About Maj. William Armistead

And, many “white” Armisteads can trace their origin to William (1) Armistead, who received a land grant on Mobjack Bay in 1637, and who appears to have immigrated on a special London based ship, the "Tristram and Jane" near Easter, 1637, while many “black” Armisteads can trace their ancestors to Virginia, after 1776. (*0,*5)

The “Tristram and Jane” passenger list does not indicate that William Armistead was very important with only one servant, while others, a “Cornwallis”, a “Sir John Howe” and a “John Davis, Knight” ranked five to seven servants, each. The total number of passengers were listed at 43 with 70 servants, and included a “John Smith”, who was, perhaps, Capt. John Smith or his son. A “Cornwallis” could have been Capt. Cornwallis (of 1637) or any member in the Cornwallis Royal Line from Kent. (*5)

The ship, “Tristram and Jane”, that transported a William Armistead, does not appear again in History, except for the return trip to England carrying tobacco. The ship’s name could have been fictitious, for security reasons, since royal murders and kidnappings were a constant problem in barbaric Europe.

William (1) Armistead was granted 50 acres on Mobjack Bay (in 1637), acquired another 450 acre Plantation in York Co., and may have donated land for Williamsburg, where he mixed and chatted with common tradesmen, and which was named for him, or for Sir William Berkeley; or, since it was built in about 1677, for William III of ORANGE, who became King William II of England with Mary II in 1685 (See: Center Plantation, near Williamsburg.)
