From Babcock Genealogy by Stephen Babcock 1903 p. 11

When the will of James Badcock, Sr was written, June 12, 1679, the first syllable of the family name was written Bad, and had been so written up to that time. Six years later, when the will of John Babcock was made by the Town Council of Westerly, June 26 1685, the first syllable was spelled Bab, and has been so spelled ever since.

James is 14 degrees from Kevin Bacon, 24 degrees from Bob Dylan, 15 degrees from AJ Jacobs, 18 degrees from Michael Phelps and 13 degrees from Queen Elizabeth II of the Commonwealth Realms on our single family tree. Login to find your connection.
