The first 3 rectors of Hungar's Parish were;
1) Wm Cotton, the first minister, from it's inception till his death, in 1640.
2) 1642, Nathaniel Eaton was the 2nd minister...he came from Mass, and left to return to England in 1646.
3) Francis Doughty, my ancestor. became the 3rd minister and is mentioned in many local records, ie....court records and, for instance, as mentioned in wills, such as that of Eleanor Empson, in 1661. Francis married Ann Graves Cotton Eaton, who had also been married to Wm Cotton and Nathaniel Eaton, the first 2 rectors. Francis left Hungar's by April 22, 1661 and by 1665 was referred to in Old Rappahannock Co court papers as the Minister of the parishes of Sittingbourn and Farnam. I know nothing of who served Hungars after my ancestor left in 1661, but do know who was there till that date...Cotton, Eaton and Doughty.
I did a quick google and found quite a few online sites with info about the Rev. Thomas...one that said "Rev Thomas Teackle a clergyman of the Church of Eng b 1624 in Gloucestershire Eng came to America in 1656 and settled at Craddock an estate in Accomac County." Have you tried to contact all the people that have posted info online? There seem to be a good many.
I found this one, too, that seemed to have a lot of info on the Rev. Thomas and many other Teackles.
