A List of the Agnatic Descendants of Samuel Givens
(b. Ulster 1667)
(Antrim --> Virginia --> Kentucky --> Indiana)
The arrival of Samuel Givens to America was very similar in both date and place to that of Robert Allan -- (From The Samuel Givens Family and Kin by Jane Tyler Craig Reichlein.):
``The Giveans family, including nine children, came to America from Antrim, Ireland, in 1735 along with the John Lewis Family and other Protestants from Northern Ireland, first to Pennsylvania. Then they made their way on foot to what became Augusta Co., VA, prior to 1738...''
(In fact these details are so similar to what we know of Robert Allen's emigration, one suspects it was the same party.)
I have borrowed from too many GIVENS genealogists to mention them all, but special mention should be offered to Phyllis Ewer, Amy Estes, Charles Goodwin, firstname.lastname@example.org, Richard Switzer.
I use a common numbering for both this Givens Descendancy Chart and the Allen chart. In addition to the descendants of Samuel Givens of Antrim and Virginia, I also show some descendants of Samuel Alexander Givens (1753 - 1833) of County Cork and Missouri Territory (my individual 15).
Variant spellings of GIVENS that I have seen include ``Gibbens,'' ``Gibons,'' ``Givan,'' ``Giveans,'' ``Given,'' ``Givens,'' ``Givings,'' ``Givins,'' ``Givvans,'' ``Gwins,'' and ``Jennings'' though some of these are doubtless misspellings or transcription errors.
