Re: "Freetown" in Brunswick Co., VA in 1810

Hopefully you can respond... None of the family elders have referenced the area as such, however while researching my Roberts (Robards/Robeiro) line I noticed the pattern of FPC near the river.

Reportedly this set of Roberts arrived from Puerto Rico during the early 1800s. The Patillo family was also (reportedly) from the West Indies.

I am not certain if this applies to your James family, I recall a program on former Philly ABC news reporter Denise James having Virginia roots, that most likely tied to Jamaica.
