Notes from:

In October 1633, Anthony Waddy arrived in Jamestown, Virginia, as one of 46 persons who were headrights of Edward Kingswell and Roger Wingate.
The group had been granted a charter to establish a colony in North
Carolina. Another vessell, which never arrived, was supposed to furnish
them transportation to North Carolina. As the attempt to colonize had
failed, it is apparent that the colonists were forced to try to do the best
they could.

On 6 January 1643, Anthony Waddy sold land and housing to Robert Holt,
which he at some time had purchased from Capt. John West. This
transaction took place in York County, Virginia.

On April 18, 1648 Anthony Waddy, along with the other 45
persons appeared on a patent to Mr. Lewis Burwell and Thomas Vause for
2,300 acres on the south side of the York River. Lewis Burwell was a descendent and heir of Roger Wingate.
