My Notes On This Group: The Roman Empire was the first to use troops all over the world they left blood groups ever where they went from Countries of Africa to England: The Roman Empire was one of the VAST spreading Empires in the World to first use troops of other Countries it conquered. The use of using other troops from Conquered Countries spread with each developing Empire.

Teal is being used for Quaker dates, these are not the same as the Julian Calender for all the other information, these need to be transcribed to be used in a Julian Calender.
Quaker dates have not been translated Before the 1752 calendar change, the first month of the year was March. From: Mary E. Stewart
In 1752 the new year began to be counted from Jan 1. Before that it ran from March 26-March 25, Julian Calender changed. So a date in July 1750 would be earlier in the same "year" as one in Feb 1750 (which once 1752 rolled around, would be thought of as the next year). From: Barbara Schenck
Haplogroup E1b1b1: This lineage is estimated to have originated in north-eastern Africa about 23,000 years ago.

The Richard Johnson below came to the Colonies as the Servant of William Farrar. Richard Johnson owned properties in Bermuda Hundred and Neck of Land. He had a wife Elizabeth Johnson and son Francis Johnson who he transported in 1639 to the Colonies. William Farrar Attorney is reported to have been christened on Apr 28 1583 in Croxton Parish, Lincolnshire.
The reported Father of William Farrar is John Farrar born 1548 in Ewood, Halifax, Yorkshire, England, and died May 1628 in Croxton, Lincolnshire, England. The Family coat of arms is found in College of Arms; Bretton, "Heraldry in the Halifax Parish Church:" Harl. Soc., Visitations of Hertfordshire, p. 53) Mother is reported to be Cecily Kelke, born before 1552 daughter of William Kelke and Thomasine Skerne and they married Aug. 26, 1574 at St. Sepulchre's Church without Newgate, England,. They lived at the Manor of Croxton, Lincolnshire, only about five miles from Barnetby, home of the Kelkes. William Kelkes mercer of London, off Christopher Kelke of the Manor of Barnet-by-the-Wold, Lincolnshire, and Great Kelke, Yorkshire.
Of Note is John Farrar’s will in May 28 1628: John Farrer, the elder of London, Esquire, of parish of St. Mary Aldermanbury Parish.
Alos of note is one Nicholas Ferrar, he is widely associated with the parish church of St. Sythes and his portrait, by Janssen, is to be seen at Cambridge in the Master's Lodge at Magdalen College. This is where we believe the Rev. Edward Johnson was educated at prior to coming to the colonies
All of the Farrars are descended from the de Ferriers who came to England with William Conqueror in 1066, and then from the Ferris family of Leicestershire, England, descended from Henri de Ferriers, son of Gwalchalme de Ferriers, who was Master of Horse to the Duke of Normandy. His name is found "upon the Battle Abbey Roll". We do know that there was a Henry Ferriers who came with William the Conqueror to England from a town named Ferriers or Ferrieres in France. His descendants continue to possess the estate of Baddlesley Clinton, Warwickshire, England. The Ferriers were a distinguished family in England and France. The surname is originally Norman and means "one who works in iron", which could have been in any country. http://www.angelfire.com/al2/bcampbell/farrar.html
It should also be noted to Johnson researchers that William Farrar’s brother Henry Farrar was married to one Martha Woodward daughter of a John Woodward
We now know that William Farrar brought his servant Richard Johnson to the Colonies with him. Lets take a look at what we can find out about the Johnson families where William Farrar was raised in Lincolnshire, then lets look at Johnson families associated with Halifax Parish Church. The Johnson families associated with Parish of St. Mary Aldermanbury Parish and also Johnson families that might be associated with the Manor of Croxton. As these are known areas where William Farrar lived and frequented.
Professional researchers used such ancient manuscripts as the Domesday Book (compiled in 1086 by William the Conqueror), the Ragman Rolls, the Wace poem, the Honour Roll of the Battle Abbey, The ''Curia Regis'', Pipe Rolls, the Falaise Roll, tax records, baptismals, family genealogies, and local parish and church records to establish that the first record of the name Johnson was found in Lincolnshire where they had been granted lands by Duke William on his conquest of England in 1066. http://www.tripatlas.com/Johnson
Also of Note the name Johnson was found in Lincolnshire where they had been granted lands by Duke William of Normandy on his conquest of England in 1066. The Normans were commonly believed to be of French origin but, more accurately, they were of Viking origin
The surname Johnson emerged as a notable family name in the county of Lincoln. Many of the ancient and leading houses of the Johnson family name claim descendancy originally from the house of FitzJohn in Normandy, particularly that of one of the leading branches and oldest, that of the Johnsons of Ayscough-Fee in the county of Lincolnshire.
Sir John Walpole sold the Ayscough-Fee Hall to John Johnson in 1658 and his family stayed there until 1851. http://britannia.com/tours/lincs/swlinc38.html
1658: Dymoke Walpole's eldest son Sir John Walpole, sold the house to John Johnson
The Johnsons emerged from the neighbouring town of Pinchbeck, and bought the hall from puritan Walpole’s son in 1658. Rising through the law, they had wealth and learning and, by the early 1700s, the leisure to enjoy it. Maurice Johnson II, the second in a line of six Johnsons bearing the same Christian name to own Ayscoughfee, made an indelible mark. http://new.edp24.co.uk/content/PlaceinHistory/content/43AyscoughfeeHall.aspx
Ayscoughfee Hall, now a museum and tourist information centre, has a history dating back to early medieval times. In the past, staff at the Hall have reported feeling a ghostly presence around the rooms and galleries, which used to be home to the late Maurice Johnson and his family. http://www.bbc.co.uk/lincolnshire/unexplained/ayscoughfee_ghostwatch.shtml
Maurice Johnson, the antiquarian was the eldest son of Maurice Johnson and his wife Jane née Johnson of Ayscoughfee Hall, Spalding Linconshire, and was born at Ayscoughfee Hall on 19th June 1688. He was admitted a member of the Society of the Inner Temple on 26th May 1705, and called to the Bar on 26th June 1710. On 5th January 1709/10 he married Elizabeth, daughter and heiress of William Ambler of Holyrood House, Spalding, and by her had 26 children. Maurice Johnson's armorial bearings were granted to his great-great grandfather, Martyn Johnson, Lord of the Manors of Aunsby and Sutterton, by Cooke Clarenceaux, King of Arms sometime between 1567 and 1593. The water-bouget in the arms allude to the initials MJ, and this device is used on the tie of members of the Spalding Gentlemen's Society. Maurice Johnson lived chiefly in Spalding, following antiquarian pursuits. http://www.rogerparsons.info/johnson.html
Manor of Aunsby (Ounesby)
The manor of Norman by by Spittal was granted to the dean and chapter by Henry Beck, nephew of Bishop Thomas Beck, to maintain two chantries in Norman by church and one in the cathedral. (fn. 170) In 1324 a licence was granted for the manor of Aunsby [Ounesby] to be alienated to the dean and chapter, who were to find three chaplains to pray for the souls of Robert de Lacy, formerly treasurer of the cathedral, Richard de Rowell, formerly canon, and Hervey de Luda, custodian of the altar of St. Peter.
1346 the return is the same with the exception of the omission of Mumby and Theddlethorpe, and the addition of half a knight's fee in Claypole, a quarter in Stoke, a quarter in Ormsby, a tenth in Thurlby, three quarters, a fifth, and one fifty-fourth in Aunsby.

Of note is St. Marys and St. Nicolas Parish is currently associated with Spalding Lincolnshire
The Anglican parish church is dedicated to St. Mary and St. Nicholas and was rebuilt in 1294. (JB) It was originally a Benedicting priory, founded in 1051 by Thorold de BOKENHALE. It was extensively repaired and restored in 1865 and again in 1886 Anglican parish registers exist from 1550 for marriages, 1538 for baptisms and burials. http://www.genuki.org.uk/big/eng/LIN/Spalding/#ChurchHist
William Waynflete (c. 1395 – 1486), Bishop, born as William Patten in Wainfleet, was ordained in Spalding Parish Church on 21 April 1420, was appointed provost of Eton College soon after its foundation and founded Magdalen College, Oxford in 1448. On 11 October 1456 he was appointed Lord Chancellor of England [Ketteringham, 1995
Now getting back to a Time line on Richard Johnson servant of William Farrar
In 1671 Richard Johnson is with Thomas Johnson in Deeds mentioned in Gilbert Elams land deeds. I need to locate the deeds of Gilbert Elam in the era of 1671 as this will give us more details on Richard and Thomas Johnson. But it appears to me that Thomas Johnson is some sort of relation to Richard Johnson who was the servant of William Farrar.
The History of Gilbert Elams deeds is as Follows; 1671: Gilbert Elams lands were in Bermuda Hundred by Richard Johnson and Thomas Shippey, another land deed in 1671 show his lands by Richard Johnson, Thomas Shippey, Henry Lowin (Henry Lound), William Hatcher, Thomas Wells, Fox Slash, Martin Elam, Robert Bowman Jr and Martin Elam.
1674 and in 1676 Gilbert Elams Plantation is by William Hatcher and Henry Lound.
1679 Gilbert Elam Sr is in William Randolph’s distirict of Varina Parish Henrico Co.
1680 Gilber Elams lands is beside Edward Hatcher and Benjamin Hatcher.
1686 Gilbert Elam is in Henrico Co. Court testifying against Edward Hatcher.
1705 Gilbert Elam Sr. and Gilbert Elam Jrs lines in the deeds of William Byrd whose lands are also beside Philemon Childers, Henry Trent Powhattan Branch of Powhite Creek(disputed lands of Blisland Parish and St. Peters Parish where Edward Johnson is found), John Pleasants lands, Westham Creek, the lower French Lines, Jeremy Benskins lines, Abraham Mishew lines, Manchfeild Woodhouse Branch, Bowmans Lines in Varina Parish Henrico Co and the Poakashock also know as Shocco Creek (See Daniel Johnson’s deeds)
The Deeds below are to assist in locating where these Lands Richard Johnson owned on Henrico River might have went and who his neighbors were on the lands Ricahrd Johnson owned in Henrico Co. and where the lands and neighbors went to. As these land deeds seem to be first filed in Charles City Co and then in Henrico Co. Va.
The people that owned lands in this area will first be found in Henrico Co, then in 1655 era they are in Westover Parish and Bermuda Hundred. Later on in 1670 they are in Varina Parish and in Bristol Parish.
Present day City of Petersburg was originally formed as Fort Henry in 1645, renamed Peter's Point and then renamed Petersburg in 1733. Established in 1748, it was incorporated as a town in 1784 and incorporated as a city in 1850. Parent counties for the City of Petersburg were Chesterfield, Dinwiddie, and Prince George County. In 1784, the towns of Blandford, Pocahontas and Ravenscroft were added.

Nathaniel Tatum was christened on 18 Nov 1599 at Holy Trinity the Less Church, the son of William Tatum and Ellen Kirk who married on 3 Aug 1587 at St. Benet Grace Church in London. Holy Trinity the Less Church was an Anglican Church in the center of London, near St. Paul's Cathedral
1618/19 of 75
boys and 25 girls who were to go to Virginia. These children were 8-16 years
old and had been found "running wild in the streets" of London,
"sleeping under stalls", and begging and had been committed to Bridewell,
which served as a house of correction. They were mainly homeless waifs though
some were probably petty pilferers.
One of the ships that brought these children to Virginia was the "George" which left London March 1619 and arrived in Virginia
One account says that 3 brothers, Augustine, Lawrence, and Nathaneill Tatham sailed from Southhampton, England, on the Good Ship George in 1619 for America via Bermuda. In 1620 this ship landed in New Jersey where Augustine remained and Nathaniell traveled on to Virginia. Nothing is known of Lawrence except that descendants of Nathaniel sometimes gave their children the name Lawrence. [from Meadia Research]
From the Virginia Colonial Record: "So far as can be definitely ascertained, the first in America, Nathaniell Tatham, who immigrated to Virginia and settled in Charles City County." Nathaniel left England in March 1619 and after a 2-month voyage arrived in Jamestown, Va. in May.
Nathaniel was living in the West and Shirley Hundred and at Shirley Hundred,
Charles City (on the north side of the James River), and was in the muster, 22
Jan 1624/5. He was listed as 20 years old and having come to Virginia in 1619
on the "George."
In 1624 when he was 25 years old, Nathaniel Tatum moved from the north side of the James River to the south side.
When he was 39 years old, Nathaniel Tatum patented 100 acres of land in Charles City County on Appomattox River, 25 July 1638, for transporting his wife Ann and his daughter Mary Tatum. This would lead us to believe that he went back to England, married, had a child, and brought them to Virginia, giving him claim to a 100-acre tract of land. This land adjoined a 500-acre patent to him which he re-patented 4 Dec. 1641.

An Act of Assembly of 6 Jan. 1639/40 named Nathaniel Tatum, Cheney Boyce, and Anthony Wyatt as a "Viewers of Tobacco" for Charles City for the north side of Appomattox River.
Nathaniel was living as late as 27 Jan. 1675/6 when a deed of gift from Nathaniel Tatum the Elder to his grandson Nathaniel Tatum was recorded in Bristol Parish court.
19 Oct 1677: Christopher Robinson, son and heir of Christopher Robinson of Bristol Parish dec'd, sold to Richard Kennon of Bermuda Hundred, a tract of land called the "Neck" bounded by the land formerly sold to said Kennon, the lands of Nicholas Dixon, John Worsham and on Appomattox and Swift Creek.

Abraham Wood. In 1638 he was granted 400 acres in that part of Charles City County now Prince George-"50 acres being due for his own personal adventure, 50 for his wife Elizabeth, 50 for his son William, 50 for his son Walter, and 200 for the transportation of four other persons to the colony:" namely, Henry Fulton, John Govey, John Shaw, and Sarah Cole.

1638 May 14, Abraham Woods patented four hundred acres in Charles City, on the Appomattox River
The first appearance of Abraham Wood as a man, and undeniably the Wood of history, is in 1638, when, according to the identification just accepted, he was twenty-eight years old. From that time until 1680, the records have by assiduous patching of tiny fragments been made to give us a reasonably continuous, though by no means complete and satisfactory account of him. No record of the date or circumstances of his death has been found, and he passes from the stage as shrouded in obscurity as he entered it. During forty-two years of known active life he attained eminence as a landowner, politician, soldier, trader, and explorer. His position in each of these lines of endeavor was as high as the colony afforded, and the first adequate presentation of his life reveals him as, with the possible exceptions of Bacon and Berkeley, the most interesting and commanding figure of contemporary Virginia. http://www.newrivernotes.com/va/eta.htm

Fort Henry not only was an effective defense against Indian attacks but became a fur trading post and center of frontier life. It was the means of maintaining peaceful relationship between settlers and aborigines. Indicative of the regimentation of tribes along the James is an act passed by the General Assembly in October 1648, requiring "that upon any occasion of Message to the Cov'r, or trade, The . . . Indians doe repair to fforte Henery alias Appamattucke fforte, . . . at which . . . the aforesayd badges of striped stuffe are to be and remaine." Garrison forces were changed at times by order of the Assembly; county militia came at the call of the commander to march and countermarch and to practice musketry in the fields above the river; and rangers, beating about the country for roaming savages, made the stockade their headquarters. Here also came Indian chiefs, bearing gifts and trailed by retinues of their braves, some from distant tribes staying for days to trade and treat with Wood and to talk of the unknown country that lay beyond the mountains. They told of strange bearded men who long before had built their walled brick towns far to the south-richly dressed and wearing - glittering ornaments and red hats; of even stranger men, who wore long, dark robes without ornaments and told of the Great Spirit worshipped by the white men. http://www.rootsweb.com/~vadinwid/apamatica/ch1.htm
Besides Abraham Wood, several men connected with the area of future Dinwiddie deserve a place in history. The Walter Chiles who, with Walter Austin, Rice Hooe, and Joseph Johnson, contemplated in 1642 the discovery of "a new river or unknowne land, bearing southerly from the Appomattox River," and who in 1649 took up land near the falls of the Appomattox, had a career as interesting as that of Abraham Wood. In 1638 he was granted 400 acres in that part of Charles City County now Prince George-"50 acres being due for his own personal adventure, 50 for his wife Elizabeth, 50 for his son William, 50 for his son Walter, and 200 for the transportation of four other persons to the colony:" namely, Henry Fulton, John Govey, John Shaw, and Sarah Cole. Other grants, including the one to land now in Dinwiddie, were recorded in later years. http://www.rootsweb.com/~vadinwid/apamatica/ch1.htm
The colonists continued to be curious concerning the westward lands, though fear of the Indians for many years prevented discoveries. Upon the petition of Walter Austin, Joseph Johnson, Rice Hooe, and the Walter Chiles who seven years later took up land in the Dinwiddie area, the General Assembly gave "leave and encouragement to undertake the discovery of a new river or unknowne land bearing southerly from Appomattake river." The proposed expedition seems not to have materialized, however. So Abraham Wood holds the unchallenged distinction of exploring territory about which the colonists imagined much but knew little. http://www.rootsweb.com/~vadinwid/apamatica/ch1.htm
1646 March the Assembly provided for a fourth post, at the falls of the Appomattox, to protect southside Virginia and from which expeditions might be led against the Indians. "Fort Henry," as it was called, had a garrison of forty-five men. Its commander, Captain Abraham Wood, was to play an important part in the subsequent explorations. http://www.newrivernotes.com/va/eta.htm
1646 he acquired another six hundred acres in the Fort Henry tract, by special grant of the Assembly. http://www.newrivernotes.com/va/eta.htm
1646 Abraham Wood is first mentioned as a militia soldier when his rank was that of captain. http://www.newrivernotes.com/va/eta.htm
1646 Oct Be it therefore enacted that Capt. Abraham Wood whose service hath been employed at Forte Henery, be the undertaker for the said Forte, unto whome is granted sixe hundred acres of land for him and his heires for ever; with all houses and edifices belonging to the said Forte, with all boats and amunition att present belonging to the said Forte, Provided that he the said Capt. Wood do maintayne and keepe ten men constantly upon the said place for the terme of three yeares, duringe which time he, the said Capt. Wood, is exempted from all publique taxes for himself and the said tenn persons.'18
This fortified post remained the property and the home of Abraham Wood for at least thirty years; and there, doubtless, he died, leaving it as an inheritance to his children. He himself always called it "Fort Henry," but the station or the settlement that grew up about it was long known as Wood. http://www.newrivernotes.com/va/eta.htm

Abraham Wood was the pivot about which all the military and industrial activity at Fort Henry revolved. Before becoming the commander of Fort Henry, he had served as burgess from Henrico County. Though he did not stand for election as a burgess from Charles City until 1654, it is scarcely probable that he kept his fingers out of politics. For a time, however, he concentrated upon the exploration of unknown lands. http://www.rootsweb.com/~vadinwid/apamatica/ch1.htm
1655 Abraham Woods is described as "Lieutenant-colonel http://www.newrivernotes.com/va/eta.htm
1656, we find him petitioning the House that courts be held on the south side of the river, for the benefit of the inhabitants of the south side of Charles City County http://www.newrivernotes.com/va/eta.htm
1656 December he received his promotion to the colonelcy of the Charles City and Henrico regiment, by special act of the Burgesses growing out of the legislative investigation and removal of Colonel Edward Hill for misconduct as commander in the well-known affair at the forks of the Pamunkey, where the Virginians and friendly Pamunkeys were so badly defeated by the strange Ricahecrian Indians from beyond the mountains. http://www.newrivernotes.com/va/eta.htm
1671 Sept: Captain Thomas Batts, well known to the colony and, with his brother Henry, a patentee of large tracts of land along the Appomattox River; Thomas Wood, probably a kinsmzn of Abraham Wood; and Robert Fallam. Others in the party were one Jack Weason, supposedly Wood's indentured servant, and Perecute, a courageous and faithful "great man of the Appamattucks." Seven other Appomattox Indians, sent by Wood to join the expedition, overtook the party on the morning of the fifth day. The commission that Wood gave the leaders stated as objective of the expedition "the finding out the ebbing and flowing of the Waters on the other side of the Mountaines in order to the discovery of the South Sea." Fallam kept a brief journal, from which it is possible to trace the course of the expedition and to learn of happenings along the way.
The little party, all mounted, set out from the Appomattox village on the river opposite Fort Henry on the first of September 1671 http://www.vagenweb.org/dinwiddie/apamatica/ch1.htm
1674: a letter from Abraham Wood to John Richards in London gave the account of the events of that journey, including the death of James Needham. The journey of James Needham and Gabriel Arthur began in April of 1673 and ended, at least for Arthur, in June of 1674. The letter written by Wood was dated August 22, 1674 and was, for the most part, a retelling of the events Arthur described to him. http://www.saponitown.com/forum/archive/index.php/t-878.html
1676, Berkeley complained to the home government that Wood was "kept to his house thro infirmity," and that certain of the subordinate officers were either dead or for various reasons unavailable http://www.newrivernotes.com/va/eta.htm
1676 November 28 Abraham Wood was appointed by the home government a member of the special commission of oyer and terminer for Virginia, which was to settle affairs in the colony after Bacon's Rebellion http://www.newrivernotes.com/va/eta.htm
1678 Indian alarm of general supervision of all arrangements for defense was committed to "Major [General?] Abraham Wood," and all persons were warned to obey him
The last appearance is in a curious connection. For January 23, 1679/80, there has been preserved a tantalizing fragment of the council journal: "For insulting words to Major-- General Wood, forgiveness to be asked. http://www.newrivernotes.com/va/eta.htm
1680 March 18, Nicholas Spencer wrote to the Lords of Trade and Plantations that "Colonel Wood, a person well skilled in all Indian affairs," had been chosen by the governor and council to try to effect the desired arrangement with the hostiles. http://www.newrivernotes.com/va/eta.htm

1630, Governor Harvey made a journey to the site of the old iron works on Falling Creek, with a view to discovering whether they could be restored. He wrote to the authorities in England that all of the conditions of the locality were favorable to the reestablishment of the works; he sent over at the same time two specimens of ore from the vicinity. A few years later, Sir John Zouch and his son seem to have taken steps to establish iron works in Virginia, but the project collapsed on account of the failure of their partners to come to their assistance. The cost of reviving the manufacture of iron in the Colony was so great that practical interest in it died out for a period of many years.” http://homepages.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~george/johnsgermnotes/germhs80.html

Nov 1634 - Sir John Zouch, one of the Commissioners for Virginia, and a friend of Mathews, in November, 1634, visited the Colony where he had a son and daughters. Governor Harvey told the Privy Council that he was of the Puritan Sect." After remaining a few months, he and Captain Button returned to England.
1635 May 5 From Virginia Letter: Zouch to "his dear and loving father Sir John Zouch." Perceives that if the Governor (Sir John Harvey) could have done him any "dispight" here he would have pursued it to the utmost. Left one of the kine he was to receive for his father at Capt. Browne's. The Councillors and Burgesses for the Assembly have framed a letter as from the Burgesses and others to the Council, complaining of their manifold aggrievances, and desiring redress from them. The people of the lower parts met in such troops to set their hands to the letter, that it put Capt. Purify into an affright that caused him to write to the Governor of many incident dangers, insomuch that he durst not keep a Court until he heard from him or had a letter from his Majesty. Hereupon the Governor sendeth warrants for the Council, who, soon after they met, consulted about sending the Governor for England, but Capt. Browne went home over night, "a pain that he had in his belly excused him sufficiently," by reason he opposed the Governor as did the rest. Mr. Menefie absolutely refused his aid in arresting the Governor, alleging reasons that it was not fit to deal so with his Majesty's substitute. Menefie went not home as he said, but to the back river, where he debated with himself, desiring of God to confirm his resolution or abolish it; but the loss of his country striking in his stomack, at last he came resolved as the rest, where the Governor did arrest him of high treason for the words he spake against him at Kecoughton, Sir John Zouch then present; but the Governor had no sooner given Mr. Menefie the thump on the shoulder, but Capt. Utye took him by the middle and arrested him in his Majesty's name, the rest stepping and taking hold of him likewise, looking pale as did Kemp. The Governor refused to go till he saw no resistance, and then desired to choose a Deputy, who, though he spoke very mildly ever since, was denied; they meet (?sic) sending him for England with all that can object ought against him, himself residing at Little Town in the interim, forgetting and laying aside all malice formerly between them. Need not be further impertinent, presuming he will be acquainted with the cause shortly after he has wondered at Harvey's unlooked for coming. The Maryland men have boarded Capt. Claiborne, taking all his trade and trading stuff, bound his men and cast them into the hold, besides beating and hurting them in what manner they are not fully acquainted with, but hopes they will have a journey to Pacowomeeke. The country prayeth for Sir John Zouch, and generally wishes him to come Governor. His sisters and all friends very well. 3 pp. [Col. Papers, Vol. 32 No. 4.] Gov. Hareey, in a letter to See. Windebonk, of 3 April 1635 complains of "the preposterous haste" of Sir John Zouch to leave the Colony. In another letter to See Windebank of 14 July 1635, dated, from Plymouth, Harvey "execuses his coming from Virginia without license." See Col. Papers, Vol. VIII., Nos. 53, 73.

Five hundred acres of the land granted to Wood were included in the 1639 patent of Edward Prince. They had passed, however, to Thomas Pitt, probably because Prince had allowed his grant to lapse. In order to be quite just, the General Assembly further enacted that "whereas Mr. Thomas Pitt hath a former grant for the said land whereon the forte is built, As alsoe part of the said land hereby granted. It is thought fitt and enacted, That the said Thomas Pitt shall receive a reasonable satisfaction of the countrey for the same."

1720 Bristol had served the southern part of Henrico, the present Dinwiddie, and the western part of present Prince George. With the organization, however, of Brunswick from Prince George, a slice had been cut from Bristol and constituted a parish for the new county. Yet the ministers still stacked up considerable mileage in the service of their parishioners. It must have been quite a relief to the Reverend Robert Ferguson - rector in 1742 - when Bath Parish was created from the western part of Bristol. The Reverend George Robertson had been rector of Bristol from 1693 to 1740. Though the area soon to become Dinwiddie County lay chiefly in Bath Parish, its eastern quarter was retained by Bristol. The reason for the creation of Bath and the bounds of the parish are set forth in the following act :
Whereas the inhabitants of the parish of Bristol, in the county of Prince George, labour under great inconveniences, by reason of the small number of tithables in the same; and it is reasonable that part of the adjacent parish of Bath, in which there are a greater number of tithables, should be added and annexed to the said parish of Bristol :
Be it therefore enacted, . . . That from and after the first day of May next ensuing, part of the said parish of Bath, be annexed to, and made part of the said parish of Bristol; and that the bounds thereof, for the future, be established in manner following; that is to say, by a line to begin at Appamattox River, on the east side of Wallace Creek, thence a south course to Surry County Line; which shall always hereafter, be reputed, deemed, and taken, to be the bounds between the said parishes.
The early churches of Bath Parish were Sapony (1725-1726) and Hatcher's Run (1738-1740) both established in Bristol Parish prior to the creation of Bath, and Butterwood (built before 1762). These served major portion of the area that was to become Dinwiddie. Sapony Church was situated in the southern part of Bath, Hatcher's Run in the northern, and Butterwood in the western. Blandford (1734- 1737), now in Petersburg, was a church of Bristol Parish.
1727 AERA: Major Peter Jones considered the real founder of the city, already had a well established trading post there in 1727. His old stone warehouse still stands on Peter’s Point. The following were trustees of Petersburg beginning in 1762: Robert Bolling, Rodger Atkinson William Eaton, John Banister Robert Rufin Thomas Jones, Henry Walker, George Turnbull, and James Field. http://www.virginians.com/redirect.htm?topics&862
