I appreciate your timely response. I will check back through my files but I know I don't have alot on the Rookings. I copied the following from a post:

Researching John BAIRD b. Abt. 1675, d. Bef. Sept. 15, 1738

John married Margaret ROOKINGS, probally dau. of William Rookings III of "Flying Point (Rookings Plantation)at Chippokes Creek in Surry County VA.

Four sons- Rook, Reuben, John and Ephraim
John lived at Jamestown, James City County VA until 1717/18 when he moved to Chippokes Creek in Prince George County VA.

I found a new set of books on Jamestown and a list of all the people that had lived and owned property there. I found that John Baird (carpenter) and Margaret Rookings Baird bought property in 1707 and lived there until 1717. They then moved to a plantation across Chippokes Creek from Flying Point, the Rookings Plantation. John and Margaret lived on the Prince George side of the Creek. I see the names of Rookings in my Baird research so I think they probably were connected. I ran out of time and didn't get to go through the books thoroughly. I found them at the end of the day. I will be going back soon and will check for any info. listed on the Rookings. I live near the Library of VA and can go more often than some. If you have any thing that you would like for me to research on the Rookings, please let me know. You can contact me at
