  • Note:
    My NEHGR source is a chart in Volume 10, page 304 (provided by George R. Curwen and dated Salem, 1st March 1856) that gives the descendants of the original immigrant George Curwen/Curwin. It lists the generations prior to Bartholomew Curwen, his son George, and George's children in the chart, but does not include the last three children (Ann, Amos, and Elizabeth). It does list the first six children, in order, with the birth dates indicated. Given that no further information such as marriages or deaths is given for this arm of the family, one might assume that the NEHGR source for this family had no further information after the birth of Ruth.

    The Corwin Genealogy lists all of the children given in the NEHGR chart in the same order, but adds Ann, Amos, and Elizabeth as the last 3 children. I assume that this is based on information not available to the auther of the NEHGR article, and that these 3 additional children were born in the order given as the last 3 children of George & Abigail. Note that there is some confusion over the identity of Alice & Elizabeth (involving their birth dates and spouse).

    The text of the NEHGR article mentioned above is mostly about the spelling of the name used by the earliest immigrants of the family. Capt. George, the first immigrant, used Curwin, then Corwin and sometimes Corwine. It indicates one document naming George Corwin and his son John Curwin, which is the only instance that the author found of John's signature using any name other than Corwin. Most early generations used Corwin, but the author entitled the article "The Name of Curwen", obviously preferring that spelling over the earlier versions.


    The Corwin Genealogy states that George's name appeared on the land rolls in New Jersey in 1760 and that his family moved to Kentucky after his death (about 1794?).
