In Reply to: Christopher Tilghman/Ruth Devonshire -- Ruth is daughter to Earl Blount? by Karen Fox of 138

Although I don't have anything specific about Ruth's parents, it recently occurred to me that Ruth was not a common name in Elizabethan England. Of course, she was probably born a little AFTER the Elizabethan period, i. e. in the early 1600s, when the Puritans were becoming more prominent, and they often gave their children Old Testament names. That fact may be a lead!
