I've been down a rabbit hole for a while, but it's been fun. Wrapping up the profile for John Arundell, I'm confident about who he is: son of Peter, 18-year-old passenger of the Abigail, fit for carrying on his father's silk works & living with the Hamptons in Elizabeth City in 1624/5. It is logical, to me, that he is the same John who is listed by the Jamestowne Society as a qualifying ancestor because he was a burgess for Elizabeth City in 1633. But then Shirley wondered why Peter wasn't the qualifying ancestor. Hmmm... could it be that the Jamestowne Society doesn't have pre-1633 info for him? And, if he is a qualifying ancestor, who were his descendants?
Anyone have any ideas/leads for
- who he married/when and who his children might be?
- how to show Peter's son who immigrated in 1621 is burgess in 1633 (or not).

Arunell, John - A211; Elizabeth City Co.: 1633 (Burgess).
I can't find anything else about him.
