R2. The preface gives a history of the Hospital and
"In the summer of 1982 I chanced to enter the Church of St Brides in Fleet St., London. The church, built by Sir Edward Christopher Wren, had been damaged during the war and restorations were still going on; but in the basement of the church was an exhibition relating to the history of the church and of Bridewell Hospital with which it had a close historical associations. Bridewell was not a hospital when it was founded in the year 1553, but also a combination of prison, poor-house and school. Among the exhibits in the church basement was a photocopy of a list of children from Bridewell who had been sent to the American Colonies in Virginia in the 1620's. Inquiries as to the source of the document led nowhere as the Rector of St. Brides was a newcomer to the parish and was not responsible for the exhibition. Indeed, it
seemed unlikely that these records would still be in existence until, with the rector's help, it was discovered that the Bridewell Royal Hospital is still in existence and now located at Witley in Surry. Moreover it is still governed by the
Lord Mayor, Court of Aldermen and nominated Common Councilmen of the City of London, as laid down in its original charter of 1553. Correspondence with the Clerk to the Governors revealed that the Bridewell archives are not only still in
existence but contain the Court Minute Books dating back to 1559. Doctor Hume visited Bridewell in November 1983 and discovered that microfilm of the copies of the Bridewell records are kept at the Bridewell/Royal Bethlem Hospital
Joint Archives in Beckenham, Kent, where they are easily accessible. It was from these microfilms that the following names were copied."
There are about 500 names. The block of names where Edward VERE
is listed notes:
The following were all destined for the Barmothas/Burmoothas/Bermudas 27 May 1635
folio 46v; starts at entry 424 and goes beyond Edwards name on entry 451 folio 189v.
IF he came to Virginia later and IF he survived the trip.
Entry 451: VERE-Edward VERE sent in by Constable Epwell in Bredstreete ward taken in the watch is willing to goe to Virginea. 3 Aug. 1638. Copied from the records of Bridewell Royal Hospital.
R3. These tax records list Daniel Veres, also called Veares, and Veirse, having a smiths hearth in the years 1663, 1663, 1665, 1666, 1669, 1670, and 1671. Residing at the same time and place are Job Veares, William Veares, and John Vere.
This is interesting since I (Judy) believe the immigrants (Amer's) name to be William and the dates are just prior to the time William Vier was transported to Virginia. Also, some family legends have it that William (Amer) was originally a blacksmith.
R4. Job Vear Liber 15, Folio 454
This means that he was transported (passage paid by someone else) in 1677 and was able to take up land under the Conditions of Plantation. Under certain of the Conditions of Plantation, a servant was entitled to claim fifty acres of land upon completing his period of servitude satisfactorily.
R6. This book is a study of 10,000 acres donated by King William III to the French refugees who settled at Manakintowne on the southern bank of James River in the colony of Virginia in 1700. A List of Ye Refugees lists Jaques Voyes. He was one of 205 aboard the ship Mary Ann April 19, 1700.
R8. A list of 148 French Huguenots naturalized in 1705, including the name of John Voyer.A1. In the Appendix on page 220 is Amer Via listed with 50 acres of land in the New Kent County Rent Roll from the land held by her Maj in the Parish of St. Peters and St. Pauls. Anno 1704. The list has 100 people listed in the two parishes. That is a very small amount of people. The names included are such names as James Blackwell, John Brown, John Eperson, Edmund and Thomas Harris, William and Benj. Harris, John, Francis and Evan Jones, John Sandidge, Wm., James and Geo Turner, Edward Walton, Mary Webb. These people all lived inside the County of New Kent.
A2. The name "Matadequin" is the name of the
Creek that in 1706 was the dividing line between St. Peters's Parish and
the new St. Paul's Parish. The portion above the mouth of the creek
became the parish of St. Paul's Parish. The land
procession returns made for the 14th day of March 1708/9 reveal the men named as in the 1689 processions now in the jurisdiction of St. Paul's Parish. The overseers of the precinct #27 were Amor Viah and George Turner, in the company of James Blackwell,Sr., Robert Thompson, Edward Burnett, John Howard, and George Jones. The Order had named the lands as those of James Blackwell Sr., George Turner, Benjamin Buckley, the widow Thompson, Gabriel Heath, John Barnet (Burnett), and Amor Viah. The 1732 return lists Wiliam Via, Edward Burnett, Robert Thompson, Blackwells, Turners, and Goodmans. These names are rather contant in the area. Robert Via also is listed with the Turner family, Burnett, Thompsons, Goodwins and other families in the book about the same time.
H2. This book has a good description of the thousand Huguenots who came from England in 1700, a three month voyage, food rations, etc. and arrived at Jamestown. Some went to Florida and some to South Carolina. 700 settled at Manakintown near the James River.

acres in Essex (Co., Virginia) which "came to him as heir at law of his
father" for th enominal sum of 5 shillings to William Roane of Essex, planter,
suggests a possible connection with the purchaser. In this deed the
grantor is described as of Baltimore County, Maryland, gentleman, and the
land as part of a tract of 5100 acres, patented Oct. 4, 1625 and again
Mar. 19, 1627 by Mr. Henry Aubery and as bounding on Hoskins Creek and

(The Robinson family was apparently from Yorkshire in England)
[The reason I included this entry is because it seems to tie Henry Aubrey in to England and in to shipping. Maybe we can look for more information on the ships listed.]
John Rea few entries. One entry on Webb describes land deserted by John Wray [may be Rea jvs]
John Rea was described as "Mariner" when he gets own land.
It doesn't appear Rea and Webb did much together.
