    My immigrant ancestor first came to Long Island,
    New York. His name is William (Kent) Frampton.
    I know he worked and later owned ships. Also, was
    a Quaker indentured to a ship owner. I am searching for any information about him. Can you
    help me? I will appreciate any help you can give me.
    Thank you so much. I am excited about reading from your site.

    I too am a decendant of William Kent Frampton and have done a lot of research on him but never found him to be a ship owner or indentured on a ship. Now that doesn’t mean that he wasn’t but I just haven’t found it.
    He was a Merchant in Philadelphia and was supposedly a close friend of Wm. Penn and was also a beer maker. He was also an inventor. He died at the young age of 33. He left a wife with three small children.

The year 2009 marks the 400th anniversary of explorer Henry Hudson's voyage to New York State and the river that bears his name. Check out the links below for more information about Dutch New York and happenings in and around the state during New York's quadricentennial.
