    George Billups , B. C 1630 in England, d. 6 Aug 1673 in Gloucester Co., VA. Married 1655, Sarah __.
    Born in Wales, England on 1625. George married Sarah > and had 2 children. He passed away on 1680 in Amelia, Virginia, USA
    George Billups (-c.1675)
    I was in the Colony by 25 November 1653 when the governor granted me 750 acres on a branch of Milford Haven next to the land of John Lilley. My home was in that part of Gloucester County that today is Mathews County and the branch is now known as Billups Creek. I renewed my patent 18 March 1662/3 and added 250 acres on Garden Creek 27 January 1663/4.
    Because the office of the Gloucester County clerk burned more than once, no official governmental records of my family are in the courthouse. Yet some information about my family is in the register and vestry book for Kingston Parish where we were parishioners. It’s fortunate, too, that our family kept many of our own documents, 4,000 fragments of which were discovered in a vacant loft in Mathews County.
    These documents reveal that I and my sons were shipbuilders. A little piece of my will dated 6 August 1673 shows that Sarah and I had sons George and John and a daughter whose name was torn off. Richard Billups who had land near me may have been our son, too.
    The patent process took a few years, so it is not strange for the governor to convey land to a dead person. I may have been in that category when I got another 500 acres on Garden Creek in 1674. I was definitely gone by 22 December 1682 when a patent for a parcel on Milford Haven mentioned 40 acres bought of Mr. George Billups, deceased



    George Billups came to the Virginia Colony with his two brothers, William and Thomas, from Britain in 1655. He had obtained a Local Grant of Land from the King which reads:
    OFFICE OF THE SECRETARY OF THE COMMONWEALTH
    TO ALL to Whom these presents shall come Greeting
    Now Know yee, that I the said Richard Bennett, Esqr. Knight Governor &c. Do give and grant unto George Billups seven Hundred and Fifty acres of land, lying upon the branch of Milford Haven, Beginning at a Dividing point and running up a Creek which divides this land from the land of John Lillies, Southerly three hundred and seventy five pole, west by north eighty pole, North by west a little Northerly one hundred and sixty pole to dividing point first specified. The said land being due unto the said George Billups by and for the Transportation of fifteen persons into the colony&c. To have and to hold the said tract or parcel of land &c. To be help etc. Yielding and Paying &c. Which payment is made on the Feast of St. Michael the Archangel. Provided &c. Dated the 25th of November 1653. (Patent Book 3, p 2)
    The plantation he developed is still intact today. It was in or about this same year that he married a lady named Sarah.
    It was in Kingston Parish of Gloucester (Now Mathews) County, Virginia, that George settled - on the southwest side of Milford Haven Creek on a branch that would come to be known as Billups Creek. There is still a village in Wales known as Milford Haven. Today, Milford Haven, Virginia is a town and it is assumed Billups and his descendants that named the town in honor of their home. Some of George Billups have inhabited the 750 acre estate since its beginnings.
    George Billups was born, ca. 1625, in Wales. However, the efforts of many researchers have been fruitless to uncover details of his early life or his ancestry. In fact, many of the documents to be found in court records and salvaged from Church and plantations are very sketchy at best and often more confusing than helpful. So many intermarriages were occurring - acceptable and common until recent decades - and so many names recurred from generation to generation among cousins, nieces, and nephews, as well as children, that questions faced today will not be easily answered in the future.
