I'm also interested in possibly finding out some information on any early SCOTT's in Accomac Co. since one of my ancestors Thomas BLACKLOCK seems to have married an Anne Christian SCOTT, possibly born in Accomack County in 1635.

The name MILLINGTON is also in this line, but maybe after they moved to Hanover county. The daughter Elizabeth MILLINGTON had a father named John.

I'm interested in finding more information on where in Accomac County some of the earliest settlers settled (for lack of a better word). Are there any land records for late 17th century properties? Where would I go about finding them (outside of Accomac county that is)? What about a good topographical map of the county? Any ideas?

I've got Virginia's Eastern Shore, but it's not very good at letting you know where the places it mentions are located. Awful lack of maps. The one I've seen online is pretty pathetic too. I'd love to see a decent one.

My first ancestor was Thomas Blacklock, found in 1623 on the Accomac rolls. I'd love to hear from anyone else out there who may have done research on this topic or is a descendant of this individual.

I am searching for info on Thomas Palmer (b. 1590 in London, England/d. 1633 in Accomac County, Va) His wife was Joane Jordan (Palmer) who came over from England with Thomas. I know of their child John but don't know if there were other children. Any info greatly appreciated!!! kim

I am also a desendant of Thomas Blalock who migrated to Accomac County from Carlisle,England in the early 1600's.
We are trying to fill in the gaps of our line who went to NC
and SC in the 1700's,GA in the early 1800's,and ARK in the late 1800's.
Any info is most welcome.

Dear Charlene,

For the past four months I've been burning up the internet about the Blaylock geneology. If you check records like you will find that Thomas Blaylock does appear
both with the Y and without the Y. The dates are all the same. I feel it was actually Charles Millington Blaylock who
for unknown reasons added the Y which appears in my name. He was the son of Millington Blalock who is buried in Person County N.C. along with his second wife Elizabeth. In
fact all the North Carolina Blalocks are buried there except
my great, great,grandfather, Charles Millington Blaylock. He was buried in Arkansas. I have several other facts I can share with you. Please e-mail me at your convience.Oops! I allmost forgot to mention the family line back to AccomacK
Thomas Blalock, Thomas Blalock Jr.,John William Blalock,then
comes Millington Blaylock, Charles Millington Blaylock, Alfred Newton Blaylock, John Quincy Blaylock, John Preston Blaylock,then finally me.

Thank You, your distant cousin,

Born and raised on Virginia's Eastern Shore....go to Ghotes site:
They have lots of maps on their site. It takes time to move them around but you get a definite feel for the different towns, etc. from this.

Good hunting.
