Timelines: The Decade of the 1650s

This decade is a short one - two surnames. Of course one of those is 11 generations! The timeline exercise continues to be an interesting one. I have uncovered "new" information on several families that will be added to the RootsMagic software program. I'm postponing the inclusion of a few timelines until I can investigate the families further. I'll add those at the end with my families that don't "stretch back across the pond."

(In my files, I have numerous articles naming John & Francis Peabody as father & son. In the article on 'Francis Peabody' in The Great Migration, Anderson states there are no records linking the two men. John did have a son named Francis, however. John arrived in 1636 & settled in the towns of Plymouth, Duxbury & Bridgewater in Plymouth Colony. Francis arrived in 1635 & settled in Massachusetts Bay, residing in Hampton [NH], Ipswich & Topsfield. All are far north of the Plymouth settlements. Family members tended to settle near one another. John & Francis weren't even close by colonial standards! Based on this information, I have adjusted my Peabody timeline to exclude John.)

GSMC June Program, Mini-time Lines

On June 14, the Genealogical Society of Marion Co. will have Steven Barnett of the Irvington Historical Society presenting a program on the history of the Irvington neighborhood on the far eastside of Indianapolis. The program will be held at the Irvington Branch Public Library from 1:00-3:00 P.M.

Up next on the blog will be a series of mini-time lines for my immigrant families. Hopefully these will help folks put together their own. The primary dates will be arrival, major migrations and death.

I'm going to attempt to break the time lines into roughly 20 year blocks:
1620-1639 arrivals           1700-1719 arrivals       1780-1799 arrivals
1640-1659 arrivals           1720-1739 arrivals       1800 and after arrivals
1660-1679 arrivals           1740-1759 arrivals
1680-199 arrivals             1760-1779 arrivals

There may be some tweaking if the Revolutionary War years are affected or if there are only a couple of families arriving during a given time block. The 1800s get their own time block since all but 5-6 of my families were here by 1852/3.

What about the families with shaky or unknown arrival dates? I'll deal with those at the end.
