Katherine [1]

Katherine Roberts[2]

1625 Birth

Born ABT 1625 in England [2]

Born 1644, All Hallows, Anne Arundel, Maryland, [1] Note: All Hallows Parish Records do not begin for another 50 years, and there are no records for a Katherine Roberts.

Parents Unknown

The parents for Katherine Roberts are unknown.

Many popular Genealogies show her parents to be George Roberts and his wife Anne Reade of Wolstone, England. There is indeed such a George and Anne, who had numerous children. While their other children are named in his 1654 will, there is no Katherine listed. [3]


If Katherine and Andrew were born in the 1830's, they could have been born in either England or Virginia. If they were born in Virginia, one would look for some record of them with their father Lower Norfolk County.

It also might be that brother and sister were born in England in the 1630's and immigrated when they were able. If they immigrated before 1649 they probably immigrated to Virginia and then came to Maryland with the Puritans.

If they immigrated after 1649, they may have come directly to Maryland.Day-1904 10:13, 10 June 2016 (EDT)

1650 Marriage to John Larkin

She married John Larkin b: ABT 1620 in England [2]

1635 Married John Larkin (1614-1702)[1] Note -- More research required to resolve marriage date prior to birth date!

If John was born in 1620 and she was born in 1625, an estimated marriage when she was 18 would place their marriage at 1643. If based on the birth of their first child in 1653, an estimated marriage date would be 1652. A rounded number estimate would be 1650.

1682 Witness to Will of Andrew Roberts

It would appear Katherine had a brother named Andrew, whose will she witnessed.

Removed Katherine as a daughter of George Roberts as no such person appears in the records. If evidence is found that she belongs as a daughter, she can easily be added back in to this family. Likes between her and George are retained in the narrative.
