!REFERENCE:"HISTORICAL SOUTHERN FAMILIES" Vol 3, page 209 by William Bennett Boddie. "SCARBOROUGH of SURRY, VIRGINIA, and NORTH CAROLINA
William Scarborough, first of his name in Surry, was the ancestor of
this family. He was probably kin to the famous family of Scarboroughs
of the Eastern Shore of Virginia.

Mrs. Jewel Davis Scarborough, in her excellent book entitled "Southern
Kith and Kin" states that the Scarboroughs of the Eastern Shore are
descended from the Scarboroughs of North Walsham, County Norfolk,
England, whose arms are: "Or, a chevron between three towers gules,
triple towered gules." (See also Harleian Society, Vol. 8, p. 226).
Mr. Jennings C. Wise in his "Ye Kingdom of Accomac" says that William
Scarborough of Surry was a cousin of Col. Charles Scarborough, son of
Col. Edmond Sscarborough of the Eastern Shore.

William Scarborough's name first appears in the Surry Records on Dec.
10, 1656, when he testified in the case of Potter versus Delke(BK 1-124)
On June 20 1664, John Rawlings and Wm. Scarborough surveyed and assigned
Mr. Humphrey Allen 12 headrights for a certain patent of land(Id, -124).
He was appointed administrator of the estate of Ann Holdsworth, June 18,
1675(BK. 2-52) the reason for the appointment was that Wm. Scarborough
had married Mrs. Amy Holdsworth, the mother of Ann and widow of Walter
Holdsworth.

Ann Holdsworth made her will on March 6, 1672/73; probated May 4, 1675.
She desired to be buried at the discretion of her father(Step-father)
Wm. Scarboro and made bequests to her brother, Walter Holdsworth, and
sister Mary Holdsworth of cows in the possession of Mr. Tatum. (BK. 2,
p. 81).

William Scarborough was one of Bacon's active adherents in his
Rebellion. On Jan. 29, 1676/67 the Royal Commissioners, who were
appointed by KING CHARLES to investigate the grievances which led to the
Rebellion, arrived in Virginia. Berkeley was still in power, but
stubbornly refused to have the Commissioners in his mansion at Green
Springs.

The Commissioners brought a pardon for the rebels from the King, but the
Governor carried on his series of trials and executions. On March 16,
1676/7, William Scarborough was summarily convicted of treason and
hanged. (M.C.G.C., pp. 459-60). His widow Amy married thirdly Thomas
Tyus. (O.B. 1671-90, p. 194). The KING CHARLES II said that Governor
Berkeley "killed more men in that naked country than I did for the
murder of my father.";
