John Harrison of Cambridge was born 1470 in St Andrews, Cambridgeshire, ENG, and died 1538 in St. Andrews, Cambridgeshire, ENG.
Notes for John Harrison of Cambridge: Per Worth Ray in TN Cousins:
originally from the Bishopric of Durham (now County Durham) in the northern part of England. By the 15th or 16th centuries there were Harrisons settled all over England, especially to the south. It is not unlikely that John Harrison who made his will there in 1538 while a descendant of the original Harrisons of Durham, was closely related to the Standish and Lancaster Harrisons who had earlier drifted south.
" 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 in Essex co. VA, 1718."
