Richard, it appears that based on the age of the "Chris: Reinhold, 24," who arrived in America in 1635 aboard the Speedwell, that you have calculated Christopher Reynolds, Sr., as having been born in 1611. However, this does not appear to correspond with the 1622 date of the arrival of Christopher Reynolds, Sr., aboard the John & Francis which indicates that Christopher Reynolds, Sr., assuming that he was atleast age 21 upon arrival, was born prior to 1601. If Christopher Reynolds, Sr., was the same individual as the Chris. Reinhold, age 24, who arrived aboard the Speedwell in 1635, he would have been only eleven years old when he arrived in Colonial Virginia aboard the John & Francis in 1622. This seems unlikely as he is listed the following year, in the 1623 census, as one of the thirty three original residents of Warrosquyoake County. Censuses usually refer to tithables, i.e. persons above age twenty one years of age. However, this was a very early census. Does the reference for Hotten's 1635 Speedwell list where the ship sailed from? The "Chris: Reinhold" spelling indicates that it may be a German spelling of the name? However, that does seem unlikely? If we can determine the destination or place of arrival for the Speedwell, that would be useful information in determining if Chris: Reinhold, born 1611, is the same individual as Christopher Reynolds, Sr. I tried to look up an online listing of Hotten's list for the 1635 Speedwell, but the genweb.net site which lists his publication was not functioning!
