Part I: William and Mary Jane Womack of Henrico Co., Virginia.

The ancestor of most of the Womacks in America today is believed to be William Womack who was born about 1610 to 1620 presumably in England, county Norfolk. There are still Womacks in that area. On a tour of England in 1970 a Womack store was noticed in Sleaford. William is believed to have come to Henrico County, Virginia between 1630 and 1640. The five sons of William--William, Abraham, Richard, Thomas and John are mentioned in the Colonial Records of Virginia as was the ancestral home being Norfolk, England. There were two daughters, Ann and Mary.

The descendants of William Womack remained essentially southern families. In the 1790 census there were at least 30 Womack families in Virginia. There were 11 in North Carolina and 2 in South Carolina. Later they went westward to Tennessee, Kentucky and Missouri and later still to the north- west and farther west. They went south to Alabama, Georgia, Texas and other states.

The Womack name is spelled with many variations in the records: Womack, Wamack, Wamoche, Wommack, Waamock, Wamocke and many others. The most used pronunciation of the families in North Carolina and Tennessee put the accent on the first syllable as Wom'ack. In a few instances an "r" was used in the first syllable as War'mack.
