Name: William /Irby/, Jr, MD


HE IS THE PROGENITOR OF ALL WHITE IRBY'S IN AMERICA. HE WAS BORN IN ENGLAND BUT NO RECORD HAS BEEN FOUND OF HIS ARRIVAL HERE OR HIS MARRIAGE SO HIS WIFE IS UNKNOWN. IF YOU FIND HER, YOU WOULD PROBABLY BE BEATIFIED BY THE REST OF US. From an e-mail from dated06/28/2002. THE IRBYS. . . . . .By Faye Royster Tuck WILLIAM IRBY, born circa 1640 in England, probably London, was one of the first Irbys to come to Virginia. In June of 1665 in Charles City County court there had been an encounter between CAPTAIN EDWARD HILL who was not liked and DR. WILLIAM IRBY, both of Charles City Co. The encounter had to do with DR. IRBY going to see a child who was very ill, near death, and a horse that belonged to DR. IRBY. JOHN ROCHIE alias JOHN ROYSTER born 1639 in London, England, in parish St. Christopher Le Stock, gave a deposition in court about this encounter, Royster said, 'Words were passed between DR.IRBY and CAPTAIN HILL and IRBY called for his sword and ROYSTER said he took hold of the sword and told him to be civil. IRBY answered that he would not be uncivil but only to defend his horse. Many depositions were made in this court case. It is the one of the few court cases that have survived because Charles City County was a burned county. During the Civil War the Yankees went into the courthouse and took the books and loose papers and burned them. From an e-mail from dated12/22/2002
