Editor's Notes: About This 2010 Online Edition of Foote's Sketches of Virginia, Historical and Biographical, Second Series:

Whereas Foote's Sketches of Virginia: First Series traces the history of Virginia, and to a lesser extent, all of the colonies, as they move politically and religiously to a separation of church and state—freedom of religion and thought—the Second Series deals in more depth with the stories of some of the men, especially ministers, who settled Virginia and its bordering states.

As in Foote's Sketches of Virginia—Second Series, like his First Series, Foote does not use footnotes, but does give attribution to the author of his many quotations in the text.

If Foote had included a preface, which he did not, the main theme expressed there would have been that as a result of his publication of his first Sketches of Virginia he had been inundated with original source material from many persons. He decided, due to great demand, to include this material in the present volume. The same time frame is covered in this volume, but it is enriched by covering the story of many persons and events in greater depth than was possible in the first volume of the series.

Early printers used to gratuiously insert spaces before various forms of punctuation. I find this disconcerting and have removed these spaces.

Where references are made to Bible verses, even where the verse or verses are included, the attempt has been made to quote the exact verse or verses from the King James Version as it was the version in use at that period.

Some of the references cited are fairly long, so that the information does not appear immediately but must be scrolled down to find. Use your browser search feature or the page search feature {Control/F} of this site {type in the key word} to find the information quickly. If the reference is in google.com/books, you must click on plain text before the search feature will work.

When inserting an editor's comment, I included the comment between curly brackets, i. e. {comment}.

There is one name that has caused a deal of confusion: James Waddell or James Waddel. Apparently he used the names rather interchangeably. Part of his family adopted one or the other spelling. Wikipedia used to have a page called James Waddell; it is now called James Waddel. Hopefully this explanation will help clear up the confusion.

When annotating, in attempting to select the best information available, when I could not identify the person or thing, I included possible leads to the identity of the person or object. Hopefully this will assist genealogical research.
