WINGEAT Family - mariners

(Under Construction)

THIS PAGE:  [Tree]


We do not yet know how this family connects into other WINDGEAT family trees although it could be the missing link between the Torquay and the Ugborough trees.  The Robert who married Richorde HINE below having probably been born in Ugborough and moved on to Ughborough and his sons moving on out to the coast.  There are maritime connections in both families which adds extra weight to this idea. 

The tree below has been put together from information from descendants and various census transcriptions, BMD certificate data and the IGI.  A lot of it is guesswork (especially the relationships before 1837) and has not been verified.

One of the Edwards above must be the person referred to in the following report:
The mystery respecting the death of a seaman, whose body was found at Portleven, on Thursday, has been cleared up.  It is ascertained that the deceased was Edward WINDEATT, a pilot, of Plymouth.  He was steering a smack, when he disappeared overboard, and with him the tiller.  It is believed that a yard struck him while a sail was being shifted and knocked him over the side - hence the wounds on the head which caused suspicions.
