Birth: 20 MAR 1636 in Bordon, Kent, England
Death: BEF 7 NOV 1677 in Charles City, Charles Co., Va
Jarvis Dix (b. abt 1616 in England, wife unknown)
Unknown Dix, b. abt 1642 in Virginia, died after 1677
Unknown Dix married (before 1669)
William Wingfield (b. 20 Mar 1636 in Bordon, Kent, England, died before 7 Nov 1677 in Charles City County, Virginia)
Children of Unknown Dix and William Wingfield:
Jarvis Wingfield, born abt 1669 Charles City County, Virginia, married Hannah Wynne (b. abt 1680), daughter of Thomas Wynne and Agnes Stith
Robert Wingfield, born probably before 1669, Charles City County, Virginia
Grandfather, Jarvis Dix, born 1616 and immigrated to Virginia by 1637. He came to the area of Charles City Co. which became Prince George Co. after 1702 (the area which later was called Bull Hill Creek), near present day boundary of Hopewell, VA. Robert and Jarvis Wingfield are listed in the 1704 quit rent rolls of Virginia with lands in the same area of Prince George Co.
We recall that the first known reference to Jarvis Wingfield, formerly was in Charles City Court order book, P., which read, "Petition of Jarvis Winkfield, dismissed". Since we know from the Albemarle Parish Register that Jarvis was born in 1669, this would make him about 21 years old; we also note that Prince George Co. was then part of Charles City County.
Unfortunately, almost all of the Charles City records were destroyed by fire, and only a few court order books remain. Apparently, however, one of these court order books does not have the circulation that the other transcripts do, and on an excursion to an out of the way library in Alexandria, Virginia, Michael David Wingfield Walker found the Charles City Court Order Book for 1676-1679, and found these reference:
"Ordered that Dr. John Coggan and John Howell appear at next court to prove the Will of Wm. Winkfield, dec'd, and that Wm. Dobson be summoned to give security for the estate of the orphans, 7 November 1677." (CCCOB 1676-1679, p. 229).
"Mr. Dobson, with consent of his wife, gives his two step sons, Jarvis and Robert Winkfield, to their grandfather, Jarvis Dix, for as long as the law provides, and at the expiration of their time, to give them whatever the court considers, "convenient", 16 November 1677."
"The above deed was conclusive proof that Jarvis and Robert Wingfield were the two surviving sons of William Wingfield and ________ Dix, the daughter of Jarvis Dix, immigrated by 1635. It also shows that Jarvis and Robert, and any sisters they may have had, were born in Virginia, since clearly their mother was. Jarvis Dix was born 1616, and thus was only 19 or younger when he immigrated, marrying, assumably, soon afterwards in Virginia.
