Rees Hughes was born 1620 in Charles City, Virginia, and died 1705.He married Elizabeth ? .She was born 1625.
"We think the ancestors of our Hughes family came to this country in the mid 1600s and that Rees Hughes, Sr., is the immigrant ancestor. Rev. George Hughes who appears in the records at about the same time as Rees Hughes, Sr., may have been his brother. We have found records of a Rees/Rice Hughes, William Hughes, and others in the Parish Records of St. Peter's Church of New Kent County. William Hughes was apparently hired to build the church and is believed to be the son of Rev. George Hughes. Some researchers believe that Rees, Jr., and my direct ancestor, Edward Hughes, were first cousins. Edward Hughes continued to show up in the same records (such as the Quaker Monthly Meetings) as Robert and Sarah Hughes and Rees Hughes, Jr. It appears that this family migrated from New Kent (now Hanover County area) to Henrico, Goochland, and then to Albemarle, Amherst and Nelson Counties. From the patent and other land records, we also believe this branch of Hughes had ties with the Hughes who were in Buckingham/Cumberland and even Powhatan Counties.
"My ancestors who were in Albemarle were William Hughes, son of Thomas Hughes, Jr., and John Hughes who married Mary (Polly) Williams Jean and moved to New Canton area. Both Thomas Hughes, Jr., and Sr. were in Albemarle in the 1740s according to the road orders and land records. Thomas Hughes, Sr., was the son of Edward Hughes, and Edward was possibly the son of Rees Hughes, Sr. There are wills at the Albemarle County Courthouse for Thomas (1779) and William Hughes (1813) which clearly give the names of their children. Moses Hughes who settled in Amherst/Nelson County (died in 1823) was a brother to my ancestor, William. I have many of the descendants of this family in my family tree on rootsweb.
QUAKER- Henrico MM minutes. Marriage of THOMAS LANGFORD and MARTHA WEST, daughter of Giles West, on 21 FEB 1700, "at the home of the aforesaid people" in New Kent Co. Groom and bride were both from New Kent County. Attending were Christipher Clark and Elizabeth Clark, Michael Johnson, and Sarah Johnson, ThomasStanley, Charles Fleming, Rice Hughes, Robert Hughes, Sarah Hughes, and Susannah Fleming.
According to Dr. William Cabell, in his book, "The Cabells and Their Kin", he tells of how Trader Hughes, and his wife Nicketti Hughes, established a trading post in the area of the James River and Otter Creek in Virginia, near Jamestown. The visible stone chimney qualified him as the first permanent settler. He was one of the first white men to have been able to successfully trade with the Indians of Virginia. This is how he got the nickname of "Trader", which stuck with him, however most believe his first name to have been Rice or maybe Rees.
Trader Hughes' wife, Nicketti, was the grand daughter of Powhatan Indian Chief Opechanacanough (Powhatan), of Captain John Smith fame. Nicketti's mother was named Cleopatra, (at least this is what the white settlers of Jamestown called her) and was the sister to Pocahontas.

THREE GENERATIONS OF THE HUGHES FAMILY:
ORLANDO, LEANDER and ARCHELAUS
BY Becky M. and Larry D. Christiansen
All material copyright 2004 Henry H. George
This page is a narrative of Orland Hughes, his son Leander and his Grandson Archelaus. The authors have meticulously backed their statements with a wealth of references, not suppositions.
This is a lengthy, in depth history not only of the Hughes family, but life in the Eighteenth and early Nineteenth Centuries. It contains over 289,000 Bytes on six pages, plus pictures.
The Christiansens have very generously given me permission to post their work on my site [Henry H. George] because Archelaus Hughes is my Fifth Great Uncle thru his marriage to my Fifth Great Aunt Mary Dalton.
Becky M. Christiansen is the Fourth Great Granddaughter of Archelaus Hughes.
The Situation and Problem
"The origin of this family of Hugheses in America has been briefly told by Lucy Henderson Horton in a book entitled Family History which was published at Franklin, Tennessee, in 1922. In Mrs. Horton’s work the Hugheses were only the first of several families traced and cover the first seventy-six pages in her book. Mrs. Horton was the granddaughter of John Hughes, the son of Archelaus Hughes, who was the son of Leander Hughes, who was the son of the Orlando Hughes (supposed to have been one of three immigrant brothers from Wales). From her father Mrs. Horton possessed stories and some documents that related to the Hughes family from Archelaus, her great grandfather’s time forward, and she wrote: “I have a great many old family papers, business papers and letters which came to me through my grandfather, Captain John Hughes (1776-1860).” However, none of these papers date prior to Archelaus Hughes. For the earlier years it is fairly easy to see the sources of her information, and it appears that if it was written in a book or newspaper, it was an acceptable source in her mind. She also explained some of her research as follows: “I began to gather data for this work in 1897, when making research to establish my eligibility to membership in the National Society of Daughters of the American Revolution. When becoming a member of Colonial Dames of America in 1904, I went deeper into the study.” Through the ensuing years few individuals, if any, have questioned the coming of the first immigrants of this family of Hugheses to Virginia. For many family members Mrs. Horton’s book contains all they know of these beginnings, and to some her book has become their historical and genealogical guidepost.
"...The claims that these Hugheses were of royal Welsh lineage, so often reiterated by Mrs. Horton with sources ranging from Burke’s Peerage to newspaper articles, has numerous difficulties. Just because something was written in a book or newspaper did not mean it was true. Even more consequential, the cited references that Mrs. Horton used never specified the line of Hugheses, but were general references to Hugheses and in a few cases a particular Hughes but no connecting link made to Mrs. Horton’s Hugheses. Furthermore, on Burke’s work, the noted 19th century English author Oscar Wilde once said, “Burke’s Peerage, it is the best thing the English have done in fiction.” Somehow Mrs. Horton tied her line to those first of the name who were princes of the royal line of Wales. This was a tremendous leap of belief, almost to the point that if they were Hugheses (in its wide variation of spelling from Hewes, Hue, Hough, Hughs, etc.) and they were noted and royal, they were hers, and all blended together, however untidily and unexplained.
"Two classic examples of the above will be given specifically. On page 10 of her book Mrs. Horton wrote: “Stephen Hughes, of the Orlando branch of the family, who was born in Wales in 1690, married Elizabeth Tarlton, who was born in 1696 and died 1775 (see American Ancestry, Vol. IV, 1889, pages 77-78).” Later on page 20 she stated: “The will of Leander, son of Orlando, was proved June 26, 1775. His legatees were his sons, Powell, Stephen, John and Archelaus. John Hughes, son of Leander, is spoken of as the offspring of intermarriage between the Hughes family of Welsh blood and the Jesse Hughes branch of Huguenot blood. That these two Hughes branches intermarried, see pages 77-78, American Ancestry, Vol. 4, 1889, Muncell’s sons, publishers. See Frances Cowles.” If one goes to the fourth volume of American Ancestry to the cited pages, one finds the descent of Robert William Hughes, born in 1821 in Powhatan County, Virginia, back through six generations to Jesse Hughes, a Huguenot emigrant who came to Virginia between 1675 and 1700 and settled the Hughes Creek Plantation in Powhatan County. Then to the crux of the subject - the article stated that this family of Huguenot Hugheses intermarried with another of Welsh blood who were among the colonizers of Powhatan County, whose original immigrant was Stephen Hughes. This Stephen Hughes had been born in Caervarvonshire, Wales, or Glamorganshire and married Elizabeth Tarlton, who was born in 1696 and died 1775. Although the American Ancestry never connected the Welsh line of Hugheses to Orlando in any way, Mrs. Horton did and then in her usual way proved it by citing her source. Also, she now could proclaim the name of where her Hugheses emigrated from in Wales. But the American Ancestry article did not prove her claim on either Stephen or John, and besides its accuracy was questionable as it cited Powhatan County a hundred years before its formation.
"The Hughes section of Mrs. Horton’s Family History had a multitude of problems starting with the basic claims and the very dubious proofs she asserted. Her work has numerous errors (some of which will be noted later), and some of her materials are suspect as she had little regard for geography, time, actual documented evidence and establishing relationships. She wrote more like a painter with a broad sweeping brush, leaving a blurred incomplete word mosaic or story rather than the details and facts of a sharp pen. Her brush like strokes did as much to obscure as to reveal, and she repeatedly asserted her proof strokes, wandering to other things, often extraneous, only to return with more reporting and proving again of what she never did verify. Perhaps the prism by which Mrs. Horton viewed her topic was the key to her work. She never heard of nobility that did not please and impress her. She wrote: “In lifting the veil from the past . . . It may seem to some that I have made a vainglory effort to trace your origins back to European nobility, but ‘I do not think that lords are small things anywhere. Lords are made by kings for great deeds or great virtues.’ ‘Then they are lords of their own making. Kings only seal the patent nature has bestowed.’” She declared her line of Hugheses were thus descended and endowed. Whatever one may think of this prismatic view, it takes a tremendous leap to nobility when even the first step-parents of the three Welsh immigrant brothers-cannot be given. Thus, Mrs. Horton leaps, soars and jumps to conclusions beyond her bounds to verify. Her coverage of the first two generations of her Hughes in America gives very little, if any, that is creditable. With this much established, it must be realized that Mrs. Horton had access to both family stories and some papers on the later Hugheses that were important. So her work must be used but with extreme caution..."
