Colonial Virginians and Their Maryland Relatives: A Genealogy of the Tucker Family and Also the Families of Allen, Blackistone, Chandler, Ford, Gerard, Harmor, Hume, Monroe, Skaggs, Smith, Stevesson, Stone, Sturman, Thompson, Ward, Yowell, and Others
This copiously documented volume sheds new light on one of the earliest families to settle in Virginia, that of Captain William Tucker of London, and on a number of allied families whose progenitors figured in the early history of the Virginia and Maryland colonies. William Tucker arrived at Jamestown in 1610 on the Mary and James. He was an original stockholder in the Virginia Company of London. Captain Tucker, who resided in Elizabeth City, Virginia in 1624, is remembered as a colonial merchant and as a member of the House of Burgesses and the Privy Council. He also gained notoriety for leading reprisals against the Warrasqueake and Nansemond Indians in 1622 and 1623.

The paragraph pertaining to William Smith and his wife Sarah is not correct. I have a copy of a note written by the author that states that she later realized her mistake as she confused this William Smith with another William Smith. Wm Smith and Sarah were the parents of Mary Smith, who married Arthur King, Temperance Smith, who married Charles Lucas and Jane Smith who married Captain Charles Ashton.
Norma has done a fine job animating the history of the Tuckers. Superb writing skills, combined with accurate information, make this historical account both entertaining and informative.
