About Robert Edwards, of Isle of Wight

Robert Edwards was born 1608 in the United Kingdo, and died In in Isle of Wight Virginia.

His parents were not Joshua Edwards (1595-1664) and Margaret Babbs. Only 1 known (identified) child of Joshua & Babbs William Edwards (b est 1586) m. Unknown (Presumed m. Jonat Reese) -- [aka William of Llangyfelach, Wales] [5]

September, 1635, Robert Edwards, 27 sailed to Virginia, as bonded servant; accompanied by Rebecca Unknown.

Bonded to Georg Mynifie (Menafee). A Virginia merchant who paid transport for 60 persons in exchange for 50 acres each person transported. Shipping list included Rebecca, the wife of Robert Edwards. (p.31) Georg Mynifie applied for 3000 acres of Virginia land May 09, 1635 for transport of 60 persons at James City Court. The land was granted April 19, 1638. [2][3]


Names may be real -- Accounts appear to be fictionalized insofar as "Joshua's Line" This genealogy seems to be inaccurate and appears to have originated with the famed Edward Heirs Lawsuit and a series of books published thereafter (restating the same ancestors). Much of the Edwards line captured appears to be "Unsourced And Undocumented. (and generally conflicts with located record proof. ) [Ref Edwards Millions (See Robert & Rebecca (Indentured Servant) (co-mingled) & Duplicate Imports]
