About William Knight, Sr.

\n
\n
\n

Most trees list Jane Langburne as the wife of William Knight and mother of Eleanor. Others (such as the third one below) list Elizabeth Carter as this William's wife, and show Jane Langburne as his mother, but the dates don't seem very likely in those.

It looks like that third one is for a son of William Knight and Jane Langburne.....named William of course. But that page may end up with the wrong Eleanor Knight marrying John Bailey...or that could be the right one...Oh man, I think that is the right one. But there's something wrong with the birthdates either way. The current dates show Jane Langburne being 10 years old when her son William was born.

-------------------- Fathered (with Elizabeth Wild) Philip in 1568, William in 1568 and Nicholas in 1570. Child with Jane Langburne was Elizabeth Eleanor Knight in 1587.

\n

READ THE WILL OF WILLIAM. He mentions his kinsman Thomas (probably a first cousin), his wife Elizabeth, and his sons William and Nicholas. No Phillip. The will was PROVED in April of 1569/1570. That would be after his death. I have seen mention of Elizabeth dying a couple months later. The William that married Jean Langburne about 1587 was a DIFFERENT William (probably a relative). ALSO Phillip may have come from a relative, but not this William. The dates don't make sense because these folks are being grouped into one family. But, they are most likely all related. posted by Don Knights.

\n

Son William, married Elizabeth Carter and fathered Richard (d. 6 yrs), Thomasine, William, John and Richard. Sons John and Richard were the well documented "Tailors" that resettled in Newbury, Massachusetts, USA.
