WHO WERE THE GRANDCHILDREN OF 1.2 WILLIAM SPARKS, died 1709?<br>OF QUEEN ANNES COUNTY, MARYLAND

by Paul E. Sparks


<hr> <p>[<b>Editor's Note: 1.2 William Sparks, Sr</b>, who died in 1709 in Queen Annes County, Maryland, had four sons and a daughter. He named all of his sons in his will which was probated on October 24, 1709. His daughter (unnamed) had apparently died by the time the will was made, for only her son, <b>1.2.3.1 Charles Hynson</b>, was named in the will. (See the <a href="../php/view_pages.php?article=073-A">March 1971 issue of The Sparks Quarterly, Whole No. 73, for further details of the family of William Sparks, Sr.</a>)] <p>William Sparks, Sr. was an ancestor of a considerable number of persons across the United States of America. For this reason, we believe it will be quite helpful, as well as interesting, to our readers if we attempt to name his grandchildren, i.e., the children of his four sons.</p> <p>The first step we have taken to identify the grandchildren of William Sparks, Sr. has been to list all of the persons named SPARKS in early Queen Annes County who, by their apparent ages, could have been children of his sons. Fortunately, the early records of St. Lukes Parish furnish a sizeable list of births and marriages of persons named SPARKS during the period from 1730 to 1750. In addition, ten of the grandchildren of William Sparks, Sr. were named in the will of their father, John Sparks, who died in 1737. (See the December 1974 issue of the Quarterly, Whole No. 88, for details of this will.) Twelve other grandchildren were named in the settlement of the estate of their father, Joseph Sparks, who died in 1749. (See the September 1986 issue of the Quarterly, Whole No. 135, for details of this settlement.) <p>The following is an alphabetical listing of the thirty-five probable (and known) grandchildren of <b>William Sparks, Sr.</b> No attempt has been made to name any of the children of his daughter who married FNU Hynson. In the list which follows, we have attempted to estimate the probable year of birth. We have also included the date of marriage, the name of the spouse, and the names of children, where known.</p> <H1 align="center">Alphabetical List</H1> <p><b>Abigail Sparks</b>.
