( I have much more on this line, so contact me if interested...there is really too much to include).

    Margaret Doughty is the only known child of Enoch Doughty and wife, and married William Berry in 1742.  Her father, Enoch, was born in Taunton, Mass., soon after the arrival of his parents, The Reverend Francis and Bridgett Doughty and his elder siblings.....information on them and their families will be found on the Rev. Francis Doughty page.

    Enoch died at the  relative early age of under  40, and it is theorized by some that he may have taken part in Bacon's Rebellion.  His death, in 1677, could have been one of many, many  deaths that year,  results of injuries sustained in  the conflict.  Enoch's will also sounds that of a man thoroughly unhappy  with the area he lived in;
