Roger Williamson from England and Lower Norfolk County, Virginia
Princess Anne County was formed from part of Lower Norfolk County Virginia in 1651
On June 5 1746 ROGER WILLIAMSON married ANN FOSTER
Ann Foster was born in England in 1620 and died in Princess Ann County, Virginia around 1692. Roger Williamson died about 1650 and his wife, Ann Foster Williamson remarried. Her new husband was John Carroway who came to America with his good friend Roger Williamson. It is unknown if Ann Foster married Roger Williamson in England or America. All three came to America about 1640. This was about 33 years after the London Company first settled in Jamestown Virginia. John and Ann Foster Williamson had three children. Ann Foster Williamson and John Carroway also had three children.
At the present time I think Ann Foster may have come to America with her parents and her brother, Richard Foster. I know for a fact that her brother Richard was in America. Her Father was also named Richard Foster and her mother was named Ann.
CHILDREN of Roger and Ann Foster Williamson:
