    Am interested in the identification of Sir Thomas Hewet recoreded as one of the Roanoke “Lost Colonists” in 1587.

    Do you have any idea how he might tie into the Hewets that you have identified?

      This is discussed in my mysteries page; see home page. I have no evidence that Thomas of Roanoke was a sir; I think that was a later guess. Is your family from Exeter? I might have some interesting info.

  2. Richard Youatt says:

    Yes… you can see the detail of the Exeter origins on http://www.youatt.co.uk.
    I have read (prior to this post) and with much interest your mysteries page on the Thomas of Roanoke page.
