I ran across something in that I had not previously run across. Have not researched the Maxey side of the family for some time so was curious what this was and where the info possibly came from. They list an Edward Maxey Born in 1657 at Henrico Co., Va, USA: died 10 December 1725 in Henrico Co., Va, USA who was married in 1689 to an Elizabeth Ann Wyatt. She was born in Henrico Co., Va. USA in 1671. There was no death date.

An additional record at the same site has an Edward Maxey born 1650 in Henrico, Va died 10 December 1726 in Virgina. He was married about 1680 to an Elizabeth Ann Wyatt, born 1651 and died about 1670 both in Goochland Co., Va. - the death date is just not possible on this particular chart. They are also listed as having a daughter, Anne Maxey, born 1673 in Goochland.

In this scenario, Edward's parents are listed as William Maxey, born 1625 in Powhattan County, Va, and Elizabeth Palmer Johnson, born 1627 also in Powhattan. They were married in 1656.

Elizabeth Wyatt's parents are shown to be Edward Wyatt and Jane Conquest (?). Edward Wyatt is said to have been born between 1618 and 1619 in Kent Co., England. His death date is January 1686 /87 in Gloucester Co., Va. He married Jane in 1644. Jane was born in 1622 in Boxley Parish, Kent, England. She died in 1688, also in Gloucester County, Virginia.

They had a son, Edward Maxey, Jr who was born in 1685 in London, England and died 18 April 1737 in Goochland Co., Va. He was married to Mary Susannah Gates in 1710. She was the daughter of a John Gates / Gaites born in 1621 in Virginia. Mary was born in 1675 at Peterboro, North Hampton, England and died 30 May 1743 in Goochland Co., Va.

They had a daughter, Agnes Maxey, born approximately 1697 in Mannakin, Henrico Co., Va. She died 17 March 1739 / 40 in Essex Co., Va.

Agnes was married to a William Radford on 1 November 1719.

This site also lists some Maxey's in England in the 1500's.

There is a Ralph Maxey, born in 1508 at Fairhurst, Lancaster, England, Great Britain. He had a daughter, Celilia Maxey, born in 1543 in Fairhurst. She died in 1563 at York, England, Great Britain and was married to a Thomas Nelson.

There is also a William Maxey, born 1593 in London, England, who married an Elizabeth Broughton about 1618.

I have the first edition of The Maxey's of Virginia, but have not seen the later editions. I understand that there is a village of Maxey, Cambridgeshire, UK. Situated between Peterborough & Stamford.

Can anyone tell me what this is about? I did not see any source information.
