- Traditional History
- Several versions of Markoe history. All written before the internet. Current research is directed at confirming what's been written in these traditional histories. Also included a look at the shipwreck tale. Many of these traditional tales have been assimilated as fact rather than grains of fact - which they no doubt contain.
- 1699 Early Caribbean Markoes:
- Begins with Jan Markoe Sr 1699 Dutch St Eustatius. ID's others at
British Spanishtown, Danish St. Thomas, St, Croix. Includes research by
Heather Nielsen from LDS transcriptions. St. Eustatius census 1699-1728.
- Calmeijer Dutch Research
- deals primarily with the "Dutch" Markoes. Source for an as yet
unidentified Peter Markoe who predates Peter born 1702. Mentions
Markoes at St. Maartens, Saba, Spanishtown (BWI) and Danish St. Thomas.
Rare information from Dutch records at the Hague.
- 1720-1777 British West Indies Markoe Land Transactions
- Sales and purchases at Spanish Town (Virgin Gorda). As these are from transcribed extracts they have not been put under Documents.
- 1727 Spanish Town BVI Allegiance Letter Spreadsheet
- Alphabetical list of those who signed letter. Cannot tell which Markoe, Crequi, Cunningham these are because all had Juniors
- 1736 Unhealthyness of Sta. Cruz
- British Governor Wm. Mathew discusses the problems caused by the settlement of St. Croix. This is eighteen years after a Peter Markoe at Spanish Town, BVI, had requested permission to move to St. Croix
- Markoe Locations
- Identifies two Caribbean
locations with the name Markoe. Identifies various plantations and other places they have been found:: Cooper's Island BVI, Anegada, St. Eustatius, St. Croix, Spanish Town (Virgin Gorda BVI), etc.
- To Arms!
- A collection of various Markoe crests. I do not "speak" heraldry so have not attempted definitions
- A follow-up to Father Markoe’s
1953 investigation in to the heritage of the “mixed race” Markoes that
tradition ascribes to Abraham Markoe, Jr., and his “consort Fatera”
- Unfortunate Markoe 1806 Demerary
- Possibly the first "colorful" Markoe found. He is identified as “possibly Marcou” and as a creole from a
well connected family on St. Croix.
Perhaps coincidence, perhaps not.
- Markoe/de la Marck
- A non-traditional take on Markoe
European origins. If true. From a line that that has not previously been connected.
- de la Marck Technical
- Census and other records to
support information in Markoe/de la Marck.
- As tradition states the Markoes
with the Creques this is a potpourri
of information regarding them during the Caribbean
period. Fascinating links to Boston
and Spanishtown, BVI, but no conclusions regarding European origins. Documentation for their association as early as ca 1708.
- Creques of Tompkins Co. New York
- 1890 article from "History of Trumansburg" that traces one of the supposed children of Francis "Frank" Crequi and Elizabeth Markoe and provides information regarding the earlier history of the family.
- Montbeliard, Franche Comte,France
- The Dutch genealogist M.R:H
Calmeijer attempts to identify the progenitor Markoe from Montbeliard, France. Did he succeed?
- An interesting sidetrack. Life and death in a foreign land and a roundabout way to go "home again".
- Mexican Markoes
- The "lost" Clifton Markoe line that's just now (2009) emerging. . Fascinating but far from complete. More to follow.
- Roger Fergus Ferrall.
- No resolution here but undoubtedly linked to the Markoes in some obscure way..
- Father Markoe thought he'd linked this line to living descendants on St Croix. He did but through the wrong line.
- Ryeberg St Croix Inhabitants Markoes
- A mish-mash of Markoe and related St Croix sightings. Fascinating but
not confirmed. This is source for Elizabeth "Ferrall's" marriage to
Mathias Ferrall. It also shows a rather interesting death date for the
Captain's first wife, Elizabeth Kenny. Also two Markoes who had land on
St. Croix earlier than others known.
- Margaret Markoe Duane letter to Mary Galloway Markoe 1882
- A great read! Castles! Moats! Fish with green bones! A visit to some noble relatives.
