Notes on Selected Families from the Register of Saint Peter’s Parish in New Kent County, Virginia

I believe that the practice of accepting “family trees” that assert parent-child relationships in one’s ancestral lines often fail to place the relationships in context, and sometimes result in false information that results in spurious “family tree” lines of descedancy. I think it is important to have insights into the environments in which our ancestors lived.

The “family trees” are often disadvantaged by incomplete documentary evidence that can result from lost archival information (often due to the destruction that accompanies warfare).

The following is a list of excerpts from the archives of Saint Peter’s Parish in New Kent, Virginia, an invaluable source of information of data that survived the destruction of both the Revolutionary War and American Civil War. I have chosen entries relating to the families surnamed Ammon, Carter, CrumpHughes, Sanders/Saunders, Waddell/Waddill and Woodward that appear in the Saint Peter’s Parish records of New Kent, County, Virginia. I have annotated the list with relevant comments.
