SOUTH, LAMBERT, STAPLETON, GROVE, HINDMER, MARTIN, SANFORD, WOODRUFFE, FINCH: My Elizabeth Lambert STAPLETON GROVE (1752 VA-1834 OH,wife of John GROVE) was the daughter of Thomas STAPLETON (b. abt 1720 VA-d. 1771 Loudoun Co., VA) & Elizabeth LAMBERT.Elizabeth LAMBERT was the dau. of Joan SOUTH (the 1st wife of Thomas LAMBERT b.1683-1747 Westmoreland Co., VA). Joan was the dau. of George SOUTH (b. abt 1656 VA-d. 1700 Westmoreland Co., VA) and Isabella (pos. MINOR). George & Isabel had 4 children: George (md Ann HINDMER); John (d. unmd. 1710 in Westmoreland, VA); Tamer (md William MARTIN)& my Joan.Only female SOUTH & male (LAMBERT & MARTIN)grandchildren survived this George & Isabella's lineage.
George was the son of George SOUTH (b. abt. 1627 VA-d.1672 Bristol, Westmoreland, VA)and Elizabeth (others say Ann SANFORD).I believe George was the son of Robert SOUTH (b. abut 1600 Downham,Cambridge,England-d. bef 20 Nov 1689 in Northumberland Co., VA, son of William & Joan FINCH) and Marrian (called Mary)WOODRUFFE.Robert SOUTH lst came to America April 1620 to Jamestown, VA aboard his ship called "Roberts Bonaventure".He must have returned to England because 24 Jan 1625 in Downham,Cambridge, England he married Marrian (called Mary)WOODRUFFE and brought her to America to live.Anyone interested in these families please contact me.I've been researching on the Downham, Cambridge, England SOUTHS, has anyone been working on them that can help me verify my data?
