ID Number: I71326

  • RESIDENCE: ENG
  • BIRTH: 1602, house of Gunston, Staffordshire, England,

Family 1 : Mary BAYLEY
  1. +Gerrard FOWKE "the Immigrant"

Notes


Father John FOWKE Mother Dorothy CUPPER.
"FOWKE FAMILY: The original paper of which the following is a copy, is in possession of Enock Mason, Stafford County, Va. The copy from which the following is taken was furnished by his son, W. Roy Mason, of King George, May 1828. He says his mother was a niece of Chandler Dinwiddie Fowke.
Copy:
Roger Fowke1, of the house of Gunston, Staffordshire, England, and Mary, his wife, had nine sons and six daughters, viz.:
1st son name not given.
2nd son, Roger Fowke2,
3rd son, Francis Fowke2,
4th son, Anthony Fowke2, died unmarried.
5th son, William Fowke2, died beyond the sea.
6th son, Gerard Fowke2(*),
7th son, Robert Fowke2, of whom nothing is known.
8th son, Edward Fowke2, a turkey merchant.
9th son, Thomas Fowke2, a Virginian.
1st daughter, Dorothy Fowke2, married Mr. Brown a London merchant.
2nd daughter, Jean Fowke2, married Mr. Hope of Staffordshire, England.
3rd daughter, Judith Fowke2, of whom nothing is known.
4th daughter, Margery Fowke2, died unmarried.
5th daughter, Mary Fowke2, died unmarried.
6th daughter, Susanna Fowke2, married Mr. Smith of Killington, England.


(*)The sixth son, Gerard2 Fowke, who was Colonel in the British Army, and Gentleman of the Privy Chamber of Charles I, came to Virginia about the time that monarch was beheaded in 1649. He settled in Virginia, and acquired several tracts of land on or near the Potomac, now King George County, containing 1,400 acres.


One son of Gerard2 Fowke settled in Maryland, namely, Gerard2 Fowke, and married the widow of Mr. Job Chandler (and daughter of Adam Thorowgood, of Lynnhaven, Va.), on Port Tobacco Creek, where he lived the rest of his life. He had two sons and two daughters:
1st, Adam Fowke4, died in infancy.
2nd, Gerard Fowke4, married Sarah Burdette.
3rd, Ann Fowke4, married Major William Dent of Charles County, Md.
4th, Mary Fowke4, married Col. George Mason of Gunston Hall, Va. (The first man who raised his voice in favor of States Rights.)
His children were:
1st, son, George Mason5,
2nd son, Tench Mason5,
3rd son, Nicholas Mason5,
4th son, Gerard Mason5,
5th, daughter, Ann Mason5, married, first, Daniel or Darnell; second, Fitzhugh; third, Smith.
6th, daughter, Mary Mason5, married first Fitzhugh, second Stratton (?).
7th, daughter, Sempha Rose Amphel Mason5, married, first, a Scotch gentleman, Mr. Dinwiddie, a merchant on the Rappahannock, and brother to the late Gov. Robert Dinwiddie. They had two daughters. Elizabeth, their second daughter, married Mr. McNort (?) of Yorkshire, England.
The second husband of S. R. A. Mason5 was Jeremiah Bronaugh, of King George County, Va. They had five children: William, John, Mary, Ann, and Elizabeth.


Gerard Fowke4 married Sarah, daughter of Mr. Burdette of Charles County, Maryland. He exchanged 400 acres of land, part of the 1,400 acres, for 500 acres on the Nanjemoy Creek, to which place he removed, and where he spent the remainder of his life, and at his death, left said estate to his grandson, Gerard Fowke??, son of Roger Fowke.
Gerard Fowke4 and Sarah Burdette had three sons and four daughters:
Gerard Fowke5, died a short time before he was to have been married
Roger Fowke5, third son, married Ann Stone, daughter of Thomas Stone of Charles County, Md. (I think he was the Signer of the Declaration of Independence.--S. M. F. C.)
Their children were:
1st, Gerard Fowke4, married Miss Harrison.
2nd, Jean Fowke4, married William Fowke6.
Ann Fowke5, first daughter of Gerard Fowke,4, married Robert Alexander, b. 1688, in Stafford County, Va., by whom she had several children, namely, John Alexander, b. 1711, d. 1764; Ann Alexander, Parthenia Alexander, Gerard Alexander, Sarah Alexander. (See elsewhere for marriages.)
Chandler Fowke5, was second son.
Frances Fowke5, second daughter, married Dr. Gustavus Brown, of Scotland.
Catherine Fowke5, third daughter, married Mr. Ellsworth Bean (?) of Charles County, Md., by whom she had one daughter, who died young.
Elizabeth Fowke5, married Mary, daughter of Col. Richard Forroken (?) of Stafford Coounty, Va. Their children were:
1st, Chandler6; died in infancy.
2nd, Gerard6.
3rd, William Fowke6, married his cousin, Jean, dau. of Roger Fowke, of Charles County, Md. by whom he had one son, who died in infancy.
Here ends the original foregoing manuscript. The following was added years after:
Gerard Fowke6, fifth son of Roger,5, married Miss Harrison.
Their children were:
1st, Roger Fowke7, married Miss Rudd (?), near Port Tobacco, Md. 1785.
2nd, Gerard Fowke7, married his cousin, Margaret Smith, whose mother was a Stone. He was drowned in Nanjemoy Creek in 1784.
Catherine Fowke8, their daughter, married Geo. Robertson, a Scotchman.
Sally Fowke8, married Captain Gustavus Brown, near Port Tobacco, Md.


Gerard Fowke4, (son of Chandler) married Lotty, dau. of Dr. John Robertson.
I have heard from good authority that Gerard Fowke was a married man when he came to the Colonies in the ship with his cousin, George Mason, from whom the Mason family of Virginia descended.
Documents now in existence in Virginia show that he was married. As yet I have learned the names of only two of his children--Gerard, who settled in Maryland, and Jean, who survived Mr. Mercer, of Falmouth.
Charles Fenton Mercer was a descendant of the said Jean Fowke.


Wiley Roy Mason, of King George, says: "My mother tells me the coat-of-arms was slightly varied from the original by her uncle, Dinwiddie Fowke. She thinks the addition made was the Lion, which she understood was the coat-of-arms of the Masons, and that which I now send is probably that of Fowke and Mason combined."

Notes


This source is "Pioneers of the Fourth Ward" by Henry Skipwith. "On the foremost crest of the first of these tidal waves, and therefore in advance of either column, came into the undisturbed canebrakes and forests adjacent to Keller Town--now a small hamlet right on the line of demarkation [state border between La. and Miss.], taking its name from the ancestor of the influential Keller family of East Feliciana, who founded there a new home to replace the one he abandoned in South Carolina--was old Mr. John Palmer, an Irish gentleman of education and refinement, who, like Blannerhasset and Thomas Addis Emmett, after the Irish Rebellion, fled from the storms of his own country to find quiet in ours.
Having coasted through the Carolinas and the Chickasaw purchase, he found the quiet he sought in the solitudes of the forests and canebrakes of the wilds of "Possum Corner", a solitude which was unbroken unless the Irish ex-rebel had a turn towards the sentimental which could find "tongues in trees, books in the running brooks, and sermons in stones;" unless the old fellow, provoked by the growling bears, the screaming panthers, or the sneaking pilferings of the multitudes of possums--for which oleaginous animals the corner is, and always was, renowned--resorted to the use of his trusty rifle. Amid these lonesome enviornments the benevolent old Irish recluse and alcalde administered Spanish law and justice, and trained his three sons Archibald, Adam and Nechemiah[sic], who were all prominent workers in the advancement of a pure Christian civilization."


Earliest known ancestor is John E. Palmer who settled near Tunica, LA about 1790. Sons Archibald, Adam, and Nechemiah.
