Notes


"Mary (Perry) Scott Blount is believed to have been the daughter of Jeremiah Perry, who left a will in Chowan Precinct of Albemarle County on October 8, 1694. He left a bequest to Christian Blount, daughter of Thomas Blount. See Will of Jeremiah Perry, North Carolina State Archives.


Mary first married Joshua Scott, son of Joseph Scott. They had two daughters, Grace and Sarah. Joshua left his will in Albemarle County, January 8, 1695/96 (jb-error 1786?). Soon afterwards, in May 1686, Mary married Thomas Blount. Thomas served as guardian for his stepdaughter, Grace Scott. See Wills of Joseph and Joshua Scott, North Carolina State Archives; See Dictionary of North Carolina Biography, I, 182.


On June 6, 1701, William Fryly of Perquimans Precinct, "Joiner," and his wife Grace (Scott) Fryley, and Thomas and Mary Blount, conveyed to Edmund "Peirce" a "Gent...all that their several Plantations commonly called or known by the Name of Old Scott Joshua Scott & a tract of land on the north side of Perquimans River containing by estimation 1050 acres, with all houses, fencing etc...to the same tracts belonging...being in Perquimans Prect & all their Joint & several Rights & Tithes..." See Perquimans County Record of Deeds, 1681-1729, C.077.40001, No. 169, North Carolina State Archives.


The above named grantors appointed "Mr. Robart Ffendall" to be their "Attorney to Acknowledg this Within deed in Court And to deliver possesion by turf and twig." The deed was proved at Precinct Court, July 8, 1701, and recorded July 14, 1701. See Weynette Parks Haun, Old Albemarle County North Carolina Perquimans Precinct Court Minutes 1688-1738 Book 1 (Durham, NC, 1980), 27.


On August 2, 1700, a petition was presented to the North Carolina General Court:


"Capt. Thos. Blount and Mary his Wife by theire humble Petition Praying That the said Mary may be Posessed with that part of the Land that was Left her by the Will of Joshua Scott her Late Deceased husband and the Honorable Court haveing Considered the Premisses and Examined the Will of the said Joshua Scott are of the Opinion that the aforesaid Mary Wife of Capt. Thos. Blounte hath a Right to what is above six hundred Acres of the Plantation whereon Wm. Frayly Lives that is to say all the Land the said Scott was posessed with." See Parker, North Carolina Higher-Court Records 1697-1701, 372.


In his two wills, Thomas Blount left two plantations to his wife, Mary Blount. First, she received the manor plantation at Kendrick's Creek and secondly, the Middle Plantation. The wills contained the provision that the lands would pass from her at her death to her children by Thomas Blount, the testator. See Wills of Thomas Blount, North Carolina State Archives.


After the death of Thomas Blount, Mary had some difficulties with her stepson, James Blount, who was named executor of the last will. On May 21, 1706, a citation was issued to Mrs. Mary Blount, "widdow and relict of Mr. Thomas Blount deceased personally to be and appear before the Honorable the Governor and Councell at the house of Captain John Hecklefield in Litle river on the third day of the next Generall Court then there to Shew Cause why Letters Testamenary may not be Granted to Mr. James Blount pursuant to the last Will and Testament of the Said Thomas Blount..." See Price, North Carolina Higher-Court Records 1702-1708, IV, 474-475.


In 1706, Mary Blount petitioned the Governor and Council that "James Blount hath from your Petition Eight Negroes Clandestinly from the said Mary taken away and the same in his Custody keps and wil not render to your Petitioner wherefore she humbly Craves an order for the same..." At the same time, "Kallam Tylor" petitioned that James Blount had taken and carried away a Negro belonging to him. The Executive Council addressed Mary's petition on November 1, 1706:


"Whereas att a Councell holden 29th day of Augt. 1706 It was ordered that the Estate of Thomas Blount in the possession of Mrs. Mary Blount Sho'd be devided and by reason of Some questions arriseing about the understanding of the said order it was not divided Since which the Said James Blount hath possessed him selfe of Some part of said Estate.


"Ordered that the honorable Jno. [illegibl]e Esqr. Christopher Gale Esqr. Nathaniell Chevin and Tobias Knight or any three of them shall at or before the 15th day of this Instant November doe make division of the Said Estate as well what is in the hands of James Blount and what is in the hands of Jennet Blount as what is in the hands and Custody of the said Mary Blount and that the said James Blount doe bring Such part of the Said Estate as is in his hands to the house of the said Mary Blount at Such tyme as the said Estate shall be divided as aforesaid And that both of them doe produce upon Oath what of the said Estate they have in their hands.


"And upon Motion of both partyes Concerneing the legacy of Catle given in the Second will It is the oppinion of this Board that the Said Legacy of Cattle is to be paid out of that halfe whereof the said James is Executor and that shee have a full and Cleare halfe of the whole personnall Estate Except her halfe part of the Charge in Law that has arrisen about the proveing of the Wills and Suits thereon depending or shall arrise upon the Account of the Divideing the Same." See Robert J. Cain, ed., Colonial Records of North Carolina [Second Series] Volume VII Records of the Executive Council 1664-1732 (Raleigh, NC, 1984), 6-7, 411.


The estate problems were finally resolved on November 13, 1706 when James Blount relinquished every legacy to him from the last will and testament of Thomas Blount in exchange for five "negroes." Of course, by this conveyance James gave up title to his 1/2 share of the Cabbin Neck property. The deed was registered in the April Court of 1708. See Chowan County, Deed Book W#1, p. 81.


Mary Blount was still a widow on April 18, 1708 when the minutes of St. Paul's Parish mention that "on petition of Madam Mary Blount for accomodating a poor indigent man, named Thomas Wright, at her house in his sickness one week, whereof he died and was buried at her charge, prays allowance. Ordered that she be paid by the public forty shillings. " This was the same vestry meeting that appointed a successor to Thomas Blount,--Col. Edward Mosely. See Colonial Records of North Carolina, I, p. 679.


Mary Blount was a wealthy and eligible widow. She married for the third time to Thomas Lee. She lived a few more years and executed her will on September 26, 1716. It was probated October 31, 1716. In the will she left her son Thomas Blount one half of the "manner plantation with the manner house." Her daughter, Silpia (Zilpha) received the "other halfe of the manner plantation." Sons Benjamin and Jacob Blount received the "Middle Plantation." She named her son, Thomas Blount, as executor. See Will of Mary Blount Lee, North Carolina State Archives."

Notes


"The will of Joseph Woodson was written (dated) 2 Dec 1815 and was recorded 17 Feb 1817 in Goochland County, VA, Deeds and Wills and Etc., Volume 22, Page 243. Wife/Widow: None mentioned.
Son: Joseph Woodson
Daughters: "all my daughters", married, not named
Children by Mary Ann Alvis: John W. Alvis, Matthew W. Alvis, Robert W. Alvis.
Executor: John Lewis
Witnesses: John Lewis, James Reynolds, William Salmon
Bondsmen for Executor: Nathaniel Smith, James B. Ferguson, George S. Smith


The will suggests that Joseph Woodson was a widower and that he had children by his legal wife. It also appears that Joseph Woodson and Mary Ann Alves may have had a common-law marriage relationship but were never formally married. There is no proof in my abstract of the will that they cohabited. The will mentioned that the family burying ground was located at "Goochland Old Court House". I believe that was the name of a town, which was the county seat at one time. I did not make any notes about what was willed to the children of Mary Ann Alvis." You can borrow the deed book containing this will, on microfilm, from the LDS Family History Center nearest you. Thank you Bob Strong


Joseph Woodson, b. ca 1740-50's Goochland; d. by 17 Feb 1817 Goochland; m. 24 Sep/Nov 1779 St. James Northam Sarah Hughes in Cumberland Co.; d. est. before 1792; Woodson children from family histories; Alvis children from Joseph's will:


Will of Joseph Woodson; Goochland Co.; 2 Dec 1815; 17 Feb 1817


Having rec’d information to a certainty of the death of my only legitimate son (Joseph) and all my daus. have married except one and I suppose she has by this time entered into wedlock; all of whom have had so much as I could give and are moreover independent and wealthy, I shall only give them each a dollar out of my estate.


To my natural of unlawful sons, John W. Alvis, Matthew W. Alvis & Robert W. Alvis (all begotten of the body of Mary Ann Alvis), the whole of my estate real and personal
