b. 1574



John of Chester, Cheshire Co., Eng, was ancestor of Joseph Maddock, founder of Quaker Wrightsboro Colony in GA, 1769

For a narrated and documented website on these ancestors, go to \

I am grateful to this English researcher who included actual ancient document transcriptions on her website.


See also the story of Joseph and his quest that ended in establishing Wrightsboro Colony on this website under “Famous Maddoxes.”


On this website under “Origins-English ~ Cheshire,” the first-known Madoc was b. there c.1230, and had a son Madoc.  Another was Madoc de Carpenter, son of Richard, who was Sheriff of Chester with the same power as the mayor.  

Madoc was a common name in Cheshire County, and several have been found born in that century and later.


Currently, I am searching for someone of this line still carrying the Maddox/Maddock surname to do a simple saliva-swab DNA test

in order to help other people who descend from this line who do not yet know they do.
