42. THOMAS POINDEXTER60,61,62 was born on 2 October 1705 in New Kent County, Virginia.2,8,15 He died on 8 May 1796 at the age of 90 in Fredericksville Parish, Louisa County, Virginia.2,8,15

Bible record gives date of birth as 5 Jul 1705.

[Given the apporximate birth years of the children, I would think this marriage date as before 1723, as usually seen, is a bit too early. Circa 1728 would seem more realistic.]

The following records are likely those of this Thomas. By 1758, Thomas III was old enough to create these records, but he had apparently left Louisa Co as he married in Goochland Co in 1760. However there was also a nephew, Thomas in Louisa - son of John & Christian Poindexter.
"Extracts from Louisa Guardian Settlements Booklet", 1751-1766:
p.31 Humphrey Bickley, executor of the Will of Charles Bickley. Thomas Poindexter was a witness. Probate 28, Mar 1758.

p.137 Robert Fleming, Executor of Robert Fleming, dec'd., probate 14 Aug 1764. Signed by Thomas Poindexter..
The Comstock book states he was Justice of Louisa Co 1763-73. The Bond for Thomas Wyatt in 1758 indicates he may have been Justice a bit longer.

At this point, the Poindexter: A Norman Family book says Thomas Poindexter apparently never married. Says he was still living in 1765. This is of course, very wrong.

I do not have the reference source for the following:
6 Mar 1765 Thos. Poindexter gave deposition and stated he was then age 60 years. He said he had nothing to gain or lose. He stated that Thomas Poindexter [his father] had married Sarah Crafford, daughter of David Crafford of New Kent Co. VA. David Crafford had deeded 500 acres to his daughter Sarah on 21 May 1691. She had later intermarried with James Brechin.

"British Mercantile Claims; 1775-1803" [These claims involved debts owed British merchants when British property was confiscated during the Revolution. Not until around 1800 were special agents assigned to investigate individual debts and determine the status. The records found in the Public Record Office, London.]
Vol. 15, p.201-202 1971
Thos. Poindexter, Louisa. £45.12.5 by bond, Fredericksburg Store. There were two persons of this name in Louisa before the war. One of them died about two years ago, a very old and a very poor man, and left no estate of any kind. He was never able to have paid this debt. An order of the Court of Louisa exempted him from the payment of county and public levies as early as 1768. [obviously this Thomas] The other Thomas Poindexter was always worth a very considerable estate and at the commencement of the war he had no less than fifty slaves in his possession, besides lands and other personal property. he moved to Kentucky in 1787 and died in Franklin County in 1797 and left property sufficient to pay his debts. It is impossible the suppose the debt was due from him. John Poindexter, clerk of Louisa, is a relation of both Thomas Poindexters.

THOMAS POINDEXTER and SARAH (?Bond) VEALE were married before 1723.2 SARAH (?Bond) VEALE63,64, daughter of John VEALE and Deliverance [VEALE], was born about 1707 in Virginia.

Please note that this is not the usual set of "accepted" parents for Sarah Veale. My own interpretation and opinion of the records follows.

Sarah, wife of Thomas Poindexter [1705-1795] may have been Sarah Bond Veale or Bondaville according to some. There are various stabs at spelling Sarah's surname, possibly derived from the fact she named a son Bondville or Bond Veale Poindexter. Her parents have been said to be Bond Veale and Elizabeth Gosling [of Westmoreland & Prince William Cos. VA] but this has not been proved, and in fact the evidence I have seen concerning Bond Veale would indicate he was more of an age to be a brother or cousin to Sarah rather than her father. I have never seen a date or primary source for the supposed marriage of a Bond Veale and Elizabeth Gosling. [I've never seen any authority for her birth year and it is likely an estimate placing her age near her husband's.] and all references seem to be second hand. It is certain Bond Veale of Westmoreland/Prince William was not yet 18 when his father wrote his will in 1718. I also suspect her name was simply Sarah Veale. Although a Veale website, very well done, leaves no place for her, I have located a definite possibility as a sister to Bond Veale, not noted by their collaborative research.

Note: At Ancestry in the database "U.S. and International Marriage Records, 1560-1900", there is a marriage of Bond Veal to Elizabeth Gosling. However this collection of records published by Generations Network in 2004 was "extracted from a variety of sources including family group sheets and electronic databases. Originally the information was derived from an array of materials including pedigree charts, family history articles, querie." In other words, these records came from many sources which would be considered unreliable without backup sources - there is nothing primary about this publication.

I received the following message by email but it cannot be verified and, in fact, I have strong indications it is a much different Sarah Veale in question:

"In the Thomas Brauch Library, Leesburg, Loudoun County, Virginia, Charles Sweet located an old paper titled: "The Illegitimates of Loudoun County, Virginia (this is a polite name of this paper). Prior I had a conversation with Jimmy Veal of Valdosta, Georgia; he had indicated that Carnaby Veal had cohabited with another mans wife. At this time I believed this to be Bond Veale and not Carnaby Veal. This is the only writing that has been found placing her name as SARAH "SARA" BOND VILLE.
SALLY REID'S sister cohabits with BOND le VILLE out of wedlock, the child was named SARAH "SARA" BOND VILLE. SALLY REID removed to Ohio leaving the child SARAH VILLE to be raised by SARAH REID, her sister and her husband [SIR] JAMES WAUGH until she reached maturity. "

First of all, I discovered that the Library is the Thomas Balch Library, not Brauch. Loudoun Co was formed many years after the birth of Sarah Veale, wife of Thomas Poindexter - and Ohio did not yet exist. Mr. Sweet who found this paper is deceased and cannot be consulted. An inquiry to the Library revealed no manuscript of any such title, but there was a book, Apprentices, Poor Children and Bastards, Loudoun County, VA by Louisa Skinner Hutchison; Willow Bend Books, 2000.
On p.152 was the following which would of course refer to a Sarah Veale of a much later time: "Sarah Veale - female b. 9 Dec 1784. Reuben Reed, adjudged father to pay 8 pounds per yr for 7 yrs for support of child."
Given the fact that the Reed name also appears, I believe there has been a subsequent serious misinterpretation even if Mr. Sweet found a paper concerning this court proceeding that Ms. Hutchison used for her book. A record in the mid 1780's could indeed refer to Ohio - a record circa 1705-1710 would not.


Thomas Poindexter was living in Hanover Co at this time but had deeds recorded in Prince William at the same time as Bond Veale in Prince William. Thomas was a stepson of the Rev. James Brechin who had lived in Westmoreland Co.

To date, this is the earliest record I've found for Bond Veal:
p.61 Bk B, p.252-255 19 Mar 1733 Bond Veal of Pr. Wm. Planter to Richard Blackburn of same, carpenter. 130a Hamilton Parish on Little Cr, north side of South Br in Burbidges line. Part of 275a given by John Veal of Westmoreland Co in his will dated 21 Nov 1718 to John Veale & Morris Veal in these words: I give all my land in Stafford unto my sons John Veal and Morris Veal to be equally divided between them and if both dye without heir then to next heir at law…. Land descended to Bond Veal. Deed of lease & release. Signed: Bond Veale
19 Jun 1734. Ack by Bond Veal

Note: a Jno. Veal was a witness to a deed dated 19 Mar 1732. A deed dated 16 Oct 1733 mentions land where John Diskin lives sold to him by Morris Veale by deeds of lease & release on 9 Sep 1730 - 201 acres N side of Little Cr in Burbridges line. Another deed dated 19 Mar 1733 was to Maurice Veale from John Waugh - Veale was of Pr Wm, planter. It would seem the land had descended to Bond Veale fairly recently. Although, the Morris Veale named could have been Bond's uncle of the same name who lived until 1750, there was not another living John Veal known to be in the area 1732. A later deed in 1748, to follow, definitely shows that John & Morris Veal, brothers who inherited the above tract of land from their father, had died, leaving the property to a third brother who was Bond Veal. The elder John Veal did mention "all my children" in his will, not specifically naming them. Another factor to note is that none of John Veal's sons were yet eighteen when he wrote his will in 1718, and the one daughter he named was unmarried - some of the children could have been quite young. I have not found earlier records for Bond Veal; he could have been one of the younger children.

Here is where I found a place for Sarah Veale, wife of Thomas Poindexter.
First is the background data from Westmoreland. John Veale's widow married again after his death, perhaps twice. There is evidence of a daughter Dorothy, who died before she came of age - unnamed in John Veale's Will. There also seems to be a missing named heir which leaves a spot open for Sarah, wife of Thomas Poindexter.

Owen Brinnon summoned for Aubrey. 7 days. 280#'s tobo

This Susanna is surely the Susan who was left a pacing mare in the will of John Veale:
p.101 27 Feb 1722/3 Sheriff summon Wm Chandler & Deliverance executrix of John Veal dec'd to answer petition of Jacob Vandiver & Susanna his wife, one of the orphants of sd Veal at the next court.

And here is the document showing there were other heirs, other than Susan/Susanna, and sons John, Morris, and Veale. It names another daughter Dorothy, now dead. But the allotment allows for still one more heir. The Will had provided for 2000# of tobacco for each of the heirs.
p.132 29 Aug 1723
Judgment granted Jacob Vandiver & Susanna his wife, one of dau of John Veale dec'd agst William Chandler & Deliverance his wife exrx of the LW&T of Veal for 400# tobacco being a proportionable part of the estate left by the said Veal to his dau Dorothy who departed this life in her infancy for which part Jacob had petitioned and it is ordered Chandler pay the same.
If Susanna's share of Dorothy's 2000£ was 400£, then there were four other heirs, siblings of Dorothy - she had three known brothers, John, Morris & Bond. 2000 divided by 400 equals FIVE shares. Could the missing heir be Sarah Veal, wife of Thomas Poindexter????

I found no other payments to John Veale's heirs from the Chandlers except this one which is obviously a different situation. The Chandlers must have paid them the 400£ without the requirement of a lawsuit, or the others never bothered to sue.

[The son John was certainly living in 1723, although he was deceased before 1733 when Bond was selling his inherited property. Would be interesting to know more about what was involved in this case.]

It is also true that John Veale who married Deliverance had a brother Morris - Morris had both a daughter and a granddaughter named Sarah. So the given name was used in the Veale family.


There is one more possibility for the missing sibling of Dorothy Veale, deceased. I found mention of a James Veale in Westmoreland that I cannot place anywhere in the family. If the missing heir was a brother, he could have been that brother. If he had been younger than Bond, he would not have inherited under the laws of primogeniture. Deceased John & Morris Veale's property would have all descended to their next eldest brother, so he could not have been in line. I have only these two items and they are so early, I think it probably removes James from consideration as the missing heir. Either this James Veale died or removed from the area, but he cannot be completely eliminated. The other fact is that the will of John Veale 1718/1719 said "my three sons" - which would have been John, Morris & Bond.
