Stanard's Colonial Register is woefully out of date and seriously flawed - based as it was on a very limited collection of sources available to him at the time. Among other failings, Stanard didn't have an accurate reoord of the meeting dates of the colonial legislature (as the Kennedy / McIlwaine edition of the Journals of the House of Burgesses hadn't yet been published) so his lists of members of the legislature cannot be relied on. The preferred source is Cynthia Miller Leonard, comp. Register of the General Assembly of Virginia published by the Virginia State Library (now the Library of Virginia) in 1978.
