Some of the descendants of Edwin and Martha Conway were compiled by W. Conway Price, PhD (1906-1991), one of their descendants. Edwin Conway came to Virginia about 1640. According to Hayden (Virginia Genealogies, by Rev. Horace Edwin Hayden, M.A., 1891), he appears in Northumberland County records June 1642 as "Mr Edwyne Conaway, Clarke of this Com., in the County of Northampton." He married in England Martha ELTONHEAD, daughter of Richard ELTONHEAD of Lancashire, England, and his wife, Ann SUTTON of Huston Spencer. Martha ELTONHEAD was a descendant of a distinguished family. Hayden gives a chart showing her Eltonhead ancestry for eleven generations. Edwin Conway was the third Clerk of Northampton County. He appears frequently as Clerk in the record volumes from 1642 to 1645. He probably moved to Lancaster County in 1652 when his wife is thought to have arrived in Virginia. He was recipient of grants of 500 acres of land in Northampton County in 1644 and 1250 acres in Lancaster in 1652. A total of 1000 acres of the second grant resulted from two patents. The five pages of surname index reflect a diversity of names found in these lines, including Ball, Blackwell, Carter, Fitzhugh, Gordon, Lee, McCarty, Moncure, Robinson, Taliaferro, Wallace, and many more.

About the Author:

W. Conway Price was born in Blacksburg, Virginia and received his BS in Horticulture from VPI, now Virginia Tech, in 1927 and his PhD in Botany from Columbia University in 1932. After graduation, he was employed by Warren H. Manning, a landscape architect in Cambridge, MA; at Boyce Thompson Institute, Yonkers, NY, as an Assistant Plant Pathologist 1928-32; at the Rockefeller Institute Medical Research, Assistant 1932-38; Associate 1938-45; U of Pittsburgh, Associate Research Professor 1945-47; Resident Professor 1947-54; Director Plant Virus Laboratory 1949-54; U of FL Citrus Experiment Station, Lake Alfred, FL, Virologist 1954-60; U of FL Gainesville Professor 1960-66; Food and Agriculture Organization, UN, on assignment to the Philippines 1957 and 1966-74; and visiting Professor, Cornell U, Ithaca, NY, 1964. Conway is the author of more than 100 papers dealing with viruses of plants. From the 1930s on, he conducted genealogical research. In the 1970s and 80s, he generated several compilations of some of his ancestors and their descendants, including this one. Most of these compilations remained unpublished until after his death; however, in the early 1980s, he and his daughter, Anne, collaborated to produce Increase in Prices: Some Descendants of David and Agnes (Hoffman) Price of 17th Century Germany, which was published in 1985.
