Re: SAMUEL BOUTWELL from Elizabeth City Co. to Bath, NC
There is no know proof, as of date, that proves for a fact who the father was of Samuel, John, and William Boutwell that migrated to NC in 1701 with George and Thomas Birkenhead.
However, there is an Adam Boutwell in Va. that died circa 1694. It is thought that this may have been their father. Samuel stayed in NC and settled in Bath, whereas, John and William went back to Va., if that's where that came from in the first place. The will of Adam Boutwell only mentions his wife Mary Boutwell, and that is vague at that. There are MANY Boutwell researchers that are at the same brick wall.
I am writing a book that has, that I know of, all of the documents that pertain to Samuel, and I find nothing thatleads me anywhere.
Best of luck.
