Title: Nash Family Ancestry
Post by: sbward on February 26, 2008, 11:42:29 PM
Looking for descendants of the Nash family which began with Thomas Nash of Bewdley, England who came to America in 1637...

In a book written in 1853 by The Rev. Sylvester Nash, details are provided on Thomas (1589-1658) and Margery BAKER (1590-1655) NASH and their descendants, some of which follows:

Thomas NASH, progenitor of the Connecticut Nash line, arrived in Boston in July, 1637, on the ship "Hector". The Rev. John Davenport and his flock were the primary occupants of the ship [many of whom were merchants of wealth and standing at home], and the company sailed on to Quinipiac [where they bought land from the Indians and founded New Haven, CT] in March 1638.  Thomas NASH came from Bewdley, Worcestershire, England and Margery BAKER of Hartfordshire, England was the daughter of Lord Nicholas BAKER (1568-1632) and Mary HODGETT (1569-?).
