About Dorothy King

Did Dorothy Barker-Hunt also marry Josiah Chapin? Was she a widow already when she married Enoch Hunt? Was she step-mother to Mary King Chapin, and wife to John King of Weymouth in 1652?

Enoch Hunt, the immigrant ancestor, was from Titendon, in the parish of Lee, two miles from Wendover, Buckshire, England.

  • He was an early settler in Rhode Island and was admitted a freeman in Newport in 1638.
  • He was a blacksmith by trade.
  • He removed to Weymouth, Mass., where he was living in 1640.
  • He was a town officer in 1641, and had a case in court in 1641.
  • He died before 1647, in England, when his wife's lands are mentioned in deeds of abutting tracts.
  • Administration was granted to his son Ephraim, November, 18, 1652. The homestead consisted of twenty-two acres in the Plaine at Weymouth, bounded by lands of Richard Sylvester, John Upham, Mr. Gouer, and west and north by the highway and the sea.
  • He married in England, abt 1609, a woman who probably died before he came to New England. He married perhaps at Dorcester, abt 1639, widow Dorothy Barker, who survived him, and married John King of Weymouth, in 1652.

Dorothy Barker was

  • born in 1558 in Titenden Parish, Lee, Buckingham, England.
