Note: Posted by Carolyn Word Parkman:
I would like proof of this John Word, and John Word Jr. who m. Ann Chiles. I have the book by Mary Florence Word, "John Bryson Word, his ancestors and descendants" ( he was my gr-gr-grandfather) and I also bought a Word Family Tree from the Va. Archives which was a Xerox copy in four sections that is about 28 inches by about 5 ft. very impressive but no proof for the first 2 generations from the immigrant John Wor (Word? ) in 1652 to the birth of Charles in 1710. Can anyone fill in this gap with proof for the years from 1652 to 1710?
I am a descendant of Charles Word, New Kent Co. Va. I am seeking proof that he is descended from the immigrant listed in Greer's " early Va. immigrants" as John Words, sponsored by Nathaniel Bacon, also proof of his son John being married to Ann Chiles. All published references I have found regarding this Ann Chiles spells her husband name as Ward. St. Peter's Parish records lists the birth of Charles b. 1710, and John b. 1738, Charles b. 1740. Charles is my line and he was killed in the battle of Kings Mountain. He and brother John fought under Col. Washington and survived the battle in which Gen. Braddock was slain, and most of the English and americans were wiped out. They were called the Va. Blues, and I can find nothing about that militia.

John Word III (b.1680, New Kent Co., VA) m. Ann Chiles. I show their children as Charles, William, Jasper (James?), Thomas, and John; I have no listing for Catherine, but am grateful for the info! :) I am descended by way of Charles (b. 14 Mar 1710, New Kent Co., VA; d. 1792) m. Sarah. The date which you have entered next to Charles' name (9/12/1738), is very close to what I have recorded as the birthdate of Charles' son John (b. 22 Oct 1738, New Kent Co., VA; d. 01 Aug 1821, Wilson Co., TN) m. 09 Nov 1779, VA, Frances "Fanny" Collins. It was John Word III's son William, Charles' brother, who married an "Elizabeth." I would be very interested in a copy of your Word pedigree: it looks like we are cousins! I have a great deal of info on the Words, and would be very interested in sharing it with you! Please email me! rkmchaney@@buddhist.com

The bulk of my data came also from Lesbia Word Roberts and Lila Word Turner.
Lesbia's data says John III was born in New Kent, married Ann Chiles abt. 1732 in Caroline Co., Va. They resided in Spotsylvania Co. where all the children were
born. Lived there 1741-1756. Removed to Halifax Co. in 1756. He died in Halifax Co. 1790. She gives references to Spotsylvania Co., Va. records 1721-1800 --also various deeds witnessed in Spotsylvania Co. 1728 thru 1741. All these sources list the 7 children of John Word III, with the date for your Thomas being b. 1746/7. It is this Thomas who married Lockie Harrison. John III's brother, Charles b. 1710 in New Kent, married a Sarah (unk.) They had 6 children, with one of them being another Thomas, b. 1741. This Thomas married a Frances Dickinson in 1831.
I'm descended from a Charles Word, b. 9/l2/l738 d. 7/l8/l778. He was married to a Mary Culver, b. l744, d. l8l0. Their son, John, married China Renfro. He was born l0/25/l767, d. 5/2/l836. A son of this union was Samuel, b. 9/30/l805, d. 7/3l/l876. He was married to Elizabeth McHargue, b. l0/7/l8l7, d. 6/5/l852 Their son, another John, b. l0/24/l843, d. l0/l/l898, married to Margaret Coffer--my great grandmother. . My info. comes from National Portrait of Distinguished Americans, Vol. III, and Bancroft's History of U.S.Also from grandmother, Elizabeth Word's, DAR records #'s 240 and 7l8.

and wife, Sarah. He was baptized at St. Peter's Parish, New Kent Co., Va. on 5/14/1710. Charles Word Sr. was the son of John Word Jr. and wife unknown, living in New Kent Co., Va. in 1710. John Word Jr. was the son of John Word, Sr., who came from the town of Lanaff, Province of Glamorganshire, Wales between 1623-1666 (probably in 1652) as a patentee of William Gaulett, who also brought his father.

Note: Janice Cleave reports that Peter was born about 1500 in So. England.
Peter Word and his son John Word are reported to have sailed from the Port of Llandaff in Wales by Robert Watson and others who have studied Word genealogy, however, our family tradition indicates that the Words came from Scotland, thus traveling down from Scotland to the best port on the Isle to depart from Wales to the new world at Llandaff Port in the City of Llandaff in the Province of Glamorganshire, Wales.
Posted by Charlotte Patton on July 31, 1998:
I am descended from that John Word. I was recently in England and got one small lead. There was a settlement of Flemmish immigrants in Wales. There was a Wenken de Worde (who came from Alsace France a Flemmish area) in London in the 1600;s I think who took over Caxton's printing when he died. Since our ancestors apparently sailed from Glamorganshire Wales we should probably try to find info about the Flemmish settlement there. I am looking. I will be a little more helpful later. Charlotte
