Blurb/Shorttext:
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Randolph family is a prominent Virginia political family, whose members contributed to the politics of Colonial Virginia and Virginia after it gained its statehood. They are descended from the Randolphs of Morton Moreton, Warwickshire, England. The first Randolph to come to America was Henry Randolph in 1643. His nephew, William Randolph later came to Virginia as an orphan in 1669. He made his home at Turkey Island along the James River. Because of their numerous progeny, William Randolph and his wife, Mary Isham Randolph, have been referred to as "the Adam and Eve of Virginia." The name Randolph is supposedly derived from the Anglo-Saxon word "Radwulf", meaning "fierce wolf". Randolph bloodlines can be traced to several noble characters from history, such as King John II of Jerusalem, Richard the Lion-Heart of England, Robert the Bruce of Scotland, and various other nobility.
