PDF VERSION 28 Jun 2018

Descendants of John Terry (1713-1789) of Bucks County Pennsylvania

By Richard L. Tolman, Ph. D.

 

Acknowledgement: The author is very grateful to Patrick A. Terry of Great Falls, Cascade, Montana and Laura Lovett of Larkspur, Marin, California for material contributions, useful discussions and editorial comments.

     This essay is a part (subdivision) of the ‘Five Generations of the Terry of Bucks County Pennsylvania’ essay, describing the descendants of John Terry, a grandson of Thomas Terry (born abt 1653), the first Terry settler of Bucks County. John Terry (1713-1789) a grandson of Thomas has only one male descendant that had children and it is suspected that this son was adopted and carried the Terry name but not the Terry genes, carrying instead Lovett family genes.2

     Conclusion: Patrick A. Terry does not have Terry Y-DNA (28 mismatches). Matches have generally genetic distances (column 1) of 2-4.

     The fact that Patrick Terry, a living descendant of this John Terry, does not possess the Terry Y-DNA indicates that a non-paternity event (NPE) has occurred (commonly an adoption or illegitimacy). The NPE could have happened any time after abt 1653 (the birth of Thomas Terry of Bucks). This is because at least 3 of this Thomas Terry’s progeny are proven to have virtually the same (Terry) Y-DNA (see ‘Addendum 1. Analysis of Terry Y-DNA Markers’). Recently Patrick has been shown to be a blood descendant of the Lovett family (and to possess the Lovett Y-DNA).3 Lovett and Terry families were neighbors in the 16th and 17th century in England (Buckinghamshire) as well as in Bucks County (see Figure 1 and note 18 in the ‘Five Gen’s…’ essay). This argues that the NPE is more likely to have happened in that century after the birth of Thomas Terry of Bucks before the families had moved further apart.

     Examination of the genealogies of the two families during this period allows several observations to be made:

     John Terry (b. 1713) married Rachel Heston Lacey, but they only had one daughter who died in infancy (1740) indicating they may have had biological problems raising a family.

Figure 2. Ilegitimate child of Edmund Lovett, Jr. with Ann Boughman, Falls Monthly Meeting, 6 Apr 1750 (Note 5).

      In the Lovett family, Edmond Lovett, Jr. of Emilie, Middletown Township (now Bristol), Bucks (b. 1720, son of Edmund and Magdalena (Giffin/Gittin) Lovett) was ‘removed’4 (disowned) in Sep 1750 by the Quakers (Falls Monthly Meeting, Bucks) for siring a bastard with Ann Boughman.5

      His brother Daniel Lovett6 of Falls Township (1723-1785) was suspected (10 Jun 1762) of siring a bastard with his housekeeper.7 The bastard child of Daniel Lovett is described as ‘a child’ in 1762.8

      It is most likely that it is the illegitimate child of Edmund Lovett, Jr. and Ann Boughman that was raised by the Terry neighbors (see Figure 2) as John Lacey Terry (b. 1740) since Daniel’s bastard would probably have been too old to become ‘John Lacey Terry’.

     As speculative as this may seem, it is still the best and most probable explanation for the facts.
