Project Intent

In June of 1929 Frank B. Wildman married Elizabeth Lee Bean. This project investigates each of their immigrant ancestors. Others who are not descendants of the couple may also benefit from using this list to find immigrant ancestors.

Have we (Wildman/Beans) ever wondered?

... which nationalities are represented by the immigrant ancestors in out family??


~• at first glance ( and not being thorough )

41 Families are English
31 and Welsh ..INDEED! our line goes back to a King of Wales: Gruffydd ap Cynan (1055-1137)
( for notable ancestors through the ages see: NOTABLE ANCESTORS PROJECT
~• a preliminary incomplete count: 12 are German
5 are Irish
4 are Polish
2 are Swiss
3 or more are Dutch through New Netherland

Where you see a ☆, it's to serve as a reminder that that person was living on one of the original PA grants as shown on the 1687 map of Thomas Holme
Where you see a external/twitter_bird_small.gif, it's to show an early Quaker family in the colony of Pennsylvania.

Looking back earlier in European ancestry: Here is a related project:Remarkable and Random Bean Ancestors

It should be remembered too that intermingling of lines happened frequently. See this document that addresses the subject.

• Frank Wildman & Elizabeth (Bean)

Richard Anders Rogers & Mary Rogers (Bean)

Surnames of Immigrants - Wildman/Bean Line

(anything in blue is hyperlinked to the immigrant ancestor)

~• In the Bean Line, it is remarkable that of all these 100 or so immigrants came to either Pennsylvania/Delaware or New Jersey •~
~• with just a few exceptions: one being: Joanna Williams, whose ancestors evidently came to New England •~
~• Richard Newberry and his wife, who may have come first to Massachusetts Bay Colony from England •~


There are quite a few Cycles in these generations of the Beans and Wildmans.

Bean quirks

  1. HUNTER tangle: MMvB → Phoebe Roberts Archbold (Wildman) my mother → Elizabeth Lee (Bean) Wildman her mother → Sarah Bean (Hunter) her mother → P. Frank Hunter her father → Rebecca Ann Hunter (Pechin) his mother → George Pechin her father → Rebecca Pechin (Hunter) his mother → Hannah Maris her mother ~• See how the Hunter surname weaves in out of this line? •~
  2. WOODWARD : Robert Woodward fathered an additional branch that became New England Planters in Nova Scotia... a line that was associated with Dr. John van Beuren of Berwick by virtue of Dr. JohnvB being a doctor to the FOSTER family.

ª Both Maris and Walton descendants went on to lead the Hicksite Quaker George School of the Newtown/Middletown area.


looking at two individuals from quite distant branches of this tree: Rachel Shaw Black (Wells) & Jonathan Wildman: Each had Martin Wildman and Ann Ward as direct ancestors < This is just one of many examples of just how tightly knit the Quaker Wildman community was in the Delaware Valley

  • *This also happens with the couple Henry Baker & Margaret Hardman.
    • * and the PAXSON brothers

a Must Read is Stephen Hopkins, "Mayflower" Passenger , our direct Wildman ancestor. He's the father of Constance (Hopkins) Snow, "Mayflower" Passenger , below.

  1. the top part of the tree is all English (from Wildman down to Headley. Rachel (1807-1835 Stradlng's father's side is of all English ancestry.
  2. look to related projects {in the column at right} .. resource lists are available
  3. a great resource: Jane Watson Brey is a Wildman descendant who wrote extensively on the subject of Wildmans and other Quaker surnames
