Sally’s 7-great Grandparents & 9-great Grandparents:
Richard Cording, surgeon ca 1625- ca 1668 | his parents
& Ann Browne ca 1648 – | her parents
& ca 1668 Mr. Southerland | his parents
of Norfolk Co, VA
This is my working hypothesis – the way I see it as of this moment!!
Richard Cording was a surgeon who died about 1668.
His wife Ann Browne remarried a Southerland.
Ann Browne was daughter of Lt. Col. Thomas Browne of Lower Norfolk Co, Va.
Thomas Browne died in 1666 and his will names sons: Thomas, John, Henry, Christopher, and William and daughters: Ann Cording, Elizabeth Browne, and Mary Browne.
Children of Richard Cording and Ann Browne:
1. Thomas Cording ca 1655 – ?
2. probably another son
