Carol Middleton's Webpages
Reconstructed by D La Pierre Ballard
BalCro, 19-JAN-2007

This webpage is dedicated to the memory of Carol Middleton who passed
away on 20-SEP-2000. She did phenomenal genealogical work on the
Bassano and Lanier families. She was also a renowned writer and
artist.

Many of Carol's webpages were saved as text files while her website
was still in place. This file is from those text files.

CHAPTER: 001: Carol Middleton's Introductory Page

Carol Middleton's Genealogy Home Page

When I was a little girl, I knew I was an artist. I drew and drew and
drew. Perfectly natural, my mother told me. After all, she herself was
a gifted artist as was her Lanier mother. How right Mother was! After
reading about the Laniers and also the Bassanos, I am sure where we
got our artistic gifts. The Laniers and Bassanos were artists, poets,
writers and musicians of long ago ... and of now! Add to my Lanier
grandmother, my mother, and me-- all the many gifted others with
Lanier and Bassano blood. We have the gift! It is in our genes!

Ponder the LANIER / BASSANO LEGACY.
Thus, the LANIER line is where I start. I know also of the artistic
and musical gifts of my BASSANO family. But I want to know about the
others, whose lines branch into and out of the Lanier / Bassano
lines-- the MALONES, the BIRDS, the WYNNES, the FOWKES, the
THOROWGOODS and all the others. Their pages are here too. And what am
of my Scottish ancestors -- the NICOLS, the MacKINNONS, and the
DOUGLASSES. Maybe my love of exploring and an abiding love of the
land. It seems the more I learn of my ancestors, the more I understand
myself. To paraphrase an old friend of the family, "... we are such
stuff as genes are made of."

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there, I do not sleep
I am a thousand winds that blow
I am the diamonds glint on snow
I am the sunlight on ripened grain
I am the gentle autumn rain
when you awaken in the mornings hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circled flight
I am the soft star that shines at night
Do not stand by my grave and cry.
I am not there, I did not die ...

A poem thought adapted from a saying of the Makah Indians, and here
from a Florida grave marker, shared by Fanny Young.

CHAPTER: 002: Arderne
**********************************************************************
Carol Middleton's Arderne line
Lynn Arderne shares with us the family's place in history: during the
English Civil War of the 17th century Sir Ralph Arderne (1608)
supported Oliver Cromwell but his son, Sir John Arderne, supported
King Charles II and went into exile with him until the Restoration,
when he was knighted at Whitehall and appointed Sheriff of Cheshire. A
similar situation arises during the Wars of Roses when our family
supported the Lancastrians, through marriage and property ties.

Sir John de ARDERNE and Margaret de ALDFORD
Sir Walkyn de ARDERNE and Agnes de ORREBY
Sir Peter de ARDERNE and Margery (-?)
Sir John de ARDERNE and Margery ap MADOC
Sir John de ARDERNE and Alice de VENABLES
Peter de ARDERNE and Cicely de BREDBURY
Charles de ARDERNE and Elizabeth RADCLIFFE
John ARDERNE and Ellen DUNCALFE
George ARDERNE and Katherine PALMER
Richard ARDERNE and Margaret GREENE
Alice ARDERNE and John DENNE

With thanks to Steve Brown, Lynn Arderne and Bruce Ardern Note from
Lynn Arderne: There is a South African branch to the family., begun in
the early 1800s, when a young Arderne son, Richard Crewe Arderne,
decided to make his fortune in South Africa. Unfortunately he and his
wife died shortly after arriving in SA in 1849 but their son, John
George Arderne (b. 1838), was the first male Arderne born in Africa
and the Southern African branch are all descended from this one man.

Bruce Ardern has Ardernes in Cheshire -- Altrincham, Timperley &
Mere.

DISCLAIMER: please bear in mind, some of the information on these
Arderne pages, especially the dates may be skewed. Since I am still
gathering material, I have not corrected the more obvious. Please
pardon those errors and know that in time, I hope to get it right.
Some newer material gleaned from "The Magna Charta Sureties" by
Frederick Lewis Weis.

James WATTS and Susanna TAYLOR

With thanks to Jim Woodyard and many thanks to Dawn Watts Westfall,
Steve Etheridge and Al Walker

Husband: James Watts

LifeNotes: He was a private in the SC lines during the Revolution
(from DAR Records Vol. 108, Pages 170-171, "Southern Watts, Colonial
and Revolutionary Soldiers").

There is a 1769 deed acknowledgement between James and Susannah Watts
and Nathaniel Manson in the court records of Halifax Co, VA. James
Watts was a witness 12/12/1768 to the Halifax Co, VA will of James
Taylor, who gave all to wife Allis (Alice?); other witnesses were John
Shackelford and Beaverley Longan. There is note that in 1769 some of
James Taylor's account was paid to James Watts. He is listed among
others, as a defendant against Alice Taylor in 1770 and 1771.

There is an additional Halifax Co, VA 1773 court reference to him in
a proceeding involving Ralph McNair with William Caison (Cason??) as
surety.

Born: 11/6/1729 in Middlesex Co, VA. (year and place from "Southern
Watts, Colonial and Revolutionary Soldiers".) A second birthdate has
been given for him in a DAR document of 1/6/1719. He was the first
deacon of Greenville Presbyterian Church. My feeling is that the 2nd
birthdate might be correct, considering his parents' marriage date of
4/12/1716.

Married: 1755

Died: 2/16/1781 SC; buried Greenville Presbyterian Church, Abbeville
Dist., SC

Parents: John Watts and Elizabeth Bailey

CHAPTER: 006: Bassano1
**********************************************************************
The sudden appearance of Emilia Bassano (Madame Lanier) might seem
strange in this series on women musicians, for Emilia was not a
musician, and it is above all as a poet that she is present for us
today. But when researching the musical life of Venice in the late
16th century by chance one discovers the Bassano family and the
fascinating destiny (though still laden with mystery) of Emilia, how
can one resist the desire of sharing this stroke of luck? In the wake
of Emilia, the beautiful Moor, appear other characters who are more
well known, including a certain Shakespeare ...

The adventure begins in Venice at the beginning of the 16th century,
when a family of musicians originating from Bassano, a small nearby
town, established itself there. The probable reason for their move?
The Bassanos were of Jewish descent, and the town of Bassano most
likely expelled them. They found in Venice a city more tolerant, for
the moment. The first document mentioning a musician by the name of
Bassano comes from the archives of the Scuola di San Marco, concerning
a procession in which "Ser Alvise da Bassan di maestro Jeronimo"
figured as trumpeter or cornettist: Alvise de Bassano, son of
Jeronimo, for whom other documents attest his existence as member of
the Doge's band of piffari. To give the details of Alvise's career in
Venice, and later Bologna, would take us too far afield, but for those
interested in the lives of the Bassanos, we mention a basic work which
has been most valuable to us in the preparation of this article: The
Bassanos, Venetian Musicians and Instrument Makers in England, 1531
1665, by David Lasocki and Roger Prior, published by Scholar Press.

In the 1520s, Alvise seems to have made a trip to England as a player
of the sackbut. In fact, the documents concerning the musicians at the
court of Henry VIII mention, in addition to the four (!) English
musicians stemming from the court orchestra (which had sunk quite low
since it had been left to Henry by his father) six newly arrived
Italians, among the names of which one finds "Alvisy de Blasia." If
the transcription of Alvise for Alvisy seems obvious, what can
"Blasia" mean? There are various opinions: perhaps it can be traced to
San Biasio, one of the churches in Venice? Whatever the case may be,
what is certain is that Alvise returned to Venice in 1528. In 1531, he
went back to England, this time with three of his brothers, Jasper,
John, and Anthony, all in the musical service of Henry VIII. They
returned to Venice in 1536. Then, in 1537, another brother, Baptista,
left for England. This brother is even more interesting, since he is
the future father of ... Emilia. The fascinating quadrille continued,
with the departure for London in 1538 of Anthony, followed by Jacomo,
another brother, as instrument maker / wine importer! To say the
least, the Bassano family was not put off by traveling! What also
seems evident is that the talent of the six sons of Jeronimo (in order
of birth, Jacomo, Alvise, Jasper, John, Anthony, and Baptista), as
instrumentalists and makers of wind instruments, was recognized not
only in Venice but also in London. In the years 1535 1540, Henry VIII
decided to improve the musical staff at his court, and he charged his
Venetian agent, Edmond Harvel, to recruit the Bassano brothers. The
Bassanos demanded substantial guarantees, for in order to leave
Venice, they were required to obtain the authorization of the Doge and
would lose their employment there. Even more important, the Bassanos
were of Jewish origin, which meant that they ran certain risks in the
contemporary political climate of London, even if Henry VIII, who had
broken definitively with Rome, sought their goodwill.

The negotiations were successful, and at the end of 1539, Alvise,
John, Baptista, and Jasper, along with their respective families, made
a definitive departure from Venice for England, rejoining Anthony
there. (Jacomo had returned to Italy on the death of his father,
Jeronimo, probably to take over his business as instrument maker).
Here we are unable to follow their adventure: for this one should
consult the book mentioned above. In three generations, the
Bassanos-musicians, jurists, and merchants- became, through a few
solid alliances, one of the more respectable families of the English
"gentry," endowed with a family crest and several properties. And now,
finally, to our female character, Emilia. (This preamble was necessary
to introduce our character and understand her personality.)

Emilia Bassano was baptised on January 25, 1569. We know the details
of her youth through the notebooks of the astrologer Simon Forman,
whom she consulted a number of times, starting in 1597. Thus, we learn
that she lost her father at about the age of seven, then her mother,
at the age of 18. Her father, Baptista Bassano, was one of the six
brothers mentioned above. Her mother was Margaret Johnson, Baptista's
concubine. Shortly before the passing of her mother, Emilia became
lady-in-waiting for the Countess of Kent, thus coming into contact
with the Court, where her great beauty, dark complexion, and black
hair (unusual in England) made her stand out. Numerous conquests are
attributed to her, but she was officially the recognized mistress of
the old Lord Henry Hunsdon, the Lord Chamberlain, who kept her in
sumptuous fashion. She had a son by him, also named Henry. To make the
birth more respectable, Emilia was married off to Alphonso Lanier,
musician of the Queen, in October 1592. From their union Odillia was
born, to die at the age of nine months.

CHAPTER: 007: Bassano2
**********************************************************************
The Masque of Oberon was performed for Prince Henry at Whitehall for
New Year's, 1611. This was the year of publication of Emilia Bassano's
book: the coincidence is too striking to not take this disc as an
illustration of her biography, especially as compositions by the
Bassanos are included. During the masques, which frequently punctuated
life at court, the members of the royal family mixed with aristocrats,
dancers, musicians, and actors amidst sumptuous settings and costumes.

Surviving in a very fragmented state, this masque was very patiently
reconstructed by Philip Pickett, who even took care to arrange the
musicians in the same way as in the Banqueting House of the English
court. Needless to say, the visual aspect of the entire experience is
lacking, but the effectiveness of the musical performance is
sufficient to transport us back in time several centuries, and to
imagine Emilia Bassano amidst the fairies.

----------------------------------------------------------------------
The Lanier family was already linked to the Bassano family, since
Nicholas Lanier, court musician, had married in his second marriage
Lucretia Bassano, daughter of Anthony, and thus Emilia's cousin.
Huguenot, originally from Rouen, the Lanier family arrived at the
court (represented by Nicholas, flutist and cornettist) in 1561.

Nicholas also had six musical sons (the parallel between the two
families is fascinating), including Alphonso, born in 1563 from his
first marriage. Alphonso Lanier tried unsuccessfully to have himself
ennobled, particularly after accompanying the Count of Essex on his
Irish Campaign. This permanent barrier to a higher social rank, and
thus a better financial situation, would make Emilia say (to her dear
astrologer) that her husband had ruined her and obliged her to ply the
trade of courtesan in order to survive. Whatever the case, the poor
Alphonso Lanier would never be more than Captain of Arms ... Alphonso,
who died on September 20, 1613, used far more energy in attracting the
attention of his protectors to his feats of arms, and in seeking
financial support, than he did in plying his subaltern trade of
flutist. After the death of Queen Elizabeth in 1603, he no longer
appeared on the lists of musicians of her successor, James I.

Emilia began her confidences with Simon Forman in 1597, on the
occasion of one of the military expeditions of her husband, this time
to the Azores. Simon Forman was reputed to be attentive to his
clients, the relationship being part of the treatment which he
advertised. What exactly would he have received from Emilia? We do not
know very much: perhaps she let herself be drawn in by the astrologer,
but not to the point of becoming his mistress. What is certain is that
in 1600 all relations between them ceased, Forman addressing her very
amiably as sorceress. Unfortunately for us, from this date on it
becomes rather more difficult to trace the existence of Emilia
Bassano. It is known that she stayed for a while with the Countess of
Cumberland at Cookham. Then, four years after the death of Alphonso,
she obtained authorization to open a school in the parish of
St-Giles-in-the-Fields, from which she obtained some income toward
living expenses. (The passing of her husband had given rise to a long
lawsuit between Emilia and the Lanier family.) She lived the rest of
her life in relative poverty, was arrested and evicted from her
school-home in 1619 for non-payment of rent, and was buried on April
3, 1645, at St. James Clerkenwelle at the age of 66. Her son, Henry,
who had in turn become flutist at the court, predeceased her in 1633.

Such an existence, interesting but scarcely unusual from the point of
view of the women of her time, does not justify her posterity. A
beautiful courtesan, from a lineage of musicians, adored, then
abandoned, Emilia is first and foremost the author of an undisputed
masterwork of English poetry, Salve Deus Rex Judaeorum, published in
1611, when she was 42. The first woman published at the end of the
English Renaissance, she reveals in this work not only an effective
pen but also a strong character, which one would describe today as
proto-feminist. Each of the nine poems which make up the collection is
preceded by a dedication (sometimes lengthy) to women of her time: in
order, Queen Anne, Princess Elizabeth, "all virtuous women in
general", and the Countess of Cumberland, her protector. Passionately
converted, Emilia opts nevertheless for a title which salutes God
first of all as King of the Jews. In the contemporary context, how
could one have any doubt about her background? Moreover, Emilia does
not hesitate to reinterpret the Scriptures in her own way: the
principal subject is a meditation on the Passion of Christ,
attributing the responsibiblity for the Crucifixion to men alone. In a
section entitled "Eve's Apologie in Defense of Women", Emilia gives
Adam the responsibility for original sin, and deduces from this that
today women must defend their religious, social, and political
equality with men. This was in 1611, let us remember!

Finally, the other claim to fame for Emilia Bassano was that of
having been, without a doubt, the mistress of William Shakespeare. We
say "without a doubt", though this theory, advanced in The Times by
the historian A. L. Rowse, is subject to controversy. But all the
evidence seems to suggest it. Emilia's mother, as we know, was named
Margaret Johnson: she was the aunt of Robert Johnson, lutenist and
composer, musician for Shakespeare's theater company. Another piece of
evidence is the fact that the Lord Chamberlain, Lord Hunsdon, Emilia's
lover, became in 1594 the patron of Shakespeare's company of actors.
The scant facts which are known of Shakespeare's biography will never
allow absolute certainty. Shakespeare's sonnets are made up of two
parts: the first, dedicated to a young man he became very attached to,
most probably the young Count of Southampton the second has for its
theme the love of the poet for a woman of easy virtue ("The bay where
all men ride"), though married, with dark hair and eyes, known as the
"Dark Lady". We know that Emilia, Italian, was of Sephardic Jewish
origin, thus of a very Mediterranean type. Another strange
coincidence: the romantic character in the Merchant of Venice is a
Venetian named ... Bassanio. Where did Shakespeare hunt up this name,
and where did he get his detailed knowledge of Italy? Moreover, actors
and musicians mixed freely at the Court, and one knows that
Shakespeare, as well as Ben Jonson, collaborated with Thomas Lupo,
another relative of Emilia's through marriage. Finally, Shakespeare,
in one of these sonnets, calls his mistress "my music". Who, more than
Emilia-Bassano by birth, Lanier by marriage-was immersed in music,
even if we do not know if she herself was a musician?

Emilia Bassano, poet, courtesan, mistress of Shakespeare? Whatever
the truth may be, Emilia, as we see her, is a fascinating and
mysterious woman who, today as yesterday, does not reveal herself
completely and retains her independence. But she is worthy of being
known, and above all serves as a guide to lead us into the musical
life of England in the late-16th and 17th centuries.

In 1994, a musician named Peter Goodwin, born in 1945, a member of
the Philharmonia Orchestra, professor of sackbut and trombone at the
Royal College of Music in London, member of His Majesty's Sagbutts and
Cornetts, the English Baroque Soloists, and The English Concert,
decided to change his name: from then on he would be called Peter
Bassano. He was the distant descendant of one Giovanni Bassano. From
henceforth, he consecrated himself to the repertoire of his forebears
...

Chamberlain Henry Hunsdon, son of Mary Boleyn (former mistress to
Henry VIII, sister to Queen Anne Boleyn, aunt of Queen Elizabeth I),
patron to William Shakespeare's theatrical company. When Emelia became
pregnant with Henry's child, a marriage was arranged for her by the
Queen (cousin to Lord Hunsdon).

I suspect our Emelia knew How to Make an Elizabethan Corset. You can,
too. Visit While there pick up tips for making other necessary items
such as fartheringales and bumrolls.

While you're there, drop by Ye Olde Dress Shoppe.

Emelia married Alphonse Lanier of the Lanier family of musicians; he
was in turn given a position in the Irish Service and so he was often
away. The child was named Henry, after his father. Emelia had a second
child, a daughter, Odilla, who died as an infant. She ended her affair
with Hunsdon in the early 1590s. She was a published feminist poet.
See a bit of Elizabethan gossip about Emelia and a family friend named
William Shakespeare.

Lucreece BASSANO and Nicholas LANIER

Visit a Renaissnace Town.

Wife: Lucreece Bassano

LifeNotes: she was the daughter of the Bassano family of musicians
who came to England to serve Henry VIII. They probably originated from
the city of Bassano del Grappa near Venice. At that time, the fabulous
Renaissance courts of the Medici were winding down and the artists and
musicians of those courts were seeking work elsewhere.

So one can imagine that our Lucreece was of a very cultured
background. Assuredly, she was as instrumental as her husband,
Nicholas Lanier, in passing her own enlightenment on to her children.

Born: probably 1530-40, London, England

Married: before 1565 in England

Died: about 1/4/1633-34; buried in buried at St Alphege, East
Greenwich, England

Parents: Anthony Bassano and Elena de Nazzi. See their Bassano page.

Husband: Nicholas Lanier

LifeNotes: Nicholas Lanier of Rouen, France, played the flute and the
cornet. He was master flutist to Henri II of France.

During the Protestant persecutions, he was a Huguenot to England with
safe passage arranged for him by his patroness, the widowed queen
Catherine de Medici. Nicholas arrived at the new court of Elizabeth I
in 1561.

Behold Elizabeth I and check out her garments!

The bright young queen Elizabeth I, thrilled at the New Age she
generated, drew artists, poets, scholars and musicians to England from
all over Europe. Naturally they wished to be near the brilliant star
Elizabeth. Here the Arts were glorified. Here was the epicenter of a
cultural explosion. This was the time of William Shakespeare and Ben
Johnson. Explorers such as Francis Drake were discovering new worlds;
Walter Raleigh was forming expeditions colonize them.

The Laniers were right in the midst of it. In court, marriages were
arranged by the Queen. Nicholas Lanier, was paired with Lucreece
Bassano, daughter of an Italian musician of the Royal Orchestra.
Nicholas was made Master of Flutes. The couple prospered, acquiring a
great deal of property in East Greenwich, Blackheath, and nearby.
Three generations of this remarkable family served the British
Monarchy as court musicians, poets and artists; their efforts are
well-documented- and their efforts were well-rewarded.

Born: probably about 1520-30 probably in Rouen, France

Married: before 1565 in England

There is a book, published by Clarkson N. Potter, called The Poems of
Shakespeare's Dark Lady (a reprint of the original, printed in 1611).
In his introduction to this book of Emelia Bassano Lanier's poetry
(Salve Deus Rex Judeorum--Hail, God, King of the Jews), the
Elizabethan scholar and author A. L. Rouse speculated that Emelia was
The Dark Lady of Shakespeare's Sonnets.

Prior to her marriage to Alphonse Lanier, she was involved with the
Lord Chamberlain, Lord Henry Hunsdon, son of Mary Boleyn, nephew of
Anne Boleyn. It is said that the son Henry Lanier, born to Emelia, was
Lord Hunsdon's. The marriage to Alphonse was arranged by the Queen to
settle the problem. Alphonse was conveniently at sea most of the
time-- a gentleman volunteer, on voyages under command of the Earl of
Southampton.

The affair with William Shakespeare supposedly took place soon after
this marriage. We know Shakespeare wrote hints of his own life into
his work -- all artists do that. Remembering this, one can "read in"
all sorts of "proof", when looking at his plays.

Looking at the Sonnets to the Dark Lady, it is clear theirs was a
passionate, if uneasy, affair. There are enumerable defensive "swipes"
at her. In reading Emelia's poems, it is clear she was high-spirited
--a powerful personality, as Rouse puts it-- with a gift for words.
And she was also a woman with a cause, that of women wronged.

Still there are glimpses of Emelia's relationship with William
Shakespeare. It took place during his early days in London where he
had moved his family to live in Bishopsgate. It was also during the
early stages of patronage by the Earl of Southampton.

Rouse describes a skit of Love's Labour's Lost, played out at the
house of the Earl of Southampton, with Emelia as Rosaline and the
actor-dramatist Shakespeare himself as Berowne (Biron). And imagine A
Midsummer's Nights Dream, before it was officially presented, played
in the forests of Southampton's estate. See Emelia as Hermia, seeking
her fickle lost love ... Delicious!!

William BEALL and (-?)

Husband: William Beall

LifeNotes: He was a braboner -- a linen weaver -- in St. Andrews,
Fife, Scotland.

"The Index of Testaments for the Commissariot of St. Andrews, records
on 8th November 1653 the will of Christian Traill. The Testament was
given up by her husband William Bell, younger, braboner in St.
Andrews, and mentions William Bell, elder, also a braboner in St.
Andrews, presumably her father-in-law.

It is possible that the William Beall who witnessed the baptism of
Alexander Bell's son William in 1647 was this William Bell, elder,
braboner in St. Andrews. Also that William Bell, elder, was the father
of both Alexander Bell who married Margaret Ramsay and William Bell,
younger. Readily available records in Scotland revealed nothing else
identifiable with this familiy in Fife County or St. Andrews parish."

This suit begins with Wyatt complaining that he has been slandered by
being called a thief in public. Caswell then explains that Wyatt had
been "something in drink more than was convenient at the time". Four
more testimonies in the case follow.

# Bird has become by this time a Justice and is hearing testimony.
This case continues with statements by Bird that the agument between
the two women resulted in Mrs. Gibson being struck on her arm with a
stick hurled by Mrs. Stevenson. Several more witnesses testified.

Hamelton Jun. Michael Wallis, Litt. Hardyman.

Neighbors were the Tuckers, Nathaniel Malone and George Booth, Sr.

William Tucker. A Prince George County record of 7/11/1723, says "...
300 acres ordered to William Tucker from Nathaniel Malone, for whom it
was surveyed ..." Was left no land in his father's will because he had
received the land 8 years before hs father died. Known as William
Malone of Bristol Parish, Prince George Co, VA (or Dinwiddie Co.)

In 5 /1748, William began to amass his Brunswick Co, VA property for
the apparent purpose of providing land for his children., On 5/5/1748,
"William Malone of Bristol Parish, Prince George Co, for the love I
have for my son-in-law Drury Robertson of St. Andrews Parish in
Brinswick Co, deed 180 acres in St. Andrews Parish on the south side
of the Meherrin River ..." Later a deed gift of a slave girl named
Phan was given for "love, good will and affection to my son-in-law
Drury Robertson."

On 7/29/1762, "William Malone of Dinwiddie Co. deeds to George Malone
of Brunswick for 5 shillings "one negroe Toney" and acreage on the
north side of Taylor's Creek; "the land on whicxh he now lives, the
same that was granted to the said William Malone in Williamsburg."

On 1/1/1764 in a deed, "William Malone of Bristol Parish, Dinwiddie
Co. deeds for affection to son Reuben Malone of Brunswick Co. all the
land belonging to William Malone on the south side of Taylor's Creek,
and one negro boy, Signed: William Malone and Ann (X) Malone."

Note that William's eldest son William did not receive a deed gift
because by law the eldest son would inherit his father's lands in
Bristol Parish.

Additional land deeded to William Malone of Bristol Parish in
Dinwiddie Co, for  100 in current money, by John and Martha Williamson
of Prince George County on 6/19/1753 355 acres bounded by Stony Creek
and bounded partly by Stoney Creek at Pigg Quarter Gut, Mr. George
Booth, John Curtis, the Dinwiddie line, the Duckpond Branch and the
said Malone."

Note that the land of the other Wm. Malone (whose will was proved
1745) was never described as on Stoney Creek. That Wm. Malone lived at
Southwark Parish on the Nottaway River, very close to this Wm. Malone.

Cornelius CARGILL and his wives Sarah Roberts, Mary LUCY Anderson,
widow, Elizabeth Daniel, maybe Judith Walker, and Hannah (-?) Blanks,
widow

Husband: Cornelius Cargill

LifeNotes: The earliest mention of him in court records occurs
12/21/1715 in Surry Co, VA, although that does not mean he lived
there. He probably was living in Prince George Co, VA at that time.
Around 1717 he was appointed Constable of that county. He bought
property -- 50 acres on Cat Tail Swamp-- from Charles Anderson (son of
Mary Lucy Anderson Cargill) 3/4/1718 in Prince George Co, VA. The part
of Prince George Co. where he lived became part of the new Brunswick
Co, VA. In 1728 there was a record of a land transfer in his name in
Brunswick Co.

There is record of a land transfer in 1727 in Surry Co, VA., land he
had bought from Mary's sons. He received monetary rewards many times
for killing wolves who roamed the county-- 4 pounds, 20 shillings each
time, according to custom. In 1736, Cornelius Cargill was appointed
overseer of the road from the Roanoke River near Hogans to the Long
Branch; such an appointment was considerd an honor for it was every
man's duty to assist in the making and upkeep of public roads.

From the DeedPool: typ patent: ref VPB 20 p215-216 dat 15 March

Thanks to Joy King for the following 5 items: In 1746, he was made a
Justice of the Court in the new county of Lunenburg Co, VA; he kept
that position for 17 years.

1746-48 Sunlight On The Southside by Landon C. Bell p.55: At May
Court, 1746 the County Court of Lunenburg Co, VA made appointment of
list takers, as shown by the following orders: ... "Cornelius Cargill,
gent., is appointed to take the list of tithables in this county from
the mouth of Little Roanoke River to the mouth of Blew Stone, and so
to the county line, and also in the fork of Roanoke." ... p.55 None of
the lists taken pursuant to these appointments have been found.

At June Court, 1747 ... Cornelius Cargil, "in the fork of Roanoke."
... None of the lists taken for 1747, pursuant to these appointments,
have been found.

At June Court, 1748 ... Cornelius Cargill, "in the fork and to
Butcher's Creek." ...

Note jk: pp.64-66: His list has 78 names on it including William,
Ephriam, Henry, James & Edward Sizemore.

On 7/1/1755, a deed states Cornelius sold 400 acres known as
Cargill's Elkhorn, to Theophilus Field; this land may have been in
Prince George Co. He also bought 2 Black slaves, 4 feather beds, 15
cattle and 20 hogs. interestingly, another deed states that he sold
the same to William Byrd later. It is thought that much was passed
back and forth in gambling transactions. See further extracts.

After the death of Hannah Blanks, Cornelius no longer had a home, he
then bought 400 acres on the north side of the Stanton River in
Halifax Co, VA. Two years later he gave this land to Menoah Tinsley,
his son-in-law in return for the payment of all his debts.

cohabitated and had issue.

From Patty Myers: Elizabeth was living with him [Cornelius],

Byrd made a notation of this fact in his diary (Boyd, William K. and
Percy C. Adams, William Byrd's Histories of the Dividing Line betwixt
Virginia and North Carolina, p. 307). She was still a femme sole on 25
Aug 1731 when she was granted, as Elizabeth Daniel, 466 acres (New
Land) on south side of Jeneto Creek, adjacent William Watts corner &
George Hicks, even though by that time she probably had had most or
all of her children by Cornelius (Nell Marion Nugent, Cavaliers and
Pioneers, Abstracts of Virginia Land Patents and Grants, Vol. 3, p.
405). She was finally called his wife on 2 Jul 1735 in a deed from
Cornelius and Elizabeth Cargill to Philip O'Reiley (Brunswick Co, VA.
Deeds, Vol. 1, pp. 196-97).

Cornelius (Neil) CARGILL and Sarah WILSON Harris
Not of my direct line but of interest to others

Thanks to Emily Davis and to Elaine Ratliff and thanks for the
updated material on Cornelius III from Julie Kersey Brewer based on
"And the Tree Grew" by Millie Wolf

Husband: Cornelius (Neil) Cargill

LifeNotes: He received several grants in SC, the oldest grant dated
1767 (400 acres in Berkeley Co, warrant 3/3/1767, the land was on a
branch of Little River called Beaverdam Branch, bounded on the east by
land laid out to John Cargill and on land laid out to David Tyger and
... to James Ryan, and to the west on land laid out to Macheness Good.
All other sides vacant); this is thought to be the land on which they
were living when their daughter Tabitha was born. In 1772, he received
350 acres on Cane Creek in Craven Co, SC and 100 acres on Raeburns
Creek.

In 1779 Cornelius received 200 acres on the same river; this land,
surveyed by Pat Cunningham 12/7/1789, bounded land laid out to James
Boyd, John McNeese, Thomas Dendy, John Cargill, and David Degert.

From History of Edgefield County, South Carolina, the following is an
account of Neil Cargill's death:

"Spring of 1781 ... siege of the Fort at Ninety-Six by General Greene
... Col. Cruger the commander of the Fort ... The Tories under
Carghill went up early in the Spring to the assistance of Cruger ...
After Cruger left 96, having abandoned the fort, while passing down
the country, he permitted Carghill's men to visit their homes, and
they on their way passed the house of Captain Solomon Pope, where they
found three of Pope's men, Aaron Wever, Joe Allen, & Fred Sissan, whom
they made prisoners. Having no place of confinement after the loss of
Ninety-Six, they took them into a swamp near by on Mine Creek and put
them to death.

Captain Pope immediately called his company together, hastened to
Mount Williang and called on Capt. James Butler for assistance. With
their forces united they met the troops under Carghill in the fork of
Cloud's Creek and Little Saluda, where a bloody fight ensued, in which
Carghill's men were completely exterminated. It is said that about
half of them were killed after they surrendered, so great was the
exasperation of the Whigs at their conduct in murdering Pope's men a
short time before. Only one man was left alive, Henry Etheridge."

Motto: Inspire to victory!

Clan Currie, known in the old days as Clan McMuhurrich, were founded
by Muiredach O'Daly of the bardic family. The designation of Bard was
heriditary. Muiredach was forced to flee to Scotland in 1213 after
slaying the Chief of the O'Donnels (who had the NERVE to demand rent
from the great poet), settling in Finlaggan, stronghold of Donald,
Lord of the Isles (grandson of the Celtic-Norse founder of the Kingdom
of Innesgal) and giving support against the Stewarts.

LifeNotes: ordained an Elder of Harmony Presbyterian Church. The
church, which was begun in 1800, was a log meeting house built on the
farm of John D. McLean, about four miles east of present day Ellerbe,
N.C. John's great great grandson, R. C. McLean, shares with us the
following exerrpt from the oldest extant minute book of the church,
from a book entitled "Sketch of the History of Harmony Church"and
written, as R. C. describes it, in a beautiful script:

"In the summer or fall of the year anno domini 1800, Murdoch
McMillan, then a licentiate of Orange Presbytery preached a sermon at
the house of Daniel Gill, about five miles from the site of the since
Harmony church, to a crowded audience.It being, in a manner, a
destitute place, and the the people being pleased with him, to
encourage his service among the, they soon after built for him and
themselves a temporary log meeting house at John McLean's"

"Alexander Nicholson and Angus Curry were ordained Elders in the fall
of the year AD 1833 by the Rev'd John Warnock. Mr. Curry moved to
Barbour County, Ala. in December AD 1834 where he now lives". R. C.'s
Note: The "Sketch" was written in 1838 by a minister serving the
church at that point in time. A "destitute place" as mentioned above
means that there was not preaching of the Word of God in that
vicinity.)

William de BRAOSE and Matilda / Maud de St.VALERY

Husband: William de Braose

LifeNotes: Was Lord of Bergavenny and Brecknock by inheritance from
his mother. Was 4th Lord of Bramber, inherited Bramber, Builth and
Radnor from his father. Was the strongest of the Marcher Lords
involved in constant war with the Welsh and other lords. He was
particularly hated by the Welsh for the massacre of three Welsh
princes, their families and their men which took place during a feast
at his castle of Abergavenny in 1175. He was sometimes known as the
"Ogre of Abergavenny". One of the foremost Norman warriors, he was
with King Richard at Chalus in 1199 (when Richard received his fatal
wound).

William de Braose received Limerick in 1201 from King John. He was
also given custody of Glamorgan, Monmouth and Gwynllwg in return for
large payments. William captured the King's nephew Arthur, Count of
Brittany at Mirebeau in 1202 and was in charge of his imprisonment for
King John. Among his many favors, he was granted Gower in 2/1203. He
may have known of the murder of Arthur. He was awarded Limerick by
John in July. He was restored to the office of Sheriff of
Herefordshire by John for 1206-7. He had held this office under
Richard from 1192 to 1199

But in about 1209, when the kingdom labored under the Pope's
interdiction, and John deemed it expedient to demand hostages from his
barons to ensure their allegiance, should the Pope proceed to the
length of absolving them from obedience to the crown, his officers who
came upon the mission to the Baron de Braose, were sent by Maud, his
wife, and peremptorily informed that she would not intrust any of her
children to the king, who had so basely murdered his own nephew,
Prince Arthur. William rebuked her, however, for speaking thus, and
said that if he had in any way offended the king, he was ready to make
satisfaction, according to the judgment of the court, and the barons,
his peers, upon an appointed day, and at any fixed place, without
however giving hostages. This answer being communicated to the king,
an order was immediately transmitted to seize upon the baron's person,
but de Braose heard of this and fled with his family to Ireland.

Reginald de BRAOSE and Groecia BRUERE / de BRIWERE

Husband: Reginald de Braose

LifeNotes: Was Lord of Abergaveny. Had his grant confirmed by King
Henry III., and he had livery of the castle and honor of Totness, with
the honor of Barnstaple, having had previous possession of other
estates.

Reginald de Braose supported his brother Giles de Braose against King
John. They were both active against the King in the Barons' War.
Neither was present at the signing of Magna Carta because they were
still rebels who refused to compromise. King John aquiesced to
Reginald's claims to the de Braose estates in Wales in May 1216. He
became Lord of Brecon, Abergavenny, Builth and other Marcher Lordships
but was very much a vassal of Llewelyn Fawr, Prince of Gwynedd and now
his father-in-law.

He was restored to favor by Henry III and got back the Bramber
estates which had been taken from William de Braose by King John in
1217. Seeing this action as betrayal, Reginald's nephews, Rhys and
Owain, princes of Deheubarth, were incensed and took Builth (except
the castle). Llewelyn Fawr also became angry and beseiged Brecon.
Reginald eventually surrendered to Llewelyn and gave up Seinenydd
(Swansea). By 1221 they were at war again with Llewelyn laying seige
to Builth. The seige was relieved by Henry III's forces. From this
time on Llewelyn tended to support the claims of Reginald's nephew
John de Braose concerning the de Braose lands.

Reginald de Braose was a witness to the re-issue of Magna Carta by
Henry III in 1225.

William de BRAOSE, 6th Baron of Aberg and Lady Eva MARSHALL

Husband: William de Braose, 6th Baron of Aberg

LifeNotes: Was of Abergavenny. He was suspected of a dalliance with
the wife of Llewellyn, Prince of Wales, who invited William to his
castle for an Easter feast, then threw William in prison after the
banquet. William de Braose was thereafter hanged as was Prince
Llewellyn's unfaithful wife, Joan.

The Annals of Margam (in T. Gale, ed, Historiae Britannicae et
Anglicanae Scriptores XX (Oxford, 1687), 2-18, [anno] MCCXXX) implies
that the "intimacy" was devised by Llywelyn to avenge himself on
William for political injuries inflicted not only by William but by
the entire Braose family; the execution was hailed by the Welsh as a
vindication of a blood-feud against the Braoses dating from at least
1176. Indeed, shortly after the execution Llywelyn wrote to William de
Braose's widow Eva and to her brother William Marshal, Earl of
Pembroke, stating, in effect, that as far as he was concerned, the
intended marriage between Llywelyn's son Dafydd and Eva Marshall's
daughter Isabella could go forward as planned, and that he could not
have prevented the Welsh magnates from taking their vengeance. See J.
Goronwy Edwards, Calendar of Ancient Correspondence concerning Wales
(Board of Celtic Studies of the University of Wales, History and Law
Series, 2) (Cardiff, 935), pp 51-52, nos. XI.56a, 56b. The marriage in
fact took place three months later.

Wife: Maud de Broase

Born: 1230

Married: 1247

Died: 1300-1

Parents: William de Broase of Brecknock,3rd Earl of Pembroke, and
Lady Eva Marshall

LifeNotes: She was co-heiress of her father William de Braose, of

Husband: Roger Mortimer, Lord Mortimer, of Wigmore

Born:

Married: 1247

Died: by 10/10/1282

Parents: Ralph de Mortimer and Gladys Dhu

LifeNotes: Roger was a great-grandson of King John. In the 31st year
of King Henry III, paid 2,000 marks to the king, had livery of all his
lands, excepting those whereof Gladys Dhu, his mother, then surviving,
was endowed.

During the following 6 years, Roger de Mortimer attended the King
Henry III to Gascony, and later, when Llewellyn, Prince of Wales,
began again to make incursion upon the marches, was commanded to
assist Humphrey de Bohun, Earl of Hereford, in the defense of the
country lying between Montgomery, and the lands of the Earl of
Gloucester. In the 42nd year of the same reign he had another military
summons to march with the King Henry III against the Welsh; and being
in that service, had a special discharge of his scutage for those
twenty-six knights' fees and a sixth part which he held in right of
Maud, his wife, one of the daughters and co-heirs of William de
Braose, of Brecknock.

In two years afterwards Roger Mortimer was made captain-general of
all the king's forces in Wales, all the barons marchers receiving
command to be attendant on him with their whole strength; and he was
the same year constituted the Governor of the castle of Hereford. But
notwithstanding this extensive power, and those great resources, he
was eventually worsted by Llewellyn, and constrained to sue for
permission to depart, which the Welsh price conceded, owing to his
consanguity. After this he took and active part in the contest between
Henry III. and the insurrectionary barons in favor of the former. He
was at the battle of Lewes, whence he fled into Wales, and afterwards
successfully planned the escape of Prince Edward. Having accomplished
his prince's freedom, Mortimer, directing all his energies to the
embodying a sufficient force to meet the enemy, soon placed Prince
Edward in a situation to fight and win the great battle of Evesham
(August 4, 1265), by which the king was restored to his freedom and
his crown. In the celebrated conflict Mortimer commanded the third
division of the royal army, and for his faithful services obtained, in
the October following, a grant of the whole earldom and honor of
Oxford, and all other the lands of Robert de Vere, Earl of Oxford, at
that time and by that treason forfeited. The Dictum of Kenilworth
followed soon after the victory of Evesham, by which the defeated
barons were suffered to regain their lands upon the payment of a
stipulated fine, but this arrangement is said to have caused great
irritation among the barons marchers, (Mortimer with the rest), who
had acquired grants of these estates.

Roger Mortimer was, however, subsequently entrusted, by the crown,
with the castle of Hereford, which he had orders to fortify, and he
was appointed Sheriff of Herefordshire. After the accession of Edward
I, he continued to enjoy royal favor, and had other valuable grants
from the crown.

Upon received a knighthood from King Edward I, Roger Mortimer held a
tournament, at his own expense, at Kenilworth, where he entertained a
hundred knights and as many ladies, for three days, in a grand manner,
the like of which was never before known in England; and there began
the round table, so called from the place wherein they practiced those
feats, which was encompassed by a strong wall, in a circular form.
Upon the 4th day the golden lion, in token of triumph, having been
yielded to him, he carried it to Warwick. His fame spread afar and it
happened that the Queen of Navarre sent him certain wooden bottles,
bound with golden bars and wax, under the pretense of wine, but in
truth filled with gold, which for many ages after were preserved in
the Abbey of Wigmore. Whereupon for the love of that queen, he had
added a carbuncle to his arms.

Their children were:

* Ralph de Mortimer

* Roger de Mortimer. Succeeded his father at age 16. 5th Lord of
Wigmore, Lord of Chirke, part of the territories of Griffith ap
Madoc.Married-1st: Joan Geneville, daughter of Peter de Geneville and

Lord of Meath.

* William de Mortimer. Was of Bridgewater. Married Hawise Musegros,
heir of Robert de Muscegros and Agnes Ferrers.

* Isabella Mortimer. Married John FitzAlan, Earl of Arundel, son of
John FitzAlana and Maud de Verdon. Their son: Sir Richard FitzAlan,
Earl of Arundel.

* Sir Edmund de Mortimer, 7th Baron of Wigmore, born about 1261.
Succeeded his father in the 10th year of King Edward I. Married
Margaret Fiennes, daughter of William de Fiennes and Blanche Brienne
(Blanche was the great-granddaughter of Jean de Braose, King of
Jeruselem).Their children: Roger de Mortimer (succeeded his father),
John Mortimer (slain at age 18 in a tournament, 12th year of King
Edward II, by John de Leyborne), Hugh Mortimer (was a priest, rector
of the church at old Radnor), Maud Mortimer (m. Theobald de Verdon),
Joan Mortimer (was a nun), Elizabeth Mortimer (was a nun). The year
after his succession, while doing his homage, Sir Edmund had livery of
his lands. He afterwards constantly employed in the Welsh wars, and
was summoned to Parliament as a baron, from 6/8/1294, and from
6/23/1295, to 6/2/1302. He was mortally wounded at the Battle of
Buelt, against the Welsh, and dying almost immediately, at Wigmore

William de BRIWERE and Beatrice de VAUX

Husband: Sir William de Briwere, Lord of Derby, Lord Horsley

LifeNotes: William Briwere, son of Henry Briwere, "... in
consideration of xxxi Marks in Silver purchasing from Hawise de
Ilesham, Raphe her Husband, Roger her Son and Heir, and Auger his
Brother, the Inheritance of all their Land at Ilesham, and that Right
therein, which they held of him, by the Service of half a Knights Fee
... In which year, being constituted Sheriff of Devon, he continued so
till the end of that King's Reign.

After the death of King Henry II, Sir William stood in such high
esteem, with Richard I, "That, upon the going of that King into the
Holy Land, in the first year of his Reign, he and Hugh Bardulf were
associated to the Bishops of Durham and Ely, in the Government of the
Realm."

Furthermore, in 3rd year, Richard I, the King being then in the Holy
Land, and doubting that the Bishop of Ely might not perform his Trust,
as he expected; this William was one of the three, to whom the King,
by his special Letters, gave command, That they should assume the
government into their Hands. Thus much for the Trusts and Favours
which he received from King Richard I. Nor were they less from King
John, after he assumed the Crown "In which year (viz. 17 Joh.) the
King having raised two great Armies, the one to restrain the Irruption
of those Rebellious Lords who staid in London; the other to march into
the North, for the wasting of those Countries; he constituted this
William one of the Principal Commanders of that which staid near
London."

In 7th year Henry III, William de Briwere was constituted Governor of
Newcastle upon Tine. And, as in the time of King Henry II, and King
Richard I, he had "for divers years undergone the Care and Trust of
the Sheriffalty in several Counties of this Realm." So did he, in like
sort, for many years of King John's and King Henry III's reign. And,
having married Beatrix de Valle, a Concubine, as 'tis said, to
Reginald Earl of Cornwall (which is probable, for in a Grant made by
Henry Son to the same Reginald, unto this William, of the Mannor of
Karswell, and Land of Hakford, he calls him his Brother) he had Issue
by her two sons, viz. Richard, who died in Life-time, as it seems and
William: as also five Daughters, viz. Grecia, married to Reginald de
Braose; Margaret to William de Ferte; Isabel, first to ----- Dovre,
and afterwards to Baldwin Wake; Alice to Reginald de Mohun; and Joane,
to William de Percy: and departing this Life in 11 H. 3. was buried
before the High-Altar in the Abby of Dunkeswell before-mentioned."---

Daniel DOUGLASS and Effie McLEAN

Husband: Daniel Douglass

LifeNotes: May have been named Donald at birth and later chose to use
the English version Daniel. He and Effie immigrated to America from
Isle of Skye, Scotland, before the Revolutionary War. He was in
Richmond Co, NC by 1778. On 7/30/1779, he applied to State of North
Carolina for a grant in (then) Montgomery Co, NC (formerly Anson Co)
-- 50 acres including improvements. This was land on which Daniel was
already living, located "beginning at a black jack in Caleb
Tombstone's line and running hence south forty-five degrees east
forty-five poles to a stake in Allen McSwain's line, etc." Shown on a
tax list, paying taxes on the land for 1780-82. It is speculated that
the land was adjacent to the property of the legendary Scottish
heroine Flora McDonald and her husband Captain Allan McDonald; they
bought their land-425 acres- from Caleb Tombstone in late 1775 (this
land was confiscated from the McDonalds in 1777, due to their being
Loyalists and the couple left the area). Daniel Douglass is not shown
as loyal to any side during the War. Since he received the grant, that
would indicate he was not an active Tory.

Note: Many Scots immigrated into North Carolina and other areas in
the 1700s. Bee Lane tells us that all immigration ceased from late
1775 until the peace treaty was signed in 1783.

Daniel Douglass moved to Richmond Co, NC in 1784 (Richmond Co. was
formed from Anson Co, 11/10/1779). Daniel bought Richmond Co. property
in 1785 (100 acres), 1792 (50 acres), 1795 (30 acres), 1799 (25
acres), 1806 (50 acres, a 25-acre swap, 355 acres). Most of this land
now lies in Scotland Co, NC which was part of Richmond until 1889.
Daniel Douglass was considered a very successful planter.

Angus DOUGLASS and Sarah CURRY
My gggggrandparents

Husband: Angus Douglass

LifeNotes: Arrived in America -- in Richmond Co, NC after late 1785,
before 10/1787. He settled some 10-15 miles from his father's home,
closer to Rockingham, the county seat.

From Bee Lane: In the Court of Law and Equity of Richmond Co, NC on
29 Sept 1813 he became a naturalized citizen of the USA., along with
38 other aliens who had arrived before Jan 1795. Great Britain
prohibited emigration from there to the American colonies during the
Revolutionary War (1776-1783). Only those who came after the war were
considered aliens, thus being required by the States to register,
swear allegience to the USA and seek citizenship. The War of 1812 with
Britain stirred up the enforcement of this law.

Bought 75 acres north of Mark's Creek from Norman McLeod in 1793. In
2/1815, bought 150 acres at Sheriff's sale for $300, property of
Daniel Munroe, on Mark's Creek near Hall's (Hale's?) Bridge joining
land of Daniel Lackley (this land was sold by his son Duncan C.
Douglass on 8/14/1819 to Peter M. Cole). In 10/1817, bought 200 acres,
land joining McCaskill and McIntosh. The chaincarriers for the survey
were Angus Douglass and his son Alexander Douglass.

Born: 1759 in probably the Highlands of Scotland, according to
grandson, John Love MacKinnon, Jr., author of "The History of Walton
Co." [FL]

Married: ca 1793

Died: 6/30/1819 in Richmond Co, NC. Died intestate-without a will.
See the estate records. Angus was buried Old Sneads Grove Cemetery,
Laurel Hill, NC, which is an abandoned cemetery near present-day
Laurenburg in that part of Richmond Co, NC which is now Scotland Co,
NC.

Parents: Daniel Douglass and Effie McLean

Wife: Sarah Curry

LifeNotes: it is said she was quite young when she married Angus
Douglass. She was named in her father's will (dated 11/15/1807;
probated 6/1813, Richmond Co, NC) in which she received a cow, as did
her sisters Mary Curry Nicholson and Abigail Curry McDuffie. Their
brother William Curry and their mother received the bulk of the Curry
estate which included 200 acres on each side of Mark's Bridge. See her
Curry page.

Born:

Married: ca 1793

Died: 1/30/1833 Walton Co, FL

Parents: Angus and Christian (-?) Curry. Angus's will dated
11/15/1807, probated 6/1813, Richmond Co, NC.

Their children were:

* Alexander Douglass, born ca 1794-5 in Richmond Co, NC. On 1/3/1822,
bought land next to Murdock MacKinnon, Sarah Douglass and Daniel
McSwain. Migrated with his mother Sarah Curry Douglass and brother
Daniel B. Douglass (and possibly sister Mary Douglass) to FL about
1826; stayed on the Chipola River in Gadsden Co, FL for 2 years and
farmed. He was appointed and served in the 1825 FL Legislative Council
of the Territory representing Gadsden Co, FL. He later tried to join
others in Walton Co, FL; he was held back by a rise of the waters. He
surveyed the river and the land and made the first crossing at the
spot referred to as Douglass Ferry, which was named for him. The
crossing became a popular spot for travelers. At age 55, married Mary
(Oates?), listed in the 1850 census for Walton Co, FL as age 23, born
AL and in the 1860 census as age 35, born AL. Alexander is listed in
the Walton Co, FL 1850 census as age 42 and 1860 census as age 65,
born in NC. Their daughter Mary E. Douglass, born ca 1857-8. (listed
in 1860 census as age 3). On 11/29/1864, Alexander Douglass died of
exhaustion while moving his cattle in the waters of the Lincoln
Freshet. He is buried with other relatives in the Euchee Anna
Cemetery.

* Duncan C. Douglass, born ca 1796 Richmond Co, NC. As Bee Lane puts
it, Duncan seemed to have a penchant for getting into trouble. His
record is spread all over Richmond Co, court records. On 6/15/1815, in
the Court of Pleas and Quarterly Sessions of Richmond Co, NC, Duncan
was ordered to pay Catherine McLeod the sum of $20 with Angus Douglass
as security for payment for maintenance of a child born of Cartherine;
this sum was to be paid in quarterly amounts for a year. Caty was
granted the right to keep the child for another year with payments of

Catharine DOUGLASS and John Love MacKINNON

Wife: Catharine Douglass

LifeNotes: She migrated from the green North Carolina mountains with
her husband, babies, and many other Gaelic-speaking families to the
exotic beauty of the Florida Territory. Catharine and John settled on
Bruce Creek, west of the Indian Fields. They called their home
Pleasant Hill. They were friendly with the Euchee Indians who lived in
the Valley. Later the Euchees left the Valley, and relations with
other Natives deteriorated.

At the close of the Creek War of 1813-14 in Alabama, fought so
fiercely by men such as Andrew Jackson, David Crockett, and Sam Dale
against Creeks such as Menawa, Osceola, Peter McQueen, and William
(Red Eagle) Weatherford, many Creeks moved west. Some, however, went
south to live with the Seminoles in Florida; one of these was Osceola.
The Seminoles hated the whites. Also living with the Seminoles were
Blacks who were runaway slaves. Florida was under Spanish rule at this
time. In 1817, General Jackson went into Florida and burned every
Seminole village he found. He burned his way to the Spanish fort in
Pensacola; then he took the fort. With this threat in hand, President
John Quincy Adams then demanded that the Spanish government restore
order. In 1818, Spain ceded the Florida Territory to the United
States.

The Seminoles were forced to live on an island reservation conditions
were terrible; many died; many, however, got stronger in their hatred.
Osceola led them. In 1832, in the Treaty of Payne's Landing, the
whites arranged for them all to be moved west. Enraged ever more, the
Seminoles began to raid the settlers with a new vengeance. Many died
on both sides. Fear was rampant.

The situation became so serious that in 1836-7, the Seminole War
resulted. While John took command of the troops in his area, Catharine
kept a refuge for her neighbors. When her husband brought home two
small Native boys that he had found during a battle, Catharine took
them in. She cared for them for several months until the boys could be
returned to their own people. For more about the Seminole War, see
John Love McKinnon's page.

Crispin and Macary report: " Henry de Ferrieres is referred to by
Wace thus; 'Henri li sire de Ferrieres,' and he who then held
Tillieres. He was seigneur de Saint Hilaire de Ferriers near Bernay
and the son, of Walkelin de Ferrers, who fell in a contest with Hugh
de Montfort I early in the reign of Duke William, in which both of
these noblemen were killed. He had an older brother William, also
reported at Hastings, undoubtedly well advanced in years at that time,
who died before the compilation of Domesday, where his name does not
appear. Henry de Ferrers received 210 manors, 114 of which were in
Derbyshire.

The seat of his chief barony was Tutbury Castle in Staffordshire,

LifeNotes: He was 6th Earl of Derby. Took arms on behalf of Richard I
upon the King's return from captivity. Joined the Earl of Chester in
the successful seige of Nottingham Castle. Was given a seat on the
great coucil at Nottingham as reward. Furthermore, he was honored as
one of the 4 persons to carry the canopy over the King Richard's head
at the second coronation.

When King John came to the throne, William joined the Earl of
Chester, the Earl of Clare and others in swearing fealty to the new
king, on the condition that every person should have his right.
William attended the coronation of King John. He was created Earl of
Derby soon after. He was "girt with a sword by the king's own hands
(being the first of whom in any charter that expression was used)."
Was granted 1 penny out of three of the fees paid the sheriff. Was
given for the sum of 4000 marks, the manor at Higham-Ferrers,
Northampton Co, with the hundred and park, plus the manors of
Bliseworth and Newbottle, in the same shire; which were part of the
lands of his great grandfather, William Peverel, of Nottingham.
Additionally King John also conferred upon him a mansion-house,
situated in the parish of St. Margaret, within the city of London,
which had belonged to Isaac, a Jew, at Norwich, "to hold by the
service of waiting upon the king (the earl and his heirs), at all
festivals yearly, without any cap, but with a garland of the breadth
of his little finger upon his head." Thus William de Ferrers
maintained allegiance to the King foaaasr his life and after that King
died, the loyalty went to the next King Henry II.

William assisted at the coronation of Henry II and immediately after
Easter, took part with the famous William Marshall (governor of the
king and the kingdom), the Earls of Chester and Albemarle, and others

Gerard FOWKE and Ann THOROWGOOD Thanks to Mike McGuire

Husband: Gerard Fowke

LifeNotes: Gerard was Gentleman of the Bedchamber for Charles I.
Colonel of Horse. Fled to Northern Neck of Virginia in 1651, soon
after the Battle of Worcestor, transported to VA before 1654 by his
brother Thomas Fowke.

He may have had a first wife Hope ?, according to Margaret Bean
Langley (this from Linda Reno)

Acquired a great deal of land in Westmoreland Co, VA. Was Colonel of
Troops there.

"The Englishmen on the banks of the Potomac mingled elegant pleasures
with rude labors and perilous enterprises. There is a record of a
contract in 1670 between John Lee, son of Col. Richard Lee, then
deceased, Henry Corbin, Isaac Allerton, and Dr. Thomas Gerrard, for
building a banqueting house at or near their respective lands. The
English colonist acted as far as the circumstances would permit,
precisely as he would in London. It was a rare thing if the richer
settlers did not visit the mother country once during the year ...
Among those who resided in the "suburban" area (Westmoreland Co. VA)
above Machodic, at Nomini Creek, were: Walter Brodhurst, Edmund Brent,
Nicholas Spencer, Valentine Peyton, Maj. John Hallowes (Hollis), Above
Nomini resided at Appomattox Creek (now Mattox) Col. John Washington,
his father-in-law, Col. Nathaniel Pope, William Butler, the minister,
and Andrew Monroe, who lived in Maryland, in 1643.

Still further up the river, beyond Nomini, were Samuel Hayward, Col.
Giles Brent, and his famous sister, Margaret Brent, at "Peace" on
Acquia Creek. Other settlers were Capt. John Ashton, Capt. John Lord,
brother of Rich'd Lord, of Hartford, New England; Capt. William
Hardwich, a tailor from Maryland, brother-in-law of Mrs. Washington;
Thomas Sturman, of Maryland Daniel Hutt, formerly of London; John
Rosier, minister, Anthony Bridges, Capt. George Mason (born in 1629),
John Hillier, Capt. Thomas Ewell, Col. Gerrard Fowke, Col. Thomas
Speke, Capt. William Pierce, Capt. John Appleton, Col. Tomas Blagg,
Capt. Alexander Bainham, Col. John Dodman, Lewis Markham, Clement
Spelman, William Browne, of Plymouth, Daniel Lisson, Robert Vaulx, and
Capt. Thomas and William Baldridge." ( Genealogies of VA Families"
from Wm. & Mary Quarterly, Vol. V, p.903-907.) (this information
posted to MDCHARLE by Pat Obrist)

From Elizabeth Wellborn Scheiffelin, "In Search of a Magna Charta
Signer": Was brought before the Assembly, Gerard Fowke, along with
Captain Giles Brent, John Lord, and Captain George Mason, was charged
with having affronted Wahonganocke, King of the Potomac Indians. The
Burgesses ordered that the men pay Wahonganocke 100 arms length of
Roanoke (wampum) apiece, or "match coats instaed, at 20 arms length
every coat." For permitting a "murtherer" delivered into his custody
by Wahonganocke to escape, Fowke was ordered "to pay to the publique
tenne thousand lb. of tobacco." Furthermore, Fowke and Brent were also
fined 15000 lb. tobacco for imprisoning said Wahonganocke, and "that
they bee incapable of bearing any office, civil or military, in this
countrey", plus they had to give bond for themselves and pay charges.
Interesting to note that despite the harsh judgement of the Burgesses
against Gerard, he was elected to the Burgesses for Westmoreland Co,
VA 2 years later. A year later, he was in Charles Co, MD in the 1660s.
Was in House of Burgesses for Charles Co, MD.

Kathryne GRAVES and her husbands William Roper and Thomas SPRIGG

Vance Graves.

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Thomas GRAVES and Katherine CROZIER or CROSHAW

Husband: Thomas Graves

LifeNotes: Kenneth Vance Graves states: "Thomas Graves, gentleman,
arrived in Virginia in October of 1608, coming from England in the
ship 'Mary & Margaret' with Captain Christopher Newport's second
supply."

Graves tell us that Thomas Graves was one of the original Adventurers
(stockholders) of the Virginia Company of London and one of the very
early planters who founded Jamestown, Virginia, the first permanent
English settlement in North America. Thomas is listed as "Thomas
Grave" on page 364, Records of the Virginia Company of London, vol.
IV.

From Graves: "The First Colony (consisting of knights, gentlemen,
merchants and others of the city of London) made a settlement at
Jamestown on May 13, 1607, which became permanent." Thomas was active
in the colony. He went on an exploring expedition and was captured by
Indians and taken to Opechancanough [half-brother of Powhatan and
uncle of Pocahontas]. Thomas Savage, who had come to Virginia with the
first supply on the "John and Francis" in 1608, rescued him.

It is thought perhaps that Thomas Graves regularly and frequently
traveled to England, Ireland, Holland, and New England because he is
regularly recorded in Virginia then there are lapses. It appears that
Katherine and the three oldest children were in Dublin, Ireland, then
came to America later. See the note re: John Graves below.

"In 1617 the Virginia Company, hoping to expand population and
agricultural production in the colony, encouraged private or voluntary
associations organized on a joint stock basis to establish settlements
in the area of the Virginia Company's patent. The Society of Smith's
(or Smythe's) Hundred (later called Southampton Hundred) was organized
in 1617. In addition to Captain Thomas Graves, the Adventurers also
included Sir Thomas Smith, Sir Edwin Sandys, and the Earl of
Southampton.

Soon after April 29, 1619, Governor Yeardley wrote to Sir Edwin
Sandys: "I have entreated Capt. Graves, an antient officer of this
company, to take charge of the people and workes". Captain Thomas
Graves was a member of the First Legislative Assembly in America, and,
with Walter Shelley, sat for Smythe's Hundred when it met at Jamestown
on July 30, 1619 and was a representative from Smythe's Hundred to the
first meeting of the House of Burgesses.

The Records of the Virginia Company state that in 1622 was granted "a
patent to Thomas Graves of Doublin in the Realm of Ireland, gent.."

He is shown on "A List of Names of the Living in Virginia Feb. 1623"
as living on the Eastern Shore. His patent was for 200 acres in then
Accomack Co, VA, now Northampton Co, VA (Patent Book No. 1, p. 72,
Land Registrar's 0ffice, Richmond, VA.). The land was on the east side
of Chesapeke Bay, west of the land of Captain Henry Flute. By 1625,
there were 51 people living on the Eastern Shore. Thomas was given the
task of determining direction of local affairs. He was one of several
appointed a Commissioner "for the Plantacon of Acchawmacke".

He was in the House of Burgesses, representing Accomack, for the
1629-30 season and for the 1632 session. He attended many of the
meetings of the Commissioners, but he was absent from Dec 30, 1632/3
until Oct. 23, 1633/4, probably abroad.

Born: ca 1575-80

Married: probably about 1610, in maybe England

Died: 1635-6, Accomack Co, VA

Parents:

Wife: Katherine (maybe Croshaw?)

LifeNotes: There was a Raleigh Chroshaw, Gent., who arrived with the
second supply with Thomas Graves; some think Raleigh was Thomas'
brother-in-law. Katherine is shown living at the Old Plantation,
Accomack, as of 5/20/1636.

Born: ca 1586

Married: probably about 1610, in maybe England

Died: 5/20/1636, Accomack Co, VA

Parents:

Their children were:

* John Graves, born ca 1611, probably in England as he did not
receive land as an "Ancient Planter" (All persons in Virginia prior to
1616 received an additional 50 acres; this is the proof that Thomas
Graves did not bring his wife and children when he first came to
Virginia). Married in ca 1624 or later, (-?) maybe Perrin, the
daughter of "... the illustrious Perrin family, large property owners,
and prominent in Virginia history, " according to family historian
John Card Graves. Their children were: Ralph Graves (b. by 1629; m.
Rachel Croshaw ca 1652-4; d. 5/9/1667), William Graves (b. by 1631; m.
to ?; d. before 1668), Thomas Graves (b. by 1631; m. Elizabeth -?),
Sarah Graves (m. Thomas Dipnall, a Burgess from James City Co, VA in
1654; d. by 1661), Daughter Graves (m. William Grenther).

John Graves was "of~ age" (21 years of age or older) before
2/19/1634/5, for he had sued John Parramore (Accawmacke 1, p.26),
proving he was born at least by 1614, and on that date the Acchawmacke
Court's decision was "John Parramore ordered to pay a debt of 100 lb.
tobacco to John Graves".

John Graves received a patent 8/9/1637 of 600 acres in Elizabeth City
Co. near the upper end of Back River "due in right of descent from his
father Thomas Graves, who transported at his own cost himself,
Katherine Graves his wife, John Graves the patentee, and Thomas
Graves, Jr., and 8 persons." (Cavaliers and Pioneers, Nugent).
Interestingly, the land was near that of Captain Adam Thoroughgood
(see his page on this site). John Graves receievd patents in 1638 and
1639 too.

The holdings of John Graves were near the York County line and almost
directly opposite Hungar's Creek in Northampton Co. (formerly
Accawmacke) on the Eastern Shore, where his father had lived and where
his sisters were still living at that time.

John Graves died about 4/1640 intestate in Elizabeth City County.
William Parry was named his administrator and bond was made
(Northampton CO., Book 2. p. 281) . Capt Roper, William Cotton and
Capt. Stone, brothers-in-law and also administrators of the estate of
Capt.Thomas Graves, were originally appointed administrators of
Graves' estate, but in 4/1640 they resigned and William Parry was
appointed.

* Thomas Graves, born ca 1616-7, probably in England. Known as
"Thomas Graves, Sr. of Timberneck Creek, Gloucester Co, VA planter."
Married (-?). Their children: Thomas Graves (b. ca 1639; m-1st: Mary
-? before 1677; m-2nd: Elizabeth -?), Jeffrey Graves (m. Dorothy ?
before 1680), William Graves (m. Mary -? by 1686), maybe Mary Graves.
Thomas Graves died ca 1674-5, Gloucester Co, VA., leaving his
considerable land holdings to his sons Thomas, Jefferey and William.

On 6 Mar 1674-5 Thomas Graves and Jeffery Graves, sonnes of Tho
Graves, Senr., dec'd, were granted land in Gloucester Co, Abbington
Par. due them under the will of their father.

* Verlinda Graves, born ca 1618 in VA. Married in Hungar's Parish,
Accomack Co, VA before 1640 to Captain William Stone. See his will.
William and Verllinda were in MD where William Stone later became
Governor, appointed Governor of the Colony by Lord Baltimore. The
Stones relocated to first St. Mary's County and then to Charles
County, MD by 1648 when he was governor. Stone served as governor from
1648 to 1656 (with two interruptions) and was a member of the Council
from 1656 until his death in 1659-60. In 1654, he received Poynton
Manor, an estate of about 5000 acres, mostly in Charles County, MD,
from Lord Baltimore. Their children: Elizabeth Stone (m. William
Calvert, son of Leonard Calvert), Thomas Stone (b. ca 1635; d. 1676),
Richard Stone (d. 1667), Matthew Stone (d. 1676), John Stone (b. ca

Albertus HENDRICKS and Aeltje / Helchey (-?)

John or Johannes HENDRICKS and his wives Francis Bezer and Rebecca
(GROESBECK-?)

Henry HENDRICKS and Jane (-?)

Eleanor HENDRICKS and John ODELL

Many thanks to Herb Hendricks and based on his work and the work of
Mary Hunt Copeland, Wilma Kirkland, and Gene Hays.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Albertus HENDRICKS and (-?) Aeltje or Helchey (-?)

Husband: Albertus Hendricks

LifeNotes: He was a cooper. Appears on a ships list 5/29/1662 of
"Gulden Aurent", Captain Jacob Janz Huys. Thought to be an indentured
servant of Joost de la Grange.

Thanks to Bill Hendricks for the following: Col Meredith Hendricks
was the source. He believed Albertus came as one of the unnamed
servants of Joost de la Grange. Joost purchased Tinicum Island but his
widow lost it back to the seller for failure to make all payments. In
the settlement the judgement provided that Albert (who is the
husbandman) is to perform his condition formerly made with Mr Carr
(widow de la Grange's new husband) to Jufroe Popegay. (the original
seller of Tinicum Island.) If this is true, then Albertus immigrated
May 29,1662 aboard the Gulden Arent.

Albertus Hendrickson was the first recorded public official in
Pennsylvania history after the Duke of York formally organized the
government. He took office in 1676 as constable of Upland.

From researcher Gene Hays: "Records from New Jersey Colonial
Documents, Salem surveys #2, p 551, 28 March 1685, Memorandum of
Agreement. Wm. Fleetwood sells to Albert Hendricks, 400 acres of land.
Albert Hendricks' land is shown on a Delaware Co. map as being five
miles down the river from Tinicum Island abuting the river with eldest
son James' land just below it. It is on the lower part of Chester City
with the upper edge being where the Commodore Berry (Perry?) bridge
crosses the Delaware River. Albert said he took his patent to Wm. Penn
when Penn first arrived but it was never returned to him.

On 11 May 1702/3 Francis Lovelace, Esquire to Albert Hendricks, 500
acres, recited patent to Albert Hendricks for the same tract which was
found on resurvey to contain 570 acres, patent date 11 March 1702/4.

In 1697 Albert Hendricks gave to his son James Hendricks 100 acres
(son James was about 30 years old then), Thomas Bright, Albert's
son-in-law received or bought 64 acres; Caleb Pussey bought 60 acres
and 20 acres were transferred to John Bayles in 1692 for the use of
the mill. 10 June 1701 deeds of 50 acres to son John and 70 acres to
son Albert Jr. This left Albertus with about 206 acres which he
bequeathed to his son Tobias Hendricks dated 5 Jan 1714/15.

In 1686 Albert Hendricks was appointed by the court to supervise the
construction of a horse bridge to Chester. On pages 110 of History of
Delaware Co. Albert Hendricks was the first known constable of the
area. Also Albert Hendrix and son Jacobus or James appear on the tax
list. Albert Hendrickson was a juror in 1681/82.

W. Richard HIGHTOWER and Kate McKinnon TERVIN or TARVIN

Husband: W. Richard Hightower

LifeNotes: He was from a Monroe Co, AL (Burnt Corn) family and
married into a DeFuniak Springs (Walton Co, FL) family. He and his
wife Kate Tervin Hightower had several children; the family lived in
Freeport, FL Dick Hightower worked at Southern States Land & Timber
Company's mills, Millview, FL. His sister Queen Hightower lived in
DeFuniak Springs; she was married to John Mott Ackerman. Sadly, a
month after the birth of Kate, their baby, Kate Hightower was taken
ill with yellow fever, and she died. The younger children and the new
baby were sent to relatives in Talladega until their father make
better arrangements.

On July 3. 1892, Dick took his 11-year-old son Jamie and some other
children for a sailing excursion in Perdido Bay. Far from shore,
things went terribly wrong-- Jamie fell overboard. Dick went into the
water to save his dear boy. The children left in the boat did not know
how to handle the boat and it drifted away from Dick and Jamie.
According to reports, Dick made a valiant struggle to pull his child
to shore, but his strength gave out and both drowned. See the write-up
of the accident.

So were left orphaned three very small children, Clarence, Katherine
and baby Kate Hightower. Kate was taken in by the McLean family (Emma
Tervin McLean) and friends but Clarence and Katherine were put in
Talladega Orphanage where they were adopted by Miss Lucy Smith of
Columbiana, AL.

The happy ending here is that those children grew up to be wonderful
productive people; they were very close to each other all their lives.

Matthew HOWARD, Sr. and his wives Elizabeth (-?) and Ann (-?)

Husband: Matthew Howard, Sr.

LifeNotes: Came to Virginia by 1635 as he was involved in a court
suit with a Mr. Evans that year. Was in VA with the Thoroughgood
family by 2/8/1637-38 when he was in the Upper County of New Norfolk
on the western branch of the Elizabeth River. (This information comes
from a land patent granted to Robert Taylor, which describes the land
grant boundaries as on the West Branch of the Elizabeth River bounded
on the west with Matthew Howard running nearly into the woods and
Sly.) Mathew Howard was the executor of the will of Richard Hall in
1648.

From Norfolk Co, Minute Book, 163746, page 6: "Oct. 26, 1637, Court
Proceedings ... Lower Couty of Norfolk. "Whereas it doth appear that
John Boulter did buy of Matthew Heyward four bbls. of Indian Corn
being in the house of Robert Jones ... the aforesaid Boulter coming to
demand a while after, without any notice or token from under Heyward's
hand the said Jones denied to deliever, but being very earnest for it,
the said Jones delivered two barrels and a bushel of it. It is
therefore ordered that the said Robert Jones shall repay the aforesaid
corn by the 1st of January, or else executiuon to be awarded."

The will of Richard Hall: left "Anne Howard a cow calf and a barrow
shote, Elizabeth Howard two cows and their increases, to Mathew Howard
the younger a sow shote, to Cornelius Howard a sow and my hat, to John
Howard my wigg and new clothes, to Samuel Howard, my money and
tobacco, and to old Mathew one yearling Stear calf and my best paor of
breeches." This will was proved 11/15/1648 by Matthew Howard.

Governor Berkeley of Virginia demanded that colonists swear loyalty
to the Anglican church and attend services. Governor William Stone of
Maryland negotiated with the dissenters being banished from Virginia
to come to Maryland. Matthew Howard appears to have been one of these.
He went to MD with Edward Lloyd to get land (see below), returned to
VA and died before making the final move with his children to MD. The
MD lands were never confirmed to him. (Maryland and Virginia
Colonials: Genealogies of Some Colonial Families, Sharon
Doliante,1991, Clearfield Company)

Received a grant / patent for 300 acres of land on 7/3/1650 in Anne
Arundel Co, MD, a tract of 650 acres called "Howard" was surveyed
7/3/1650 for Matthew Howard on the south side of Severn River. In the
1707 rent rolls, the comment was made that it could not be found that
this land was ever patented, but "ye Survey Supposed to be altered by
Howard into others."

The children went to Maryland and chose land near Matthew's grant and
the land they chose was pateneted to them. Ann and Elizabeth were of
age by then and they led their younger siblings into MD.

Listed here are those known to have the Lanier / Bassano artisic
gifts. If there seems to be a giant gap in years, it may be that the

Nicholas LANIER and his wives (-?) and Lucreece

Visit Kentwell-The Century of the Tudors, where you may peek at life
in Tudor times.

Husband: Nicholas Lanier

LifeNotes: Nicholas Lanier of Rouen, France, played the flute and the
cornet. He was flutist to Henri II of France, listed on the "Chantres
et autres Jouers d'instruments" for years 1559-60 of the French king's
Chambers.

During the Protestant persecutions, he was a Huguenot to England with
safe passage arranged for him by his patroness, the widowed queen
Catherine de Medici. Nicholas Lanier arrived at the new court of
Elizabeth I in 1561. Nicholas settled in St. Olave Parish, Hart
Street, London.

The bright young queen Elizabeth I, thrilled at the New Age she
generated, drew artists, poets, scholars and musicians to England from
all over Europe. Naturally they wished to be near the brilliant star
Elizabeth. Here the Arts were glorified. Here was the epicenter of a
cultural explosion. This was the time of William Shakespeare and Ben
Johnson. Explorers such as Francis Drake were discovering new worlds;
Walter Raleigh was forming expeditions colonize them.

The Laniers were right in the midst of it. In court, marriages were
arranged by the Queen. Nicholas Lanier was paired with Lucreece
Bassano, daughter of Anthony Bassano, a Venetian musician of the Royal
Orchestra. Nicholas was made Master of Flutes. The couple prospered,
acquiring a great deal of property in East Greenwich, Blackheath, and
nearby. Their home was reportedly fitted up with a theatre.

Nicholas Lanier was apponted Musician of the Flutes in 1604. He
served Henry II of France and Elizabeth I and James I of England.
Three generations of this remarkable family served British royalty as
court musicians, poets and artists; their efforts are well-documented-
and their efforts were well-rewarded.

For a really neat Tudor and Stuart primer, visit the wonderful
Welford and Wickham Primary School site in Berkshire, England and see

go, for the students have a very impressive site and you may want to
stay and explore.

2nd-Wife: Lucreece Bassano. See her Bassano page.

LifeNotes: she was the daughter of the Bassano family -- Jewish
musicians who came to England to serve Henry VIII. They probably
originated from the city of Bassano del Grappa near Venice. At that
time, the fabulous Renaissance courts of the Medici were winding down
and the artists and musicians of those courts were seeking work
elsewhere. It is thought the Bassano family was in Spain before Italy
and were driven out during the Sanish Inquisition.

So one can imagine that our Lucreece Bassano was of a very cultured
background. Assuredly, she was as instrumental as her husband,
Nicholas Lanier, in passing her own enlightenment on to her children.

Born: 9/24/1556

Married: 2/13/1570-1 in All Hallows Barking Parish, London, England

Died: about 1/4/1633-34; buried in East Greenwich, England

Parents: Anthony Bassano and Elena de Nazzi. See their Bassano page.

Their children were:

* Alphonse Lanier, born about 1572 .(Barbara Harrison figured the
date for Alphonso is based upon the 1606 Returns of Aliens Dwelling in
London, which lists Innocent as living in London xxxiij (33) years).
Appointed in 1591 musician to court of Elizabeth I. Instrumentalist
for Elizabeth I (he played at her funeral, too) and James I, also
Captain in Irish Service. Married 10/18/1592 in England to the
feminist poet Emelia Bassano, illiegitimate daughter of Italian
musician Baptisa Bassano and Margaret Johnson. Emelia was baptized
1/27/1569, St. Botolph, Bishopsgate-the area of London where many
artists and musicians lived. After the death of her father in 6/1576,
Emelia was brought up with the Countess of Kent. There was a son Henry
Lanier (a flutist) and a daughter Odilla Lanier who died as an infant.
Alphonse died in 9/20/1613. Emelia died in 1645. For fun, see a bit of
Elizabethan gossip about Emelia and a family friend named William
Shakespeare. Alphonse Lanier died 9/20/1613.

* Innocent Lanier, born about 1573 Barbara Harrison figured the date
for Innocent is based upon the 1606 Returns of Aliens Dwelling in

Gentleman of the King' s Chamber. Never married. Died 1625.

Clement LANIER and Hannah COLLETT
To be a success in the Baroque period, one had to mind one's manners,
visit Manners and Movements in Restoration England and see how that
was done.

Husband: Clement Lanier

LifeNotes: Clement Lanier was Gentleman of the King' s Chamber to
James I and Charles I-- that form of title was often afforded
musicians and actors --of the day. He carried the Lanier gift of
music, playing the recorder.

Clement Lanier and Hannah Collett married in March of 1628 at St.
Margaret's, Lee.

Clement' s cousin Nicholas Lanier (son of John and Frances) had
assembled a great art collection for their sovereign Charles I. After
the Civil War broke out in England, with Oliver Cromwell running the
country, the collection was dispersed at auction. Clement and his
brother Jerome were able to purchase some of the paintings. When
Charles I was executed, the Laniers suffered financial setbacks and
hardships while they supported the Prince of Wales (later Charles II)
and his struggles to gain right to the throne. After the Restoration,
the Laniers were able to regain some of their fortunes.

Clement and Hannah are the progenitors of both the American line of
Laniers and the Barbados line; they had 12 children-- all born in
England.

Born: 1592

Married: 3/1628 at St. Margaret's, Lee in Kent, England

Died: 1661, buried 11/6/1661, East Greenwich; will proved 12/3/1661,

Their children were:

* Hannah Lanier, baptized 13 Feb. 1629/30, Greenwich. Married a
haberdasher, Thomas Swetnam, in 1655. Hannah married late because she
raised her younger siblings after her mother died. Her father left her
his house in his will.

are considered the first Laniers to Virginia. See their page.

his page. Was left money in his father's will (along with his brother
John "when they shall come to demand the same of my Executrix"). He
married Rebecca (-?). They went to Barbados and are known as the
Barbados Line of Laniers. In 1678, a son was born, Clement Lanier
(baptized 8/21/1678 at St. Michael' s Parish in Barbados), Robert
Lanier, see his page, (m. Sarah Barker), Lemuel Lanier; all three
sons, as adults, went from Barbados to live in Virginia.

John LANIER and Lucreece (-?)

Husband: John Lanier

LifeNotes: The Lanier line came to Virginia in the mid- seventeenth
century. It is generally believed that most of the LANIERS in America
are descended from one couple, Clement Lanier and Hannah Collett, the
parents of John Lanier of Virginia and Robert Lanier (whose sons went
to Virginia) of Barbados. John Lanier and his wife Lucreece were
transported to VA by Howell Pryce in 1656 (Colonial Abstracts, Vol.
II, p33); they brought John (Jr.), their baby son. John and Lucreece,
though their circumstances were reduced in the (English) Civil War and
thereafter, were accustomed to a royal environment. Surely, they
anticipated a stylish English country experience in the New World--
hardly the primitive circumstances they encountered. They were
ill-prepared for carving a successful entreprise from the Virginia
frontier wilderness. The couple settled in Charles City Co, VA on the
south side fo the James River, probably to raise tobacco.

By the 1670s, times were tough for the planters on the frontier. They
no longer enjoyed happy relations with the Natives of the area. The
market was down for tobacco; Sir William Berkeley, Governor of the
British Colony, imposed heavy taxes on the colonists; he refused to
allow elections; and now Indian attacks! John Lanier and his son John,
Jr. participated in Bacon's Rebellion to protest the refusal of
Berkeley to provide protection from the Powhatan Confederacy. The
planters were not allowed to retaliate. In April of 1676, men of the
south side of the James River met at Jordan's Point (near present-day
Hopewell in Prince George County). John Lanier and John Woodlief were
chosen to meet with the Governor in Jamestown. They asked Berkeley for
permission to act against the Indian attacks. Berkeley called them
"fools and loggerheads"! It is ironic to note that the very superior
Berkeley took offense at having to deal with such shabby rabble as he
called the settlers. How far our Laniers had come! From royalty to
rabble!

But the situation was far more serious. The two representatives
returned to the James River camp and reported Berkeley's response. The
group was comprised of men who had come to the colony with royal
grants -- like John Lanier-- and former indentured servants.They were
joined by a wealthy planter Nathanial Bacon who lived on the opposite
side of the river. Bacon took command and led attacks against the
Pamunky tribe. And won! Bacon entered Jamestown as a hero; he was
condemned by the Governor. Subsequently there was another war of
sorts-- this time, the rebels against Berkeley-- the freeholders
against the elite of the colony. Eventually a force of 500 Bacon
followers, free men with servants and slaves added to their numbers,
laid seige on Jamestown and burned it. Many of the rebels were hanged
or imprisoned by Berkeley. British ships sent by Charles II arrived to
settle the rebellion; at that point all the surviving rebels
surrendered. It is not recorded how our John fared after the
rebellion. His son survived, we know. You can visit Bacon's Castle,
the mansion occupied by the Rebels; the house, built in 1655 by Arthur
Allen, still stands.

You can see Bacon's Castle if you go to the Jamestown Rediscovery
site. Be sure to bookmark this site before you go.

Major Lewis LANIER and his wives Ann Butler and Esther Butts Thorne

Not of my line but of possible interest to others.
Updated with many thanks to Beverly Sloan Shuler

Husband: Major Lewis Lanier

LifeNotes: Was educated for the law. At age 21, being an avid Whig,
he volunteered as Private in the Essex Co, VA Militia. Elected Captain
and later promoted to Major. Participated in the Battle of Long
Bridge. It is on record that he was wounded twice and taken prisoner
for nine months.

It is said he was in the boat with George Washington, his kinsman,
during the famous Crossing of the Delaware River. Major Lanier lost
his sword during the crossing and was later presented with a
replacement by General Washington.

After their marriage, Lewis and Ann first lived in VA, then they
moved to Anson Co, NC where he was a member of the North Carolina
House of Commons in 1788-9 and in the Senate 1789-90. In 1791, the
family moved to Savannah, GA then Screven Co, GA (the part that later
became Bulloch Co), where Lewis served in the Georgia Legislature in
1796 and in 1798 was a member of the Constitutional Convention.

During what is termed the "Yazoo fraud", (see the story) when the
Georgia legislators owned stock in the land company that tried to
defraud Georgia in 1796, Lewis Lanier was the only legislator who did
not own stock in the company. He fought against the deeds of his
collegues. The name of the town Lanier, GA, is named for him to honor
his actions.

After Anne died, Lewis married a widow Esther Butts Thorn; they moved
to Eureka. Lewis was a personal friend of the Marquis de LaFayette and
when the famous Frenchman toured the Southern states in 1825, Lewis
Lanier was invited to a reception in Savannah. However, Lewis was in
bad health, by that time, and was unable to attend.

Sidney Clopton LANIER and Mary Day

Not of my line but of interest to others.

Take a quick trip to Virtual Macon and see The Sidney Lanier Cottage,
Sidney's birthplace. Bookmark here so you can come right back.

Husband: Sidney Clopton Lanier

LifeNotes: He was the famous Southern poet. See The Marshes of Glynn,
considered his greatest work and Individuality. He inherited the
Lanier gifts of music and poetry. A member of the Signal Corps on
blockade runners, he served the Confederacy. He was a prisoner of war
held at Point Lookout and as a result, lost his health. He worked as a
hotel clerk in Montgomery, AL, then he became principal of and academy
in Prattville, AL. He met Mary Day, a native of Macon, GA, in AL.
Shortly after his marriage to her, he fell ill from a lung ailment,
perhaps, tuberculosis. He resigned from his Prattville post and he and
Mary moved to Macon where Sidney worked for 5 years in his father's
law office. After Macon, the couple lived in San Antonio, TX. Later
Sidney was a lecturer of English Literature at Johns Hopkins
University, Baltimore, MD; he gave many lectures from his chair. He
also played the flute in an orchestra there. In the churchyard of Old
Calvary Episcopal Church in Fletcher, NC, there is a commemoration to
Southern poets, for Sidney Lanier is written, "Thyself Thy Monument".

The Christian Science Monitor called him "an idealist, but no idle
dreamer. Soldier during the Civil War, natural scientist, lawyer,
musician and poet, his versatile, restless activity found its greatest
joy in calling people to noble action. Harsh as were his experiences
during the War, he bravely challenged the South to forget the past, to
let bygones-be-bygones. To Frances Willard he said: 'We are all
striving for one end, and that is to develop and ennoble the humanity
of which we form one part'.

In the makeup of Lanier, 'art-for-art's sake' had no place. His
'Symphony' is a passionate plea for liberty and justice, In 'Hymns of
the Marshes' the beauty and nobility of the commonplace are revealed
for all to see.

More than almost all other poets, Lanier realized the spiritual
source of all that was good and beautiful, and love for God and his
fellow-men runs as a golden thread through all his poems. A constant
expression on his lips was. 'I do thank God,' whenever he felt he had
reasonably succeeded in some form of expression. It is pleasant to
know that each succeeding year adds new listeners to the gentle and
dauntless Southern poet."

Born: 2/3/1842, Macon, GA

Married: 12/19/1867, Macon, GA

Died: 9/7/1881 in Lynn, NC

Parents: Robert Sampson Lanier and Mary Jane Anderson. Robert Sampson
Lanier, an attorney, born 9/22/1819 Clarke Co, GA married-1st: Mary
Jane 11/1840; married-2nd: Mrs. R. A. W. Pringle; died 10/29/1893.
Mary Jane born 12/4/1822; dide 5/22/1865. Robert Sampson Lanier's
parents were Sterling and Sarah Vivian Fulwood Lanier; Sterling, a
famous hotel man born 10/1/1794 Rockingham Co, NC; married 9/28/1818
in Clarke Co, GA died 1/31/1870; Sarah born 1803 in GA; died 1877 in
AL. Sidney Lanier's parents and grandparents are buried in Rose Hill
Cemetery in Macon, GA. His great-grandparents Sampson Lanier and
Elizabeth Massey and great-great grandparents James Henry and Mary
Cooke Lanier are discussed elsewhere on the site.

Wife: Mary Day

LifeNotes: Mary was a native of Macon, GA. She was inspiration for
him; she was the character in the exquisite poem, "My Springs", which
deals with the inspiration, the affection and the faith the poet gets
from looking into his wife's eyes. She was called the perfect wife for
a poet.

An excerpt from an article in the Baltimore Sun recalls a converstion
between several women, friends of Mary and Sidney, remembering the
wedding:

Mrs. Granville Connor, whose husband was Sidney Lanier's best man,
has the wedding invitations. She shows them gladly now--three separate
cards, one bearing the name-- Miss Mary Day the other the name, Sidney
Lanier; the third the words, "Christ Church, Macon, Georgia, Thursday,
December Nineteenth, at 4 o'clock". No year is given.

Mrs. Walter D. Lamar, president of the Sidney Lanier Memorial
Association, recalls that in the midst of the wedding the preacher had
Lanier repeat: "And with all my worldly goods I thee endow, " Viola
Ross, a prominent and witty miss whispered, "There goes the 'Tiger
Lilies". The whisper carried further than Miss Ross intended and a
distinct titter passed over the congregation at the mention of this
first book of Lanier's which ws nothing more than a pot boiler.

"The wedding was most exciting," Mrs. Blount confirms. "Everyone
thought that Mary was going to faint at the altar. And after that
wedding at the reception the dress of one of the bridesmaids caught
fire and there was much ado putting it out."

And do they talk--these old ladies-- recalling the funny, human
things that befell Sidney in those days of long ago. To them he is not
one of the most beloved and best-known of all Southern poets; nor one
of the few American poets accorded by English critics a distinct place
in literature. To them he is a slender, fair-haired youth with a look
of romance and poetry about him.

Married: 12/19/1867

Thomas Lanier "Tennessee" WILLIAMS

Not of my line but of interest to others.

LifeNotes: The home in which his family lived, in Columbus,
Mississippi, has been preesrved and is the Welcome Center in Columbus.

The address of the Tennessee Williams Birthplace: Mississippi Welcome
Center of Greater Golden Triangle, 300 Main Street, Columbus, MS
39701, phone 601-328-0222.

Pulitzer Prize-winning Tennessee Williams is considered by many to be
the greatest American playwright. His plays are so well known that
lines from them are part of the American vernacular. He created
unforgettable characters--fragile trapped individuals. To name a few
of his more than seventy plays: The Glass Menagerie, A Streetcar Named
Desire, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Night of the Iguana, and Summer and
Smoke.

Williams was a colorful character himself. He was very close to his
sister Rose who was mentally unstable; she was institutionized; and he
was guilt-ridden at his own inability to help her. She was very likely
the model for many of his characters. He lived in New York, in New
Orleans, and spent his last years in Key West, FL.

To understand better what should be said about Tennessee, read a
wonderful thesis on the web that addresses Tennessee's remarkable
ability to reflect the American Vision and Reality. Visit the site of

(m. John D. Langford on 8/2/1811, Warren Co, NC; they had 7 children,
including Ann E. Langford who married Thomas Elliot -- this is the
line of Edmund Carter, Charles Wheeler Langford who married Editha Ann
Elliott and their son was John William Langford-- this is the line of
John Long).

There is an old record of a Chancery Court lawsuit filed in
Montgomery Co. TN on 20 May 1843 and later moved to Robertson Co. TN,
that mentions the Laniers. In that suit, John Langford and wife Mary
filed the suit against their son-in-law William Anderson Nichols over
the ownership of certain slaves that their daughter took with her when
she married Nichols. This John and Mary Langford were the John D.
Langford and Mary A. Bennett Langford mentioned above. They filed the
suit "in the interest of all the other grandchildren of John Lanier,
deceased, late of Franklin County, North Carolina, as well as for
themselves." In the suit it was stated that Mary was "a grandchild of
the said John Lanier, deceased", and that she had a greater right to
those slaves than Nichols. There was a deposition in the suit by their
son, Charles Wheeler Langford, as to how he came by his slave, Henry.
Henry was given to him by his great-aunt Sally (or Sarah) Lanier in
Nash Co. NC before he and his family moved to Robertson Co. TN in
1835. John Long has seen the deed abstract in the deed books of Nash
Co. NC for this deed of gift to Charles from Sally Lanier.

James Crawford LANIER and his wives Fanny TAFF and Mary Elizabeth
SPROULL

With many thanks to Jim Woodyard

See the Sproull-Lanier Family Bible begun by John Franklin Sproull
and continued by Mary Elizabeth Sproull Lanier

Husband: James Crawford Lanier

LifeNotes: Lived early life in Stilesboro, GA. He served the
Confederacy in Co, D., First Regiment, Georgia Cavalry. Moved into
Talladega Co, AL to settle a community named Laniers near Kymulga. The
land there had just opened up with the removal of the Creek Indians.

James Crawford Lanier owned a vast amount of land along the Coosa
River including the site of the great Cosa, the Creek town visited by
Hernando DeSoto in 1540 (as chronicled by two of his fellow travelers
in their journals). Lanier's land led up to Kymulga Cave, now referred
to as DeSoto Caverns. There is a Creek creation story that says that
cave is where their people began.

James Crawford Lanier's grandchildren, my Mother and her sister and
cousins, found many arrowheads when they were at played in Laniers.

Later the family moved into Talladega and built a beautiful home that
still stands there, using the Laniers house as a summer residence.
They also had a place at Clairmont Springs, AL, one of the many
mineral spring resorts that dotted the Alabama countryside at the
turn-of-the-century. James Crawford Lanier had a lumber mill,
supplying much of the lumber that built early Birmingham, AL; he also
had a large merchantile business, and there was a large farm in
Laniers. In 1903 he served the county in the state legislature.The
house there is gone, but the little Methodist church the family built
and maintained is still active. [in my garden I have resurrection
ferns lifted from moss at the base of the big oak tree in front of the
church.]

little church in Laniers that Mary Elizabeth and James built and you

Nicholas Lanier

(Contributed by Gordon J. Callon, email: gordon.callon@acadiau.ca)

born:

September 1588, London (England)

died:

February 1666, Greenwich (England)

music:

Solo songs

1. A. Bring away this sacred tree
B. Weep no more my wearied eyes
2. Come, thou glorious object of my sight
3. Do not expect to hear
4. Fire, fire
5. I was not wearier
6. I wish no more
7. Like hermit poor
8. Love and I of late did part
9. Mark how the blushful morn
10. Neither sighs, nor tears
11. No more shall meads be deck'd with flowers
12. Nor com'st thou yet (Hero's complaint to Leander)

Hero and Leander, according to Roger North, writing in his (first)
"Musicall Grammarian", was composed shortly after Lanier's return from
his travels in Italy, 1625-28. The stylistic features of the cantata
would support this claim. North also states that "The King was
exceedingly pleased with this pathetick song, and caused Lanneare
often to sing it, to a Consort attendance while he stood next, with
his hand upon his shoulder." In his second "Musical Grammarian" North
once more comments on the cantata and quotes the opening measures, set
in the bass clef. Taking North's statements at face value, Peter
Holman (Director of The Parley of Instruments) has prepared a
reconstruction of Hero and Leander for baritone and strings.

13. O Amantissime Domine

Lanier was also a visual artist. Only surviving painting that can be
identified: Nicholas Lanier. Self Portrait. (Collection of the Faculty
of Music, Oxford University. Reproduced courtesy of the Heather
Professor of Music, Oxford University.) It has been suggested that
Lanier's Self Portrait was presented to the Oxford Music School, c.
1642-44, when he was in Oxford with the court; if so his canon "Thus,
thus at last" may date from this time.

life:

Nicholas Lanier (1588-1666) was the most prominent member of a large
family of French and Italian musicians in the service of the English
court since the middle of the sixteenth century. He received a
position as one of the lutes in the King's Music, 12 January 1615/16.
Previously (c. 1605-13) he had held a position as a domestic musician
in the household of Robert Cecil. At court, in addition to his
position as lutenist, Lanier was a singer, and performer on the viol.
He was the first to hold the position of Master of the King's Music,
from at least as early as 1626 until his death (with a hiatus during
the Civil War and interregnum), and he served as first Marshall (for
life) of the Corporation for Regulating the Art and Science of Music.

As a composer, Lanier was recognized in his own day, and is chiefly
remembered now, as one of the composers who introduced the new style
of Italian monody to seventeenth-century English music. He was an
important composer of music for court masques, especially those of Ben
Jonson. Indeed, if we are to take Jonson's remarks at face value, he
was the first English composer to write music for a masque that was
sung throughout, and thus may be considered the beginning of a sort of
opera in England-Jonson, in his introductory stage directions to
Lovers Made Men (1617/1640), states, "the whole Masque was sung (after
the Italian manner) Stylo recitativo, by Master Nicholas Lanier who
ordered and made both the Scene, and the Musicke." Jonson also
mentions Lanier (along with Lanier's uncle, Alfonso Ferrabosco) as
composer of music for his Masque of Augurs.

He was a poet: many of the lyrics to his songs are probably his own,
and at least one of his poems was set to music by another composer. He
served as representative and agent of Charles I in the purchase of a
large portion of the extraordinary art collection of the Dukes of
Mantua. This purchase, which has been described as "the greatest
single coup in the history of collecting by any purchaser, prince or
patron", took Lanier to Italy (mainly in and near Venice) off and on
for about three years (1625-28) and was the means by which he came
into direct contact with the new Italian music.

Lanier was both a painter and a print maker, producing several
paintings and two books of prints. As Ben Jonson noted in the remark
quoted above, Lanier provided scenery for Lover's Made Men. He
evidently developed a reputation for knowledge of specialized painting
techniques. Theodore de Mayerne, writing about 1630, comments on a
recipe for "amber varnish" given to him by Lanier. He describes Lanier
as "a superb musician and art lover". De Mayerne states that Lanier
"says that he had learned this and obtained the recipe from signora
Artemisa, the daughter of Gentileschi". It has also been suggested
that during the interregnum Lanier supported himself by painting
forgeries in imitation of masterworks. Sanderson, Graphice (1658),
writes: "It is said that Laniere in Paris, by a cunning way of
tempering his Colours with Chimney Soote, the Painting becoms duskish,
and seems ancient; which done, he roules up and thereby it crackls,
and so mistaken for an old Principall, it being well copied from a
good hand."

2nd-Married: about 1712-13

Died: about 1718 Prince George County, VA

Parents: Robert Lucy and Sarah Barker

1st-Husband: Thomas Anderson

LifeNotes: Thomas Anderson files for a Virginia Land Patent on
09/20/1683 in the amount of 400 acres in Westover Parish, Charles City
Co, Virginia (recorded in Virginia Patent Book 7, 1679-1689 on page
303). His name appears as a head right on the patents of nearby
Charles City County resident, William Peebles, in 1673 along Powells
Creek. Thomas served on several juries, registered his cattle brand
and was indicted for planting tobacco on the Sabbath and added to his
patented lands by purchase from John Jane. His signature has survived
on a petition to the King of England. Thomas Anderson's 1683 patent
was located just south of the headwaters of Powells Creek. It was on
both sides of Cattail Swamp and Reedy Branch on the north side of the
Blackwater River. Thomas called his plantation "Cattails". The patent
was north of and bordered on the south along the 1673 patents of
Richard Taylor and Robert Lucy which separated it from the Blackwater
River.

His children by a former marriage:

* James Anderson, born before 1690, "The Cattails", Charles City
County, VA. Sold his portion of father's land to Conelius Cargill.
James moved a few miles away to the southeast along the Blackwater
River in 1715. Married-1st: Mary Jordan before 1712, Prince George Co,
VA. Married-2nd: Rebecca Cooke about 1743. Children of James Anderson
were: (uncertain which mother goes with whom) Thomas Anderson (appears
on the list of Titheables Below Deep Creek in 1736, Prince George
County, VA), James Anderson, Jordan Anderson, John Anderson, Mary
Anderson, Lyddey Anderson (m. ? Averiss), Priscilla Anderson, Faith
Anderson, William Anderson. Died 11/20/1751 in "Arnols", Surry County,
VA. A copy of James' will is online in the VAGenWeb archives for Surry
County.

* Mary Anderson, born 1690-1695, "The Cattails", Charles City County,
VA. Married Roger Rees. Their son: Thomas Rees. Mary died before 1744.

* Eliza Anderson, born 1690-1695, "The Cattails", Charles City
County, VA. Married before 1711 Prince George Co, VA to William
Sanders.

Born: before 1663

Married:

Died: 1711, The "Cattails ", Charles City Co, VA. See the text of his
will.

Parents:

Their children were:

* Charles Anderson, born about 1697, "The Cattails", Charles City
County, VA. He is named in his father's will. Sold his portion of
father's land to Cornelius Cargill.

Charles Anderson witnessed the sale of the neighboring Sawtree
plantation in 1726 by Elizabeth Duke (nee Taylor) which substantiates
his association with the Taylor family. Note: Elizabeth Taylor Duke
was daughter of John Taylor and Harrietta Maria Hill -- John Taylor
was half-brother of Mary Lucy.

Charles Anderson died in Dinwiddie County, VA.

* Jane Anderson, born Aft. 1697, "The Cattails", Charles City County,
VA.. Maybe married Joshua Meachum.

Above account of estate of Jean Anderson presented by Cornelius
Cargill and recorded.

2nd-Husband: Cornelius Cargill

LifeNotes: It is thought he came to America about 1711. The earliest
mention of him in court records occurs 12/21/1715 in Surry Co, VA,
although that does not mean he lived there. He probably was living in
Prince George Co, VA at that time. Around 1717 he was appointed
Constable of that county. He bought property -- 50 acres on Cat Tail
Swamp-- from Charles Anderson (son of Mary Lucy Anderson Cargill)
3/4/1718 in Prince George Co, VA. The part of Prince George Co. where
he lived became part of the new Brunswick Co, VA. In 1728 there was a
record of a land transfer in his name in Brunswick Co.

There is record of a land transfer in 1727 in Surry Co, VA., land he
had bought from Mary's sons. He received monetary rewards many times
for killing wolves who roamed the county-- 4 pounds, 20 shillings each
time, according to custom. In 1736, Cornelius Cargill was appointed
overseer of the road from the Roanoke River near Hogans to the Long
Branch; such an appointment was considerd an honor for it was every
man's duty to assist in the making and upkeep of public roads.

In 1746, he was made a Justice of the Court in the new county of
Lunenburg Co, VA; he kept that position for 17 years. On 7/1/1755, a
deed states Cornelius sold 400 acres known as Cargill's Elkhorn, to
Theophilus Field; this land may have been in Prince George Co. He also
bought 2 Black slaves, 4 feather beds, 15 cattle and 20 hogs.
interestingly, another deed states that he sold the same to William
Byrd later. It is thought that much was passed back and forth in
gambling transactions. See further extracts.

After the death of Hannah Blanks, Cornelius no longer had a home, he
then bought 400 acres on the north side of the Stanton River in
Halifax Co, VA. Two years later he gave this land to Menoah Tinsley,
his son-in-law in return for the payment of all his debts.

Born: ca 1680 in Scotland

1st-Married: (to Sarah Roberts)

2nd-Married: between 1712-13 probably Prince George Co, VA

3rd-Married: after 1730 (to Elizabeth Daniel)

4th-Married: 1753, Lunenburg Co, VA (to Judith Walker)

5th-Married: about 1753 (to Hannah Blanks)

Died: 1763 in VA

Parents: not known, but it is thought he was kin to Rev. John
Cargill, minister of Southwark Parish-perhaps a brother??

Their children were:

* John Cargill, born 1713. Married Rachel Tinsley. See his Cargill
page and also see her Tinsley page.

* Mary Cargill, born ca 1718. She was cited in court for
non-attendance in church in 1739. Married Thomas Dendy (will probated
3/3/1800). See their Dendy page. Their children: Cornelius Dendy,
Thomas Dendy (m. Mary Ellis Jones; lived in Laurens Co, SC; d. 1803),
William Dendy, Elizabeth Dendy (m. Samuel Powell), Sarah Dendy (m.
James Young), Patsey Dendy (m. M. Walker).

Col. John Love MacKINNON and Catharine DOUGLASS With thanks to Bee
Lane and also thanks to Myrtle Bridges

Husband: Col. John Love MacKinnon

LifeNotes: After 1795, came to North Carolina from Isle of Skye,
Scotland with his parents and siblings. They settled in Richmond Co,
NC. He grew to be a tall slender man 6'6", a "great athlete in water".

The McKinnons belonged to the Marks Creek Presbyterian Church, which
was built on land donated by John MacKinnon.

In 1818, a cousin, Neil McLennan (his mother was Catherine MacKinnon,
sister of Neill MacKinnon) and Daniel Douglass Campbell went down into
West Florida to seek out opportunity for themselves and their
relatives. There they met a half-Scot Chief of the Euchees, Sam Story,
with whom they wintered, then returned to NC to gather their kith and
kin. They went back to FL to live in 1819. John Love MacKinnon made
several trips to FL before moving his family. The part of Florida
known as the Panhandle was just opening up for settlers; FL and AL
were then referred to as the Southwest Frontier.

In 1826, a large group of Gaelic-speaking Scottish families -- all
relatives-- made the long journey to FL, moving themselves and
belongings in wagons. They were the McKinnons, the Douglasses, the
MacIvers, the Campbells, the MacRaes, the McLeans and others. These
families settled in Euchee Valley along both sides of Bruce Creek, in
Knox Hill, Mossey Bend and later in the new town of Eucheeanna which
became the site of the county court house, school house, the jail,
Masonic Lodge, mill and several mercantile stores.

Note: According to R. C. McLean, other Scottish families from
Richmond Co, NC migrated to Barbour Co, AL. (and also Clarke Co, AL)
among them were the McDonalds, the McInnises, and the McLeans; so many
migrated to the area that it was called "Little Scotland". The Pea
River Presbyterian Church in Clio, AL claims the Mt. Carmel
Presbyterian Church in Richmond Co, NC as its parent church. The Mt.
Carmel church in NC was formed in 1770. The Scottish heroine Flora
McDonald lived nearby; she had left Skye to come and live in America.

John and Catharine MacKinnon settled on the south side of Bruce
Creek, west of the Indian Fields in an area called High Lonesome. They
called their home Pleasant Hill. They were friendly with the Euchee
Indians who lived in the Valley. Moundbuilders had once lived where
the Scots now cleared fields. Eagles flew the skies; wolves, bears and
panthers roamed the earth; alligators swam the waters (alligators
still swim the waters!).

Later the Euchees left the Valley and relations with the other
Natives deteriorated so in 1836-7, the resulting Seminole War
occurred. Col. John Love MacKinnon was the ranking military officer in
that part of the state. Captain Laughlin Love MacKinnon commanded a
company of Scottish troops. Other family members and friends who
served were Angus Douglass, Giles Bowers and his brothers James E. "
Jim" Bowers and John Wesley Bowers, and Angus Campbell. Several
battles of the war were fought in Walton Co. After one battle, Col.
MacKinnon, considered the strongest man in the county, put a severely
wounded Enos Evans on his shoulders and walked to the place where his
horse stood, then put Enos on the horse and rode eight miles to the
MacKinnon home where the Colonel removed the bullet and saved the
young man's life (again). For more about the Seminole War, see
Catharine Douglass' page. Catharine kept a refuge for neighboring
families during the war.

John was able to build a fortune; he built the first cotton gin in
west Florida; he raised prime cattle. He traveled often to Pensacola
on business. He was the first Justice of the Peace of Walton Co, FL.

In 1835 he was elected as representative to the Constitutional
Convention at St. Joseph's FL when the state was admitted to the
Union. Daniel G. McLean also went to the Convention.

All the MacKinnon sons served the Confederacy. In that time. the
family suffered loss of their fortune. to the point of hunger.
Following the war, there was a federal raid in Walton Co, FL, keeping
the people terrorized. During the final months of the Civil War on
September 23, 1864, General Ashboth and his Union officers occupied
the Giles Bowers home while his trroops raided Euchee Valley, on their
way to the Battle of Marrianna. Among the homes raided was the Col.
John Love MacKinnon, Sr., home where the soldires took all his food,
livestock, and sent his slaves to Pensacola.

Born: on 2/12/1790, Isle of Skye, Scotland. Note: birth date does not

set up a town, calling it Freeport. He then had a broad road cut

Sarah Douglass MacKINNON and George Franklin TARVIN

Wife: Sarah Douglass MacKinnon

LifeNotes: She was a very young child in the party of Gaelic-speaking
Scottish families that migrated into what became Walton, Co, FL.

There in the beauty of the Florida frontier, the families endured
many hardships and fears. At night, they heard wolves howling. Bears
roamed the woods. Alligators swam the waters. There were Indian raids.
Her father and uncles fought in the Seminole War. After which, peace
came into the area and her family prospered. More settlers moved into
the territory, one of whom was a young gentleman farmer-lawyer named
George Franklin Tervin who bought a large farm near the McKinnons'
land. Sarah and George married and soon had 5 young children; the
future looked happy for the family.

One day in 1858, George rode off to take care of some business in
Georgia. On the trail, he suffered a fatal attack (a brain hemorrhage,
probably). Sarah was summoned; she rushed to be at her husband's side,
but, alas, he had died before she reached him.

So there on the eve of the Civil War in which all her brothers
served, the young widow was left to raise 5 children on her own. She
must have done a noble job. In their beautiful tribute to their
mother, published shortly after she died, they spoke of her high
energy and loving devotion to duty. See the obituary written by her
dear children and published 3 months later.

The Malones are of Celtic origin. In his book Malones and Allied
Families, Randolph Malone features the writings of John Rooney who
tells us that the Malones are directly descended from the Meleisians
who were the first rulers of Ireland.

The Malones were a principal family of County Westmeath, Ireland from
700 A. D. They were first of Connacht and descendants of O'Connor.

Daniel MALONE and Mary (HARRISON?)

Husband: Daniel Malone

LifeNotes: He is the most likely candidate for progenitor of the
Malone family in America. Court records of Justice Robert Wynne show
Daniel in Charles City Co, VA by 1665; he was shown to be about 22

Born:

Married:

Died:

Their children probably were:

1688.

"Robert Mallone, an orphan, and with consent of his father-in-law
John Raine, chooses Samuel Tatem his guardian and promises (to) allow
the orphan at the end of his term, the usual things, and to use his
utmost endeavor to cure his head." In 1694, received 200 pounds of
tobacco bounty for killing wolves.

Married (-?).

His children might have been: Isham Malone (b. ca 1718; m. Judith
Cole and they lived in Lunenburg Co, VA, later went to NC; d. 1815
NC), Robert Malone (m. Mary Harrison on 9/12/1728, Stepney Parish,
Somerset Co.-now Wicomico Co, MD; was back in VA by 1738); deeded an

* Daniel Malone, born between 1695-98 in Bristol Parish, Prince
George Co, VA In surveys by Robert Bolling is stated "99 acres for
Daniel Malone on both sides of Jones Hole Swamp and the Reedy Branch";
Daniel was shown living there in 1717 near George Malone. Married Mary
Busby, daughter of Thomas and Mary Busby, sister of Simon Busby (the
elder Busby family lived near George Malone and left his daughter Mary
one shilling in his will and land on Pond's Swamp to Simon), about

Nathaniel MALONE and Mary WYNNE

Husband: Nathaniel Malone

LifeNotes: He was granted 99 acres in 1715. Owned property adjacent
to Jones Hole Swamp, a gift from his father-in-law Thomas Wynne and he
is metioned in the deed. Also owned property in Sussex Co, and Surry
Co, VA (part of earlier Charles City Co, VA). In 1712 he was arrested
and fined £25 for dealing with the Tuscorora Indians.

Seems to have recovered his good name by 1715, because on 3/23/1715,
Nathaniel Malone was granted 215 acres on both sides of Sappony Creek,
beginning on the west side, adjacent to Thomas Thrower's land.

In 1717 Nathaniel was engaged to make peace with the Seneca. Thomas
Wynne, his father-in-law was also an interpreter for Indian affairs.

In 1718 Nathaniel was contracted by the Saponies to purchase back a
Saponie woman who had been taken captive by "some forreign Indians";
he was to be paid 120 buck skins. A "down-payment" of 90 skins had
been paid when the woman died. the "Great Men of the Saponie" wanted
their skins back and Nathaniel had to appear in court to answer their
complaints; he was ordered to return the skins.

Nathaniel Malone was business partners with his neighbor George
Booth. On 9/19/1721 Nathaniel deeded 100 acres of his Sappony Creek
land to George Booth. Mary Wynne signed her release to the land too.
Booth was granted an additional 850 acres adjacent to Nathaniel on the
southwest side of Stony Creek and on the north side of the Nottaway
River, and on Sappony Creek adjacent to Thomas Thrower. On 3/29/1721 a
survey shows Nathaniel and George owning 300 acres together on both
sides of Turkey Creek.

Another neighboring family of the Malones and the Booths were the
Jones. On 9/13/1723 John Jones Jr. was granted 95 acres on the north
side of the Nottaway River extending along the south side of Sappony
Creek, also bordering the land of Nathaniel Malone. William Jones was
granted land on the other side of Nathaniel's property from George
Booth, along both sides of Turkey Egg Creek north of the Nottaawy
River and bordering land of Sloman Wynne and William Parham (William
Parham had land granted on 7/9/1724).

Other neighbors were Robert Wynne, Mary Wynne's brother, living on
Jones Hole Swamp. William Malone, Nathaniel's brother lived nearby
too. William Moore, Nathaniel Robertson (whose son Drury Robertson
married Winifred Malone, daughter of William Malone and Ann Booth.
Roberston's son Nathaniel married Winifred Malone, daughter of William
Malone, Nathaniel's brother), and Edward Winfield were living close
by.

Hamelton Jun. Michael Wallis, Litt. Hardyman.

Neighbors were the Tuckers, Nathaniel Malone and George Booth, Sr.
Received a gift of land from his father by way of a land swap with
William Tucker. A Prince George County record of 7/11/1723, says "...
300 acres ordered to William Tucker from Nathaniel Malone, for whom it
was surveyed ..." Was left no land in his father's will because he had
received the land 8 years before hs father died. Known as William
Malone of Bristol Parish, Prince George Co, VA (or Dinwiddie Co.)

In 5/1748, William began to amass his Brunswick Co, VA property for
the apparent purpose of providing land for his children., On 5/5/1748,
"William Malone of Bristol Parish, Prince George Co, for the love I
have for my sonm-in-law Drury Robertson of St. Andrews Parish in
Brinswick Co, deed 180 acres in St. Andrews Parish on the south side
of the Meherrin River ..." Later a deed gift of a slave girl named
Phan was given for "love, good will and affection to my son-in-law
Drury Robertson."

of Brunswick for 5 shillings "one negroe Toney" and acreage on the

Co. deeds for affection to son Reuben Malone of Brunswick Co. all the
land belonging to William Malone on the south side of Taylor's Creek,
and one negro boy, Signed: William Malone and Ann (X) Malone."

Note that William's eldest son William did not receive a deed gift
because by law the eldest son would inherit his father's lands in
Bristol Parish.

Dinwiddie Co, for £100 in current money, by John and Martha
Williamson of Prince George County on 6/19/1753 355 acres bounded by

CHAPTER: 061: Marshall
**********************************************************************
This family enjoyed the office of marshal of the King's House, and
from that post assumed its surname; "which gave occasion", says
Banks," to their being often styled Earls Marshal, as well as Earls of
Striguil and Pembroke; but such denomination was matter of curiality
more then of reality". The manor of Hempsted-Marshal, in Berkshire,
belonging to the Marshals, was held of old by grand serjeanty of the
Kings of England, to be the knights marshal, as the offices of
steward, constable, and others were granted then.

----------------------------------------------------------------------
William Marshall and Isabel de Clare

Husband: William Marshall

LifeNotes: He was the Protector, the Earl of Pembroke in right of his
wife. Was heir to his brother John.

Upon the decease of his brother, John Mareschall, marshal of the
king's house, in 1199, he became Lord Marshal; and on the day of the
coronation of King John, he was invested with sword of the Earldom of
Pembroke, being then confirmed in the possession of the said
inheritance.

In the first year of King John's reign, William Marshall was
appointed sheriff of Gloucestershire, and likewise of Sussex, he held
the posts for several years. In the 5th year of King John's reign,
William had a grant of Goderich Castle, in the Hereford County, to
hold by the service of two knight's fees; and in four years
afterwards, he obtained, by grant from the crown, the whole province
of Leinster, in Ireland, to hold by the service of one hundred
knight's fees.

Upon the breaking out of the baronial insurrection, the Earl of
Pembroke was deputed, with the Archbishop of Canterbury, by the king,
to ascertain the grievances and demands of those turbulent lords; and
at the demise of King John, he was so powerful as to prevail upon the
barons to appoint a day for the coronation of Henry III, to whom he
was constituted guardian, by the rest of the nobility, who had
remained firm in their allegiance. He subsequently took up arms in the
royal cause, and after achieving a victory over the barons at Lincoln,
proceeded directly to London, and investing that great city, both by
land and water, reduced it to extremity, for want of provisions.

Peace, however, being soon after concluded, it was relieved. His
lordship, at this period, executed the office of sheriff for the cos.
of Essex and Hertford. This eminent nobleman William Marshall was no
less distinguished by his wisdom in the council and valor in the
field, than by his piety and his attachment to the church, of which
his many endowments attest.

Eva MARSHALL and William de BRAOSE

Wife: Eva Marshall

LifeNotes:

Born: 1206

Married:

Died: 1255

Parents: William Marshall,3rd Earl of Pembroke, and Isabel de Clare

Husband: William de Braose, 6th Baron of Aberg

LifeNotes: Was of Abergavenny. He was suspected of a dalliance with
the wife of Llewellyn, Prince of Wales, who invited William to his
castle for an Easter feast, then threw William in prison after the
banquet. William de Braose was thereafter hanged as was Prince
Llewellyn's unfaithful wife, Joan.

The Annals of Margam (in T. Gale, ed, Historiae Britannicae et
Anglicanae Scriptores XX (Oxford, 1687), 2-18, [anno] MCCXXX) implies
that the "intimacy" was devised by Llywelyn to avenge himself on
William for political injuries inflicted not only by William but by
the entire Braose family; the execution was hailed by the Welsh as a
vindication of a blood-feud against the Braoses dating from at least
1176. Indeed, shortly after the execution Llywelyn wrote to William de
Braose's widow Eva and to her brother William Marshal, Earl of
Pembroke, stating, in effect, that as far as he was concerned, the
intended marriage between Llywelyn's son Dafydd and Eva Marshall's
daughter Isabella could go forward as planned, and that he could not
have prevented the Welsh magnates from taking their vengeance. See J.
Goronwy Edwards, Calendar of Ancient Correspondence concerning Wales
(Board of Celtic Studies of the University of Wales, History and Law
Series, 2) (Cardiff, 935), pp 51-52, nos. XI.56a, 56b. The marriage in
fact took place three months later.

England, 3 months after Llewelyn had hanged Isabel's father for
consorting with Joan, Llewelyn's wife. Married-2nd: Peter FitzHerbert.

James NICOL and Jane GRANT

Husband: James Nicol

LifeNotes: Born in Ayrshire, Scotland, James Nicol came to America in
the 2nd half of the 19th-century. In 1879, he returned to Scotland
where he married Jane Grant, then brought his bride back to America
and they went directly to Starkville, CO. He was a union organizer for
miners. After Starkville, the Nicols moved, following the coal fields
down into Carthage, NM. At some point during this period, James
participated in one of the many captures of the great Geronimo (a
dubious honor to be sure, but true. Ironically James' great-great
grandchildren played regularly in Geronimo's cell at old Ft. Pickens
near Pensacola Beach, FL.You can visit there today).

James made a career change and went into mine management and he moved
his family to Walker Co, AL, living first in Coal Creek (1888), then
Old Galloway (1890), then Carbon Hill, AL. Three generations of his
family lived and worked in this coal mining community of Carbon Hill,
AL; four generations took some part in the American mining industry.

with her new husband. They went first to Starkville, Colorado, where
their first child, James, was born. Then, following the coal fields,
they moved to Carthage, NM and then into the green hills of Alabama to
Walker Co.

Grantown on Spey is a "new town"-- a planned town, created and laid
out in 1765-6 by Sir James Grant of the Grant clan. It is situated in
the Cairngorm Mountains (Blue Mountains). Enjoy Paul Kennedy's
Mountain's Ramblings he takes you on a day-walk. The River Spey, an
alpine river, is one of Scotland's largest and offers great
salmon-fishing; it flows to Moray Firth. The Moray Visitor has

LifeNotes: Born into a Scottish coal-mining family, he has lived most
of his life in Alabama. His parents were community leaders in Carbon

hunting and fishing and he became an avid and great fisherman. He
received his civil engineering degree from Alabama Polytechnic
Institute, now Auburn University.

The first time he ever saw Mary Catharine Smith (he likes to say) he
commented to a friend that he would marry that girl someday. During
the Great Depression, James worked as a mining inspector for the State
of Alabama and later when he worked in corporate mining /land
management, he took care for the miners' safety. As a captain in the
U. S. Army, he served in World War II in Germany and in France. He
received a decoration from the French government for the work he did
to help the French recover from the war. After the war, he went to
work for Republic Steel and for U. S. Pipe (later Jim Walter
Corporation) where he rose to Vice-President of Mines and Lands. He

Husband: maybe Henry Odell

LifeNotes: Speculation that the following refers to Henry-- a Henry
Odell was mentioned in the Land Patent of Valentine Patten for 1,000
acres at the head of the Oqui River in Westmoreland Co, VA who
transferred 20 persons into VA which included Henry Odell . The record
was dated 6 June 1654. On 12 December 1654, we learned in OD Spring 95
that a Robert Hubbard was given credit for transferring 32 persons
into Virginia, including a Henry Odell, also of Westmoreland County,
VA. (The above land was in Stafford County, VA, 1664.)

Calvert County, MD was created in 1654, the exact same year that
Henry Odell was transported into Westmoreland County, VA. (Calvert Co.
is just north of St. Mary's Co. and adjoins Prince Georges Co. on the
east and Anne Arundel Co. on the south.). Walter George Odell in his
"Origin of the Odells of Maryland" stated in his account, " It is
believed that Thomas Odell came up from Virginia. There is an old
tradition with the Ohio Odells, that the emigrant was shipwrecked off
the coast of Virginia in about 1650, and landed in that colony." We
also learn that Campbell in his "History of the Colony and Ancient
Dominion of Virginia" gives an account of the "Virginia Merchant" in
1659, drifting into the York River in a helpless condition. The 320
passengers were landed somewhere on Col. Ludlow's plantation near
Williamsburg. Following a dispute over religous freedoms, some members
of this group, including a John Norwood, removed to Maryland and
received land in the newly established county of Anne Arundell, MD.
Norwood had also received land in Calvert Co.

Information from CAMP - KEMP FAMILY HISTORY, Mann, Col. Robert
Neville and Catherine Cleek Mann, Cedar Bluff, AL (1967), Vol 1, pp.
47-49

Husband: John Odell

LifeNotes: John Odell was a Patriot.

He received from his uncle Robert Beall, the following: Apr 22 1740,
Will of Robert Beall, spra, stated: " I give and bequest unto James
and John Odell one negroe man named Tom to them and theire heirs
forvever." (Pr. Geo Co, MD Wills, Liber 1, f. 298)

Nov. 10 1768 John Odell had a plantation or tract of land of 200
acres, surveyed for him in "Barkely county in the fork between Broad
and Saludy River ... situate on a small branch of Ennoree river called
Odell's branch, bounded on all sides by vacant land." (Pre-Rev. Plats,
vol. 16, p. 555, South Carolina Archives Dept., op. cit.)

Mar 22 1769 John Odell's grant for same land as above, by George the
Third, King of England ... was made (Royal Grants, vol. 18, p. 272,
op. cit.)

June 11 1789 John Odell ... Revolutionary War service. [Historical
Commission, Columbia, S.C.] File #5604 ... Pay Indents ... 63 days
Militia Duty, 1782 ... 4 lbs 8 shillings, 6 pence ... Private in SC
Militia under Gen. Thos. Sumpter. "State of SC, Camden Dist.
Personally appeared Mr. John Odell who being sworn, maketh oath that
above account is just and true and that he has not rec'd any pay for

Eleven lbs. 13 shillings 4 pence. Anither tour of duty 1781, Wit: Levy
Casey. Rec'd from Treasury 11 June 1789, 2 lbs 11 shillings, part pay"

From Sherman Jumper -- Information from CAMP - KEMP FAMILY HISTORY,
Mann, Col. Robert Neville and Catherine Cleek Mann, Cedar Bluff, AL
(1967), Vol 1, pp. 47-49: The name of John Odell appears on a memorial
to 58 Revolutionary Soldiers and Heroines of the Lebanon Methodist
Church area (is this in the Greeneville area?); this memorial was
erected by the Sullivan-Dunklin Chapter, DAR; unveiled 5/18/1958. John
Odell is listed on the muster roll of Sullivan Scouts.

"The Sullivan Independent Company of Volunteer Scouts - 1781 was
organized when 96 District, SC was being terrorized by Tories and
Red-coats. After fall of Charleston and loss of Lincoln's Army, there
were no Americans in arms in the state except a few, small detached
bodies of patriots, mostly old men and boys ... Rapacious plunderings,
outrages, and murders were the order of the day. Volunteer bands
sprang up like mushrooms, many of whom were not mentioned in history,
but it was these that played a large part in the salvation of the
state."

"The Sullivan Scouts was organized among relatives, friends, and
neighbors. It was loose organization of 100/150 men, with 4
co-captains, each of whom, in an emergency would call together the men
nearest him or whom he could reach, and go at once into action, while
the rest of the company was being assembled by signals or courier.
Each of the captains was directly responsible for defending a certain
territory. Sometime the farm bell, the cow-horn, or a woman on
horseback sounded the alarm. The women were placed on alert and used
their ingenuity to warn neighbors of impending trouble ... The men
working in fields or elsewhere, would at once drop everything, gather
their arms, mount a fleet horse and rush to the assembling place. Many
of the Tories were caught and hung. The site is a ford on the Reedy
River, to the rear of the present Prospect Baptist Church. There is a
list of men who were hung here and some of their families are very
prominent today."

Robert OFFLEY, Jr. and Anne OSBORNE

Husband: Robert Offley

LifeNotes: Was a "merchant of the staple", a haberdasher. Lived in
Gracechurch Street, London, England. Subscribed £100 in 1609 to
the Virginia Company. Was nominated for Deputy-Treasurer of the
Virginia Company on 5/22/1622. Was member of the East India Company.

The East India Company was incorporated 12/31/1600 by Queen Elizabeth
I with 125 shareholders and £72,000 for the express purpose of
competing with the Dutch for trade with the Spice Islands. The company
was interested in commerce as well as discovery. The price of pepper
had been raised from 3 s. to 8 s. per pound, meaning that the
subscribers bore the cost and reaped the profit from each voyage.

After 1612, the company conducted voyages on the 'joint stock' system
for the benefit of the company as a whole. After 1623 the company
confined its operations mostly to India and nearby, leaving the East
Indies to the Dutch.

Robery Offley was an incorporator of the Northwest Passage Company
and a Turkey merchant, meaning trade to Turkey, the Mediterraean and
overland to East India. The Turkey Company was interested in commerce
as opposed to Commerce and discovery-like the East India Company.

There were 12 great trade guilds in England (Mercers, Grocers,
Drapers, Fishmongers, Goldsmiths, Skinners, Merchant-Taylors,
Haberdashers, Salters, Ironmongers, Vintners, and Cloth Workers). It
was required that the Lord Mayor of London be a member of one of the
Guilds. The Merchant-Taylors Guild was licensed in the time of Edward
I (1272-1302) and was operated by the Taylors. Henry VI gave the guild
a charter in 1422 under the name of "Masters and Wardens of the
Maternity of St. John Baptist of London". Henry VII was a member of
the guild and changed its name to Merchant-Taylors in 1485. Other
notable members were Prince Henry Stuart, eldest son of James I, and
the Earl of Southampton.

England. He was a London merchant.

John Offley's accounts record book, kept from 11/25/1619 to
3/17/1624, made its way to America and is still in existence and is at
the Virginia State Archives; it is thought to be the oldest record and
oldest paper in Virginia. At the time the book begins in 1619, the
trades of London were organized into Merchant companies, outgrowth of
the older guilds which flourished in Holland and the Low Countries.

Since John Offley dealt largely in silk, we have numerous references
to silk throwers, who were manufacturers of the article, but also he
traded with vintners, clothiers, fishmongers, drapers, armorers,
goldsmiths, ironmongers, grocers, and tailors, besides several whom he
describes simply as 'merchants of London.' Two persons are styled
'merchant starnagers,' clearly not members of any London company, but
whether by choice or necessity is not stated." John traded in
luxuries, shipping spices and trading silks and Persian carpets. From
England he brought fine broadcloth and from America, tobacco. He even
traded medicine, leather, and diamonds.

Sarah OFFLEY and her husbands, Adam THOROWGOOD, John GOOKIN, and
Francis YEARDLEY

With information based on the research and writing of Shirley Brown
with thanks to Dorothy Gibson Tarvin

Wife: Sarah Offley

LifeNotes: Called " beautiful and high-spirited" with a "backbone of
steel and an indomitable will," she was but 18 years old when she came
to Virginia in 1628.

She learned management from her husband and left a long trial of
court cases, one of which, after Adam died, was against a Goody
Layton, who had said to Sarah, "No one could get a bill (payment) out
of Captain Thorowgood, " and to whom Sarah had replies, "Why, Goody
Layton, could you never get yours?", referring to a cancelled note
that had been paid. Goody Layton turned away with a "Pish!", Then said
Mistress Thorowgood, "Goody Layton, you must not think to put it off
with a 'pish', for if you have wronged him, you will answer for it,
for though he be dead dead, I am here in his behalf to right him.'
Sarah swore out a warrant and Goody Layton was ordered to ask her
pardon by kneeling before the court and again to ask her pardon on the
next Sunday at the parish church.

In October 1644 (after her second husband died), Sarah Offley took
two young men to court and accused them of making insulting remarks
about her daughter Sarah (who was about age 12 at the time). James
Lapham was convicted and received 50 lashes. John Farnehoughe was
convicted and was put in secuirity for his good behavior and required
to pay Mistress Gookin damages of 815 pounds of tobacco. (Order book
1637-1675)

A few days before she died, she took Jonathon Taylor, tenant farmer,
to court for improper planting of an orchard and "ground made waste
of".

Wife: Mary Catherine Queenes DeJarnett

LifeNotes: There is an Elias DeJarnett in the 1782 Halifax Co, VA

Born: Married: Died:

Parents: parents were (-?); grandparents were: Mary Watkins Mumford

of more than 600 under the leadership of Phillip Da Richbourg, and

From Dawn Patterson: There is mention of a Thomas Palmer in

in the will of Ann Rebecca (Annaka) Dejarnat, daughter of Elias
DeJarnette, eldest son of Jean deJarnat. In it she names cousins,
Elias Palmer, who took care of her, cousin, Jeffrey Palmer, Polly
Allen and Thomas Palmer, son of Elijah Palmer, deceased; John Palmer,
son of Elias, and Joseph Scott Executors. But I cannot find any
mention of Jean's other sons, John, Daniel, or Joseph having a
daughter named Mary Catherine who married a Palmer. But the Frosts did
not find any other information on the second son John who was baptised
on November 4, 1706, so Mary Catherine could be his daughter, and
Annaka Dejarnette would have been her cousin.

John PEERCE and Sarah SIMKINS

Husband: Dr. John Peerce, Sr.

LifeNotes: He was a ship's doctor.

In an item sent to one author from another-in this cae, Harry Wright
Newman to Sharaon Doliante- is stated that: "Lord Baltimore granted to
'Captain John Pierce, Chyrugeonm #1,000 acres of land which was
entitled 'Pierce's Encouragement'."

"... granted that it 'may be the better Enabled to Do us and our
heirs good and acceptable service'. Wright commented that this was one
of the few occasions when Baltimore granted land as a gift and so
surely Peerce must have been a close friend of the Calverts and "held
in high esteem." This lnad is mentioned in the will of Dr. Peerce and
was in "Baltimore County on the North side of the Patapsco Rover uopon
the Western Branch ...". Survey and patent found in Liber 19, folios
573, 578, Land Office. The land shows up in the Rent Roll of 1705 as
being in the hand of Peerce's heirs.

Thomas PREWITT and (?)

Husband: Thomas Prewitt

LifeNotes: Was in Salisbury, Wiltshire, England. Was transported to
America in 1636 with 7 others to Charles City Co, VA; the patentee, or
person who brought him over, is shown as Joane Bennet. He and his wife
were Quakers. Richard Prewitt theorizes that Thomas came to America in
an indentured state so that he wouldn't have to swear an oath to the
Church or King.

These are 3 records from Richard Prewitt --"On June 2, 1636, Thomas
Privitt was granted 50 acres of land in Charles City Co, VA, being a
neck of ground at the New Poqueson, west upon William Clarke a creek,
then east upon Thomas Harwood a creek. The said 50 acres of land being
due unto him the said Thomas Privett for the transportation of one
servant into this colony."

"In 1646, Thomas Privet confessed he borrowed a canoe from John
Wilson and lost it. Ordered that he pay Wilson 2 bushels of corn for
it 1st November", this from records of York Co, VA (York Co. was
formerly Charles City Co, VA.

On July 25, 1648, Whereas Thomas Privett and his wife were presented
to his court for committing fornication and thereof found guilty.
Court ordered that they shall do a pennance in the parish Church on
the New Pawqueson and during the tyme of devine servis the next
Sabbath Day. The church wardens ordered to see this done. Pruitt and
his wife to appear at the next Court to abine further censure (York
Order Bk 2, p. 387, & Virgina Colonial Abstracts, Vol. 26, p 9)."
Richard Prewitt says this was undoubtedly persecution of the Quakers.
The sect was a problem for Governor Berkeley.

She outlived her husband by twenty years, remaining in Laniers. At
the site of the old house at Laniers, there were many daffodils and
roses.Visit her house at Laniers in my Mother's memory and sample her
Pound Cake (but not if you're counting calories) and make her Candied
Dandied Apples for your kids. Mary spent her later years keeping house
and caring for the young Methodist mininsters who came to live in the

You can visit the little church in Laniers that the family built and

detriment of the citizens and for a period he was forbidden to hold
any public office; this restriction was later rescinded, as in 1691 he
was sheriff and in 1697 he was taking grievances with the people of
Charles City County. See the assorted records re: John Stith.

From "Prince George County Virginia Surveyor's Book 1711-1724", a
book of maps of individual surveys, prepared by Robert Bolling, the
Surveyor of Prince George County during that time: (51) Slowman Wynne
of Surry County 176 acres 30 March 1721 on north side of Nottoway
River between Turkey Egg Creek and Reedy Creek on both sides of
Horsepen Branch. On 6 June 1724 this land transferred to William Jones
Sr. by Wynne.

From Dorothy Tuttle: Proof that Sloman is son of Thomas even though
he was not mentioned in his will comes from a Patent dated 10 Jul 1755
in VA Land Patents 1751- 1755 Bk 31, p 515 FHL Film 29347. Robert
Petway patented land in Sussex Co. between Major Claiborne & Sloman
Wynne. In the patent description it states that Sloman's land was
located "on his brother, Robert Wynn's line." Robert was executor of
his father's will and on 18 Oct 1725 Robert Wynne sold to Sloman Wynne
for 4 shillings 20 A on south side of Nottoway. (Surry Deeds pg 610
FHL Film 34403). Sloman Wynne patented land 16 Aug 1756 located So.

CHAPTER: 078: Tervin
**********************************************************************
Dr. Jeff Crews shares this: The Tarvin (Tervin/Terfyn/Terfin) name
can be traced back to Tarvin Manor in 1066, and William the Conqueror.
Tarvin village which includes this estate is near Chester, England.
The name is said to derive from the Welsh word, Terfin, or boundry,
because Chester, and Tarvin are located very near the present Welsh
border.

William TARVIN and (Nancy -?)

Husband: William Tarvin

LifeNotes: Walter Tarvin tells us: William Tarvin was left 150 acres
of "Laurel Banch" land in Maryland in his father's will and a cow in
his mother's will in 1759.

MAY HAVE been the William Tarvin who applied for a land grant in St.
Paul's Parish, GA, in 1769, receiving 250 acres, and again in 1772,
receiving 350 acres. In the first petition, the number of children is
blank, but the second states his family consists of "A wife, seven
children and five negroes." St. Paul's Parish became Richmond Co, and,
in 1789, Columbia Co, GA. These grants list William's land as being on
Little Kiokee Creek, which is in present day Columbia Co. This is
where it is thought he lived until his death.

Note: On the pension application of George Tarvin, William's son, it
is stated that George had come to Richmond County as a boy.

Born: about 1727, Charles Co, MD

Married:

Died: 11/25/1785, Richmond (now Columbia) Co, GA. He died intestate.
His administrator was George Tarvin. Based on land records, it appears
George tried on several occasions to sell the estate land, and finally
succeeded in 1795

Parents: Richard Tarvin and Elizabeth Dent

Wife: (Nancy -?)

LifeNotes: On 4 April 1785, a Nancy Tarvin was granted 300 acres on
her own headright, bordering on property owned by Beverly Lowe. On
this same date, George Tarvin was granted 150 acres of land on
headrights on Little Kiokee Creek. William Tarvin owned land adjacent
to Beverly Lowe. Nancy could have been William's wife or daughter, but
she must have had a family to get this much land. Note that the grant
date is eight months before William Tarvin is said to have died.

Born: Married: Died: Parents:

Their children were:

* John Tarvin, born about 1752. According to information from Walter
Tarvin on the Tarvin Associaton site, John Tarvin gave his brother
George Tarvin power of attorney to in 1789 to sell his Richmond (now
Columbia) Co, GA property. John was an Indian trader and a resident of
the Creek Nation, according to his passport issued by the governor of
Georgia 4/1/1789. John Tarvin lived at Coweta.

* Richard Tarvin, born 1750. Richard received land grants from Spain
in the Mississippi Territory (Baldwin Co.).

Is he the Richard Tarvin listed on the 1816 census and on the 1816
tax list for Monroe Co, AL???

Is he the Richard Tarvin (farmer, age 55, born GA) that appears on
the Walton Co. 1850 census with a wife Elizabeth (age 50, born GA)??
There is also in Walton Co. in 1850 Elijah Turvin, age 30, born in GA,
farmer. Wife Mary age 27, born in GA, children, all born in FL:
Elizabeth age 12, Mary age 6, Eliza age 6/12

* Ann Tarvin, born about 1756. Married John Youngblood in Columbia
Co, GA on 9/6/1794. They sold 100 acres of land on Little Kiokee
Creek, the land bordered land owned by Gideon Booker, who also was the
neighbor of John Tarvin on Little Kiokee Creek. Is she the Ann Tarvin
found in Monroe Co, AL records??

* George Tarvin, born 1757 in Maryland. See his page. Married Martha
(-?). Was a Revolutionary War soldier; I have a copy of his pension
application and the acceptance. Died in Houston County, GA 1834.

* William Tarvin II. William received land grants in 1787 from Spain
in the Mississippi Territory (Baldwin Co.); listed as Guilliame
Tarvin. In 1789 in Burke Co, GA, married Mary Miller. This family has
their own pages on my site Among The Creeks. Their children: William
Tarvin (d. of yellow fever in Mobile, AL 1812), Elisha Tarvin (m-1st:
Theresa "Betsy" Tate, daughter of David and Mary Randon Tate; m-2nd:
Susan Dean on 9/16/1848, Baldwin Co, AL), Elijah Tarvin (m. Elizabeth
Tate, daughter of David and Mary Randon Tate), Deramey Irene Tarvin
(m. John Jarvis Boon, 1819, AL). They settled in Baldwin Co, AL in
about 1789. Their family were some who died in the terrible Massacre
at Ft. Mims during the Creek War. In the book, "Massacre at Ft. Mims",
by David Pierce Mason, there is this: an early visitor after the
killings noted "Old man Moses steadham, and old man Tarvin must have
really put up a fight, considering how they looked". William Tarvin
left a will dated 1812.

* maybe Nancy Tervin, born 1757

* Child
----------------------------------------------------------------------
George TARVIN and (his maybe 1st-wife -?) and Martha H.(-?) Please
note that the theory of the first wife (and parentage of the first two
children) here is unproven for now and is pretty much speculation.

Husband: George Tarvin

LifeNotes: The family moved to Richmond Co. when he was a boy. Was
living in Richmond Co, GA when he entered service, according to his
pension application., called into service in a draft to substitiute
for William Maddox. Was drafted in fall of 1779. Was a private under

"your petitioner was born in the State of Maryland in the year
seventeen hundred and fifty seven. He was living in the County of
Richmond when called into service where he was brought up from his
boyhood."

On 4/4/1785, George Tarvin was granted 150 acres of land on
headrights on Little Kiokee Creek, Columbia / Richmond Co, GA. He may
have had an earlier marriage. Lived in Effingham, Laurens and Twiggs
Counties before moving to Houston County.

managed to send her daughter Kate to the Young Ladies Seminary and
Collegiate Institute in Freeport, FL.

Kate "Biddy" MacKinnon Tervin graduated in 1879 and her memory book
is filled with sweet notes and poems from her teachers and her
friends, in the lovely florid handwriting of the day. The book holds
devotions. letters, newspaper clippings, printed post cards and little
works of art done in her own hand. To turn the pages of the book is to
understand her life as young girl, as serious student, as loyal
friend, as dear sister, as loving wife, as caring mother and grieving
mother. There is even a lock of her mother's hair -- a rich dark
brown--tied with pink satin ribbon. She married handsome Dick
