Cole-Marriner Immigrant Ancestors


We are a nation of immigrants. Most of us descend from others who came to this land whether by their own volition or against their will. With this in mind, I will be documenting all the known immigrant ancestors for both my family and my spouse’s family. This is fifth installment of this series.


Finally, I have come to the last line of my family, my mother’s maternal family, the ColeMarriner line.

The three most recent immigrant ancestors for this line just happen to be my most recent immigrant ancestors overall: John Manley, 3rd great-grandfather, born May 1841 in England, and his wife Margaret (surname unknown), 3rd great-grandmother, born Feb 1848 in Canada; and George Moore, 4th great-grandfather, born about 1811 in Scotland.

The next immigrant ancestor in this line is Henry Delatush, Sr., 7th great-grandfather, born in 1710 in La Touche, France.

We must skip a generation to find my next known immigrant ancestors for this line: William Layton, 9th great-grandfather, born 1630 in Cranfield, Bedfordshire, England, and his wife Violet Blackman, 9th great-grandmother, born in England.  Also in this generation is Evert Janssen Van Wicklen, 9th great-grandfather, born 17 Jun 1660 in Wijckel, Friesland, Netherlands. His father, Jentie Jeppes Van Wicklen, 10th great-grandfather, born 1630 in Friesland, Netherlands, also immigrated to the New World.

Other multi-generational  immigrants are Gabriel Woodmansee, 9th great-grandfather, born 1640 in Yorkshire, England, and his parents Robert Woodmansee, 10th great-grandfather, born about 1595 in Yorkshire, England, and his wife Margaret Clement, 10th great-grandmother, born 1600 in England.

Joining these 10th generation known immigrant ancestors are Nathaniel Rawlins, 10th great-grandfather, born 1623 in Weymouth, Dorset, England; Annetje Pieterse Praa, 10th great-grandmother, born 4 Feb 1652 in Leiden, Zuid-Holland, Netherlands; and Gerardina de Sille, 10th great-grandmother, born 10 Feb 1642 in Maastricht, Limburg, Netherlands.

Immigrant ancestor John Chamberlin, 10th great-grandfather, born 1633 in Wyndham, Norfolk, England, came to the colonies with his parents Henry Chamberlain, 11th great-grandfather, born 1596 in Wyndham, Norfolk, England, and his wife Jane (surname unknown), 11th great-grandmother, born 1598 in Norfolk, England.

Finally, rounding out my known immigrant ancestors on my mother’s maternal side are Richard Silvester, 11th great-grandfather, born 1608 in Somerton, Somerset, England, and his wife Naomi Torrey, 11th great-grandmother, born 10 Mar 1614 in Keynsham, Somerset, England.
