Edward Hilton Genealogy
Record modified: 2010-09-21
This is my direct ancestor 11 generations back.
Born: 1626-00-00 Dover, New Hampshire USA
Died: 1699-04-28 Exeter, New Hampshire USA
1. Ann Dudley
Children of Edward Hilton and Ann Dudley:
RootsWeb has an Edward Hilton born abt 1617 Northwich England died 1669-04 Dover NH, but no wife or children. He is son of Edward Hilton b 1596-06-09 Northwich England d 1669 Dover NH; and Ann Dudley.
I keep finding records that indicate this Edward was born 1596-06-09 died 1669 and came to America with his brother William in 1623 (William having arrived in 1621, then gone back to get brother Edward).
from Hilton mail-list:
Edward HILTON came from England and removed to New Hampshire and Maine.
His brother William, had come to Plymouth in 1621 on the FORTUNE. He also moved to New Hampshire.
Ed's first wife's maiden name is unknown, but the second is SHAPLEIGH.
Edward and the first wife's son, Edward, was born 1626 in Dover, NH.
He married Ann DUDLEY, directly descended from Governor DUDLEY and Governor WINTHROP, both Governors of Mass.
Ed died Apr 28, 1699.
Their son, Ensign Joseph, was born 1681 and died 1765.
He married first Hannah JOSE, then Mrs. Rebecca (ATKINSON) ADAMS.
Joe's and Rebecca's son, Theodore Atkinson, was born in Exeter NH, 1721. He married Mary SINCLAIR. He died 1765.
Now I think it is: This Edward was born 1626 Dover NH?, and married Ann Dudley who was b abt 1630. This Edward is son of another Edward, who arrived abt 1623 (as above).
