Peyton's Along the Aquia Genealogy
The PEYTON Book is a well documented genealogy that includes the history and heritage of the PEYTON/PAYTON family. It spans two generations of English PEYTON forebears, and nine generations of the Virginia descendants of Henry PEYTON of Lincoln's Inn. His sons were among the Cavaliers of the Northern Neck of Colonial Virginia. After the Restoration of King Charles II, some returned to England. Of the two who remained, Colonel Valentine PEYTON and Gentleman Henry PEYTON, only the latter left PEYTON descendants. The brothers were seated at Stony Hill, their plantation along Aquia Creek, in what is now Stafford County. Included is an ancient PEYTON pedigree beginning with Robert PEYTON (circa 1640-1694) of Gloucester, Virginia and continuing back twenty-nine generations to the Vikings. The book details the PEYTON line from Henry PEYTON, circa 1560, to Martha Ann Elizabeth PEYTON (1844-1927). No living people are included, however there are charts where one may include a personal family lineage. It is indexed.
