Re: Grandfather of all USA Traylors: Edward

Some of the above data may be out of date. Current research indicates that “Grandfather” Edward Traylor was the first recorded Traylor name in America, and his name appears in a Deed for land from the governor of Virginia in 1682. Edward was “transported” with others who also were listed in the Deed. We have not found any record of him in England, as yet. The first recorded Traylor name in England was the birth of Nicholas in 1617, and we do not know his parents. Traylor ancestry is blank prior to 1617. Our name was not changed from Trouillart. We had no castles, and no family crest. Sorry, but someone had to be the peon.

Our Edward did marry a Martha, but she was not a Randolph.

In Old English, Traylor can mean:
A person with trailing robes.
