There was a Wootton who came over to Jamestown in 1607 on the first boat. He was the ship's surgeon and much has been written about him. Does anyone know what happened to him or his line? I've tried to find out if he was killed in one of the raids, but I can't find a thing. Thanks, Kathy

Dr. (Thomas?) Wooten, alledged first physician in America?

The DAR library, Washington, D.C., has most of the publications of the defunct Wooten Family Assn.; amongst them should be (we hope) a study on Dr. Wooten. If I recall correctly, he returned (alive) to England and was without known issue. I think Gen. Preston Wooten joined the Jamestown Society on Dr. Wooten. I once visited with his two sweet old sisters in Kinston, N.C. Most of the early Va. to N.C. Wootens, alledgedly desc. a far more humble (and likely) yoeman Wooten from Castor, England. One of the Wootens as a sideline, made and sold hats at the county fair (outdoor market). I visualize this man walking with two staffs, each supporting a column of hats to sell, and atop his head, another stack of hats. Like our Wooten of yore, once at the county fair, Miss., I do doff my hat to you, I do doff my hat to you, hat, hat, hat, hat....

WARFA & Wooten's

I'm just a dumb-axxed redneck.... but I thought the WARFA journals were made up by a Wooton & the message is posted on the Wootton list.

So how/where/ WHY does everyone use WOOTEN?

Is Adams not different from ADDAMS?

my tree has documented ONE spelling back to 1780's (maybe I'm just lucky). Maybe Spinks can be spelled Sparks who cares? eh?

According to information that I obtained while visiting Jamestown, Thomas Wootton, gentlemen surgeon, was of Dutch descent and died, unmarried, on 4/28/1638
