I hope that all of you that ordered my book recently have either received it of will very soon. Please let me know if you need anything.
My goal of charging enlugh to pay for the printing etc has been reached. Now that I have some extra books, I would like to mail a book to some genealogy libraries. If you have a favorite library near you, please send me the address, and a dedication to some person such as Francie Lautner or Betty Behr. I think it's about time they got the recognition they deserved.
I plan to keep looking for more of those old Virginia records. That reminds me I should mention some new theories that didn't make the book.
I was rereading the 1895 article Lyte of Lytescary, (Somersetshire Archaeolgical Society) when I read that the John Light, ho was Paul Lyte's brother, came to Barbados to find a bride. Thomas Baskerville, his cousin, wrote that John was a failed woolen draper in Bristol, and made a success out of Innkeeping in Bristol. Baskerville describes a mill for making beer from barley in a letter. I plan to read Baskervilles unpublished manuscripts in London soon. Does anybody want to join me? We may have some volunteers as hosts also. Anyway, I noticed severa. clues in the Lancaster records about John Light (transported in 1666) sold beer. Two records describe john Light selling 1)"drink for the grand jury" and another 2) selling drink at the sale of William Fauntleroy in Richmond county close by. A look at the years he was missing from the Lancaster tithes, showed that he was in England those years. He aparently may have had several businesses at the same time.
I ought to get cracking on posting that article on the gen forum for all to see.
yours, Steve Light
