Another curiosity. This line in your post:
Thomas DURHAM b: 6 MAR 1660/61 d: 30 MAY 1715
| \Judith HUNT b: 1636 d: 1743

I have been researching a Robert Durham who was found guilty of stealing 3 sheep in Middlesex County, England (near London, I believe). His punishment was "transportation" - a means of dealing with criminals other than hanging. Robert Durham was sent to America around 1728. 3 years later an "Elizabeth Durham, alias "Hunt", also came to America aboard the exact same ship "Patapsco", which Robert Durham had sailed on 3 years earlier. I did find that there was an "Elizabeth Durham" who also was found guilty of stealing. I think it was dresses, not completely sure.

I find it coincidental that Elizabeth Durham, alias "Hunt" has the same name you listed with Thomas Durham and Judith Hunt.
