In his will George Menefie directed that "the ship Desire, now lying before "Buckland" be dispatched for England," and bequeathed to "my daughter Elizabeth Menefie all my lands at Westover, at James City and at York River." The will further directed that Menefie's house at "Buckland" be a "joint stock between my daughter Elizabeth and my son-in-law [stepson] Henry Perry," named his wife Mary Extrx and guardian to his daughter, and requested that he be buried at Westover.1

John Harvey" as governor.)4

Birth*circa 1622Capt. Henry (2) Perry was born circa 1622 at James City Co, VA. According to Dorman, a son was born to William Perry & his first wife "Mrs. Perry" and shown as "infans Perry," between the massacre of 22 March 1621/2 and the census of 1623/24. Dorman said 'infans" meant son and assumed he died young and William Perry had another son, Henry, by his second wife Izabella (Smyth) Pace, who married 3rd George Menefie, who named a son-in-law (meaning stepson) Henry Perry in his will. However, Henry Perry was shown as Henry Perry, Gent., when he repatented the tract "Buckland" in 1642, which seems to imply he was of age according to his title of Gentleman. Being a son of William Perry by his second wife Izabella would have made him too young to have been of age in 1642. Being a son by William Perry's first unnamed wife is also consistent with Capt. Francis Pott's will of 1658 in N'hamp Co, giving "my cousin (nephew) (Capt.) Henry Perry and his wife, my dear friend Mrs. Elizabeth Perry £3 sterling."4,3 
Census w/mother*1623/24Henry was listed with his mother in the census of 1623/24 at James City Co, VA. Dorman shows that William Perry came to Virginia in 1611, but as he returned to England following the massacre of 22 March 1621/22 on business for the Coloney, he was not listed in the census of 1623/24 or in the muster of 1624/25. "Mrs. Perry" and "infans Perry," however, along with Francis Chapman, were at James City, 1623/24. Dorman also states that "infans" usually means son.4 
Land patented*1637He patented land in 1637 at Buckland, Charles City Co, VA. In the 1626 list of patents sent to England, William Perry is credited with 100 acres in the Corporation of Henrico. His patent for the plantation known as "Buckland" on the north side of the James River is of record, 19 Sep 1633 and is referred to in a repatent to his son, 1637.2 
Land patented10 May 1642He patented land on 10 May 1642 at Buckland, Charles City Co, VA. Henry Perry, Gent., son & heir of Capt. William Perry, Esqr., late of Va, dec'd, renewed his patent for this tract and added 1500 acres by assignment from George Menefie of his right for transporting thirty persons, makeing a total of 3500 acres in the "Buckland" tract. Being a neck of land between the old mans Cr. & Herring Cr. rising into the woods as far as said Creeks ebb and flow, and also 227 acres of Sunken Marsh and Swampe.1,5 
Will - Step-father*31 December 1645Henry was named in his step-father's will on 31 December 1645 at Charles City Co, VA. In his will George Menefie directed that "the ship Desire, now lying before "Buckland" be dispatched for England," and bequeathed to "my daughter Elizabeth Menefie all my lands at Westover, at James City and at York River." The will further directed that Menefie's house at "Buckland" be a "joint stock between my daughter Elizabeth and my son-in-law [stepson] Henry Perry," named his wife Mary Extrx and guardian to his daughter, and requested that he be buried at Westover.6 
Burgess*between 1652 and 1655Henry served in the Virginia House of Burgesses between 1652 and 1655 at Charles City Co, VA. He was a member of the House of Burgesses 1652 and 1654-55 and a member of the Council, 1655-61.1 
Marriage*circa 1655He married Elizabeth (2) Menefie, daughter of George (1) Menefie Esq. and Elizabeth (8) Clements (Clements?), circa 1655 at Charles City Co, VA. Although she was shown as unmarried in her father George Menefie's will of 31 Dec 1645, the William Byrd Title Book, V XLVII, pp. 287094 shows that she married Henry Perry.6,7

Biography*1620Elizabeth, the wife of Dr. John Pott, came to Virginia on the George in 1620 and on February 16, 1624, lived in urban Jamestown in a household her husband headed. On January 24, 1625, the Pott household included John, Elizabeth, and four servants. Mrs. Elizabeth Pott testified before the General Court in May 1625 and October 1627. On one occasion she said that she had given a hog to her servants to dine on, and on another, she said that she allowed Allen Kineston to hire her servant, Stephen Tailor, and that Kineston returned him for medical treatment after he became lame. On December 24, 1627, Mrs. Pott said that she had provided timber and boards to boat-builder William Bennett so that he could construct a vessel for her husband. The Potts apparently were friends of Jamestown merchant Thomas Warnett, who named them in his will. Around 1630, when Dr. John Pott was accused of stealing cattle, Elizabeth went to England to assert his innocence. On July 15, 1631, she was among the Virginia planters asking for relief from the customs duties imposed on imported tobacco.3

This petition asked relief from "paying any Custome, or Impost upon their tobacco crop until the said Plantation (Virginia) by peace become somewhat settled" and also recited the disaster in the colony caused by the recent massacre.

Biography1623/24William Perry, designated as "ancient planter," came to Virginia, 1611, but as he returned to England following the massacre of 11 March 1621/22 on business for the colony, he is not listed in the census of 1623/24 or in the muster of 1624/25. "Mrs. Perry" and "infans Perry," however, along with Francis Chapman, were at James City, 1623/24. Perry was one of the five planters who were bearers of a petition to the Company from Gov Wyatt which was dated at James City, 2 Feb 1623/24, and considered by the Council for Virginia, 21 April 1624. This petition asked relief from "paying any Custome, or Impost upon their tobacco crop until the said Plantation (Virginia) by peace become somewhat settled" and also recited the disaster in the colony caused by the recent massacre. (NOTE: Dorman also states that "infans" usually means son.)2

Immigrated*before 1642He immigrated before 1642 to Virginia..2 
Burgess*1642William served in the Virginia House of Burgesses in 1642 at Warwick Co, Virginia. William Whitby arrived in Virginia sometime prior to 1642, when he took office as Burgess, representing Warwick County. He was returned to the assembly in 1644 and served from 1652 to 1655. During the 1640s he also was a Warwick County Justice. He owned some land near the mouth of Waters Creek. During the 1640s he invested in some property at the head of Tindall's Creek, acreage near Gloucester Point that and he and George Ludlow had bought from Argoll Yeardley. In May 1646 Whitby confirmed the sale of the Gloucester property to Richard Lee. In July 1653, while Whitby was representing Warwick County in the assembly, he replaced Walter Chiles I as speaker. As time when on, patented literally thousands of acres of land in Warwick County, on the Middle Peninsula and in the Northern Neck. In 1653 he witnessed a document acknowledging that Sir William Berkeley and his wife, Lady Frances, had received 26 oxen from Colonel Francis Yeardley of Lower Norfolk County. A March 30, 1655, land transaction reveals that William Whitby I had rented a row house in urban Jamestown, part of a three-bay brick structure that Sir William Berkeley had built in the capital city around 1645. Although it is uncertain when Whitby began leasing the property and when he ceased, it probably was during the Commonwealth government was in power and he was serving in the assembly. Whitby died sometime prior to April 1670, leaving a widow, Katherine, and a teenage son, William II. On May 26, 1671, Katherine Whitby was sued by Theophilus Hone of Jamestown.2

Headright*15 February 1653She was named as a headright on 15 February 1653 at tract A7, Warwick or Quinby Farm, Accomack Co, VA. It was on this date that Capt. Francis Pott was granted 2,000 acres at Matchipungo Cr., bounded on the Eastern part by the Seaboard side & c., for transportating of 40 persons: Fra. Pott, Hattill Pott, Hen. Pott, Jno.

NOTE: 1,000 acres the one moiety of this above mentioned patent relinquished as under his hand in the patent may appear and rights thereof transferred to another patent bearing the date 14 Apr. 1657. Witt: Griff. Standen.2,3 
Will - Brother's*5 August 1658Bridget was named in her brother's will on 5 August 1658 at Northampton Co, VA. In his will Francis Pott, wife Susanna, named his three sisters Mary, Catherine and Bridget and gave them £10 each, and if any of them should be dead then to the survivors. (NOTE: Whitelaw states he "has a feeling" and "has a theory" that Mary married Edmund Scarburgh and Katherine married Randall Revell, which might account for the later intimate relations between the two men. To account for these close relations, some have thought that Revell had married a sister of Scarburth, but no proof was found that Katharine was a Scarburgh. At the time of his marriage, Scarburgh was living on N3 which was adjacent to the N5 land of Francis Pott, so perhaps the marriage was due to proqinquity and practical considerations, which would explain the differences in ages of the the two. When Scarburgh moved to Accomack, he sold his Northampton land to Pott. Whitelaw also stated that Francis Pott's sister Bridget is known to have been married to Dr. John Severne (N70) and to Captain Stephen Charlton (N75). This Bridget was his neice and the sister to his nephew John Pott, named in his will.)1,4
