  • Notes 
    • there is another Richard Dudley in South Farnham records, frequently with Peter who ran an ordinary from his house

      he is placed as a s/o Robert Dudley because his brother Richard's will does not name a son Richard.

      it appeares this family moved to Spotsylvania county because Dudley Gatewood in 1740 is buying land and his Robert was a constable in Caroline and later frequently in Spotsylvania records
