Re: Searcning any info on Jane Calvert b abt 1725 married to John William Day of NC
There are several possibilities, I'm afraid.However, one
possibility is that Jane Calvert was a member of my family.
My 5th great-grandfather was Joseph Calvert. In 1720 he bought land on Plumtree Island. (This is now Mush Is. and is located
opposite the town of Weldon on the Roanoke River). Mush Island is now part of Halifax County, but in the 1720's it was part of Bertie Co. Later, Bertie split and it became part of Edgecombe Co., And finally, Edgecombe split and Mush Is. became part of Halifax. Mush Is. is also next to Northampton Co., NC.
Joseph Calvert was associated with a number of Indian traders including Abraham and Joseph Colson, Richard Turbeville, Thomas Whitmell, Capt. Robert Hicks, and William Byrd II.
It is unknown how many sons and daughters Joseph had, although there is a belief that his wife was named Mary Colson. My 4th great-grandfather, Thomas Calvert/Colvard, lived in the town of Halifax from 1758 to 1768. He and his family then moved west to Bute Co (which later became Franklin and Warren).
I believe Joseph Calvert was the first Calvert to live in that area, but descendants of Cornelius Calvert of Norfolk, VA, also lived in Northampton Co., NC. This family also owned a hotel in Warren Co., NC.
So you have two strong possibilities and a lot of mediocre possibilities.
One more thing. I think my Colbert (previous Calvert/Colvard) family is related to the Leonard and Day families of Franklin Co.
