A very interesting question!hatched? sprang up from the ocean?
I have tried to get those who insist that he was of the Malebisse line to send me their documentation for his parentage, but ALWAYS receive a response that they can't find it, it won't send via internet, thay aren't allowed to share that information, etc. I think they are so stuck in the "lie" that they are afraid of finding out the truth. My guess would be that he was from England (no big surprise) but as to where, I do not know. If you pur a query on this forum such as "Origin of Matthew Beckwith of CT", or some such, I'm sure you will receive quite a few responses. Virgil Huntley who respondes to many queries may be able to give you some suggestions.....Mahlon Erickson
