John Bacon, son of Captain Edmund and Anne Lydall Bacon was born in 1683 in New Kent County, VA. He married first Sarah Langston who died 4 January 1709/1710. He married a second time to Susanna Park, son of John Parke.[1]

John patented land in 1701 that had been patented by his father Edmund in 1687, and John passed the plantation to his son Edmund, who was his only son then remaining in New Kent Co. John was sheriff of New Kent County and a vestryman of St. Peter's Parish, as his father had been. In 1707, John Bacon was ordered to assist in clearing roads in New Kent County.[2] He also served as Burgess from before 1727 until 1742.

1. Nathaniel, b. 14 Aug 1708
2. William, b. 30 Dec 1709, patented land in Henrico Co. in 1749 and was living there as late as 1788.

Hey really like this profile. But is Sussanna Park the son of John Park? I'd edit it but I get things messed up sometimes.

I'm interested in any documentation of john's marriage to Sarah Langston or any evidence linking John as son of Edmund Bacon and Ann Lyddall. I know the name lyddall was used for years as a first or middle name in subsequent generations, about the plaque in the church and that john repatented Edmunds land in 1701. Just hoping that there might be something else even more definitive that has come to light

Bacon-2663 and Bacon-2567 appear to represent the same person because: After Sarah Langston Bacon died, John Bacon msrried for a second time to Susannah Parke
