It also needs to be checked by the leader of the Puritan Great Migrations project.

Send them a message.


I see no sources for proof of his parentage nor his wives.

There may also be the same Henry Lawrence on WikiTree that has the same biography as this one. More research needed.


The Lawrence/Laurence from Wissett in the Puritan Great Migrations is under lengthy discussions already at WikiTree . Also an 1857 publication of the Lawrence Family of Massachusettes ( and Wisset ) seem to have spurred these connections that may or may not be proven in

Cover of: The genealogy of the family of John Lawrence, of Wisset, in Suffolk, England, and of Watertown and Groton, Massachusetts by Lawrence, John

I am posting these links so the leaders can decide what to do with your profile of Henry Lawrence.

First give the profile a category, then seek the assistance of that project leader to grant any PPP that may be worthy. I note there are two pending merges for Henry Lawrence, and it may well be better to await the approval & completion of these merges before seeking to PPP the profile.

Thank You for the response. I have John Joseph Lawrence as a son of Henry. do I have to wait for this one. I would like to join this project as it is a direct ancestor. it would be nice to add them. I will contact the PPP coordinator.
Dan, use the PGM tag here on g2g if you want to follow PGM-related topics.

The PGM project badge is for people willing to proactively clean up PGM profiles. It's not meant to be a badge to identify descendants.  We've had folks confused about this before.

I see you got some work done on Henry Lawrence and I will look at it closer this am but this profile will be merged into the lower IDs before if becomes protected.

Pgs. 244, 245
New England, The Great Migration and The Great Migration Begins, 1620-1635 for Henry Lawrence
Great Migration, Vol 4, I-L

says place of origins UNKNOWN. No wives nor children mentioned. We would have to disconnect him from the parents, for sure.

Quick review of the proposed merges suggests caution. It looks like there were two different men one of who did not migrate.
