Molly, I have not worked on the Paddock Family for a long time and read your posting this evening. I descend from Zachariah Paddock through his son, Nathaniel. I have read that the Paddock Family are from France and moved to Ireland and lived there a couple of generations before coming to the Mass. Bay Colony. The Paddocks in Ireland married a Ball girl and a Jennings girl. My records are packed away at this time but this may clear up some of your questions about the family. I don't know if they were Huganots or Puritans in France, probably, Huganots. The Bunker Family were Huganots before going to England to flee the Roman Catholic Church's prosecutions. I found this information in the Dallas Genealogical Library in Texas.
