I'm sure you know that documentation is 'the name of the game' in genealogy, and I, and others have worked for years in Va, on the Doughty and allied families....and no one has ever found siblings for Margaret Doughty, child of Enoch...so, if you can, would you please ask these people what their documentation is for these siblings. (the url you included doesn't seem to work for me)
As Wm and Margaret are my manytimes great grandparents, through their son Joseph, I have a great deal of information on them...and I'm afraid the names of their children are useless in proving some sort of relationship to others but her father, Enoch.
William and Margaret settled on the north side of the Rappahannock River in what was then Richmond County, and was a large land owner, owning over 4000 acres in the area. I have notebooks filled with hard copies of deeds, apprentice papers, marriage records, etc....
Wm and Margaret had 4 children;
2. Enoch, younger of the 2 son's of William and Margaret, was named for his maternal grandfather, Enoch Doughty. He married on December 12, 1726, Ducabella Bunbury, and the marriage is on the St. Paul's Parish records. Enoch inherited from his father the plantation in Hanover Parish, King George county, and he lived there till his death in October of 1763.
3. Margaret, eldest of the 2 daughters of William and Margaret, married Christopher Rogers who died testate in King George County in 1795.
4. Elizabeth married Robert Strother of King George County, who died, testate, in 1735 . She married a second time, a William Wheeler of Westmoreland county, who died, testate, in 1762.
This is the section on my webpage, on the Doughtys...there is also one for the Berry family. Everything is documented with primary records.
When someone of Enoch's time said 'leave this country', it meant, in reality, leave the area where I live... remember, there was no country here, in his time....Va was simply part of England, and not a separate country, nor even envisioned to EVER be a separate country....it is theorized that he may have lingered and died from a wound he might have gotten in Bacon's Rebellion, and would surely have wanted his family to leave Va....but this is only an umproven theory. As Enoch had never been in England, I can't imagine that he would even have considered sending a child or children to complete strangers, far across the sea....he corresponded with his brothers and sister till his death, and any of them would have been the logical caretaker of his children, rather
