Does any know who the siblings & parents are of Christopher Robertson
b. ca. 1620 somewhere in (Scotland ?) d. 1663 Chesterfield Co.,Va.,
wife Marie. Emigrated ca. 1642 to Bristol Parish, Va.
Did he have any other children other than Christopher Robertson II b.
ca. 1650 Henrico Co.,Va.?
CHECK HERE. I just found a ton of stuff on my Robertson bloodline. May have the answers you're or were looking for. If you're still looking 11 years later after this post lol.
Hope it helps. Mike Robertson
Your 11 year later reply did encourage me to look through my Robertson/Robinson files. Of course, there are two problems: the surname is very common; and the spelling varies between '-in-' and '-ert-'.
However, I do have a candidate in Cumberland. Close enough to Scotland, and the dialect is close enough too.
This is Christopher Robinson, baptised 5 Feb 1615 (?16) in Lamplugh, Cumberland. He was the son of Michael Robinson (described as Michael Robertson at his burial) and Ellen Lawrence. A number of siblings. The family seem to be connected with milling/fulling.
No doubt there are loads of Christophers, but one fact might support an emigration to Virginia. In 1642, John Lamplugh of Lamplugh Hall was raising a troop of infantry for the king. Christopher does appear in the Protestation, but not in any later record (as far as I'm currently aware).
