Saint George of England RICKETTS Maryland State Flag Missouri State Flag

My Ricketts family line was from the Isle of Wight.
In 1642 Edward Ricketts arrived in the USA followed by Frances Ricketts in 1650. Both Edward & Francis are believed to have been brothers. History says, there was also a William Ricketts who immigrated to Maryland in 1654 where he made his living as a farmer.

Please Email me if you have information connecting these lines.
I pick up my direct connection to the Ricketts line below.

Together they had 9 Children that I know of.
