I saw your post about John Taylor. I am interested in this Taylor family because, according to family history, I am a descendent of a Thomas Taylor who was transported to Charles City County, VA in 1650. I do not know what happened to him afterwards.

However, records of a later Thomas Taylor appear in 1704 when he married Elizabeth Jones, widow of Thomas Chapprell of Charles City County. Elizabeth Jones was the daughter of James Jones, Sr. a prominent landowner in the county. She and Thomas had these children: John, Thomas, Katherine and Elizabeth. Thomas Taylor died in Surry County in about Feb. 1742/43.

Is this Taylor family related to your early Taylor of Chareles City County? Any help in identifying Thomas Taylor's (the one who died in 1742) parents will be appreciated.
