I am not researching these people, just entering information from one of my books "Houses Virginians Have Loved" by Agnes Rothery, 1954:

"A patent for this tract of nine thousand acres - the largest patent then on record - was issued in 1664 to Captain John Savage, the son of Thomas, and since then the name has been kept alive through numerous descendants. John Savage's first wife was Ann Elkington, and in her honor the present house was built in 1799 and named Elkington." (photograph of the house)
