      2816. George Mount, born Mar 1626/27 in Boughton Aluph, Kent, England; died 1705 in Middletown, Monmouth Co, NJ. He was the son of 5632. Richard Mount and 5633. Joan Owre. He met 2817. Katherine Boune 1662 in Providence, RI.

      2817. Katherine Boune, born Abt. 1636.

Notes for George Mount:
Disagreement as to whether his dates are 1635-1705 (family genealogy) or 1626-1703 (J. Stillwell). However, WFT Vol 6, 4396 gives May 18, 1626 in Boughton, England.
Also have b. March 1626/27 in Boughton Aluph, Kent d. 1705 in Middletown, NJ
from the very accurate

George Mount, an ironsmith, arrived from England circa 1660 (one source says he was married in Rhode Island in 1662), first settled in Rhode Island; then went to Monmouth County, N.J. Did ornamental ironwork.

In Monmouth County, he was one of the founders of the first Baptist church in the state. In 1667 land was purchased from the Indians by 12 men and 34 associates.
Among the Baptists were:
George Mount
Jonathan Bown
John Bown
John Cox

Of the Mounts in the US, one group is decended from George Mount who was in Rhode Island, then moved to Monmouth County, New Jersey. (Our family)

The other Mounts landed in North Carolina. All Mounts appear to be related to one or the other.

We have a George Mount arriving in Massachussets in 1662 from England. If accurate, that is probably him. Probably went MA then R.I, then Middletown, N.J. Now that we have a marriage location of Providence, RI, this would appear to be him.

The decendents of George Mount are documented in J. Stillwell, "Historical and Genealogical Miscellany", Vol IV

  Notes for Katherine Boune:
It's possible the name is the same name as 'Bown'

George Mount's wife's first name was Katherine. Her last name is not conclusively known. There has been speculation that it was Borden or Grover, but Stillwell argues that it could not be either of these. Therefore, I'm going with Boune, but I don't know what the source for that is.

We have a birthdate for her of 'About 1636' However, this is for a listing of 'Katherine Grover', and I don't know whether this potential birthdate is for a real Katherine Grover, or for the wife of George Mount, who was not named Grover.

WFT Vol 6, 4396 also lists 'About 1636', but for Katherine Borden. Therefore, I'm going with the date, as it appears to be linked to George's wife.

Children of George Mount and Katherine Boune are:
  i.   Katherine Mount, born Abt. 1663.
  1408 ii.   Richard Mount, Sr., born 1665 in Providence, RI; died 1725 in Cranbury, NJ; married Rebecca Wall Bef. 1687 in Freehold, NJ.
  iii.   Matthias Mount, born Abt. 1667; died 1695; married Mary Wall.
  Notes for Mary Wall:
Unknown how Rebecca Wall was related to Mary Wall

      2818. Walter Wall, born Abt. 1638; died 1686 in New Jersey. He married 2819. Annetjke.

      2819. Annetjke, born Abt. 1640.

Notes for Walter Wall:
Grandmommy's chart has him born in 1619 in England, but that would make him 48 when his first son was born, rather than 29.

This date (Abt. 1638) is from the WFT

  Notes for Annetjke:
6, 4396 gives her name as 'Ann Wall' but the last name could well be a mistake.
Child of Walter Wall and Annetjke is:
  1409 i.   Rebecca Wall, born Abt. 1667; married Richard Mount, Sr. Bef. 1687 in Freehold, NJ.

      2820. Thomas Cox, born 1620 in Herefordshire, England; died 1681 in Maspeth Kills, L.I., NY. He married 2821. Elizabeth Blackford Apr 22, 1665 in Maspeth Kills, L.I., NY.

      2821. Elizabeth Blackford, born Abt. 1622.

  Notes for Elizabeth Blackford:
Also have her name as 'Blashford' from Family Genealogy
4396, Vol 6, has her name as 'Elizabeth Blackford' b. abt. 1622
Child of Thomas Cox and Elizabeth Blackford is:
  1410 i.   James Cox, born Aug 18, 1672; died Oct 18, 1750; married Ann Rebecca Stillwell.

      2880. Thomas Hankinson, born 1672 in Plymouth (?), England; died 1724 in Monmouth Co, New Jersey. He was the son of 5760. William Hankinson and 5761. Jane Roderwick. He married 2881. Lydia Boune.

      2881. Lydia Boune

Notes for Thomas Hankinson:
WFT 2, 2574 talks of a Thomas Hankinson. However, highly unclear if it's the correct person, as he'd be only 12 when this all started. However, the death date of 1724 matches up. Maybe he was born earlier than we think? If it is the correct person, then:

This is an excerpt from "This Old Monmouth of Ours"page 105. "The coming to
Monmouth- The particular Hankinson family with which we are here dealing is
probably of Anglo-Saxon origin, the original name being Haneca. It is thought
to have come from Middlesex County, England, its coat of Arms being-Ar. a
fesse gu. fretty or betw. 3 ducks sa. The first of whom we have record is,
Thomas Hankinson, who settled in Monmouth County, New Jersey, about 1684 or 1685. He acquired a tract of land to the southward of the present Freneau,
which was of 200 acres. This he sold to Mark Salem in 1717, at which time
Thomas Hankinson is thought to have removed into the middle of the county,
where he is thought to have died about 1724. The tract on which he settled
first was at the head of Gravel Brook, the feeder of Lake Matawan, and
adjoined the Gordon tract and the Thomas Boels tract, which last comprised
what has been known in late years as the Whitlock and the William H. Horner
farms. No record of his children has been obtained. He had a son, Thomas, and
it is thought that there may have been other children, one of them a William."

Following, is a transcript of the deed for that first tract of land.

Deed, Thomas Hankinson from John Hamton, December 14, 1701.
In consideration of the sum of twenty four pounds current money of this
Province etc. etc.- - all that tract of land situate, lying, and being in the
County of Monmouth aforesaid containing after allowance for highways two

head of Gravelly Brook and thence up the said brook to the place where it

November 13, 1710, a deed was transferred from Benjamin Allen to Thomas
Hankinson. They were both Yeomen of the county of Monmouth in the Province of East Jersey. The price was L 300 N.Y. for 600 acres in Freehold, beginning at
