!LIFE: I quote from Roy Stevenson King's "THE ANCESTRAL PILGRIMAGE ALONGLIFE'S
PATHWAY", pub. 1939, Atlanta, GA. and in Library of Congress, DAR Libraryand the Maryland Historical Society Library.
"Beginning with Robert and Hannah we can carry on the King line withaccuracy by means of deeds, land grants and wills taken from varioussources. Morrison's pen written Manuscript in the New England Historicaland Genealogical Society at Boston; Browns Genises of the United Statesand other
Robert was a Major in the COLONIA MILITIA and also a Justice. He "tookup" land in Northumberland co., Charles City co., Westmoreland co., andStafford co., VA.
Major Robert King has been accepted by the National Society Daughters ofFounders and Patriots of America, see National #3117 and 3225.
Robert King's father was educated in England and lived in Ireland.
There may be more children than the 4 listed.
NOT DOCUMENTED:Robert is supposed to be the son of Francis who marriedDorothy Aston, kin of Sir Walter Aston. Francis is the son of CaptainJohn King, son of Captain William King, Captain of the ship "Diamond"that perished at sea upon the point of Ushant, sometime between June 8thand November 23, 1609. Captain William was the first Virginia ancestorof the Kings in America, and was the son of John King of Thame, who wasthe son of Sir Ralph King. (and so it goes--back to the King family whosettled in Thame, Oxon in 1440).
The above is an excellent book of which I will copy for anyone interested.
