Hudson History and Genealogy,
The Amelia Line.
The Amelia Line is descended from Richard Hudson III, who was born
about 1660 in Henrico County, Virginia and is named for the area
where he lived, which became Amelia County, Virginia.
Our earliest Hudsons originated in England. The first to the Virginia
Plantation is attributed to one Richard Hudson, born 1605 in Tamworth,
Staffordshire, England. When he was 30 years old he departed London
for Virginia aboard the ship, Safety, on August 10, 1635. He settled in Northampton County, Virginia.
