WATKINS I am seeking WATKINS researchers in Anne Arundel, Caroline and Dorchester counties. Have found WATKINS in Dorchester Co. as early as 1668, but do not know where they came from before they arrived there. Several of the names are similar to those in Anne Arundel Co., and wondered if maybe they crossed the bay from Anne Arundel Co., since the majority of WATKINS seemed to have been in that area. Those found from 1668-1790 were CORNELIUS WATKINS(ON), JOHN WATKINS, DR. THOMAS WATKINS, WILLIAM WATKINS, and STEPHEN WATKINS. Does anyone know of WATKINS leaving Anne Arundel and settling in Dorchester, and then Caroline Co.? Will appreciate any information on WATKINS. Please Contact Adina Dyer

DURAND I am searching for information on William DURAND. He was one of the Puritan founders of Providence and eventually became Secretary of State. I can trace him as coming from Boston, Massachusetts. He joined the Puritan Church there in 1644 and became a minister. He was a member of Boston's First Church. Late in the 1640s, he volunteered to teach the Puritan gospel in Isle of Wight County, VA. He moved there with his wife and children and preached there for several years. After Governor Berkeley issued his religious edict, Durand fled Virginia. He left with his wife and five children and settled along the Severn River in Maryland. There he started a new settlement called Providence. The rest is Maryland history. I am trying to find out when William Durand died and where he is buried. I am also looking for the names of his wife and five children. Many thanks, Debbie Barclift
