Since the July e-mail I have revised my Cage genealogy in England. Burks Commoner states that William Cage and Joane Culpepper are the parents of John F. Cage. This is incorrect in that they were married in 1637 and John was born in 1627. Also John arrived in America in 1636 as an indentured servant of Thomas Cornwallis and had an obligation to him for 8 years service. At the same time William Cage was in England and never came to America. William was the executor of the estate of the Fairfax estate who owned the Northern Neck grants and all of Fairfax Co., VA. William never came to America. Therefore William Cage and John F. Cage could not have been father and son.
Edward Cage that I show as a parent of John F. Cage in incorrect. This information has been passed around the internet for years. Edward Cage came to James City and had a house there for about 8 years. None of his family were in VA with him. He was here on tobacco business. Edward Cage was the grandfather of John F. Cage but they never came in contact with each other in America as John F. Cage was in Charles County, MD. Edward Cage returned to England and died there in 1639.
The actual father of John F. Cage was John Cage of England who was married to Mary de Clifford in 1610 in London, England. This John Cage was a son of Edward Cage who was the grandfather of John F. Cage. This John Cage was born in Suffolk Co., England on23 Jan 1582/83 and died at Fretheme, Glostershire England on 1 Aug. 1643. Had Edward Cage been the father of John F. Cage, Edward's wife would have been 67 years old and this would have been impossible
Since July when I replied to you I have done extensive work on the English Cages. Most of this new information comes from Harleian Society Visitations and English Parish records. These records are charts that show the ancestor, the child and their spouse along with the spouses parents. These Charts also show where these people resided in England. These charts were made in real time and were required by law between 1400 and 1700 for people with Heritage. My local Library had 55 volumes of these visitations and I ordered 15 volumes from Utah.
