John Pleasants was born in Norwich, Englad in 1643. After receiving the benefits of a college education in the country of his nativity, he sailed for America and landed in Virginia during the year 1668. Impressed with the opportunities that the new country and his surroundings offered, he settled at "Curles," in Henrico County, with the determination to give his best efforts in the cause of home and Country. Soon thereafter he wooed and won a life partner whose name was Jane Tucker, and these two reared an interesting family of children who gave to Virginia many sturdy men and women wo did well their duty in the cause of that freedom for which so many patriotic Virginians sacrificed their lives. His grandson, John Pleasants, of "Pique-Nique" (pronounced Picker-Nocker), married Susanna Woodson, and their son, James Pleasants, of "Contention," married Anna Randolph, fourth daughter of Isham Randolph and their son, James Pleasants, was United States Senator and govenor of VA.
