      Note:
      At the time of his death, Robert Taliaferro held estates in both Gloucester and Essex Counties in Virginia. In Gloucester he owned the original home plantation of 800 acres In the growing new county of Essex, America's frontier at the time of his death in 1671, he owned his half of the Taliaferro-Smith patent, 3,150 acres, 1500 acres he purchased from Richard WHITE, 600 acres inherited in right of his wife on Mount Creek, and another 600 acres she inherited from her mother on Peumensend's Creek, also in Essex County. All but the original Gloucester land now lies within Caroline County VA. The GRIMES land on Peumensend's Creek became the cradle of many Taliaferro babies.

      Robert Taliaferro married Katherine Grimes, the step-daughter of Charles
      Grimes. He was Rector of a Church of England parish on the south side of the
      York river in his early years, and later moved to the parish in present
      Middlesex County VA. Robert Taliaferro's home was located in Petsworth
      Parish in Gloucester Co, yet one searches in vain for references to the early
      Taliaferro family in the well preserved and published records of this parish.
      The Taliaferros lived fairly near the parish where Katherine Grimes
      Taliaferro's father ministered, so they probably carried out the baptisms of
      their children and fulfilled their other religious obligations at his church
      in Middlesex.
