  • Notes 
    • !BIOGRAPHY: Henry came to Virigina around 1664 from Liverpool England at the age of 12. He was appointed constable of Accomac County in 1681.His occupation was always listed as planter. Tradition has it thatthe family is of Welsh origin, although it could be a Scottish or English name. One of the family coats of arms is "a prostrate foe, an exalted club' bearing the motto "We shall have peace." The lateThomas Oliver Toles of Jeff erson City, MO had a ring with signet inevidence of thi s. (Taken from clippings nearly 100 years old from Louisville-Courier-Journal 1890' s & reprinted in the KY Explorer 2Nov 1996) There are others such as one with a dove and in Latin "Give me PEace." Court records of Middlesex County have a deed of Henry Towles bearing a wax seal of "a lion passant." (from anarticle online by Carol France). The "lion passant" is therefore registered as the Virginia Heraldric arms of the family.
