I have been publishing my family history as websites, which are actually genealogy books, as I have much written materials in them, not merely names and dates. Two of my websites have recently been published into printed books. Therefore, this is my book store - Neddy's Book Nook. I hope you enjoy my offerings.

"Peyton, of England and Virginia from Virginia Genealogies"
A Reprinting of Reverend Hayden's Genealogy of the PEYTON Family
"Reverend Horace Edwin HAYDEN, continues to be the leading genealogist of the PEYTON family of Virginia. His celebrated book, "Virginia Genealogies," published 1891, included the chapter, "PEYTON, 'of Iselham,' Cambridgeshire, England, Gloucester, and Westmoreland Counties, Virginia." The author closely followed the English PEYTON lines in the 1878 "Genealogical Memoirs of the Extinct Family of Chester of Chicheley," by Robert E. Chester WATERS. One hundred seventeen years ago, when Reverend HAYDEN published his research of the Virginia PEYTONs, it was the most comprehensive and accurate in data, scope and material ever received. Since then, his extensive "PEYTON" chapter in "Virginia Genealogies" has formed the basis of all succeeding published genealogies of the PEYTON family. This reprint includes the now extinct PEYTON family of Gloucester County, and Hayden's acclaimed essay "Descent." This scanned reprint will be a welcome and necessary resource for those studying the PEYTON family of Virginia. ~~Paperback Print
