First Name:

The Wards, Dukes, Byrd & Related Families of Old Virginia

Updated January 12, 2009

About Our Family Research

My research primarily involves the early families who settled along the James River during the 1600s in the Colony of Virginia. Primary families include: Ward, Duke, Byrd, Hatcher, Worsham, Stewart, Horsmanden, Soane, and related families. I am a descendant of Seth Ward who came from England and settled in Henrico County, Virginia; of William Byrd, I who settled at The Falls & then at Westover, Charles City County, VA; of Henry Duke, Councilor of Virginia, of James City County; of Henry Hatcher of Henrico Co., VA.
