I am looking for information relating to Capt. John Hatfield, born in ENGLAND circa 1740. I'm not sure where he came from but I've been given a lead of FONTMELL MAGNA, Dorset, England.
Captain John married Mary Lockerman of Staten Island New York on June 28, 1778, in New York.
Approx. 1783 he sailed to Nova Scotia, Canada, settling in Fox River (Parrsboro). That is where my grandfather wsa born (Jack E.M. Hatfield 1898-1962).
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
