John Billups, in his own words
If he could speak to us today, John Billups might describe his life as follows.

I was born about 1660 in that part of Gloucester County that is today Mathews County. I could tell you more about my family but for the loss of record in both counties. The Kingston Parish Register does reveal that I was a member of the vestry, the committee that managed the affairs of the parish, in 1682, 1684, 1687 and 1690-5.
I inherited part of my fatherís 1,200 acres and the tradition is that I lived at the family home on Billups Creek, part of which is still standing. I added 38 acres in Kingston Parish, Gloucester County, 25 October 1695.†
The name of my first wife is unknown, but we apparently had no children. I married second Mary Glascock 6 June 1695.
I died in 1709 leaving two sons, Joseph and Robert Billups. Joseph and his sons went to Southside Virginia, but I do not know what happened to Robert.

We are placing Joseph as a son of Johnís 2nd wife as his lifeís chronology suggests he was born after 1795.
