This book is a compilation of information found in various sources regarding the Fleming family which emigrated from Lanarkshire in Scotland and settled in Henrico County, Virginia in the mid-1600s.  The ancestry of the original immigrant, Captain Alexander FLEMING (b. 1612; d. 1668), is traced back in time to the earliest known ancestor, William FLEMING who died in 1199, and includes one ancestor's marriage to a daughter of James STEWART IV, king of Scotland, 1488-1513.

In the Virginia Colony, the Flemings were prominent as attorneys, judges, planters, and supporters of the independence movement as officers in the Continental Army.  They were close friends of Washington and Jefferson before they were presidents.

They lived in Williamsburg, in Henrico County, and subsequent generations lived in Goochland, Chesterfield, and Cumberland counties.

Included in this book is a description of the battle of Pinkie Cleugh, which took place on 10 September 1547, the last battle fought by national armies of Scotland and England and during which one Fleming ancestor died.
