It seems I am a descendant of William Bobbitt, Sr. from Wales, England, who took a land grant in Virginia Colony. However, the information I received in the past and the lists I find here confuse me.
My information states there were three brothers who came from Wales and took on the following names: Edward Bobbett, Robert Babbitt, and William Bobbitt. Edward Bobbett & Robert Babbitt stayed in the north. William Bobbitt went south to Virginia. William Bobbitt had one son named Thomas Bobbitt, will was probated and recorded in Sussex Co., VA in Record Book "A", page 116, on January 19, 1859 and he was married to Mary Hill. Thomas had three sons: John, Randolph, and William; he may have had other children as well.
These three sons served with distinction in the Revolutionary War. John and Randolph were to have moved to Pittsylvania County, and William moved to the western part of Virginia or what was known as the Valley of Virginia that included Rockbridge County and related areas.
The only other names I have been given dated from 1875-1959 which doesn't seem to be included in your genealogy -- at least when I've read of it so far.
I will have to see if the individual I received this from has found out anything more, but till then I thought I'd ask if any of the following names are familiar to you.
