Who are the parents of John Heard? [closed]

+5 votes




" HFAm #6, Elizabeth Hull, who married John Heard, has some erroneous information on Elizabeth’s husband. There were two John Heards and Elizabeth did not marry the one designated as Captain John Heard, of Kittery, York County, Maine, who was a sea captain, and married Isabel [_?_]. Elizabeth married the John Heard who was a carpenter of Dover, Strafford County, New Hampshire. Also the parents of Elizabeth’s husband, John, were not Luke and Sarah (Wyatt) Heard. Elizabeth Hull Heard’s husband’s parents are unknown.

So, there we have it, straight from the Hull's mouth.  John Heard's ancestry is unknown.  "

this G2G from 2012 was never answered. The quoted website is my own. It is an article about John Heard. There are no sources that would indicate who his parents are and where he was born. There was a John Hurd born in Batcombe, but not on that date, he was born in 1608 and his father was James Hurd. The information on the parents attached to him are unsourced and some of it is clearly wrong; mother died in New Hampshire in 1625.

I think we should detach these parents from John Heard.
