This is a reunion of the descendants of William Reynolds Jr. and his sister Matilda Jane Reynolds Spencer, both originally from Chelsea, England.  William Reynolds Jr. lived in Tyrrell County and became a Primitive Baptist Preacher, while Matilda Jane Reynolds Spencer lived near Roper in Washington County and ran a local store.

Also, everyone is encouraged to bring any items of family interest that they have (such as old pictures, family bibles, diaries or handiwork) to the reunion for “show and tell”.


Mark Bateman, our President, will lead the program of “Reynolds Family – Coming to America”.  Hear the story of how our Reynolds ancestors first came over to America, how many came, where they landed, lost family lines, and more!
