The Ancestry of Dorothea Poyntz
for Six Generations
by Ronny O. Bodine
It is most unusual that a complete four generation ancestry can be compiled for someone born in 1631. But such is the case for Dorothea Poyntz, whose known ancestry includes both parents, four grandparents, eight great-grandparents and all sixteen great-great-grandparents. A total of 30 ancestors. This ancestry was first presented in the December 1990 issue of the Owsley Family Historical Society Newsletter. Further details have been added in the ensuing years. A bibliography to cited sources may be found at the end.

FP: 137 states "It is however not unlikely that he was the John Poñtes who was ' living in Virginia in James Town (city) and with the Corporation thereof,' whose name is given in the index as Poyntz in Hotten's list of Apprentices and Emigrants, &c." This possible reference, in fact, relates to one John Pountis, mentioned in early Virginia records as Poynts, Poynes, and Poyne, subsequently Vice Admiral of Virginia, who died in 1624 and whose will of 1618 makes it clear the two men were not identical.

120. ALEXANDER COPE, of Bramshill, Hampshire and Denshanger, Northamptonshire. (HNO, 1: 748; HP/1439, 1: 219; MGH, 3(4): 208 cites the tomb of Sir William Cope, no. 60, as providing the correct name of his father and thus BLG16: 2631 and BP105: 639 are incorrect in citing Stephen Cope, of Denshanger and Grimsbury, Northamptonshire as the father.)

At his death in 1497, his daughter Jane (Joan) was already married to William Cope, whereas his two younger children (by his 2nd wife) were minors, his son being only 6 years old.
