"William Berry as the son of our original Va Berry emigrant, Henry Berry, who arrived as a headright in a land patent issued to Epharaditus Lawson, dated May 22, 1650. Thus, Henry arrived, probably from England, and after paying Lawson the land allotted him from the Colony of Virginia to pay for his passage, started out his life a free man. By 1656 he received a land patent for 140 acres, and from then on appears often in the records of old Rappahannock County. He lived ont he south side of the Rappahannock River, in the county of what is now Esex, upon the Occupacia Creek. His wife's name was Ann, perhaps Saunders, but that is unsure, These 2 had the following children;

Henry Berry, immigrant of 1650, to Virginia and would like to exchange data with anyone who is of this family. Henry had 4 sons, Richard, Henry, John and William. He died 1677 in Old Rappanhonock County, Va. the sons and grandsons were in Richmond, King George, Stafford and Essex counties.

Henry Jr. who died in Richmond County, in 1696 William , of whom I have written John Richard Henry Sr. died in 1677, and his wife was alive at the time of his death, for she receives her "wives third" of his estate, in his will:
