Sorry, but nothing seems to match thus far. However, your line appears to have left New Hampshire between 1698 and 1703 for the portion of Penn's Colony that became Delaware around the time of his arrival. The John Parkins in whom I have an interest through my wife acquired land in Pr. George's Co., MD in 1725, in the general area (I'm guessing) of today's Andrews AFB. Given that Chesapeake Bay was a transportation artery, and not an obstacle in that day and time, it's easy to see how we of the John Parkins line perhaps ought to be looking for a connection through New Castle and on back to New Hampshire. If you see any possibilities for this idea, please post your thoughts here. Thanks!
