  1. From the foregoing reports of Mr Burke it appears that Col John Page, progenitor of the Page Family in Virginia was the son of Francis Page of Bedfont, Middlesex County, England as stated on the tombstone at St Mary's Church but beyond this all is for the present conjecture owing to destruction of the records in that parish. It is highly probable that he was a relative of Sir Gregory Page Bart of Greenwich County of Kent England as their arms closely resemble each other and their crests are identical. (Page, p. 38)
  2. According to the original tombstones at Williamsburg and Rosewell, Col John Page and Alice his wife had two children viz 1 Francis Page eldest born at Williamsburg Va AD 1657 2 Matthew Page born at Williamsburg Va AD 1659 (Page, p. 40)
  3. The Williamsburg branch of the Page family in Virginia became extinct upon the death of Capt Francis Page without surviving issue The second son Matthew Page had an only son as we shall see from whom all the others are descended. (Page, p. 52)
