On June 10, 1670, Lightfoot received the King's grant as auditor-general of Virginia, in place of Thomas Stegge, then lately deceased. On Dec. 17, 1671, his majesty, having learned that Gov. Berkeley had appointed Digges to the place prior to his own letters patent to Lightfoot, and that Digges was "a person every way fit for said office," directed Berkeley to suspend Lightfoot and substitute Digges. Moryson in a letter to Lord Arlington said that Berkeley's commission to Digges "bore date long before Captain Lightfoot did so much as sue for his," and objects to Lightfoot on the grounds that at the time when he received his commission he was not a member of the council or a resident of Virginia, "so that if he hath the place he must be forced to execute it by deputy, which is contrary to law," and that he was reported to have "many great debts upon him, one no less than a statute of - 700." In 1681 reference is made to Lightfoot as having married Anne, daughter of Thomas Goodrich, lieutenant-general in Bacon's rebellion, and in 1692 we are told that John Lightfoot, "lately come into the country," was a councillor. It is probable that he had lately returned from a visit to England. On Sept. 5, 1695, the lords justices, on recommendation of the committee of trades and plantations, directed that John Lightfoot be added to the Virginia council. In 1699 he was collector for the country between James and York rivers, and in 1701 voted with other councillors for the recall of Nicholson. He is also mentioned as having been commander-in-chief of King and Queen County. He died May 28, 1707, leaving issue.

Oral History: Per June Hines - They say that he came from a very wealthy and prominent family. and he disappears after she gets pregnate with second child. "My Grand mother Sarah Ann Adair told her children that she ( Ga Ho Ga) was a very beautiful woman. He came to Va in the 17th Century " Capt/Burgess John Lightfoot has been seen in records to be married to Maryl/Mary C. NORVELL and Mary MUMFORD but we need said records.

Written History:

1..Burgess & Capt of his own fleets to Barbados, Burgess in the courts of Pamaunky Lands, Neighbor of Pamunky Neck Neighbors to the half Pamaunky Howell family and sold his Pamaunky Neck granted lands on record, and removed to Cherokee Nation; continued his trade to Barbados and thought to have died there or in Qualla Boundary (they do not prefer the term reservation). We know he was a Justice of Peace and Burgess due to his sitting in a hearing on Samuel Bunch.

2. Capt/Burgess John Lightfoot of Gloucester County, Virginia married Mary Elizabeth "Molly" Clack, daughter of James Clack and Mary Sterling in 1744, in Ware Parish. He was the s/o Col. Phillip Lightfoot and Mary Armstead.

3. "Clack Family" Published October 1, 1910. "Clack Family" is an article from The William and Mary Quarterly, Volume 19. page 60 of The Virginia Magazine of History and Biography, Volume 8. Will dated April 20, 1751.

4. James Adair, the major writer of all things Eastern Native was married into this family group, if you read his multitude of writings, an historian from 150 years ago, it mentions Deer Clan, his wife's clan; but, would have been an assigned clan or adopted clan from the Vann family as the cultural parents. Geni has in the Source tab the Maryland birth by the only document that shows where Gahoga Clan Mother came from, was from MD. 2 of Capt Lightfoot's daughters were enrolled on the Old Settler's Roll of the 1819 Qualla Boundary. The other daughters were not enrolled because of not being there. At that time, if your dad is the Capt of a Caribbean fleet and had been a Justice of the Peace amongst the Pamauky Reservation Land, as he was and had multi estates, including in Qualla Boundary are, the clan has never been assigned to him in any document; just his dealings in human trafficking.
