Notes


Transcribed by Kirkwood Adams LeCompte in 2003 from an original newspaper
clipping in family file.
"Source: Richmond (VA) Times Dispatch, April 24, 1887
In Memoriam. "Vicit omnia pertinax vertus." The death of a good citizen is a public calamity.


The sudden and unexpected demise of ALLEN YOUNG STOKES, November 19, 1886, in the full tide of his usefulness was a shock widely felt, and with peculiar sensibility in this city, his home for more than forty years, and with the interests and progress of which he was essentially identified. His was a marked character- of a type more contributory than other permanent prosperity of a community.


Inflexible in purpose, consistent and conservative in action, his energy, integrity, and prudence insured personal success, discouraged hazardous undertakings in others, and imparted confidence to his fellow citizens, thus laying the only sure basis of substantial growth. And not alone to Richmond was his zeal, capacity, and sound judgment contributory, for they were importantly impressed on the material interests of Virginia, and exerted appreciable influence in other States in which his extensive business relations gave him interest.


Quiet and undemonstrative in manner, of uniform and gentle temperament, his demeanor and utterance totally disarmed any suspicion of self-consciousness, and though, in his admirable career, a signal exemplification of the potency of ancestral worth, no one could have shrunk with more dismay from any claim of imputation of claim to peculiar regard on such account. Indeed, he was never heard to mention any progenitor save his father, the memory of whose unpretending worth he held in the most exalted veneration. Yet the lineage of Allen Young Stokes scarce yielded in antiquity to any other of Herald's College.


The Stokes family is of Norman origin, and claims to be a branch of the ancient and illustrious family of Montespedon, now believed to be extinct in Normandy. The lineage is traced to the time of Edward II, 1312, when Sir Adam de Stokke was seized of the Manors of Stokke and Rutishall, Wiltshire. Several representatives of the family were notable in Parliament. In the seventeenth century, when the name finally assumed it present orthography, Christopher Stokes held the Manor of Stanshawes with other lands in County Gloucester, England. The arms of the family still borne there are: Gules, a lion rampant ermine, double quicued. Crest: A demi-lion rampant double quicued. Motto: Vicit omnia pertinax virtus. [Persistent virtue conquers all.]


Christopher Stokes, of this family, migrated to the colony of Virginia in 1624; was the burgess for Warwick river in 1629, and for Denby in 1629-1630. In 1635 he patented 300 acres of land in Elizabeth City county, and in 1637, 400 acres in Warwick river (subsequently York) county.


Sylvanus Stokes, doubtless his son, appears as a resident of Charles City county in 1662. September 23, 1664, he married Mary, the daughter of Captain John Bishopp, deceased, who had been for years a magistrate of the county, and who represented it in the House of Burgessess in 1644, 1652, and 1653.


A grandson of this Sylvanus Stokes settled in North Carolina. Allen Young Stokes, the grandson of this immigrant and the son of Sylvanus Stokes (a highly respectable farmer) and Ann Gatewood, his wife, was born in Caswell county, North Carolina, April 25, 1819. He commenced his commercial career at the early age of nineteen in Danville, Virginia, and removed to Richmond in 1845. Speedy success attended his characteristic energy and probity, and his mercantile, manufacturing, and railroad interests became important, extending through several of the southern and western states.


Mr. Stokes attested his patriotism in the late war between the States in highly-efficient service as receiver of "tax in kind" for the Confederate States - an office which involved skill and judgment, and the supply of the army with provisions of every kind.


He was united in marriage, January 4, 1848, to Margaret M., daughter of Charles Pickett, and a cousin of the late gallant George E. Pickett, major-general Confederate States army. The issue of this union of unalloyed content was six sons, the well-known and representative young citizens, Charles Pickett, George Sylvanus, Allen Young, William Green, Sylvanus, and Thomas Dudley Stokes, who, in their activity and enterprise, worthily sustain the honored name of their lamented father."


Mr. Stokes was a consistent and pious member of the Protestant Episcopal Church to which and other good causes he was a liberal contributor. His unheralded charities, spontaneous in their offering, were manifold. His life exemplification in its every relation was truly one of virtue and usefulness, and should bless in the emulatory invitations.
