  • Notes 
    • The Knowlton DNA group website (https://www.familytreedna.com/groups/knowlton-surname/about/background) shows that the descendants of the two sons of William, John and William, are not related, based on Y-DNA analysis of the two lines. John's descendants are in the Haplogroup R1b and William's descendants are in the Haplogroup T. Most likely somewhere in John's descendant line an interruption occurred.

      Knowlton Genealogy by C.H.W. Stocking 1897
      Errata & Addenda by G.H. Knowlton 1903:
      Captain William Knowlton sailed from London, England to Nova Scotia in 1632-4 w/ wife & children. He was at least part owner in the boat. He died on the voyage. His wife & children continued to Nova Scotia. They remained in Nova Scotia for a short time. They then proceeded to Ma., probally Hingham, the following year, where his widow is said to have remarried. John removed to Ipswich in 1639 & William & Thomas in 1642. John, Benjamin, Abraham, & William served in King Phillip's War.
      This "story" by Stocking has been disproven by several people.

    • REF: TheTreeDr THETREEDR-THREE Family Tree, Ancestry.com
      Robert was probably born in Hertfordshire, England in the 1560's. St. Stephen, St. Albans parish in Hertfordshire is a possible location but it can't be proven because the christening records for that period have been lost.

      Will of Ralph Knolton, Yeoman
      June 1638
      Ruislip, Middlesex, England
      After Robert's decease, his three sons John, William and Thomas and daughters Agnes and Dorothy are beneficiaries in the Will of Ralph Knolton. See the gallery page for more discussion of the possible relationship between Ralph and Robert.

      TheTreeDr has several excellent documents that support his conclusions and potential future discoveries.
