Birth*circa 1643Ann was born circa 1643 at England.1 
Land bought*1669She bought land in 1669 at tract A180, Horntown, Accomack Co, VA. Col. Edmund Scarburgh and his wife Mary sold 3,000 of this tract to Mrs. Ann Toft for 9,101 pounds of Mevis Sugar in Cask and 708 pounds of Indigo. After the marriage of Mrs. Toft to Daniel Jenifer, a joint patent was issued to them in 1672 for 5,000 acres to include the above 3,000 acres and 2,000 acres of new land; in later transactions this new part usually was called swamp land. When Mrs. Toft married Daniel Jenifer she gave birth to a son Daniel of St. Thomas Jenifer, who under the old law of primogeniture would inherit all of her former lands, together with the new ones which were then in the joint names of Daniel and Ann Jenifer. Perhaps it my be assumed that Ann became concerned now for the future of her daughters and so prevailed upon her husband to make a definite provision for them. At any rate, on 15 July 1672 Daniel and his wife Ann "lately called Ann Toft" recorded a document to the effect that 5,000 acres of Gingoteague were to be set aside for them; Daniel was to retain title. Until the said children shall arrive at their aforesaid several and respective ages of 17 years . . . Furthermore in case the said Arcadia, Attalanta and Annabella or any of them shall marry before the aforesaid age of 17 years is arrived without the consent and good liking and approbacon of the said Daniell and Anne their Mother, then she or they so offending shall have no share nor interest in any of the premises before given. The indenture also set aside for each daughter specific cattle, silver, bed, linen, pots, pewter, grain, etc. and a slave apiece.2

Land gave*9 September 1686She deeded land as a gift on 9 September 1686 at tract A180, Horntown, Accomack Co, VA. The share of each daughter as stated in 1672 was not deeded to her as she became 17 or married, but on 9 Sep 1686, Daniel and Anne Jenifer executed a long deed of give to each of the daughters and their respective husbands, Arcadia and Thomas Welburne, Attalanta and John Osborne of Somerset, and Annabella and Francis Lee of London, formerly giving each couple 1,666 acres along with the personalty promised. About 5 months later, Anne signed her las deed of land with her husband, so she must have died shortly thereafter, and perhaps she had a premonition of the end and saw to it there the deeds were properly recorded before her death.2

Biography*The names in the Ayres-Eyres family in Colonial Virginia were submitted to the genealogist, Mr. Bower Marsh of London, by Henrietta Ayres Dawson, asking if, in his opinion, they were the same family as that of Wiltshire in the Visitation of London. He promptly replied that "they were the same people, no such accident could ever have happened that two families would follow the same given names," and by his definite opinion if was so formed. He provided the wills of Henry Ayres dated 20 Jan 1656, pewterer of London; the will of Henry Ayres dated 13 Oct 1645 of Ware, County Hertford; and the will of Henry Ayres dated 19 Jul 1661 of London. This surname was written in the early public records of the Colony of Virginia the same as in records in England, as Ayres, Aires, Airs, Ayre, Ayers, Eyre, Eyers, Eires and Eyres. Many Ayres (Eyres), also Trueloves, came to Virginia, and were listed in the Virginia Council as early as 1621. Some returned to England, as found in "Abstract of the Proceedings of the Virginia Company of London 1619-1624," by Conway Robinson, edited by R.A. Brock, Volume I.

Anecdote*1651 John Ayres, Mr. William Ayres, Mr. Edmond Ayres, Richard Ayres and Mr. Francis Ayres came from England between 1651 and 1657 to that part of Virginia along or between the Rappahannock and Potomac Rivers. The exact dates when each first set foot upon Virginia soil are not known, but the dates on which the headrights of these adventurers from England were converted by others, to whom those rights had been sold between 1651 and 16 Jul 1657, into grants of land at times of varying lengths between those years are known. Mr. Edmond Ayres and Richard Ayres both appear as having arrived at about the same time, and Mr. Francis Ayres first appears of record in the same region in the same year. The headrights of these three gentlemen were each converted into land on the same day, those of Edmond and Richard being so converted by the same purchaser, while that of Francis was acquired by another buyer, which same buyer converted into land the headright on a John Ayres on the same day that he received land for the headright of the same Francis. Thus the headrights of these four close kinsmen were all converted into land on the 15 Jul 1675. John Ayres was the first to be mentioned in the public records. He was the only one of the five who in March 1651/2 was found to be present ashore in Virginia when he was called on by county officers to take the oath of allegiance to the government of England.6 
Anecdote25 March 1652 John Ayres first appeared in America records on 25 Mar 1652 in Northampton County when he took the oath of allegiance to the then new government of their old home country and its colonies. Everyone of the age of 18 years or more was required to take the oath promising to be true and faithfull to the Commonwealth of England as it is now established without King or House of Lords. Among those signing in N'hamp County on 25 Mar 1652 (the first day of the year 1652) were Jno. Ayres, Nathan'll Littleton, Edm. Scarburgh, Tho. Johnson, Georgius Hacke and Stephen Charlton. Among those signing 5 days later were Jno. Custis, Jno. Johnson Jr., Jno. Johnson Sr., Rich Hill, Charles Scarburgh, James Atkinson, Wm. Gower, Wm. Jorden & Rich. Kellam.7 
Tithable list*6 February 1655John was on the list of tithables at Lancaster Co, VA, for on 6 February 1655. He was taxed for having 3 adult persons in his abode either ashore or on board his vessel. They were evidently himself, his newly-married wife and probably Henry Peters, who seems to have been in the employ of John Ayres for this same Henry Peters had previously arrieved in Virginia before 10 Mary 1652 and then was a headright for Capt. Richard Hill of Northampton & Westmoreland Counties..8 
Marriagecirca 1655He married Joan Gowers, daughter of (father of Joan & Wm) Gowers, circa 1655. According to Ayres, Dawson & Allied Families the Gowers records of Lancaster and Rappahannock Counties indicate the reason William Gowers bequeathed the principal part of his estate in 1668 to the children of John Ayres, the Master Mariner, was that John's first wife Joan, was a sister of William Gowers, and born in England..9 
Land patented*24 October 1655John patented land on 24 October 1655 at Rappahannock River. It was on this date that John Ayres was granted 250 acres on the North side of the Rappahannock River above the plantation of Mr. Wm. Smart for transportation of 5 persons: Barbaby Johnson, James Pearson, Thomas Hart and Elnor Hart. On 6 Oct 1658 James Brenett was granted 200 acres upon South side of the Rappahannock River begining upon a branch near land of William Clapham, which had been granted to John Ayres on 24 Oct 1655, assigned unto said Brennett & Peter Johnson & now renewed for transportation of 4 persons. According to a certificate of land granted to Jo: Eyers on 6 Aug 1655 in Lancaster County, the 4 persons were John Tayler, Elnor Gill, Joan Eyers and Hen: Peeters..10,8

Smith were granted 225 acres in the forset between the Rappahannock Patomeck Rivers, beging on a point between two branches of Nominy River. The said land being surveyed for John Ayres, by him assigned to said patentees & due for the transportation of 5 persons..14

On 20 Oct 1663 John and Joan Aier named Mr. Allex Fleming our true and lawfull attorney to acknowledge for and in our behalf all our right & title in a parcell of land sold to Henrick Lucas. This was the last transaction signed by Joan Ayres, who evidently died soon thereafter. This Alexander Fleming died a few years later and his widow, Joyce, married Capt. Lawrence Washington, who was buried in 1677 at Wakefield beside his elder brother Col. John Washington..15 
Land patented13 November 1662John patented land on 13 November 1662 at Rappahannock Co, VA.

Ayres on 13 Nov 1662 & by him sold to Henry Lucas of the same county & by him sold to said Johnson. (NOTE: John Ayres had established his quarters ashore on 1655 in Sittenbourne Parish, Rappahannock County, on the south side of the Rappahannock River and his land on the north side of the river was in the parish of North Farnham.)16,17

Hill's precinct as Jno Ayres Senr. with 3 (implying that his son John Ayres Junior was recognized as of legal age); in 1688 Capt. Hill's precinct list did not show a John Ayres, perhaps he and his son John were away at sea..19 
Land sold6 April 1664John sold land on 6 April 1664 at Rappahannock Co, VA. It was on this date that John Ayres made his first sale of land without his wife Joan providing her release of dower rights, as she was then dec'd. This land was granted to John Ayres on 24 Oct 1655 when Joan was his wife. So John alone conveyed the grant of 250 acres on the north side of the Rappahannock river to Capt. Alexander Fleming, who on 3 Mar 1664 had the land confirmed or patented direct to himself..20 
Marriage*after 6 April 1664He married Mary Hill, daughter of Capt. Richard Hill and Mary Drake, after 6 April 1664 at Westmoreland Co, VA. They were likely married at the home of the bride's parents at Wakefield, Washington Parish, Westmoreland Co, VA where Capt. Richard Hill and his wife Mary lived until Nov 1665 when Richard Hill and wife Mary agreed to sell to Robert Porter and Peter Gramer the 250 aces where we now live on Fishing Dreek (later Pope's Creek) between the land of Richard Griffin and Lawrence Abbington (the site where George Washington was born in 1731/2)..21,22,23 
Anecdote28 September 1664 On 28 Sep 1664 James Browne, of Rappahannock County, was granted 346 acres on the south side of the Rappahannock River, begining at lower side of land of Wm.

It was on this date that John Ayres was granted 378 acres on south side of Rappahannock River in the freshes, begining at S.W. corner of land belonging to Jno. Meder, running S.S.W. &c. to trees dividing this and land of Robt. Davies, thence N. 42 perches, W. 80 perches to a branch of Potobaco Creek, thence N.N.E. to land of Jno. Medar &c. for transportation of 8 persons into the colony..25 
Land sold11 July 1666John sold land on 11 July 1666 at Sittenbourne Parish, Rappahannock Co, VA. It was on this date that John Ayres sold out his home and 561 acres on the Rappahannock River. The distance from the head of Pope's Creek in Westmoreland County where his father-in-law Richard Hill lived southward to the Rappahannock River nearly opposite the Ayres' land, is between five and six miles. That is the narrow part of the peninsula and where the Rappahannock is narrower than a half-mile. John Ayres' headquarters was near Tappahannock in the present county of Essex. He had acquired 6 separate tracts of land in Rappahannock County comprising 1,318 acres altogether. Evidently sometime before leaving Rappahannock County John Ayres acquired some wharfage, storage for tobacco, etc. in Accomack County as he was assessed on having besides himself, 2 persons in this service in 1663 in Accomack County. Both Richard Hill and John Ayres removed to Accomack County, as one outcome of this marriage, and there they remained close together on adjoining estates throughout the remainder of their lives..26 
Heir - named as*31 July 1668John was named as an heir on 31 July 1668 at Accomack Co, VA. It was on this date that William Gowers named Francis, John & Patience Ayres, children of John Ayres, in his will..27

Ayres & Xpofer (Christopher) Thompson were granted 600 acres in N'hamp Co (now Acccomack Co) adjacent to Capt. Richard Hill's land in forker neck at head of Hunting Dreek for transporting 12 persons: John Eyres 8 times, Robert Davis, Edward Broadway, Richard Lewis and George Youngman. A certificate had been granted in the upper part of N'hamp Co on 16 Oct 1671 to John Eyres for 650 acres for transporting 13 persons: John Eyres himself 8 times; Robert Davis, Edw'd Broadway, Richard Lewis, George Youngman & Robert Youngman. Christopher Thompson and John Ayres became partners in maritime enterprises, John Ayres being the Master Mariner and Thompson the partner ashore. The friendship between the two lasted for 30 years and after the death of John Ayres, Thompson married John Ayres' widow..28 
Anecdote20 February 1677 According to the Journals of the House of Burgesses of Virginia, 1659/60-1693, p. 81, At a Grand Assembly began at Green Spring on 20 Feb 1676/7 the following orders of public charge were made and allowed ... to John Ayres - 700 lbs tobacco. This was evidently for his roll in transporting men and the necessities arising because of a temporary change in the seat of government back and forth between the mainland and the Eastern Shore. There was some delay in payment and on 16 May 1678 in Accomack Court "upon the petition of John Aires setting forth that he was in the countries service himself and boat over the Bay at Jamestown 30 days & having made oath to the same and also that hath rec'd no satisfaction certificate is accordingly granted him to the next assembly."29 
Anecdote1679 In 1679 John Ayres had sailed to the island of Barbados in the West Indies. Evidently Joseph Holt, an indentured servant on Barbados had completed his term of service and obtained a license to leave that island. An original manuscript in the Archives Division of the London Guildhall has this entry: "Barbardos-Tickets. A list of what tickets have been granted out of the secretary office of the island aforsaid for the departure off this island of the several persons hereafter mentioned, beginning in Jan 1678/9 & ending in December following, viz: 29 Oct 1679, Joseph Holt in the sloop Hopewell for Antegoa, John Ayres Commander." Antegoa, 480 miles north of Barbados, via the route inside of the Leeward Islands, was about 1/4 of John Ayres' journey back to Cape Charles, Virginia.30 
Anecdote16 December 1680 On 16 Dec 1680 in Accomack County Mr. Samuel Taylor came to court and voluntarily confest judgement to John Ayres for 312 lbs of good ffatt nett porke to be paid on demand according to an obligation under the said Taylor's hand bearing the date of 13 Oct 1680.31 
Will - Witnessed*25 March 1687He witnessed a will on 25 March 1687 at Accomack Co, VA. It was on this date that John Ayres, Thomas Rila, & John Cary witnesssed the will of Finla MackWilliam.32 
Anecdote2 July 1692 On 2 Jul 1692 in Accomack County, John Aires registered his cattle mark.33 
Will - Witnessed1 August 1696He witnessed a will on 1 August 1696 at Accomack Co, VA. It was on this date that John Ayres & Nicholas Hill witnessed the will of Thomas Riley Sr.34 
Death*after 14 January 1702John died after 14 January 1702 at Accomack Co, VA. It was on this date that John Ayres and his eldest son, John, Junior, put aboard a vessel, probably their sloop Hopewell, 11 or 12 head of cattle and sailed for Jones County in Pennsylvania (now Kent County, DE). As the destination could not be reached by way of Chesapeake Bay, the voyage must have been outward around Cape Charles, up the Atlantic coast, and into the Delaware Bay. Upon embarking John Ayres had two of his sons, who remained at home, and two independent witnesses sidned and filed for recordation in the Clerk's Office of Accomack a manifest of their cargo and their destiniation, doubtless as a precaution in view of the hazards of the sea in winter. It was recorded in Acc Co Deeds & Wills, 1692-1715, page 272: "Account of cattle for John Ayres which are to be transported from this county to Jones County, in Province of Pennsylvania, 4 Cows and calves and one cow with calf; 3 two year old heifers; 2 yearlings; all marked with one mark; crop on ye left ear two slitts, tow slitts under and overbit on ye right and underbit." Signed Francis Ayres, Edmun Ayres, William Willett & Wm. Chance. What happened on this voyage is unkown, other then neither John Ayres or his son John returned alive.
.2,21 
Burial*His body was interred at Ayres Monument, Greenbush, Acc Co, VA. A memorial stone was observed in the autumn of 1937 on the farm of Mr. Fletcher Scott, near Drummond's Mill, west of Greenbush, which read "In memory of John Ayres, Mariner, of Rappahannock County, Virginia, who settled in Accomack, was born 1666, died 1702." In turn Henrietta Ayres Sheppard erected a family memorial which is shown on Whitelaw's tract A87A, which shows him as John Eyres (Ayres), mariner of Rappahannock County, Virginia, who settled in Accomac before 1666 and died circa 1702..21,35
