Notes for SIR JOHN WILLIFORD: The trex to America begins with SIR THOMAS WILSFORD 9 Variously spelled as Wilford and Williford ) of Hendige, Kingston Parish, Kent is listed as the sixth recorded generation and on 27 June 1620. " He is listed as one of the " Adventurers " who paid 50 pounds sterling into the treasury of the Virginia Company O London. He lost his life and estates in " A quarrel between King and Parliament " ( backed the King ). But his second son, CAPTAIN THOMAS WILSFORD, " was one of the genuine cavaliers who came to Virginia ( The William and Mary College Quarterly, 1st Series, Vol VI, page 89)." On 10 November 1649 Thomas Wilsford, Gent., Patented 210 acres on Perry's Creek in Northumberland County, Virginia. There are many documents relating to his life in this area including the fact that he represented his country in the House of Burgesses. In 1676 THOMAS WILSFORD became an active participant in Bacon's Revolution. It is written " though a small man, Captain Wilsford had a grate heart and was known to be no coward. He had for some years been interpreter between the English and the Indians, with whose affairs he was well acquainted. By birth, he was the second son of a knight who lost his life during the quarrel between the King and the Long Parliament, which forced his son to Virginia." ( Peter Force, Tracts and Other Papers, Washington, D.C., 1836, No. XI, Pages 33 - 34 ). He was captured, and in October 1676, was executed for his part in the revolution. It is thought that Captain Wilsford had only one son, JOHN WILLIFORD. A son of Thomas Wilford ( Wilsford ) is mentioned first in December 1692 when Robert Driver sold Charles Driver a tract of land in Northumberland County, Virginia. " that JOHN WILLIFORD lives on." The assumption being that this land ( formerly owned by Thomas Wiliford above ) was confiscated. But that John had continued to live on the land ( Northumberland County was divided into two counties. One of these being Hamption County.
