 1713 at sea on the way to America, m. 7 12mo. [Feb] 1695/6, at Newton, co. Chester (recorded at Cheshire QM), Eleanor Norman*.

John Cook, b. Cheshire, England, 2 Sep. 1696, d. 15 March 1759, m. 10mo. [Dec] or 11mo. [Jan] 1718/9, rec. Kennett MM, PA, Eleanor Lansdale*.

Margaret Cook, b. 7 9mo. [Nov] 1721 [1], m. Chester co., PA, 20 2mo. [Apr] 1748, d. 1 3mo. [Mar] 1781, m. James Johnson*.

[1] This date is based on a list of John Cook's children in the Gilbert Cope collection, written in Cope's handwriting. I have been unable to find the original source.


CRAVEN

John Craven, of Troutsdale, co. York, b. ca. 1581, d. 29 Sep. 1661, bur. Hackness, co. York, m. 7 Dec. 1607, Elizabeth Langdale*.

William Craven, of Hilla Green, co. York, bp. Wykeham, co. York, 11 Dec. 1608, d. 1674, m. Brompton by Sawdon, co. York, 12 July 1636, Elizabeth Carlill*.

William Craven, of Hilla Green, co. York, bp. Hackness, 21 Nov. 1651, bur. Hackness, 29 Sep. 1723, m. Wykeham, 28 March 1680, Ann Stains*.

George Craven, bp. Wykeham, 22 Nov. 1685, m. Hutton Bushel, 16 Jan. 1712/3, Anne Audas*.

Elizabeth Craven, of Hilla Green, co. York, Hutton Bushel, bp. 9 Sep. 1720, bur. Hackness, 11 March 1788, m. Harwood Dale, co. York, 21 Oct. 1740, Henry Dickinson*.


CRAWFORD (1)

James Crawford [1], of Ballysavage, co. Antrim, Ireland, will dated 19 June 1736, m. Margaret Agnew*.

John Crawford, of Raloo, co. Antrim, Ireland, d. 1792, m. Larne, co. Antrim, Ireland, 21 Aug. 1746, Jane Lyle.

Matthew Crawford, of Raloo, co. Antrim, Ireland, b. ca. 1760, d. 24 May 1814, bur. Raloo Graveyard, m. Janet Crawford*.

John Crawford, b. Raloo, co. Antrim, Ireland, 5 Dec. 1791, to America in 1818, d. Van Buren co., IA, 11 Sep. 1860, bur. Winchester cem, m. (1) Ireland, _____ Robinson [2], d. ca. 1830, OH, m. (2) Rebecca Stull.

Nancy Crawford, b. OH, 28 June 1823, d. St. Charles, Madison co., OH, 7 Sep. 1882, m. Guernsey co., OH, 15 March 1849, John W. Baird*.

[1] The parentage of John Crawford given here is probably correct, but further documentation is desirable, in order to be sure that individuals of the same name are not being confused.

[2] Better documentation for this maiden name would be desirable, but it appears to be supported by the frequent use of "Robinson" as a middle or given name among descendants.


CRAWFORD (2)

Thomas Crawford [1], of Bogtown, in the Braid, co. Antrim, Ireland, m. Nancy Boyd.

Janet Crawford, b. ca. 1762, d. 9 Dec. 1845, bur. Raloo Graveyard, m. Matthew Crawford*.

[1] No contemporary documentation has been found for this generation. The information comes from an early twentieth century typescript copy of an earlier document of unknown date, which appears to have been written by someone who personally knew both Nancy Boyd and Jennet Crawford. The same source gives the names of the parents of Nancy Boyd as William Boyd and Isabella Strackan, with no further information.


DEANE

Lawrence Deane, of Shurlach, co. Chester.

Richard Deane.

Lawrence Deane.

Alice Deane [1], of Shipbrooke, co. Chester, d. 9 April 1588, bur. Davenham, co. Chester, 10 April 1588, m. Davenham, 20 June 1569, Arthur Simcock*.

[1] Alice (Deane) Simcock was the heiress of her granduncle John Deane (son of the elder Lawrence Deane), d. 13 Oct. 1563, rector of the parish of St. Bartholomew the Great, West Smithfield, London, and founder of the grammar school at Witton, in Cheshire. Since the major documentation for this line comes through Alice Deane's status as the heiress of John Deane, virtually nothing is known of Alice Deane's three direct ancestors beyond their names.]


DICKINSON (1)

Henry Dickinson, of Suffield and Hilla Green, co. York, England, bur. Hackness, co. York, 4 March 1737/8, m. Elizabeth (Wrenny?), who was bur. Hackness, 29 June 1750.

Henry Dickinson, of Hilla Green, bur. Hackness, 29 Jan. 1776, m. Harwood Dale, co. York, 21 Oct. 1740, Elizabeth Craven*.

Mary Dickinson, bp. Hackness, 31 Oct. 1746, bur. Market Weighton, co. York, 19 June 1831, m. Harwood Dale, 12 April 1773, William Consitt*.

Henry Dickinson, of Harwood Dale, co. York, England, bur. Hackness, 6 Aug. 1613, m. Helen _____, bur. Hackness, 12 Jan. 1612/3.

William Dickinson, of Langdon Bridge, co. York, bp. Hackness, 2 March 1585/6, d. 12 Jan. 1653/4, m. Hackness, 24 Nov. 1607, Emma Cowlson, bur. Hackness, 1651×2.

Henry Dickinson, of Langdon Bridge, bp. Hackness, 11 Sep. 1608, bur. Wykeham, co. York, 26 Feb. 1680/1, m. Fylingdales, co. York, 7 June 1636, Mary Flunders.

Elizabeth Dickinson, bp. Fylingdales, 1 Oct. 1638, m. Thornton Dale, co. York, 2 Dec. 1656, George Stains*.

[1] This generation is probable.


DICKINSON (3)

_____ Dickinson, d. bef. 20 Jan. 1583 (first name unknown), m. Margaret _____, of Suffield, co. York, bur. Hackness, 30 Jan. 1582/3.

Margaret Dickinson, m. Hackness, 19 Oct. 1578, George Langdale*.


DOGGETT (1)

Richard Doggett, of Groton, Suffolk, living 1526 [see also DOGGETT (2)].

John Doggett, of Bures St. Mary, Suffolk, d. 1565, m. (1) Martha Ashfield; m. (2) Margaret _____.

William Dogget, of Boxford, Suffolk, b. ca. 1557, d. 10 Oct. 1610, m. Boxford, co. Suffolk, 1 June 1591, Avice Lappage*.

William Doggett, of Ipswitch, co. Suffolk and Spittlefields, near London, bp. Boxford, 27 Feb. 1599, bur. Stepney, co. Middlesex, 16 Oct. 1675, m. Anne Langley*.

Rev. Benjamin Doggett, bp. St. Mary le Tower, Ipswich, 28 Oct. 1636, d. Lancaster co., VA, 1681, m. St. Mary le Tower, Ipswich, 21 Sep. 1664, Mrs. Jane Garrard, widow (maiden name unknown).

Benjamin Doggett, bp. Hadleigh, co. Suffolk, England, 9 June 1665, d. Lancaster co., VA, 1723×5.

Ann Doggett, m. before 1723, VA, George Reeves*.


DOGGETT (2)

Richard Doggett, of Groton, Suffolk, living 1526 [see Dogget (1)].

Alice Doggett, living 8 March 1566/7, m. (1) _____ Lappage* (first name unknown), m. (2) William More.


DORN (1)

John Dorn, b. Oberzell, Hessen-Kassel, Germany, 12 Aug. 1851, d. Mt. Victory, Hardin co., OH, 6 March 1902, m. Hardin co., OH, 18 Nov. 1880, Catherine Dorn*.

Florence Elizabeth Dorn, b. Mt. Victory, Hardin co., OH, 1 Oct. 1891, d. Youngstown, Mahoning co., OH, 29 May 1960, m. Toledo, Lucas co., OH, 29 Dec. 1912, Ralph Leslie Baldwin*.


DORN (2)

Conrad Dorn, b. Hessen-Kassel, Germany, 3 Jan. 1829, d. Hardin co., OH, 5 Nov. 1880, m. Hardin co., OH, 29 Oct. 1851, Katherina Alt, b. Oberzell, Hessen-Kassel, Germany, 12 Dec. 1829, d. Hardin co., OH, 3 Feb. 1892.

Catherine Dorn, b. Kenton, Hardin co., OH, 16 Jan. 1861, d. Youngstown, Mahoning co., OH, 4 Jan. 1936, m. Hardin co., OH, 18 Nov. 1880, John Dorn*.


EDGE

George Edge [1], of Barrow, co. Chester, England, bur. Whitley, co. Chester, 22 3mo. [May] 1676, m. Joan _____.

Sarah Edge [2], b. 7mo. [Sep] 1657, d. 26 2mo. [Apr] 1692, rec. Chester MM, PA, m. 1686, rec. Chester MM, PA, Thomas Bowater*.

[1] Some have given two additional generations, based primarily on the baptism of a certain George Edge, son of Richard Edge, at Frodsham. However, although it is possible that this baptism was the same George Edge, I have never seen any convincing proof that this was the case.

[2] The frequently repeated claim that she was a daughter of the early Quaker immigrant John Edge is incorrect, and she was in fact John's sister. The above relationship is documented by the records of the Cheshire Quarterly Meeting. This Edge family apparently had no connection to the Edge family of Middlesex (also Quakers), with whom they have sometimes been confused.


FOSTER (uncertain [1])

Stephen Foster, of Skipsea, co. York, bur. Skipsea, 13 March 1722/3, m. Skipsea, 10 Feb. 1714/5, Ellis Pilkington.

Jane Foster, bp. Skipsea, 22 Nov. 1715, bur. Skipsea, 5 May 1752, m. Skipsea, 1741, John Warcup*.

[1] The information given here is all well documented. The connection is listed here as a "uncertain" connection because of a later weak link.


FRAME

James Frame, d. Fayette co., PA, 22 May 1794, m. Susannah Downard.

Susannah Frame, b. PA, 12 Aug. 1865, d. OH, 20 Dec. 1841, m. John Baird*.


GALE

Thomas Gale, of Edwardstone, Suffolk, d. ca. 1588, m. Mawde _____, living 1588.

Agnes Gale, m. Edwardstone, Suffolk, England, 7 June 1567, Thomas Lappage*.


GRIMES

Benjamin Grimes, of Maryland and Fayette co., PA, b. bef. 1775, still alive 1830, Fayette co., PA.

James Grimes, b. MD, 9 Oct. 1799, d. Logan co., OH, 12 Oct. 1856, m. Elizabeth Yeagley*.

Sarah Grimes, b. PA, 11 June 1825, d. 1909, bur. Hale cem., Hardin co., OH, m. Logan co., OH, 18 March 1847, Lemuel Williams*.


HAIRST/HAYHURST (1)

Cuthbert Hairst or Hayhurst [1], of Easington, co. York, d. 19 1mo. [Mar] 1676/7, m. bef. 1617, Alice Hairst* or Hayhurst, d. 17 Jan. 1667/8.

Isabell Hairst or Hayhurst, bur. Twisden, co. Lancaster, England, 17 Nov. 1685, m. John Scott*. [2]

[1] Most published accounts of the Hayhurst family appear to based on the innacurate account in the Alfred R. Justice collection, which makes the unlikely claim that Cuthbert Hairst of Essington was the same person as the Cuthbert, son of William Hairst of Slaidburn, whose will was dated 30 July 1647. Since William Hairst of Slaidburn had a minor child in 1647, and Cuthbert Hairst was already married by 1617, it is very unlikely that William was Cuthbert's father. Cuthbert and Alice Hayhurst were also parents of Cuthbert Hayhurst, an immigrant to Pennsylvania. The details have been recently published in my article "Cuthbert1 Hayhurst: Qukaer Immigrant to Pennsylvania", The American Genealogist 84 (2010): 161-175.

[2] While the evidence for this relationship is good (see my Hayhurst article cited above), more direct proof would be desirable.


HAIRST/HAYHURST (2)

William Hairst [1], of Newton in Bolland, d. 1617×8, m. Margery _____, d. 1646×7.

Alice Hairst or Hayhurst, d. 17 11mo. [Jan] 1667/8, Settle MM, co. York, m. bef. 1617 Cuthbert Hairst* or Hayhurst. [2]

[1] A William Hairste of Newton in Bolland left a will dated 1 January 1583[/4] and proved 13 May 1586, in which he named a son Cuthbert and Cuthbert's son William. This younger William could be the William who died in 1617 or 1618, and an earlier version of this page listed that as a probable connection. Having researched the problem more carefully, I now prefer to be more cautious about identifying the two Williams, but the connection is still possible.

[2] The maiden name and parentage of Alice appears to have been overlooked by previous researchers.


HUETT/HEWITT

Richard Huett/Hewitt, of Witton, co. Chester, England, bur. Witton, 3 Sep. 1600, m. Witton, 11 July 1585, Anne Sudlowe, who m. (2) William Burgess.

Elizabeth Huett, bp. Witton, 18 April 1595, bur. Witton, 7 Nov. 1663, m. Weaverham, co. Chester, 11 Aug. 1617, George Pownall*.


HULL

Richard Hull, d. New Haven, CT, 21 Aug. 1662.

Mary Hull, d. 26 Feb. 1664, m. New Haven, CT, 1 March 1653/4, John Jackson*.


JACKSON

John Jackson, b. ca. 1623, d. Derby, New Haven co., CT, 1 Oct. 1683, m. New Haven, CT, 1 March 1653/4, Mary Hull*.

Mary Jackson, b. New Haven, CT, 15 Oct. 1657, d. Derby, CT, 15 June 1724, m. Derby, New Haven co., CT, Aug. 1679, George Beaman*.


JARMAN

John Jarman, m. Margaret _____.

Elizabeth Jarman [1], probably m. Edward Morgan*.

[1] Although Edward Morgan's wife Elizabeth was probably the daughter of John Jarman, this has not been solidly documented. The principal evidence comes from an account given by an aged great-granddaughter of Edward Morgan to a younger relative, which was then reported soon afterward by the latter in a letter. There are also several pieces of primary evidence which lend support to, but do not confirm, the relationship.


JOHNSON

Robert Johnson, of Coleboy, co. Wicklow, Ireland to PA in 1714, received at Kennett MM, PA from Carlow Meeting in Ireland, 12 5mo. [July] 1714, d. Chester co., PA, 1732, m. co. Wicklow, Ireland, 19 6mo. [Aug] 1693, Margaret Braithwaite, of Ballynacurrig, Ireland.

Joshua Johnson, b. co. Wicklow, Ireland, 29 7mo. [Sep] 1696, m. (1) 23 2mo. [Apr] 1724, rec. Newark MM, PA, Sarah Miller*, m. (2) 10 2mo. 1751, rec. Newark MM, PA, Mrs. Elizabeth England, a widow.

James Johnson, b. 17 3mo. [May] 1725, rec. Newark MM, PA, d. Guilford co., NC, 15 4mo. [April ] 1809, m. 20 2mo. [Apr] 1748, rec. Newark MM, PA, Margaret Cook*.

JONES (1)

Samuel Jones, of VA, Fleming co., KY, and Brown co., OH, b. ca. 1762, living 7 June 1831, m. Mason co., KY, bond 3 Nov. 1790, Elizabeth Reeves*.

Lewis Jones, b. Fleming co., KY, 15 Jan. 1806, d. Des Moines, IA, 15 April 1875, bur. Woodland cem., m. (1) Scott co., IN, 29 March 1830, Sally Smith, m. (2) Scott co., IN, 14 Dec. 1834, Martha Still*.

Tarpley Taylor Jones, b. IN, 3 Oct. 1839, d. Clarinda, Page co., IA, 24 Feb. 1891, m. Des Moines, Polk co., IA, 21 Feb. 1867, Elizabeth Cartwright*.

Edna May Jones, b. Des Moines, Polk co., IA, 5 Nov. 1883, d. Des Moines, 18 Feb. 1972, m. Des Moines, 30 Dec. 1908, John Stewart Baird*.


JONES (2)

Robert Jones, of Ombersley, co. Worcester. bur. Ombersley, 21 Dec. 1616, m. Alice _____, bur. Ombersley, 1 June 1622.

Frances Jones, bur. Hanbury, co. Worcester, 10 May 1636, m. Ombersley, 27 Nov. 1589, Henry Collier*.


KAY

Ralph Kay, of Allerston, co. York, England, d. 1686, m. Thornton Dale, co. York, 5 Feb. 1655/6, Anne Skelton*.

Catherine Kay, b. ca. 1664, bur. Hutton Bushel, co. York, 3 May 1743, m. Allerston, 3 Feb. 1686, Matthew Audas*.


LANCKFORD

William Lanckford, of Broughton parish, co. Hants, England, possibly the same as William Lankford of Rumboldswick, co. Sussex, who d. 1 11mo. [Jan] 1665/6, rec. Lewes and Chichester MM, England.

Prudence Lanckford, m. St. Pancras, Sussex, England, 7 Nov. 1653, William Clayton*.


LANGDALE

George Langdale, of Hackness, co. York, England, d. ca. 1550, m. Joan _____. [1]

William Langdale, of Hackness, bur. 8 Dec. 1577, Hackness.

George Langdale, of Hackness, bur. 20 Dec. 1606, Hackness, m.19 Oct. 1578, Hackness, Margaret Dickinson*.

Elizabeth Langdale, bp. 7 May 1585, Hackness, bur. 22 Nov. 1652, Hackness, m. 7 Dec. 1607, Hackness, John Craven*.

[1] This generation could use better proof.


LANGLEY

Geoffrey Langley, of Colchester, co. Essex, England, d. Nov×Dec. 1624, m. Anne Carter, of Walton-on-the-Naze, co. Essex.

Anne Langley, bp. St. Nicholas, Colchester, co. Essex, 2 March 1604, m. William Doggett*.


LANSDALE

Thomas Lansdale, of Yealand Conyers, co. Lancaster, England, d. 1699, either during passage on the ship Britannia or shortly after arriving in America, m. Yealand Conyers (rec. Lancaster MM), 8 3mo. [May] 1695, Margaret Robinson, of Yealand Conyers, Lancashire, England, d. 1699.

Eleanor Lansdale, b. 1696, rec. Lancaster MM, England, m. 10mo. [Dec] or 11mo. [Jan] 1718/9, rec. Kennett MM, PA, John Cook*.


LAPPAGE

_____ Lappage (first name unknown), m. Alice Doggett*.

Thomas Lappage, of Boxford, Suffolk, b. ca. 1532, d. 1611×4, m. Edwardstone, Suffolk, England, 7 June 1567, Agnes Gale*.

Avice Lappage, bp. 1 Aug. 1568, d. after 1650, m. Boxford, Suffolk, 1 June 1591, William Doggett*.


LLOYD (probable connection [1])

Thomas Lloyd [2], d. 1748, Philadelphia co., PA, m. bef. 10 6mo. [Aug] 1699, PA, Elizabeth Williams*.

Sarah Lloyd, b. 14 7mo. 1701, rec. Haverford MM, PA, d. Frederick co., VA, bef. 6 Aug. 1747, m. 8 Nov. 1721, rec. Haverford MM, PA, John Morgan*.

[1] The information given here is all well documented. The connection is listed here as a "probable" connection because of a later weak link.

[2] The claimed royal ancestry of Thomas Lloyd has been disproven. See my article "The supposed royal ancestry of the Lloyd siblings of Pennsylvania", in The American Genealogist 71 (1996): 77-84, where I showed that the previously claimed parentage of Thomas Lloyd was incorrect. The parentage, and place of origin overseas, of Thomas Lloyd remains unproven, although it is very likely that he came from Wales.


MARIS

George Maris [1], of Grafton Flyford, co. Worcester, England, d. 1656×9, m. Bradley, co. Worcester, 20 June 1622, Alice Collier*.

George Maris, b. ca. 1631×2, co. Worcester, d. 15 11mo. [Jan] 1703/4, rec. Chester MM, PA, m. Alice _____ [2], who d. 11 1mo. [Mar] 1699/1700, rec. Chester MM, PA.

Alice Maris, b. 17 8mo. [Oct] 1660, d. 10 10mo. [Dec] 1726, rec. Chester MM, PA, m. 15 11mo. [Jan] 1684/5, rec. Chester MM, PA, Jacob Simcock*.

Notes: [1] His father is sometimes given as Richard Maris, but there are problems with the documentation (because of possible confusion with another George Maris), and the parentage of this George Maris still requires proof. The documentation for the English ancestry of this family is discussed in detail in my article "George1 Maris of Chester County, Pennsylvania", in The Genealogist 13 (1999): 216-51. [2] To my knowledge, no good evidence has ever been put forward to support the claimed maiden name of "Willsmith" (or variants) for Alice.


MILLER (1)

Gayen Miller, d. Chester co., PA, 1742, m. Margaret _____. [1]

Sarah Miller, b. 1 9mo. [Nov] 1704, rec. Newark (Kennett) MM, PA, d. 6mo. [Aug] 1749, bur. London Grove, Chester co., PA, m. 23 April 1724, rec. Newark (Kennett) MM, PA, Joshua Johnson*.

[1] The maiden name of Margaret is given as "Henderson" in some sources, but I have never seen any proof of this.


MILLER (2)

_____ Miller, m. Agnes _____, d. Hunterdon co., NJ, bef. 4 March 1822.

Sarah Miller, living 9 January 1832, m. (1) _____ Davis, m. (2) Andrew Yeagley*.


MOON

James Moon, d. ca. 7mo. [Sep] 1713, rec. Falls MM, PA, m. Joan _____, who was b. ca. 1649, d. 10mo. [Dec] 1739, rec. Falls MM, PA [1].

James Moon, b. ca. 1669, m. (1) 2mo. [Apr] or 3mo. [May] 1697, rec. Chesterfield MM, NJ, Mary Wilsford*, m. (2) 1714, Agnes Priestly.

Simon Moon, b. 11 4mo. [June] 1700, rec. Middletown MM, PA, will dated 11 Nov. 1748, proved 7 Feb. 1748/9, Frederick co., VA, m. Christ Church, Philadelphia, PA, 27 Sep. 1721, Lowry Humphrey.

Rachel Moon, m. 12 7mo. [July] 1758, rec. New Garden MM, NC, Henry Thornburgh*.

[1] I have been unable to find any good evidence that Joan's maiden name was Burges(s), as has been frequently claimed, nor have I found any proof that James Moon was the brother of John Moon, another early Quaker immigrant from Bristol to PA. The supposed Bristol origin of James is also, to my knowledge, unproven.


MORE [1]

John More, m. Rose Brace*.

John More, m. Joan Gardner.

Isabell More, bur. St. Peter de Witton, Droitwich, co. Worcester, 30 March 1545, m. John Wythe*.

[1] See my article "George1 Maris of Chester County, Pennsylvania", in The Genealogist 13 (1999), 216-51.


MORGAN (probable connection)

Edward Morgan [1], of Gwynedd, PA, maternal grandfather of the famous Daniel Boone, m. Elizabeth (probably Jarman*).

John Morgan, d. Frederick co., VA, ca. 1747, m. 8 Nov. 1721, rec. Haverford MM, PA, Sarah Lloyd*.

Elizabeth Morgan, probably the same person as: Elizabeth, d. 19 9mo. [Sep] 1773, rec. New Garden MM, NC, m. ca. 1745, probably in VA, William Baldwin*.

[1] Edward Morgan's origin is unknown. He was certainly not the son of Sir James Morgan (of the Morgans of Llantarnum), as has been frequently claimed.

[2] The suggested identity of Elizabeth, daughter of John Morgan, with Elizabeth, wife of William Baldwin, is based on a number of independent pieces of evidence, which form a strong case, but fall short of clear proof.


NORMAN

John Norman, of Crowton, Cheshire, England, d. ca. 1680, m. Frodsham, co. Chester, 6 Sep. 1654, Margaret Rutter. [1]

Eleanor Norman, of Kingsley, perhaps bp. 21 Sep. 1665, Frodsham, m. (1) England, 7 12mo. [Feb.] 1695/6, Peter Cook*, m. (2) 1714, Chester MM, PA, John Fincher.

[1] This seems to be the most likely possibility for the parentage of Eleanor Norman, but further proof is needed.


PARKER

Alexander Parker, of Lees in Bolland Forest, fl. 1596-1621.

Robert Parker, of Lees in Bolland Forest, will dated 8 Jan. 1661, m. Jane _____.

Anne Parker, d. 19 11mo. [Jan] 1668/9, rec. Lancaster MM, England, m. 22 May 1656, rec. Lancaster MM, Thomas Bond*.


PAXSON

James Paxson [1], m. Marsh Gibbon, co. Buckingham, England, 16 Aug. 1640, Jane Clerk, bur. Marsh Gibbon, 15 Aug. 1670.

James Paxson, came to America in 1682 or 1683, d. Bucks co., PA, 1722, m. (1) _____, m. (2) Marsh Gibbon, 6 Oct. 1670, Jane Gurden.

William Paxson, b. 25 Dec. 1675, bp. Marsh Gibbon, 22 Jan. 1675/6, m. 20 12mo. [Feb] 1695/6, rec. Middletwon MM, PA, Abigail Pownall*.

Reuben Paxson [2], m. 1730, rec. Abington MM, PA, Alice Simcock*.

John Paxson, b. Kingwood, Hunterdon co., NJ, 13 7mo. [Sep] 1744, d. Logan co., OH, 1820, m. Mary _____ [3].

Nancy Paxson, d. 1838, m. Champaign co., OH, 8 Sep. 1812, Henry Williams*.

[1] Martha Jonet Paxson Grundy, "The Paxson Brothers of Colonial Pennsylvania: The First Three Generations", in National Genealogical Society Quarterly [NGSQ] 71 (1983), 193-216, based primarily on Arthur Edwin Bye, History of the Bye Family and Some Allied Families (Easton, PA, 1956), claimed to give four additional generations of ancestry for this Paxson family. However, see my article "The Paxson Brothers of Pennsylvania: A Reassessment of the Evidence", in NGSQ 83 (1995), 39-43, where I showed that these generations could not be accepted without further proof.

[2] Although his genealogical connections are well documented, the birth and death dates of Reuben Paxson are unknown. I have been unable to verify reports that he married again and moved to South Carolina.

[3] An undocumented maiden name of "Simcock" for her started appearing on the internet in 1998. Unless supporting evidence for this surfaces, it seems best to regard this as a probable error resulting from confusion with John Paxson's mother, who certainly was a Simcock. I have also seen Mary's maiden name given as "Cheshire", but without any evidence.


POWNALL

Ralph Pownall, of Witton, Cheshire, d. between 1604 and 1607, m. (1) Margaret _____, who was bur. Witton, 15 Jan. 1587/8, m. (2) Anne _____.

Humphrey Pownall, of Witton, Cheshire, bur. Witton, 18 Dec. 1614, m. Witton, 15 May 1586, Jane Tew*.

George Pownall, of Witton and Lostock Gralam, Cheshire, bp. Witton, 24 April 1597, bur. Witton, 6 Jan. 1679/80, m. Weaverham, co. Chester, 11 Aug. 1617, Elizabeth Huett*.

George Pownall, of Lostock Gralam, later of Bucks co., PA, bp. Witton, 26 Feb. 1633/4, d. Bucks co., PA, 30 Oct. 1682, m. Eleanor (probably Worrall or Gardner [1]).

Abigail Pownall, b. England, 4 12mo. [Feb] 1677/8, d. Bucks co., PA, 1749, m. William Paxson*.

[1] The reasons for regarding Eleanor's maiden name to be probably Worrall or Gardner were discussed in my article Quaker Marriage Certificates: Using Witness Lists in Genealogical Research, The American Genealogist 72 (1997), 225-243, especially 237-242.


REEVES

George Reeves, of Prince William co., VA, m. before 1723, VA, Ann Doggett*.

Asa Reeves, d. Fleming co., KY, 1822, m. Sarah _____ [1].

Elizabeth Reeves, b. ca. 1776?, m. Mason co., KY, 3 Nov. 1790, Samuel Jones*.

[1] I have seen a couple of maiden names offered for her, neither accompanied by any evidence.


RICHARDS

Thomas Richards, of Hartford, CT, d. ca. 1639, m. Ribbesford, co. Worc., England, 19 January 1629[/30], Priscilla Wakeman*..

Obadiah Richards, of Farmington, CT, d. 11 Nov. 1702, m. Hannah Andrews*.

Elizabeth Richards, b. July 1675, m. John Richardson*.


RICHARDSON

Thomas Richardson, of Farmington and Waterbury, CT, d. 14 Nov. 1712, m. Mary _____ [1], who d. 21 Nov. 1712.

John Richardson, of Waterbury, CT, b. 15 April 1672, d. 17 Oct. 1712, m. (1) Ruth Wheeler, m. (2) Elizabeth Richards*.

Sarah Richardson, b. Waterbury, CT, 28 April 1710, d. Waterbury, CT, 15 Feb. 1747/8, m. Samuel Weed*.

[1] I have been unable to verify the statement in Torrey's marriages that her maiden name was Senior.


RIVES

Capt. Frederick Rives [1], d. Franklin co., VA, bef. 19 Jan. 1815, m. Amelia co., VA 1761, Mary Magdalene Stegall*.

Phoebe S. Rives, b. 3 Sep. 1769, d. Washington co., IN, 30 Jan. 1854, m. Franklin co., VA, 23 July 1796, Murphy D. Still*.

[1] The supposed ancestors of Captain Frederick Rives which are given in Reliques of the Rives, by James Rives Childs, are supplied without any reasonable proof, and cannot be accepted without further evidence.

[2] The maiden name of "Budd", which has sometimes been given for her, is very doubtful.


SKELTON

Robert Skelton [1], of Wilton, co. York, England, d. 1668×72, m. Frances _____.

Anne Skelton, bur. Allerston, co. York, 1 Aug. 1670, m. Thornton Dale, co. York, 5 Feb. 1655/6, Ralph Kay*.

[1] Although the parentage of Anne Skelton given here appears to be correct, more solid proof of her father's identity would be desirable. That Anne's mother was named Frances is proven by the will of Ralph Kay, which named his mother-in-law Frances Skelton.

John Smith, of Bath co., VA and Logan co., OH, b. ca. 1770×5, d. Logan co., OH, 1840×1, m. (2) Bath co., VA, 1799 (marriage bond 15 Oct. 1799), Rebeckah Carrick, m. (2) bef. 1828, Sarah _____, m. (3) Logan co., OH, 19 Oct. 1838, Harriet Camper.

STEGALL

George Stegall, of Amelia, Brunswick, and Lunenburg counties, VA, d. after 1774, m. Mary Bottom*.

Mary Magdalene Stegall, m. Amelia co., VA, 1761, Frederick Rives*.


STEPHENSON (uncertain [1])

[1] The information given here is all well documented. The connection is listed here as a "uncertain" connection because of a later weak link.

Walter Thornburgh, of Guilford co., NC, m. Margaret _____.

Henry Thornburgh, d. 24 4mo. [Apr] 1804, rec. Lost Creek MM, TN, m. 12 7mo. [July] 1758, rec. New Garden MM, NC, Rachel Moon*.

[1] The alleged royal descent for him which appears in some Thornburgh genealogies is not to be taken seriously.


TROTT

Robert Trott, of Bickley, co. York.

Mary Trott, m. (settlement, 10 Nov. 1660), Arthur Beverley*.


TURNER

_____ Turner, of Windyeates (first name unknown), m. Elizabeth _____, of Windyeates, d. 1642×6.

WEED(E)

Jonas Weed [1], b. England, to America in 1630, d. Stamford, CT, ca. 1676, m. Mary _____, who d. bef. 10 March 1689/90.

John Weed, d. Stamford, CT, 1689×90, m. Joanna Wescott*.

John Weed, d. Derby, New Haven co., CT, ca. 1739, m. Derby, CT, 17 Dec. 1702, Mary Beaman*.

Samuel Weed, b. Derby, New Haven co., CT, 18 July 1704, m. Sarah Richardson*.

Reuben Weed, b. Derby, New Haven co., CT, 16 Oct. 1740, d. Abbeville co., SC, 1791×2, m. Martha _____ [2], who d. Abbeville co., SC, Sep×Oct. 1809.

[1] His place of origin in England is unknown. Claims that he was born in Northamtonshire or Yorkshire have not been backed up by good evidence.

[2] Maiden names of Messor, Meeker, and variants have been assigned to her, but with no known good evidence.

[3] The claim that her maiden name was Wiseman is probably a mistake based on the confusion of two Nathaniel Weeds, as her son Nathaniel Jr. was married to a Wiseman. The fact that two of her sons had "Cooper" as a middle name (a feature which does not appear in earlier generations) suggests the possibility that her maiden name may have been Cooper.

[4] The "e" appears to have been added to the name at about this generation.


WESCOTT

Richard Wescott, d. Fairfield, CT, bef. 11 March 1649/50, m. Joanna _____, b. ca. 1612, d. ca. 1667.

WILLIAMS (2)

George Williams, of Monocacy, Prince Georges co., m.

Richard Williams, b. 1726, d. 6 5mo. [May] 1781, rec. New Garden MM, NC, m. 11 10mo. [Dec] 1746, rec. Fairfax MM, VA, Prudence Beals*.

"WILLIAMS" (3) (probable connection [1])

John [2]

Edward ap John, of Cynlas, in the parish of Llanderfel, co. Merioneth, Wales.

William ap Edward, of Merion, PA, will dated 29 Dec. 1714, m. Wales, ca. 1671, Katherine Roberts [3].

Elizabeth Williams, b. Wales, 14 May 1672, d. Philadelphia, PA, 1748×9, m. PA, bef. 10 6mo. [Aug] 1699, Thomas Lloyd*.

[1] The information given here is all well documented. The family is listed here as "probable" because of a weak link (two generations later) between these individuals and myself. The surname "Williams" is valid here only for the last generation.

[2] His first name can be deduced from his father's patronymic, but nothing else about him is certain. There is no proof that his full name was John ap Edward, as claimed by Glenn in Welsh Founders of Pennsylvania. Of course, that also means that Glenn's claimed royal descent which goes along with that claim also fails. This family is discussed in my article "On the Supposed Royal Ancestry of John1 ap Edward, Evan1 ap Edward, and William1 ap Edward of Pennsylvania", The American Genealogist 82 (2007): 17-31.

[3] I have found no good reason to believe that she was the sister of the immigrant Hugh Roberts, as Glenn claims in Welsh Founders of Pennsylvania.

Eleanor Wythe, bur Feckenham, co. Worcester, 21 Sep. 1571, m. ca. 1560, Robert Collier*.

[1] Documentation for this family is given in my article "George1 Maris of Chester County, Pennsylvania", in The Genealogist 13 (1999), 216-51.
