Generation 2

Captain Thomas Hunt, son of Lt Thomas Hunt

Capt Hunt mar Ann Wilkins in 1666, dau of John Wilkins and his second wife, Ann--,See Deeds, Wills, etc.,Vii #8, 1666-1668, page 4. "Ann Wilkins, dau of John Wilkins, dec'd. entered into a premarital agreement with Thomas Hunt." I shall record, at length, about John Wilkins, father of Ann. The information I present comes from Adventures of Purse and Person, published 1987, pages 676-688. John Wilkins arrived in Virginia in the MARIGOLD, in May 1618.The first record of John Wilkins is the report of his death at Mr. Edward Bennett's plantation, one of 52 massacred there by the Indians on Good Friday, 22 March 1621/22. The report turned out to be erroneous. In the muster of 1623/4 John Wilkins and his first wife, Bridget Craft, were living on the Eastern Shore, near the Secretary's land. There was a second muster 1624/5, John was aged 26 and Bridget, aged 20.

Making conections

The more information you can give about the people you mention, the more chance there is of someone else connecting with your family.

Dates and places of births, deaths and marriages all help to place families.

Professions also help.

'My great-grandmother mother was a Douglas from Montrose' does not give many clues to follow up! But a bit of flesh on the bones makes further research possible. But if we are told who she married, what his profession was and where the children were baptised, then we can get to work.

Maybe it is time to update the information in your profile?
