Based on family papers reviewed by geneaologist, Eric P. Conard, we know the Thomas Soper indicated above was married 2x, Anne Mitchell b 1615 d 1690 and Elizabeth Cooke b 1623. Children by Anne were: Benjamin, John, Mary, & Samuel Soper. Elizabeth Cooke had Henry Soper b 1640 South Hampshire, Devon, Eng. d Dec 1695 Huntington, Long Island, NY.
I am interested in identifying the ancestry of Thomas Soper: names, marriages, & where they were before coming to England. My research has identified possible parents of my Thomas Soper to be Thomas b 1592 married to Joan Avery born 1596 and grandparents John Soper married to Joan/Joanne Smerdon. Other research notes the father to be William Soper. I am totally unable to verify the parents, or other ancestors of Thomas Soper in my family tree - Sandra Brodwin - on Ancestry.com
I would truly appreciate your help.
