In 1619, a year marked by several important events in the 
Colony, including the assembling of the first General As- 
sembly, the London Company adopted a "Cote for Virginia'". 
The coat-of-arms has been a puzzle and source of specula- 
tion to every historian and has been sometimes confused with 
the proper seal of the Colony itself. It is found as a book 
plate or frontispiece in nearly all of the printed acts and 
official proceedings of the Colonial government. It appears 
in Smith's Generall Historie of Virginia, editions 1624 and 
1632 ; in Beverley's History of Virginia, in several issues of 
the Virginia Gazette, and in Stow's Survey of London, pub- 
lished in 1633. It was changed slightly from time to time 
to make the quarterings agree with the arms of the different 
reigning houses, and after the union of England and Scot- 
land "quartam" succeeded "quintum" in the motto. The 
illustration is from the title page of Merchants of Virginia 
in the Virginia State Library and the colors were selected 
arbitrarily.

Cover: 

The Coat-of-Arms on the cover has been adopted as the symbol of the entire 
work and will be used to identify the five volumes as typically Virginian. 
The escutcheon is quartered with a ship, scroll, tobacco leaf and dogwood 
blossom, crested by the Indian maiden Pocahontas. The supporters represent 
a cavalier and a pioneer. The colors were selected arbitrarily.

Early Colonial Seals 





Seal of the Virginia Company 




Seal of Virginia after the Restoration 



The Seal of the Supreme Council in England was closely 
identified with the settlement in Virginia. The obverse of 
the seal on the left is from The Seals of Virginia by Edward 
S. Evans, and was taken from Egerton Mss. 2,087 fo. 3 in 
the British Museum. It is from a certificate of payment for a 
share in a venture to Virginia. The reverse of the seal on the 
right has been retouched to conform as near as possible to the 
original and was taken from Neill's Virginia Vetusta, p. 4. 



The lack of a Seal in the Colony extended over the period 
of the Commonwealth and over part of the first year in the 
reign of Charles II, who was restored to the throne in May. 
1660. Less than a year later a new seal was devised, en- 
graved and sent to the Colony. The illustration is from 
Evans' The Seals of Virginia. In the Virginia Historical 
Society collections there is among the Ludwell Mss. a patent, 
dated 27th of October, 1663, bearing this seal. Other speci- 
mens in the Virginia State Library, are a patent granted by 
Sir William Berkeley to Thomas Bushrod in Westmoreland 
County, dated 2nd July, 1669, and a patent granted by Sir 
William Berkeley, dated 13th of March, 1667, to William 
Dudley in Lancaster. 




GENERAL FOREWORD 

God sifted a whole nation that He might 
send His choice grain into the Wilderness. 

NTO the wilderness of the new world I am certain God 
sent the choice grain of many nations, and it is upon the 
fruit of this planting my thoughts dwell as I lay aside 
my completed work for this first volume. I wish everyone 
interested in the foundation and preservation of these 
United States could stand in the shadows of the Old Church at Jamestown 
and the Old Rock at Plymouth and, gazing seaward, visualize those little 
ships as they approached the shores of this land of promise. The emotion 
I feel is as deep and my appreciation as sincere when I go to Plymouth 
as when I stand on Jamestown Island. Consecrated by the blood of noble 
men and courageous women, 'tis hallowed ground. By whatever name 
they are called — Cavalier, Pilgrim or Puritan — they were all Pioneers, and 
to those dauntless souls who made history in the memorable years 1607 
and 1620 we owe a debt of eternal gratitude. Numerous names and 
deeds have escaped recordation, due in many instances to the destruction 
of records, but it is hoped these Abstracts will, in a small measure, 
perpetuate the indomitable spirit of these pathfinders of the sea and those 
who later blazed trails across the western frontier — the inspiration and 
keynote of American progress and independence. 

In handling these old manuscript volumes one realizes there is much 
of romance and tragedy, as well as of history and genealogy, bound 
within them. There is evidence of the ravages of time and mute testimony 
of mutilation by persons unaware of their value and true significance. 
A brief summary of the Land Office records to 1800 is as follows: 
45 volumes or 24,983 pages of Colonial Patents; 22y 2 volumes or 8,371 
pages of Northern Neck Deeds (issued by Thomas, Lord Fairfax, begin- 
ning in 1690) ; 67 volumes or 47,769 pages of Commonwealth Grants 
(beginning in 1779) and l l / 2 volumes or 4,782 pages of Northern Neck 



x. General Foreword 



Grants subsequent to the Revolutionary War, making a total of 142 
manuscript volumes, representing 85,905 pages. 

Renewals of original patents by the Regal Government is often con- 
fusing and the tendency to accept each entry as a new patent is so 
prevalent, attention is called to renewals, as cited in these Abstracts, which 
greatly reduces the actual number of acres to individuals and indicates 
many conveyances were merely confirmations of earlier titles. No attempt 
will be made to approximate the acreage granted by the Commonwealth, 
as overlapping grants create complications, an explanation of which 
requires the combined skill and ingenuity of lawyers and engineers. 
Alexander Wolcott and Robert Morris were two of a great number to 
whom the State of Virginia, in the post-Revolutionary period, issued 
paper title to enormous tracts of land. Their grants range from 1,000 to 
350,000 acres, aggregating, respectively, 1,012,500 and 1,590,560 acres. 
For those who are not familiar with the political subdivisions of the 
State, and those who may never see the original records, maps of historical 
significance are used as end sheets and inserted in these volumes, as well 
as photographic reproductions of patents and grants. 

Words cannot express my appreciation to Miss Sitterding, my 
Patroness; to the Honourable George Campbell Peery, Governor of 
Virginia, who wrote a personal letter to the Clerks of the various county 
courts, I am grateful for the assurance that none of the early Patent Books 
are filed in said courts. To Mr. John W. Garner, of Falls Church, Dr. 
Robert Armistead Stewart, Dr. Earl G. Swem, Dr. W. J. Showalter, 
Dr. Thomas Perkins Abernethy, Honourable Wilmer L. Hall, State 
Librarian, and The Dietz Press I am deeply appreciative of their interest 
and co-operation.

INTRODUCTION 

jN the series of volumes of Land Patents deposited in the 
Virginia Land Office in the Capitol Building, Richmond, 
the Commonwealth possesses one of the great historical 
treasures of America — the record of land granted to 
"Adventurers and Planters" from overseas and in the 
course of time to native-born Virginians and others, extending, apart 
from a hiatus of two years, from the year 1624 (with a few grants 
surviving from an earlier period) to the opening of the nineteenth century. 
Through the labors of the Custodian of the Virginia Land Archives, 
Mrs. Nell M. Nugent, eminently qualified for the tremendous task by 
reason of her early legal training and her experience with court records, 
these invaluable documents are now made generally accessible to the 
student of history and to the genealogist, in the form of abstracts contain- 
ing all names of persons and of places, dates and land bounds recorded 
therein, with the inclusion in their entirety of certain patents in order to 
exhibit legal formulae of grants varying with succeeding governments 
and administrations. To this wealth of material a comprehensive Index 
furnishes the key. 

The fruit of devoted industry and zeal, this work must challenge 
attention as a contribution of the first rank to the published historical 
documents concerning the earliest permanent British plantation in America 
and the Commonwealth that emerged from it. 

The Historical Background 

On April 10, 1606 Letters Patents were granted by James the First 
King of England, &c. to Sir Thomas Gates, Sir George Somers, Knights, 
Richard Hackluit, Clerk, Prebendary of Westminster, Edward-Maria 
Wingfield, and others * * * adventurers of and for our City of London 
* * * for two several Colonies and Plantations to be made in Virginia 
and other parts and Territories of America.* 

♦Herring's "Statutes at Large," Vol. I, p. 59. 



xii. Cavaliers and Pioneers 

A governing body was established in England called "Our Council of 
Virginia" with an approved seal, which was to designate the local Council 
in the colony, And it was further decreed, "that all and every the persons 
being our subjects, which shall dwell and inhabit within every or any of 
the said several colonies and plantations and every of their children, which 
shall happen to be born within any of the limits and precincts of the said 
several colonies and plantations, shall have and enjoy all liberties, fran- 
chises, and immunities, within any of our other dominions, to all intents 
and purposes, as if they had been abiding and born, within the realm of 
England, or any other of our said dominions." 

Under the power of this charter and through the enterprise of the 
adventurers resulted the sailing of the Susan Constant, the Godspeed, and 
the Discovery, the arrival at Jamestown on May 13, 1607, and the plant- 
ing of one hundred settlers. Eight or nine months afterwards came the 
"First Supply" of one hundred and twenty colonists in the John & Francis 
and the Phenix, and in October, 1608 arrived the "Second Supply," the 
Mary Margett, with sixty persons "mostly gentlemen, few or no tradesmen 
except some Polanders to Make Pitch, tarre, potashes &c. * * *" 

The Second Charter,* signed and sealed on May 23, 1609, granted to 
the adventurers mentioned in the First Charter and to others the formation 
of "one body or commonalty perpetual, to be known as the Treasurer 
and Company of Adventurers of the City of London for the First Colony 
of Virginia" — the London Company. Under this reorganization of 1609 
the administration of local affairs was delegated to a governor and a 
Council to reside in the Colony. Sir Thomas Smythe became the first 
Treasurer of the Company. 

"Nominated as Planters were those that go there in person to dwell 
themselves and Adventurers those who adventure their mony and go not 
in person and both do make the members of one Colony." A single share 
in the Company was rated at twelve pounds ten shillings. 

The presidents of the Virginia council under the First Charter were 
Edward-Maria Wingfield, Mathew Scrivener, Capt. John Smith, and George 
Percy, son of the eighth Earl of Northumberland. In later days John Rolfe, 
husband of Pocahontas, voiced an objection to this system of government: 
"The beginning of this plantation was governed by a president and coun- 
cill, aristocratically and in this government happened all the miserie."f

Introduction xiii. 



Under the second charter Sir Thomas Gates, who "had the honour 
to all posterity to be the first named in his Majestys Pattent of graunt in 
Virginia," was chosen the first and absolute governor. In June, 1609 he 
left England in a fleet of seven ships, known as the "Third Supply," 
carrying about 500 settlers. The ships were unhappily scattered by a 
tempest, and Sir Thomas' own vessel wrecked on the coast of Bermuda. 
The other six ships of the fleet proceeded to Virginia, and reached the 
settlement in safety. But, after some months, all the colonists were "in the 
extremity of famine" when "unexpected, yet happily arrived Sir Thomas 
Gates & Sir George Somers in two small Barques, which they built in the 
Sommer Islands after the wreake of the Sea adventure whereon they set 
forth from Englande, with them one hundred persons barely provided of 
vittel for themselves." 

The new comers, on their arrival on May 20, 1611, discovered no 
more than sixty of the settlers alive "most famished and at pointe of 
death, of whom many soon died." In 1609 Capt. Smith had "divided 
into three partes and dispersed about for their better releife, The 
first under command of Captain Francis West to seat at the head of 
the River ; a second under command of Captain John Smith, the President, 
at James Towne, & the other, with Capt. John Martin in the River at 
Nansamun."* 

In the year 1610, however, Gates, despairing of maintaining the 
Colony, resolved with the consent of the Council "to embarque themselves 
& this poor remainder of the Collonye, in those two pinnaces [in which 
Gates and Somers had arrived] & two other small Barques then in the 
River to sett saile for Newfoundland where they might relieve their wants 
& procure one safer passage for Englande * * * but when we had sailed 
down the river about twelve miles we espied a boat which afterwards we 
understoode came from the right Honourable Lord La Ware, who was 
then arrived at Point Comfort with three good shipps, wherein he brought 
two hundred and fifty persons with some store of provisions * * * Sir 
Thomas Gates understandinge that his Lordship was arrived with a com- 
mission from the Company to be Governor & Capt Genl of Virginia and 
had brought men & provisions for the subsistinge & advancinge of the

Plantation, he the very next day to the grief e of all his Company (only 
except Capt. John Martin) as winde & weather gave leave, retorned his 
whole company with charge to take possession again of those poor 
ruinated habitations at James Towne." 

The new Governor devoted himself to directing the repair and forti- 
fication of the settlement, but, balked by the Indians in his plan to dispatch 
an expedition to the mountains in search of gold and silver, he departed, 
broken in health, for the West Indies, whence he shortly afterwards 
returned to England. With only Jamestown and Point Comfort held by 
the settlers Capt. George Percy administered as deputy governor. About 
a fortnight after De La Warr's departure arrived in Virginia a small ship 
called the Hercules with some thirty persons and provisions. 

After Percy left Virginia on April 22, 1612 Gates, Dale, Yeardley 
and Argall successively held the post of deputy governor. 

On March 27, 1611 Sir Thomas Dale left Land's End for Virginia, 
with 300 people in three ships and three carvels, and carrying domestic 
animals and supplies. In the judgment of the London Company he "not 
only adventured his person in that service in a time of the greatest 
difficulty but alsoe being at a great charge in furthering the action and 
furnishing him selfe, the Council of Virginia at their meeting on the 
18th of this instant * * * agree that his person shall be Rated at the 
Summe of Seven hundred pounds and that he the said Sr Thomas Dale 
his heires Exors. & Admrs. or assignes shall have ratably according to the 
said Summe his & their full part of all such Lands Tenements and 
hereditaments as shall from time to time be their recovered planted and 
inhabited (&c) * * * Feb. 25, [1610/11]."* 

Dale, who served as deputy governor until August 1, 1611, and, after 
Gates left the Colony, from March, 1614 to May, 1616, reached Fort 
Algernourne, or Point Comfort, on May 22, 1611. Having left James 
Davis as captain of the fort at Point Comfort, Dale proceeded to restore 
forts Charles and Henry at the mouth of Hampton River, and then went 
to Jamestown. 

After effecting improvements at the first settlement he removed about 
Michaelmas with three hundred persons for the building of Henrico Town, 
otherwise Henricopolis (the present Dutch Gap). During his adminis- 
tration also occurred the planting of Bermuda Hundred, Charles City

Hundred, Curls, Coxendale, and Shirley Hundred. He undertook the 
setting up of salt works. But all his achievements resulted from submit- 
ting the people to measures of uncommon severity — a species of martial 
law that found favor with Sir Thomas Gates. The London Company 
likewise was not unappreciative : "Sir Thomas Dale building upon those 
foundacons [laid by Sir Thomas Gates] with great & constant severity, 
reclaymed almost miraculously those idle and disordered people and re- 
duced them to labour and an honest fashion of life, and proceeding with 
great zeale to the good of this Company, set up the Common Garden to 
yield them a standing revennue, placed servants upon it, as also upon other 
Publique workes for the Companies use, Established an Annuall rent of 
Corne for the ffarmers, Of Tribute Corne from the Barbarians, together 
with a great stock of Kine, Goates, and other Cattle, being the goodes of 
the Companie for the service of the Publique, which hath since beene 
the occasion of drawing so many perticuler Plantacons to seate in Virginia 
upon hope and promise of plenty of Corne and Catle to be lent them 
from the Publique, for their ease and benefitt upon their first arrivall, 
But since their times all these publique provisions havinge beene utterly 
laid wast by such meanes as hereafter in due time shall appeare." 

However, despite all Dale's activities, only three hundred persons 
were living in Virginia and his new town of Henricopolis was already 
falling into decay at the time of his recall in 1616. 

According to the "Breife Declaration," "The supplies sent out of 
England while Sir Thomas Gates and Sir Thomas Dale governed were 
these: a small barque called the John and Francis, which brought few 
men and less victual ; the next a small ship called the Sarah, with the like 
number of men and victuall, the next a ship called the Tresorer, wherein 
Captain Samuel Argoll, bringinge with him to the number of fiftie good 
men, which ship and men were wholly imployed in Trade and other 
services for relevinge of the Collonye; the next ship, called the Elizabeth, 
and with about thirteen persons, for them little provision; the next the 
same Elizabeth came againe, with some small store of provisions only; in 
her Sir Thomas Gates went for Englande [April, 1614], leavinge the 
government with Sir Thomas Dale. * * * 

"At Michaelmas following arrived a small ship called the Susan her 
lading (being the first Magazin) consistinge of some necessarye pro- 
visions of clothing." 



xvi. Cavaliers and Pioneers 

George Yeardley succeeded to the deputy governorship and continued 
for a year "under whom the Colony lived in peace and best plentye that 
ever it was to that time." 

Yeardley was followed by Samuel Argall, who continued until April 
10, 1619. This period was marked by the planting of the settlements of 
Argalls Gift, Martin Brandon, Smith's (later Southampton) Hundred, 
Weyanoke, Flower de Hundred, Martins Hundred and Maycock Hundred. 

Lord De La Warr died at sea on June 7, 1618, when he was on his 
way to take over the control of the Colony from Argall, who had rendered 
himself obnoxious to the Virginia Company. Owing to this fatality 
Argall retained his office until the arrival of Yeardley from England. 
When he closed his administration the "Forts, Towns, and Plantations" 
in Virginia were "James Citty, Henrico, Charles City and Hundred, 
Shirley Hundred, Arrahattock, Martin Brandon and Kiccoughtan, all of 
which were but poorly housed and manned." 

Yeardley left England on January 19, 1619, but owing to "sore 
weather" did not reach his destination until April 19, 1619. With him he 
brought the Instructions of the London Company dated November 18, 
161 8 and, among other directions, their commission appointing "300 
Acres of Land to be sett out for the Governor so to ease the Company 
henceforward of all charge in mayntayning him: 1200 Acres of Land to 
be the Common Land of the Company vizt three thousand in each of the 
ifower old Burroughs- 1000-acres of Land for the university to be planted 
at Henrico; of which 100 for the Colledge for the conversion of Infidells; 
the next care was the placing tenants upon these lands." 

In London, on April 28, little more than a week after Yeardley had 
reached Virginia "at a Quarter Court for Virginia at Sir Thomas Smiths 
Howse in Philpott Lane" Sir Thomas Smythe, *Treasurer since the for- 
mation of the Company, resigned on the plea of his complete occupation 
by new official duties but in greater likelihood though the pressure of two 
parties in the Company combining to displace him. Over two other 
contestants Sir Edwin Sandys was elected by a large majority to succeed 
Smythe as Treasurer. Under the new control pronounced changes were 
made in the previous system; a colonist was now assigned a divident of 
land and conceded a share in the government.

Introduction xvii. 



Among the projects under the new order was one of November 3, 
1619 duly carried into effect, except in the matter of number: "Lastly 
he wished that a fit hundredth might be sent of woemen, Maides young 
and uncorrupt to make wives to the Inhabitants and by that meanes to 
make them more setled & lesse moveable * * * These women if they marry 
to the publique farmers, to be transported at the charge of the Company ; 
If otherwise, then those that take them to wife to pay the said Company 
their charges of transportation." 

Shortly after his arrival Governor Yeardley called a representative 
Assembly to convene at Jamestown, the first legislative body to meet on 
American soil. And this year 1619 is also memorable through the impor- 
tation, in a Dutch ship, of the first negroes into the Colony. 

Not all Sir George Yeardley' s acts met with approval by the Company 
in England. When Mr. Markham noted to the court a grant passed unto 
him by Sir George Yeardley provided with the seale of the Colony on con- 
dition that he compounded with Opachankano, and procured a confir- 
mation within two years from the Company, the Council emphatically 
affirmed that by the Kings Letters Patents, no other but the Company in 
London and that in the Quarter Court had the right to dispose of land 
in Virginia, and the Governor of Virginia had merely the power of a 
Ministerial officer "to sett out to every man his propper divident either 
by direction from hence, or to such as had acquired it there by purchase 
or service and therein cheifely to respect the auncient Adventurers and 
Planters, with authority also to passe the said Grants under the Collonies 
Seale, if they did desire it, but not to make an absolute Graunt." 

The Company also condemned "the very dishonorable compounding 
with Opechankano whereby a Sovereignty of that heathen Infidell was 
acknowledged, and the Companies Title thereby much infringed. It was 
also reputed a fraudulent deed unto the Grauntee, and of purpose onely to 
drawe a ffee from him, wch by report is very excessive, in that kinde, 
there beinge no lesse than 2011 waight of Tobacco or 311 in money 
demaunded by the Secretary there fore every such private divident of 50: 
or 100: acres passed under the Seale of the Colony * * *"* 

When Yeardley retired from the governorship on November 18, 1621, 
to become a member of the Council in Virginia, the population of the

Colony was estimated at 1,200 people, an increase of about 850 since the 
departure of Sir Thomas Dale. 

To the new governor and captain general, Sir Francis Wyatt, elected 
at a Court of the London Company on January 29, 1620/21, authori- 
zation was extended to govern "as fully and amply as any Governor and 
Council resident there at any time within the space of five years now last 
past might performe or execute." Sir Francis arrived in Virginia in 
October, 1621, and with him came his brother, the Rev. Haute Wyatt, 
William Clayborne with an appointment as surveyor-general of the 
Colony, Dr. John Pott, physician-general, and the Colony's new treasurer, 
George Sandys, who was to compose in Virginia portions of his noted 
translation of the "Metamorphoses" of Ovid. 

Sir Francis Wyatt's commission defined the powers of the Governor 
and Council, and permitted the people to choose Burgesses to represent 
them in a popular Assembly.* But at this time when reforms showed 
promise of fruitfulness occurred the most cruel blow that the Colony had 
as yet experienced. On March 22, 1621/2 the Indians, under the leader- 
ship of Opechancanough (Opechankano) , brother of Powhatan, massacred 
347 of the 1,240 white inhabitants of the Colony. Jamestown and the 
neighboring settlements were only saved by the timely warning of the 
Christian Indian Chanco. Yet even after this "deadly stroake given to 
the great amazement and mine of the state" emigration from England 
went on undeterred, in the spirit voiced by Mr. Truelove and his Asso- 
ciates on July 17, 1623: "no whitt discouraged with the late Massacre of 
the English by the treacherous Indians they were resolved to set forth for 
their Plantations." f 

And the stricken Colony was soon to have news of radical changes 
from over the water. Largely as an outcome of the incessant and violent 
attacks by the former Treasurer, Sir Thomas Smythe, allied with the Earl 
of Warwick, upon the administration of the London Company by Sir 
Edwin Sandys and the Earl of Southampton, the Charter of the Company 
was, at the instance of the King, abrogated by the Courts in June, 1624, 
and as a consequence the administration of the Colony and the disposal of 
its land came under the immediate control of the Crown. The extinction of 
the London Company gave little satisfaction to Governor Wyatt and other

men of prominence in Virginia, who expressed their remonstrance, over 
their signatures, in "The Tragicall Relacon," but without avail. However, 
Charles the First, who ascended the throne on March 27, 1625, issued 
his proclamation on May 13 after his accession, declaring that it was not 
his purpose to "take away or impeach the particular interest of any private 
planter or adventurer, nor to alter the same otherwise than should be 
necessary for the good of the public."* 

Sir Francis Wyatt continued to serve as governor until, at his own 
request, he was relieved of his office in May, 1626. Sir George Yeardley 
once more became governor and continued until his death, whereupon 
Capt. Francis West succeeded as deputy governor and held office until 
March 2, 1629, when Dr. John Pott, who had come to Virginia as physi- 
cian-general, was elected by the Council West's successor. The next gover- 
nor was the contentious Sir John Harvey, during whose tenure of office 
Kent Island and the shores of the York were first settled. After he 
had deposed Claiborne from his office as secretary of state on account of 
the latter's clash with Lord Baltimore Harvey was himself deposed from 
the governorship by the council, with the concurrence of the Assembly. 
And Capt. John West acted as deputy governor from April 28, 1635 
until January 19, 1637, when Harvey was restored by act of the King, who 
proceeded to take action against the Governor's deposers on the ground 
that they had proceeded as if by "an act of regal authority." 

Harvey, on his return to Jamestown, improved his capital by the 
addition of about twelve new houses and planned towards erecting a 
church and a statehouse of brick, but his administration was not of suffi- 
cient duration to carry all his plans into effect. In consequence of his 
persistent mischief-making and tyranny Harvey was removed by royal 
decree, and in August, 1639, Sir Francis Wyatt again became governor and 
continued in the office until the coming of Berkeley in 1642. 

Sir William Berkeley, commissioned by the King governor of Virginia 
on April 2, 1641, with the assurance that there would be no restoration of 
the charter (a measure agitated in Wyatt' s administration), reached the 
colony in February, 1642. About two months after the second Indian 
massacre, which occurred on April 18, 1644, Berkeley returned to England, 
leaving as deputy governor his secretary, the Councillor Richard Kemp. 

In the year of the execution of King Charles and the establishment of

the Commonwealth in England (1649) appeared the "Perfect Description 
of Virginia," with the following information: "There are about 15,000 
English in Virginia and of Negros brought thither three hundred good 
servants. About 29 sail a year trade with them and return home laden in 
March. Most of the Masters of Ships and Mariners also have plantations 
there and houses and servants * * * About a thousand English are seated 
on the Accomac Shore by Cape Charles where Captain Yeardley is now 
chief commander (now commonly called the county of Northampton) 
* * * There are twelve counties in Virginia and 20 churches." 

During the Civil War in Britain a considerable number of Royalists 
emigrated to Virginia, which held steadfast to the old regime until the 
arrival of the Parliamentary fleet. Then, without attempting resistance, 
Virginia agreed to an accommodation. Berkeley retired to his country estate 
"Greenspring," and on April 30, 1652 the Puritan Richard Bennett, of 
Nansimond County, who had been named by Parliament as one of the 
commissioners to effect the reduction of Virginia, succeeded to the 
governorship. 

Edward Digges, the second governor under the Commonwealth, 
administered the affairs of the Colony from March 31, 1655 until March 
13, 1658. Digges was followed by Samuel Mathews, of "Denbigh,' 
Warwick County. As a result of Governor Mathews' contention that the 
Council possessed the authority to dissolve the Assembly, both Governor 
and Council were deposed, but reinstated on their agreement to take an 
oath of recognition of the popular body. On the death of Mathews in 
January, 1660, before the expiration of his term of office, the General 
Assembly, sensing the trend of affairs in England, recalled in March Sir 
William Berkeley to his former office, and, on September 20, King Charles 
the Second was proclaimed in his Dominion of Virginia. 

In April, 1661/2, on the departure of Berkeley for England to protest 
against the Navigation Act, Francis Morryson became acting governor, 
and so continued until Berkeley's return in the autumn of 1662. 

Governmental Divisions 

At the time of the departure of Lord De La Warr from the Colony 
in 1610 only James Town and Point Comfort remained in the tenure of 
the settlers. Under Gates and Dale arose new Plantations and Hundreds 
(a word used in a looser sense than its employment in England as a county 



Introduction 



district containing a court). Parishes also appeared but, in this earlier 
period, without definite bounds — a region served by a minister whose 
commission was to convert the heathen as well as to minister to the settlers. 

A Commissioner of Plantation was designated as the governing official 
of each Plantation or Hundred. According to the historian Alexander 
Brown the four incorporations of James City, Charles City, Henricus and 
Kiccotan (later termed Elizabeth City) date from the administration of 
Samuel Argall. They were, at any rate, referred to as the "Old Burroughs" 
as early as 1619. 

In the Assembly of 1619, summoned by Sir George Yeardley, the units 
represented were: Argall's Gift, Flowerdieu Hundred, Henricus, James 
City, Kiccowtan (Elizabeth City), Lawnes Plantation, Martins Hundred, 
Smythes Hundred. Capt. Ward, representative of his plantation on the 
Eastern Shore, was at first refused recognition on the ground that he had 
planted without any authority or commission from the Treasurer of the 
London Company. 

The General Assembly of March 1623/4 provided "that a court should 
be held once a month in Henrico and in James City," and in February, 
1631/2 the Assembly "Ordered that a monthlie Court be held and kept 
for remote parts of the Collinie, upper parts, Warwick river, Warwick- 
squeake, Elizabeth City, Accomac, and at James City, four quarter Courts 
yearlie." 

Plantations, hundreds and parishes had continued to multiply, and in 
1634* it was decreed that they should be grouped into eight political 
divisions, termed shires (more commonly, counties), namely, James City, 
Henrico, Charles City, Elizabeth City, Warwick River, Warrisquyoake, 
Charles River, and Accomac — the first four evolved from the "Great 
Incorporations" of the same name. 

These eight shires and other counties created in the period covered by 
the present volume are presented in the table at the end of Introduction. 

Division of the Land 

On the establishment of the settlement in Virginia the London Com- 
pany determined that no land should be assigned either to Planters or 
Adventurers until seven years had elapsed, at the end of which time a 
division v/as to be made by Commissioners. 

•Hening'a "Statutes at Large," Vol. I, p. 22. 



xxii. Cavaliers and Pioneers 

Sir Edward Sandys, in the time of his Treasurership, observed that the 
Commodities of Virginia had three several sorts of owners; First, the 
Company; second, particular Hundreds and Plantations, belonging to 
private Adventurers in England, as Southampton Hundred, Martins 
Hundred, and the like; thirdly, Planters inhabiting and residing in Vir- 
ginia, which part he conceived to be far the largest and most considerable. 

Grants were of two sorts: one to such as were adventurers by money 
paid into the Treasury, for which they were allowed one hundred acres of 
land for every single share of 12 pounds 10 shillings, and the other, of 
planters, who were allotted two shares for every person transported. In 
the "Great Charter of Privileges Orders and Laws" of 1618 a division of 
lands was determined on. In each of the four Boroughs of James City 
Charles City, Henrico, and Kiccotan, common lands were to be set aside 
for the support of the magistrate, the church, and the proposed college. 
Adventurers and Planters who had already received their dividents could 
have land laid off to them according to their number of shares. 

And in the matter of grants, declaration was made at the General 
Quarter Court at London, Nov. 18, 1619, by the Treasurer, Councill and 
Company that "all graunts of land to be made with equal favour except 
the differency of rent." 

The "differency of rent" — tobacco, capons, merchantable Indian 
corn — is exemplified in the abstracts of patents in the present volume. A 
particularly pointed example occurs in the lease to Sergeant James 
Hutchinson, of James City County, Sept. 24, 1638, "in parcells of 50 acres 
for & during the terme of 21 yeares from Michaelmas next reserving to 
the Governor and the Assembly 12 blls of Indian come & further pro- 
viding that such lessee does plant and seate upon such land at Michaelmas 
[Sept. 29] next with five men well armed at the least." 

The exigency in the form of the rent was stressed in the fourth part 
of the Petition to the Assembly of 1619: "that a sub treasurer be ap- 
pointed here (in Virginia) to collect the rents of the London Company 
instead of requiring the impossibility of paying them in England, accord- 
ing to the letter of the charter to exact money that is (whereof we have 
none at all as we have no mint) but the value of the rent in com- 
modity * * *" 

"In the matter of tobacco the value is 3 shillings for the best and 
18 pence for that of second quality." 



Introduction xxiii, 



In regard to determining the bounds of dividents the arrival of 
William Clayborne, surveyor general, in the Colony did not put an end 
to uncertainties and disputes. 

Among the "Laws and Orders" of the General Assembly,* March 5, 
1623/4, appears: "That every privatt planters devident shall be surveyed 
and laid out in several and the bounds recorded by the survey ; If there be 
any pettie difference betwixt neighbours about their devidents to be 
devided by the surveyor if of much importance to be referred to the 
governor and counsell; the surveyor to have 10 lbs of tobacco upon every 
hundred acres." 

But disputes over bounds and encroachments went on, as the Patent 
Books and County records reveal, and it was not infrequently the case 
that an owner would re-patent land he had long held or had heired in 
order that, with his land bounds reviewed and registered, he might feel 
the more secure in his possession. f 

The Land Patents 

The early land patents in the volumes in the Land Office are not the 
original entries, but are transcriptions. Book I (in two volumes), tran- 
scribed in the year 1683, is the work of the Clerk Edward Harrison. 

With the beginning of the distribution of land by patent one copy of 
the document was filed in the records of the Company and another put 
in the possession of the patentee, who was to produce it as evidence in 
case of dispute as to ownership, to turn it over to the new owner in case 
of assignment by deed, and in the event of his death during possession 
the document passed to his heirs or assigns. 

On June 26, 1620, the Virginia Company, as an additional safeguard, 
determined "henceforeward a Duplicate of such Pattents as are graunted 
here should be sent to Virginia which Mr. Treasurer said should all be 
sealed in open Court, as all other things yett had been during his time." 

For the official preservation of patents in Virginia there seems to have 
been, besides the entry in folios, another mode of disposal — by loose 
leaves hung on a string. See memorandum on page 226. 

It will be observed that the patents transcribed are not presented in 
strictly chronological order, though the grouping by administrations of

governors is in general faithfully observed. The earliest extant patent, by 
Yeardley to Fairefax, dated February 20, 1619 [1619/20] is found 
on page 109, entered doubtless at the time the document first came to 
the attention of the transcribing Clerk. The first entries in Book I of 
the Land Grants are records of the Corporations of James City and of 
Elizabeth City, dating from 1623-24. The Indian Massacre, the burning 
of James Town by Bacon, or other fatalities may account for the disap- 
pearance of most of the earliest patents. Then, too, such records as had 
survived had suffered from the effect of time, and perhaps the chirography 
of the first quarter of the century offered certain difficulties to readers of 
a half century later. 

Beginning with the year 1624 it may be assumed that the great 
majority of land grants up to the period of the transcription have been 
preserved. But the record is certainly not complete — how far from com- 
plete there is now no means of determining. In the one surviving record 
book of Charles City County of the seventeenth century (1655-65) appear 
entries of land grants (with headrights and acreage but without indicated 
bounds) that escaped inclusion in the Land Books that cover that period. 

Headrights 

The term headrights in connection with a patent for land has been 
subject to no little misunderstanding. Elucidation is therefore in order. 

For the purpose of stimulating immigration and the settlement of the 
Colony the London Company ordained that any person who paid his own 
way to Virginia should be assigned 50 acres of land "for his owne 
personal adventure," and if he transported "at his owne cost" one or more 
persons he should, for each person whose passage he paid, be awarded 
fifty acres of land. There is, for instance, the case of Sir Thomas Lunsford, 
Knight and Baronett, who on October 24, 1650 was granted 3,423 acres 
for the transportation of sixty-five persons including himself, members of 
his family, friends, and servants, many of whom were doubtless inden- 
tured, or bound for a period of service. 

Among the headrights are found persons of all social classes, nobility 
and gentry, yeomanry, indentured servants (some of good family and 
connection in England), and negroes. Among the headrights of Bertram 
Hobert, October 10, 1642, (p. 135) appears the name of John 
Tredescant, the younger, one of the first to advertise the great natural

richness of America and to bring back to the mother country concrete 
evidence of the beauty and wealth of flora in the new lands beyond the 
sea. And again, in February 6, 1654, (page 303) Tredescant (Tredeskin) 
was a headright of William Lea, who, by paying the naturalist's passage, 
was entitled to 50 acres of land in Virginia. 

It is not to be assumed that the claim for land in consequence of a 
person transported was made immediately after the arrival of the "head- 
right" in the Colony. There is, for instance, record of a patentee awarded 
land for the transportation of three wives, who, it is safe to conclude, 
were successive. The headrights may have arrived in the Colony long 
before the patentee had entered claim for land thereby due. Nor is it to 
be assumed that the headright is necessarily an immigrant. Even men of 
prominence in the Colony, through a voyage or repeated voyages to 
England and return, appear as "headrights" of friends or relatives, who 
acquitted the cost of the passage in order to obtain the consequent land. 
On page 121 in the photographic reproduction of a patent, January 6, 
1639/40, of Capt. Nicholas Martian (Martiau), the French Walloon, 
who is the earliest American ancestor of George Washington, appear 
among the fourteen persons transported at his own cost and charges Capt. 
Martian himself, his wife, a son and a daughter. On the other hand in 
a patent of Councillor George Read (Reade), of November 2, 1658 (p. 
180) the headrights include Capt. Martiau (Martin), his wife, and his 
daughter Elizabeth, whom Col. Reade married. 

Sea captains were especially active in the acquisition of land through 
the transportation of settlers, and they not infrequently acted conjointly 
with London merchants. An instance in point is the case of William 
Barker, who, in association with Richard Quiney, citizen and grocer of 
London (brother of Shakespeare's son-in-law, Thomas Quiney) and John 
Sadler (brother-in-law of John Harvard, founder of Harvard College), 
patented great tracts at Brandon and at Merchant's Hope, held by them 
and their heirs for nearly a century. 

Before obtaining land for the transportation of "headrights" the 
claimant was required to present a receipt in proof that the passage money 
was duly paid. But despite all precautions fraud and deception were by 
no means uncommon. 

As a safeguard, particularly in the case of those persons who went 
at their own cost, the London Company, on November 18, 1623, came

to the following resolution "Touching the registering of Passengers names 
that goe to Virginia in private shipps * * * 

"Secondly when a reveiwe shalbe made in Virginia howe all men are 
possessed of their lands which wilbe most necessarie to be donn in reguard 
of the great Disorder and Lycentiousness which men there use in takinge 
out land and not due to them it wilbe a matter of great trouble to all 
private Planters that come not in the Companies Shipps to prove that 
they came over at their owne charges, and except they do, that it wilbe 
verie dangerous and unsafe to the Companie to make confirmacon of 
landes to them wch perhapps others have better right unto."* 

Ancient Planters 

According to the Charter of Orders from Sir Thomas Smythe (referred 
to as "the late Treasurer" in patents in this book), November 18, 1618 
the following provision was made: "* * * And forasmuch as our intent 
is to establish our equal Plantations whereof we shall speak afterwards be 
reduced into four cities or Boroughs namely the chief city called James 
Town, Charles City, Henrico, and the Borough of Kiccotan [later Eliza- 
beth City], And that in all those foresaid cities or Boroughs the ancient 
adventurers and Planters which were transported thither with Intent to 
Inhabit at their own costs and charges before the coming away of Sir 
Thomas Dale Knight, and have so continued during the space of three 
years, shall have upon a first Division to be by us augmented one hundred 
acres of land for their personal adventure and as much for every single 
share of twelve pounds ten shillings paid for such share allotted and set 
out to be held by them their Heirs and assignes forever. 

"And that for all such planters as were brought thither at the Com- 
pany's charge to Inhabit there before the coming away of the said Sir 
Thomas Dale after their time of service to the Company on the common 
Land agreed shall be expired there be set out one hundred acres of Land 
for each of their Heirs and assigns for ever paying for every fifty acres 
the yearly fee Rent of one shilling to the said Treasurer and company 
and their successors at one entire payment on the feast day of Saint 
Michaels the Archangel forever. And in regard that by the singular 
Industry and virtue of the said Sir Thomas Dale the former Difficulties 
and Dangers were in greatest part overcome to the great ease and security 

*Records of the Virginia Company," Vol. I, 373. 



Introduction xxvii. 



of such as have been since that time transported thither, we do therefore 
hereby ordain that all such persons as since the coming away of the said 
Sir Thomas Dale have at their own charges been transported thither to 
Inhabit and so continued as aforesaid there be allotted and set out at first 
Division fifty acres of Land to them and their Heirs forever from their 
Personal adventure paying a fee rent of one Shilling yearly in manner 
aforesaid and that all persons which since the going away of the said 
Sir Thomas Dale have been transported thither at the company's charges 
or which hereafter shall be so transported be placed as Tenants on the 
company's lands for the term of seven years to occupy the same to the half 
part of the profits as is above said." 

Those who had worked on the Company's land had had their dis- 
appointments: "A little before the departure of Sir Thomas Gates many 
of the Ancient planters (by the instigation of Sir Thomas Dale), upon 
promise of an absolute freedome after three yeares more to be expired 
(having most of them served the Colenye six or seven yeares in that 
general slavery) were yet contented to serve in the buildinge of Charles 
City and Hundred with very little allowance of clothinge and victuals." 
But Ancient Planters were to have immunities as well as rewards, as 
appears from the Laws & Orders of the General Assembly, March 5, 
1623/4: "That all the old planters that were here before or came in at 
the coming of Sir Thomas Gates they and their posterity shall be exempted 
from their personal service to the warr and any public charge (church 
duties excepted that belong particularly to their persons (not including 
their families) except such as shall be employed to command in chief." 
In compliance with the Charter of Orders Sir George Yeardley, in 
1619, made without doubt a number of grants to "Ancient Planters," of 
which only one is now extant — that to William Fairefax, (see page 109). 
A copy of a bill of adventure, dated July 15, 1608, in consideration of the 
payment of 12 lbs. 10 shillings, to Henry Dawkes is cited in connection 
with a patent to his son William Dawkes "of Verinas." (See page 15). 
The following list includes those who are known to have come to 
Virginia before the close of the year 1616, survived the massacre, appear 
in the Muster of 1624/5 as then living in Virginia, and to most of 
whom the term "Ancient Planter" may with justification be applied. 
Certain "Ancient Planters" — Samuel Jordan, for instance — had, at 
the time the Muster was taken, recently died. (See page 226) .
