  • Notes  Name:
    • Nothing is known of the ancestry of Nicolas Martiau's wife, who was the widow Jane Berkeley at the time of her marriage to him. Her first husband, Lieut. Edward Berkeley, was a member of the Berkeley family which founded the first iron works in the colony at Falling Creek; and he was living at the Muster of 1624 (Feb. 16, 1623/4)(Hotten, P.184); but no record of his marriage exists, and there is no other evidence of Jane Martiau's maiden name or origin. She came to Virginia in the ship "Seaflower" ("Seafloure"), as shown by the Muster of 1624, arriving in February 1621/2. It has been said that she may have been one of the "Doves" who were imported to Virginia to become wives to the colonists; but a torough survey of the facts shows this to have been an impossibility (Virginia Magazine of History and Biography, Vol. 42, P. 145). [3]

    Died:
    • Nicolas Martiau died in 1657 at Yorktown, where his wife Jane had died at least seventeen years earlier. [1]
