He came to Goochland County from Prince William County, Virginia before 1737. (Note: Prince William county was formed in 1731 from parts of Stafford and King George counties.)
One LDS entry (1KSH-JVV) shows his birthdate as 1714, and his parents as Thomas Conolly c1685 Essex Co VA d <1713-04-09 Lancaster VA + Anne Mayfield c1690.

There are a bunch of RootsWeb entries for the above Thomas Conolly + Anne Mayfield. Most of them show only one child: John c1705. (Generally the name is spelled Connally.)
A message on the Connolly genforum says that there is no proof John is son of Thomas, but that Thomas and Anne were known to have had daughters.
His will is in Goochland Co Will Book 14 p43.
