Notes for James Samford
James Samford, son of William Samford, was Christened 24 Dec 1626 at St Benet, Paul’s Wharf, City of London.2871 At the moment, there is no proof that this is the same James Sanford who appeared in Rappahannock Co VA in the mid-1600s. However, the chances seem good, expecially in that James Samford married a Mary Perrie in London in 1647, and we know that the Virginia James Samford was married to a Mary. On the other hand, Mary was one of the most common female names at the time.

For evidence that James Samford was father of Catherine Samford, see “Married Well and Often: Marriages of the Northern Neck of Virginia, 1649-1800.2282
