Homer Duncan's company report indicates that William's wife was with them. However, this seems inconsistent with emigration records. On the ship manifest for the Manchester, Elizabeth's name is struck with an accompanying note that read, "did not go," The words were also underlined. There is, with William, another child by the name Ann Geoyn (Gwynn), but her relation has not been determined and it is unclear whether she actually made it to the United States. She is not listed with William and William Jr. on the New York intake manifest
Surname appears on various documents as Gwyn, Gwynn, Gwynne, Guin, Geoyn, and Guyan.
