John O'Rea (M)
b. circa 1686, d. before 1724, #160954

     John O'Rea was also known as John Orear. He was also known as John Orea. John O'Rea was born in 1675 at Of, Dettingen Parrish, Virginia; not proven, from Peck researchers. John O'Rea was born circa 1686; assumed. He married Mary Peck, daughter of Possibly father of Mary Robert Peck and Possibly mother of Mary Margaret (Unknown), before 10 May 1708; 1st marriage Mary. On 10 May 1708 10 May 1708 - Richmond Co., VA: Robert Peck and wife Margaret of St. Mary's Parish, Richmond Co., VA, execute a lifetime lease to John and Mary Orian[Oriar] of Stafford Co., VA for 100 acres of land. After John and Mary Oriar's deaths, the land is to go to their daughter Margaret Oriar. Robert Peck states that this transaction is for "the love, goodwill, and affection which I have and bare towards my loving friend, Margaret Oriar, dau. to John and Mary Oriar." Assuming this Margaret Oriar (who later married John Glassock) was b. in 1701, she would have been 7 years old at the time of this Peck/Oriar transaction. This appears to be the case of grandparents providing for a young granddaughter, although specific relationships are not stated. Also, since John Oriar is married and has a young daughter in 1708, I would think this would make his birthyear 1686 or earlier. Thus he would be at least 25 years old when the 1711 land grant was made (by his wife's parents???).
John O'Rea was a planter circa 1711 at Stafford County, Virginia. He was granted in the amount or 400 acres along with Daniel Orea (beleived to be his son) in 1711. He was granted received a 400 acre grant of land on Dorrell's Run adjoining the Harrison and Whitledge grant in what became Fauquier County, Virginia near the traditional site of Brent Town in then Stafford County from Lady Catherine Fairfax, Proprietrix of the Northern Neck of Virginia. John built the family home, Cloverfield, there which stood until about 1940. John sold part of his land before 1744 to Col. Thomas Harrison. On 30 August 1711 at "Cloverfield", Prince William County, Virginia. On 1722 he received payment for wolf heads.
On 1723 he paid taxex on 400 acres along with Daniel Orea.
He died before 1724; from Reno researchers as this is the date that Mary married William Thorn.
