Descendants of Edward Hilton - PA


First Generation  Next

1. Edward Hilton was born before 1710 in Probably Ireland and died before Aug 1773 in Warwick Twp, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, USA.

General Notes: IMMIGRATION: I have been unable to find any HILTON that immigrated prior to 1737... The closest I have found is the Ship SUPPLY that docked in Feb 1726 in Annapolis, MD, had the following people:

Edward Leigh, Agnes Leighton, Richard Leighton... My argument that these could be them was that We know Edward Hilton had a daughter named Agnes, so if Edward Leigh and Agnes Leighton were husband and wife. In Edwards will, he left property to his daughter Agness Wishet, was she named after his wife? Then Richard was most likely related... there is a Richard Hilton that owned land in Lancaster County in 1750.... Now, this ship brought Felons.... the saga continues.
