About Alice Alves

2 (Major) William Harris 1629 - 1677/78 b: Abt. 1629 in Henrico County, VA d: February 01, 1678 in Henrico County, VA. 2nd Wife of William Harris: Alice (unknown) ?- 1696 (no proof that she was a Stewart? 1648-1697) b: in VA d: Aft. 1696 in New Kent County, VA m: Abt. 1670 in Henrico County, VA  

Maj. William Harris married first Lucy, by whom he had a son Thomas Harris [7042.2.1] and reportedly a daughter about whom we have no information.

William married a second time to Alice. William and Alice were the parents of sons, William and Edward Harris and maybe a third son. Their daughter was Love who Thomas Harris identified as his sister-in-law [half-sister] in his will


George Alvis (or Alves) originally came to America sometime before 1682 (George married before 1682, Alice (—) Harris, wid. of Maj. William. Henrico Orphans’ Court, 1 Feb 1682), but returned to Great Britain ca 1710 (the St. Paul’s Parish Vestry Book shows clearly that he was in Great Britain in 1711). He came back to America in 1712: Passenger and Immigration Lists Index, Vol. 1, Gale Research: ALVIS, George, n.a. Boston, Mass., 1712. Boyer, Ship Passenger Lists, National and New England, p. 178 with three servants. George’s wife Alice was living in 1700, but may have died before George’s trip to Great Britain. She does not appear on his entry at Boston Harbor in 1712, although three servants were listed. He probably remarried about 1713 or later, and died in 1734 leaving one minor son, under 16, named David. If David was born in, say, 1714, his father would have been about 60 or 70.

After the death of Major William Harris, his widow Alice remarried to George Alves. It seems certain that Alice was mother of William Harris, Jr. and Edward Harris for in his will, Major William Harris stated that: "MY YOUNGEST SONS (WILLIAM & EDWARD) TO LIVE WITH THEIR MOTHER TILL THE AGE OF SIXTEEN." The following abstracts further show that William Harris, Jr. was son of Alice, that the widow Alice remarried to George Alves, and that Edward Harris was the youngest son of Maj. William and Alice Harris:
