      Dear Sharon,
      In 1689 on St Helena JOHN KNIPE complained that Bridgett Coales the woman he was engaged to, was messing around with a butcher from the ship Modena. She compared Knipe to " an old dog of her fathers". For this insult an breaking of a marrage contract Bridgett was fined �15 damages.
      In 1691 Bridgett married Matthew Bazett my Gt gt gt gt gt....Grandfather.
      I also have a record of a Mary Knipe marrying Thomas Bazett in 1769.
      I hope this has been of some hope to you.
      Best regards Barry.

      My GGG Grandfather Samuel Knipe came from the Island of Saint
      Helena. He was born abt 1780. His mother was Anna Penelope (Legg)
      Knipe. Don't know his father's name. He  had a sister Mary who
      married Joseph Henry Fisher 30 Mar 1835 in Capetown, So. Africa.
      Samuel came into Boston Harbor as a young man and never returned to
      Saint Helena.  Can anyone help  with more info?  Thanks in advance.
