Lulu.com, Aug 15, 2008 - 138 pages
Reverend Horace Edwin HAYDEN, continues to be the leading genealogist of the PEYTON family of Virginia. His celebrated book, "Virginia Genealogies," published in 1891, included a chapter on the PEYTON family: "PEYTON, 'of Iselham,' Cambridgeshire, England, Gloucester, and Westmoreland Counties, Virginia." The author closely followed the English PEYTON lines in the 1878 book "Genealogical Memoirs of the Extinct Family of Chester of Chicheley," by Robert E. Chester WATERS. One hundred seventeen years ago, when Reverend HAYDEN published the lineage and history of the PEYTON family of Virginia, his work was the most comprehensive and accurate in data, scope and material ever received. Since then, his extensive "Peyton" chapter in "Virginia Genealogies" has formed the basis of all succeeding published genealogies of the Peyton family.This scanned reprint will be a welcome and necessary resource for those studying the PEYTON family of Virginia. His acclaimed essay "Descent" is included.
