Re: Christopher Tomkins and Bennett Tomkins
What a wonderful gem to own, signed by Jefferson and Madison.
Perhaps by now youknow of the familiy.I imagine that Bennett Tomkins or Tompkins comes from the family of the immigrant, Humphery Tomkins(1510-2 Sep 1673) who married Hannah Bennett (1821-) of York County VA. Hannah's parents were Samuel and Joane Bennett.
I come from this line as well. Their son Samuel Tompkins (1658-1702)married Sarah Trevillion (1670-1704).Her parents were Samuel Trevillion (1632-1673) and Mary Rooksby (1645-) od Yoek Co VA..
I heard from someone else who comes from your Bennet Tompkins.
Perhaps they can help us as you see I have verry little information.Luanne Spence Taylor
