      William Pearsall was the trading partner of Isaac Sr. Allerton.

      The land records of Maryland reading with reference to this transactionas follows:-April 20, 1666, John Mott aggigned over unto William Stevens the right to the lands belonging to Daniel Clarke, William Pissell, Sezar Hopewell, Alexander Speed and Grace Parker. This record gives the names of those who were associated with William Pearsall in this trading station. The list of Early Settlers of Maryland, Book 9, page 297, discloses that William Pearsall had removed to St. Mary's County shortly before 1666 with two men and three women in his family which, being a single man, means the above persons with their wives. It must be remembered that some of the members of the trading station would be away an their boats at the time the census was made, which will account for the difference in numbers.

      Vickers-Mott Connections in northern Virginia 1670s

      I suspect that Mary Vickars that married Thomas Newton was the grandaughter of Thomas Vickars Clerk of Old Rappahannock Co. that lived next to John Buckner and d.1690 Glouchester Co. I also suspect that Thomas Vickars d.1690 had a son John that lived next to John Buckner in Stafford Co.

      I am trying to research to three documented John and Thomas (Vickers/Vickars/Viccars) connections to my Mott brothers, John and George, who were Planters in Colonial Virginia.

      -- In 1674, the orphaned children of George Mott received 9,019 acres on the Rappahnnock RIver for the transport of 180 persons; included in the list of those transported was Jno. Vickers.

      -- In his 1675 will, John Mott leaves half of his personal estate and his plantation to his nephew, John Vickers.

      -- In 1678, Thomas Vickars (Viccars), Clerk, received 1260 acres in Rappahannock County and the land is listed as adjacent to Mr. Mott's land.

      I would be very interested in exchanging information with anyone working this northern Virginia family line.

      Kind regards, Lisa

      I've found additional information that identifies Nathaniel Vickers as the son of my John Vickers, nephew of John Mott.
