George Giddings & Jane Lawrence are my 10 times great grandparents and their lines have been researched back into England, connecting to both nobility and royalty.
George Giddings was born on 24 September 1609 in Clapham, Bedfordshire, England, the son of John Gidding and Joan Purrier. Jane Lawrence was born on 18 December 1614 in St. Albans, Hertfordshire, England, the daughter of Thomas Lawrence an Joan Antrobus. George and Jane married on 20 february 1633 in St. Albans.
The Giddings and Lawrence families were well off economically compared to many who immigrated to the colonies. They are found on the passenger list of The Planter, which sailed to New England in 1635. They family soon settled into their new life in Ipswich, Massachusetts.
My double descent from this couple happens through two of their grandchildren, siblings George and Elizabeth Giddings, children of Lt. John Giddings and Sarah Alcock. Lt. John was the son of George and Jane.
Here is a diagram to follow the descent, but notice that William Tarbox is one generation closer to George and Jane Giddings than is Judith Haskell, his wife:
Since William Tarbox is Generation #5 and Judith is Generation #6, I will omit the generation numbers from the rest of the line down to me:
William Tarbox = Judith Haskell
George Rogers Tarbox = Mary Elizabeth Scripture
Calvin Segee Adams = Nellie F. Tarbox
Charles Edward Adams = Annie Maude Stuart
Vernon Tarbox Adams = Hazel Ethel Coleman
George Michael Sabo = Doris Priscilla Adams
Linda Anne Sabo – me!
If you have been reading my multiple descent posts and some of the names are starting to look familiar, that is because they are all part of my grandfather Vernon Adams’ line.
