In Essex County
we find a number of references to John Seayres Sears......
In the Virginia County Records: 1721-1800
Deed Book:1742-1751 page 164
We find reference to:
John Seayres as a witness on October 1 1743
Thomas Edmundson Gentleman
of Essex County and his wife Dorothy
of a transfer of land to
James Garnett: Gentleman
some rather complicated land exchanges:
So far this is the earliest reference I have found in the 1700s as to where anyone named John Seayres Sears might have been residing.
From that date onwards: there is a fair number of mentions in time.....
Since one had to be 21 years to witness something I believe: it would make this John Seayres at least born no later than 1721.....
Is this a John of the John Siers lineage?
Spotsylvania did border Fauquier County: so
Many times one can see persons originally named SAYER
tranformed into SAWYERS
In this case the spelling makes it clear the sound was SEARS and not SAWYER
