Hi Cynthia,

James Winner, ~1650-1725, Sussex Co, NJ, sea captain (Wasp); second wife burned his logs (lame broad!). He was from Thaxted (spl?) England. Was allegedly given a coat of arms with scallops on it; scallops related to his seafaring activities.

Son was John Edward Winner (JEW-I), d 10/14/1748 (b. 1705?), Middletown Twp, Bucks Co (no record of wife). His siblings were, Jacob (d 1745/53), Joseph (d 1735). (Thomas, James, Samuel may also have been his brothers.)

His son (JEW-1) was John Edward Winner (JEW-II), b 6/11/1722 - d 1/28/1791, Lower Makefield Twp, Bucks Co, married Sarah Parker b 2/23/1725-d~7/1790. Their children were: Rachel, Benjamin, Rebecca, David, John Edw Jr, Jacob
Samuel, Moses, Didwill, & Joshua.

Rachael Winner B 10/23/1745-d 1/1809. Married Jacob Watson b 1721 (Quaker Saga). That's all I've got on her.

I'm from JEW-IIs son Samuel's line - Bible I've got was either purchased by him, or his son Samuel Jr.

Several are buried in Richboro, PA and Southhampton (?). I can't remember which town I was in (1975), but we found the 3 early John Edward Winners. The tomb stones are absolutely plain and white; only there initials are on the stones - looks a bit strange... three J E W s all in a row.

Are you totally confused now?

Let me know if you'd like my flow chart & a few pieces of other info.

Happy hunting!
