Edward's father was Robert Pettway who immigrated with his wife Mary from England. In 1638, he was granted 200 acres on the Charles River.
The stepmother of Elizabeth's husband William Carter, Jr. (1625?-1655), Alice Croxon Carter, in Aug 1655, granted Edward 500 acres in Southwark Parish, Surry County, to be used by her second husband, Edward Pettway, only during Elizabeth's lifetime.
Surry County Virginia was chartered in 1652, formed from James City County, south of the James River (see present day map for location). Sussex County Virginia was formed in 1753 from Surry County. (see present day map for location)
Son William and future son-in-law Samuel Judkins Jr. , were among the 40 "less prominent Baconians" (supporters of Bacon's Rebellion) who took the King's pardon, Feb 6, 1676/7.
Elizabeth outlived husband Edward and her son-in-law Samuel Judkins Jr. (1657-1705), and was listed in Surry County with 650 acres of land, of which at least 200 acres were previously owned by members of the Judkins family.
