Yancey - Watkins - Baynes notes

Posted: 1348526186000
Classification: Query
Surnames: yancey, baynes, watkins
Here below is an early Yancey connection that few yancey researchers have included in their reports
My guess is this is might be Mary Yancey - the wife of Richard Yancey Jr of Mecklenburg. (the parents of the Absalom Yancey also mentioned)
Also note the Baynes connection - which also intermarried with Yancey.

Elizabeth Watkins, Nancy Hayes (wife of Strake Hayes) Jany Knight, Susanna Baynes and Sally Hunt to them
and their heirs forever”. Husband names from other researchers. Other than John Baynes Jr and Starkey Hayes,
I was unable to verify husband names. John Baynes and Andrew Knight witnessed the will of Thomas Watkins Jr
