I think I may have deciphered a link between Henry Ballentine (also known as Valentine) of Currituck Co., NC with his origins in Norfolk Co., VA. I hope anyone who can offer criticism will do so. Here is what I gather about the early Ballentines from the sources available to me:

George Ballentine, Sr., (d. c. 1702, will) married Frances Yates (Yeats) the daughter of John and Joane Yates of Lower Norfolk. He was in Virginia as early as the 1650's or 1660's. John Yates was in Virginia as early as the 1630's. He paid for his own transportation to Virginia, as well as that of wife Joane, son Richard and daughter Mary. Also imported several servants.
