      Biography

      Notes for Francis Thorne: historical info incudes Francis SPECULATIVE LINCOLNSHIRE TIES In Gunby, Candleshoe, Lincolnshire, England there was a family named THORNE.

      This family was resident here for at least 4 generations (which is as far as the records permit).

      They were there at the same time as the Marbury's were in Alford. .

      GENTLEMAN JOHN THORNE OF GUNBY, CANDLESHOE, LINCOLNSHIRE. ENGLAND: . John Thorne (Gentleman) born 1562-1582 buried 12 June 1621. John was married to Constance, buried 2 Sep 1617.

      Their children were:.

      1.Cavendish Thorne baptized 25 July 1610 buried 10 June 1611
      2.John Thorne baptized 3 July 1614 no further record
      3.William Thorne baptized 31 July 1617 no further record
      4.Susannah Thorne baptized 4 October 1608 no further record .

      As both parents were deceased by 1621, they would have been placed with friends or relatives, presumably in the area. .

      Gentleman John Thorne's father was: FRANCIS THORNE; he was buried in Gunby on 7 October 1601 .

      Gentleman John Thorne's mother was: JANE CAVENDISH; she was buried in Gunby on 3 September 1608 . Francis Thorne had brothers named Richard and Nicholas; their parent's names are unknown and each of the 2 brothers had offspring!! .

      I have a feeling that this is our William Thorne, be forewarned that there is no clear evidence linking them to us, but the odds look fairly good. .

      The John Thorne listed above may well be the John Thorne, who left his small estate to Ann Pallgrave.

      Ann had come to Boston with her stepfather John Youngs.

      Youngs led a party to New Southold on Long Island and ONE of his colonists was Ensign JOHN BOOTH.

      Southold is in adjacent Suffolk county to Lincolnshire. .

      Further Long Island Genealogies speculate that the Francis Thorne, who was in Rye for a short time and went back to Greenwich, Connecticut may well have been another son that went unrecorded of our William Thorne, the Immigrant.

      This Francis Thorne died in Greenwich, Connecticut 22 Dec 1690, after having lived in both Massachusetts and Rye, Westchester County, NY.

      He too, had a flair for religious controversy but he was pro-infant baptism. .

      Susannah Booth Thorne's exact parentage is unknown.

      There was an Ensign John Booth who came with Reverend John Youngs to New Southold on Long Island.

      He resided on Shelter Island.

      Youngs was a militant puritan with strong anti Quaker feelings.

      In more than one instance Booth sided with the Quakers against Youngs.

      Given this bent towards religious tolerance and given the fact the Reverend Youngs group was from Southold in Suffolk County, England (next to Lincolnshire) we have some circumstantial evidence tying the Booths and Thornes to the same general area.

      There was a very large and very ancient Booth family in Great Grimsby an old seaport and military site at the mouth of the river Humber, Lincolnshire.

      Travelling inland from Grimsby, not far from the Humber River lies the City of THORNE.

      Thorne is located in South Yorkshire and is less than 35 miles from Grimsby and is less than 60 miles from where Gunby was formerly situated.

      Further it's only about 80 miles south towards London to Southold (John Youngs and John Booth) .

      Needless to say, I feel Ensign John Booth and our Susannah Booth were closely related. .

      In the City of Thorne there are numerous Thorne place names but MORE interesting is the widespread occurrence of the names PURDY and BIRDSALL.

      These were all families that early on under Charles I had strong Anabaptist leanings.

      The Thorne, Birdsalls and Purdys were largely Quaker families in the New York Colony.

      These 3 families had numerous inter marriages and I am descended from all 3 of them. .

      Gary Wayne Williams of Indiana, a Thorne/Booth descendant, gives Susannah's father as Nicholas Booth, without documentation.
