STARTING IN FAR AWAY PLACES LIKE ENGLAND, SCOTLAND AND IRELAND, THESE ANCESTORS, AT ONE TIME, HAD A MAJOR PRESENCE IN VIRGINIA, NORTH CAROLINA, AND THE COUNTIES OF HENRY, HAYWOOD, AND WILLIAMSON IN TENNESSEE.

THE FIRST DOCUMENTED DANCY IN THE COLONIES WAS JOHN. HE SAILED FROM LONDON AND LANDED AT JAMESTOWN, VA IN 1621. SAILING ON THE SHIP 'GEORGE', AT THE AGE OF 19, HE WAS INDENTURED TO THE SHIP MASTER FOR THE FIRST TWO YEARS OF RESIDENCE IN THE NEW FRONTIER.  WHILE FEW VIRGINIA RECORDS EXIST PRIOR TO 1833, THIS JOHN DANCY DOES APPEAR IN  RECORDS RELATING TO LAND OWNERSHIP AND THE COURTS. IT IS BELIEVED HE SPENT HIS ENTIRE LIFE IN THE CHARLES CITY COUNTY, VIRGINIA, AREA. IN ADDITION, MANY OF THE FIRST  JOHN'S DESCENDANTS REMAINED IN THE CHARLES CITY AND DINWIDDIE COUNTY AREAS.
