↑Richardson has Theodorick Bland's death as 23 April 1671. The Encyclopedia of Virginia (accessed 30 March 2018) has it as 23 April 1672, and shows Anne's marriage to Codd as "ca. 1676" with her death as "probably November 1687" (Richardson has November 1688). Duplicate profiles for son Saint Leger Codd had birth years of 1674 (now changed to 1676) and 1680. ~ Noland-165, 30 March 2018

Hi! For the February Magna Carta Project's Challenge (develop the profile of a Gateway Ancestor), I have chosen this profile.
Mary - please let me know if you are still active in WikiTree and would like to remain as his manager along with the Magna Carta project. (All profile managers should be active; because the profile is protected, a project needs to be manager. If I don't hear from you, I'll remove you as manager but you'll still be on the trusted list.)
Col. St. Leger Codd has ancestors Codd and descendants Codd. Assuming the ID#Cold-1 is a typo, and correcting ID# to be Codd, to conform to the tree and to Magna Carta Ancestry, Vol III, page 483-484. Adding sources.
