2nd Generation _______ First Joseph - Son of Matthew
   
3rd Generation - Three Joseph Stricklands -
         One Joseph married an "Elizabeth" and one married a "Frances" (Frances believed to be Frances Brown).
         Who did the 3rd Joseph marry???
     Joseph (MatJr) - son of Mathew Jr.
     Joseph (Wm)
 - son of William - Is this the one who died in Northampton CO, will dated 1755?

 - son of Samuel


Immigration

IMMIGRATION: October 5, 1674, Complete Book of Emigrants 1661-1699, Peter Wilson Coldham, Genealogical Publishing Co, Inc., pg 228:    "The following apprenticed in Bristol: Joseph Strickland to Edward Gibbes to 4 years in Virginia" (This appears to be a Joseph Strickland not related to Mathew. His 4 years would be up in October 1678 IF the apprentice recording of 1674 was actually recorded the year the apprenticeship began.)

Wills

1728 - (A Joseph mentioned in Will of his father, William) 1728 - Abstract of Wills, 1690-1760, pg 383, May Court, Bertie County, North Carolina, 1728. Sons: William, John (100 acres Roanoak), Joseph 100 acres Roanoak), Matthew, Samuel (“my dwelling plantation”). No wife or executor named. Witnesses: Nathaniel Cooper, Elias Ford. Clerk of the Court: RT Forster (Source: Grimes, John Bryan. Abstracts of North Carolina Wills. Raleigh, NC: North Carolina Department of State, 1910)

1749 - WILL - Joseph Strickland. (Source; Index of Maryland Colonial Wills 1634-1777 compiled by James M. Magruder Jr., Genealogical Publishing, 1986, p. 459, Book 27, page 17, Calvert County MD (There appear to be two Joseph Stricklands in Maryland - could one of them be the Joseph bonded for 4 years to Edward Gibbes in Virginia and then moved to Maryland?)

1755 - WILL Northampton CO, NC - September 25, 1755, Northampton County, North Carolina, proven in November Court, Deed Bk 3, pg 419:
   The deceased Joseph Strickland, names heirs: Wife, Elizabeth; Son, Axum (he gives son his plantation); and Daughters Rachel (land on Great Branch), Abigail and Olive. Executor: Wife, Elizabeth. Witnesses: William Moore, John Powell. Clerk of the Court, I. Edwards. (Source: Grimes, John Bryan. Abstracts of North Carolina Wills. Raleigh, NC: North Carolina Department of State, 1910)  NOTE: Could the daughters names of "Abigail" after Samuel's (2nd Gen) wife, and/or daughter "Olive" after William's (2nd Gen) wife ?? If there is clue from son named "Exum", I don't know what it is, do you? The name Exum was a surname known in Isle of Wight County, Virginia - could the mother of these children (not mentioned, presumed deceased) be from the Exum family?   ADDITIONAL NOTE: There is a 1765 Northampton CO deed in which the heir to this land, Exum Strickland was deceased and the land left to him by Joseph had been given to the "eldest brother's son, Thomas Strickland," who chose to sell it in 1765 (see deed dated 1765 in Land Section below). This would mean that Joseph had a younger son and grandson, who were not provided for or named in his will. No doubt Joseph was following the law of primogeniture which provides that all property be left to the eldest son.

1766 - Edgecombe CO, North Carolina - WITNESS for Edgecombe CO, NC, Deed Book O, Page 152.    Jesse Baggett of Edgecombe County, planter, to Abraham Baggett, Jr. of same, 11 July 1766, for £9 a tract of 60 acres on the head of Little Contentnea Creek at the mouth of Quilet Branch and on Baggett's Branch along the line of his father's deed. Witness: Joseph Strickland and Nathan Baggett.

1767 - Northampton CO, NC - WITNESS for Will #101 of Robert Cobb - Oct. 14, 1765-  Proven in Nov Crt, 1767 . Wife is Mary DeBerry COBB, dtr of Capt John DeBerry & Jane Sowerby.    Wits: John DeBerry, Henry DeBerry, Joseph Strickland   (Abstracts of Deeds, Northampton Co., NC, Bks. 1 & 2, by Margaret M. Hofmann & Northampton Co., NC Wills 1759-1808, by Margaret M. Hofmann)

1769 - BUYER in Sale of Estate of Robert Cade: (Bk A Bute Co NC (Bute became Warren Co)):
Sale of Estate, 3 Jun 1769: Chattles of Robert Cade at Public Auction Buyers: Drury Cade, Joseph Wright, James Alford, Lodwick Alford, Mary Sanders, John Farrell, ELIJAH STRICKLAND, George Martin, Mary Manard, Elizabh. Medling, Henry Freeman, William

1779 WILL - Nash County, NC, March 4, 1779, Joseph Strickland deceased, Nash County North Carolina Wills, pg 17, April Court 1781: Sons Jesse, David; Daughters Patience, Mary, Elizabeth. Grandsons: Marmaduke Mason (100 acres whereon I live), and Burwell Strickland. Executors: Sons David Strickland and Ralph Mason (Son-in-law). (No wife named, so he is presumed a widower - some have his wife as Frances Brown)

1783 - Northampton CO, NC - MENTIONED in & WITNESS for Will of Nicholas JUDKINS, Northampton co., NC, WB 1, p 255- February 22, 1783-June Court, 1783:     Wife Mary Judkins (Mary Anderson, Dtr of Carolus Anderson); son James Judkins; son John Judkins, and son Joel Judkins, 300 Ac which I bought of John Long and Joseph Strickland, 1 still, 1 bed, etc.; son Carolus Judkins, 50 Ac as by deed, 13 May, 1782 (1728) from William Boon to Carolus Anderson 1 bed, etc.; son Jesse Judkins, daughter Faith Judkins. EXRS: John Knox, Richard Jordan     Wits: Abraham Stevenson, Jesse Vick, Joseph Strickling, his mark

1788 WILL - Nash County, Abstract of Wills (North Carolina) , pg 195: This abstract just lists names, so we don't know for sure the identity of the deceased - the following is exactly copied from the book : Joseph, Jesse, David, Patience, Mary, Elizabeth and Burwell. (This appears to be the same children as listed in the will above, dated 1779 and which was probated in 1781. . Seems very strange for the same named heirs to be on a will 9 years later, unless this is the will of Joseph's wife??

1789 - Robeson CO, NC - Abstract of North Carolina Wills, page 267. This book lists under the alphabet letter "S": Strickland, Joseph, Levi, Annie. This book gives code numbers for counties where this will was recorded which I didn't copy back in 2001 when I looked at this book, and doesn't give any citations. The following October 16, 1789 will left by Joseph Strickland (or Stricklin), seems to be the will referred to: "Joseph Stricklin, Planter, in Robeson County left Levi Stricklin, a son of Elizabeth Stricklin, widow of Jacob Stricklin deceased, one hundred acres of land where he had lived, his horse, bridle, saddle, a cow and calf and sow and pigs, and one gun. The rest of his estate he left to wife Anny Stricklin. Jacob Alford and Sion Alford were executors of his estate. Dated October 16, 1789.Witness: John Fiveash. Signed as Joseph Strickland."

1790 - WILL, Nash County, North Carolina Wills - Joseph Strickland heirs: Sons --- Jacob and Hardy (Could the sons' names be a clue as to Joseph's father? Since Matthew Jr. had a son named Jacob, could this Joseph be his son?)

1796 - Robeson CO, NC - Deed Book L, Page 205, Robeson County, NC.   "Levi Strickland of South Carolina deeds to Sion Alford, "Certain land granted to Joseph Strickland and by him willed to said Levi Strickland in Robeson County, NC. Dated: 2 March 1796"

1805 - Rockbridge CO, VA - Will of Joseph Stricklin, Amherst County, Virginia, Wife, Abigail. Sons: Joseph Strickland II (given land in Rockbridge CO VA), Samuel Stricklin [Samuel married Mary Turley, January 24, 1801] and Abel Stricklen; Daughters: Nancy Stricklin Witt, Abigail Stricklin Rippetoe, and Amy Stricklin Strand. (This Joseph is said to have been born either in Ireland or Virginia. Eldest son, Joseph II, received land from his father, located in Rockbridge CO, VA - see the land grant dated 1788 below, where his father originally received this land.. Many of the children of this Joseph moved to Missouri (some to Washington County) where many subsequent generations remained.) [Recorded in Will Book No.4, Page 169, at Amherst County Clerk's Office, Amherst VA]
