Notes for RICHARD WHITEHEAD:
 
From Broderbunds Genealogies of Virginia Families V, R-Z, The Whitehead Family in Southern Virginia:
     "Richard Whitehead, in the period 1673-99, received large grants of land in Gloucester, New Kent, King and Queen, and Rappahannock Counties. One of his land grants was for 2,000 acres in consideration of having brought 400 persons into the colony.  There is frequent record of this Richard.  He was a prominent man in intimate touch with influential people in England, and from the seals on a number of deeds which are still extant, it is evident that he was a member of the prominent Whitehead family of "Uplands Hall", Lancashire, England.  His son Philip was a member of the House of Burgesses in 1723-4.  Owing to the destruction of the records in Gloucester and King William Counties, there is apparently no certain record either as to this Richard's immediate ancestors nor to his descendants beyond Philip."
