Gilbert Atwood Sr Line in Virginia (Shennadoah County to Princess Anne County, Virginia)

Greetings to all Atwoods and their families.

Many Atwood clans are not aware there was a branch of the Gilbert Atwood Sr line that moved to the Princess Anne County, Va area from the Shenandoah County, Virginia area when the John R. Randolph clan started moving from the Shennadoah area of Virginia.

I hope the information provided here, will assist others in answering questions relative to the Gilbert Atwood Sr line. Starting with the Atwood Sr, first:

ii. Jeanne ?


It should be noted that William Walter Atwood, Sr. was the Atwood that moved from the Shenandoah County, Virginia area to Princess Anne County, Virginia, as this was the area that his wife, Sarah Ann Land was born in 1848, and was a well established area for the Land families of Princess Anne County, Virginia.

The majority of the William Walter Atwood line, are buried at the Charity Neck United Methodist Church Cemetery, just east of Pungo Bourough. Another large grave site for the Atwood clan is the Cemetery going to Sandbridge Beach which use to be Princess Anne County, but now is Virginia Beach, Virginia. Princess Anne County is now extant. Many of the Atwoods from the Gilbert Atwood line within now Virginia Beach, Virginia can be found on findagrave.com. Most of the Atwoods in Princess Anne County and Virginia Beach, Virginia can also be traced through RootsWeb.com

Additionally some Atwood researchers have mixed up William Lovell Atwood with William Lovett Atwood. There is a William Lovell Atwood traced back to the Sanderstead, Manor, Surry, England area, which I do have proof that this Gilbert Atwood Line is also linked back to Sanderstead Manor, Surry, England as well, and this may have caused some researchers problems. I have just not placed all the cards in their proper order, as yet, from Gilbert Atwood to the Sanderstead Manor, Surry, England.

If anyone can assist me to fill in some blanks above, that information will be appreciated, too.
And again, I hope this is helpful to all, especially to those Atwoods that have long scratched their heads making the Princess Anne Atwood connection to the Gilbert Atwood lines. In all, there are probably over 100 individuals that were born, raised, worked, and died within what use to be called Princess Anne County, Virginia.

Thank you,
