|Biography*|| ||Only one reference to Dennis Culpeper has been found in early Virginia records. In 1664, or sometime earlier, he came to Virginia. In August 1664, Dennis was one of the 145 headrights of Mr. Richard Webley, Robert Davis (a ship captain), and Thomas Freshwater. A Robert Culpepper was also one of these headrights (Cavaliers and Pioneers, Vol. I, p. 430, Patent book 4, p. 106). |
Given the mortality rate of the time period, and the mortality rate in early Virginia, one might suspect that both this early Dennis, and Robert, might have died young, without descendants. Or else they returned to England. In any case, neither of these men seems to have left any futher records in Virginia or elsehwhere, which have yet been discovered. Both Dennis and Robert were most likely young men in their twenties in 1664.
