      ANTHONY HARRISON, the emigrant ancestor of the HARRISONS of the first of the charts came to VIRGINIA sometime before 1653; perhaps many years prior to that date. He was accompanied or induced to come through the efforts of one SAMUEL BONNAM. They may have been kinsmen. MARGARET BONNAM, certainly a daughter or grand-daughter of SAMUEL BONNAM married WILLIAM RUST in 1696, and he was a brother of SAMUEL RUST, whose daughter Anne became the wife of GEORGE HARRISON, a grandson of ANTHONY and son of his son GEO. HARRISON. - From the Rust Family History.

      In a patent issued to CAPT. JOHN WILKINS, of Accomac County, to lands in Upper County of New Norfolk in May, 1637, on the East side of Nansemond river, he names as headrights, one ROWLAND RAYNE and THOMASIN, his wife. In Beverly Fleet's Abstracts of Accomac County, Virginia., p. 85, for the years 1639-40, there appears: "A true and perfect inventory of the estate of ROWLAND RAYNE, lately deceased in ACCOMAC". So Rowland Rayne died. But he evidently left a son ANDREW RAYNE. REV. JOHN ROZIER was the minister of HUNGAR'S PARISH in Accomac County for seven years beginning as the successor of the famous WILLIAM COTTON, who died in 1840. ROZIER left ACCOMAC sometime about 1656/7 and went to Westmoreland County. He was succeeded by a couple of ministers who served only a brief period, and then by a REV.THOMAS HIGHEY who had married the widow of JOHN WILKINS who had brought over Rowland Rayne and his wife some twenty years before. In Westmoreland County, Virginia in January, 1656, our REV. JOHN ROZIER patented 1050 acres of land and named among other headrights, ANDREW RAYNE, son, no doubt of THOMASINE, the widow of ROWLAND RAYNE. That she became the wife of ANDREW HARRISON, a son of ANTHONY, seems most reasonable, since JAMES HARRISON?? brother of ANDREW HARRISON had a son ANDREW HARRISON who afterwards married the widow of JOHN ROZIER, JR. Also in view of the two entries found on the old Gainford Parish Register of County Durham, England, showing many intermarriages between the HARRISON and RAYNE families, including RALPH HARRISON to AGNES RAYNE, Oct. 17, 1554, and ANTHONY HARRISON to MAUDLIN LOADMAN in 1647, nearly 100 years later, with the LOADMANS and HARRISONS in close association in early North Carolina near the end of the 17th century.
