I have been unable to trace this family back to its North Carolina / Virginia origins.Too many lost colonial records.Probably descended from Richmond Terrell of New Kent Co, Va., but the proof is long lost.
I have found the following collateral information which identifies the family as Banfield.Here are my notes:
