Surname Saturday - LNU (Eunice married to Moses Maverick, England to colonial New England)

It's Surname Saturday, and I'm "counting down" my Ancestral Name List each week.  

I am working in the 9th great-grandmothers by Ahnentafel number, and I am up to   Ancestor #2063 who is Eunice LNU (1628-1698). 
[Note: the earlier great-grandmothers and 9th great-grandfathers have been covered in earlier posts.]

My ancestral line back through one generation in this LNU family line is:

1. Randall J. Seaver

2. Frederick Walton Seaver (1911-1983)
3. Betty Virginia Carringer (1919-2002)

4. Frederick Walton Seaver (1876-1942)
5. Alma Bessie Richmond (1882-1962)

8. Frank Walton Seaver (1852-1922)
9. Hattie Louise Hildreth (1857-1920)

16. Isaac Seaver (1823-1901)
17. Lucretia Townsend Smith (1827-1884)

32. Benjamin Seaver (1791-1825)
33. Abigail Gates (1797-1869)

64. Benjamin Seaver (1757-1816)
65. Martha Whitney (1764-1832)

128.  Norman Seaver (1734-1787)
129.  Sarah Read (1736-1809)

256. Robert Seaver (1702-1752)

257.  Eunice Rayment (1707-1772)

514.  Samuel Rayment (1679-1723)
515.  Eunice Norman (1686-1743)

1030.  John Norman (1660-1709)
1031.  Sarah Maverick (1658-1723)

2062.  Moses Maverick, born before 03 November 1611 in South Huish, Devon, England; died 28 January 1686 in Marblehead, Essex, Massachusetts, United States.  He was the son of 4124. John Maverick and 4125. Mary Gye.  He married 22 October 1656 in Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts, United States.
2063.  Eunice LNU, born about 1628 in England; died after 05 December 1698 in probably Marblehead, Essex, Massachusetts, United States.

Children of Moses Maverick and Eunice LNU are:

*  Mary Maverick (1657-1695), married 1681 Archibald Ferguson (1649-1727).
Sarah Maverick (1659-1723), married 1683 John Norman (1660-1709).
*  Moses Maverick (1660-1685).
*  Aaron Maverick (1663-1685).

Eunice LNU married, first, to Thomas Roberts (1618-1654) in about 1645.  They had four children:

*  Timothy Roberts (1646-????).
*  Elizabeth Roberts (1648-????)
*  Kydia Roberts (1651-????)
*  Eunice Roberts (1653-????).

Some online trees state that Eunice LNU's maiden name was Cole, the daughter of William Cole and Abigail Bryant.  Other online trees say her parents were Edward Brown and Faith Lord.  I have no clue who was the parents of Eunice (LNU) (Roberts) Maverick.

Information about the early Maverick family in New England was obtained from:

*  William Prescott Greenlaw, "John Maverick and Some of His Descendants," New England Historical and Genealogical Register, Volume 96, p. 232 ff, 

*  Burton W. Spear (editor), The Search for the Passengers of the 'Mary and John', 1630, Volume 7, Maverick through Stoughton, (Boston : Mary & John Clearing House, 1987.

Among the ancestors we have in common (there seem to be many) Moses is one! But I descend from his first wife Remember Allerton. Just stopping by to say Howdy Cousin :)
