Thanks for all the good information. Since there are several major lines of the Moody's it has been hard to trace. What I have is from the Virginia lines and the Galveston Texas lines. Most of the referrals come from the
William & Mary Quarterlies Volume 27 pp242-244 and Williamsburg Wills V III p 26. and Essex Co.VA records.
Dr. Giles Moody is listed as a Frenchman and had a grant of 1000 acres in New Kent Co Va.1655, for transporting 20 person, so he evidently was moneyed. New Kent of course was of York the year before and then Hanover after that.
There is a manuscript by Helen Foster Snow consisting of approx 29 pages that list 1.The descendants of Dr. Giles Moody of York and notes on James City County, 2.The Moodys of Albemarle, Fluvanna and Bedford Counties, Virginia and Kentucky including a George Moody of Virginia and Grainger Co. TN. and Mildred Moody and James Boyd of Virginia and Kentucky, who may have been descended of Edward or Edmund Moody listed in "Immigrants from the Port of Bristol."
3. The Lound and Blanks Families of Virginia and 4.the James River Tradition.
There was a John Moody-1593-1655 England to Roxbury Mass 1633 who married Sarah Fox? and I have no idea who these are or how to get hold of any of the above information.
"Historical Collections of Virginia" say that the group who were in Galveston, Texas descended from John Moody, one of the Headrights of Christopher Reynolds, possibly in 1622?
May have been brother to Thomas Moody of Charles City Co. Va. whose children took land in Prince George Co. Va.
Robert Moody and William Moody were recorded in records of Essex Co. Va. Some of the Thomas Moody group can be found in Chowan/Bertie and Gates Co. N.C. before showing up in the South Carolina records.
There is also a Thomas Moody and wife Mary who came to South Carolina by George Lyne, on the ship "Carolina" 1684. Received grant for land 1696. Reference: S.Carolina Land Warrants 1692-1711.
Phillip Moody died in Isle of Wight and I have a list of his children. But you are right about not finding a Humphrey or Matthew. I do know that the families my Penelope were connected to came from Nansemond and Isle of Wight Co. Va. Giles Moody's sons were born about 1625-27 and later. These boys were probably born in England since their father did not receive land until 1655.
This require a lot of further research. Thanks again.
