Re: Manus Deveron's descendants

In Reply to: Manus Deveron's descendants by Kay Ashcroft of 10

Hi Kay-
Don't know if you're still on the forum, but I found Manus Deveron's will. I also found a considerable history of his second wife, Dinah ? Nuthead. Dinah's maiden name remains unknown. She was first married to William Nuthead, a prominent publisher in early Maryland and Virginia. They had two children, William, Jr. and Susannah.
After William, Sr. died, Dinah married Manus Deveron/Devaron. They had no known children and weren't married very long before Manus died. His will mentions only his daughter, Catherine, and his 'children-in-law' William and Susannah Nuthead.
So, unless William Nuthead took his stepfather's name, our William Deveron isn't descended from Manus Deveron. William Nuthead is supposed to have married Catherine Deveron, but there's just circumstantial evidence of that.
These people are well-documented at the Maryland State Library and Archives site online.
Anita
