William Cole b. 1598 Tillingham

+2 votes
[[Cole-70]] is protected by the Southern Colonies Project and appears to have serious issues. I have a resource that shows William Cole had only one child who died in Virginia and his descendants lived there for 100 years. See below. I hope someone can clean up this profile as it seems to mix two different people and has many children just added on with few sources.

According to research complied by John Frederick Dorman, Senior Fellow of the American Society of Genealogists, William Cole, a descendant of Humphrie Cole of Tillingham, Essex, England  who came to Virginia in 1618 on the ship Neptune had only one son, who was also named William (William).  William II was living on a 1350 acre plantation called “Bolthrope” near Elizabeth City, Virginia in 1671 and his descendants continued to live there for nearly 100 years. William Cole died in 1693 and was buried on this plantation. According to Dorman only two of William’s children survived to adulthood and produced heirs, Susannah and William III (William, William) who was born in 1691. <ref> Dorman, John Frederick.
