Robert Paddock's parents Jean Paddoc and Jane Jenning are completely (by pre-1700 standards) unsourced. They lead to a long line of ancestors that goes as far back as 1300, the only source being a dead link, apparently to an online family tree.
Why do I think they might be Anjou?
- It is odd that someone with such an un-French name as Paddock (I tried all the different spellings that appear in the Paddock ancestry and none of has been recorded once in France since 1891, except Paddock, which appears only after 1941) would have been assigned origins in France
- The mother's name is Jenning, and Jenning, Jeanninge, etc, is a name that has been used by Anjou for invented French ancestors. (See Philippa Jeanninge, from the Tone family, a confirmed Anjou fabrication)
- There is a Bascom in this line, and Anjou has used Bascom elsewhere. (see the category)
- There are ancestors in Bavay and Le Cateau-Cambrésis, both places where Anjou loved to put ancestors.
- There is at least one connection the Jacques family, another listed Anjou fraud, through "ancestors" that appear to be in common.
- One line in this genealogy is Traillour (another faux French name), and Traylor is another genealogy listed as tainted by Anjou.
- A few trademark mentions of convenient documents (see https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Padoc-1)
- See this caveat in Nicholson Ancestry, page 94: "The French part of the genealogy given below cannot be proved or disproved.... the name of Gustave Anjou was quoted.... The name of the French researcher of the French part is not known. ... Some of the documents seem almost too good to be true".
I'm aware of opening a huge can of worms here. I've tried working on Anjou frauds in the past and they're not easy to deal with, with the big numbers of profiles involved and the ramifications into different families. Let's say I'm testing the waters.
