In Reply to: Pasco Curle of Elizabeth City, Virginia -- Emigrant Ancestor by JoAnn Sherwood of 949

I also descend from this family & have collected a lot of info over the years; too much to put into 1 message, but here are a few items of interest. mrs Sarah, wife of Pasco Curle is identified in the 3rd volume of Cavaliers & Pioneers from a land record as the dtr of John Baker.
Their dtr Mary who md 1) Henry Jenkins, also md 2) Anthony Tucker. They had another dtr named Sarah who md her cuz Joshua Curle; that marriage is recorded in Elizabeth City Co, VA on 2 Mar 1702, and she is named as a dtr in her widowed mo's will. Regarding their bro Nicholas Curle, he had besides the 2 sons you gave, also 2 dtrs; one of them Mary md 1) Alexander Hamilton and 2) John Nash; while her sister Jane md George Walker. His son Wilson who md Priscilla Meade also named his 2 daughters Mary and Jane and through circumstantial evidence it appears that they also md after their fa's will; Mary to 1) Robert Wallace (he is one of the wits to David Curles 1760 Halifax Co, NC land grant along w/Wm Selden (also an Elizabeth City Co, VA man); she md 2) Wm Armistead. Her sister Jane was evidently the 1st wife of Moss Wallace Armistead (bro of his brother in law, Wm Armistead) who served at one point as the administrator of Wm Roscoe Curle. The latter couple (Moss & Jane) had 4 children, including my ancestor Ann Armistead who md 1)Simon Hollier Jr, wp 1803, & 2)Augustine Moore. William Roscoe Curle's 1st wife Euphan Wallace was the mother of Wilson who md Lockey Langhorne, but Wilson's sister Elizabeth Kello Curle was by a 2nd wife, Mrs Mary (widow of Walter) Lyons, their marriage recorded in Sep 1776 Norfolk by the Virginia Gazette. in a Sep 1784 Elizabeth City County Order Book notation, Elizabeth Kello Curle's gdn is named as her mother, Mary Curle. Elizabeth's marriage to Philip Nicholson Brown is recorded in Jun 1800 Norfolk.
I have traced back all these Curle families for as long as they lived in the Virginia Tidewater area, with more success on some lines than others, but will happily share whatever details I have for whichever of the families you are interested in.
