    Notes:

    Isaac was of the "Two-Seed-In-Spirit" Baptists...

    Reported in 1920...

    BAPTISTS, Two-Seed-in-the-Spirit, had their origin in the preaching and ultra-Calvinistic doctrines of Daniel Parker, a Baptist elder and preacher of Tennessee. Parker, who was ordained in 1806 in Tennessee became one of the strongest opponents of the organized work of the Church. In 1817 he moved to Illinois, where he continued his opposition to the work and organization of the regular Church for 19 years. Later he went to Texas. In various pamphlets (1826-29) Parker made public some very peculiar theories he held concerning the introduction and perpetuation of evil in the human race. According to these beliefs, God, when He created Adam and Eve, infused into them particles of Himself, thus making them altogether good; the devil corrupted them by infusing into them particles of himelf. Eve, by predestination, brought forth a certain number of good and a certain number of bad offsprings; and all her daughters after her were predestined to do likewise. The atonement, according to Parker, applies only to those born of the good seed, those born of the bad being absolutely lost. This Baptist sect is uncompromisingly opposed to "all human institutions." They are found in 21 States and have nearly 500 churches and nearly 13,000 members.

    Subject: [REUBENROBERTS] Anderson County, TN - Notes regarding Thomas Roberts,William Roberts, and Moses Roberts
    Date: Mon, 31 Oct 2011 15:16:47 -0400 (EDT)

    Hello to my fellow Reuben Roberts Researchers -- this message board has been very quiet for some time now..........

    After having spent considerable time researching the WillIam Roberts line in Warren County, TN, a few months back I began to concentrate my efforts looking into Reuben Roberts and family in Anderson County, TN (1800 - 1817). I live in Anderson County and find myself fortunate to have easier access to information than many researchers as I am closer to the courthouse and the East Tennessee Historical Society in Knoxville. One of the things I was hoping to accomplish is to identify where Reuben & family lived while in Anderson County. I am getting very close but still need to complete a few title searches before I can confirm the location.

    In doing this research I have found a couple of references to members of Reuben's family and of his in-laws, the Asher/Ashurst families. These tidbits prompt me to post this message in an effort to share some of what I've found and see if others have input or comments that will benefit us all.

    I. Thomas Roberts -- In looking at some of the 1999 posts on this board there was a bit of discussion around Thomas Roberts - who he was married to, did he move on to Iowa, etc? Per exchange of notes posted in May through June 1999 from Sheryl Fischer and Ken Robertson, I'm not sure if these issues were ever clarified.

    There is an Anderson County Deed dated 19 October 1830 from Thomas Roberts to Richard Andrews witnessed by Reuben Roberts and John Roberts. This was apparently done as a result Thomas leaving his wife Elizabeth and children and his subsequent move to White County (See Chapter LXIV - Private Acts Passed at the First Session of the General Assembly of the State of Tennessee, 1833. See also "Tennessee Divorces 1797 - 1858" , Taken from 750 Legislative Petitions and Acts, by Bamman and Spero. Richard Andrews was married to Martha Ashurst, daughter of John Ashurst, who was a brother of Reuben Roberts wife Milly (i.e., Martha Andrews/Ashurst was a first cousin to Thomas Roberts).

    Question - Could this earlier marriage of Thomas Roberts to Elizabeth Roberts answer some of the questions raised in 1999? The divorce mentions children of the marriage - does anyone have any information on them? The last name of Elizabeth?

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    II. William Roberts - There is another Anderson County deed dated 21 September 1831 naming William Roberts and Thomas Roberts as heirs of John Ashurst to Daniel Daugherty for the land of of the estate of the recently deceased John Ashurst.

    “This Indenture made the 21st day of September in the year of our Lord One Thousand Eight hundred and Thirty One between William Roberts & Thomas Roberts of the Countys of Warren and also of the County of White and State of Tennessee of the one part and Daniel Daugherty of the County of Anderson and State aforesaid of the other part. Witnesseth that the said William Roberts & Thomas Roberts for and in consideration of the sum of one Dollar to them in hand paid by the said Daniel Daugherty the receipt whereof is hereby acknowledged hath and by these presents doth grant bargain sell and confirm unto the said Daniel Daugherty his heirs and assigns forever the undivided part of Two several tracts of land belonging to the heirs of John Ashurst deceased. We William Roberts & Thomas Roberts being heirs of the said John Ashurst deceased at law one tract of One hundred and six acres of land being the land where the said John Ashurst deceased formerly lived {land description follows} …………”

    This deed was witnessed by Joseph M. Ashurst (brother of Martha Andrews) and James Roberts. This deed is significant because it is evidence of the link between the Reuben Roberts/Milly Asher family and William Roberts of Warren County, TN. This William Roberts is named as an heir to John Ashurst (along with Thomas Roberts) and noted as being from Warren County, TN, not White County (Thomas Roberts was living in White County in 1831).

    I am posting a PDF version of this deed at https://skydrive.live.com/?cid=6c96c11afadfdc92&sa=356416004#!/?cid=1012221a9857853b&sc=documents&uc=1&id=1012221A9857853B%21110.

    I have updated my previous notes regarding William Roberts to reflect this information in the same site.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    III. Moses Roberts - In looking at the Anderson County deeds I find references to Moses Roberts as living very close to where Reuben was apparently living. Example, The Grantee in the 1831 deed noted above, Daniel Daughtery, is found in the 1830 Anderson County census listed with one household between him and Moses Roberts. This Ashurst land is near where Reuben & clan lived. I have seen notes on the internet (uncornfirmed) and even on this messageboard about Reuben Roberts having a brother named Moses.

    Does anyone have information regarding a brother of Reuben Roberts named Moses?

    *************************


    Incidentally, I'm told there is no name John Miller Cantrell. Rather, "Old" John Cantrell who m. Miss Brittain had a son who was known as "Miller" John Cantrell because he owned a mill in SC. That's the John who m. Elizabeth Cantrell. Since my husband apparently doesn't have that line, I'm not getting excited about it but it is a point of interest and clarification if true.

    The Cantrell name orginated in France, and was spelled CHANTELLE. The first Cantrell to be recorded in England was during the rain of King John 1199, AD. He was William Cantrell. The first Cantrell to be married in America was also a William Cantrell, the nineth in line fron the first William Cantrell. William Cantrell arrived on the Ship Phenix, at Jamestown, Vergnine 1608. This William Cantrell is known as the Progenitor of most of the Cantrell's in America.

    From the area of Philadelphia, Pa., the Cantrell's Migroated as "Mishionaries of the Mother Baptist Church" south to North and South Carolines. John Centrell Sr. after service in the Rev. War from N. C. settled in a place called Bucks Creek.

    The Bucks Creek Baptist Church is still standing. The Cantrell family Cemetery is a stort destance away. John Cantrell Sr. is beruied in this cemetery.

    John CANTRELL Sr. was a miller and Baptist Minester. He helped establish the Bucks Creek Baptist Church in Buck Creek, [Sportanburg Co.] S. C. Served as Pastor from 1800 to 1803. John is burried in Cantrell Family Cemetery. John had a brother by the name of Isaac Cantrell. Isaac also was pastor of the Bucks Creek Baptist Church. The Cantrell Cemetery is near the Bucks Creek Baptist Church.



    Notes from Carl D. Cantrell:

    He was married twice. He had seventeen sons by his first wife _______ Brittian and four sons and two daughters by his second wife Jane ______. We have heard from several that there were a number of twins in this large family. He died in 1803 and his sons Abraham, Stephen and Moses administered upon his estate.

    There are may traditions in the family regarding John Cantrell and his family and their moving to the Carolinas, but the exact date of his leaving New Castle county is not known. It is known, however, that he was living in Rockingham county, or what is now that county, North Carolina, before the Revolutionary War, and shortly after the war he moved to Ninety Six District, now Spartanburg county, SC, where he owned over eight hundred acres of land on Buck creek, waters of the Pacolet river. John Cantrell and his family were devoted and active members in the Buck creek Baptist church and some of his descendants still attend this old church. There is not reliable authority for a correct tabulation for any but the first three of the children of John Cantrell and we have endeavored to make the list correct from records, rather than from lists furnished from memory by his descendants. His father moved to the big valley of Virginia before John reached his teens. In 1738, his father was living in Orange county, Virginia. He spent all of his life as a farmer. We don't know what education he had but he probably received what ever was available to frontier lads. The family genealogist stated that he married two times and, from the ages of the children, this is probably true. She stated that his 1st wife was a Miss Brittain. She was probably a sister of Joseph Brittain, who lived near John in North Carolina and who is mentioned in the records of his brother, Joseph, in 1759, in Rowan county. The marriage was probably somewhere in the valley of Virginia. In the 18th century, families from Pennsylvania filtered down through the Great Valley of Virginia to the Piedmont Plateau of the Carolinas.

    The family had become associated with the Baptist Church and Isaac, John's brother, was ordained a minister. The family settled in the "Land of Eden," Granville county, North Carolina, which became Orange county in September, 1752. John is first located on a tax list submitted by the Sheriff in 1754. The list was for two white polls. His brother Isaac received a land grant for 202 acres of land in Orange county, November 13, 1756. He sold this land to John on March 13, 1759. The deed was witnessed by James Watson. The land was on a ridge between the waters of County Line Creek and Jordons Creek. The land was about seven miles north of the Upper Branch of the Haw River, on the waters of Wolf Island Creek which was a branch of the Dan River to the north. It is about two miles north of the present town of Reidsville, Rockingham county, North Carolina. After the tax list of 1754, the next time we find John is in the Minutes of the Orange County Records, when he is sued by James Cary Jr. on a debt in the December court of 1758. In the Court of September, 1759, he and his brother Joseph were on a road jury to lay out a road from Hogna's Creek to the county courthouse. He and William Savage were appointed Overseers of the road. In August, 1760, they were appointed to another road jury to lay out a road from Daniel McGullon's plantation to Taylors road leading to the court house. He was appointed overseer to the lower section. In August, 1763, Henry Cobb was appointed to replace John on the Lower town road, and in May, 1765, John Morrow was appointed Overseer in place of John on the other road. In May, 1766, John was appointed Overseer of a road in place of William Laughlin. On November 12, 1765, John sold his 202 acres of land to William Jones. No record of his having purchased other land are found in Orange county records. Guilford county, North Carolina, was formed in 1771 from the western part of Orange county. John and his family lived in the northern part of this new county, and this area became Rockingham county in 1785. But, by this time John and his family and many others in the area had moved south westward down the Piedmont Plateau to the 96th District of South Carolina. When this move was made has not been firmly established but it appears to have been shortly after the close of the Revolutionary War. His 1st wife died and he married Jane________.

    The 1st wife is probably buried at the Wolf Island Baptist Church Cemetery. The church was formed in 1777 by his brother, Isaac, on a part of his 770 acre farm. Isaac's 1st wife died in the area and she was probably buried on the ridge where the church was built. John's wife is probably buried at the same burial place. In the 1960s, the field markers were removed to facilitate mowing. It was estimated that there were probably one hundred unmarked graves in the cemetery. The family genealogist stated that he had seventeen sons by the 1st wife and four sons and two daughters by the 2nd wife. She admitted there was no reliable authority for a correct tabulation for the listed children of John except for the first three. She had heard the tradition of the Cantrell with twenty-one sons and though there was available evidence that Isaac was more likely to have had the twenty-one sons, she attributed them to John and preceded to compile a list of twenty-one. We now know that two of the listed sons were not Cantrells but Curtis. This was due to a misreading of the 1790 census. We know that at least three of the children listed were nephews, sons of brother Isaac. Two sons listed were never located on census reports or other records, but this does not mean that they did not exist, so we end up with a list of sixteen sons. Because two daughters of John were born during the years of the 1st marriage, we can assume there were at least four daughters.

    Soon after John arrived in the 96th District, later Spartanburg county, South Carolina, he acquired 800 acres of land on Buck Creek, waters of the Pacolet River. Later his brother Isaac and many of his sons and nephews also acquired land in the area.

    In 1790, John is listed as head of household in the census of the 96th District. He had one son under sixteen and two daughters at home. Many family names on this census were familiar names first located in the court records of Orange county, North Carolina. We have assumed that John and his brothers were the first to use the spelling of the family name as Cantrell, but now we find his father, Joseph used this spelling in 1758 in Virginia. The history of the South Carolina Baptist Church gives statistics for the Buck Creek Baptist Church for the period 1790-1800. This church claims to have been a constituted body since 1779. Situated near Pacolet River about twelve miles northeast of Spartanburg, it became a constituent of the Bethel Association in 1789. In 1790, the church had 78 members. When John's brother, Isaac moved south in 1795, he became the minister there from 1796 though 1798. John was a messenger to the Bethel Association from 1797 though 1799. In 1800, John is listed as the minister.

    The church building has been rebuilt several times in the past 200 years. At the present time, there is a new, large, red brick church building across the road from the old church location and the cemetery. It is located on a hill, about a quarter of a mile north of the mouth of Buck Creek, about 2 miles west of Mayo. Descendants of the family are still members of the church. John was not listed as the head of household in the 1800 census of South Carolina, but his was listed in the household of his son, Moses, age 36. The household listed a male and female over 45 years of age. We know that John owned three slaves and the listing for Moses had 3 slaves listed. John died February, 1803, and three sons, Abraham, Stephen, and Moses were appointed administrators of the estate. The probate was recorded in Deed book "L" page 193. His widow, Jane, received a dower settlement. In the last several years, a number of researchers have tried to locate this deed book without success. John is probably buried at the Buck Creek Baptist Church Cemetery. The center of the cemetery has at least one hundred graves marked by fieldstones with only graves since the 1850s containing information on the stones. Jane is not listed as head of household on the 1810 census. She was probably living in the household of a married daughter.

    Following information from notes compiled through the CantrellCousin Project.......... First, NOTES from Warren G. Cantrell ..........

    "One of Isaac's descendants stated in 1928 that Isaac married first, Talitha Cloud, and that she was a granddaughter of William Cloud, of County of Wilts, England, who bought 500 acres of land from William Penn, came over in 1682, landed at Philadelphia, and after tarrying awhile in or near that city went far into the woods, settling at length, in what is now the town of Concord, in Delaware County, PA. His house was just across the state line from New Castle Co. As the eldest child of Isaac was born in 1751, we can assume that the marriage was about 1750 and it would indicate that if Talitha was a Cloud, then her parents had also lived in the big valley of VA.
    We know that Isaac became an ordained Minister of the Baptist Church. There is no doubt that the last 60 years of Isaac and John Cantrell's lives, they devoted much of their energy to God's work and they became part of God's design for America. Hundreds of descendants have followed in their footsteps."

    Isaac is first located in the county records of Old Orange Co., NC 14 Dec. 1756, when he purchased 200 acres of land from the Earl of Granville and the deed was witnessed by Wm. Churton. In the Caswell Co. land grants, we find where Isaac was granted 202 acres of land on a ridge between the waters of County Line Creek and Jordon Creek. He sold this same land to his brother, John, 13 March 1759, and the sale was witnessed by James Watson. On the 10th of Nov. 1761, he purchased 280 acres of land from Robert Cate, Sr. and the deed was witnessed by Robert Cate, Jr. A purchase of 115 acres on the Northeast side of Haw River below Collins Creek is recorded 30 July 1760 in Caswell Co. land records and 13 Aug. 1765 in Orange Co., as a purchase from the Earl of Granville.

    On the 26th of April 1768, he sold 300 acres to Henry Pickett Jr. and the deed was witnessed by Thomas Cate. In the Minutes of the Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions of Orange Co. in the Province of No. Carolina, Court of Aug. 1764 at Childsburg which was then the name of the county seat, changed to Hillsboro in 1766, Isaac was appointed to a Grand Jury that was called and sworn. In the same Court, Isaac and other neighbors were appointed to a Road Jury to lay out a road to Tinnigs Mill, thense to Crow's Ford, thense to Cape Fare Road and to make a report to next Court.

    A church, Wolf Island Primitive Baptist Church, was formed by Isaac Cantrell and he was pastor of the Church for over twenty years. The Rockingham County Court Minutes indicate that the Church was locally known as "Cantrell's Meeting House" as early as 1785 and as late as 1807. It is noted that the first known pastors of Wolf Island Church owned and lived on the same farm. The land was first owned by Isaac Cantrell who sold the property to Clement Whittemore in 1798. In 1803 Whittemore sold the land to Thomas Moore, who deeded part of the farm to his son-in-law Robert Shreve in 1831. Robert Shreve was a step-son of Robert Cantrell, grandson of Isaac Cantrell. There are many purchases, sales and witnesses of deeds by Isaac Cantrell until he migrated to the old 96th District of SC.

    Isaac Cantrell Estate Papers--File 736, Spartanburg County, S.C. & Court of Common Pleas, Judgement Roll #302

    According to Annette Pirkle Starr, Isaac Cantrell died in Spartanburg SC and left a will dated Aug.23, 1805. She also stated that he had (at least rwp) two wives, Talitha CLOUD and Mary LINDER. Mary is shown as the widow in the following documents. John Pirtle, George Purtle, Sarah Pirtle, and Isaac Pirtle- "grandson of the said Isaac Cantrell" attended the proceedings. It's likely that John Pirtle is John Pirkle of Rockingham Co. NC, George - John's son. Sarah Pirtle is probably John's daughter-in-law, Sarah Cantrell Pirkle, wife of William Sr., in attendance with her son, Isaac K. Isaac Cantrell was born about 1733 according to Lawrence Bankston's testimony ,"He was about 72 years old."

    Isaac Cantrell Estate Papers--File 736, Spartanburg County, S.C. 17th February of 1806.

    Court of Ordinary met at Spartanburg Court House to try the protest of Peter Cantrell of Isaac Cantrell will as requested--the same to be proven in due form of Law.

    1. James Ezell and John Pirtle desposed that they signed the will of Isaac Cantrell at the testators request in his presence. They did not see him sign the Will nor did they sign at the same time.


    2. Lawrence Bankston He knoweth the testator about 50 years, The dec’d had a ver bad pain in his head & he the dec’d told him he thought it made him dull. He was about 72 years old. He done little by business but trusted to his wife or generally asked his wife, when a person came to settle, if it was not so and so.


    3. Isaac Young deposeth he was not in his riight senses in regard to the Church, He never agreed to anything to as to stand to it.



    4. Esq._____Turner

    He knew him for 10 years and did not think he was in proper senses. He only knew him in the Church and thought him childish in that respect and that it was common talk in the neighborhood that he was
    in his dotage, that he lay on a sick bed 2 years ond one month before he died.

    5. Capt. J. Turner

    deposeth he very often saw him and thought he was possessed of as strong a mind as the nature of his infirmanent and age would admit. The dec’d asked him to be Executor and he refused because
    the children were not all equal.

    6. John Pirtle,

    cross examined deposeth that about 14 years ago he thought was out of his senses but at the time he signed the will he was in his proper senses.

    7. James Ezell,

    cross examined says he was in his proper mind when he signed as a witness

    8. Rev. John Bankston

    He had known the dec’d from a boy. He Drew the Will contested. He signed his name as a witness and was named an Executor.. He requested the deceased to take his name out as an Executor. That he did believe that he was of disposing mind and memory, at least it was so to the last he knew and he thinks this to be same.

    9. William Garrot

    Deposeth he the dec’d was of a right mind and could do his business. That he was an industrious man, never kept an overseer and he thinks he directed his farm and he thinks he was in his proper mind. Some years ago he did not seem submissive to the church and he thought he might not be right.

    (Conclusion of protest Inquiry)

    Decided:

    That the Will as far as respects the personal property is valid and sufficiently proved. But it is not sufficient to convey the landed property.

    Birth:
    formerly New Castle Co., PA

    Religion:
    Primitive Baptists, are also known as Hard Shell Baptists, Anti-Mission Baptists, or Old School Baptists. The adjective, "Primitive", in the name has the sense of "original".

    While living in New Castle County, Joseph's son, Isaac Cantrell, became associated with the Welsh Tract Baptist Church located at the foot of Iron Hill, in Pencader Hundred. It is the oldest Primitive Baptist church in America, and Isaac was probably licensed to preach by this group. As the Church was composed of Welsh People, the preaching for about one hundred years was in the Welsh language. Isaac’s mother, Catharina, was more than likely of Swedish parentage, but we know for certain that his grandmother, Dorothy Jones, was born in Wales. The Welsh language is not just a dialect of English; it is a language with an older pedigree, and a distinct one. Isaac Cantrell would have to have been fluent in the Welsh language to have been a member of this church in the 1700s.

    Isaac married Talitha Cloud Abt 1750, Rockingham County, North Carolina. Talitha (daughter of Jeremiah Cloud, The Immigrant and Elizabeth Ann Bailey) was born 0Sep 1731, New Castle County, Delaware; died 0___ 1768, Reidsville, Rockingham County, North Carolina; was buried Wolf Island Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery, Reidsville, Rockingham County, North Carolina.

    She is Anne McDonald, I believe, and a lot of her posts have been posted under my name by jc. When you get on the Norris forum, look for my name Catherine Hodnett, and then look for jc's posts to me. She has picked up some of Anne's latest stuff, including the military application for a pension and several deeds she is using to support her theory that a Thomas Norris is Abner's father. It looks good on paper, as jc says. jc is Jane Curci, very good researcher who likes to help people.

    By the way, someone picked up a family from Surry VA in which Abner of 1758 Lunenburg, VA is listed as a child. Anne says she doesn't think it's his family. But they are in VA before 1740, and obviously would be there until 1760 or later, before moving on to NC and SC and later TN. It looks promising to me, but then I haven't researched it either. This is what it looks like:
    Thomas Norris, born abt 1720 Surry, VA
    Mrs Thomas Norris (leaving plenty of room for her to be named Tabitha, as Anne thinks Thomas' wife's name is Tabitha!) born about 1720, Surry,VA. Is Surry close to Amelia County, which is where Thomas was first, maybe with his father John).
    Kids:
    Thomas born abt 1748 VA
    Jeremiah 1751 VA
    William 1755 VA
    Abner 1758 Lunenburg, VA
    Ralph L 1763 VA
    Elizabeth 10 Mar 1765 VA She married a Cantrell.
    This family ended up following roughly the same migration pattern Anne keeps mentioning for Abner and his family. First, VA, into NC, maybe back to VA before going to SC, and ending up in TN.
    I don't know if this is Abner's family or not, obviously, but we sure do have a lot of Thomas', Williams, Abners, and Elizabeths in our line. We're not big on Ralphs, or Jeremiahs.
    There are several people who have posted to this information and I will be writing them soon.
    There are several good possibilities if his father is Thomas. It needn't be someone whose name we've never seen mentioned before, as Anne sometimes think it will be.

    And here's something I have just picked up and don't know how accurate it is yet either, it puts an extra Abner in the lineup, (but I think the extra one, Abner of 1783, actually belongs to a James Norris, probably our Abner's brother):
    Thomas P. NOrris born 1862 TN to
    Abner B. Norris born 1823 Bledsoe, Tn to
    Abner Norris born 1803 NC to
    Abner Norris born 1783 NC to
    Abner Norris born 1758 VA (ours) to
    John Norris b. 1710 SC to
    John Norris b 1672 SC to
    Thomas Norris b 1638 MD to
    Thomas NOrris b 1609 Eng

    Our direct line up would be David Norris of 1800 SC to Abner of 1758 (we did think David was son of Simon William Norris born 1776; but it doesn't look that way now, so can't figure where Simon fits, because you can tell from the family names shared between him and David and James, DAvid's brother, that they are linked somehow.)

    The researchers seem to be divided, most of the content to leave Abner of 1758 as a son of John and Jane Norris; and part of convinced he belongs to Thomas because of the land deeds. Someone told me years ago that Abner had mentioned his father was a Thomas in his application for military pension, but that wasn't true. I have seen that; he doesn't mention a father's name at all. We just have the Thomas from the land deeds.

    JOSEPH2 CANTRELL, (Richard1),

    b abt 1695 Philadelphia, PA m Catharina _____. Joseph is named as a grandson in the will of Jane Jones, written in 1730. He apparently grew up in Philadelphia, and moved when a young man to what is now Wilmington, New Castle County, Delaware, about 20 miles down the Delaware River from Philadelphia. This area had been settled by the Swedes, including some Finns, in 1638, and they had established there the Holy Trinity Church, known in later years as "Old Swedes Church.".

    The present structure was built in 1698 and is still in use today. It was Swedish Lutheran until 1791, when the last Swedish pastor departed and jurisdiction was transferred to the Protestant Episcopal Church. Joseph married probably married about 1718, his wife was named Catharina. Susan Christie in 1908 thought that Catharina was probably a descendant of one of the old Swedish families, and I tend to agree with that conclusion. Some researchers have thought that Joseph's wife was Catherine Heath, but I have seen no record or evidence to support that idea.

    Joseph Cantrell and his wife were attending Holy Trinity (Old Swedes) Church by 1720, and three of their children were baptized there between 1720 and 1726. Joseph and his family probably lived in the Wilmington area of Delaware until the 1730's. They are said to have been in Orange Co., Virginia, in 1738, and possibly lived there until about 1750.

    At that time the proprietor of the Granville District in North Carolina was opening that area for settlement and offering good land at low prices. Many families traveled down the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia into North Carolina, and Joseph Cantrell and several of his children were apparently among those who made this journey. No will or estate settlement for Joseph Cantrell has been found in Delaware or in North Carolina, but he is thought to have died in North Carolina.

    The 1755 tax list of Orange Co., North Carolina, shows Joseph's son John Cantrell with two taxable white males. Since John's sons were under 12 years old, it seems likely that joseph Cantrell was the other male, and that he was living with his son John at that time. Joseph probably died in the 1760's, but no record has been found of his death. Joseph and Catharina are thought to have had ten or more children.

    end of comment

    From material prepared by Eddy and Glenda Harrel - Reference attributed to "Early Families of the North Carolina Counties of Rockingham and Stokes with Revolutionary Service", compiled and published by members of James Hunter Chapter, National Society, Daughter of American Revolution of Madison, North Carolina, published 1977:

    Joseph spent his early boyhood in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Joseph and Catharina lived in New Castle County, Pennsylvania on or near the site of the present city of Wilmington, Delaware, and were attendants at Holy Trinity (Old Swedes) Church before 1720. Their first three children were baptised at the old historical church, known as Old Swedes, which is one of the oldest and quaintest churches in this country.

    Joseph was probably a farmer in these lower counties of Pennsylvania, which later became part of Delaware. A published work of the wills in the county of New Castle fails to reveal a will of Joseph or Catharina. It is possible that Joseph accompanied some of the sons on the move south to North Carolina. In 1752 and 1753, son John was taxed for two white polls in Orange County, North Carolina. One may have been his father. A complete list of the children of John and Catharina has never been found. The nine children listed were compiled from family records and the court and county records of Orange County North Carolina. The sixth child (a female, name unknown) was born about 1722.

    Christina Parish was mostly situated on both sides of Christina Creek, partly on both sides of Brandywine Creek in New Castle County and in the Hundreds of New Castle, Christina and Brandywine. It stretched two Swedish miles in length, and one in breadth. The most remote families of the parish were not more than six and a half English miles distance from the church. The city of Wilmington is built on the Swedish "church land" and the charter for the town was granted on 1735. At the time Joseph Cantril went there, it was known as Christina.

    Many of the earliest records of this locality have been lost, or destroyed, and at best are very incomplete. There is evidence, however, from the scattered records in New Castle County today, that descendents of Richard Cantril lived there from before 1720 until 1797, though the majority moved south during this period.

    A published work of the wills and probates of New Castle County during the period of Joseph's residence there fails to reveal his will or probate. As he was a man in his 50s when his sons moved south to Carolina, it can be assumed that he made the move with his sons. In the tax list submitted to the Orange County Court, North Carolina for the year 1754, his son John's household listed two taxable white males. As John's sons were under 16 years of age, it can be assumed that one of these was his father, Joseph.

It is probable that Catharina was a daughter of one of the Old Swedes, first settlers of this section, but we could not verify this.

A published work of the wills and probates in New Castle county, does not contain any record of Joseph or Catherine. It can be assumed that they had made the trip south.

    In the tax list submitted to the Orange County Court for the year of 1754, son, John was listed as having two taxable white males. As John's sons were under 10 years of age, the possibility exists that this other was for his father.

He married Catherine Heath ca 1718. According to one genealogist, she was a daughter of John and Hannah Heath. So far, research has not been located to substantiate. We do know that her christian name was Catherine from the baptismal records at the Holy Trinity (Old Swedes) church at Wilmnington, Delaware. One researcher has stated that she was a great granddaughter of Thomas Heath who came to America in 1635 on the ship "SAFETY" landing in VA. and later moving north and finally settling near New Castle, PA.

    From the Holy Trinity records of 1697 to 1773, which were translated from the Swedish to English in 1890, we find that Joseph and Catherine had three children baptized there in the 1720's.

John's oldest son was too young to have been taxed so the other one may have been for Joseph. A complete list of the children of Joseph and Catherine has never been located. One daughter may have been Sarah, who was the wife of Lawrence Bankston. For over 60 years the Cantrell and Bankston families migrated and settled together.

    Joseph Cantrell was born about 1695 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and after reaching manhood moved to the “lower counties of Pennsylvania” that later became the state of Delaware. He married Catharina (surname unknown) about 1718, and they were living in New Castle County, Pennsylvania, near the present city of Wilmington, Delaware, and before 1720, were attendants at Holy Trinity (Old Swedes) Church. Catharina was probably the daughter of one of the original Old Swedes families who first settled on the Swedish “church land.” From the Holy Trinity records of 1697 to 1773, which were translated from Swedish to English in 1890, we find that Joseph and Catharina had three children baptized there in the 1720s. They were Hannah, John and Joseph.

    At the time Joseph Cantrell settled there, the town was known as Christina, which was mostly situated on both sides of Christina Creek, partly on both sides of Brandywine Creek in New Castle County, and in the Hundreds of New Castle, Christina and Brandywine. The most remote families of the parish were not more than six and a half miles from the church. The city of Wilmington, Delaware was built on Swedish “church land.” The charter for the town was granted in 1735.

    There aren’t any further records of Joseph or Catharina in the remaining records of Delaware, but from the records of Jefferson County, West Virginia, we know that in 1738, Joseph and his brother, Zebulon, were involved in a lawsuit in Orange County, Virginia. The libel suit brought against 54 defendants for “signing a scandalous paper reflecting on the Complaintiff” by Rev. William Williams (Presbyterian) occurred on July 27, 1738. It was filed at the Orange County, Virginia courthouse. Both Joseph and Zebulon were listed as "other defendants." The events that were described in the suit probably happened somewhere between Winchester, Virginia and what is now Martinsburg, West Virginia, which is where the Rev. Williams lived.

    While living in New Castle County, Joseph's son, Isaac Cantrell, became associated with the Welsh Tract Baptist Church located at the foot of Iron Hill, in Pencader Hundred. It is the oldest Primitive Baptist church in America, and Isaac was probably licensed to preach by this group. As the Church was composed of Welsh People, the preaching for about one hundred years was in the Welsh language. Isaac’s mother, Catharina, was more than likely of Swedish parentage, but we know for certain that his grandmother, Dorothy Jones, was born in Wales. The Welsh language is not just a dialect of English; it is a language with an older pedigree, and a distinct one. Isaac Cantrell would have to have been fluent in the Welsh language to have been a member of this church in the 1700s.

    A record of Isaac’s brother Zebulon being a witness to the will of Thomas Edmond on July 21, 1758, is among the Welsh Tract Baptist Church records, and lends further evidence that the Cantrells were early members of this church.

    About 1747, many of the Cantrells as well as allied families joined a large caravan in the movement southward. They moved along the Great Wagon Road down through the Great Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. Within view to the west of the Valley rose the Alleghenies and to the east were the Blue Ridge Mountains. From Roanoke, the Wagon Road went through the Staunton Gap and on south to the Piedmont Plateau of the Carolinas. They settled in the "Land of Eden" Granville County, North Carolina, which became Orange County in September 1752. Later, in 1785, this part of Orange County became Rockingham County.

    In the tax list submitted to the Orange County Court for the year of 1754, John Cantrell was listed as having two taxable white males. It is possible that one of the males may have been his father Joseph. Isaac received a land grant for 202 acres of land in Orange County on November 13, 1756. Isaac sold this land to his brother John on 13 Mar 1759.

    I have created this memorial in honor and memory of Joseph and his descendants at Old Swedes Church where he was a member and several of his children were baptized. He was my husband's 5th great grandfather.

    Please, please remove all information from your files that Catherine was a daughter of John "Snow Shoe" and Hannah Haynes Heath. That was a ruor that I started 25 years ago and have long regretted. John and hannah did not and I repeat did not have a dau. named Catherine. Futher there is not proof that Catherine was a Heath. That was a rumor that Nobel Bethel started in 1928.
    His opinion was based on the 1747 will of John Heath that named a cousin, Alice Cantrell as an heir. john and Hanah Haynes Heath never left MA or Conn.

    Really hit jackpot today, my ancestors were the above, their son, Capt. John Henry Byars b.1734 m. Elizabeth Thomason (Thompson?) b.1735, they had a son called Capt. George Byars (1771-1843 )m. Sarah Watkins (1794-1869), their son William Peyton Byars (b.1792-1873) m. Nancy Sutton.

    These two moved their family to southern Illinois (Marion Co.) in 1827 and the family pretty much stayed there until WW2 when my oldest brother,

    William D. Byars, Jr., relocated to Oklahoma. His only son,

    William Robert Byars lives near Tulsa. I've been trying to find info about James Henry's parents and how they came to America & from where.

    Believe this is the Byers sept of the Clan Lindsay and they came from Scotland via Ulster in the Plantation of the 1600's.

    Do please write me if you have anything to add. Sure hope you find this useful. CGreen2505@aol.com

    I would like to share the following information from Marjorie Tucker. Marjorie was a Byars researcher over the past 20 + years. She passed from this life last year but wanted to share her work with other Byars
    researchers. I have included below her comments regarding the James Byars deed in Granville County, North Carolina (1757), and her transcription of that deed.

    Tim, I suppose you gave up on my transcribing the deed! It was very difficult, but I am satisfied with my results. I very much appreciate your scanning it for me. That helped a lot.

    I am attaching it as a file, but I have made comments that I will paste here. I would very much like to have copies of this deed sent to all serious Byars researchers. I consider this a very important new breakthrough. I welcome comments by others.

    COMMENTS

    The following is a copy of the abstract of the Granville Deed, which has appeared in print for many years - at least as early as 1944 in the Will Franke papers:

    Granville Co., NC, Book C, page 334 - Indenture Nov. 3, 1757 Nathaniel Henderson and wife, Parish St. John to James Byars of Hanover County, Va. 400 acres in County of Granville, Parish of St. John - Both sides of Michael's Creek along Haywood (?) line. Witness Wm Sims - Proven Dec. 6, 1757.

    There is a very important inaccuracy in this abstract. The location of the 400 acres is crucial to Byars research. It is a "parcel of land containing by estimation four hundred acres situate lying & being in the County of Granville & Parish of St. Johns & on both sides of Michael's Crook of Island Creek."

    Both Nathan Byars and William Byars took the State Oath of Allegiance Nov. 15, 1777, being of 77 persons in the Island Creek so doing. For some time I had been unsure of the identification of this William, because there was only one William who received a pension from the Rev. War from either North or South Carolina, and he was William, son of David Byars and Margaret Carson.

    I now believe the William of Island Creek, was the William who married Sarah Ann Doggett. I found a note in the Byars/Byers Family Enquirer, Vol. No. 1, March 1986, page 5 that there is a reference to William Byers being a Rev. Soldier in the DOGGETT FAMILY BOOK, Pub. 1894. This William has no DAR record, and did not receive a pension.

    Nathan Byars and William Byars were most likely brothers or cousins.

    It is important to find that James Byars bought land in the Island Creek area, but it is still unclear whether he ever lived there. Note that he paid for the 400 acres with Virginia currency, indicating he was living in Virginia at the time (1757). Note also that James and his wife, Rachel, of Hanover Co., VA, sold half of New Market Grist Mill Feb. 8, 1790, indicating that he was still living in Virginia then.

    The 400 acres bordered the land of Capt. Sherwood Haywood. His name was not clear in the abstract.

    Note: I still have not found that James' name was James Henry.

    Following information from notes compiled through the CantrellCousin Project.......... First, NOTES from Warren G. Cantrell ..........

    "One of Isaac's descendants stated in 1928 that Isaac married first, Talitha Cloud, and that she was a granddaughter of William Cloud, of County of Wilts, England, who bought 500 acres of land from William Penn, came over in 1682, landed at Philadelphia, and after tarrying awhile in or near that city went far into the woods, settling at length, in what is now the town of Concord, in Delaware County, PA. His house was just across the state line from New Castle Co. As the eldest child of Isaac was born in 1751, we can assume that the marriage was about 1750 and it would indicate that if Talitha was a Cloud, then her parents had also lived in the big valley of VA.
    We know that Isaac became an ordained Minister of the Baptist Church. There is no doubt that the last 60 years of Isaac and John Cantrell's lives, they devoted much of their energy to God's work and they became part of God's design for America. Hundreds of descendants have followed in their footsteps."

    Isaac is first located in the county records of Old Orange Co., NC 14 Dec. 1756, when he purchased 200 acres of land from the Earl of Granville and the deed was witnessed by Wm. Churton. In the Caswell Co. land grants, we find where Isaac was granted 202 acres of land on a ridge between the waters of County Line Creek and Jordon Creek. He sold this same land to his brother, John, 13 March 1759, and the sale was witnessed by James Watson. On the 10th of Nov. 1761, he purchased 280 acres of land from Robert Cate, Sr. and the deed was witnessed by Robert Cate, Jr. A purchase of 115 acres on the Northeast side of Haw River below Collins Creek is recorded 30 July 1760 in Caswell Co. land records and 13 Aug. 1765 in Orange Co., as a purchase from the Earl of Granville.

    On the 26th of April 1768, he sold 300 acres to Henry Pickett Jr. and the deed was witnessed by Thomas Cate. In the Minutes of the Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions of Orange Co. in the Province of No. Carolina, Court of Aug. 1764 at Childsburg which was then the name of the county seat, changed to Hillsboro in 1766, Isaac was appointed to a Grand Jury that was called and sworn. In the same Court, Isaac and other neighbors were appointed to a Road Jury to lay out a road to Tinnigs Mill, thense to Crow's Ford, thense to Cape Fare Road and to make a report to next Court.

    A church, Wolf Island Primitive Baptist Church, was formed by Isaac Cantrell and he was pastor of the Church for over twenty years. The Rockingham County Court Minutes indicate that the Church was locally known as "Cantrell's Meeting House" as early as 1785 and as late as 1807. It is noted that the first known pastors of Wolf Island Church owned and lived on the same farm. The land was first owned by Isaac Cantrell who sold the property to Clement Whittemore in 1798. In 1803 Whittemore sold the land to Thomas Moore, who deeded part of the farm to his son-in-law Robert Shreve in 1831. Robert Shreve was a step-son of Robert Cantrell, grandson of Isaac Cantrell. There are many purchases, sales and witnesses of deeds by Isaac Cantrell until he migrated to the old 96th District of SC.

    Isaac Cantrell Estate Papers--File 736, Spartanburg County, S.C. & Court of Common Pleas, Judgement Roll #302

    According to Annette Pirkle Starr, Isaac Cantrell died in Spartanburg SC and left a will dated Aug.23, 1805. She also stated that he had (at least rwp) two wives, Talitha CLOUD and Mary LINDER. Mary is shown as the widow in the following documents. John Pirtle, George Purtle, Sarah Pirtle, and Isaac Pirtle- "grandson of the said Isaac Cantrell" attended the proceedings. It's likely that John Pirtle is John Pirkle of Rockingham Co. NC, George - John's son. Sarah Pirtle is probably John's daughter-in-law, Sarah Cantrell Pirkle, wife of William Sr., in attendance with her son, Isaac K. Isaac Cantrell was born about 1733 according to Lawrence Bankston's testimony ,"He was about 72 years old."

    Isaac Cantrell Estate Papers--File 736, Spartanburg County, S.C. 17th February of 1806.

    Court of Ordinary met at Spartanburg Court House to try the protest of Peter Cantrell of Isaac Cantrell will as requested--the same to be proven in due form of Law.

    1. James Ezell and John Pirtle desposed that they signed the will of Isaac Cantrell at the testators request in his presence. They did not see him sign the Will nor did they sign at the same time.


    2. Lawrence Bankston He knoweth the testator about 50 years, The dec’d had a ver bad pain in his head & he the dec’d told him he thought it made him dull. He was about 72 years old. He done little by business but trusted to his wife or generally asked his wife, when a person came to settle, if it was not so and so.


    3. Isaac Young deposeth he was not in his riight senses in regard to the Church, He never agreed to anything to as to stand to it.



    4. Esq._____Turner

    He knew him for 10 years and did not think he was in proper senses. He only knew him in the Church and thought him childish in that respect and that it was common talk in the neighborhood that he was
    in his dotage, that he lay on a sick bed 2 years ond one month before he died.

    5. Capt. J. Turner

    deposeth he very often saw him and thought he was possessed of as strong a mind as the nature of his infirmanent and age would admit. The dec’d asked him to be Executor and he refused because
    the children were not all equal.

    6. John Pirtle,

    cross examined deposeth that about 14 years ago he thought was out of his senses but at the time he signed the will he was in his proper senses.

    7. James Ezell,

    cross examined says he was in his proper mind when he signed as a witness

    8. Rev. John Bankston

    He had known the dec’d from a boy. He Drew the Will contested. He signed his name as a witness and was named an Executor.. He requested the deceased to take his name out as an Executor. That he did believe that he was of disposing mind and memory, at least it was so to the last he knew and he thinks this to be same.

    9. William Garrot

    Deposeth he the dec’d was of a right mind and could do his business. That he was an industrious man, never kept an overseer and he thinks he directed his farm and he thinks he was in his proper mind. Some years ago he did not seem submissive to the church and he thought he might not be right.

    (Conclusion of protest Inquiry)

    Decided:

    That the Will as far as respects the personal property is valid and sufficiently proved. But it is not sufficient to convey the landed property.

    Religion:
    Primitive Baptists, are also known as Hard Shell Baptists, Anti-Mission Baptists, or Old School Baptists. The adjective, "Primitive", in the name has the sense of "original".

    While living in New Castle County, Joseph's son, Isaac Cantrell, became associated with the Welsh Tract Baptist Church located at the foot of Iron Hill, in Pencader Hundred. It is the oldest Primitive Baptist church in America, and Isaac was probably licensed to preach by this group. As the Church was composed of Welsh People, the preaching for about one hundred years was in the Welsh language. Isaac’s mother, Catharina, was more than likely of Swedish parentage, but we know for certain that his grandmother, Dorothy Jones, was born in Wales. The Welsh language is not just a dialect of English; it is a language with an older pedigree, and a distinct one. Isaac Cantrell would have to have been fluent in the Welsh language to have been a member of this church in the 1700s.

    Following information from notes compiled through the CantrellCousin Project.......... First, NOTES from Warren G. Cantrell ..........

    "One of Isaac's descendants stated in 1928 that Isaac married first, Talitha Cloud, and that she was a granddaughter of William Cloud, of County of Wilts, England, who bought 500 acres of land from William Penn, came over in 1682, landed at Philadelphia, and after tarrying awhile in or near that city went far into the woods, settling at length, in what is now the town of Concord, in Delaware County, PA. His house was just across the state line from New Castle Co. As the eldest child of Isaac was born in 1751, we can assume that the marriage was about 1750 and it would indicate that if Talitha was a Cloud, then her parents had also lived in the big valley of VA.
    We know that Isaac became an ordained Minister of the Baptist Church. There is no doubt that the last 60 years of Isaac and John Cantrell's lives, they devoted much of their energy to God's work and they became part of God's design for America. Hundreds of descendants have followed in their footsteps."

    Isaac is first located in the county records of Old Orange Co., NC 14 Dec. 1756, when he purchased 200 acres of land from the Earl of Granville and the deed was witnessed by Wm. Churton. In the Caswell Co. land grants, we find where Isaac was granted 202 acres of land on a ridge between the waters of County Line Creek and Jordon Creek. He sold this same land to his brother, John, 13 March 1759, and the sale was witnessed by James Watson. On the 10th of Nov. 1761, he purchased 280 acres of land from Robert Cate, Sr. and the deed was witnessed by Robert Cate, Jr. A purchase of 115 acres on the Northeast side of Haw River below Collins Creek is recorded 30 July 1760 in Caswell Co. land records and 13 Aug. 1765 in Orange Co., as a purchase from the Earl of Granville.

    On the 26th of April 1768, he sold 300 acres to Henry Pickett Jr. and the deed was witnessed by Thomas Cate. In the Minutes of the Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions of Orange Co. in the Province of No. Carolina, Court of Aug. 1764 at Childsburg which was then the name of the county seat, changed to Hillsboro in 1766, Isaac was appointed to a Grand Jury that was called and sworn. In the same Court, Isaac and other neighbors were appointed to a Road Jury to lay out a road to Tinnigs Mill, thense to Crow's Ford, thense to Cape Fare Road and to make a report to next Court.

    A church, Wolf Island Primitive Baptist Church, was formed by Isaac Cantrell and he was pastor of the Church for over twenty years. The Rockingham County Court Minutes indicate that the Church was locally known as "Cantrell's Meeting House" as early as 1785 and as late as 1807. It is noted that the first known pastors of Wolf Island Church owned and lived on the same farm. The land was first owned by Isaac Cantrell who sold the property to Clement Whittemore in 1798. In 1803 Whittemore sold the land to Thomas Moore, who deeded part of the farm to his son-in-law Robert Shreve in 1831. Robert Shreve was a step-son of Robert Cantrell, grandson of Isaac Cantrell. There are many purchases, sales and witnesses of deeds by Isaac Cantrell until he migrated to the old 96th District of SC.

    Isaac Cantrell Estate Papers--File 736, Spartanburg County, S.C. & Court of Common Pleas, Judgement Roll #302

    According to Annette Pirkle Starr, Isaac Cantrell died in Spartanburg SC and left a will dated Aug.23, 1805. She also stated that he had (at least rwp) two wives, Talitha CLOUD and Mary LINDER. Mary is shown as the widow in the following documents. John Pirtle, George Purtle, Sarah Pirtle, and Isaac Pirtle- "grandson of the said Isaac Cantrell" attended the proceedings. It's likely that John Pirtle is John Pirkle of Rockingham Co. NC, George - John's son. Sarah Pirtle is probably John's daughter-in-law, Sarah Cantrell Pirkle, wife of William Sr., in attendance with her son, Isaac K. Isaac Cantrell was born about 1733 according to Lawrence Bankston's testimony ,"He was about 72 years old."

    Isaac Cantrell Estate Papers--File 736, Spartanburg County, S.C. 17th February of 1806.

    Court of Ordinary met at Spartanburg Court House to try the protest of Peter Cantrell of Isaac Cantrell will as requested--the same to be proven in due form of Law.

    1. James Ezell and John Pirtle desposed that they signed the will of Isaac Cantrell at the testators request in his presence. They did not see him sign the Will nor did they sign at the same time.


    2. Lawrence Bankston He knoweth the testator about 50 years, The dec’d had a ver bad pain in his head & he the dec’d told him he thought it made him dull. He was about 72 years old. He done little by business but trusted to his wife or generally asked his wife, when a person came to settle, if it was not so and so.


    3. Isaac Young deposeth he was not in his riight senses in regard to the Church, He never agreed to anything to as to stand to it.



    4. Esq._____Turner

    He knew him for 10 years and did not think he was in proper senses. He only knew him in the Church and thought him childish in that respect and that it was common talk in the neighborhood that he was
    in his dotage, that he lay on a sick bed 2 years ond one month before he died.

    5. Capt. J. Turner

    deposeth he very often saw him and thought he was possessed of as strong a mind as the nature of his infirmanent and age would admit. The dec’d asked him to be Executor and he refused because
    the children were not all equal.

    6. John Pirtle,

    cross examined deposeth that about 14 years ago he thought was out of his senses but at the time he signed the will he was in his proper senses.

    7. James Ezell,

    cross examined says he was in his proper mind when he signed as a witness

    8. Rev. John Bankston

    He had known the dec’d from a boy. He Drew the Will contested. He signed his name as a witness and was named an Executor.. He requested the deceased to take his name out as an Executor. That he did believe that he was of disposing mind and memory, at least it was so to the last he knew and he thinks this to be same.

    9. William Garrot

    Deposeth he the dec’d was of a right mind and could do his business. That he was an industrious man, never kept an overseer and he thinks he directed his farm and he thinks he was in his proper mind. Some years ago he did not seem submissive to the church and he thought he might not be right.

    (Conclusion of protest Inquiry)

    Decided:

    That the Will as far as respects the personal property is valid and sufficiently proved. But it is not sufficient to convey the landed property.

    About Richard L Cantrill


    Richard L. Cantrill of Charles City, Virginai was born in March 1666 and died May 13, 1753. He was a member of the Church of England, and married Dorothy Jones, a Quaker from Wales, against family wishes in 1693 in Philadelphia. Richard was a friend of William Penn. He was also founder of the first brick factory in this country with his partner, Daniel Peggy. They built the first brick house in Philadelphia. -------------------- Name: Richard Cantrill 2

    Sex: M

    Birth: 13 MAY 1660 in Derbyshire County, England

    Death: 31 MAY 1753 in Philadelphia, PA

    Note:

    Richard's shire of birth was established from a petition that he submitted to John Blackwell, Esq., governor of the Province of Pennsylvania, in July of July of 1689 stating that his nephew, Joseph Cantril had drowned in the Schuykull River, 10 May 1689, and that Joseph had older and younger brother's in Derbyshire, England. He posted a bond of one hundred pounds.

    This document is on file at the register of Wills, City Hall Philadelphia. Pa. Admin. book A page 66, file no. 54.

    It is known from the tax records of Derbyshire that there were several Cantril (Cantrell) family's living in the area at the time of Richards birth. In 1986 a researcher found one Richard Cantril's Baptismal record in Derbyshire, England with the parents listed as Richard and Alice Cantril. This Richard was born on May 13, 1666 in the Parish of Bakewell. In the nearby Parish of Ashover there is another record of a Joseph Cantril's christening, recorded as 23 Dec, 1666. He was the son of William and Elizabeth Cantril. Last there is a family listed by the name of Richard and Mary Cantril in Bakewell Parish in 1694 and 97. Any one of these could be our set of missing parents.

    According to land records and family lore Richard was thought to be a Brick Mason and possibly operated a brickyard in PA. No record has been found at this time of either a Richard or Joseph Cantril's immigration in the 1680s. It is said by some that he erected the first brick house in the city of Pa. but no record has been found to establish this fact. It is known that the house belong to one Robert Turner and was built on the SW corner of Front and Mulberry (arch) street. From a letter written by Mr.Turner to William Penn dated August 3, 1685, " And since I built my brick house the foundation of which was laid ar they going..."

    The next record of Richard and Dorothy is in the 1703 Delaware court records found among the grand jury presentments.

    " A nursery of de botch ye inhabitants and youth of this city.. to ye grief of and disturbance of peaceful minds and propagating ye throne of wickedness amongst us."

    From a will and burial records four children can be verified as Richards. There is a Jane ??? and Mary Price mentioned in the will who might also be children.

RICHARD1 Cantrell, (RichardB), b abt 1666 Bakewell Parish, Derbyshire, England d bef 31 May 1753 Pennsylvania. m abt 1693 Dorothy Jones b ca 1672 Flint or Denbigh, Wales dau of Ellis Jones and Jane ____. Richard's baptism was on 13 May 1666 in Bakewell Parish, Derbyshire, England.

    Bakewell Parish was a brickmaking area, and very likely Richard grew up in the brickmakings trade. He was a brickmaker in Philadelphia after he moved to Pennsylvania.

    He probably left England around 1687, sometime after he reached the age of 21.

    Quite possibly he came in the company of his nephew Joseph Cantrell, who was about his age. Joseph drowned in the Schuykill River at Philadelphia on 10 May 1689. Richard Cantrell, his uncle and nearest of kin in Pennsylvania, was appointed administrator of Joseph's estate. Richard's occupation of brickmaker was well suited to Philadelphia, where almost every building was made of brick. The city was planned, laid out in a logical pattern, and was well regulated from its beginning. Pennsylvania Archives, Vol XIX, 6 July 1692, shows that Richard Cantrell was granted a request for a warrant for a lot of 30 feet on Third Street near the Buyring Ground. Probably this same lot was sold the next year.

    Original Records, Deed Book D, 53, p 50, records that on 13 May 1693, Richard Cantrell sold to Thomas Hall, 30 by 190 feet at Third and Market Streets. Richard is thought to have married about 1693, and a few years later he apparently settled into what became his permanent home.

    Patent Book A, Vo. II, p 344 contains a lease made on 5 May 1702, by the Governor of Pennsyvania for a lease of 21 years on more than three acres between Fifth and Sixth Street "to Richard Cantrill, Brickmaker," the rent to be 40 shillings per year. Certain requirements were made: "Said Richard Cantrill shall build, erect, and set up a substantial brick house one story and a half in height and in breadth eighteen feet and in length thrirty-six feet....said Richard Cantrill sshall make an orchard upon some part of the hereby granted land, with at least eighty good bearing apple trees planted thereon, and shall also well and sufficiently fence and enclose the said demised land." No disposition of the estate of Richard has been found in the records, and dates of death for hima and his wife are uncertain.

    Apparently he had died by 31 May 1753, when the Pennsylvania Archives mention Richard Cantrill's estate. Richard married about 1693 Dorothy Jones. Dorothy was born aborn in 1672 in Wales and came to Pennsylvania with her parents in the ship "Submission" in 1682. She was the third of four children of Ellis and Jane Jones, who were Quakers and had come to America to escape religious persecution. Since Richard Cantrell was not a Quaker, he and Dorothy were married "out of meeting", as the Quaker term goes.

    Their apparent first child died, and the Race Street meeting house records list under Burial os Those Not Friends, "Mary, 1-6, 1695, parents Richard and Dorothy Cantrill." Dorothy Jones Cantrell is said to have gone so far from her Quaker upbringing that she attended a masquerade ball in Philadelphia, and she was apparently fond of social events. Dorothy and Richard Cantrell, as city dwellers, had what was probably an easier life than many of their descendants would have when they moved to the frontier communities of the Carolinas and Tennessee.

    As shown by the will of Dorothy's mother, Jane Jones, Richard and Dorothy Jones Cantrell had four known children: + 2.

    i. Mary2 Cantrell b abt 1694 burial 6 Jan 1695 Race Street Meeting House, Philadelphia, PA. + 3.

    iii. Zebulon2 Cantrell b abt 1697 Philadelphia, PA, and appears on the tax list in Chester Co., Pennsylvania, in 1718. He was a cordwainer, or shoemake, by occupation. Zebulon moved later into the Welsh Tract district in New Castle County (now Delaware). There he was a witness to a will in 1758. In 1763 he bought 200 acres of land there. Family tradition says that he and his son Joseph moved to Botetourt Co., Virginia, befor the Revolutionary War. + 5.

    I have searched this list extensively, and other places as well, and after sifting through everything, I have come up with the following as the most likely information regarding Richard and his family. I am looking for input as to error and also as to filling in missing pieces.

    Richard Cantrill, most likely born 1660 in Derbyshire, England. (Possibly 1666, but less likely.) Died 31 May 1753 in Philadelphia.

    Married 5 Mar 1693 in Philadelphia to Dorothy Jane Jones. She was born 1672 in Denbigh, Flint, Wales, arriving in Philadelphia in 1682 on the ship Submission with her family. She was 10 years old at the time. She died 30 Aug 1755 in Philadelphia.

    They had five children: (I know there are other numbers listed, but these seem most likely. I am willing to consider other info if we can find some kind of documentary support.)

    1- Mary born 1694 in Philadelphia. She died 1 Jun 1695 (some say Jan 6, but I feel better about the June date). I would love to know what caused her death.

    2 - Joseph born 1695 in Philadelphia. He died probably sometime after 1753 in Orange County, North Carolina.

    3 - Mary, born about 1696 in Philadelphia. She is the one who is most questioned. However, based on the fact that a child was often named after a child that had died, and the fact that the mother of Dorothy named a Mary Price in her will, I have chosen to side with those who think this is probably their child. I could really use some documents on this one.

    4 - Zebulon, born 1697 in Philadelphia.

    5 - Dorothy, born 1699, in Philadelphia.

    I do not have death dates and those would really be helpful. In addition, I have no information as to spouses of these children, other than Joseph, who is my husband's direct line.

    There seem to be land records listing Richard in 1692, 1693, 1701, 1702 and again in either 1701 or 1702 when he leased the 3 acres. Other than the mask party in 1703 which caused such a scandal, I have not found any more references to them. Does anyone have more?

    I don't want to get into opinions here, but would really like help in trying to find the truth. So many of you have so much info that I am hoping you can help fill in the missing parts.

    Someone once told me that genealogy could be about skeletons (just the names, dates and places) or the skeletons could be fleshed out into real people. That is what I am trying to do. I want to know who these people really were and how they lived.

    Anyway, thanks for any help.

    Richard L. Cantrill of Charles City, Virginai was born in March 1666 and died May 13, 1753. He was a member of the Church of England, and married Dorothy Jones, a Quaker from Wales, against family wishes in 1693 in Philadelphia. Richard was a friend of William Penn. He was also founder of the first brick factory in this country with his partner, Daniel Pegg. [Editor's Note - Daniel was his brother-in-law.]They built the first brick house in Philadelphia. -------------------- Name: Richard Cantrill 2

    No disposition of the estate of Richard has been found in the records, and dates of death for hima and his wife are uncertain. Apparently he had died by 31 May 1753, when the Pennsylvania Archives mention Richard Cantrill's estate.

    Richard married about 1693 Dorothy Jones. Dorothy was born aborn in 1672 in Wales and came to Pennsylvania with her parents in the ship "Submission" in 1682.

    She was the third of four children of Ellis and Jane Jones, who were Quakers and had come to America to escape religious persecution. Since Richard Cantrell was not a Quaker, he and Dorothy were married "out of meeting", as the Quaker term goes.

Dorothy and Richard Cantrell, as city dwellers, had what was probably an easier life than many of their descendants would have when they moved to the frontier communities of the Carolinas and Tennessee. As shown by the will of Dorothy's mother, Jane Jones, Richard and Dorothy Jones Cantrell had four known children:

    + 2. i. Mary2 Cantrell b abt 1694 burial 6 Jan 1695 Race Street Meeting House, Philadelphia, PA.

Zebulon moved later into the Welsh Tract district in New Castle County (now Delaware). There he was a witness to a will in1758. In 1763 he bought 200 acres of land there. Family tradition says that he and his son Joseph moved to Botetourt Co., Virginia, before the Revolutionary War.
    + 5. iv. Dorothy2 Cantrell b abt 1710, was living and unmarried when her grandmother Jane Jones made her will in 1730. No further information..

    Birth: 13 MAY 1660 in Derbyshire County, England
    Death: 31 MAY 1753 in Philadelphia, PA

    Note:

    Richard's shire of birth was established from a petition that he submitted to John Blackwell, Esq., governor of the Province of Pennsylvania, in July of July of 1689 stating that his nephew, Joseph Cantril had drowned in the Schuykull River, 10 May 1689, and that Joseph had older and younger brother's in Derbyshire, England. He posted a bond of one hundred pounds.

    This document is on file at the register of Wills, City Hall Philadelphia. Pa. Admin. book A page 66, file no. 54.

    It is known from the tax records of Derbyshire that there were several Cantril (Cantrell) family's living in the area at the time of Richards birth. In 1986 a researcher found one Richard Cantril's Baptismal record in Derbyshire, England with the parents listed as Richard and Alice Cantril. This Richard was born on May 13, 1666 in the Parish of Bakewell. In the nearby Parish of Ashover there is another record of a Joseph Cantril's christening, recorded as 23 Dec, 1666. He was the son of William and Elizabeth Cantril. Last there is a family listed by the name of Richard and Mary Cantril in Bakewell Parish in 1694 and 97. Any one of these could be our set of missing parents.

    According to land records and family lore Richard was thought to be a Brick Mason and possibly operated a brickyard in PA. No record has been found at this time of either a Richard or Joseph Cantril's immigration in the 1680s. It is said by some that he erected the first brick house in the city of Pa. but no record has been found to establish this fact. It is known that the house belong to one Robert Turner and was built on the SW corner of Front and Mulberry (arch) street. From a letter written by Mr.Turner to William Penn dated August 3, 1685, " And since I built my brick house the foundation of which was laid ar they going..."

    The next record of Richard and Dorothy is in the 1703 Delaware court records found among the grand jury presentments.

John Simes who gave the masquerade party was presented for keeping a disorderly house, " A nursery of de botch ye inhabitants and youth of this city.. to ye grief of and disturbance of peaceful minds and propagating ye throne of wickedness amongst us."

    From a will and burial records four children can be verified as Richards. There is a Jane ??? and Mary Price mentioned in the will who might also be children.

    (First, a note about William Penn -- for historical reference to the life and times of our ancestor, William Cloud.)

    +++++++++++++++

    William Penn (1644-1718) was born to privilege, being the son of Admiral Sir William Penn. He converted to Quakerism in his twenties and soon envisioned a society that was godly, virtuous and exemplary for all of humanity. He married in 1672 and, in 1677, traveled to Holland. That year he wrote the "Concessions and Agreements" charter for a group of Quaker colonists who were settling in the newly acquired New Jersey. Among its provisions were the right to trial by jury, the freedom from arbitrary imprisonment for debt, and edict against capital punishment. Penn also strongly argued for religious freedom, writing "no Men. . . hath Power or authority to rule over Men's Consciences in Religious matters." This document has been called "the first clear statement in American history of the supremacy of the fundamental law (universal rights) over any statutes that might be enacted"
    All the while, he had been planning and working for his utopian society and by 1681 he had been granted 45,000 acres of land in the New World. On March 4, 1681 he obtained the charter for Pennsylvania, and in August 1682 he gained the rights to Delaware from his friend James, the Duke of York. He helped finance his venture by selling tracts of land, calling it a "holy experiment" which he predicted would become "the seed of a nation." He imagined a "free ... sober and industrious people" living by their own laws. In 1682 he sought to delineate these laws in the First Frame of government. Penn first arrived at his new colony in the fall of 1682. It was at this time that he supposedly signed his famous treaty with the Delaware (Leni Lenape) at Shackamaxon. The first treaty document in existence is dated July 15, 1682 in which Penn obtained land from Idquahon and several other Leni Lenape leaders. In the next year Penn brokered at least eight additional land transactions with the Delaware. He returned to England in 1684 and didn't return to Pennsylvania until 1699.

    +++++++++++++++

    William Cloud was born in 1621 in Devizes, county Wiltshire, England. County Wiltshire is well known for Stonehenge, though that relic is predated by the ancient circles at Avebury and also by the tomb known as the West Kennet Long Barrow, which was built over 5000 years ago. Ancient Wiltshire was also the scene of important battles between the Celts and Saxons, and again later between the Saxons and Danes, culminating in Alfred's final victory at Edington, Wilts., in 878 AD. Its chalk hills lack adequate water and are inhospitable to farming and so it became a region known for its textiles, with Calne having many woolen mills. It was in Calne, in the 1770's, that Dr. Joseph Priestley discovered the element oxygen. Devizes was a "newer" town than the others in Wiltshire, having been founded after the Norman conquest.

    William Cloud's purchase of land from William Penn is recorded on October 7, 1682. That land is in what became Concord township, Chester county, Pennsylvania. Though he was advanced in age at the time of his purchase, being 61 years old at the time, he soon gathered his family and left upon the arduous voyage to the New World. Nothing is known as to why he chose to leave Wiltshire, and little is known about the family's political or religious beliefs, though they were apparently Quaker or Friends. The loading of the "Unicorn" was mentioned in the London Gazette of June 22, 1682 under a Bristol dateline of June 17th as ship "now ready to take in Goods and Passengers and to sail the next month [for] Pensilvania (sic) and New-Jersey" those interested in taking passage were directed to apply to Thomas Goldney or John Dudlestone in High Street or to the Master. The London Impartial Mercury noted that in Bristol a ship was "fitting out for Pensylvania on board which 40 Quakers together with their families will imbarq (sic)." It further reported that "tis said that they carry over with them 300 pound-worth of half-pence, and farthings which in that Collony (sic) go current for twice their value and 'tis added that some discontented Presbyterians will Likewise accompany them." Twelve days latter the same paper reported that the ship "full graught (sic) with quakers bound for Pennsylvania is ready to sail."

    William Cloud imported a number of items for trading purposes and brought with him an indentured servant, Jacob Willis. [25 August] William Cloude: 4 cwt. wrought iron; 3 pieces qty. 120 yds.

    Upon arriving in America, he lived on his land in Concord township and became a member of the Chichester Friends Meeting. "William Cloud (Clowde), Yeoman, from Seene, Wiltshire, was a First Purchaser of 500 Acres, (9 Mo.1681) which were laid out on the south side of Naamans's Creek, Chester County. While his lot in Philadelphia in right of his being an F.P. was warranted and surveyed in 1683. In 1691 Wm. Cloud conveyed 200 acres to his sons Joseph and John Cloud; three years later Joseph conveyed his rights to "his brother John Cloud." In the "Blackwell quitrent rolls" compiled by Receiver General and former Deputy Governor John Blackwell from December 1689-March 1689/90. William Cloud is listed as having 250 taxable acres in Chester County as well as 49 feet of frontage on lot in Philadelphia for which he paid a quitrent of 2s.

    The will of William Cloud of Concord was proved in 1702. In it he mentions his sons, William, Jeremiah, Joseph, John and Robert. Of these, Joseph came over as a servant to John Bezer, and received his 50 acres of land in Caln township, where he was living in 1709. (Caln township is still in existence and is also in Chester county, Pennsylvania.) John, William and Jeremiah resided on Naaman's Creek for some time. William Jr. was living in Caln in 1715, and died there in 1720. His eldest son, Joseph, was there in 1719, but probably at Pextang after this (Paxtan Twp. is now in Dauphine county, near Harrisburg, it was part of Lancaster Co. when it was formed in 1729 and then became Dauphine Co. when it was formed).

    Joseph Sr. married Mary Moore, widow of Richard, and mother of Thomas and John Moore. He died in1739.

    His will reads:

    "I, William Cloud of Concord Sem, in county of Chester, being aged and well stricken in years, do give unto my son WILLIAM CLOUD 100 acres of my purch. land; to my son JEREMIAH CLOUD 200 acres of my purchased land, to sons, JOSEPH, JOHN and ROBERT CLOUD one English shilling if demanded; to my grand daughter, HANNAH CLOUD, daughter of JEREMIAH CLOUD, all the rest of my estate, both real and personal, she to be Executrix. Son Jeremiah to be Overseer." Wits: Robert Pyle, Ann Pyle, Sadie Pyle (Register of Wills, Phila).

    One of Isaac Cantrell's descendants stated in 1928 that Isaac first married Talitha Cloud and that she was the granddaughter of William Cloud, of Wilts County England, who bought 500 acres of land from William Penn, came over in 1682, landed at Philadelphia, and after tarrying awhile in or near Philly he went far into the woods, settling at length, in what is now the town of Concord, in Delaware Co PA. His house just across the state line from New Castle Co.

    The Cloud Family - Thomas Maxwell Potts --

    William Cloud of Calne, Wilshire, England was probably born at least as early as 1630. (Handwritten note to the manuscript gives date of birth as August 7, 1621, son of Robert Cloud and Joan Norys.) He was a member of the Religious Society of Friends. The earliest mention of him that has been noticed is found in Bese's Suffering of Friends, Vol II, Chapter II, page 89,, wherein it is stated that William Cloud with others were at a meeting at Calne, held May 16, 1660, that the meeting "was broken up by a party of Soldiers, who came with Swords drawn, and Pistols cockt, and violently haled out those that were met, and when asked for their Warrant, shewd their Swords, Saying 'This is our Warrent.'"

    On 12 mo. 7, 1680, he attended a monthly meeting of Friends, held at Marlborough, as a representative from Calne Meeting; but in 1682 he seems to have come under the censure of Friends for "disorderly walking contrary to the truth". This matters was continued at the next meeting 7 mo. 4, 1682, and no mention of the matter is made in further records.

    On September 8 & 9, 1681, William Penn granted to William Cloud, 500 acres of land to be laid out in Pennsylvania. William Cloud and his family came to Pennsylvania in the latter part of 1682. This land was laid and surveryed to the sothward of Naamans Creek, but it was afterward discovered to be in New Castle County, Delware. On July 20, 1713, the same was confirmed unto his heirs by a new patent.

    It seems that William Cloud did not himself settle upon this tract of land, but lived in Concord Tonwship, Chester County, PA.

    William Cloud, Sr., seems to have been a member of the Chichester Friends Meeting. Though he does not sem to have taken an active part in the meeting, he was a contributor toward the erection of the meeting house and the cost the graveyard about 1685.

    Deed (About 1691) William Cloud, Sr of county of Chester to 2 of his sons, John Cloud and Joseph Cloud. William Cloud for 8 pounds in 2 payments the first 4 pounds paid 1 December 1690 anda the second four pounds to be paid on 25 Mach 1691 and for care lodging for his natural life grants to John Cloud and Jospeh Cloud a tract bounded by Naamans Creek containing 200 acres being a tract granted to William Cloud Sr. on 9 September 1681 by William Penn. Signed William Cloud, Sr. Delivered in the presence of John Childs, William Cloud, Francis Chadsey & Jacob Chandler. (Chester County Land Records A1:B124)

    William Cloud, Sr., died about 1702. The Will of William Cloud of Concord and County of Chester, "beign aged and well stricken in years," was made 7 mo. 20, 1700, and was proven 25, 1702. It is recorded in the Registers Office at Philadelphia in Will-Book B, page 244. It is however, imperfectly recorded. A reference to the original will on file shows the following bequests:

    Impris, makes void all former wills.

    2ndly, gives to son William, 100 acres of purchased land.
    3rdly, to son Jeremia, 200 acres of purchased land.
    4thly, to sons Joseph, John, and Robert, each one shilling.
    5thly, I give to my daughter Susannah Lukens liveing in old ingland one ingllish shillling or ye vallue thereof in Coyen Corent, if demanded.
    Lastly, to grand-daughter Hannah Cloud, daughter of Jeremiah, the residue and names her as executrix. His son Jeremia to be overseer in trust.

    The witnesses were Robert Pyle, Anne Pyle, and Sarah Pyle. The inventory was made October 17, 1702, by John Buckley and Wa: Marten.

    Hanover County, VA 1706 - 1786 Vestry Book of St. Paul's Parish File submitted for use in the USGenWeb Archives by: Pat C. John

    This volume was the sixth in the series of parish books started in 1931. Churchill Gibson Chamberlayne, B.A., B.D., M.A., Ph.D., LL.D., the editor of four previous volumes in the series, agreed to transcribe and edit the volume. Dr. Chamberlayne was headmaster of St. Christopher's School near Richmond, and a recognized authority on the history of the Protestant Episcopal Church in Virginia. His efforts on four of the five previous volumes in the series, plus three volumes published at his own expense, made him a highly qualified transcriber and editor of early parish records. He undertook the work as a labor of love without remuneration.

    Soon after the volume had gone to press in January 1939, Dr. Chamberlayne died on April 3, 1939. Under the general direction of Mr. Wilmer L., Hall, State Librarian, members of the library staff assisted in completing the work. Mr. William J. Van Schreeven, then Head Archivist and later State Archivist edited Dr. Chamberlayne's rough draft of an introduction and compiled the appendix. The proof reading was done by Mrs. Marjorie C. Gough and the index was prepared by Miss Virginia E. Jones. St. Paul's Vestry Book and four other vestry books published in the series relate to the contiguous area in which the early local records have been either lost or destroyed. This volume is distinctive because it was regularly used to enter processioning orders and returns as well as the recording of minutes of vestry meetings. Thus it is a comprehensive record of land owners in the parish. Since records of Hanover County were destroyed during the evacuation fire in Richmond in 1865, the entries in the vestry book are the only existing record of land ownership. Louis H. Manarin State Archivist Richmond, October 27, 1972 Introduction (p. xi) The manuscript volume hereinafter reproduced in print embodies the earliest consecutive records of St. Paul's Parish, Hanover County Virginia, known to be in existence.

    It covers, with more or less completeness, the period from January, 1706 to August 1786. The history of the volume from the day the last entry in it was written until 1907, when the writer examined it along with other parish records at the Theological Seminary at Alexandria, is unknown to the editor. That Bishop Meade was unaware of its existence when writing his "Old Churches, Ministers and Families of Virginia" (first published in book form in 1857) is evident to those who have read his chapter on the "Parishes in Hanover County - No. 1." At some date unknown to the editor the volume was deposited by someone, whose identity the editor has been unable to establish, in the library of the Protestant Episcopal Theological Seminary in Virginia, at Alexandria. With the other parish record books on deposit there, it was in 1931 transferred for safe-keeping to the Virginia State Library in Richmond, and is preserved in the Archives Division of the library. It is the property of the Protestant Episcopal Church in Virginia. It has not hitherto been published…. (p. xii) St. Paul's Parish was established in 1704 by act of the General Assembly convening on April 20 of that year. Under the terms of the Act the parish was to come into being on June 1; it may fairly be assumed therefore that the vestry records began with the minutes of a vestry meeting held within a month or two of that date, and it is possible that they began with a transcript of the proceedings of the meeting of the "ffreeholders and Housekeepers of the Parish" which was scheduled under the Act to convene on the "second thirsday in June next and there choose twelve of the most able and discreet persons of the parish to be Vestrymen for their said parish…"

    But whatever may have been the date of the first entry in the original vestry book, the first complete vestry minutes in the extant book are those for the meeting held on July 10, 1706 - or two years subsequent to the establishment of the parish. Another circumstance of interest, and indeed of importance, in connection with this old manuscript volume, raising as it does some doubt as to the absolute validity of the record up to the year 1754, is the fact that the volume is for the first two hundred and forty- one pages merely a transcript, of an older and long since disappeared, manuscript volume, which was ordered to be made ( p. xiii) in the year 1754. Furthermore it is not certain that the volume transcribed in 1754, was the original record prior to the year 1742, for under the date Oct. 12, 1742, there occurs the item "To Do, for Transcribing the Register Book from ye; year 1704, to this p'sent time. 1000," the matter hinging entirely upon the meaning of the term "Register Book." If this term means here vestry book, then there were two transcripts made (one in 1742, the other in 1754) and the present manuscript is from 1742 to 1754 a copy of the original record, while for the entries prior to 1742 it is only a copy of a copy of the original. On the other hand, if the term "Register Book" here refers to the record kept of births, baptisms, and deaths in the parish, then the present manuscript vestry book is for the entire period prior to 1754 a transcript of the original record. The Extent of the Parish In order to determine the extent of St. Paul's Parish in 1704, the year of its establishment, it is necessary first to know the boundaries of St. Peter's Parish, from which St. Paul's was cut off. In 1704 St Peter's Parish was bounded on the north-east by the Pamunkey River up to the fork and from (p.xiv) that point on by the north fork (North Anna River); on the south-east by the line dividing it from Blisland (or Blissland) Parish and by the north-west boundary of Wilmington Parish, if there ever was any definitely fixed north-west boundary line of that parish; on the south-west by the ridge between the Pamunkey and the Chickahominy rivers (the dividing line between the parishes of St. Peter's and Wilmington) up to the north-west extent of Wilmington Parish, and then by the Chickahominy River. To the north-west the parish extended theoretically indefinitely; practically it extended to the farthest point of settlement. From 1704, then, until St. Martin's Parish was in turn cut off from it, St. Paul's Parish extended indefinitely north-west from the north-west boundary of St. Peter's Parish between the Pamunkey (in its upper reaches the North Anna) and the Chickahominy. In 1726 when St. Martin's Parish was cut off from St Pauls, the new parish included all that part of St. Paul's Parish lying in the fork of the Pamunkey (made by the junction of the North Anna and the South Anna rivers) together with all that part of the original parish lying north-west of Stone Horse Creek, which flowed north-east into the South Anna. In 1923, that part of St. Paul's Parish lying between Stone Horse Creek and a line running parallel to the Richmond, Fredericksburg and Potomac Railroad and two and a half miles to the east of it was by action of the Episcopal Diocesan Council formed into a new parish to which was given the name Ashland. The St. Paul's of this vestry book, however, which originally extended from Matadequin Creek on the east indefinitely to the west, after 1726 extended west as far as the fork of the Pamunkey and as far as Stone Horse Creek for the territory south of the South Anna. Processioning (p.xv) Each one of the parish vestry books still in existence has perhaps something of peculiar interest attaching to it. The thing of most outstanding interest in connection with the vestry book of St. Paul's Parish, Hanover County, is that the volume served a unique as well as a double purpose. It was the repository of two very different sets of records; i.e., the minutes of the vestry meetings and, as well, the orders for processioning and the returns made by the processioners. In view of the fact that in this old vestry book the processioning orders and processioning returns together comprise so large a part of the record as a while, it may not be out of place here to make clear what the terms "processioning" and " processioners" mean, what the practice of processioning was, and what the reason for the practice; and all the more so as even the term, "processioning" itself has become practically obsolete, and therefore meaningless, in Virginia. The first reference to processioning that the editor can find in the Virginia colonial records occurs in Hening's Statues…..

    This reference is embodied in Act LXXVIII of the session of the Grand Assembly begun March 23rd 1662, the preamble of which, giving clear the purpose of the proposed practice, is as follows: "Whereas many contentious suites are dayly incited and stirred up about the bounds of land for which noe remedy hath yett bin provided, the ffifty seaventh act prohibiting resurveighs not applying the expected remedies, for if the surveighs be just (p.xvi) yet the surveighors being for the most part careles of seeing the trees marked, or the owners never renewing them, in a small time the chopps being growne up, or the trees fallen, the bounds become as uncertaine as at first, and upon a new surveigh the least variation of a compasse alters the scituation of a whole neighborhood and deprives many persons of houses, or chards and all to their infinite losse and trouble; for prevention whereof, Bee it enacted" etc. The purpose of processioning, accordingly, was to obviate lawsuits over boundary lines, with the necessary expenses and possible injustices incident to resurveys, which were almost inevitably attendant upon law suits over disputed property lines. The wording of the Act proper was as follows: "….that within twelve months after this act, all the inhabitants of every neck and tract of land adjoining shall goe in procession and see the marked trees of every mans land in those precincts to be renewed, and the same course to be taken once every fower years, by which meanes the inconvenience of clandestine surveigh will be taken away, and the bounds wilbe soe generally known and the marks soe fresh that noe alteration can be made afterwards. And be it further enacted that the bounds by the consent of the present proprietors being once thus setled shall conclude the said proprietors, and all others clayming from or under them, from any future alterations of their bounds, be there within the said bounds more or lesse land than they pretend to: And if it shall happen any difference to be at present that cannot be by the neighbors themselves decided, Bee it further enacted that two honest and able surveyors shall in presence of the neighbour-hood lay out the land in controversie, and the bounds than laid out to be the certaine bounds, and ever after to be renewed and continue soe, but the person causing the difference to pay the charge of the survey, it tending much more to the preservation of ffriendshipp among neighbors to have a present and finall decission of their (p.xvii) differences, while men yet live that are acquainted with the ffirst surveys, and while land is yet at a low value, then it will be when time hath rooted out all knowledge to the bounds and added a greater value to the land. Be it enacted further that each county court shall appoint and order the vestrys of each parish to devide the parishes into soe many precincts as they shall think necessary for the neighbors to joyne and see each others markes renewed, and to appoint certaine dayes between Easter and Whitsunday to goe the said processions and put this act in effectuall execution, and in case the court shall omitt to make such orders and to send the same to the severall vestryes of the parishes in their counties, they shalbe fined ten thousand pounds of tobacco, and the vestry failing in ordering the precincts and the persons to goe together shall be fined twelve hundred pounds of tobacco and the persons fayling to goe upon the day appointed, or to renew his marke accordingly shall for his neglect be fined three hundred and fifty pounds of tobacco." The practice of processioning, as inaugurated under the above Act of the session of 1662 was later amplified and altered in certain important details by subsequent legislation, as follows: 1. In 1673 provision was made for the processioning of lands of orphans 2. In 1691 the time of year for processioning was changed to the six months between September 30 and March 31st. 3. In 1705 it was directed (1) that the court orders for processioning should go out between June 1 and September 1 of every fourth year, beginning with the year 1708; (2) that the vestries were each to appoint "at least two intelligent honest freeholders of every precinct, to see such processioning performed, and take and return to the vestry an account [in writing] of every persons land, they shall proscession, and of the persons present at the same, and of what lands in their precincts, (p.xviii) they shall fail to proscession, and of the particular reasons of such failure"; (3) that the vestries were to see to it that the written returns of the processioners were "registered in particular books to be kept for that purpose by the clerk of the vestry," the registers to be examined by the churchwardens for the purpose of seeing that the returns made by the processioners had been copied fully and exactly; (4) that specified fines should be the penalties for failure on the part of county and parish officials, and the other persons affected by the act, to perform their respective duties under the act; and (5) that bounds three times processioned should be considered settled and determined forever. 4. In 1710 the processioning legislation of 1705 was ineffect re-enacted, the one change of importance being the requirement that from thenceforth the court orders for processioning should go out every fourth year beginning with the year 1711; and the one material addition being a provision for the processioning under special court orders of lands whose owners had refused to have them processioned in ordinary and regular course. 5. In 1748 the processioning law of 1710 was re-enacted without any important change by way of addition, omission or substitution. C.G.Chamberlayne,

    In extracting this data on the Surname Harris from the above referenced book, there are two things I want to tell you. I will indicate the book page first and in parenthesis, I will indicate the page in the actual vestry records. When given, I will also show the date. I will extract data only, making no assumptions. You will also note that there are entries in the vestry minutes that have the abbreviations C: and C:C. From what I can determine, the C:C stands for Contra: Credit and the C: stands for Credit.

    Surname: Byars

    Recorded in a number of modern spelling forms including Byars, Byers, Byre, Byres, Bier, Biers, and Buyers, this is an English topographical or occupational surname, and one associated with the pre 7th century Viking. It derives from the word "bi or byre", meaning the cattle barn or dairy, and is one of a group of surnames which originate from working or living on a farm. These include Bull, Heffer, Stott, and Palfrey, and all relate to the keeping of livestock, the prime agricultural function of the medieval period. Perhaps not surprisingly given the importance of the occupation, this is one of the earliest of all recorded hereditary surnames, and it is also not surprising that it was in the then cattle breeding regions of East Anglia and the West Country, where originally the surname was most prevalent. There is also a possibility that in some cases the surname may have descended from an Olde English personal name "Bye", of unproven meaning. This is suggested by the recording of Thomas filius Bye of Cambridge, in the Hundred Rolls of the year 1279. Other early examples of the name recording include John Attebey also in the same Hundred Rolls of Cambridge and John Buyres of Somerset in the Subsidy Tax rolls of 1327. The famous portrait painter of the 17th century Nicholas Byer, who died in 1681, was actually born in Norway, although possibly of English parents. The first known recording is believed to be that of Elias de la Byare of Devonshire in the year 1275. This was during the reign of King Edward 1st of England, 1272 -1307.

    JOSEPH2 CANTRELL, (Richard1),

    b abt 1695 Philadelphia, PA m Catharina _____. Joseph is named as a grandson in the will of Jane Jones, written in 1730. He apparently grew up in Philadelphia, and moved when a young man to what is now Wilmington, New Castle County, Delaware, about 20 miles down the Delaware River from Philadelphia. This area had been settled by the Swedes, including some Finns, in 1638, and they had established there the Holy Trinity Church, known in later years as "Old Swedes Church.".

    The present structure was built in 1698 and is still in use today. It was Swedish Lutheran until 1791, when the last Swedish pastor departed and jurisdiction was transferred to the Protestant Episcopal Church. Joseph married probably married about 1718, his wife was named Catharina. Susan Christie in 1908 thought that Catharina was probably a descendant of one of the old Swedish families, and I tend to agree with that conclusion. Some researchers have thought that Joseph's wife was Catherine Heath, but I have seen no record or evidence to support that idea.

    Joseph Cantrell and his wife were attending Holy Trinity (Old Swedes) Church by 1720, and three of their children were baptized there between 1720 and 1726. Joseph and his family probably lived in the Wilmington area of Delaware until the 1730's. They are said to have been in Orange Co., Virginia, in 1738, and possibly lived there until about 1750.

    At that time the proprietor of the Granville District in North Carolina was opening that area for settlement and offering good land at low prices. Many families traveled down the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia into North Carolina, and Joseph Cantrell and several of his children were apparently among those who made this journey. No will or estate settlement for Joseph Cantrell has been found in Delaware or in North Carolina, but he is thought to have died in North Carolina.

    The 1755 tax list of Orange Co., North Carolina, shows Joseph's son John Cantrell with two taxable white males. Since John's sons were under 12 years old, it seems likely that joseph Cantrell was the other male, and that he was living with his son John at that time. Joseph probably died in the 1760's, but no record has been found of his death. Joseph and Catharina are thought to have had ten or more children.

    end of comment

    From material prepared by Eddy and Glenda Harrel - Reference attributed to "Early Families of the North Carolina Counties of Rockingham and Stokes with Revolutionary Service", compiled and published by members of James Hunter Chapter, National Society, Daughter of American Revolution of Madison, North Carolina, published 1977:

    Joseph spent his early boyhood in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Joseph and Catharina lived in New Castle County, Pennsylvania on or near the site of the present city of Wilmington, Delaware, and were attendants at Holy Trinity (Old Swedes) Church before 1720. Their first three children were baptised at the old historical church, known as Old Swedes, which is one of the oldest and quaintest churches in this country.

    Joseph was probably a farmer in these lower counties of Pennsylvania, which later became part of Delaware. A published work of the wills in the county of New Castle fails to reveal a will of Joseph or Catharina. It is possible that Joseph accompanied some of the sons on the move south to North Carolina. In 1752 and 1753, son John was taxed for two white polls in Orange County, North Carolina. One may have been his father. A complete list of the children of John and Catharina has never been found. The nine children listed were compiled from family records and the court and county records of Orange County North Carolina. The sixth child (a female, name unknown) was born about 1722.

    Christina Parish was mostly situated on both sides of Christina Creek, partly on both sides of Brandywine Creek in New Castle County and in the Hundreds of New Castle, Christina and Brandywine. It stretched two Swedish miles in length, and one in breadth. The most remote families of the parish were not more than six and a half English miles distance from the church. The city of Wilmington is built on the Swedish "church land" and the charter for the town was granted on 1735. At the time Joseph Cantril went there, it was known as Christina.

    Many of the earliest records of this locality have been lost, or destroyed, and at best are very incomplete. There is evidence, however, from the scattered records in New Castle County today, that descendents of Richard Cantril lived there from before 1720 until 1797, though the majority moved south during this period.

    A published work of the wills and probates of New Castle County during the period of Joseph's residence there fails to reveal his will or probate. As he was a man in his 50s when his sons moved south to Carolina, it can be assumed that he made the move with his sons. In the tax list submitted to the Orange County Court, North Carolina for the year 1754, his son John's household listed two taxable white males. As John's sons were under 16 years of age, it can be assumed that one of these was his father, Joseph.

They were living in New Castle County, Pennsylvania, on or near the site of the present city of Wilmington, Delaware, and were attendants at Holy Trinity (Old Swedes) Church before 1720. It is probable that Catharina was a daughter of one of the Old Swedes, first settlers of this section, but we could not verify this.

He married Catherine Heath ca 1718. According to one genealogist, she was a daughter of John and Hannah Heath. So far, research has not been located to substantiate. We do know that her christian name was Catherine from the baptismal records at the Holy Trinity (Old Swedes) church at Wilmnington, Delaware. One researcher has stated that she was a great granddaughter of Thomas Heath who came to America in 1635 on the ship "SAFETY" landing in VA. and later moving north and finally settling near New Castle, PA.

    From the Holy Trinity records of 1697 to 1773, which were translated from the Swedish to English in 1890, we find that Joseph and Catherine had three children baptized there in the 1720's.

We know that son, John was in Orange County, NC.

    in 1754, when the tax list for that year was submitted by the sheriff, and that the list had two taxable white males. John's oldest son was too young to have been taxed so the other one may have been for Joseph. A complete list of the children of Joseph and Catherine has never been located. One daughter may have been Sarah, who was the wife of Lawrence Bankston. For over 60 years the Cantrell and Bankston families migrated and settled together. Lawrence Bankston stated in a court case in 1807 that he had known Isaac Cantrell for over 50 years.

    Joseph Cantrell was born about 1695 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and after reaching manhood moved to the “lower counties of Pennsylvania” that later became the state of Delaware. He married Catharina (surname unknown) about 1718, and they were living in New Castle County, Pennsylvania, near the present city of Wilmington, Delaware, and before 1720, were attendants at Holy Trinity (Old Swedes) Church. Catharina was probably the daughter of one of the original Old Swedes families who first settled on the Swedish “church land.” From the Holy Trinity records of 1697 to 1773, which were translated from Swedish to English in 1890, we find that Joseph and Catharina had three children baptized there in the 1720s. They were Hannah, John and Joseph.

    At the time Joseph Cantrell settled there, the town was known as Christina, which was mostly situated on both sides of Christina Creek, partly on both sides of Brandywine Creek in New Castle County, and in the Hundreds of New Castle, Christina and Brandywine. The most remote families of the parish were not more than six and a half miles from the church. The city of Wilmington, Delaware was built on Swedish “church land.” The charter for the town was granted in 1735.

    There aren’t any further records of Joseph or Catharina in the remaining records of Delaware, but from the records of Jefferson County, West Virginia, we know that in 1738, Joseph and his brother, Zebulon, were involved in a lawsuit in Orange County, Virginia. The libel suit brought against 54 defendants for “signing a scandalous paper reflecting on the Complaintiff” by Rev. William Williams (Presbyterian) occurred on July 27, 1738. It was filed at the Orange County, Virginia courthouse. Both Joseph and Zebulon were listed as "other defendants." The events that were described in the suit probably happened somewhere between Winchester, Virginia and what is now Martinsburg, West Virginia, which is where the Rev. Williams lived.

    While living in New Castle County, Joseph's son, Isaac Cantrell, became associated with the Welsh Tract Baptist Church located at the foot of Iron Hill, in Pencader Hundred. It is the oldest Primitive Baptist church in America, and Isaac was probably licensed to preach by this group. As the Church was composed of Welsh People, the preaching for about one hundred years was in the Welsh language. Isaac’s mother, Catharina, was more than likely of Swedish parentage, but we know for certain that his grandmother, Dorothy Jones, was born in Wales. The Welsh language is not just a dialect of English; it is a language with an older pedigree, and a distinct one. Isaac Cantrell would have to have been fluent in the Welsh language to have been a member of this church in the 1700s.

    A record of Isaac’s brother Zebulon being a witness to the will of Thomas Edmond on July 21, 1758, is among the Welsh Tract Baptist Church records, and lends further evidence that the Cantrells were early members of this church.

    About 1747, many of the Cantrells as well as allied families joined a large caravan in the movement southward. They moved along the Great Wagon Road down through the Great Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. Within view to the west of the Valley rose the Alleghenies and to the east were the Blue Ridge Mountains. From Roanoke, the Wagon Road went through the Staunton Gap and on south to the Piedmont Plateau of the Carolinas. They settled in the "Land of Eden" Granville County, North Carolina, which became Orange County in September 1752. Later, in 1785, this part of Orange County became Rockingham County.

    In the tax list submitted to the Orange County Court for the year of 1754, John Cantrell was listed as having two taxable white males. It is possible that one of the males may have been his father Joseph. Isaac received a land grant for 202 acres of land in Orange County on November 13, 1756. Isaac sold this land to his brother John on 13 Mar 1759.

    I have created this memorial in honor and memory of Joseph and his descendants at Old Swedes Church where he was a member and several of his children were baptized. He was my husband's 5th great grandfather.

    Diane,

    Please, please remove all information from your files that Catherine was a daughter of John "Snow Shoe" and Hannah Haynes Heath. That was a ruor that I started 25 years ago and have long regretted. John and hannah did not and I repeat did not have a dau. named Catherine. Futher there is not proof that Catherine was a Heath. That was a rumor that Nobel Bethel started in 1928.
    His opinion was based on the 1747 will of John Heath that named a cousin, Alice Cantrell as an heir. john and Hanah Haynes Heath never left MA or Conn.

    "It is probable that Catherine was the daughter of one of the Old Swedes, first settlers of the section. Her first three children were baptized in the Old Swedes Church. At this time the location was called Christiana. Several of Richard Cantrill's descendents lived there between 1720-1797."

    Warren G. Cantrell STRONGLY DISAGREES that Catherine is daughter of John & Hannah Haines Heath. Warren notes that there were five HEATH families in the Philadelphia area and posits, "Why would he marry a girl from MA which was so far away"...2 Sep 1995.

    It is interesting to note that her first child, a girl, was named, "Hannah" (after her mother?) and her second child, a son, named, "John" (after her father?)

    Description: Although possible, it is unlikely that Joseph C Cantrell's wife, Catherine Heath Cantrell, and mother, Dorothy Jones Cantrell, died on the same day. Suspect someone has picked up the wrong date for one or the other of these two ladies.
