January 1699/1700

Patrick most likely arrived in America in January 1699/1700. Evidence suggests that he first stepped ashore in Westmoreland County, Virginia at a port on the Nomini River.

The date and place of Patrick’s arrival is based on his subsequent appearance in Westmoreland County court. REF: February 28, 1699/1700 a Ships arriving in Westmoreland County, Virginia were required by law to use a port located at the mouth of the Nomini River, which empties into the Potomac River in north central Westmoreland County. ( William Waller Hening. Hening’s Statutes At Large, Vol III, 1684 - 1710. Charlottsville, VA: University Press of Virginia, 1969. p. 60.)
