[ John Harvey was disposed as governor and ordered to return home
to England in 1639. He died a few years latter. He wrote his will aboard a
ship he was tarveling on. He lived in London England and had a brother
Simeon Harvey I believ it was who also had lived in London England. any one
want a copy of this will I can send it to the list.]

[ No this is not a son of Governor John Harvey he had no sons only
three underage daughters]

[ I am not sure if the first John Harvey and this second one are
the same. The second John Harvey listed was a son of a Thomas harvey who
brought 17 people over from England including his wife Mary and son John
Harvey. This John Harvey was the John Harvey who married Dorthy Tooke. She
died and I have a abstract copy of her will. No children were listed in her
will so her and John may have died Childless]

[ This is the supposed Harvey of who all the harvey's who came
out of Lunenburg Co. VA are descended from. I say supposed because there is
no documented evidence found as yet on who the father of the Harveys who
came from that area are. In the actual records that record this marriage it
says his parents are John Harvey and Mary of Heath Snitterfield Parish
Warwickshire England. Thomas married Joanna or Johnna Jenkins as above.
Thomas harvey then married Sarah Laker. Thomas died see his will abstract
below and Sarah Harvey Laker married Christopher Gale. They had three
children. This Thomas harvey is no relation to John Harvey who married
Dorthy Tooke as far as I can tell. ]

[ These two deeds are of John Harvey who married Dorthy Tooke
and Thomas harvey his father who brought John over in 1640 along with Mary
the wife of Thomas harvey. ]

[ This is Thomas harvey who married Joanna Jenkins then Sarah
laker. The other Thomas harvey mentioned in the second deed may be his son.
Its possible the Harvey's from San Augustine Co. TX are related to a
Littleberry harvey and a Charles B. Harvey whose father was a John Harvey.
They come from the Laurens district area from about 1770- 1800. They are
believed by me, John Harvey and Littleberry Harvey to be sons of Charles
harvey and Mary Holcombe who was from Lunenburg Co. VA.. ]

[ This is Thomas Harvey Esquire if I am not mistaken who
married first Jhoanna Jenkins and then Sarah Laker. Richard harvey was his
brother and Richard while here in America for a short time returned to
England where he died. He had two sons per this will. One a Thomas harvey
who married margaret Fletcher and a John Harvey. The Harveys from Lunenburg
Co. VA are believed to be descended from either John or Thomas harvey but no
records have been found to prove it. It is my belief that they are descended
from one of these but not sure yet which one. Richard harvey and his two
sons mostly stayed in VA. There are records that show there was a Richard
and Thomas and John Harvey in VA area that would become Lunenburg Co. VA
before 1700. ]

[ These deeds though I have never seen them appear that this
Richard may be the brother to Thomas that died. J. Blount was related to the
Blount line that married into Thomas harveys line. ]

[ This is Thomas harvey the son of Thomas harvey and sarah laker.
This Thomas I believe married Elizabeth Cole if I have it right. His son
were Thomas harvey who died with out issue. John Harvey who married mary
Bonner. Benjamin harvey who married I believe married julianna baker. Miles
harvey who married Elizabeth Baker. These bakers father was a William baker.
Many of the descendnats of the Harveys named their children William baker
harvey as did the line of Lunenburg Co. VA.. Miles Gale is the son of Sarah
Laker harvey and christopher Gale. Mary harvey sister to Thomas Harvey
married Col. Robert West and they settled in early Bertie Co. NC. Their
Children our Matthew West, Sarah West, and mary West. Elizabeth Gale
married I believe Zebulon Clayton. Penelope Gale married William Little.
They had a bunch of Little People. Sorry a bad pun ]

[ I am not sure how these harveys relate. They may be some of the
children of Thomas harvey and Margaret Fletcher. I am not sure if this
craven Co. is similar to the Craven Co. of SC pre 1750. Sometimes those
counties were indispute because of the fight on where the SC and NC borders
actually were. ]

> 2-6-1743-St. Helena S.C.-Wm Harvey m. Elizabeth

[ I was given data by another rsearcher about William harvey
and Elizabeth Mikel. Her maiden name Hazard and her and William lived in the
Beaufort Co. Area near I believe it was Port royal. William harvey was not
he William harvey who died in Edgefield Co. SC about 1782. I have a will
abstract for William and Elizabeth harvey. Elizabeth hazard was married
twice before she married William harvey. They made be related how ever. My
Thomas Giles Harvey may be related to a Lucas and Giles Taylor line that was
related to Ephraim Mikel Elizabeth hazards second husband. ]

[ This is believd to be Blassingame harvey son of Thomas harvey
and Elizabeth Blassingame.]
