Here is information on Eleanor Veale's descendants for the first two generations.
Received from Rick 15 Nov 1998.

William Smoot named five children in his will. He had a previous wife named Anne. It is believed that his sons William and Thomas were children by his wife Anne, and the reason that William in his will stipulated they were to remain under the care of his wife Eleanor.  William Smoot had four children by his wife Eleanor Veale. Three daughters were named, and John was born posthoumously. That he was a son is shown by where Eleanor transferred land to him.

1.  Thomas Rigg
2.  William Veale/Veall Rigg
3.  Subella Rigg

The Virginia records show that Eleanor (Veale) Smoot secondly married William Trigg. In the will of Eleanor's third husband John Austin children are also listed as Trigg. In Eleanor's own will, and that of William Veale the children are listed as Rigg, but mention is made of a Jemima Trigg.
