  4. Marian-- Jewetts are one of my families! Ezra is not in my direct line, however. They were Puritans and settled in Rowley in 1638 from Bradford, England. This past May I was fortunate to be in the very church that the original Jowets were baptized in, in Bradford, Eng. What an amazing experience! Thanks for the photos!

  5. More Jewetts to come this week. Maybe one of them will be in your direct line.
