  • Major Thomas Jordan (1600 - bef.1644)
    Parents unknown, name of wife unknown. Not to be confused with Thomas Jordan, of Surry who married Lucy Rose . He was (probably) not the son of Samuel Jordan, of Jordan's Journey - as of 2012, DNA test...
  • Grace Robins (c.1603 - 1681)
    Legend claims she was an Irish lady of noble birth, who fled to America to escape a repugnant forced marriage. It's a pretty legend, but it isn't true. Hers is still quite a romantic and dramatic story...
