What is currently known about John Wyatt, the son of Reverend Hawte Wyatt by his 3rd wife, Anne Cox/Cocke? Many sources say he went to America as a headwright of Colonel Thomas Pettus, but it is uncertain if this is the son of the Reverend. There is a will in Boxley, Kent in 1656 for a John Wyatt, brother of George who died in England, but this doesn't seem to be the son of the Reverend, either. Does anyone else know anything about this son of the Reverend?
https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Wyatt-158 says: "John Wyatt , the son of Rev. Haute Wyatt and his 2nd wife Anne Cox, was cared for by his grandmother Lady Jane Finch Wyatt, as his mother had died in 1631. He came to America as a young man and was claimed as a headright by Colonel Thomas Pettus in 1652. Pettus received 1,000 acres in Westmoreland County,Virginia, in a patent dated Feb. 10, 1652, for transporting 20 persons, including John Wyatt. See Nell Marion Nugent, Cavaliers and Pioneers, Vol. 1, p. 389. John Wyatt was twice married. Around 1650 he married Mary Cocke and had sons Edmund and William. After Mary's death John married Jane Osborne and had by her a son John and daughter Anne. John Wyatt was mentioned in the will of his cousin Eleanor Wyatt, (1624-1649), the only child of Haute Wyatt's brother Henry. She died in 1649 in England and left a bequest of 40 pounds to John and 50 pounds to his sister Anne.
See "Virginia Gleanings in England," Virginia Historical Magazine 31 (1923), 239.
Anne later came to Virginia and was among the headrights claimed by John Ashley in 1653. There is a family tradition that John Wyatt, known as Capt. John Wyatt, was a sea captain and ran a line of merchant ships between England and Barbados. "Possibly Rev. Haute's son John was the Capt. John Wyatt, of York, 1646-65, at whose house in 1655 Maj. William Wyatt and others witnessed 'an acknowledgment by the protector of the young king of the Chicksoyacks to Edward Wyatt.'" See P. Stacy, "Major William Wyatt of St. Stephen's," Tyler's Quarterly Magazine 26 (October 1944), 119.
