In the last couple of years, an English researcher has done a great deal of research in England which seems to prove that the Richard Yarborough who md. Frances Proctor was NOT our Richard Yarborough, the immigrant. The Richard Yarborough who md. Frances Proctor died in England leaving a will there, before our Richard Yarborough appears in the records of early VA .

The following will of Richard Yarborough was made in England in 1639, as the earliest record that we have in the US for Richard Yarborough the immigrant was 1640, the Richard of this will (who is the one who md. Frances Proctor)is NOT our Richard Yarborough, the immigrant. This will was uncovered a couple of years ago by an English researcher, Peter Yerbergh, who is involved in an exhaustive ongoing search of the Yarborough family in England. As of this date, to my knowledge, no one has proven just who our Richard Yarborough was or which Yarborough family in England he came from.

Dear Ann,

Thank you so much for bringing this question out for our attention as well as publishing the will of the Richard Yarbrough left in 1639. This really is going to take some deep research which may not be accessible in most Libraries.

It was very kind and generous of you and we appreciate it!
