Anybody fancy double checking the last bit for me ????
« on: Sunday 18 October 20 13:31 BST (UK) »
Hi everyone
Trying to get my head round the last bit of my family tree on my grans side and was wondering if anybody fancies double checking it for me as is all getting a bit strange  ...... Iíve finished it as far as I can to 1550 and  just wanna see if someone else came up with the same for the last few generations ........
I need to go from a Henry Watts born 1550 in georgeham Devon died 1626 ....... married a faith Elliot and had a son Tristram ..... Iíve managed to take it a few more generations but is getting all strange so was wondering if anybody fancied double checking n see if we come up with the same ....... 🤷‍♂️

Henry Watts b 1550 Georgeham ,Devon
brother Richard Watts b 1558 - died 1635
father John Watts b 1530 - died 1604
father of John Watts - John Watts b 1485 died 1530 / mother Alice Gates b circa 1480

of course - this is someone elses tree - so YOU have to decide if it is genuine - have you ever heard of the tree owner - Paralee Eckman ??

have you got a daughter for Henry and Faith
Steffanett Watts ??
doesn't mention Faith as mother - but looks a very good bet to me - unless there were TWO Henry Watts in Georgeham at the time

 :)

ADDED
If you think Steffanett IS Henry / Faiths daughter - here is her marriage - also in Georgeham
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:N2VW-T46

Bartholomew and Steffanett have 6 children 1608 - 1620 - ALL born in Georgeham

Morning all
Thatís the problem Iím having ..... according to ancestry and my heritage Henryís father is sir John watts the Lord Mayor of London ...... personally I canít see how you go from being Lord Mayor and founder of the India shipping company to a farmer in Devon ..... plus On checking wiki it said he had 4 sons but another site said 6 🤷‍♂️ I think I got it as sir johns brother John wade watts was his dad but am still not 100% and it totally threw me with all the sir johns 1 ,2 n 3 as again according to wiki sir John ( the Lord Mayor ) his dad was called Thomas 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️ Has totally confused me for days lol ...... plus I deleted it if ancestry as didnít think it was right so canít get it back up again lol

I am a bit confused
Sir JOHN WATTS WAS B 1554 in Hertfordshire

your HENRY WATTS was b 1550 in Devon - father John Watts b 1530- died 1604  - why would you get the Sir John and Henrys father John mixed up there is a birth difference of 24 years AND a different County - or am I missing something ??
