Facts on the Amazeen family, like that of the Yeaton family, had proven to be elusive. Then fellow
researcher Carloyn Depp sent along her well-researched GEDCOM of the Amazeen family -- not only filling in
the line between Jane Amazeen and the patriarch John, but adding considerable well-researched information
on all siblings as well as other families which married into the Amazeen clan. She also cites the good
work of Charlie Gale and Norma Karram in piecing this family together. Norma Karram has since contacted me
to let me know that the work I have credited to her is actually the work of Glenn R. Bailey and the other
Trefethen Roundtable researchers. Let's hear it for an excellent Amazeen research community!
As such, here is the corrected research on the Amazeen family.
Note the story of "Lithobolia..." which is related on John Amazeen's page. What at first
seemed to be a notation of an odd, supernatural incident in one of Ms. Depp's sources is actually the
tip of the iceberg in a story of land disputes, witchcraft accusations and -- it must be admitted -- an
incredible series of supernatural incidents at the home of John Amazeen's neighbor George Walton.
The tale involves John Amazeen and the Walford family and may have ultimately had some influence in the
Salem Witch Hysteria of 1692. It is a remarkable story.
The American Amazeen family appears to be similar to the American Odiorne family in that all Amazeens are
descended from one patriarch. Thus, everyone with a New World Amazeen in the family is related. Name
variations in the records on the Amazeen name include: Amaseen, Amazean, Amazeen, Amenseene, Amensene,
Amenteene, Amicene, Amosen, Amoseen, Amusseen, Ammazeen & Ammisoone. Perhaps knowing these variations will
assist in further research.
