    Notes 
    • It appears that there are three more generations of Havins that are fairly well documented. I have done none of my own research on these three generations so they are not included in this database. For the researcher that wishes to dig further here is what information I have:
      The parents of Thomas Havins were:
      James Havins born 1730 in Maryland and died 1782 in Virginia and wife Sarah Miller (1770-1850)
      The grandparents of Thomas Havins were:
      John Heavin born 1700 in England and died 1747 in England and wife Elizabeth Fettyplace
      The great-grandparents of Thomas Havins were:
      William Evans born 1676 and wife Sarah.
      You will note that James Havins was the immigrating ancestor.
      You will note that the English records spell the surname first "Heavin" and then later as "Evans."
