and others to Colonial Dames XVII Century.  The maternal lineage
has been
traced  back into England; these lines include
the following names:  

Baker, Bromfield, Council, Cripps, Goodrich and Hardy.  
The John Hardy lineage has been  proven to lead back to
a baron of the
Magna Charta, also to several
Kings of England, France and Italy.


 

Calcote family history begins with Hercules Calcote

 (1640 - 1684) who by family tradition was said to have
 served Oliver Cromwell, Pretender to the throne of England.  
 By the 1670s, he was in Isle of Wight Co., Virginia.  
 He was a participant in Bacon's Rebellion, for which activity
 his property was confiscated following the
 rebellion.  Calcote Family Journey traces
 the various branches of the Calcote family
 descended from Hercules.  

Among the many connected names are Kennedy, Cade,
Garlington, Buckles, Case, Carsey, Hebert, Durr,
Overton, McBride, Riley and King.
