ancestor: My 7th great-grandmother, Frances Courtenay. ed John Norton and Sons, Merchants of London and Virginia. It used to be sold at the Library of Congress. Am interested to know the ancestry of the above named Frances Courtenay Tucker Nelson, and anything of interest.
comments: Frances Courtenay was born in England in 1682 but lived much of her life in Yorktown, Va. Her second husband was "Scotch" Tom Nelson, grandfather of the noted patriot. These people and others are covered in a ca. 1936 book by my grandmother, Frances Norton Mason, "John Norton and Sons, Merchants of London and Virginia," which used to be sold at the Library of Congress. Would like to know about her ancestry including any connections in the interesting online article by Brent Southgate. Am also interested in virtually any of her descendants. One such may have been a 1920s Arkansas author named Frances Courtenay Baylor whom I discovered online but about whom nothing is known except one book title.
