Records at Hall of Records in Maryland, L213, f307, 1662, reads: "Then came Antonie LeCompte and enters a right vist (namely) for his wife Easter, John Gooteer, Andrew Guidrey, and Ambrose for which he demands a warrant having sworn as usually on a warrant and to the Surveyor Generall to layout for this LeCompte, 200 acres of land. Dated the 21st of February 1662. Return Last August last." So, evidently my ancestor John Gootee (Gautier) was in Maryland in February 1662. According to another document at the Archives of Maryland, LWH&L pg 48,19 April 1671, John Gottee and wife Margaret and Stephen Besson, born in Kingdom of France, were naturalized. Can anyone help me find the area of France my ancestors were from ? I have searched records and paid for info from France but have never been able to pinpoint where in France thay were from. Obviously John Gootee metLeCompte in England as that is where the ship departed from. Any help with this problem will be most welcomed. Any leads appreciated.
