Mary, I soooo appreciate you sharing all of this info! I have a few questions/comments/additions -- mostly relating to the wife of William Cammack:

-- Per a listing on the Royston forum by Dave Dougherty, William Cammack's wife was Susanna Lomax. The fact that William's daughters Ann & Elizabeth and son Francis named daughters Susanna AND William's son George named a son Lomax, seems to add some credibility to the theory.

Also, these two entries from Essex County Records show a relationship between the Lomax and Cammack families:

p. 64
John Lomax served as a Justice of the Peace along with Paul Micou.
(Paul was the uncle of William Cammack, married to his aunt Margaret)

p. 81
Power of Atty. Margarett Micou to John Lomax, Gentleman, to ask sale by “my husband Paul Micou” to Collins.
9 Oct 1712

And this entry from "Old Churches, Ministers & Families of Virginia" (p. 406):

... Lunsford Lomax, son of John, married Judith Micou, daughter of the first Paul Micou, who settled in Virginia, and who was a French surgeon and Huguenot ...

And this from Essex County Virginia, Book No. 12, p. 4 shows a connection to the Bucknor/Buckner family (William's daughter Margaret married a Buckner):

Lease and Release. 7-8 July 1704. John Lomax of Essex Co., Gent., and Elizabeth his wife, late Elizabeth Wormly the dau of Ralph Wormly, late of Virginia, Esquire, dec’d., sell John Taliaferro, Gent., a tract of land known as Portobacco in Essex Co., 3400 acres now in poss of sd Lomax and Eliz his wife and Gawen Corbin of Middlesex, Gent. And also 400 acres in Petso parish, Gloucester Co. now, or late, in possession of Samuell Smith and Ann his wife which was formerly given to the said Eliz Lomax by Thomas Dawkins decd formerly husband of sd Ann Smith.

The Release states “that whereas a Marriage hath been lately had and solemnized between the said John Lomax and Elizabeth.” That the land is transferred to John Taliaferro that we have full power to transfer it to Richard Buckner gent who will hold it for sd John Lomax and Eliz his wife and after their deaths to the use of their future children.

BUT the only Susanna Lomax I could find in the area was the daughter of John Lomax and Elizabeth Wormley. And this entry, complicates things:

Genealogical & Historical Sketches
of the Lomax Family
by Joseph Lomax
Grand Rapids, Michigan

p. 60
JOHN LOMAX, son of Catherine Gray and her husband Rev. John Lomax, was born in North Shields, England, Feb 4 1674. He died on his plantation, Port Tobago, VA, 25 Sep 1729. His body was buried in the garden on his homestead. He married Elizabeth Wormley, 1 Jun 1703, daughter of Catherine Lunsford and her husband Hon. Ralph Wormley, of Catherine Co., VA. Catherine Lunsford was an only daughter of Sir Thomas Lunsford. Elizabeth Wormley was born in 1682, and died in 1740. The children are --
Lunsford Lomax, b. 5 Nov 1705, d. 10 Jun 1772.
Catherine Lomax, b. 5 Oct 1707
Susannah Lomax, b. 11 Sep 1710.
John Lomax, b. 4 Jan 1712, died in infancy
Frances Lomax, b. 9 Jun 1715. The last four have no descendants.

"The last four have no descendants." If that's true, then Susanna Lomax wasn't William Cammack's wife. Hmmmmmm.

Thoughts, anyone??
