Today we’ve updated Early New England Families, 1641-1700adding one new sketch. This new sketch features George Parkhurst and his family. George lived in Watertown and Boston before returning to England, although some of his family members ultimately remained in New England.

The Early New England Families, 1641-1700 study project is led by Alicia Crane Williams. This project highlights heads of families mentioned in Torrey’s New England Marriages to 1700, focusing on individuals who immigrated from 1641 through 1700, grouped by year of marriage.

Interested researchers should also read Alicia’s recent Vita Brevis post “Never a dull moment” discussing her research process for this sketch.

We’d like to thank Sam Sturgis for his help adding this sketch to our database.
