As the muster reveals, Cicely Jordan came to Virginia when she was only 10 and by 1624 was twice widowed and the mother of 3 young daughters. She would soon marry William Farrar in whose household she was then living for protection from Indians. We do not know who Cicely’s parents were, nor do we even know her surname. This topic is devoted to the family of my ancestress “Sisley Jordan.”
