William HATCHER (1614-1680), son of Thomas, son of William & Magt. Longe HATCHER
William HATCHER never claimed any land for the import of his wife and/or a child, which is what most researcher use to disprove his marriage to Marian Newport, but I can't find any records of his importation record.In fact I can't find any information on William until in Deeds: VA Land Patent Book #1, part 1, pg. 40: 1 June 1636 William HATCHER received a 2200a Henrico Co. , VA patent for land of Elizabeth Warde, widow", 50 for himself and 150 for the importation of three others near to the land of Pearse and Mary Box.Since the three others aren't named, could these be Marian Newport Hatcher and perhaps children (supposed oldest Edward Hatcher was born 29 Dec 1636).
In the SLC Family History library, British film #1,279,418 item 26-30 I found the 27 December 1632 Ogbourne Saint George, Wiltshire, England marriage of immigrants to America Marian NUPORT/NEWPORTE/NEWPORT and William HATCHER.
Although I never found the christening of Marian Newporte, but below I have more information about her Newport family who lived in the parish of Ogbourne Saint George for several generations.
In the records of the larger, nearby parish of Ogbourne Saint George, Wiltshire, England I found the 14 Aug 1614 baptism of the immigrant WILLIAM HATCHER as well as his brother Robert Hatcher's 6 July 1609 in Ogbourne Saint George records listing their father as THOMAS HATCHER... I never found who Thomas married but I believe that William Hatcher's, brother Richard HATCHER on 7 July 1609 married Alice PAINTER in Ogbourne Saint Andrew, Wilshire, England.
I haven't been able to find Thomas' or his brother Richard's baptismal record, but I believe that William's father THOMAS HATCHER's parents were probably WILLIAM HATCHER & MARGARET LONGE who married 1 Nov 1573 in Ogbourne St. Andrew, Wiltshire, England.
I know I need to do a lot more work on the HATCHERS, but I've worked thousands of hours on the Newports with only minor success.
The following is some documentation I have on the Newports with a lot of assumptions on my part.
Richard NEWPORTE/NEWPORT/NUPORT b. abt 1494 Wiltshire, England died bef 1566. This Richard Newporte had at least 2 sons: Walter NEWPORT (aft 1566 nothing else known about Walter) & perhaps my Robert NEWPORT (will 1566 Ogbourne-Saint George) who had at least a dau. Alice and three known sons: John, William, and Geoffrey Newporte.
Robert Newporte (abt 1521-1566) sons are as follows (1) Geoffey Newporte (d. 1578 md 18 Oct 1574 Wilcot Parish, Wiltshire, England to Mary Pryor who married 2nd in 1578 to John Burden). Geoffrey and Mary Pryor Newporte had a son Vincent Newporte and perhaps a son William and an daughter Agnes Newporte. Agnes was married 9 Apr 1592 in Wilcot Parish to James Wicke.
(2) John Newporte md Elizabeth _?_ and had a son Nathan Newporte christened 26 Mar 1594/1595 in Ogbourne St. George. I haven't found anymore on John or his family.
(3) Perhaps my William NEWPORT (will 1605 Ogbourne-SG), who md 1st Marian _?_ who died 1 Jan 1582 Ogbourne SG and 2nd Joan _?_. William and his 2nd wife Joan _?_ had 3 daughters Amy, Mary, and Elizabeth, but I don't have anything on them after Williams 1605 will. Joan _?_ Newport had md 2nd Thomas Potter 25 Aug 1606 Ogbourne SG. Both Joan and Thomas Potter died in 1623.
My William NEWPORT (abt 1545-1605) I believe had at least a son Robert and at least 5 daughters. Daughter Margaret died before the 1605 will, Amy, Mary, and Elizabeth NEWPORT were unmarried at the time of their father's 1605 will which is why I assume they were daughter's of his 2nd marriage to Joan _?_ Newport. Daughter Margaret who died before the 1605 will I assume was a daughter of his 1st wife Marian _?_ Newporte along with Elizabeth Newporte (died 24 Aug 1612 Ogbourne SC) the wife of Edmund Pithouse of nearby Ogbourne St Andrew and mother of at least 4 Pithouse children.
I believe that the Robert NEWPORT (wife unknown) who was probably the Robert who was the son of my supposed William (will 1605 OSG)was the only male NEWPORT having children in Ogbourne-St. George at the time my Marian NEWPORT md 1632
my William HATCHER (son of Thomas HATCHER) before they went to America.
This Robert NEWPORT had at least 2 sons (Joseph Newporte (d. 1631 OSG) and John Newporte (chr. 1621 Ogbourne St. Andrew)and 2 other daughters (Abigail Newporte (chr. 1608 OSG) and Elizabeth Newporte (chr. 1612 OSG), but I don't know when any of them married where they went or anything else. The children could be wrong or incomplete because I couldn't find a christening, marriage, or will for Robert Newporte; therefore, these are only assumptions unless documented with a date.
It bothers me that I can't find Marian Newporte's christening or any other information about her except her marriage to William Hatcher, but the Bishop's transcripts records are incomplete and I was unable to find any complete parish records. Marian could be from any of the other Newportes so mentioned or not, but it seems logical that Marian was named after her grandmother Marian who was the first wife of William Newport (b.abt 1545-d.bef 21 Oct 1605 in Ogbourne St. George, Wiltshire, England)
Is there anyone working on any of these families? I would love to find someone or someplace where I can get information on these NEWPORTS and/or HATCHERS of Wiltshire, English families. Any help would be gratefully appreciated
