John Hudleston and Barbara Poulter Microfilm 0375028 24 SEP 1616 Saint Gregory By Saint Paul, London, London, England. Their son is shown by two records John Hudleston Christening: 18 FEB 1619 Saint Dunstan, Stepney, London, England Age at Christening: 1 Death: 12 MAY 1628 and JOHN HUDDLESTONE Christening: 06 JUN 1625 Saint Dunstan, Stepney, London, England Death: 12 MAY 1628. The death dates match up. With this information we can conclude that he was born 18 FEB 1619 and was christened 06 JUN 1619. 6902926 is the Film number given for both records but 1568-1620 is given for the first record and 1621-1641 is given for the second record. The day and month match up but there is 6 years between 1619 and 1625. Name Church of England.

The Bona Nova, from London, arrived at Virginia Passengers from the Port of London on the Bona Nova to Virginia: Ship and Passenger Information: Boyse, Allice~See name in Virginia Muster, January 24, 1624/5 (Her husband. Luke, arrived on the Edwin in May, 1619). We can now know the wife Allice Boyse was referring to in her statement and that she knew Barbara Poulter before she made the trip on the Bona Nova. This atleast covers Captain John Huddleston's birth in Ratcliff which is of Stepney and his marriage to Barbara Poulter which is of Stepney. The birth of their child John shows Stepney. From the marriage record of 1616 we can surmise he stayed in Ratcliff, Stepney from 1587 to 1616. This would mean he was 29 years old when he was married. We can see they had a child, John who died in 1628 with age at death 12. From the Bona Nova trip passages we can deduce that two years after that marriage he left England to Virginia. The Bona Nova Voyages~1618 The Bona Nova, from London, arrived at Virginia Ship and Passenger Information: Passengers from the Port of London on the Bona Nova to Virginia. Paraphrasing Allice Boyse's statement "or else said he never had the use of his owne wife" shows a past tense. We don't know if Barbara Poulter made the trip with Captain John Huddleston.
I have been trying to find more information on Barbara Poulter.

Smyth of Nibley Papers Public Libraries, 1619, 1621 Page 1 of 1 Survey Report No. GL.5 Title Smyth of Nibley papers Vol.V No. 65 Depositions in the Court of Common Pleas,17 November 1621. The depositions are made by John Mennys, gent., of Sandwich, Kent; John Huddleston, gent., of Ratcliffe, Middlesex, master of the "Bona Nova"; William Jackson of Ratcliffe' gunner of the "Bona Nova"; John Ward of Ratcliffe, mariner; and George Hooper of Ratcliffe, mariner. The depositions state that the deponents were in Virginia during the period January - June, and that they had learned of the death of Mr. william Tracy of Berkeley, Shirley Hundred, Virginia, apparently during or earlier than January. One deposition refers to a Captain Powell, who had married William Tracy's daughter.
In researching Henry Poulter we are once again drawned back to the 'Records of the Virginia Company' because of his wife Francis Throckmorton. A Sir William Throckmorton, John Smythe of Nibley, Richard Berkeley and George Thorpe are very much involved with Sir George Yardley, the Virginia governor because through a collected pool of money of theirs in association with our Thomas Smythe, treasurer. This can be found on page 130 pertaining to the indenture, page 136 pertaining to the patent, and many other pages. A possibility exists that Barbara Poulter could of been the wife of our Captain John Huddleston. This also lets us understand the significanse of our Captain John Huddleston learning of the death of William Tracy because page 266 'Records of the Virginia Company' CIV. William Tracy.

On page 291 Sir William Throckmorton and William Tracy are concerned about a silkworm business.
