Seeking descendants of John Chinn/Chynn and related families for academic research regarding Northern Neck Virginia - most specifically during time period of 1680-1780.
Interested in both written and oral family histories, traditions, images, folklore etc regarding the connections of the below listed families. Would love to know more on stories handed down (or written - documents, diaries etc) regarding the intermarriages, family connections, politics, colonial economics, plantation life, slave relations, court systems/records, observations etc.
Related family names include: Conway, Pinkard, Downman, Ball, Glasscock, Heale, Chichester, Young, Taylor, Howson, Carter, Lee, Shearman, Nichols, Fox, Payne, Dangerfield, Stretchley, Thorton, Travers, Chilton, Edmonds, Trussell, McCarty, Dent, Davis, and I'm sure I missed a few..
