About William Bybee

Probably a younger or even youngest son, with few or no expectations in England.

In "Muster rolls of Settlers in Virginia" was listed: William Bibbie age 22, in the SWAN, 1620. William landed at Accawmacke Plantation on the "Eastern Shore" in VA seven months before the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth rock. Additionally, in "Family and Local Histories," William Bibby is listed as living in Elizabeth Cittie, in 1624. He is also listed in "The Living and the Dead in Virginia." February, 1623, as residing "at the Eastern Shore."


William died before September 25, 1637, and his wife died in November of the same year. The two orphaned children, Edmund and Elizabeth, were taken into the care of Captain William Roper and George Travellor, respectively - but with very different results.
