Hi Glenda,
I received this from the Doane Family Association:


John Done (Doane) was born in England, married an Anne, came to Plymouth, founded Eastham in 1644 with six other families) Anne died and he married Lydia, died 1686 in Eastham. I have no information on Anne Perkins (except that she was not married to John Done!!!)

He is buried in the OLD Cove cemetery in Eastham. His former property adjoins the National Seashore Park in Eastham/Nauseat He had five children with Anne (none with Lydia) You will find places that say his wife was Abigail (she was his daughter) The children were Lydia, born in England, Abigail, John Jr., Daniel, and Ephraim.

The John Done that died in England was the son of Sir John Done of Tarporley. He was the one we thought we were connected to in 1902 when our Volume I was written. Later on we discovered he had died and Volume II tells that. Now don't throw away that pedigree as we may be out of another branch of that line--There are several lines Duddon is one that we are looking at. BUT so far we have no connection.

John Done (ours) shows a connection to Martha Done who came to Plymouth before JOHN did!!!! and married Joseph Harding. Records show she died in 1633 and left her children with our John. Joseph died earlier. Then we have Anne Doane that married William Twining (as his second wife). They had no children. She died and he went to PA with a group consisting of his daughter Mehitable who was married to Daniel Doane, his son Stephen, and they settled in Newtown, PA. We held our reunion there three years ago. The Twinings were Quakers and Daniel joined them (much to the horror of his family who were deacons) His grandfather, John, and his father, Daniel, were deacons in the church in Plymouth and then Eastham. We suspect, as do the Twinings, that Anne was a sister of John.

Notes recieved from
Doane Family Association
Doane Family Historian
Kay Blair Hartman

Note: !See notes of husb. "The Doane Family", by Alfred A. Doane, 1902, states that John Doane's inventory was certified by his wife Abigail. The record doesn't state "wife", only Abigail Doane. "Dawes-Gates Ancestral Lines" and also a Doane family history by Mrs. Emma M. Barrows, says this was his daughter Abigail and his wife in 1648 was Ann, who signed a deed with him covering an exchange of land with Daniel Cole. (Eastham Town Records, Bk 1.) She must have died before 1659 because a deed of that year stated that his wife was Lydia. (Mayflower Desc." XIII, 232.)
