Hi, Ellen. I also had Winns going to Maine (then was Mass. Bay Colony) then to NH, then back to Mass. where I grew up. Will post you some resources about the Woburn Winn line. This is what I know of Edward after a lot of searches: was a farmerm + carpenter; probably sailed out of London with Barnabis Davis (?), probably born in England and not Wales, either in Thornton-Curteis and distantly related to the Wynnes there, or in Ipswich, England. There is no record of his baptism; I checked and that was not unusual; esp at that time and esp if you were not well to do and esp if you werenot Church of England (and there were breakaway Protestant sects at that time; and at the time of his immigration, Mass. was highly Puritan). Marriage bans were also supposed to be Church of England so a lot didn't record them and wasn't yet recorded anyway on a regular basis; any records which might have otherwise existed have long since been destroyed or not regularly retained at that time; and so on. Anyway I have 2 sources for Maine genealogy which include the Winn line (still same as yours; Edward had about 9 kids - my Winns went to Maine about the time of the Amer. Revolution), which I hope will shed some light on the controversy of his parenthood. The overwhelming majority of people on Rootsweb and other family pedigrees still list him as born in Thornton-Curteis, only one in Ipswich. Will send you my sources as soon as I can go back through them; will then also let you know whatever turns up from the Maine genealogists whenever that happens. How nice to have a DNA already on record! It will no doubt come in handy in the future; it's certainly the new technology of genealogy. Nice to hear from you too. Marcia (Winn) Lent. Talk to you soon.
