A collection of historical and genalogical records


Thomas Hunt III was the son of Captain Thomas Hunt, Jr. and Ann Wilkins. (I have imposed the Roman numeral III after the name in order to clearly distinguish him from other Hunts bearing the same given name). Thomas Hunt III married Smart Tankred, born 1689, sister of Mary Tankred, who married John Hunt, brother of Thomas Hunt III. Most authorities do not accept this determination that Smart Tankred was the wife of Thomas Hunt III. Authorities agree that Smart Tankred's name is correct. See will of Sarah Tankred, written 17 Jan 1718/9 and proved 17 Feb 1718/9, Deeds, Wills, Etc., XXIII-R, 1718-1725, page 216. Calls herself widow, in her will-"To my son, John Tankred, to my daughter, Mary Hunt, to my daughter, Sarah Joyns, to my daughter, Smart Hunt. The problem arises when we observe the will of her husband, John Tankred. I shall address this issue when I provide details on Thomas Hunt Generation III.

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?
