I am a descendant of Thomas who was born 1640 Exeter, England and died 12/1/1708 in Somerset County Maryland. He married Martha (Margarett) Polk 12/27/1867 she was born 1632 and died 1711.He came on a ship called The Promise, his bro. John was a 1st mate on ship, set Thomas up in a trading post on Chesapeake Bay. Are you a descendant of this line of Pollitts?

Hello Thomas,

Yes, I am a descendant of this line ... Thomas Pollitt b. 1640 is my 8th great-grandfather. Thomas is an easy nut to crack, yet at the same time there are inconsistencies that have transposed over time along with other unanswered questions! For example, where did you get Exeter England ... I have not found definitive proof of that? ... I have seen that the ship Promise left from there, but that does not mean HE was from there. Another example is his wife: It is believed she was a Polk ... and his will states Margaret, not Martha. It is thought that there may be a Martha and a Margarett Polk ... but no definitive findings there yet, either. Also, the dates you have for Margaret(Martha) birth and death are inconsistent with marriage and children ... if b. 1632 she would be about 55 when married ... not impossible for children but certainly improbable ... so far, the true b. date is unknown and the death d. of 1711, if I remember correctly actually belongs to Richard Tull, 2nd husband of Margaret. Oh, you can see his will transcribed at my website:
http://www.gate.net/~bwl/ I need to make updates to my site, so contact me direcly for more info in the interim.
Finally, another main point example is: Thomas supposedly arrived in MD around 1668; he didn't marry until 1687 and that is the first, so far, that we see of him in MD records, so where was he for about 19 years before he married.

Well, this turned out lengthy, but I state again, Yes, I am a descendant of this line of Pollitts.

Bryan

P.S. Gee, you name sounds familiar, somehow? ;0) later!

Jeanie,

Yes, Chuck and I recently exchange a slew of information. He is currently reviewing my research notes that I made about his work, so that we can discuss ideas and avenues ... Thank you for acknowledging my work.
Say, if you are a cousin of Chuck's, I hope that is the Pollitt side (or else we wouldn't be on this forum, ;0)) anyway, why don't you contact me direcly ... BWL@gate.net ... and we can talk some more ... I would be interesting in adding your branch to my material if I don't have it already.

I look forward to hearing from you,

Bryan
