302 If Col. Lygon could speak to us today, he might describe his life as follows.
I was baptized at Walsgrave-on-Sowe, Warwickshire, England, 11 January 1623/4. The grandson of a second son, I had little chance of inheriting titles, land, or fortune. King Charles I appointed my cousin William Berkeley the royal governor of Virginia and, although I was just 16, I decided to join him in the New World.
On 18 April 1644 Indians attacked our settlements, massacring about 300. I was then at the home of Sarah Woodson, wife of Dr. John Woodson whom the Indians killed. Using my 8-foot gun, I killed 3 Indians with the first shot, then 2 with the second. I fired a third time as they fled, killing 7 in all. This gun with Ligon still carved in the stock, is now at the Virginia Historical Society.
Around 1648-50 I married Mary Harris, the daughter of Capt. Thomas Harris, and we were the parents of 7 children.
Berkeley appointed me to represent him in many matters. Because colonial records for Henrico and Charles City counties were mostly destroyed, little evidence of my official acts remains.
In 1656 I was a member of the House of Burgesses at Jamestown, where I was a member of ye Committee for private Causes. Maj. William Harris, my brother-in-law, was the other Burgess representing Henrico County. I was a justice for Charles City County 1 August 1657, a militia colonel, and county surveyor from 1667 to my death in 1675.
Mary survived me 29 years. Able to fend for herself, she never remarried. Like me, she was handy with a gun, earning a bounty for killing 2 wolves in 1678. She once got into a dispute with our son William, and when she failed to evict him from her land, she left his heirs out of her will.
