Re: Magets in Colonial Virginia

I think the problem about the origin of the Surry Maget family is because of John Boddie. In one of his books he says Samuel Maget was from Ireland. I thought that too because of him, so I too published it.

But my cousin, she's dead now, Virginia Savedge was Clerk of the Court of "centuries," and when I was younger she used to let me go through the Original records, and I found a document in which Samuel Maget says he left money in the Orphan's Court in his home for Fortune and Nicholas Maget, and that it was in Middleborough, Zeeland. Because of the script, at first glance it does look like Ireland, but there is no Middleborough in Ireland, but it is the capital of the province of Zeeland. This is Holland.

Hope this might clear up all this. Joel Watson
