Harrisons of 1600s and early 1700s

I am interested in the Harrison and the Taylor families who lived in the border area between Prince George and Surry counties in the 1600s and early 1700s. Benjamin Harrison was active in Surry County affairs and his name appears on a number of public documents along with a Thomas Taylor, who I believe, may have been the father of my Thomas Taylor. My Thomas Taylor married Elizabeth Jones Chappell in 1704. She waqs the widow of Thomas Chappell and the daughter of James Jones.

Captain Thomas Harrison and John Scott received a patent for 1700 acres on the S. side of the Blackwater Swamp in 1702 in the vicinity of my Thomas Taylor. In 1704 William Harrison and Rebecca Harrison witnessed a bond which Thomas Taylor signed when he married Elizabeth Jones Chappell. So it appears that there was a close relationship between the Harrison and the Taylor families. Any information on the Thomas Taylor who was associated with Benjamin Harrison - or on the relationship between the Taylors and the Harrisons will be appreciated.
