    • This family is intentionally unlinked/orphaned from the main family tree structure.

      The family of Agnes Hale was formerly linked to Thomas Workman/Woertman, son of Nicholas. I have no proof that this family was related to Thomas. However, Thomas's will probated in 1579 (per extensive research by Anderson [Workman Family History]), making it clear that many of these children could not be his by any spouse. Formerly, John William Workman/Woertman was included here as one of Agnes's children. I have unlinked him from this family as there is no proof of that union being from Thomas, son of Nicholas.

      John William Workman/Woertman (previously represented as a son of Thomas, son of Nicholas) is not listed in the initial two sections of Anderson; however, he is given in the following sections as a key figure preceding the emigration of his descendants to America. These later sections are not a genealogy of descendants of Nicholas, but are descendants of John William himself...and no parents for John William are given in Anderson sections available. In that work and section, he is designated as 1H, a code used to identify the first of a family migrating from Holland to America. Nicholas and his descendants migrated from England.

      Therefore 1)John William is unlinked from Nicholas's son, Thomas; 2)John William is now given as the oldest ancestor in our Workman lineage until his parents' information and documentation is found. Our lineage goes from Susannah Workman, wife of Capt. James Harvey Sperry back through time to John William Workman/Woertman.
