About Henry Tyler

Henry was NOT the son of Laurence and Dorothy Joan Tyler. DNA has proven they were not connected by blood. http://boards.ancestry.com/surnames.tyler/1856/mb.ashx

Henry settled in Charles City, VA in 1652. In Vol. III, of the Virginia Land Register is the record of a Patent in Henry Tyler's name dated Jan 7, 1652, locating 254 acres in Middle Plantation, VA, due to him by and for transporting to this colony six persons. This land is the land upon the Palace of the Royal Govenor was built. Henry is a descendant of Wat Tyler, according to G.C. Greer in his "Early Virginia Immigrants". Furthermore, John Tyler the 10th president of the US refers to being related to Wat Tyler, the blacksmith and English Rebel, in a speech. John Tyler, the president, is a descendant of Henry.

Henry Tyler lived in the outskirts of what is now the city of Williamsburg, Virginia.

At June Court 1672, Ann Tyler his relic, (Henry), entered a record of Deed of Gift disposing of her separate estate among her three sons, Henry, John and Daniel. There were no heirs by his first wife Mary. Two children of Henry and Anne went on to have many descendants: His oldest son, Henry Tyler stayed in VA and his line is the 10th President John Tyler's line. John Tyler the second son of Henry and Anne moved to Hanover, VA and then his line of descendants migrated to North Carolina and later to South Carolina. This line of John Tyler's can be considered "The Southern Tylers". The Tylers migrated heavily after the Revolutionary War, to Texas, Missouri, Mississippi and Louisiana.

In 1-7-1652 Henry was granted 254 Acres of land for importing himself and wife Mary and 4 other persons to Middle Plantation, VA. He was the original grantee of land upon which the Governer's palace was erected, where it now stands. He was also a sheriff, coroner and Justice of the Peace in 1658. He was a churchman of Bruton parish, an architect, aristocrat, wealthy and educated man. See the Letters and Times of Tylers, Vol. 36-37.
