I have the following information and I was wondering if it had any connection with what you posted already. I am trying to see if there is any connection between (my relative) Jebez Jervis b 1725 to Admiral John Jervis, Earl of St. Vincent or at least if I could find the family member who crossed over from England (or from France) to the USA.
Following is the family line as far as we have established it today. Jabez Jervis, Sr. was a captain in the North Carolina militia during the Revolutionary War. He commanded a Light Horse troop and assigned to keep survellance over the Moravians living in Surry County, North Carolina, considered loyalists and a potential fifth column.
Jabez Jervis, Sr. was born circa 1727 in New York or New Jersey; he died in Surry County, North Carolina. He had a son,
Jabez Jervis, Jr. who was born in Surry County, North Carolina circa 1765.
He migrated from Surry County across the Blue Ridge Mountains in 1796 to Little Ivy area of Buncombe County, North Carolina (now Mars Hill, Madison County, North Carolina). He died in Yancy County (?) North Carolina circa 1815. He had a son,
Eliphalet Jervis who was born in Buncombe County, North Carolina April 24, 1798; he died in Madison County, North Carolina August 27, 1881. He had a son,
