Is there a project for The 8 Virginia Shires- particularly the 3 Creeks area?

Hi I am new to the Tree House.  My profile is Huckeba-3. Please excuse any missteps since I am still learning the protocol for the group.

Since October, I have been building my WikiTree one person at a time. I have been a genealogy researcher for 11 years now. My work so far is 12 trees total; including genealogies I have done for families other than my own. I also enjoy World History and World Cultures.

 I have "found" Huccaby [various spellings] ancestors who came from Devon as Planters for the London Investment Company- the Virginia Colony. During my research I noticed there are gaps in ages between generations. Since there are these gaps of information I cannot substantiate, I cannot add these individuals as relatives to the correct person, although I'm certain they are related because of the place and dates. I have many documents already and hope to find more sources to firm up my research and fill in the generation gap.

I wonder if there is already a project for the Virginia settlers that arrived ca. 1630? I am especially interested in the " Three Creeks" area of Virginia.

I'm from Virginia but never heard of three creeks.  Where is it?
Hi Wanda,

On old maps (ca. mid 1700s) show 3 Creeks @ Brunswick County VA- Granville NC Area. I  have a land grant document for an ancestor that refers to 3 Creeks.

This is a map from Dave Rumsey's collection that shows 3 Creeks.

Hello,  There is also a Three Creeks area in Southampton, formed from Isle of Wight in 1749, but it was not settled until about 1695-1705.   If you go to the Virtural Jamestown site (www.virtualjamestown.org) you can find all the people from the muster (census) of 1624.  From 1624 to 1630, I am not sure where to go.  But I recall it has been said that during period new settlers immigrated at the rate of about 1,000 per year.  Good luck.

Thanks Joe,

It is good to know  about Southampton. I don't believe my ancestors settled in Jamestown.  I know about the 3 Creeks because it is mentioned in several legal documents with their names.
