John ROBARDS
Sarah HILL
Husband:  John ROBARDS
Birth:  1684, Wales
Death:  8 May 1755, Goochland Co., VA
Father said to be:  William ROBARDS
Mother:  Ms. __?__

Some say John's father's given name was Gwathford (name of an ancient Welsh hero).

Marriage:  1709
Migration:  1710, Wales to Virginia
Wife:  Sarah HILL
Birth:  1688, Wales
Death:  Sep 1756
Children born in Henrico [now Goochland] Co., VA:
1.  William ROBARDS, b. 1710 
2.  Susannah ROBARDS, b. 1712

Most sources do not agree that John had a daughter because she is not mentioned in John's will, but then, had she died without issue before 1754, she would not have been mentioned.  Of course, had she died without issue, the issue is, alas, not of much relevance genealogically.
