About Lydia Huckstep


Exact site unknown. Find A Grave Memorial# 34787810

Named as Lydia in the will of her second husband, Timothy Hatherly, dated Sept 1664.

Many LDS Ancestral Files seem to have her as Lydia Bourne, daughter of Thomas and Elizabeth. No hint of a standard source seems to exist. This is certainly incorrect because Lydia was born in about the same year as her alleged father Thomas Bourne.
