"Genealogy of the Venable Family, as Prepared by Nathaniel Venable, of Prince Edward County, Va., Dated December 25, 1790."  Pages 308-311 in Genealogies of Virginia Families: from the William and Mary College Quarterly Historical Magazine.  Genealogical Publ. Co., Baltimore, MD (Broderbund CD-186).  No parents are given for our subject.

2.  Lyon Gardiner Tyler, ed.  1915.  Encyclopedia of Virginia Biography.  5 vols.  Lewis Historical Publ. Co., NY (online at Ancestry.com).  In Volume IV:
p. 347 ...Abraham Venable, who emigrated from England to Virginia about 1685 where he married about 1700 Elizabeth, daughter of Hugh Lewis, of James City county, and widow of Henry Nicks...

3.  Elizabeth Marshall Venable.  c1925.  Venables of Virginia: an Account of the Ancestors and Descendants of Samuel Woodson Venable of "Springfield" and of His Brother, William Lewis Venable of "Haymarket," both of Prince Edward County, Virginia.  Printed by J.J. Little & Ives, NY (online at HeritageQuest at Genealogy.com):  The author makes some silly assertions that are patently untrue, such as a Venable having accompanied William the Conqueror in 1066 no Venable is proven to have accompanied the Conqueror (see this source) so I would document whatever she writes before accepting it, especially with regard to the early generations.  There's a lot of mythology here. 

4.  WorldConnect / Ancestry World Trees (online at RootsWeb.com/Ancestry.com).  Several files give "Thomas VENABLES, Lord/Baron of Kenderton/Kinderton," as our subject's father, but see the next Source.

5.  Francis L. Leeson.  1986.  A Directory of British Peerages: from the Earliest Times to the Present Day.  Genealogical Publ. Co., Baltimore, MD.  I find no such peerage as Lord or Baron of Kenderton or Kinderton and if there ever was such a title, it should be listed here.  There was a title of "Baron Vernon" extended to someone surnamed "Vernon-Venables" in 1762, but "of Kinderton" was not part of the title.  However, this information doesn't jibe with other sources which show a George Venables-Vernon

6.  June Kinard, comp.  2000.  Early Immigrants to Virginia from the 1500s and 1600s.  The Researchers, Indianapolis, IN (online at Ancestry.com):
VENABLE, ABRAHAM, from England to New Kent Co. about 1685.  Married (1) Sarah ___ (died 1687) (2) Elizabeth Lewis Hicks, daughter of Hugh Lewis.
