Bouldin III and his wife Mary were the first Bouldin to touch American soil.

They sailed for the new land on the sailing vessel "Swan" and arrived in

Virginia in 1610. He was thirty years of age. He landed some where near, or

in, the Jamestown Colony. The next we hear from him, he has obtained a land

grant some miles down the James River, from Jamestown. It is worthy to note

that the county between Jamestown and Elizabeth City, County, where he finally

settled, was named Warwick as he was from Warwick, England. Within ten years

after his arrival, the coast of the James River in this section was well

occupied by farmers. Just fourteen years after he landed, he received a land

grant from the Virginia Council. It was located one and one-half miles up the

Southhampton River in Elizabeth City County, Virginia. This grant was

registered January 20, 1624, in Patent Bok No. 1, Part 1, page 43, in General

Land Office in the Capitol, Richmond, Virginia. "Virginia Land Office (Patents

and Grants) to Toby Smith, 650 acres in Warwick County, Virginia, called

Hunrperstow, upon the head of Back River, called Smith's Ford, adjacent Thomas

Faulkner and Thomas Boulding. Granted to said Toby Smith, 14 Feb 1640." The

first settlers had come in 1607 and had built and called their settlement

Jamestown. By spring of 1610 their number had shrunk to 40 men. No women at

that time. They were prepared to return to England when met by these second

three shiploads and persuaded to turn back.
