Notes for Godfrey (Spouse 1)
Godfrey Hartsfielder is known to have been the son of Jurian and Margaret Hartsfielder on the basis of a land transaction:1004

In his The Hatfield Ancestry (1996) Dr. Galen R. Hatfield notes:

Sometime between 1689 and 1690, in the first registered Germantown land transaction (parcel A) , Jurian sold his Germantown estate and 75 acres in Krisheim to Andrew Griscom” … and “In February of 1701, ‘Godfrey Hartzfelder son and heir of Julian Hartsfelder’ confirmed in a deed his father’s sale of 150 acres in Germantown to Andrew Griscom”

The document on which this is based proves definitively that Godfrey was a son of Jurian, and it also makes possible an estimate of the approximate year in which he was born. That is, he must have been an adult who had just recently come of age when he signed it, thus making his year of birth about 1680. This would establish his age as approximately sixty-three years when in 1744 he moved from Maryland to North Carolina (see below), so it is not likely that he would have been born before 1680. Taken together these facts prove that Margaret Hartsfelder, who is known to have been the wife of Jurian (Görg) Hartsfelder at that time, was his mother.
