The Blythe etc. families in Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and elsewhere. The emigrant, William Blythe/Bly/Blyth, who came from England to America in 1652 and his wife, Sarah, are believed to be the common ancestors of thousands of descendants in this book. William and his brother, John, arrived in the Yorke River, Va. on July 16, 1652. William later migrated from Yorke River to Isle of Wight Co., Va. He had at least two sons, William and Christopher. Another William Blythe (d. ca. 1749) identified as a landowner in Chowan and Bertie Counties, N.C. may have been a descendant or relative of Christopher. This William had three sons: William Blythe, enumerated in the 1790 Greenville, S.C. Census; James Blythe, found in 1800 Buncombe Co., N.C. (later Henderson Co.); and Thomas Blythe, enumerated in the 1790 Pendleton Co., S.C. Census. Majority of descendants in this book are through these three brothers. Includes some unattached branches of Blythe families. Family members and descendants live in North Carolina, Arkansas, Maryland, Alabama, Tennessee, Missouri, Texas, Oklahoma and elsewhere.
