Hi William. I am a descendant of Rev. William Sorey through his daughter Margarett and her second husband, James Williams. In Rev William Sorey's will his daughter is referred to as Margarett Woodard ( her first husband was Josiah Woodard).Rev. William Sorey's father, William, died in 1784 and his ( the elder Sorey's) will identifies his wife as Mary. In your message you state that the parents of Rev. William Sorey were William Sorey and Mary Grieve. Please tell me where you found Mary's last name. I have not been able to determine Mary's identity in the records in Virginia Beach or Chesapeake. Also, Grieve is not a name that I can recall seeing in the early Princess Anne Co and Norfolk Co records. Also, are you aware that the father of William Sorey who died in 1784 was Francis Sorey who was married to Ann_____, and who died in Princess Anne Co in 1753? His will is recorded in Deed Book 7 at page 433 in Virginia Beach.
