John WORTHAM



First Generation



    XX 1. John WORTHAM, was born in 1625 in Cambridgeshire, England. He died on 8 Jun 1692 in Middlesex, , Virginia.

      The Original file was given to me by Joan Myrna WEATHERS. Since then it's been updated, and added to, I've had fun with this Wortham line.

      Note: John Wortham, (1625-June 6, 1692) born in Cambridgeshre, England.
      The first ancestor that we know an extensive amount of information about. John Immigrated to the New World in 1642/43 into possibly Northampton County, Virginia by Hungar’s Creek area or possible around Yorktown or Jamestown. The next entry for John Wortham is on March 5, 1658 in which 400 acres of land was sold to him in Lancaster County, now Middelsex County “on the Piankatank side of the main road just below the cut-off to the Dragon Run Crossing.” This same property is still in the family. John’s first wife was named Mary (1642-1684), surname unknown. It is likely that they married in around 1662. They had 6 children before Mary died in 1684. Around 1685, John married an Elizabeth, surname unknown. They had two children, but Elizabeth died 1687. There is also record that John married one Prudence Needham on February 25, 1686, but she died less than a year later. They had no children. John then married for a fourth time to Mrs. Jane Shackleford, “widow of Roger Shackleford of neighboring Gloucester County.” They had no children. It is proven that John Wortham had acquired enough land and made enough friends that he was listed as “Country oriented Gentry”, the second highest rank in class. He was a public official almost until his death, serving as juror, and land appraiser, and a constable before being selected for the Church Vestry in 1672 and serving in the Middlesex County Court as a Gentleman Justice. John was also a member of the Church of England, which evolved into today’s Episcopal Church in Middlesex County. In 1684, John died leaving one of the earliest wills in Virginia. His children are.

Picture of the Alexander Dixon House

      Alexander Dixon House (c.1790) and "the Office" - Headquarters of Gen. Wade Hampton during the final days of the Civil War. Ranking Confederate general Joseph E. Johnston went to Bennett Place from here on April 17 & 18, 1865 to negotiate a surrender with Gen. Sherman. The "last headquarters of the Confederacy" now serves as the Orange County Visitors Center.

      The Dixon home is now being used as the welcome center for the town of Hillsborough, Orange Co., North Carolina. Hillsborough was established in 1752 and once concidered for the State Capitol. Hillsborough played a very historic role in the Cilvil War as did the home of Alexander Dixon, General Sherman surrendered to General Johnston at the end of the the Civil War. General Johnston was using the home as his headquarters. He would go by houseback to Durham each day where General Sherman was camped to arrange the conditions of the surrender.
