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.

What relationship if any to Thomas Osborne

Notes: Job Chandler Families

 

Notes: Church Point

 

So we know from the Above that Adam Thorowgood has brought in 1628 Richard Johnson and a Thomas Johnson then he brought 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.

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 September, 1609. pg Page 97.

Warrosquoyacke RIVER PAGAN CREEK-PAGAN RIVER- NEW TOWN HAVEN RIVER Johnson and Allied Families

 

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.

 

On the day the patent last mentioned was granted, Arthur Swaine, Captain Nathaniel Basse and others, undertook to establish another plantation in the same neighborhood. Captain Basse came over in person and his plantation was known as "Basse's Choice," and was situated on Warrosquoyacke (now Pagan) River. http://www.rootsweb.com/~vaisleof/history.htm

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
