least one authority believes there were two other sons: George
and James." !Kentucky Ancestors Vol. 2, No. 4 - "to Va. in 1653"
!Per Worth Ray in TN Cousins: " I believe this John at St.
Andrews Cambridge was the common ancestor of Antony of Over and
Richard Peter, son of John and died in 1593, was their father.
Richard became the father of Benjamin, Clerk of Council in VA,
1630, and Antony of Over was the father of Antony, who,
according to Nugent, came to VA in 1630, and is the direct
ancestor of the Long, Nash, Halbert and Simonton line. Antony II
was the father of Richard Harrison who received a land patent in
VA July 6, 1664 (Nugent). He, in turn was the father of Andrew
who married Eleanor_________, and left a will in Essex Co. VA,
1718." !Internet, Aug., 1996: : Anthony came to Virginia by 1650
accompanied or induced to come through the efforts of Samuel
BONNAM. George was listed as a child of Anthony (ID# 987) by
Tenn Cousins but other references indicated George (ID# 1015) is
a child of John Harrison. We are currently using Otey's
conclusions on this family. More research is necessary to
determine actual ancestry. See further records on ID# 6346.
Anthony + (Jr) who migrated with his father to Virginia along
with cousin Benjamin (alegedly the ancestor of Ben the Signer).
!P. Grout" <email@example.com> Mar. 14, 1997 - I'll
summarize what the book says about the ancestors of Andrew
(d.1718). Richard Harrison had a brother named Andrew. Their
father's name is Anthony Harrison, Jr. Anthony's father was
Anthony, Sr. (b. ca. 1563), son of Peter Harrison (d. 1593).
Peter's father is John Harrison. "Written history of this family
seems to begin with the will of John Harrison of St. Andrews,
Cambridge, England recorded in 1538 in which John mentions his
sons, Peter, Hugh George, and Richard."
