Unknown Polk, sister of Gilliss Polk and Judge William Polk) and had children: Henry E. Bayley, Josiah Bayley, Thomas Bayley, James Bayley, and Patience Bayley. The relationship of Esme Bayly to Thomas of Accomac, combined with tombstone and other records found in Whitelaw's VA Eastern Shore has been used as a basis for this Bayly family.
