In Reply to: Joan South LAMBERT dau. of George (son of Robert) by April Kyle BLADH of 1529

I'm looking for this SOUTH family.

The is will is that of Col. Geo. Thomson's, probated in 1690, England.


A-a daughter who married George South of Westmoreland Co., VA. On 4 March 1695, with the consent of his daughter Tamer, George South indentured her into the service of James and Marthy Westcomb to serve for three years. South bought 60 acres on 27 February 1671/72 from Thomas Dias and sold the land to Peter Duncan in 1685.
(Westmoreland Wills-abstracts: SOUTH, Geo., 29 Feb. 1719; 13 Sept. 1720. Land to son George begot by me on the body of Ann my wife late wife of Issac Shepherd; son John begot by me on the body of Ann my wife 1/2 my land; wife; sons George & John & dau. Hannah; my sons' godfather Thomas Lambert 1 bed & furniture; debt from Jane Dunn now wife of Benjamin Lampkin to my wife Ann; John & Francis Awbury exrs.) (First Families of America, Volume VII, Lineage Records, Page 521 - George South, from Eng.; settled on the banks of the Antietam at Funkstown, Md., 1650)
Note: Geo. South was listed as a "tithable" in Northhampton Co. in Aug. 1666. In August 1672 South gave to Richard Browne and his wife and children a heifer, a bull calf and a young sow.
On 6 Sept 1705, the lands of George South, Senr., were divided equally between George and John South. The land adjoined that of Mr. Thomas Yowell (Gray; O.R. Westmoreland Co.).
Issue of George South:
1-Elizabeth (not mentioned in the above will) South? married Richard Browne
1. Hannah South (is mentioned in the above will)
2-George South
3-John South
4. Richard South (not mentioned in the above will)

I've also found a Richard South in Boston in 1650.
