  • **************************************************************

John Pace, son of Joseph and Margaret, was christened Sept. 22, 1665; Wrockwardine, Shropshire, England.

Researchers of the Middlesex County, Virginia Paces believe that the John Pace who was christened in Wrockwardine came to Virginia, where "John Pace of Middlesex" had ten children born between 1694 and 1713. Y-DNA has proven that the Wrockwardine, Shropshire and Middlesex, Virginia Pace families are related, but researchers have not proven whether the John Pace christened in Wrockwardine is the same man who came to Virginia (or perhaps a cousin). The Wrockwardine man is the right age to be John Pace of Middlesex.

John Pace, of Middlesex, VA

It would appear that two separate families claim the same man!

It is highly unlikely that he had families in both Yorkshire and Virginia. More research is needed to determine whether John Pace of Shropshire = either John Pace of Middlesex or John Pace of Yorkshire.
