Unfortunately the date of their departure from Bristol, the name of vessel they boared and the date of their arrival at Virginia is not shown.

Research by Glanton Awbrey Briggs conclude that John, Thomas and Henry Awbrey of Brecknockshire, sons of Sir William Awbrey (d 1631) sailed for America and in all probability, from the Port of Bristol.

Henry Awbrey was one of these boats, as noted in his last Will and Testament in which he requested that it be sold. If he had been a Captain of on of the larger type sea-going vessels he would have borne the title Captain or Mariner with his name in Virginia Records.

Henry Awbrey was member of the House of Burgesses, representing Rappahannock Co and Essex Co. When it was formed from Rappahannock in 1692

"As found in the records of Isle of Wight, Lancaster, (Old) Rappahannock, Richmond, Essex and Caroline Counties, Virginia."

On page 39-40, "The number of children of Henry Awbrey is not completely clear. Some researchers have maintained that there were sons named John and Francis; instead, these appear to have been sons of his brother, John Awbrey. It should be noted that in two deeds in 1690 (Rappahannock Co Deed Book 8, p. 254-6), Henry named Richard Awbrey as his "only son and heir apparent." In one of those deeds he gave Richard 500 acres from the 1050 acre grant on the south side of Hoskins Creek, which portion adjoined the lands of John Meador. When Henry Awbrey made his will in 1694 (Essex Co Court Order Book 1692-1695, p. 311), he named as heirs only his wife Mary [not SARAH] and son Richard.

" It appears quite certain that Richard Awbrey NOT was the son of Sarah, because in a deed in 1675 (Rappahannock Co Deed Book 5, p. 287) Henry gave his son Richard a year-old mare called 'Bonny until said Richard be 14 years of age.' Thus, Richard would have been born 1675-14=1651, Henry and Sarah apparently married abt 1664 Feb 27

Richd Awbrey (Seale)

Signed Sealed and Published the Last Will and Testament in the Presence of

Phillip (x) Maquires; Susanna (x) Maquires; Tho: Hucklescott ;

Proved in Essex County Court Oct. 11,1697.]

This statement found on the net folks are trying found why Richard cause John Meador is brother. Richard was abt 11/12 when Henry married Sarah_ Meador mother of John Meador born 1658/60. They raise like brothers and Richard thought of him as his brother not just his step-brother

"When Richard Awbrey made his will, which was probated Octobet 11, 1697 ( Essex Co Deeds, etc.No. 9, p.127), he named John Meador as 'brother'. Considerable speculation has arisen about the exact nature of this relationship. Some have said that the term 'brother' could have meant 'brother-in-law', on the assumption that John Meador (for his second wife) could have married a daughter of Henry Awbrey and thus a sister to Richard. No such daughter of Henry Awbrey has been documented. Another speculation has been that Richard's wife, Dorothy, was a sister of John Meador. John Meador did not have sister Dorothy. In actuality, Richard's wife was Dorothy North, daughter of Augustine North ("Winstons of Virginia" by Clayton Torrence, p. 174).

Richard Awbrey and John Meador were step-brother but Richard thought of John as brother for they were not far from the same age

“In that grant, it is stated that it was being made to Thomas Meador, Orphan, son of Thomas Meador, deceased. As no such father and son pair (both named Thomas) existed in the family of Ambrose Meador, it must certainly have been that Thomas Meads who died in 1655 and his son Thomas. The further descent of this 450 acre tract (Rappahannock Co Deed Book 5, p. 261 and Deed Book 6, p. 98) through John Meador is very clear. This grant adjoined the grant of Henry Awbrey on Hoskins Creek, and particularly the portion given by Henry to his son Richard Awbrey. It is most logical that Thomas Meador, Orphan, and Thomas Meador the Younger were the same, and that Sarah Meador, the widow of Thomas Meador the Younger, who made provision for her son 'John Meador of Hoskins Creek,' was the wife of Henry Awbrey and the mother of Richard Awbrey. Thus the conclusion is virtually inescapable that Sarah was the mother of both John Meador and Richard Awbrey, making them half-brothers. This would explain why Richard called John Meador his 'brother' in his will.”

Another story:

“" Regrettably, efforts to trace the descendants of the two other children of Sarah Meador/Awbrey have proven nearly fruitless. No further mention in Essex records has been found of Phillip and Susannah McGuire. Col Francis Gouldman became a prosperous and prominent landowner in St. Mary's Parish of Essex County, but when he drew his will in 1717 (Essex Co. Deeds & Wills No. 14, p.680. dated January 9, 1715/16. pro. November 21, 1716), he mentioned no (living) children. Bequests were made to his nephews, the sons of Edward Gouldman, and to his niece, the daughter of his brother Thomas Gouldman, deceased. Mary, the wife of Francis, followed in death a few months later (Essex Co.Deeds & Wills No. 15, p. 43, dated January 30, 1716/7, pro. May 21, 1717). In her will no children were mentioned, but there was a bequest to Dorothy Billups, who was the daughter of Richard Awbrey and thus her niece."

Facts

Phillip and Susannah McGuire. Susannah is Meador and step sister to Richard Awbrey but could Phillip McGuire be grandson of a Henry Awbrey’s daughter who married Philip Maguire. This would make Phillip McGuire Richard’s nephew

Then there is Col Francis Gouldman mention in Richard Awbrey’s will. Mary Meador married Col Francis Gouldman. Mary Meador is step sister to Richard Awbrey. But Col Francis Gouldman parents were Thomas Gouldman and Alice Awbrey, this makes Col Francis Gouldman a nephew of Richard Awbrey.

“INDEX TO MARRIAGES OF OLD RAPPAHANNOCK AND ESSEX COUNTIES, VIRGINIA 1655 -1900” by Eva Eubank Wilkerson

1728 Awbrey, Dorothy, daughter Richard married John Billings

1697 Awbrey, Dorothy, Relict of Richard (daughter), Thomas Gouldman (her cousin)

1699 Awbrey, Dorothy, widow of Richard, married Peter Ransome

Now Victor Paul Meador in his book states that John Meador married as his 2nd wife Awbrey

The only Awbrey left was Mary daughter of Richard and Dorothy North Awbrey

Henry brother John was in Westmoreland County, Virginia while Henry was in Old Rappahannock/Essex Counties, Virginia. John Awbrey are counted for with spouses.

I think John Meador married Mary Awbrey daughter of Richard and Dorothy North Awbrey
