I am a descendant of Thomas through Samuel and his daughter Dorothy (Leavitt). Also I have a less well documented line through Anne that married Simon Bradstreet. Would love to share info with anybody doing these lines.

Greetings from Southport, North Carolina, USA.

I descend Gov. Thomas Dudley by his son, Exeter, New Hampshire, Rev. Samuel Dudley by his first wife Mary Winthrop (mother of Ann Dudley who wed Edw. Hilton, Sr., of Exeter), and third wife Mrs. Elizabeth Smith Gilman.

And via Dudley Hilton's wife Mercy Hall, daughter of Judge Kinsley Hall's wife Elizabeth Dudley, daughter of Rev. Samuel Dudley's third wife, aforesaid Mrs. Elizabeth Smith Dudley. Mrs. Mercy Hall Hilton's daughter Elizabeth Hilton wed Christopher Robinson of Exeter, who's daughter Elizabeth Robinson wed Rochester, N.H., legislator and inn keeper, one-armed Maj. Barnabas Palmer, Sr., who's daughter Margaret Palmer wed Dover, N.H., legislator LtCol David Copp, Sr., who's son, Portsmouth, N.H., lawyer and gambler, David Copp, Jr., wed 15 years old, Mary "Polly" Watson, the daughter of Dover (here I'm not sure of the lineage) Pvt. George Watson, Sr., and Elizabeth Gerrish.

If you would like to take over as Admin for this group, just let me know. If it shows only one member, that would be me, in this case if you would like to make your own group for this surname, I can delete this one and add my information to yours. Just let me know.
