I am researching the Hotham Family from Aroostook County, Maine.The earliest record I have is of George Hotham who moved to Blaine, Maine in 1848 ("History of Aroostook" pg. 220).On the 1850 Census he is listed with his wife, Betsey, and children: Elizabeth, 17, Thomas, 14, John, 11, and George, 8.George, Sr. and Betsey were both born in England.The 4 children were born in New Brunswick.
I found in Kent, Carleton, New Brunswick a recorded baptism of William and Martha Hotham, September 11, 1826.Parents were listed as George and Elizabeth of Kent. Father's occupation was farming.
I haven't had any luck as of yet getting more information from their stay in New Brunswick or Elizabeth/Betsey's maiden name.
