Lt Thomas Hunt, Sr.

Generation 1Thomas Hunt was born about 1593 in Shrewsbury, Salop, Shropshire, of an old and distinguished family. A sister, Ann Harris, was living in Shrewsbury in 1655. Thomas received his first patent in 1636, a personal adventure patent of 50 acres for his own adventure. This patent was within walking distance of Fishing Poynt, a landing place for schooners on Plantation Creek. Thomas Hunt actually arrived here in 1630 or 1631. Patents took five years to be acquired if they were within the…See More

Introduction-Hunt family

If I were to continue with the approach I have been using the several thousand descendants of Col Douglas would be lost in the crowd. This approach worked fine in using Captain William Willett as a baseline. If I use my great-grandfather, as a baseline and limit my disclosure of descendants of Col Douglas that only descend from the Hunt family and limit that to just my direct ancestors we will only have several hundred to contend with. For better than 250 years the Hunt family has intermarried…See More

28 July 1680 Administrator Elizabeth Willett, widow of the deceased Apprs. Thomas Hunt, Provost Nelson, William Gelding,Sr., Samuel Bennett, Secs. Hancock Lee, Daniel Neech/ I have already mentioned the inventory sale. Mary Willett relinquished administration of the estate and fled the 184. Principal creditor Captain Nathaniel Walker. I presume that Edward Douglas, Jr. joined her in the escape. It is remarkable that the two children, William and Martha Willett were left behind…

I shall continue with the children of Lt Edward Douglas and Isabell Gaynor.

Sarah Douglas was born in 1646 and married Edward Littleton at the age of twelve in the year 1658 in Northampton County. This date is provided by the 'famous brief' of Colonel Edmund Scarburgh in the Gething case.28 Jan 1662. Scarburgh states " Consider what I have said and take the consequences with you, and wherein I appeal to physicians, knowing men and motherly women whether this early match with a child…


Edward Douglas, Jr.

Posted on February 12, 2017 at 0:01 0 Comments

Edward Douglas, Jr. was born about 1643, When he was eighteen he received a patent for the full 3700 acres that had been granted to his father. This was in the year1661.This tells me that if Edward Douglas, Jr., were to die he would leave either a will or there would be an administration of his estate. It is evident that Edward remained with his sisters as well as his father-in-law until 1680 when we have evidence that Elizabeth widow of John Willett, left Northampton Co and took a ship back…

I am following your post with great interest. There are early researchers of my line that have tried to connect Col Edward Douglas 1713-1795 to Lt Col Douglas line through his son Edward. I had thought this impossible because I thought Edward Jr had dird without issue. Your recent blog comments seem to suggest otherwise. I had changed my focus from Lt Col Douglas to a James Douglas, of Kincardineshire as a possible father candidate for Col Edward Douglas. Perhaps there is something to the idea that he wss descended from Lt Col Douglas. You have renewed my interest. Thank you. My email address is I will continue to follow your blog with great interest.
