  • Notes 
    • Ancestry: Ames (1938) states the following: Note: In Mitchell’s ‘History of Bridgewater’ (1840), which contained the first American account of the family, this John Ames of Bruton is called Richard— an error copied in several subsequent records.

      The descent is given as:

      (1) JOHN AMES. All that is known of this earliest ancestor from whom the Ames family of Easton can trace direct descent is that he was buried in Bruton, Somersetshire, England, Feb. 21, 1560, and that he had at least one son.

      Issue
      i. John Ames (see 2).

      (2) JOHN AMES, son of John Ames (i). Born, Bruton, England; died there in 1583. Married, Sept. 25, 1559, Margery Crome (or Brome).

      Issue (All born in Bruton, England)
      i. John Ames (see 3).
      ii. Launcelot Ames, born about 1562.
      iii. William Ames, born about 1564.

      (3) JOHN AMES, eldest son of John Ames (2). Christened, Bruton, England, May i, 1560; died there in 1629.
      sue (All born in Bruton, England)
      1
      i. Thomas Ames, died in infancy.
      ii. Henry Ames, christened July 25, 1603.
      iii. William Ames (see 4).
      iv. John Ames (see 4A).
      V. Mary Ames, christened Apr. 1, 1613.


      Richard Ames has different dates than this John Ames. More research is needed. I have followed the line given by Ames, Richard (1959). [4, 5]
