John Boxe, the “ancient planter”. We do not know when or where he was born but John Boxe (Box) came to Virginia on the Truelove in 1622 and on January 21, 1625, was recorded as a 23-year-old household head. Records indicate his death occurred before June 1, 1636. On that date his wife, Mary Boxe, was claiming 300 acres in Henrico County, Virginia, on Appamattuch River, adjoining the land of Elizabeth Ward , and extending to "Pearse his stile" Creek that was due her: 100 acres in the right of her late husband, John Boxe, an ancient planter; and 200 also in his right, due him for transportation of the said Mary and three servants: Thos. Neale, Edward Holland, William. By July 12, 1637, Mary Boxe, his wife, was deceased and her daughter, Mary Box, was claiming the estate of John Boxe. This indicates this John Boxe had no male heirs.
