There is no proof that Elizabeth Yeardley, daughter of Governor Sir George Yeardley & Temperance West, Lady Yeardley, married Major Joseph Croshaw. None of the scholarly books on either the Yeardley or the Croshaw families make this claim. It used to be claimed in the Wikipedia article on Joseph Croshaw but, when the claim was shown to be unproven, the Wiki article was edited, showing an unnamed first wife.

"... the information regarding the marriage of Elizabeth Yeardley (or Yardley) and Joseph Croshaw seems to have sprung from the imagination of one John Monahan of Charlottesville, VA in a letter to the Huguenot Society of Manikin Town. What his connection to the Dumases and Croshaws is unknown. I have always regarded this letter with a grain of salt; his wife was the woman who claimed to be "Anastasia Romanov," daughter of Nicholas and Alexandra, and whose claims proved false. ..."


As of at least May 28, 2013, the reference to Elizabeth Yeardley, daughter of Gov. and Capt. George Yeardley and Temperance Flowerdew West, was restored as follows:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joseph_Croshaw

Croshaw married five times and had six children:[2]

  • 1. Elizabeth Yeardley (b.1615 in James City, Va.; died 1666 in Bruton Parish, York Co., Va.)
    • Elizabeth is a daughter of Gov.and Capt. George Yeardley, and his wife, Temperence Flowerdew West.
      • Mary Croshaw (1632-1687), married 1. Henry White; 2. Thomas Taylor.
      • Richard Croshaw (1633- )
      • Rachel Croshaw (1635-1670), married 1. Ralph Graves (grandson of Captain Thomas Graves); and 2. Richard Barnes.
      • Betty Croshaw (1636-1637)
      • [Ursula]Unity Croshaw(1636-1669), married Colonel John West.
      • Benjamin Croshaw (1640-1645), died young.
      • Joseph Croshaw (1642-1650), died young.

      • Joseph Croshaw (1667-1682)

If it turns out there is more "proof" of an absence of marriage to Elizabeth Yeardley than an unnamed poster on Genforum, will change accordingly.
