Rhys Ap THOMAS
Would like some help in finding information on Rhys Ap THOMAS.In history compiled by a family member however without the papers and not sure where this info came from I am trying to get proof."In the records kept of the proceeding of the royal court dated Sept. ye eleventh, one thousand five hundred sixty eight "Ye Rhys Ap Thomas was summoned before her Majestie Ye Queene and he was made ye Knight of Ye Garter," Provine of Kerrycant Wales.NO effort has been made to learn what won Rhys Ap Thomas his title.There is further record that this same Rhys Ap Thomas' eldest son was Townly Thomas."There is no other record that we have of any siblings of Townly or who Rhys Ap Thomas married.Looking for that information.
According to our records Townly had three sons, John, James, and Merriott.We are from John's line and have on other information about James or Merriott.Looking for any information.It is that John came to America when he was 14, being born Sept 15, 1621.He booked passage on the Hopewell, a companion to the Mayflower in 1635.Any information you could find and provide would be appreciated.
