Re: Origin of some N.C. and Va. Indian tribes

Hello;I have as many questions as answers. I took a DNA test ( Ancestry.com ) IT reveled on the paternal side of Bullock was :Spanish, French, and Dutch. During the Crusades;vs the Turks. There were naval battles in which people were captured. I'm told that there were prisoner swaps, and people dropped off in different places in the new world. John Smith of Pocohantas fame was himself as slave (pow ) on a turkish galley. SEt free he again sails for England.The croate settlement that is often refered to is not the only time when people were left behind: Sir Francis Drake ( a Devonshire Man, like Sir Walter Raighlee, and the Bullocks' at that time).Left about two hundred Blacks he had taken from Belize ( Spanish ) and attacked St. Augustine. About mid 1500's. Perhaps because of the headright system, which granted 50 acres of land to anyone who transported a person to the new world. Hugh Bullock had thousands of acres in Virginia. Some of these people ( relitives ) perhaps married Blacks or Indians. THis is very confusing I know, I have volumes of research, but not the clearest picture as of yet. Look under Henrico Co, and early Jamestown. A William Tobacco Trader Bullock was there about 1611.Hugh Bullock seemed to have been involeved with all the aspects of the Golden Triangle. Sugar cane plantaions, Bermuda, he owned ships. And had been Captain aboard his ship the HMS Endevour.AS a captain ,or even a crewman was entitled to transport people at no charge. Also at some point some Bullocks became Quakers; They had a habit of freeing and educating slaves. See A very mysteriuos man Dr. Stephan Bullock, who it seems married the daughter of the Governor of Bermuda (Spanish )Richard Bullock turns up in Rhode Island ( Rum trade ?)These people seemed to travel together. Bullocks, Bailey's, Crawford's, Thompson's and Scotts. Some of these lines marry into Indian tribes and move further into the frontier. See Hawkins Bullock (scout in the American Revolution )At this time I do not have my father's maternal line info. I am sure that we are related in some way. I would like very much to find out more. I am glad to share what I havwe learned.I hope that we can stay in touch, I would love to talk with you. Best wishes James
