I have excerpts from a manuscript sent to Mary Katherine Hays by Brice McAdoo Clagett, Covington and Burling - 888 - 16th St., NW Washington, DC 20006, in which the Floyds of the Eastern Shore of VA are traced from John Floyd ["founder of that family"] thru the 1600's up to the mid 1800's. John is said to be in Northampton County in 1660 when John Wilcocks received land for transporting him, though it may be that John was in VA as early as 1639. The document I have is 32 typed pages and appears to be part of a draft of a manuscript which Mr. McAdoo may have been working on. My copy has a pencilled note: "This is at DAR Library, DC. 1977" You may wish to look for this in DAR sources or, if you prefer, I can send you a copy of mine. I am sure you have found that there are many John Floyds in the records.
