Surname Saturday ~ REDMAN of Hampton, New Hampshire

Founder's Park, Hampton, New Hampshire


My 10th great grandfather, John Redman (about 1620 – 1700), is of unknown origins and his birthdate is unknown, too.  He was a blacksmith who settled in Hampton, New Hampshire.  He first appeared in the records around 1642.  He also testified in the witchcraft trial of Eunice Cole on 4 September 1656, along with Abraham Perkins  (my 1st cousin 12 generations removed). 

John married Margaret Knight as his first wife.  She was the daughter of Robert Knight and Margaret Grimsley early settlers at York, Maine.  She died in 1658 after giving him four children, and he remarried to Sabina Page, the widow of Captain William Marston.  I descend from their only daughter, Mary, who married immigrant Leonard Weeks, and had eight children.  They lived in Greenland, New Hampshire.
