Jone / Joan / Jane Gray (also Graye)

Jone was born about 1618 in England. Her age was recorded in the Virginia muster of 1624 as six-years-old arriving with her father who was Thomas Graye. The ancient planter is said to have arrived on the Starr, which sailed in 1608.[1][2][3]

The family (Thos., Margrett, Joan and William), is listed Jamestown census of 1625[4]


About 1618 in England.


Her father is Thomas Graye, ancient planter, who immigrated in 1608. The identity of her mother is unclear. Based on documentation, it's either Margrett or Annis. Her only full-blooded sibling is William I Gray, who died young (not to be confused with William II, who married Elizabeth Jarrett). Note: Other records show immigration as 1624 when Jone was 6.[5]
