Full text of "The Lower Norfolk county Virginia antiquary"

This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 
publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage guidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we have taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 

We also ask that you: 

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-commercial purposes. 

+ Refrain from automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attribution The Google "watermark" you see on each file is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liability can be quite severe. 

About Google Book Search 

Google's mission is to organize the world's information and to make it universally accessible and useful. Google Book Search helps readers 
discover the world's books while helping authors and publishers reach new audiences. You can search through the full text of this book on the web

addressed to free negroes and other coloured persons.

MY MOTHER. 
MYSELF. 

Thikd Evening. 
[See Vol. I, p. 109.] 
I was bom in Norfolk on the 20"» of June A. D. 1750. My 
first recollection is of the death of my little brother Cornelius, 
who must have died when I was four years old, and I remem- 
ber as well as if was yesterday, how I cried on the occasion. 
"O, hush my dear little Miss Nellie,'^ said the nurse rachel to 
me "and don't cry so, or you will make your self sick and die, 
and then Master and Mistress will have more trouble '^ Still, 
I cried and cried, and that very night according to my nurses 
word, I was taken with a nervous fever which was nigh carry- 
ing me off, but, at the end of forty days, I recollect, they put 
split pigeons to my feet (to draw the fever down, it was said,) 
and I grew better — and after a while, got well. When I grew 
a little older, I was put to school to a poor old dame by the 
name of Mrs Drudge, and, to be sure, she did drudge to teach

me my letters — spelling and reading after a fashion. Poor old 
woman, she thought me a nonsuch, and I thought her the 
greatest woman in the world. She taught me, good soul, to 
read the Bible and the stories in it pleased me greatly. I 
remember particularly, the story of good old Isaac and his 
sons — " And it came to pass when Isaac was old &c.," I could 
once say it all by heart. After I had learned out here, I was 
sent to a Mrs Johnson — a very large fat woman, who died one 
day in her fat, and perhaps, of it — for she was a monstrous 
woman, indeed. She taught me needle-work, and marking on 
the sampler. After this as I was shooting up, my father, who 
thought me a very fine smart girl (for, I was always his favorite,) 
wished to send me to a fashionable boarding school that there 
was then in Williamsburg, but my mother would not consent, 
saying, she could not part with me, for, she loved me dearly, 
too. Shortly afterwards, Donald Campbell, imported a school 
master ft'om Scotland, by the name of Buchan, who opened a 
select school, and I was sent to him to learn the higher branches 
of English, French or Spanish or any outlandish language, for 
in that day it was thought that one tongue was enough for a 
girl. Here, perhaps, I might have learned something, but I 
was in my teens, and too fond of talking and doing nothing to 
get my lessons, and my teacher used to humour me and spoil 
me. So, my education was very imperfect, and I have always 
r^etted that my opportunities for learning were so poor — 
though I must confess that I might have improved them better 
than I did. At the same time, my good mother taught me some 
useful things out of school. She was always for setting me to 
read the Bible, which I always loved better than any other 
book. She took me, too, to church along with her every Sun- 
day, and I got some good, I suppose, from the sermons I heard, 
though, I cannot say that I remember any of them, particularly 
except one. This was a sermon which I had the happiness to 
hear from the great Mr Whitefield,^ when I was about twelve or 
thirteen years old. He preached in Portsmouth and stood out, 
I remember, on the steps of a house not far from the Ferry 

' Born in Gloucester, England, December 16^, 1714, died in New- 
bury port, Massachusetts, September 30, 1770. He came to America in 
1738, 39, 44, 51, 54, 63 and 69,

Hampton Roads and pressed me to send him an answer, I let 
him go away without any. By the way, I might as well add 
here, at once, while I think of it, that when I was travelling 
in the stage many years afterwards in 1798, after I had married 
Dr Read,* on my way to Richmond, a gentleman passenger 

» John K Read was born in Philadelphia about the year 1746, married 
Mrs Maxwell in 1796, and died on the tenth of February 1805. He 
was an alderman from July 26^ 1796 to June 24, 1799, and from June 
24**» 1800 until he resigned June 28**» 1802, and was mayor from June 
24«>, 1799, to June 24"», 1800.

In the name of God amen I John K Read, Senior, do make and

authorize and empower my Executors herein after named or the Sur- 
vivor or Survivors of them, to make Sale of my lowest Warehouse,

can be obtained therefor, on six months credit, for negociable notes 
payable at Bank, and I request and direct them to apply the proceeds 

thereof to the payment of my Debts in aid of this fund and for 

the same purpose of paying all my just Debts I do farther authorize 
and request my Executors to make Sale of my Chariot and horses on 
the same terms. Item It is my wish that my Shop and the business 
thereof should continue to be carried on by Doct Mortimer during

Mortimer : and if those terms cannot be had, on the best that can be 
procured by them and the monies arising from the Sale of my Shop 
to be in like manner assetts in the hands of my Executors for the pay-

ma'am will you allow me to ask, were you not formerly Mrs 
Maxwell, the wife of Capt James Maxwell of Norfolk/' " Yes 
Sir," said I, "I was'' "Then ma'am," said he, I have to tell 
you that on leaving England some time ago, to come to this 

my Will and desire that the medicines and furniture of the Shop which 
may be on hand, be in like manner sold by my Executors, and the 
proceeds of such Sale to remain in their hands assetts for the payment 
of my debts : if any debts shall then remain unpaid, then subject to 
the future direction of this my last Will, or, in case I shall not deem 
it necessary to give any special direction on this hand, subject to dis- 
tribution according to the Laws of this State. Item I will and direct 
that my Executors shall proceed to collect all my outstanding debts, 
without delay, and the monies so by them collected to be also assetts 
in their hands for the payment of my Debts. Item I will and desire 
that it may be understood that the funds which I have before desig- 
nated for the payment of my Debts, are those which I prefer as being 
first liable for my Debts ; and I desire that no part of my Estate, real or 
personal, may be resorted to for the payment of my Debts, untill those 
which I have already designated should be exhausted. Item it is my 
Will and desire that my second warehouse now in the occupation of 
the Tuckers, shall be rented annually, or otherwise, in the discretion of 
my Executors or the Survivor or Survivors of them, for the best terms 
tlmt can be procured, during the natural life of my wife, and that the 
rents thereof be equally divided between my three children John K 
Read, Benjamin Franklin Read and Lucy F Jones, and on the death 
of my wife I leave the said warehouse, together with all the rights, 
privileges and profits thereunto belonging, unto my son Benjamin 
Franklin Read and his heirs forever, subject however to an annual 
payment of twenty five pounds to my daughter Lucy F Jones during 
her natural Life. Item I give to my beloved wife during her natural 
life, my uppermost warehouse, at present in the occupation of Mr 
Knox : remainder to my son John £ Bead and his Heirs forever sub- 
ject to an annual payment of twenty five pounds to my daughter XiUcy

wifes death. Item I give to my beloved wife during her natural Life 
the negroe boy Billy ; remainder to my son Benjamin Franklin Read 
and his heirs forever, and if at any time during her lif^e my wife should 
find it more convenient to sell the negroe boy Billy, I desire that she 
may do so provided she replaces him with another of equal value : 
which other, in that event, I give in like manner to my son Benjamin 
Franklin Read and his Heirs forever after the death of wife— Item 
I give to my Grandson Walter F Jones and his Heirs forever all my

country, I was particularly desired by an old friend of yours, 
Admiral Smith (for the young Lieutenant was now no less) to 
present his best regards to you, if I saw you and to tell you 
that he had kept his word, and was still a batchelor for your 
sake " There was romance for you. And, you will say, per- 

ever, my negroe woman Lucetta and her four children. Item it is my 
will and desire that my Executors in the course of one year after my 
death shall out of my Estate purchase of Henry Banks the Girl Kitty 
and her child : and which Girl with her child, and future offspring, I 
give to my Daughter Lucy F Jones during her natural life, and after 
her death, to my Grandson Walter F Jones and his Heirs forever, and 
in case the said Henry Banks shall refuse to part with the said Girl 
Kitty and her Child, or in case my daughter Lucy F Jones should 
prefer any other woman Slave of price not exceeding one hundred 
pounds, then I will and desire that my Executors instead of the said 
Girl Kitty and her Child shall purchase such other so preferred by my 
daughter, which other Slave with her offspring I give to my daughter 
Lucy during her natural life, remainder to my Grandson Walter F 
Jones and his Heirs forever. Item It is my Will and desire that my

iD the frigate Launceston, with a number of fine young officers 
under his command, and among the rest, Mr. Maxwell, who 
was the sailing master of the ship, a smart active man, a good 
seaman, and a great favorite with the captain and all who knew 
him. They all came often to our house, but Mr. M. oftener 
than any, and I soon suspected, and, indeed, saw plainly now, 
that he was after me. He was not handsome, at least not like 
Smith or B M , but he was a good looking man, sen- 
sible, agreeable, and full of chat. Indeed, he had so much to 
say about his voyages and travels — ^his adventures on the coast 
of Norway, at the siege of Quebec, General Wolfe and all the 
rest, that, he soon won my fathers heart and even made some 
impression on mine. At least, if I did not listen to his tales 
with as much interest as Desdemona did to those of Othello, I 
certainly was easily persuaded to admit that he would make a 
very agreeable companion for one. At length, my father said 

to me one day, " Well, Nelly, I suppose your friend B still 

wants you, but he is indolent and good for nothing, and I can- 
not favor his suit. Still, I do not say that you shall not have 
him, On the contrary, I say you may take him if you choose, 
and I will give you five hundred pounds for your portion, but 
that is all you must expect me to do for you. For, as you make 
your bed, you know, you must lie in it. But, here now, is Mr 
Maxwell, an honest sensible and industrious man, who your 
mother and I both think will make you an excellent husband, 
if you can £mcy him, and if you will take him, I will give you 
1000 to begin with, (for he is worth, at least, two of the other) 
and, I will, moreover, continue to do what I can for you both 
aflierwards, for I am sure, it will not be money thrown away. 
Keflect upon what I say, and decide for yourself. I reflected 
accordingly, and soon made up my mind to take Mr Maxwell 

with my parents favor, rather than poor B without, and 

all being arranged for it, we were married in 1767. I was not 
quite 17 years old at the time, and Mr. Maxwell was about 32, 
nearly twice my age, but at the same time he was so hearty and 
lively, that there was no real disparity between us. Indeed, I 
soon found that he was all I ought to wish in a husband. 
"The guide of my youth,'' the father of my children, and the 
friend of my heart till death. I may add here, that firom my own

experience in the case^ I cannot help thinking that if young girls 
would follow their parents advice instead of their own foolish 
fancies, in the choice of their partners for life, it would often, 
if not always, be much better for them. After our wedding, 
we went to a number of parties that were made for us by the 
officers, and the town people, for we were both favorites with 
all. At one of these, which was a dance, I saw my old beau, 
who came up to me, when I was sitting by myself for a moment, 
and said to me with a deep sigh, which I am sure he drew from 
the bottom of his heart: "And, so, you are married and to a 
stranger, too. What a risk you have run, though I must do 
him the justice to say that every body speaks well of him, and 
I sincerely hope, for your sake, that he will make you a good 

husband.^' " No doubt he will,'' said I, — "but for you B , 

what do you intend to do with yourself now '' " Oh, as to 
that,'' said he, " I shall neither hang nor drown myself, but to 
be even with you, shall marry some pretty girl or other, as soon 
as I can, that I think, will be the best way to spite you " " The 
best in the world" said I " and I am really glad to hear you 
make so sensible a speech. Gret you a wife, as soon as you can, 
and whoever she may be, I promise you, I shall sincerely wish 
you much joy with her." Just then, I was called up to take 
another dance, and giving ray hand to the young officer who 
took me out, I left my quondam friend to himself. He married 
not long afterwards a young lady in the country, and though 
we met no more in the road of life, I have always remembered 
his fond attachment to me with pleasure and can not help sus- 
pecting that I love his daughter, who afterwards married my 
nephew, a little better for her fathers sake.

Swiss Settlers. 37 



SWISS SETTLERS. 



We have for several Weeks past, been in Expectation of the 
Arrival of a Ship, with about 500 Protestant Switzers, who 
were coming to settle on the Southern Boundaries of this 
Colony, and who saiPd from England about the Beginning of 
August. By Vessels that have arrived here, we have had 
several Accounts of their being seen and spoken to, at Sea; 
and by one lately, who gave an Account, that they had lost the 
Gaptain^ Mate, and 50 or 60 Passengers, most of them children, 
who dy'd ; and that the rest were in great Distress for want of 
Provisions, occasioned by the Tediousness of their Voiage. 
From these circumstances of the poor People, who had sold 
their All, and left their Native Country, to come and settle in 
This, they were much pitied, by many here, on Account of their 
Miseries. At last, we have an Account of their Arrival ; with 
the following melanchoUy Circumstances, which we gather 
from Two Letters sent hither from Princess Anne County, and 
Hampton, and from some current Reports : That the said Ship 
arrived within the Capes of Chesapeak-Bay, on Wednesday the 
3d Instant, and came to Anchor in Lynnhaven-BsLV ; that the 
Wind blew very hard that Afternoon and Night, at North West, 
which tis supposM drove her from her Anchor, and she was 
the next Morning discover^ stranded on the Shore in the said 
Bay, with Water in her to her Upper Decks; and a great 
Number of the People, who were almost famish'd with Hunger, 
had the Misfortune to lose their Lives. These Letters do 
not particularly mention, in what Manner they lost their 
Lives, whether by attempting to get ashore, when the 
Ship stranded; or whether the whole Number said to 
be lost, were drowned in the Ship, by the Waters flow- 
ing in upon them, they being in a weak, sickly Condition, 
and perishing that way, being unable to help them- 
selves ; and especially as it was one of the coldest Nights we 
have felt this Winter. One of these Letters says. That Two 
Thirds of the People were destroyed by the Wet and Cold, and 
most of their Treasure lost : And the other. That 60 of them 
were drowned between Decks. From these, and the various 
Reports relating to them, we can collect, That out of about 300

Souls that enterM on board this Ship, there are not above 60 
alive ; and those in so low a Condition, that its much doubted, 
whether some of them will recover. Among this Number is a 
Daughter of Col. Brown's, (a Gentleman of Fortune, the Chief 
of this new Colony, who happened to take his Passage another 
Way, and arrivM here about a Month ago ;) this young Gentle- 
woman it seems was Speechless, and her Life in great Danger: 
Three other of his children who came in the Ship, are like to 
do well. This Gentleman was waiting at Hampton for their 
Arrival, and upon the News of their being at Anchor in Lynn- 
haven Bay, immediately procurM a Vessel and Provisions, and 
went to their Relief; but to bis unspeakable Grief, found them 
in this Distress. This Ship was reckoned one of the richest, 
that has come to this Colony for many Years ; and 'tis fear'd 
that much of her Treasure is lost. However, That is but a 
Trifle in Comparison to the Loss of so many Lives, and this 
Loss the Colony may sustain, by this Disasters discouraging 
some Thousands of the same Country People from Coming 
hither to settle our back Lands, (which are very rich, and 
capable of great Improvements) who it seems intended it; 
unless their Terror be in some Measure mitigated, by the kind, 
hospitable Treatment they met with in their Distresses. 

As soon as the Gentlemen and other Lihabitants of Prinoess 
AnnCy saw the deplorable Condition of the People, they immedi- 
ately took them to their Houses, gave them all the Comfort 
and Sustenance they cou'd ; and contributed as much as lay in 
their Power, to their Preservation. And our good Governor, 
upon receiving Advice of their Misfortune, forthwith sent 
Orders, That every thing shou'd be done for them, that was 
convenient and necessary for the Preservation of their Lives 
and Effects ; which must undoubted be very grateful to those 
poor Souls, who have been so many months at Sea, have 
suffered so much Hardship by Famine, and at last (coming 
within Sight of their desir'd Port,) but very narrowly escaped 
the Jaws of Death. (From the Virginia Gazette, Number 1 28, 
Williamsburg, January 12, 1738) Since our last we have the 
following Particulars relating to the SmtzerSy That when the 
Ship came within the Capes, the Wind was so fair, that if they 
had kept under Sail, instead of anchoring at Lynnhaven-Bay,

they might have been safe at Hampton in about 2 Hours ; but 
the People being almost famish'd, having nothing to eat for 
several Days, insisted on the Captains coming to Anchor there, 
and going ashore to get Provisions. Accordingly the Captain 
and some of the Passengers went ashore, but it being an Island, 
and no House upon it, they walkM about a long Time in vain ; 
meantime the Wind rose, and blew violently at Nor west, stove 
their Boat ashore, parted the Ship from one Anchor, and the 
other dragged, so that she was drove so near ashore, as to strike 
on the Ground, whereby her Bottom was so injur'd, that she 
filPd with Water in a very short Time, and between 40 and 
50 were drowned between Decks ; and had it not been for the 
Assistance of Two Ships that lay near them at Anchor, who 
put as many of the People ashore as they cou'd with Safety to 
themselves, they must most of them been drown'd : And after 
they were put ashore, receiving no Shelter, from the Inclemency 
of the Weather, about 70 of them were frozen to Death, some 
on the Beach, and others in the Marshes, as they were scattered 
about, in Search for Houses. Those who survivM, amounting 
to about 90, were taken Care of by the Gentlemen and other 
Inhabitants of that Neighbourhood, and they are all like to do 
well. Col. Broums Daughter is pretty well recovered, as are 
also his Three other Children. The Ship lies in a bad Con- 
dition at the same Place where she struck frill of Water, so 
that they have got but little out of her yet; however, proper 
Methods are taking to get their Money, which is said to be 
very considerable, and Groods, out of her ; and then they pur- 
pose to go to their intended Settlement (From the Virginia 
Gazette, Number 129, Williamsburg, January 19, 1738)

Upon the Information of Cap* W™ Carver ag* Jone the wife 

'Captain William Carver was made a justice for Lower Norfolk 
County, Virginia, October 15, 1663 ; was added to the Quorum Feb- 
ruary 15, 1665, and on the 25th of November, 1665, was suspended the 
commission by Sir William Berkeley, and on the 15th of October, 

1667, was again added to the commission. Was High Sheriff in 1670, 
and after the expiration of the term of his office, again took his seat 
on the bench, and was present for the last time June 18, 1672. He 
was a member of the House of Burgesses in 1665, and June 15, 1669, 
and April 16, 1672, was appointed to take the tythables for the Southern 
branch of the Elisabeth River, and August 18, 1669, was appointed 
General Surveyor of Highways for the Western and Southern branches 
of Elizabeth River, and August 16, 1671, General Surveyor of High- 
ways for the Southern branch precincts. On the 16th of April, 1664, 
he bought of Henry Groodricke " a ship called the Expedicon, of 40 
tons, for 20,000 pounds of tobacco," and on June 15, 1666, he, desig- 
nating himself William Carver, Mariner, and Elizabeth his wife, sold 
** to Edward Davis and Rachel his wife, their well-beloved cozens," 
300 acres of land, part of a patent for 500 acres granted him July 4, 
1664, ''in the Southern branch of Elizabeth River," and on May 8, 

1668, he, this time* calling himself William Carver, merchant, of the 
Southern branch of the Elizabeth River, gave John Low 50 acres of 
land ^' lying att the head of Church Creek." 

On the 25th of July, 1672, while laboring under an aberration of 
the mind, he killed Thomas Gilbert, who was sitting next to him at 
dinner, by stabbing him with a knife. In his examination, August 
15, 1672, he deposed " that as for his part hee knoweth nothing of It, 
noe more then the child that is now unbome, nor of any other action 
that day nor severall days beefore or after." Captain Carver sided 
with Bacon, during Bacon's Rebellion, and held an important position 
in his fleet. He was captured and put to death, and died with great 
courage. Gk>vemor Berkeley, in pursuance of his relentless policy 
wrote the following letter : 

Coll Mason Ma]'' Sayer and Cap^ Bray : My honored frends by This 
time I presume you have heard of the death of that Monstrous Bebell 
Bacon Soe that now there is noe pretence left to the Rebells his i

of May, 1681, sold to George Newton 784 acres of land called Brinaons 
Quarter, and on the 7th of December, the same year, sold Major 
Anthony Lawson for 11,500 pounds of tobacco in cask a tract of land 
on the east side of the bay of Elizabeth River, containing 800 acres, 
and called Lamberts Point In both of these deeds he mentioned 
himself as being the son and heir of Captain William Carver.

MY MOTHER. 

(Continued from page 33.) 

Upon my marriage with Mr. Maxwell,^ my father was even 
better than his word^ and made him a present of one half of a 
new vessel called the Two Sisters (after sister Polly and 
myself) and the house and lot next door to his own, in which 
he went to live. Soon afterwards, the ship being now ready 
for sea, Mr. M. anxious to have my company, and, perhaps 

'Was born in Northumberland, England, settled in Norfolk in 1767, 
was married the same year 

April 6t*» 1767 Ja» Maxwell with Helen Calvert

In the Name of God Amen I James Maxwell of the Borough of Nor- 
folk being weak in Body but of sound Mind, do make & ordain this

willing to shew me abroad (as he was very proud of our 
country) persuaded me to go with him in her to the islands of 
Barbadoes^ and though I was always a great coward by water, 
I consented to go. We set sail accordingly, and for a while I 
was highly amused in spite of my sea sickness, with the 
wonders and novelties of the great deep. For there, among 
other things, the fish came playing about our vessel, — the 
dolphins with their many colours more changeable than a lute 
string gown, and the sharks with their ravenous jaws. One of 

Children for ever. Item It is my desire that the Female Slaves given 
to my Wife for her Life shall at her death he valued, and then equally 
divided between my four Daughters. Item I do hereby charge the 
Lands devised to my sons and Daughters as aforesaid with the pay- 
ment of the annuity devised or bequeathed to my Wife. Item I devise

devised to my sons & Daughters, except that William, Sally <& Louisa's 
share shall not be Chargeable with any part of the Legacies devised to 
them respectively. Item I devise to my Wife Helen the use of my

these last, I remember^ bit at a hook which the sailors had 
thrown out to catch a dolphin, and carried it off with a bit of 
the line which he had cut in two with his teeth. Some days, 
afterwards they saw, as they were fishing again a shark play- 
ing about their lines, and apparently anxious but unable to 
swallow the bait. This surprised them not a little but deter- 
mined to have him, they got a harpoon at last, and struck it 
into him, and soon had him in upon the deck. Here the 
strange conduct of the fish was explained, for they found to 
their great surprise, that he was the very fellow that had 
carried off the dolphin hook some days before, and which had 
some how or other got &stened in his mouth and actually 
sewed up a corner of it, so that he could not swallow another 
hook. These were our sports during the calm ; but by and by, 
we had a heavy gale, at least I thought so, which made me 
very sick, and frightened me out of my wits into the bargain. 
All this, however, was soon forgot in the joy which I felt in 
being safely landed some days afler in Bridgetown, which I 
thought a very handsome place, and the country around it was 
beautiful to my eyes. And here, there was no end to the 
attentions I received from the kind inhabitants. For Mr. 
Maxwell was well known there, and my father had given him 

the Executrixes therein Named, who made Oath & together with 
Alexander Cowan and John 8 Calvert Her Securities Entered into and

letters to all his old friends ; so that I received all sorts of 
attention from them. I stayed; however, chiefly at Mr. Apple- 
white's, a rich merchant who had formerly lived in Isle of 
Wight County, and coming down to Norfolk, had married 
Molly Archer, but sorely against her father's will, for Mr. 
Applewhite was then a poor man. But he had taken his wife 
to Bridgetown, and having prospered in business, was now 
rich, and up in the world and highly respected. Molly, too, 
bad written a letter to her father at Norfolk, full of excuses 
and love, and, moreover, giving such a fine account of her 
present prosperity (accompanied by some presents of shaddocks 
and oranges <&c.) that the old man was highly delighted, and 
in his rapture, actually christened a new vessel which he 
launched about the time. The Mollys^ letter — to the great 
wonderment of all who were not in the secret of his joy. The 
couple were, of course, glad to see me, and I lived in their 
house as in my own house, for your father had taken sprikes 
to load, and left me in their care. I was, however, in great 
request and often invited out and about. Among the rest. 
Judge Pairchild. I remember, a very handsome gentleman, used 
to call everyday to take me out to shew me all that was worth 
seeing about the place. I was charmed with the scenery so 
different from any that I had ever seen before, the large cocoa- 
nut trees, so tall like one of our highest pines, with a bunch of 
limbs at the top, and the beautiful orange trees. I drank tea 
more than once in a whole grove of them. All the finest 
fruits were common about the streets as ours apples and peaches 
with us. The hucksters in the streets had their tables loaded 
with them. They had particularly I recollect, young cocoa-nuts 
which were all just a jelly of milk, the sweetest things in the 
world — and the ladies would stop and eat them as they went 
along the streets. So I was enchanted with all I saw, and 
almost thought myself in Paradise. To crown the whole, a 
company of gentlemen and ladies, had got up a play which 

' Edward Archer, Merchant, of the Boroagh of Norfolk made his 
will 13tt» Novemher 1771, and it was recorded in December the same 
year. To son Bdward *'one fourth part of" his "Brigantine called

they were going to act for the benefit of the poor. The parts 
were all cast, and the dresses made^ and Judge Pairchild had 
called to engage me to go with him, and I was full of girlish 
anticipation, — when lo! and behold! to spoil the sport, Mr. 
M. having loaded his vessel, came up and took me away from 
the fruits and flowers, and all the rest. They b^ged him, 
indeed, to put off his departure, at least, till after the play, 
but he had no notion of committing such a folly, and said his 
ship was loaded, and he could not stop a day for all the plays 
in the world. So, we left the charming island and all its 
pleasures, and returned to Norfolk again, when, you may be 
sure, I had enough to tell about all I had seen. By the way, 
however, I had been so sick and frightened again on the voyage 
back, that I told Mr. M. that I would never go another trip 
with him while I lived. "And, indeed, my dear,^^ said he 
laughing, after the specimen I have had of your seamanship, I 
promise you I shall never ask you to go along with me again. 
So we were agreed on this point. After this, we continued to 
live in Norfolk in a calm, domestic way, but very agreeably 
for some years. Mr. Maxwell indeed, still went to sea, to 
differiBnt places, owning several vessels in partnership with my 
father, and making money every voyage. After a while, too, 
my elder sister had got married to a Mr. Marsden,^ a Scotch-

MY MOTHER. 

(Continued from page 61.) 



In the meantime, when I had passed my twentieth year, I 
had my first child, a daughter which we called Sarah afber my 
husband's aunt in London. About a year afterwards, I had 
another, a son, whom we called Maximilian, afler my father. 
Then I had another daughter called Helen, after myself. So, 
we were going on^ as usual, and enjoying much domestic 
happiness when the Revolutionary War came on to disturb our 
quiet and drive us from our peaceful home. And now, Lord 
Dunmore, the last royal Grovemor of the State, having quar- 
relled with the Legislature at Williamsburg took to his ship, 
the Fowey man of war lying at York, and shortly afterwards, 
came down to this place with a small fleet, and anchored in the 
harbour of the town. Many of the officers visited at our 
house. Among the rest I remember particularly, Mr. Lane, 
sailing master of Lord Dunmore's ship, and a Mr. Calder, I 
believe, of one of the vessels under him. The former, espec- 
ially, was very intimate with us^ and when we expressed the 
fear that our Lord would bombard the town, said to us . . 
^^ There is no danger of it at present, but when it is decided on,

I shall know it of course, aad will give you a hint in time/' 
Accordinglj a few days afl^^he told us it was time for us to 
be moving, and we set abodt lending all our valuable articles 
of furniture &c. over to. Max' Herbert's at the point, where we 
took a room which he kindly let us have, and to which, we at 
least retreated ourselves to get out of the way of the balls, 
leaving a negro wom^n, old Sarah behind to take care of the 
house and lot, and look aft^r a sow and pigs which she was 
raising for herself with great care. Scarcely was this done, 
when we saw the ships all drawn up in a line before the town, 
from the upper wharf .to town point and heard the drums 
beating on board of them and presently afterwards they began 
to fire away on the to>vn^ about four O'clock in the aflernoon 
(Jan. 1st 1776). In the midst of the cannonade we saw a small 
boat rowed by a single man, with another person in it, put off 
from the Norfolk side, and make for the Point where we were 
looking on, and could not imagine what could be in it. The 
enemy soon saw her, too, and concluding, no doubt, that 
she carried the Mayor, or some other personage of equal conse- 
quence, who was trying to make his escape, they despatched a 
barge well manned after her, and soon took her and carried her 
to one of the ships. And who were the fugitives ? Old Sarah 
and her sow and pigs. For it seems, being alarmed by the 
great guns, and trembling for the safety of her darlings, whom 
she loved as if they had been her own children, she abandoned 
the care of the property, and was trying to save her bacon in 
this way. Now, when the British Captain saw what a mistake 
he had made, and learned moreover, that she belonged to Mr. 
Maxwell he ordered the man in the barge to take the prise 
over to him at the Point. Here Mr. and Mrs. Herbert, and 
his sons, seeing the boat coming, and apprehending an attack 
on the house, armed themselves with their guns and went 
down to the landing to keep the barge off. This was enough 
for me. I instantly caught up my daughter Helen in my 
arms, and taking little Max by the hand, I set off to make my 
escape with them to another Mr. Herbert's who lived some 
miles off, and where, I thought, I should be more safe. By 
this time night was coming on, and the roar of the cannon was 
more and more dreadful in my ears. When I got to the great

gate^ I met a n^ro man named Jack belonging to the family, 
coming home. "Oh, mistress," said he, "where are you going ? 
Indeed Jack, said I, I can hardly tell you, but I believe I am 
going to Mr. . . . Herbert's Though I do not know a step of 
the way. Why, mistress, said he, Mr. . . . Herbert lives at 
least 8 miles offy and I am sure you can never get there this 
night. But there is a Mrs. Herbert who lives about two 
miles from here, up the river, and if you will wait a little till 
I can just go to the house and carry my bag, I will show you 
the way there, for you will never find it without. Agreed said 
I, and presently Jack was gone and come, and taking up 
Nelly in his arms we set off to trudge our way through the 
wood and marsh, to Mrs. Herbert's. We had not proceeded 
far, however, when we were met by my mother in a chaise, 
with my brother Jonathan driving her. She knew my voice 
and cried out, Oh, Nelly, is that you ? So I told her what had 
happened and where I was going. Just then who should come 
up to us but Mrs. Herbert herself, who was flying from her 
house in the greatest alarm, saying that she had heard that the 
British were going to set fire that night to all the houses along 
the river, and she was flying to her brother's for safety. Of 
course we were now at a great loss to know what to do, but 
just then Mr. M. came up having succeeded in making peace 
with the barge men and the Herberts, and immediately set out 
after me. He assured Mrs. Herbert that the British would 
have enough to do that night with the town, and persuaded 
her to go back to her house, put down beds on the floor, and 
take us all in till next morning, when he would come up and 
carry me off to Kempsville. Accordingly, the next morning, 
he came with a fine barge, which he had borrowed from one of 
the ships and took me bag and baggage up the Branch to 
Kempsville. I took up my lodging in a room in Billy White's 
house, one of the largest and best in the village, where my 
sister Marsden was staying, or came soon after, I forget which, 
and where, I made sure that I would be safe.

1. To the Editor of ihe Nation : 

Sir : If we are to believe the school histories of the day, if 
we are to believe Bancroft and Fiske, the British under Lord 
Dunmore early in the Revolutionary War, burned the city of 
Norfolk to the ground; and yet, as a matter of fact, the 
destruction of that prosperous town was accomplished by the 
Continental forces themselves, and partly by the direct orders 
of the Convention of the State of Virginia. Bancroft, in his 
eighth volume, describes in his most graphic manner the 
destruction of the city, and concludes by saying that the 
American commanders, Howe and Woodford, certainly made 
every effort to arrest the flames, and argues that troops without 
tents would hardly in midwinter have burned down the houses 
that were their only shelter. He goes on to say that " When 
Washington learned the fate of the rich emporium of his own 
' Country,' for so he called Virginia, his breast heaved with 
waves of anger and grief: ' I hope,' said he, ' this and the 
threatened devastation of other places will unite the whole 
Country in one indissoluble band against a nation which seems 
lost to every sense of virtue.' " Fiske treats of the incident 
briefly, and in no wise mentions the fact that the Continentals 
had any part or portion in the destruction of the town, but 
assumes that the whole conflagration was the result of the 
British bombardment. Though it does not seem to be gene- 
rally known, the whole question of the destruction of Norfolk 
was investigated in the year 1777 by Commissioners appointed 
by the General Assembly. Their report was made October 10, 
1777, and I suppose is still on file in the Auditor's Depart- 
ment. At any rate, it was a matter of discussion in the House 
of Delegates in 1835-36, and was published with the proceed- 
ings of that year. This report is accompanied by a schedule of 
all the property destroyed — ^time when, by whom, and value — 
and also by the depositions establishing the facts. It establishes 
that out of 1,333 houses burned, only 54 were destroyed by 
Lord Dunmore, and that on January 1, when the historians 
state that he burned the whole town, he burned only 19 houses 
— 32 having been burned by him November 30, 1775, and 
three January 21, 1776. It establishes that 863 houses were 
burned by the troops of the State before January 15, 1776, and

that 416 houses were destroyed by order of the Convention in 
February. It goes on to say : " Upon an inspection of the 
schedule and the depositions which have been taken, it will 
appear that very few of the houses were destroyed by the 
enemy, either from their cannonade or by the parties they 
landed on the wharves ; indeed, the efforts of these latter were 
so feeble that we are induced to believe most of the houses 
which they did set fire to might have been saved had a dispo- 
sition of that kind prevailed among the soldiery, but they 
appear to have had no such intentions, on the contrary, 
they wantonly set fire to the greater part of the houses within 
the town, where the enemy never attempted to approach, 
and where it would have been impossible for them to have 
penetrated." I find this corroborated by an extract from 
the Virginia OazetUy published on board the ship DunmorCy 
lying off Norfolk, dated Jan. 15, 1776, which is to be found in 
American Archives, 4th series (Vol. IV, page 542): "As the 
wind was moderate, and from the shore, it was judged with 
Certainty that the destruction would end with that part of the 
town next the water, which the Kings ships meant only should 
be fired : but the Rebels cruelly & unnecessarily Completed 
the destruction of the whole town by setting fire to the houses 
in the streets back, which were before safe from the flames." 
The only explanation that I have seen of the action of the 
State troops in this matter is worthy of Sir Boyle Roche. It 
was that they had burned the whole town in order that they 
might be better able to defend the remainder. 

Yours truly, Wm. Henry Sargeant,

associated. Of these immigrants Mr. Palfrey, in his ''History of

' In the first half of the fifteenth centary very few of the laity, even 
of the best families, coald read or write, and for some handreds of 
years very few members of the Order of Malta, thoagh they were all 
of noble birth, could write their names, and even in the reign of Edward 
the Sixth, some of the members of Parliament could not read. Late 
in the fourteenth century, we are informed on good authority, no 
Scotch baron conld write his name, and James Stewart, Sheriff of Bat

notar. " '* In 1564, Robert Scott of Thulstane, ancestor of Lord Napier, 
could not sign his name, " and three years later the marriage contract 
of Walter Scott of Harden was signed by a notary, because none of 
the parties were able to write their names. From 1551 to 1571, John 
Shakespeare, the poet's father, held several public positions under the 
town government of Stratford, and he, as did most of the members of 
the corporation, made his mark, and only seven persons of ninety, 
who signed some orders for Brighton in 1580, wrote their names, and 
less than one-half of the subscribers to a loyal petition from Bridge- 
water, in 1680, were able to write their names, and the English country 
gentleman of 1685 was barely able to write his name. In 1827 fifty- 
eight per cent of the young men intended for the French military 
service could neither read nor write, and in 1841-45 more than thirty- 
two per cent of the men in England and Wales who were married 
during that time, signed the marriage registers with marks, and in 1866, 
in Italy, fifty-nine per cent of the men who were married that year 
made their marks. Fourteen of thirty-five of the early settlers of 
Exeter, New Hampshire, July 4th, 1639, made their marks. In the 
compact made by the original settlers of Providence, Rhode Island, 
four of the thirteen signers made their marks. Nearly all of the early 
residents of Gravesend, New York, made their marks, ** very few of 
the English settlers being able to write. '* " Many of the early gentry 
of Maryland could not write their names, " and one, if not more, of 
the earliest judges of the provincial court made his mark. The early 
Swedish settlers of Pennsylvania were very ignorant, and but few of 
them could write their names, and two members of the Ck>lonial Coun- 
cil of Pennsylvania for 1681 made their marks. Miles Morgan a select- 
man of Springfield, Massachusetts, during the latter part of the seven- 
teenth century made his mark. Five of the twenty-three members of 
Captain Lawrence's company, Groton, Massachusetts, 1758, made their 
marks. The founders of several influential families in Southeast Yir- 
ginia were unable to write their names, and one of them was a church- 
warden. 

> Judith Shakespeare, the poet's youngest daughter, could not write 
her name, and '' in the early part of the eighteenth century many 
of the ladies of the highest rank in Scotland could not write, and some 
of them could not even read. " In New England, from 1680-1713, the

NORFOLK THEATRES OF THE OLDEN TIME.* 

A writer in the Norfolk Heraldy June 19, 1839, on the occa- 
sion of the laying of the comer stone of the Avon Theatre that 
stood where the police station now is, says : An octogenarian 
friend gives the reminiscences of the theatricals of the bor- 
ough in his juvenile days. The theatre was quite well patron- 
ized before the Revolution. The theatre building then was a 
wooden structure that had originally been built for a pottery. 
It stood in the rear of a lot on the south side of Main street, 
somewhere about King's lane, on the river margin. There 
was no regular theatre until 1793, when a large wooden ware- 
house on Calvert's lane, in the rear of Hotel Norfolk now 
stands, was used. In 1795 a large new brick theatre was built 
on the east side of Fenchurch street, between Main and Ber- 
muda streets, and was used as such until 1833, when it was 
sold to Dr. John French for the Methodist Protestant Church. 
It was burned some time about 1846 or later. It was in this 
latter theatre Booth made his appearance after his arrival in 
Norfolk from Madeira in 1825. Thomas B. Rowland. 

* The marriage bonds show that the return was made in 1804. 

* Appeared in the Norfolk Landmark for Sunday, July 31, 1898.

thus declared themselves on the King's side, wore a badge of 
red cloth on their breasts, and the price of the article rose in 
the stores. Some wore a Banning patch as large as your band 
but others were content with a smaller piece. Never, I suppose 
since wars began, was there a victory more complete or won 
with so little loss of blood. Seeing the town thus taken and 
alarmed again for our safety, my sister Marsden and myself, 
went over in the afternoon to Charles Sawyers,^ who lived a little 
out of Ke;apsville, to stay with his family as he had kindly 
invited us to do. We had hardly got there however, when an 
ugly looking negro man, dressed up in a full suit of 'British 
regimentals, and armed with a gun, came in upon us, and 
asked with a saucy tone — Have you got any dirty shirts 
here? (this is the name by which our soldiers were known) I 
want your dirty shirts. No said I, we have no dirty shirts 
here. But you have, said he, and I will find them. He went 
up stairs to look for them, as he said, but no doubt to see what 
he could steal. Presently he came in again, aud said, I am 
going away now, but I shall be back again by and by. So 
saying he went off. You see now, said I, to my sister, this 
is no place of safety for us, and, I think we had better go 
back to the town before that horrid wretch returns, as he has 
threatened to do. I then went to my trunk and took out a 
purse of gold, and filled my pockets with dollars, and we set off. 
It was now dark, and as we entered the town, we found 1;he 
houses all lighted up, and Mrs. Logans particularly appeared 
almost illuminated. Knowing that I had a friend at Ck>urt in 
her, the thought struck me that I would go over, at once, to 
her house to see Lord Dunmore, and complain to him, of the 
insult I had just received. Mrs. Logan received me with great 
kindness, and introduced me to Lord Dunmore, who was sitting 
at his ease, and apparently highly pleased with his days work. 
So I told him my tale. Why, madam, said he, this is a 
provoking piece of insolence indeed, but there is no keeping 
these black rascals within bounds. It was but the other day that 
one of them undertook to personate Capt. Squires, and actually 
extorted a sum of money from a lady in his name. But we

much expect such things whilst this horrid rebellion lasts. 
Yet he had excited the negroes himself. (See the history.) 
But, pray madam^ continued he, where is your husband all this 
time? Indeed, my Lord, said I, I cannot tell you where he 
is. For he left me this morning, and I do not know where he 
has gone. But you will see him soon ? said he. I cannot say 
when I shall see him. Well, madam, when you do, you must 
be sure and tell him for me, that this is no time for a man like 
him to be out of the way. His Majesty wants his service, and 
I will give him any place he will name, if he will come in and 
join us. But join us he must. Shortly afterwards I rose to 
go home, when his Lordship followed me to the door, and 
offering me his arm, insisted on seeing me safe to my lodgings. 
I tried to decline the honor, especially, as I thought there was 
some risk, saying, O ! dont trouble yourself, my Lord, It is 
but a step — and, besides, I am afraid there is danger by the 
way, as some of our men may be lurking about and watching 
for a chance to shoot you, — though the truth is, I was only 
afraid that they might miss their mark and shoot me. Oh ! as 
to that. Madam, never fear — my sentries are all about, and I 
cant be caught napping. So I took his arm, and he escorted 
me very politely to Billy Whites door, where he bade me good 
night, but not till he had charged me again to be sure and tell 
Mr. Maxwell that he was very anxious to see him. When 
I entered the house, I found it filled with refugees, some of 
whom knew me and was disposed to be very polite. They 
had a rousing fire below, and were very merry. My sister, 
however, had a room up stairs, and I another opposite to 
it, and we both went up and retired to our chambers. Soon, 
afterwards, a servant girl came in to say that there was some 
one at the bottom of the garden, wanting to see me, and, she 
added, he says you must come to him directly. And, who is 
it ? said I. Why he told me not tell any one said she, but, 
he says he is your husband. So, I followed the girl, and there 
I found Mr. Maxwell. I told him, of course, all the occur- 
rences of the day. Well, said he, I see that I must still keep 
out of the way, for I am determined not to join Lord Dunmore 
in any event. Well, said I, but at least, you can be safe here 
to night, and yon can come in privately and spend it with me,

and tomorrow you may be off again. Well, said he, I believe 
I will take your advice. So we went in together, and shortly 
afterwards retired to rest. Not long afterwards, however, I 
saw by the light of the moon shining into the room, two tall 
grenadiers, armed cap-apee, come in and make directly for the 
bed where he lay. In an instant Mr. Maxwell was up, and 
demanded. What do you want ? Hush ! said one of the men. 
Hush or you are a dead man. Still Mr. Maxwell persisted 
What do you want, I say ? Leave the room this instant, or, 
your oflScers are below, and I will call them up. At this 
the fellow made a pass at him with his bayonet, which went 
through his shirt and even grazed his breast, and, turning 
then, they made for the door, and ran down stairs, and Mr. 
Maxwell after them. At this, I rose also, for I thought they 
had gone into my sister's room, and drawing on my gown, 
followed the chase, making but one step from the top to the 
bottom of the stairs. Here, I found my sister and several of 
the refugees with lights crying, whats the matter? and 
Mr. M. pointing to a hoisted window and saying I saw 
the rascals go out of that window. But, I know them, 
and will have them punished for this outrage in the morn- 
ing. So, we all returned to our apartments again. The next 
morning Mr. M. left me again, and I saw no more of 
him for several days. At last, I saw him come in the 
house, with a bit of red cloth on the breast of his coat. Oh ! 
said I, is it come to this ? Believe me, I would rather have 
seen you dead than to have seen you with this red badge. 
Phast I said he, do you think it has changed my mind ? Don't 
you see how Dunmore is carrying all before him, and, if I can 
save my property by this step, ought I not in common pru- 
dence to wear it, for your sake and the children ? But I tell 
you again you may be perfectly sure that I shall never join the 
enemy. Shortly afterwards, he told me that Billy White and 
Charles Sawyer were going to take their families out into 
North Carolina, and, if you choose, said he, I will join them 
and take you out too. Oh, well said I, any where so you take 
me where I cannot hear those great guns. So, he went and 
hired lodgings for me in the house of one Squire Evrigan in 
Pasquotank county in N. C. and, some time aft;erwards, I

removed there. In the mean time, Lord Dunmore, elated by 
his easy victory over the Norfolk and Pungo militia, deter- 
mined to attack our troops at the Great Bridge,^ where we had 
about a thousand men who had been sent down under the 
command of Col. Woodford, and who were strongly posted 
behind a breastwork which they had thrown up at the further 
end of the long causeway which led into the village from the 
Norfolk side. It was, indeed, a foolhardy undertaking, but, 
he thought that his grenadiers were invincible. So, he ordered 
Capt. Fordyce to lead them on to the attack. Capt. F. saw at 
once the folly and rashness of the order, but was too brave a 
man and too good a soldier to flinch from any duty. He was 
very intimate with Mr. Maxwell and had been at our house in 
Norfolk. He was not handsome, but very genteel, and I 
remember seeing him one day turn over Mr. M's Music, of 
which he was very fond, and humming some of the tunes. It 
was said that he gave his watch to his friend, with a message 
for his wife, for he knew, as he said, that he was going to his 
death. It was reported, too, that Col. Woodford, to deceive 
the British, had sent a negro boy into their camp, who told 
them that our men were out of amunition, had no powder, and 
had been obliged to melt up their shoe buckles for shot. This 
story, perhaps, duped Lord Dunmore and made him more 
confident of success. At length the morning came when the 
gallant Fordyce led on his men to the assault, but our people 
opened a deadly fire upon them with their rifles and shot them 
down like sheep. Fordyce himself was killed among the first, 
having received no less than 17 or 18 balls in different parts of 
his body. The first was in his knee, but he tied a handker- 
chief round it, and marched on cheering his men. There was 
a song made upon it: Come my brave boys, the day is our 

' Mrs. Maxwell was deceived by her memory, the battle of Eempes- 
ville was fonghtonthe 16th of November, 1775, that of Great Bridge on 
the 9tb of December, the same year. Her family must have left Nor- 
folk daring the first half of November to escape the expected burning 
of the town. Mr. Wm. Henry Sargeant in his communication to the 
Nation of February 4th, 1897, and repnblished in the Lower Norfolk 
County Virginian Antiquary, No. 2, part 3, pp. 82 and 83, as an annota-

own. But I forget it now. There were a number killed and 
many wounded, whom they brought back to Norfolk in wagons 
and carts. I remember I had gone down that day to see my 
mother at Mr. Herberts, where she was still staying, and 
towards evening we saw them coming with the poor creatures 
in them, crying water, water, — and, I and the young women, 
moved with pity went out and carried them pitchers of water, 
which they drank with a rabid thirst which it seemed impos- 
sible to satisfy. Shortly afterwards, my husband came in and 
took me out, to my lodgings which he had taken for me in 
Pasquotank. Here I had Polly. Here we were quiet, and I 
liked our situation so well, that Mr. M. had thought of buying 
a farm there and settling us down on it, when he received a 
letter from Gen. Washington, I think, or some one — inviting 
him to come and take charge of the Navy Yard which it was 
proposed to establish, and he determined, at once, to accept the 
invitation and join the standard of the country, which, I was 
both proud and pleased to have him do. We then came down 
and went to stay for a short time at the house on the farm on 
Tanners Creek, which belonged to my father. Thence, we 
went up to the Ship Yard on the Chickahominy river.
