Where did WE come from?

A high percentage of our ancestors were "Cavalier" families who settled in the Northern Neck of Virginia in the early days of America. They were loyal to Charles I and Charles II of England. Many came to the Northern Neck between 1630 and 1700.

From a geographical perspective Lancaster, Northumberland, Westmoreland, Richmond, Old Rappahanock, King George, Stafford make up the Northern Neck of Virginia. From a family history perspective we must include: Fairfax, Loudoun, Prince William and FAUQUIER Counties.

    Our goal is to plot the families of the Northern Neck whose origin in England we know and plot them on a map of England. If it is true that families moved together we may find other ancestors who came from the same area in England. Can someone help me do this?

  • BALL, William Bark Manor, Barkham, Berkshire, England born 1614-1615
  • BUCK, Richard Wymonham, Norfolk, England born 1582

  • MOTT, George Scotland or England

    For many reasons, several families from the Charles Co., Maryland area became to migrate into Fauquier Co., Va. during and after the Revolutionary War. The Maddox family was one of those families. One possible explanation was the relative lack of combat opportunities during the Revolu-tionary War in Charles County and St. Marys' County Maryland at that time. Many of these families migrated to central Kentucky before 1815..Kitty Foster
