Ref.: Virginia Lee Hutcheson Davis, TIDEWATER VIRGINIA FAMILIES, 1989,
p. 234-7, p. 267-74.  This is very well documented recent research with
discussions of problem areas.  For several points, she refers to the 
work of Emma Dicken for more documentation and study.

Ref: Emma Dicken, TERRELL GENEALOGY, 1952.  Well documented.

Ref.: O. F. Brown, THE TYRELLS OF ENGLAND, 1982, Published by 
Phillimore & Co., LTD, Shopwyke Hall, Chichester, Sussex.  This is the
best documented book on the early Tyrell family that I have found.  
Mr. Brown says that there are gaps in the lines claimed by so many for
which no documentation to prove them is known to exist.  In 1966, he 
agreed to take on the job of finishing and publishing the Tyrell 
family research of the late Rev. William Tirrell. 

Mr. Brown said that this line is circumstantial and though possible, 
he emphasizes that he connot prove it.  The claimed line from George 
Tyrell of Thornton to Robert Tyrrell of Reading is not proven.  George
had a son named William for whom no further documentation has been 
found.  Many claim that this William was the father of Robert of 
Reading.  Possibly he was.  

Most of the following lines are provided as furnishing clues for 
further research.  I have abstracted most of the data on William who 
m. Susan Waters from the above sources.  That on Timothy is from others
which I have not verified.  Even undocumented information can provide 
clues for research.  Much research is still required.

      14 children named in his will but nothing further is known about
      them.  In order thay are:
      Jeremiah, Ruth, Millie, Solomon, Micajah, James, Simon, Moses, 
      Mary, Elizabeth, Keziah, Daniel, Richard and Aaron.
   38 James TERRELL d. bef 1768 Caroline Co., VA, m. Margaret, maybe a
      dau. of John WATKINS as they were awarded a portion of his 
      estate. She d. bef May 1772 when an administrator was appointed 
      for her estate.  No will has survived for them but they are 
      thought to have had these sons: William, Dudley and James.
   39 John TERRELL b. possibly in Hanover Co. and moved to Caroline 
      Co., d. 1780-89 Franklin Co., NC, m. Sarah _____ .  No children
      are known for them.
   39 John TERRELL had three children by Elizabeth HARRISON to whom he
      was not married.  He had to post bastardy bonds for their 
      children guarenteeing they would not become public wards.  
      Tiring of this, they fled to NC in 1738.  There is no info as to
      whether any of the children listed below were b. in Caroline Co.
      The three children that were born in Caroline were bound out to 
      other families for support.  Their names are not known because of
      the loss of Caroline records.  I have no knowledge of what  
      surnames these children used.
