  • Notes 
    • SAMUEL, probably the third son of Lawrence Dameron , as he was a con
      temporary of his sons George and Bartholomew.

      Samuel was discovered by Louise H. Dameron in the Calendar of Virginia State Papers I, p. lit, "On April 114,1683, a petition was presented from Peter Knight, John Waddy, John Taylor and Christopher
      Garlington, Vestrymen, and Samuel, George and Bartholomew Dameron, Church Wardens,
      to Lord Culpeper requesting him to re-instate Mr, Charles Dacres, the rector of
      Yecomico Church." Yecomico Church must here be a spelling for Wicomico Church
      in Wicomico Parish, rather than Yeocomico Church in Westmoreland County, but one
      can never be quite sure. In 1663 Westmoreland was formed from Northumberland which
      would be earlier. Samuel appears to be too old to be the son of any of the first
      generation in America as he would have to be 21 years of age to be a church warden,
      so far as I know, though it is conceivable he might be a son of Thomas.

      SAMUEL, a lost son found by Louise H. Dameron in the Calendar of
      Virginia State Papers I, p. 14, "On April 14, 1683, a petition was presented
      from Peter Knight, John Waddy, John Taylor and Christopher Garlington, Vestrymen;
      and SAMUEL, George and Bartholomew Dameron, Church Wardens, to Lord Culpeper,
      requesting him to re-instate Mr. Charles Dacres, the rector of Yecomico Church."
      (See page 12 -Supplement.) Samuel's wife may have been a daughter of Onesipherous
      Harvey to account for using this given name.

      mm: this may be the Dr. Samuel Damourvell in Westmoreland
