Evan RAGLAND - b. about 1656, St. Decumen's Parish, Somerset, England; d. May 30, 1717, St. Peter's Parish, New Kent Co., VA. Son of Thomas RAGLAND and Jane MORGAN. An unconfirmed report is that Evan RAGLAND was abducted from the village of Watchet, England and brought to America. Married about 1680.
Susanna PETTUS? - The identity of the wife of Evan RAGLAND Sr. is not supported by any known document, but is apparently founded on conjecture based on naming patterns of RAGLAND descendants. Various family histories name her as Susanna PETTUS, daughter of Stephen PETTUS of New Kent Co., VA. Any evidence identifying the wife of Evan RAGLAND Sr., or that Stephen PETTUS had a daughter named Susanna is desired.
Evan RAGLAND - b. about 1683, St. Peter's Parish, New Kent Co., VA; d. about 1739, St. Peter's Parish, New Kent Co., VA. Son of Evan RAGLAND and Susanna PETTUS. A planter, Evan served as a road gang supervisor. The name of his wife and mother of his children has not been located, but she was possibly Hannah (WALKER) RAGLAND, daughter of William WALKER and Elizabeth WARREN.
John RAGLAND - bap. Mar. 13, 1710/1, St. Peter's Parish, New Kent Co., VA; d. 1791, Henrico Co., VA. Son of Evan RAGLAND, Jr. Married about 1735 in New Kent Co., VA.
Judith RAYMOND - bap. Apr. 9, 1710, St. Peter's Parish, New Kent Co., VA. Daughter of James RAYMOND. Judith was likely the sister or half-sister of John RAYMOND (b. Sep. 10, 1717, St. Peter's Parish, New Kent Co., VA) and Susanna RAYMOND (b. Aug. 10, 1722, St. Peter's Parish, New Kent Co., VA), children of James RAYMOND and Unity. An unamed event for an unamed son of James RAYMOND was recorded on Oct. 8, 1717 - perhaps the baptism or, more likely, the infant death of son John.
