Christopher Reynolds land… IOW

with 3 comments

Another piece of the puzzle for early Isle of Wight.  I have numerous other patents in the works…

I began this map several years ago by simply throwing as many patents as I could onto the map and trying to make some sense of it all.  As my methods have improved, I am back-tracking now to further refine the folks.  I grab whatever pertinent clues I can find and attempt to put them together.  If you can add or detract please comment…

Christopher Reynolds 1636 patent can be found wedged between the 1679 and 1681 patents of his descendants. I think this is about as accurate as you can get.  However, as you see in my notes there were other land deals which I have not worked out.  I hope to roll Giles Driver, Ambrose Bennett and others into the mix.

The main map is in chaos right now as I make additions and revisions… so what else is new in genealogy… right?

  1. Mr Anderson, I just stumbled upon your awesome website. What an amazing amount of research! I almost jumped out of my chair when I saw this Christopher Reynolds page with the location of his land and that of his son-in-law Richard Jordan right beside it. I am descended from Richard and Elizabeth, who was a daughter of Christopher. Pardon me if this is an ignorant question, but is there a way I could get a paper copy of this page (in readable form)? I’m especially interested in the 1636 map. Thanks very much.

    • Hi Rene
      I’m afraid you will have to use your own wits to figure out how to print this…
      I only considered how to do this per “blowing it up” to read it. Perhaps you can enlarge it and then move around the map and use “print page”?
      Then paste the pieces onto a poster board. Alas, I never intended this to be printed unless it was a large wall display.

      • OK, I’ll play around with it. Thanks so much–and, again, this is wonderful work that you have done!
