notes

From The Peyton Book - Blogspot PEYTONS Along the Aquia Genealogy ~~ SECOND EDITION. By Edna Barney.

On page 71, of my genealogy book, PEYTONs Along the Aquia, the three sons, VALENTINE PEYTON, WILLIAM PEYTON and CRAVEN PEYTON, recorded as belonging to CRAVEN PEYTON and ANN WEST, I now believe to be sons of CRAVEN and his first wife, ANN HARRISON.

CRAVEN PEYTON first appears on page 499, of Reverend Hayden's "PEYTON, of England and Virginia" where he is described as the first in the Virginia Line of PEYTON to be named for CRAVEN, the son of Sir ROBERT PEYTON, #20 on page 484. Reverend Hayden gives CRAVEN's wife as "ANN." Additional research implies that CRAVEN married ANN HARRISON first, then ANN WEST. Furthermore, I find no proof that the mother of ANN WEST was from the HARRISON family.

Robert Peyton (ca. 1725 - ), son of Capt.Valentine and Frances (Linton) Peyton married Ann, maiden name unknown. Some Robert Peyton appears to have married an Ann Guffey, but there is insufficient evidence to prove that it is the Robert, son of Captain Valentine. Also, Craven Peyton (ca. 1731-1780), son of Captain Valentine and Frances (Linton) Peyton, married Anne West, not Anne Harrison. This is confirmed through the will of William West, Anne's father.
