The 1624/5 Muster List of Virginia is the first comprehensive census in British North America.  The list includes 1232 names, but does not include women and children.  The enumeration was taken between January 20th and February 7th 1624/5 [meaning 1624 by the calendar at the time and 1625 by our calendar, not that the year is uncertain].  There are numerous other references (books and web sites) providing the lists along with explanations and discussion.

WILLIAM GREENE aged 28 in the Hopewill 1623
ROBART LOCKE aged 18 in the Warwicke 1621


If Thomas was age 40 in 1625, then he was born in 1584 or 1585, not 1590.  If John was age 24 in 1625, then he was born in 1600 or 1601, not 1599.  Other sources may trump these ages as censuses are not alway accurate as to age.  As far as I can tell, these three individuals Capt. Thomas DAVIS, Thomas HEWEW, and John DAVIS are the only men from the voyage of the John and Francis in 1623 still alive and living in Virginia in 1625.
