Subject: [Q-R] Quakers in Virginia/North Carolina
Date: Tue, 26 Jun 2001 08:10:03 -0700 (PDT)
When did the Quakers come into the Albermarle Sound
area of North Carolina? My ancestor, Robert WILLSON
is listed in the Perquimins County as early as 1688
and I think was already a Quaker when he came from
Chuckatuck, Nansemond County, Virginia. He was 6
when he came from England on the ship Paul in 1635
with his mother Katherine and brother Richard. They
are listed as being of the Church of England then.
So I quess my question is....Were there Quakers in
that part of Virginia before 1688? And what were the
names of the meetings?
Thanks, Sally ()
