Book: 17th Cent. Isle of Wight by Boddie.
Martha Key, wife of Thomas Key, Planter of Warwick River, 2 Dec 1628. Lying on the E. side of Warwicksquicke River opposite against land of Capt. Nathaniel Basse next to land of Rice Jones. Her first personal dividend being an Ancient Planter. This is listed under Land Grants 1628-1674. (This land grant was not seated).
Whereas a marriage is intended between Capt. Robert Kae and Mrs. Ann Goodrich, relict of Capt. John Goodrich. Capt. Kae obliges himself to Francis Wren penalty of 40,000 lbs. tbco. on condition that if he shall depart this life before said Ann, his estate shall make good immediately after his death. 1 March 1697/98. John Wren, Charles Chapman.
Robert Kae of Surry gives to Marjorie, dau. of Ed. Miller, his goddaughter, a cow. 9Apr 1678.
Mary Clay of Isle of Wight, widow authorizes Robert Kae of Surry County to be lawful atty. to object to suit of Wm. Clay 8 Jan 1678.
In a court record dated 9 Aug 1664, Robert Kae gives his age as 36.
In 1702, the magistrates and militia of IOW county prepared an address of loyalty to Queen Anne, Robert Kae, Captain in the militia was one of the signers.
Captain John Guttreidge was the first of this family in the county. He patented 350 acres 23 Mar 1654 and was a captain of militia. The date of his death does not seem to be shown in the records, if so it may be found by checking the index. His widow married Captain Robert Kae, and thirdly, George Riddick. John Goodrich, his son, was a Burgess in 1695 but died before 1696. John Jr., in his will mentions his brother, Robert Kae who was evidently the son of his mother Anne by her second marriage.
Hope this helps. Ria :)
