This is the second of three volumes that will eventually comprise the fourth edition of the landmark "Adventurers of Purse and Person." Individuals identified in the work must have been resident in Virginia during the period 1607-1624/25 or members of the Virginia Company of London in order to be designated "adventurers," and it is their descendants alone who qualify for membership in one of the most distinguished hereditary societies in America, the Order of First Families of Virginia. "Adventurers of Purse and Person" is their story, a collection of genealogies of all adventurers with proven descents into the sixth generation.
