red mail Mighill Hopkinson Geneology Sought
I am looking for the family origins of Mighill Hopkinson. Mighill appears to have accompanied the Reverend Ezekiel Rogers from Rowley Parish, East Riding, Yorkshire, England to the Massachusetts Bay colony on or before 1638. Meghill helped establish the township of Rowley, Massachusetts. His decendants went on to establish themselves honorably and with distinction in the new world. I am a direct decendant of Mighill and am looking to establish my family line as far back as I might be able to search. Does anyone have any information on Mighill and/or the Hopkinson family in or around the Rowley Parish, East Riding area? Perhaps you may have information on the Reverend Ezekiel Rogers of Rowley Parish that I may look into further should no information be forth coming on Mighill Hopkinson? Thank you all! Dale

red mail Looking for my English roots...
Searching for information about Micholas PEARSON born around 1584 in Yorkshire,England, possibly East Riding. Spouse is unknown, child is John PEARSON b: 17 FEB 1609/10 and migrated to Rowley, Massachusetts sometime between 1638 and 1643 (probably 1643), where he started the first fulling or clothiers mill in New England. John PEARSON married Dorcas PICKARD in 1642. She was born sometime between 1619 and 1621 and I believe her father's name was John. Any information about these PEARSON and PICKARD lines before 1643 would be greatly appreciated. Thank You!

The Northern Division of Holderness is missing and only 6 townships in the Middle Division ofHolderness are included: Drypool, Marfleet, Meaux, Southcoates, Sutton and Stoneferry and Wawne. It also contains the names of just under 230 recusant catholics. There is a short foreword and an index to places. 83 pages. Card cover. Stapled. It will be useful for locating surnames in particular parishes at a date some 40 years prior to the first Hearth Tax returns. Available for £4.99 per copy. P&P is £1 per copy in the UK and £2 per copy everywhere else. ISBN 0-9543697...
