In the SLC Family History library, British film #1,279,418 item 26-30 I found the 27 December 1632 Ogbourne Saint George, Wiltshire, England marriage of immigrants to America Marian NUPORT/NEWPORTE/NEWPORT and Col. William (Guilemeau) HATCHER (d. 1 Apr 1680 Henrico Co., Virginia.
Although I never found the christening of Marian Newporte, I found the 14 Aug 1614 christening of Col. William Hatcher as well as his brother Robert Hatcher's 6 July 1609 in Ogbourne Saint George records listing their father as William Hatcher, Sr..I never found who William married but I believe that William Hatcher, Sr.'s possible brother Richard Hatcher on 7 July 1609 married Alice Painter in Ogbourne Saint Andrew, Wilshire, England. Does anyone have any more on these HATCHERS of Ogbourne Saint George, Wiltshire, England or thereabout?
I know I need to do a lot more work on the HATCHERS, but I've worked thousands of hours on the Newports with only minor success.
The following is some documentation I have on the Newports with a lot ofassumptions on my part.
Richard NEWPORTE/NEWPORT/NUPORT b. abt 1494 Wiltshire, England died bef 1568 High Ercall, Shropshire, England. This Richard Newport had at least 1 daughter Magdalena Newporte who married 1st Richard Herbert and had 5 children.2nd Magdalena married John Danvers (b.28 Jun 1585 Dauntsey, Wilshire, England-d16 Apr 1655 of Chelsea, Middlesex, England).
This Richard Newporte also had at least 2 sons: Walter NEWPORT (aft 1566 nothing else known about Walter) & perhaps my Robert NEWPORT (will 1566 Ogbourne-Saint George) who had at least a dau. Alice and three known sons: John, William, and Geoffrey Newporte.
Robert Newporte sons are possibly as follows (1) Geoffey Newporte (d. 1578 md 18 Oct 1574 Wilcot Parish, Wiltshire, England to Mary Pryor who married 2nd in 1578 to John Burden).Geoffrey and Mary Pryor Newporte had a son Vincent Newporte and perhaps a son William and an daughter Agnes Newporte.Agnes was married 9 Apr 1592 in Wilcot Parish to James Wicke.
(2) John Newporte md Elizabeth _?_ and had a son Nathan Newporte christened 26 Mar 1594/1595 in Ogbourne St. George.I haven't found anymore on John or his family.
(3) Perhaps my William NEWPORT (will 1605 Ogbourne-SG), who md 1st Marian _?_ who died 1 Jan 1582 Ogbourne SG and 2nd Joan _?_. William and his 2nd wife Joan _?_ had 3 daughters Amy, Mary, and Elizabeth, but I don't have anything on them after Williams 1605 will.Joan _?_ Newport had md 2nd Thomas Potter 25 Aug 1606 Ogbourne SG. Both Joan and Thomas Potter died in 1623.
My William NEWPORT I believe had at least a son Robert and at least 5 daughters. Daughter Margaret died before the 1605 will, Amy, Mary, and Elizabeth NEWPORT were unmarried at the time of their father's 1605 will which is why I assume they were daughter's of his 2nd marriage to Joan _?_ Newport. Daughter Margaret who died before the 1605 will I assume was a daughter of his 1st wife Marian _?_ Newporte along with Elizabeth Newporte (died 24 Aug 1612 Ogbourne SC) the wife of Edmund Pithouse of nearby Ogbourne St Andrew and mother of at least 4 Pithouse children.
I believe that the Robert NEWPORT (wife unknown) who was probably the Robert who was the son of my supposed William (will 1605 OSG)was the only male NEWPORT having children in Ogbourne-St. George at the time my Marian NEWPORT md 1632 my William HATCHER (son of William HATCHER) before they went to America.
This Robert NEWPORT had at least 2 sons (Joseph Newporte (d. 1631 OSG) and John Newporte (chr. 1621 Ogbourne St. Andrew)and 2 other daughters (Abigail Newporte (chr. 1608 OSG) and Elizabeth Newporte (chr. 1612 OSG), but I don't know when any of them married where they went or anything else.The children could be wrong or incomplete because I couldn't find a christening, marriage, or will for Robert Newporte; therefore, these are only assumptions unless documented with a date.
It bothers me that I can't find Marian Newporte's christening or any other information about her except her marriage to William Hatcher, but the Bishop's transcripts records are incomplete and I was unable to find any comple parish records.Marian could be from any of the other Newportes so mentioned or not.
Is there anyone working on any of these families? I would love to find someone or someplace where I can get information on these NEWPORTS and/or HATCHERS of Wiltshire, English families. Any help would be gratefully appreciated
