(Research):----- Original Message ----- From: Leslie Maddocks <> To: <> Sent: Tuesday, June 26, 2001 10:13 AM Subject: Maddocks Genealgy Hi - I am wondering if you have made any progress on finding the parents of your Nathaniel Maddocks? My brick wall is Joseph Maddocks b 1769 Lincolnville, ME d 17 Oct 1853 buried Hermon's Pond Cemetery. He had a son Nathaniel B. born 24 Aug 1804. In looking your list of Maddocks names I don't see any of the other naming patterns used within this family: Lewis A.; Eugene; Winthrop and John, but thought there might be some connection, or possibly you have some information on this family that might be useful to me. Joseph married Mary Carr 2 Oct 1791 in Vinalhaven. Most of their children and families moved to Owl's Head, and eventually on to ND, MN and WA although some lines did remain in Maine. Thanks for any advice or assistance you can provide. Leslie in Florida (Leslie Jeffcoat Maddocks)

source: 973 w2c 1983 v.5-9 in vol. 5 page 24 found Nathaniel Maddocks, in August 1773, reprived on condition of transportation to the American Colonies. Sent there to serve a 14 year sentence (see page xiv). left from Devon, England.

Though I show him dead in 1861, this shows up in the 1880 census for a Nathaniel Maddocks for about the correct age:

I believe the above census is NOT our Nathaniel. Here is more about the above Nathl and Abigail Maddocks: Early Families of Chesterville, Maine

All information is taken from the first 125 pages of Book One at the Town Office. Spelling remained as recorded. All dates were read to the best of my ability. Family relationships were recorded for future reference.
