Thomas Nevins of Nova Scotia

Master Index - Surname Index

Thomas Nevins immigrated to Nova Scotia in 1711 as documented in the Thomas Nevins Family Record which is found at the Connecticut State Library. Added is info from FHL and an data base developed by Art Nevins, some E-mails from a Mike Lehman, and other bits and pieces. This descendency is not complete -- Thomas had three sons (Thomas, David, and William). It appears that the Mrs. Reed who compiled it (from notes compiled by a Mr. William Nevins of Falmouth Maine) got worn out before she completed the task. She stops when she gets to her ancestors, who are on the Thomas (Thomas) line. There is not much on David (Thomas) or William (Thomas) -- not even any connection to the William Nevins of Falmouth Maine who started this whole effort. There are no Nevins of Palmer MA (despite representations in William Nevins' advertisement for the book which was never published). It is clear that if this branch is related to our Samuel, the connection is back in Ireland (by the ages our Samuel could be the father or uncle of Thomas). However, the data base is very useful for eliminating unrelated Nevins and as a reference for other Nevins researchers. - William Nevins
