    • Occupation: Merchant & Planter
    • Religion: Anglican
    • Immigration: 1713-1714, Suffolk, Virginia

    Notes:

    David Osheal immigrated from London, England circa 1713-1714 and married Elizabeth Pugh. David O'Sheal, although born in London, England, was of Irish ancestry and is the immigrant ancestor to many descendants. The surname has variants, but O'Sheal and O'Shields are predominate.

    David O'Sheal was an early planter and merchant in Nansemond County, VA (now near Suffolk, VA) and an attorney who practiced in both Virginia and North Carolina.

    David O'Sheal died in 1745, and his widow Elizabeth O'Sheal survived him.

    Although some years ago many stones were broken, vandalized,etc, at Glebe, the graves remain. Fortunately, the graves of David Osheal and his wife Elizabeth Pugh Osheal were noted years before the stones were vandalized. As with many 17th century burials, burial records were often not kept or no longer extant, and stones are often broken and discarded, however the graves have not been removed.

    David Osheal was the son of John Osheal and Alice Apsley.

    The children of John Osheal and Alice Apsley who were baptized in the Church of England (Anglican) at the St. Martin-in-the-Fields Church, Westminster, Middlesex, London, England were:

    1. John Osheal of John and Alice, baptized 7 June 1689.
    2. David Oshell of John and Alice, born 23 Jan 1690
    3. John Oshel of John and Alice born 17 March 1696/97
    4. Barnard Osheal of John and Alice born 16 Jan 1699/1700
    5. Benjamin Osheal of John and Alice born 13 July 1705, baptized on 25 July 1705

    Of the above, David Osheal and his brother Benjamin Osheal came to America.

    The children of David Osheal and Elizabeth Pugh Osheal included the following:

    1. John OSHEAL, b. Abt. 1716, Nansemond Co, Virginia; d. 1749, Norfolk Co, Virginia, m. Ann BOUSCH. Being the oldest son (per my review of early deeds between father and son), John inherited the bulk of estate, plus had an affluent father-in-law named Samuel Boush. Norfolk County, VA Wills and Deeds Book I gives a sizeable inventory showing an affluent household. His widow Ann Boush married second to James Holt. John and Ann Boush Osheal had at least four children, John Jr, David, Samuel, and Elizabeth, according to early guardian bonds of Norfolk County, Va.

    2. David OSHEAL, b. 1723, Nansemond Co, Virginia; d. 1759, Granville, North Carolina. His property was sold in 1759 by his brother Daniel Osheal in Granville Co, NC. He is the Captain David Osheal mentioned as the brother of Teresa Osheal Agnew.

    3. Daniel OSHEAL, b. Abt. 1722, Nansemond Co, Virginia; d. Aft. 1777, (1777 to 1780) Probably in Union District, South Carolina. He married Sarah Walker. He is the Daniel Osheal mentioned by his brother-in-law Rev. John Agnew, stating that he bought a plantation from Daniel Osheal.

    4. William OSHIELDS, b. Abt. 1724, Nansemond Co, Virginia.
    This son included by inference from other original records I have located.

    5. Alice Apsley OSHEAL, b. Abt. 1725, Nansemond Co, Virginia; married William Coupland. Their son David Osheal Coupland had a Bible in which it is recorded that he was born at his grandfather David Osheals seat near Suffolk in Nansemond County, VA. (copy of Bible at Library of Virginia)

    6. Teresa OSHEAL, d. 08 Feb 1795, Monckton House, St. Mary's Parish, York Co, New Brunswick, Canada; m. Rev. John AGNEW. They had a son named Stair Agnew. (see LOYALIST CLAIMS vol. 1 by Coldham). The Agnew family were Tories in the American Revolution, while Daniel's children were staunch patriots.

    7. Ann OSHEAL, m. Edmund GODWIN. Their son Edmund Godwin left a will in New York dated July 20, 1778 where he appointed his cousin Stair Agnew executor, and he mentioned his aunt Teresa Osheal Agnew. This will is online can also be found by searching for Edmund Goodwin.

    An interesting account of David O'Sheal and Daniel Pugh:

    The research of David Travillion Bunton indicates that the Mr. Pugh and Mr Oshield mentioned by Governor William Byrd in his “Secret History of the Dividing Line” was in fact, David Osheal (ie David O’Shields) and Daniel Pugh.

    The boundry line between Virginia and North Carolina had been in dispute because of a flawed survey conducted in 1710-11 and the dispute had been severe enough that an area was prohibited from settlement by both jurisdictions. In 1728 an actual survey was begun and William Byrd was appointed one of the commissioners for the Virginia party. Byrd kept a diary and two works emerged: “The History of the Dividing Line Betwixt Virginia and North Carolina” and “The Secret History of the Line Betwixt Virginia and North Carolina” which was targeted for the entertainment of his friends in London society. Information and notes by William K. Boyd, PhD, are quite helpful in the combined works by Byrd entitled “William Byrd’s Histories of the Dividing Line Betwixt Virginia and North Carolina” (published by the North Carolina Historical Commission in 1929…the “Secret History” appears in this work on the odd numbered pages, while the other appears on the even numbered pages). The 1967 edition includes a new introduction by Percy G. Adams. For his “Secret History” Byrd utilized pseudonyms for his fellow commissioners and surveyors. Some of those of interest are as follows:

    North Carolina

    Christopher Gale (commissioner) Judge Jumble
    Edward Mosely (commissioner and surveyor) Plausible
    William Byrd (commissioner) Steady
    William Little (commissioner) Puzzlecause
    John Lovick (commissioner) Shoebrush
    Samuel Swann (surveyor) Bootes

    Virginia

    William Byrd (commissioner) Steady
    William Dandridge (commissioner) Meanwell
    Richard Fitz-william (commissioner) Firebrand
    Alexander Orion (surveyor) Orion
    William Mayo (surveyor) Astrolabe

    William Byrd included various descriptions of the country, produce, and inhabitants which provide an interesting account of the time and area. He also wrote derisively of some of his companions. From the beginning there were tensions between the Virginia group and the North Carolina group, and further difficulties were encountered in the terrain which included the Dismal Swamp, filled with reeds, briars, fallen cypress trees, and with ground so spongy that Byrd remarked “that the Prints of our Feet were instantly fill’d with Water.”

    Byrd stated on March 15, 1728 The Surveyors pursued their work with all Diligence, but Still found the Soil of the Dismal so Spongy that the Water ouzed up into every foot-step they took. To their Sorrow, too, they found the Reeds and Bryars more firmly interwoven than they did the day before. But the greatest Grievance was from large Cypresses, which the Wind had blown down and heap’d upon one another. On the Limbs of most of them grew Sharp Snags, Pointing every way like so many Pikes, that requir’d much Pains and Caution to avoid. These Trees being Evergreens, and Shooting their Large Tops Very high, are easily overset by every Gust of Wind, because there is no firm Earth to Steddy their Roots. Thus many of them were laid prostrate to the great Emcumbrance of the way. Such Variety of Difficulties maed the Business go on heavily, insomuch that, from Morning till Night, the Line could advance no further than 1 Mile and 31 Poles. Never was Rum, that cordial of Life, found more necessary than it was in this Dirty Place. It did not only recruit the People’s Spirits, now almost Jaded with Fatigue, but serv’d to correct the Badness of the Water, and at the same time to resist the Malignity of the Air.

    Byrd continued his entry of March 15, 1728:

    We sent away the Baggage about 8 a Clock under the Guard of 4 Men. We paid off a long reckoning to Capt Wilson, for our Men & Horses, but Firebrand [ie Richard Fitz-william] forgot to pay for the washing of his Linen, which saved him 2 Shillings at least. He & his Flatterer Shoebrush [ie John Lovick] left us to ourselves, intending to reach Capt. Meads [ie Andrew Meade], but losing their way, they took up at Mr. Peugh’s [sic, Pugh’s], after riding above 50 miles, & part of the way in the dark. How many Curses this Misadventure cost them I cant say, tho’ at least as many as they rode Miles…


    Byrd wrote the next day March 16, 1728 [page 69]:

    We march’t from hence about 9 always giving our Baggage the Start of Us [aside from commissioners and surveyors, the party consisted of chain-carriers, markers, horse and baggage handlers, and woodsmen for clearing trees]. We call’d at John Ive’s for a Tast of good Water, which is as rare in these parts as good Doctrine. We saw several pretty Girls here as wild as Colts, tho’ not so ragged, but drest all in their own Industry. Even those cou’d not tempt us to aligt, but we pursued our Journey with Diligence. We past by Mr. Osheild’s & Mr. Pugh’s, the last of which has a very good Brick House, & arriv’d about 4 at Capt Meads. [this was Andrew Meade, member of the House of Burgesses 1727-1734 and of the county court, Senior Captain of Militia. Colonel Andrew Meade as well as Daniel Pugh were listed at the first vestry-meeting for the Glebe Church in Nansemond County, VA].

    The Mr Osheild and Mr Pugh aforementioned are undoubtedly David O’Shields (aka David O’Sheal or David O’Sheals) and Daniel Pugh.

    Byrd and his group continued on to the household of Mr. Thomas Speight who “appear’d to be a Grandee of North Carolina” [Footnote: Thomas Speight of Perquimans County, member of the North Carolina Assembly in 1725, and Associate Justice of the General Court, 1726-1728] …”our Landlord [Thomas Speight] gave us much Concern, by affirming with some Assurance, that the Dismal cou’d not be less than 30 Miles in Breadth. All our Comfort was, that his Computation depended wholly on his own wild Conjecture. We ordered Guns to be fired & a Drum to be beaten to try if we cou’d be answer’d out of the Desert, but we had no answer…the servants ty’d the Horses so carelessly that some of them did our Landlord much Damage in his Fodder. I was the more concern’d at this, because the poor Man did all he cou’d to supply our Wants. Firebrand [Richard Fitzwilliam] & the Parson lay single while some were oblig’d to stow 3 in a Bed. Nor cou’d lying soft & alone cure the first of these of swearing outrageously in his Sleep.

    March 19, 1728 We dispatch’t Men to the North & South to fire Guns on the Edge of the Dismal by way of Signal, but cou’d gain no Intelligence of our People. Men, Women, and Children flockt from the Neighborhood, to state at us with as much Curiosity as if he had been Morrocco Embassadors. Many Children were brought to our Chaplain to be christen’d, but no Capons, so that all the good he did that way was gratis. Major Alston & Capt. Baker made us a visit & din’d with us. [Footnote: The Alstons and Bakers were families of Chowan County, NC]. My Landlord’s Daughter Rachel [Rachel Speight] offer’d her Service to wash my Linnen, & regal’d me with a Mess of Hominy toss’t up with Rank Butter & Glyster Sugar. This I was forc’t to eat, to shew that nothing from so fair a hand cou’d be disagreeable. She was a smart Lass, & when I desired th Parson to make a Memorandum of his Christenings, that we might keep an Account of the good we did, she ask’t me very pertly, who was to keep an Account of the Evil? I told her she shou’d be my Secretary for that, if she wou’d go along with me. Mr. Pugh [Daniel Pugh] & Mr. Oshield [David O’Shields] help’t to fill up our House, to that my Landlady told us in her cups, that now we must lie 3 in a Bed.

    March 20, 1728 No News yet of our Dismalities tho’ we dispatch’t Men to every point of the Compass to enquire after them. Our Visitors took their Leave, but others came in the Evening to supply their Places. Judge Jumble [Christopher Gale] who left us at Coratuck, return’d now from Edenton, and brought 3 Cormorants along with him. One was his own Brother [Edmund Gale], the 2d was Brother to Shoebrush [ie Shoebrush was John Lovick and his brother was Thomas Lovick of Chowan County, NC Collector of Customs] & the 3d Capt Genneau, who had sold his Commission & spent the money. These honest Gentlemen had no business, but to help drink out our Liquor, having very little at Home. Shoebrush’s Brother [Thomas Lovick] is a Collector, & owes his Place to a Bargain he made with Firebrand [Richard Fitzwilliam]. Never were understrappers so humble, as the N. Carolina Collectors are to this huge Man. They pay him the same Colirt they wou’d do, if they held their Commisions immediately from his Will & Pleasure. Tho’ the Case is much otherwise, because their Commissions are a good as his, being granted by the same Commissioners of his Majesty’s Customers. However he expects a World of Homage from them, calling them his Officers. Nor is he content with homage only, but he taxes them as indeed he does all the other Collectors of his Province with a hundred little Services.

    At Night the Noble Captain [Genneau] retir’d before the rest of the company, & was stepping without Ceremony into our Bed, but I arriv’d just time enough to prevent it. We cou’d not possibly be so civil to this free Gentleman, as to make him so great a Compliment: Much less let him take possession according to the Carolina Breeding without Invitation. Had Ruth or Rachel [Speight] my Landlord’s Daughters taken this Liberty; We shou’d perhaps have made no Words: but in truth the Captain had no Charms that merited so particular in Indulgence.

    March 21, 1728 Several Persons from several parts came to see Us amongst which was Mr Baker & his Brother the Surveyor of Nansimond, but cou’d tell us no Tydings from the Dismal. We began to be in pain for the Men who had been trotting in that Bogg so long, & the more because we apprehended a Famine amongst them. I had indeed given a Warrant to kill any thing that came in their way in case of Necessity, not knowing that no living Creature cou’d inhabit that in hospitable Place. My Landlord [Thomas Speight] thought our Stay here as tedious as we did, because we eat up his corn and Summer Provisions. However, the Hopes of being well paid render’d that Evil more Supportable. But Complaint being made that the Corn grew low, We retrench’t the poor Man’s Horses to one Meal a day. In the evening Plausible [Edward Mosely] & Puzzlecause [William Little] return’d to Us from Edenton, where they had been to recover the great Fatique of doing nothing, & to pick up new Scandel against their Governour.

    March 22, 1728 Our disagreeable Carolina Vistors were so kind as to take their Leave, so did Mr. Osheilds [David O’Sheal] & Capt Toot [apparently Captain Genneau], by which our Company & my Landlord’s Trouble were considerably lessen’d. We went out several Ways in the Morning, & cou’d get no intelligence. But in the Afternoon Bootes [the NC surveyor Samuel Swann] brought us the welcome News that the Surveyors & all the People were come safe out of the Dismal.

    The survey group came out of the Dismal Swamp about 6 miles from Byrd, not far from the home of Peter Brinkley where they were fed. They continued on for some miles and Byrd remarked that the survey company were “reduced to such Straights that they began to look upon John Ellis’s Dog with a longing appetite, and John Evans who was fat & well liking, had reasons to fear that he wou’d be the next Morsel…” Byrd continued “We also sent Horses for the Men, that they might come to us & refresh themselves after so dreadfull a Fatigue…it will be just to remember Captain Meads [Andrew Meade] Generosity to Us. His Cart arriv’d here Yesterday with a very handsome present to the Commissioners of Virginia. It brought them 2 Doz. Quart Bottles of Excellent Madera Wine, 1 Doz. Pottle Bottles of Strong Beer, & half a Dozen Quarts of Jamaica Rum. To this general Present was added a particular One to Meanwell [William Dandridge] of Naples-Biscuit from Mrs. Mead. At the same time we receiv’d a very Polite Letter, which gave a good Grace to his Generosity, & double our Obligation. And surely never was Bounty better timed, when it enabled us to regale the poor Dismalites whose Spirits needed some Recruit.

    On April 1, 1728 Byrd reported that they reached Richard Parkers and then proceeded past Somerton Chappel (which was left 2 miles in Virginia) to the plantation of William Speight, his plantation being cut in two by the line with his Tobacco House in Carolina.

    April 2, 1728 This Morning early Capt Baker came to make us a Visit, & explain’d to us the Reason of the present of Mutton which he sent us Yesterday. It seems the Plantation where he lives is taken into Virginia which without good Friends might prejudice him in his Surveyor’s Place of Nansimond County. But we promised to employ our Interest in his Favour. We made the best of our way to Chowan River, crossing the Line several times. About a mile before we came to that River, we crost Somerton Creek. We found our Surveyors at a little Cottage on the Banks of Chowan over against the Mouth of the Nottoway River. They told us that our Line cut Black-Water River, about half a Mile to the Northward of that Place but in Obedience to his Majesty’s Order in that Case, we directed them to continue the Line from the Middle of the Mouth of the Nottoway River. According the Surveyors post Cowan there, & carry’d the Line over a miry Swamp more than half a mile thro’, as far as an Indian Old-Field.

    In the meantime our Horses & Baggage were ferry’d over the River, a little lower, to the same Field, where we pitch’t our Tent, promising ourselves a comfortable Repose: but our Evil Genius came at Night & interrupted all our Joys. Firebrand [Richard Fitzwilliam] arriv’d with his most humble Servant Shoebrush [John Lovick], tho’ to make them less unwelcome, they brought a present from Mr Oshields [David O’Sheal] of 12 Bottles of Wine, & as many of Strong Beer. But to say the Truth we had rather have drunk Water the whole Journey to have been fairly quit of such disagreeable Company.

    Of further interest is an account of David O'Sheal and his brother Benjamin O'Sheal:

    The colonial records of NC reveal that there was a tug of war in power between Governor George Burrington and Richard Everard who replaced him in 1725. In November of 1728 David Osheal, an attorney and merchant, got Everard to appoint his brother Benjamin Osheal (formerly court clerk in Pasquotank Precinct Court and Carteret Precinct, NC in 1726) as the naval officer in charge of collected ten percent of the whale oil and whalebone on the coast off of Port Beaufort. Supposedly Ben Osheal collected some 80 barrels of oil and half ton of bone (about 500 pounds worth), and then after converting the duty to his own use, Ben Osheal fled to Gambia (Africa). Because David Osheal had signed as security for the bond for his brothers position, David Osheal was arrested and ordered to pay what his brother owed.

    The colonial records of NC which I researched in 2001 (included at that time in THE OSHEAL RECORD, THE COLONIAL HISTORY OF THE OSHEAL FAMILY by David Travillion Bunton) mentioned David Osheal being fined and hauled off to jail for "a bond entered into at Edenton [NC] as security for the faithful discharge of a naval office..."

    The naval office was that of his brother Benjamin Osheal who was christened at St Martin in the Fields, Middlesex, London on 25 July 1705 (parents John Osheal and Alice Apsley).
    David was fined 50 pounds and "dragged away to the common Gaol in a very rough manner which was broke open on the occasion and with the judges assistance the said David was thrust into it and another Lock put on, and he locked up and kept till weary of so noisome a place the Gentleman [Osheal] was compelled to pay the money to be discharged, which the judge also recieved himself." The Judge Edward Porter had a lot of complaints against him, including this one by Osheal, and it was felt that the judge abused his power.
    Source records on Benjamin Osheal and David Osheal are included in North Carolina’s Vice Admiralty Papers.

    There is an excellent article on whaling of this period, which mentions my Osheal forbears. It was originally published in The North Carolina Historical Review in January 1988 (Volume 65, pages 1 to 51) under title “The Pursuit of Leviathan: A History of Whaling on the North Carolina Coast” by Marcus B. Simpson Jr and Sallie W. Simpson. Local libraries often have this journal or can obtain it through inter library loan. It provides an excellent account of shore-based whaling on the coast which was conducted by local fishing communities along the Atlantic coast during the colonial period, from Maine to South Carolina, according to Simpson.

    On pages 13-14, Simpson quotes a petition revealing that Ben O’Sheal, was originally empowered to “receive the Tenths of Whale Oyl & Bone Catched on the Sea Coast of the said Port.” [footnote 48: Petition of Richard Everard to Edmund Porter, July 23, 1730, Court Order for David Osheal, August 3, 1730, Vice-Admiralty Papers, CCR 191; Order of Edmund Porter to Marshal of Court, August 3, 1730, Vice-Admiralty Papers, CCR 142.]

    The transcription by David Travillion Bunton of an entry concerning his ancestor David Osheal, the great-grandfather of Elizabeth Osheal Hewitt, is as follows:

    Virginia Gazette, page 4 column 2, dated Jan 11, 1740

    Lost on the 1st of December last, riding from Major Oshealls Plantation in Nansemond, through the Swamp to Mr. Turners, Inspector at Sleepy-Hole,thence to Mr. Thomas Brickles at Sleepy Hole, and from thence back to Major
    Osheals, a Silver Tumbler of a Seal, engraved on one Side a Lyon Rampant, Or, in a Field Vert, the Motto, Deus nobis haec otta fecit; on another Side, a Crest, a Hand and Arm armed, holding a Mans Head by the Hair; on the third Side, the Letters I O in a Cypher. Whoever returns it to the
    Subcriber, shall be rewarded to the full Value of it.

    Also Strayd from the same Plantation, on the 26th of the same Month, 8 Sheep, of Several Marks, purchasd a few Days before from an Eastern Shore Man, and remarked with a Hole in one Ear, one had a Bell about its neck. Whoever informs what is become of them, shall be reasonably rewarded, by David Osheal.

    Note by O'Sheal - O'Shields Historian David T.Bunton:

    The letters IO in cipher are Latin for the intials JO, which in all likelihood refer to John Osheal, the father of David Osheal. David O'Sheal apparently inherited this tumbler after his father's death in 1736.

    The family motto appears to have been taken from the writing of the Roman poet Virgil (Eclogue I, written in 37 BC) where it can be translated loosely as God has given us this place of rest, God has provided us this rest,or
    God has provided this leisure for us. Other families which share this motto include the Boleyn and Bolgur, etc families and the translation is given as God has given us this tranquility.

    The motto can also be found on state seals and city coat of arms. It amuses me that the University of Liverpool has the latin motto Haec otia studia fovent translating as This leisure makes our studies flourish or These
    days of peace foster learningthis is in answer to the City of Liverpool motto of Deus nobis haec otia fecit.

    In response to those kind folks requesting a bit of my knowledge and research of the early Oshields family maybe this will give some of our family members a bit of help in figuring out our history. In particular those researchers tracing the Oshields family of Spartanburg Co, SC, may be interested in some of the early information I have gathered over the decades that I have spent in researching my different family lines. My research and compilation entitled THE COLONIAL HISTORY OF THE OSHEAL FAMILY, ie THE OSHEAL RECORD (copyright 2001, and onwards to current date) details the following, but I will also include some additional source references in this posting should anyone be interested. Included in my compilation of the Colonial History of the O'Sheal Family,THE OSHEAL RECORD, are original records and references, but I am including in this posting the mentions of several of the references in order to provide leads to those who are interested in chasing things down in more detail in their own local libraries. As far as to the reliability of this information, I can only state that any errors will be mine, as all the information in this posting was researched and verified by me, from papers passed down in my family, as well as my research in many books at my local library and others libraries here in Arkansas. I am sure that other libraries carry these titles as well, as some are standard reference works that have been widely available for decades. Other sources I have consulted include the microfilm from LDS where one can read tons of court, deed, and miscellaneous records, which is what I used to read the early SC, NC, and VA deeds page by page. I found out many years ago the hard way, that if someone sent me a reference, to not just take their word for it, but to go to the source myself and study it. Thankfully all these resources were available right here locally, so I have been able to do this with all the information in this posting. This information is derived entirely from my own research, with a bow of acknowledgment to my cousin Pearl who also researched our family over 100 years ago. I am grateful to her for providing things which would now be lost if it hadn’t been for her foresight, as well as my great great grandmothers foresight.My direct ancestors that I have been able to personally research and verify include John Osheal, who was a merchant tailor living in London, England. I will omit some of the details I have collected concerning him and just start with his marriage. For many years the IGI has listed his marriage to Alice Apsley, age 22, as occurring on 5 June 1688 in London, England. I ordered microfilm from the LDS church (number 845262) which shows the transcription of the church registers for St. Katherine by the Tower. The title is The Register of St. Katherine by the Tower, London 1687-1726, transcribed by AW Hughes Clarke. I might mention also that my cousin Pearl, now deceased, had been in contact with Mr. Hughes Clarke many decades ago, and also confirmed this marriage and our descent from John Osheal and Alice Apsley through their son David Osheal, his son Daniel, his son Jethro Osheal, his daughter Elizabeth Apsley Osheal Hewitt, and etc. Eventually the Osheal family became known by O'shields, and the names of Daniel Oshields, David Oshields, and Jethro Oshields were sometimes carried into the later generations.

    On page 23 of the book by Hughes Clarke, published by the Harleian Society in 1948 and 1949, the entry reads:John Osheal of St. Martins in the Fields, merchant, and Alice Apsley of said parish, spr. (spinster), aged about 22. There is an L following this which probably means a license was granted.Further films I have ordered in past years were 560371 and 560372 which together have several of the children of John Osheal and his wife Alice Apsley.

    The first born named John was baptized in 1689, but apparently died as a small child because he had a brother also named John born in 1696/97. The dual year is how the register years were recorded due to changing calendars.In giving the children of John Osheal and wife Alice Apsley I will include the varying spellings of the surname as I have interpreted it from my study of the original handwriting in the 17th century baptismal registers. All were baptized in the Church of England (Anglican) at the St. Martin-in-the-Fields Church, Westminster, Middlesex, London, England.

    The children of John Osheal and Alice Apsley were:
    1. John Osheal of John and Alice, baptized 7 June 1689.
    2. David Oshell of John and Alice, born 23 Jan 1690
    3. John Oshel of John and Alice born 17 March 1696/97
    4. Barnard Osheal of John and Alice born 16 Jan 1699/1700
    5. Benjamin Osheal of John and Alice born 13 July 1705, baptized on 25 July 1705.

    Of the above named children of John Osheal and Alice Apsley I believe at least two immigrated to America. I have found Benjamin mentioned in early NC records, as well as David Osheal, my ancestor. One of the earliest mentions of David Osheal was in a Virginia land patent record I located which was dated 16 June 1714 where a grant of land was given to Richard Parker for the importation of six persons, one of whom was David Osheal. I assume he was imported either in the Spring of 1714 or 1713, so David would have been about 23 or 24 years of age.

    The reference for this deed, as well as others in THE COLONIAL HISTORY OF THE O'SHEAL FAMILY--THE OSHEAL RECORD, can be found online in the Virginia library and also in the set of volumes entitled CAVALIERS AND PIONEERS: ABSTRACTS OF VIRGINIA LAND PATENTS AND GRANTS by Nell Marion Nugent. I found the reference to this deed in this set at my local library--it is widely available in many others as well. By looking at the online Virginia library site, one can see the original record. David Osheal probably married not too long after his importation to Elizabeth Pugh. Although no marriage record exists, her identity comes from a memoir by Jethro Osheal's daughter Elizabeth Apsley Osheal Hewitt, as written by her granddaughter Clarinda Cowan Harris, and thus descended to me, the great great grandson of the author Clarinda Cowan Harris.

    David Osheal was an early attorney in Nansemond County and Norfolk County, Virginia and was known as Major and later Colonel Osheal, and info on some of his cases in NC can be found in the COLONIAL RECORDS OF NORTH CAROLINA, a series in my local library as well as other libraries in Arkansas. Other online links can be found for David Osheal appearing in early issues of the Virginia Gazette.My research into the children of David Osheal and Elizabeth Pugh comes from public records as well as records maintained by my branch of the family for well over 100 years show the following children of David and Elizabeth Pugh Osheal:

    1. John OSHEAL, b. Abt. 1716, Nansemond Co, Virginia; d. 1749, Norfolk Co, Virginia, m. Ann BOUSCH. Being the oldest son (per my review of early deeds between father and son), John inherited the bulk of estate, plus had an affluent father-in-law named Samuel Boush. Norfolk County, VA Wills and Deeds Book I gives a sizeable inventory showing an affluent household. His widow Ann Boush married second to James Holt. John and Ann Boush Osheal had at least four children, John Jr, David, Samuel, and Elizabeth, according to early guardian bonds of Norfolk County, Va.

    2. David OSHEAL, b. 1723, Nansemond Co, Virginia; d. 1759, Granville, North Carolina. He apparently had no issue since his property was sold in 1759 by his brother Daniel Osheal in Granville Co, NC.

    3. Daniel OSHEAL, b. Abt. 1722, Nansemond Co, Virginia; d. Aft. 1777, Probably in Spartanburg District, South Carolina. He married Sarah Walker.

    4. William O’SHIELDS, b. Abt. 1724, Nansemond Co, Virginia.
    This son included by inference from other original records I have located.

    5. Alice Apsley OSHEAL, b. Abt. 1725, Nansemond Co, Virginia; married William Coupland.

    6. Teresa OSHEAL, d. 08 Feb 1795, Monckton House, St. Mary's Parish, York Co, New Brunswick, Canada; m. Rev. John AGNEW. They had a son named Stair Agnew. (see LOYALIST CLAIMS vol. 1 by Coldham). The Agnew family were Tories in the American Revolution, while Daniel’s children were staunch patriots.

    7. Ann OSHEAL, m. Edmund GODWIN. Their son Edmund Godwin left a will in New York dated July 20, 1778 where he appointed his cousin Stair Agnew executor, and he mentioned his aunt Teresa Osheal Agnew. This will is online can also be found by searching for Edmund Goodwin.

    8. daughter OSHEAL who married and had daughter Penelope who married first William Forsyth and second Lieutenant D'Ende(for more on this refer to another volume in my local library entitled AMERICAN LOYALIST CLAIMS (vol 1) by Peter Wilson Coldham)

    9. daughter OSHEAL. info not given at this time in this posting.

    As well as outlining some of the law cases of David Osheal in the series of books NC COLONIAL RECORDS, there are also mentions of David's son Daniel who was a militia captain and had lands (which he ultimately mostly lost) in Edgecombe County and Granville County, NC.Researchers have wondered about the year of birth for Daniel O'Sheal. I personally came up with the year of 1722 on this conjecture:I have surmised that Daniel Osheal was born about 1722 or a bit before since a 1743 NC petition confirms a grant to him in 1743. (reference Col. Records of NC). He would have been at least 21 years old in 1743.Daniel Osheal married Sarah Walker in Granville County, NC, after the birth of their daughter Elizabeth Walker. Daniel might have been a bit of a rake to some extent, as he enjoyed having a good time, liked horse racing, and a bit of gambling. In 1759 Daniel Osheal entered into a 10 pound bond in apparent support of his friend Owin Read, who was accused of passing counterfeit money at a horse race. More info can be found about this in another volume at my local library by Thomas McAdory Owen entitled HISTORY AND GENEALOGIES OF OLD GRANVILLE COUNTY, NC 1746-1800. It was in the lifetime of Daniel Osheal's children and grandchildren that the surname began being spelled Oshields as well as the traditional Osheal.

    Here are a few bits on Daniel's children from my compilation, THE OSHEAL RECORD, THE COLONIAL HISTORY OF THE O'SHEAL FAMILY.

    The first four children, Elizabeth, Apsley, John and Jethro, have been well documented to be the children of Daniel Osheal and Sarah Walker and further research by me indicates the additional names for children 5and 6:

    1.Elizabeth O’SHIELDS, b. 1755, Granville Co, North Carolina; m. Joshua SMITH

    2. Apsley O’SHIELDS, b. Abt. 1757, Gransville, North Carolina; d. 25 Mar 1841, Spartanburg, Spartanburg Co, South Carolina; m. John LANCASTER 18 Aug 1778 in Bute Co, North Carolina.

    3. John O’SHIELDS, b. 1761, North Carolina; d. Abt. 1841, Spartanburg, Spartanburg Co, South Carolina. Revolutionary War soldier.

    4. Jethro O’SHIELDS, b. 1763, Granville Co, North Carolina; d. 1844, Spartanburg County, South Carolina. Revolutionary War soldier.

    5. Teresa Oshields (known as Treacy or Tracy), born 1760-1764 probably in NC.She is listed in the 1800 Spartanburg Co, SC census with her first name as Creasy, and living by one Nancy Wooten. Treasy is documented as having a daughter named Elizabeth Oshields who married Tyree Harrison. The daughter-in-law of this Elizabeth Oshields Harrison recorded in a memoir that Elizabeth Oshields Harrison had a step-father named Wooten.

    6. Jefferson O’SHIELDS, Enumerated on the 1820 Spartanburg District, SC census age over 45 (born before 1775).


    The Daniel Osheal family left NC to go to Georgia (an interesting anecdote was recorded about the trip from Georgia to SC by Daniel’s granddaughter) and the family ultimately came to settle in Union and Spartanburg Co, SC. The 1790 Spartanburg Co, SC census records the widow Sarah OShiel who was still living at that time. The surname Apsley descended from my original ancestress Alice Apsley, wife of John Osheal. The immigrant ancestor David Osheal named his daughter Alice Apsley Osheal (she married William Coupland). Daniel continued the tradition by naming one of his daughters Apsley Osheal (she married John Lancaster and lived in Union Co, SC) and then Daniel's son Jethro Osheal named one of his daughters Elizabeth Apsley Osheal, who married Rev. James Hewitt. Fortunately this same Elizabeth Apsley Osheal Hewitt had her memories of the Osheal family recorded by her granddaughter and descendants of my line have researched the Oshields history for well over 100 years, which I have maintained along with my research and other records, chronologies, and etc in THE COLONIAL HISTORY OF THE O'SHEAL FAMILY ie THE OSHEAL RECORD.Thank you to all the researchers who have contacted me over the years, and with thanks to those who have properly credited my research and my compilation, THE OSHEAL RECORD. We have an interesting family which I have enjoyed researching and continue to do so.If I can help others with our Oshields ancestry, I will be glad to try. Should you have records to share do please direct any additions or further questions to my email travillion@hotmail.com or the address below, which can be forwarded to me.

    RE: research of the early O'Shields Genealogy (ie O'Sheal Genealogy )

    O'Shields Immigrant to America: David O'Sheal 1690-1745 of London, England and Nansemond County, Virginia

    David O'Sheal, also known to some researchers as David O'Shields, was the immigrant ancestor to America for my branch of the O'Sheal and O'Shields family. David O'Sheal arrived in Virginia and his descendants now reside across America, but in particular inhabit the south and west-- states of South Carolina, North Carolina, Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee, Arkansas, Missouri, Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado, California, Washington, Oregon. If your O'Shields family lives or lived in any of these states, there is good chance that your family branch is connected to me and my immigrant ancestor David O'Sheal and his wife Elizabeth Pugh.

    I was fortunate because some members of my family (ie descendants of Elizabeth O'Sheal Hewitt born 1793, daughter of Jethro O'Sheal who was born 1763) maintained records and researched the family for over 100 years, and in 2001 I made a compilation entitled THE OSHEAL RECORD, THE COLONIAL HISTORY OF THE OSHEAL FAMILY. In 2001 my research included, among other things, a chronology of public records, land patents and records as I had found in Cavaliers and Pioneers and at the Library of Virginia, as well as military papers for various ancestors. My research includes both the Patriot and loyalist branches of the family. Of note was my chronology of the court cases and papers of my ancestor David O'Sheal, which was the first chronology of such records. I am currently expanding, revising, and updating my 2001 compilation on the O'Shields ancestry, and invite interested researchers to email me direct at travillion@hotmail.com.

    Following are a few facts of interest for those researching the O'Shields and O'Sheal family in America who think they might trace back to David O'Sheal aka David O'Shields:

    David O'Sheal was born 23 January 1690 in St. Martin in the Fields Parish, Westminster, London, England, son of John Osheal and Alice Apsley. I am thankful to a dear cousin who lived to be 100 years "young" for the information on David O'Sheal being the son of John O'Sheal and Alice Apsley and much more, and I continued on with the history and I also researched their children in baptismal records of the Anglican church, which provided the names of David's siblings, including his brother Benjamin O'Sheal, who also came to America some years after his elder brother David. This "Uncle Ben" left America, after a bit of scandal, and removed to Gambia, Africa.

    David immigrated to Nansemond County, Virginia previous to 16 June 1714 when Richard Parker was granted land in Nansemond County for the importation of six persons, one named David Osheal. His actual time of immigration could have been as early as 1711, thus 300 years ago, but in any case, it is clear the immigrant O'Shields ancestor was in Virginia by 1714. My research has shown that often the persons named as imported, such as David O'Sheal, could have lived in the area for several years before being named. It was advantageous for those seeking land to obtain importees or immigrants, in order to obtain land. In some cases the importees were coming from another state outwith Virginia, such as Maryland, but in the case of our O'Shields ancestor, David O'Sheal, he came from England. His ancestors were Irish.

    According to family accounts, David O'Sheal married Elizabeth Pugh, said to be the daughter of one Daniel Pugh of Nansemond County, VA.

    The David O'Sheal family, (it was the later generations of the O'Sheal family who became known as O'Shields), had a properous business as lawyer, recorder, planter, and merchant.

    His oldest son John also became a merchant and attorney. He married Ann Boush and lived at Norfolk, Va.

    His son David O'Sheal Jr died in North Carolina and the records show that his property came into the hands of his brother Daniel Osheal and sister Theresa Agnew, in agreement with the law of the times.

    Daniel Osheal, the third son, is believed to have been the namesake of Daniel Pugh, his grandfather. He married Sarah Walker and most of their children settled in Spartanburg County, SC. (NOTE: I descend from their son Jethro O'Sheal aka Jethro O'Shields, whose daughter Elizabeth O'Sheal married Rev. James Hewitt of Spartanburg County, SC and later Gordon County, Georgia.)

    Alice Apsley Osheal, married William Coupland, and she is believed to be the namesake of her grandmother Alice Apsley, wife of John Osheal of England.

    Theresa Osheal married Rev. John Agnew, an Anglican minister and loyalist, and eventually left Virginia and, after a sojourn to England, went to New Brunswick, Canada.

    Ann Osheal married Edmund Godwin.

    Notes:

    Birth: 1660
    Death: Apr., 1736, England

    John O'Sheal was a merchant taylor of St. Martin in the Fields Parish, Middlesex, London, England who married Alice Apsley on 5 June 1688 at St. Katherine by the Tower, London, England. The burial record dated 13 April 1736 for John O'Sheal of St Martin in the Fields Parish, is recorded on page 76 of the Westminster Burials Transcripts. John O'Sheal is the father of Col. David O'Sheal (1690-1745) immigrant to Virginia who settled in Nansemond County, VA. He was a merchant and attorney in Virginia and North Carolina. Sources state he inherited his father John Osheals tumbler (see reference below from the Virginia Gazette when he advertised its loss):

    David Travillion Bunton has transcribed a newspaper entry concerning the family crest and motto of the family and the immigrant David Osheal as follows:

    Virginia Gazette, page 4 column 2, dated Jan 11, 1740

    Lost on the 1st of December last, riding from Major Oshealls Plantation in Nansemond, through the Swamp to Mr. Turners, Inspector at Sleepy-Hole,thence to Mr. Thomas Brickles at Sleepy Hole, and from thence back to Major
    Osheals, a Silver Tumbler of a Seal, engraved on one Side a Lyon Rampant, Or, in a Field Vert, the Motto, Deus nobis haec otta fecit; on another Side, a Crest, a Hand and Arm armed, holding a Mans Head by the Hair; on the third Side, the Letters I O in a Cypher. Whoever returns it to the
    Subcriber, shall be rewarded to the full Value of it.

    Also Strayd from the same Plantation, on the 26th of the same Month, 8 Sheep, of Several Marks, purchasd a few Days before from an Eastern Shore Man, and remarked with a Hole in one Ear, one had a Bell about its neck. Whoever informs what is become of them, shall be reasonably rewarded, by David Osheal.

    Note by David T.Bunton:

    The letters IO in cipher are the latin intials for JO, which in all likelihood refer to John Osheal, the father of David Osheal.

    The family motto appears to have been taken from the writing of the Roman poet Virgil (Eclogue I, written in 37 BC) where it can be translated loosely as God has given us this place of rest, God has provided us this rest,or God has provided this leisure for us. Other families which share this motto include the Boleyn and Bolgur, etc families and the translation is given as God has given us this tranquility.

    The motto can also be found on state seals and city coat of arms. It amuses me that the University of Liverpool has the latin motto Haec otia studia fovent translating as This leisure makes our studies flourish or These days of peace foster learningthis is in answer to the City of Liverpool motto of Deus nobis haec otia fecit.

    John O'Sheal died in 1736, his son David O'Sheal died in 1745, his son Daniel O'Sheal died in 1780, his son Jethro O'Sheal died in 1846, and his daughter Elizabeth O'Sheal Hewitt died in 1873.
