About John Tucker, Sr.


From Working Gedcom of Melissa Thompson Alexander

Linda Reno says she died after 1696 and married first, William Tucker, Jr. and 2nd Thomas Daynes. . Linda goes on to say that Mary/Marie (Stone) Tucker, relict of William Tucker of Warwick, VA on 24 Jun 1653 made a marriage contract with Thomas Daynes. This contract was recorded in Latin 4 July 1653-4 and in English on 13 Dec 1653 and recorded in Norfolk Co, VA on 15 Apr 1656, In the contract Marie testified that her former husband, William Tucker had left two monor children in her care; John Tucker, a child by Williams former wife and Roger Tucker, which was a child by Marie.

From Re: John Tucker/Rose Allerton Date: February 01, 2001

"Brian: Unfortunately, the information posted on the Allerton forum about John Tucker and Rose Allerton is incorrect.

John Tucker and Isaac Allerton Jr. (1628-1702) were contemporaries and John Tucker died (1671) before any of Isaac Allerton's children had married.

John Tucker's (c1630-1671) wife was Rose Sturman (aft1635-1712) who later married Dr. Thomas Gerrard and John Newton Sr.

John Newton Jr., who became Rose's step-son in 1676, married an Allerton and this appears to be the source of the Tucker/Allerton error which has been widely disseminated".


Not everyone agrees on when John Tucker, Sr. son of William Tucker, Jr. was born. The year 1643 is one possibility, and seems to be more logical.

John Tucker, b. Sept 8, 1626, Westmoreland, VA d. May 5, 1671, Westmoreland, VA

-married to Rose Allerton, b. 1633, England (sic: married Rose Sturman)

-children Robert Tucker, b. 1652/1655, Virginia d. 1702, Charles City, VA

                           William Tucker, b. 1671, Virginia

Read Captain William Tucker's will and tell me how John can be his son. He isn't. He probably is a relation somehow, but not a son. While not an excellent source, this gives John as William Tucker's son. However, John is actually Capt. William Tucker's grandson, and son of William Tucker, Jr.
