      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.

      for explanation of lineage

      On November 20, 1672, "Mrs. Katherine Taliaferro" was granted 600 acres of land for the transportation of 8 negroes and 4 English servants "which rights I doe hereby assigne over to my son Robert Taliaferro." (Rappahannock County records D.B. 5, p. 99.) Since Katherine Taliaferro received this patent it would seem that she was a widow and therefore Robert Taliaferro, Sr, had died before this date. The Rev. Charles Grymes died 1662/3 and left a will which was offered for probate by his widow, Katherine Grymes, who on August 26, 1678, as his executrix, was sued by Thomas Godlington of London. (See Tyler's Quarte rly, vol V, p. 260.)
