LOOMIS, LOOMAS, LOOMYS, LOMES, LOA- MAX, LUMAX, LUMMUS, or LUMMIS :— Edward Loomis, Ipswich, 1658, came in the Elizabeth from Lon- don 1635, aged 27, but in the same month at London we find Edward Lummus embarked in the Susan and Ellen, aged 24, which was, thinks Savage, the same person, and playing a delusion upon the custom house officers. He had four sons, Jonathan and Samuel, who lived in Ipswich ; Edward, who went to N. J., and Nathaniel, of Dover; and a daughter who married John Sherring. See Lom- maks. Probably the descend, adhered to the spelling Lummus.

Here is what the Kimballs believe....[7]

Virginia Shearin Kimball born:1673 Surry county Va. Married Joseph Kimball born:1662 Essex county,Mass. Died Surry county,Va. Her parents unkown. His parents,Thomas Kimball,Haverhill,St.Edmundsbury Borough,Suffolk,England.Died May 3,1676 Bradford,Essex county,Mass. Married Mary Smith Kimball. Thomas Kimballs father was Richard Kimball.Mother Ursula Scott. Which came to Massachusetts from England 1634,with Robert Sherin.[8]

The Trans-Atlantic ships were all slavers, mostly between Barbados and the Gold & Slave Coasts, but plied the coast for some time to procure food for their future cargoes.  The following were involved: Supply, a captured French ship, serving since 1690 but sold at Barbados in 1693; Fauconburgh, under Francis Buttram coming from Barbados 1691-1692; Abraham Browne in 1695-1696 also bound for Barbados; and John Luke in 1697; Kendal, under James Funnel, 1691-16993; East India Merchant, under Thomas Shirley; afterwards under George Clay; Hannibal under Thomas Phillips bound for Whydah and Barbados, but forced to stop at São Tomé because of an alleged mutiny; John Bonadventure under John Zebbet bound for Little Popo and Barbados; Averilla, under Max Robinson, bound for Barbados in 1695, and captured by the French when returning to England; Adventure, under Samuel Shering, put down a slave revolt at Accra in 1695; Thomas & Elizabeth, under Benjamin Rawlings, a privateer bound to Barbados; Merchants Goodwill, under Charles Cotterell, in 1698; Prince of Orange, under Josiah Daniel, buying slaves and corn at Tantumquerry in 1698.[9]

James Shearin son of Samuel Shearin and Emily Haws or Howes. married Sophia Culpepper,1724 Gloucester Va. Sophia was born 1704 to Henry Culpepper Jr. and his first wife.[10][11]

Now after some investigation I find that The Shearin's, Kimball's, Scott's lived in and around this Culpepper co. Va. in the later 1600's early 1700's

Another early Shearin, is Elizabeth Lydia Shearin Smithwick.Elizabeth married Edward Smithwick before 1680.Edwards father was Hugh Smithwick b.1625 England.He married Elizabeth Windley.Hugh and his familymoved from Nansemond county Virginia almost due southinto northeast North Carolina,,then to Albermarle county. The location of the Smithwick landwas choice-bound on the south by the Albermarle Sound,on the west by Edenton Bay.When Elizabeth died( Edwards wife) died.He married again several times.Around 1701 he owned arouned 4000 acres.Edward sold the Albermarle plantationand was living in Bertie County Jan,21,1715 when he signed his will.[12] Also I found that Edward Smithwick paid for transport for John and Elizabeth Shearing.March 29,1680. This would make another John Shearing in exsistance way before the Joseph Shearing,father of John Shearing of 1710 Brunswick,Va.
