Several of these people are listed in Patent Book No. 3, an outline of which is contained in a book "Cavaliers and Pioneers". Details given are:
November 27, 1652
John Teague, one of a party of ten persons transported by Edward Revell to 500 acres in Northampton County, Va., a neck of land parted by a branch of Pangotege Creek, from Land of Anthony Hoskins. Due by assignment from his father Randall Revell.

Several ideas have arisen as a result of findings in the Maryland State Archives.
Numerous passenger lists and land grants to ships' captains bringing immigrants both from England and Ireland have been checked and it appears that a 'grant' of 50 acres per head is the norm, which would suggest that Jones had brought his passengers across the Atlantic.
Maryland State Archives, Somerset County Court Judicial Record (Sept 30 1687-June 12 1689) :
n: est: Invts Caps agt Edward Teague to answer unto Thomas Roberts of a plea of Debt John Robinson Subpd on the part of y plte
Comments: This was in a section labelled: "Entries returnable the Second Tuesday in Janry: Annoq Dom: 1687 " (of course, this would be the old style calendar when the new year began in March. Therefore Janry 1687 was after Sept 1687).
Edward Teague does not appear on a list of signatories of the inhabitants of Somerset County to a loyalty oath to William & Mary dated 1689 (so could he have left Somerset County between 1687-9?), although Thomas Jones does.
Again from the Somerset County Court Archives (Maryland):
"The Same Cort: Commrs as afore The Deposicon of Roger Patrick aged 35 years or thereabouts taken in Cort ye 10th: novembr 1675.

Comments: It would appear that the John Teague who arrived in Virginia with Edward Revell (son of Randall) and the (elder?) John referred to above in Somerset Cty, MD are the same person. On the same day's Court records in Somerset County, Maryland, there is an entry of:
David Brown is the Securitie for ye appearance of Randall Revell next County Cort:Acknowledgeth himselfe to Stand indebted unto the Lord Propty:in the Sume of ten pounds of Lawfull money of EnglandIt has been suggested that Edward Teague was the son of this John Teague of Maryland, however the above extracts seem to disprove this.
As the 6 year old child has "no other relacon in this County", it would appear that her father, John Teague, was the John Teague Jr referred to in the first extract and that the male family line died out.
