An organizer and killed in assumed indian fighting
Died 1676 in Bacons Rebellion, James City, Virginia, USA2
No doubt there are many other family lines in Our Family Tree. If your ancestry included abled body men in the mid1670's living in or between Richmond and Jamestown or east costal Virginia areas, it is possible they were involved in Bacon's Rebellion.
If ever there was a conspiracy theory or curse in the aftermath of Bacon's Rebellion it would include untimely deaths of Governor Berkeley, Nathaniel Bacon the Rebellion namesake, and the death of Col. John Washington. Washington the great grandfather of George Washington died September 16, 1677, a month after Rebellion. He managed to skirt both sides of the Rebellion and come out a winner for a short time.
Nicholas Bacon died less than a couple months after the Rebellion of body lice and bloody stools. Bacon was fighting his cousin Governor Berkeley, an appointment of King Charles II. Bacon had wealthy aristocracy links to England. But his cause of death October 26, 1676, reads like something you would find perpetuated in a dungeon.
King Charles II who had ties to Bacon and Berkley was not impressed by either and removed Berkley from the Governorship. Governor Berkeley returned to England to protest and died soon after.
