Who do you all think is Christopher Columbus, James, Gibson and William's father? Do you think it could be Robert Maynard, the man said responsible for the death of Blackbeard the Pirate ? Or could it be William Maynard, who came over from Devonshire, England? Does any one have any advice or suggestions on how to start searching this side of the Maynard lineage? Any help at all will be greatly appreciated!! Thankyou.

When I consider the peices of info that I have read in past few years I have formed the openion that The father of Jame, Christopher Columbus, William and Gibson Maynard are the Sons of William Maynard who came to America on the Ship Brothers at age 16 and he was born 1720. in Devonshire England. My openion, His first marriage was to Agatha last name unk. This marriage probably produced William, James, Christopher Columbus, and Gibson. Some data indicate there could have been two other children Sara and Charity. He then married Aggie Damron and had 8 more children. I think this William Maynard was the son of Lt. Robert Maynard the slayer of blackbeard. And was given Land grants in NC. for his services to the Queen of England. I don't know if this is true but. It is my openion. I would suggest that anyone wanting more evidence do some research on what I have suggested. I would like to read your openion after your research. Charles

I am skeptical of William Maynard being born in Devonshire in 1720 if the source is familysearch.org (a posting by Mills). Do you have any other source for this information. I too am looking for the origins of the Maynards who showed up in NC in 1750-1770. Please contact me at wardmaynard@yahoo.com

You are NOT a descendant Robert Maynard, killer of Blackbeard in 1718

Surnames: Maynard
Captain Robert Maynard RN (c. 1684 – 1 January 1751) was a lieutenant and later captain in the Royal Navy, First Lieutenant of HMS Pearl, most famous for defeating the infamous English pirate Blackbeard in battle near Ocracoke Inlet, North Carolina. Very little is known about Maynard, except for when he killed Blackbeard. Robert Maynard's final resting place is in the churchyard of Great Mongeham in Kent, southeast England. He left an estate in excess of £2000.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Maynard

Inscription on his monument in the churchyard at Great Mongeham:
To the Memory of Capt. Robert MAYNARD a faithfull & experience’d Commander of the Royal Navy; who, after he had distinguish’d himself by many brave and gallant Actions in the Service of his King and Country retired to this Place where he died 1 Jan. 1750-51 aged 67.
http://www.kentarchaeology.org.uk/Research/Libr/MIs/MIsGreat...

His will is available on line for a fee at
http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/
Reference:PROB 11/786/337
Description: Will of Robert Maynard, Captain of Great Mongeham, Kent
Date: 28 March 1751
Held by: The National Archives, Kew
Legal status: Public Record
Robert Maynard’s will was made on 12 October 1750 and proved on 28 March 1751 (PROB 11/786/337). It lists bequests to his wife, Mrs Ann Maynard; his sister Margaret Mitchell (formerly wife of John Peck of Boston, New England, deceased) and her children Thomas, John and Ann Peck; his sister-in-law Mrs Ann Maynard, widow of his brother Captain Thomas Maynard; his friend Mr Thomas Gee of Holborn, London, and his "daughter-in-law" (possibly stepdaughter) Elizabeth Judson of Great Mongeham, whom he appoints executrix.

There is nothing here to suggest he left sons named Maynard—not in England and certainly not in the American colonies.
