Hi Howard,
I assume you are in search of info to "flesh" out your research subjects. Here are some things I have notcied in passing.

From Northampton County, VA Orders, Deeds & Wills, 1651-1654, Book 4, (summaries, if you want verbatim text, let me know.)
-p.187- A land dispute between Mr. George Parker & Capt. Stephen Charlton (guardian of John Walteme).
-p.189- A land dispute between Mr. George Parker & John West.
-p.194- Capt. John Goldsmyth deposed about the dispute between Anthony Johnson (free negro) vs. Mr. Robert Parker & George Parker. The Parkers detained John Casar (Johnson's slave for LIFE, yes blacks had slaves, too!) believing he was someone's indentured servant.

From Northampton County, VA Record Book, Orders, Deeds, Wills & c, Vol.5, 1654-1655 (summary)
-p.258- Virginia Governor's appointees for the 1656? Northampton County Court were recorded. "Mr. George Parker" listed as 1 of 17 Commissioners.

From N " Co. VA Record Book Court Cases, Vol.8, 1657-1664
-p.5- (1/29/1657-58) "_____ sold to Coll. Scarburgh 1 horse for Cattell which Cattle was turned into 2 Negros a man & a woman which Negros are now in the hands of Capt. George Parker."

There is more from 1663-1666 if you need it.
