Surname: Judd

The Judd line is part of Rosmer Pettis Kerr's heritage. Rosmer's seventh great-grandfather was:
  • Thomas Judd, born 1608 in England. He came over in 1633 or 1634. With his first wife Elizabeth, he had nine children. She died in 1678. He married second the widow of Thomas Mason. Her name was Clemence. Thomas Judd died in 1688. He and his wife Elizabeth were my ninth great-grandparents.
  • Elizabeth Judd, daughter of Thomas and Elizabeth Judd. Both she and her brother William were born sometime between 1633 and 1636. They are the eldest of the nine children, but it's unknown which of them was born first. Elizabeth married Samuel Loomis on 27 December 1653. Elizabeth and Samuel were my eighth great-grandparents.
You can read more about the Judd family below, in Doctor Henry Skilton and His Descendants. Begin at the last paragraph of page 29.
