After you mentioned the rebel Thomas Tedder, I wondered against which faction was he rebelling? Following Elizabeth's death, ca 1600, there were coups and revolts for 50 years. The Civil Wars 1636-1651 ended with the Battle of Worcester, and Cromwell (2?) took over.
Wikipedia history reports that following the battle of Worcester, 8,000 (mostly Scottish) were shipped to New Engl., Bermuda, and the Carribean as indentured servants. I think at that time the Plymouth and the James River plantations were lumped together.
So the period of 1651-1660 might be fruitful period to search for transport listing.
Conjecture: If our ancestors were fighting for the Royalists until the defeat, might they have been Tudors? Who and how decided to register the name in Virginia?
