  • According to author Kerry Ross Boren, Richard Boren was possibly transported to Isle of Wight County, Virginia in 1635 as an underaged son, brother or cousin of John [Boran-27] . Kerry also speculates that Richard might have been accompanied by unknown siblings, see John [Bowren-37]. This is a possibility since those under the age of 18 were not usually recorded.
  • Richard is first documented in 1654 when he receives a land patent for 650 acres near the Occoquan River in Stafford Co., Virginia. Later he patented 1,000+ acres in Cecil Co., Maryland, known as "Boren's Forest". Author Boren does not reveal in great detail where these patent records might be found by other researchers, some of which have been damaged, others lost or destroyed.

  • I suppose DNA testing might eventually show if these ancestral lines, Boren, Bowren & Boring are cousins or not.
  • Richard's surname is spelled a variety of ways on documents; Bouren, Boreing, Bowren and other spellings.
