Thank you for your reply. I am so very to hear about your family issues. I sincerely hope that things get sorted out very soon! I just want to say that I appreciate everything you have done and all the time you have invested in helping us learn more about Humphrey. If there is ever anything I can do to assist with this endeavor, please let me know.
Agreed with Beth, here. Very sorry to read this note with family issues.
Hi Again Ann
re the link in your email-I descend from Henry Tomlinson and his wife Alice-my ancestor Anne Tomlinson m. Nathan Mansfield! I have never seen his wife’s maiden name listed as Hyde, everything I’ve seen lists it as unknown, but there is a Henry Tomlinson genealogy on ancestry.com and his parents are listed as George Tomlinson and Maria Hyde who married at St. Peter’s Church in Derby I believe in January, 1600 and Henry Tomlinson was baptized in November, 1606 at St. Peter’s Church. The genealogy says these records were lfound in the parish register of St. Werburgh’s Derby. Maybe this St. Werburgh’s was a repository for records from different churches. I hop this is helpful.
Beth – There is an update. A well-credentialed genealogist, who is a delight to correspond with, has most likely located Humphrey and his family in England. I am still in the process of completing my work, which has turned into a longitudinal study of his associations in America. I can’t reveal more until after I’ve been able to confirm her work was published and find out how she wants to proceed. More when I can.
Thank you so much for sharing this update-it’s fabulous news! I can’t wait to hear more about that, as well as the research you have been doing. We truly appreciate all the time and effort you have put fourth on this project.
I hope all is well with you and anyone who might read this. I was just wondering if you have heard anymore from the researcher who may have uncovered Humphrey Hyde’s origins in England? It is very exciting news. Take care and stay well.
Beth, she may have already published, will have to check with her and let you know. My schedule is all over the place but I’m trying to carve out some time for Humphrey this coming week. I’m down to two key incidents in his life. Two! It’s been quite a journey, I had no idea when I started that someone who is so obscure could be so interesting.
Hi Again Ann:
Thank you for your update! I can’t wait to read your information and reading what this historian has discovered about his origins in England-it’s very exciting!
Who were Humphreys kids? Richard?
I hope things are will with you! Just wondering if there is any update on when you might be able to share the info on Humphrey Hyde’s English origins that you mentioned a genealogist may have uncovered? Thanks and be well!
I hope things are will with you! I was just wondering if there was a update to your post of of February 18. 2020.
Beth, I’ve been corresponding with Myrtle Stevens Hyde, FASG. She is preparing a free, downloadable booklet of her research on Humphrey, including where he came from in England. I’m still completing my work on him, and I think once everything is done, the different approaches will compliment one another and provide a full picture of his life.
Thank you very much for the update! That is very exciting news-I can’t wait to read her pamphlet. Hearing that the elusive Humphrey Hyde’s origin’s have been located gives me a lot of hope for the many brick walls I’m still trying to solve. I hope you and your family had a good holiday, and I wish you all a very Happy and Healthy New Year! Thank you for all the time and hard work you have done on this site-it is very much appreciated!
I was just wondering if there is any info on when Myrtle Hyde Stevens will release her pamphlet on Humphrey Hyde? Thanks again for all you have done to increase our knowledge about Humphrey!
Beth, you’ve been so incredibly patient about Humphrey. I can check with Myrtle. I’m very close to having a chunk of uninterrupted time, which is what I really need to finish up. “Regular” genealogy I can do from anywhere on a phone or tablet. Humphrey takes a good 5-10 mins just to set up the notes on the screens in my office. Both kids are home, one just started college and driving, and the other is determined to graduate HS a year early. One overarching issue with my parents estate should be resolved by early next week. Then, fingers crossed, I can start again.
Any recent word on the status of Myrtle Hyde Steven’s pamphlet on Humphrey-sorry to keep inquiring-just very anxious to see what she has uncovered and looking forward to reading your write-up on Humphrey! Thanks!
Beth – very soon for both of these.
