Pocomoke River #history #genealogy

The Pocomoke River 

Pocomoke RiverWilliam Starling emigrated to Virginia in 1635 from London. His transport departure was dated July 27 for the colony of Virginia onboard the Primrose. He was eighteen years old. He apparently settled in Northampton County on Pocomoke Creek where he made his last will and testament in 1698. His plantation consisted of 300 acres where he raised cattle and horses; also owned a boat or sloop which he bequeathed to his wife and son, Richard. The early settlers to Virginia had to import just about everything and interestingly enough, a brass furnace was included in his estate, as well as a number of guns.
