Family 1 :
  1. +William PRESSLEY
  2.  David PRESSLEY

Notes


"The ancestors of the family emigrated from Scotland to Ireland. The tradition in the family is that the name was Priestly when they were in Scotland, and that Dr. Joseph Priestly of Fuldhead near Luds belonged to the same family. The doctor was a very distinguished theologian. His religious views did not suit the rest of the Priestly family. He never was an infidel but "had the courage of his convictions" and followed them wherever they led.
He passed through all changes from Calvinism to Unitarianism. Some of the family who were Calvinists were very much offended by his course, and to distinguish themselves from him, changed their name from Priestly to Pressley There has been some controversy as to how the name was spelled. Some of the family spell it Pressley and others Pressly. Both sides claim to be right. Relationship is claimed with the Pennsylvania family of which John S. Pressley, D.D. was the most distinguished member. They claim relationship with the S.C. branch while they were Northern Prisoners during the great Civil War. These Pressley's sprang from a brother of the Williamsburg brothers who settled first on the James River in VA. And then went west. Two brothers William Pressley and David Pressley appear in the records of that church."

Rice HOOE I "the Immigrant"

1 Jan 1598 - 1655

ID Number: I72013

  • RESIDENCE: Wales and 1618 Jamestown and Charles City Co. VA
  • BIRTH: 1 Jan 1598, Wales
  • DEATH: 1655, "Merchant's Hope, " Charles City Co. Virginia
  • RESOURCES: See: [S2747]

Family 1 :
  1. +Rice HOOE II

Notes


Spouse: Sarah. "Emigration: 1618 Embarked in the ship "Gifte." Emigration: 23 JUN 1635 Embarked at Gravesend in the ship "America.". 6 3;
Aka:: Rhys /Hooe/
Rice Hooe I (Ryce Howe, Ryce Hoe) initially came to Virginia on the ship "Gifte" in 1618. He is not listed in the census records of 1623, but his name is found on the Virginia muster, January 22, 1625.


A Mr. Ryce Hooe was Burgess from Shirley Hundred Island, 1632-1634. This may be the father of the Rice Hooe who emigrated from Gravesend in 1635 on the ship "America," or Rice Hooe may himself have been in Virginia prior to 1635, returning to England for a time. If so, then he may be the same as the Rice Hooe who was a passenger on the ship "Gifte" in 1618. The "America" landed at Jamestown, Virginia.


Rice Hooe was Burgess from Charles City County, Virginia, from 1644 or 1645 to 1647. In June, 1641, he and three others (Walter Austin, Joseph Johnson, and Walter Chiles) petitioned the Virginia Assembly for permission to discover a new river or unknown land, "West-Southerly from Appomattake river, with all rights confirmed to them for 14 years from Jany., 1641." This petition was granted in March, 1642, "receiving one-fifth of all Royal Mines, &.." The explorers were to have trading rights with the Indians for 14 years. It is not known how this venture turned out. In a letter from Governor Berkely to Lord Arlington written 14 years after Rice Hooe's death in 1655, the Governor said, "There were no such scruples. . .in 1643, when the assembly authorized Walter Austin and Rice Hooe to undertake the discovery of a new river and unknown land."


In 1651 Rice Hooe and Edward Bland opened the Occaneechi trading "path" in order to trade with the Indians for skins. At the time of his death in 1655 he was a Justice of Charles City County and a member of the vestry of St. Paul's Parish.


The name "Hooe" appears in Burke's General Armory as Hoe or Hooe. Another variant is Howe. It is "a corruption of the Saxon HOUGH, and signifies high and noble."


--A History of Chapman and Alexander Families, genealogy.com, pp. 172-173.


In 1626, Rice Hooe "acted as agent for William Besse, 'late of Jordan's Journey'." On May 2, 1636, he received a patent for 1200 acres in Charles City County, Virginia, "near Martin's Brandon (now Brandon, Prince George County), extending west on the main river to 'a creek that parteth the lands of Martin Brandon and Captain Ward's land,' and bounded on the south by a creek called Captain Ward's creek, all which land is called by the name of Captain Ward's plantation; due, 100 acres for the personal adventure of said Howe and wife, and 1100 for the transportation of 22 persons." In 1637, he patented land in James City County, Virginia, "at a place called Capt. Martins Shipps." On May 9, 1638, "Rice Hoe" received a regrant of the 1200 acres granted in 1636. On June 4, 1639, he patented 300 acres adjoining the land already granted him,and "bounded by the river and David Jones' Creek," and on October 8, 1643, as "Rice Hoe Gent.," he was granted 1969 acres, which included the former grants of 700 and 300 acres. There are no Northern Neck grants to the Hooes prior to 1700, so the family may have first acquired land there by purchase. It appears that Rice II was the first to move to the Northern Neck.


On January 22, 1634 or 1635, he was living at West and Shirley Hundred with his partners, John Higgins and Christopher Woodward. The nature of their business is unknown.


--"Descendants of Rice Hooe, Immigrant," posted by T. W. Sosebee, Hooe Family Genealogy Forum, genforum.com


From A Genealogy of the Glassell Family:


The name appears in Burke's General Armory as Hoe or Hoo. The first notice of the name in Virginia is as early as 1632.


"23d June, 1635. Theis under written names are to be transported to Virginia imbarqued in the America William Barker Mr pr cert. from Minister of the Town of Gravesend of the conformity to the order of the discipline of the Church of England.
Ryce Hooe aged 36. John Carter aged 54. John Robinson 32. Matthew Robinson 24. Hugh Fox 24. John Yates," and many others. (N.E. His. Gen. Reg. III., 388).


His wife's name is alternately given as Jane Seymour and Mary Seymour.


Rice Hooe probably emigrated in 1618 on the "Gifte" or "GIftie." He apparently returned to England in 1634, and then came back to Virginia on the "America," embarking from Gravesend on June 23, 1635. His purpose may have been to bring over more colonists. The practice was to give land grants as a reward from bringing in colonists. From 1637 to 1649, Virginia land book records indicate land grants totaling thousands of acres were made in the name of Rice Hooe. Since these land grants were made after his trip to England, it is quite possible that the trip had something to do with the subsequent grants. The family home at this time was Merchant's Hope, Charles City County.


There is no record of when or where he married. One of his numerous land grand names Sarah Goodwin as one of his headrights and it is believed that she became his wife. One of the grants states that 100 acres was for "transportation of him and his wife," indicating that he married in England and returned to Virginia with his bride. At his death in 1655, his son was still a minor, again implying marriage while in England or shortly after his return.


He sold some land on September 17, 1655 to William Fry. Shortly thereafter, he must have died, since on December 3, 1655, Mrs. Sarah Hooe was granted administration on his estate.


Marriage 1 Jane Seymour b: in England.
Marriage 2 Sarah Goodwin b: ABT 1612 in England or Charles City County, Virginia
Married: 1635 in England or Virginia.


The wife of the Rice Hooe who emigrated in 1635 is given in one place as Mary Seymour (A History of Chapman and Alexander Families, genealogy.com, p. 173), and on the same page as Sarah ??


Although Rice Hooe's wife is Mrs. Sarah, her maiden name of Goodwin is not confirmed. "Sarah Goodwin" was the name on a headright grantd to Rice Hooe and finding no other "Sarah" identified as his wife it has been assumed that he married Sarah Goodwin. They may have married while Rice was in England the second time, and Rice II may have been born in England. However, neither Sarah nor Rice II are apparently mentioned on the passenger list of the "America."


On October 3, 1665, Rice Hooe II was granted administration "on the estate of his mother, Mrs. Sarah Hooe, dec'd."


Marriage 1 Thomas Howard
Marriage 2 Rice Hooe b: 1 Jan 1598/99 in Wales Married: 1635 in England or Virginia
