Hello. Our COBBS/COBB line first came to VA in 1664... into the Williamsburg area. His wife was a WHITE. They later moved up to Henrico. They were members of the Bruton Church there in Williamsburg where they helped to build it and he and his descendents and related kin served on the vestry there for many, many generations. In fact, many are buried there. Then, some of their descendents moved into Halifax, then to Lunenburg. The first COBBS/COBB here was Ambrose COBBS and his maternal uncle was Rev. Robert HUNT... the first rector of Jamestown who baptized Pocahontas. Rev. Robert HUNT and his brothers Stephen HUNT arrived here in 1607 and his brother Thomas HUNT arrived here in the second ship in 1608. The early COBBS/COBBs intermarried for many generations with the descendents of Pocahontas among other great surnames like PHILLIPS, FRITH, BEACH, LONG, JACOBS, and SMITH. These family lines attended Bruton Church together and some lines even went back to Kent England together.

So, right now... that's all that I have...

this was given to us by a cousin...

This is my cousin's site that has our COBBS/COBB line...,+VA+,+%22native+american%22,+howell,+cobb&hl=en&lr=&start=20&sa=N

My COBBS/COBBs line are related to Howell COBB... that's why the Howell surname fits so well.,+VA+,+%22native+american%22,+howell,+cobb&spell=1,+VA+,+%22native+american%22,+howell,+cobb&spell=1

Hope this helps.
