Adelia...I, too, am descended from George and Elizabeth Wilkinson Felt. What I'm about to tell you came from a book called "The Felt Genealogy" compiled by John E Morris, 1893:
In a testimony by George Felt himself, describing himself as 80 years old, testifies "that the town of Charlestown gave him an house plott of two acres...was given him about forty-eight years since."(about 1632).
His wife was Elizabeth, daughter of Prudence Wilkinson. Prudence Wilkinson's will, dated "1655, 11: Mo : 9, day", names her son John and her daughter Eliza. Felt.
On the 19 Jan 1639/40, Elizabeth Felt, wife of George, was admitted to the communion of the First Church, and one week later on 26 January, had her three children, Elizabeth, Mary, and George, baptized. Elder John Green listed the three children as Felch, although he listed her a week earier as Felt. There is no record of George Felt (the father) as a member. Also, the compiler of this book didn't know if George and Elizabeth were already married when they came to Charlestown, MA, or not. Do you have a record of this? In 1640, he obtained 300 acres of land in Broad Cove on Casco Bay, ME, and by 1643, became one of the Pioneer settlers of North Yarmouth, ME. "The advent of George Felt in Broad Cove may be said to be the birthday of North Yarmouth." George died in 1693 in Malden, MA. Elizabeth died in 1694.
By the way, I am descended through their son Moses, b. 1651 in MA. I have quite a bit more info if you want to contact me.
