    ... The following Virginia Colonial land abstract of a quitclaim dated 25 February 1658/9, shows that George Pace married Sara Maycocke, whose father, the Rev. Samuel Maycock, was killed in the 1622 attack.[33] The quitclaim also shows that George and Sarah Pace had a son named Richard:

    Know all men by these presents, and witnesse that I Richd Pace sonne and heire apparent of mr Geo Pace of the Com of Charles Citty att Mount March in Virginia, and sonn and heire as the first issue by my mother Mrs. Sara Macocke wife unto my aforesd father (being both dec'd) Do hereby by these presents...allow of the sale of eight or nine hundred acres of land being neere unto Pierces hundred, als Flowrday Hundred, sold by my dec'd. father Mr. George Pace unto Mr. Thomas Drew as per bill of sale bearing date the 12th of October Ao 1650...

    This second Richard Pace had a wife named Mary, as shown by a Charles City, Virginia court record dated 13 March 1661/2, in which Richard Pace sells land "with consent of my wife, Mary Pace".[34] He died by 14 February 1677/78, when administration was granted to Mary Pace[35] on the estate of "Richard Pace, her deceased husband". No will survives. On the basis of a family letter (said to have been written in 1791), John Frederick Dorman, editor of Adventurers of Purse and Person, attributes eight children to Richard Pace of Charles City County, and gives information on descendants of three of the sons.[36] ...

    [33] The 1623/4 Muster shows Sarah Maycocke, age 2, "borne in Virginia", living in the household of Capt. Roger Smith. The Minutes of the Court and General Council show that at a court held on May 8, 1626, Yt is ordered y' Sara Maycock for fower servants brought over in the Abigaill 1622 vppon the Accompt of Mr Samuell Maycock shall have two hundred acres of lande to be taken vpp by her in any place not formerly Taken vpp."
