He is the earliest known ancestor of this line in America. He is probably the same man of the name who was listed as one of the 77 passengers brought to Virginia in 1673 by Tho. Hall and Jno. Pigg, who received 3,831 acres for bringing them into the Colony from England. In 1689 he received a grant of 309 acres in Gloucester County, Virginia. The tract was located in Ware Parish near the headwaters of Craney Creek. He received a second grant of 92 acres in the same general vicinity in 1693. This particular tract had originally been granted to Thomas Jefferson in 1668 and subsequently abandoned by him. His name appears on the Rent Roll of Ware Parish in 1704/5. Numerous mentions of his name appear in the vestry book of Petsworth Parish which adjoined Ware Parish. He was paid in pounds of tobacco for carpentry work he performed on the church building between 1695 and 1708
