Re: Origin of Hugh Calkins
Thank you for clarifying this. My family descends from Hugh Calkins and John Coite. Coite arrived in Salem earlier than the Welsh Company, but joined with them in Gloucester and eventually New London CT.
Same story, supposedly the Coites were Welsh, but we cannot find a trace there other than the town and castle of Coitie. Wonder if we should also be looking in England?
Definitely food for thought.
