Sir Humphrey, born at Fivehead, Somerset, England, was the only one of his family to come to the New World, arriving with his wife Joanna in 1632. In the class system of the day, he was a gentleman who paid the passage from England to America for a good many settlers, also supplying them with land to live on. He was a justice of Elizabeth City County and served in the Virginia House of Burgess. He owned some 2000 acres in two counties. When he died, his son Thomas was only nine and had a guardian who re-entered 900 acres in his name.
