David posted a question at the fair last year and the answers he got helped him overcome a huge wall. He's back this year with a new query.
Miles Prickett/Pickett sailed in 1610 to America on the ship Susan Constance, he was 36 therefore birth year estimated at 1574.
We think we have found a son John born in 1629 who married Ruth Brewster.
Trying to discover where Miles originated from, any information about how we could find his birth appreciated.
has he a reference for the Susan Constance --- sailing in 1610 please as
I can only find one sailing
Susan Constant Master -Chr.Newport Dec 1606 England -1607 Jamestown, VA
was going to look at passenger list ... as mostly many families left from the same village ..... so a chance may lead to his family in parish records
Thanks Renes for your reply - David has come back and let us know that this is the correct reference .
what i'd like to find out was Miles Prickett/pickett from Devon or from Cheshire.
Thanks again for your help!
Reading through on the many, many web postings concerning Miles Pickett .....Prickett
it seems to be "assumed" he came in 1610 ..... although no pioneers listing for 1610 has been found ( so I could not have checked for possible "villages" on there from other families )
There is also some controversy as to whether a Will ( reproduced in many books in USA and England ) generally believed to have been made by Miles ,,, proves or disproves that he dies in England................ or not
I am sure David has read all these accounts -------- and wish him good luck
if I were him I would check this out
"My mother was a Prickett and I have traced her family from present day to 1700's [ Kent England.]
I know that Miles sailed to the US in 1610 and was born abt 1574 in Holy Cross Kent.
I think he may have returned to Kent where he died.I have found his will online and it mentions his family by name, they were all from Kent England.
So I'm not sure if he has any descendants in the US as I know there were Pricketts that sailed later on if you are interested."
finally ............... He was a passenger on the STAR

he following is from The Prickett Family, Page 248.
One of the earliest Pricketts who came to America was Miles
Prickett who came on Capt. Pryn's ship "Star" about 1610
He was then 36 years old. He was "of the Parish of Holy Cross, near and without the walls of the city of Canterbury,
His will dated is recorded in the colonial records
of Virginia and mentions brother John, brother Thomas,
sister Jane and brother Williams's two children.
He willed his land (200 acres) situated near Salford's Creek
in Virginia City to Brother John Prickett.
This could possibly be the beginning of Pricketts
