  • Notes 
    • [pam garrett's comment] Over my years of research I have looked at several Mathews individuals and families that I thought might lead to the Ancestors of Catherine Mathews, wife of John Markham. My notes have become so unwieldy that I have felt need of entering these people, individually, into my database. The people listed below, in the burial records of St Michan Church, Dublin, must surely be related to Peter Mathews who came to New York in 1692, in the "train of Gov Benjamin Fletcher. Unfortunately I have had little success in learning more about them.

      The Register of St Michan, Dublin 1636-1685; Berry, 1907; FHL 941.83 B4prs
      Benfletcher Mathews, who was driven out of Athlone; buried 7 Apr 1691
      Hugh Fletcher, son of Christopher Fletcher and Jane his wife; burial 10 Apr 1691
      Elizabeth Mathews, wife of Vincent Mathews; buried 7 Jul 1696

      Jo. Fletcher, christened 1 Aug 1675, St John the Evangelist, Dublin, son of Hugh Fletcher

      The Church of St. John the Evangelist was a former Church of Ireland church located on the west side of Fishamble Street in the centre of Dublin, Ireland. It was founded in the 12th century, and a great many of its parish records survive.
