Note1:  The personal family names of Ralph and John, which are repeated in Virginia and North Carolina, suggests that Ralph and John Outlawe, shipwrights, were related and very possibly brothers. 

Note 2: Records indicate there were several John Outlaws in the ship building area of Greater London.  I plan to obtain the will of John Outlaw, shipwright of Deptford, in the hope of identifying his family members.  Could John Outlaw, who died about 1639-40, be a relative, possibly the father or an uncle of Captain John and younger brother Edward, perhaps Ralph Outlaw?

Note 3:  Captain John Outlaw was apparently born about 1634 based on the marriage record of John Outlawe and the widow Elizabeth Baker.  They had a son named John.

Note 4: Marriage of John Outlaw and Mary Seale, which is noted in some Canadian biographies of Capt. John Outlaw/Jean Outelas

Note: 5;  So far the record of baptism or christening of Edward Outlaw has not been identified.  If Captain John Outlaw was about 34 when the “affray” with Constable Dafnell took place and he was also fined in tobacco, could Edward have been older than previously proposed?
