Re: a property called "Westchester"

Hi Linda:

I did not notice the reference to John Rust and Westchester and the connection to William and Robert Boucher.

As to Westchester in Sussex County, my first thought would be that parts of Worcester Co were in what became DE at one time, until the Mason-Dixon line resolved the disputes. But, Westchester in Worcester is in southern Worcester so this doesn't seem to make sense. It does explain, though, Westchester in Somerset Co, MD as Worcester was carved out of Somerset, so the Westchester in Somerset is likely the one in Worcester.

The Wyatt marriage you refer to is probably that of Hugh Wyatt to Mary (or Maria) Bourchier in the mid 1500s in England. Hugh Wyatt was a g-grandson of Richard Wyatt (b c1435). Sir Thomas the Younger was also a g-grandson of Richard Wyatt, but via different lines. I somehow link back to Sir Thomas the Younger, and then to Richard and so on. There are at least two missing generations. Sir Thomas the Younger had more children than he could count, by his wife and mistress (or mistresses). However, his son, George Thomas was the father of Rev Haute Wyatt, and most Wyatt's seem to get back to him. Haute's line is well documented.

Thomas Wyatt the Elder was the poet. His only son, Thomas the Younger was the renegade.

Unfortuately I have nothing on Robert and William Boucher.
My Wyatt branch was in Worcester Co througout the 1700 and 1800s. My grandfather, Charles came to Philadelphia late 1880s. Do you have Worcester heritage?

Regards,

Harry
