IGI Record: Richard Hyde born about 1717 Southward (sic) Parish, Surry Co, Virginia-Father: Richard Hyde; Mother: Mary Cotton
IGI Record: Mildred Avent born about 1746 Northampton County, North Carolina-Father: William Avent Mother: Sarah Massey
(If this is correct, Mildred Avent could not have been the biological mother of the children listed herein, as IGI records record their birth from about 1745-1759, although the records say the parents were "Richard Hyde IV and Mildred, they also say of Northampton County, North Carolina." I believe that the information used for these birth records was after the fact, as it seems the children were actually born in Brunswick County, Virginia based on Richard's location in the court/land records below.)
IGI Record: Mildred Avent married about 1767 Richard Hyde of Northampton County, North Carolina (If this is the same Richard Hyde, then the date is obviously wrong on this since Richard died in 1762)
