I'm searching for the background/parents of Mary Wells, who married Richard Tuite who was born in about 1765. The following is the information I have:
Richard Tuite was born in about 1765. 98
He was married to Mary Wells.99
He was married for a second time to Petronella Zimonson Doncker, who was born on 20 October 1748, baptized Protestant, on St. Eustatius on 8 December 1748.100 She was the daughter of Abraham Simonsz Doncker (c1721-after 1781) and Elizabeth de Windt (1722-before 1781). 101 This was her third marriage. 102
In 1780, he was resident, alone, at Nicholas Tuite & Joseph Stapleton’s estate Strawberry Hill, 29 Queen’s Quarter. 103
He was the manager at estate Sion Farm, 26 Queen’s Quarter, on St. Croix,104 e.g. 1788. 105 He was resident here: 1781 - alone106; 1783 – whites: 1 male, 2 sons, 1 daughter107; 1787 – himself, wife, 1 son & 2 daughters108; 1788 – himself, wife, 1 son, 1 daughter. 109
Would be immensely grateful for any kind of help since I've hit a rather dead end in my own search.
