Honorable Chas Ld Baltimore by ord. B Fery, W. TASKER Esq. Agnt. Wm Digges

Liber "T" Folio 270
Hall of Records, Annapolis Prince George County, Maryland

James Moore Senior purchased the tract of land called "Barbadoes" in 1713 which contained 150 acres. When I plotted out the survey runs and coordinates for both Hoskinsons Folly and James Hoskinsons part of Barbadoes, I found that Barbadoes lay adjacent to and nearly abutted Hoskinsons Folly on the South. Later in 1748-49 James Hoskinson applied for a resurvey of his land (50 Acres Barbadoes) to include a narrow strip of vacant and unclaimed land along his north line. After the resurvey was made James Hoskinsons land then abutted Hoskinsons Folly, both on the South and on the West.

In November 1739 James Hoskinson was summoned into Court on Duces Tecum Issuer, brought by Henry and Edward Trafford. James was ordered to produce a document or some instrument of writing. As already mentioned in the Thomas Hoskinson section, I believe this had some connection with the 1740 case of Traffords Vs Thomas Hoskinson. This was awarded against James. Liber X, Fol.549.

Later in 1747, James applied to the Provincial Land Commission for the resurvey of his property, which was to include a narrow strip of vacant and unclaimed land that lay between his and that of Hoskinsons Folly. This is found in "Petition to Reservey Liber BY & GS #3, Folio # 54. After several delays, this resurvey was finally completed in 1749 and an additional 90 acres was added to the original 50 acres that James received from his Grandfather. This was by land Certificate #140. Liber BY & GS #1, Folio #635.

As mentioned earlier, when I plotted out the survey runs and co-ordinates,. it was found that James Hoskinsons land "the gift" (Barbadoes) abutted Hoskinsons Folly on both its south and west sides. Also, I believe that the North West Branch of the Eastern Branch of the Potomack River flowed between Hoskinsons Folly and James Hoskinsons land. The remaining 100 acres, the part of Barbadoes that George Moore received, also abutted that of James Hoskinsons on the South.

In 1755 James Hoskinson was noted as having packed, prized and shipped tobacco for the estate of Charles Higgenbotham in Fredrick County Maryland. In 1756 it was noted that James Hoskinson received payment for this service.

In 1763 the Prince George County Estate records indicated that James Hoskinson owed the estate of John Smith Prather a sum of money as follows: PRINCE GEO. CO. MD.COURT RECORDS Film LDS #0014282 No#1 1763 Page 18, 80 and 81. Estate Accounts Due of Wm Deakins and Elizabeth his wife, Executors of John Smith Prather for cash received and due to the Deceased Estate. Jan. 28, 1765 by Zach. Harris, /6/.

Samuel Sumsar 16, James Hoskinson 19. and others.

On 6 April 1765, James and Elizabeth Hoskinson mortgaged their land to Thomas Cramphin a Bladenburg Lawyer for the amount of Thirty Two pounds, Seven shillings and 7 Pence silver currency. Elizabeth released her dower in the land at the time. Repayment with interest was due on the first of August 1767. Later, on 18 February 1767 James and Elizabeth repaid this mortgage in the amount of Thirty Six Pounds, 10 Shillings and 5 Pence. I believe that this mortgage was probably taken out to pay the debt, at least in part, to the John Smith Prather estate. After James and Elizabeth paid off this mortgage they again received clear title to their land.

By 1769 some of those whom I consider to have been James Hoskinson's children and those who moved with him to Berkeley County, Va., began to appear in the Prince George County, Maryland records. The first was Azariah Thomas Hoskinson who appeared on a cerificate of Astray in 1769, Involving five stray horses. Then came Jeptha in 1771 on a Bill of Sale and later in 1775 Isaiah Hoskins appeared on an Estate Listing of people who owed debts to the Estate of Michael Binci. James, Azariah and Jeptha were also listed in this same ledger. Estate Inventories Bk #1, page 315.

On 23 December 1772 James and Elizabeth sold One Hundred Twenty Seven and one half acres of their land, Giliard (Barbadoes), with a half acre reserved as a burying place. This was sold to Samuel Shekill of Ann Arundell County, Maryland, with Elizabeth releasing her right of Dower in the land at the time. They received One Hundred Fifty Eight Pounds Fifteen Shillings Sterling in hand for the property. As James reserved 1/2 acre for a burying ground in this sale of Giliard (or Giliad), it might be assumed that both Thomas Senior and Jane Moore Hoskinson are both buried there. This sale left 12 1/2 acres remaing as unsold of their original 140 acres which may have contained the house where they had been living. James and Elizabeth were no doubt contemplating on leaving the area, but may have continued to live there for awhile longer after the sale of their other land. This sale was also in close proximity to that of Azariah Thomas Hoskinson, who had already sold his land, Hoskins Lott, on 14 September 1772. Azariah's land lay on a branch of the Sligo a short distance north from where James Hoskinsons land was located. This might seem to indicate that both Azariah and James had planned to leave the area together, as nothing more was found in the Prince George County records pertaining to them after that, with the exception of a few unpaid debts to some deceased persons Estates. Prince George County, Maryland Deeds Liber BB #3, Folio #144-145-146. Hall of Records, Annapolis, Md.

The next notice of Azariah and James was when they turned up in Berkeley County, VA. in 1777/78. By this time Basil and Jeremiah Hoskinson had already preceded them there, these two were first listed in Berkeley County, Virginia Court records on 17 March 1774. Later Jeptha, Isaiah, Ezekiel, Mathew and Nancy Geyer (w/o Fredrick) also turned up in the same area near Bath, Va. (now Berkeley Springs, WVa.). Isaiah, Basil and Ezekiel served in the Virginia Revolutionary War Milita while living in, Berkeley County.

The first mention of James Hoskinson in Berkeley County, Va. was on 18 August 1778 when he purchased 200 acres of land from Abraham Davenport by indenture of Lease and Release. The writer believes that the Davenports and Hoskinsons were well aquainted prior to the purchase, as both had been living in Prince George County, Maryland before moving to Berkeley Co. Va. This 200 acres was located on Dry Run, a draft of Warm Springs Run, of the Potomack River, and lay about two miles north of Bath, Va. It was part of a 400 acre land grant that Davenport had received in 1775 from the Governor of Virginia. As the 200 acres was purchased by indenture of Lease and Release, James may have been living there for awhile prior to his actual purchase. Berkeley County, Virginia Land Deed Book #5, Pages 66-67-68.

During his stay of about ten or eleven years in Berkeley County, Va. James was involved in several small court cases, most involving debts that were owed him. These cases seem to point to James as having been into some type of business, possibly with Isaiah as he to was in a number of similar law suits in this same time frame. In my opinion almost all of the Hoskinson people that were on record in Berkeley County in the 1770's and 1780's were the children of James. These were: Azariah, Jeptha, Jeremiah, Mathew, Isaiah, Basil, Ezdkiel and Nancy Geyer. Also, with the exception of Basil and Ezekiel all of these people later ended up in Monongalia County, Virginia, just ahead of James. Basil went to Brownsville, in Fayette County, Pa. and Ezekiel to Mississippi.

Between August 1782 and January 1783, James sold the remaining 12 1/2 acres of land that he still owned in Prince George County, Md., to John Schofield of Montgomery County, Maryland. This was done by power of attorney. Elizabeth did not sign a release of Dower, which might indicate that she had died prior to that time. This is recorded in the Prince George County,

Maryland Deed Book, 1783. Liber Folio 282-283.

Also, after James arrived in Berkeley County, Basil Hoskinson applied for a land grant of 216 acres that was surveyed in 1779. This land lay next to that of James Hoskinson on Warm Springs Run. The Grant is as follows:

In 1788 James sold his 200 acres of land on Dry Run, by mortgage, based on five annual payments for five years, to Patrick McKelvey. McKelvey finished paying off this mortgage in 1794 and James released the mortgage by power of attorney. This P/A was handled by his good friend and son-in-law, Fredrick Gyer. James was then living in Monongalia County, either with or close to the Gyer family. The Gyers were from Washington Co., Maryland but had lived in Berkeley Co., near James Hoskinson at the time he was there.

On 14, December 1795, James Hoskinson gave all of his household goods and livestock to his Granddaughter, Ann Elizabeth Gyer, by Deed of Gift, as follows:

14 December 1795.

James Hoskinson To Granddaughter ANN ELIZABETH GYER.

TO ALL PEOPLE TO WHOM THESE PRESENTS SHALL COME, I James Hoskinson do send greetings: Know Ye that I the said James Hoskinson of the County of Monongalia and State of Virginia Carpenter for and in consideration of the natural love and good will and affection which I have and do bear toward by loving Grand Daughter Ann Elizabeth Gyer of the County and State Aforesaid and the sum of five shillings current money of Virginia to him in hand paid the receipt whereof the said James Hoskinson doth hereby acknowledge.

DISTRICT COURT holden at Monongalia Court House May term 1796. This deed of gift from James Hoskinson to Ann Elizabeth Gyer was proved by the oath of James Brand a witness thereto and ordered recorded. Teste:Williams Clerk of Court

The deed of gift by James Hoskinson to Ann Elizabeth Gyer, his grand daughter, was the last mention of James in the Monongalia Co., Va. records that I could locate. As the Court acknowledged and recorded the deed in the May 1796 term, the writer believes that it is reasonable to assume that James had died just prior to that time.
[Research by Robert J. Hoskins, North Carolina]

James married Elizabeth. Elizabeth died about 1780.

They had the following children:

+ 25 M i Jeptha HOSKINSON
+ 26 M ii Azariah Thomas HOSKINSON
+ 27 M iii Jeremiah HOSKINSON
  28 M iv Ezekiel HOSKINSON was born about 1745 in , Prince Georges County, Maryland. He died 1 before 1832 in , Berkley County, Virginia.

Rev. War Vet. served with Isaiah and Basil 1777/78 Berkeley County, Va.

On 22 March 1786. Basil Hoskinson and Cornelius Conway came into Court for Ezekiel Hoskinson in the case of Wm Bready Vs Ezekiel Hoskinson Def. Debt. If Ezekiel could not pay, they would. Court Order Book #7, Berkeley Co., Va. Page 382, 25 March 1786.

On 13 March 1788. Ezekiel Hoskinson sold to his brother Basil Hoskinson a horse, a gray gelding called Liberty that he had purchased from Capt. Ephriam Worthington. Deed Book #8, page 285. Berkeley Co., Va.

It is believed that Ezekiel left the area soon after the horse sale and went to Natchez in Jefferson County, Mississippi with James Carmichael and possibly Brian Bruin of Berkeley Co. Va. Both Bryan Bruin and Ezekiel Hoskinson witnessed a deed there for Phoebe Goodwin to Henry Manadue on 17 December 1788. Ezekiel, Bruin and also Carmicheal signed and witnessed several other deeds and papers there through 31 March 1804. On 31 March 1804 a claim for 370 acres of land in Claiborne Co. on waters of Bayou Pierre by Ezekiel Hoskinson and James Carmichael was rejected. This from abstracts of Early Records, Natchez Mississippi Court Records 1767-1805. A Bryan Bruin was mentioned many times in Berkley Co., Va. land and Court records in the 1770-1780's. Nothing more is known about Ezekiel Hoskinson after 1805.

In the 1792 Spanish Census Natchez District of the Mississippi Territory Ezekiel Hoskins was listed as head of houshold in the Bayou Pierre district. The census also listed a "Pedro" Bruin, the enumerators, being Spanish, used the Spanish interpretation for many of the given names.

18. Thomas HOSKINSON Jr. (Thomas HOSKINSON , John , John ) was born about 1712 in Rock Creek Parish, Prince Georges County, Maryland.

By 1740 there was a Thomas Hoskinson Junior nearby who also began to appear in the records and who was no doubt the son of Thomas Senior. Thomas Junior is believed to be the one who married Ann in 1740 and whose children were later listed in the Prince George Parrish Church records. Thomas Junior was also listed in Court records when he sued to collect a debt from Thomas Butler whom he had built a tobacco barn for in 1742/43. Thomas Hoskinson Senior and Thomas Junior were designated as such in their 1742/43 court transcripts.

Thomas married Ann BEALL ? 1 on 25 Mar 1740 in Rock Creek Parish, Prince Georges County, Maryland. Ann was born in 1722 in Rock Creek Parish, Prince Georges County, Maryland.

They had the following children:

  36 M v Josiah HOSKINS was born on 16 Nov 1749 in Rock Creek Parish, Prince Georges County, Maryland. He died in 1784 in , Davidson County, Tennessee.

BIRTH: Birth from Church Records

DEATH:There are records in Davidson County, Tennessee which states; in the year 1784, Josiah Hoskins and Joseph Hoskins were killed by Indians. What relation were they to each other and the other Hoskins in that area is not known.

BIOGRAPHY: Josiah and his brothers John and Jesse were early pioneers in what was then western North Carolina and Johnson County Tennessee.
The first settlement in Johnson County is said to have been made about 1770, on Roane Creek, near its confluence with the Watauga, by a man named Honeycut. Other settlements were made soon after farther up Roane Creek, and on Little Doe and the Laurel. Shady was also settled at a comparatively early day, Among the pioneers who had found homes in the territory now embraced in Johnson County prior to 1778, were Joseph Hoskins, George and Samuel Heatherby, Thomas, John and Charles Asher, Richard and Benjamin Wilson, John and Henry Grimes, Joseph Gentry, John, Jesse and Josiah Hoskins and John Higgins. At that time the entire population of this section did not exceed 150.

This is a list of soldiers who went to Charles Town, South Carolina, in 1776 from Washington County, North Carolina, now Tennessee. Judge Samuel Williams, in his writing on Tennessee history, tells of this event.

BIOGRAPHY: "Early History of Middle Tennessee" by Edward Albright, 1908.
This book provides details on the death of Josiah Hoskins. This occurs in chapter 25 which deals with the events of 1784. This takes place in the fall near Eatons Station which was not far from Nashville.
"In the early spring Nicholas TRAMMEL and Philip MASON were stalking game along the headwaters of White's Creek, a few miles northwest of Goodlettsville. While they were down on the ground skinning a deer which had been killed, a large company of Indians crept up from behind and opened fire, slightly wounding MASON. They then stole the carcass of the deer and pursued their journey up the creek. After running some distance through the woods MASON stopped to dress his wound and also to await the return of TRAMMEL, who went on to Eaton's for reinforcements. Later TRAMMEL came back with four of the settlers, and being joined by MASON, the entire party started post-haste after the enemy. They soon found the trail and followed rapidly, but in their haste failed to notice that the large number of tracks they were following had grown less. The Indians, suspecting pursuit, had gradually slipped aside, one and two at a time, in order that the whites might be thus entrapped.
Finally a few who yet led on were overtaken and the settlers dismounting rushed upon them, killing two of their number. In the meantime the Indians in the rear came up, captured the horses and opened a deadly fire on the whites, during which MASON received a mortal wound. His companions ran into the woods and thus escaped. TRAMMEL objected to this hasty retreat and desertion of MASON, but his comrades insisted that it was useless to continue the fight, as the contest was unequal. After traveling some distance they met Josiah HOSKINS, who was known in the settlement as a soldier braver than Julius CAESAR, and also a better rifleman. Led now by TRAMMEL and HOSKINS, the party started again in pursuit of the Indians, and coming up with them the fight was renewed, this time from behind trees. After three of the Indians had been killed, TRAMMEL and HOSKINS boldly came out into the open determined to put the enemy to flight. No sooner had they done so than each received a shot and died instantly. The rest of the whites held their ground and kept up the fire until both parties were exhausted, and by common consent gave up the contest. Each company then went its way, leaving its dead on the field."
