Kelly, about the only info I gleaned of any interest on Vickers' in Salt Lake was the following:
From Hakluyt's "Voyages, Navigations" are these passages - Page 348, "the second colonie" "The names of men, women and children which safely arrived in Virginia, and remained to inhabit there, 1587 anno regni Reginae Elizabeth 29. Men - Ambrose Vickers, Women - Elizabeth Vickers, Children - Ambrose Vickers. "
The book from which this passage is taken is the 1810 edition of Hakluyt which is in

Hi Kelly, Thanks for your prompt reply. I looked all through The Cradle of The
Republic, but found that I was mistaken in my belief that John Vickers' name was contained
within. Perhaps I saw the reference to this on your "Ralph Vickers" page and
combined the two in my head. Nonetheless, the book does detail this "massacre",
which happened March 22, 1622. Out of a population of 1,258 settlers in
This is not to say that no Vickers survived, for the book limits its scope to

From Kelly to Coppley:
What do you make of the idea that the first John's wife and children dropped out of the picture when John was killed in 1622. Are the two children really belonging to the second John in 1635? What do you make of it?
Response from Coppley:
I do not think so because John III was married 1644 James city (John II was killed out
side James City....which indicates they stayed in James City after John II was killed) and

Annette, the only doc of John Vickers/Vicars in Jamestowne
is the list of the "quick and the dead " ordered by King James 1624 which list
John Vickers as having died 1623 in the Indian massacre on the plantation out side James
City...later his son shows up in the Isle of Wright. Have you seen any Vickers in your
research? His wife and children (john and > ralph?) one and
two years old apparently survived thank you.
Haven't noticed any Vickers, but then, I haven't been looking! Best I can do is take a look at the reference works and see what's there. Let you know after next Saturday. OK? Annette.
Mr. Vickers, Earl Swem's "Virginia Historical
Index" contains several references, although with many spellings, for the name
"Vickers, Vicars, Vicaris, etc," but only the
following for "John Vickers:" As you already knew, John Vickers name appears on
the well-known "List of the Livinge & Dead in
Virginia February 16, 1623" as having been killed by Indians at or near James City.
This list was compiled on the above date because of the Indian Massacre of 1622 - which
massacre occurred in various places sporadically. John Vickers probably died in 1622. I
did not find a Vickers wife or children on the lists of those alive in

You may be a missing link. My many great uncle John MOTT d. 1677--a bachelor--left part of his estate to his nephew John VICKERS. John Mott was the brother of George MOTT d. 1674 Rappahannock/Richmond Co., VA.
George had four daughters, none of which married a VICKERS. There may have been a
sister of the two. Does MOTT run in your VICKERS family? George was an ancestor of
Alexander DONIPHAN and Harry S. TRUMAN.
