Hello Winkfields in the USA. I am John Rose, born in London, England in 1931. My great, great, great grandfather, Henry Rose married a Judith Winkfield in Greenwhich, Kent, England in 1810. I have been trying to trace the place of birth and family of Judith. So far without success.
I have found on Genealogy.com that the Bryant Winkfield born in 1641 in England had two daughters, both born at Marlborough, Wiltshire, England. Grace was born in 1665 and Christened at St. Mary, Marlborough on 28 Sept. 1665. Her younger sister Elizabeth, born on 20 January 1667 is recorded as dying on 1 December 1724 in Va.
All of the Winkfields I have been able to trace, born in the 1500s to 1600s seem to have come from the South of England - Hastings, Sussex - London - Middlesex.
Since my G.G.G. grandmother married in Kent it is possible she was born in that region, perhaps at Deptford or Lydd, or maybe in the East of London.
Any information on these Winkfields would be helpful to me.
