Yes, David Darnall/Darnell moved to Richmond in 1789

In Virginia in 1689. "It being ordered that he and his pretended wife and
children remove from the County". St Mary's County, Md. Apparently in
conflict both with Church of England and Catholic regime of Maryland. Moved
to Richmond Co., Va. in 1691. Ref: "Darnall, Darnell Family", by Dr. H.C.

"Vol.16: Deed,"9/21/1693, David DARNELL and Margaret (X) his wife, of St.
Mary's Parish, Richmond Co., Va. to Hugh FRENCH for 7000 lb. tobo. 600 acres
etc., adjnj land of ----, Mr. Sampson DARNELL,--- land lying in Rappahannock
and Stafford Cos."

His son Morgan born about 1678 in St. Mary's Co., MD; died 1726 in Near Tin
Pot Run, King George, VA; married Elizabeth DUNCAN in 1704 in Stafford Co.,

This, later, was in the Muddy River District; then in King George Co., but
through an exchange of land between the counties, probably lies in Stafford
Co.; Muddy River now forming the boundry between these counties. In 1719 he
sold this land to his brother Waugh, having patented 427 acres in the Elk
Marsh Dist., "on the East side of a great marsh commonly called the
Rappahannock Marsh."

In 1722, Waugh sold his land and patented 1200 acres in the same
neighborhood; both brothers dying in the summer of 1726 and both estates
were probated at the 7 November term of King George Co. Court. He died 1
July 1726
