      Nathaniel /Frith/
      Nathaniel Thrift (Frith) is the first ancestor we have been able to verify through wills, deeds and even histories of the time me.
      Nathaniel Frith made up his will in 1676 prior to joining a militia action on to retaliate against Indians invading and killing 30 settlers in what is n now Westmoreland, Essex and Richmond Counties of Virginia.
      This retaliatory act ion was declared illegal by Governor Berkeley. The confrontation between the settlers and the governor became known as Bacon's Rebellion.
      Nathaniel's Will was probated in 1677, indicating that he was probably killed in action or s suffered wounds from which he did not recover.
