Generation Seven

18. GEORGE7 WIGHTMAN (John6, Edward5, John4, William3, Richard2, Thomas1), son of (13) John6 WIGHTMAN, was born on 4 Nov. 1632[2] in England[2], and died between 1721 and 1722[2] in Kingstowne[2]. He married prob. Kingstowne[2], about 1663[2], (AFN-12) ELIZABETH UPDIKE, daughter of (AFN-11) Gysbert and (AMA-9) Catherine (SMITH) OP DEN DYCK, who was christened on 27 July 1644[3, 27] in New Amsterdam[3, 27], and died between 1712 and 1716[2] in Kingstowne[2]. [2, 27, 33]
A tradition regarding George's parentage, which has been traced back through several generations of the family and in various branches, is first found recorded in "Materials for a History of the Baptists in Rhode Island" by Rev. Morgan Edwards of Providence (R.I. Hist. Soc. Lib., MS. dated 1771); but it is recorded there as tradition only. In later years this tradition, although still unsupported by any documentary proof, has been accepted by some as established fact. This tradition represents George Wightman as the son of John and grandson of Edward Wightman of Burton-on-Trent, co. Stafford, Eng. Whitman's material, which appears to have bearing upon the question of George Wightman's English forebears, is not presented as based upon the above-mentioned tradition, but it does lead to it.[12]
