I am trying to find correct information on the parents of Joane ALLEN BRIGGS.Most databases list parents as George and Katherine Starkes Allen.Joane is listed with about 13 siblings, the last born when this George and Katherine would have been 65-70 years old.I don't think so.
Joane's marriage to Clement Briggs is recorded in MA in 1630, yet this George and Katherine did not immigrate to MA until 1635 or so.Which means Joane, daughter of George, would not even have been there in 1630.
I saw an interesting post by Tom Hunt in which he found a John Allen in the area before the 1630 marriage of Joane.And records he found from England list a daughter Joane of a John Allen, born the right time for this Joane.I have not been able to contact Tom Hunt. Tom, if you read this, please contact me.
I would be interested in any information or other theories as to who the real parents of Joane might be.One thing I do know for sure is that the databases that list the information about George and Katherine and their 14 kids who arrived about 5 years after one of them was married in MA--well, it just can't be.
If anyone has more information on Joane and her family, I would be interested in hearing about it.
