Searching for any information available on Matthew Zuill(e)of Wicomico & St Stephens Parish, Northumberland County, VA.I think? he married Elizabeth Allerton in the early 1700's.I have been told Mr. Zuill was a merchant from Liverpool, England, but no proof. I would like to find Matthew Zuill's country of orgin which might give me a lead to my ancestor John Adams.The only document I have found connecting them is as follows:
Records of Indentured Servants and of Certificates for Land Northumberland County, Virginia by W. Preston Haynie: #1720. 14 April 1740---On the Petition of John Adams, servant of Matthew Zuill gent., seting forth that he was free, the court haveing considered the same order that the sd John Adams return to his master’s service & serve him till ye Nineteeth day of April next & pay Costs.OB 1737-43, 130.
