Ancient "traditional" history of Paddock

John (Jean) Paddock Blacksmith (1550 - abt. 1576) John Paddock (also spelled Jean Paddoc) was the son of Paul and Francoise (Traillour) Paddoc. He was baptized on 19 July 1550, at Le Cateau, Nord, France. He lived at Stephenstown, Balrothery Parish, County Dublin, and he died at Tullygovan, near Killany, Ardee, County Louth, Ireland, on 3 April 1603 (as stated in his mother's Will). By occupation he made his living as a blacksmith. Paddock fled to Ireland for religious and political freedom in 1580, in which year he married Jeannette Jennin (also called Jane Jennings) on 12 August in Ireland (please see Jennin family history). She was the daughter of Francois and Louise (Moron) Jennin of Croisilles, Pas de Calais, France. Jeanette's maternal grandfather was Jean Moron of Bavay, Nord, France. She came to Ireland in 1569-1570 with her uncle Jean Jennin. At Tullygovan, County Louth, Paddock bought land from Nicholas and Alice Ball, "...unto John Paddock, of Stevenstown, Co. Dublin... ." Also a widow, Magaret Ball, sold land located at Killany, to Paddock on 9 October 1598. Nicholas Ball's daughter, Jane, married John Jennings. John was the son of Jean Gennynges (this Jennings was the brother of Francois Jennin) and Marie de Montz. Jean and Marie emigrated to London in 1560, and by 1569 had gone to Stephenstown, Ireland. Jeannette (Jennin) is mentioned in her father's Will, dated 13 November 1576. An abstract of Jean Jennin's Will reads: "...my brother Jean Jeannin died in Ireland 2 September 1575 leaving a wife Marie du Montz and a son Jean with his wife Francoise Gladdin and children Guillaume and Marie, 20 livres...my daughter Jeannette Jean- ning in Ireland, and my son Jean Jeanning." Jeannette (Jennin) Paddoc filed a Will at Killany, dated 15 May 1607. The Will has her name as, "Jane Paddock, widow of John Paddock." An abstract of her Will reads: "...being in pfyt memorie The Inwarie of the goods of the said Jane Paddock, widow of John Paddock, deceased, late of Killany, is tenn cowes and a heifer and a cow to be received from my sonne in law, Thomas Wheeler, of Kilany, who married my daughter Mary Paddock, and the helfe of one browne cow that was vallued to twelve shillings ster: also a black horse and a gray mare vallued to five pounds ster: one aker of sowne land with corne vallued to fortie pounds ster: I leive to my son Robert Paddock the blacksmith-shop, one cow, five yardes of broad cloathes and to him my movable personalty and to his wife, Mary Pad- dock, born Ball my blake cloak...debts due to me by my son Henry Paddock some little money that I can not call to mynd but I leave it to his own dis- cretion. Residue of all my moveables whatsoever belonging to me: Ex- cepted w't I have withing written, to my two sons, Robert and Henry Paddock, datted at Killany this psent day. . . in psense of Moses Wheeler and William Hawley. The iventory valued at 18.7.6."

CAUTION--CAUTION--CAUTION

The ancient Padoc genealogy can not be proved or disproved, for the records from which the material was gathered from has been all destroyed by wars or fire. The compiler agrees with Robert J. Curfman (author of The Paddock Genealogy, from which the bulk of this history is taken from), who wrote in his book, "Some of the documents seem almost too good to be true, considering the amount of data in them." Curfman also points out that French researchers had a bad reputation for forging genealogies in the late 1800s, but he points out that this would have been risky, for in 1910 the documents existed to check for the facts if one doubted the source.1 I consider the following to be tradition and treat it as such. The Paddock genealogy is said to have been done by none other then the great French forger Charles Gustave Marie Anjou, who produced many false genealogies. Curfman does state, however, that he finds no reason to doubt the Irish connection. One circumstantial piece of evidence was found in the old Gaius Paddock mansion where an heirloom was found of a wooden weaving-needle. On the needle was the date 1588 and an inscription that the needle came from Ireland to the New World.
