I found this on the Lincoln County, NCGenWeb site. Robert A ABERNETHY was born in 1624 in Scotland. He died in Jan 1685 in James River, Prince George Co, Va. Robert was one of 1610 prisoners of war shipped to America by the year 1652, and arrived in Jamestown, Va where he served 4 years as an indentured servant. He appears to have been on the losing Scots side against Oliver Cromwell's English Roundheads in either the battle of Dunbar on Sept 3, 1650 or the battle of Worcester on Sept 3, 1651. The losing Scots were lead by Lord David Leslie. The final battle took place at Worcester, England by the river Severn, and resulted in 3000 dead Scots and up to 10,000 prisoners. Some information on Robert came from these sources: "The Robert Abernethy Family" by Arvord M. Abernethy "Abernethy Family in Scotland, Virginia and Alabama" by Thomas Perkins Abernethy Parents: George Abernethy DE BARRIE. He was married to Sara Cabbigo (CUBISHA) in 1657 in Bristol Parish, VA.

SIMPSON - In a 1733 land patent, my ancestor John Simpson acquired land in Spotsylvania County that he later conveyed to some of his children. The patent refers to him as "John Simpson of Prince George County," but we have reason to believe that he was actually the same John Simpson who was living in *King* George County at the time. Therefore, I would like to determine the likelihood of the word "Prince" in this patent being a clerk's error (yes, I have seen a facsimile of the original patent, not just a transcription or abstract). To anyone who has researched in Prince George County, or who owns a Prince George County resource: Was there a SIMPSON family in Prince George County around 1720-1740? Thank you very much.
