Regarding the ancestry of "John Ladd the Immigrant"said died 1680 in Virginia.
Most of the many Ladd researchers believe that he was John Ladd bap. 7 Aug 1636 Kent, the son of Nicholas Ladd and Ellen Pemble..
What I have discovered from the information in the Ladd Wills of Kent, is that he cannot be the son of Nicholas Ladd and Ellen Pemble.
Firstly the Nicholas Ladd with the Will in 1699 is not the Nicholas who married Ellen Pemble.
The correct Will for Nicholas Ladd with wife Ellen Pemble was written on 29 Aug 1682 probate on 10 May 1685.
Nicholas was buried in Hawkinge 15 Apr 1685 yeoman from Poulton. He names his wife as Ellen, and children as - Nicholas, Thomas and John and daughters Judeth wife of George Tayler, and Ellen wife of William Badcock. He gives his son John all his stock and crop on the farm, and names him as the sole Executor.
His son John Ladd lived in Standen, Hawkinge, and left a Will proved in 1703 wherein he mentions his brothers Nicholas and Thomas and his sister Ellen wife of William Badcock.
Also "John the Immigrant" cannot be the son of Nicholas Ladd of Swingfield with the Will proven in 1699. His son John was still alive and living in Kent as he names his sons John and Benjamin as Executors of his Will.
John died in 1714 in Kent also leaving a Will.
