Teage Joanes in 1649

Posted: 1123623048000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Joanes
That year, Teage Joanes was accused of sodomizing Richard Berry. When the sodomy charges were raised, Berry claimed that Joanes was also fornicating with Sarah Norman. In the interlude of six months between charges and trial, Berry recanted his accusation and Joanes was freed. The two men’s names reappear in court records three years later when they were ordered to “part their uncivell living together.”


I am not related to these people, just passing on this information, which comes from an essay titled "Wickedness Breaks Forth." The link for the site is listed below.
