- It is not positive that this Captain Richard Bayly Jr. is the same as the Richard Bayly II referred to in Whitelaw, who was a descendant of Richard Bayly I (est. 1600-1661). There are many references to the name Richard Bayly in Whitelaw. A quick search of Whitelaw indicates that Richard Bayly I (1600-1661) came to Virginia via the Barbadoes in 1640 and married Elizabeth, widow of Henry Weede who died in 1644. They moved from the Henry Weede property (N88) to a part of A18 on the south side of Craddock Creek next to A17, which was Colonel Edmund Scarburgh's property. The was the area were Colonel Edmund's son, Edmund Jr., and Edmund Jr.'s daughter Ursula resided. Therefore, it would seem most likely that the Richard Bayly Jr. that Ursula married would have been Richard Bayly II. Richard Bayly II (est. 1645-1728) was married in 1665 to Mary Jones, sister of a Henry Jones and daughter of Mary Harper. He later married Elizabeth, who survived him. He had at least two sons. One was Richard Bayly III, wife Rosana, who had three sons: Edmund Bayly (? -1796), Richard (?-1769) wife Betty, and Henry (?-?). Richard Bayly II's other son was Edmund, to whom he gave 800 acres of land in 1694. The explanation could be that Richard Bayly II married Ursula Scarburgh after Mary Jones and before his last wife Elizabeth. Edmund could have been the son of Ursula and Richard, as it was a Scarburgh family name. (Whitelaw pg 460, 635-9, 642, 846, 892, 898, 1051)
