Does anyone have information about Maurice and Robert Rose who were on records in Charles City County, Vrginia in the mid-1600s?
From "Cavaliers & Pioneers" Virginia Patent Book No. 4 Maurice Rose, 1400 acs. Chas. City Co., 10 Oct. 1657, p. 128, (189). On S. side of James Riv. & on Eastermost side of the head of Wards Cr. beg. on land formerly of William Haneat (?), &c. 1000 acs. granted unto Adam Coate (or Coale), by him deserted; granted unto Hoell Price who assigned his interest to sd. Rose together with rights to make the whole devdt. good for trans. of 28 persons . . . .
Maurice Rose had been a 1637 headright of Walter Aston of Shirley Hundred.
Robert Rose/Rowse witnessed a deed of gift from Mary Freme to her children in March of 1655/56.(Virginia colonial Abstracts, Vol. 1, Beverly Fleet, GPC, Baltimore, 1988, page 43.) Some researchers think Mary's maiden name was Rose.
