About Edward Harris


More work needs to be done, but circumstantial evidence seems to indicate that Edward Harris was born about 1628 in Shirley Hundred, Charles City County, Virginia, as the youngest son of John Harris and Dorothy Lymbry, and as such, would not have enjoyed any substantial inheritance from his father John who was moderately wealthy for the time period and location. I believe that he settled in the Pagan River area with his other siblings in the late 1640's while still a teenager and was married to Martha Hardy about 1655. Based on my research, it appears that John Harris and Dorothy Lymbry had the following children: Thomas 1616; Dorothy 1619; John 1624; Robert 1626; Edward 1628. There may have been two more who died as infants.

Edward Harris, probable son of Thomas Harris d1677, married Martha Hardy, daughter of the John Hardy who was the above named head right of Thomas Harris d 1677 who is buried in the Westover Chapel Cemetery in Charles City, see Her mother was John Hardy's first wife.
