"Nathaniel Floyd, and his brother Walter arrived from Wales in Jamestown, VA in 1623 on the vessel "Bona Nova." They likely made frequent trading trips to and from the Old World until they and their offspring settled more permanently in Isle of Wight County and Accomac County. A relative, Richard Floyd, also came to Jamestown in 1653 and moved north to Long Island and is the likely ancestor of William Floyd who signed the Declaration of Independence. Nathaniel is the ancestor of another William Floyd, the progenitor of the Virginia-Kentucky branch of the family. William of VA married Abadiah Davis, a grandaughter of Princess Nicketti who was in turn a granddaughter of Chief Powhatan. Abadiah along with her sisters and brothers are the ancestors of many famous Americans including President Davis of the Confederate States of America, Governor John Floyd of Virginia, Charles Floyd of the Lewis & Clark expedition and many more including the Venable, Burke, Cabell, and Shelby families."
Reading on the above site tells me that we are connected to Matoaka "Pocohontas" (distantly), which I find interesting. Do you have anything on this - more than what is written in the above article?
