    Notes:

    TERRY-GILLENTINE CONNECTION
    SueTiffany@AOL.com

    I am looking for the parents of JANE ELIZABETH TERRY (or ELIZABETH JANE TERRY) was born ca 1777 possibly in Anson Co., North Carolina. I believe her mother's name was Elizabeth LEAKE/LAKE and that Jane was named for her and that Jane went by her middle name. Jane married NICHOLAS GILLENTINE born ca 1775 in Halifax, VA. (Bible records of his and JANE'S son TERRY GILLENTINE).

    Several records show JANE near or in the same town or mention her in the same paragraph as JOSEPH TERRY and JESSE TERRY in Tennessee (The Records of Pittsylvania County), but they do not state their relationship, if any.

    JANE ELIZABETH TERRY died 1 May 1859 in McNairy Co., Tennessee.
    NICHOLAS GILLENTINE died 8 May 1834 in McNairy Co., TN. Nicholas fought in the War of 1812. His parents were WILLIAM G. GILLENTINE and MARGARET HURT. (William Albert Gillentine's Bible) JANE ELIZABETH TERRY AND NICHOLAS GILLENTINE had the following children:

    1. JOHN GILLENTINE, Squire b. 16 Nov 1797, Grainger Co., TN m. MARY"POLLY" MARTIN.
    2. TERRY GILLENTINE b. 17 Apr 1799 in Van Buren Co., TN m. SARAH "SALLY" LEWIS.
    3. ELIZABETH GILLENTINE b. 5 Dec 1800 in TN m. JESSE HASTON.
    4. MARGARET GILLENTINE b. 8 Dec 1802 in TN m. ROBERT GAMBLE.
    5. MARY "POLLY" GILLENTINE b. 21 Feb 1805 in Spencer, TN m. BARKLEY M. BALLARD.
    6. RICHARD LEAK GILLENTINE (LEAK is a family name, but I haven't been able to connect with it yet.) b. 29 Jan 1806 in White Co., TN m. SIDNEY LIANA STOVALL.
    7. MARTHA GILLENTINE b. 12 Apr 1808 m. BENJAMIN JAMES SANDLIN.
    8. JOSEPH NICHOLAS GILLENTINE b. 18 Feb 1810 in White Co. TN. m. LOUISA BRUMBELOW.
    9. JANSEE (JANE) GILLENTINE b. 22 Dec 1811 d. 8 Jan 1812.
    10. ANNA GILLENTINE b. 9 Sept 1813, TN m. WILLIAM Y. LEE.
    11. SUSANNA J. GILLENTINE b. 27 Jan 1815 m. the REVEREND JESSE EVERETT HICKMAN.
    12. RACHEL GILLENTINE b. 16 Jul 1817 m. JOHN COLEMAN.
    13. SARAH SALLY GILLENTINE b. 29 Nov 1819, White Co., TN m. WILLIAM INGRAM.
    14. WILLIAM THROCKMORTON GILLENTINE b. 29 Oct 1822 TN.

    I've searched for JANES's parents for 40 years (since I was 12 years old).
    Some researchers have "suggested" JOSEPH TERRY and JUDITH CRAWFORD,
    JAMES TERRY m. to ELIZABETH LEAK, RICHARD LEAK TERRY, and JOHN TERRY who died in White Co., TN in 1831 as parents for JANE.

    I know the family has to be one who married into the LEAKS as that is a given name for several generations that follow Jane Elizabeth TERRY. Every given name in the family of JAMES TERRY and ELIZABETH LEAKE'S family is found in JANE ELIZABETH and NICHOLAS GILLENTINE's family. If you have any information that would help me connect my grandmother to her parents, I would be most appreciative. Also the NATHANIEL TERRY line that is married into the LEAKE line is possible.

    The information I have on JANE ELIZABETH is quite documented. Mr. EUGENE WISEMAN and his chief researcher, MARY ELIZABETH BARNES, GILLENTINE cousins to me, are very conscientous about their data.

    "NICHOLAS GILLENTINE, born 1776 in Halifax Co, died 8 May 1834 in NcNairy Co., TN. He married on 20 Oct 1796 to ELIZABETH JANE TERRY. (She was born ca 1777 and died 5 Jan 1839 in McNairy County, TN). The migration of this family can be documented by use of census and tax list records. In the 1799 tax list of Grainger Co, TN we find NICHOLAS, along with his CHISUM cousins. In 1804 NICHOLAS is in Knox Co., TN and by 1807 he, along with JESSE TERRY (kin to his wife?) and ELIJAH CHISUM is in White County, TN. The following account is from Memorable Historical Accounts of White County (TN) and Area, by E. G. Rogers (page 3) "The first court was held in the house of JOSEPH TERRY who also provided the convenience of a small log jail. In 1809, however, the Legislature passed as act establishing Sparta and providing that it should be the county seat of White County. Commissioners were elected to lay off the town. These were .... and NICHOLAS GILLENTINE."

    The 1820 Census of White Co., TN lists NICHOLAS GILLENTINE with 2 males 10 to 16, 1 male 16 to 26, 1 female 16 to 18, 1 female 26 to 45, and one female over 45. By 1825 the Hopewell Baptist Church near Danville, Alabama membership lists includes NICHOLAS GILLENTINE, SR., JANE GILLENTINE, RICHARD LEAK GILLENTINE, NICHOLAS GILLENTINE, JR., MARTHA GILLENTINE, and ANNE GILLENTINE.

    The 1830 Census of McNairy Co., TN gives NICHOLAS GILLENTINE 1 male 5 to 10, 1 male 20 to 30, and 1 male 50 to 60, 2 females 10 to 15, 1 female 50 to 60 and 1 female 60 to 70 (this last probably his mother MARGARET who did not die until 1834). The records of the Bethel Church of Christ in White Co., TN indicate that part of NICHOLAS's family remained in that area, since JOHN GILLENTINE, NICHOLAS's oldest son, and John's wife MARY are members of that church in 1825.

    The children of NICHOLAS AND ELIZABETH JANE (TERRY) GILLENTINE FROM THE TERRY GILLENTINE BIBLE are: JOHN GILLENTINE, CATHERYN GILLENTINE, ELIZABETH GILLENTINE, ELLEANOR GILLENTINE, ANNE GILLENTINE, etc."

    The Bible also shows births, marriages, and death dates. NICHOLAS's grandfather NICHOLAS GILLINGTON died testate leaving two wills and naming his children and some of his grandchildren. I have a transcript of his Will written and registered in Halifax County, VA, dated October 21, 1772.
    From the court records of Van Buren County (6 Apr 1840 to 3 Aug 1840) it is learned that the General Assembly of the United States established the County of Van Buren, and authorized Justices of the peace. JOHN GILLENTINE was appointed commissioner for the town of Spencer. He was chairman of the county Court for a long period, helped establish Burrett College and was president of its board of trustees. (from Burrett, our Alma Mater, by EFFIE GILLENTINE, pg. 22)

    Another cousin has access to the Bible Records of JOHN GILLENTINE, son of JANE and NICHOLAS and their children are again given. In King William County, VA NICHOLAS GILLENTINE (NICHOLAS GILLENTINE m. to ELIAZBETH JANE TERRY'S grandfather), Capt. THOMAS TERRY, Capt. JAMES TERRY, JOHN HURT, POWELL'S ford adj Maulden and Norment's line. NICHOLAS is again mentiond in Caroline Co., VA 1733/34 with THOMAS TERRY, JOSEPH TERRY AND JUDITH (CRAWFORD) TERRY.

    In 1740 NICHOLAS surveyor of road. In 1742 Caroline Co., NICHOLAS and wife, acknowledge their release of land to SAMUEL NORMENT, JAMES COLLINS, GEORGE TRIBBLE, JOHN MACGREGO, THOMAS TERRY AND JOHN HUBBARD. Amelia Co., VA 1743, NICHOLAS GILLENTINE, JOHN AND ANN BROWN, RICHARD ECHOLES, SAMUEL TERRY, HANCE HENDRICK, ELISHA ESTES, ABRAHAM HURT, THOMAS PREWET, STEPHEN COLLINS, BENJAMIN HENDRICK, JOHN CHISUM, JOHN HURT, WILLIAM ECHOLES, WILLIAM GOOCH, SQ. JOSEPH TERRY, JOHN GILLENTINE, ANN GILLENTINE. JOHN GILLENTINE appointed surveyor of road.

    Halifax Co, VA 1752 JOHN GUILLINTINE, RICHARD ECHOLLS, JAMES TERRY, Antrim Parish records; 1753 NATHANIEL TERRY, in 1754 JOHN GILLINGTON resigns his vestrymanship (page 124 of Vestry Book of Antrim Parish of Halifax Co., VA.
    Then part of a page is missing--it goes on JOSEPH COLLINS, SPILLSBEE, then
    JOHN GILLENTINE'S will, ISAAC MARTIN, JOHEPH ECKOLS, BENJAMIN HUBBARD, ELIZABETH TRIBBLE. In 1781 JOSEPH TERRY, MOSES TERRY, JAMES LEEK, CHAMP TERRY.

    Amelia Co, VA 1754 JOEL HURT came into court and chose GEORGE BOOKER for guardian, together with NICHOLAS GILLINGTINE, his security record bond (Order book 3 p. 176). WILLIAM HILLSMAN, JANE HENDRICK. 1755 at a court held Mar 27, 1755 JOHN HURT, orphan of JOHN HURT chose NICHOLAS GUILLINTON as his guardian (order book 4 p. I) WILLIAM HILLSMAN, WILLIAM ECHOLES.

    Halifax Co., VA 1775 William and Susanna Gillentine to Moza Hurt of Bedford Co., VA 1776 Halifax Co., NICHOLAS GILLENTINE, son of WILLIAM and MARGARET (HURT) GILLENTINE m. ELIZABETH JANE TERRY.

    1743 Amelia Co., VA Deed of land, from NICHOLAS GUILLINTINE to JOHN GUILLINTINE, ABRAHAM ECHOLLES. 1771 Amelia Co, VA Will book I, page 71 first will for NICHOLAS GILLINGTON Nov 2, 1771.

    These are court records researched by Mary Elizabeth Barnes. Perhaps this information sheds some light on JANE's parents. It certainly establishes a long relationship of the GILLENTINES with the TERRY family. I know the family has to be one who married into the Leaks as that is a given name. Every given name in James Terry and Elizabeth Leake's family is found in Jane Elizabeth and Nicholas Gillentine's family. If you have any information that would help me connect my grandmother to her parents, I would be most appreciative if you would share it with me. Also the Nathaniel Terry line that is married into the Leak line is possible.

    Do you have any TERRYS in your files? I would like to receive them because once I find Jane's parents, I'll probably need them! Any help? Ideas?

    It's all appreciated!

    Thanks, SueTiffany@AOL.com

    Rachel Hendrick (c1715? aft1758) She was Rachel "Gillington" in her father’s will.

    Though the proof is circumstantial, she had married John Gillington (also Gillentine and similar variants), sometime before 1742 at a time when Gillington was living in Amelia County.

    John Gillington was the only son of Nicholas Gillington of Caroline and later Amelia County, who had a patent in northern Amelia near William Hendrick in 1736.159 John Gillington, who appears frequently in Amelia records beginning with the tithables of 1738, received a gift of 400 acres of the 1736 patent from his father in 1743.160 Rachel was already married to him, for the 23 August 1742 accounting of her brother William Hendrick’s estate shows a payment to Rachel Gillington.161 Though he was still in Amelia in early 1747, by 1748 John Gillington had removed to Lunenburg County, as shown by several deeds disposing of his Amelia land.162

    He was apparently living in a 204 acre parcel for which a patent was issued in 1750.163 He appears in the Lunenburg tithables 1748-1750, after which Halifax County was formed. He subsequently appears in Halifax records, notably as a vestryman for Antrim parish and as an accused counterfeiter.164 John Gillington apparently died intestate in late 1762, as his inventory was recorded in Halifax on 20 January 1763.165

    Nicholas Gillington outlived his son, leaving wills recorded in both Amelia and Halifax in 1773 which made it clear that John was his only (or at least only living) son.166 Those wills explicitly identify William Gillington as John’s son, and Jerusha Gillington as John’s daughter.

    Notes:

    [Lila Garner]

    Nicholas GILLENTINE was born about 1676 in England, and had immigrated to Virginia by about 1710, when he married Eleanor Echols. Francis Gill[1] writes,

    "I am very confident of the information back from us [he brings some lines of descendancy lines down to the present {about 2000}, but our line enters the family with Richard and Sarah (Hillsman) Borum] to Nicholas Gillentine, because I have done the research myself.

    "Nicholas Gillentine" seems to be the immigrant for the family. There are no others of the surname, or likeness of that surname, in Virginia earlier. His birth year does fit the second marriage of John Girlington [the man thought to be his father]…. As with other cases in genealogy, a ‘leap of faith’ is required."

    Two things make it certain that Nicholas Gillentine was the immigrant: Francis found no others of that surname or likeness of that surname, in Virginia, earlier than or contemporaneous with Nicholas; and Echols[2] signed a family genealogy[3] on 14 June 1850, in which he writes in his own quaint style,

    "Old English John Echols--had 3 Daughters which I would have inserted had Known enough about them to give any satisfactory account of them---I only Know they married Outlandish men-one an Englishman named Nicholas Gilington---of their family I know nothing..."

    By "outlandish", Milner certainly means that they were immigrants, although the term in today’s usage does not suggest that definition. Wading through Milner’s history is difficult and he gives no dates, but his outline of the family has been found to be surprisingly accurate by those who have followed his clues and used census records and state and county documents to prove his statements.
    Nicholas and his wife were the parents of one son and four daughters. If there were other children, they have not been identified.
    I have seen conjecture that after his wife Eleanor died, he married an Elizabeth Ricketts. I do not know whether this is correct.
    A transcription of his will follows:

    "In the Name of God, Amen. I, Nicholas Gillington of Halifax Co., being weak in body but in sound and perfect sense and memory, thanks be to God for same, Calling to mind that men must die and after that must come to judgement, do consider that what of our affairs are not settled in this life cannot be settled hereafter, do make and ordain this, my last will and testament, acknowledging this to be my last will and testament, disannulling all other wills whatsoever, and to proceed, I shall give my estate as followeth, to-wit:

    I give to my daughter Catherine Brown one feather bed, to her and her heirs;

    to Elizabeth Collins I give one feather bed, to her and her heirs;

    to Elizabeth Chisum, daughter of John Chisum, I give one feather bed, to her and her heirs;

    to my son John Gillington I have given 400 acres of land which I intended should be his full portion, nevertheless, to take matters out of dispute, I give to his heirs five pounds cash.

    To John Chisum I give the land and plantation which I now possess in Amelia Co., containing 300 acres, to be at his own disposal for which reason he is to pay to Catherine Brown or to her heirs, -20. current money; to Elizabeth Collins or her heirs, -20.; to Ann Hillsman or her heirs, -20.; to Eleanor Chisum or her heirs, -20.; to Priscilla Hendrick, my granddaughter, or her heirs, -20.;

    and as for my negro woman Rose, she shall choose her mistress among my daughters, and they that she shall choose shall pay -20. to be equally divided among all my children now living and my two granddaughters, which is Elizabeth Chisum, wife of John Estes, and Jerushea, daughter of John Gillington, deceased.

    I therefore make and ordain John Chisum my whole and sole executor of this, my last will and testament, made in the year 1772, and on the 21st day of October.

    "In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand.

    "Nicholas Gillington

    "Witnesses:
    John Dyer
    John Templeton
    Elizabeth Lack"

    He died in 1774 in Halifax County, Virginia, and is buried there.

    There is a hand-drawn picture on the outside of Nicholas’ will, believed to have been drawn by Nicholas himself, that purports to look like Thurland Castle in Yorkshire. Francis describes the drawing as bearing a remarkable resemblance to the left wing of the castle as it looks today.

    There is no question that the name was earlier "Girlington", and a Girlington family inhabited that castle, having been driven out during one of the revolutions there.

    A ‘genealogy’ for Nicholas follows, which Francis Gill believes is accurate but requires a ‘leap of faith’, because it cannot be, or at least has not yet been proven; note that the name ‘Nicholas’ was in the family early:

    Abstracted from, "The Wiseman Family and Allied Lines", Volume I, by Eugene Wiseman, 1991, pp. 359-360:

    "The Gillentine family of early Virginia records is of English extractions,the name being alternately spelled Guillintine, Guillington, Gillinton,Girlington. The head of the Girlington family of Yorkshire, England had the given name "Nicholas" for many generations, as did the progenitor of the Virginia Family and several of his descendants.

    Among the Halifax County,VA courthouse loose papers is a crude drawing of the left wing of the Thurland Castle and following inscription:

    "Nicholas Gillinting, his hand in the 97th year of my age 1773"

    This inscription particulary well written for a person of his advanced years and is the only record which tells the age of Nicholas Gillentin. Although there is no proof in the church records it is believed, based on the drawing, that Nicholas is the son of John Girlington of Thurland Castle and his second wife Margaret, daughter of James Ducket of County Westmorland. John Girlington (born 1637) was the oldest surviving son of Sir John Girlington of Thurland Castle and his wife Katherine, daughter of Wm. Girlington (a cousin)."

    It is possible that Margaret Duckett gave birth to Nicholas Girlington out of wedlock, which could account for Nicholas not being identified as heir to John's possessions. This issue may take much more research for resolution.

    Nicholas Gillington, born about 1675 in Thurland Castle , had son John and daughters Ann, Elizabeth, Catherine, and Ellender. Was decribed by Milner Echols in his book, "History of Echols Family", as 'outlandish'. It is probable that Nicholas was illegitimate, and that his parents wed after his birth (as his father was married once before). This would explain his not inheriting any of his father's estate and his decision to migrate to the Americas.

    Notes:

    Well, you (unnamed correspondant) are mostly accurate concerning the Girlington name and the info on Thurland, but not quite.

    The original name was Gyrlyngton and S L O W L Y became Girlington and finally after the 1800 US census, Gillentine.The name Gyrlyngton was, according to The Yorkshire Place Name Society has identified the Gyrlyngton family to have derived it's name from the "tun" or "town" of Gyrla, a Saxon settlement of early Yorkshire prior to the Norman invasion. This was also a period of time before surnames were used. The first recorded Gyrlyngton was Waleran De Gyrlyngton b: abt. 1058 . Waleran was Lord of Gyrlyngton-juxta-Wycliffe near Richmondshire during the reigns of Henry I and Stephen (1100-1154).Waleran may well have been a descendant of one of William the Conqueror's invading Normans, most of whom were given land for their support.

    As for Thurland Castle:

    Sir John Girlington, b: 1560, was Lord of Hackforth and Hutton Longvillers in Richmondshire. He exchanged the manor of Hutton Longvillers with Francis Tunstall of Wycliffe in Lancashire for the castle and manor of Thurland and the manor and advows on of the Church of Tunstall in 1605. He died in Thurland Castle on 28 Feb.1613. Before his death, he conveyed the Manor of Hackforth to his brother Thomas.

    Sir John Girlington (son of Nicholas)b: July 19, 1613 at Kirkby, Malham, Yorkshire, d: March 1645 in Melton Mobray, England +Katherine Girlington (his 5th cousin - daughter of William Girlington) b: 1617 in Southcave, Yorkshire. Made knight, major general, and sheriff of Lancshire by Charles I on the 6th of June, 1642. Killed in the King's Service at Melton Mowbray (may have actually died a few weeks later due to gange green from a musket ball in his foot). He became heir to the family fortunes after the death of his brother Josias in youth. Like all his predecessors, he was a Roman Catholic; therefore a staunch supporter of Charles I during the English Civil War. After a seven week siege on the castle, he surrendered Thurland Castle to the Protestant Parlimentary forces who backed the Cromwell lead Civil War / Revolt - approximately in 1644.

    Sir John's son was the last Girlington to actually inhabit the castle or the castle grounds.John Girlington b: July 9, 1634d: 1706 m: abt 1674 +Margaret Duckett b: abt 1638, Westmoreland, England.Apparently allowed to reside in Thurland Castle for some time after the war ended.However, most likely lost nobility title and ownership of the castle and lands.Margaret was pledged to Sir John Girlington's male heir as part of an alliance between the Bellingham/Duckett families and the Girlington families.Bellingham was strategically located near the Scottish border to the north. (Margaret was John's 1st wife and Nicholas was the only child. She most likely died in childbirth or from complications shortly thereafter.2d wife Margaret Curven produced 5 daughters)Ironically, Margaret Duckett was a descendant of the Tunstall and Bellingham families.The Tunstalls were the original owners of Thurland Castle, as well as the original grant of 1004 acres around the castle.What's more ironic, after the leases to the castle paid of the fines on Margaret and John Girlington for being "Jacobites" (supporters of James II and the Stewart line), John was allowed to live on the grounds but not in the castle ... the Tunstall family was eventually granted back the castle.John Girlington died almost penniless.The only recognition remaining today of the Girlington family and Thurland castle is a small gold plaque that the friars placed in the small church on the Thurland grounds .. it merely bares his name, birth in 1634, Lord of Thurland Castle, and that he died in 1706.

    So as castles go, the Girlington family actually lived in Thurland for a relatively short period ... 1605 to sometime before 1706.

    Yes, Nicholas did have a drawing of the remaining wing. Since he was born some years after the siege destroyed the rest of the castle, that wing is all he knew.It was the billiard room, what we would call a den, dining hall, smaller ante rooms, and a kitchen on the first floor.The upstairs area of that wing was merely sleeping quarters.I have a reprint of that drawing (first floor only).

    Today, the castle has been rennovated into apartments.The apartments are 3 and 4 bedroom settings.The price range is between $500,000 and $1,000,000 US.The first person to purchase a 4 bedroom unit will be declared Lord of the Manor.

    Hope this gives some of you some additional insight to our Gyrlyngton, Girlington, Gillentine (rhymes with wine ... not teen) family.

    Don

    Born at Thurland Castle in the Parish of Cantsfield to Sir John Girlington of Thurland and his wife Katherine Girlington, a cousin, born in South Cave, Yorkshire.

    John Girlington succeeded his father as heir to the family possessions at Thurland Castle and elsewhere while still a minor after his father Sir John Girlington was killed during the defense of Pontefract Castle in 1645. John was first married to Margaret Curven, daughter of Sir Henry Curven of Workington, knight, about 1655. After the restoration of the Stuarts, Charles II made John Girlington High Sheriff of Lancashire in 1663. John filed a bill touching his mother's inheritance in 1671. He stated in this bill that Thurland Castle had been taken and demolished by Parliamentary forces and that his father (Sir John) had conveyed all of his title deeds to Pontefract Castle for safe-keeping. He further stated that afterwards Pontefract was also taken by the Parliamentarians (in 1645) and that all the said deeds were then destroyed. As High Sheriff, John was able to return Thurland Castle to an inhabitable condition.

    It is believed that wife Margaret died during the birth of their daughter Elizabeth in December 1675.

    It is also believed that John Girlington married Margaret Duckett, daughter of James Duckett of Grayrigg, Westmoreland County, esquire, soon after the death of his first wife.

    It is possible that Margaret Duckett gave birth to Nicholas Girlington out of wedlock, which could account for Nicholas not being identified as heir to John's possessions. This issue may take much more research for resolution.

    The Girlingtons seemed to have constantly been plagued with financial difficulties from the time they took possession of Thurland Castle in 1605. This culminated in John Girlington having to sell the castle in 1698 to John Bennett, a lawyer of some importance in London. Following the sale of Thurland, John Girlington moved the town of Hornby (possibly Hornby Castle) where he died in 1706. Daughter Katherine Askew was the executrix of her father's estate in 1706.

    Child of [John Girlington] and [Margaret Duckett] is:

    i.[Nicholas Gillington], born Abt. 1676 in [Thurland Castle, Lancastershire, England]; died Bef. December 16, 1773 in Halifax Co., VA; married (1) [Mary Eleanor Eckolls] Abt. 1714 in [VA/England]; married (2) [Elizabeth Ricketts] Bef. 1742 in VA.

    The date is due to Col. North. In a fine of 1693 respecting the manor of Tunstall, the advowson of the church, &c., John Girlington was deforciant and Robert Fowler plaintiff; Pal. of Lanc. Feet of F. bdle. 230, m. 165.

    A brass plate in the church states that John Girlington died in 1706, aged sixty-nine.

    *

    more...

    Sir John's son was the last Girlington to actually inhabit the castle or the castle grounds.

    John Girlington b: July 9, 1634 d: 1706 m: abt 1674 +Margaret Duckett b: abt 1638, Westmoreland, England. Apparently allowed to reside in Thurland Castle for some time after the war ended. However, most likely lost nobility title and ownership of the castle and lands.

    Margaret was pledged to Sir John Girlington's male heir as part of an alliance between the Bellingham/Duckett families and the Girlington families. Bellingham was strategically located near the Scottish border to the north. (Margaret was John's 1st wife and Nicholas was the only child. She most likely died in childbirth or from complications shortly thereafter.

    2d wife Margaret Curven produced 5 daughters) Ironically, Margaret Duckett was a descendant of the Tunstall and Bellingham families. The Tunstalls were the original owners of Thurland Castle, as well as the original grant of 1004 acres around the castle. What's more ironic, after the leases to the castle paid of the fines on Margaret and John Girlington for being "Jacobites" (supporters of James II and the Stewart line), John was allowed to live on the grounds but not in the castle ... the Tunstall family was eventually granted back the castle.

    John Girlington died almost penniless.

    The only recognition remaining today of the Girlington family and Thurland castle is a small gold plaque that the friars placed in the small church on the Thurland grounds .. it merely bares his name, birth in 1634, Lord of Thurland Castle, and that he died in 1706.

    So as castles go, the Girlington family actually lived in Thurland for a relatively short period ... 1605 to sometime before 1706.

    Birth:
    Tunstall is a village in north Lancashire, England (grid reference SD607736). It is 11.1 miles (18 km) northeast of Lancaster on the A683 road between Lancaster and Kirkby Lonsdale. In the 2001 census the civil parish of Tunstall had a population of 105,[1] increasing to 223 at the 2011 Census.[2]

    To the north east of the village is the Grade I listed Church of St John the Baptist.

    Several houses, a restaurant, a village hall, and a tennis court make up most of the village of Tunstall. The restaurant/pub, called the Lunesdale Arms hosts many village activities, such as carol services and quizzes.

    Thurland Castle

    To the south of the village is Thurland Castle, which dates from the fourteenth century. It was made ruinous following a siege in 1643, restored in 1809 and 1829, then gutted by fire in 1879 and rebuilt. It is now divided into apartments.

    From HISTORY OF ECHOLS FAMILY by MILNER ECHOLS 1850

    John Echols an Englishman came to America about the end of the 16th or the beginning of the 17th Century and settled in Caroline County, Virginia, and married a tall redheaded woman named Mary Cave and by her had five sons and three daughters. I shall begin with his sons first and carry out their family as far as my knowledge extends.

    (Other details set out in tree as applicable)

    First Echols in Virginia

    ID: I5585
    Name: John ECHOLS Sr.

    Surname: ECHOLS

    Given Name: John

    Suffix: Sr.

    Sex: M

    Birth: 17 Feb 1650 in Wilmslow,Cheshire,England

    Death: 1712 in Lunenburg, Virginia, USA

    Ancestral File #: NNRL-3F

    Note:

    In 1850 Milner Echols wrote-The Short History of Our Family? beginning with his earliest known ancestor, John Echols Sr. who married Mary Cave about 1688. His grandson brought it to Texas and the Dallas Genealogical Society published it. Milner was not a genealogist and other historians have surpassed his work. Nevertheless, it is interesting because he wrote it so long ago. In this Family Topic, we will quote him periodically. Quotations in italics are Milner?s words.-John Echols an Englishman Came to America about the end of the 16th or the beginning of the 17th Century and Settled in Caro County Verginia and married a tall Redheaded woman named Mary Cave - & by her had 5 Sons & 3 Daughters. - Yet, some historians believe Echols was not English but Welsh and perhaps even Welsh Quaker. We do not know who John?s father was.

    Three other Echols were in Virginia before John: Joyce Echoll in 1652 , Richard Eccles in 1653 , and Sylvester Echols in 1664 . The most likely of the three to be the father of John is Richard Eccles. They spelled the name-Echols? many ways in the records:-Eckles,?-Eckols,?-Eccles,?-Eckels,? etc. Some have speculated that John Echols wasidentical to the John Eccles who appeared near Herrin Creek in Charles City County 1677-94 . This John Echols married possibly a daughter of Thomas Harris and his wife, Yuet ?. On 13 September 1677 , administration of the estate of Thomas Harris was granted John Echols and John Hardaway. Thomas Harris, likely the son of the elder Thomas Harris and who had come of age, petitioned the court to summon Echols on 2 March 1690/1 . Charles City County awarded Echols 200 pounds of tobacco for two wolves heads in 1691 . We can find no evidence that John Echols of Charles City County was John Echols Indeed the former John Echols was killing wolves in Charles City County while the latter John Echols was living in New Kent. We do not know who Mary Cave?s father was but we presume he was one of a few men named Cave in early Virginia. The most likely candidate is John Cave [1678] who twice applied for a land patent with John Echols. Mary was said to be born about 1650 and died after 1712. On 20 April 1685, John Echols and William Morris received 350 acres-behind land formerly of Mr. Giles Moody? in New Kent County.

    This was for the transportation of seven persons. Echols and Morris allowed their right to the land lapse and James Taylor obtained its patent in 1688 . On 23 April 1688, John alone was granted 321 acres next to land he already owned. John evidently prospered because fifteen years later he, Samuel Craddock, John Cave, and William Glover were granted 1,620 acres on the-branches of Tuckahoe Swamp and the freshes of Mattaponi River in King and Queen and Essex Counties.? John never lived in Caro County because they created it sixteen years after he died. Yet in 1685 the boundaries of New Kent County adjoined the present-day Caro County and part of John?s land may have been in what is now Caro County. On 23 October 1703, John Echols and John Cave secured a patent for 600 acres in St. Stephens Parish in King and Queen County. John Echols paid quit rents on 220 acres in 1704. John and Mary were the parents of five sons: John , Abraham , William , Joseph, and Richard Echols .

    Their three daughters were Eleanor , Ann , and Elizabeth Echols.. The Echols sons were dependable Amelia County citizens and served on juries when called. Of twelve good men on the jury of Robert Vaughan vs. Richard Ward on 9 December 1737, three were Richard, William, and Abraham Echols . On historian reported that seven individuals, including four sons of John Echols Sr., were granted 6,000 acres of land in Spotsylvania County, Virginia, on 11 December 1728. Yet no such patent was ever issued. The Echols sons were Abraham , William, Joseph , and Richard Echols . Another participant was William Echols?s son-in-law, Richard Anderson Jr. We believe these four Echols sons lived in Amelia County, Virginia, until around 1750. They then resettled in what is now Halifax County and Pittsylvania County. The Gillintine, Marchbanks, Collins, Hendrick, and Hubbard families, who intermarried with the Echols, moved from Amelia County to Halifax around the same time.

    After the Echols family moved from Amelia County, another Echols family arrived. Edward Echols, patented 400 acres in July 1738, 548 acres in April 1748, and 364 acres in September 1755. In 1755 as Edward Echols-of Albemarle Parish, Sussex County, Virginia,? he deeded land to his brother, Robert Echols of Nottoway Parish , and his son, Thomas Echols . This was perhaps the Edward Echols who secured a patent for 140 acres in Surry (later Sussex) County in 1727 to which he added 104 acres in 1743. Both Edward and Thomas Eccles were later in Albemarle Parish and the Albemarle Parish Register records the births of some of their children. Edward Echols died in Sussex County [27 Oct 1757 / 21 Apr 1758] leaving Amelia County land to several sons.

    Other notes:

    John Echols, according to the best history, migrated to the US during Oliver Cromwell's time, because of some differences between Cromwell and himself! He is reputed to have had large possessions in England, and to have sold same, turning the proceeds thereof into gold and brought with him. He settled in Virginia, becoming a large planter and slave owner.

    Notes from http://www.virginians.com/redirect.htm?topics&838

    Land patents for John Echols On 20 April 1685 John Echols and William Morris received 350 acres ?behind land formerly of Mr. Giles Moody? in New Kent County. This was for the transportation of seven persons. Echols and Morris allowed their right to the land lapse and James Taylor obtained its patent in 1688. On 23 April 1688, John alone was granted 321 acres next to land he already owned. Fifteen years later in 1703, he, Samuel Craddock, John Cave, and William Glover were granted 1,620 acres on the ?branches of Tuckahoe Swamp and the freshes of Mattaponi River? in King and Queen and Essex Counties. The tract began on the east side of Potobago Path. A patent for Francis Meriwether places Potobago Path on the branches of Hoskins Creek. Thus the tract was 2-3 miles south of present-day Beazley, Virginia. On 23 October 1703, John Echols and John Cave secured a patent for 600 acres in St. Stephen?s Parish in King and Queen County.

    Excursus: Who Was Jane Hendrick?

    The identity of Hance Hendrick’s wife Jane is unknown. Her use as a headright tells us that she immigrated into Virginia, probably at the same time as her husband. But this is the sole record in which her name appears. Thus we cannot even conclude that she was alive at the time Hance Hendrick applied for his patents, for headrights need not have been living persons.29 The fact that we have no record of a dower release in the 1706 deed (see below) forces us to consider this possibility.

    28 A Thomas Harvie married the “widow Hendrick” in Elizabeth City County in 1696 – she may have been the “Catharine Harvie” who died in Charles City (York) County in 1701. See Chronology.
    29 A headright certificate, in theory at least, could only be issued for a person who survived the passage into Virginia. But once issued, the certificate could survive the persons named within it.

    Notes from http://www.virginians.com/redirect.htm?topics&838

    John Exoll of King William County

    The most likely candidate for John?s father is one John Exoll. John Axoll and Anthony Haines had secured with a patent for 600 acres in New Kent County in July 1658. In October 1658 a patent to Robert Jones for land on the north side of the Mattaponi River in what was then New Kent County mentioned land of John Exoll. A patent to Richard Harrison for land next to John Exoll?s swamp included William Exoll as a headright in 1664. Exol Swamp, which is on present-day maps of King and Queen County, is about 15 from where John Echols later settled. John Pigg whose descendants were in Southside Virginia near the Echolls held neighboring land.

    John Cave was born 1644 in England, the son of Samuel Cave and Rachel Kellogg.

    He was an importer of fine wines. He owned land in Stafford County.

    He married 1st Elizabeth Andrews, daughter of George Andrews and had issue: Mary, John, William and David.

    He married 2nd Elizabeth Travers, no children from this union.

    John Cave and his son-in-law John Echols, sponsored settlers to come to Virginia by paying their transportation for which they received headrights for fifty acres.

    [A headright is a legal grant of land to settlers. Headrights are most notable for their role in the expansion of the thirteen British colonies in North America; the Virginia Company of London gave headrights to settlers, and the Plymouth Company followed suit. The headright system was used in several colonies, including Maryland, Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina. Most headrights were for 1 to 1,000 acres (4.0 km2) of land, and were given to anyone willing to cross the Atlantic Ocean and help populate the colonies. Headrights were granted to anyone who would pay for the transportation costs of a laborer or indentured servant. These land grants consisted of 50 acres (200,000 m2) for someone newly moving to the area and 100 acres (0.40 km2) for people previously living in the area. By giving the land to the landowning masters the indentured servants had little or no chance to procure their own land. This kept many colonials poor and led to strife between the poor servants and wealthy landowners.]

    Comments (John Cave b. 6 Feb 1644 Misterton, Leicestershire, England d. 8 Apr 1721 Stafford County, Virginia, British Colonies in America): John Cave I believe is my 7th Great Grand farther and am trying to find the truth as to a few question's.

    1.Was John married twice ?

    Does John's family consist of any of the following. Benjamin Cave Sr. 1703, Benjamin Cave Jr. 1735, William & Mary Cave 1777 and John Smith Cave 1801 (?)

    It seems there is a lot of mislead information on this. Can you shed some truth light in this matter.

    I would like to finish my family history while my health is still fairley good.

    Thanks in advance on any information you can send me.
