Cate Surname in Devonshire
Posted by: John Cates (ID *****3246) Date: November 08, 2004 at 09:38:07

I am looking for information about the Cate family in Devonshire. Here is what I know. William ABraham Cate, had 2 sons Richard and Robert born 1667 in Colyton. In 1689 both immigrated to Virginia. Richard was indentured to Benjamin Harrison and Robert to Peter Wyke. Richard disappears and no trace. Robert married to Mary Ann Randall and dies in 1729. There may be a connection to Robert Cate born 1526 in Colyton and married to Margaret Bagwell born 1530 in Colyton. Their children were Agnes Cate born 1557, Robert born 1552, and James born 1554. The ship that Richard and Robert immigrated to Virginia in 1689 was the BENGAL MERCHANT, but I cannot find the information to prove it. I did find information from the Mormon Church to approve the above, but not the immigration on the BENGAL MERCHANT. Can anyone provide further information. Thank yOU. John Cates
