Nicholas married Julyann GYLLIAN, F. Born ca 1540.

We are not sure how many generations there are between here and Holland.

 

They had the following children:

                        i.          Richard

          3           ii.          Thomas

                      ix.          Katheryn

 

 

Third Generation

-----------------

Family of Nicholas WOERKMAN (2) & Julyann GYLLIAN

 

3. Thomas WOERKMAN

 

The below is pure speculation.  Trying to place mixed up data in some sort of order.  I feel that all before Holland needs much more research for which I do not have time.  We can only trust what we our self have time to document.

 

Thomas married Agnes HALE

 

They had the following children:

                        i.          Alyse Born bef 1574. Alyse died in 1574.

4. Jans (John)  William WOERKMAN, M. Born in Stroud, Glouchester, England ca 1598. Jans (John)  William died on 3 May 1647 in Amsterdam Holland.

 

The Dutch ancestors from material gathered by Lorraine Hansen Butta of Longmont CO., from Dutch Reform Church Records.  It is believed that he was an emigrant from England in 1628, coming to Holland as a result of religious persecution during the time of the Puritan upheavals...In church records, the patronymic (naming) pattern was followed . John's son Richard, is recorded as Dirck Jansen (or Jans) meaning Richard, son of John.

 

ca 1628 Jans (John)  William married Harmtje (Hannah), F. Born in 1604/1607. Harmtje (Hannah) died aft 1685 in USA?

 

They had the following children:

                       ii.          Elizabeth, F. Born in Amsterdam, Holland ca 1630. Elizabeth died on 10 Mar 1694.

Some of the names and dates of the Workmans are taken from Some Branches of

the Workman Tree by Sayre 1979. I talked to Ralph Sayre via phone on May 4,

1997. He wanted me to convey that there are some errors in his work and we

should take the names and dates and use it as a reference and go out and

document our own lines. This is also the way I feel. I am providing the

material as a help to you and you should verify your line.
