Re: Thomas Cottrell, immigrant to VA
Annette: I don't remember if we finished our conversation.
Thomas COTTRELL II, son of Thomas I and Martha HACHER/HATCHER.
was born in New Kent Co VA, and died in Amherst Co Dec 1763.
That he was in/near the Manikentown settlement does not mean
he was Hugenot or French. There were COTTRELLs in Shropshire
Co UK in the early 1600s. My immigrant, Samuel WEAVER I, 1707 York Co - Aug 1769 Manikentown, Goochland Co. His 2nd wife
was Francoise L'ORANGE. He was from Shropshire and not Hugenot.
My line continued with Thomas III who died in Wilkes Co NC
in Nov 1828.
I am trying to connect the early COTTRELLs of New Kent and
York VA, to the Andrew COTTRELL who had land transactions
in Northumberland Co VA in 1656. Any help?
