Here is a little bit of information I have, some of which you mentioned in your post. Don't know it this really helps but here it is:

1. a. Maj. John Stith (c. 1625, Kirkham Parish, Lancashire, England – 1692) m. Dec. 1656, 
           Charles City Co., Henrico, VA to Jane Drury (1624, England – 1686, VA).  Maj. John
           Stith was in the House of Burgesses.  His father was Robert Stith (c. 1606 - ) and
           mother Mary Townsend (c. 1610 - ). John Stith was in America by 1656 and at that
           time had received a 500 -acre grant to him and to Samuel Earle; the land was in
           Charles City County, VA on  the James River upstream from Jamestown. There were
            land grants of 550 acres on July 29, 1664, 636 acres on May 11, 1675 and many other
            tracts in the vicinity of the James River. John was attorney, a magistrate, and he was
            a captain in the Militia in 1676, later by 1680, a major. John Stith was a member of the
            House of Burgesses 1685-6. At one time he was accused of using his powers to the      
            detriment of the citizens and for a period he was forbidden to hold any public office; this
restriction was later rescinded, as in 169 he was sheriff and in 1697 he was taking grievances
with the people of Charles City County.
            1. b. Agnes Stith (c. 1659, Charles City, VA - c. 1 Jan., 1721, Charles City, VA, buried
                    in Jones Hole Swamp, Surry Co., VA) m. c. 1675 to Thomas Wynne (1657, Charles
                    City, VA - 1718, Surry, VA)
            2. b. John Stith (c. 1658 – c. 1724, Charles City Co., VA) m. 1685, Mary Isham Randolph.
                     (Nov., 1663 - ).  She was the daughter of William and Mary Isham Randolph
                     (William and Mary Isham Randolph were the great-grandparents of Thomas
                     Jefferson; Mary Randolph Stith's brother, Isham, was Jefferson's grandfather).
                     John was High Sheriff of Charles City Co., VA. John was a member of House
                     of Burgesses 1692-3.  Mary became a matron at William and Mary after John
                     died.   John and Mary had a son William Stith who was Chaplin for the
                     House of Burgesses; Rector of Henrico Co., VA; President of William and
                     Mary College.     
             3. b  Drury Stith (c. 1670, Charles City, VA – 1741) m. Susannah Bathurst. 
                      Member of House of Burgesses. Was sheriff of the county.  He held the
                      rank of  Lt. Colonel.
             4. b. Jane Stith m. in Henrico, VA to Capt. Daniel Luellin. Sr. (1641, Henrico, VA -
