The sons of John Cannon & Hester Pledge, William and John II, had some land dealings with a John Simcock, who lived nearby. Whether or not John Simcock was related to them is unknown. He was about their age. (The John Samuel Kennon that you mentioned either never existed, or if he did, was not connected to this Cannon family. Ask for proof of relationship that comes from real records.)

06 Sep 1731        Henrico Co., VA. Abraham Childers of Henrico, planter, John Whitley of same, planter, William Cannon of Goochland Co., planter, and John Cannon of Henrico Co., planter, to John Simcock of Henrico, glasure, 20 pounds for 300 acres on Four Mile Creek bounded by Springey branch, Miery branch, the creek, said Whitley, Thos. Bethell and Philemon Perkins. 50 acres of the 300 were granted to Abraham Childers, father of said Abraham, by John Whitley; 50 acres granted to said Childers Sr. by William Cannon; 50 acres by John Cannon; 50 acres granted by one Perkins out of a larger grant to Perkins of 500 acres; all of which descended to said Abraham Jr. as sole heir by his father's will and is now in possession of John Simcock. Wit: Wm. Cocke, John Williams, Phil. Smit /s/ Abraham Childers, John Cannon /s/ John (I) Whitley. The wife of Childers relinquished her dower right. [This abstract may have been incorrectly worded because a deed from the same book shows John Simcock and William Cannon selling this same land, stating both were BUYERS of the land and that Abraham Childers, John Whitley, and John Cannon were sellers.] From: Henrico Co., VA, Deed Book W & D 1725-1737:213.

04 Jun 1733 Henrico Co., VA. John Simcock of St. Peter's Parish, James City Co., glazier, and William Cannon of Goochland Co., planter, to William Frazure of Bruton Parish, York Co., planter, 40 pounds for 300 acres on 4 Mile Creek bounded by Miery branch, Springey branch, Philemon Childers, Philemon Perkins. Land was bought by them of Abraham Childers, John Whitley, and John Cannon [the Cannons were brothers and step-sons of Abr. Childers Jr.] Wit. Fran's Redford, William Redford, John Cannon. Wife of Simcock relinquished her dower right. From: Henrico Co., VA, Book W & D 1725-1737:391.
