Genealogy Revision

According to the January 2006 issue of "The New England Historical and Genealogical Register", the parentage of Stephan Gates is incorrect as recorded in my file. Research by Edward J. Harrison of the parish records of Hingham, Norfolk and Coney Weston, Suffolk in England, and various English probate records have shed new light on Stephan's parentage.

The new information lists his parents as:
"Eustace Gates, laborer, who was buried at Coney Weston on 26 April 1626. His will, dated 15 March 1625/6, was proved 5 June 1626 in the Archdeaconry Court of Sudbury."
Rose Wright "was baptized at Coney Weston, Suffolk, on 25 February 1566/7, and was buried at Hingham, Norfolk, on 25 July 1635. She married at Coney Weston on 4 March 1592/3."

Anyone holding a copy of my records should make this corection. I'll enter information about Rose's family in a later blog, if anyone is interested.
