I.   Introduction.

 

In the following tables and elsewhere in the study, I provide the names of my ancestors who lived during the 1600s and 1700s in the Northern Neck of Virginia.  I also write on the history of the Northern Neck area.  I try to integrate what I have learned of my Northern Neck ancestors, their lives, into the history that I present.  A primary reason for this study is to learn more about my ancestors who lived in the 1600s and 1700s in the Northern Neck, what life might have been like for them, and how life then might have been different than living today.

 

This family history is a continuation of a previous family history that I have written on my eight great grandparents.  You can read what I have previously written by clicking here.  This previous history is also available on Amazon.  The history I wrote related to my eight great grandparents included ancestors going back to early 1800s.  Little was included on ancestors prior to 1800.  What I write below represents a continuation of my interest in my family history, concentrating on the 1600s and 1700s and on ancestors who lived in the Northern Neck during that time.

 

Much of what I write below on history related to the Northern Neck I discovered from an extensive Internet research.   I read and reviewed hundreds of websites and pdf files on the 1600s and 1700s history of the Northern Neck area.   I am trying, in presenting this history, to better understand what life might have been like for my ancestors.  One of the great benefits I have gained from researching my family history is a greater fascination and interest in history, especially that history which my ancestors might have experienced.

 

I also did extensive research at the Library of Virginia and the Library of Congress, reviewing dozens of books

 

In the history that is present below, I try to make comments on what life might have been like in the 1600s and 1700s related to the following topics:

 

  1. Demographics – immigration; indentured servants; slaves; Indians; etc.

  2. Nature – the landscape; natural resources; etc.

  3. Culture – people’s interests; activities; preferences; etc.

  4. Property – buildings; possessions; etc.

  5. Government – organizations; governance; laws; etc.

  6. Industry – agriculture; technology development; professions; etc.

  7. Economics – economic growth; incomes; etc.

  8. Security – conflicts; tensions; crime; etc.

 

 

In the discussions I present on the above topics, I try to include references to my ancestors where such references seem to enlighten and inform the discussion.  By doing so helps me to actually think about lives lived during the 1600s and 1700s.  I also, whenever it occurs to me, comment on how I think things have changed over time; how foundations, traditions, and customs then relate to later periods.  I believe that by making comparisons, and analyzing those comparisons between the 1600s and 1700s and now, help me to understand better the lives and times then, as well as now.

 

The tables below list my known ancestors who were born, lived, and/or died in one of the counties I consider to make up the Northern Neck (King George; Lancaster; Northumberland; Richmond; and Westmoreland).  Where known, dates and locations of births and deaths are provided for each name.
