The name Spilsby is so unusual, and it has been in our family for several generations. We thought our Spilsby Dyer was named for Spilsby Trible of Caroline Co. Va. However, as I have researched I am finding more Spilsbys and I was wondering if anyone has any info on the Spilsbe (or Spilsby) Sale and/or the unusual name of Spilsbe. He was listed in the Va marriage index 1740-1850 & also 1830 Census VA Caroline Co and again in 1870 in King & Queen County. Our Spilsby Dyer's grandfather and uncles came from Caroline Co, Halifax co NC and VA and Pr. Edward Co and Pittsylvania.They were Joseph, John and James Dyer as well as some other Dyers. If anyone has any kind of connection, let me know by private email, as I don't check this forum very often.
