Where is  'Sollep'?

In the Beechland article, in our November 2011 Newsletter, the following entry was noted:

"In the book Old Albemarle County North Carolina Perquimans Precinct, Births, Marriages, Deaths & Flesh Marks 1659-1820 by Weynette Parks Haun, we find the following:

Original pg. 5 - Richard Elkes the son _ Roger Elkes & Jane his wife of the County of Sollep [possibly Suffolk Co.?] in Ingland & Ann Belliott the Daughter of John Beeliott & Bridgett his wife of North hampton County in Virginia weare Maried by Mr: Wood in Accomock County in Vergenia the 3d: of Aprill 1671"

One of the things I love about this project is how willing people are to help each other.  

Andy Powell read the newsletter and realized he might have a very interesting piece of the English Elks family puzzle. Here's what Andy had to say:

"If it helps researchers any, I can probably direct the English search for ‘Elks’ a little better…..

 

On Page 57 you refer to ‘Sollep’ and that it may be a reference to the County of Suffolk.

 

I would offer to hypothesize that ‘Sollep’ is a corruption of ‘Salop’ which is the old English name for the county of Shropshire.

 

It may be of interest to know that the Earl of Shrewsbury (Shrewsbury being the Capital of Shropshire), had a ship, the ‘Talbot.’  This ship took part in Drakes raid on St Augustine, the very same voyage which called by Roanoke to relieve Ralph Lane’s Military Colony.  At the time of the Drake voyage its captain was a Captain Bailie.

 

At the time the same ship took part in the battle against the Spanish Armada, she was captained by a Henry White."

 

It's odd how often these same colonist surnames resurface, again and again.  Of course, we don't know that they are connected, but then again, we certainly don't know that they aren't either.
