Thank you Ria. Regarding Wentworth's origins, I understand that Helen King's "Historical Notes of Isle of Wight County VA" includes a list of "will known merchants who settles in Isle of Wight County", including "George Purdie from Scotland and Capt Samuel Wentworth, thought to be from New England" (Purdie married one of the five daughters of the Wentworth/Calcote marriage).

So far as the location of where they lived, I have reference (said to be from Deed Book 14 p189)that Samuel Wentworth purchased Lot 70, Smithfield Town, Newport Parish in 1752 -it was left to his widow in 1752 and to her four surviving daughters when she died the following year.
