I was under the impression Joseph, son of Joseph & Francina, married Martha England below. Perhaps she remarried since Joseph would have died fairly young. I was also under the impression Francina Herman Wood died abt. 1713, though my notes don't include why.
Funny, I was looking at the Will of Isaac England last week and noted his father-in-law, Gasper Hood. Casper & Eliza. Hoodt were testators, with Isaac England, in John Thomson's 1711 Will. John Casper Hoodt's 1740 Cecil Administration lists Edward Rumsey as Administrator. What struck my interest was another 1738 Prerogative Court Abstract listing John Casper Wood who also lists Edward Rumsey as Administrator.
