Re: Family search, please help

In Reply to: Re: Family search, please help by Norman Moyle of 613

Norman, the 1662 date is correct. I'm researching the Read family of that period and county, and found reference of dealings that the Read family had with Peter Moyle's widow and her new husband Francis Trehan. I am checking to see if there is any other relationship between the two families.

This is additional information I have:

Charles City Court Orders 1655-1658, p. 14, 17 Sept. 1655: 500 Acres of land due Peter Moyle per indentures produced and proved for importation of 10 people.

P. 49, 12 April 1656: Probate is granted Elizabeth Moyles of the last will and test. of her late husband Peter Moyle, deceased, this day proved in court.

p. 56, 25 June 1656: Deed of Gift 25 June 1656: Nicholas Poole "in consideration of my good will and affection to the three children of Peter Moyle, dec. and in consideration of marriage with Elizabeth the relic of the said Moyle" gives 3 cows to the children. Rec. 27 Jun 1656.

(the above puzzles me: Records show that Eliz. married Francis Trehan. Did Poole and Eliz. marry and then he passed away and she marries #3 Francis Trehan?)

Charles City Co. Court Orders 1661-1664, p. 340: Abstract - Order that Frances Trehan appear personally with Wm. Roberts and Jon Read orphans in his present custody to settle difference between them and orphans of Peter Moyle.

p. 371: this is a long abstract between Richard Pace and Thos. Madder. "I Francis Treham who married the Relict of Thos. Madder do assigne over all my right of title of this deede unto Alexander Davidson , etc" Recorded 17 March 1662/3. (see next entry)
p. 372: I Eliz. Trehan the Extrx of Peter Moyle withinmentioned decd do hereby consent to and confirm the Act of my husband to Alexander Davidson, etc. signed Elizabeth x Trehan Recorded 17 March 1662/3. (note: in the above abstract I see no reference to Peter Moyle or entries leading up to this.)

p. 391: Abstract "Francis Trehan and Eliz. his wife, formerly the wife of Peter Moyle do in open court consent to the binding of there sonne Peter Moyle as an apprentice to Dorrell Young for 9 years to learn his trade. Young to "teach him to reade and write competently," etc. (This Dorrell Young is the son-in-law of my Peter Read and Dorrell Young died in 1677.)

Charles City County Court Orders 1664-1665 Fragments 1650-1696: page 511
Peter Moyle plt. late servant unto Stephen Hamelin deft. is adjudged free and the deft. to pay costs.

I've checked all the other early Charles City records, and I find no further mention of Peter Moyle. Perhaps after becoming a free man he moved on to another county.

Hope this helps someone!
