Andrew, WD Floyd states that he has a copy of an estate record in VA that was done by a Thomas (Y)Earwood in 1713. A Thomas Yarwood is recorded in Tottens "Persons of Quality..." A Thomas Yarwood came to the Carolinas on the "Baroque Discovery" from Barbados in 1679. from the book Persons of Quality by Totten. Since this Thomas Yarwood did not stay in SC, perhaps he is the one who was in VA in 1713. I am a descendant of the Sweetwater Valley Yearwood's and I believe that our line originated fron this Thomas Y(e)arwood from Barbados. Margaret Yearwood Hutchinson
