The 

Collection of the matter 

Contained within this volume 

was suggested by 

a desire to 

Know something of my 

IRlnepeople, 

and 

Having learned so much 

that seems to be worth preserving 

it is now published 

In loving memory of 

My Mother, 

JuOitb JBtowne Claiborne 'Mealc, 

who was well known 

and beloved by 

Many 

whose names are recorded herein. 



INTRODUCTION. 

•' He who careth not whence be caine. caretli little whither he Roeth." 

NO apology is needed for a work like this. It is only intended 
for those who are directly interested in its contents. There 
can, assuredly, be no harm in setting down a list of one's 
family connections, if only as a matter of curious, if not useful, 
information, and it really does not concern the general public at all. 
If any of those whose acts are recorded here deprecate the linking 
of their names with others of less renown perhaps, it should be 
remembered that we are, after all, merely one great family, inter- 
minably interwoven, and all springing originally from a common stock. 
No pretense of illustrious ancestry is affected, nor thought of superi- 
ority entertained, because of the certain knowledge that descent 
can be traced back several generations. Experience abundantly 
teaches that such evidence is uncertain, if not useless, as many 
celebrated characters in the world's history rest on no such foun- 
dation. 

' ' Honor and shame from no condition rise. 
Act well your part ; there all the honor lies. " 

The information recorded here was collected with much labor 

and infinite pains by Thomas Henry Edwards, of West Point, 

Virginia, and Peyton Neale Clarke, of Louisville, Kentucky, with 

jthe assistance and co-operation of numerous correspondents, and 

personal visit to the old homesteads by Mr. C. A. Morrison, to 

nom we are indebted for the photographic views.

KING WILLIAM COUNTY. 



This county was organized in 1701, its territory being taken from 
King and Queen, which in turn had been formed from a part of 
New Kent in 1691. New Kent was a part of the original Shire 
of lYork until 1654, the latter being one of the first divisions of 
the Colony set apart in 1634. In 1720 Spotsylvania County was 
formed from parts of King William, King and Queen, and Essex, 
and! in 1727 ICing William was again called on to surrender some 
of its territory when the new county of Caroline was organized. 
A liistory of King William would consequently be inseparable from 
that of all of these counties. 

The wide rivers, wooded hills, and broad savannas comprised 
within its limits attracted the attention of the early settlers, many 
of jwhom had sufficient influence to obtain extensive grants of land, 
and located their homes on the banks of the Pamunkey, York, 
and Mattapony rivers. 

The Indians lingered here until the beginning of the eighteenth 
ccr tury, . and some friendly ones long after. Indeed, there is a 
s- i;ill remnant of the ancient Pamunkey Tribe still residing at 

ian Town, near Sweet Hall, on a reservation set apart for their 
by the Colonial Government. Since this was written the 

owing account of the Pamunkeys appeared in the Baltimore 
Arrrrican, which is, however, mainly taken from a report of the 
Smithsonian Institute by John Garland Pollard, of Richmond: 

' • They are the undoubted offspring of the old Powhatans still 
dw-Uing upon a part of their old hunting-grounds, and representing 
all that is left of the once powerful native confederacy that gave 
tl i early Virginia colonists so much trouble until expelled from 
J; 1 estown region in the year 1644. Their progenitors possessed 
tL' Aland when Captain Newport, in 1607, founded Jamestown, the 
fir i permanent English settlement in North America. 

{' ' Consequently the present Pamunkeys are the veritable ' blue 
blc ids ' among all the Indians surviving to-day, and they form the 
lar^jest remnant of the old Algonquin stock now to be found on 
the Atlantic coast. Only a few trilling offshoots and some few 
imc^rtain and feeble strains of blood remain of the other Powhatan

tribes. The Pamunkeys alone have withstood intact the enci^oach- 
ments of civilization for nearly three hundred years. And their 
preservation is all the more noteworthy from the fact that they live 
by themselves in their peculiar way in such close vicinity to the 
busy marts and ' effete civilization ' of the East. Although their 
manners are modified, their language lost, and their prestige van- 
ished, they still illustrate in themselves the law of the survival of 
the fittest. The bare fact of their existence is unknown evea in 
many parts of Virginia, and almost wholly unknown elsewhere. 

' ' The Pamunkey tribe live in a queer settlement called ' Indiian 
Town, ' situated about a mile east of the historic ' White House, ' 
where George Washington wedded the beautiful Widow Curtis. 
Their reservation, comprising eight hundred acres, ceded to the tiibe 
by the ancient colonial assembly of Virginia, is an odd-shaped n^ick 
of land, almost entirely surrounded by one of the serpentine cui'es 
of the Pamunkey River, tributary to the York River, and not far 
from the junction of the two. It is on the line of the York Ri ver 
Division of the Richmond & Danville Railroad. The place is c jn- 
nected with the mainland by a single narrow sandspit, and the 
isolation and protection afforded by this peculiar situation doubt;ie-:s 
saved these Indians from destruction. About one third of the 
reservation is good farming land, and the remainder consists of 
woods and low swamps, well stocked vidth deer, raccoon, ot er, 
muskrats, mink, reed birds, wild geese, ducks and turkeys. 

' ' There are only ninety Pamunkeys actually present on the 
reservation proper, and thirty-five more residing on another small - 
reservation twelve miles northward on the Mattapony River, besides 
twenty others employed during the summer as boatmen on steamers 
plying the Virginia rivers, making a total of one hundred and fo'-'t}'- 
five Pamunkeys now living. In appearance they are distingu.*- hed 
by the usual copper-colored skin, straight, coarse hair and c.ark 
eyes. They are not particularly strong or robust and their aveiage 
longevity is less than that of their white and colored neighbors." 

This report also explains the origin of the curious name of 
"Pipingtree Ferry." At a council between the whites and Indians 
the pipe was passed around on the ratification of the treaty, fiter 
which it was deposited in a hollow tree near by. Ever after^ ard 
when the whites disregarded their agreement they were remir'ded 
by the Indians of the " Pipe-in-tree. " i 

Many of the titles to land in King William are held by ! de- 
scendants of the original grantees, and the ownership has >ecn 
confined to their own families. 



KING WILLIAM COUNTY. 



The county is noted for the prominence of its old famiHes in 
the history of the colony, and has furnished a noble line of men 
and women, who, after carving out a glorious inheritance, failed not 
lO provide the material to perpetuate it. 

Beginning with the first hand-to-hand conflicts with savage foes, 
on through the French and Indian wars, then the struggle for 
independence, the War of i8i2, the Mexican War, and the last 
great internecine strife, the scars of which are not yet obliterated, 
old King William's sons have been ever in the van, and her patriotic 
blood has flowed wherever and whenever the call of duty has been 
sounded. 

Distinguished not alone for valor, her people have been fore- 
most in promoting the welfare of the Commonwealth and the 
advancement of civilization. Legislative halls have echoed to the 
elcpquence of her statesmen, and every honorable path in life has 
re.'feounded to their tread. 

Many have contributed to the history of the State. Not a few 
haVe gained national renown, while the deeds of some will live as 
lorig as time lasts. 

Not only does King William boast a notable posterity for her 
families, but the claims of ancestry are as well sustained. There 
are the Wests, who go back to the reign of Edward the Second, 
and of the same line as Lord Delaware. The Wallers trace their 
anciestry to the time of the Norman Conquest, and some say to 
Chj—^ magne; the Taliaferros certainly as far, and the Claibornes, 
Pej ^6, Fontaines, and others are quite as ancient. Then there 
are ^'"^^^ descendants of the Cavaliers, and particularly the connections 
of '■'^^] old English landed gentry, the bulwarks of Albion, whose 
bW Is purer than most of the so-called nobility, and who sent 
out '^"^ir bravest and best scions to people the New World. We 
can ""^ omit the grand old Huguenots who ' ' left fortune and fame 
for c iscience sake," and helpeH'To'swell the population and enrich 
the endowment of the land of freedom and light. The list is elo- 
quei'^, and includes such names as Claiborne , Bland, Roane, Robin- 
son, Johnson, Slaughter, Edwards, Thornton, Powell, Gregory, 
Robins, Aylett, Walker, Neale, Hill, King, Ellett, Lipscomb, Pem- 
bert( 7i. Corr, Dabney, Moore, Beverley, Butts, Littlepage, Dan-

dridge, Pollard, Quarles, Meredith, Lewis, Braxton, Ruffin, Peyton, 
Browne, Vaiden, Defarges, Croxton, Bosher, Langborne, Fo>:, 
Fontaine, Freeman and many others. 

King William County was one of the homes of Powhatan, 
and the reputed scene of the rescue of Captain John Smith by 
Pocahontas was not far distant. Bacon and his followers per- 
formed some of their exploits here, the remnant of his band sur- 
rendering at West Point, and Benedict Arnold and CornwalLs 
committed depredations before the final surrender of the latter at 
Yorktown, in the adjoining county. 

There was an old cannon, partly buried in the ground at Lanas- 
ville, said to have been left there by Cornwallis. It was dug tip 
and cleaned, and on the arrival of the news of the Secession \^( 
Virginia, in 1861, was fired amid much enthusiasm and demonstra- 
tions of patriotism. In the four succeeding years the county was 
overrun by both armies, vast amounts of property destroyed, ahd. 
many of her citizens found patriots' graves. 

This county lay in the path between the Northern Neck and 
Williamsburg, and George Washington, as well as other dis-.^ 
tinguished men, frequented the homes and enjoyed the hospitalpty 
of her citizens. Carter Braxton, one of the signers of the Decla- 
ration of Independence, lived here, and the kin of Patrick Heniy, 
John Randolph, Lee, Custis, and others, peopled her shores. J 

The material used in many of the old King William houses is 
represented to have been imported. While brick-makinr -Tvas 
early inaugurated in the colony, it is quite certain that a.' eat 
many brick were brought over and used in foundations, chii|ve :ys, 
etc. , where the extent of the work probably did not justif Js. ' leir 
manufacture. The exportation of tobacco and other comrri ides 
necessitated the employment of many vessels. It is highly ■ ^ba- 
ble that they brought over building m.aterial among other su. lies. 
At " Waterville, " the home of Henry Corr, near "Sweet Hall; vMr. 
John B. Carrington of Louisville, Kentucky, noticed the remaiy.; of 
an old house, the bricks of which bear date of 1600, and which T'ere 
unquestionably imported. There was a kind of glazed brick |of a 
peculiar color, differing from bricks made of the native clays wjich 
were frequently used, and it is probable that all the brick oSjfhjs 



KING WILLIAM COUNTY. 



class were made in England or Holland and brought over to the 
Colony. Harper's Illustrated History of the War records that, 
between October, 1863, and March, 1864, there were at no time 
more than seven thousand troops in and about Richmond, while 
there were fully ten thousand Union prisoners in the city. Plans 
were made by the Federals to make a sudden dash on the city and 
liberate the prisoners. Kilpatrick was sent with four thousand 
cavalry to effect an entrance on the north, while Ulric Dahlgreen 
was to attack the city from the south. Kilpatrick very nearly 
succeeded, but was repulsed almost in the city limits, mainly by 
the department clerks and a few regulars. Dahlgreen was said to 
have been misled by his guide, whom he promptly hung, and 
wandering around aimlessly reached King William County, where 
his willful and sanguinary mistreatment of defenseless women and 
children and destruction of private property caused so much indig- 
nation that the younger men, who had formed themselves into a 
home guard, attacked his command, killed the leader, and captured 
most of his followers. It is said that orders found on Dahlgreen's body 
directed him minutely as to his actions should his expedition suc- 
ceed. 

The Confederate President and his cabinet were to be assas- 
sinated, the Union prisoners liberated, and the city given over to 
rapine and pillage. The indignation was so great that his body, 
which had been decently interred, was taken up and secretly buried, 
and all trace of the vandal obliterated. 

McClellan landed a large force at West Point in the "Penin- 
sular Campaign," and established a base of supplies at the White 
House, the old seat of the Lees just across the Pamunkey River 
in New Kent County, which subsequently fell into the hands of the 
Confederates. The White House was built on the site of the old 
Parke Custis house, the home of Martha, the wife of Washington, 
and when it was abandoned on the approach of McClellan's army, 
it is said that Mrs. General. Lee left a note in one of the rooms 
asking that the place be protected from desecration on account 
of its associations. It was, however, destroyed by the Union 
troops when they were forced to abandon their stores, and the 
"associations" were forgotten.

KING WILLIAM COUNTY. 



Some of the old officers in King William County, taken from the 
Board of Trade Reports, in the year 1 702 were as follows : 

Burgesses, John West and Nath. West ; Sheriff, John Waller ; 
Justices, Henry Fox, John Waller, John West, Henry Madison, 
William Clayborne , Richard Gossidge, ' Martin Palmer, Daniel 
Miles, Roger Mallory, Thomas Corr, William Hay, George Dabney, 
and Thomas Terry ; Escheater, Math. Page ; County Clerk, William 
Aylett; Surveyor, Harry Beverley. 

Parishes: St. John's, Minister, John Monroe; Christ Church, 
Minister, Andrew Jackson. 

Trustees, Founders and Governors appointed by the Charter: 
Thomas Milner, Christopher Robinson, Charles Scarborough. Gov- 
ernors elected: Arthur Allen and Thomas Barber. 

It is not possible, in a mere sketch like this, to do justice to the 
importance of this little strip of land or to record its important part 
in the history of the nation, and it is left to some future historian to 
fill in the spaces and follow the merely suggestive ideas here set 
down. 



OLD HOMES. 



King William contains many relics of colonial days, but none so 
interesting as the old homesteads of the Claibornes, Braxtons, Dand- 
ri'!s,'es, Edwards', Ayletts, Langbornes, Pollards, etc., which all have 
tb-ir peculiar features and traditions. In these old mansions a 
for-mer generation lived in lordly manner, and entertained with lavish 
hospitality. 

Many of the old buildings have decayed and disappeared, others 
^, ■ mere ruins, while a few have been preserved with zealous care, 
'. . their hearthstones still respond to the touch of old-fashioned 
cDritorns. 

Time was when King William's homes resounded with mirth and 
pleasure, and her noble sons and stately daughters spent their time 
in routs and balls, and the old rafters of the ancient buildings echoed 
to the music and graceful steps of the minuet. The visitings and 
gomgs about, the big dinners and parties, fish-fries and frolics occu- 
pied their time to the exclusion of most other matters, and it is no 
wonder the old churches fell into decay. The parson, however, was 
liut entirely disregarded. His services were in demand for weddings, 
christenings, and burials, all of which functions were made the occa- 
sion of much ceremony and feasting. A certain gentleman from 
N( irth. Carolina having wooed and won a charming young lady of King 
W'-llicim, who figures in this record, came on to claim his bride, and 
many! times have I heard the account of his arrival with his great 
yellov^ coach and six splendid black horses, with grooms and footmen 
in !ive;ry, and half a dozen friends as outriders; his elegant apparel 
ard courtly manners, the magnificent jewels and presents for the 
biiueamaids and attendants. How a whole month was consumed in 
•' one/ continual round of pleasure" ere they bade farewell and 
started on the return to his Carolina home. 

A most interesting stor)- has been published of the "Barons of 
the Potomac and Rappahannock." The " Barons of the Pamunkey 
'ui^ Mattapony" would be fully as entertaining. 

In King William the cream of the English Cavaliers first made 
their homes. The Claibornes, Wests, and Dandridges, Boilings,

Blands, and Wallers, Cloptons, Brownes, Hills, Pe)Atons, Neales, 
and many others directly descended from or connected witli the 
great families of England, might set up their claims of distinguished 
descent with any. 

Some of the Old Homes are referred to herein, but manj .lave 
disappeared not only from view, but memory itself fails to conjure 
up their images. 

ACQUINTON CHURCH. 

There were four old churches in King William County |n the 
early part of the eighteenth century : one was known as ' ' West 
Point" Church, another generally known as "Cat Tail" Church, 
"Mangohick" in the extreme upper end of the county, and \c- 
quinton, " not far from the Court House. 

Bishop Meade, in his "Old Virginia Parishes," refers to Acqj.iinton 
Church in the following language : " It is a large old chui"ch in 
the form of a cross, having the aisles paved with flagstones.' 
was probably misinformed as to the shape of the buildin: 
description, however, agreeing with one of the other old chlii-ciic> 
in the county. Acquinton Church was built in 1732, of imixuteu 
glazed brick, and was rectangular in shape, with the old-fasljuonen 
pulpit in the form of an inverted bottle just inside the i aiain 
entrance. The old high-back pews therefore faced both (pulpit 
and door, rendering it unnecessary for any one to look arou'nd ti ■ 
see who was coming into church. 

It was abandoned by the Episcopalians about one hupidred 
years ago, and subsequently used by various denominations,! untu 
of late it appears to have fallen exclusively into the hanjds if 
the Methodists, who have repaired it and put on a new rocf 
(the old pointed one having fallen in), removed the old pew^;, ani 
added a modern pulpit. It was at this church that the celebr?.ti:d 
"Parson" Skyren, about the last of the old line of Epiacopl 
ministers, preached his eloquent sermons, and so anxious 1 wer? 
the people to hear him that "they brought seats with them "■ i 
filled the aisles " whenever he officiated. 1 

Butler Edwards and Elizabeth Ellett were married here, as ai5<,i 
their daughter, Judith, who married James Hill Neale. Parson

OLD HOMES. 



Skyren was the personal friend of the last mentioned couple, and 
their daughter, Lucy Skyren, was named for the loved pastor and 
his wife, Lucy Moore, daughter of Bernard Moore, of Chelsea. 

"The Good Parson" moved to Hampton, Virginia, where he 
died and is buried, and Acquinton Church was allowed to go to 
ruin. The walls are the same as erected in 1732, and are prob- 
ably safe to stand another century or two. 



ASPEN GROVE. 

An old homestead of the Littlepages, and the former residence 
of Hardin Littlepage, who was one of the Justices in King William 
County in 1799, afterwards the residence of his son. Colonel 
Hardin Littlepage, the father of Cornelia Todd Littlepage, who 
married Robert Christopher Hill, the present occupant. The house 
is over one hundred years old, and is a very roomj' and com- 
fortable structure. 

AUBURN. 

This was the old home of Wilson Coleman Pemberton, and 
built by him over one hundred years ago. It is a very substantial 
structure, with massive timbers, and built in the plain style of 
the period. 

In the front yard is a stone pedestal, which once supported a 
marble basin, the old baptismal font of Acquinton Church, sent 
over from England when the church was built in 1732. When 
the old Episcopal churches in Virginia were practically abandoned 
in the latter part of the last century this relic found its way to 
the Pemberton place, and it is stated that old Wilson Pemberton 
and his sons irreverently washed their toil-stained hands in the 
basin for many years when returning from their labor in the field. 
The basin has long since disappeared, but the pedestal remains to 
show to what base uses we may come. 



OLD HOMES. 



BROADNECK. 

The old home of the Page and Croxton families. The present 
house was built about one hundred years ago by James Croxton, 
whose tombstone is in the family graveyard. The inscription reads : 

In Memory of 

James Croxton. Died July 7, 1837, 

In the 54th year of his age. 

Honoured and loved in life, lamented in death. 



BROOKLYN. 

Present home of John Duval Edwards, but formerly the prop- 
erty of Jeremiah Hooper, who lived here over one hundred years 
ago. He was engaged in the wagon-making and blacksmithing 
business, among other things, as is evidenced by his claim proven 
against the estate of the first Ambrose Edwards, for whom he 
worked. He was an intelligent man, and much respected by his 
neighbors. 

CHERRY GROVE. 

Near the center of King William County, not far from the Court- 
House, on a slight eminence, stands the original homestead of the 
Edwards family. The old mansion is built after the early colonial 
style, and is almost exactly similar to the home of the Washingtons 
at Bridges Creek. 

It was built by Ambrose Edwards, the immigrant, about the 
middle of the eighteenth century, on a tract of land comprising 
about four thousand acres, "granted him by the King" of England, 
and was called "Cherry Grove," from a fine group of cherr}' trees 
which formerly grew around the old house. 

The place has changed but little. The bricks in the foundation 
and great old chimneys were brought over from England, and the 
timbers and laths were hewn from logs. The nails were fashioned 



c 

2 n 




OLD HOMES. 



by the smith, and the whole structure was put together in a most 
substantial manner. 

The furniture, some of which is as old as the house, is in keeping 
with its ancient surroundings. There is an old desk and book-case 
where Ambrose Edwards kept his papers, and a marble-top buffet, 
doubtless greatly admired and valued by its early possessor. 

The property has been handed down from father to son, and is 
now occupied by the fifth generation of Edwards', all of whom were 
reared and nurtured beneath its wide-spreading eaves. Ambrose 
Edwards, the first, lived and died here in iSiO. His son Ambrose 
occupied it until his death in 1826. Then George Edwards, his 
grandson, lived here until he was summoned to his last account in 
1867, when his great-grandson, William Edwards, inherited and 
reared his large family, who still find it a comfortable dwelling-place. 

Near the old home is the last resting-place of many of the older 
members of the family, among them the first Ambrose Edwards and 
his wife, Wealthean Butler, and while no 

" Storied urn or animated bust" 

marks their graves, the spot should be a hallowed one for their hun- 
dreds of descendants now scattered all over the land. 

This graveyard is an object of peculiar superstition in the neigh- 
borhood, particularly because of the remarkably fatal consequences 
of keeping it cleared of undergrowth. It is stated as a fact that no 
less than seven darkies have suddenly expired after working in the 
enclosure. It is now no longer possible to get one of them to 
approach it, and the mulberry shoots are fast becoming trees. 



CLOVER PLAIN. 

This old mansion was built by Thomas Edwards, about 1790, 
and left by him to his son, Warner Edwards, who dispensed here 
for many years a royal hospitality, and was noted for his enter- 
tainments. He was a large slave-owner and an extensive farmer. 

Two of his sons were in the Confederate Army, Lieutenant 
Kleber and Captain Thomas, the latter being killed at Drewry's Bluff. 



OLD HOMES. 



COOL SPRING. 

The homestead of Colonel Edmund Littlepage. The old house 
has been remodeled of late years, and is now occupied by Suth- 
erland G. Littlepage, who married Lavinia Corr. 

Here are buried Colonel Edmund Littlepage and his wife, 
besides various other members of the Littlepage family. There 
are two tombstones here which have excited considerable interest. 
One monument recites that, ' ' Here lies the body of Captain Henry 
Weber, who departed this life on the 14th day of April, 1735, 
in the sixty-third year of his age." There is no evidence of 
other parties of this name in King William County, and it would 
be curious to know something about the Captain, and what took 
him to this out-of-the-way place. The other monument is erected 
to the memory of Elder William D. Hunter, who was born in 
Louisa County, May 26, 1806, and died at the home of Mr. Warner 
Edwards, in King William County, July 6, 1854. Mrs. Sarah A. 
Wingo, the daughter of Wilson Coleman Pemberton, is also buried 
here. 

ELSING GREEN. 

This place was originally owned by Colonel William Dandridge, 
who married Unity West, and was probably named for the village 
and parish of Elsing in Norfolk, England, from which place Colonel 
Dandridge came. 

The Dandridges, Claibornes, and Brownes intermarried, and 
Elsing Green was for a long time the home of William Burnett 
Browne, the son of the Honorable William Browne, of Beverly, 
Massachusetts, who married Mary, daughter of William Burnett 
(son of the famous Gilbert Burnett, Bishop of Salisbury), who was 
Provincial Governor of New York and of Massachusetts; born 1643, 
and died 1729. William Burnett Browne was a descendant of Sir 
Thomas Browne, who was Treasurer of the Household to Henry VI, 
whose son. Sir Anthony, was Standard Bearer to Henry VII, and 
whose son. Sir Anthony, was created Viscount Montacute. 



OLD HOMES. 



William Burnett Browne married Judith Carter, and left the 
property to his grandson, William Burnett Claiborne, on condition 
that the latter should assume his name, which was carried out by 
act of legislature. 

The old house contained many valuable articles, among them a 
room hung \vith Gobelin tapestry, and a copy of Holbein's picture 
of the Viscount Montacute, presented to Bishop Burnett by William 
of Orange. There were also many other valuable paintings, and every 
fireplace in the house was originally provided wah a back plate of 
brass representing some celebrated episode in history. There is 
only one of the plates left, the death of General Wolfe, with the 
inscription ' ' In memory of James Wolfe, slain at Quebec, January 
1st, 1779." 

The house has been destroyed by fire twice, but the walls were 
so substantially built that they were but little damaged, and are 
practically unchanged. 

Carter Bra-xton, one of the signers of the Declaration of Inde- 
pendence, lived here for some time. He rebuilt the house in 1758, 
as is shown by an inscription above the door on the west side, 
containing the mitials " C. B. 1758." On the opposite side is 
another inscription, " G. B", probably for George Braxton, father 
of Carter Bra.\ton. There is another and more recent inscription 
of " R. Gregory, 1842." The house is an extensive one, built in 
the form of the letter "H," with wide halls extending from north 
to south and east to west, and very high ceilings. During the late 
war it was occupied by Federal soldiers, who at one time quartered 
their horses in the stone-paved halls, and the property was other- 
wise very badly treated. The present owner is Judge Roger 
Gregory, of the Faculty of Richmond College, and a lawyer of 
distinction. The property has been in the Gregory family over 
one hundred years. 

In a grove of stately trees, a few hundred yards from the house, 
is the family burying-ground containing many monuments, of which

Cheerfulness, the result of innocence, always sparkled in her 

face, and by the sweetness of her temper she gained universal 

good will. Her husband enjoyed in her a dutiful wife ; her 

children an indulgent mother ; her servants a gentle mistress, 

and her acquaintances a faithful friend. 

Rest here oppressed by pale disease no more, 
Here find that calm thou sought so oft before. 
Rest undisturbed beneath this humble shrine, 
Angels awake thee with a voice like thine.

OLD HOMES. 



ENFIELD. 

The original home of the Waller family in King William County. 
The house is situated on the bank of the Mattapony River, and 
the land is part of the original grant to John Waller by King 
Charles II. The patent is still in e.xistence. The house is more 
than one hundred and fifty years old, and has been occupied by 
a long line of Wallers. 

It was from this place that Benjamin Waller, who married a 
Miss Travis, started to Alabama in 1820 in wagons. They were 
two months on the road, and settled at Gainesville. They were 
the parents of William, John, Judith Page, and Logan Waller. 
Mary Waller, of this family, married Thomas Edwards about 1780, 
and another daughter married William Burke. 

FAIRFIELD. 

Part of the original grant to the Ayletts by King Charles II. 
The old burial place of the Ayletts is here, and the following 
inscriptions are taken from the tombstones : 

' ' Here lies interred the body of Martha Aylett, wife of Philip 

Aylett, and daughter of the Hon. Wm. Dandridge and Unity 

(West) Dandridge, who died the 25th April, 1747, in the 26th year 

of her age and left behind two daughters and two sons. Viz : Unity, 

William, Ann, and John Aylett. " 

"Alexander Spotswood Moore, born 1763, married 19th July, 
1787, Elizabeth, born 1769, daughter of Col. Wm. Aylett of Fair- 
field, King Wm. County (and his wife, Mary Macon) son of Philip 
Aylett and his wife Martha Dandridge, an Aunt of Mrs. Geo. 
Washington of Mt. Vernon, and a daughter of Capt. Wm. Dand- 
ridge Royal Navy and his wife Unity, daughter of Thomas West, 
a descendant of Lord Delaware of Royal Lineage." 

" Gen'l Philip Aylett of Montville, born 1787, died Sept. loth, 
1848. This stone is erected by his bereaved widow and children." 

"Here lies the body of Patrick Henr}' Aylett, son of Philip

seven months." 

' ' Here lies the body of Wm. Aylett, son of PhiHp Aylett, 
who died at Montville on the nth of February, 1829, age 22 years 
and one month." 

' ' Here lies the body of Philip Aylett, son of Col. Wm. Aylett, 
who died at Montville nth September, 1835, in the 65th year of 
his age." 

' ' In memory of Judith Page, wife of Gen. Philip Aylett, died 
at Selma, Ala., May 7th, i860, aged 56 years." 



FOREST VILLA. 

This is a part of the original grant to Ambrose Edwards, who 
built the old house for his son Thomas, when he married Mary 
Waller. 

At the death of Thomas Edwards the property was left to his 
son Butler, who was born here in 1800, and at his death Butler 
Edwards willed the place to Kleber Edwards, the present owner and 
occupant. Butler Edwards married a daughter of Colonel Carver 
King, but had no children. His estate was a large one, and he 
devoted his time principally to fox hunting and outdoor pleasures. 
He carried on a large distilling plant, and his old Virginia ' ' Peach 
and Honey" was a celebrated beverage. 

The house has been added to in recent years, but the older part 
remains as an example of the architecture of one hundred years ago. 

FRASCATI. 

This fine old building, while not directly concerned in the history 
of King William County, is included because of its type of a later 
class of colonial structures, and because it is now occupied by the 
family of William Henry Lyne, descendants of some old King Will- 
iam families, and particularly as an acknowledgment to Miss Cassie 
Moncure Lyne, whose intelligent interest in the subject has enabled 
the writer to secure a great deal of valuable information for this 

volume.

OLD HOMES. 



It is located in Orange County, Virginia, and was built by Judge 
Philip Pendleton Barbour, of the Supreme Court of the United 
States, in 1825. One of the interesting features of the place was a 
large flower garden surrounded by a serpentine brick wall covered 
with English ivy, a form of enclosure rarely found in this country, 
but frequently seen in Europe, where ornamentation is added to 
utility. This grand old mansion is one of the best examples of 
colonial architecture in the State. Its interior arrangement and 
decorations are no less striking than its massive exterior. 

The location is superb — on an elevation at the foot of the Blue 
Ridge — and from its wide portico may be seen the mountains of 
Albemarle, and, on a clear day, Montpelier, the home of President 
Madison, is visible. 

KING WILLIAM COURT HOUSE. 

Among the colonial buildings in Virginia few possess the interest 
of this old structure, which was built in the early part of the eight- 
eenth century, of imported material, and in a fashion now altogether 
out of date. The building stands in a space enclosed by a solid 
brick wall, and is surrounded by trees as old as itself. 

Many of the most prominent lawyers in the early history of the 
Colony fought their legal battles here, and great questions involv- 
ing the rights and privileges of the early settlers were decided 
within its walls. Its old records were mostly destroyed and stolen 
during the late war, and a fire subsequently consumed nearly all 
that remained. While other counties possess more imposing judi- 
ciary structures, it is doubtful if any could produce its equal in 
historical reminiscence. 

LANGBORNE. 

For many years the home of John Pemberton, who built the 
present house, a substantial brick structure, in 1845, on the site of 
the old Langborne mansion. John Pemberton was doubly con- 
nected with the Edwards family, and was a man of great force of 
character and ability. His son John was killed in the Civil War, 
dying at Richmond from wounds received in the attack on Fred-

ericksburg. His remains lie in the family burying-ground at Lang- 
bome, where rest also members of that once noted family. The 
tombstones which mark their graves here on the bank of the 
Pamunkey River are a connecting link between the past and present 
and make the spot celebrated.

Son of 

Robert and Mary Langborne 

of Fetter Lane, London 

Born the 2ist of October 1723 

Died the igth of March 1766. 

Also the tomb of Colonel William Langborne, son of above, 
"A hero and patriot of the Revolution." Died 18 14, and his wife 
Elizabeth died 1802. 

The first William Langborne married Susanna Smith, of ' ' Shoot- 
ers Hill," daughter of Augustine Smith and Sarah Carver. 

The second William Langborne married Elizabeth Claiborne, 
and had an only son, William, who died at the age of twenty-two 
years, when the name became extinct in Virginia, but the blood 
still flows in the descendants of Mary Langborne, daughter of the 
first William, who married Warner Throckmorton, from whom are 
descended General William Booth Taliaferro, Major Thomas S. 
Taliaferro, Judge Beverly R. Welford, junior, Judge Warner T. 
Jones, and many others. 

MONTVILLE. 

A beautiful place near the village of Ayletts, which comprises a part 
of the original grant from Charles II to Captain John Aylett, 
whose grandson, Philip Aylett, married Martha Dandridge, aunt of 
Mrs. Geti^ral George Washington. The present house was built in 
1803 by William Aylett. 

George Washington was entertained in the old homestead which 
preceded the present house on the memorable trip on which he met

OLD HOMES. 



the Widow Custis, v/hom he afterwards married, and who Hved a few 
miles distant on the Pamunkey River. 

There was formerly an extensive distillery on the place for the 
manufacture of peach and apple brandy. Numerous relics are pre- 
served here, among them two old colonial measures of brass which 
the English Government furnished the various Colonies, and known 
as " Standard Winchester Measures." They are inscribed respect- 
ively "King William J^ peck" and " King William bushel." The 
latter weighs between eighty and ninety pounds, and has been twice 
stolen from its present owner, first by the captain of a schooner, 
who induced a negro to steal it, and carried it to Norfolk, selling it 
for ten dollars. Colonel Aylett traced and ultimately recovered 
it, and both the negro and the captain were punished at the whip- 
ping post before the abolition of that institution in Virginia. It 
was stolen a second time and traced to Richmond, and again 
recovered. 

There is preserved here a sabre, which was carried by one of the 
Ayletts in the War of 1 8 1 2 until broken in a hand-to-hand encounter 
with an English sailor; also a pair of duelling pistols, which have a 
curious history. It appears that in 1809 young Philip Aylett was 
provided by his father with a negro, two horses, five hundred 
dollars, and a gold watch, which had been presented to his mother 
by Patrick Henry, and young Aylett started for Tennessee to prac- 
tice law. He was a very high-spirited young man and full of life. 
He soon got rid of his cash, the negro, and his horses, and became 
involved in an altercation with Colonel Sam Houston, which resulted 
in a duel. Houston furnished the weapons. They fired twice at 
each other at thirty paces, but neither was seriously injured, and 
they became subsequently such good friends that Houston made 
Aylett a present of the pistols. They were broken and disfigured 
by Union soldiers during the late war. There is also here a fishing 
kit, which has been in the Aylett family for more than two hundred 
years, and a liquor case containing six decanters and two goblets, 
which has participated in many a celebration and fish-fry in days 
gone by. 

The watch referred to above is also preserved in the family as 
a precious relic. 

19 



OLD HOMES. 



The present owner of the place, Colonel William Roane Aylett, 
is directly descended from the West family, whose pedigree is 
referred to elsewhere. 



MOUNT PLEASANT. 

Now owned by James Armistead Robins. The old house is said 
to have been built by the Gregory family in 1734. 

MOUNT ZOAR. 

The old home of the Pollards, now owned by Edward Spots- 
wood Pollard, Esquire, previously by his father, Robert Pollard, and 
grandfather, Robert Pollard. It is located at Ayletts, a little village 
on the Mattapony River. The old house was an imposing structure, 
built by Robert Pollard, who was Clerk of King William County 
for over forty years. The house was burned in 1850 by a serving 
maid, who was anxious for the family to go to Richmond, where 
she had a lover. It was rebuilt, but burned again in 1890, and the 
massive chimneys alone remain. 

Robert Pollard, senior, married Martha Russell, of French 
descent. He had ten sisters and brothers, viz : Anne, Robert, 
Kate, Sallie, Edward, Camm, Elizabeth, James, and Richard. 
His children were as follows: Robert, Byrd, James Otway, William 
George, Evelyn Videlle, Rosalie, Maria Ellen, Ellen Byrd, Eliza 
Dandridge (who married Major Beverly B. Douglass), and Edward 
Spotswood, married Mary Douglass, in Richmond County. 

Robert Pollard, junior, married, 1809, Evelyn Byrd Chamber- 
layne, daughter of Byrd Chamberlayne, of King William County, 
buried in the family graveyard along with many others of the same 
line. Thomas Chamberlayne, the father of Byrd Chamberlayne, 
married Wilhelmina, a daughter of William Byrd, of Westover, 
and was lost at sea with his son Otway Byrd in 1 799, while Lieu- 
tenant in the United States Navy.

Was many years ago the homestead of the Pannill family. 
Located on the high banks of the Pamunkey River, and now owned 
by Doctor Julien T. Edwards.

RUMFORD ACADEMY. 

This is one of the oldest places of education in the State. It 
dates its usefulness from the beginning of the present century. It 
was built and formerly endowed by the proceeds of a lottery, as 
was customary in those days. Spencer Roane was one of the com- 
missioners. It was originally intended as a preparatory school for 
William and Mary College, and many of the alumni of the latter 
received their early training in this old building. It is constructed 
of glazed brick imported from England, and is renowned for the 
distinguished men and women who learned their early lessons at 
"Old Rumford." 

SPRING BANK. 

Now occupied by George Haviland Burke, son of Robert Burke 
and grandson of Waller Burke, who married Mary (Polly) C. 
Edwards. The old family Bible of the Burkes here contains many 
interesting items. Little can be learned about the origin of the 

21 



OLD HOMES. 



Burke family. William Burke, the first of the name we learn 
of, settled in Virginia about 1780. He married a Miss Waller, of 
"White Bank," and his sons intermarried with the Edwards'. 
They have been for several generations substantial citizens of King 
William County, and were conspicuous for their devotion to the 
Southern Confederacy, a number of them entering the Confederate 
Army, several being killed in the defense of their country in that 
great struggle. 

SWEET HALL. 

This curious old house was built about 1720, and was one of the 
Claiborne homesteads for many years. It was afterwards occupied 
by the Ruffins, who dwelt here during the Revolutionary War. 
The next occupant was a man named Videlle, who committed 
suicide in one of the rear chambers. Captain Sterling Lipscomb, 
father-in-law of the present occupant, R. T. Puller, then acquired 
the property, and it has remained in the Lipscomb family since. 

The windows in the house are constructed unusually high in 
order to prevent the Indians from shooting arrows in the rooms 
from their canoes on the Pamunkey River, which flows at the foot 
of the hill on which it stands. 

Here is located the old Sweet Hall Ferry, established about 
two hundred years ago, and which, by a provision in the Code of 
Virginia, is allowed to charge eight cents for each horse and eight 
cents for each man carried over, and no more. 

There are several noted tombstones on the place:

WATERVILLE. 



This place was formerly known as ' ' Windsor Shade, " and is 
situated on a high bluff overlooking the Pamunkey River. The 
house was built by James Ruffin in 1794, and is very large and 
roomy, with massive foundations of stone. The space between 
the walls and weather-boarding is filled with brick and mortar, and 
the house was esteemed a fortress in those days. 

2^ 



OLD HOMES. 



There is preserved here a piece of pig iron, which was smelted 
at the old " Principio Furnace," with which George Washington's 
father had the contract for hauling ore in 1750, and as the relic 
bears the inscription "Principio 1750," it is probable that Augustine 
Washington may have handled this very piece. 

The place is now owned by Henry Corr, son of Captain Henry 
Corr and Lucy Ammon Lipscomb. 

There are on the place the ruins of a much older house, one 
of the bricks of which has been preserved bearing date 1600, and 
was undoubtedly imported from England soon after the settlement 
of the Colony.

OLD FAMILIES. 



ALLEN AND TRIMBLE. 

Captain James Trimble was born in Augusta County, Virginia, in 
1756, and was reared amidst the dangerous surroundings of pioneer life 
in that wild section. His father, John Trimble, appeared before the 
Orange County Court in 1740 with Alexander Breckinridge, David 
Logan, and others, to prove their importation, and was subsequently 
killed by the Indians, and Captain James Trimble was himself taken 
prisoner and adopted by one of the chiefs. He was rescued by his half- 
brother, Captain John Moffett (their mother being Sarah, daughter 
of John McDowell and Magdalena Wood, who married first George 
Moffet, second John Trimble), and at the age of eighteen participated 
in the bloody battle of Point Pleasant. He afterward served in the 
Revolutionary War under General Lewis. He married Jane Allen 
about 1780, the daughter of James and (Peggy) Margaret Allen, of 
Augusta County, Virginia, who was born March 15, 1755. Her ~~ 
father, James Allen, and uncle, Hugh Allen, had been noted Indian 
fighters. The latter was killed at the Battle of Point Pleasant. 

The Aliens and Trimbles were neighbors and connected by inter- | 
marriages, and after the Revolutionary War removed to Kentucky, ' 
in the great Company of Emigrants under command of General 
Knox, and settled in Fayette County. They were conspicuous in • 
the early history of Kentucky, and left many descendants. Captain 
James Trimble acquired much property and many slaves, and, hav- 
ing scruples about the institution of slavery, made application to the 
courts at Lexington for power to manumit them. His request was 
several times refused, but finally granted through the efforts of 
Henry Clay, then a young lawj'er from Virginia, who was beginning 
to make his powers known. 

the mean time Captain Trimble had made arrangements to 

; to Ohio. He spent several seasons preparing a new home 

nsai" ^lillsboro, but died before the family settled there in 1804. 

His S' IS became distinguished men. Three of them held commis-

sions in the War of 1812, Allen Trimble was Governor of Ohio, 
William Trimble was Lieutenant-Colonel in the Regular Army, and 
also United States Senator, dying while a member of the Senate 
at the age of thirty-five years, in 1821; Joseph M. Trimble was a 
prominent preacher, and Doctor Cary Trimble was a member of 
Congress. The Aliens referred to in the Edwards Genealogy 
are descended from James Allen, the father of Jane Allen Trimble.

mother inscribed the following lines in the (Henley) Bible: 
• ' Stay, my dear children, take thy dear mother too, nor 
leave her here, a spectacle of woe." In January, 1779, she, 
however, married again, and survived her second husband,

BRAXTON. 

Carter Braxton, one of the signers of the Declaration of Inde- 
pendence, was the son of George Braxton, a wealthy planter of 
" Newington," King and Queen County, where he was born, Septem- 
ber lo, 1736. His mother was the daughter of Robert, known as 
"King" Carter, President of the Colonial Council. Carter Braxton 
was educated at William and Mary College. He inherited a con- 
siderable estate from his father, which was largely increased by his 
marriage, at the age of nineteen, on July 16, 1755, with Judith, the 
daughter of Christopher Robinson, of Middlesex, by the consent of 
his guardian, Colonel Humphrey Hill, of Hillsborough. He built 
the mansion at "Elsing Green" in 1758. His wife died after a 
few years, and he traveled in Europe for some time before entering 
into the active public life which is too well known to require 
repetition here. 

BRECKNOCK. 

(Nee Par7'is Cisio.) 

The Stacy family is descended from the ancient English family 
of Brecknock, dating back to the reign of Henry VI, the descent 
being shown by a chart in possession of the family, from which 
the following is taken : 

1. William Brecknock. 1440. 

2. Robert Brecknock. Baptized 1470. 

3. Roger Brecknock. 1508. 

4. Roger Brecknock. Baptized 1551. Lived at Radcliffe and HucknalL

BUTLER. 

Herveius Walter, who married Maud de Valois, was one of the 
companions of William the Conqueror. His brother Hubert was 
Archbishop of Canterbury in 11 93, and Chancellor, Chief Justice, 
and Treasurer of England. Theobald Walter, the son of Herveius, 
accompanied Henry H to Ireland in 1171, and was created Chief 
Butler of Ireland in 1177, hence the name Butler. The family 
rapidly increased in power and wealth and received various titles 
and honors.

OLD FAMILIES. 



James, the seventh Butler and second Earl Carrick, obtained 
license for the sum of two thousand marks to marry whom he 
pleased, and selected Eleanor, daughter of Humphrey de Bohun, 
whose wife was Elizabeth, daughter of Edward I, and his wife the 
celebrated Eleanor of Castile. On account of this alliance with the 
Plantagenets, James Butler was created Earl of Ormonde. 

Thomas the seventh Earl of Ormonde's daughter Margaret mar- 
ried Sir William Boleyne, whose daughter Anne was one of the 
unfortunate wives of Henry VIII, by whom she was beheaded. 

Walter Butler, of Kilcash, grandson of James, ninth Earl of 
Ormonde, had a son Thomas, who succeeded to the title as eleventh 
Earl, his elder brother dying without male issue ; but his estates 
were confiscated by King James, and he was for eight years a 
prisoner in the Fleet. He regained his liberty and married Helena, 
eldest daughter of Edmund, Viscount Montgarret, and had a son 
Thomas and several daughters. 

Governor Alexander Spotswood was a favorite of the old Duke 
of Marlborough, and through his influence was appointed Governor 
of the Virginia Colony. He married Butler Brayne, the grand- 
daughter of the above Sir Walter Butler, eleventh Earl of Ormonde, 
and came to Virginia. One of their daughters, Anne Butler, mar- 
ried Bernard Moore, of Chelsea, King William County, and left 
many noted descendants, among them Anne Butler, who married 
Charles Carter, of "Shirley, " grandparents of General Robert E. 
Lee; Lucy, who married Reverend Henry E. Skyren, the noted 
minister of Acquinton Church, and others. Mrs. Bernard Moore 
was a great beauty. Mrs. Robert Dunbar, of Falmouth, a grand- 
daughter of Lady Spotswood, left a description of how ' ' she 
appeared in a fawn-colored satin, square in the neck, over a blue 
satin petticoat, with satin shoes and buckles to match on her very 
small and beautifully shaped feet." 

Representatives of this family settled in Virginia at a very early 
date. There were several branches resident there early in the 
seventeenth century. There was an Edward Butler living in Vir- 
ginia, February i6, 1623 ; Francis Butler in the muster of Govern- 
or's men at " Pasbehaighs, " who came in the " Bonaventure, " aged 
eighteen; George Butler came in the "David" from Gravesend,

September, 1635; Henry and John Butler in the "Assurance" from 
London, July, 1635 (there was a John Butler in the London Com- 
pany); John Butler came in the " Safety," August, 1635, and another 
John Butler in the "George," August, 1635; John Butler in the 
"Falcon," December, 1635; John Butler from Barbadoes to Vir- 
ginia, July 4, 1679, and a James Butler from same place in Decem- 
ber, 1679, bringing three negro servants. The direct line of 
Wealthean Butler, the wife of Ambrose Edwards, is difficult to 
determine. She was known to be related to Colonel Reuben Butler, 
of the Revolutionary War, and is said to have been descended from 
the same family as Jane Butler, the first wife of Augustine Wash- 
ington, and whose father was Major Caleb Butler, of Westmoreland. 
Isaac A. Butler, now living at Ante, Virginia, is undoubtedly of this 
family, and his father, W. R. Butler, was the son of William Butler, 
who had a brother Percival Butler, who went to Kentucky. From 
a reliable source it is learned that this family intermarried with the 
King William Edwards about the middle of last century {vide, 
Ambrose Edwards, who married Wealthean Butler). These Butlers 
claim descent from the Butlers of "Dunboyne" and "Ormonde," 
mentioned as among the most eminent of the Anglo-Norman families 
in Ireland. The coat of arms of the Virginia Butler family is the 
same, and later was quartered with that of the Beckwiths, with whom 
they intermarried. The name of Peirce or Percival is frequently 
repeated in the descendants, and the line is a noted one. John 
Bartholomew Depuy, one of the Huguenot emigrants, had a son, 
James L. Depuy, who married Amanda Butler, and his son Reuben 
married a Ruffin. Thomas Butler was one of the executors of 
William Aylett's will. Mr. Lawrence Washington had a silver 
waiter with the Butler-Beckwith arms engraved thereon. Beckwith 
Butler was guardian of the children of Margaret, the widow of 
William Robinson. Lawrence Butler, William Aylett, and John 
Washington were witnesses to the deed from Roger Gregory con- 
veying the Mount Vernon estate to Augustine Washington in 1726. 
Lawrence Washington left "his Godson, Lawrence Butler, a tract 
of land adjoining Meredith Edwards ' in 1697.

CLAIBORNE. 

The name Cliburne, now spelled Claiborne, is first mentioned 
in the Domesday Survey Book, a. d. 1086, Volume i, 234, where 
the Leicestershire possessions of Robert de Veci, who inherited the 
lands of Ethelric, are mentioned. The property was divided into 
two Moieties, Cliburn Tailbois and Cliburn Hervey — the former 
derived from the Barons of Kendal, the latter from Hervey de Veci « 
le Breton. There is some obscurity about the descent in the 
eleventh and twelfth centuries, but the line appears to be as follows: 

Hervey DE Cliburn. A. D. 1134. 

Hervey de Cliburn. A. D. 1174. 

Alan de Cliburne. A. D. 12 17-1267. Married Joan de Ravenswet,

COLE. 

There were several William Coles in the early history of the 
Colony. William Cole came to Virginia in 161 8, aged nineteen 
years, and was Burgess for "Nutmeg Quarter," in Warwick County, 
1629. He is thought to have been the father of William Cole, of 
the Council, and they were supposed to be descended from Sir 
William Cole, First Provost of Ennis-Killen, who commanded a 
regiment against the Rebels in Ireland in 1643. 

Mr. Richard Gregory, born January 12, 1758, son of Roger 
Gregory and Mary Cole Claiborne, left a written statement, which 
was prepared by him, and which reads as follows: 

"There were two sisters, named Mary Cole and Jane Cole. Mary 
married a Mr. West, a lineal descendant of Lord Delaware, by whom she 
had two sons, John and Thomas West. After the death of Mr. West, Mary 
married Ferdinand Leigh, by whom she had a son and a daughter, named 
William and Mary. William Leigh married a Miss Watkins, of Chesterfield, 
by whom she had Benjamin Watkins Leigh and several daughters. Jane 
Cole, the other sister, married Colonel Nathaniel Claiborne, by whom she 
had two sons, viz., Thomas and William, and five daughters, namely, Mary 
Cole and others. Mary Cole Claiborne married Roger Gregory, by whom 
she had Richard and four other sons, and a daughter named Mary Cole, who 
married Herbert Claiborne, of Dinwiddle, and died after the birth of her son, 
Gregory Claiborne. After the death of Colonel Nathaniel Claiborne, Jane

Claiborne married Stephen Bingham, by whom she had a son named Roscoe 
Cole Bingham. After the death of Bingham she married Colonel Francis 
'^West, by whom she had three sons, Roger, Richard, and West Gregory, and 
several daughters. Roger Gregory (my father) married Mary Cole Clai- 
borne, by whom he had Richard and four other sons and a daughter, as 
before stated." 

The same facts, with additional data below, were taken from the 
Bible of Richard Gregory, which was owned by Doctor William W. 
Gregory, of Charlotte, North Carolina : 

"Roger Gregory, my father, married Mary Cole Claiborne, and had 
Richard and five other children, as stated above. 

' ' Richard married the widow of William Broadnax, who was the daughter 
of Colonel Seth Ward, and had four children, Martha, Richard, Maria, and 
Seth. 

"Martha married General John Pegram, of Dinwiddle County, and had 
five sons, James West Pegram and four others, and several daughters. 

' ' Richard Gregory married, secondly, Elizabeth Wilkinson, daughter of 
Colonel Nathaniel Wilkinson, of Henrico County, by whom he had William 
W. Gregory, four sons and six daughters. 

"Doctor William W. Gregory married Elizabeth R. Taylor, daughter of 
Thomas Taylor, of Richmond, Virginia, by whom he had, in 1843, three 
sons, Thomas, Richard, and William Gregory."

. COLEMAN. 

This family had many representatives in the latter half of the 
last century. We do not find any connected data. James Coleman 
was Godfather of Ambrose Madison, brother of President James 
Madison, March 2, 1756. Jane Coleman, who married John Pem- 
berton, was probably the daughter of Robert Coleman, of Culpeper 
County, who married Sarah Anne Saunders, and died about 1793. 
The town of Fairfax, now Culpeper Court House, was founded on 
fifty acres of his land in 1759. Sarah Anne Coleman married 
Charles Duller Claiborne, son of William Stirling Claiborne and 
Cornelia Roane, and grandson of Sterling Claiborne. James Cole-

DANDRIDGE. 

Colonel William Dandridge, of "Elsing Green," and Colonel 
John Dandridge, of New Kent, were probably brothers. They 
settled on opposite sides of the Pamunkey River. They bore the 
same arms as the Dandridges of Great Malvern, Worcestershire, 
England. 

Colonel William Dandridge built a wharf at Hampton in 17 17. 
He married Euphan, probably the daughter of James Wallace, and 
widow of Wilson Roscoe. He moved to King William County prior 
to 17 19 (his first wife being dead), and married Unity, daughter of 
Colonel Nathaniel West. He was a member of the Council in 1727, 
and subsequently received a Commission in the Royal Navy, and 
commanded the "South Sea," and participated in the attack on 
St. Augustine and the siege of Carthagena. He died 1743. Of his 
children. Captain Nathaniel West Dandridge married Dorothea,

173 1, and married, first, 1749, Colonel Daniel Parke Custis, and 
after his death married, second, January 6, 1759, Colonel George 
Washington. 

DICKEY-DUNBAR. 

The Dunbars, of Scotland, are descendants of the Earls of 
March and Dunbar, who claimed descent from Gospatrick, Ruler of 
Northumberland, one of the seven Saxon Kingdoms. Hancock 
Dunbar Edwards, who lived in Saline County, Missouri, in July, 
1880, stated that he was then seventy-five years old, and that he 
was descended through his mother from the above family, and 
claimed a connection with Colonel Dunbar, who is frequently men- 
tioned in the " Dinwiddie Papers." Colonel Dunbar was in com- 
mand of the British troops who suffered so severely in ' ' Braddock's 
Defeat." Other Dunbars settled in the Virginia Colony. 

Daniel Dunbar was one of the appraisers of the estate of 
Matthias Hubard, in York County, 1667. 

Robert Dunbar was a Scotch merchant at Falmouth, and prior 
to 1794 married Elizabeth Gregory, daughter of Francis Thornton 
and Anne Thompson, and granddaughter of Francis Thornton and 
Frances Gregory, the daughter of Roger Gregory and Mildred 
Washington. 

Reverend Hancock Dunbar was minister in Saint Stephen's 
^Parish, King and Queen County, 1754 to 1774. 

James Dickey married Joanna, the daughter of Reverend Iverson 
Lewis, born 1741, and Frances Byrd, of King and Queen County. 
One of the Dickeys married a daughter of Reverend Hancock Dun- 
bar, and had two daughters, Mary Dunbar and Barbara. 

James Edwards, son of Ambrose Edwards, the first, married 
Mary Dunbar Dickey, and it was their son, Hancock Dunbar 
Edwards, who is referred to at the beginning of this sketch. Mary 
Dunbar Dickey's sister Barbara never married.

1795, married, November 13, 1774, Edwin Conway Garlington, of 
Lancaster County. 

James Dunbar was Sergeant in Captain Porterfield's company, 
Revolutionary War. 

EDWARDS. 

The name of Edwards is frequently found in the early annals of 
Virginia, and the first of the name appears to have reached the 
Colony soon after the settlement at Jamestown. There was a John 
Edwards, of "Northumberland House," in 1653, from whom the 
descent of many Edwards' in Virginia is claimed, and the families of 
Hayden Ed^wards in Kentucky and Ninian Edwards in Illinois are 
doubtless descended from that source. Then there was a Richard 
Edwards in Virginia in 1694, from whom was probably descended 
Thomas Edwards, the old Clerk of Lancaster County, Leroy 
Edwards, Griffin Edwards, and many others of that line ; but so far 
as our investigation extends there is no direct connection between 
the above families and the King William Edwards', whose line is 
recorded here, unless we e.xcept the probable common descent of 
all the Edwards' from the ancient family of that name in Wales, 
where the Edwards can be traced back for more than six hundred 
years. 

The King William Edwards family dates back to about 1745, 
when Ambrose Edwards settled in King William County, Virginia, 
"on a large tract of land granted by the King," and while we have 
been unable to discover any mention of said grant in any of the 
available records, yet it is asserted that the original patent is in 
existence, and is ' ' supposed to be among the papers of the Virginia 
Historical Society." The King William County Records have been 
twice destroyed by fire, and the ordinary sources of information in 
that direction are cut off. However, it is known that Ambrose 
Edwards possessed a large tract of land, comprising several thousand 
acres, which was divided among his heirs at his death, and a great 
deal of it is still held by his descendants. 

It appears that some time previous to 1745 "a clergyman of the 
Church of England," named Edwards, emigrated to America with 
his three sons, named respectively Robert, John, and Ambrose. 

41 



OLD FAMILIES. 



Robert settled in New York and acquired considerable property. 
\(See Edwards' Estate.) John settled in South Carolina, married, 
and left numerous descendants scattered throughout the Southern 
States. Ambrose located in King William County, Virginia, where 
he continued to reside until his death in 1810. It is said that his 
father and brother Robert visited him about 1770. Nothing further 
is known of the father, except the tradition that he died in America. 
Robert returned to England. 

Ambrose Edwards was born in England, about 1726. Emigrated 
to Virginia about 1745, and settled in King William County. He 
built a fine colonial mansion which he called "Cherry Grove," and 
the quaint old house, now gray with age, which remains in very fair 
condition to this day, has been occupied by five generations of the 
Edwards family. He married, about 1750, Wealthean Butler, 
whose origin is undetermined. There are a number of the descend- 
ants of the Butler family still living in this and the adjoining counties, 
but their family records do not extend so far back. The name has 
been repeated so often in the descendants that it is surmised her 
family was of some distinction, and as her husband was educated, 
refined, and of ample means, it is hardly likely he would have 
chosen a wife with other characteristics. It is noted that the first 
wife of Augustine Washington was Jane Butler, the daughter of 
Colonel Caleb Butler, and there is a tradition in the family that 
Wealthean was descended from the same stock. The fruit of this 
marriage were five sons and four daughters, who grew to mature 
age and intermarried with the neighboring families, and all of whom 
left descendants. 

Ambrose Edwards lived in considerable style, and in addition to 
farming conducted a mill, distillery, and perhaps other enterprises. 
His old papers show the magnitude and latitude of his transactions, 
and his shipments of tobacco to Page's Richmond Warehouse were 
not the least important. His hogsheads were marked with his 
monogram, J^. He was also a money lender, as evidenced by 
sundry notes and bonds held by him at his death. 

Late in life he contracted a second marriage with Barbara, the 
widow of Henry Finch, and entered into an ante-nuptial agreement, 
of record in King William County, which, among other provisions,

Edwards and Barbara Finch, and whereas, the said Barbara Finch 
is possessed of considerable estate, both real and personal," it was 
agreed that she should have full control of her own property, and 
in the event of his prior demise she was to make no claim on his 
estate. This contract was recorded December 22, 1800. There 
was no issue from this marriage. He died the latter part of Decem- 
ber, 1 8 10, and was buried in the family burying-ground at "Cherry 
Grove." His sons, Samuel, James, Ambrose, and Thomas were 
appointed executors of his will, and his large estate was divided and 
settled during the ensuing year. The original papers, showing many 
curious details, are in existence, and there is abundant evidence of 
his position and worth. He was attended in his last illness by his 
friend. Doctor William P. Claiborne, whose bill for services is a 
peculiar document. Some of his old accounts show the curious 
customs of the times. He always laid in just before Christmas a 
goodly supply of whisky and Antigua rum, a suggestion of egg-nogg 
and Yule-tide festivities. His coffin was furnished by Reuben 
Dugar, and cost twelve dollars, the same amount being paid to the 
minister. Reverend John Mill, who officiated at his funeral, on which 
occasion it appears twenty gallons of wine, besides other refresh- 
ments, were consumed by his sorrowing friends. 

The last visit of Doctor Claiborne was on December 23, 18 10, 
probably the date of his death, and his will was probated in January 
following. He was buried in the old family graveyard at ' ' Cherry 
Grove," where a stone formerly marked the place, but is no longer 
perceptible. 

Regarding the English ancestry of this family mucli inquiry has 
been made without tangible results. Ambrose Edwards brought 
with him a seal, or coat-of-arms, which was handed down in the 
family, but finally lost or stolen, and only indifferent descriptions can 
be obtained. In this connection the following account of the 
Edwards', of York, has been received, and the arms correspond 
somewhat with the vague descriptions of Ambrose Edwards' seal. 
The fact that there was a clergyman in the English family, contem- 
porary with the English clergyman who came to America, bringing

his three sons, is curious but not necessarily conclusive. The 
record is given as received, and may prove a clew : 

EDWARDS" OF YORK. 

William Edwards was of an ancient Welsh family who settled in Yorkshire. 
Served as Lieutenant-Colonel in the Civil Wars, under 
Charles I, and lost his life, and his lands were sequestrated. 
He married the sister or aunt of Sir Solomon Swale, of 
Swaledale, in the county of York. Does not appear to 
have had issue. His brother. 

Sir James Edwards, Knight, was Lord-Mayor of London, in 1679, and 
loaned King Charles II thirty thousand pounds while that 
prince was in exile at Breda, which debt was honorably 
discharged after the restoration, when he received the honor 
of knighthood. He died 13th February, 1690; was buried 
at Guildhall Chapel, London, and was succeeded by his 
nephew, 

James Edwards, Esq., who was created a baronet 7th December, 1691. 
This Sir James was of Reedham Hall, in Norfolk, of which 
county he was Sheriff in 1696. He was also a Gentleman 
of the Privy Chamber of the King. He married twice : first, 
the daughter of Mr. Alderman Wright, of York, and had a 
son named James, who succeeded him. He married, 
secondly. Miss Howell, of Hackey, and had one son, who 
was a clergyman, and four daughters, Meriel, Sarah, Cather- 
ine, and Jane. He died in March, 1702, and was succeeded 
by his older son, 

James Edwards, Bart., F. R. S., who married, in 17 18, Mary, only daughter 
and heir of Matthew Kirby, D. D., of Walton-upon-Thames. 
He left no issue, and died in 1744, and was succeeded by 
his half-brother, 

Sir Nathaniel Edwards, Bart., Clerk, Vicar of Weybridge, in Surrey, who 
died unmarried loth March, 1764, when the baronetcy 
became extinct. Arms: Erm., a lion rampant guardant, az. 
a canton or.

DOCTOR LEMUEL EDWARDS. 
"By their fruits ye shall know them." 

The subject of this sketch was born in King William County, 
Virginia. His mother died wh«n he was ten years of age, and his 
father seven years later. He was employed in a store at King 
William Court House at thirteen, and a year after Baylor Temple, 
of Walkerton, employed him, and gave him an interest in the busi- 
ness two years later. Remaining here three years longer he retired 
with one thousand dollars cash, and having early developed a taste 
for learning, which was encouraged by his friends, among whom 
was Sherwin McCrea, the eminent lawyer, he went to Richmond 
and in due time graduated at the Richmond Medical College. He 
then took a diploma in the Botanico-Medical College, of Columbus, 
Ohio, returned to Virginia and began the practice of medicine, 
which he has followed with eminent success for over fifty years in 
King William, New Kent, and King and Queen counties. 

His early convictions and deep studies induced in him a great 
desire to spread the Gospel, and he has devoted many years to the 
work of the Master. He has been instrumental in building three 
churches, the last on his own land at Lanesville, and has preached 
in two of them regularly for many years past. He has been a 
prolific writer, principally on religious subjects, and published several 
books. For nearly seventeen years he served on the bench in the 
King William County Court, and decided many important cases. 
On one occasion he issued a warrant against General Robert E. Lee 
for Judge Roger Gregory, who had just begun the practice of law. 
In the settlement of the case. General Lee being in Doctor Edwards' 
office, declined some slight liquid refreshment, though the season 
was oppressive, so strict were his views on temperance. This epis- 
ode recalls the story of the flask of brandy given the General by his 
mother when he started on the Mexican campaign, and which he 
returned to her unopened after the war was over. Doctor 
Edwards has also been engaged in mercantile pursuits, and in the 
milling and lumber business. He lost heavily by the war, but 
congratulates himself that he is now ' ' poor enough to enter the 
Kingdom of God," which his favorite study shows is a difficult task 

45

for the rich. His long hfe has been spent in "going about doing 
good," and in this he has followed the footsteps of his Divine 
Master. His moral life has been singularly pure and free from the 
vices and foibles of mankind. 

EDWARDS' ESTATE. 

' There has been a tradition in the Edwards family for several 
generations that there is a vast estate situated in New York City 
which would eventually revert to the heirs of Ambrose Edwards, of 
King William County. Intense research and correspondence vwth 
several hundred of his descendants fails to develop any actual facts 
on which such a pretense is founded. The tradition is that Robert 
Edwards, a brother of Ambrose, was engaged in various filibustering 
expeditions, commanding privateers and gaining much filthy lucre by 
his depredations on the high seas in the service of his Britannic 
Majesty, George HI, of inglorious memory. He made his head- 
quarters in New York, and is said to have invested largely in lands 
^on Manhattan Island. 

About the beginning of the struggle for independence of the 
Colonies, the said Robert Edwards, being a pronounced Royalist, 
decided it would be safer and better to be away from America, and as 
the story goes, he leased his large holdings in New York for ninety- 
nine years and retired to England, where he subsequently died 
without marrying and intestate. 

Prior to his departure he visited his brother Ambrose in Virginia, 
and it is thought that he acquainted him with his affairs. However 
this was, it became early the talk in the family that there was such 
an estate, and the fiame was kept alive until, about iS68, a news- 
paper advertisement calling on the heirs of Robert Edwards to 
communicate with certain parties in New York caused a great flut- 
ter, and a lawyer was engaged to look into the matter. His report 
was not encouraging, and while he gave an opinion that there was 
such an estate, the necessary proofs were apparently unavailable, 
and the proposition to raise some thousands of dollars for investigation 
in England, etc., was received rather coldly and the subject dropped. 

Since that time periodical mention has been made of the 
"Estate" in newspapers, and "Edwards Heirs" in various parts of 

45 



OLD FAMILIES. 



the country have held meetings and undertaken to devise means to 
unearth the hundreds of millions said to be slumbering in the 
metropolis. 

Designing persons have not failed to take advantage of the 
credulity of the supposed heirs, and recent interest in the subject 
has been awakened only to discover the machinations of "confi- 
dence" operators who claim to have the proofs, but who demand 
large sums for their information. # 

"Where there is so much smoke, there ..inust be some iire, " and 
it is reasonably certain that a tradition so widely disseminated and 
so accurately balanced as this must be based on some fact. But to 
build any hopes on the outcome of such an idea would be false and 
even cruel. If, in the course of time, the evidence confirming the 
tradition should come to light, it will at least be easier, with the 
information in this volume, to locate the heirs; and as so much has 
been discovered in the short space of a year regarding this remark- 
able family which was before unknown, or rather hidden from sight, 
it may be that other discoveries will be made which may draw back 
the veil and reveal a rich inheritance. 

In the mean time a little seasonable advice will not be amiss : 
Let all our old people remember that they have managed to sur- 
mount the difficulties of life without the assistance of the ill-gotten 
gains of Robert Edwards, and the 3'ounger ones who have the 
battle of life before them may profit by their example and be 
sure that no acquisition of wealth in this wa}" can be half so sweet 
as the reward they may expect from their own honest, earnest efforts 
to build up a competence, and it will be much better if the whole 
subject is ignored and forgotten. 

ELLETT. 

The origin of this family has not been learned. The name is 
common in Virginia, and some authorities have surmised that Aylett 
and Ellett were at one time identical. 

We find, however, that early in the eighteenth century there 
lived in King William County a certain Ellett whose first name has 
been lost, but he was known to be the father of two sons, from 
whom the descent is traced :

FONTAINE. 

John de la Fontaine, born in the year 1 500, and who was assas- 
sinated in 1563, was the father of James de la Fontaine, who was 
born in the year 1550, and died in 1633, at the age of eighty-three 
years. The latter was the father of James de la Fontaine, who was 
the youngest child and only son, and who was born in the year 1603. 
With him the dc la, indicative of the nobility of the family, was 
dropped. He married Marie Chaillon, of Pons, in Saintonge, in 
the year 1641, and was the father of James Fontaine, who was 
born at Jenouille, on the 7th of April, 1658, and married Anne 
Elizabeth Boursiquot on the 8th of February, 1686, in the parish 
church of Barnstable, England, having escaped with her from 

51 



OLD FAMILIES. 



France and landed there on December i, 1685. This James Fon- 
taine was the father of Peter Fontaine, who was born in 1696 at 
Taunton, England, and also of John and Mary Fontaine. 

Peter Fontaine was first married to Elizabeth Fourreau, a grand- 
daughter of Captain Bouley, on the 29th of March, 17 14. He emi- 
grated to Virginia, accompanied by his wife, in February or March, 
171 5. Upon the death of his first wife he was married the second 
time to Elizabeth Wade, in Virginia. From this second marriage 
sprang Aaron Fontaine, who was born November 30, 1753, and died 
April, 1823, who was married three times, first, to Barbara Terrell, 
May 17, 1773. Elizabeth Fontaine, their daughter, was born Septem- 
ber 5, 1780, and on the 19th of May, 1799, was married to Edmund 
Bullock. She died 1 6th of June, 1807. There was issue of this 
marriage, Judge William Fontaine Bullock, Edward Bullock, and 
Mary Anne Bullock. Mary Anne Bullock married Thomas Hart 
Shelby, a son of Governor Isaac Shelby, of Kentucky. Their 
daughter, Elizabeth Fontaine Shelby, married William Bury Kinkead, 
the parents of Elizabeth Shelby Kinkead, who kindly furnished the 
following sketch (see also Kinkead Excursus) : 

"The de la Fontaines belonged to the ancient nobility of France, 
but they developed none of the degeneracy which often results from 
long material advancement and prosperity. They were vigorous 
people, whose nobility of thought and aspiration had the fitting 
accompaniment of nobility of station, and like the truly noble, they 
comprehended the relation of material and spiritual things, and were 
ever ready to sacrifice the lower for the higher. Thus, v/e find 
members of this family prominent among those true, earnest, 
enlightened spirits who became the leaders of Protestantism in 
France. 

"John de la Fontaine was born about the year 1500. His father, 
disliking the usual idle life of the nobility, obtained for his son a 
commission in the household of Francis I, in what was called ' ' Les 
Ordonnances du Roi. " The young officer conducted himself with 
such honor and uprightness that he retained his commission through 
the reigns of Francis I, Henry II, and Francis II. 

"Both John and his father had early become converts to Protest- 
antism, and during the troublous times which followed the spread of 
the reformed religion they were protected by the high position the 
former occupied at court. But the second )'ear of the reign of 
Charles IX, John voluntarily resigned his commission and retired to 

53 



OLD FAMILIES. 



his paternal estates in Maine. The Edict of Pacification had been 
passed, and the Protestants believed that oppression was ended. 
But their faith was deceived. Persecution, before open and with a 
show of justice, was now practiced with the cunning cruelty of 
secrecy. Great animosity was felt by the Catholic party to John de 
la Fontaine, who, by his elevated position, gave strength to the 
Protestants' cause. Assassins were sent to his house, and he was 
murdered (1563). His wife, trying to intercede for her husband, 
was murdered also, as was a faithful valet. The children, three 
boys, fled from their home and this awful tragedy in the midnight 
and made their way to Rochelle. In one moment they had been 
bereft of every thing except their pure faith, their intellectual 
strength, and their noble bearing. But the story of their lives indi- 
cates the reward which follows uprightness and earnest ability. 
Even the old material fortune was gained again to the family. 

"With James, grandson of John, the dc la, indicative of nobility, 
was dropped from the name. This James, a minister of the reformed 
religion, was a man of high spiritual and intellectual attainments. 
But his son James, also called to the ministry, was, perhaps, the 
most brilliant of the family. He possessed high courage and lofty 
characteristics of mind and soul, which enabled him to fulfill his 
unique and thrilling life. After the revocation of the Edict of 
Nantes he determined to leave friends, country, and fortune for 
his faith. He succeeded in escaping from France, taking with him 
his promised wife, Anne Elizabeth Boursiquot, to whom he was 
married on the 8th day of February, 1686, in the parish church at 
Barnstable, England. The actual occurrences of his life were like a 
romance. 

"Early in the eighteenth century the thoughts of the Fontaines 
turned to America. James never visited the New World, which 
was to become the home of his descendants. His son John, who 
had been an English officer, was the first to make the voyage. He 
purchased a plantation in Virginia, and sent for his brother Peter, 
who had been ordained a clergyman of the Church of England. 
They were soon joined by other members of the family, among 
the number Matthew Maury, who had married their sister, Mary 
Anne. They soon obtained honored positions in their new home, 
and their descendants have been people of distinction in Virginia 
and Kentucky." 



It is mentioned as a curious mutation of circumstances that the 
great persecutor of the Huguenots, Anne, due de Montmorenci, Gen- 
eral in command of the Royal Soldiery at Languedoc, France, is

FREEMAN. 

Captain Bridges Freeman was the first of the name in Virginia as 
far as the records show. He was Burgess from Pasbehaighs in 1629- 
30. He petitioned the Council to allow him to remove from Martin's 
Hundred, which was too much exposed to attacks from the Indians, 
and in 1632 he was Burgess from Chickahominy, and James City in 
1647, in which year he was appointed Collector of Revenue, Adjutant 
in 1652, and member of the King's Council. It was probably his

Humphrey Freeman is referred to as a servant of Colonel Cal- 
thorpe, and in 1662 had six years to serve under his articles, but 
which he was satisfying at the rate of sixteen hundred pounds of 
tobacco per annum, showing that he was no ordinary servant, but 
more likely a tenant farmer.

who died 1655, and there was a Captain Freeman in command of a 
vessel in the Virginia trade in 1646. 

Isaac and Stephen Freeman were soldiers in the Revolutionary

GREGORY. ^ 

The name of Roger and Richard Gregory is a familiar one in the 
early history of Virginia. There was a Roger Gregory among the 
Soldiers of the Commonwealth in Ireland in 1650, but long before 
that a Richard Gregory had settled in the colony, and is mentioned 
among the followers of Governor Yeardley at James City in 1620. 
He was then about forty years of age. He was probably the same 
as the Richard Gregory reported at Fleur de Hundred, February 
16, 1623. Richard Gregory was Vestryman in Gloucester County, 
1677, and may have been the same as Richard Gregory (i). The 
connection between these and the next Gregory of whom we find 
record is unknown. John Gregory, tailor, one of the conspirators in 
the Rebellion of 1674, in Surrey County, was probably distinct from 
John Gregory, pastor of the Upper Parish, Nansemond County, 
1680. Then there was an Anthony Gregory, public officer in Glou- 
cester County, 1698. Our line begins with : 

1. Richard Gregory.' Justice in King and Queen County, February 25, 

1699, who was undoubtedly the father of Roger (2) and 
Richard (3). 

2. Roger Gregory." Son of Richard Gregory (i). Born about 1690; 

died prior to 1732. Married Mildred, daughter of Lawrence 
Washington. On the 17th of May, 1736, Roger Gregory 
and Mildred, his wife, deeded the Mt. Vernon estate to 
Augustine Washington. They were then residents of Strat- 
ton Major Parish, King and Queen County. The witnesses 
were William Aylett, John Washington, and Lawrence But- 
ler. Issue : Frances, who married, September 3, 1736, 
Francis Thornton (see Thornton E.xcursus) ; Mildred, who 
married, October 28, 1740, John Thornton, and Elizabeth, 
who married four times: first, April 29, 1743, Henry Willis, . 
son of Colonel Henry Willis (who had married her mother); 
second,' Reuben Thornton; third. Doctor Thomas Walker, 
the Explorer, and fourth. Colonel Alcock, of the British 
Army. Mildred Gregory, the elder, was the godmother of

KING. 

An old family which settled first in Gloucester County, Virginia. 
The principal representative in the last century seems to have been 
Miles King. The given name Carver, which appears more than 
once, suggests a connection with the family of Captain William 
Carver, of Bacon's rebellion notoriety, one of the first rebels against 
the authority of England, and who was executed for his patriotism 
to the Colony. John King patented land in Gloucester County, Octo- 
ber 10, 165 1.

KINKEAD. 

This family settled first in Cumberland County, Pennsylvania. 
The records there disclose the will of John Kinkead, probated 
Au£,'ust 2, 1772, naming his wife Elizabeth, and children, Andrew, 
Thomas, and Elizabeth. The latter married John Waugh. He left a 
large estate, including many slaves. Also the will of George Kin- 
kead, August 30, 1790, naming his wife Jean, and sons, Andrew, 
John, and Mathew, daughter Mary, and nephews, Archibald and 
Andrew. 

A branch of the family removed to Augusta Count}', Virginia, 
about 1750, where George Kinkead was killed by Indians in 1756. 

John Kinkead removed from Augusta County, Virginia, to Ken- 
tucky, and settled near Danville in 1779. Two of his sons had pre- 
ceded him in Clarke's Expedition in 1776. 

There is on record in Woodford County the will of John Kin- 
kead, dated July 20, 18 17, naming his wife Margaret, and sons, 
Joseph, John, Archibald, who married Anne Quarles (see Edwards' 
Genealogy), James, Thomas, and William, and a daughter, Jane, the 

wife of Davis, then deceased, and a grandson, Preston W. 

Davis. 

Captain Joseph Kinkead, the son of Joseph Kinkead, who settled 
near Danville, was killed in the Battle of the Blue Licks, and 
William Baird, who married the latter's sister, laid out Bardstown, 
or Bairdstown, as it was first called.

OLD FAMILIES. 



Captain William Kinkead, Lieutenant and Adjutant in Revolu- 
tionary War, settled in Woodford County, Kentucky, in 1789. He 
was a relative of John Kinkead, of that county, but in what degree 
is not known. They both came to Kentucky from Pennsylvania via 
Augusta County, Virginia. Captain William Kinkead married Eleanor 
Guy, in Augusta County, and had issue : Margaret, Andrew, Isabella, 
Agnes, William, Eleanor, Susannah, Guy, Rebecca, and John. 

John Kinkead, the son of Captain William Kinkead, married 
Margaret Trotter Blackburn, and had issue : George Blackburn, 
Frances Peart, Prudence, Eleanor, and William Bury. 

William Bury Kinkead married Elizabeth Fontaine Shelby, and 
had issue : Margaret, Thomas, Shelby, George Blackburn, Frances 
Peart, Mary Shelby, Shelby, Edward, Eleanor Talbot, and Elizabeth 
Shelby, author of a history of Iventucky and other works, and who 
kindly furnished the sketches of the Kinkead and Fontaine families 
in this volume. 

' ' The Kincaid family, having its seat and origin in Stirlingshire, 
is one of the oldest in Scotland. The following is taken from Nis- 
bet's Heraldry : ' The Kincaids were in possession of Kincaid in 
1280, as is proved by a charter extant. Kincaid, Laird of Kincaid, 
of Stirlingshire, for his gallant service in rescuing the Castle of 
Edinburgh from the English in the time of Edward I, was made Con- 
stable of said Castle, and his posterity enjoyed that office for a long 
period, carrying the Castle in their Armorial Bearings in memory 
thereof to this day.' The family from which the American branch 
descends left Scotland after the troublous times of 1688, and settled 
first in the north of Ireland, from whence several brothers came to 
America in 1707, settling at or about Carlisle, Pennsylvania, and 
their descendants scattered through Virginia, Kentucky, Ohio, and 
Tennessee. 

" General William O. Butler said that his ancestors came over 
at the same time as the Kincaids, as did the Campbells and Stuarts 
also. These families all removed from Carlisle, Pennsylvania, to 
Augusta County, Virginia. I find Archibald Stuart, father of the 
late Honorable A. H. H. Stuart, among the witnesses to the deed of 
sale when, on the 28th of August, 1789, William Kinkead and Elea- 
nor, his wife, of the county of Augusta, conveyed to William 
Alexander, of the city of Richmond, in consideration of one thou- 
sand pounds, three hundred and fifty acres of land on the Calf Pas- 
ture River, etc.

' ' William Kinkead was born in Pennsylvania (I am not absolutely 
certain about the State, it may have been Virginia ; but my father 
believes that William Kinkead was born before the removal from 
Pennsylvania), January 9, 1736 ; died in Woodford County, May 3, 
1823. Eleanor Guy was born August 17, 1740; was married to 
William Kinkead, November 30, 1756, and died October 9, 1825. 

"The following is copied from my father's (William Bury 
Kinkead) narrative, above referred to : ' The ancestors of my 
grandparents (William and Eleanor Guy Kinkead) were Scotch 
people. They left Scotland after the battle of Bothwell Bridge, 
and went to Ireland, settling in the northern part of that coun- 
try ; my grandmother's people, about four miles out from Derry. 
They were devoted Presbyterians, but did not side with either of the 
extreme parties of that day. King William represented their ideas, 
and they held him in highest admiration. ' 

' ' I can well remember, a little boy of ten years of age, standing 
by my grandmother, and being delighted to listen to her give the 
history of that memorable siege, which she had heard from the lips 
of her mother, whose father was in the siege. I knew it all by 
heart ; and when afterwards I read the splendid description by 
Macaulay, Browning and the Montjoy and the Dartmouth were my 
familiar friends. 

" I have heard that my ancestor went to the city to unite in its 
defense, his wife remaining in the country. It is not needed I should 
detain you with an account of that noble people, and with what they 
endured. All know their courage, their unwavering determination, 
and their readiness to starve, but never to think of surrendering, 
which showed their high religious principles. These qualities still 
characterize their descendants in America. (We have in the family 
a gill measure which was picked up on the field of Derry by my 
ancestor, and preserved by him and his descendants to this present 
day.) 

' ' Not a great while after this the ancestors of my grandfather 
and grandmother emigrated to the United States. They first came 
to Pennsylvania, and soon after moved to Virginia, to the county of 
Augusta. My grandfather, William Kinkead, was born in 1736. My 
grandmother, Eleanor Guy, was four years younger than he was. * 
Here they became active members of the Timber Ridge Church. 
They settled, as I have always heard, on a beautiful place, which, 
when they determined to come to Kentucky, they sold to Mr. Will- 
iam Alexander, the father of Sir William Alexander, who was later 
on (from 1824-31) Lord Chief Baron of the Exchequer Court in 
England. Here they were living when my grandmother was cap-

tured by the Indians, April 14, 1764. Their home was quite a large 
one, and, being thought securer from the Indians at that time, many 
persons had placed goods in their charge. My grandfather was away 
from home when, most unexpectedly, a half dozen Indians broke in 
upon his family. As hastily as possible they snatched up every thing 
they could find, and hurried off with my grandmother and her three 
children, a girl of seven, a boy of four, and a girl of two. They 
made my grandmother carry the little girl ; a young Indian took 
charge of the little boy. Finding this child troublesome, they re- 
mained behind with him, and my grandmother saw him no more. 
They were in great haste to get away ; a council was held as to the 
killing of the little girl, but when they asked my grandmother if she 
thought her hair would be black, and she assured them it would be, 
they determined to save her. That they might travel faster, they 
took the child from my grandmother, and gave her a saddle to carry 
instead, which left her arms free, and so she could move more quickly. 
They thus pushed on, crossed the Ohio, and proceeded to their camp 
on the Muskingum. Here she was adopted by the chief as his 
child, and thereafter secured the greatest kindness. But her oldest 
child died, and her little daughter was kept from her. Three months 
after her capture a son was born to her. (This child was named An- 
drew for the little boy who had been killed by the Indians. Later 
on a daughter was named Margaret for the one who had died during 
the Indian captivity. ) When this occurred she left the camp attended 
by an old Indian woman who was very kind to her ; and during the 
whole time of her captivity they never failed to treat her with the 
greatest consideration. 

' ' A great many persons had been carried off by the Indians from 
Pennsylvania as well as from Virginia, and an expedition was set on 
foot to follow the Indians to the Muskingum. Colonel Bouquet 
took charge of it, and Colonel Lewis, if I remember right, had 
charge of the Virginia Volunteers (this was Colonel Charles Lewis, 
of Cedar Creek, see Lewis Excursus) ; my grandfather was among 
them. They marched to the Indian town, and the Indians agreed 
to surrender the prisoners. My grandfather soon found his wife, 
but their joy was abated because their little girl who had been 
taken from her mother had not yet been brought in to them. My 
grandmother had her infant cTiild in her arms, whom her husband 
had never seen. Finally a little savage girl was brought in. She 
fixed her gaze intently upon this little girl, and her mother's heart 
yearned to it ; gradually the features rose to her memory ; she all at 
once dropped the infant, seized the little girl, and hugging her to 
her bosom ran off with her alone. (In Bouquet's Expedition, page 
79, there is an account of this event.) She then exhibited to her

husband certain marks by which they could positively know their 
child. That little girl, Isabella Kinkead, was the great-grandmother 
of the fascinating Eva Douglas, now Mrs. John S. Wise, of New 
York. 

"After their return home, in 1778, my grandfather visited Ken- 
tucky. He came through Lexington, and he saw the beautiful coun- 
try of Woodford. He then returned to Virginia, and when Corn- 
wallis and Tarleton were ravaging Virginia, and things there seemed 
discouraging, these Scotch-Irish Presbyterians volunteered to go into 
service ; they elected my grandfather their captain. ' In March, 
1777, a company commanded by Captain William Kincaid (the spell- 
ing does not seem to have changed until after the Revolution) and 
Lieutenant James Steele marched from Staunton to the west fork 
of the Monongahela to protect the frontier from the Indians. ' ' In 
178 1 a company commanded by Captain \^'illiam Kincaid, Lieuten- 
ant Jacob Warwick, and Ensign Jonathan Humphreys served in 
Lower Virginia, under Colonel Sampson Matthews ' (Augusta Count}' 
Records), and they left their families for a six months' campaign, and 
remained down at Portsmouth, m.y grandfather taking with him his 
eldest son. 

' ' After the close of the Revolution, their children having all been 
born — my father, the youngest, was five years old at the time — in 
17S9, they came to Kentucky. My grandfather bought a beautiful 
farm in Woodford County, known as "Cane Spring," on the banks 
of the Elkhorn. Here he lived most peaceably after his long 
troubles and disasters, having settled most of his children around 
him, greatly respected by all the people of his count}', and here he 
died at the advanced age of 84. And there my father died, and 
then vay brother Frank." 

LEWIS. 

"General Robert Lewis came over about the year of 1645, en- 
tered lands, and made his home in one of the tide-water counties 
{Gloucester). His people had been Sheriffs, Sheriff Deputies, County 
Lieutenants, Justices, and members of Parliament from Brecknock, 
Pembroke, Glamorgan, and other counties of Wales, for centuries 
before he founded in this country a hardy and enduring race ; and 
to the present day, the name of Lewis belongs to the most promi- 
nent of the Welsh landed gentry. He had two sons, John and Will- 
iam. John married Isabella Warner, 'jdaughter of Captain Augustine 
Warner, also a Welshman, who was a member of the House of 
Burgesses from^ York County, in 1652, and again from Gloucester in 
1658-59, and a member of the Ro}'al Council in 1659-60. Another

ried Colonel Lawrence Towneley, and was the ancestress of ' Light 
Horse Harry, ' and of General Robert E. Lee. Captain Warner had 
also a son, Augustine Warner, born in Virginia, 1642, educated at 
the Merchants Tailors' School in London, and at Cambridge, and 
who was Speaker of the House of Burgesses in 1676-77, of the 
House succeeding the downfall of Bacon's Rebellion, and again in 
1680; and was a member of the Royal Council in 16S0-81. The 
latter was the Colonel Commandant of Gloucester County, and is 
known as ' Speaker ' Warner, to distinguish him from his father. 
His wife, Mildred, daughter of George Reade, who was Secretary of 
the Colony in 1637, acting Governor in 1638-39, a member of the 
House of Burgesses from James City County in 1649, ^^^ frequently 
thereafter ; a member of the Royal Council in 1657, 1658, 1659, 
/ 1660, and succeeding years. From the sons of George Reade, 
/ some of the most eminent men of Virginia and the South descended : 
I one of his descendants was Thomas Rootes, the grandfather of 
Howell Cobb, of Georgia. ' Speaker ' Augustine Warner and Mil- 
dred Reade had three daughters. The oldest, Mildred Warner, 
married Lawrence Washington, son of Colonel John Washington 
and Anne Pope ; Mary, the second daughter, married Colonel John 
Smith, of Purtons, son of the Major John Smith, who was Speaker 
of the House of Burgesses in 1660, and subsequent years, and 
became the ancestress of a family of that and other names, who 
were highly respectable as soldiers, scholars, and in public affairs ; 
Elizabeth, the third daughter, married John Lewis, son of the above 
named John Lewis and Isabella Warner. ; The second John Lewis 
was prominent as a Burgess, as a Councillor, and as a citizen. (His 
sons were John, Robert, and Charles, the latter a distinguished officer 
in the French and Indian wars.) Tlic third John, who married 
Frances Fie/ding, laas the father of Warner (who married Eleanor 
Bowles, the widow of the son of Governor Gooch), Charles, and Field- 
ing. The latter was the patriotic Colonel Fielding Lewis, of Freder- 
icksburg, who rendered valuable service to the cause of independence 
in the Revolutionary War, as superintendent and owner of the 
manufactory of arms, advancing large sums out of his own abund- 
ant means to supply the soldiers of the Colonies in the darkest hour 
of their penury and distress. Lawrence Washington and Mildred 
Warner had three children, John, Augustine, and Mildred. The 
oldest of these, John, married Catherine \\'hiting, a beautiful woman 
and heiress, of Gloucester, and their daughter, Catherine Washing-

of John Lewis and Frances Fielding, i. Colonel Fielding and Cather-

generation, and remembered for years after all who knew him had 
passed away as "The Valley Lawyer." The fourth wife of John 
Lewis was Mary Anne Fontaine, the widow Armistead, her father of 
that excellent Huguenot stock, her mother a Winston, of the same 
blood as Patrick Henry, the South Carolina Prestons, and Mrs. Madi- 
son. John Lewis' fifth wife was Mildred Carter, widow of Robert 
Mercer ,i a son of the Princeton hero.^; She was a daughter of Landon 
Carter, her mother being a daughter of Colonel Lewis Willis. It is 
a noteworthy circumstance that the two first wives of John Lewis 
were granddaughters of his great aunt, Mildred Washington, by

Mansfield, 4th May, i8y6. 
Dear Doctor: 

I have been much interested in the genealogy of the Lewis family (from 
the Courier- Journal) which you sent, and find it correct, I think, except in 
one instance in which it makes Colonel Fielding .Lewis, of Fredericksburg, 
and his brother the children of the second John Lewis, of "Warner Hall," 
and Elizabeth, daughter of ' ' Speaker " Augustine Warner. They were the 
sons of the third John Lewis, of "Warner Hall," and Frances Fielding, a 
kinswoman of Henry Fielding, of England, hence the name of Fielding in 
the Lewis family. Their children were : (i) Warner, who inherited "Warner 
Hall," the father of Colonel Fielding Lewis, of " Weyanoke, " whose portrait 
(by request) hangs in the Agricultural Hall in Richmond. He was the first 
man who used lime and peas in improving lands in Virginia. (2) Fielding 
Lewis, of Fredericksburg, whose second wife was Betty, the sister of Wash- 
ington, and (3) Colonel Charles Lewis, of "Cedar Creek," near Port Royal, 
in Caroline County, Virginia (my great-grandfather), from whom are descended 
the Lewis' of Essex and Caroline. This Charles Lewis is mentioned in the 
genealogy you sent as a distinguished officer in the French and Indian wars. 
I have a journal which he kept of those times. He married Lucy, daughter 
of Colonel John Taliaferro, of "Snow Creek," near Fredericksburg. Their 
children were : (i) Doctor John Taliaferro Lewis, a distinguished graduate of 
Edinburgh Universitj', and settled at "Mulberry Green," near Brandy-Sta- 
tion, Culpeper County, Virginia. (2) Charles Augustine Lewis, Millwood, 
Caroline County, Virginia. He was a brave man, and raised and commanded 
a cavalry company in the War of 18 12. He married a Miss Battaile, of 
Caroline, and left issue. (3) Mary Warner Lewis, a lady of "rare beauty 
and many attractions." She married, first, Philip Lightfoot, of "Sandy 
Point," on James River. They resided at "Cedar Creek," and had an only 
son, the late Philip Lightfoot, of Port Royal. She, secondly, married Doctor 
John Bankhead, of Caroline, a nephew of President James Monroe and a 
graduate of Edinburgh University, and from these marriages have descended 
the Lightfoots and Bankheads of Caroline and Orange. 

Doctor John Taliaferro Lewis, son of Colonel Charles Lewis and Lucy 
Lewis, nee Taliaferro, married, 3d December, 1782, Susanna, daughter of 
Colonel Francis Waring, of Goldsberry, St. Ann's Parish, Essex County, 
Virginia, and Lucy Waring, nee Cocke, daughter of Secretary William Cocke, 
of the King's Council, and his wife, Elizabeth Catesby, niece of Mark

English language.

LITTLEPAGE. 

The first of the family in the Colony of which we have informa- 
tion was Richard Littlepage, of New Kent, who received land there 
in 1660. He was Sheriff, Vestryman, etc., and died April 20, 168S. 
He left a son Richard, and probably other children, as the name 
spread rapidly to Henrico, King William, Hanover, and as far off 
as Augusta County. 

The second Richard married Frances , and died March 

20, 1 7 17. He had numerous children, among them Elizabeth, born 
1703; Travis, 1705; Alice, 1707; Richard, 1709; James, 1714; 
John, 1714; Judith, 1715 ; Susanna, 1717 ; William, who married 
Sarah, daughter of Nicholas Meriwether and granddaughter of the 
first Nicholas Meriwether, of New Kent County ; also another son, 
Edmund, who waS Justice in King William County, 1732. His son, 
Colonel James Littlepage, married Eliza Lewis, daughter of Zachary

and Mary (Waller) Lewis, and left many descendants, among them 
General Lewis Littlepage, one of the most interesting and romantic 
characters in modern history. He spent many years in Europe 
attached to various Courts, and was one of the reputed favorites of 
Catherine of Russia, and the friend of Stanislaus, King of Poland. Of 
the same family came Thomas Littlepage, Justice in King William 
County, 1793 ; James Littlepage, in Colonel George Washington's 
Company, 1757, and Justice in King William County, 1782, brother 
of General Lewis Littlepage ; Hardin Littlepage, Justice of King

Littlepage, who married Caroline Baker EUett, the daughter of 
William Ellett and Nancy Baker, and whose other sons, W. T. 
and Lewis L. Littlepage, are well-known citizens of New Kent and 
King William counties, and Major John C. Littlepage, in the United 
States Treasury Department at Washington. 

Extensive correspondence with living members of this interesting 
family fails to elicit any connected data, and the history is reluc- 
tantly left thus incomplete.

LYNE. 

There appears to have been an ancient family of this name living 
in Gloucestershire, England, in the seventeenth century. Henry 
Lyne died at Little Compton, 1743, aged 65. His wife was Catherine 

, and he had a son, Thomas, who married Jane Mansel. 

There was also a John Lyne, at Swal Cliffe, O.xford, in 1645, whose 
father was Mathew Lyne, born about 1620, who married Elizabeth 

. We also find the name in Ireland about 1650, EUeene 

Lyne being one of the "forfeiting proprietors" in the Barony of 
Iveragh, and Lieutenant Laughlin Lyne was, in 1649, one of the 
"forty-nine officers " in the wars of Ireland under Charles I. 

Two brothers, William and Henry Lyne, emigrated from Bristol, 
England, and settled first in Granville County, North Carolina. 
Removed thence to Virginia about 1725.

MONCURE. 

This distinguished family has filled a conspicuous place in the 
history of Virginia. The first of the name in the Colony was ; 

1. John Moncure.' Minister of the Protestant Episcopal Church. Born at 

Kincardine, Scotland, and ordained in 1737 by the Bishop of 
London. He married Frances, daughter of Doctor Gustavus 
Brown (see Brown E.xcursus), and on coming to America 
located in Stafford County, Virginia, where he was rector of 
Acquia Church for twenty-six years, and was buried under 
the chancel. He had a son, John (2). 

2. John Moncure." Boni at "Clermont," 1746. His Godfathers were 

George Mercer and George Mason, of Gunston Hall. He 
married, in 1770, Ann Conway (see Conway Excursus), and

Lucy Ann Gatewood (see Byrd and Gatewood Excursus), 
born September 1807 ; died 1895. His daughter, Cas- 
sandra Oliver, married William Henry Lyne (see Edwards' 
Genealogy). 

MORANCY. 

The Morancys claim descent from the noted French family of 
Montmorency. Compelled to flee the country to escape the horrors 
of the French Revolution, they found refuge in the Island of St. 
Domingo, and dropped the prefix "Mont," owing to the e.xtreme 
hostility to all titles of nobility. 

With the remnant of their scattered fortunes, Jean Francois 
Morancy and a brother acquired property in the island and became 
extensive planters and slave owners. 

85 



OLD FAMILIES. 



Jean Francois Morancy was married in St. Domingo to Made- 
moiselle Honorine Molinery, a granddaughter of Madam Bouligny, 
the ceremony being performed by Father Pierre. From this 
marriage there were si.x children, Joseph, Victoire, Melanie, Honore, 
Pierre, Thadeus, and Emile. Their tranquillity was of short dura- 
tion, however, as the insurrection of the slaves in St. Domingo was, 
if possible, worse than the Revolution in France from which they 
had escaped. 

At the beginning of the Revolution in St. Domingo the Morancys 
took refuge in the town of Aux Cayes, where the mother died of 
yellow fever. Soon after Jean Francois Morancy, his brother, and 
his wife's brother, with other members of the family, were killed by 
the negroes when the town was captured and sacked. 

Three of the children, Victoire, aged thirteen, Honore Pierre, 
about ten, and Emile, five years of age, were saved by a servant 
belonging to the family, and finally reached the United States, land- 
ing at Charleston, South Carolina, from whence they were sent to 
Baltimore. Influential friends received them there, and the history 
of their escape and description of their confiscated property in the 
Island of St. Domingo, comprising several valuable plantations, was 
authenticated and forwarded to the French Government, which 
recognized their claim and allowed them an indemnity for many 
years. 

Honore Pierre, the oldest son, was taken in charge by the Abbe 
Mercier, and educated at St. Mary's College, Emmettsburg, Mary- 
land. Madam LePeltier, a refugee from France, assumed the 
care of Victoire and Emile, and about a year afterwards some rela- 
tions or friends took Victoire to the Island of Margalanti, in the 
West Indies, where she grew up, married, went to France, and died 
there. Madam LePeltier was recalled to France, and Emile entered 
the family of Mrs. Harper, a daughter of Charles Carroll, of Carroll- 
ton, and was educated with her son, Charles Harper, at Emmetts- 
burg, under the patronage of Charles Carroll, who furnished the 
means for his graduation in the profession of medicine. 

Honore Pierre's name was changed to Honore Perigny, in grati- 
tude to Madam LePeltier, whose family name was Perigny. After 
the death of the Abbe Mercier, Honore Perigny finished his educa-

tion, and was Professor of French, Greek, and Latin in the college 
at Natchez, Mississippi, until 1818, when on the 16th of July of that 
year he was married. He afterwards moved to Louisiana, where he 
entered large tracts of land, and at the breaking out of the Civil War 
was one of the wealthiest and most prominent planters in that State. 
He held many public offices, and died at the advanced age of eighty- 
six in 188 1. When in the Legislature he named the Parish of 
Carroll in honor of his benefactor, Charles Carroll. 

His son, Louis Morancy, married Agnes Morancy, a daughter of 
Joseph Anderson and Tunstella Kinkead, who was a daughter of 
Anne Quarles and Archibald Kinkead. 

Emile Morancy, above referred to, married Agnes Kinkead, a 
sister of Tunstella, and besides these two intermarriages of the 
Quarles' and Morancys, two of Honore Perigny Morancy's grandsons, 
Thomas and Honore Jackson, married two of the descendants of the 
Quarles', whose ancestor was Tunstal Quarles, who married Susannah, 
a daughter of Ambrose Edwards. 



NEALE. 

The first record of this family in the Colony is dated January 14, 
1630, when John Neale, Gent., of Accomac County, received 
assignment of a lease for fifty acres of land from Lyonel Roulston, 
"to his loveing friend, John Neale." John Neale carried on a 
large business as a merchant on the Eastern Shore, and in a deposi- 
tion made by him in 1636 he stated that he was then forty years old. 
This would fix his birth about 1596. His wife was EHzabeth, sup- 
posed to be the daughter of Henry Southey, of Rempton, Somerset- 
shire, England, and a sister of Anne, the wife of Nathaniel Littleton. 
John Neale was Vestryman, 1636, and Commissioner (Justice) and 
Burgess, 1639, and a candidate for Sheriff in 1638. He was also 
appointed Commander of forces for protection against the Indians. 
He died about December, 1644, and his widow subsequently married 
David Dale and removed to York County. John Neale left no will 
of record in Accomac. He sold his plantation prior to his death 
and transferred his personalty to Anne Littleton, wife and attorney 
of Colonel Nathaniel Littleton, on the 17th of November, 1644. 

87 



OLD FAMILIES. 



On the following day the same property was conveyed to Margaret 
Neale, his daughter. 

Margaret Neale, who was but a child at her father's death, seems 
to have been the only offspring of John Neale and Elizabeth 
Southey ; but there is reason to believe that John Neale had been 
previously married, as there is mention in the records of a younger 
John and a Pearce Neale, also Henry Neale, who died about 1670, and 
Captain James Neale, the latter being a resident of Maryland. The 
younger John Neale was evidently a graceless young scamp, as 
he was sent to Jamestown charged with various offenses. It does 
not appear in the records that he was re'^^^d to the other John 
Neale, and it may be he was the John Neale who arrived in the 
Colony in 1635, according to " Hotten's List of Emigrants." 

On the 1 8th of July, 1654, Lieutenant William Waters, Gent., 
was appointed guardian of Margaret Neale, her mother being lately"" 
deceased. It appears from old letters that John Pennell, of London, 
advanced William Waters seven pounds sterling to purchase clothes, 
and sent him to Virginia at the request of his mother, and that 
William Waters was a cousin of Captain James Neale, of Maryland. 
The latter wrote to his Cousin Robins from Maryland, May 2, 1643, 
referring to the payment of the debt to John Pennell, and his 
letters indicate his intelligence and integrity. 

«- Captain James Neale, Admiral Royal Navy, before coming to Mary- 
land in 1638, ," had lived divers years in Spain and Portugal, and like- 
wise was there employed by His Majesty of Great Britain (Charles I), 
and His Royal Highness the Duke of Yorke in several Emergent 
affairs, as by Commissions herewith presented may Appear." His 
wife was Anne, and their daughter, Henrietta Maria, who was born 
while her father was in foreign service, was named for the Queen of 
Charles I, to whom her mother had been maid of honor. On the 
execution of Charles I, he directed that rings should be presented to 
his most faithful friends, and that received by Anne Neale is still 
preserved by one of her Maryland descendants. 

Henrietta Maria Neale married, first, Richard Bennett, and, 
second. Governor Philemon Lloyd, Master of "Wye House." 
She left numerous descendants, among them some of the most noted 
people in Maryland and Virginia.

OLD FAMILIES. 



Richard Bennett was the son of Richard Bennett, the nephew of a 
weahhy London merchant, who resided for a time at Delft, Holland, 
as Deputy Governor of the English merchants, and was largely 
engaged in the Virginia trade. He came over in 1622, and held 
many high positions, and was Governor of the Colony. His wife 
was Mary Anne Utie/ His son Richard, who married Henrietta 
Maria Neale, was drowned, but left a son Richard, who was referred 
to as "the richest man in the Colonies." His tomb, with the 
Bennett Arms (the Bennetts were of the same family as Lord Arling- 
ton), is at Bennett's Point, Maryland. He erected a tomb to his 
mother's memory, inscribed as follows : 

HENRIETTA MARIA LLOYD. 

' ' Shee who now takes her Rest within this Tomb 
Had Rachel's Face and Leah's fruitful Womb, 
Abigail's wisdom, Lydia's Faithful Heart ^' 
With Martha's care and Mary's Better part." 

Who died the 21st day of May 

Anno Dom 1697 aged 50 years 

Months, 23 days.

To whose memory Richard Bennett dedicates this Tomb. 



Captain James Neale left three other children, all born prior to 
his coming to America : James, who married and settled on the 
Western Shore of Maryland, Anthony, and Dorothy, who married a 
Taney, the ancestors of Chief Justice Taney. . The next record of 
the Neales is found in Northumberland County, Virginia, where 
Christopher Neale was appointed Justice by King William HI, 1699, 
and was Burgess from 16S5 to 1719. Richard Neale was Burgess, ^.„^ 
17 1 3, and also Member of Quorum. Captain Charles Neale was 
vestryman, St. Stephen's Parish, 1712, and Burgess, 1702-1714. 
Mathew Neale, vestryman, 177S. 

Samuel Neale married, June 29, 1699, Elizabeth Exeter, in Eliza- 
beth City County. / 

In Richmond City County the records show will of Charles ,y 
Neale, January 27, 1718, wife not mentioned byname. Left sundry 
items to his son, Charles Neale, and balance of estate t^^ *t^is wife and 
three children. There are several deeds from 'il^aniel Neale to

Augustine Jennings in September, 1737, and Richard Neale and 
Katherine Neale, his wife, deed various tracts of land, 1754 to 1774. 
His will, August 21, 1800, mentions grandson Richard Neale Calliss 
and daughter Margaret, wife of Henry Garnett, Judith Mathews, 
Elizabeth Calliss, Susannah Bowlere, married daughters, and Hannah 
Shapleigh, unmarried. Rodham Neale deed to Moore Fauntleroy, June

Neale to son Augustine, November 24, 1820, and his will to daughter 
Lucy Neale and others, April 6, 1851. Power of Attorney to Austin 
Neale from James Smith, January 17, 1819. The Neales and Beck- 
withs are mentioned among the principal families in Lunenburg 
Parish in the early part of eighteenth century by Bishop Meade. 

-. From Richmond City County the Neales rapidly spread into 
Loudon, Prince William, Westmoreland, King William, and other 
counties. One branch located in the Kanawha Valley and inter- 
married with the Steenbergens, Crouches, Jacksons (the parents of 
General Stonewall), and others. (Miss Ellen Steenbergen Neale, of 
Ben Lomond, West Virginia, is compiling data for this branch of the 
family.) In the records of William and Mary College in 1765 a Mr. 
Neale, of King William County, is mentioned as being nominated 
for collector of rents, but was not elected. Bernard Neale, of King 
William, gave a power of attorney to his brother, Richard Neale, 
April 2, 1792, stating that he was going to move to North Carolina. 
Francis Neale deed to William Newman, March 20, 1795 ; John 
Turner Neale deed to Reuben Dugar, February 3, 1801 ; Bernard

NEWMAN. 

This family is of Scotch-Irish extraction, and settled in Virginia 
in the early part of the eighteenth century, afterwards moving to 
North Carolina. There was a Newman, whose first name is lost, 
who Hved in Lincoln County, North Carolina, about 1775, whose 

wife was Rebecca , and who had a son Jonathan and a 

daughter Rachel. After the death of her husband Rebecca New- 
man moved to York District, South Carolina, with her children. 
On the 29th of October, 1795, articles of agreement were entered 
into between Mathew Black, of York District, South Carolina, and 

Jonathan Newman, of Lincoln County, North Carolina, by which

Jonathan Newman subsequently came into possession of a farm in 
the latter place, which he transferred to William McElwee, from 
whom it descended to McElwee's son-in-law, Alexander G^-lIoway, 
whose daughter Martha Plaxco now owns and lives thereon. 

There lived in the County Tyrone, Ireland, a William McElwee 
who had two sons, David and William. The latter (William) emi- 
grated to America about 1750, when about thirty-two years of 
age, and settled first in Pennsylvania, where he married Janet 
Black. He moved thence to Virginia and afterwards to York District, 
South Carolina, locating on Clarke's Fork, near the battle-ground 
of King's Mountain. His son William was a distinguished soldier 
in the Revolutionary War under General Marion, participated 
in many engagements, and was a noted man in other respects. 
His tombstone records his services as well as his fine traits of 
character, and an account of some of his exploits has been 
published. He was born February, 1761, died November, 1854; 
married Rachel Newman, above referred to, and left numerous 
descendants ; and his sister Elizabeth married Jonathan Newman, 
the brother of his wife Rachel Newman. 

Jonathan Newman moved to Monroe County about 1807, where he 
died in 1844. Of his children, Jonathan, junior, went to Texas, and 
in 1 849 ' ' was living on his fine ranch, three miles square, on the Brazos 
River." There were also three daughters and another son, Josiah. 

Josiah Newman was born November 17, 1806, in York District. 
South Carolina, and died November 6, 1893, in Simpson County, 
Kentucky. He married Edith Manion, who was born January 26, 
181 1, and died April 23, 1877. She was the daughter of Ambrose 
Manion, born in Chester District, South Carolina, 1785, and died 
1837, whose wife was Pheriba Austin, the daughter of Charles 
Austin, who was born in Virginia and left an orphan ; ran away at 
the age of fifteen to Wake County, North Carolina, where he grew 
up, married a Miss Bunch, and raised a large family. Edith 

Manion's paternal grandparents were Ambrose Manion and 

Halsell, of South Carolina. Josiah Newman had issue, eleven 
children, of whom : 

William Houston Newman was born in Monroe County. Ken- 
tucky, February 8, 1831. Married, October 30, 1856, Elizabeth

been since that time, except for a short period during the war, in 
the wholesale grocery business, in which he has gained an enviable 
reputation for sound judgment and probity, and made an eminent 
success. They had three children : Elizabeth, who married John 
Atwood Crutcher, of Nicholasville, Kentucky ; Sanford Keith, who 
died August 13, 1895, at the age of thirty, and just at the beginning 
of a most promising career, beloved and regretted by all who

\ 



PEMBERTON. ■<. 

Bishop Meade attributed the American origin of the family to the 
Huguenot immigration of 1700. The name was spelled Pembreton 
in the early days, which suggests a Breton ancestry. 

Richard Pemberton and Elizabeth, his wife, were residents of 
King William Parish in Virginia, and the register there shows the 
births of their children as follows: Michael, born January 14, 1745 ; 
William, born January 30, 174S ; and Martha, born October 17, 
1752. 

Wilson Coleman Pemberton, who married Wealthean Edwards, 
was born about 1750. Thomas Pemberton was a Captain in the 
Virginia State Line, Revolutionary War, and the Confederate Gen- 
eral John C. Pemberton was of this famil}'. 

The King William Pembertons were noted for their education 
and wealth. They owned fine properties and were substantial and 
highly regarded citizens. The family is now widely scattered 
through the South and West. 

PEYTON. 

Robert Peyton, of Virginia, was the son of Thomas Peyton and 
Elizabeth, daughter of Sir William Yelverton, of Rougham in 
Norfolk. Thomas Peyton died in 1683, leaving four sons, William, 
of Dublin ; Charles, of Grimston ; Thomas and Robert, who settled 
in Virginia. Thomas Peyton, the older, was descended from a long 
line of Peytons dating back to the time of William the Conqueror. 
The pedigree may be found in Burke's Extinct and Dormant Baron- 
etcies, pages 408, 409, and 410. 

When Sir John Peyton died in 1772 without issue, the male 
descendants of Robert Peyton, of Virginia, were entitled to the 
Baronetage, but it appears that they failed to qualify, and he was 
succeeded by Sir Yelverton Peyton, of the English line, a half- 
brother of Sir John, who died on the i8th of October, 181S, when 
the Baronetage is presumed to have expired.

OLD FAMILIES. 



POLLARD. 

This family appears to have settled first in King and Queen 
County, Virginia, in the early part of the eighteenth century, and 
its history includes many distinguished names, among them the old 
clerks of King and Queen, King William, and Hanover counties. 
Intermarried with the Dandridges, Spotswoods, Edwards', etc., and 
their descendants have spread over the land. Robert Pollard was 
Clerk of King William County for about forty years, and it was 
probably his son, George Butler Pollard, who married Mary Elizabeth 
Edwards. The old seat of the family in King William County was 
at "Mount Zoar." 

QUARLES. 

This is an old family in Virginia, but its origin appears to be 
somewhat obscure. There are frequent references to the name in 
the records of the last century, but so far the name of the emigrant 
has not developed. Several of the name were in the Revolutionary 
War. James Quarles was Paymaster-General, and was most proba- 
bly the father of Tunstal Quarles, senior, sometimes known as Colonel 
John Tunstal Quarles, who married Susannah Edwards, and who 
was born in King William County prior to 1760. How he received 
his title is not known. There was a John Quarles an officer in the 
Revolutionary War, and several others of the name fought for 
independence. Tunstal Quarles owned large tracts of land in 
various parts of Kentucky, but the records show they were all by 
purchase or assignment, and not for military service. General 
James Quarles and Captain Henry Quarles also received grants for 
military service, and Tunstal Quarles came into possession of some 
of their land. He also acquired the land granted to Captain 
Bernard Lipscomb, by purchase. 

The family which settled in the Colony has spread all over the 
Southwest, and has produced many eminent representatives. 

It is noted as a peculiar coincidence that the two great tariff 
reformers — Roger Quarles Mills, of Te.xas, and William Lyne 
Wilson, of West Virginia, the fathers of the "Mills" and "Wilson" 
tariff bills — are both connected with the families in this record. 

96 



OLD FAMILIES. 



Among the public men in the Quarles family may be mentioned 
one who participated largely in the development of the Common- 
wealth of Kentucky, and whose record is preserved here. 

Judge Tunstal Quarles was the son of Tunstal Quarles and 
Susannah Edwards. He was born in Virginia about 1770, and 
moved with his parents to Kentucky, where they settled in Wood- 
ford County about 1790. In 1796 he was a member of the Ken- 
tucky House of Representatives from Woodford County. He 
afterwards removed to Pulaski, from which county he was sent to 
the legislature in 181 1 and 1812. He represented his district in the 
National House of Representatives, 1817-20, was elected Speaker 
of the Kentucky House of Representatives in 1828. He was an 
Elector in 1829, and voted for Andrew Jackson for President, and 
was State Senator in 1S40. While in Congress he pronounced an 
eulogy on the death of his friend, David Walker, which attracted 
attention, and was followed by Henry Clay and others, who were in 
Congress at that time. He armed and equipped at his own expense 
and commanded a company in the War of 18 12. While directing 
the building of fortifications he was injured by a falling tree, for 
which injury he was long afterwards allowed a pension. He was 
Circuit Judge by appointment of the Governor, and was a lawyer 
of ability. He died November 26, 1856, at Somerset, Kentucky, 
where he was buried. His public service extended over a period of 
fifty years or more. 

As an evidence of his honor and integrity, a deed on record in 
Franklin County, Kentucky, December 12, 1820, recites that in his 
judgment the property devised to his brother Ambrose by his father's 
will was not in fair proportion, and in "justice to himself and his 
own feelings" he conveyed to his brother Ambrose all his land in 
Woodford (then Franklin) County ' ' in order to better his brother's 
situation."

TALIAFERRO. 

"It has been ascertained by research that the name Taliaferro 
originated in a circumstance. It is said that the founder of the 
family came over from Normandy with William the Conqueror, and 
aided him in his conquest. After the Battle of Hastings, where 
William gained a great victory, in his enthusiasm and admiration of 
this man's conduct he said to him 'Taliaferro.' The Latin is a 
very abbreviated language, a great many words are understood or 
supplied, and his meaning was, you have achieved, 'Talia' such 
things or so much, ' Ferro ' by the iron or the weapons of iron. 
When the people were ordered by their sovereign to assume sur- 
names, and were casting about for suitable names, many taking 
names from their occupation, as Miller, Carter, etc., this motto 
was brought out as a name. It does not seem to have come into 
use fully until planted on American soil, where it has increased and 
spread like a 'green bay tree.' "

ADDENDA. 



Peyton. — The manuscript of nearly every family history referred 
to herein was submitted to some living member of each particular 
branch, and every effort made to secure accuracy. Since the book 
was printed a letter received from Reverend Horace E. Hayden, of 
''■Vilkesbarre, Pennsylvania, probably the most accomplished gene- 
alogist in America, indicates that the descendants of Robert Peyton 
in Virginia succeeded to the title of Sir John, who died without issue 
in 1772, but the Revolutionary War cancelled all such pretensions. 
From the same authority it is learned that Thomas Peyton, the 
elder, left five sons, but Thomas was never in Virginia. 

Freeman. — George Freeman, born 1649, patented lands in Hen- 
rico County, Virginia. He left, among other children, George, whose 
will, probated February 2, 1735, mentions wife Jane, daughters Han- 
nah and Alice, and sons Joseph, Holman, and John. The latter, 
John Freeman, married Abigail Ballinger, of Goochland County, 
and had issue John Freeman, who married Sarah Willis. Sec Free 
man Family. 

Hill. — There was a William Hill who settled in Middlesex 
County and died there February 12, 1669. He was the father of 

William and Thomas. The latter married Anne , who died 

January 15, 1726, and had issue, William, born July 20, 1684, and 
married September 7, 17 10, Frances, daughter of William and 
Dorothy Needles. They had numerous children, among them Will- 
iam, Richard, Russell, and Needles, the father of Humphrey. Sec 
Hill Family. From Christ Cliurch Register, Middlesex County. 

Neale. — Bernard Neale, who went to North Carolina in 1792, 
from King William, afterwards settled near Shelbyville, Kentucky. 
He married Elizabeth Christian, a cousin of Roger Sherman, one of 
the signers of the Declaration of Independence. Christian County, 
Kentucky, was named for her brother, Colonel William Christian. 
Their children were Alfred, Bernard, Palmer, Richard. Edward, 
Thomas, Mary Ellen, Joan, and Eliza. Alfred married Lucy Roberts 
and had issue, Edward, Elizabeth, John H., George, Richard, and 
Bernard, who lives in Marshall County, Kentucky, and has been a 
member of Kentucky Legislature. See Neale Family. 

The Claiborne genealogy is taken largely from O'Hart's Irish 
Pedigrees.
