Note

Note: No ancestry of Edward Coffey is known. He came to Virginia as an indentured servant. An extract of his Will follows:
Will of Edward Coffey - "being in bedd of sickness". Dated 14 Feb. 1715/16 - Probated 20 Nov. 1716. To two sons, John Coffey and Edward Coffey, all land to be divided equally, at 16 if their mother is dead, otherwise at 18 yrs. To daughter, Marther Coffey a cow at 16 or her mother's death. To son John a cow. To wife Ann Coffey the balance of personal property. At her death to be divided equally between "my six children-John Coffey, Edward Coffey, Marther Coffey, Ann Coffey, Austes Coffey, Elizabeth Coffey." Signed Edward Coffey, Witnessed by Sam'll Edmondson and Thomety Seleven. Rec. 20 Nov 1716.
Note: #N7
Note N7
Edward apparently came to Virginia as an indentured servant to William Moseley. Some sources give his birth in Virginia as the son of John Coffey (Born in Ireland) and Mary Jolliffee. The Coffey Cousins Clearinghouse (Jun 2000) has extensive discussion of this and the lack of proof for this relationship.
