Re: Lundy Family History
The book talks about an "ejectment suit - Lundy v. Lundy".The essence of the suit is that James Lundy, Sr. had an illegitimate son born of Sarah Sherard, a single woman, and named him James Lundy, Jr.
James Lundy, Sr. died in 1717 and left 100 acres of land to James, Jr.Sarah Sherard was also an indentured servant and died while still indentured.James Lundy, Sr. stated that he would have married her if she had lived to be free to do so.
James Lundy, Sr. arrived in America ca. 1690 as an indentured servant.He was born ca 1674, probably in Fife, Scotland.
There is more on the ancestry of James Lundy, Sr. in the book.
