I am related to Lydia Predmore/Prigmore, etc. through her father Benjamin, mother-Anne
Higgins-ie Richard Higgins of Eastham, MA,
member of Plymouth Colony, who came to America, perhaps from Leiden, Holland, where he had gone for religious refuge...around 1636.
Benjamin and Anne had Lydia who married John Covenhoven, ie Van Kouwenhoven, Conover/ Crownover. Lydia had a son who went to TN, ie. Joseph Covenhoven..for sure.
John, her husband, died in VA, left a will.
Lydia proceeded to SC with another son, Benjamin. Benjamin and Joseph changed their name to Crownover about 1800. Benjamin is my 3rd great grandfather. He married Rachel Jasper. They eventually ended up in Turkey Creek Settlement, St. Clair Co., IL.
I have had a copy of an old document that said the same thing as one of the other people on this forum--the Predmores, etc. were from Dorsetshire, did have a Coat of Arms, did come from Holland where they sought religious freedom--but their children were taking up the ways of the Dutch, so they migrated to Massachusetts Bay Colony. I do not have dates, but this document was dated 1808. The brothers included Theodore, Benjamin and one other--the name escapes me at present.
I would love to correspond with anyone who has any other information on this family. I have alot of information on Richard Higgins, father of Anne, if anyone needs it.
