BAPTISM: William Quiney baptized Jul 23 1593 parents Richard Quiney and Elizabeth Phillips at Stratford on Avon, Warwick, England.
A land patent for 1400 acs. to Thomas Steevens in Lancaster Co., Va, dated 2 Sept 1652, listed a "Tho. QUINEE and Elizabeth SUTTON" among 28 persons transported to Virginia [Patent Bk 3, p. 120].

SUTTON and Thomas QUINEE" on another land patent of 950 acres in Lancaster Co., dated 15 Dec 1653 to Charles GRYMES who also owned a 1000 acre tract across a small creek from Thomas STEEVENS. The second patent listed 19 pers. transported with five names repeated from the previous patent [Patent Bk. 3, p. 73]. Since some made it a practice to transport people back and forth between the colonies, i.e., Maryland and Virginia, tor the sole purpose of acquiring land (50 acres per head) it is possible that some could have made themselves available for a fee. Thomas STEVENS was even listed as being transported to Virginia on a patent issued to Wingfield WEBB and Richard PATE for 1141 acres on the north side of York River and the easternmost branch of Paropotank River (Lancaster Co.) dated 12 Dec 1650.
