John Cherry & Elizabeth Faithful

 

John Cherry Sr. 1619 -1699 | his parents
& Elizabeth Faithful 1625 – | her parents
of Bray, England &
of Norfolk County, VA


This is my working hypothesis – the way I see it as of this moment!!


On the internet, someone has traced this family back into the 1300’s in France to the name De Che Roi.

One thought on “John Cherry & Elizabeth Faithful”

  1. Interesting information on the Cherry lineage. I come from the Cherry family of John Cherry Sr. and Elizabeth Faithful through their son John Cerry Jr. and Rebecca Maund through their son Lemuel Cherry through his daughter Rebecca Cherry 1721 who married into the Hodges lineage.
