Biography

  • On my mother's side, the lines go back to Jamestowne, Virginia and John Fisher. In her lines some of the names are Fisher, Floyd, Blackshear, Hamilton, Hazzard, Duggar, Harvey and Williams.
  • John Fisher was from Maidstone, Kent and answered the 1619 Visitation of Kent at age 16. By 1624 he was in Virginia and answered the 1624 /5 muster. He came to the new world with his cousin William Epes to manage his holdings for him. His lines through his mother, Benetta Dering, go back to Edward III et al, including direct connections to 11 of the possible 16 lines to Magna Carta Barons. (Out of the 25 original)
  • Most of my mother's lines are from Virginia, North/South Carolina and Georgia. A few, like the Blackshear (Blackshaw) lines started in the north and quickly migrated down south in the early to mid 1700s.
  • On my father's side I'm a 2nd generation American. My paternal grandparents were from Norway. My great-grandparents (grandfather's parents) immigrated from Vikna, Nord-Trøndelag where they owned Buø Farm on a small island off larger Yttre Vikna Island. My great-grandparents (grandmother's parents) are from Land, Oppland and Vang/Ringsager Hedmark. I spend a lot of my research time browsing Norwegian church, land and probate records on the Norway DigitalArkivet. One of the lines weaves into the Blix ancestral lines and goes back to Godred Crovan, Norse-Gael king of Dublin and the Isles.

Where is Samuel and Susan's VA marriage record? Son Charles is put in the care of Dixon without naming his parents. He left no will.

Hi Robyn,

Thanks for having a Big Heart and adopting Orphan Profiles. You will want to read this After adopting orphans to understand what to do next.

Hi, Robyn!

Thanks for your follow-up note re: John Fendin's will. If you have a scan of one of the pages, that would be an excellent addition to his profile. The link to Ancestry could be helpful to some people, so it wouldn't hurt to put it on there, as well. :-)

Happy WikiTreeing!

Hi Robyn,

Thanks for taking the Pre-1700 Quiz!

Because pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants, working within the projects which coordinate them is essential. Liz suggested the US Southern Colonies Project. You could also use the Pre-1700 Projects list to find one which best fits your research focus. Review the project pages to learn how to collaborate with the project members.

Can't find what you're looking for? Let me know, and I can make some suggestions! :-)

sorry. ran out of room.

I was at General Convention too! I had a sales table for a couple days - selling Christmas ornaments as a Manassas Chapter fundraiser. I was beside the Florida chapter doing fundraising for the statue of Old Joe.

Cheers, Liz

ah - if you're asking about descendants of Fisher, they are not within the scope of the Magna Carta project, which is between Gateway and Surety Baron. The Descendant categories are for those profiles that have been reviewed/approved by the Magna Carta project as being in a badged trail from that Surety Baron.

If you're looking for a project that covers Fisher descendants, you might try the US Southern Colonies project. He's Virginia, and with recent changes, the Virginia Project is no longer strictly post-USA, but it is primarily post-USA (and it doesn't work the same as the Magna Carta Project. . . we're not actively going out and developing/sourcing any particular families). However, we are active in the thons, and the Team Virginia Source-a-Thon pages might have some useful info...

Hi! To find Fisher's WikiTree trail that WikiTree's Magna Carta project has reviewed/approved follow the "Magna Carta badge" - open both parents' profiles & repeat on the one with the project's seal (aka "project box", but the project refers to these profiles as being badged/in a badged trail). It is often a different trail than the one returned by WikiTree's Special:Relationship. The trail goes to Brent-21, whose mother is the daughter of Berkeley-534, whose parents are Thomas & Elizabeth (Neville) Berkeley, who are both badged. Thomas (Berkeley-335) is badged only to Quincy-226, and Special:Relationship returns a badged trail between those two profiles.

Cheers, Liz

P.S. Yup - Manassas Chapter #175, Virginia Division, UDC. You?

HI Robyn, Thank you for the information on Iver and Anna. Their profiles are open so feel free to add any information and sources that you have for the family. Also to add profiles for the children that I didn't include for them. Thanks, Patt

Now that you have had a little time to try WikiTree, there are a few more features you may find useful.

Ideas on what to include in a profile can be found in Styles and Standards, including some tips on writing biographies.

If you need to describe an event, an heirloom or a location relevant to your research, you may like to learn about Free Space Profiles.

Lastly, sometimes you'll run into unresponsive profile managers. We have a process for resolving those unfortunate situations.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask via my profile page.

Hi Robyn,

Thank you for joining WikiTree. As a WikiTree Mentor I am available to answer any questions or help solve any issues you may be having.

How To Use WikiTree is a good starting point and the Help Index is an important place to find out how to do most tasks.

Do you have Royal Ancestors? They are already here on Wikitree! Rather than create duplicate profiles for them, please contact the EuroAristo Project to discuss connecting your family line to their profiles.

Feel free to ask me via my profile page if you have any questions.

I posted my little Viking Boat which I use all over the Internet when working on my father's side....pure Norwegian. I read and post the baptism, confirmation, marriage, death etc records from the DigitalArkivet. I have posted over 1000 individuals and all their proofs. Be aware the DA is completely changing their site and former links, in March. They have extended the "old" site for an additional 2 months...hint: practice with the new site before the old one evaporates.
