| || Notes for Elizabeth Elam:|
Nunnally family researchers have uncovered enough documents to show with certainty that Elizabeth, the widow of Daniel Nunnally (d. aft 1687), married next before 1689 to John Bowman. It is unclear whether Walter Nunnally was a son of Elizabeth or was the product of an earlier marriage by Daniel. The widow Elizabeth Nunnally is presumed to be the Elizabeth Elam who married Daniel Nunnally.
Richard Nunnally b ca 1690

I really do feel that Daniel Nunnally is our first Nunnally in Virginia (at least that we have record of) and that he had sons Richard and Walter. I am not sure of his origin-everyone is still searching.
As for Thomas Nunnally born ca 1670, I have never seen any record that he even exists. Shortal seems to use him to explain the Thomas Nunnally who lived in Prince George Co VA. Shortal makes no mention of, and seems not aware of the Daniel Nunnally in Charles City Co.
I am posting the information that I have for Daniel, Richard, Walter & Thomas. It is my opinion that Thomas born ca 1690 is the son and heir of Walter Nunnally, son of Daniel. This information comes from the court records of Charles City, Henrico & Prince George counties Va.

Walter Nunnally was probably the elder son of Daniel since he ended up with the plantation "Bullhill". Likewise, Thomas Nunnally was the only, or elder son of Walter, since he inherits "Bullhill" and then sells it to John Thweat.
I would love to hear your opinion and that of any others who are interested in these Nunnallys.
