(1) William ENGLAND was born about 1725, and married spouse (many say it was Elizabeth Lee). He removed to Goochland County and bought 400 acres of land on the James River from William Swanson for which he paid 100 pounds. The deed was made 18 Oct. 1762. According to this deed William was said "to be of Hanover County, Virginia". He died Goochland Co.Va in 1768.
His will dated 15 Jan.1768,probated 15 Aug.1768,left 133 acres of land to his son John in 1768) willed "1/2 of the tract I now live on to his son William and the other 112 to his son David.
John was named executor of his will. According to family legend (Ancestors, pp. 41-43) one of William's ancestors, a four-year old boy, "went onto a ship docked in English water at or near England and the ship left shore and they were so far out before they discovered the boy and would not go back so they brought him on to America and gave him the name of England, as he could not tell his name". This is legend, only; a four-year old boy would surely know his own name. Ref.: Goochland Co., Va., Deed Bk. 7, pp. 296, 297. 1762; Deed Bk. 8, pp. 510,511. 1759-1765; Goochland Co.

Subj: Re: William Anderson ENGLAND, Goochland Co., Va
Date: 5/7/99 6:44:41 PM Eastern Daylight Time From: (georgie) To: Hi Joe, I believe that your William Anderson England is not the son of Joseph England. He actually is the son of William England who died in 1768 and who left a will in Goochland Co. VA naming sons William Anderson, John and David and daughters Susanna Sea, Mary Page, Ann Page, Sary Tibe, Eliza Paschal, Lorana Toney, Peggy England, Mary England and Susanna England. You will note two named Mary. In the Douglas Register one Mary married James Page on 16 May 1765, and the other might be Marianne England who married Jo Clements on 29 Aug 1771 and it is recorded in the Douglas Register. The children of William Anderson England and Elizabeth Faires are listed in the Douglas Register. Dolores Rutherford, a wonderful researcher, <> has done some great abstracts of the Goochland Co. records on the Page, Hodges and England families. She may still have some copies available at very nominal fees...basically her cost to print them. My line follows William's son David who married Lucy Hodges and their son Stephen England who married Anna Harper and son David England who married Margaret Higgins.
Hope this helps. Georgie

I received from Eileen Lynch Gochanour,a geneologist who is selling her reference materials.
I have also 2 books,one on the John England and the other on Joseph. There is NO link to our
family that I can see yet. But never say never. I am ,as I said before fairly new at this geneology
but have been fortunate to have run into my family lines fairly frequently. I live in Park Ridge,Il.
near O'Hare Airport,but have not gotten down to the Springfield,Il. area where many of my family settled.
Elder Stephen England (David,William) is my line and he founded the 1st Christian Church in Sangamon Co. Il
on Elijah Brittin farm (Brittin is my direct line)Brittin Cemetary is still inexistance.
I do have a lot more from this book and also from a website(lost the address,but I think thru rootsweb,
I'll check later)and thru WFT CD #22 on which I found another relative who is linked to the family.
At this moment I seem to have the most info and just finished copying wills and some deeds.
Unfortunately the copies I was given are not real clear ,thus the copies are barely legibly.
Well enough for now,This should give you some food for thought!! Barbara
