Phillipp (many sp.) Chesley, who emigrated from Wellford in Glocestershire about 1650, settled in York County, Virginia. He patented a number of lands, held the rank of captain of militia for York Co, VA, and died in 1674, leaving his estate to two nephews, William and Philip Chesley. They were to be educated in London, and returned to Virginia. Apparently, this transpired, and the Virginia Chesley's presumably descend from these nephews of the immigrant. Indications are that he married Margaret Wild, the daughter of a business associate, Daniel Wild, and that Daniel, Henry, and John Wild may have been cousins as well.
Does anyone know how the nephews got here, by birth or immigration? and if by birth, who was their father, and when did he immigrate?
Does anyone know who these enphews married, where they settled, and who their descendants might be?
Any help, or thoughts, would be appreciated.
