General Notes: Wife - Godchilde De Ponthieu

Many people have Godchilde daughter of Hilduin de Ponthieu & Hersende, but according to the dates that I have for the people involved, Eileen Suggs, World Connect db=emsuggs, is correct in placing her as daughter of Guillaume & Maud.

Jeremiah Benskin, father of Mary Benskin, died c. 1703 in Henrico Co., Va., leaving a will in which he named his wife Elizabeth, his daughter Mary, and mentioned his wife's mother (unnamed). According to the date on it, the will of Jeremiah Benskin was already drawn in 1670 [dated 13 April 1670], which would mean his daughter Mary, named in it, was already born by then.
See Weisiger, Colonial Wills of Henrico Co., Va., Vol. I, p. 60. "Henrico County Wills & Deeds 1697-1704," p. 325. Will of Jeremiah Benskin of Varina Parish, planter Estate to be divided into two equal parts; 1/2 to wife Elizabeth, and 1/2 to daughter Mary Benskin. Wife to see to daughter's portion until she is of age. Wife to be sole executrix. Dated April 13, 1670. Wit: John Goode, Ann Higgledey, Sam Bridgewater. Recorded June 1, 1703.

NOTE: This Ann "Higgledey" may well have been the Ann Higley/Hickley who in 1720 would witness the will of Ann (Parker) Easley.

Others have suggested that Jeremiah Benskin's will was possibly misdated for 1690, since a daughter born before 1670 would have been of age at her father's death, while the orphan of Jeremiah Benskin is noted in the Warner edition of the Henrico County, Virginia, Orphans' Court Book on p. 93, Aug. 20, 1705; p. 94-95, Aug. 20, 1706; and p. 98, Aug. 20, 1707, as being under the guardianship of Capt. John Bolling. If the will was not misdated, it is possible that a daughter named Mary who was alive in 1670 had died in the interval and Jeremiah had named a younger child for her.

However, this compiler suggests a more simple solution lying in the simple transposition of numbers: that instead of April 13, 1670, the copyist should have written April 16, 1703. That date would make perfect sense in the context of all the other documents.

Jeremiah Benskin received a posthumous land patent in Manakin Town for 324 acres in 1704 (at the same time as Robert Easley's grant).

From Virginia Easley veasleyd@aol.com



Jeremiah Benskin (1657-1703)of Henrico, VA, whose daughter Mary (1690-1742) married John Easley (1682-1742), is often erroneously listed as the son of Francis Benskin of St. Martin's in the Field, England; this error is now spreading exponentially through the electronic databases. I sincerely hope that the following document will help correct this error before it spread further.

Jeremiah Benskin lived in Virginia at the same time as a Henry Benskin (1659-1691), who is proven to be a son of Francis Benskin in the will below. Henry Benskin left two daughters in Virginia: Mary (who married Wm. Harman) and Frances (who married Wm. Marston). However, no relationship between Henry Benskin and Jeremiah Benskin has, to my knowledge, been established through documentary evidence.

I received a copy of Francis Benskin's will from a researcher in London in December, 2001. I have reproduced the will in its entirety below. You will notice that while several children are mentioned, including Henry of Virginia,
NO MENTION IS MADE OFJEREMIAH BENSKIN, thus making a father/son relationship highly improbable. I have attempted to reproduce the will with all punctuation and capitalization as in the original.

Henrico Co., VA, Order Book 1737-1746, p. 187. July Court 1742. Warham Easley presents an Inventory and Appraisement of the Estate of John Easley Deceased which is ordered to be recorded.

The Henrico Co., VA, book of Deeds and Wills from 1737 through 1746 has disappeared. Therefore, the only record of the will of John Easley is that preserved in the Court Order Book. This makes the total number of his children uncertain. John Easley Junior (John Easley who d. 1746 in Goochland Co., Va.) is proved by the above deed acknowledged in 1739. Warham is proven by his choice of guardian in court in 1742. William, Warham, Robert, and Stephen are proved by the deed which follows. It is not known, therefore, whether John and Mary (Benskin) Easley had more sons than John, William, Warham, Robert, and Stephen (although the compiler later presents suggestions that probably Daniel Easley, who died in 1786 in Halifax Co., VA, and possibly Thomas Easley, who died 1759 in Lunenburg Co., VA, were their sons). Neither is it known whether or not they had daughters, or, if so, what their names might have been. In the next-to-the-last section of the book, there are noted the marriages of several unidentified Easley women in the early eighteenth century.

Cumberland Co., VA, Deed Book 1, p. 519. Aug. 2, 1753. [NOTE: Weisiger abstracts as 2 March 1753].
