|Munroe Family (Chart 1 of 2)|
The Munroe saga in America began with my Scots eighth great-grandfather
William “The Immigrant” Munroe, who arrived in 1652 as a prisoner of war, sold by Cromwell to the planters in America. After working off his passage, he settled in what would later become Lexington, Massachusetts, outlived two wives, widowed a third, and fathered a numerous and distinguished progeny. Including us.
In the Hillsborough Center Cemetery, in Hillsborough Center, New Hampshire, lie a number of the descendants of William and 8GGM Mary Ball Munroe through William’s 12th child (of 14) Joseph (“Corporal Joe”) Munroe. I may not yet have found them all, but these two charts put into context the ones I’ve identified. In this chart, our direct line appears in VIOLET.
|For further information on these people, see their entries in the People index, linked at the bottom of each page.|
This chart (Family Chart 1) shows the connections
among our nearest kin here, the ones who come through William Munroe’s
great-granddaughter, our 5GGM, Hepzibah Munroe and her husband
Oliver (II) Wheeler. Chart 2 focuses on Doctor
Joseph Munroe and Thaddeus Munroe, two first cousins of
Hepzibah who also took part in the family’s colonization of Hillsborough, around the time of the American Revolution. People shown
in GRAY are buried elsewhere
(than Hillsborough--as far as I know, to date) and appear here for
the sake of context. And great stories.
Our 4GGF Oliver Wheeler III married Hannah Ashby and continued their story in Salem, Massachusetts.
