Re: Tudor/Pearson/Justice/Brewer/Wray 1700's

According to the 1850 Brunswick Co., VA census, the Richard Tudor mentioned in your post is a son of Peterson and Sally Tudor. The 1850 Census states the following Tudor households:

1. Peterson (age 51)
Sally (age 40)
Hester M. (age 14)
Margaret (age 13)
James R. (age 9)
Richard (age 6)
John (age 1)

2. Robert (age 20)

Robert is listed in the 1850 census as living next door to a couple of members of the Pearson family.

Richard Tudor (born circa 1844) had the following children, according to

1. Charles Tudor, born 6-21-1869
2. Fort Tudor, born April, 1875
3. David Tudor, born March, 1877
4. William Tudor, born December 11, 1877
5. John Tudor, born 9-18-1882
6. Richard Tudor, born June 18, 1884

NOTE: does not mention any Gertrude Tudor.

I have seen posts claiming that James R. Tudor and Richard Tudor served in the Confederate Army during the Civil War.

Robert Tudor (age 20 in 1850) married a woman named Nancy (surname unknown); they had the following children:

1. Banister Tudor, born February, 1860
2. William Tudor, born July, 1867 (on this one I'm guessing: reports the mother's name as Nancy, but shows no father's name; however, there are no other Nancy Tudor's in Brunswick Co., VA at that time, to my knowledge).

The following additional Tudor's are listed at

E. Tudor, daughter of Field and A. Tudor, born February, 1871 (could this be another child of Richard?)
Ora Tudor, daughter of James and ___ Tudor, born 10-5-1871
Lucy Tudor, daughter of W.H. and Virginia Tudor, born 9-4-1892
Mary Tudor, daughter of W.H. and Lucy Tudor, born 10-15-1890
Virgie Tudor, daughter of C.M. and N.T. Tudor, born April, 1891

I am most curious as to where Peterson Tudor came from. He would have been born circa 1799 - the first census he shows up in is the 1840 Brunswick Co., census. He is of an age that he could have been the son of my GGGGG grandfather, Robert Tuder, but Robert Tuder had no son named Peterson, to my knowledge.
