Benjamin Whicker Sr

New World: It is hard for us to imagine the swirl of emotions that must have coursed through the Wicker immigrants. They left a secure homeland in Devon & departed for the colonies & a different life. It dosen't appear that they left for punitive or disciplinary reason. It was the lure of a new land with fresh opportunity that brought them to the colonies.

Benjamin & his family first moved as permanent settlers in New Kent Co Va. Benjamin was patriarch at that time. Shortly they moved into Hanover Co, probably before 1725. Louisa Co was cut off from Hanover Co so, in 1742, the main family shifted residence without moving. Granville Co NC opened up for settlement in 1747, & before long most of the family of Benjamin moved into that area.

They were neither wealthy nor titled. Yet, they could afford land & were reasonably prosperous. Parish records in St Peter's Parish in Va show that most had some education. They were active in community life, appearing in court records often as jurors, road overseers. They were "processioners" of land & workers within the church itself. Processioning was the practice of walking the boundaries of each landowner's holding to reaffirm the correctness of their boundaries.

Notes: Benjamin was sent to England when quite young. He was there when Thomas, already a widower, wrote his will in 1704. There are very few records of Benjamin. He may have come to Virginia in the ship "Mary" in 1716 when Barbara Levermore wrote her will aboard that ship; Mentions in her will: "I give Elizabeth & Benjamin Wicker all due from them & the like to James Henderson."

Church Records: New Kent Co Va, show Benjamin & Elizabeth being paid as guardian of George Baisey 1718/1721

Death: It appeared that Benjamin must have died in NC. After much study of deeds it is more likely Benjamin & wife died in Va, perhaps, Hanover Co. Few probate records exist for Hanover Co
