Col. Robert Wynne of Charles City Co. VA

  of 1729

I have just returned from a research trip to Salt Lake City where I have made some great progress on my Wynne line. Col. Robert Wynne, who died in 1678 and left a will recorded in the P.C.C. because he had property in England, was baptized in 1622 at St. Dunston's in Canterbury, England. I haven't unpacked all my papers yet, so I don't have the exact date. His parents were Peter Wynne and Margaret Coppin of St. Margaret's Parish in Canterbury, Kent, but they were married at St. Martin's on 12 Aug 1620. This was recorded in Canterbury Marriage Licenses, Second Series, 1619--1660. Her father was William Coppin, bondsman. I have found his will, his parents, his mother's papers, his grandmothers, etc., so much it made my head spin. Peter Wynne was listed as a free man of Canterbury, as was his father, Robert Wynne. I couldn't go any further back on the Wynnes, but the Coppins opened up when I found an old 1800 book on the Coppin family, which led me to his grandparetns, the Dennes. When you have parishes given, it's much easier to document the records. I'll be glad to share when I get my records together.
