Spotsylvania County is considered to be the ancestral home of the "Endfield Wallers". Immigrant founder of this large important branch was Colonel John Waller. Tens of thousands of Waller descendants living in the United States can trace their roots to this individual.

In 1951, Andrew Lewis Riffe authored an article regarding the
Wallers." The story was published in "The Virginia Magazine of
Biography" and has since enjoyed a world-wide readership through the
microfilm. Andrew Riffe is dead and the VMH&B is out-of-business. There
should be a
manner in which questions may be asked and errors corrected. For this reason
"Waller Family" web-site is publishing portions of the article.

The following is from an article written by Earl B. Robb. Earl lives in
Missouri but for work on this website, see (see Union Co, KY)
Col. John Waller, the second son of Dr. John Waller and Mary Pomfrett, was born at Newport-Pagnell, Buckinghamshire, England on 23 Feb., 1673. About 1696, while yet in his twenties, Col. John came to Virginia and purchased 1039 acres of land from Elias Downs, located in Pamunkey Neck, on the Mattaponi River in what was to become King William County, Virginia, in 1701. On this land, he established his plantation home which he called "Endfield." Col. John Waller married Dorothy King about 1697 or 1698. He was made Justice of the Peace in the new county in 1701 and Sheriff in 1702. He became a Major of Militia in 1704 and was elected to the House of Burgesses for the term 1710-1714 and for another term from 1720-1722.
It would appear that Col. John had acquired additional land in the western part of King William County, which ended up in the new county of Spotsylvania when the county was organized in 1720. In 1722 he became the first Clerk of the new county of Spotsylvania, an office that would remain in his family for three generations, as two sons and two grandsons served the county. In 1723, Col. John moved his home to Spotsylvania County, calling the new plantation "Newport." He was succeeded as County Clerk in 1742 by his son, Edmund. He was made a vestryman of St. George Parish, Spotsylvania County, in 1745, and a Trustee of the new City of Fredericksburg in 1747. He died in 1754.
