These three TRENCHARDS were called cousins to Ann POWELL, formerly Ann CURTIS of Salem Co., NJ, in her 1716 will. How were they related?

A later John Trenchard, esq. of Salem Co. born in 1742 to George and Jane Wood Trenchard married in 1770 Theodocia OGDEN and they had a son named CURTIS TRENCHARD. This John Trenchard died in 1823 in Fairfield, Cumberland Co., NJ.

So the Curtis named survived through this family.

Sir George Trenchard married Elizabeth Curtis. They had sons, George, Edward, and John. Could it be that Elizabeth had a sister named Ann that married a Powell?

I don't have a clue how they relate but at least your information provides another layer to this family. Samuel Curtis was married to an Ann. They had a daughter named Ann and Samuel may have had a sister named Ann. I'm searching for information on the Ann Curtis who married George Robinson with a possible marriage date of ca 1660.

Can you supply any dates for the marriage of Trenchard to Elizabeth Curtis or the birthdates of their children?

Various records mention Samuel Curtis of Alloways Creek, Salem Co., NJ such as:

[1692/93 Feb 14. On this date Samuel Curitce of Monmouth River aka Allaways Creek, Salem Co. deeded to John Haslewood, for love and affection unto his beloved daughter Ann Curtis who was about to marry John Haslewood. The land was for 1/2 of the land that Samuel currently lived on, the other 1/2 to go to them after the death of Samuel's wife Ann. see Calendar of Delaware Wills (misc. pg 178) and New Jersey Will Book A, pg 182 and 185, NJ Calendar of Wills.]

[1695 July 20. Do. Samuel CURTISE, yeoman, and Benjamin GILL, ship carpenter, both of MunMouth R. alias Allawayes Creek, Salem Co., with his wife Ann HASLEWOOD, now wife of said GILL, executors of John HASLEWOOD dec'd, to the heirs of Thomas WATSON, late of the Town of Greenwitch, dec'd, for 16 acres in said town, formerly surveyed for Thomas MOWYER, on the main street above the lot formerly laid out for George Prouoe, part of the 2,000 a. granted by John FENWICK to Vicessi- mus NETTLESHIP.]

[John Deacon of Philadelphia, late of Barbados wrote his will 09 Mar 1698, probated 20 May 1698 wherein he names his wife Ann as his sole executress. Mention is made of his wife's daughter Ann Curtis.]

I am left with references to Ann Curtis in these and other records but none are enough to secure her position within the families I'm researching.

The Ann who died in 1716, who I believe to have been the wife of Samuel Curtis, also mentioned my beloved Simon Warner. I've never found any information on this man.

There is the following with mention of a William Warner. Perhaps some relationship to Simon.

[NEW JERSEY COLONIAL RECORDS, West Jersey Records: Part 10 - Volume 21 Calendar of Records 1664-1703
1701 Dec. 16. Do. Hugh MIDDLETON of Beriton, Salem Co., mer-chant, to Wm. HALL of Salem Town, merchant, for 100 acres, of which 50 in the Precinct of Allawayes Creek, adjoining Edward CHAMPNEYS, were sold by Wm. WARNER of West Crookerne Wood, Salem Co., to Edward LUMLEY of Maneton, said Co., and wife Alice January 20, 1684-5; they conveyed the land to Richard BUTCHER of Salem Town August 5, 1685, and he assigned it to present grantor December 2, 1696; the other 50 a. adjoin- ing said BUTCHER on the East were sold by Samuel CURTISE of MunMouth R. to John SNOOKE of Salem in 1684 and assigned to grantor January 7, 1688-9. pg 98

First, let me say that the small amount of information I have collected on this line is from these boards and ancestry.com.

The birthdates for the children of George Trenchard and Elizabeth Curtis that I have are:

John Trenchard abt 1686 (not sure if he is older or younger than George)
George Trenchard August 17 1686
Jane Trenchard between 1686-1692
Edward Trenchard about 1688

The mother, Elizabeth Curtis, looks to be a daughter of Samuel Curtis (born abt 1621) and Ann to me.

Simon Warner, born about 1641 may have been the son of William Warner and Joan Curtis, with Joan being a sister of Samuel.

Thanks for those dates, Larry. A little here and a little there and eventually we may get to know more about these families.
