      Notes for Alexander Fleming:
      The LDS Ancestral File [compiled by the Medieval Families Unit] statesthat John's father is (Capt.) Alexander FLEMING (b. abt 1612 inCumbarnauld, Lanarkshire, Scotland - d. 30 Dec 1668 - 13 Mar 1668/9 inRappahanock Co. VA), merchant, Burgess and Guild Brother of Glasgow,admitted 2 Apr 1646 [who could possibly be a son of "Sir Thomas" or thebrother of John, sixth Earl -- see below.] Archibald F. Bennett [in"Finding your Forefathers in America", Salt Lake City, Utah: BookcraftCompany, 1957, pp. 122-130] quotes some earlier family admissions fromVolume 56, The Scottish Record Society, Records of the Burgesses andGuild Brethren of Glasgow, 1573-1730: "On 10 April 1629 the followingwere admitted as Burgesses and Freeman, gratis: John FLEMING lord (Thiswould be the later 3rd Earl.); Alexander FLEMING his brother; WilliamFLEMING, also his brother; Alexander FLEMING, their uncle; PatrickFLEMING, in Balloch; Malcolm FLEMING, servitor to John, Earl of Wigtown;Robert FLEMING, servitor to John, Earl of Wigtown (son of Malcolm FLEMINGof Woodelie); John FLEMING, servitor to Earl of Wigtown."

      Captain Alexander FLEMING married to Elsbeth (or Elizabeth) ANDERSON (b.abt. 1614 of Glasgow, Scotland - 6 Oct 1656 - 5 Jul 1658 in RappahannockCo. VA), a daughter of William ANDERSON, probably the Marion BELL andWilliam ANDERSON (b. 1588), who registered a testament in Glasgow 10 Nov1623. After his wife's death, he married secondly (1659) Ursula, widow ofJohn BROWN of Accomac Co., and thirdly Joyce (Jones) HOSKINS (b. 1613),the rich and attractive widow of Anthony HOSKINS of Accomac Co. and thedaughter of Capt. William JONES. On 4 Sep 1667, Capt. Alexander bought560 acres in the freshes of Rappahannock Co. He left his estate"Westphalia" to his wife Joyce FLEMING, Executrix, and other propertiesto his daughters Alexia and Elizabeth. The title "Captain" is clearly aVA one, probably related to the militia, but perhaps like KY Col., amatter of recognition, property and deference.
      [Brøderbund WFT Vol. 2, Ed. 1, Tree #2853, Date of Import: Jul 28, 1997]

      Captain Alexander(1)Fleming was born about 1612, Larnock, Scotland. He issaid to come to Virginia 1649-1650. Alexander Fleming patented 5790 acresbetween 1658-1667 on both sides of the Rappahannock River. He married,first in Scotland about 1631, Elizabeth (Elspet) Anderson, daughter ofWilliam Anderson. "Alexander Fleming died between 30, December, 1668 and13 March, 1668-9 in Rappahannock County, Virginia." Captain Alexander W(1) Fleming was the second son of John Fleming (second Earl of WigtowninScotland, Seventh Lord Fleming) and Lady Margaret Livingston (daughter ofAlexander Livingston) ( The Scots Peerage, Edited by Sir James BalfourPaul, Vol 8 p548-550 published by David Douglas, Edinburgh, Scotland;Finding Your Forefathers in America, A.F.Bennett 1957 Chapter 11, pp123,126,128.)
