Some of the relationships shown here are admittedly speculative - please, if anyone has good documentation on this family, let us know!
Estate papers refer to both "Mary intermarried with John Wier" and "Polly intermarried with Greenbury Peddycot" so these are presumably two different children. David and Benjamin were under age at the time of their father's death, and were still under age as late as 1814 based on guardians' bonds, which name John Hier as their guardian. Are they really sons of Rudolph and Nancy, or could they possibly be grandsons instead?
