  • Notes 
    • Cicely, whose maiden name is not known (according to Dorman), arrivedin Virginia near the end of August, 1611 aboard the Swan with SirThomas Gates.

      50V74-80

      Arrived in 1610 (or 11) on the Swan, age 10.

      "Cecily Reynolds was born about 1600 at Waymouth, Dorsetshire,England, daughter of Thomas Reynolds and Cecily Fitzpen. Cecilyarrived on August 1610 at Jamestown, VA on the ship "Swan" under theasupices of several near-relatives of Dorsetshire. She made her homewith Capt. William Pierce and his wife, Joan. In 1615, in the Piercehome in Jamestown, VA, she married her first husband, Thomas Bailey.Thomas was a young Governor's Guard and had come to Jamestown, VA in1612. Thomas died of malaria in 1619, leaving their only child,Temperance, born 1617, which married Richard Cocke about 1632. Cecily Reynolds Bailey married (2) Samuel Jordan (of Jordan's Journey) on 20 Sept 1620. The Jordons' famous neighbors were, to the south, John Rolfe, who had married the young Indian Pocahontas, daughter of ChiefPowhatan. After her death, Rolfe wed in 1619, Jane Pierce, daughter of Capt. William Pierce. John was killed by Indians in the 1622"Great Massacre." A neighbor to the north was Capt. John Woodlief whoin 1619 hosted the first Thanksgiving in America at his BerkeleyPlantation. Authentication to this as the first Thanksgiving - andnot the one in 1621 in Plymouth Plantation - is contained in a mandatefrom the London Company to Capt. Woodlief, saying "We ordain the dayof our ships' arrival at the place for plantation on the land ofVirginia (Berkeley Plantation) shall be yearly kept holy as a day ofThanksgiving to Almighty God." Presidents John F. Kennedy and LyndonB. Johnson officially recognized this event." - Article taken from"The Second Boat", Vol 12, Number 4, Sept-Oct 1991.

      DEATH: Ancestry.com says she d. 9 Dec 1660, Farrar's Island, Virginia

      Ancestry.com provides quite a lot of information about Cicely'sparents and their ancestors. No proofs, but lots of stuff.

      William Farrar was the third son of John Farrar, the Elder. Hearrived in Virginia in Aug 1618 aboard the Neptune with Lord De LaWarr. In 1623/4, Sisley Jordan was listed in a muster at his home atJordan's Journey. Shortly after her husband's death, she seeminglyhad agreed to marry Rev. Greville Pooley. Instead, she marriedWilliam Farrar and the good Rev. sued in the first breach of promisesuit in the colonies. The case was eventually remanded to England andback to Virginia, being resolved in Jan 1624/5.

      Connie Lapallo indicates that Jane Peirce was Cicely's sister. She hypothesizes that Cicely remained behind in England when her parents came to Virginia since she was only 9 years old. At the age of 10, she would be given the same rights as any adult in terms of rights to land as an Ancient Planter. Therefore, Cicely remained behind, staying with her family in Dorset, until they emigrated, arriving in 1610 / 1611.
