The tree trackers in my family have gone back to a Garrett Berry born about 1665 in Middlesex Co. VA. and died in 1720 in the same. He had a son named John born in 1695. They clearly aren't the same people, but the consistency with which my family reused family names makes me think that they may have been closely related. I would love to be able to make a connection back to England or Scotland. The only other clue I might have is that my father (generation 9) remembered his grandmother cursing the Catholics for the St. Bartholomew's Day Masacre, long before her time, but showing a family lore of a Huguenot heritage.

Thanks for the information. I show both men born in England and immigrated to Virginia. One source is the book "The Dudley Genealogies" Compiled by James Henry Mason, (Glendale, California 1987).
