About Elizabeth Nuthall

Parentage uncertain - presumed to be the daughter of a Nathaniel Bacon, but there were several men available by that name.

May have come from London England to VA on 10 Aug 1635 on ship "Safety" - an "Elizabeth Holloway" was on that ship, but no other Holloways. The identification, as it stands, is dubious.

There is no record of when, or on what ship, John Holloway arrived in Virginia. It is generally assumed that he married Elizabeth IN Virginia circa 1642.


Maiden name also reported as Newport

First child, Priscilla Holloway, born after her father's death, in late 1643 or the very beginning of 1634 (which would still be counted as "1643" by Colonial reckoning).

Married John Nutthall within a few months of her widowhood (c. 1644). It was the second marriage for both of them (and he would go on to marry a third time).

Death date suspiciously precise (such precision is rare in actual primary documentation of the time). She was certainly deceased by 1660, when John Nutthall took his third wife.
