I too, am descended from Richard Dart of Waterford/New London, CT. I was looking on the internet to find anything re: where HE came from, and discovered the info. on his father (also Richard) of Churston Ferrers, Devon, married to Phillip (!) Spearke--who has already been mentioned on this thread... however, someone on another website claims to know HIS father: (another!) Richarde Darte, also of Chruston Ferrers, born in either 1589 or 1586, and who married Johanne Spicer on April 15, 1611 in Kenn, Devon, England!
