      note: George Hardy came to Virginia before 1636, when he is called "Ship- right." In 1644 he patented 300 acres (increased to 500 in 1648), situated upon Lawne's creek and bordering upon Alice Bennett's land (doubtless widow of Robert Bennett, of London), for 6 persons, Thomas Sabin, Thomas Hardy, George Nettleford, James Strong, and John Smith. He had a noted mill, which is still used. From this family of Hardy was descended Hon. Samuel Hardy, a prominent member of the Continental Congress.
