Frances Mortimer, Carol’s Ancestral English Grandmother

Mortimer COA

Frances Mortimer was born 1725 in Devon, England .  She married my Scottish ancestral grandfather, John Hunter in c1750. They had six children: Frances, Thomas, Martha, Henry, Robert (my 5xggf) and John Jr.

This particular study I have found many, many documents thanks to belonging to the Augusta County Genealogy Society.  His will is a challenge for me to read, but as a cousin of mine, William Hunter,  says take your time and it will come to you.  He is actually instructing me with learning the language for that time period.

I write often about one of his daughter’s Frances who married Captain Matthew Arbuckle.  The Arbuckle lineage is a very interesting military research.

These are my immigrant ancestors.
