Would anyone know of a Maximilian Petty that came to Virginia prior to 1675.? He was undersheriff in Middlesex County, Virginia. He died 12 Dec 1687 in that county and state. He married Christian Hill and in his will he left her as a widow with two children, Max who was ten and Ann who was seven and a half years old. Maximilian and Christian are my grandparents. I descend from Ann that married Thomas Smith. They were in Middlesex County, Va.
Could my Maximilian Petty descend from the family of John Petty of Tetsworth, Oxfordshire, England.? There were one or two Maximilian Petty's in that family and they were of Tetsworth and Stokes Talmadge These families have dates of 1622-1634 that i have seen and were connected to Anthony Wood and Anne Johnson of Whitney and a Webley family, a Holt family. There is also a Maximilian Petty in this family that was granted arms in 1570 and had ten children that were born in Tetsworth although I don't know all the names of his children.
Any information would greatly be appreciated.
