From: DFRH81A@prodigy.com (MR H W BUD GRAVES) Date: Tue, 22 Jul 1997.
CAPTAIN THOMAS GRAVES OF VIRGINIA GENERATION 1
Thomas Graves, gentleman, arrived in Virginia in October of 1608, coming from England in the ship "Mary & Margaret" with Captain Christopher Newport's second supply. Although John Card Graves states that Thomas was accompanied by his wife Katherine, sons John and Thomas and eight others, including Henry Singleton and Thomas Edge, most other historians agree that he did not bring his wife and children over until later. It is likely that he did not even marry Katherine until 1610, and his first first child was born about 1611.


Thomas Graves was one of the original Adventurers (stockholders) of the Virginia Company of London and one of the very early Planters (settlers) who founded Jamestown, Virginia, the first permanent English settlement in North America. He was also the first person named Graves in North America. Captain Thomas Graves is listed as one of the original Adventurers as "Thomas Grave" on page 364, Records of th Virginia Company of London, vol. IV. The Records of the Virginia Company state that in 1622 was granted "a patent to Thomas Graves of Doublin in the Realm of Ireland, gent.." The First Colony (consisting of knights,gentlemen, merchants and others of the city of London) made a settlement at Jamestown on May 13, 1607, which became permanent.


The Plymouth grantees (from the English cities of Bristol and Exeter, the town of Plymouth, and other places) established the Second Colony at Sagadagic (on the coast of what became Maine) in August 1607, but abandoned it in the spring of 1608.


Thomas Graves early became active in the affairs of the infant colony. Shortly after his arrival, while on an exploring expedition he was captured by the Indians and taken to Opecancanough's town. Ensign Thomas Savage, who had come to Virginia with the first supply on the John and Francis in 1608, was sent by Capt. John Smith and rescued him.


In 1617 the Virginia Company, hoping to expand population and agricultural production in the colony, encouraged private or voluntary associations organized on a joint stock basis to establish settlements in the area of the Company's patent. The Society of Smith's (or~Smythe's) Hundred (later called Southampton Hundred) was organized in 1617. In addition to Captain Thomas Graves, the Adventurers included Sir Thomas Smith, Sir Edwin Sandys, and the Earl of Southampton. Soon after April 29, 1619, Governor Yeardley wrote to Sir Edwin Sandys: "I have entreated Capt. Graves, an antient officer of this company, to take charge of the people and workes".


Capt. Thomas Graves was a member of the First Legislative Assembly in America, and, with Mr Walter Shelley, sat for Smythe's Hundred when it met at Jamestown on July 30, 1619.


The time of Capt Thomas Graves' removal to the Eastern Shore is not known. It was, however, after August 1619, since he was then a representative from Smythe's Hundred to the first meeting of the House of Burgesses. It was also prior to Feb 16, 1623, for "A List of Names of the Living in Virginia Feb. 1623" shows Thomas Graves "at the Eastern Shore". His patent for 200 acres on the Eastern Shore is of record 14 March 1628 (Patent Book No. 1, p. 72, Land Registrar's 0ffice, Richmond, Va.).


This land was in what was then known as Accomack, now a part of Northampton Co.It was granted by Dr. Thomas Pott, Governor of Virginia, and was on the eastern side of the Bay of Chesapeake, westerly of the lands of Capt Henry Flute, an explorer of the Bay, "by virtue of the adventure of five and twenty pounds paid by the said Capt.Thomas Graves to Sir Thomas Smyth, Treasure of the Virginia Company." He paid a "quit rent" of one shilling for fifty acres, payable at the feast of St. Michael the Archangel (Sept.29) each year on a part of his land.


In the census of February 1625, Capt.Thomas was one of only 51 people then living on the Eastern Shore. He was put in charge of the direction of local affairs later in 1625. In Sept. 1632 he, with others, was appointed a commissioner "for the Plantacon of Acchawmacke". He was one of the Burgesses to the Assembly, representing Accomac, for the 1629-30 season and for the 1632 session. He attended many of the meetings of the Commissioners, but he was absent from Dec 30, 1632/3 until Oct. 23, 1633/4. It appears that he was out of the country.


The old Hungars Episcopal Church is locate about seven miles north of Eastville, on the north side of Hungars Creek. Hungars Parish was made soon after the county was established, and the first minister was Rev. Francis Bolton, who was succeeded by Rev. William Cotton. The first vestry was appointed in 1635. The first vestry meeting was on Sept. 29, l635, at which Capt. Graves headed the list of those present. The first church edifice was
erected in 1690-95 and was still standing around 1900, one of the oldest churches in the country. In addition to Capt. Thomas Graves, the other persons named by the court as vestrymen of Hungars Church were William Cotton, minister, Obedience Robins, John Howe, William Stone (first Protestant Governor of Maryland), William Burdett, William Andrews, John Wilkins, Alexander Mountray, Edward Drews, William Beniman and Stephen Charlton.


Captain Thomas Graves died between November 1635 when he was witness to a deed and 5 Jan 1636 when suit was entered against a servant to Mrs. Graves (Adventurers of Purse and Person, pp. 188-189) . His birth date is not known, but is believed to be about 1580. That would have made him only about 55 years of age at his death.


Very little is known about Katherine, wife of Capt. Thomas Graves. Her maiden name may have been Croshaw. (There was a Raleigh Chroshaw, Gent., who arrived with the second supply with Thomas Graves.) Just when she came to Virginia is not recorded. She and her children are not included in the 1625 census of the Eastern Shore, although Capt. Thomas Graves is. The patent granted to John Graves (son of Capt. Thomas Graves) on Aug 9, 1637 states that the 600 acres granted to him in Elizabeth City was "due in right of descent from his father Thomas Graves, who transported at his own cost himself, Katherine Graves his wife, John Graves the patentee, and Thomas Graves, Jr., and 8 persons." (Cavaliers and Pioneers, Nugent.) The 50 acres assigned for each person transported shows they came after 1616. The other 8 persons transported did not include any members of Capt. Graves' family.


The girls, Ann, Verlinda, and Katherine obviously came later, and Francis was born in Virginia. The last reference to Mrs. Graves shows her living at the Old Plantation, Accomac, as of May 20, 1636. Since Captain Thomas Graves had been active in the affairs of Virginia from his arrival, the absence of any mention of him during certain periods indicate he had returned to England.


This is also confirmed in patents issued to him and to others in which he is mentioned. Mrs. Hiden stated: "Even a cursory reading of Northampton (formerly Accomack) records reveals how frequent were the trips to England, Ireland, Holland, and New England, of those living on the Eastern Shore. Mrs. Hiden also stated: "We know from the land patents that Capt.Graves made several trips out of the country, to England presumably, and on one of his return voyages his family accompanied him."


Thomas Graves was probably unmarried when he arrived in Virginia in 1608. He was young, and adventure was probably the reason for his coming to Virginia. He was obviously educated, of some "social status" and financial means, and a leader.


It is likely that he returned to England, possibly in Oct. 1609, either on the same ship with Capt. John Smith (who left Virginia for England for treatment of his wounds resulting from an explosion), or on one of the other seven ships which arrived in Virginia in August l609. In that way he would have missed the "Starving Time" of the winter of l609-l0, which so few survived. He may have then married in England in about 1610, fathered John Graves and Thomas Graves, remained in England for several years, and returned to Virqinia prior to the formation of Smythe's Hundred in 1617, or possibly a little later. It is known that he was "entreated to take charge of the people and workes" at Smythe's Hundred in April 1619, and was there then. Also, there is no record of his being in Virginia after the meeting of the Burgesses in July-August of 1619 until he is shown as living on the Eastern Shore in 1623. It seems reasonable that he was in England at the time of the Indian Massacre of March 1622, and upon retuning to Virginia settled on the Eastern Shore where it was less perilous to live. The fact that he fathered three children, the girls, durinq this period certainly lends support to his being in England."

Graves of Virginia (part of the unpublished manuscript on the Graves families). Edited, typed and indexed by Mrs. Nathalie Johnston.


" Robert Graves of Anson County, NC and Chesterfield County SC, Ancestors and Descendants (ca.1580-1979)," written by Kenneth Vance GRAVES, Published 1980.


Ken Graves is president of the GRAVES Family Association.


Ken states in his book, he believes (p.12) the patent to Thomas Graves of Dublin, Ireland to be a clerical error. As stated in the original charter of the Virginia Co. of London, the first Adventurers to Virginia were to be from the city of London.


"Captain Thomas GRAVES is listed as one of the original Adventurers as Thomas GRAVE on page 364, Records of the
Virginia Company of London, Vol.IV. Although the Records of the Virginia Company state that in 1622 was granted "a patent to Thomas Graves of Doublin in the Realm of Ireland, gent.", this is believed to be a clerical error. As stated in the original charter of the Virginia Co. of London, the first Adventurers to Virginia were to be from the city of London."

Genealogy of the Graves Family in America, by John Card Graves, 1896. He wrote: The distinctive arms of the Graves family are: "Gu. An eagle displayed or. Ducally crowned arg."


The crest: "A demi-eagle displayed and erased or. Enfiled round the body and below the wings by a ducal coronet arg."


By the alliance of members of the family with other families, and the marshalling of different arms in the same composition, variations are frequently found; they almost invariably retain,
however, as quarterings, the distinctive arms of the family, the eagle displayed or.


Various mottoes have been adopted, some of which have been used by the members of the family exclusively, and others by this and other families.


The following are the mottoes used, as far as can be ascertained, and translations:

Order of Descendants of Ancient Planters


The term "Ancient Planter" is applied to those persons who arrived in Virginia before 1616, remained for a period of three years, paid their passage, and survived the massacre of 1622. They received the first patents of land in the new world as authorized by Sir Thomas Dale in 1618 for their personal adventure.
Order of Descendants of Ancient Planters is an incorporated non-profit society whose purpose is to honor and perpetuate the memory of the Ancient Planters; to promote historical and genealogical research; to inspire patriotism; and to enhance fellowship among those of similar interests.
The Order of Descendants of Ancient Planters was founded October 13, 1991 in Raleigh, North Carolina. Membership is limited to descendants of Ancient Planters. Persons unknown to members of the Society may submit the name of their ancestor with a letter of endorsement. An invitation may then be issued. An invitation is valid for one year from the date it is issued.
Persons under the age of 21 may become Junior Members upon the approval of application papers and payment of application fee. They pay no yearly dues.

1607-1642
As is generally well-known, the settlement at Jamestown _was_ Virginia for the first few years. In 1611 a small settlement was made as far up the north bank of the James River as opposite the mouth of the Appomattox River. In succeeding years, small enclaves were established on the south side of the lower James River, on the northern end of The Peninsula at the mouth of the York River (then known as Charles River), and across the Chesapeake Bay on the Eastern Shore. By 1634, the population of the colony was slightly less than 5,000, almost all of whom -- except those on the Eastern Shore -- still lived within about a


30-mile radius of Jamestown. In 1634, the colony was divided into eight "shires," or counties, to facilitate administration. These were:
HENRICO }
CHARLES CITY }
JAMES CITY } all on The Peninsula
ELIZABETH CITY }
WARWICK RIVER }
CHARLES RIVER }
WARROSQUOAKE on the south side of the mouth of the James River
ACCOMACK on the Eastern Shore


From a sociological standpoint it's well to note that with a very few exceptions the colonists to this point were exclusively English and middle-class (yeomen, artisans, craftsmen, soldiers), with a significant number of them in some form of indentured servitude. The colony was still
a little too rustic and dangerous to attract English "gentry." A word or two of explanation about indentures may be in order, here. It's been said that perhaps no more than 10% of colonists paid their own way to come to VA, with the remainder arriving indebted to someone for their passage. Consequently, they could be termed "indentured persons," in the sense that they were obligated to repay their passage. The types of indentures varied widely: For
some, it meant indentured servitude, working directly in the service of another for an agreed-upon period of time -- usually 5-7 years -- with the "employer" providing food, clothing and shelter; these folks often were called "servants" but more accurately were laborers of various types. For others, it was simply a monetary debt that they were obligated to repay, with interest, within an agreed time -- essentially a short-term loan. In a few cases, it was some combination of the two.


"Relocated to the Eastern Shore aft Aug 1619 and prior to Feb. 16, 1623, for "A List of Names: of the Living in Virginia, Feb. 16, 1623" shows Thomas Graves "at the Eastern Shore". His patent for 200 acres on the Eastern Shore is of record 14 March 1628 (Patent Book No. 1, p. 72, Land Registrar's Office, Richmond, Va.). This land was in what was then known as Accomack, now a part of Northampton Co. It was granted by Dr. Thomas Pott, Governor of Virginia, and was on the eastern side of the Bay of Chesapeake, westerly of the lands of Capt. Henry Flute, an explorer of the Bay, "by virtue of the adventure of five and twenty pounds paid by the said Capt. Thomas Graves to Sir Thomas Smyth, Treasurer of the Virginia Company." He paid a "quit rent" of one shilling for fifty acres, payable at the feast of St. Michael the Archangel (Sept. 29) each year on a part of his land."


Captain Thomas Graves is listed as one of the original Adventurers as "Thomas Grave" on page 364, Records of the Virginia Company of London, vol. IV. Althoughthe Records of the Virginia Company state that in 1622 was granted "a patent to Thomas Graves of Doublin in the Realm of Ireland, gent.", this may be a clerical error. As stated in the original charter of the Virginia Co. of London, the first Adventurers to Virginia were to be from the city of London.
Regarding the title of "Captain" which is attached to Thomas Graves in Virginia historical records, he had no such designation in the Charter of 1609 wherein all the Adventurers (stockholders) of the Virginia Company are listed, and is shown by Captain John Smith on his arrival in Virginia simply as "Thomas Graves, Gent." Thus it appears that he acquired the title of Captain after arriving in Virginia.

From: DFRH81A@prodigy.com (MR H W BUD GRAVES) Date: Tue, 22 Jul 1997.
CAPTAIN THOMAS GRAVES OF VIRGINIA GENERATION 1


Thomas Graves, gentleman, arrived in Virginia in October of 1608, coming from England in the ship "Mary & Margaret" with Captain Christopher Newport's second supply. Although John Card Graves states that Thomas was accompanied by his wife Katherine, sons John and Thomas and eight others, including Henry Singleton and Thomas Edge, most other historians agree that he did not bring his wife and children over until later. It is likely that he did not even marry Katherine until 1610, and his first first child was born about 1611.


Thomas Graves was one of the original Adventurers (stockholders) of the Virginia Company of London and one of the very early Planters (settlers) who founded Jamestown, Virginia, the first permanent English settlement in North America. He was also the first person named Graves in North America. Captain Thomas Graves is listed as one of the original Adventurers as "Thomas Grave" on page 364, Records of th Virginia Company of London, vol. IV. The Records of the Virginia Company state that in 1622 was granted "a patent to Thomas Graves of Doublin in the Realm of Ireland, gent.." The First Colony (consisting of knights,gentlemen, merchants and others of the city of London) made a settlement at Jamestown on May 13, 1607, which became permanent.


The Plymouth grantees (from the English cities of Bristol and Exeter, the town of Plymouth, and other places) established the Second Colony at Sagadagic (on the coast of what became Maine) in August 1607, but abandoned it in the spring of 1608.


Thomas Graves early became active in the affairs of the infant colony. Shortly after his arrival, while on an exploring expedition he was captured by the Indians and taken to Opecancanough's town. Ensign Thomas Savage, who had come to Virginia with the first supply on the John and Francis in 1608, was sent by Capt. John Smith and rescued him.
