Mary Paine m. John Tripp 1640 RI
I have Mary's ancestors, going back in time, as:
1. Anthony Paine ca. 1585 m. Alice Potter
2. Ralph Paine ca. 1555m. Dorothy Edward
3. Anthony Paine ca. 1535 m. Martha Castell
4. William Payne ca. 1510 m. Margery Ash
5. Edmund Payne ca. 1484 m. Elizabeth Walton
6. THomas <--Robert<--Thomas <-- ?
--Can't prove that Anthony 1585 is the son of Ralph (Anthony's father is variously shown as Ralph, Edward, John, James)BUT THERE ARE NO SOURCES for any of it that I can find.
--Even if Ralph is the right father for Anthony 1585, I can't establish that he is the son of Anthony 1535
--Can't get any further back than Thomas Payne ca. 1300, and can't find sources for anyone in the line.
--can't connect Hugh (Hugues) de Payen with any of these people.
Surely someone has the correct line back from Mary, with some sources to corroborate it.
Appreciate any help you can provide.
