Re: Yarrington in Middlesex County, VA

Greg,

There is line of Yarringtons in Middlesex County Virginia dating back to at least the early 1800's. There was a family plantation called Rosebury near the town of Warner, VA. A portion of that land is still owned by Yarringtons. Some of the family also lived in the Tappahannock and Richmond areas.

There were three boys who went to fight in the Civil War. Only one survived, my great-great-grandfather Richard Henry Tyler Yarrington. Here is a web site reference to "Company G, Twenty-Sixth Virginia Regiment" from 1865: http://www.iocc.com/~swright/26thvag.html

You might be interested in knowing the first Yarrington to the new world arrived on the 2nd supply boat to the Jamestown colonies in 1609 (listed as "Paul Yarington, gentleman" in the reference I found in England.) I understand he is buried in the Jamestown colonies graveyard.

My uncle has been doing a great deal of research -- I can contact him for some details. Let me know that you received this information.

Robert B. Yarrington
