Perkins, this information IS NOT CORRECT, as far as the first recorded Perkins to come to America? I was John Perkins married to Judith Gator-Perkins. John was born in Hillmorton, England in 1609 and with his wife, 3 sons and 3 daughters immigranted to the Americas in 1631 aboard the ship LYON. According to Footnote.com (now named Fold3.com). passenger list. John died in Ipswich, Mass in 1686. He was related to four kings of England, John lackland, Henry III, Henry II and King Henry I.
Jerry you are so correct. That's my family line. My aunt (before she past away in 2010) gave me a website to check out. http://freepages.folklore.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~perkins/folklore.htm I found it interesting.
