Haplogroup I  -The I, I1, and I1a lineages are nearly completely restricted to northwestern Europe. These would most likely have been common within Viking populations. One lineage of this group extends down into central Europe. Haplogroup I dates to 23,000 years ago or longer.

Olive is the DNA LINE of Leonard Johnson and Todd Johnson

Haplogroup I1b -This subgroup of Haplogroup I is found within the Balkans countries at it's greatest frequency and diversity. These countries probably harbored this subset of Haplogroup I as a refuge during the Last Glacial Maximum.

Turquoise is the DNA of Jeffery Michael Johnson

Haplogroup E3a - Haplogroup E3a is an Africa lineage. It is currently hypothesized that this haplogroup dispersed south from northern Africa within the last 3,000 years, by the Bantu agricultural expansion. E3a is also the most common lineage among African Americans

 

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.

Notes: The Lucas/ Locus/ Locust family may have originated in Charles City County where Elizabeth Lucie was presented by the churchwardens of Weynoke Parish for having a bastard child by an unknown father. Her son, a "molotto boy the sonne of Elizabeth Lucie dec'd," was bound to Howell Pryse on 4 December 1665. Perhaps his father was Jack (John1 Tann), "a negro servant to Mr. Rice Hoe," who was ordered freed from his service on 8 February 1665/6 by virtue of a note given him by his former master, Rice Hoe, Sr. A former servant of Hoe claimed that "Hoe had never a servt. maid but the sd Jack the Negro lay w'th her or got her w'th child" [Orders 1655-65, 601, 617, 618, 632]. One of Hoe's descendants, Howson Hooe of Prince William County, was the master of Hester Lucas, a "mulatto woman servant" whose son was bound to Hooe in 1763. Perhaps the descendants of Elizabeth Lucie and Jack were

POWELL.--Capt. Nathaniel Powell was among the first colonists at
Jamestown in 1607.  In 1619 he was Deputy Governor of Virginia, and
member of the council from 1619-1622, and was in the latter year killed,
with all his family, at
"Powell Brooke," by the Indians.  He married a
daughter of Master William Tracy.  There is a grant in 1638 to Wm. Barker,
mariner, and his associates for 1850 acres in
Charles City county, of
which 600 acres were heretofore called
Polwe-brooke and now known as
Merchant's Hope;, situated upon the south side of James River, due by
sale from John Taylor, "citizen and girdler of
London, and purchased by
him from Thomas Powell, of
Howellton, in the County of Suffolk, yeoman,
brother and lawful heir of Capt. Nathaniel Powell, late of Virginia,
deceased." 

 

In Prince George county, formerly a part of Charles City
county
, there is still standing a very old church near Brandon known as Merchant's Hope Church, which preserves the old land marks. 

 

Capt. William Powell came to Virginia with Gates in 1611, was
a member of the first House of Burgesses, July 30, 1619.  Pace first
told him of the plot revealed by Chanco to massacre the settlers; he was
aftewards employed in taking revenge on the Weyanoke and Chichahominy
Indians.  In 1626 it was reported that there were granted to and settled
by him one plantation of 200 acres and another of 550 acres in the
"territory of Tapahanna"-- a term applied to all the country below
Merchant's Hope, in "Greater Weyanoke," down to Lower Chippoakes Creek.

Notes: 1652 Jan 13: Capt. Henry Pitt patented 450 acres on Pagan Creek in Isle of Wight on 13 January 1652 for the transportation of himself and 8 persons. It is possible that some or all of the eight were his wife and children. If this is true, she didn’t live long in Virginia. He married Anne, widow of Robert Watson, about 1655.  Several years later, he died without a will. On 27 August 1666, Mrs. Anne Pitt, listed in the court records as Henry’s widow, sold Thomas Pitt, his son and heir, “all estate of every kind she had of him.” Another record appeared when Henry’s son, Thomas Pitt, requested the court to administer Henry’s estate. This was done 25 October 1666, and the next year, his widow married Capt. James Powell.

1647 era: Richard Bernard, of Petsworth, Buckinghamshire, was born in 1618, and married Anne Corderoy, born in 1622; they were licensed to be married at St. Andrews-in-the-Wardrobe
November 24, 1634(1).  Bernard's arms were a bear rampant(2).  The family is found in
York county in 1647, and that year Richard Bernard had a lease of Pryor's plantation above Yorktown.
In 1661, "Anna Bernard, now of Purton(3), in
Petsoe Parish", Gloucester county (which parish was doubtless named in honor of the Bernard family), sold Pryor's plantation, purchased by her in 1652 of Thomas Edwards, of the Inner Temple, London, gentleman, and Margaret, his wife, one of the two daughters of William Pryor, deceased; and the deed is witnessed by Francis Bernard and John Smith.  Mrs. Anne Bernard was guardian of the orphans of Col. Samuel Matthews, of Warwick county; and in 1670 Major John Smith was a guardian.  In 1653 Mrs. Anne
Bernard wrote to Walter Brodhurst(4), of
Northumberland county, a letter, in which she refers to her daughter, Anne Smith.

Notes: This is the Joseph Johnson of Archer’s hope census in 1624 and who is the land owner of lands on Bickers- Bikers and who owns lands on the Weynoke River and in Martin’s Brandon. It appears his lands are the dividing lines when several Parish lines are drawn up. Weyanoke  Parish, Martins Brandon Parish, and those that border Archer’s Hope Creek. Archers Hope is also known as Middle Plantation and other names.

 

Notes: Capt. Joseph Johnson received a patent for 567 ½ acres in Charles City County on 14 Sep 1642. This was bordered on the west by land of George Birchers, and the east by the Merchants Land, and on the south by the ponds, and on the north by the River (the James River). This land was “Due said Johnson for his fourth part of the Merchants Land as by order 23 Mar 1642”.

Of the English ancestry of the
Eppeses, all that may be definitely said is that Francis Eppes, the first
in Virginia, probably descended from a family of the name in
County Kent.
The coat of arms used by the Virginia Eppses, almost from the time of
the immigrant, is that
ascribed to Epes or Eppes, of Canterbury, Kent."
were settled and devloped we find later generations of this family occupy-
ing the foremost positions(1).

Francis Eppes, the first of his line in
Virginia and in Henrico County,
was a member of the House of Burgesses, magistrate and in 1652 was elected
to the Governor's Council.  His son John Eppes was a man of prominence in
Charles City County and his son Francis Eppes, the second (circa 1628-
1678) was for some years a magistrate in
Henrico County and lieutenant
colonel of militia; he also engaged in merchandizing.  The succeeding
generations of the Eppes family (residing in
Henrico, Charles City,
Prince George and Chesterfield Counties) were prominent office holders
and people of substantial means(2).

Notes:   William Randolph married Mary, daughter of Henry Isham (see ante) who
settled in
Henrico County, was a merchant, militia officer and bore the
distinctive "gentleman" affixed to his name.  Mrs. Randolph was also the
sister of another Henry Isham, who engaged extensively in merchandizing,
and of Mrs. Ann Eppes the wife of Colonel Francis Eppes (the third of his
name) who was a grandson of the first of the Eppes family in
Henrico.

When the revolting barons forced King John of England to meet with them at Runnymede in June of 1215 to discuss grievances, Henry de Bohun was present.  The final Charter was signed on 15 June 1215, and among those who signed as a surety was Henry de Bohun.
The
de Bohun line continued to play an important part in English affairs through many generations.  The family was a prominent one and intermarried with the highest ranking families of England.  Henry de Bohun VIII, the 4th Earl of Hereford, 3rd Earl of Essex and Constable of England, married Elizabeth Plantaganet, daughter of Edward I, King of England.  Most of the de Bohun men held various titles and many of their descendants were Knights of the Garter.  The line descended to the Randolphs through Elizabeth de Bohun whose descendant married William Randolph of Little Haughton, Northamptshire and thuse became a maternal ancestor of the Randolph men who were emigrants to the American Colony of Virginia.

The following is from the book, "The Ancestors and Descendants of John W. Randolph of Pope County, Illinois"  written by my husband's relative, Alan R. Edwards:

Notes: Of the English ancestry of the Eppeses, all that may be definitely said is that Francis Eppes, the first in Virginia, probably descended from a family of the name in County Kent. The coat of arms used by the Virginia Eppses, almost from the time of the immigrant, is that ascribed to Epes or Eppes, of Canterbury, Kent." were settled and devloped we find later generations of this family occupy-
ing the foremost positions(1).
 

Francis Eppes, the first of his line in Virginia and in Henrico County,
was a member of the House of Burgesses, magistrate and in 1652 was elected
to the Governor's Council.  His son John Eppes was a man of prominence in
Charles City County and his son Francis Eppes, the second (circa 1628-
1678) was for some years a magistrate in
Henrico County and lieutenant
colonel of militia; he also engaged in merchandizing.  The succeeding
generations of the Eppes family (residing in
Henrico, Charles City,
Prince George and Chesterfield Counties) were prominent office holders
and people of substantial means(2).

Research Notes:  Francis Epes was the grandson of Francis Epes who was certainly in the colony in 1625 for in that year he was a member of the House of Burgesses.
A patent issued to him 26 August 1635 states that the land thereby granted
him was for the "personal adventure" of himself and for the transportation
of his sons John, Francis and Thomas Epes and 30 servants.  Richard
Ward,
Senior, was the son of
Seth Ward "of Verina, in the upper parts" (Henrico)
who had a lease for 50 acres of land 30 May 1634.  One George Archer is
named as a headright in a patent to Francis Epes, 26 August 1635 for whose
importation as a servant Epes received the customary 50 acres of land.
Though positive proof is lacking it is not improbable that this George
Archer
was in some way connected with, nor improbabaly the same person as
(or the father of) George Archer who had a patent for land in
Henrico in
1665 and died about 1677 leaving a son George Archer (of the 1679 list)
and other children. 

 

The Cockes of the list were sons of Richard Cocke who had a patent for land in 1636.  "Mr. Hatcher, Senr." was William Hatcher who on 1 June 1636, received a patent for land for the importation of him-
self and three others into the colony. 
Bejamin and Edward Hatcher, of the list, were sons of this William Hatcher.  Gilbert Platt is first mentioned as a "servant" imported by Elizabeth Parker, widow, in a patent which received 12 February 1635. 

 

"John Cox, sen" (who himself had a patent for 550 acre known as "Harrstocks" [Harrowattacks or Arrowhattocks] on 29 March 1665) was doubtless a son of William Cox who on 29 November 1636 and 29 October 1637 had two patents for 150 acres each "about 2 1/2 miles above Harroe Attacks" on James River in Henrico County.  Styling himself as "John Cox, Senr. of the 1679 list conveyed land to his son William Cox. 

 

A Nicholas Pledge is mentioned as a headright in a patent to one William Clerke 29 September 1636 for land in Henrico County.  John Davis (with Robert Craddock) had a patent 15 August 163- for 300 acres on "a great swamp".  The patent mentions "Longfields" and in a patent which he received
in October 1642, for land adjoining his former patent called
"Longfields" it is stated that a portion of the land was granted for the transportation of Davis' wife Mary.  Mr. William Clerke (rendered also
Clarke) and Robert Clerke, of the list for 1679, probably had their  ancestor in one William Clerke (or Clarke) who had patents for land in
Henrico in September 1636 and May 1638. 

 

William Worsham was in Henrico certainly as early as November 1640 for in a patent granted to William and George Worsham in November 1652 it is stated that a part of the said land was sold by Seth Ward to the said William Worsham 2 November 1640.  William Worsham was the father of John Worsham, of the list, and "Mr. George Worsham", of the list, was the patentee. 

 

The Elams were represented in Henrico as early as November 1642 in the person of Robert Elam who at that date had a patent for land above Bermuda Hundred, between the lands of Thomas Sheppy and Richard Johnson and among the headrights to the patent is the name of Ann Elam.  It appears from the records that Ann, the daughter of Robert Elam, married Gilbert Elam, who appears in the list for 1679 as
"
Mr Gilbert Elam, sen".  How much earlier than September 1661 Gilbert Elam was in the colony does not appear but in that month he had a patent for land on south side of James River, between the lands of Thomas Sheppy and Richard Johnson.  At what date William Elam came into the colony is not
known.  Martin Elam had a patent in 1672.  The degree of relationship  existing between Gilbert Elam, William Elam and Martin Elam is not disclosed by the remaining records, nor is the degree of relationship existing between any one of the trio and Robert Elam given, with the exception that Gilbert married the daughter of Robert.  William Elam and Martin Elam were, however, doubtless uncle and nephew as William Elam in his will dated 18 February 1688-9 devised property to "my loving cozen Martin Elam", the term
cousin being in that day genreally applied to nephews and nieces.  Then in his will dated 7 March 1691-2, Martin Elam bequeathes several articles which, he says, were "my uncles".  Martin Elam also mentions in his will silver spoons "two of them on old Robert Elam's mark". 

 

Nicholas Perkins had a patent 30 August 1650 for land in Bermuda Hundreds stated to have
been granted "by and for the transportation of 4 persons into the colony; the names of three of them being given: "Mary Perkikns, William Owen, and Richard Hues".  One cannot but wonder if Nicholas Perkins himself was the fourth person. 

 

Major William Bellew had a patent in October 1651 while the name of William Ballow appears in the list for 1679.  The spelling of the names is different but one familiar with records of the period will realize at least the possibility of a connection between the two.

The earliest mention (so far discovered) in
Henrico County patents, and other sources, of other names which appear in the list for 1679 are:  Henry Lowne (or Lound) March 1652 a patent to himself, John Greenhough, December 1652 (mentioned as a headright in a patent granted to himself), William Baugh was a magistrate in Henrico in 1656; Francis Redford(1) had a patent in August 1659; John Milner is mentioned as a headright in the patent to Francis Redford just mentioned; Michael and Philip Turpin were sons of Michael Turpin whose will was made in July 1663 and whom the records show purchased land from William Farrar as early as 1656; George Bullington, a patent in June 1664; James Aiken (Eakin?) a patent in October 1665. 

 
Patents also appear for Thomas Batte 1665(2); Thomas Webster, October 1665;
Thomas Wells, March 1665;
John Burton March 1665-6; John Puckett, January
1665-6 (he was the father of the several Pucketts mentioned in the list for
1679); John Wilson, June 1666; Solomon Knibb (father of Samuel Knibb, of
the list) September 1667; Robert Bowman, Junior, (adjoining land of Robert
Bowman, Senior,) in September 1667; George Browninge, May 1668; Godfrey
Ragsdale, January 1668-9(3), Barthol mew Chandler, October 1671; Essex Bevill and Amy, his wife, October 1661;Richard Perrin, March 1672; John Stuard (
Stuart or Stewart) March 1672-3;
Charles Fetherston (Featherstone), September 1672; Timothy Allen, October
1673; Henry Shereman (Sherman), November 1673; Abell Gower (and also a
William Gower) was a headright to a patent granted to John Davis in April
1672; Richard Kennon probably did not come into the colony until some time
after 1665;
William Randolph came to Virginia about 1673(1); John Pleasants
about 1665; William Byrd about 1674; the Ishams about 1656; Thomas Chamber-
laine appears twice as a headright to a patent granted to Charles Feather-
stone in 1672;
John Goode came "to Virginia prior to 1660" (according to
Goode's "Virginia Cousins"); Abraham
Womack (as the name Womecke is general-
ly rendered) was in Virginia as early as 1674 in which year a dispute over
the property of his brother William
Womack was settled by the General Court
Giles Carter appears first as a beneficiary under the will of James Crewe
in 1676(2).

   Of the remaining 83 names in the list for 1679 all that can be positively
said in this connection is that their representatives were certainly living
in Henrico at the time the records begin in 1677.  It is no doubt true,
however, that many of them, or their fathers, were in the colony at a
considerably earlier date; this seems cir-

Henrico Co., which was recorded in Henrico Court 1 December 1646, and the
land conveyed to Batte adjoined the land said Ragsdale lived on.  On 18
May 1638 John Cookney had two patents for land in
Henrico one of 20 acres
"being a swamp within a neck of land" and the other for 150 acres adjoining
Joseph Chadd and Richard Taylor.

   (1) A Richard Radford (the form used in pronouncing Redford) is
mentioned as a headright in a patent granted
William Hatcher June 1, 1636.

   (2) Thomas Batte and Henry Batte sons of Mr. John Batte, deceased, had
patent 29 April 1665 [or 1668] for 5878 acreas, 2 rods, 8 poles, on south
side James River in Appomattox in
Charles City County beginning at head

1650 and was for some years a prominent official in
Henrico County.  For

Thomas Branch (of the 1679 list) and Christopher Branch, Junior,
were son and grandson of Christopher Branch of the 1624 list; Edward and
Thomas Osborne grandsons of Thomas Osborne, of the 1624 list; William
Harris of 1624 list,
Thomas Shippey was probably the son of Thomas Sheppy
of 1625 and Joseph Royall (of 1679) a son or grandson of Joseph Royall
of 1624.cumstantially true of the Watkinses, Jeffersons, Strattons, Childerses,
Clays(1) and several others.

   The total destruction of the
Henrico records prior to 1677 and the
notable gaps in the files after that year, together with the fact that so
many of the land patents which are stated to have been granted for the
transportation or importation of persons into the colony fail to give the
names of such headrights, makes it almost impossible to reach final con-
clusions in a study such as this.  Nevertheless the reamining records have
been pretty thoroughly searched with the above results.  Even these should
not be considered "final" except in the rare instances in which the man is
stated to have been the immigrant ancestor of the family bearing his name.
There are no doubt hidden away in the bodies of later deeds and patents
much interesting information relative to a number of the persons whose
names appear in the above lists and it is hoped that this tentative general
study may encourage those who are personally interested to work over them
and publish the results of their research.

   Having "discovered" (in so far as it is possible at this time) the
names of the early settlers and residents in
Henrico the questions arise
"what were they", "who were they", from the points of view of economic
and social history.

1655 June 4: "The final establishment of Martin's Brandon as a separate parish was brought about by a Charles City court order of 4 June 1655, issued under authority of the General Assembly. The order read: "'… according to a former order of the assembly that Martin's Brandon Neck vidzt from Ward's Creek to Chepokes Creeke and the inhabitants therein shall henceforth be an absolute pish (parish) of themselves with all of the immunities and privileges of a pish without relacon toWeynoke pish or any other pish

"The last known Martin's Brandon church stood in the present village of Burrowsville, about three-eighths of a mile east of Ward's Creek on the south side of Route 10, nearly opposite the existing Brandon Episcopal Church. A field still called Church Pasture, about 100 yards southeast of the road leading into Brandon Plantation and less than one-fourth mile southeast of a small branch of Upper Chippokes Creek is believed by many students of Colonial history to have been the site of the original church." 

"The lower section of Weyanoke Parish was cut off to form the Parish of Martin's Brandon…" http://www.andyblackard.com/HTML/EarlyBlackardNeighborhoods/PrinceGeorgeVA/MartinsBrandon.html

Notes: Upper Chippoakes Creek is the lands of John Johnson son of John Johnson Yeoman and of Edward Travis of James City. So these lands will be in the Martin Brandon Parish, formed from the Weyanoake Parish. Very interesting.

Notes: Weyanoke River which forms the Majority of Weyanoke Parish: is where the Lands of Capt. Joseph Johnson and lands of Capt. Jesse Johnson are on the Weynoake River, which is also the home of Henry Rowen of Mathews Creek and one William Eaton, whose lands are on Weyanoake River, which will form the New Lands of Nansemond County.

Notes: Capt Joseph Johnson's, some of his lands will be in the Weynoake Parish as will some of the lands of John Johnson (2) off John Johnson the Yeoman and brother in Law Edward Travis these will be the lands on Upper Chipoakes Creek.

Then when the new Parish of Martins Brandon forms from the lower section of Weyanoake Parish; John Johnson and Edward Travis's lands will go into Martins Brandon Parish, which forms late in 1702 to lands in Prince George County. But in 1652 Upper Chipoakes Creek will fall into Surry County when it forms.

Notes: Capt. Joseph Johnson of Charles City his lands in Bicker or Bikers in 1723 will still be in Charles City County.

Notes: Capt Joseph Johnson of Charles City will also own lands that go into Martins Brandon and on into Prince George Co. when it forms in 1702-1704

Notes

This horrid little entry, so funny in 1941, again throws a clear light on the childlike 17th century mind. The false dignity of the big words. The spelling of 'woemen' suggests thousands of years of petty annoyances beginning with the sufferings of Father Adam. There is the suggestion that the builders of the new ducking stool had Goody Spencer and Goody Goodale in mind all the while and that this celebration was to equal the launching of a ship. The tide at Westover is about 7 or 8 feet. The payment of the charges the final touch of malicious virtue. B.F.

Abstract. "The deposicon of Susan English being 30 yeares of age or thereabouts exa'ed and sworne saith".

Susan English states that she was a hired servant unto Mrs Sara Hoe about 4 years past. She tells of difficulties Mrs Hoe had in manageing the negro Jack. Doubtless not a word of it true, for had what she said been true Mrs Hoe would have set Jack free at once and been rid of him. The very fact that these depositions were made to enable Rice Hoe Junr to keep the negro gives the lie to a good deal in the deposition of Margaret Barker and everything in the deposition of Susan English. As for what the neighbors thought of Jack see page above.

Patent records show all of them were neighbors of the future Lt. Col.  Notes: Lt. Col. DANIEL CLARKE of Windsor  by Linda Sparks Starr, OCT 1999

 

28 JAN 1662 patent to Daniel Clarke reads:  "1000 acs being a neck of land lying between Old Mans Cr on N.Ely side & Queens Cr on the Sly side; 698 acres at the head of Queens Cr between Seller run & fishing run in Charles City Co. Granted to Capt. Tho: Stegg 24 NOV 1653 & by him sold to sd CLARKE." [6] This last reference doesn't give a specific purchase date; Daniel Clarke MAY HAVE purchased the land well before the patent to Capt. Stegg was finalized.  Notes: Lt. Col. DANIEL CLARKE of Windsor  by Linda Sparks Starr, OCT 1999

 

1663 March 17: One Daniel Clarke patented 200 acres on the North side of the "Northernmost branch of Seaverne in Mockjack Bay" (now Mobjack Bay) 17 MAR 1663. The bottom line reads: "Granted to Abra Moone 20 Jul 1652 & by him sold to sd Clarke." [10] This fell into Gloster (as the name is spelled in patent records) County for a later patent to Robert Colemen mentions "from land of Dan'll Clark ... to said swamp being a S br of Severne." [11] Nothing found so far specifically ties this Daniel to the Lt. Col. other than the future Lt. Col. is the only "other" Daniel Clarke patenting land in this timeframe. .  Notes: Lt. Col. DANIEL CLARKE of Windsor  by Linda Sparks Starr, OCT 1999

 

1663/4 it is "MR. Daniel Clarke who is ordered to deliver to Robt Potter one bale of Dowlas, pretended as security for passage of Potter to Capt. John Whitty, Mr. Anthony Wyatt having obliged himself to Whitty." [12] In the colonial period, "Mister" was a term of respect reserved for "men of high standing in their community, who had established themselves as gentlemen of integrity." [13] Also, juries were chosen from landowners, and serving on the jury was often the first job for future office holders.  IF it's the same Daniel in the next reference, he won the court case, but lost his title of respect:  Notes: Lt. Col. DANIEL CLARKE of Windsor  by Linda Sparks Starr, OCT 1999

 

April 1664 "Judgt to Danniell Clarke against Mr. Hachaliah Horner minister for 2950 lb tobo due by bill". [14] Again, it's "Mr. Danniell Clarke foremen" of two juries in 1663/4. [15] But it's back to "merely" Daniell Clarke circa 1664 in "Judgt to Daniell Clarke agst Jeffrey Monford security for appearance of Willm Hitchman for 410 lbs tobo to be pd Oct 10th next, except that Monford produce the person of Hitchman to answers etc." [16] And 1664/5 "Non suit to Jas Mason agt Danl Clarke."; [17]  "Danl Clarke ord to forwith render up to James Mason 7 1/2 bbl corn 'wch the sd Mason laid up in the sd Clarks loft.' Also that Clarke allow Mason a discount of 708 lb tobo from debt due." [18] :  Notes: Lt. Col. DANIEL CLARKE of Windsor  by Linda Sparks Starr, OCT 1999

This was "Rec in Cur" -- Latin translated "recognized in Court" -- by Daniel and Frances Clarke 3 AUG 1665. Thus we have the given name of Daniel's (presumably first) wife. :  Notes: Lt. Col. DANIEL CLARKE of Windsor  by Linda Sparks Starr, OCT 1999

 

"Daniell Clarke of Oldmans Creeke planter sells to Thomas Proter (sic) for 800 lbs tobo and 7 bbl of Indian corn, a parcel of land, acreage not shown, 'joyneing to a horse path that goes to James towne,' beginning at a stake that stands in Bellington's field [prob Bullington], running N into the woods, then W to Oldmans Creeke, then down the creek to the horse path." [20] Ditto the witnesses and signers.  Notes: Lt. Col. DANIEL CLARKE of Windsor  by Linda Sparks Starr, OCT 1999

 

20 JUL 1665 "Daniel Clarke gent of Windsor C.C.Co. sells to Willm Garret planter, for 1200 lb tobo 100 acres that adj[oins] the horse path that goes to 'James Citty', adj. land of Neale St Cleare, the land of Tho: Porter as set out by patent etc." [22] This time the witnesses are Tho: Porter and Wm Collingwood; again Daniel and Frances Clarke "Rec. in Cur" 3 AUG 1665. "Daniell Clarke Gent" obtained a revised patent 25 JUL 1665 for "1000 acs being a neck lying in between Old Man Cr ... granted to sd Clarke 28 JAN 1662 ..." [23]  .  Notes: Lt. Col. DANIEL CLARKE of Windsor  by Linda Sparks Starr, OCT 1999

 

1665 Oct 18: Sadly, Edw'd Brureton, "serv't to Mr. Daniell Clarke of the parish of Weynoke" was found dead in the woods by Richard Bradford, joyner, and Charles Beale, seaman. 18 9ber (November) 1665 the Coronor's Jury found the cause was exposure to "the extremity of cold happening on the 17th of 9ber" and by means of his having been "a sickly man, and diseased w'th the scurvey". [24] Members of the jury included Jeoffry Montford, Corel' Debull, Neal Cinclear, (sic) James Cooper and Francis Story.  Notes: Lt. Col. DANIEL CLARKE of Windsor  by Linda Sparks Starr, OCT 1999 

 

1669 ERA: By inference we learn that Frances died "by 1669", and probably a lot closer to 1666, the year Richard Cocke Sr. of Bremo died. The exact year of Daniel Clarke’s marriage to the widow Mary Ashton of Lt. Col. Cocke is now lost; but  "wealthy widows" with young children did not wait long to remarry. Records cited below, including a statement within the will of Mary Ashton Hill Cocke’s brother, show Daniel Clarke was guardian of Mary's son, Edward Cocke, in 1669.  As was common in colonial times, a step-father was often appointed guardian over the property of his step-sons.  Although the specific appointment is lost, the requisite security bond is the topic of much contention. Daniel appears to have thought his word (and wealth) was sufficient, he didn't need a co-signer on the security bond for him as guardian of the children's inheritance. Notes: Lt. Col. DANIEL CLARKE of Windsor  by Linda Sparks Starr, OCT 1999

 

Notes: It know appears we have 3 Half Families Hill, Cocke and Clarke off Mary Ashton not to include Cocke children off the wife Temperance Bailey whose mother Ceciley Reynolds has numerous half children: Bailey, Jordan, Farrar, De  Montague,

 

 

28 NOV 1672. Daniel Clarke appears among the Justices of the Charles City Co. Court Notes: Lt. Col. DANIEL CLARKE of Windsor  by Linda Sparks Starr, OCT 1999

 

1 OCT 1677 "Ordered that Mr. Daniel Clerk (sic) as having the estate and being guardian to the Orphans of Lt. ___ COCKE, dec'd be referred for the further and better consideration of the court." [28] Daniel ignored these orders and no one in Henrico Co. seems overly concerned for the next notice isn't dated until 20 AUG 1681: "William Randolph, clerk, is by this Court ordered and appointed to request and demand of Lt. Coll. Daniell Clarke further security (there being at present only his own bond) for the estate belonging to the orphans of Lt. Coll. Richd. Cocke decd. and if he denyes the same ... is then hereby fully impowered and ordered to sue the sd. Lt. Coll. Clarke at Charles City County Court ..." [29] Apparently Daniel was still not moved to act for 20 AUG 1683: "The former Order of this Worthy Court giving full power & authority to Capt. William Randolph to Sue & implead Lt. Coll. Daniell Clarke if he refuses to give Security acccording to law for the estate belonging to the orphans of Lt. Coll. Richd. Cock dec'd is hereby Continued and Confirmed." [30] Although the actual date of Daniel's death is lost, we estimate it as late spring / summer of 1684 based on: AUG 1684 "Whereas Lt. Col. Dan'l Clark Guard: to the Orphns of Lt. Col. Richd. Cock, dec'd is lately dead & hath given no security for the estate belonging to the sd Orphns (for which this Worthy Court is answerable) but his own bond, Capt. Willm Randolph is hereby requested & appointed to demand of the relict of the sd Lt. Col. Clerk (sic) sufficient security for the estate belonging to the sd Orphns ..." [31 Notes: Lt. Col.

1680 deed, mentioned by James P. C. Southall, [38] in which William Cocke names his "father-in-law Daniel Clarke" (also means step-father in colonial period) hasn't surfaced, Notes: Lt. Col. DANIEL CLARKE of Windsor  by Linda Sparks Starr, OCT 1999

3 FEB 1680 "Lt. Col." Daniel's last appearance in Charles City Co. records is when he is listed among the Justices present at Court "Holden at Flowerdehundred" [27] located on the south bank of the James.  Notes: Lt. Col. DANIEL CLARKE of Windsor  by Linda Sparks Starr, OCT 1999

 

FEB 1685 The widow apparently was equally stubborn; Henrico Co. Orphans Court records indicate Randolph was reduced to obtaining a judgement in the Charles City Court agst Daniel Clarke’s estate for 500 pds sterling bond as security for the orphan's inheritance.[32] Notes: Lt. Col. DANIEL CLARKE of Windsor  by Linda Sparks Starr, OCT 1999

 

5th August 1689 "The Court of Henrico by Capt. Wm Randolph their attorney sets forth that Lt. Coll. Dan. Clarke having estate belonging to the orphans of Lt. Coll. Cocke, dec'd, in his hands, did on removal to this county, carry the estate with him, for which he posted bond of  £500. Henrico Court obtained judgement for same, and that there is yet due to two said orphans 16,228 ½ lbs tobo. and beg bond be reduced to this figure. Court orders Richard and Edward, the orphans of said Cocke, take and receive the goods and chattels of said Clarke, dec'd, to sum of 16,228 ½ lbs tobo., to be equally divided as they are now of age." [33] From other records (cited below) we learn the widow's name is Mary and she and Richard Sr. had two other sons -- William and John .  Notes: Lt. Col. DANIEL CLARKE of Windsor  by Linda Sparks Starr, OCT 1999

 

 

The future Lt. Col. Richard Cocke (c1600-1666) lived in Henrico Co., on the north side of the James River near the head of Turkey Island. His original patent, which includes the 622 acs commonly called "Bremo", is dated 10 OCT 1652. 100 of the 2,482 total acres was "due by patent to Temp. Bayley 20 SEP 1620". [34] Temperance Bayley was three when her father died; researchers [35] theorize this patent indicates Temperance Bayley was the first wife of Lt. Col. Richard Cocke. Richard'Cocke’s will, probated in Henrico Co. 1666, names all his children.

The first two sons, Thomas Cocke b. circa 1638/9 and Richard Cocke b. 10 DEC 1639 [36] are known to be sons of the first wife whose given name is not recorded in extant records. It is uncertain which wife was mother of daughter, Elizabeth.

Mary Aston is on record as mother of William Cocke, (cited below) Richard and Edward. Son John is named between William and the second Richard in their father's will; thus he is Mary Aston’s son as well.  And "yes", the first Richard Cocke did have two sons named Richard; the first is referred to as "Richard the elder" in the will which confused earlier researchers who took it to mean he was the eldest son. Mary's son is referred to as "Richard the younger" or "Richard Jr." in later records.  Mary Aston was pregnant with Edward Cocke when her husband wrote his will for he referred to her son, Richard, as "my now Youngest Son".  Thus Edward Cocke was born circa 1666/7. Mary Aston and Richard Cocke’s two oldest sons were appointed co-executors of the will; Mary was also appointed "Guardian of all my Younger Children born of her." .  Notes: Lt. Col. DANIEL CLARKE of Windsor  by Linda Sparks Starr, OCT 1999

 

20 AUG 1690 "____ Cocke, brothers to the sd Orphns And the sd Orphns living in another county Mr. Richd. Cocke is requested to give them notice to appear at the next court held for this county to give their severall discharges for the same." [37]  .  Notes: Lt. Col. DANIEL CLARKE of Windsor  by Linda Sparks Starr, OCT 1999

 

13 OCT 1693 William Cocke does name his mother in his will dated. Probated in Henrico Co. VA 1 FEB 1693/4,[39] he requested burial next to his deceased wife and children. William Cocke names his son William and daughters, Mary and Elizabeth and requests "The twenty shillings that I received of my mother Mrs. Mary Clark to buy my daughters a ring, to do so when they are of age. Children to stay with my wife until of age or with my mother Mrs. Mary Clarke. Rest of estate to my wife who is executrix." Witnesses to the will are: D. Clarke, Richard Cocke Jr., Mary Horner, Mary Cocke.  Meanwhile in Charles City Co. 3 APR 1694 "Mrs. Mary Clarke consents to pay for a summons with which she was served by Mrs. Cock, Amn'x of William Cock." [40] The same day Mary Clarke acknowledged deed of land to her son Edward Cocke. .  Notes: Lt. Col. DANIEL CLARKE of Windsor  by Linda Sparks Starr, OCT 1999

 

Notes: Mary Aston is reported  to be the wife of Nicholas Hill and then to LTC Richard Cocke and then the wife of LTC Daniel Clarke: She is the daughter of LTC Walter Aston and a 3rd cousin to Peter Aston in the Colonies so there are many ½ siblings here again. Temperance Bayley was married to ? and then to LTC Richard Cocke. Her mother is Ceciley Reynolds Bayley,

BOLLING. - In an old volume of "the laws of Virginia", known as the "Purvis Collection",
are entries which show that it once belonged to Robert Bolling, the emigrant:  "Robt. Bolling,
the son of John and Mary Bolling, of all
Halloway's Barking Parish, Tower street, London, was
born the 26th day of December, 1646, and came to Virginia October ye 2d, 1660: & in the yeare 75 married Jane, the daughter of Thomas Rolfe, gent., by whom he had one son, John Bolling, Born ye 27th day of Jany, 1676.  She  dying he married a second venture Anne, ye daughter of Major John Stith, in ye yeare 1681, by whem he hath Robt Bolling, Born Janr ye 25th, 1682, ditto Stith Bolling, Borne March ye 28th, 1686, ditto Edward Bolling borne ye first day of October, 1687, ditto Anne Bolling born ye
22d of July, 1690, ditto Drury Bolling borne ye 21st day of June, 1695, ditto Thomas Bolling
borne ye 30th day of March 1697/8, & Agnes Bolling borne ye 30th November 1700, and that god
almighty may bless these Blessings shall be the continuall prayer of theire father Robt.
Bolling".
   In another place in the same handwriting of the period is:  "These may certifye all persons
to know that in the yeare one thousand six Hundred ninety & nine, there was
in Charles City
County, in Virginia,
men, women, children, & slaves, the number three thousand nine hundred
and fifty was listed P Robt Bolling then sherr."
   The book descended to the Robert Bolling who wrote the Bolling Memoirs, as there is written
on a leaf:  "Ex Libris Robert Bolling, jun. 1764".  There is also this item of family interest
evidently written by him:  "Robert Bolling(1) and Anne Bolling, her maiden name was Meri-
wether(2), [had issue] Mary, married William Stark 1727/8, Elizabeth -- James Munford 1727/8,
Anne - John Hall, Lucy - Peter
Randolph, Jane - Hugh Miller, Martha - Richd Eppes, Susanna -
Alexander Bolling, Robert - Mary Tabb".

BOLLING, COCKE, STITH, ETC.  Queries by E. M. Heyl, Colonel U.S. Army, Inspector-General's
Office, Room 401, Pullman Building, Chicago, ILL.
   Robert Bolling, born 1682, died 1749, married 
Ann Cocke, 1706. 

What were the names of Ann Cocke's parents, and when did the family come to Virginia?
   Robert Bolling, born 1646, died 1709, married Anne Stith, 1681. 

The names of Anne Stith's parents, also when they settled in Virginia, is desired.

Did Mary Walke, or Mary Walker, marry, 1756, Charles Carter, of "Shirley", Virginia?

[Anne Cocke was probably the daughter of Richard Cocke 3, the younger of Bremor (Richard 1,
of Malvern Hills, Richard 2, of Bremor).  At Bremor, in Henrico county, James River, I
observed two badly shattered stones with the following inscriptions:

Here lyes Interr'd the Body of
Richard Cocke
Son of Richard Cocke of B * *
He was Born the 10th day
* * ecember 1639 and departed
* * * ife on the 20th November * *

County of Rappahannock.
She was born the 23d day of Jan:
1675 and departed this life the 24th
day of April 1705 Aged
30 * * 3 months 1 Day.

Anne Stith was daughter of Col. John Stith, of
Charles City county, who patented land there
in 1663; was lawyer, burgess, etc.  For account of Stith family, see Richmond Critic for
September 27, 1890.
   The Critic, June 18, 1888, states that Charles Carter, of "Shirley", married, first, Mary
W. Carter, daughter of Charles Carter, of "Cleve", and Mary Walke, his wife. - EDITOR.]

2.        WILLIAM STARK'S name appears in the records of York county as a justice till 1732,
after which a man of hte same name appears in the records of
Prince George county.  I think it reasonable to suppose they were the same person.  his migration may have been due to a second marriage.  According to a memorandum of Robert Bolling, Jr., in an old "collection of Virginia laws", William Stark married Mary Bolling, daughter of Robert and Anne Bolling. in 1727.  Bristol parish register shows that she was born January 28, 1708.  William Stark's will was dated in 1755 (Hen. Stats.), and the family record shows that he had issue:  5, Rebecca married 1st Dr. John Ravenscroft (see advrt. in Virginia Gazette, December 8, 1774), and had issue John Ravenscroft, M.D., and Jane, who married Daniel Fisher; married 2dly George McMurdo, and had issue Charles J.

member of the council from 1619-1622, and was in the latter year killed,
with all his family, at
"Powell Brooke," by the Indians.  He married a
daughter of Master William Tracy.  There is a grant in 1638 to Wm. Barker,
mariner, and his associates for 1850 acres in
Charles City county, of
which 600 acres were heretofore called
Polwe-brooke and now known as
Merchant's Hope;, situated upon the south side of James River, due by
sale from John Taylor, "citizen and girdler of
London, and purchased by
him from Thomas Powell, of
Howellton, in the County of Suffolk, yeoman,
brother and lawful heir of Capt. Nathaniel Powell, late of Virginia,

1845 Appomattox County formed from lands of Campbell County, Charlotte, Prince Edward and Buckingham County:

1850 City of Petersburg formed  from Dinwiiddle, Prince  George and Chesterfield Co.

 

Capt Joseph Johnson lands will be the dividing point for several County line changes and several Parish Changes. His lands and home with wife Margaret are first reported in Archers Hope also know as Coney’s Burrough, which is associated with the Middle Plantations which have a border with Queens Creek. He then is found in Charles City County in 1639, 15 years later and then again in 1642 records. The lands that he owns on Merchant’s lands will go from Weyanoke Parish to Martin’s Brandon Parish in 1655.

 

The lands Joseph Johnson owns on the Weyanoke River will mostly make up the area of Nansemond County in the era of 1650, as outlined by the Deeds of Lands on Mathews Creek of the Weyanoke River this is where we find Henry Rowen the first husband of Alice who remarried one John Watson and begat the daughter Sarah Watson who married one Michael Johnson who died 1718 on Tuckahoe Creek.

 

Joseph Johnson’ lands in Martin’s Brandon will mostly be found in 1655 in the Martin Brandon’s Parish formed from the Lower lands of Weynoke Parish and then his lands at Merchants Hope will be in  Westover Parish of Charles City County in 1655, but of note is land owners of Martin’s Brandon can also be traced to Isle of Wright County in this time era. In 1702 these lands of Joseph Johnson of Martin’s Brandon will be in Prince George County. Also of note is Weyanoke Parish is dissolved in 1720 and reformed into Westover Parish.

 

Now what is also of interest is the William Justice or William Justus who was born about 1625 in, Charles City County, Virginia he married in 1655 in Weynoke Parish, Charles City County, Virginia to Mary Frame or Freame and he died February 03, 1663/64 in, Charles City County, Virginia. This William Justice in Nov 1665 is granted 143 acres in Weynock at the heads on the other side of Kittwan Creek, William Justices son is one Justinian Justice Sr born abt 1656 in Charles City, Westover Parish, Virginia and died 1720 in, Charles City County. Justinian Justice was married 1687 to a Mary Cannon born abt 1658 of Charles City County. Of note is John Cannon in 1665 has a land grant for 80 acres on Kittawan Creek on the Back of the Weynock running by David Jones lines.

The reason this is of Interest is in 1755 Oct. 1: Lunenburg Co. Will Book 1 pg 163:  I Justina Justice in the County of Lunenburg being very sick and weak in body but of perfect mind and memory. Thanks be to almighty God for it calling into mind the mortality of my body and knowing that it is ordained this is my last will and testament that is to say principally and first of all. I give and recommend my soul into the hands of God that gave it and for my body I recommend it to the earth to be buried in a Christian manner at the discreation of my Executors, nothing doubting but at the General Resurrection I shall receive the same again by the Mighty power of God and as touching such worldly Estate wherewith I hat pleased God to bless me in this life. I give and dispose of the same in the following manner and form.

Impris it is my will and I do order that in the first place all my just debts and funeral charges be payed and satisfied.

Item I give and bequeath unto Mary my Dearly beloved wife

Third part of my estate item is one horse and side saddle, Item one bed and furniture and that my Executors make a lawful deed to one hundred acres of land to William Justice Jr. in the County of Charles City.

Item I give unto my three daughters Viz. Elizabeth, Sarah and Mary the other thirds of my estate to be equally divided amongst them at the dicsretion of my Executors. I likewise constitute make and ordain my belove Wife and last will and ISAAC JOHNSTON my only and sole executors of this my last will and testament and I do hereby utterly disallow rvoke and disannul all and ever other Testaments wills legacies and Executors by me in any ? before this time named Willed and bequeath.

In witness where of I have hereunto set my hand and seal this day and year above written. Signed Justina Justice by His mark. Subscribers Viz:: Wm Scott, Samuel Davis, and WILLIAM JOHNSON : At a Court held for Lunenburg Co. 3rd day of Aug 1756

Last Will and Testament of Justina Justice deceased was exhibited in Court my Mary Justice the Extrix therein named and the same was proved by the oaths of all witnesses thereto Subscribed and Ordered to be recorded and on motion of the said executrix who made oath according to law, Certificate is granted her for obtaining a probate of the said will in due form of Law. She giving her Bond and Scurity whereupon she together with Lazuraz Williams and Matthew Williams her securities. Entered into and acknowledged Bond for the said Executrix duly faithful Execution of the said will Reserving Liberty to ISAAC JOHNSON the executor therin name to join in the probate with her when he shall hereafter think fit. Teste Clement Read. Cl.

This Isaac Johnson is the son of Michael Johnson who died 1718 on Tuckahoe Creek in Henrico Co. Va.  This Justina Justice of Lunenburg County is a Great grandson of William Justice and Mary Freame.

Other notes of interest is John Merryman and a James Merrman are also connected to Weynoke River as in 1638 May 10: Charles City County John Merryman.150 acres. Adjoining to Weyanoke and also adjoining to the land of Perce Lennon.

Benjamin Johnson married to Phebe Merriman, she is connected to John Flippen and to Mcadoo's of Humphreys County and also to one John Scott.

 

Another note of Interest is Edward Hatcher 2nd his mother is the off spring of Capt John Ward of Martin Brandon’s whose lands will be in Weynoake Parish and in Westover Parish prior to the formation of Martin’s Brandon Parish. Edward Hatcher 2nd his lands in 1718 Jan 22 Edward Hatcher Jr.: 223 acres on both sides of Tuckahoe's Main Creek on the North Side of the River:

 

This is the families of Tappy Moore, Hudson, Robertson’s, Hatchers in Dickson and Humphreys County which also connects families of Elam, Farmer, Burton, Stovall, Turpins, Wards,

 

James Merryman in 1643 Dec 20: Charles City County: 100 acres called by the name of Martin Brandon opposite against Weyanoake.

Also of interest is several property transactions for James Bell are in Charles City County. He bought lands from Justinian Justis by deed admitted to Record July 1748

James Bell is married to Martha WATSON Niece of SARAH WATSON JOHNSON wife of Michael Johnson: James Bell and Martha s child is identified John Bell and John Bell. Source http://www.virginians.com/topics/3576.htm  

Another point of Interest is John Johnson Yeoman and Joseph Johnson are on Archers Hope Creek where we find one Gabriel Holland Yeoman. The next generation of his line will be found in lands of Nansemond County and in Maryland. The 3rd Generation off his lines will be Michael Holland born 1666 Nansemond County Va. of Tuckahoe Creek and owns lands in St. Peter’s and St. Paul’s Parish of Hanover Co. in 1720 era. Michael Holland is married to Judith Merryman ( grand-daughter of John Merryman whose lands are on the Weynoke River)

 

The Reported Children of Judith Merryman and Michael Holland:

Ann Holland born 1715

Elizabeth Holland: married 1734  Pouncey Anderson : She died 1794 Nov 22 St. Martin's Parish Louisa County: Their son Richard Anderson will intermarry in to the family of Nicholas Johnson and Elizabeth Hudson thru their daughter Mary Johnson

Mercy Holland: reported to have married William Colvard on Jan 2 1759 Goochland Co.

Dr. Thomas Gerrard is the cousin to the mother of Gabriel Holland of Archers Hope. Gabriel Holland was born on February 13, 1596 to John and Mary (Mollenax) Holland of whose families are found in Nansemond Co. and in Maryland. What is the connection between Gabriel Holland’s MOTHER Mary Mollenax to Lady Jane Molyneux wife of Thomas Farley, they too are cousins.
