  • Name William V. Adkins 
    • (Adkins in this family also given as Atkins & Atkinson)
    Suffix Sr. 
    Born Abt 1690  Henrico Co, VA Find all individuals with events at this location 
    • I've found no documentation of parents for William V. Adkins (Atkins, Atkinson). Long-standing information of his parents as John Thomas Adkins, Jr. and Elizabeth Bromwell (presented on this site and many others for many years) have contradicting evidence suggesting these were not his parents.

      The William Atkins/Adkins born 28 March 1689, was born in Sandy, Bedfordshire, England and was buried there 9 September 1704, preceded by both his parents, who were also buried there (i.e.-not in Virginia).
