First Generation

1. JOHN PRICE I1,2,3,4 was born about 1584 in Wales.5 He died between 1628 and 1630 at the age of 44 in Virginia.5

The birth year and place of John Price came from the 1910 book written by Rev. Benjamin L. Price. This book is so fraught with errors, I'd doubt this record of the beginnings of John Price.

Wikipedia says for the surname Price:
A patronymic name derived from the Welsh "ap Rhys," meaning "son of Rhys." The given name Rhys means "enthusiasm" in Welsh.

Also ADVENTURERS OF PURSE AND PERSON perpetuates the idea that the land patented to Matthew Price as heir of his father John, was the land eventually inherited by his sons John & Daniel. It is now believed that Matthew had no issue. The two tracts, that of Matthew, and the tract later sold by John & Daniel, were not the same. Matthew had a brother John, missed by most researchers, who likely died at a young age leaving two small sons - these boys inherited the original patent of the immigrant John Price granted in 1619. Matthew received the matching grant awarded to those grantees of 1619 who had in fact cultivated and improved their land. It's possible these tracts did adjoin in some fashion.

John Price was about 27 years of age when he left to come to America. In The Muster of 1624, he stated he was aged 40 years and had come in the "Starr" in May, but did not state the year of arrival. A tabulation made in 1625 of the ships which brought passengers to Virginia showed that the "Starr" had come in 1608 and 1610. John Price sailed on the later ship which actually did not leave from Land's End England until 17 Mar 1611, arriving in Virginia on 22 May 1611. Under the old style dating the first day of the new year occurred on March 25, so the 17 Mar 1611 departure date was actually in the waning days of 1610. Two sisters ships, The "Prosperous" and the "Elizabeth" sailed in convoy with the "Starr".
Wife Ann was aged 21 having just come in the "Francis Bonaventure" in Aug of 1620. They had a child Mary, age 3 months. Provisions they listed were 2 1/2 barrels of corn, 1 1/2 bushel of peas, 5 lb. of power, 10 lb. of lead. 2 fixt Peeces [guns?], 1 suit of Armor, 1 Coat of Steele, a sword and a dager. 5 head of cattle, 15 chickens. They list 2 houses. - ADVENTURERS OF PURSE & PERSON VIRGINIA 1607-1624/5; Meyer & Dorman, 1987.

Immigrant Ancestors, by Frederick Adams Virkus, p.56
John Price (1584-1628). First time in the Starr to Jamestown, 1610. Lived on "ye Neck of Land, Charles City" 150 acres granted 20 Feb 1619, by Sir Geo. Yeardly. Member of Provincial Council. Married Mary (NO proof of any such wife - speculation!), married 2nd Ann who came in the Francis Bonaventure, 1620.

There were two ways to acquire land in the Virginia Colony - either by paying for it or for laboring for seven years, after which one received a dividend for 100 acres of land. A "headright" of 50 acres could be earned by paying for one's own way or by paying passage for someone else. John Price received 150 acres in 1619; the first 100 apparently through his indenture; the 50 acres possibly acquired by paying passage for someone. If the first land was planted, he could become eligible for a matching tract. Son Matthew received the matching 150 acres after the death of his father. [Henrico Patents 1623/43, p.551]. At the time Matthew received this patent, his mother and stepfather, Robert Hallom, were living adjacent the original patent.

In Appendix IV, p.527, of ANCESTORS AND DESCENDANTS OF JOHN PRICE, is a "Discussion of the Land Patent to John Price" written by Rupert Taylor, 9 Feb 1936 and found among the holdings of the VA Historical Society in Richmond. He platted the land of Robert Hallom, who married Ann, widow of the immigrant John Price, which was described as adjoining that of John Price - there is a sketch provided. Comparing this land with that of the land sold by Hatcher to Pleasant which had been sold to Hatcher's father by Daniel & John Price, sons of John Price, he determined this was definitely not the land granted to Mathew Price but the original land granted to the immigrant John in 1619. Comparison of dates was convincing that the said Daniel & John could not possibly be sons of the immigrant John, leaving the only conclusion that the immigrant had a son also named John that was their father. The three children and heirs of Robert Hallom, or their heirs, eventually sold the 1000 acres Hallom tract to William Randolph, each of these transactions further proving the location of the land of John Price.

There was a Indian massacre on 22 Mar 1622, killing 347 people of the colony of Virginia. John Price was a survivor of the massacre and listed as living in "the Neck of Land, Charles City."

The term "Ancient Planter" is applied to those persons who arrived in Virginia before 1616, remained for a period of at least three years, paid their passage, and survived the massacre of 1622. They received the first patents of land in the new world as authorized by Sir Thomas Dale in 1618 for their personal adventure. John Price is on the list of those designated as "Ancient Planter".
Order of Descendants of Ancient Planters is an incorporated non-profit society whose purpose is to honor and perpetuate the memory of the Ancient Planters; to promote historical and genealogical research; to inspire patriotism; and to enhance fellowship among those of similar interests.
The Order of Descendants of Ancient Planters was founded October 13, 1991 in Raleigh, North Carolina. Membership is limited to descendants of Ancient Planters. Persons unknown to members of the Society may submit the name of their ancestor with a letter of endorsement. An invitation may then be issued. An invitation is valid for one year from the date it is issued.

The book mentioned earlier, ADVENTURERS OF PURSE AND PERSON, is published by the Order of First Families of Virginia and for the most part traces the first four generations of descendants from the "First Families" who arrived between 1607 and 1624. Descendants of John Price are also entitled to membership in the Order of First Families, if they can prove their lineage.

This was also in 1625 but is a different petition transcripbed in the '"he Viginia Magazine of History and Biography", Vol. 15, No. 4, pp.360-363. This petition refers to a petition sent the year before by John Puntis concerning governing of the Colony, this one sent by Sir Geo. Yeardley.]

Royal Ancestry: John Price of Jamestown Exchange of 28 Mar 2004.
Paul K Davis:
Fellow Researchers & Family,
I have concluded that John Price, who came to Jamestown, Virginia in 1611, was a descendent of king Malcolm II of Scotland and of king Ethelred "the unready" of England. This John Price is an ancestor of my paternal grandmother, Dorotha Ellen Repass.
For nearly a century it has been claimed that this John Price was descended from barons who signed the Magna Carta, however some aspects of his ancestry have been the subject of divergent claims. I consulted GEDCOM databases made public through the internet and found quite a few discrepancies in what was said about who his ancestors were. I have compared these, eliminated those which could be disproved, and found one, by Jackie Watson, remaining. I have checked its conclusions using generally reliable library sources and citations of primary evidence, and concluded that it is indeed correct. I found that one line in this ancestry, when traced further, led to kings Malcolm II of Scotland and Ethelred II of England.
Below I present this line, with comments where it seems appropriate, followed by a list of the important sources.
John Price [1583/4 - 1628/30] was son of Richard Price and Ursula. John has often been listed as son of Thomas Price, vicar of St. Chad's in Shrewsbury, without citation of primary evidence, but comparison of his signature on a petition of the Virginia House of Burgesses with the signature on a Welsh indenture shows he was son of Richard Price, of Manafon, Montgomeryshire, and his wife Ursula. Close estimates from both sides of the Atlantic also agree concerning his age.
[The following isn't pertinent unless it can be proved conclusively that we are dealing with the SAME John Price on both sides of the Atlantic and there are conflicts in this lineage as well.]
Richard was son of Richard ap John Price and Elizabeth Herbert. Richard has often been listed as son of Richard ap John Price of Newtown, but there was also a Richard ap John Price of Glan Meheli, and Burke lists the Richard of Newtown as having died without issue. Furthermore, Richard the father of the "immigrant" [unproved] John Price is shown to have an association with the Glan Meheli branch of the Price family by common attendance of children at the same school in Shrewsbury. The above cited indenture shows Richard, the father of immigrant John, to have had a brother named Thomas, and the Visitation shows Richard ap John Price of Glan Meheli, to have had younger sons name Richard and Thomas. This Thomas is generally believed to be the one who was vicar of St. Chad's. While there is another Price family of Manafon, that Richard has a wife not named Ursula, and his son John evidently raised a family in Britain, not Virginia. Immigrant John was listed in the school records as son of a gentlemen, and the Glan Meheli family was such. Manafon is a bit north of Glan Meheli, and both are in the sector of Montgomeryshire which borders the portion of Shropshire containing Shrewsbury. I conclude we must accept this match, and reject the Newtown claim with its possible Magna Carta connections.
Elizabeth Herbert [- 1574], the grandmother of "immigrant" John, was daughter of Richard Herbert [1468/70 - 1539] and Anne verch David. The Visitation pedigree, signed by her husband Richard and eldest son Edward, clearly shows this. This Richard was a son of Richard Herbert [1412 - 1469], of Coldbrook, and Margred verch Thomas. The signed Visitation pedigree clearly shows this. These relationships are also shown in the generally accepted pedigree of the Herberts as given in, for example,
Burke's Landed Gentry, latest edition, which also gives further Herbert ancestry.
Margred was the sister of the important Welshman, Sir Rhys ap Thomas [- 1525], whose ancestry has been well studied. Their mother was Elizabeth, daughter of Sir John Griffith [- 1471] of Wichnor in Staffordshire. John's parents were Thomas Griffith [1377 - 1431] and Anne Blount. Thomas' father was Rhys ap Griffith the younger [- 1381]. Rhys' parents were Rhys ap Griffith the elder [- 1356] and Joan Somerville [- 1376].
Joan was the daughter of Philip de Somerville [- 1356], who was the son of Robert Somerville and Isabel Merlay.
Isabel was the daughter of Roger de Merlay III, the son of Roger de Merlay II, the son of Roger de Merlay I [- 1188], the son of Ralph de Merlay [- 1160] and Juliana of Dunbar.
Juliana was the daughter of Gospatrick [- 1138], earl of Dunbar, who was the son of Gospatrick [-1075], earl of Northumberland. He was the son of Maldred [1003 - 1045], lord of Carlisle and Allerton, and Edith of Northumberland. Maldred's mother, Bethoc, was a daughter of Malcolm II, king of Scotland, and Edith's mother, Elgiva, was a daughter of Ethelred II, the "unready", king of Anglo-Saxon England.
John Price, the Jamestown immigrant, has many other interesting ancestors, including the Spanish nobelwoman Sanchia de Ayala and various Welsh princes.
A general list of sources is appended here. If you wish a more detailed explanation of the evidence or reasoning for any of these connections, please contact me.
"Ancestors and Descendants of John Price, Immigrant to Virginia 1610-11", compiled by Vina Chandler Price, Gateway Press, Baltimore, 1988. The relevant material is in Appendix I, which the author specifically states is not her own research and which she has not checked. It correctly makes John the immigrant to be son of Richard of Manafon, but incorrectly makes him son of Richard of Newtown. [If this mistake was made how can one be sure of any of the research...]
"Ancestral Roots of Certain American Colonists", 7th edition, by Frederick Lewis Weis and Walter Lee Sheppard, Jr., 1992. See line 42 for the Merlay ancestry.
"Arnold Henrie", by Jackie Watson,
This database is generally correct, unlike many others. [webpage no longer available]
"Burke's American Families with British Ancestry", excerpted from the Landed Gentry of 1939. It incorrectly makes John the immigrant to be son of Thomas the vicar, but correctly traces Thomas's ancestry, which is useful because John the immigrant was actually Thomas's nephew.
"Burke's Extinct and Dormant Baronetcies", 2nd edition, 1844. It shows Richard of Newtown to have died without issue.
"Burke's Landed Gentry", 18th edition, 1969-1972. It shows the correct Herbert genealogy (except maybe the very early generations).
"Heraldic Visitations of Wales and Part of the Marches; between the years 1586 and 1613, under the authority of Clarencieux and Norroy, two kings at arms, by Lewys Dwnn, deputy herald at arms", transcribed and edited by Samuel Rush Meyrick, The Welsh MSS Society, Llandovery, 1846. It is generally correct for the sixteenth century when it was compiled, but also includes legendary ancestries back to Adam and Eve [which discredits the whole thing!].

This is an interesting piece of evidence regarding the identity of a colonial immigrant: similarity of extant signatures on both sides of the water. Are this, and the closeness in age, the only evidences for this identity? Is your line proposing this identity of the immigrant's parents for the first time, or just the particular royal descent for the apparent parents of the immigrant?
Is anyone aware of other immigrant identities which are only made on the basis of similarity of two extant signatures?
Nat Taylor [obsolete URL]

I don't believe any specific linkeage in my proposal is new, but the combination as a whole is.
The evidence for identifying John Price, the Virginia immigrant, is:
1. a match in signatures between his and that on the indenture signed by John, son of Richard and Ursula, witnessed by Thomas brother of Richard, which was reported in the appendix to Vina Chandler Price's book. [Unable to certify this suggested match!]
2. a match of birthdates between his (40 years old at muster in 1624) and that of a John Price, son of Richard, gentleman, of Manafon, entering Shrewsbury school in 1600 (typically at age of 15 or 16 based on other entrants - but subjective, unproved), also reported in the appendix mentioned. [This is based on supposition not any actual fact beyond John's own statement of his age]
3. that the immigrant could evidently sign his name, which was uncommon, and indicated he had attended school.
4. that the immigrant served in the Virginia House of Burgesses, indicating a search among gentry was sensible.
My identification agrees with that in the appendix mentioned, and is contrary to that in Burke's American Families, in which the immigrant is identified with the son of Thomas Price of Shrewsbury. Burke cites no evidence.
I live in Fremont California, and would very much like to see these documents myself, which are apparently all in England.
The evidence for identifying Richard Price, father of the immigrant, is:
1. he is identified as a gentleman in his son's school admission, indicating a search of the visitations was sensible.
2. he has a brother named Thomas, which occurs in the Price family of Glan Meheli in the visitations. [It is interesting that the given name Thomas is prevalent in this family in Wales as is the name Richard, yet the immigrant John Price in Virginia has no early descendants named Thomas or Richard - instead the name Daniel is prevalent and not found in these proposed ancestors. This is highly unusual given the naming conventions of families from the British Isles.]
3. a John Price of Glan Meheli entered the same school a generation earlier, and the visitation also shows this Richard and Thomas to have had a brother named John.
4. all other Price families found in either the visitation of Shropshire or of Montgomeryshire do not show appropriate entries for an identification. [But what is the proof that the immigrant John Price was from either place!]
In this case my identification agrees with the next generation in Burke, and is contrary to that in the Vina Chandler Price book's appendix.
Neither source cites evidence at this point.
The web database I cited by Jackie Watson had both of these identifications, and is where I got the idea. This database cites sources, but does not alway explain a line of reasoning. It also shows considerable further ancestry, but does not display the two royal ancestries I have claimed. At the two Rhys ap Griffith's is suffers from the common error of an erroneous placement of the Stackpole heiress. See previous correspondence by Paul Reed for the untangling of that mess.
I am not aware of any other claims of matched signatures, but then, I've only explored my own lines (and a few friends), and thus have a limited range of experience.
-- PKD [Paul K Davis, [email protected]]

Common sense suggests you may have something here, though it's worth running elements of it to earth. What does the visitation say about your target person? Is John, son of Richard, shown at all on a visitation (or is the visitation only earlier than he would appear)? If he appears, is it with no comment, or a note of d. young, or some such?
And why does Vina Chandler Price end up looking elsewhere for the grandfather of the immigrant? Does she believe the Shrewsbury Richard & John belong to a different Price family, or elsewhere in the Glan Meheli one?
Finally, if Vina Chandler Price's book cites the sources of the documents with the signatures, you should be able to request copies.
Nat Taylor [obsolete URL]

Thanks for continuing to poke.
The Visitation text to which I refer is near the bottom of page 315 of volume one of Meyrick's edition of Dwn. It is captioned "The Pedigrees of Richd. ap John ap Meredith, one of the Gentlemen of the Parish of Kerie".
The third paragraph begins - "The said Rich\d maried Elizabeth, y\e younger daughter of Sir Rich\d Herbert, K\t son to S\t Rich\d Herbert, K\t descended of Colebrook. They had issue Edward, James, John, Charles, Thomas, Rich\d, Marg\t, and Mary." Further information is provided on the ancestry of Richard Price and on the wives and children of his oldest son,
Edward. The section concludes "Testified by Rich\d Jno. Meredith and Edward Price, vi. die Junii, Anno R. R. Elizabeth xxviii Anno Domini 1586."
Since two children are given by Edward's first wife, and none by his second wife, I would assume the two children were young in 1586. This makes them probably just a little bit older than my immigrant, who was apparently born in 1584, as would be expected if they were cousins, with my immigrant's father being a younger brother.
The appendix in Vina Chandler Price's book gives no explanation of the connection it makes in the earlier generation. Here are excerpts from this appendix -
"The following treatise was not researched by this writer and therefore, the data cannot be personally verified nor offered as proven fact. Mrs. Margaret Scruggs Carruth, a descendant of John Price, conducted the research on the ancestry of John Price in the late 1920s. ... Mrs. Carruth engaged a professional genealogist in England, one Miss Kett. ...
Miss Kett died before 1930 and Mr. H. E. Forrest of Shrewsbury, Wales was retained to continue the search. ...
"Rhys, who was a squire of the body to Edward IV, ... His descendants were known as Price (i.e. ap Rhys). He had two sons: Thomas and Meredith, both of whom founded families." ...
"Matthew Price also had a son, Richard Price I of Newtown, who had sons Rev. Thomas Price, Vicar of St. Chads, b. 1552, d. 1620 and, Richard Price II, Gentleman of Manavon, Tanner, who had by his wife Ursula Middleton, two sons, John Price of whom presently [the immigrant], and William Price.
[Dwynn, Vol., 2, pp. 330, 335 and 348]."
"John Pryce, was described as son and heir of Richard Pryce in an indenture in 1610-11 from Richard Pryce of Manavon, Montgomery County, Gentlemen, and Ursula Pryce, his wife to ___ Robinson. Thomas Pryce, brother of Richard Price II, was one of the witnesses. [Indenture, British Museum, A.D.D. Charter 1036, PC]. The signature on this indenture corresponds in every detail with the signature of John Price on the Petition to the King sent from Virginia in 1625-26 when John Price signed
as a member of the Burgess. [Public Record Office, London, England, C.O. 1/3, 17276, PC]." ...
NOTE: There is no exact date for this indenture. It is certain that the Starr with John Price on board departed from Lands End, England on 17 March 1610/1611, arriving two months later, 22 May 1611. It is quite possible he could not have been present in Manafon, Montgomeryshire in North Wales to be the man of the indenture especially if it has the double dating of 1610/1611.
"This John Pryce was registered at the Shrewsbury School as John Pryce, gen. F. (i.e. 'son of a gentleman') 2 June 1600, two shillings sixpence. This was the entrance register. Two shillings sixpence were paid by those students not living in the town of Shrewsbury. Pupils generally entered at the age of fifteen or thereabouts. The three sons of Rev. Thomas [Pryce] of St. Chads entered in the following order: Daniel, Samson, John and each paid two pence because they were 'oppidans', (i.e. living in town). The John of this group, entering in 1603, therefore born about 1588 or 1589."
... "Richard of Glan Mahli, whose son John was admitted in 1571"
I notice now that an additional piece of suggestive evidence is that the indenture was signed within a year before John Price immigrated to Jamestown. [SEE ABOVE NOTE - date of the indenture uncertain!]
I suspect the original reason for connecting the immigrant to the Newtown branch of Rhys's descendants is simply that it was better known, having produced a baronet, than the Glan Meheli branch.
A further perplexity is that no reason is given for "Middleton" as the maiden surname of Ursula. Many web databases give Ursula's father as "David Middleton", but I have not found any statement of any reason for this.

JOHN PRICE I and ANN [PRICE] were married between 1620 and 1623 in Virginia.5 ANN [PRICE]3,6 was born in 1603.5 She died before May 1666 at the age of 63.

Ann came in the "Bon Aventure" in 1620; she gave her age as 21 when Capt John Harvey took his account of the citizens of the Colony of Virginia in 1624/25, commonly referred to as "The Muster".

There have been claims that Ann's surname was Matthews and she was the daughter of Samuel Matthews, however, the records show that Samuel Matthews did not arrive in Virginia until 1622.

Ann married Robert Hallom after the death of John Price. On 6 May 1638, a patent was issued to Ann Hallom, widow, and the heirs of Robert Hallom, dec'd for 1000 acres in Henrico. Northeast by the woods, southwest by the river, northwest by Bremo & land of Mr. Richard Cocke, & southeast toward Turkey Island Creek adj land of John Price. This would later become William Randolph's plantation known as Turkey Island.

Robert Hallom came from Burnham, County Essex, England to Virginia, Aug 1620 in the "Francis Bonaventure" [the same ship Ann Price came on]. He was living at Neck of Land in Charles City in the Muster as were John and Ann Price. Luke Boyse claimed him as a headright and he was listed as his servant.

Robert had three brothers still living in England. John who lived in London, a poulterer, William of Burnham, County Essex who was a salter; and Thomas who died in 1644 and whose widow married (2) William Mason. Thomas Hallom, Jr, son of Thomas came to Virginia about 1655 bringing power of attorney from the England Halloms. He gave Daniel Llewellyn receipt in full in 1657.

A patent to Matthew Price referred to land granted to his late father John Price and now in possession of his mother Ann Hallom.

Ann had at least three Hallom children: Ann, Sarah, and Robert Jr.

Ann Hallom married John Grundy of Elizabeth City County, VA.

Sarah Hallom married in 1654 to Samuel Woodward of Charles City Co VA who died about 1659, and then married (2) John Sturdivant.

10 Aug 1654 Samuel Woodward and Sarah his wife sold to William Edwards, cooper, one third of 1000 acres purchased of Mr. Richard Cocke and given to Sarah by the will of her deceased father Robert Hallam. That part next to the land purchased by sd Edwards of our brother John Gundry [husband of Sarah's sister Ann].

Sara Woodward, relict, received letters of administration on the estate of Samuel Woodward, 3 Feb 1659.

Samuel Woodward was the son of Christopher Woodward who came to Virginia in the "Tryall" in Jun of 1620. He was listed as dead in Martin's Hundred but a year later he was named in the Muster at West & Shirley Hundred. He represented Westover in the General Assembly of 1629. He had a grant of 300 acres on 9 Nov 1635, increased to 350 acres on 8 Mar 1637 and then renewed and increased on 24 Aug 1637. Some of this land eventually found it's way into the hand of William Williams who left it to his daughter Leah, wife of Ralph Jackson Sr.

Before 14 Sep 1660 Sarah had married John Sturdivant. In 1673 he received permission from the county court to "entertain Indians" and was apparently an Indian trader in the employ of William Byrd I of Westover. William Byrd wrote, 29 Apr 1684 to Thomas Grendon in England that "old Sturdivant, his son, Milner, Shipy, Womacke & Hugh Cassell were killed by the Indians in their returne from the westward".
Letters of administration were granted at January Court 1691 to Daniel Sturdivant on behalf of himself and his brothers, on the estate of their mother, Sarah Sturdivant, deceased.

Robert Hallom Jr never married. He was sent to England to live with his aunt Margaret, widow of Thomas Hallom, and her husband William Mason and was apprenticed to learn the trade of salter. He died without issue and his 1/3 of the Turkey Island tract of his father was inherited by nephews Samuel Woodward & John Gundry who sold to William Randolph. Robert was last mention in the will of his uncle William Hallom in 1657 which was to give him 100£ on his coming of age.

Probably Robert had died and Ann married Daniel Llewellyn by 1640. He was in Virginia before 19 Sep 1633 when he was claimed as a headright by Capt. William Perry.

Daniel Llewellyn was in Virginia by 19 Sep 1633 when he was claimed as a headright by Capt William Perry. Daniel Llewellyn, Gent. received a patent on 27 Oct 1642 for 856 acres on the Upper branches of Turkey Island Creek, adjacent to Mr. Aston. He claimed 17 headrights including Robert and Frances Hallom.

By 1646 he had taken over the management of the Hallom family affairs in Virginia. He served as a Burgess from Henrico and Charles City; he was a justice and sheriff of Charles City.

The will of Daniel Llewellyn Sr was signed 6 Feb 1664 and proved 11 Mar 1664 in England. He stated that he was of Chelmsford, Essex, England, planter and bequeathed land in the upper part of the James river area to Virginia to wife Ann for life. He named a son Daniel Llewellyn Jr, a daughter Martha Jones, and a daughter Margaret Cruse and his step-son Robert Hallom Jr in that will.

Daniel Llewellyn Jr married Jane Stith, daughter of Col. John Stith and was referred to in her father's will of 13 Nov 1690 as "daughter Jane the now wife of Capt Daniel Luellin".

Margaret Llewellyn is thought to have married James Crews sometime between 10 Aug 1654 when she witnessed a deed as Margaret Llewellyn and before 1 May 1662 when she witnessed a will "Margaret Crewes". There was no spouse indicated in the will of James Crews in Jul of 1676, indicating Margaret had likely died if she is the same lady.

After Ann married Daniel Llewellyn he undertook the management of the Virginia interests of the Halloms still in England which produced a considerable correspondence and is recorded in the court records of Charles City County.

JOHN PRICE I and ANN [PRICE] had the following children:



Mary PRICE6 was born about 1624 in Virginia.

Wife Ann was aged 21 having just come in the "Francis Bonaventure" in Aug of 1620. They had a child Mary, age 3 months. Provisions listed were 2 1/2 barrels of corn, 1 1/2 bushel of peas, 5 lb. of power, 10 lb. of lead. 2 fixt Peeces [guns?], 1 suit of Armor, 1 Coat of Steele, a sword and a dager. 5 head of cattle, 15 chickens. They list 2 houses. - ADVENTURERS OF PURSE & PERSON VIRGINIA 1607-1624/5; Meyer & Dorman, 1987.
