Our Maryland Heritage, Book 3: The Fulks Families


This work is the third in a series of books about Maryland families. The author, already known for his works on the Fry, Hines, Hurley, Lowder, Maddox, Niekirk, Pratt and Walker families, now turns his attention to the Fulks families, whose name has been variously spelled Fowke, Foulks, Foulk, Fulks, Fout, Fouck, Fouts, Foltz and Fought, among other versions. Beginning with Fowke records from the 1400s, the book is designed to be an introductory look at the descendants of the Fulks families, being primarily an account of the descendants of Baltus Fulks of Maryland (1735–1806) and Gerard Fowke of Virginia (1606–1669). Chapter subjects include a second Gerard Fowke (1662–1734), Foulke family members of Delaware, Fulks families of Maryland, the Gloyd families (who intermarried with the Fulks family), William Fulks, Ignatius Fulks (1800–1881), William Robert Fulks, Fulks families of Virginia, and Fulks of Kentucky and Tennessee. The bibliography lists about a hundred sources used in the preparation of this volume, and the every-name index lists 2,000 or more names included in the book.
