The Crump-Ivey-Flythe Connection

On October 30, 1878, in Greensville County, Virginia, Thomas Jefferson Flythe married Minnie Chesterfieldia Crump as his second wife.  Minnie C. Crump was the daughter of John James Crump and Elizabeth John Ivey Williamson of Southampton County, Virginia.  Minnie’s mother, Elizabeth John Ivey, was one of the two illegitimate daughters of Benjamin Williamson and Elizabeth Ivey.  Elizabeth John Ivey's sister, Nancy Ann Ivey, was also illegitimate.

Their mother, Elizabeth Ivey, was the daughter of Peterson and Sarah Ivey of Southampton Co. and was orphaned as a young child.  The family tree at the end of Henry Ivey’s narrative below traces Elizabeth back to the earliest known Ivey ancestor in this area.

ivey   Henry Ivey, Jr. of Southampton County, Virginia

Henry Ivey, Jr. is one of the ancestors of Minnie C. Crump, second wife of Thomas Jefferson FlytheAdam Ivey of Charles City County was Henry's distant ancestor, and the founder of one Ivey family branch in the colony of Virginia. Henry seems to have lived most of his adult life in Southampton County, Virginia.  His father was Henry Ivy, Sr. and his mother was Rebecca Sledge

He made his first land acquisition there in 1749:

March 6, 1749.   Peter Hay sells to Henry Ivey, jr. land "on north side of the Three Creeks & .... of the Great Swamp being part of two surveys containing 100 acres..... more or less".  Bounded by main run of sd. Creeks, mouth of Beaver Pond. 
Wit: William + Vaughn, his mark , Burrell
  (N)  Atkins,  John Thorp  
Signed: Peter Hays, Martha + Hays her mark
Rec.: Mar. 8, 1749

Peter Hay was a relative.  He was probably married to Martha Sledge, a possible relative of Rebecca Sledge, although this is not certain.

The father, Henry, Sr., consistently marked his deeds with an X, but his son Henry made a distinctive mark, H I.  Aside from the fact that they were described in the documents as Sr. and Jr., Henry Ivy, Jr.’s individual mark makes it possible to distinguish the two.

Three years later, Henry sold what appears to be the tract of land that he purchased from Peter Hay:

Aug. 13, 1752.  Henry Ivey,  sells to John Spence for 12 pounds, 100 acres of land.  "on north side of the Three Creeks &.... north side of Great Swamp"... "Part of two surveys containing 100 acres". Bounded by the Creek, Beaver Pond.  
No wit.
Signed: Henry (his H I mark) Ivey  Memd.
Rec:  Aug. 13, 1752 possession given to John Spence  Aug. 13, 1752 - Lucy wife of sd. Henry relinq dower

One of the interesting aspects of this document is that Henry’s wife, Lucy, relinquished her dower right in the land.  The Albemarle Parish Registry states that a child named Rebecca was born to Henry Ivey and Leucretia on June 4, 1749.  The baby was christened on July 9, 1749.   The Godparents were Joseph Prince, Mary Hubbard, and Amy Jones.   Although a daughter, Rebecca, was not mentioned in Henry’s will, it is quite likely that she was born to Henry and his first wife, Leucretia, who was also called Lucy.   Since none of Henry’s other children, Adam, Peterson, Wyke, Charlotte, Elizabeth, Sally, or Rhoda were registered in the Albemarle Parish Registry, Henry and his wife probably lived in Southampton County after the birth of this child.

Henry was probably married about 1747 or 1748,  and a few years later he acquired more land,  this time from his father in a deed of gift:

Aug. 8, 1754.  Henry Ivey, Sr. to Henry Ivey, jr. 100 acres bounded by Three Creeks.  Henry Ivey, Sr. "doth give and bequeath" Indenture of gift. 
Wit: Timothy Thorp, Amos Harris, John Spence. 
Signed:   Henry Ivey  Rec.: Aug. 8, 1751

He continued to acquire land:

Nov. 9, 1760.  William Heath son of Benjamin Heath, decd. of Prince George co. sells to Henry Ivy, Jr. for 50 pounds, 100 acres. Bounded by Great Swamp, Thomas Griffis.

Signed: William Heath  
Delivery Wit: James Jones, Benj. Lewis, John (his X mark) Ivy, Henry (his X mark) Ivy  Rec.: Nov. 13, 1760

Henry was mentioned in the will of a friend although he did not appoint him as executor:

April 29, 1762. Will of William Morgan of Nottoway Parish. My land to be sold by my friend Henry Ivey, Jr. and the proceeds of the sale to go to my wife and at her decease to all my children.  Ex. Capt. Timothy Thorpe. 
Wit: John Ivey, Francis Hilliard, William Morgan, Jr. 
Rec.: May 13, 1762

In 1762 & 1763, Henry also witnessed some deeds, consistently using his mark.   He then carried out his friend’s wishes:

Aug. 9, 1764. Henry Ivey, jr. and Ann Morgan, widow & relict of Wm. Morgan sell to Benjamin Lewis. "sd. Wm. Morgan by will did direct sale of land...232 acres on six months credit .....& money applied to Just debts & funeral expenses....."  for 107 pounds & 3 shillings, 86 acres north side of Three Creeks granted by patent to Adam Heath June 16, 1714 & conveyed by his heirs to Wm. Morgan Dec. 11, 1742.  Bounded by Three Creeks.
Wit: None.

Rec.: Aug. 9, 1764. Rec. again on page 319 of Book 3

Henry Ivey, Jr. purchased land from Abraham Wiggins that would later be sold by Peterson Ivey:

July 11, 1785.  Abraham Wiggins and Nancy his wife sell to Henry Ivey for 34 pounds Land on the north side of Three Creeks “being part of the said Wiggins tract of land whereon he lives” containing 68 acres.  Bounded by John Applewhaite, Wiggins,  William Cofield, Henry Applewhite. 
Wit: John Pate, Ephraim Ivey, Peoples Ivey
Signed: Abraham Wiggins  Ack. July 14, 1785

Before 1789, Henry’s wife Lucy died and Henry remarried.  His second wife was Winney Ivey.  The 1789 will of Adam Ivey of Sussex County mentioned his daughter “Winney Ivey, wife of Henry Ivey.”  It also mentioned the brothers and sister that Winney remembered in her own will many years later.  She left nothing to any of Henry Ivey’s children so it is not likely that she was their mother.  

Personal Property Tax Lists of Southampton County are particularly useful in the attempt to sort out all the members of the Ivey family.  In 1782, a Henry Ivey was listed with one white tithable and 15 slaves.  His father, Henry Ivey, Sr., had died about 1773 so it is likely that Henry, Jr. was the one on the list.  In 1784, Henry was listed with another Ivey designated only as “W”.  The tax list for this year included free white tithables over 21. This was probably Wyke, and it means that Wyke had just become tithable.  This would seem to indicate that Wyke was born before 1763.  Likewise, Peterson Ivey, Henry’s son, appeared as a head of household in 1786.  He was probably born before 1765.  An entry for 1791 was for Henry Ivey’s estate with Adam Ivey appearing for the first time.

Henry died soon after he wrote his will in 1791:

January 26, 1791.  Will of Henry Ivey

His widow survived him by seventeen years and her will was written and probated in 1808.  Her relationship to Elizabeth Grizzard and Phoebe Harris is not known at this time.  They may have just been friends:

Children of Henry Ivey, Jr. (1728-1791) and Lucretia

ivey   B. Wyke Ivey 5  (Henry 4, Henry 3, George 2, Adam 1)

Wyke (Wyche?) was the oldest, born about 1763 and his name does hint at the possibility that Lucy (Lucretia) was a member of the Wyche family.  Very little more can be said about Wyke in Southampton County.  He appeared as a free tithable over 21 in the personal property tax lists of 1784 as “W” in Henry’s household.  The list included him with his father also in 1787 and 1788.  He does not appear in the lists after that and left the area. He apparently moved to Lancaster County, South Carolina in 1790 or a bit before that.

ivey   C. Peterson Ivey 5  (Henry 4, Henry 3, George 2, Adam 1)

This son was born at least by 1765 and died in late 1802 or early 1803.  He was probably married some time in the 1780s.  His wife was a Sarah, very probably Sarah (Sally) Adams, daughter of Benjamin Adams.  

There is no record of Peterson’s marriage, but Benjamin Adam’s 1794 will mentions a Sally Ivey:

Adams, Benjamin.  Leg.- daughter Sally Ivy; daughter Priscilla Prince; wife Margaret; daughter Charlotte; daughter Nancy; son Arthur; daughter Betsey; granddaughter Sally Adams.  Exs., wife and son-in-law Joseph Prince.  D. Oct. 30, 1794.  R. March 12, 1795. 
Wit.  Herbert Pate, Jordan Pate, Richard Mason.

After Peterson’s demise, Joseph Prince and Arthur Adams provided security for Sarah’s administration of the estate.  In addition, Peterson and Sarah’s daughter, Elizabeth, selected Joseph Prince as her guardian and when the son Benjamin purchased Peterson’s land years later, a Margaret Adams was mentioned as owning adjoining property.  

Before the death of Henry Ivey, Sr. he deeded some land over to Peterson Ivey: 

Jan. 9, 1790.  Henry Ivey, Sr. of the Parish of St. Luke to Peterson Ivey “hath given, granted & bequeathed” land in Parish of St. Luke, 140 acres.  Bounded by north side of Plowmans Swamp, Edward Pate’s land. 
Wit: Thomas Ridley, Wm Edmunds, Thomas Fitzhugh. 
Signed:  Henry (his X mark) Ivey.  Ackn: Feb. 11, 1790

The land that Henry willed to Peterson was sold soon after the death of Henry, Sr.:

1793.  Peterson Ivey and wife Sarah sell to Ephraim Ivey of Sussex County land on north side of Three Creeks …”land that Henry Ivey decd purchased of Abraham Wiggins”.  Bounded by Applewhite, Cypress Branch,Wiggins. 
Wit: none. 
Signed: Peterson Ivey, Sally Ivey.  Ackn: June 13, 1793

It appears that Peterson died in 1802 when he was about 37 years old. Very early in 1803, Peterson’s widow went to court to begin settling the estate:

Jan. 17, 1803.  On the motion of Sally Ivey for administration on the estate of Peterson Ivey decd. the same is granted her after making oath according to law giving bond and security.  Whereupon the said Sally Ivey with Joseph Prince Arthur Adams and Thomas Applewhite  her securities entered into and acknowledged and pledged the bond in the penalty of five thousand dollars for the said Sally due(?) and faithful administration on the estate of the said decedent.[13] 

A chancery case, Ivey vs. Ivey1807-016, was filed in court a few years after Peterson’s death.  This case listed all of Peterson’s heirs.  He had died intestate so this was crucial in determining the identities of his children.

Oct. 21, 1811.  Sally Ivey is by the court appointed guardian of Peterson and Sterling Ivey orphans of Peterson Ivey decd on her giving bond and security.  Whereupon the said Sally Ivey with George Ivey and Henry Mason her securities entered into and acknowledged their bond in the penalty of five hundred dollars for securing the said orphans estate and indemnification of the court.[14]  

However, the children lost their mother, Sally, in 1812.   Her son-in-law, George Ivey, was appointed administrator of her estate and the estate of Peterson Ivey:

Oct. 19, 1812.  Admin on Sally Iveys estate granted George Ivey Jr. who gave bond. This resultd in another Chancery Case. Sothampton County, Virginia 1812-006, that further clarifies relationships.  It was followed by a change od administration of Peterson Ivey's etsate. [15]   

Feb. 16, 1813.
Administration D. B. N. Peterson Iveys estate is granted unto George Ivey who gave bond and security.[16]

The underage, single children had guardians appointed for them. 

The 1815 Landowners Directory provides an idea of the general location of Peterson Ivey’s home and it relationship to other members of the Ivey families:

Ivey, Peterson, estate, heirs:  Land at Three Creeks, 19 miles west of the courthouse
Ivey George, Senior
; land location not specified, 22 miles west of courthouse
Ivey, George, Jr
.; land at Three Creeks, 22 miles west of the courthouse
Ivey, Charlotte
; Three CK; 23w
Ivey, Nathan
; Three Ck; 24w [17] 

Peterson and Sarah were the parents of Lucy, Benjamin, Thomas, Henry, Sally, Polly, Sterling, Peterson, and Elizabeth.

Children of Peterson and Sarah Adams Ivey

 With the exception of Elizabeth Ivey, the birthdates of these children are estimates and should not be relied upon as proven.  The birth year of Elizabeth Ivey has been passed down through several lines of descendants and I accept it as accurate.

ivey   i. Lucy Ivey 6 (Peterson 5, Henry 4, Henry 3, George 2, Adam 1)
   (1784 - 1859)

Lucy married George Ivey on Feb. 27, 1808 in Southampton County.  George was a cousin of Lucy.  After the marriage, George Ivey was frequently involved in the settlement of Peterson and Sarah Ivey’s estates:

George and Lucy prospered and lived for the rest of their lives in Southampton.  They were the parents of: Sarah (1812), Charles (1814) Elizabeth (1817), Lucy (1823), Rebecca, Eliza (1825), Letitia P. (1827).   

ivey   ii.  Benjamin Ivey 6 (Peterson 5, Henry 4, Henry 3, George 2, Adam 1)
   (ca. 1787 -  ? )

Peterson’s son, Benjamin, appears in the Personal Property Tax lists from 1812 through 1826 with the exception of 1825.   In 1816, Peterson Ivey was listed as a tithable in Benjamin’s household.  In 1819, the list has “Benjamin and his brother Peterson.”

A Benjamin Ivey had died in Southampton in 1789 and left a widow Mary and sons Benjamin and Phillips.  A Benjamin Ivey appears in the 1820 Census and it seems plausible that he could be Phillips Ivey’s brother. For many years, I was not sure which Benjamin Ivey was in the Census, but this deed demonstrates that Phillip’s brother, Benjamin,  had moved to Randolph County, NC very soon after his father’s death.

Jan. 19, 1790. Benjamin Ivy sells to Phillips Ivy a plantation which Benjamin Ivy heired from the will of his father that his mother still lives on.  175 acres on south side of Three Creeks for $55.  Wit: John Rogers as to Benj. Ivy, William Edmunds as to Benj. Ivy, Samuel Francis  as to Benj. Ivy, Peterson Ivy as to Benj. Ivy.
Wit: John Rogers, Peterson Ivy
Signed: Benjamin Ivy, Sally Ivy

John Rogers Benjamin Blunt Junr.   Whereas Benjamin Ivey and Sally his wife of the county of Randolph state of North Carolina ….sold to Phillips Ivey 175 acres.  Sally cannot travel to the courthouse to acknowledge relinquishment of her dower.  Rogers and Blunt must go to her.
Nov. 30, 1791.  Relinquishment recorded.

When Benjamin was about thirty years old, he purchased the land that his mother had possessed during her life: 

March 10, 1818.  Thomas Applewhite, Edw’d Reese, & Hardy Harris “(commissioners…) sell to Benjamin Ivey for 155 pounds “land….by estimation 155 acres ….. it being the land and plantation whereon Peterson Ivey and Sally Ivey dec. died seized and possessed”  Bounded by John Pate, Grizzard, Thomas Applewhite’s mill pond, Margaret Adams.  Signed: Thomas Applewhite, Edward Reese, Hardy Harris  
Ackn: April 20, 1818 [20]

In 1820, Peterson’s son Benjamin Ivey was head of household consisting of 2 white males under 10, 1 white male 16-25, 1 white male 26-44, and 1 white female 26-44.  The identities of these children and possible wife are not known.  Benjamin’s brother Peterson does not appear in the 1820 Personal Property Tax lists and may have been living in Benjamin’s household. 

A few years later, he had to mortgage the land apparently because of debts:

Jan. 4, 1824 Benjamin Ivy being justly indebted to Thomas Ivy of Southampton Co. in the sum of $362 puts land in trust to George Ivy contingent on paying debt to Thomas Ivy land bounded by Thomas Applewhite, Ambrose Grizzard and Anselm Reese. 
Wit:  Littleton Williamson, Thomas B. Turner, Wyatt (his X mark) Ivy
Signed: Benjamin Ivy, George Ivy (trustee)

Not too long after this, for some reason Benjamin sold the land to his brother Thomas:

Oct. 25, 1825. Benjamin Ivy of So. Co. sells to Thomas Ivy for $550 land bounded by Thomas Applewhite on the east, and north, on the west by Ambrose Grizzard and on the north by the mill containing 165 acres. 
Wit: Benjamin Williamson, Joseph Harris, Lewis Thorp. 
Benjamin Ivy.

Benjamin does not seem to have prospered and this implies that he may have had some disability or compulsive behavior such as gambling.  The children of Peterson and Sally Ivey were orphaned at young ages and must have lacked the guidance provided by mature parents.  Relatively few of them lived as well as their parents.

After about 1830, Benjamin Ivey became very rare in the record.  He may be the person who was taken to court in 1843 because of debt.  In 1845, a Benjamin Ivey and his wife Margaret were listed in a chancery suit involving Henrietta Pierce’s estate in Southampton.  It appears that this is a Benjamin Ivey from Halifax County, North Carolina and not Peterson Ivey’s son Benjamin.

A possible appearance of Peterson’s Benjamin is in the 1850 Census for Sussex County which borders Southampton.  A 50 years old Benjamin Ivey was living in the household of David Grizzard.  It is not known if David was a relative of Henry Grizzard, but further research might clarify this.  It is possible that Benjamin was living with a relative of his deceased sister Polly Ivey Grizzard.

In the 1860 Census for Southampton County, seventy-three year old Benjamin Ivey was living in the household of Samuel Drewry along with a twenty one year old John Ivey. 
The relationships, if any, of these people are not known.  After this, an elderly Benjamin Ivey does not appear anywhere.

ivey   iii.  Thomas Ivey 6 (Peterson 5, Henry 4, Henry 3, George 2, Adam 1)
   (ca. 1791 - 1826 Sussex Co.)

This son of Peterson Ivey apparently lived in Sussex County and died there in 1826 leaving an incomplete will:

Sept. 7, 1826.  Will of Thomas Ivey. 
I Thomas Ivey having a disposing mind and memory do make this my last Will and Testament.
I give to Charles Ivey son of George Ivey one thousand dollars
I give to Norfleet Ivey son of Henry Ivey one thousand dollars

This document was not signed and there were no witnesses.  Sussex County Court recognized it has Thomas Ivey’s will and granted George Ivey the obligation to administer it. 

In 1830, a chancery court case, Ivey et al. vs. Grizzard 1830-053, was filed by some of the children against the heirs of two deceased siblings, Henry Ivey and Polly Ivey Grizzard.  The brother Thomas Ivey had died single and childless and his land in Southampton had not been mentioned in his will, or distributed or sold.  The heirs wanted the land sold and the estate completely settled. Benjamin Ivey was one of the children and at least the suit indicates that he was still living in the Southampton area.  It is very likely that he was employed by a farmer and for that reason did not appear in any court records. 

ivey   iv. Henry Ivey 6 (Peterson 5, Henry 4, Henry 3, George 2, Adam 1)
    (1788 - bef. 1822)

This son married Polly Reese on Nov. 14, 1809.  There was no guardian to give permission so it appears that Henry was probably born about 1788 or a bit earlier. 

Dec. 16, 1822. George Ivy, guardian to Norfleet and Sally Ivy, orphans of Henry Ivy, dec. James P. Heath & John Wommack his securities bond $700 [24] 

Henry apparently died without a will and his estate settlement has not been examined.

ivey   v.  Sally Ivey 6 (Peterson 5, Henry 4, Henry 3, George 2, Adam 1)
   (ca. 1789 - ca. 1859)

Sally Ivey has not been clearly identified, but may be the Sally mentioned in one of the letters from Nancy Ann Ivey Holliday to her sister Elizabeth Ivey Crump. 

ivey   vi.  Polly Ivey 6 (Peterson 5, Henry 4, Henry 3, George 2, Adam 1)
   (ca.1795 - bef. 1830)

This daughter married Henry Grizzard, but the date and location of the wedding has not been established.  She is mentioned in Southampton County Chancery Case Ivey vs. Grizzard, 1830-053.  The date of her death is not known, and further research would perhaps provide more information about her fate and the fate of her descendants.

ivey   vii.  Sterling Ivey 6 (Peterson 5, Henry 4, Henry 3, George 2, Adam 1)
   (ca.1797 - ?

Jan. 17, 1814  Henry Ivey appt guardian to Sterling Ivey orphan of Peterson Ivey who gave bond and security. [25]

Sterling Ivey appeared in the 1826 personal property Tax lists of Southampton one time. 

This son of Peterson and Sarah married Nancy Thomas in 1827 in Sussex County.  His brother Peterson Ivey was one of his bondsmen for the marriage.  He may have moved to Sussex County and does not appear in any Southampton County records after 1826.  He is not traced further.

ivey   viii.  Peterson Ivey 6 (Peterson 5, Henry 4, Henry 3, George 2, Adam 1)
   (ca. 1801 - ? )

This son appeared with his older brother Benjamin in the 1817 personal property tax list.  The 1819 PP tax list actually says “Banjamin and brother Peterson Ivey”.  In 1820, Peterson is not in Benjamin’s household.  He does not appear in these lists again until 1830.  The lists name only tithable white males over 16 so if Peterson was married and had young sons, they are not in this record. The lists of 1833 are the last ones to have Peterson listed.

It seems that by 1838, Peterson may have abandoned his household because of debt.:

August 21, 1838.   R. G. Neves having obtained an attachment against the goods and Chattels of Peterson Ivey who has privately ____ out of the county or privately absconded and concealed himself so that the ordinary process of the law cannot be served upon him for thirteen dollars due by accounts and the constable having made return of said attachment that he had levied it on two sows and seven shoats of the goods and Chattels of  said Peterson Ivey for reasons appearing to the court this cause is continued to the next court.[26]  

Roughly a month later, Neves the plaintiff prevailed on the court to sell some of Peterson’s property and compensate him.  During the same court session another plaintiff, William Prince, also stated that Peterson was an absconding debtor and the court ordered that he also be compensated by sale of Peterson’s attached property.

On Nov. 19th of the same year, James Mason also obtained an attachment on the estate of Peterson Ivey and was granted compensation in the amount of twenty eight dollars.  This is the last mention of Peterson Ivey in the records of Southampton County that I have
found.  There is no evidence of his death and it is quite possible that he lived elsewhere leaving his wife and children to fend for themselves. 

There were three young Ivey males who appeared in the 1850s in the records of Southampton.  Their parentage is unknown.  Benjamin Byrd born about 1835, John P(eterson) born about 1840, and Littleton Ivey born about 1823 are quite a puzzle.  They are not sons of George Ivey who had one son Charles, nor John Ivey, whose 1848 will does not mention them.   Wyatt Ivey had sons William and James and Kinchen Ivey had sons William H. B., James and George.   Joel Ivey died about 1819 apparently as a young man without children.  The father of these three men may have lived in Northampton County, North Carolina or a nearby Virginia county, but this has not been investigated.

It seems possible that these are the sons of Peterson Ivey, the absconding debtor. As usual, more research might shed light on the puzzle.

ivey   ix.  Elizabeth Ivey 6 (Peterson 5, Henry 4, Henry 3, George 2, Adam 1)
   (1802 - 1850)

Elizabeth Ivey is difficult to trace, but was mentioned briefly in the guardianship records of Southampton County:

Sept. 17, 1810  Elizabeth Ivey orphan of Peterson Ivey this day made choice of Joseph Prince for her guardian who gave bond. [27]  

She may have been Peterson’s last child.   

An Elizabeth Ivey did appear in the deeds of Southampton County as a young woman when she purchased land from Benjamin Williamson:

Oct. 11, 1825. Benjamin Williamson sells to Elizabeth Ivy for $130 on the south side of Three Creeks, 34 acres bounded by road from Southampton courthouse to Belfield... & orphans of Carter Hutchins...John Barham....John A. Thomas, orphan of David Thomas.
Wit:  George X Eppes, George Ivy. 
Signed: Benjamin Williamson

This association with Benjamin Williamson is important.  It also puzzled me for quite a while.  I had been told many years ago that Nancy Ann Ivey and Elizabeth Ivey were the daughters of Benjamin and Elizabeth Ivey.  However, nothing in the record supported that.  Nancy Ann Ivey was born about 1833 and Elizabeth was born in 1828.  I could not identify a Benjamin Ivey in Southampton County with two daughters born about those times. Very early on in my research I had communicated with members of the Crump family.  They were uniformly convinced that Benjamin Ivey was the father of the two daughters. 

Then Anne Marie Piland and I discovered a chancery case, 1852-003 Crump vs. Williamson Execs. at the Library of Virginia that changed the facts significantly!  John James Crump, husband of an Elizabeth Ivey, filed suit against Benjamin Williamson and in the text stated that he had married his wife at the home of her father Benjamin Williamson.  This particular line of research was prompted by the discovery of a brief notation in the Guardian Accounts:

Nov. 18, 1850. George Ivy guardian of Lewis Worrell. Nancy Ann Ivy “from estate of Benj. Williamson”  “from estate of Eliz. Ivy [29]  

This led to the reading of the will of Benjamin Williamson.  The mystery increased!

         Teste L R Edwards

The Crump chancery case made the situation clear.  Elizabeth Ivey had never married Benjamin Williamson and the daughters Elizabeth and Nancy Ann were Williamson’s illegitimate children.  Attempts on the part of descendants to hide these facts are understandable.  Unlike today, the birth of children out of wedlock was considered shameful.  It was something not to be mentioned.   John J. Crump had married Elizabeth John Ivey on June 19, 1844 when Elizabeth was about 16 years old.  Crump was said to have been her teacher.  He was also said to be the best read man in Southampton County and was a Latin scholar. 

Nancy Ann married Jesse Holiday of Northampton Co., NC.  A contract was signed in Southampton Co. on Feb. 19, 1855 that was apparently intended to protect Nancy Ann’s inheritance. Both daughters married well.  Unfortunately, Elizabeth’s husband John James Crump died before the Civil War and she lost all the wealth she had during the war.  She was the mother of Minnie Chesterfieldia Crump, second wife of Thomas Jefferson Flythe.  

ivey   D.  Charlotte Ivey Knight 5 (Henry 4, Henry 3, George 2, Adam 1)

This daughter has not been traced.  She is called Charlotte Knight in Henry’s will, but does not seem to have lived in Southampton County with her husband.  Her fate is unknown.  

ivey   E.  Elizabeth Ivey Newsome 5 (Henry 4, Henry 3, George 2, Adam 1)

Elizabeth married a Newsome, but is otherwise untraced.

ivey   F.  Sally Ivey Finch 5 (Henry 4, Henry 3, George 2, Adam 1)

Sally has not been traced.  

ivey   G.  Rhoda Ivey 5 (Henry 4, Henry 3, George 2, Adam 1)

Rhoda is untraced.  

ivey   H.  Adam  Ivey 5 (Henry 4, Henry 3, George 2, Adam 1)

Adam was Henry Ivey’s youngest son and he did not stay in Southampton County very long.  After 1802, when he sold his inherited land, he is not to be found in the county records.  Before leaving, he married Mary Adams on Aug. 9, 1799.  It has been claimed that Mary was a granddaughter of Benjamin Adams of Southampton.  

ivey   I.  Phoebe Ivey  5 (Henry 4, Henry 3, George 2, Adam 1)

Phoebe may have been Henry’s last child and is not traced here.

Chancery Court Case, Southampton Co., Virginia

JJ Crump vs. Benj. Williamson's Execs. 1852-003

     To the Hon. Judge of the Circuit Court for the County of Southampton- In chancery Humbly complaining sheweth your complainants John J. Crump of the County of Southampton that is the month of June in the year 1844, he intermarried with (Blank) Ivey who was the daughter of Benjamin Williamson Decd formerly of the County aforesaid and was so acknowledged and received by him. That the marriage took place at the residence of said Williamson with whom your complainant and his wife remained until the month of December following when about Christmas by the permission and at the instance of the said Williamson, they removed to and settled upon a tract of land owned by the said Williamson and about two miles distant from his residence.  That from the time last above mentioned until the death of said Williamson which occurred in the summer of 1849 Your complainant and wife remained in quiet possession and enjoyment of the farm aforesaid together with certain negroes of said Williamson _____ ______ at the time they took possession and some others sent to them by him subsequently without paying rent or _____ for the same which was never by him demanded.  That your complainant always applied to his own use and purposes whatever was made on the farm, had complete control and exercised every act of ownership ___ the same all within the knowledge and by the permission of said Williamson.  That for several years after the marriage of your complainant he thinks until sometime in the year 1848, he and the said Williamson were on the most intimate and social terms, frequently together consulting and advising with respect to the management and improvement of ___ farm.  That your complainants always within the knowledge and frequently at the instance of the said Williamson made many and valuable improvements on the farm aforesaid of which he was in possession.  He enlarged and made more comfortable the small dwelling house found there at the time he removed to it.  He expended much time labour and money in clearing woodland, making the same fit for cultivation and improving the worn out soil and many other such improvement not material to be here stated;  all of which together with his mode of cultivation which were such as tended much more to the improvement of the farm in permanent value than to the increase of its annual product.

     Your complainant further states that being the husband of the daughter of said Williamson having been placed in possession of the plantation and negroes aforesaid by him and being permitted to use and enjoy the same in every respect as his own property no rent or ___ having ever been paid him or demanded by the said Williamson and by many other acts and circumstances which took place between the parties not necessary to be here stated, he was induced and encouraged by the said Williamson to make the many and valuable improvements above mentioned on the premises under the most reasonable and natural belief that he the said Williamson would give him the said farm as the marriage portion of his wife.  But contrary to his reasonable expectation your complainant states that the said Williamson at his death left a will which has been duly admitted to probate and a copy herewith filed as part of this bill in which the said plantation is devised to another by which your complainant is greatly injured in being deprived of the benefit of his valuable improvements before stated which he positively avers he would never have made on the farm except under the belief induced by the conduct of said Williamson that he was improving his own or what was to be his own property.

    In consideration of the fact before stated your complainant charges that the said Williamson by his conduct practiced a fraud upon him and he is advised that he has a right to demand from the estate of said Williamson full compensation for the improvements aforesaid, which he thinks are reasonably worth between five and six hundred dollars.

    Your complainant therefore probably in consideration of the premises that Edwin B. Claud and Joseph H. Prince Executors of Benj. Williamson decd be made parties defendant to this bill and be compelled to answer the same. That a commission of the court be directed to take an account of the value of the improvements made on the farm aforesaid by your complainant and the said defendants be compelled to pay the same  out of the assets of the testator.  And that your Honor will grant him such other and general relief as justice and equity may require and he will as in duty bound ___ pray so.
