Generation: 1

  1. 1.  Joan


    Sometimes referred to as "Joan Christopher", but we don't actually know her maiden name, just the name of her first husband, Mountstephen.

    However, as Jon M. Stallard points out (citation details below), it's notable how many of her descendants had Christopher as their given name -- including four of PNH's direct ancestors, all direct descendants of Joan through her marriage to Edward Thompson, whether or not her first husband Thomas Butler was also a PNH ancestor. (Which he may have been.)

    Family/Spouse: Nicholas Mountstephen. Nicholas was born in in of St. Martin Ludgate, London, England; died before 8 Sep 1625. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]

    Joan married Thomas Butler on 16 Jan 1626 in St. Magnus the Martyr, London, England. Thomas (son of John Butler and Jane Elliott) was born about 1606; died before 16 Jan 1647 in Kent Island, Maryland. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]
