Illustrious Bennington, Vermont Robinsons

What makes this family so interesting to me is that they married into the Fays who came from France and were Huegenots, or Protestants that was outlawed and they had to move to Wales. From there they came to America on the Speedwell, only much later than the original trip of 1620 with the Mayflower. Several Fays married Robinsons of the same family. Our oral history is of coming from Wales and coming not on the Mayflower but a ship after that. Bennington, Vermont was the center of politics and activity. What a great town to be from.

The Fays are illustrious in history and connect to the Bush family. from their website: Look at : Captain Steven Fay (1715 - 1781), owner of the Revolutionary War Catamount Tavern in Bennington, Vermont. Sergeant John Fay (1734 - 1777), who fought and died in the Battle of Bennington, August 16, 1777 (the turning point of the Revolutionary War). Dr. Cyrus Fay (1778 - 1839), inventor of the forceps for extracting teeth and progenitor of the current day French and Tahitian Fay Family, George Herbert Walker Bush (1924 - ), 41st President of the United States, and his son George Walker Bush (1946 - ), 43rd President of the United States.
