birth date above is actually baptism date

Birthdate is unlikely to be forthcoming, as there were no birth certificates at that period, and only the baptism was recorded.

Knowling-15 and Knowling-12 appear to represent the same person because: The birthdate of 1685 for Dorcas is an estimate without evidence. However, a baptism record exists for a Dorcas Knowling for 1677 in South Pool, about 8-10 km from Kingsbridge where Dorcas and Richard Hawkins were married in 1706 and about 5 km from Kingsbridge where they died. Given that the 1685 date is unsubstantiated and the 1677 is documented, the profiles should be merged. Eric

Dorcas is 22 degrees from Kevin Bacon, 20 degrees from Karen Tobo, 16 degrees from Queen Elizabeth II Windsor and 16 degrees from Isabella I de Castilla y León on our single family tree. Login to find your connection.
