Randall possible Randolph prior to arriving in America, came to the American Colonies on the GEORGE in 1620-1621. This probably at Dr. John Pott's expense and on February 16, 1625, he was a servant in Pott's Household in urban Jamestown. By January 30, 1625, he had moved to Pott's leasehold in the Governor's Land, where he was described as an 18 year old servant. The General Court noted that Randall Holt was obliged to serve Dr. Pott until Christmas [early January 1627.} Around 1829 Randall married Mary Bailey the daughter and sole heir of John Bailey. In September of 1636 Randall patented 400 acres at the head of Lower Chippokes Creek and in July 1639; he acquired 490 acers of land on Hog Island along with 400 acers his late wife had inherited there. Sometime prior to March 9, 1640; Randall Holt [1] sold two African to Merchant George Menefie, owner of a lot in urban Jamestown and a plantation in Charles City.

Randall Holt I (b. 1607) was 13 years old when he arrived at Jamestown aboard the "George" in 1620. He was the orphaned son of Randoulphe Holte and wife Elizabeth Potts (possibly a relative of Dr. John Pott)., although he was listed on the manifest of the "George" as a servant and misidentified as indentured (a field hand) he was actually apprenticed to (a ward) Dr. John Pott, Physician general, to the Colony, who was responsible for his support and education. There is no direct or documentary evidence to support this theory, circumstances indicate that it may be a fact. Dr. Pott, and young Holt, were in the party of Sir Francis Wyatt, the newly appointed Governor of Virginia, and as a part of the colony's "Administration" were provided with a house on the "Governor's Land. As a member of Dr. Pott's household, Randall was introduced to important people of the London Company and leaders of the Virginia Colony. Through these introductions he made powerful friends and learned useful skills It was even through these contacts that he even made his future wife, the heiress Mary Bailey (Bayly). Randall and Mary Bailey (Bayly) were married at Hogg Island, Surry County, Colonoal Virginia.
