I found your information on Henry Kingman interesting and consistent with what I have found. I recently had a researcher in the Somerset area do a search for Henry's ancestors. He is Bernard Welshman and seems to be a competent professional. He searched many parish records and bishop's transcripts with no results. It is his opinion that the records were probably lost in the WWII bombing. The "un-named" ship has been quite a source of speculation, but referring to the two lists that have one "Thomas Holbrook" on both and that the two departed Weymouth about the same time it was probably one and the same, the "Mary Gould," or "Marygold." The "History of Weymouth, MA" talks about the coming of the Hull party. From "The Great Migration Newsletter," vol 7 1998 "Passenger ships of 1635," the Marygould is listed. I am putting together a collection of Kingman stories am trying to get as much info as possible. The Kingman name exists in the Somerset area today and it would interesting to contact one of them and see where the Kingman name came from even if we cannot connect it to Henry. Good future project.
Good hunting, Edward Kingman
