Descendants of Peter Francisco and his wife Susannah Anderson through their daughter Polly (Mary) Francisco Allen and her husband, Richmond Allen:

and additionally, as a supplement carried at the end of this chart, a partial line of Peter and Susannah’s son, James Anderson Francisco, and his wife Judith Woodson Michaux, as requested and supplied by their descendant William Corum.

Introductory comments:

Polly Francisco Allen and her entire line of descendants were for some unknown reason omitted from the genealogical chart presented by Nannie Francisco Porter and Catherine Fauntleroy Albertson in their pioneering biography, The Romantic Record of Peter Francisco (Staunton, VA: McClure Printers, Inc., 1929). This Porter-Albertson chart has been reproduced many times in numerous other publications (e.g., Peter Francisco, the Portuguese Patriot, by W.A. Moon, which is a more or less standard reference work) without change or emendation, thereby perpetuating the exclusion of several hundred deserving descendants from a record of their heritage.

The present chart is as accurate, as of January 2011, as the members of the Society of the Descendants of Peter Francisco have been able to make it. It has been thoroughly reviewed and corrected by descendants unto the eleventh generation.

I wish to express my deepest gratitude to my wife, Alla, for her work in creating this document. She has done all of the formatting and typing, a job of many hundreds of hours, in the decade that this chart has been in preparation. I also wish to thank Anne Craig Wilson for her support and encouragement of the project.

The Society of the Descendants of Peter Francisco solicits comments, corrections, and/or changes to any of the information contained herein. Communications concerning such items can be done here.

Descendants of Peter Francisco and his second wife, Catherine Fauntleroy Brooke.

These reports are accurate to the best of my knowledge, as of July 1, 2015. A BIG ”Thank You” goes to all of Peter and Catherine’s descendants who contributed their family information to make these genealogical reports possible!

I have tried to be as inclusive and careful as possible, but there is a large amount of information in these reports. It is easy to make mistakes. Please look for them, and let us know when you find them. There are still some blanks to be filled in, too. Help us add to and correct these reports, if you can. I will gladly revise them. To reduce the possibility of identity theft, no dates of birth are included for descendants who are still living. Communications concerning additions and corrections can be done here.

Due to the wonders of the Internet, I have been able to talk with and email relatives I did not previously know we had. Then I was privileged to virtually gather our family together in these reports. What an awesome experience! However, this is an ongoing project. There are more family members out there just waiting to be “found” and new ones being born. Please help us add them to the family tree!

You can view Peter’s and Catherine’s descendants in the reports below this link. The title of each link is the name of each of their children who have descendants. Please note their fourth child, Dr. Peter Johnson Francisco, did not marry, and, to the best of my knowledge, he did not have any descendants. He is not included in this list of links.

I hope you will enjoy reading these reports! This is OUR family.
