Some lists begin with a ? Petty born at St. Peters at Moncroft, Norfolk, England (whatever that means) at an unknown date
The next generation sometimes listed is Thomas Petty I, who supposedly was born in 1608 at Norwich, England, was married to Katherine Morris, and died in 1663 or 1664 at Rappahannock County, Virginia. That might be true, but does not make sense when joined with the next entry, which makes Thomas II born about the same time Thomas I died. That's possible, but it isn't likely that Thomas I fathered his first son at the age of 56!
From here on, we will hope that the record is correct. Keep in mind that it is a patchwork and not a true genealogical work.
