Bartholomew Stovall 7G-GF 1665-1721 and Ann Burton circa 1675-1736

    Bartholomew, the first to emigrate to America, was born on August 24, 1665 in Albury, Srrey [Surrey] County, England to George and Joan Stoffold. His birth was recorded four times in the Quaker Records of Guildfor with two different dates, as Bartholomew Stowell. He was baptized at the age of 18 on November 11, 1683, in the Espiscopal Church (Church of St Peter and St. Paul) at Albury. He may have done this in order to emigrate since Quaker and other non Espiscopal religions were not held in the same regard as the members of the Church of England. On July 7, 1684, at the age of 21, he signed an indenture document to serve John Bright; Merchant of London for 4 years on arrival in the Colonies. He boarded the GOOTH and signed documents presented by the ship's master; Peter Pagan and witnessed by Joseph Pycraft. In April 1690, Richard Kennon received land from the Henrico Co. Court, Virginia as payment for bringing in emigrants to the Colonies. One of the names on Kennon's list is Bart. Stowell (1684). [Fom the Stovall Society]

The other children included Thomas Burton; born in 1663/64, John Burton; born in 1666, Isaac Burton; born in 1667/68 and Abraham Burton; born in 1669.
