About Edith Dabney

Cornelius Dabney l (d 1694) was married first to Eedeth (__), probably during the 1660s They had three children: James, George, and Sarah, who were probably born during the 1660s or early 1670s

Eedeth was still living in 1678, when Cornelius mentioned her in a letter to Col. Moryson, but probably died soon after. Cornelius remarried to Susannah (__) about 1679.

Perhaps her parents were Governor of Virginia, Francis Moryson & Mary Winston but as of Dec 2017 there is no proof.

Sketches of the Dabneys in Virginia by William H. Dabney 1887

"All agree in the statement that soon after Cornelius d'Aubigne came to Virginia, his wife, who had come with him from England, than an invalid, died, and that he soon after married Sarah Jennings [SIC] who had accompanied them to this country to assist his wife in the cares of housekeeping."
