The Winn Family of Fluvanna. 

The numerous Winnr, whose names 
adorn the Fluvanna records are all 
descendants of John Winn of Han- 
over, through three of his sons who 
acquired land in Fluvanna. These 
three sons were: 

1. Hezekiah Winn. 

2. John Winn, Jr. 

3. Thomas Winn. 

Their father, sometimes borne as 
Capt. John Winn, appears frequently 
in the records of St. Paul's Parish, 
Hanover. He died about 1798, inter- 
state, leaving a considerable estate 
including property in Goochland coun 
ty; widow Mary, probably nee Pled- 
ger, and several children, whose 
names are obtained from a paper 
Iravn up and signed by Chief Justic. 
John Marshall, concerning the distri- 
bution of the estate of the said John 
Winn. (That paper was long in the 
possession of the late Dr. John F. 
Winn, of Fluvanna and Richmond; it 
was lent to a relative who died before 
it has been returned, and has not 
;ince been recovered. I have person- 
illy seen it, and copied the names of 
^he children. B. L. A.) Of the three 
ions represented in Fluvanna, the 
>ldest was probably: 

1. Hezekiah Winn. He married 
dhristjanna Bowles, daughter o' 
Thomas Bowles of Hanover county 
md they had the following children: 

4. John Bowles Winn. He married 
'is cousin No. 20, Frances Winn, an i 
he youngest of their three children 
vas born about 1820. In 1821, one 
T. B. Winn, of Virginia, on behalf o' 

he Colonization Society sailed from 
Norfolk in the Brig ' Nautilus" fo; 
Freetown, Africa, and died there (Me- 
Master EV.-567). The probability that 
it was this J. B. Winn is supported 
iy the fact that within a year or two 
ifter this, his wife was a widow and 
residing in Albemarle, where she 
narried again. 

5. Minor Wi'nn: Fved in Fluvanna, 
married Elizabeth Gardner Anderson, 
laughter of Rev. George Anderson 

and his wife Susan Mimms. Issue 

6. Thomas Winn, Jr., (his uncle. 
No. 3. Thomas Winn being sr.) Be- 
fore 1811 he removed to Kentucky, 
vhere he died in 1862. He married 
n IS 11 In Woodford county Maria 
3ull Cooke daughter of John Cooke 
md his second wife Catherine Bur- 
on Mourse. Issue below. 

2. John Winn jr. had before the 
formation of the county purchased 
"50 acres of land on Bremo Creek; he 
oerhaps never resided there himself, 
is he died in Hanover county. He 
was born December 23, 1751; married 
July 8, 1773, Mary Bowles of Han- 
over. Fortunately an old Bible re- 
mains in which are recorded the 
names of their children, as follows:

Depp, of Kentucky, but originally of 
Virginia; and by this marriage had 
seven more children. He was for 
many years Clerk of Dover Baptist 
Church, of which he was an organiz-

Fluvanna Cdunty 
And Its People 

Some Notes by Rev. B. L. Ancell 

M A., D. P. 

From the earliest years of Gooch- 
land county, George Payne was a 
prominent citizen. As early as 1729 
he was a justice of the peace, later 
becoming sheriff, and holding office 
in the military organization of the 
county. He married Mary Woodson, 
daughter of Robert Woodson, of 
Henrico county, and his wife, Eliza- 
beth Ferris. From George Payne 
and Mary Woodson are descended 
most of the Paynes who resided ear- 
ly in Goochland and adjoining coun- 
ties, and have since spread through- 
out the length and breadth of the 
United States. 

Among their four sons was George 
Payne, Jr., who also held the office 
of sheriff of Goochland county. He 
married Judith Burton. They had 
several children, among them was 

progenitor of most of the Paynes 
of Fluvanna. In 1784 he inherited 
from his father a large tract of land 
on Cunningham Creek in Fluvanna, 
which his father had purchased a 
short time before. He was born 
about 1751; married in Goochland, 
December 22, 1773, Margaret Syd- 
enham Morton, born April 30, 1756, 
died May 23, 1840. She was daugh- 
ter of Joseph Morton, of James City 
county; son of John Morton, of 
Westmoreland county, and wife, 
Mary Mountjoy (daughter of Alvin 
Mountjoy and his wife, Mary Lane). 
Joseph Morton married twice; his 
second wife, the mother of Robert 
Burton Payne's wife, was Margaret 
Beckwith, daughter of Sir Marma- 
duke Beckwith, of Richmond county, 
immigrant; he was a son of Sir 
Roger Beckwith, of Aldborough, 
Yorkshire, England, and [lis wife, 
Elizabeth Jennings, who was a sis- 
ter of Edmund Jennings, famous in 
Virginia history. Sir Marmaduke 
Beckwith married Eliza Brocken- 
brought, daughter of William Brock- 
enbrough, of Richmond county, 

16. Eliza B. Payne, born and died 
in 1815. 

4. Molly Jordan Payne and he- 
second husband, Captain George 
Holman, had, with perhaps others: 

a. Susan Brockenbrough Holman, 
married before December, 1837,

ham county, son of Thomas Miller 

! wife, Constance Massie (daugh- 
ter of Colonel Nathaniel Massie and 
wife, Betsy Watkins). They had: 
(1) George Holman Miller, (2) Man- 
Miller, (3) Susan Miller. After her 
death J. Fred. Miller married (sec- 
ond) Louisa Guerrant and had other

William Armistead, of Goochland 
and Fluvanna counties; had, with 
perhaps others, (1) Emily Armistead, 
married in 1853 Carter Braxton 
Page, (2) Georgeianna Armistead, 
(3) Mary Elizabeth Armistead. 

c. George Payne Holman, M. D., 
of Spring Garden, near Bremo Bluff, 
which plantation was deeded to him 
by his parents on December 30, 1837, 
by which time he was presumably of 
age. Hie married Martha Finch 
Scruggs, of Buckingham county, and 
had, with perhaps others, (1) Susan 
Brockenbrough Holman, married 
Captain Joseph M. Gardner, and had 
issue; (2) a daughter, who married 
a Mr. Myers and lived in West Vir- 
ginia, among whose children* was 
George Holman Myers, who married 
Eliza S. Ficklin, daughter of James 
Bruce Ficklin and wife, Augusta S. 
Pannill; (3) William Henry Holman, 
of Bremo Bluff, captain in C. S. A., 
and later judge of Fluvanna county 

court. He married (first) 

Gait, and (second) Anne Harrison

liam Gait, of Fluvanna, and his wife, 
Mary Bell Taylor, of Richmond. By 
his second marriage he had several 
children. Mrs. Holman resides at 
the old Holman home at Bremo Bluff. 
Few men ever passed through life 
more beloved by his friends, or more 
universally respected, than Judge 

5. Margaret Sydenham Payne and

15. Susan Mims Payne and Jere- 
miah Cleveland. A list of their chil- 
dren has already been published un- 
der the Tilman-Moon family sketch. 
Dr. Ancell writes: "To my great re- 
gret, my wallet of Payne family ge- 
nealogy got into a parcel sent to Shan- 
ghai, and my efforts to get it back 
so far have been vain. So I must give 
up the Paynes for awhile, but will take 
them up again later on I hope." 


(Dr. Ancell will be very glad if those 
of Omohundro descent will send him 
whatever material they can to be used 
in the separation of a book on this 
family's history. He wants dates, full 
names, places of residence, etc. His 
address is: 20 Minghong Road, Shang- 
hai, China, better postage, 5c. — Ed.) 

Richard Omohundro settled in Flu- 
vanna (then Albemarle) county be- 
fore the Revolutionary War (v. D. B. 
6:426, and other records). His large 
family was the presage of an almost 
innumerable progeny that has sprung 
from him; a progeny that has spread 
widely and has through a century 
and a half maintained certain well- 
marked characteristics, both physical 

and temperamental. They have been 
people of character, good citizens. 

This first Richard of Fluvanna 
served as an ensign (a commissioned 
officer) in the Revolution, and was 
later sheriff of the county. His home 
was about a mile and a half north 
of Bremo Bluff, between the 
branches of the creek (called Spring 
Garden Creek) that enters James 
River a few hundred yards east of 
the Bremo station. His wife was 
Elizabeth Muse, and I have been told 
by one of her granddaughters that 
she was from Northumberland coun- 
ty, Va. Mr. Malvern H. Omohundro, 
who has been interested in tracing 
the family, thinks that Richard came 
from Westmoreland county, where 
there has been since very early Co- 
lonial times a line of Richard Omo- 
hundros, "of the forest of Nominie." 
By the middle of the eighteenth cen- 
tury a branch of that family had 
NMnd to Northumberland county, 
mad I suggest that he also, as well 
a* Ms wife, came from that county. 
Tfcie «aaid probably be ascertained. 
Both Richard and his wife are buried 
*t the old home place, but without 
tombstones. They had, with others 
who died young, the following-named 
nine children, whose order of birth, 
however, is not certain. For the 
sons, I follow approximately the or- 
der of their marriages. 

1. John Omohundro. He settled 
in the northern part of Fluvanna, 
near Bybee's Cross Roads, and ac- 
cumulated a considerable estate; as 
did indeed all the brothers. He mar- 
ried in Louisa county, February 26, 
1795 (Louisa county records), Nan- 
cy Crank. Her parentage could no 
doubt be easily found in the Louisa 
records. His will is recorded in Flu- 
vanna county, Will Book 5, page 
124. A list of his children will be 
given below. He died May 28, 1845, 
and his wife survived till April 9, 

2. William Muse Omohundro, born 
August 5, 1775, died November 22, 
1846. He married February 20, 
1799, Martha Creasy (all this' from 
his family Bible). They resided for 
a time in Fluvanna county, and then 
removed to Ohio. List of children 
will be given below. 

3. Richard Omohundro, married 
Edith Seay. He purchased and re- 
sided on the fine plantation known 
as Gale Hill, on the road about two 
miles west of Columbia, which was 
sold after the Civil War to a Mr. 
Siegfried. The burying ground there 
contains the graveg of him, his wife, 
and a number of their children, and 
his tombstone shows that he was 
born April 5, 1777, died January 18, 
1860. His wife w: born January 
6, 1777, and died August 14, 1856. 

4. Thomas Washington Omohun- 
dro, who inherited the home place, 
and was prominent in the commun- 
ity, served as ensign in the Fluvanna 
militia, and in 1812 was promoted 
to be captain. He married May 24, 
1806, Polly Cowell, daughter of Wil- 
liam and Mildred (Henley) Cowell, 
of Albemarle and Fluvanna counties.' 
(William Cowell's will — see Fluvan- 
na Will Book 2:164, will dated 
1812, mentions his daughter Polly, 
wife of Thomas W. Omohundro,) 
List of children below. 

5. Allen Cocke Omohundro, mar- 
ried Miss Boatwright of Buckingham 
county, named by one of his nieces 
as Eliza Ann, but appears in a toun- 
ty record as Jane. They resided for 
some time in Buckingham, across the 
river from Scottsville. List of chil- 
dren below.

in Fluvanna, January 10, 1823," 
Howell Lewis, and had, with perhaps 
others, George Kendall Lewis, named!] 
in 1849 in will of his grandmother; 
and Mary Virginia Lewis, who mar- I 
ried before 1849 Augustus M. Hamil- 
ton, and had by 1862 five daughters 
and a son, Hancock Lee Hamilton, 
born before 1849. 

28. Hancock Lee, who had before 
1862 daughters, Charlotte, Margaret, 
Mary, and Julia, all unmarried in 

One of the above Lee sons had a 
son, James Kendall Lee, who was 
captain in the C. S. A., and killed in 
battle in 1862. 

19. Judith Payne Woodson and 
Robert Pleasants had: 

a. Elizabeth Jane Pleasants, 

b. Samuel Fleasants, 

c. Robert A. Pleasants, 

d. Sarah Pleasants,

f. James B. Pleasants, 

g. Richard G. Pleasants. 

Of these, Elvira and James B. in 
1840 made choice of Samuel P. Col- 
lier as their guardian. The latter, 
James B., is the only one of these 
brothers and sisters of whose mar- 
riage I have record. He married, 
first, in Henrico county, April 16, 
1846, Mary Jane Blunt, her mother 
giving consent. He married, second, 
in Richmond, on Church Hill, by Rev. 
S. P. Ledoux, Mrs. Sarah (Holm) 
I McCallister, born 1824, daughter of 
Peter and Ann Holm. 

The will of Colonel Matthew 
Mountjoy Payne, named above, is of 
such interest that I will give here the 
names of those to whom he made leg- 
acies: "My brother Jonathan S. 
Payne . . . his son George Alvin 
Payne and his daughters ... his 
deceased daughter who was wife of 
Mr. Campbell . . . My niece Louise 
Ann Anderson of Tennessee, and her 
daughters . . . my niece Lucy Hill, 
and her daughter Isabella, now Mrs. 
Waddell . . . my niece Betsy Lee, 
and her niece Mary Virginia Hamil- 
ton . . . my great-nieces Betty Brad-

The Josias Payne Family. 

18. William Payne, born June 1. 

% 19. Fleming Payne, bora June 26 
1766. I am informed that he appear.' 
in Fluvanna County records, but I 
think the Fluvanna record refers to a 
later Fleming Payne. 

20. Charles Fleming Pavne, boi™ 
January 8, 1768. He married Polly 
Adams, daughter of Thomas Adams' 
bond Goochland January 12, 1788. 

21. Elizabeth Chichester Pavn° 
born November 20, 1769; said to have

Mai. Henry Bradford. 

Josias Payne and his 2nd wife Mary 
Barnett are said to have had: 

22. Ann Pavne, married Januar" 
22, 1803. Gideon Pillow: they were 
rarents of Gen. Gideon J. Pillow, C 
S. A., and others. But if this An- 
Pavne was really the daughter o'" 
Josias and his second wife, then sir 
was married when she was hardly y 
twelve years of age. I think thi r 
record is a part of the confusion tha' 
exists about the Josias Payne o f 
Goochland and he of Nashville: r 
confus'on mentioned above. 

4. John Payne and Mary Coles had 

23. John Coles Pavne. A record i- 
the Va. Historical Magazine state - 
that he married a Mis- Wilcox o' 
Canada and removed to Kentucky

social history of the nation. She hat' 
two sons by first marriage but neithy 

of them married.

Judge Todd had a distinguished 
career in the legal profession. He 
died in Frankfort February 7, 1826, 
on the very day that he had been ap- 
pointed an Associate Justice of the 

United States Supreme Court. 

26. Mary Payne, married in 1801 
Hon. John G. Jackson, of Clarksburg, 
Va., (now West Va.), an eminent law- 
yer, and a member of the Committee 
appointed in 1818 by the legislature 
'o draft plans for the University of 

27. Anne Payne, married in 1804 
Hon. Richard Cutts, M. C, from 
Maine; their grand-daughter was au- 
thor of the Life of Dolly Madison 
and it was from another grand- 
laughter that I obtained much of ttr 
information about the family of Joh:

bly eldest son, as he seems to havr 
been of age by 1791 (cf. W. & M ' 
Quarterly 22:171). He accompame:"

Thomas Norris Clark, an immigrant 

from Scotland. They removed to 
Kingston, Tennessee, where he en-

iFlnvanna November 2, 1819, Maria C. 
Allegree, who may have been this 

The foregoing list of William 
Payne's children has been compiled 
from several sources, but I suspect it 
to have errors. First, I think the date 
of birth of the daughter Sarah (Sally) 
to be inaccurate. Also, I think he had 
a son William, older than the one dat- 
ed as born in March, 1782; in fact, 
this 17S2 William may have been a 
grandson. In 1790, the first William 
of this sketch was mentioned as Wil- 
liam Payne, Sr., which term would 
hardly have been applied if the "ju- 
nior" was only eight years old. This 
could all probably be determined 
from county records-

Fluvanna County 
And Its People 

Some Notes by Rev. B. L. Ancell, 
M. A., D. D. 


The George Anderson of this 
sketch had settled in Albemarle be- 
fore the formation of Fluvanna, and 
his residence was a mile or so south- 
west of Bethel Church, where Mr. 
Joseph Underhill lives now. The 
record of his purchase was among 
those destroyed in Albemarle in 
1 1781, so the county of his original 
residence is not found recorded. But 
there are at least two' lines of evi- 
dence to indicate that he was from 
Louisa county. He married before 
1750 Frances Woodson, daughter of 
Benjamin Woodson (will 1777) and 
hise wife, Frances, born "Napier, 
daughter of Captain Robert Napier 
and his wife, Mary Perrin. (Captain 
Robert Napier was a son of the im- 
migrant, Dr. Patrick Napier, and his 
wife, Elizabeth Booth, daughter of 
Robert Booth, clerk of York county, 
and member of the House of Bur- 
gesses. Mary Perrin was daughter 
of Richard Perrin, of Henrico coun- 
ty, and his wife, Katherine Royall, 
daughter of Joseph Royall and wife, 
Katherine Banks.) 

The records of the settlement of 
George Anderson's estate begin in 
1806; though there are allusions to 
"legacies," I was unable to find a 
copy of any will. Of his children, 
[the records show seven, as follows: 
I 1. George Anderson, Jr., who be- 
came a Baptist minister. He resided 
in Fluvanna; married March 23, 
1769, Susan Mims, daughter of 
David Mims (or Mimms), of Gooch- 
land. She survived him. His will, 
dated November, 1810, was probated 
December, 1811. List of children 

2. Benjamin Anderson: First lieu- 
tenant in the Revolution, and prob- 
ably held some county office, as he 
is called "gent" in the records. He 
married (first) Judith Mimms, sis- 
ter of his brother's wife; bond 
Goochland dated January 26, 1769. 
He married (second) Sarah Johnson, 
daughter of David Johnson, of 
Louisa county; bond Louisa, dated 

November 3, 1773. 1 give below a 
list of his children by his first wife. 
The Louisa records might show those 
by his second wife, as he lived later 
in life in Louisa. 

3. Nathaniel Anderson, married 
Mary Mayo, daughter of James and 
Martha (Williamson) Mayo; bond 
Fluvanna, November 13, 1783. I 
am told that they early left the 
county, and where they lived is not 
now known. 

4. Frances Anderson, married one 
John Duncan. In 1806 they re 
their share of her father's estate. 
I hould like to have information 
about their children. 

5. Susanna Anderson, born Sep- 
tember 22, 1758. No further record. 

6. Elizabeth Dabney Anderson, 
born July 4, 1760 or 1761 (not 
clear), married Thomas Winn, bond 
dated June 6, 1780, accompanied by 
a letter of consent from her father. 
They have many descendants, who 
will appear in a sketch of the Winn 
family that will follow later. 

7. Molly Anderson, married Jo- 
seph Bunch, probably of Louisa 
county. In 1791 Joseph and Mary 
W. Bunch sell 391 acres of land in 
Fluvanna, and they probably left the 
county. Information about their 
children is desired.

Fluvanna County 
And Its People 

Some Notes by Rev. B. L. Ancell, 
M. A., D. D. 

William Bugg, resident in Fluvan- 
na in 1782 with a family of seven 
whites and two blacks, made will 
dated October 13, 1796, pr. Febru- 
ary 1, 179S. In his will are men- 
tioned the following: 

Wife Susanna. (She is twice re- 
ferred to as "my living wife," so 
was probably not his first wife.) 

Son Sherwood Bugg. (He in 1777 
witnessed a will, so was presumably 
of age; was still resident in Fluvan- 
na in 1815.) 

Daughter Elizabeth W. Creasy. 
(She had a son, William Woodson 
Creasy, who married July 27, 1796, 
Elizabeth Thomas, daughter of 

Daughter Susanna Shores, and her 
daughters, Alley and Lucy. ( She was 
wife of Thomas Shores. The daugh- 
ter Alley married April 28, 1802, 
Daniel Stone, and Lucy married 
Richard Perkins.) 

Son William C. Bugg, and his 
daughter Ann A. Bugg. (Records 
show that Win. C. Bugg had a daugh- 
ter, Nancy P. Bugg, who married 
December 20, 1802, William Kidd.) 
Daughter Ann Pettice (Pettus), 
and her daughter Rebecca. (Ann 
Bugg married John Pettus, August 
4, 1795; probably his second wife, 
as he had a daughter married in 

Son Woodson Bugg. (He mar- 
ried Rebecca Henley; bond January 
14, 1785.) 

Daughter Mary A. Starkes, and 
her daughter Nancy Starke. 

Daughter Martha W. Hendley, and 
her son William Hendley. (Martha 
Woodson Bugg married January 11, 
1792, Thomas O. Henley.) 

Daughter Sarah A. Bugg. (Sarah 
Allen Bugg married March 22, 1798, 
Joshua Jones.) 

Witnesses to above will: John Na- 
pier, Reuben Herndon, Jane S. Na- 
pier, Charlotte Napier and Dolley 

In a sketch of the Shores family, 

recently printed, the marriage of Su- 
sanna Bugg to Thomas Shores, the 
elder, was suggested. It appears 
from the above that she was the 
wife of the Thomas Shores who died 
in 1841, and that she had died and 
he married a second wife, Elizabeth, 
who survived him. The marriage 
records at Palmyra might be exam- 
ined for this second marriage. 


Samuel S. Buggs of Fluvanna and 
wife, Delilah, had a son, Wilson N. 
Bugg, born 1835, married in Rich- 
mond June 14, 1859, Virginia A. Al- 
len. I desire information about this 
Samuel Bugg and his children. 

One Samuel Bugg, living in 1750, 
had, with perhaps others: 

Son, Samuel Bugg. 

Son, John Bugg, died in Cumber- 
land County, 1750, where he had a 
plantation of 393 acres. He left a 
wife, Susanna, and four sons, John, 
Benjamin, Jesse, and Sherwood. How 
were they related to the Fluvanna 

Benjamin Seay married shortly 
before or after 1825 Polly Bugg. 
Who were her parents?
