This is a great book, one of the best genealogical sources for me. On page 48 is mentioned a William Newsum. He is my father's father's father's/ father's father's father's / father's father's Father ... and is the first of our line(s) born in America
The Author, John Boddie, also wrote another series of books called (I think) Historical Southern Families. Seems like there are 13 volumes. In here he gives some information for other families:
Gilliam and Barham.
The book was in Madison Library, but I had never read it much. Then in about about 1995 I went to the Library at Surry because it's close to Chippoakes Creek, which I had read of in another source.
I mentioned some names and the (pretty old) librarian led me to this book and another-
...That was done by Surry County Historians. This one showed maps of these early Land patents.
