  • Notes 
    • Athelia Keziah likely not a daughter, but not sure where else to put her. One unattributed source states she was dau. of John Avent, so here she is. Mentioned in will of Col. Thomas Avent, so must be somehow related. Keziah (spelled various ways) was not an uncommon surname in Northampton & Halifax counties, NC, so possibly she was adopted.

      The other 8 children named here are listed in "Sussex Co., VA, Guardian Accts (1754-), pp 26-27 as orphans of John Avent & gives their guardians.

      Birthdates of children come from Albemarle Parish records.

      Wife Margaret married Lewis Solomon after death of John Avent.
