Surnames: WINSTON
John WOODSON will 25 Nov 1715 rec. 5 Dec 1715 sons: Tarlton, Jacob, John, Robert, Josiah, Stephen, dtrs: Judith & Elizabeth, bro. Benjamin WOODSON
Judith WOODSON & William CANNON are my direct ancestors. Anne BAKER

Was an active member of the WOODSON group - we all kind of went by the wayside after the death of Mary Harland who held us all together-but it was a great decade (all US mail in those days!)

All the stuff about John WOODSON being a Dr & a gent is "phooy"- we all pooled our funds and hired british researchers - no lead as to his ancestry surfaced. Everything published in Henry Morton WOODSONs epic Woodsons and Connections was researched & every one of those fellows left records and they DID not come to America. All kinds of Woodsons of every spelling were checked in Britain (the results of this genealogy work in England were published in several issues of Woodson Watcher.) All that Devonshire - Dorsetshire stuff - panned out to nothing
Do you know where the fact that Sarah wife of John WOODSON-became Sarah Winston started? THIS IS IT -One of the Va quarterly magazines (Tylers or Va Mag of Hist - I have the article somewhere) bef 1900 - anyway they published the will of Isaac WINSTON who d 1760 in Hanover - EDITORAL TYPO - instead of typing Sarah HENRY-typed & published SARAH WOODSON - the next quarterly mag ran a retraction BUT "the cat was out of the bag" - folks who don't care about back-up data - pass that around like it was gold or something. It seems like somebody who d in 1760 would not have a daughter on the rolls of the living & dead in 1624 - But logic matters little to some people. Those that it has dawned on have just "dropped Isaac" but left Sarah -
The first mention anywhere of John WOODSON & Sarah is on the roll of living & dead - 1624 -The Muster of John WOODSON - Pierseys Hundred & both said they came in 1619 in the "George". This voyage of the " George" was interesting for it brought not only Gov YEARDLEY but - 80 "Bridewell Hospital Orphans" - these were young teenaged street urchans rounded up on the streets of London - my thought (and others) has always been that John WOODSON & Sarah were some of these London street ch. The "George" does NOT list a surgeon named anything remotely like John or WOODSON We do NOT know when John & Sarah WOODSON md - just that they were md by the muster of 1624.


???? Sarah ??? b c1590 Devonshire, England d 1659 Henrico Co VA John WOODSON, I b 1586 England d 18 Apr 1644 Pierseys Hundred, Pr. Geo. VA. Sarah & John left Engl 29 Jan 1619 in the ship “George”, They came with Sir Harvey, with John being a surgeon for the Militia in 1623.) This is not true!

Her name was Sarah ??. (There is no proof that she was a WINSTON, and her birth date would make her preceding our William WINSTON #1) She was b Devonshire, England, unk date, d 1660 Pr Geo. Co VA She was md to John WOODSON, and they sailed on The George, in 1618 and came to Jamestown, Va., where they lived, at the Flower Dew Hundred plantation.
