My mother is an English immigrant.
My dad's a descendant of over a hundred known U.S. colonial immigrants. They were farmers, adventurers, mariners, Puritans, and Quakers, migrating to New Jersey from Philadelphia, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Amsterdam, New Sweden, and one from the Virginia Colony (maybe). Many migrated from Long Island when land in New Jersey became available. Others landed in the Garden State and stayed put. :)
|The only place I have this surname is on their son's death certificate. On her son's marriage record, her name is Layman.|
Another pair of brick walls I'd like to solve is Cornelius Shaw and Phebe Joslin. He was a Revolutionary patriot, she might be a descendant of people who survived a massacre in King Phillip's War. Maybe.

Have you seen Shadwell, Middlesex at "A Vision of Britain through Time", a project of University of Portsmouth and others?
Maybe it throws some light on other research about where Bradway was from?
I love maps, so this is one of my favorite sources.

I did get your merger request. My husband is related to Ruth Cope, his grandfather was Richard Benton Beeson and Julia Louella Dwinell. Richard was orphaned at around age 7 and taken in by his uncle’s family.His uncle and father were both found to be in disunity with the Quakers at approximately the same time. His parents died of paralysis. At a 50th wedding anniversary of one of the uncle that raised him, it was noted that there may have been some wife swapping or sharing going on between these brothers in Pennsylvania. But we have never gained access to these Quaker records. I would love to merge the Cope’s but have never really had my hands on actual data on Ruth’s siblings. Over the next week, I will recheck, Thank you, MaryDon E Beeson

I am doing OK. Hope all is well with you. Are you completely settled in yet? I was supposed to finish a boring list of things like income tax and probate filings, but you enticed me away with the problem of Henry Coleman. I have found a few specifics, including the original source documents that tie him to the Long Finn Rebellion, and the fine he received, and his brother's will (1698). Those are all mentioned by Craig in the 1693 census (family no. 71 in the Wicaco area). He is on P. 76 at http://nc-chap.org/cranehook/pdfs/wicaco1693.pdf
Unfortunately, not much detail on the wife. I'll add the three primary sources I have (and two other secondary) in the next day or so. You can run with the 1693 Census, if you like.
