Christopher Averett/Everett is viable but the information cannot be confirmed.

(1) Christopher Averett/Everett b. 1590 in Cornwall Co., England d. 1625/1635 in Warwick, VA. He married Margery Stephens from b.1594 to d.1695. They were married at 1616 in Exeter, Devon, England.

(2) William Charles Everet b. 1614 in Cornwell Co., England and d. in Warwick Co., VA. He married Ann Symons in 1637 in England. She was b.1618.

    There two "debarked on the mouth of the James River, and unloaded onto a barge, the Paul Jones. Kinard Hawkins was its Captain. They landed in Jamestown and settled in Williamsburg, Virginia (Milton Everett." This was reported by Robert Lewis Everett that this couple arrived in 1640 and that the wife's maiden name was Symons.

    Symons received a 300 acre grant in the NW branch of the Nansemond River for the transportation of William Everett and Ann Symons Everett, and four other individuals. They believe that Ann was Symons daughter. They intermarried with the Symons and Everetts. Jane Stubbs Bailey has suggested that the Symons may have been too young to father Ann Symons and that she was possibly his sister.

The will of my daughter Winnifred Pullen shall have five hundred pounds of tobacco paid out of his estate. Each of my daughters, Mary, Sarah, Judee, and Lucretia have as much of my estate as paid for by my representative."
