Perkins

Genealogy Pages that include Perkins Information

Perkins List Homepage - The most complete global research of the name Perkins that I have found.  Maintained by Sonya Perkins Lynch.

John Carter's Genealogy Homepage - While his ancestry is mainly Durham, his pages includes family lines of many related and as-yet-unrelated Perkins lines, including Mitchel Perkins, husband of Martha Jane Durham.

Phelps Research - Maintained by Dallas Phelps.  Database Includes MANY Perkins which thus far appear to be unrelated to this line.

The Family History of Donald W. Fisher - Last updated September 2000.  Donald's Perkins ancestry is parallel to this research, however Donald has not been actively researching as of late.

Free African Americans of Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Maryland and Delaware - Study of many families including those who were classified as "colored" or "other free" on census and other public records.  Many source references are indicated to aid in substantiation.  Includes Perkins and Durham family listings.

Steve C. Perkins Genealogy Page - So far not connected to this Perkins line.  Ancestry Appears to trace back to Perkins in North Carolina with John Perkins (c1651-c1730) and his father Edward Perkins born 1607, in Hilmorton, Warwickshire, Eng. Died in New Haven, New Haven Col, CT.  It would be interesting to study this line to see if there is somehow a connection.

Bob Juch's Kin  - So far not connected to this Perkins line.  Traces ancestry to William Perkins (born 1673) of New Kent Co., Virginia.  The interesting part of this line is the presence of a descendant named Archelaus Mitchell Perkins, who keeps showing up on my searches for Mitchell Perkins.

The Samuel Perkins Hunters - This ancestry traces back to John Perkins born about 1690 of Louisa County, Virginia and his son William born abt. 1760.  The page traces the son of William, Samuel,  alludes that William had more children, but does not list them.

John Carter's Genealogy Homepage - Common family line is Cott and begins with the descendancy of John Cott (born about 1804 in Delaware), father of Mary Ann Cott who married Elijah Durham, son of George and Susan Durham (presumably the earliest known ancestors to these research page's family line.)

Moors and Nanticokes:  The History and Genealogy of a Mixed-Race Indian Community in Delaware - Includes a history of Durham Families in Delaware.  Earliest ancestors noted were John and Daniel Durham (probable but unproven relationship.)  While none of their children listed were named George, Daniel Durham's will (probated 1786) does leave "a boy named George" to his son until George reaches the age of 21.
