Notes for GILES WEBB:
Giles came to America as a headright of Thomas Babe, along with Lawrence Peters, Wm Poyter, Ann Barnes, Richard Barnes, & Tobias Stephens on 10/6/1646. (Refer to Webb Families of the Virginias by Ronald R Turner).
The Virginia Company ordained that any person who paid his own way to Virginia should be assigned 50 acres of land 'for his ouw personal adventure', and if he transported 'at his own cost' one or more persons he should, for each person whose passage he paid be awarded 50 acres of land.

Giles Webb's name comes up among many land transactions from 1652-1697. Giles owned 681 acres, Lancaster County VA 2/5/1653. He resided at Chuckatuck, on the boundary of Isle of Wright & Nansemond Counties. He was a burgess from Nansemond Co 1658, 1659, 1660.
