      Historical Society, Vol. 4 (1983). p. 179:
      "Our Virginia branch of the Evans family begins with Griffith Evans who was a political prisoner and is found bound for Barbadoes in 1635.

      "The Virginia records do not show that Griffith Evans came to Virginia,
      but it is thought that Peter [1] Evans of Richmond County, Virginia, was his son. Griffith Evans age 40 years was put aboard the 'Falcon' at Gravesend, England, bound for the Barbadoes Dec. 19, 1635 (Hotten)."
