Index of Via Names on this Website

This is a collection of the names of all Vias identified as having been born before 1800.  Hyperlinks are provided to the source material located elsewhere at this web site.  Where various records are known to pertain to the same individual, they are grouped under that individual's name, and as such this page provides a personal chronology for many of the early Vias.  Where several individuals of the same name existed and the record may pertain to more than one such named individual, the name is repeated with the reference following.

Note that the entries from the Overseas Vias page have not yet been indexed on this page.  Only deeds that we have tied to a particular Via have been added to this page.

Special thanks go to Judy Maupin Pons for providing much of the information aggregation.

William Via

Judy Pons writes: One of the main factors I used to try and sort these William's out was if they could write their names.  Looking at past deeds, etc.  William Via, son of Amer signed his name.  He did so on a deed in 1734 in Hanover County regarding the Glass family.  He also signed his name in 1760 when he sold land to John Lankester.  This is the William (brother of Margaret Via) who bought 300 acres of land from Daniel Maupin in 1760.  On June 10, 1773 William Via Sr. and William Via Jr. sold two parcels of land (75 acres and 26 acres) to Charles Goodman.  William Via Sr. (son of Amer) signed this deed.  William Via Jr. signed with a mark.  William Via Jr. again used a mark to sign his will in 1782.

Also see a discussion of the distinction between several Williams of the 1700s.

William Via (1675)

William Vier along with 101 other persons was transported to Virginia by Henry Aubrey.  On October 4, 1675 Aubrey was awarded 5100 acres of land for transporting the 102 people.  Some of the other familiar names transported were Jno. Turner, Geo. Tomson and Mary Thorpe.
