Several articles about the Harris family refer to George Alves: "Three William Harrises in Hanover County," by Malcolm Hart Harris in The VA Gen, Vol. 22, pp. 262-263.


Henrico Co. Record Bk No. 2, 1678-1693: At a Court held at Varina for the county of Henrico April 2, 1683; In the suite of George Alvis as marrying Alice the relict of Majr.

Indenture being exhibitted, and the orphn. present, and the Court thereupon conceiving the allegacons aforesd. not true, it is ordered that the orphn. serve his time, and that Mr. Lygon perform his part of the sd.

Nugent, Cavaliers and Pioneers, Vol. 3, land grants for transporting immigrants. patent Book No. 9, p. 268. Trans. of 21 pers...Among those listed were George Alves and Alice Alvis. Therefore, neither was born in America and George claimed land for himself and for Alice.

Wit: R. Napier, GEORGE ALVES
Signed Sam'll ( ) Burk Recorded 17 Aug 1730


GOOCHLAND -- formed from western HENRICO and lying on both sides of the James River and extending to the Blue Ridge. In the 1720s the area which was to comprise Goochland Co.had become a real "melting pot." Obviously, the bulk of the settlers had been there for some time, while it was still Henrico; but it also drew heavily from Hanover, Caroline, and the upper Middle Neck, as well as The Peninsula counties. Goochland's attractiveness was the fact that it was on both sides of the river. Bear in mind that rivers continued to be seen as economic life-lines. Tobacco remained virtually the sole cash crop, but it still had to be grown in large quantities to be profitable. It was measured by weight, but ease of transportation required that it take up as little volume as possible. It had long been packed and pressed into casks called "hogsheads," each weighing 500-600 lbs. An iron bar was
then inserted from one end to the other to serve as an axle. The hogshead was hitched to a team of draft animals -- usually oxen -- and literally rolled to the nearest waterway; hence the term "rolling road." Even above its falls, the James River had sufficient depth for fair-size boats, on which hogsheads could be transhipped.

Surnames: Alvis, Dabney, Ellett, King, McGehee and Slaughter
Classification: Query


"George Alvis married, in Virginia, Alice the widow of William Harris. He received a large grant of land in that part of New Kent, which later became Hanover County; and was a Vestryman of St. Paul's Parish. There is a record, in 1735, in Hanover County, that Jane, the wife of Martin Slaughter, Elizabeth, the wife of Samuel McGehee and Susan, the wife of Robert King, sold 288 acre to Isaac Winston, which they had inherited from their mother, Susan Ellett. The land was deeded to Susan Ellett by George Alvis, in 1688. It may be that George Alvis is the connecting link between the Ellett and the Dabney Families."
