    More on Thomas, blog written by Robert Burke...

    1) The children of Thomas/Louvisa were Lucy, Anderson, Abner, Abraham, James, William, and George, in more or less that order. There was no Thomas or Lewis that I know of. The Thomas or Lewis attributed as a son of Thomas/Louvisa was actually Thomas Womack, son of William Womack (son of Isham) & Lucy Womack (dau of Thomas/Louvisa). More on that below.

    People ask me how I "know" that George Womack was a son. No one knows for sure, because there aren't any probate or deed or Bible records that list the children of Thomas/Louvisa. However, from the letter of Francis Marion Womack, dated 1905, (http:// www.womacknet.com/features/fmwletter.html ), we know that Lucy and Abner were children.

    Captain James Jackson Womack wrote a sketch of the Womack family circa 1909 (http://www.womacknet.com/sources/ wgv4n1.html ) in which he lists 5 brothers as the children of Thomas Womack and Louvisa Rice: Anderson, Abner, William, James and George.

    We can add Abraham Womack as a son as well, since he is the right age to be a sibling of the other 5, he appears in records with them, and Thomas's father was Abraham Womack. In fact, all 6 sons of Louvisa were with her in the 1790 census of Rutherford Co, NC. Abner must have married around the time of the census, because he is listed a second time as head of household in Spartanburg Co, SC, which is adjacent to Rutherford.

    2) Francis Marion Womack's letter had just a little to say about his uncle Thomas Womack: "Thomas Womack had a wife and two children. He died. I never knew what became of his wife and children." Rev Christenberry Lee (http://rebgen.blogspot.com/2010/02/womack-blanton- reminiscences-of.html ) described a "Lewis Womack", son of Anderson, who married Manima Padgett and had children Isham and Leah, before dying young.

    Rutherford Co, NC court records indicate Minimy Womack was given letter of administration on the estate of Thomas Womack, deceased, in July 1809. Alanson Padgett (male) was the bondsman of Leah Womack's marriage to Sampson McDaniel. Christenberry Lee made several mistakes, such as saying Sarah Womack, wife of Jeremiah Blanton, was the daughter of Thomas Womack [and Louvisa Rice], when she in fact was the daughter of William Womack and Lucy Womack, as stated in Francis Marion Womack's letter. "Lewis Womack" was actually Thomas Womack, and he was not the son of Anderson Womack, but rather of William Womack and Lucy Womack. He had a wife and two children, and then died, exactly as Francis Marion Womack described; Francis never knew what became of them because they stayed in NC when most of the rest of this family moved to TN, and later AL.

    3) David Womack who married Esther Tanner in Rutherford Co, NC was almost certainly a grandson of Thomas/Louvisa. He was probably the son of William/Lucy, and Francis Marion Womack forgot about him when he listed his uncles and aunts. He might have been Anderson's son, but the census records don't seem to fit. He was in the same military company in the War of 1812 as Thomas Womack, who was certainly Anderson's son. David's daughter Louisa E Womack, married Squire Rutherford Davis on 23 Nov 1832 in Union Co, KY. In 1829, Louisa Womack had been a buyer at her fathers estate sale in Union Co, KY. See the bio of Andrew Jackson Davis (http:// freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~bryant/obits/ Davis_Andrew_Jackson.html). It states that Squire R Davis was born in Warren Co, TN, where of course, the majority of thedescendants of Thomas/Louvisa wound up. Squire R Davis was likely related to the big Davis clan that intermarried with Anderson Womack's kids.

    Thomas married Louvisa Rice 0___ 1760, Halifax County, Virginia. Louvisa (daughter of John Rice and Mary Finney) was born 0___ 1745, Halifax County, Virginia; died 1828-1830, Rutherford County, North Carolina. [Group Sheet]


  4. 21.  Louvisa Rice was born 0___ 1745, Halifax County, Virginia (daughter of John Rice and Mary Finney); died 1828-1830, Rutherford County, North Carolina.

    Well Fay, it does get interesting. Here is what I have:
    In the US Census of 1790 Louvisa is listed in Rutherford County N.C. as a 'Head of Family' with 2 males over 16 years (Abraham & Abner) and 4 males under 16 (William, James, Thomas Jr & David). Lucy (the eldest child and only girl) is not listed as part of this family during this census because she was married a distant cousin - William Womack- in the late 1780's

    In the 1800 Census, Louvisa is still listed in Rutherford County N.C., but with only 1 male 26-45yrs(probably Thomas Jr) and 1 male 16-25 yrs (David). Louvisa is listed as 'over 45' when in fact she is probably over 50. By the time her youngest son David marries in 1809, she is about 60 yrs old.

    At the time of David's death in 1828, it appears the Louvisa(about 85 yrears old) is still living with David and Esther, because she is named as purchaser of some property at the sale to settle his estate.
    In the 1830 census, no mention is found of her, therefore it is assumed that she died sometime between late 1828 and 1830. It is unknown exactly where she died; possibilities include Ky , Illinois, Missouri, and possibly Iowa.

    Notes:

    Articulate, erudite, well-sourced MULLICAN opus authored by D. Mitchell Jones (1942-2006);

    JOHN OR WILLIAM?

    Which one was the Father of John and William Mullican?

    By 1812 two brothers, John and William Mullican, were living on Mountain Creek in Warren County, Tennessee. For many years Mullican researchers have accepted as fact that the father of John and William Mullican was John Mullican. This is based on Rev. Ridlon's chapter on the Mullicans of Casey Co., KY in his book.i He states that John Mullican, SR married Nancy Ann Allen. Rev. Ridlon appears to have researched the families in his book, but it appears that most of his work on Casey Co., KY Mullicans was by oral tradition. It appears that his major informant was Polly Stanburry granddaughter of Solomon Mullican b 1784 of Casey Co., KY. After this John Mullican Rev. Ridlon's work appears very accurate.

    Rev. Ridlon's lists the family of John Mullican, SR as:

    John Mullican m Nancy Ann Allen:

    1. Thomas b bef [1763]
    2. William b [1769 VA] m1st Wilmoth Bruce m2nd Elizabeth Fuson m3rd Elizabeth Smith m4th Franky Barnes.
    3. . John b [7 March 1772 VA] m1st Mary Bruce m2nd Nancy Tarwatter.
    4. Ning b [ca 1765-1784].
    5. Nancy b [1775 VA] m John Vickers
    6. Sally b [ca 1784-1800] m. William Carr. Lived Kentucky and Alabama.
    7. Solomon b 1 Sept 1784 [VA] d 17 Nov 1871 Casey Co., KY m Nancy Ridgeway.
    8. James b [ca 1788] m _______ Lamb. Moved to Indiana

    Family tradition can be very helpful in researching our family lines, but if it is not correct then it can lead us astray. This then causes us to waste much of our research time looking for the wrong ancestor. This is true on the two Mullican brothers in Warren County. It is important to evaluate family tradition just as we do the records that we find. In family tradition if the event did not occur during the lifetime of the person giving the information the researcher should question the accuracy of any statement. I have found that an individual is fairly accurate through their grandparents, but after that it can be very inaccurate. But all family tradition can give us clues to look for in our research.

    I have found that we find very few records that state a direct ancestry. This is especially true in researching families of the Upper Cumberland area. Most of our ancestors did not leave wills, and our only hope is an exhaustive search of all the available records. We also must examine with the same detail the records of associates, neighbors, and potential relatives of our known ancestors. We then have to take the pieces of evidence that we obtain and analyze them to fit them into a pattern that can provide us with the answer to our problem.

    In researching my mother's surname of Mullican I spent many years in looking for a John Mullican in Virginia and other states. I kept ignoring the principle that the answer to the problem is the ancestor himself. When I conducted detailed research in the area where John and William Mullican lived and died, I started to form a different opinion than what Rev. Ridlon had determined.

    KEY RESEARCH FINDINGS IN KENTUCKY AND TENNESSEE:

    1. John and William Mullican first appear together in Warren County, Tennessee on the 1812 Tax list in Richard Cantrell's District. Also in this district were Elias, James Jr. & Sr, and Julias Webb.
    2. In the 1813 petition of citizens living in extreme Northeast corner of Warren County to move the voting place to Pine Creek are the names of John Mullican, William Mullican, Jr., and William Mullican. At this time both of the Mullican brothers had sons named John and William, but none of them were old enough to vote.
    3. Known associates of the Mullicans were Allens, Bristers (Bristows}, Lambs, Vickers, and Webbs.
    4. The 1807 Tax List of Casey County, Kentucky had a William Mullican & William Mullican, Sr living on Knoblick Creek.ii The 1808 Tax List also had a William Mullican, Jr., William Mullican, Sr., and Solomon Mullican. There were no other Mullicans. There was also a deed from Samuel Coleman & Milly Coleman to William Mullican for 100 acres of land on Knoblick Creek.iii The 1813 tax list had Soloman Mullican with 200 acres of land purchased of William Mullican. Also found was a deed from William Mulakin & Ann his wife to William Hanna for land on Knoblick Creek.iv Also found were court records showing William Mullican filing suit against Samuel Coleman and Jonathan Lamb.v
    5. Casey County, Kentucky was formed from Lincoln County in 1806. A search of Lincoln County records found a William Mullican on Knoblick Creek on the 1805 and 1806vi Tax lists along with Jesse, Joel, and Townsend Webb.
    6. William Mullican was also found on the 1814, 1816, and 1818 Tax lists of Lincoln County, Kentucky.

    At this point in my research I had a formed the theory that the father of the two Mullican brothers was William Mullican, and not John Mullican. Research in South Carolina and Virginia further strengthed this theory.

    KEY RESEARCH FINDINGS IN SOUTH CAROLINA AND VIRGINA:

    1. William Mullicanvii, William Mullican, Jrviii, Thomas Mullicanix, and Ninimon Mullicanx all own land on Horse Creek in Greenville District, South Carolina. Land of Thomas and William is adjoining. William Mullican, Jr. is witness to the deed of William Mullican, William Mullican witness to deed of Thomas Mullicanxi, and James Mullican witness to deed when William Mullican sells his land in 1807.
    2. In 1787 &1807 the wife of William Mullican is Ann or Anneyxii, in 1813 the wife of Thomas Mullican is Milleyxiii, and in 1813 the wife of Ninemon is Susannahxiv.
    3. William Mullican, Jr. purchased land in Pendleton District, South Carolina from Joel Webbxv. William Mullican witness to deed of Joel Webbxvi. William Brister and Nancy Vick[Vickers] witnesses to deed of Joel Webbxvii. Benjamin Brister land borders Ninimon Mullican, and Benjamin Brister witness to deed of Ninimonxviii.
    4. In 1799 William Millican, Jr [Mullican] of Pendleton District, South Carolina sold his livestock to William Millican [Mullican], Sr of Greenville District, South Carolinaxix.
    5. The 1778 deed in Bedford County, Virgina in which William Mullikin[Mullican] and wife Nancy, William Handy and wife Elizabeth, and John White and wife Lucy sell land belonging to Robert Allen, decdxx. Nancy, Elizabeth, and Lucy identified as daughters of Robert Allen.
    6. The 1770 Will of Robert Allen in Bedford County, Virginia list daughters Betty[Elizabeth], Anny[Nancy Ann], and Lucy, and son-in-law William Handy is one of executors.
    7. In 1786 Thomas Mullican married Milley Routon in Bedford County, Virginia, and security for Thomas is William Mullicanxxi.
    8. In 1787 William Mullican and wife Ann sell land in Bedford County, Virginiaxxii.

    It is clear from our research and using "the preponderance-of-the-evidence principle" that William Mullican must be the father of John and William Mullican found on Mountain Creek in Warren County, Tennesssee. There is interaction of William Jr. and William Sr, and also association in South Carolina with Brister and Webb families later found in Warren County, Tennessee. Also if Nancy Ann Allen is the ancestor of John and William on Mountain Creek it appears unlikely that two Mullicans could have married a Nancy Ann Allen. There is no association of the Mullicans thought to be part of the family with a John Mullican of proper age in Kentucky, South Carolina, Tennessee, or Virginia.

    1. WILLIAM MULLICAN1 b ca 1741 m Bedford Co., VA ca 1762 Nancy Ann Allen b ca Brunswick Co, VA dau of Robert Allen and ______ _____.

    William we can surmise was a farmer as he was a land owner in Bedford Co., VA, Greenville Dist, SC, and in Kentucky. The land of his father-in-law was on Buffalo Creek in Bedford County, and the land he sold in was on Orrix Creek in Bedford County. Buffalo Creek and Orrix Creek are close together, and on Eastside of Bedford County near the Campbell County border. belogHe appears on the Bedford County Tax lists from 1782 to 1786xxiii. In 1782 he was taxed on two horses, and in 1783-1786 he was taxed on 3 horses and 8 to 9 male cattle. He must have moved from Bedford County in 1786 or 1787 to Greenville District, South Carolina. He is listed on the 1790 and 1800 Census of Greenville District, South Carolina with neighbors James Webb, Jesse Webb, Joel Webb, and John Vickers. In 1791 he purchased from William Floid 50 acres of land.xxiv It appears that the Mullican's lived in the Horse Creek area of Greenville District, South Carolina. Horse Creek is located in Southern part of Greenville County, South Carolina, and South of Town of Fork Shoals. It runs south then curves to the east into Reedy River near the Northern border of Laurens County. Horse Creek is also just to the east of the Anderson (old Pendleton District) County line. On 13 Mar 1807 he and wife Anny sold 360 acres of land on Horse Creek, Waters of Reedy River, Greenville District, to Strawder Shumate for $400.00.xxv The 360 acres was bordered by land of Thomas Mullican, Johnathan Dewece, William Davenport, Hullett Sullivant, William McCulla, and John Chandler.

    William probably moved at this time to Casey County, Kentucky as he is listed on 1807 Casey County Tax list with two white males over 16 years of age as William Sr.xxvi Also listed was his son, William Mullican with one white male over 16. He is found on the Casey County Tax list through 1811. In 1808 William Jr and Solomon Mullican are listed with him, and in 1809 James and Solomon Mullican are listed with him. Since William Jr is not found on 1809 Tax list we can assume that he has now moved probably to Warren County, Tennessee. William Sr is listed on the 1810 Census of Casey County, Kentucky with one white male under 10; one white male over 45; one white female 10-16; and one white female over 45. In 1811 he is on Casey County Tax lists with his sons James and Solomon Mullican. In 1812 he purchased 100 acres of land on Three Knoblick Creek in Casey County from Samuel and Milly Coleman.xxvii By 1813 he was in Warren County, Tennessee as he signed the petition to change the voting place to Pine Creek along with his sons William Mullican Jr and John Mullican.xxviii Then in 1814 we find him on the Lincoln County, Kentucky Tax list with 40 acres of land.xxix Also on 30 May 1814 as William Mulakin and wife Ann of Lincoln County sold for $400.00 land on Three Knoblick Creek in Casey County to William Hanna.xxx He is not found on the 1815 Tax list of Lincoln County, but his son James Mulakin is listed. He is on the 1816 and 1818 Lincoln County Tax lists. We have found no record of him after 1818, and he probably died in 1818-1820.

    Nancy Ann Allen Mullican is first found in records in the will of Robert Allen as one of his three daughters.xxxi Robert appears to have been a long time resident of Southside Virginia as he is first found in Brunswick County, then in Lunenburg County when it was formed from Brunswick, and then in Bedford County after it was formed from Lunenburg. She seems to have preferred the name Anny as the only time she is listed as Nancy was when her fathers land was sold.xxxii In that deed her sister was listed as Elizabeth, and not by the nickname Betsey.

On 4 May 1791 he purchased 35 acres of land on Horse Creek in Greenville District from Jesse Chandler.xxxiv This land adjoined land of Jesse Chandler and William Mullican. Then on 20 Jan 1801 he purchased 110 acres of land on Horse Creek of Reedy River from Moses Lingo.xxxv This land was orginally granted to Jesse Chandler. Witnesses to this deed were William Mullican and Warrick Bristo. Thomas is listed on the 1810 Census of Greenville District with 4 white males under 10; 2 white males 10-16: 1 white male 16-26: 1 white male over 45: 1 white female under 10: 1 white female 10-16: 2 white female 16-26; and one white female 26-45. On 21 June 1816 he and wife Melg sold 60 acres of land on Horse Creek to Douglas Childers.xxxvi This land bordered Thomas Brister, John Chandler, Sr, Lenus Rice, and Thomas Mullican. Witnesses to the deed were Richard R. Mullican and Thomas Mullican Jr. Then on 9 Feb 1818 he sold 291 acres of land on Horse Creek to Joseph McCullough.xxxvii This was apparently all of his land owned at that time as it included the plantation he now lives on. We can surmise that in 1818 Thomas moved from Greenville District. This seems to be further confirmed by the fact that in Mar 1817 Milly Mullican was granted her letter of dismissal by Fork Shoals Baptist Church.xxxviii On the membership lists Milly Mullican is listed below a - - lly Mullican.xxxix Thomas was also a member of Fork Shoals Baptist Church as on 11 Nov 1826 as a former member he was restored to membership. The abstractor of the church minutes added a note that "he may also have been dismissed at the same time."xl Fork Shoals Baptist Church is located in southern Greenville County, South Carolina just off McKelvey Road [Hwy 154], eight miles southwest of Fountain Inn and ten miles southeast of Piedmont.xli The first surviving minutes of this church start in 1814. South Carolina Baptist Historian think that Fork Shoals Baptist Church was formerly Horse Creek Baptist Church, as the first appearance of name Fork Shoals is in 1799 and the final appearance of Horse Creek Church was in 1798.

William Mullican was a farmer, and appears to have moved with his father to South Carolina about 1787. On 10 Mar 1791 he purchased for 100 pounds 240 acres of land on Horse Creek, Greenville District, South Carolina from Joseph Dunklin.xliii This land was bordered by the land of Jesse Chandler. He was still living in Greenville District on 26 Jan 1792 when he appeared in court as witness to deed for his father.xliv He may have moved to North Carolina for a few years as his son, William, on 1850 census says he was born in North Carolina. We do not know if his son gave the information to the census taker, or if it was a neighbor or some other person. If he did then he was back in South Carolina by 1797. On 29 May 1797 he purchased for 40 pounds 300 acres of land from Joseph Webb[Joel Webb] on Seneca River in Washington District of South Carolina.xlv This land was bordered by the land of James Chandler and Isham Irby. On 5 August 1798 he sold 240 acres of this land for 50 pounds to John Russel.xlvi The deed describes the land as being on Northside of Keowee River. William signed with an "X" as his mark. On 4 November 1797 as William Millican Jr of Pendleton District he sold his livestock to his father in Greenville District.xlvii He is in the 1800 Pendleton District, SC census with 3 white males under 10, 1 white male 26 to 45, 2 white females under 10, and 1 white female 26 to 45. He was still in Pendleton District in 1801 when he helped inventory the estate of George Hoge.xlviii By 1805 he is in Lincoln County, Kentucky as he is on Tax List with one white male over 21 and two horses.xlix In the same tax district were Jesse, Joel, and Townsend Webb. He is also on the 1806 Lincoln County Tax List with one white male, three horses, and 200 acres of land on Knoblick Creek.l In 1806 part of Lincoln County including Knoblick Creek was formed into Casey County, Kentucky. He is listed as William Mullican, Jr on the 1807 and 1808 Tax Lists of Casey County with four horses and 100 acres of land on Knoblick Creek with his father as William Mullican SR. In 1808 Solomon Mullican is also listed on the tax lists.li We feel he moved from Casey County in 1808-1809 to Warren County, Tennessee as on 17 September 1810 in he had his occupant claim of 177 acres of land surveyed on Mountain Creek adjoining James Webb.lii He, his brother, John Mullican, Elias, James Jr & Sr, and Julias Webb is listed on the 1812 Warren County Tax list in Richard Cantrell's District.liii Also in same district was. On 6 April 1813 he entered 60 acres of land on dry fork of Mountain Creek in Warren County. The land, which included said Mullican's spring, was surveyed on 17 October 1813 with James Webb and William Mullican as survey chain carriers.liv Also in 1813 he, brother John, and their father, William, signed a petition as citizens living in extreme Northeast corner of Warren County to move voting place to Pine Creeklv [in present DeKalb Co.] He entered 12 acres of land on 12 October 1814 on waters of Mountain Creek.lvi The land was surveyed on 8 September 1815, and survey chain carriers were James Webb and William Mullican. He entered two tract of land in 1824 for 82 acres and 50 acres.lvii In 1825 and 1826 he entered two tracts of land of 50 acres each.lviii The 1825 and 1826 entries joined land of Jonathan Parris on Mountain Creek. He also entered seven acres of land in 1826 which joined his 60 acre tract he lived on, his 12 acre tract, and land he purchased from Enoch Anderson, James Webb, and Thomas Harper.lix In 1828 he entered 30 acres of land on waters of Collins River, and the 30 acres begin on beginning corner of tract John G. Mullican now lives so as to include the old 30 acre tract said mullican now lives on.lx He also added to his land holdings in 1828 by purchasing 50 acres from Jonathan Davis.lxi The land was on both sides of Mountain Creek. The land begin a few poles of the Baptist Meeting House, and joined Jonathan Parris's lower 100 acre survey.

    William and his wife, Wilmouth, were on the 1812-1816 membership list.lxii of the Old Bildad Baptist Church on Sink Creek in present day DeKalb County, Tennessee Also on the same list are Allen Mullican, Jane Mullican, Julius Webb, and Hannah Webb. William and Wilmouth may have moved
    Their membership to Old Bildad's sister church, Concord Baptist Church, after it was established in 1814. Concord was located south of Mountain Creek in Warren County, and may have been the church mentioned in the 1828 survey of Williams's. Old Bildad and Concord held strong beliefs in predestination, and neither had a Sunday School or musical instruments. They would have a preaching service only once a month; lasting two to three hours, including the singing which was very slow.lxiii When William's relationship with the Baptist Church begin is not exactly known, but it continued in later generations. As his grandson, John Jefferson Mullican, added a substantial wood frame room onto his log cabin for the church to meet on Jones Fork in DeKalb County. William's great grandson, Jeremiah Mullican, continued the Primitive Baptist tradition as he was a Minister.lxiv

    Rev. Ridlon states that Wilmouth Bruce was the wife of William Mullican. I have found no association of the Mullican family with the Bruce family. I first thought that William's wife may have been a Webb. It is obvious that William was close to his family, since he was close to them why would he move several times away from them. He first moves several miles away in a new county. Then he moves to another state. When his family joins him he moves to another state. There seems to be only one logical reason for these moves and that is his wife wanted to be with her family. In each of his moves the Webb family was close to him. He buys land from the Webbs, witnesses their deeds, and gives bond for them. There was a close association for there to be no relationship involved. Another indication of Webb involvement is his brother, John, purchased land from Julius Webb. Then there is the William Mullican appointed as appraiser of the estate of Thomas Townsendlxv, and Townsend was the father of Didama Townsend the wife of of Jesse Webb.lxvi Jesse and his son, Townsend Webb, were in Kentucky with William Mullican. John's son, John, named one of his daughters, Didama Mullican. Per Tommy Webb, DeKalb County Historian, Julius Webb had a sister Didama Webb that married James Webblxvii the neighbor of William, and of course Jesse Webb's wife was Didama Townsend. The family Bible of Jeremiah Mullican, grandson of John S. Mullican and great grandson of William, has William marrying Willie Bruce. This is from copy made by Rock House Chapter, D.A.R., Sparta, Tennessee. This copy also has William's brother, John, marrying Bettie Bruce. This information was from the second page of the Bible.

    In 1960's I copied the original Bible of Jeremiah Mullican which was owned by Ms. Florence Williams, Dry Valley, Cookeville, Tennessee. The flyleaf on the Bible was dated 1893. In this Bible there was no mention of William Mullican and his wife. I also have portions of the original bible of John Jefferson Mullican, son of John S. Mullican, and it does not mention William or his wife. It is obvious that there is no clearcut evidence as to the surname of William's wife. Later I found the will of Elisha Estes in Roane Co., TN. Elisha made his will on 6 Sep 1818 and probated 9 Mar/ 1819 in his will he names daughters, Wilmoth Mulliken; Jenney Neighbor; Susanna Eastes; Nany Webb, Elizabeth Crumbles and Mary Brister.lxviii Elisha Estes lived in Greenville District, South Carolina on Horse Creek near the Mullicans and this is time frame William would have married.lxix

    The landholdings of William and the inventory that follows indicates that he was a farmer as was the majority of the men in his neighborhood. We can see from the inventory that he raised corn, oats, owned hogs and cattle. His home was probably made of logs that he had cleared from his land to farm.

    William was dead by 24 March 1851 when the inventory of his personal property was taken.lxx In his inventory was 1 clock; 4 bedsteads & furniture; 1 cupboard; 1 Bible; 1 table; 1 pothook; 1 lot of pewter; lot of stoneware; 1 pot oven with lid; 1 looking glass; 2 barrels; 1 bottle; 2 wheels; 1 check reel; 1 pot with hooks; lot of grain, 1 mans saddle; 1 lot of chain; 1 waggon; 1 froe; 1 weeding hoe; 1 wood saw; lot of shucks; 1 curry comb; 13 barrels corn; lot of fodder; stack of oats; cutting knife; lot of hoggs; 1 cow & calf; 1 pulley; 1 trunk; 1 plow; 1 bottom; 1 trough; 1 keg, $25.00 in cash; 1 note on Elias C. Barnes & James Barnes $10.00 due 25th Dec 1847 doutfull; 1 note on John G Mullican for $42.44 due 9th Sept 1840 which note is bad the maker being Insolvent he is one of the heirs 1 note on James Mullican for sixty bushell of salt. P. Mullican is dead & Insolvent; 1 witness claim for $2. considered good.

    The Inventory was taken by William C. Mullican and Samuel Fuston as administators. Buyers at the estate sale were Zebedee Edge; Sarah Green; Nancy Fuston;Thomas Womack; Wm G. Mullican, Bible; Franky Mullican; Jany Mullican; Nancy Mullican; Pinkney Mullican; T. G. Mullican; John J. Mullican; Allen Mullican; Thomas Womack; Anderson Mullican; Wm J.

    Articulate, erudite, well-sourced MULLICAN opus authored by D. Mitchell Jones (1942-2006);

    JOHN OR WILLIAM?

    Which one was the Father of John and William Mullican?

    By 1812 two brothers, John and William Mullican, were living on Mountain Creek in Warren County, Tennessee. For many years Mullican researchers have accepted as fact that the father of John and William Mullican was John Mullican. This is based on Rev. Ridlon's chapter on the Mullicans of Casey Co., KY in his book.i He states that John Mullican, SR married Nancy Ann Allen. Rev. Ridlon appears to have researched the families in his book, but it appears that most of his work on Casey Co., KY Mullicans was by oral tradition. It appears that his major informant was Polly Stanburry granddaughter of Solomon Mullican b 1784 of Casey Co., KY. After this John Mullican Rev. Ridlon's work appears very accurate.

    Rev. Ridlon's lists the family of John Mullican, SR as:

    John Mullican m Nancy Ann Allen:

    1. Thomas b bef [1763]
    2. William b [1769 VA] m1st Wilmoth Bruce m2nd Elizabeth Fuson m3rd Elizabeth Smith m4th Franky Barnes.
    3. . John b [7 March 1772 VA] m1st Mary Bruce m2nd Nancy Tarwatter.
    4. Ning b [ca 1765-1784].
    5. Nancy b [1775 VA] m John Vickers
    6. Sally b [ca 1784-1800] m. William Carr. Lived Kentucky and Alabama.
    7. Solomon b 1 Sept 1784 [VA] d 17 Nov 1871 Casey Co., KY m Nancy Ridgeway.
    8. James b [ca 1788] m _______ Lamb. Moved to Indiana

    Family tradition can be very helpful in researching our family lines, but if it is not correct then it can lead us astray. This then causes us to waste much of our research time looking for the wrong ancestor. This is true on the two Mullican brothers in Warren County. It is important to evaluate family tradition just as we do the records that we find. In family tradition if the event did not occur during the lifetime of the person giving the information the researcher should question the accuracy of any statement. I have found that an individual is fairly accurate through their grandparents, but after that it can be very inaccurate. But all family tradition can give us clues to look for in our research.

    I have found that we find very few records that state a direct ancestry. This is especially true in researching families of the Upper Cumberland area. Most of our ancestors did not leave wills, and our only hope is an exhaustive search of all the available records. We also must examine with the same detail the records of associates, neighbors, and potential relatives of our known ancestors. We then have to take the pieces of evidence that we obtain and analyze them to fit them into a pattern that can provide us with the answer to our problem.

    In researching my mother's surname of Mullican I spent many years in looking for a John Mullican in Virginia and other states. I kept ignoring the principle that the answer to the problem is the ancestor himself. When I conducted detailed research in the area where John and William Mullican lived and died, I started to form a different opinion than what Rev. Ridlon had determined.

    KEY RESEARCH FINDINGS IN KENTUCKY AND TENNESSEE:

    1. John and William Mullican first appear together in Warren County, Tennessee on the 1812 Tax list in Richard Cantrell's District. Also in this district were Elias, James Jr. & Sr, and Julias Webb.
    2. In the 1813 petition of citizens living in extreme Northeast corner of Warren County to move the voting place to Pine Creek are the names of John Mullican, William Mullican, Jr., and William Mullican. At this time both of the Mullican brothers had sons named John and William, but none of them were old enough to vote.
    3. Known associates of the Mullicans were Allens, Bristers (Bristows}, Lambs, Vickers, and Webbs.
    4. The 1807 Tax List of Casey County, Kentucky had a William Mullican & William Mullican, Sr living on Knoblick Creek.ii The 1808 Tax List also had a William Mullican, Jr., William Mullican, Sr., and Solomon Mullican. There were no other Mullicans. There was also a deed from Samuel Coleman & Milly Coleman to William Mullican for 100 acres of land on Knoblick Creek.iii The 1813 tax list had Soloman Mullican with 200 acres of land purchased of William Mullican. Also found was a deed from William Mulakin & Ann his wife to William Hanna for land on Knoblick Creek.iv Also found were court records showing William Mullican filing suit against Samuel Coleman and Jonathan Lamb.v
    5. Casey County, Kentucky was formed from Lincoln County in 1806. A search of Lincoln County records found a William Mullican on Knoblick Creek on the 1805 and 1806vi Tax lists along with Jesse, Joel, and Townsend Webb.
    6. William Mullican was also found on the 1814, 1816, and 1818 Tax lists of Lincoln County, Kentucky.

    At this point in my research I had a formed the theory that the father of the two Mullican brothers was William Mullican, and not John Mullican. Research in South Carolina and Virginia further strengthed this theory.

    KEY RESEARCH FINDINGS IN SOUTH CAROLINA AND VIRGINA:

    1. William Mullicanvii, William Mullican, Jrviii, Thomas Mullicanix, and Ninimon Mullicanx all own land on Horse Creek in Greenville District, South Carolina. Land of Thomas and William is adjoining. William Mullican, Jr. is witness to the deed of William Mullican, William Mullican witness to deed of Thomas Mullicanxi, and James Mullican witness to deed when William Mullican sells his land in 1807.
    2. In 1787 &1807 the wife of William Mullican is Ann or Anneyxii, in 1813 the wife of Thomas Mullican is Milleyxiii, and in 1813 the wife of Ninemon is Susannahxiv.
    3. William Mullican, Jr. purchased land in Pendleton District, South Carolina from Joel Webbxv. William Mullican witness to deed of Joel Webbxvi. William Brister and Nancy Vick[Vickers] witnesses to deed of Joel Webbxvii. Benjamin Brister land borders Ninimon Mullican, and Benjamin Brister witness to deed of Ninimonxviii.
    4. In 1799 William Millican, Jr [Mullican] of Pendleton District, South Carolina sold his livestock to William Millican [Mullican], Sr of Greenville District, South Carolinaxix.
    5. The 1778 deed in Bedford County, Virgina in which William Mullikin[Mullican] and wife Nancy, William Handy and wife Elizabeth, and John White and wife Lucy sell land belonging to Robert Allen, decdxx. Nancy, Elizabeth, and Lucy identified as daughters of Robert Allen.
    6. The 1770 Will of Robert Allen in Bedford County, Virginia list daughters Betty[Elizabeth], Anny[Nancy Ann], and Lucy, and son-in-law William Handy is one of executors.
    7. In 1786 Thomas Mullican married Milley Routon in Bedford County, Virginia, and security for Thomas is William Mullicanxxi.
    8. In 1787 William Mullican and wife Ann sell land in Bedford County, Virginiaxxii.

    It is clear from our research and using "the preponderance-of-the-evidence principle" that William Mullican must be the father of John and William Mullican found on Mountain Creek in Warren County, Tennesssee. There is interaction of William Jr. and William Sr, and also association in South Carolina with Brister and Webb families later found in Warren County, Tennessee. Also if Nancy Ann Allen is the ancestor of John and William on Mountain Creek it appears unlikely that two Mullicans could have married a Nancy Ann Allen. There is no association of the Mullicans thought to be part of the family with a John Mullican of proper age in Kentucky, South Carolina, Tennessee, or Virginia.

    1. WILLIAM MULLICAN1 b ca 1741 m Bedford Co., VA ca 1762 Nancy Ann Allen b ca Brunswick Co, VA dau of Robert Allen and ______ _____.

    William we can surmise was a farmer as he was a land owner in Bedford Co., VA, Greenville Dist, SC, and in Kentucky. The land of his father-in-law was on Buffalo Creek in Bedford County, and the land he sold in was on Orrix Creek in Bedford County. Buffalo Creek and Orrix Creek are close together, and on Eastside of Bedford County near the Campbell County border. belogHe appears on the Bedford County Tax lists from 1782 to 1786xxiii. In 1782 he was taxed on two horses, and in 1783-1786 he was taxed on 3 horses and 8 to 9 male cattle. He must have moved from Bedford County in 1786 or 1787 to Greenville District, South Carolina. He is listed on the 1790 and 1800 Census of Greenville District, South Carolina with neighbors James Webb, Jesse Webb, Joel Webb, and John Vickers. In 1791 he purchased from William Floid 50 acres of land.xxiv It appears that the Mullican's lived in the Horse Creek area of Greenville District, South Carolina. Horse Creek is located in Southern part of Greenville County, South Carolina, and South of Town of Fork Shoals. It runs south then curves to the east into Reedy River near the Northern border of Laurens County. Horse Creek is also just to the east of the Anderson (old Pendleton District) County line. On 13 Mar 1807 he and wife Anny sold 360 acres of land on Horse Creek, Waters of Reedy River, Greenville District, to Strawder Shumate for $400.00.xxv The 360 acres was bordered by land of Thomas Mullican, Johnathan Dewece, William Davenport, Hullett Sullivant, William McCulla, and John Chandler.

    William probably moved at this time to Casey County, Kentucky as he is listed on 1807 Casey County Tax list with two white males over 16 years of age as William Sr.xxvi Also listed was his son, William Mullican with one white male over 16. He is found on the Casey County Tax list through 1811. In 1808 William Jr and Solomon Mullican are listed with him, and in 1809 James and Solomon Mullican are listed with him. Since William Jr is not found on 1809 Tax list we can assume that he has now moved probably to Warren County, Tennessee. William Sr is listed on the 1810 Census of Casey County, Kentucky with one white male under 10; one white male over 45; one white female 10-16; and one white female over 45. In 1811 he is on Casey County Tax lists with his sons James and Solomon Mullican. In 1812 he purchased 100 acres of land on Three Knoblick Creek in Casey County from Samuel and Milly Coleman.xxvii By 1813 he was in Warren County, Tennessee as he signed the petition to change the voting place to Pine Creek along with his sons William Mullican Jr and John Mullican.xxviii Then in 1814 we find him on the Lincoln County, Kentucky Tax list with 40 acres of land.xxix Also on 30 May 1814 as William Mulakin and wife Ann of Lincoln County sold for $400.00 land on Three Knoblick Creek in Casey County to William Hanna.xxx He is not found on the 1815 Tax list of Lincoln County, but his son James Mulakin is listed. He is on the 1816 and 1818 Lincoln County Tax lists. We have found no record of him after 1818, and he probably died in 1818-1820.

    Nancy Ann Allen Mullican is first found in records in the will of Robert Allen as one of his three daughters.xxxi Robert appears to have been a long time resident of Southside Virginia as he is first found in Brunswick County, then in Lunenburg County when it was formed from Brunswick, and then in Bedford County after it was formed from Lunenburg. She seems to have preferred the name Anny as the only time she is listed as Nancy was when her fathers land was sold.xxxii In that deed her sister was listed as Elizabeth, and not by the nickname Betsey.

    2. THOMAS MULLICAN2 (William1) b ca by 1763 ?VA m 28 June 1786 Bedford Co., VA Millie Routon b ca 1765-1784. He apparently moved with his father to Greenville District, South Carolina about 1786 or 1787. On 4 May 1791 he purchased 35 acres of land on Horse Creek in Greenville District from Jesse Chandler.xxxiv This land adjoined land of Jesse Chandler and William Mullican. Then on 20 Jan 1801 he purchased 110 acres of land on Horse Creek of Reedy River from Moses Lingo.xxxv This land was orginally granted to Jesse Chandler. Witnesses to this deed were William Mullican and Warrick Bristo. Thomas is listed on the 1810 Census of Greenville District with 4 white males under 10; 2 white males 10-16: 1 white male 16-26: 1 white male over 45: 1 white female under 10: 1 white female 10-16: 2 white female 16-26; and one white female 26-45. On 21 June 1816 he and wife Melg sold 60 acres of land on Horse Creek to Douglas Childers.xxxvi This land bordered Thomas Brister, John Chandler, Sr, Lenus Rice, and Thomas Mullican. Witnesses to the deed were Richard R. Mullican and Thomas Mullican Jr. Then on 9 Feb 1818 he sold 291 acres of land on Horse Creek to Joseph McCullough.xxxvii This was apparently all of his land owned at that time as it included the plantation he now lives on. We can surmise that in 1818 Thomas moved from Greenville District. This seems to be further confirmed by the fact that in Mar 1817 Milly Mullican was granted her letter of dismissal by Fork Shoals Baptist Church.xxxviii On the membership lists Milly Mullican is listed below a - - lly Mullican.xxxix Thomas was also a member of Fork Shoals Baptist Church as on 11 Nov 1826 as a former member he was restored to membership. The abstractor of the church minutes added a note that "he may also have been dismissed at the same time."xl Fork Shoals Baptist Church is located in southern Greenville County, South Carolina just off McKelvey Road [Hwy 154], eight miles southwest of Fountain Inn and ten miles southeast of Piedmont.xli The first surviving minutes of this church start in 1814. South Carolina Baptist Historian think that Fork Shoals Baptist Church was formerly Horse Creek Baptist Church, as the first appearance of name Fork Shoals is in 1799 and the final appearance of Horse Creek Church was in 1798.

    3. (ii)WILLIAM MULLICAN2 (William1) b ca 1769 VA d bet 1850 & 24 Mar 1851xlii Warren Co., TN m1st ca 1790 SC Wilmoth Estes m2nd widow Elizabeth Fuson m3rd Elizabeth Smith m4th widow Franky Barnes b ca 1761 VA. William Mullican was a farmer, and appears to have moved with his father to South Carolina about 1787. On 10 Mar 1791 he purchased for 100 pounds 240 acres of land on Horse Creek, Greenville District, South Carolina from Joseph Dunklin.xliii This land was bordered by the land of Jesse Chandler. He was still living in Greenville District on 26 Jan 1792 when he appeared in court as witness to deed for his father.xliv He may have moved to North Carolina for a few years as his son, William, on 1850 census says he was born in North Carolina. We do not know if his son gave the information to the census taker, or if it was a neighbor or some other person. If he did then he was back in South Carolina by 1797. On 29 May 1797 he purchased for 40 pounds 300 acres of land from Joseph Webb[Joel Webb] on Seneca River in Washington District of South Carolina.xlv This land was bordered by the land of James Chandler and Isham Irby. On 5 August 1798 he sold 240 acres of this land for 50 pounds to John Russel.xlvi The deed describes the land as being on Northside of Keowee River. William signed with an "X" as his mark. On 4 November 1797 as William Millican Jr of Pendleton District he sold his livestock to his father in Greenville District.xlvii He is in the 1800 Pendleton District, SC census with 3 white males under 10, 1 white male 26 to 45, 2 white females under 10, and 1 white female 26 to 45. He was still in Pendleton District in 1801 when he helped inventory the estate of George Hoge.xlviii By 1805 he is in Lincoln County, Kentucky as he is on Tax List with one white male over 21 and two horses.xlix In the same tax district were Jesse, Joel, and Townsend Webb. He is also on the 1806 Lincoln County Tax List with one white male, three horses, and 200 acres of land on Knoblick Creek.l In 1806 part of Lincoln County including Knoblick Creek was formed into Casey County, Kentucky. He is listed as William Mullican, Jr on the 1807 and 1808 Tax Lists of Casey County with four horses and 100 acres of land on Knoblick Creek with his father as William Mullican SR. In 1808 Solomon Mullican is also listed on the tax lists.li We feel he moved from Casey County in 1808-1809 to Warren County, Tennessee as on 17 September 1810 in he had his occupant claim of 177 acres of land surveyed on Mountain Creek adjoining James Webb.lii He, his brother, John Mullican, Elias, James Jr & Sr, and Julias Webb is listed on the 1812 Warren County Tax list in Richard Cantrell's District.liii Also in same district was. On 6 April 1813 he entered 60 acres of land on dry fork of Mountain Creek in Warren County. The land, which included said Mullican's spring, was surveyed on 17 October 1813 with James Webb and William Mullican as survey chain carriers.liv Also in 1813 he, brother John, and their father, William, signed a petition as citizens living in extreme Northeast corner of Warren County to move voting place to Pine Creeklv [in present DeKalb Co.] He entered 12 acres of land on 12 October 1814 on waters of Mountain Creek.lvi The land was surveyed on 8 September 1815, and survey chain carriers were James Webb and William Mullican. He entered two tract of land in 1824 for 82 acres and 50 acres.lvii In 1825 and 1826 he entered two tracts of land of 50 acres each.lviii The 1825 and 1826 entries joined land of Jonathan Parris on Mountain Creek. He also entered seven acres of land in 1826 which joined his 60 acre tract he lived on, his 12 acre tract, and land he purchased from Enoch Anderson, James Webb, and Thomas Harper.lix In 1828 he entered 30 acres of land on waters of Collins River, and the 30 acres begin on beginning corner of tract John G. Mullican now lives so as to include the old 30 acre tract said mullican now lives on.lx He also added to his land holdings in 1828 by purchasing 50 acres from Jonathan Davis.lxi The land was on both sides of Mountain Creek. The land begin a few poles of the Baptist Meeting House, and joined Jonathan Parris's lower 100 acre survey.

    William and his wife, Wilmouth, were on the 1812-1816 membership list.lxii of the Old Bildad Baptist Church on Sink Creek in present day DeKalb County, Tennessee Also on the same list are Allen Mullican, Jane Mullican, Julius Webb, and Hannah Webb. William and Wilmouth may have moved
    Their membership to Old Bildad's sister church, Concord Baptist Church, after it was established in 1814. Concord was located south of Mountain Creek in Warren County, and may have been the church mentioned in the 1828 survey of Williams's. Old Bildad and Concord held strong beliefs in predestination, and neither had a Sunday School or musical instruments. They would have a preaching service only once a month; lasting two to three hours, including the singing which was very slow.lxiii When William's relationship with the Baptist Church begin is not exactly known, but it continued in later generations. As his grandson, John Jefferson Mullican, added a substantial wood frame room onto his log cabin for the church to meet on Jones Fork in DeKalb County. William's great grandson, Jeremiah Mullican, continued the Primitive Baptist tradition as he was a Minister.lxiv

    Rev. Ridlon states that Wilmouth Bruce was the wife of William Mullican. I have found no association of the Mullican family with the Bruce family. I first thought that William's wife may have been a Webb. It is obvious that William was close to his family, since he was close to them why would he move several times away from them. He first moves several miles away in a new county. Then he moves to another state. When his family joins him he moves to another state. There seems to be only one logical reason for these moves and that is his wife wanted to be with her family. In each of his moves the Webb family was close to him. He buys land from the Webbs, witnesses their deeds, and gives bond for them. There was a close association for there to be no relationship involved. Another indication of Webb involvement is his brother, John, purchased land from Julius Webb. Then there is the William Mullican appointed as appraiser of the estate of Thomas Townsendlxv, and Townsend was the father of Didama Townsend the wife of of Jesse Webb.lxvi Jesse and his son, Townsend Webb, were in Kentucky with William Mullican. John's son, John, named one of his daughters, Didama Mullican. Per Tommy Webb, DeKalb County Historian, Julius Webb had a sister Didama Webb that married James Webblxvii the neighbor of William, and of course Jesse Webb's wife was Didama Townsend. The family Bible of Jeremiah Mullican, grandson of John S. Mullican and great grandson of William, has William marrying Willie Bruce. This is from copy made by Rock House Chapter, D.A.R., Sparta, Tennessee. This copy also has William's brother, John, marrying Bettie Bruce. This information was from the second page of the Bible.

    In 1960's I copied the original Bible of Jeremiah Mullican which was owned by Ms. Florence Williams, Dry Valley, Cookeville, Tennessee. The flyleaf on the Bible was dated 1893. In this Bible there was no mention of William Mullican and his wife. I also have portions of the original bible of John Jefferson Mullican, son of John S. Mullican, and it does not mention William or his wife. It is obvious that there is no clearcut evidence as to the surname of William's wife. Later I found the will of Elisha Estes in Roane Co., TN. Elisha made his will on 6 Sep 1818 and probated 9 Mar/ 1819 in his will he names daughters, Wilmoth Mulliken; Jenney Neighbor; Susanna Eastes; Nany Webb, Elizabeth Crumbles and Mary Brister.lxviii Elisha Estes lived in Greenville District, South Carolina on Horse Creek near the Mullicans and this is time frame William would have married.lxix

    The landholdings of William and the inventory that follows indicates that he was a farmer as was the majority of the men in his neighborhood. We can see from the inventory that he raised corn, oats, owned hogs and cattle. His home was probably made of logs that he had cleared from his land to farm.

    William was dead by 24 March 1851 when the inventory of his personal property was taken.lxx In his inventory was 1 clock; 4 bedsteads & furniture; 1 cupboard; 1 Bible; 1 table; 1 pothook; 1 lot of pewter; lot of stoneware; 1 pot oven with lid; 1 looking glass; 2 barrels; 1 bottle; 2 wheels; 1 check reel; 1 pot with hooks; lot of grain, 1 mans saddle; 1 lot of chain; 1 waggon; 1 froe; 1 weeding hoe; 1 wood saw; lot of shucks; 1 curry comb; 13 barrels corn; lot of fodder; stack of oats; cutting knife; lot of hoggs; 1 cow & calf; 1 pulley; 1 trunk; 1 plow; 1 bottom; 1 trough; 1 keg, $25.00 in cash; 1 note on Elias C. Barnes & James Barnes $10.00 due 25th Dec 1847 doutfull; 1 note on John G Mullican for $42.44 due 9th Sept 1840 which note is bad the maker being Insolvent he is one of the heirs 1 note on James Mullican for sixty bushell of salt. P. Mullican is dead & Insolvent; 1 witness claim for $2. considered good.

    The Inventory was taken by William C. Mullican and Samuel Fuston as administators. Buyers at the estate sale were Zebedee Edge; Sarah Green; Nancy Fuston;Thomas Womack; Wm G. Mullican, Bible; Franky Mullican; Jany Mullican; Nancy Mullican; Pinkney Mullican; T. G. Mullican; John J. Mullican; Allen Mullican; Thomas Womack; Anderson Mullican; Wm J.

    If the note on John RICE below is my John Rice and I think that it is, then John came to America abt 1745/46, if Louvisa's birth is in Ireland in 1745.
    John was a member of the 1st court of Lunenburg and served in the Lunenburg Militia in 1747. Grantland Rice is a relative. If Grantland is a relative then Louvisa must have a brother

    My info on Louvisa came from the book "The Descendants of Thomas A. & Louvisa Rice Womack" by Abner Womack McMinnville TN. I have never been able to find a sibling for Louvisa. Was Louvisa a only child?

    Barbara,

    The information on Peter Watkins and Ann Nuthall comes from my uncle, Joel S. Watkins, Jr. This is the same Joel S. Watkins that e-mailed Hays Watkins concerning the Kentucky Watkins. Joel has done much research on his ancestry and all of my research has been built on top of his.
    Peter Watkins was born ca. 1670 in Wales. He died before 10 Feb 1695 in Talbot Co., MD. He married before 10 Nov 1690 in Talbot Co., MD, to Ann, daughter of Elias and Elizabeth (Beckwith) Nuthall. Peter and Ann Watkins were the parents of three children:

    Big news from the Byars dna project.

    Recent dna results prove that James (Henry) Byars of Hanover Co, VA is NOT the ancestor of Nathan b 1749, William who married Sarah Doggett or William who married Elizabeth Bedford. DNA from a proven descendant of James through his documented son Capt John, matches with dna from a descendant of the Byars who went from Granville Co into West Tennessee. NO CONNECTION to old Nathan, William or William

    Majorie Stewart Tucker writes,

    Nathan Byars was born in 1749, Granville Co., NC, d. Aug. 18, 1846, Spartanburg District, SC. He m.1st. after 1772 (date of Burgess Harrelson's will), Drucilla Harrelson, b. ca 1743-50, d. probably ca 1818, dau. of Burgess Harrelson and wife, Elizabeth.

    The will of Burgess Harrelson was made Oct. 9, 1772, in Orange Co., NC. In it he named his daughter, Drucilla Harrelson and gave her two hundred acres of land, indicating that Drucilla was not married when the will was written.

    Nathan Byars is buried in the Cowpens National Park, Cherokee County, SC. His tombstone reads "In Memory of Nathan Byars Sen. who died Aug. 18, 1846 in his 97th year." Note - Cherokee Co., SC was formed 1897 from Union, York, and Spartanburg Counties.

    Nathan Byars served as a Private from North Carolina during the Revolutionary War. On May 22, 1778, he took the State Oath of Allegiance according to the Acts of the Assembly passed at New Bern the 15th day of November, 1777, in the second year of the Independence of the State of North Carolina, being one of seventy- seven persons in the Island Creek District so doing. Among this number was also one William Byars, who may have been his brother.

    While a resident of Caswell County, North Carolina, Nathan Byars was drafted three times and served three months each tour. He then volunteered a tour of three months and went south against the Indians. He was stationed principally at Hillsborough, NC. On Dec. 31, 1844, at the advanced age of ninety-five years, when he applied for his Military Pension, Nathan was unable to remember the exact date of his birth or the exact dates of his service.

    He did remember that his father told him that he was a small boy at the time of Gen. Braddock's defeat (1755, during the French and Indian War). He recollected that he was in the service at the time the battle was fought at the Eutaw Springs (Sept. 1781) and at King's Mountain (1780) and at the time of Gates' defeat (Aug. 16, 1780, Camden, SC), though he did not participate in these battles.

    Nathan's application for pension was supported by an affidavit submitted by Jesse and Rev. Drury, two sons of his neighbor, Richard Scruggs. His application was also supported by Philip Davis and Sarah (Davis) Wadkins, who made oath that their brother, Jacob Davis, was drafted at the same time and that they served the tour together. Sarah Davis was married to William Watkins, whose brother, Daniel Watkins, Sr. married Nathan's daughter, Elizabeth Byars. She stated that she was raised and lived in NC until she was twelve or fourteen years of age and that she lived near Nathan Byars.

    The following is a copy of the interrogation of Nathan Byars when he applied for his Military Pension, Dec. 31, 1844:

    his mark Nathan Byars

    R. Bowdin, Judge of the Court of Chancery

    Nathan Byars engaged in many land transactions, both buying and selling in Granville Co., NC from 1780 through 1784, yet in Caswell Co., he bought and sold land from 1781 through 1784. It seems likely the family moved to Rutherford Co., NC about 1783-85.

    Nathan purchased 200 acres from James Webb April 10, 1783, located on Main Broad River in Rutherford County. A few years later, in 1795, he sold a part of it to William Dobbins. On Apr. 13, 1802 he sold lands secured by title bond and gave possession to Arthur Clark the whole of 8 plantations containing 1,250 acres. Either he or his son, Nathan, Jr. bought land in Spartanburg Co., SC beginning in 1817.

    About 1801 Nathan and Drucilla's marriage began to fall apart. Quoting from the Haralson - Harrelson Family History, compiled by Danny K. Haralson, page 47 - "Nathan had been living with Delphy
    Logan since 1801." No source was cited as proof for this statement. Delphy Logan became Nathan's second wife, Oct. 8, 1819.

    In Delphy's application for a widow's pension, made Dec. 29, 1853, she stated that she and Nathan were not married prior to Jan. 2, 1800. Drucilla filed a petition for a legal separation to the
    North Carolina General Assembly October 11, 1808. The following is a copy of the document:

    To the Honorable the General Assembly of the State of North Carolina

    The humble petition of Drusilla Byars of Rutherford County in the said State wife of Nathan Byars of the same County she with, that your petitioner when married was worth a considerable estate, that her said husband had little or no property; that your petitioner lived in harmony with her husband for a great many years in which time she had 10 children during all which time ever since she hath used her best endeavor to improve their property and support their family, did use unremitted exertions to render her said husband happy. That about seven years ago her husband did withdraw his affection from her and did refuse giving her any protection or support and did convince her to leave his house, she repeate and returned and was often obliged to abandon his house to resort to the cold charity of the world for substenance.

    Your petitioner on representing these facts to the Court of Equity of Morgan District had a decree was made in her favor, but she finds no decree can be availing until she is authorized to hold any property she may acquire as she can find no friend who feels sufficient interest to induce him to act as a trustee, and to secure and defend any property to which she might be entitled.

    Now your petitioner humbly prays that an act of Assembly be made authorizing her to hold property which she may acquire and to maintain and defend suit in her own name.

    Petition of Drusilla Byars of Rutherford County
    Praying a law be passed securing to her such property as she may herself later acquire.

    In Senate November 24th 1808
    Read and referred to the committee on Divorce and Alimony E/e

    By order M. Stokes, Clk Mr. Pickens

    Granted in House of Commons 24 November 1808 read orders at by the Senate
    By order
    Honorable H.B.

    With the help of her son-in-law, Thaddeus Dudley Walker, Drucilla received some money from Nathan. From Rutherford Co., NC Deed Book 25, page 174:

    "This indenture made this 13th day of July, 1809, between William Carson, Esq., high sheriff of the County of Rutherford, State of North Carolina, on the one part and Thaddius Walker of the County of Rutherford and the State aforesaid of the other part. Whereas by virtue of an execution issuing from the Superior Court of Burke County against Nathan Byars for the sum of fifty pounds 5/ which sum was recovered by Drucilla Byars as on record may appear."

    The following information about the early divorces and separations is from The North Carolina Genealogical Society Journal, Vol. III, No. 1, Feb. 1977, pp. 43-45:

    "Divorces and Separations Granted by Act of North Carolina Assembly from 1790-1808" by B. Ransom McBride.

    McBride gives a history of Divorce and Separation during colonial times through 1808. He says, "With the advent of liberal Jeffersonian democracy, the upward trend continued, and in the six years between 1802 and 1808, the NC Assembly had approved four more complete divorces and 116 separations." A complete listing of divorces and separations is part of the article with divorces indicated with a D. On page 45 is this entry: Byars, Prusilla, husband not named; of Rutherford Co. (1808, page 39)". Complete information for each entry is available in the Legislative Papers of North Carolina.

    According to Maurice Rasmussen (Enquirer, Vol. I, No. 4, p. 109)

    Drucilla lived with her daughter Elizabeth Watkins and was with her daughter, Nancy Walker when she died.

    Tradition says Drucilla died in 1818. Since there was no divorce, Nathan had to wait until she died before he could marry Delphy, so that may well be the year Drucilla Harrelson Byars passed away.
    Nathan and Delphy Logan were married Oct. 8, 1819, in Spartanburg Dist., SC, by Rev. Joshua Richards.

    Nathan moved from Rutherford Co., NC to the area of the Cowpens Battleground, in the Spartanburg Dist., SC, settling on the high ground separating the Suck and Little Buck Creek watersheds. About 1822 he built a cabin and cleared and fenced a field southwest of the intersection of the Island (Coulter's Ford) and Green River roads. (This info from the Report of U.S. Park Service, Gov't Study).

    Shown on the next page is a picture of the cabin that Nathan Byars built, taken April 14, 1978, courtesy of Dorothy Eubanks Hays. Even though it was recommended that the house be studied, the National Parks Service tore it down."

    In April 1826, Nathan Byars had Joseph Camp survey for him a 394 acre tract, as evidenced by the following:

    State of South Carolina

    Pursuant to a warrant from Jabez Galt, Esq., Commissioner of Locations in Spartanburgh District dated 8th of March 1826 - I have admeasured & laid out unto Nathan Byars, Senr. a Tract of Land containing three Hundred & ninety four acres Situate in Said District and on the head waters of Island, Suck & Buck Creeks including his own home & plantation, also including the Cowpen Battle Ground Bounded East by Scruggs' & Earle's Land and all other sides by unknown Lands - and hath such shape & form as above Plat represents. Surveyed this 5th day of April 1826 ___
    By me, Joseph Camp,

    Andrew Rhea
    & C.B.
    Robt. Scruggs Recorded 12th April 1826. Paid $2.00 and
    Recorded in

    Plat Book B, at page 383.

    A copy of the plat is presented on the next page, followed by a Historical Base Map of the Cowpens National Battlefield.


    The following is quoted from a Report of U.S. Park Service Gov't. Study, page 12:

    "Gov. Richard J. Manning, on examining the plat and its accompanying certificate, granted on October 2, 1826, to Nathan Byars, "his heirs and assigns," a 394-acre tract or plantation on the headwaters of Island, Suck, and Buck creeks.

    An examination of the Byars, Steadman, and McClaren plats shows that in 1826 Byars had been granted 394 acres of the 2,000 acres granted to McClaren 23 years before. McClaren had conveyed title to most of the acreage in his grants to Wilson Nesbitt, who, plagued by lawsuits, had failed to maintain and defend his title. To the west Byars' grant intruded onto the acreage granted to James Steadman in 1787 by Governor Pinckney. The parties to whom the Steadman heirs had conveyed his 2,482-acre grant were absentee owners. Although the plat prepared for Nathaniel Gist by John Gibbs in 1845 shows a conflict, there were no court challenges.

    The Court of Common Pleas for Spartanburg District issued on November 16, 1840, a writ of Five Facias in the suit of Samuel Ezell against Nathan Byars. When Byars was unable to pay the judgment, Sheriff A.C. Bomar of Spartanburg District was ordered to levy $36.60 on his goods and chattels, with interests and costs.

    To enforce the writ, Sheriff Bomar seized and taken of the Lands and Tenaments of the said Nathan Byars all that certain piece parcel and tract of land containing three Hundred Acres, more or less."

    Samuel Ezell sold the 300 acres to his son, James H. Ezell.

    *

    more.

    Nathan Byars was now left penniless, his land and home having been seized from him. On Dec. 31, 1844, he applied for a Military Pension which was repeatedly denied to him. Finally, Oct. 3, 1851, Michael Thompson wrote a letter to James E. Heath, Commissioner of Pensions, pleading emphatically for Nathan's claim to be allowed. This letter must have had a decisive effect. Of Nathan he wrote:
    "But I should reproach myself were I not to exhaust all proper means to establish what I solemnly believe to be a clear, legal and valid claim for a poor bedridden, half starved soldier of the revolution, who literally cries to me for help, to prosecute what he conceives, and what I conceive, to be his rights under the law."

    A typed copy of the Certificate issued for his claim appears on the next page. It was made retroactive to March 4, 1831 and his widow, Delphy recovered the sum. On Dec. 29, 1853, Delphy's application for the widow's pension of half-pay was executed.

    Nathan Byars had died in poverty Aug. 18, 1846 and was buried in the family graveyard behind the house and outbuildings. It would seem that he had died in obscurity, but in the late summer of 1971, descendants from all over the country gathered at his gravesite to dedicate a permanent government marker at his grave. It is reported by Clovis Byars Herring that in 1985 when she visited the cemetery the stone was in pieces and there was no sign of the DAR marker that was put there.

    It is not known when Delphy Byars was born or when she died. She is enumerated in the Census of 1850, Spartanburg District, SC:

    #1278 Delphia Bian 65 SC
    Juda Turner 36 SC male
    Simpson Russ 22 SC
    Miranda " 10 SC
    John H. " 8 SC
    Barbara " 5 SC
    Sarah " 3 SC


    According to this census record she was born in 1785, but in the Census of 1860, Spartanburg District, SC, she was living at Cowpens with the family of Robert and Delilah Martin, and was born in 1776. It is not known who the people were who were living with her. The last mention of her is in a letter which was found among the papers in Nathan's Pension File. It was written July 20, 1937 by A.H. Hiller, Executive Assistant to the Administrator, to Will Franke of Birmingham, AL. He states that in 1868 Delphy Byars was living about sixteen miles north of the Spartanburg Court House.

    Nathan Byars, was born in Granville Co., NC sometime in 1749 and, according to his pension declaration, he had no proof of his birthdate except that his father told him that he was a small boy at Braddock's defeat.

    At the time of his entry into the service, he was a resident of Caswell County, NC and was drafted for a 3-months tour of duty, serving as a Private under Captain Cunningham and Captain Forbes (?) (Forker?) in the Regiment commanded by Col. Ramsey and Major Moore. He was drafted for two additional tours of duty and later volunteered for a three-months tour. He did not remember the dates of his services; however, his declaration for pension, indicated that he was in the service `at the time of the battle of Eutah Springs, Kings Mountain, and at the time of Gates' defeat', although he did not fight in any of those battles. During the various tours of duty, Private Byars was stationed principally at Hillsborough, and adjacent counties, and, during one tour, went out against the Indians' in the western part of the State. In support of his claim for pension, two of his neighbors, Rev. Drury Scruggs, and Jesse Scruggs, attached a statement supporting the facts given by the claimant, Nathan Byars.

    Sometime just prior to, or during the Revolution, Nathan Byars was married to Drucilla Harrelson, Drucilla Harrelson born 1750, in Hanover Co., VA, daughter of Burges Harrelson and Elizabeth Green. According to a Rutherford Co., NC book 25, page 174, Nathan was ordered by the court to pay Drucilla $50.00 cash. Thought to be a divorce. After the divorce of Nathan and Drucilla, in 1799, Drucilla went to live with her daughter Elizabeth Byars Watkins in or near McMinnvile, TN. She later went to live with her daughter Nancy Byars Walker. She lived there until her death in 1816. Nathan later married Delphy Logan on October 8, 1819, and at least one, and possibly more, children were born of this marriage. Delphy Logan was born about 1779, and was married to Nathan Byars on October 8, 1819 in Spartanburg District, S. C. by Rev. Joshua Richards.

    Nathan Byars purchased 200 acres of land from James Webb on April 10,1783, located on Main Broad River in Rutherford County, NC. A few years later in 1795, part of this land was sold to Williams Dobbins {special note not included in article - William Dobbins is the 4th great-grandfather of Cecil VanDyke}. Byars moved to that area now in Cherokee County, SC about 1822, and on April 5, 1826, received a South Carolina State grant for 394 acres of land, in Spartanburg District located on the headwaters of Island, Suck and Buck creeks, part of an original grant to James Steadman. This land included that tract that is now the Cowpens National Battleground. Part of this land was sold by Byars to James H. Ezell on November 16, 1840, and on January 6, 1886, James Ezell sold part of th land, but reserved one acre, where the Cowpens Battleground monument now stands, as belonging to the Washington Light Infantry Company of Charleston, S.C. The federal government later erected the present monument on the site.

    Nathan Byars died August 18th, 1846, at the age of 97 years, and his grave is located about 1/2 mile from the battleground monument, about 11 miles west of Gaffney, Cherokee County, SC.

    Message:

    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.

In 1764, the whole of St. John's Parish, the eastern part of Granville Co., became Bute County and a small part of Northampton Go., N.C. was added to Bute, in 1766.

    Notes:

    Summary

    Abraham Estes made an amazing journey in his lifetime. His life was certainly not without adventure. He was born during a war and his father may have given his life in the Kentish Uprising. In any event, he was orphaned when he was two years old, when his mother died. Had it not been for his mother’s will, we would never be able to tie Abraham to his family, because we have never been able to find his baptism records.

    Abraham’s first wife died and we presume there were no children. If Abraham immigrated in 1673, he and his wife were married less than a year and it would be a safe bet that she died in childbirth, along with the child. He sailed for America in the middle of a second war, encountering Dutch warships on both ends of the journey.

    In 1676, in Virginia, he would have been involved in some way in Bacon’s Rebellion, likely siding with Nathaniel Bacon against the government. If so, he was probably involved in the burning of Jamestown. This may well have been America’s first civil war.

    In 1683, in Virginia, Abraham signed a petition, a free man and we know that by 1704 he owned land in King and Queen County that he purchased (or inherited), not that he received as a land grant.

    Abraham Estes died in 1720 married to Barbara Estes, but there is not one single shred of evidence to suggest that his wife’s maiden name was Barbara Brock. That surname was introduced into the family line by a novel in the 1980s wherein the author utilized Estes historical characters and built upon those characters. It also didn’t help that Abraham Jr.’s daughter, Barbara Estes married Henry Brock. Unfortunately, Barbara’s surname, listed as Brock has been copied and recopied so many times that it has entered into the realm of urban legend. Regardless of how many times the story is retold, or copied and pasted, it won’t be accepted by serious researchers until some evidence, someplace, is found. To date, there is none. I am hopeful that as more Virginia Counties chancery suits are brought online by the Virginia State Archives that in some county, someplace, a document will surface that will identify Barbara Estes’s maiden name.

    In my opinion, the most likely place to find Barbara’s surname is among the petitioners on that 1683 petition. We know her family lived in Virginia and she would have had to live local to Abraham to have met him. Her father, brothers and perhaps uncles are most likely among the petition signers. Brock is not one of the surnames. Those surnames are:

    Beverly Fleet, a noted researcher, extracted these names when transcribing the 1683 petition in the Virginia Colonial Records in the 1930s and 1940s and provided her commentary , as follows:

    Of the 66 signatures on this petition, exactly half, 33, made marks. Not so bad considering the disturbed times in England and conditions in Virginia. The comment in regard to English education is made in that, contrary to the prevailing cavalier tradition, I believe that many of these men were of Cromwellian affiliation and came to Virginia to escape the hatred at home. If they were so Cavalier, then why did they come to this Godforsaken and wild country just after the Restoration? Not that there were not a plenty of gentlemen too, but the rank and file are always in the majority so far as numbers are concerned. This petition is a protest of the people against two or three of the upper class. Would to God that these men could have known just what happened exactly 100 years after they sent in their protest.

    In Abraham’s case, I doubt that he was Cromwellian, especially if his father died in the Kentish uprising siding against Cromwell and with the deposed King Charles. On the other hand, it’s a possibility I had never previously considered. If he was, for some reason, pro-Cromwell, it might well have alienated him from other family members who did support the deposed Charles and welcomed the reinstatement of his son, Charles II, known as “The Restoration,” in 1660. Kent was heavily pro-Charles and anti-Cromwell. It would seem to me that in 1660, Abraham, at age 12 or 13 would be too young to be politically thoughtful. However, Beverly Fleet may have been accurate in that many of the older men in Virginia may well have left in the late 1550s when Cromwell’s reign was coming to an end.

    Regardless of why Abraham left England, all of the thousands of American descendants need to be exceedingly grateful that he did, and survived, or we wouldn’t be here and who we are today. I asked David Powell who maintains the most comprehensive list of descendants that I’m aware of in his Estes/Eastes Pages, how many descendants Abraham has, and he indicated it was about 27,000. That’s just an amazing number, and we know we don’t have all of them.

    I asked David how many descendants that Nicholas Estes, the first proven Estes ancestor from Deal, born about 1495, with only one documented son in his will, has today. His answer? About 35,000. Of those, 27,000 are attributed to Abraham, another 6000 to the Northern US Estes line and a couple thousand in England. Just think how many there might really be if we knew how many children Nicholas actually had. Ironically, it’s the English line that really hasn’t been thoroughly documented – the descendants of those who stayed – and David is working on that now – so we may see this number rise significantly in the future.

    end of note

    The Estes Family of England and Virginia

    The Estes are one of the great pioneer families of the United States. Numbered in their thousands they are are to be found in most parts of the country and a selection of their life histories would amply illustrate the history of America. They are to be found in the annals of the American Revolution, the expansion westwards and the Civil War and are representative of the whole social fabric from log cabin to Whitehouse! Though not among the great politicil families they produced a vice-presidential:candidate in Senator Estes Kefauver and a son-in-law on the bench to President Harrison, and they produced their own brand of tycoon in Billie Sol Estes. They were trail blazers, slave-owners and freers, Quakers. Episcopalians, Presbyterians and Baptists. They drowned in frozen rivers and were captured by Indians as children. They fought on both sides in the Civil War and nursed their dying countrymen in that conflict. Their traditional Biblical names shared place with those of George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, and Thomas Jefferson and their family name, which is hardly known elsewhere, has become very much an American surname.
    While it is known that the ancestors of the American Estes came from Kent in England and while there is a strong belief that the family was ultimately of Italian origin, very little has been written about the English ancestors and the English branches of the family. Indeed, a great deal of speculation and incorrect information has been circulated over the last hundred years, both in America and England. Largely due to the researches of an English genealogist employed by Charles Estes. The American families have been exposed to the belief that they descend from a family named Este which, in turn, descended from the Marquis Francesco d'Este of Burgundy who settled in England after the death of his friend and patron Charles the Bold, Duke of Burgundy. The story has some credibility in that Francesco, a trained diplomat, may well have been in the service of the Duchess, widow of Charles, who was an English princess and known to be sympathetic to the English pretender Lambert Simnel who claimed to be her nephew. Nevertheless it seems strange that no record of Francesco appears to survive in the English State Papers.

    The English Estes, most branches of which had adopted the Eastes spelling by the mid-eighteenth century, perpetuated another variant of this story though they had Francesco's descendants remaining in Europe where some of them became Protestant-. a,-id fled to England to escape persecution. In garbled form of this story was given false authority by another English professional genealogist in the mid-nineteenth century who stated that two brothers, sons of the Baron d'Este, a descendant of the Marquis d'Este, were Huguenots and fled to England after the revocation of the Edict of Nantes. As the families of the two brothers can be traced back much earlier in Kent the story only makes sense if those who fled to England did so in the mid-sixteenth century when hundreds of Walloon and Fleming refugees fled from the Spanish Netherlands (the former Duchy of Burgundy) to escape the Inquisition. It makes even greater sense when we recall that the Flemings and Walloons were commonly referred to as Huguenots in later times.

    What we know of the English Estes is pieced together from a thorough examination of the parish registers and bishops transcripts available for Acrise, Ashford, Bucldand, Canterbury, Deal, Dover, Elnam, Folkestone, Guston, Hythe, London, Lydden, Margate, Nonington, Northbourne, Ringwould, Ripple, Rotherhithe, St Margarets at Cliff, Sandwich, Sholden, Waldershare, Walmer, West Langdon, Wingham and Wooton. The greatest linking was only achieved in recent years by an experienced English researcher, Donald Bowler, but other researchers have contributed in fitting the genealogical jigsaw together.

    The Estes of Kent were described as a "maritime" family and this may explain why the earliest appearances of the name are found scattered about the southern coast from Morwenstow in Cornwall (1558) to Harwich in Essex.' There was probably a link between the Estes of Harwich and Deal, both centres of Walloon refugee settlement, as the registers of St Leonard, Deal, list the burial on 31 August 1621 of Hugh 'Estie' of Harwich who was bound from Germinie [Netherlands] in a ship called the Sion of London [Zion, a typical Protestant name]. It is clear from the records of St Leonard that all variants of the name were used interchangeably, the earliest instances being as follows: Eastes (1581), Este (1601), Estis (1618) and Eastis (1726). John Estye, who became a freeman of Canterbury by purchase on 27 June 1562, was a shearman or maker of shears, an occupation closely associated with the Walloon textile industry. He was no doubt the same John Estey or Estye who was a clothworker mentioned in Canterbury records between 1571 and 1593.
    The first progenitor of the Deal family for whom we have reasonable records was Henry Este or Eagtes (b. about 1549 in Deal) who made his will as Henry Eastice, fisherman of Deal, on 13 April 1590. His widow Mary/Maria Rand Este (b. before 1575) was buried at St Leonards on 19 June 1601. The available evidence suggests that Henry and Mary had the following children:

    1. Richard of Deal, born 1578
    2. Henry of Deal, bapt. St Leonards 6 April 1581
    3. Mary, bapt. St Leonards 15 January 158617, buried St Leonards 29 December 1587
    4. Aron, bapt.. St Leonards 6 July 1589
    Henry left his 'pinasse' (two masted vessel) and other property to be shared equally between his three sons Richard, Henry and Aron who were all very young. His executor was his brother Robert who was probably the founder of the Ringwould branch. Robert of Ringwould had links with Deal through his son Matthew, the marriage of his grand-daughter Ellen with Moses Estes, grandson of Richard of Deal, and the fact that some of his family became mariners, like the Deal family.
    Robert of Ringwould married Ann Woodward at Sholden on 2 December 1591. He probably died about 1616. His widow Annie's will, dated 21 April 1630, was probated 9 June 1630 and gives certainty to the next generation. Their children were as follows:

    1. Matthew, bapt. Sholden 11 June 1592
    2. Sylvester,, bapt. Ringwould 26 September 1596
    3. Alice, bapt. 26 March 1597, married at Ringwould, 28 October 1628 Thomas Beane
    4. Matthew, born 1601, married at Deal 23 November 1620 Margaret Johnson
    and buried Deal 4 June 1621
    5. Robert, bapt. Ring-would 29 May 1603
    6. Thornas, bapt. Ring-would 2 June 1605 Susan, bapt. Ringwould 30 October 1608
    8. John, bapt. Ringwould 3 March 1610
    9. ?, an infant who died in 1616
    Most of the American families appear to descend from the eldest surviving child Sylvester and the fourth surviving child Robert, although the family of Richard Estes of Deal (born 1578) also had American connections. Several persons named Estes or one of its variants arrived in America before the Restoration of the Stuart monarchy in England.
    A John Estes was brought to Virginia by Theodore Moyser in 1637 and another of that name was transported in 1659. Thomas Estes and his .wife Jane nee Jones were living in Westmoreland County, Virginia, in 1654 and James Estes or Estasse, probably a relation of Thomas, was living there in 1658. The early Estes could have come from the West Country rather than Kent though the most suitable candidate for Thomas would seem to be the second son of Robert of Ringwould, born in 1636. Sylvester Estes of Ringwould, sometime church warden, married Ellen Martin of Great Hardres on 24 November 1625. Ellen was of Waldershare according to her will of 1649. Sylvester had died before December 1667 when his daughter Ellen married. He left a large family:

    1. Robert, Senior, of Waldershare,bapt. Ringwould 10 September 1626, buried Waldersha're 23 June 1692 (ancestor of the Estes of Waldershare)
    2. Anne, bapt. Ring-would 25 November 1627
    3. Silvester (a daughter), bapt. Ringwould 31 May 1629 (afterwards Mrs Nash)
    4. Susan, bapt. Ringwould, 30 March 1631
    5. Thomas, bapt. Ring7would 20 January 1633 (ancestor of Estes of Acrise, etc.)
    6. Richard, bapt. Ring-would 5 October 1634 (ancestor of Estes and Eastes of Dover, West Langdon, St Margaret at Cliff and Guston)
    7. Mary, bapt. Ringwould 2 October 1636
    8. Anne, born in 1637
    9. Nicholas of Wingham, bapt. Nonington 9 December 1638
    10. Elizabeth, b. c.1640
    11. Ellen, bapt. Nonington 11 December 1642, married at Deal, 23 December 1667, Moses Estes of Deal as his second Wife.
    12. John, bapt. Nonington 29 December 1644
    13 Abraham, born in 1647

    The youngest child Abraham is an obvious candidate to be founder of the Virginia family. He was mentioned in his mother's will in 1649 and was a linen weaver in the old Walloon town of Sandwich, aged 25, when he married Ann widow of John Burton at Worth on 29 December 1672. Presumably Am died and he started a new life in Virginia. Family members who did not realise that Silvester was a woman could have assumed that Abraham was the youngest of seven brothers which may account for the American tradition that seven brothers had gone to America. The original claim was probably that Abraham was 'one of seven brothers' which later family members misconstrued to mean that they all came.

    That Abraham, son of Sylvester of Ringwould, was the Virginian ancestor is partly supported by the fact that Abraham Estes of Virginia named his son Sylvester as his executor, a position usually filled by the eldest son who was invariably named after his paternal grandfather. Although most of the listings of the children of Abraham and Barbara Estes do not place Sylvester first the most logical arrangement is that worked out by Margaret M. Hayes of Illinois, based on a close study of the Virginia records.It is as follows:

    1. Sylvester, b. c.1684, living in 1720
    2. Samuel, b. c.1686, married Rebecca
    3. Thomas, b.c.1688, d.1744, married c.1717 Ann Rogers who d. 1745
    4. Mary, b. c.1690 (Mrs. Thomas Watkins)
    5. Susanna, b. c.1692 (Mrs Thomas Poore)
    6. Robert, b. c.1695, d. Lunenburg Co. 13 April 1775, married c.1725 Mary
    7. Abraham, b.c.1697, d. before Feb. 1759, married (1) before 1717 Ann
    (2) c. 1740 Elizabeth Jeeter who d. 1774
    8. Richard, b. c.1699, d. Feb. 1774/5, married c.1727 Mary Yancy
    9. John, b. c.1701, married Elizabeth
    10. Elisha, b. c.1703, d. Henry Co. Virginia 1782 married before 1735 Mary Ann
    11. Sarah, b. c.1705, unmarried in 1720
    12 Moses, b. c.1710, d. 1788, married c.1731 Elizabeth.
    13. Barbara, b. c.1712, d. unmarried 1729
    We now return to Robert (b.1603), the English progenitor of the Estes of New
    England. Robert Estes of Ring-would married at Ringwould 31 January 1634 Dorothy, daughter of Thomas Wilson. Her sister Joan married Robert's brother Thomas on 21 November 1636. Robert and Dorothy had the following children.

    1. Robert, bapt. Ringwould 27 February 1635
    2. Thomas, bapt. Ringwould 23 October 1636
    3. Sylvester, bapt. Ringwould 9 September 1638
    4. Sarah, bapt. Ringwould, 22 March 1639/40
    5. child, b. 1643
    6. Matthew, b. Dover 28 May 1645, d. Salem, Massachusetts July 1723 (ancestor of one branch of the New England Estes)
    7. Richard, b. Dover 16 March 1647, d. (ancestor of the second branch of the New England Estes).
    Matthew Estes, a master mariner and master.of the Scituate-built sloop Unity of Boston in 1697-98, was already living in Dover, New Hampshire, when he married Philadelphia, widow of Edward Hayes, daughter of Ronald and Ann Jenkins, on 14 June 1676. He was living in Lynn as early as 1695 and died there on 9 July 1723. He was a member of the Society of Friends or Quakers." His brother Richard was also a Quaker and came to New England in 1684 where he married Elizabeth Beck at Dover , New Hampshire, on 23 April 1687. He lived mainly at Lynn and Salem though he is regarded as the founder of the Estes family of Hanover through his eldest son Matthew.
    The third family to have American connections was that of Richard of Deal. Richard married Agnes Dove at Ringwould on November 16 and was buried at St Leonards, Deal, on 21 February 1625/26. They had the following children.

    1. Richard, Junior, bapt. St Leonards, Deal 13 October 1605
    2. Annis, bapt. St Leonards 26 July 1618, married at Northbourne 1645 John Bowen
    Richard Estes, Junior, of Deal, married (1) at St Leonards 8 October 1627 Sara Norman, and (2) 31 March 1673 Mary Hyle or Hild, a widow. He was buried at St Leonards 31 May 1673. His will dated 27 May 1673 was probated 23 June 1673. He left the following children:
    1. Aaron, bapt. At St. Leonards 11 December 1631, a mariner, married at St Leonards 11 Apn'l 1653 Susanna Whetstone and had issue six children before he died about 1664. The eldest for the West lndies' and left Nicholas, also a mariner, was born in 1653 and married Elizabeth Sprusham at Canterbury in 1677.2 He is probably the same Nicholas Estes who was Lieutenant of the fireship Vulture in Her Majesty's Service who made his will on 20 June 1707 when'outward bound his real and personal estate to his wife Elizabeth." Aaron's fourth child Elizabeth was baptised at St Leonards 3 September 1660 and married Nathaniel Hatch of Boston, Massachusetts, at Deal on 9 October 1684, founding another American family.
    2. Sara, bapt. St Leonards 10 June 1633, married 4 December 1651 Stephen Mumbray
    3. Mary, bapt. St Leonards 28 June 1635, married 18 February 1656 Jeffrey Saffery of Lower Deal.
    4. Richard, junior, of Deal, bapt. St Leonards 19 February 1636, buried St Leonards 30 May 1663. He married Sarah Bridger of Sandwich in 1656 and had issue four children.
    5. John, bapt. St Leonards 18 November 1638, buried St Leonards 23 May 1646.
    6. Ann, b. in 1641, died young
    7. Moses, bapt. St Leonards 12 November 1643
    8. Samuel, also a mariner, bapt. St Leonards 14 December 1646, married Elizabeth Sillary at Ripple in 1666
    9. John, also a mariner in Her Majesty's Service, bapt. St Leonards 2 September 1649, buried St Leonards 27 November 1695. He married Sarah Banes at St Leonards 2 March 1673 and had eight children
    10. Ann, bapt. St Leonards, 16 November 1651, married at St Leonards 4 November 1669 John Bowen, a seaman, probably her cousin.
    The seventh child, Moses, is probably ancestor of Moses Estes who settled in Virginia in 1783. He married (1) at St Leonards 30 November 1663 Mary Mumbray who was buried St Leonards 29 November 1664 leaving an infant daughter Mary who died soon afterwards. He then married Ellen or Ella Estes, daughter of Sylvester and Ellen Estes of Ringwould and presumably full sister of Abraham Estes of Virginia." Moses died at Deal 19 March 1707/8 and was buried at St Leonards where there is a Memorial headstone carved with a skull and cross-bones and an hourglass." Ellen was buried at St Leonards 26 December 1729. Moses and Ellen had the following children:
    1. Richard, bapt. St Leonards 29 January 1667/8, buried St Leonards December 1668
    2. Constant, bapt. St Leonards 28 December 1669. She was buried at St Leonards 20 November 1708 where she was commemorated on her father's headstone
    3. Aaron, bapt. St Leonards 7 February 1671
    4. Samuel, bapt. St Leonards 28 February 1674/5.
    Samuel Estes married Ann Reed at St Mary the Virgin, Aldermanbury, London on 25 October'1704 and died in 1745. He had the following children:
    1. Moses, bapt. St Dunstans, Stepney on 22 August 17 1027
    2. Ann, bapt. St Dunstans, Stepney on 22 December 1713
    3. Samuel, bapt. St Leona.rds, Deal 25 November 1719
    4. Thomas, bapt. St Leonards 27 October 1721.
    Other Estes may have come independently to America but they did not proliferate like the original pioneers. Early this century a family of Eastes of Dutch nationality arrived from Holland; they were descendants of a Richard Eastes from England who had settled in the Netherlands. This sequence of events gives a strange twist to the myth of family origins. The English Estes family was not lawfully armigerous since none of them had registered Arms, and there is no evidence of an Estes family bearing Arms before the establishment of the College of Arms in 1483. There is evidence, however, that the Eastes of Kent used armorial insignia (a garb and three fleurs-de-lys) which tends to support their Walloon or Flemish origins, since burgher arms (i.e., arms assumed by the citizenry) were proudly displayed in the Netherlands. Many of the old Walloon and Herriing families introduced this custom to England though it was never officially recognised unless the bearers applied for registration. Usually these burgher arms had the simplicity of trade signs tending to symbolise the occupation of the bearer. A garb or sheaf, for instance, could be an indication that the bearer was a brewer. Robert Eastes who became a freeman of Canterbury by redemption in 1681, was a maltster." The Crest used by the Eastes of Ashford was Issuant from three fleurs-de-lys: a garb."
    The tombstone of Thomas and @lary Eastes in Guston Churchyard, Kent, erected in 1743, displays a coat-of-arms which was once thought to be that of the family: A chevron between two {fleurs de lys} in chief and a garb in base. For crest An arm holding a [fleur de lys]." On close inspection, however, these arms appear to be those of the Worshipful Company of Tylers and Bricklayers granted on 3 February 1569: Azure a chevron or, in chief a fleur-de-lys argent between two brick-axes palewise or, in base a brush also or. For crest On a wreath or and azure a dexter arm enibowed vested party per pale or and gules, cuffed argent, holding in the hand proper a brick-axe or.

    Anyone unacquainted with the Guild arms could be excused for confusing the brush in base as a garb as it is not a common heraldic charge. It was in fact a bundle of laths which are evidently indispensable in the tiling of roofs. Also the brickaxes (larger than the central fleur-de-lys) are so nondescript as to resemble the central section of the fleur-de-lys. Why the Arms should include a fleur-de-lys at all is not Clear except that they are often a symbol of the Blessed Virgin Mary who may have been the saint to whom the early members of the fraternity made their VOWS.

    Thomas Eastes, son of Thomas and Mary, became a Freeman of Canterbury by marriage and as a Citizen and Bricklayer he would have believed himself entitled to use the Guild Arms on his father's tombstone especially as the Company had relaxed its rules after the Great Fire of London in 1666 to allow non-freemeil to enjoy all its City Privileges. It is possible, of course, that a misreading of the Arms on Thomas Eastes headstone was responsible for the family using armorial insignia displaying a garb and three fleurs-de-lys.

    Other families did not adopt Arms until the mid-nineteenth century, when they were made aware of the Arms of the Estes of Ferrara displayed on the coinage of Niccolo d'Este. The Eastes of Whitstable and Sydney assumed the quarterings of Niccolo and Leonello d'Este: 1 and 4. Azure three fleurs-de-lys or (bestowed upon the family by Charles VII in 1432) and 2 and 3. Azure an eagle argent, beaked, membered and crowned gules. These were substantially the same Arms used by the Marquis Francesco in Burgundy as on the reverse of his portrait by Roger van der Weyden in the Metropolitan Museum, New York, though the lily quarterings were surrounded by a bordure 'double indented or and gules'.

    It is intriguing that the Este arms assumed by some of the American families in modern times not only features the fleurs-de-lys quartering .vith the double indented bordure but also a garb." These arms are blazoned in Burke's General Armoury as follows: Azure, three fleurs-de-lis or, within a bordure parted per bordure dancetee over all, exterior argent, interior gules. For crest - A garb or, banded gules. These would appear to be the legitimate arms of a well-known family of Este in England whose ancestor was in the court of James I and changed the spelling of his name from East to Este at the king's suggestion because of the belief that they were a branch of the Estes of Ferrara." In the eighteenth century the head of this family was the Reverend Charles Este, a nephew of Dr Charles Este, Bishop of Waterford, and a noted literary figure described as 'the most extraordinary character of his time'." His eldest son Charles Lambton Este (1775-1841), a naval surgeon and fidend of Lord Nelson, moved to Paiis where he married Sophie Charlotte, the daughter of the banker Sir. Robert Smyth, fifth baronet and friend of Tom Paine, in 1803, and assumed the style and title of Charles Edouard, Baron D'Este.

    Although all the male members of this family have been styled Baron D'Este, the direct succession has been as follows:

    1. Charles Edouard, Baron D'Este 1775-1841
    2. Charles Michel Oscar, Baron D'Este 1809-1879
    3. Beresford Alfred, Baron D'Este,' born 1840
    4. Charles, Baron D'Este, born c.1873
    These assumed Barons remained loyal to the Church of England, took English brides and were even assumed to belong to the nobility of France being given an entry, for instance, in the Annuaire General Heraldique edited by Jules Wigniolle (Paiis, 1904). They no longer used the English arms, however, replacing them with the antique blazon of the Italian family: Dazur, a 1'aigle d'argent armee dor
    . It would be interesting to know what pedigrees they possess and whether or not there is any connection between them and the English and American Estes. The garb in their crest suggests that they may originally have come from the Netherlands also. There is always the possibility of course that Este was plain East (as West is West) or that Estis was Eustace. Niel Gunson is a historian by profession and holds the position of Senior Feflow in Pacific Histo a The Australian National University in Canberra. His earliest Australian ancestors (a great gre grandfather) arrived in 1842. His mother's family arrived in 1853. His maternal grandmother was the last to arrive from England in 1889 and it is through her that he is descended from the Estes (Eastes) family. He grew up in the Victorian countryside before going to school and university in Melbourne. He has always been interested in family history and has been a member of the Genealogical Society of Victoria (of which he is a Fellow) since 1949. He was editor of its magazine for 20 years and was also instrumental in founding the Heraldry and Genealogy Society of Canberra in 1966. He has written or edited several books relating to the Pacific and also a local history.

    10. According to his mother's will he was aged 20 when he died which suggests that the first born Matthew did not survive infancy.

    12. N.E. Snow and M.M. Jillson (Snow-Estes Ancestry 2 vols. Hillburn, New York 1939, II, 3) incorrectly confuse Sylvester with his grandson of the same name who died in January 1692/3. Ellen Estes' marriage records make it plain that she was a 'maiden, age 24, whose parents are dead in Deal'.

    13. Snow and Jillson incorrectly attach the Waldershare family to Robert (born 1635), the eldest brother of Matthew and Richard of New England.

    14. Family Bible entries rarely gave details of the marriage of siblings so a younger generation would only see the names.

    15. Others argue that Robert (b.1603), father of the New England pioneers, had seven sons, though this is equally hypothetical.

    16. Samuel's wife's name is given by Dr Lucille Dillinger Alexander, The Estes Family of Virginia, Southern Kentucky, Iowa, Missouri and Kansas... Wayne N.J. 1990), 89.

    17. Dr Alexander (Estes Family, 88) is less certain about the identity of Thomas's wife but suggests Ann or Eliz. Ann Rogers. Several sources suggest that Thomas died in 1774 and cite Thomas's will in Crozier's Record of Spotsylvania Co VA, vol.i, 305. 18.

    20. A check of the surname indexes to the Digest Registers of births, marriages and burials at Friends House, London, by Tabitha Driver reveals that there are no Estes/Estis/Eastes entries for Kent Quarterly Meeting or for Hereford, Worcester & Wales Quarterly Meeting and no births or marriages for London & Middlesex Quarterly Meeting.

    22. Snow and Jillson (Snow-Estes Ancestry, II, 2) has Nicholas maldng a second marriage and dying in 1681 even though his sister Susanna mentions him in her will in 1697. Nicholas Estes of Thannington was probably Nicholas of Wingham.

    38. The precedent for name changes by Este, East and Eastes families was probably the adoption of the D'Este surname by the Duke of Sussex for his children by his morganatic wife in 1794. The following are some of the name changes: George Eastes of Bradford to George D'Este (1865), Herbert Hinton East East of Boughton House, Moreton-in-the-Marsh, Gloucestershire, to H.H.

    The family name, Eastes, has been spelt in *many* different ways. Eastes is
    the most common spelling in England and also one of the oldest. The Eastes of the USA
    (and Canada) are generally spelt Estes. Since this chart is following one of the
    American lines, I have adopted the Estes spelling here, even where another variant
    has been used (in most cases anyway).

    FORMAT:
    ------
    The following chart is presented in a modified LDS "Ancestral File" report format
    that I have devised as being the most efficient way of recording the information
    that I want to include. Entries for ESTES descendents (all surnames are in capitals) are
    given in the following format:

    :.. John ESTES (1725-1778) of Caroline Co, VA; d.Caroline Co, VA
    :.. [15,16,23,48,53,57,71,86,121,132,172]

    The "." before the name are generation counters, to find John's parents move back
    up the chart until you find an entry with one less "." (that is ":. "). Children of
    John would be listed with an extra period (ie: ":... "). The number(s) in the
    "(___)" refer to the year of birth and the year of death. Where the date is known
    to within a year or two I have used the abbreviation "c.". Where the date is a rougher
    estimate, within 5-10 years or so, I have used "abt.". Other abbreviations I have used
    are "bf" for before, "bt" for between and "af" or "aftr" for after. The locations given
    after the dates are the places of birth and death ("d."), where known. In a few
    places I have used the notation "b&d.", meaning that the person was born and died in
    the same county. Where possible I have given the locations as the county. In some
    entries a "," replaces "of". The numbers in the square brackets, "[__]" are references,
    which can be found at the end of the chart. Where an event has occured in an
    "independent city", that is a city that lies geographically within a county but is
    not politically part of that county, I have generally given the event as occuring
    in the county.

    Additional information may be given for selected individuals. "Rev.War" means the
    individual fought in the US Revolutionary War. "C.War" means the person fought in
    the US civil war. "CSA" means the person fought in the civil war on the side of the
    Confederate States of America (CSA).

    Limited information on travel patterns are given for some individuals. Eg:
    "Bertie Co, NC 1734-1741" indicates records place the individual in Bertie Co, NC
    between the years 1734 and 1741. The person may have been in the county before and/or
    after these dates, however the figures given those which are documented. Note that
    in some cases an individual may appear to have moved, whilst in fact an existing
    county may have been split and the person is in the new county. Details for travel
    patterns are mainly taken from census records and tax lists.

    Spouses of Estes descendents are listed in a similar fashion, with the following
    format:

    :.. +Mary MARSHALL (1726-1772); 1746, Caroline Co, VA
    :.. d.Caroline Co, VA [16,23,48,53,71,86,121,132,172]

    The "+" indicates the individual is a spouse. Marriage details are listed in the
    format: "; date, location" and usually are located between the birth and death
    locations, if they are listed, as above.

    Note that birth and death details are generally not listed for spouses. If you wish
    further information on spouses, such as their ancestry, see the reference section
    for contact details of those who submitted the information or refer to the Estes
    email contacts page (http://roots-boots.net/ft/estes/emails.html). Please
    don't ask me for ancestry of Estes wives - I am only interested in Estes and their
    descendents.

    A "-" at the start of a line indicates a significant degree of uncertainity about
    placement, that is, a guess or unsubstantiated claim.

    "K & Q Co, VA" is King and Queen Co, VA. Standard two-letter USA state abbreviations are
    used in most cases.

    ###################################################################

    ABRAHAM ESTES, born 1647 at Nonington, Kent, England. Abraham's baptism record
    does not survive, however he was mentioned in his mother's will. He was
    a linen weaver at Sandwich, Kent, by 1672. He married Ann Burton (a
    widow) on 29/12/1672, at Worth, Kent. Abraham emigrated to the British
    colonies in North America, arriving before 1682. On 20/4/1682 Lucy Keeling
    claimed headright for Abraham and 5 others, their passage to Virginia
    having previously been arranged and paid for by her deceased father,
    Thorowgood Keeling. Thorowgood died 8/1679, so it is probable Abraham either
    already arrived or his passage had been arranged prior to this. It was a common
    practice for wealthy residents in the America's to sponsor emigrants, who
    would then serve an indenture to pay off the cost of the voyage. The typical
    indenture lasted seven years, after which the emigrant would be free to marry
    and obtain his own property. Since Abraham was still in England by the start of
    1673 and was a "freeman" in Virginia by 1683, it is likely he voyaged to the
    America's around 1674/1675. According to an unsourced claim, Abraham arrived on
    the "Vana". It has been speculated that his first wife, Ann Burton, died
    enroute to Virginia, tho' there is no evidence. In 1683 he was living in New
    Kent Co, VA, before settling in the parish of St Stephen's, King and Queen
    County, VA. In 1683 he was a signatory of a petition whilst in St.
    Stephen's Parish. In 1704 he paid quit rent on 200 acres in King and
    Queen County. Abraham died 21/11/1720, in King and Queen County,
    Virginia, leaving his estate to his wife, Barbara. Barbara made her will
    25/11/1720, leaving part of the estate to several of her children and the
    remainder to Elisha Estes and Thomas Poor and wife Susanna, for the
    raising of Moses and Barbara, who upon their parents death's were
    raised by Thomas and Susanna Poor. Barbara's maiden name is a matter of some
    dispute. It has generally been claimed she was Barbara Brock, however there is
    no documentary evidence to support this.
    [All dates in English format, dd/mm/yyyy]
    - Taken mostly from http://www.roots-boots.net/ft/l-eastes.txt
    see references therein and also [276,317,463,627,1125] below.

    When did Abraham emigrate to Virginia? To date that question remains unanswered. There have
    been claims that he arrived on such-and-such ship at such-and-such date, but none of these
    claims can be verified and/or when checking the claimed sources, they are shown to be at best
    mistakes and at worst complete fabrications.

    One of the more recent claims was that Abraham arrived in Virginia in late 1673 or early 1674
    on the "Martha", which departed from London, England via Wales. The Captain was Abraham Wheelock
    and there were only three passengers on board, William Bobbet, Abraham Estes and John
    Skinner.[1433] That the "Martha" existed at the time and was captained by Abraham Wheelock
    appears to be reliably confirmed - the ship was a 'flyboat' and was a blockade runner. The
    Martha could carry 140 passengers but in this voyage appears to have carried mostly cargo - in
    an attempt to get through the Dutch blockade of Virginia.[1436] A proported painting of the ship
    by Jacob Knyff, made late 1673, hangs in the National Maritime Museum in London.[1434] Further,
    Abraham Wheelock filed a will 8/1673, prior to what he perceived as a perilous voyage although
    it does not state his destination.[1434] Wheeler evidently survived the voyage since he was alive
    in 1677.[1435]

    This all sounds great news for the descendents of Abraham, however all is not what it may seem.
    The sources for connecting Abraham Estes with the "Martha" alas do not stand up to closer
    scrutiny. One source helpfully states its source as "a book in Virginia section of Mesa Regional
    Family History Center".[1436] Not very helpful and in reality, impossible to verify. Another
    source gives a more detailed and, at first glance, conclusive source: "Cavaliers and Pioneers,
    Abstracts of Virginia Land Patents and Grants, Vol. 2: 1666-1695. Indexed by Claudia Grundman.
    Richmond, VA: Virginia State Library, 1977, 609p, Nell Marion Nugent. Page: 146".[1434] An
    inspection of the page in question reveals, well, nothing.[1438] At best the source is wrong,
    at worst it is a fabrication. In fact "Cavaliers and Pioneers" lists land patents and deeds, it
    does not list passenger records! Another source is given for this claim - it was supposedly
    recorded in the family bible of Isham Drury Bobbitt Jr.[1436] How well does this source hold up?
    We will never know - the bible in question was destroyed sometime before 1840.[1437] Possibly a
    transcription was made before the bible was destroyed, but even if it was, one has to be more
    than a trifle skeptical of the validity of this source!

    The conclusion? Lacking any verifiable sources for the claim that Abraham arrived in Virginia
    on the "Martha" in early 1674, one must view the claim with a high degree of skepticism,
    especially in light of one source being destroyed before 1840 and the other making no reference
    to the "Martha" or Abraham at all (apart from a latter reference in 1682 to Abraham). Did Abraham
    arrive on the "Martha" early 1674? It's possible, but there's no evidence for it. Equally likely
    he could have arrived in 1675 on the "Mary" or flown to Virginia on a magic carpet!

    Lacking any verifiable sources for the claim that Abraham arrived in Virginia on the "Martha" in early 1674, one must view the claim with a high degree of skepticism, especially in light of one source being destroyed before 1840 and the other making no reference to the "Martha" or Abraham at all (apart from a latter reference in 1682 to Abraham). Did Abraham arrive on the "Martha" early 1674? It's possible, but there's no evidence for it. Equally likely he could have arrived in 1675 on the "Mary" or flown to Virginia on a magic carpet! ... http://www.roots-boots.net/ft/estes-ab.txt

    Abraham married Barbara LNU 29 Dec 1682, King and Queen County, Virginia. Barbara was born 1662-1670, King and Queen County, Virginia; died 0___ 1720, Amelia Court House, Amelia County, Virginia, A British Colony of America. [Group Sheet]


  2. 137.  Barbara LNU was born 1662-1670, King and Queen County, Virginia; died 0___ 1720, Amelia Court House, Amelia County, Virginia, A British Colony of America.

    Other Events:

    • Also Known As: Barbara Brock
    • Will: 25 Nov 1720

    Notes:

    Barbara's maiden name is a matter of some dispute. It has generally been claimed she was Barbara Brock, however there is no documentary evidence to support this.

    end of comment

    Slavery in Virginia was not yet institutionalized. It wasn’t until 1720, about the time Abraham and Barbara died, that Virginia passed a law relegating slaves to "personal property" status, meaning they could be bought and sold and were never free.

    Abraham died on November 21, 1720 or 1721. There is a discrepancy in the year within the documents themselves. At that time, Abraham’s wife, Barbara, was living, and made her will as well, apparently 4 days later. We don’t know if she made her will at that time because she too was ill, which was the typical reason or if other forces were at play. For example, she could have made her will simply because there was a lawyer available and she was already involved in settling her husband’s estate, or she could have made her will because someone was afraid if she didn’t, they wouldn’t get their fair share. She could also have made her will because she wanted to be positive that her youngest children would be taken care of, especially Barbara who was clearly a very dependent “special needs” child. The only clue we have is that Abraham’s wife, Barbara, apparently died very shortly thereafter. This must have been exceedingly difficult for their children, especially those who were still at home, Moses and Barbara (the daughter) who may not have had the capacity to understand – to lose both parents, possibly in a matter of days.

    From the chancery suit:

    Your orator Moses Eastis that in the year of our lord 1721 on the 21st day of Nov your orator’s late father Abraham Eastes departed this life after making and constituting in writing his last will and testament and thereby after specifically leaving? part of his estate did give or further lend his who personal estate to his wife Barbara during her natural life and to be disposed of amongst his children then living as she might think proper.

    Note that it says two things. First, “his children” and second, “as she might think proper.”

    Here’s what Barbara’s will said, again, from the chancery suit:

    He further stated? that the said Barbara Eastes agreeable to the trust and in the presence aforesaid reposed in her by your orator’s father on the 25th day of Nov. 1720 she made in writing her last will and testament in writing and surety? after giving an inconsiderable part of her aforesaid husband’s estate to several of her children therein mentioned directly that the remainder should remain in the hands of her executor Elisha Eastes, Thomas Poor and Susana his wife for the sole benefit of your orator and Barbara Eastes your orator’s sister whom she concluded were incapable of getting their living. But with a precise that they should become an ? in their leave? or either of them should die then the same to be equally divided amongst Sylvester, Thomas, Elisha, Robert, Richard, John, Moses Eastes, Martha Watkins, Susana Poor and Sarah Eastes or the survivors of them as by the said last will and testament will more fully appear reference being that there to and to which your orator for greater certainty refer and on the day of departed this life without altering or revoking the will.

    It’s hard to know why Barbara made her will, but what we do know is that Moses and Barbara, her two youngest children began living with Thomas Poor and his wife, Susanna, in 1721, per the depositions in the chancery suit.

    This tells us that Barbara died not long after Abraham, perhaps within a few days. She was only about 50. She may have had the same illness as Abraham. We do know that there was a severe smallpox epidemic in Boston in 1721, killing upwards of 6000 and causing the entire population of the city to flee, bringing smallpox to the rest of the thirteen colonies.

    This lawsuit also gives us hints as to Barbara’s age. Her youngest child was Barbara who was born about 1713. She was disabled and epileptic – perhaps a Downs child – very commonly found in the youngest child to older mothers. Barbara was the last child born, so if we presume Barbara, the mother, was about age 43, that puts her birth at about 1670, and her marriage to Abraham about 1690, give or take a couple of years.

    Several children were mentioned in Barbara’s will, which is referenced in the lawsuit. Unfortunately, her will is missing and has been for years, along with Abraham’s from the Amelia County lawsuit. It was referenced in the 1940s by researchers, and fortunately, the pleadings in the suit summarize the contents of the will.

    Barbara lists the following 11 children in her will. I’ve included a summary of what we know about each one.

    Sylvester – wife unknown, by 1722 owned land in King and Queen County, moved to Bertie Co., NC by 1734 and was in Granville Co., NC by 1744, Northampton Co., NC by 1754.
    Thomas – married Ann Rogers, died in Caroline County, VA in1745.
    Elisha – married Mary Ann Mumford, was the executor of his father’s estate in 1720, lived in Amelia County as late as 1770, died in Henry County, VA in 1782.
    Robert – married Mary “Millie” Smith, moved to Lunenburg County where he died in 1775.
    Richard – married Mary Yancy, died in 1741/1742 in Hanover County.
    John – married Elizabeth “Nutty” Pickett, died in 1765/1770 in Louisa County, VA.
    Moses – born 1701, was one of two minor children upon the death of Abraham, married Elizabeth, surname unknown by whom he had children, and died in 1787 in Halifax County, VA.
    Sarah – married James Young sometime after her mother’s death in 1721 – no further information.
    Barbara – died as a child.
    Martha Watkins – Also noted as Mary by some, husband Thomas Watkins. No further information.
    Susana Poor – husband Thomas Poore, had daughter Elizabeth, born about 1710, who married a Harris and Mary who married Zachariah Williams
    The bolded children are females who may have had daughters that could have descendants today, through all females, who would be candidates for mitochondrial DNA testing.

    The Estes family was very fortunate. According to the Virginia History series, if a child lived past 20, their life expectancy was about 40 years, but half of the children didn’t survive. This is one reason why the colonies were so dependent on immigration.

    If Barbara married Abraham in 1690 and had a child every other year, this would be just about perfect, although the only two children appearing to be underage in 1721 were Moses and Barbara, which suggest the other 9 were age 18 by 1721, or born before 1703. Nine children born every two years suggests births beginning about 1785.

    There are two other children believed to be Abraham’s, a son, Abraham, and a son Samuel. Evidence for Samuel being a son is somewhat sketchy, but evidence that Abraham was Abraham’s son is rather convincing, including the same first name and the fact that it appears that Abraham may have wound up with Abraham Sr.’s land. It was not unusual in that time and place for the eldest son to inherit all of the land, sometimes by conveyance prior to the parent’s death, and then not be mentioned in the will.

    Regardless of why, neither Abraham nor Samuel were mentioned in Barbara’s will.

    If Abraham and Samuel were Barbara’s children, they were probably the oldest males.

    Given that Abraham immigrated in 1673, and was not married to Barbara until about 1690, it’s certainly possible that he was married in Virginia prior to marrying Barbara. In fact, it would be unlikely that Abraham remained single this entire time, even if he did serve an indentured servitude for 7 years, a possibility that has been debated within the Estes family for years.

    What we don’t know from the lawsuit or any other documentation of any kind about Barbara, the wife who died in 1721 and the mother of most of Abraham’s children, is her surname.

    Given that New Kent and King and Queen are burned counties, and there is absolutely no evidence that Abraham and Barbara ever lived in any other location, there is nothing, absolutely nothing, indicating Barbara’s surname or parents.

    However, when you look on Ancestry.com, her surname is listed in all the trees as Brock, and that is absolutely incorrect. Or maybe better stated, there is not one shred of evidence anyplace that her surname is Brock. Nada – not one. If you find one, please, PLEASE send it to me! By the way, evidence is not someone else’s tree or contributed family information. Evidence is a Bible, a tax list, a deed, a will, a lawsuit – something of that nature. Personally, I’m still hoping for that Bible on e-bay:)

    The Brock surname seems to have attached itself to Barbara in the 1980s when a historical fiction book that included the Estes family was published and assigned Brock as Barbara’s surname. It also doesn’t help any that Abraham’s probable son, Abraham, had a daughter, Barbara, who married Henry Brock, so indeed there was a Barbara Brock in the family, although she was Barbara Estes Brock, not Barbara Brock Estes – and two generations later. Those pesky details!!!

    DNA evidence isn’t going to help us find Barbara’s surname, unfortunately.

    However, there is one other possible DNA avenue to learn more about Barbara Not Brock Estes. She did have daughters, although we have no information about two of those daughters after they married. If they survived, they surely had children – and possibly daughters.

    Anyone who descends through all females from Barbara carries her mitochondrial DNA. Her mitochondrial DNA will tell us about her heritage – where her people came from – England perhaps? Native American? If we can find her mitochondrial DNA, we will have that answer. Barbara had three daughters. Of those, we know little about 2, but the third daughter had at least 2 daughters, so there is hope that some descendant today descends from Barbara through all females. I have a DNA testing scholarship for the first person with proof of their descent from Barbara through all females!!!

    Surname: Goodson

    This interesting surname is a metronymic form of the Middle English female given name "Godeve", from the old English pre 7th Century personal name "Godgifu", composed of the elements "god" meaning good or god plus "gifu" a gift. The personal name may also be Godith from the old English "Godguth", "god" meaning good or god plus "guth" a battle. "Godit" (without surname), appears in the Rotuli Chartarum in 1199 and "Godith", is noted in the 1206 Curia Regis Rolls of Bedfordshire.

    In the modern idiom the surname can be found in several spellings including Goodison, Gooderson, Goodinson and Goodson.

    The surname is first recorded in the early half of the 14th Century (see below). Robert Guditson and John Godyeson are registered in the 1379 Poll Tax Returns of Yorkshire. On July 3rd 1680, John, son of Barnard and Lydia Goodison was christened at St. Mary Whitechapel Stepney.

    The marriage of Benjamin Goodison and Sarah Cooper took place at St. Bride, Fleet St., London on August 13th 1723.

    William Goodison married Elizabeth Harris on January 5th 1632, at St. George's Church, Hanover Square, Westminster.

    A coat of arms granted to the family consists of a paly of six, silver and red, and on a blue chief three silver mullets. On the crest is a peacock's head proper.

    The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Nicholas Godithson, which was dated 1332, in the "Subsidy Rolls of Cumberland", during the reign of King Edward 111, known as "The Father of the Navy", 1327 - 1377.

    Surnames became necessary when governments introduced personal taxation. In England this was known as Poll Tax. Throughout the centuries, surnames in every country have continued to "develop" often leading to astonishing variants of the original spelling.

    the information on eliza rushing as being the wife of edward goodson is on the internet. gedhtree version 1.04 by gary welker. it stated that eliza rushing is the daughter of mathew rushing sr. i have been told that if a person who is the breadwinner of a family and he dies, his children are orphans, and the mother is still living. as in the case of my gggrandfather jesse rushing died in 1867, leaving 4 children. the courts declared them orphans, even though their mother was still living. i have several legal documents stating this. i can only find one instance where edward goodson and mathew rushing received received a land grant.

    Ira: once again, you impress me. Thank you for sharing. In VIRGINIA COLONIAL ABSTRACTS, Vol. 13. Charles City County Court Records. 1685. by Beverly Fleet. page 3. Abstract. "Jno Gallose hath turned Mathew Russhin out of doores the Orph'n of Mathew Russhin dec'ed and otherwise evilly intreated him". At orphans request John Wallis app'd guardian. Gallose seems to have been the second husband of Mathew Senior's widow. I assumed that Wallis was married at the time.

    The Goodson Family states that Edward Goodson married Eliza Rushin(g). If so, that may be the Mathew Junior/ Ed. Goodson connection. By the way, Arthur Allen recorded his survey of Matt/Eds Isle of Wight property on 10 April 1707. English Duplicates of Lost Virginia Records. Gen. Pub. Co., 1981. So they were there before 1714.

    I knew that the name of the wives of Wallis and Munford was Sarah. I did not know they were the same woman. If you look up the Munford family on the internet I think you will find that the maiden name of Sarah was Wyatt. It may have had an "e" on the end.

    Who was Randal Mattux? In Charles City County Court Orders ( at a Court holden at Westopher, 10 Nov 1691), "Clerk to deliver to Randal Mattux his bond of Russhin's estate"
    In a twenty or thirty year old query bulletin called THE NORTH CAROLINIAN, one writer in wrote "William McKinne, c1725-1793, lived in that part of Dobbs Co. which became Wayne Co. He was undoubtedly the son of Mary Rushing Mckinne. (Son or grandson of Barnaby Mackenie, neighbor of Mat Rushing???) .

    Thanks again, keep in touch................. John

    "Cavaliers & Pioneers", p. 342, by Nugent;

    Came to America, November 28, 1656, sponsored by William Blackey. Blackey received 1000 acres of land in New Kent County, Virginia, on the east side of Little Queen's Creek: running by land patented by M. Thomas Vause, to land of William Cox, transportation of 20 persons, among whom was Edward Goodson

    A Rushing Timeline...

    1661- 1662 Mathew Rushing is on a Jury Panel in Charles City County, Virginia. This sets the time frame for the first American mainland Rushing records.

    1667 James Russhin acquires an indenture (debt or purchase) in New Kent County, Virginia.

    1679 William Russhin dies and leaves an estate to his orphan named Mathew Russhin in Charles City County, Virginia

    1690 Mathew Russhin comes of age and claims his fathers estate.

    1714 Mathew Russin and Edward Goodson given a Virginia 'Headrights' land grant by the Royal governor of Virginia. This Edward Goodson has many land dealings with Matthew Rushing. "Matthew Rushing and wife Elizabeth" is how he diligently spelled his name in all records prepared by him or his lawyer, but in abstracts his last name is spelled Ruskin or Russin and often the second t dropped from his first name.

    1742 David Russan comes to Virginia aboard the ship Duke of Cumberland from Bristol, England. Could one of the lines we attribute to the Carolina Rushings be from him?

    1750's The Rushing surname with some variations in spelling begin to appear in Anson County, North Carolina land records. William appears to be one of the first names.

    1790 At a time when there were only eight hundred families enumerated in the Fayette district of Anson County, North Carolina fifteen of them are Rushings. The 1790 Virginia Census is lost but the Rushing surname appears to be gone from Virginia by this time.

    2005/6 seven Rushings from the USA and from widely varied unconnected lines of the U.S. surname Rushing and one Rushen from England test with DNA showing that the we all share a common genetic ancestor. This proves the origins of this Rushen from England and the Rushings in the USA are the same and that most, if not all, U.S. Rushings have a common ancestor. The sample includes known descendants of the North Carolina and South Carolina Rushings that went to Alabama.

    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,

    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.
