PERKINS of Ipswich, Massachusetts

Fellow genealogy blogger Heather Wilkinson Rojo posted about her Perkins ancestors; it so happens that this is just one of several lines on which we connect.

This prompted me to write about my own Perkins lineage.

My (and Heather's) original PERKINS immigrant ancestor was John PERKINS (1583-1654), son of Henry PERKINS and Elizabeth SAWBRIDGE and grandson of Thomas PERKINS and Alice KEBBLE. John's cousin Isaac PERKINS II, also a grandson of Thomas and Alice by their son Isaac I, settled in Hampton, New Hampshire, and I'll do a separate post on that line.

John and his wife Judith GATER married in Hillmorton, Warwickshire, England, on 9 Oct 1608.



I descend from John and Judith through 3 of their children: John II, Elizabeth, and Mary. Mary would marry Thomas BRADBURY, and be convicted of witchcraft during the Salem Witch Trials. Somehow, she escaped the gallows, and died of natural causes in 1700.
