The Taylor Family

 

1. John Taylor is the first generation of our Taylor line that I have researched.  He came from Lancashire, England and may have died in England or possibly in Virginia.  He had several children and married someone named Dorothy. He was born about 1600.

2. Andrew Taylor, John and Dorothy's son, married someone named Ann Jordan and they lived and died in Norfolk Co., VA. Andrew's will named several items and people as well as some grandchildren. 

3. Richard Taylor, son of Andrew and Ann Taylor, was the next generation. It is known that he had a sister but there could have been other children. They lived in Norfolk Co., VA. Richard had at least six children.

4. William Taylor, Sr., son of Richard Taylor, married Liscomb Jones, dt of Rev. Walter Jones and possibly a Miss Linscombe. They were from Maryland and Rev. Walter Jones removed to North Carolina as a missionary for the Church of England. William and Liscomb's daughter, Liscomb Taylor, married John Haddock, Sr. and they lived in Pitt County, NC. William Taylor Sr., was named in his grandfather's will and other documents of Norfork Co., VA.

5. William Taylor, Jr. was a son of William and Liscomb (Jones) Taylor, Sr. William Jr. married Dinah Deale, dt of Henry Deale, Jr. and his wife Mary Ballentine. The Deale family lived in Norfork Co., VA.  Dinah was named in her father's will and her father was named in his father's will. The Ballentine and Deale families lived near the Taylor family in Norfork. William Taylor, Jr., deeded land and cattle to Dinah's bastard child, John, and named her his wife and a Deale.  

6. Rhoda Taylor, dt of William & Dinah (Deale) married John Haddock, Jr. She married her first cousin. They lived in Pitt County, NC.
