    Weaver family researcher James Lee Weaver gave me information onThomas Weaver's family and ancestry, pointing me in November 2011 tohis detailed genealogy and resource site.  Information he has compiledthere from numerous sources provides the Weaver famly tree, some ofwhich I present here.  Note that this compilation expressesuncertainty about the wife of Samuel Weaver I, the grandfather ofThomas Weaver (b 1684).

    Samuel Weaver I was born on 3 Aug 1600 in Cardington, Shro, England.He died in 1670 in York, Va. He married Ann Jackson or ElizabethBygrave about 1628 in Rushbury, Shro, England.

    WEAVER and BYGRAVE: by 1623 Samwell Weaver and Elizabeth Bygrave areboth listed individually in the list of Living and Dead in Virginia ,Feb. 16, 1623 as living at Martin's Hundred. The Muster of 1624 againlists them, reporting that Samwell was 20 years old and had arrived inthe Bonny Bess, and that Elizabeth was 12 and had arrived in theWarwick. Martin's Hundred had been hit particularly hard in the Indianraids of March 22, 1622. The initial official report said that 77people had been killed, although it later transpired that some womenreported killed were instead being held in captivity. The assault ledto the temporary abandonment of the settlement. By 1623, 24 men andwomen were listed living at Martin's Hundred. Because of her youngage, and the fact that she is listed separately, we know thatElizabeth was an orphan. It is unclear whether she was an orphanpicked up on the streets of London and shipped to Jamestowne as aservant, or whether she arrived with her parents before the raid.Samwell and Elizabeth's son William Weaver (3648) was born about 1628,when Elizabeth would have been only 16. A land grant is recorded onJuly 2, 1635 to Samuel Weaver and is recorded in the Land OfficePatents No. 1, 1623-1643 (v.1 &2), p. 198 and p. 199 (Reel 1) It wasfor 650 acres and though the county was not designated, it was "lyingeasterly upon a creeke called Capt. John Wests Creeke (John West'sPlantation is cited in lists of those killed in 1622 massacre). Samuelis recorded as dying in York County, Virginia.

    Samuel Applied for permissiom to go beyond the seas as is found in theparish records of Cardington Parish in 1620 and in 1621 or 2, heboarded a ship in London as the indentured servant of William Harwoodbound for Virginia. Smuel Weaver is listed in William Harwood'shousehold in the Martin's Hundred muster dated 2/16/1623. He arrivedon the BonyBess.
