      (3) Genealogies of Virginia Families from the William and Mary College Quarterly Historical Magazine, Vol. III, Baltimore, MD: Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc., 1982, pp. 3, 6:

      HEALE FAMILY . . .

      This family seems to begin in Virginia with . . . NICHOLAS HAILE, of York County, planter, who, in 1654, gave a power of attorney to Dr. Thomas Roots in Lancaster County. He is succeeded in the record by . . . George Heale, who executed a power of attorney, November 8, 1677, and whose wife is named as Ellen in 1682. . . .

      In the very common habit of our ancestors of spelling one way and pronouncing another, the name Heale appears to have been pronounced Hale in colonial times. . . .

      (4) Railey, William Edward, History of Woodford County [KY], Frankfort, KY: Roberts Printing Co., 1928, p. 223:

      The first of the Heale family known in America was Nicholas, who was a planter in York County, Va., in 1654. He was born in England.

      (5) Thousands of Virginia's early settlers arrived in the colony as a result of the headright system. Under this system, anyone who paid for his transportation (or someone else's transportation) to Virginia was entitled to receive 50 acres of land for each immigrant transported to Virginia at his expense. In order to receive a land patent under the headright system, an individual would petition the county court for certification of these rights. The certificate was then recorded in the county court minute books. The petition for a certificate was usually filed soon after the arrival of the immigrants, while proofs of the claim where fresh. The documents certifying these rights, formally termed "transportation rights," but commonly called "headrights," were used as paper currency and freely sold, bartered or assigned to others at or near the time of certification. For that reason they could have remained in circulation for a considerable time before ultimately being "tendered" for land. Before 1705, these rights could have been claimed for multiple arrivals of the same person.
