My Notes On This Group: The Roman Empire was the first to use troops all over the world they left blood groups ever where they went from Countries of Africa to England: The Roman Empire was one of the VAST spreading Empires in the World to first use troops of other Countries it conquered. The use of using other troops from Conquered Countries spread with each developing Empire.

Teal is being used for Quaker dates, these are not the same as the Julian Calender for all the other information, these need to be transcribed to be used in a Julian Calender.

 

Quaker dates have not been translated Before the 1752 calendar change, the first month of the year was March. From: Mary E. Stewart  

 

In 1752 the new year began to be counted from Jan 1. Before that it ran from March 26-March 25, Julian Calender changed. So a date in July 1750 would be earlier in the same "year" as one in Feb 1750 (which once 1752 rolled around, would be thought of as the next year). From: Barbara Schenck

NOTES. (1) This letter was written by Susan Moseley, wife of William Moseley,
formerly of Rotterdam, and at this time a prominent merchant of Lower Norfolk county, and founder of the distinguished Moseley family in Virginia.  It was written to Colonel Francis Yardley, son of Sir George Yardley, whose wife, Sarah Offley, married, firs, Captain Adam Thorowgood, who died in 1640; secondly, Captain John Gookin, who died before December, 1647, when she married Captain Francis Yardley.  She dies in 1657, and many years ago her epitaph, from a tomb in the old Lynnhaven churchyard, was printed in the Richmond Enquirer as follows:

Here lieth ye body of Capt. John Gooking and also
Ye body of Mrs. Sarah Yardley, who was wife to
Capt. Adam Thorowgood first,

Capt. John Gooking & Collonell Francis Yardley, who
deceased August 1657.

The tome was stated also to bear arms; she appears to have had no children by Gookin or Yardley; but the Thorowgood children were

Adam Thorowgood,

Ann Thorowgoo who married Job Chandler, Councillor of Maryland,

Sarah Thorowgood,

Elizabeth Thorowgood who married, 1, Simon Overzee, aged thirty years in 1657; 2, Major George Colclough. 

Adam Thorowgood, the sone, married Frances Yardley (daughter of Argall Yardley, eldest son of Sir George). 

In his will is this paragraph, which refers to his tombstone:  "My will and desire is before the signing of this my will that my executrix after my decease cause my body to be interred in the Church of Linhaven in the grave of my fahter and that shee cause a tombstone of Marble to bee sent for with the coat-of-arms of Sr George Yardley and myselfe and the same inscription as upon the broken tombe and the same to bee layd over my Grave and the other one over the grave of my mother upon brick". 

Dated last of Oct. 1670; proved feb 1685/6. 

Mr. Stanard has an interesting account of the Thorowgoods in Virginia Magazine of History and Biography, Vol. II., pp. 414-418,
but does not state the name of Job
Chandler's wife correctly, and omits the name of the wife of the second Adam Thorowgood.

Notes: Second Generation

2. Adam Thorowgood (I)(Capt.) (William 1) was born in Grimston, Norfolk, England about 1603. Based on baptism date of 1603 at St. Botolph's, Parish of Grimston, Norfolk. (Adventures of Purse & Person, p. 607) Adam died about 1640 in Lower Norfolk Co., VA. Adam Thorowgood may have been at Jamestown, VA when he died. All the paperwork was at Lower Norfolk Co.

 

He married Sarah Offley in Blackfriars, London, England, July 18, 1627. St. Anne's Church.

 

Sarah was born in England about 1609. Based on her baptism April 16, 1609 at St. Benet, Gracechurch, London. Sarah was the daughter of Robert Offley and Anne Osburn.

 

Sarah died 1657 in Lower Norfolk Co., VA, at 48 years of age. Sarah was 18 years old when she came to the Virginia colony. Court records show her bringing suit on several occasions: swearing out a warrant on Goody Layton for wronging her deceased husband with a "Pish;" two men for making insulting remarks to her daughter, Sarah in 1644; and just days before her death she took a tenant farmer to court for improper planting of an orchard and "ground made waste of." She was described as "beautiful and high-spirited" with a "backbone of steel and an indomitable will." (Norfolk Co. VA GenWeb, Thorowgood Family by Carol Middleton; dates-Meyer & Dorman, Adventurers of Purse & Person, Dietz Press, Richmond, VA 1987, pp.459, 607)

 

He made a will in Lower Norfolk Co., VA, February 17, 1639. Adam's will was probated in Lower Norfolk Co., VA, April 27, 1640. Adam Thorowgood came to Virginia on the "Charles" in 1621. He was at Elizabeth City for the 1623-4 census and is shown aged 18 for the 1624-5 census, a servant in the muster of Edward Waters. By 1626, he is known as Captain Adam Thorogood, Gentleman of Kiquotan, when he purchased 150 acres on the north side of Hampton Roads. He patented 400 acres in Elizabeth City County on March 21, 1634-5 and 5,350 acres at Lynnhaven, Lower Norfolk County in 1637. This land at Lynnhaven on the south side of Hampton Roads was due him for the personal adventure of himself and his wife and the transportation of 105 persons between 1628 and 1634 (see names in introduction).

 

He was appointed commissioner for holding monthly court at Elizabeth City on March 7, 1728-9, served as a Burgess for Elizabeth City in 1629 and 1630-1632. He was a member of the first court for Lower Norfolk County May 15, 1637, vestryman of Lynnhaven Parish and the first church of Lynnhaven Parish was built in 1639 on his land at Church Point.

 

His will named his wife, Sarah, son Adam and daughters Ann, Sarah and Elizabeth. He asked that he be buried at the parish church at Lynnhaven.

 

Adam Thorowgood(I)(Capt.) and Sarah Offley had the following children:

 

+ 4 i. Ann3 Thorowgood was born October 30, 1630.

 

5 ii. Sarah Thorowgood was born 1631. Sarah died October 9, 1658 in Charles Co., MD, at 27 years of age. She was buried on October 9, 1658. She married Simon Overzee.

 

Simon Overzee died 1660. He was a merchant of Lower Norfolk County and owner of the ship "Virginia Merchant." He moved to Charles Co. MD, where he owned land with his brother-in-law, Job Chandler, at Port Tobacco, and another tract called "Rotterdam." After Sarah's death, he married Elizabeth Willoughby, who was administrator of his estate. According to Purse & Person, Sarah died in childbirth. She had at least one child when the family moved to Maryland and the one born in 1658, none living to maturity. (Purse & Person, p. 611)

 

+ 6 iii. Elizabeth Thorowgood was born 1633.

 

+ 7 iv. Adam Thorowgood(II)(Lt. Col.) was born after 1638.

So we know from the Above that Adam Thorowgood has brought in 1628 Richard Johnson and a Thomas Johnson then he brourght three more Johnsonís into the Colonies, Richard Johnson and Thomas Johnson by 1635 and then in 1635 one Choyse Johnson and he is strongly associated with Lynnhaven Parish of Norfolk County. We also know that Adam Thorowgood was brought over by Lt. Edward Waters the neighbor of one Edward Johnson of Strawberry banckes.

In all adventures entailing danger or risk, provision is generally taken to have representation from the medical profession.  And so among the first settlers at
Jamestown we hear of William Wilkinson and Thomas Wooton,"surgeons".  In the first supply which arrived at Jamestown in January, 1608.

 

Walter Russell, "Doctor of Physic", and Post Guinnat, a chirurgeon, appeared. Russell accompanied John Smith the next summer in his exploration of Chesapeake Bay, and it was due to his skill that Smith escaped death by a fish near the mouth of the Rappahannock River.  He was stung by a stingray.  His hand, arm and shoulder swelled to such a size that his death was so certainly expected that his companions prepared a grave for him on an Island; but Doctor Russell, by dressing the wound with an ointment which he had on hand, so relieved the pain and swelling that, instead of filling a grave with his dead body, Smith filled his stomach that very evening with the fish which had so tormented him.  Russell died prior to Setpember, 1609. pg Page 97.

John Goodwin, November 20, 1635, was one of the "head rights" with William Wilkinson, and settled in Lynnhaven, Lower Norfolk, Virginia.  Untraced.

John Neale, merchant.  At the east side of this land, on the shore, about 100 poles or 500 yards from John's Creek, was the "look-out tree," where a sentinel watched the distant capes for approaching vessels.  In 1628, Lieut. Edward Waters, whose romantic career had begun in 1609, with the wreck of the "Sea Venture," and his discovery on the Bermuda Islands of a vast piece of ambergris worth three million dollars, patented 100 acres adjoining.  These two tracts, making 150 acres, or 165 acres as the surveys showed, became vested in George Downes and were long known as Downes' Field (see plat by John Lowry).  On the east side
was a marsh or gut called Thomas' Creek, still to be seen to the east of Mrs. Phoebus' residence, near the
town of Phoebus

 

Some distance above this, about 500 poles from John's Creek, was a tract of 100 acres, patented in 1644 by William Wilkinson "minister of God's word."  "It lay in or neare Buckerowe," a term, like "Strawberry Banks," originally meaning a considerable region of country, and afterwards used to designate a single plantation.  This tract extended along Mill Creek (originally Point Comfort Creek) for 75 poles till it reached 300 acres, called in the suit below "Buckroe," "late in the tenure of Dr. Calvert, and now (1644) in the possession of Anthony Elliott."  Further above, it seems, was an Indian Spring, on the shore side of Mill Creek, about a mile and a quarter from a branch of Harris' Creek.


At the head of John's Creek was the Glebe land, lying on the north side of the present trolly car line from Hampton to the town of Phoebus. A grant to Robert Partin, in 1637, locates his lease of 40 acres as "south on the Fort field, and north towards the church," and this was the same land as Thomas Coniers', which was described, in the patent to Major Richard Moryson for Fort Field, as parted from the Glebe Land by a creek making in from Sandy Point (Soldiers' Home Point). 

 

So it seems the church in 1637, was standing somehwere in the neighborhood at the Butler School.  A new church was afterwards erected at Pembroke Farm, about 1667, and in 1727 the church in Hampton Town was erected.

Notes: 1621, November 21, Edward Bennett, a rich merchant of London, was granted a patent for a plantation upon the condition of settling two hundred emigrants. Associated with him in that patent were his brother, Robert Bennett, and his nephew, Richard Bennett, Thomas Ayres, Thomas Wiseman and Richard Wiseman; and in February, 1622, the "Sea Flower" arrived with one hundred and twenty settlers, under command of Captain Ralph Hamor, one of the Council. Among them were Rev. William Bennett and George Harrison, kinsmen of Edward Bennett. Their place of settlement was called Warrosquoyacke, or sometimes "Edward Bennett's Plantation," and was located at the place on James River known as the "Rocks," the estate of the late Dr. John W. Lawson, who for many years represented this county in the General Assembly of the State, the Second Congressional District in Congress, and this county in the late Constitutional Convention.

 *George Lee was "citizen and grocer of London," and dealt largely with Virginia.  Among the servants shipped by him were two nephews, John Jones and John Symonds.  In 1660 he sent George Underwood, of London, "his brother," to collect all dues in the hands of his "brother, Dr. William Lee," of York county, Va., "or Xopher Harris, or any other person in Virginia."  Afterwards Mr. Robert Whithaire,
of York county, Va., was his agent, with Capt. Daniel Parke as successor in case of the former's death.  In 1674 he appointed Capt. Richard Johnson,
of New Kent, his agent.  In 1645 Richard Lee, ancestor of
Gen. Robert E. Lee, and Henry Lee were residents of York county. What relations they were, if any, to George Lee does not appear. Page 34.
