Allied Family Topic ED

 ED   John Edloe I (c.1660-)
Although I am not a descendant of John Edloe I, some of his descendants married into my family. Consequently, I have devoted Allied Family Topic ED to his family.
The Edloe family of Charles City County descended from Matthew Edloe who arrived on the Neptune in 1618, Matthew was living “att ye Colledg Land” in 1624/5,  and represented the “plantation at the College” in the House of Burgesses (1629). 
Matthew married Alice, widow of Luke Boyce, and probably his 2nd wife. A patent for Hannah Boyce, daughter and heir of Luke Boyce, joined “upon the land of Alice Edloe her mother.” 
“Widdowe” Alice Edloe held 350 acres at Harrow Attocks in Nov. 1635,  50 acres in Nov. 1636,  100 acres in July 1637,  and 150 acres there in Sept. 1638.  Alice was living in June 1642 when “the inhabitants of Mrs. Edlow’s divident lying above Sandy Poynt” were added to the parish of Wallingford.  A patent to Richard Perrin for 740 acres on the north side of the James River included 474 acres that had been granted Capt. Matthew Edloe 2 Oct. 1656.  A patent to John Burton for 700 acres in March 1665/6 mentioned “Alice Edlowe, Widdow” although the survey could have been made well before that date. 
Lt. Col. Matthew Edloe (-1668) “son and heir of Matthew Edlow… dec’d” patented 1,200 acres at Upper Chippokes Creek in July 1637.  He held 281 acres at Harrahattocks that he deeded to Thomas Taylor by 20 March 1662/3 and secured a patent to 850 acres partly in James City and partly in Charles City County 16 Feb. 1663/4.  Matthew Edloe II was a member of the House of Burgesses from James City (1659). 
Matthew’s married Tabitha Underwood, the mother of Tabitha Underwood who married Thomas Bowler of Rappahannock shortly after 1670, and they were the parents of Capt. John Edloe. 
A patent to William Drummond 19 Oct. 1674 mentioned land of John Edloe and the orphan [Tabitha] of Matthew Edloe.  Tabitha married 3rd John Summers who died by 15 April 1670 when the court granted her administration on his estate.  Mrs. Tabitha Underwood received probate of her mother’s estate 4 April 1671. 

John Edloe I, in his own words

The son and grandson of men named Matthew Edloe, I was born about 1660 in Charles City County.
My first wife was Rebecca Hubbard, daughter of Matthew Hubbard of York County and his wife, Sibella. We were the parents of John, Philip, and Matthew Edloe.
