Candace Ferguson, My evidence re the date of arrival of John of Old Rappahannock/Essex Co. is conjecture based on my study of his
activities. 1)In a couple of his documents he used the terms, "our Sovereign Lord the King", and "our Sovereign Lady the Queen".
These are terms not likely to by used by a
criminal from a Scottish prison. My third g-grandfather Ferguson was a Colonel in the British army during the Revolution. The Col. was a 2nd g-grandson of John & Ann Stubbleson. My Ferguson's were Church of England, not Presbyterians. We think that John F. of Essex immigrated to Virginia from England, not Scotland.
