Searching for more information on the following:
(1) Giles Wilkins: Arrived VA shores 1620 on the ship
"The Supply" a sister ship to the
Mayflower. Part of the First Southern
Colony of Virginia settling at Barklay.
He is not listed as a Gentlemen so I
would presume him to have been an indentured
servant of sorts.
(2) John Wilkins: Part of 1033 early Virginia Pioneers
indexed at or near Jamestown in 1624.
He and his wife were listed on the Eastern
Shore (Accomack or Northampton Co's)
He rec'd 200 acres In Accomack Co. 1635-36,
brought the first negro into Northampton
Co. 1636 and the 2nd into Nansemond Co. 1637.
In 1641 he was the Burgess for Accomack Co.
Died about 1651.
This is all I know. Any further info would be greatly appreciated.
I have parts of many Wilkins lines in MD, DEL, PA, NJ, VA, NC, but
have yet to find our line with any certainty.

SOUTHERN HISTORICAL COLLECTION
EDMONIA CABELL WILKINS PAPERS
Abstract: Genealogist Edmonia Cabell Wilkins and members
of her family, including Edmonia's greatgrandfather,
planter William Wyche Wilkins (1768-1840); William's twin
brother, planter and lawyer John Limbrey Wilkins
(1768-1850); and William's son, planter and lawyer Edmund
Wilkins (1796-1867). Personal and business
correspondence, financial and legal papers, genealogical
materials, and other papers of several generations of the
Wilkins family of Greensville and Brunswick counties,
Va., and Northampton County, N.C. Most of the letters
are financial in nature. Financial and legal materials,
1782-1909, include bills and receipts concerning
property, plantation affairs, and investments in several
Virginia and North Carolina railroads; a few documents
relating to the purchase and upkeep of slaves; lawyers'
accounts and trial dockets from Halifax and Northampton
counties, N.C.; and other legal and business papers.
Plantation papers relate chiefly to the Belmont and
Meadows plantations in Northampton County. Also included
are account books for a shoemaker, a blacksmith, and the
Gaston Hotel in Gaston, N.C. Other papers include
notebooks of law students at the Litchfield Law Academy,
Litchfield, Conn., ca. 1817-1819, and of a medical
student at the University of Pennsylvania, 1851-1860.
About half the collection consists of items relating to
the genealogical activities of Edmonia C. Wilkins,
1920-1949. There is little information on the Civil War
or sectional tensions of the time.

WILLIE T. WILKINS JR.
Thank you so much for your reply. Yes, this is definently
tying together some more of the Wilkins I have identified
through various resources but have been unable to match up.
Your invaluable information has helped me to succeed.
Now, if I could just figure out which line of Wilkins my
family came from I would be happy. Will keep working
forward on my problem.
Here's what I have.
the first Wilkins came to Jamestown in 1618 aboard the "Marygould", on July 24, 1635 more Wilkins were reported arriving on the "Assurance." In about 100 years my family had migrated to Redbank district, Halifax County, VA.
John Wilkins b. 1599
came to Jamestown in 1628 aboard "Marygould", granted 1,300 acres in Nansemond and Northhampton. Wife Bridget Craft (eventually remarried a second wife), before leaving for England in 1600's he transferred all lands to his son John and his second wife's names, and he never returned.
John's son Robert (which John I do not know) had a son named Thomas Henry father of John W. Wilkins Sr. (wife Mildred Parish, b. 1785 in Mecklenburg County, VA). John W. Sr died 7/30/1838 they were the parents of Leroy, William Avery, Josiah R., John W. Jr, and numerous others.
Leroy born 2/27/1817 married Rebecca Ann Hite (b. a1821, d. 1879). Their children were Leroy Spencer Wilkins (2/22/1842-4/4/1906), James Parham (7/3/1845-6/28/1920), Elizabeth (1849-), Richard Franklin (1854-), Parthenia Perry (12/1856-1889), Louise R. (1860-).
Leroy Spencer migrated to Arkansas between 1871-1875. Married Caroline Vivian (or Virgina) born 12/10/1843. They were cousins. Leroy Spencer enlisted in the Civil War on 10-19-1861 in Richmond, VA, he served w/ Company C, 2nd Battalion in the NC Infantry and Company G, 59th Virginia Infantry. Their children were Jefferson Davis Milous (8/28/1861-12/28/1935), John Spencer (1/30/1865-1/29/1938), Lee Wise (3/19/1871-11/13/1915), Mary W. (12/21/1865-12/10/1879), Ellen (5/19/1974-1/19/1875),
William M. (8/18/1877-6/18/1879), and an infant son (born and died 12/25/1879).
John Spencer married Dora Alice Saterfield. They had Rosa Lee Wilkins (3/13/1892-5/18/1927), James Arthur (5/30/1894-1/13/1976), William Edward (10/23/1896-7/9/1982), Virgie (5//9/1898-1903), Maudie (9/9/1901-1906), John Spencer Jr. (5/22/1904-4/16/1909), Odis Adolph (1/22/1908-?), Earl Enis (9/23/1910-5/30/1987), Fredie Coy (2/20/1913-1/5/1969).
Rosa Lee married Fred Hardy Tucker. There children were Opal (4/22/10-8/5/1990), Margaret (3/28/1913-), Pauline (5/22/1915-), James Fred (1/3/1921-present), Lucille (5/16/1923-), Troy Earl (2/26/1925-), Floy (twin of Troy died (6/21/25), Charles (7/15/1926-).
That's all I have, hope it helps someone.
I am searching for Rebecca Wilkins, probably a sister of John Limbrey Wilkins as she was the daughter of Robert Wilkins and Mary Limbrey. I would like to have proof of whom she married. Can you help?
Re: Wilkins and Jamestown
I see Pathenia Perry Wilkins listed in your lineage. Since my 3x-greatgranfather was Charles A. Wilkins married to Elizabeth Perry, I am searching for their parents. Any connection?
Re: Wilkins and Jamestown
What is the connection between Parenthia Perry Wilkins and Charles A. Wilkins and Elizabeth Perry? Feel free to email me in order to discuss this possible connection more in depth.
Re: Wilkins and Jamestown
My father Robert Pearlman Wilkins (born March 5, 1906) was son of Lee Wise Wilkins. I have information of all his siblings. I do not have much information on any information going back to his father and grandfather. I would love to know where in Europe Wilkins came from and what heritage we are.
