A Timeline of my Earliest American Colonial Ancestors 1608-1630

Recently I decided that it might be fun to make a timeline of my earliest immigrant ancestors to the American colonies.  Fun indeed!  It has turned into a much bigger project than I imagined!

The website Pilgrim Ship Lists by Date , by Anne at Packrat Productions,  was very helpful in assembling my list.  If you have the time & inclination, she needs volunteers to transcribe ship's lists!

Here is my timeline 1608-1630 so far (and far from complete I might add), beginning with my earliest known ancestor.  For each immigrant, I have tried to add the name of the ship if known, and where they eventually settled. ORANGE is my maternal line; BLUE is my paternal line, and PURPLE is both.

1608  EDWARD GURGANEY “Phoenix” Jamestown VA
1610  CECILY REYNOLDS age 10? possibly relative or servant of William Pierce ?;  “Swan”; she married Thomas    Bailey, Samuel Silas Jordan (possibly her cousin)  & William Farrar in  Jamestown, VA.

I love your idea and how you have shown it.

Just one little question - how did Henrico County devolve from the Eastern Shore (as implied in a couple of your entries)?

The Eastern Shore counties are Accomack and Northampton, which were not parent Counties to Henrico. I have not found anything indicating that either was ever considered to be part of Henrico County, nor were they connected in any Parish organization scenario that I have found. I would be most interested to learn more.

Are we thinking of 2 different ideas of "Eastern Shore"?

Thanks very much for pointing this out. I suspect they started out on the Eastern shore, then moved to Henrico Co VA later. I'll continue to research this...

Is the "Thomas Crispe" on your website that of the same who causes havoc with the Cornish and Nevell bloodlines in Virginia Colony in 1626?
