About Timothy Redding, Jr.

Timothy and William Redding, brothers, 1728: The line of a Timothy Redding, born about 1690 and died in Fauquier County, Virginia, in 1760, has been well documented in Billie Redding Lewis' book on the Redding family and in Ancestry and Descendants of the Nassau-Siegen Immigrants to Virginia: 1714-1750 by B. C. Holtzclaw. Timothy Redding is said to have been of Welsh extraction (probably the son of Timothy, Senior, who appears in Charles City County and Prince George County records from 1693 to 1729), but he married a woman, Mary Spillman, whose family was of the German Nassau-Siegen emigration. Timothy owned land in Fauquier County, Virginia in 1728 and in Michaelmass, Prince William County, Virginia, in 1751.
