We're talking Lancaster Virg not Penn.
You asked where do we find the name John Light in Lanc VA?
In 1666 a John Light is transported to Lanc Va.
He did not leave a will in Lanc Va (perhaps in England)
He left many tith records except in the years
he is away selling "silk, etc" in New York and Philadelphia.
John left some jury records where he and Sir Edward Dale and
Colonel Ball(Washingtons grandpa) got thirsty at a hot
boring grand jury. The old cavalier John Light shouted
"Drink for the Jury!!!" Ball produced a jug.
Old John (born 1606 in Charleton Mackrell Parish, Som Engl)
left his last record in 1691.
In 1691 the name John Light appears twice.
1691 (1 tithe) "John Light" (b1606)
1692(3 tithes) "John Light"
But, George Junior was the eldest grandson, and therefore inherited the Lancaster
The last and only other mention of John Light (ba 1676) is in the 1736 Amelia tithe.
forgive my enthusiasm,its late at night
PS My eldest nephew, my eldest brother, my father and grandfather are all named
