    Surry Co... Virginia, Albemarle Parish Register
    SANSENICK, James and Margarett [I have been told, German spelling for Sensing]
    LUCRETIA, 9/22/40, Wm Knight, Hannah Felts, Rebecca Harris
    JAMES, 3/4/42, John Bullock, Beng. Adams, Anne Bullock

    WM.., twin, 2/17/44, John Ellis, Edmund Pate, Anne Pate

    John and William were born in Virginia, but apparently did not survive. At least, no one seems to have found them later. That swamp they lived near doesn't sound very healthy to me. The Godparent's names have always been interesting. I have tried to trace some of them with very limited luck. John Ellis bought the Sensing land in March 45/46.

    Sensing is spelled several different ways in the index to these records. Godparents for other children include Joseph Sansenick (probably James), Mary (Margt?), and Eliza (can't explain her at all) I have seen photocopies of the original handwritten records; they are difficult to read.
