| || Notes for Lady Grace* O'Neill:|
GRACE [O'NEAL] or O' NEILL's home was Dunluce Castle, near Giant's Head, Ireland. Apparently she was in London, England, in the king's court as a young girl. It is said she fled England for Jamestown, VA, in disguise to escape a distasteful and obnoxious court marriage. After surviving a shipwreck near the coast of Bermuda [error?], GRACE O'NEAL arrived in Bermuda aboard H.M.S. Diana in 1618. She married Lt. Waters and they made their home on a plantation near Elizabeth City, VA. They were captured during the Indian Massacre of Elizabeth City, VA, in 1622, but later escaped to Jamestown.
