Could someone tell me please??? Who were the wives of John Bean of Exeter, and did the one said to have come over here with him really do so??? There are names of Margaret (some have Edwards???) and Hannah Lissen- the sawmill owner's daughter.... How does a POW get the privelege of having his wife come over with him??? Did he have children before he became a POW in Scotland, and they followed with the mother???? And, if she died on the ship as some stories say, then who took care of the children (if there were any) while he was "being sold" and whatnot???
... just curious???? They're are soooo many stories out there, it is really hard to sort it out, and I thought if I was wondering these things, perhaps someone else was, as well... so, now, if someone does know the real deal, we'll all know!!! Right???
Thank you.
