My interest in my JAMES ancestors started when I first contacted a cousin of my grandmothers — Glenn Warren.
Justina’s great grandmother, Elizabeth (Beverly) Kingston, had sailed to Martin’s Hundred on the James River from England in 1618 along with two hundred and twenty settlers to populate the settlement that would include a fort and the fledgling Wolstenholme Towne, which was part of Martin’s Hundred.See John and Lucy (my fifth great grandparents) were “pioneers” in the purest sense of the word. It reads: After much searching, I could find no published webpage that contained this particular James family history.John could easily have been acquainted with Daniel Boone; they lived in the same general area, and at the same time. In an attempt to help other James family researchers, I have published this information on this webpage.There is also an “upside down” family tree — a drawn outline of a tree with the earliest known ancestors of this family listed down to John James & wife Lucy Mosby (my 5th great grandparents) and lists some of their children and grandchildren.Jesse states on the pages that “the authenticated material used to put together this “upside down” family tree, was obtained through the research efforts of two of our relatives, namely his son Dwayne James, and a distant cousin Dorothy James Turner. Here is a good WOODSON website by a descendant that does a great job of giving the history of Jamestown… He met a 19 year old woman, Justina Thurston, and they were married.So far, no family researcher has found documented proof that Christopher is the son of John and Justina Thurston.
It seems that those records were destroyed in Richmond during the Civil War.

Anne and Edward had a son they named John Thruston, who was born in Martin’s Hundred on December 2, 1668.
It would seem that Edward and Anne traveled to England shortly after John’s birth, because Edward died in England in 1670. Edward and Anne’s son John Thruston (shown as Thruston and Thurston in various records) and his wife Elizabeth Cary Thruston married in England on September 23, 1690. His first wife was Elizabeth Frances Morris and they married in 1774.
Through contacts that he provided, I received a hand-written descendant chart with many, many James family names listed.
