Welcome to my notes page! I expect these notes will become (1) categorized
resources (links to relevant websites), and/or (2) copyright credits wherein we
have obtained permission to use someone's material on our website.
Francis Barnard came from England to New England around 1640. Here are
links related to the types of ships involved at that time, their passenger lists,
and so on.
- Kalmar Nyckel -- The Tall Ship of Delaware - Working replica of the ship which brought settlers from Sweden to Delaware in 1638, and is thus similar to the one bringing our Barnard patriarch. Kalmar Nyckel is highly significant in her own right, and this website about her modern-day replica is quite informative.
Don Seltzer has offered to provide one or more of his photos of the replica ship under sail, for us to use.
- Isle of Wight Ships - (Click on the logo for the remainder of this site) The owner has granted me permission to use any ship illustrations from this site. The site focuses on Isle of Wight's part in supplying merchants, tradesmen, supplies, etc., to the original settlement of Jamestown. The site is of Francis Barnard interest for the illustration of a ship typical of the time, and the general information from source documents regarding sailings to the New World.
- Ship, John of London - This ship sailed from Yorkshire to Boston 1638. The ship is useful for its diagrams of typical ships, including Mayflower. However, it might be highly significant in its reference to the armament certificate issued 15 July 1629 for Mary and John of London. We might therefore have information on the builder of that ship carrying Elder John Strong, Rev. Wareham, and company, whose colony Francis Barnard joined 5-10 years later.
- Voyage of the Hector - Another page of the same website. This is an extract of an 1880 transcribed text. The full text is given at a link at the bottom of that web page. There may be information here which we can use as well, as background material.
- We are the Strong Family Association of America
Incorporated 1975 - We are a dynamic international family organization. Our main objective is to promote recognition of Strong Family heritage. We welcome all that are interested in the Strong Family.
- Mary and John Clearinghouse - Probably the most authoritative research as to who actually sailed on the ship Mary and John. Francis Barnard descendants intermarried with these families, and thus many of us are Mary and John descendants as well.
- Griswold Family Association - The Griswold Family Association was founded in 1930, to collect, preserve, and disseminate genealogical and historic facts relating to the origin and growth of the Griswold family in America. The GFA holds Annual Reunions, and sponsors tours of interest to the members
- The Pinney Surname Resource - Listed here are a number of links to records of individual Pinneys in personal genealogy web pages and other records. Some of the following sites contain very little information. They have been categorized by the number of individuals at a site that bear the Pinney name followed by the general geography of the Pinneys that are mentioned.
- Historic Deerfield -
- Deerfield Descendants - This site seems to link back in to the Historic Deerfield site. There is now an annual reunion of Deerfield Descendants.
In searching for resources, I serendiptiously found information relevant
to one of our other genealogy websites,
Albemarle to Callaway. I'm placing
the links here in my notes until we get them incorporated in the other site.
- The Maxey Family Homepage - by Scott T Jones. Includes an outline descendancy, and ordering instructions for The Maxeys of Virginia: A Genealogical History of the Descendants of Edward and Susannah Maxey, Third Edition, 1,085 pp., index, maps, Baltimore, Maryland: Gateway Press, Inc., 2000. by Edythe Maxey Clark
- Isle of Wight Ships - (Click on the logo for the remainder of this site) The owner has granted me permission to use any ship illustrations from this site. The site focuses on Isle of Wight's part in supplying merchants, tradesmen, supplies, etc., to the original settlement of Jamestown.
- Godspeed - Outstanding painting of the three ships who established Jamestown, with a description of the voyage.
