I've just spent 1/2 hour going through the archives of the KNIGHT List and
Boards, and the MA List, and I'm not finding a summary of the KNIGHT
patriarchs in 1600's MA Bay Colony(including NH).
Or, if there was a partial summary, the postings are from several years ago.
From the old postings, I'll mention from different researchers:
John KNIGHT, b~1595, and Mary PICKERING, who came from Southampton,
Hampshire, England.Their children were:Mary, b1620,Joseph, b1624,
John, b1630, and Michael, b1634, all born in England.The family appears
in Charlestown by 1674.
From "Pioneers of MA" by Pope,
KNIGHT, William, Salem, 1636;Lynn, juryman, ....
KNIGHT, John, Cambridge, 1635; carpenter ....
KNIGHT, John, with wife, Mary, had child, Joseph KNIGHT, who died in Woburn
in 1687, and had wife, Hannah.
Ebenezer KNIGHT, b1695, Woburn, who m. Mary JOHNSON 1717 and had 9 children,
and m. 2)Elizabeth BAYTON 1742.
..I found at least 2 postings where researchers said that they had a
KNIGHT data base / web site,but the web sites (this morning) are no longer
And, I saw that one book mentions there is a "KNIGHT book,"but there is no
further information on it.
And, I checkedthe WorldConnect Project, and either the site isn't working
at the moment, or I'm not finding the KNIGHT name mentioned.
Would anyone have time to post the KNIGHT patriarchs from the 1630's and
Betty(near Lowell, MA)
My ancestors are Ashabel / Ashbel RICE and Percissa "Persis" KNIGHT who were
in Marlborough, MA, then "Maine" in late 1700's.They spent a few years in
Digby, NS, ~1800, and then returned to "Maine."I am descended from one
of their youngest, Daniel RICE, b~1804.And, then I am descended from his
youngest(of 10), Charles Wellington RICE, b1850 Lubec, ME.
I am told by researchers that I am probably descended from Ebenezer RICE,
b1726, Woburn, who had 3 wives, and Percissa might have been the child from
the second wife, Mary.
