Hello Mary, I have been researching the Congdon's for about 6 years and have them back to John Congdon of Wales (born 1610)who came to Virginia . My Grandmother was a Congdon from Berwick, NS. Any help I can give, please get in touch. Cheers Joanne

Do you have any documentation about John Congdon, Virginia, and his family; Benjamin, David and John? We have a "family tradition" that I've been trying to document.

Hi Mary, the line I have for a Kempton Congdon is: father William Henry brn 1828 wife Rachel Best born 1839 and they had 7 children including Kempton. Williams parents were Enoch Congdon and Eunice Davison and they had 8 children
Enoch's parents were Joseph Congdon and Mary Cornwallis, but he was married twice and his second wife was Mary Wells and they had 10 children and my line in throught them. Joseph's parents were Benjamin III and Elizabeth Sweet and they had 8 children.
My Line runs like this:
John Congdon born Wales 1610
Benjamin I born 1642 St. David Wales
Benjamin II born 1674 and married Frances Stafford Portsmouth RI
Benjamin III born Oct 20, 1702 N. Kingston RI died Windsor Nova Scotia 1777 - married Elizabeth Sweet
Joseph m. Mary Wells
Benjamin V m. Ruth Reynolds
Samuel m. Ruth Fisher
William Henry m. Letitia Newcomb
Hattie (my Grandmother) m. Charles Packham
