Re: Earwood/Yearwood Confusion

Since it matters very little whether the name Earwood or Yearwood was the original surname it seems that everyone is in agreement that they are all of the same family. The Yearwoods, Earwoods or the Erwoods of today are not going to upset their lives by changing their names. I am just an "in-law" to the family but really enjoy the chase of trying to figure this out.
Here is a bit that seems to indicate to myself that this Thomas Earwood/Yearwood may have been one of the first in the country.
I discovered this bit of info in a book named "Colonial Wills of Henrico Co., VA Part One 1677-1737" written by Benjamin B. Weisiger, III. This was on page 90 of the book. p213 Inventory of John Burgany by Edward Curd, Henry Brazeal, and Thomas Earwood. Recorded 6 April 1713 by Edward Floyd and Michal, his wife. I was looking for Floyd info when I discovered this.
The above person wasn't listed in the book index. Does anyone have any ideas on this person?
Reunion time is coming up pretty soon so we probably need to mention some dates. The NC Earwood/Yearwood/Erwood Reunion is September 9, 2001 at Bracketts Cedar Park between Polkville and Casar, Cleveland Co., NC. All are invited. Bring food if possible. Lunch about 1 o'clock PM. Bill
