His will was recorded in 1538. In the portion of this will tht is known, only one son is identifed with certainty: Peter. "Per Worth Ray in TN Cousins.." I believe this John at St. Andrews Cambridge was the common ancestor of Antony of Over and Richard Peter, son of John and died in 1593, was their father. Richard became the father of Benjamin, Clerk of Council in VA, 1630, and Antony of Over was the father of Antony, who according to Nugent, came to VA in 1630, and is the direct ancestor of the Long, Nash, Halbert and Simonton line. Antony II was the father of Richard Harrison who received a land patent in VA July 6, 1664 (Nugent). He, in turn was the father of Andrew who married Eleanor _____________, and left a will inEssex Co. VA, 1718.
