LUCAS FAMILY & connection to HINTON

Post by Laura » Tue Oct 13, 2015 4:11 am

I'm interested in corresponding with anyone who has the surname LUCAS in their early family tree. My family is descended from Robert Lucas who emigrated in 1679 from Longbridge Deverill to what is now Pennsylvania, as one of the first British settlers there. The names of his children match those of the Lucases that appear in the Sutton Veny parish records, making us fairly certain that Sutton Veny is where he was actually born.

The first BMDs I was able to obtain from the parish records go back to 1599, with two Lucas men marrying into the Hinton family. Elderton is another name that shows up a bit later. I also have the probate index and Lucas (and of course Hinton) appear with regularity on it. Does anyone have any further information on early Sutton Veny families? I'd love to hear from you.
