You and I corresponded briefly a while back -- since then I have recovered my lost genealogy database. This note in particular:
1714 Dec 16: Wm. JOELL purchased 550 acres in Elizabeth River Parish, Norfolk Co., Virginia, near mouth of Broad Creek & Horse Bridge Creek from William GODFREY. [This was the Tanner's Creek property willed to son Richard.]
The William Joell above was father to Thomas Joell who married Sarah Pitt (whose mother was second wife of Edward Hinson). Anyway, as you know Thomas & Sarah were the parents of Sarah who was first wife of Nicholas Albouy.
I have never found any Godfreys in Bermuda prior to your Peter. I suspect he may have been from Virginia or North Carolina & settled in Bermuda after marrying the daughter of a fellow mariner.
