When the Irvines came to America on "The George and Ann" in 1730, whales nearly overturned their ship. Mary Boyd "Molly" Irvine gave birth to her first child, Abraham, on the voyage. After a time in Pennsylvania, they founded the settlement at Hat Creek, VA, in what is now Campbell County, VA. Their tombstone reads, "...who in the year 1736 became the first residents of this community on a grant of land of many thousands of acres conveyed to them by the King of England."
