JOHNSON AND ALLIED FAMILES OF NEW POQUOSON RIVER

 

The New Poquoson River seems to be a border line for Elizabeth City and Charles River Co as deeds for the New Poquoson are found in Elizabeth City Co. deeds. Seems like in 1641 the New Poquosin is also a Border for Warwick Co.

 

My Notes: See reports on Back River Johnson and Allied Families (Marke Johnson)

 

1628: The twentieth century Poquoson is a remnant of a larger area known from the first days of its settlement as the New Poquoson Parish. This colonial parish was the landed area on the north side of the Old Poquoson River. This land was opened for settlement in the year 1628 and was occupied by people from the settlement at Kecoughtan (Hampton)

 

With the organization of the colony into counties in 1634, New Poquoson became one of the five seventeenth-century parishes of Charles River County (changed to York in 1642). The present city of Poquoson was the lower precinct of this Parish.

1630, Capt. Christopher Calthorpe obtained 500 acres on the river and Calthorpe's Creek at "New Poquoson, Elizabeth City County", by order of court, April 26, 1631, for which a patent was issued July 13, 1635. [Ibid.,p. 227.

 

The boundary line between the present York County and Elizabeth City County (Hampton since 1952) is the Northwest Branch of Back River (formely the Old Poquoson) and Bethel Reservoir (formely the headwaters of the Old Poquoson).

 

The Poquoson River (formely New Poquoson), flowing into Chesapeake Bay, lies in York County.] This land, by then described as in Charles River County [York], was repatented May 6, 1636 with an additional 500 acres and on July 5,1636 he added another 100 acres adjoining as well as repatenting 100 acres which he had purchased on Waters Creek in Warwick County [Ibid.,pp.347,368. Waters Creek has been dammed to form Lake Maury, nowen closed within the part of the Mariners Museum, Newport News.]

 

Christopher Calthorpe called his plantation "Thropland" ["Thropland", in 1956 a farm of 100 acres, the property of the Sinclair and Smith families, adjoins Calthorpe Neck Road which tarverses land originally part of the plantation.] after the family estate in England.

The church building of New Poquoson Parish, later Charles Parish, dating back to 1635 [Anthony Yonge, citizen and grocer of London, in his will, Feb. 23 1635/6- Dec. 1636 (P.C.C. 118 Pile, in V XV, p. 177) bequeathed 500 pounds of tobacco to "the church of the new Poquoson" in Virginia.

 

New Poquoson Parish embraced the region between Back Creek and the [New] Poquoson River and included in its bay frontage a section in York now known as Crab Neck and Fish Neck.

 

Westward the parish probaly extended to the Warwick County line. The Parish Register is the earliest extant church record in Virginia, beginning 1644/5, when a minister for the parish was inducted (MCGC, p. 502).

 

In1692 New Poquson became Charles Parish by Act of the Assembly (see George Carrington Mason, Colonial Churches of Tidewater Virginia, Richmond, 1945, pp. 216, 229-33] stood on the Calthorpe tract and the foundation of an early church on the site is preserved.

 

In 1646 Capt. Christopher Calthorpe was amoung 8 men fined by the court " for not rendering their accounts as guardians," suggesting that Calthorpe may have married a widow (York Co. Deeds, Orders, Wills &c 2, 1645-49, p. 184).

 

He served as commissioner of York County but was replaced by order of the Governor, April 24, 1661, as he had gone southward { York Co. Deeds, Orders, Wills &c 3, 1657-62, p. 117.Southward was the territory with il-defined boundaries which lay in the region now included in the southeastern part of Virginia and the northeastern part of North Carolina. The location presumably is Perquimans Co., N.C., where in a deposition, Dec. 65, 1687, Richard Watredy, "being designed to go into the Southward about the year 1662," mentioned the "then seated Land of Collo. Caltropp" (Perquimans Co.,N.C., Deed Bk. A, #380}.

 

On Aug 13, 1661 Christopher Calthorpe, "late of the New Poquoson and now of Carolina to the South of Virginia, "gave power of attorney to Armiger Wade and William Harman of York County to execute a deed, confirmed by Ann Calthorpe (York Co. Deeds, Orders, Wills &c 3, 1657-62 p. 157.)

 

He was a member of the House of Burgesses from York County, 1644-46, 1652-53, 1660, and from Elizabeth City Conty, 1645 ( leonard, pp. 22-24, 30-31, 36, spelled Callthrop, Calthorpe, Clathropp, Caulthropp, and Coltrop.) and was captain, major and colonel of militia.

He died before April 24, 1662 when Anne Calthorpe petitioned the court for probate of " the nuncupative will of my deceased husband Coll. Xopher Calthorpe" and gave "bond with very good security" (York Co. Deeds, Orders, Wills, &c 4, pp. 162, 166). six months later she submitted an inventory which estimated the estate at 30,380 pounds of tobacco and cask. Omitted from the account was " the land here and at Southward" and she noted that she would give an account of the later when it came to "her hand".
Anne Calthorpe died Dec. 9, 1667 before her husband's estate was divided among the heirs. On Jan 21, 1667/8 the three daughters, Elinor and Barbara Calthorpe aged 21 years and upwards, and Ann Calthorpe aged 16 years and upwards, by their "loving friend Mr. William Harman," petitioned the court for a division and on Jan. 24, 1667/8, upon petition of "James Calthorpe & his sisters Mrs Elinor, Barbary & Anne Calthorpe," the court ordered that the " Estate of their Deced Father & Mother be equally divided between them. (

minister from Ulster, Ireland, was in Bermuda for a period of time and
received land in Charles River co., which later became York Co., for
transporting fourteen persons to America in 1617 in the ship "George"
including Jonathan Gerrard. (An inventory for the estate of Ralph
Gerrard was filed in York Co. in 1637, but Ralph, Sr. may never have
come to America and the will may have filed for the benefit of a son in
America.) George Keith, Clerke, and Pastor of Kinkinku; 850 acres on
Cheesman's Creek. Reverend George Keith played a prominent role in
transporting many Scotch Irish settlers to America. A 1689 for land in

William Clarke

 

William Clark/Clarke came to Virginia on the Ambrose in 1623 and on February 16, 1624, was living in Elizabeth City. He was still there in early 1625 and was identified as a 20 year old servant in William Ganey's household. On November 18, 1635 William Clark patented 100 acres of land in Elizabeth City on the New Poquoson River using two men as headrights.

This is interesting -- she doesn't list "the ancient planter" specifically.  She has seven separate entries under Edward, Mrs. Edward, "No first Name child" Edmund, Mrs. Edmund and "No First Name" under Edmund as well -- plus the seventh for another Edward Clark.

Nathaniell Clarke

 

[LSS note: Nathaniel Clarke is son of Edward Clarke, the ancient planter.  From: Linda Sparks Starr

 

NATHANIEL Clarke is the one getting the patent -- based on his father's rights as an ancient planter, not on his father's land holdings. William was THERE BEFORE the survey was run for Nathaniel -- ergo my thinking that William Clarke is older than Nathaniel Clarke. IF that's true, then William Clarke is NOT Edward's son for Nathaniel Clarke is the eldest son.  Primogeniture was the law of the land -- eldest son was the father's heir. And that's all this particular patent says. From: Linda Sparks Starr

The relationship between Edward and William is NOT known

Researchers Notes: So Capt. Christopher Wormely now owns the lands that were once Lyonell Rowlstons, who in 1632 sold lands to Edward Johnson for Luke Johnson and John Johnson. Capt. Christopher Wormely is now the neighbor of Luke Johnson and John Johnson and Nicholas Clarke is their neighbor. The point of land being used is now New Poquoson

 

Mr. Roulstons

 

Mr. Lionell Roulston sold lands to Edward Johnson of Strawberry bankes who in turn gave these lands to John Johnson and Luke Johnson in 1632. Luke Johnsons will mentioned his Uncle John Turton of West Bromwich England.

 

The Thurton or Turton names is connected to other families in this report. Unknown how or if this connects Maude Thurton-Turton daughter of John Thurton-Turton d 1609 and Grace Shelton daughter of Ralph Shelton and Prudence Calthrope. Of note is Christopher Calthorpe us a land owner by Edward Johnson of Strawberry Bankes as are John Johnson and Luke Johnson their lands are on Strawberry Banks.

Notes: 1649 Sir Thomas Lunsford arrived in Virginia in the year of our Lord, 1649. Upon his arrival he was entertained as a guest and comrade-in-arms by Col. Christopher Wormley. Elizabeth Wormley-Kemp, the Colonel's daughter, was the third wife of Sir Thomas. Their daughter, Katherine, inherited Sir Thomas's estate and was buried at the Christchurch Parish Church, Middlesox Co., VA.

My Notes: This was the same church that our Ball ancestors, Edward Ball and Keziah Ball, attended and served as Sextons, or caretakers. Their duties would include the arrangements for Communion, Baptisms, weddings and funerals. They may have also been responsible for playing the organ

 

Col. Wormley wasn't the only influential member in his family. His brother, Honorable Ralph Wormley, was one of the founders of the William and Mary College in colonial Williamsburg. Ralph also assisted in establishing Sir Thomas and his family in Virginia. His son, Honorable Ralph Wormley Jr., married his cousin and daughter of Sir Thomas, Katherine Lunsford. The title, 'Honorable', was given to the members of the House of Burgess, governing body of Virginia.

It's rumored that Sir Thomas and his brothers, Herbert and Henry were the inspiration to writer Alexander Dumas for "The Three Musketeers." This could certainly have some merit since the three fought in France before the English Civil War which ended in 1649. If this is true, a certain irony is realized in that one of Sir Thomas's great granddaughters aided in the translation of Alexander Dumas's works from french to english.

Researchers Notes: So from the above we know that Edward Johnson of Strawberry Bankes lands abutted Dictoris Christmas lands and that, Peter Starkey and Henry Freeman inherited the lands of Dictoris Christmas in 1655 in what is then York County.

 

Notes York County Formed from James City Co. and the First Edward Johnson lived on the Border (Beinge) in Elizabeth City Co. Also Christmas Dictoris Property was on the Strawberry banckes along with an Edward Johnson. They both died in what was York County in the Year 1655 and 1657: This Edward Johnson of Strawberry Bankes was 26 Years Old in the 1624-1625 Muster so a Date of Birth of about 1598-1599 is established for Edward Johnson of Strawberry Bankes

 

Notes of Interest John Johnson and Luke Johnson arrived in 1632 and Luke Johnson died in 1657 that is 25 years: Question is did Luke Johnson leave his wife alone in England for 25 years. Could he have left an illegetiment child or two behind in the Colonies?

 

Also John Johnson and Luke Johnson’s lands were by Lionel Roulston now owned by Christopher Wormeley. Where is the lands of Christopher Wormely in 1655 Colonial Virginia ?
