Gloucester County PEYTONs

This is from "SELDON and Kindred of Virginia" by Edna Mae Seldon, 1941, page 133: "Dr. Valentine PEYTON ... daughter, Elizabeth Washington PEYTON ..." when PEYTON researchers believed that the PEYTON family of Northern Virginia was descended from the Gloucester County, Virginia PEYTONs. Later genealogical research has discounted that theory.

The Genealogy of the PEYTON family of Gloucester County, Virginia is included in Reverend Horace Edwin Hayden's 1891 genealogy, "PEYTON, of England and Virginia," on pages 468 through 479.

Dr. Valentine PEYTON and his family appear on page 45 of PEYTONs Along the AquiaAccording to recent genealogies, the father-in-law of Elizabeth Washington PEYTON was Governor Patrick HENRY. Elizabeth's second husband was Reverend George PATTERSON.

Mary Howe PEYTON, her father John PEYTON, and their PEYTON family appear on page 60, of PEYTONs Along the Aquia.
