1642 --- Francis England -- 746 Acres -- Isle of Wight County, Virginia -- June 20, 1642 -- Patent Book: 1 Part II, page: 857 -- Transportation of 15 person: Robert Hill, Mary, his wife and Sarah England were three of the fifteen. ----- SEVENTEENTH CENTURY ISLE OF WIGHT COUNTY, VIRGINIA, by John B. Boddie, 1973, page: 669.

Research Notes


Birth given as "Northumberland, Kent, England" and "Kent, Northumberlandshire". Kent and Northumberland are nowhere near each other.[2] Perhaps Northumberland County, Virginia was meant, but they supposedly married before immigrating to America.
Death given as both Isle of Wight County and Surry County. In 1682, both counties existed, and are adjacent:
  • Isle of Wight County - name changed from Warrosquyoake County in 1637[3]
  • Surry County - formed in 1652 from James City County[3] (one of the four original incorporations and, in 1634, became one of the eight original counties)[4]

Webb-22465 and Webb-13 appear to represent the same person because: These were set as rejected but the profiles for Robert Hill (attached as their husband) have been merged. These should too.
