George Wyatt of Virginia (Conjecture)

George Wyatt was born in about 1605, probably in England. Note, Jamestown was not settled until 1610. And, George may have been of the family of Cpt. Thomas Wyatt who signed the Second Virginia Charter.

In about 1630 probably in England, George married Katherine Wyatt b. c. 1610 in England.

In about 1630, George and Katherine migrated to Virginia where their daughter, Joyce, was born. George and Katherine lived the remainder of their lives in Virginia.

Sometime before 1669 George died. And sometime thereafter, Katherine married Robert Flake b. c. 1621 in England. Robert Flake is last mentioned in a 1697 land transaction in Isle of Wight Co VA. As Katherine in not found afterward, conjecture leads to the belief that she died prior to 1697.
