TAYLOR - I'm trying to locate information on a John Taylor who died in Prince George Co., VA in 1709. His will was supposedly written April 5, 1707. He had three daughters. One, Henrietta Maria, married my ancestor, John Hardyman. Another daughter, Sarah, married John Hardyman's brother, Francis. The third daughter, Elizabeth, married Henry Duke. I need to know if John Taylor had a son named John. I have reason to believe John Taylor owned a ship called "Henrietta" with John Hardyman. A John Taylor was captain for one leg of a voyage. The evidence shows it was not the father, John Taylor. The ship "Henrietta Maria" sunk in 1699 and has been salvaged. It's contents are on display at the Florida Archives Museum in Tallahassee, FL. Any help would be appreciated.
