Ignatius' father, John Barton Wathen was born 1651 and died before July 16, 1705, the son of Sir John Wathen and Mary Mullett. Sir.

John Barton Wathen "sailed from Bristol to Maryland Sept 10, 1670 on the ship "Francis and Mary" as an indentured servant of Hugh Thomas. [Records of Land Patents in the Hall of Records, Annapolis, MD. Liber 18 Folio 16.] He was a carpenter and was responsible for building the King and Queen Parish Church in Charles Co. (He requested payment and the bill was still due in his inventory). He originally lived in St. Mary's Co. and then Charles Co., near Pt. Tobacco. I believe he's buried there at St. Mary's Cemetery. His wife was Susannah -- I believe he had two wives and Ignatius was son of the first wife, Susannah Brayne, whose fare John paid in 1676, the year he married. Tradition states he married Susannah Hudson, daughter of Thomas Hudson and Ann Hill. I don't doubt that either..." Carol Collins.
