A collection of historical and genalogical records
I shall outline what I hope to accomplish over the next couple of weeks. I have the feeling that Lt. Colonel Edward Douglas' father was James Douglas. Thomas Goffigon, who married Leah Willett, named a son, James Goffigon. Also, I am able to prove that Edward Goffigon, Jr., survived and probably moved to Northumberland Co., Virginia, with Captain Hancocke Lee, when he returned to Northumberland Co. in 1584. I, then, found an Edward Goffigon in Tennessee, who named a son, James. This suggests that Edward was a son of Edward Douglas, Jr of Nortumberland. The given name 'Edward. is rare among the Scots. I can prove that John Willett and Elizabeth Willett had two children-William and Martha,. Martha Married John Senior and had children. Also, When John Willett died, his widow married again and had more children. I shall add that Captain Hancocke Lee, son of Richard Lee of Ditchley, was very inv olved in helping the family.
I am puzzled why no one has looked at the public records, church records, the Visitations, in Norfolk England, If Edward was there he was certainly a prominent figure and one would think he would be in the recordsOver the next several weeks I shall provide my proofs and conjectures. I am counting on help from fellow can members.
