      "George Reade, a gent. of Hampshire, brought his fortunes into Virginia in the year 1640 and was immediately made one of His Majesty's Council. He intermarried with Mrs. Marhes, one of the daughters of Capt. Marhes a French gentleman, who was the proprietor of all the property about York. Thomas Reade, (3d) son of George Reade and Mrs. Marhes, married Lucy Gwin, the daughter of Edward Gwin and Lucy Bernard a regular Doctor of Physick, who was son to Rev'd John Gwin Rector of Abingdon Parish many years and who came to Virginia in Cromwell's time, he being a very stiff Churchman. Lucy Bernard was daughter of William Bernard Esq., one of his Majesty's Council of Virginia, and was the son of the Knight of Huntingdon; and a daughter of Col. Hickerson of Dublin, who was the relict of Lewis Burwell, Esq. The said Thomas Reade and Lucy his wife had eleven children, one of whom (Mildred) married Major Philip Rootes of King and Queen and had many children, and whose second son was named Thomas Reade Rootes, and was the father of Thomas Reade Rootes (of White Marsh) who writes this part of his genealogy this 15th of March, 1816.
