Note:
After the death of John Lucas without "heirs lawfully begotten," the children of his brother Thomas became the reversionary legatees of their grandmother, Anne Vernon, under the terms of her will. On January 12, 1775, William Simpson and Eleanor his wife, John MARSHALL and Sarah his wife, William POWELL and Zilla his wife, and Mary Lucas, all of Fairfax County, Virginia, appointed "our loving brother Francis Lucas of Bladen County, North Carolina to be our true and lawful attorney. . ."[24] The purpose of this power of attorney is not stated therein, but there can be but little doubt that it was for the purpose of claiming their inheritance for them.

Following Parson Scott came an overflow from Germantown. In June, 1731, John Fishback took a grant of 1,028 acres at the head of a fork of two branches of Broad Run of Occoquan and a few months later, Jacob Holtzclaw surveyed 362 acres adjoining and at the head of a small branch of Goose Creek.
The comprehensive occupation of the territory beyond the grants we have named took place during the years from 1739 to 1747, while William Fairfax had responsible charge of the proprietary during the absence of Lord Fairfax. To that period belong the appearance here of such Potomac River names as: John Peyton, Charles Elwell, Nathaniel Chapman and George Byrn.

N.B. William Powell died abt 24 Feb 1787 He had his estate probated on 8 Apr 1788 in Pr. WilliamCo, Virginia. The inventory was returned to court and ordered to be recorded 6 Oct 1794. A report of setttlement was approved 4 May 1795. William's grandson, Burr Powell, said he was a man of intemperate habits, "wore a gold-laced hat, played the fiddle, and showed all the improvidence of a sailor. He gave his children but little education and often complained of a loss of property in MD through the second marriage of his mother"; but Alexandria historian Mary Crawford Powell found on record at Annapolis evidence of his having sold his property to others leaving but 100 A. which he claimed at the time of sale in 1737.

Somerset Court, Liber DT, No. 7, pp. 41-3, deed, July, 1670, from Thomas Walker to Walter Powell for the three tracts of land, "Greenfield," "Middle," and "Exchange"; see wills of Walter and William Powell in Maryland Calendar of Wills, Vol. II, p. 102, and Vol. IV, p. 76. Walter Powell was evidently not a Quaker when he came into Somerset County to reside in 1669 or 1670. We find that John Powell, son of Walter and Margaret Powell, was born at Pocomoke [Pocomoke Hundred], September 27, 1674, "and baptized ye 25 day of October next following" (Somerset Court, Liber IKL, p. 209), and that Elizabeth Powell (who was daughter of Walter Powell) was married December 22, 1683, to Hugh Tingle, "by William Traile, minister" (Ibid.). William Traile was a Presbyterian minister. Now we know that Quakers did not submit their children to "baptism," nor were they married by ordained ministers. Evidently Walter Powell and his household became "convinced" later than 1674, when his infant son, John, was baptized. The date of his "conviction" and becoming a "Friend" is not known. That his daughter, Elizabeth, was married to Hugh Tingle by a Presbyterian minister is not evidence that Walter Powell may not have become a "Friend" before that date. Parents who are "Friends" cannot be held accountable for the acts of their children any more than parents who are "non-Friends." Ladies in marrying--even gentle Quaker ladies--sometimes make choice "out of meeting"!

Note:
Hayden, in his "Virginia Genealogies," says Lucas Powell and Col. Levin Powell were brothers, and their father was William Powell, who was born in Somerset County, Maryland, but moved to Virginia, where he married Eleanor Peyton. If this is true, Lucas Powell's father must have been married three times, as we know from an old letter, written by Mrs. Rebecca E. P. Thompson Davis, of Amherst County, Virginia, who was born in 1805, and died in 1889, in which she says that her great-grandfather, Lucas Powell's father, was married to a Miss Seymore and a Miss Lucas. In this letter she does not mention Eleanor Peyton, who was, perhaps, his first wife, of whom she, his great-great-granddaughter, had never heard

Eleanor PEYTON and William POWELL were married in 1736 in Dumfries, Stafford, Virginia.
William Powell was a young Marylander of good family and property who had but recently settled in the now forgotten metropolis of Dumphries on the Potomac, whence he had married in 1736, Eleanor, the only daughter of Valentine Peyton, born at "Stony Hill" on Acquia, in old Stafford, Bugess and Colonel of County Militia of old Prince William....
William POWELL (son of William POWELL and Elizabeth "Eliza" LANE) was born about 1703 in "Greenfields", Somerset, MD. Between 1724 and 1734 he was a Ship captain in Coastal trade, MD. First known as the captain of a small vessel engaged in the coastal trade (off coast of MD). He lived "Dumphries", Prince WilliamCo, Virginia in "Dumphries", Prince WilliamCo, Virginia in 1734. , , "When William Powell, Jr. left Somerset County for Virginia is not known...He was married in 1736 to Eleanor, daughter of Col. Valentine Peyton, J.P., and Burgess of Stafford County. It is likely that he had for some time lived in Dumfries, the thriving little Scotch trading center on the mighty Potomac, but a few miles distant from "Stony Hill", the Peyton seat on Acquia Creek. To have formed a marriage alliance with one of the most notable families of that part of Virginia, William Powell, Jr. must have been a young gentleman of very respectable reputation and fortune. Apparently he forsook the faith of his fathers after his removal to Virginia and married into the staunch Episcopal Peyton-Harrison connection--for these two families, separated by only a few miles, were closely allied by blood and marriage." After 1734 he was a Farmer in Pr. WilliamCo, Virginia. He donated a land gift to on 20 May 1740 A deed made William to his brother John states that his father, William, had intended to give John more of the land but had not put it into his will. Since William was the eldest, this land went to him but he deeded it to John. This deed was signed by William Powell and Ellen Powell, his wife. He purchased land on 21 Sep 1740 in Pr. WilliamCo, Virginia Valentine and Frances Peyton by indenture sold William Powell for 5 shillings 150 A. on the North end of that tract of land which Peyton bought of Thomas Dalice (Dallas) to enclose the plantation where Powell lived. (William was the son-in-law of Valentine & Frances.) He purchased land on 22 Oct 1741 in Fauquier & Loudoun Co, Virginia 10 Feb 1762. Deed of Gift. William Powell of Prince William, Parish of Dittengen, to Leven Powell, for natural love and affection for which I have and do bear unto my son...tract in Fauquier and Loudoun taken up and pattented by William Powell and surveyed by Thomas Davis...22 Oct. 1741.. 557 acres.. Signed William Powell. He obtained a Land Patent on 22 Oct 1741 in Hunger Run, Pr. WilliamCo, Virginia. , "A tract of 557 acres was granted to William Powell, Jr. It was a part of the 'White Plains', grazing land where from immemorial times the Indians had hunted buffalo and elk, and still claimed as hunting grounds by the slowly receding Iroquouis nation."
"Col. Francis Peyton, his wife's brother, had already taken up grants nearby in the neighborhood of Aldie as early as 1734....Peyton, J.P., Burgess, and Sheriff of old Prince William, distinguished soldier of the Revolution." [William & Mary Quarterly]

It is of interest that William Hanks I purchased land from "Paul Woodbridge of Farnham in the County of Rappk, Sept. 2 1691". William paid in hand, "four thousand pounds of ....Tobb. for one hundred acres of land....on the branch of the Moraties Creek." (Deed Book 9, p. 225 Rappahannock County, Essex Co. C.H.) William died late in the year, probably January of 1704/05 and his son William II came intocourt "7th day of February" and upon his petition as shown in the old record, "Order for administration is granted to him on all end singular the estate of his deceased father." By law of primogeniture, William inherited all the land. Probate records indicate that there were two other sons named Luke and John.

1633 - For slandering the minister, Mr. Cotton, Henry Charlton of Hungar's Parish, Virginia was ordered "to make a pair of stocks and set in them several Sabbath days after divine service, and then ask Mr. Cotton's forgiveness for using offensive words concerning him." 245

1634 - Thomas Hartley, of Hungars Parish, Virginia, sent a letter to Governor Endicott of Massachusetts. It gave a graphic description of a ducking-stool, and an account of a ducking in Virginia:

"The day afore yesterday at two of ye clock in ye afternoon I saw this punishment given to one Betsey wife of John Tucker who by ye violence of her tongue has made his house and ye neighborhood uncomfortable. She was taken to ye pond near where I am sojourning by ye officer who was joined by ye Magistrate and ye Minister Mr. Cotton who had frequently admonished her and a large number of People. They had a machine for ye purpose yt belongs to ye Parish, and which I was so told had been so used three times this Summer. It is a platform with 4 small rollers or wheels and two upright posts between which works a Lever by a Rope fastened to its shorter or heavier end. At ye end of ye longer arm is fixed a stool upon which sd Betsey was fastened by cords, her gown tied fast around her feete. The Machine was then moved up to ye edge of ye pond, ye Rope was slackened by ye officer and ye woman was allowed to go down under ye water for ye space of half a minute. Betsey had a stout! stomach, and would not yield until she had allowed herself to be ducked 5 several times. At length she cried piteously, Let me go Let me go, by God's help I'll sin no more. Then they drew back ye Machine, untied ye Ropes and let her walk home in her wetted clothes a hopefully penitent woman." 245

Note:
The booklet "Recollections: Yesterday, Today for Tomorrow", published in 1969 by Bracken County Homemakers says that Hugh Marshall came to Bracken County with the Philip Buckner party in 1796. There were a total of 40 families, 70 people in all. Philip Buckner of Caroline Co, Virginia was a Captain in the Continental Army of Virginia. As a result of his service, he received several thousand acres of land, beginning in 1781, in Kentucky and Ohio. He made his first trip into the area in 1783, and later made several trips back and forth. In 1793 he took his family and friends and 40 Negroes to Bear Grass Station, a military post (present-day Louisville, Kentucky.) He left them there and returned to VA "to induce other families" to relocate. Who would be more logical to encourage than his own brothers, nephews, and cousins? Apparently he had much land, much more that he could use, and he was offering it to those who would like to have it. Phillip Buckner founded Augusta, Kentucky, one of the earliest settlements on the Ohio River, in 1795. He received the land as a gift from the Commonwealth of Virginia for his gallant participation in the Revolutionary War. Buckner and several scouts first surveyed the 200 acres at the mouth of the Little Bracken Creek in 1780. Pleased with the land development potential, Buckner later returned with his family, a small group of settlers, and 40 slaves. The settlement at that time was part of Mason County. In December 1796, Mason and Campbell Counties were divided to form Bracken County. Augusta was named the county seat. On October 2, 1797, Philip Buckner dedicated 600 acres to the town of Augusta.

Governor J. Hoge Tyler's Family
Richard Tyler Jr., born probably about 1685, died 1761, married about 1722 Catharine daughter of Henry Williamson and his second wife Catherine Weeks. Catherine Weeks was the daughter of Abraham Weeks.

Catharine Williamson was bequeathed by her father in his will land in Middlesex that had been given him in 1688 by his father-in-law Abraham Weeks. Catharine was also a devisee of Capt. Edward Thomas ( 1643-1699) who left her land in Essex County and made her and her sister, Frances, executors of his will, though no relationship is mentioned (Essex County Deed and Will Bk 10, P 21).

Catharine married before 1702 Capt. William Young, son of William Young (died 1698 Essex County Deed and Will Bk 9, P 139.)

Capt. William Young died 1719 (Essex County Will Bk 3, P 87) leaving his widow with seven children, William, Elizabeth, Henry ( died 1750), Mary, Catharine, John (died 1749) and Williamson (died 1750) who was born after his father's will was made.

Capt. William Young's sister Anne married by 1697 Richard Covington, son of William Covington (Deed and Will Bk 9, P 106) which explains the frequency with which we find Covingtons, Youngs and Tylers witnessing papers and going on bonds for each other.

Catherine did not long remain a widow but soon married Thomas Montague, son of William Montague. Thomas Montague died in 1721 (Will Bk 3, P 255) and being still interested in matrimony, she took for her third husband Richard Tyler. By him she had one child, Frankey.

The exact date of Catharine's death is unknown but it was probably about 1751. Richard Tyler married (2) Anne , who survived him less than a month. There were no children by this marriage.

There is a large branch that flows into Piscataway from the southeast. It was by many considered to be Piscataway. It took a ruling of the Court to fix the name Piscataway as that of the west branch. The other large branch became known as the SE branch of Piscataway or King's Swamp. On this swamp have been 5 water grist mills most of which were built before 1692. The south swamp was also called Green Swamp, Beeby's Swamp, Webb's Mill Swamp, Covington's Mill Swamp, Dunn's Mills Swamp and now Essex Mill Swamp. Landowners on or near this swamp were James Webb, Henry Smith, John Jones, Henry Williamson and others.

Tithables of Lancaster County Virginia
Richard Loes was J.P. for Lancaster 1652-56 and on Dec. 11, 1656 was appointed a justice and captain of militia in the new county of Rappahannock.

Notes: In his will dated April 2nd and proved in Rappahannock July 7, 1675 Richard Loes makes bequests to his son-in law (step-son?) James Tacket of all his Estate in Maryland and 50 hogsheads of tobacco the testaor had recently shipped out to Maryland to Walter Tucker, merchant, also gives him half his stocks of horses, cattle, etc., two slaves, a gun, etc. and all the pewter that was his deceased mother's.
To son-in-law Mr. Henry Williamson all of his lands on Rappahannock and the rest of her personal estate.

Based upon the bequest in the Will which stated "all the pewter which was his mother's deceased", James Tacket does seem to be the son of the wife of Richard Loes by a previous marriage to ____ Tacket. No such mention is made in regard to Henry Williamson who is left all the Virginia land and all the rest of his personal estate. Thus Henry Williamson does seem to have been a son-in-law and not a step-son of Richard Loes.

The 1653 record says that Toby Smith and Richard Loes gave a heifer to Henry Williamson, son in-law of Richard Loes. In 1653 Henry Williamson was 17 years of age. The relationship to Toby Smith is unknown. Henry Williamson was married to Catherine Weekes by 1679.

Notes: The Will of Henry Williamson seems to suggest the possibility that Elizabeth Williamson was the daughter of Henry Williamsonson and the daughter of Richard Loes.

Elizabeth Williamson is given the land that Henry Williamson inherited from Richard Loes.
Katherine and Frances receive the land inherited from Abraham Weekes, father of the second wife of Henry Williamson.

Elizabeth is clearly older than the other two daughters and apparently several years older.
Apparently none of the daughters were married when Henry Williamson wrote his will in March of 1699. Elizabeth for certain was married when the will was proved.

In the somewhat odd last paragraph of the Will he says:
"in case my younger daughters should grow stubborn and not comformable to their older sister and _____, then I shall leave it by decision of my feofees in trust to put them out to such labor as they shall think fit and convenient for their _____ education."

This sentence seems to indicate that these 2 younger sisters were somewhat subject to their older sister. Thus Elizabeth may have been born before circa 1678.

CHILDREN OF HENRY WILLIAMSON

ELIZABETH WILLIAMSON

"William and Mary Quarterly"
Armistead Family
John Armistead married first, Elizabeth (?Gill), mentioned as sister Elizabeth Armisread in the will of James Burwell and second, Susanna, daughter of Thomas Meriwether of Essex who made his will in 1708 when Susanna was not then baptized.

The will of Thomas Meriwether, son of Nicholas Meriwether, of Surry, the immigrant, names brother Francis of Essex: Nicholas of New Kent; sister Jane Brown, wife of William Brown of Surry; wife Susannah; nephew William Meriwether, son of brother Nicholas, to have his land in Surry; nephews William, David and Francis, sons of brother Nicholas; Rallph Shelton; land to child unbaptized; Nicholas and Francis Meriwether executors. Dated Jan. 7, 1708 , proved Feb. 10, 1708-09.

Thomas Meriwether was one of the feoffees of Tappahannock. He married twice.

Henry Williamson, Gent bequeathed lands in 1699 given to him by Captain Richarrd Loes and Mr. Abraham Weeks and Millicent his wife of Rappahannock to his 3 daughters, Elizabeth, Katherine and Frances. Aterwards in 1707 William Young of Essex and Katharine his wife, one of the daughters, confirmed to Thomas Meriwether half of the lands devised by William(??) unto his daughter Elizabeth Meriwether, deceased and in case of his death to said Katherine Young and Frances Bird, his other daughters. (Essex Records).

Notes: Henry Williamson made his 3 daughters executors of his Will. On Sept. 11, 1699 when the will of Henry Williamson was proved, Thomas Meriwether and wife Elizabeth signed.

KATHERINE WILLIAMSON

"Adventurers of Purse and Person", P 252
Thomas Montague married Katherine, daughter of Henry Williamson and widow of William Young. The will of Thomas Montague Feb. 7, 1720 to May 16, 1721 Essex County, named wife, "son-in-law" (step-son) William Young and "daughter-in-law" (step-daughter) Elizabeth Young, bequeaths "all that parcel of land called 'Montague's Island' to "cozen (nephew) William Montague, son of my brother William Montague" and leaves to "Thomas Paine of Middlesex County, 150 acres out of upper side of my land lying in Essex County."

"Tyler's Quarterly Magazine"
Governor J. Hoge Tyler's Family
Richard Tyler Jr., born probably about 1685, died 1761, married about 1722 Catharine daughter of Henry Williamson and his second wife Catherine Weeks. Catherine Weeks was the daughter of Abraham Weeks.

Catharine Williamson was bequeathed by her father in his will land in Middlesex that had been given him in 1688 by his father-in-law Abraham Weeks. Catharine was also a devisee of Capt. Edward Thomas ( 1643-1699) who left her land in Essex County and made her and her sister, Frances, executors of his will, though no relationship is mentioned (Essex County Deed and Will Bk 10, P 21).

Catharine married before 1702 Capt. William Young, son of William Young (died 1698 Essex County Deed and Will Bk 9, P 139.)

Capt. William Young died 1719 (Essex County Will Bk 3, P 87) leaving his widow with seven children, William, Elizabeth, Henry ( died 1750), Mary, Catharine, John (died 1749) and Williamson (died 1750) who was born after his father's will was made.

Capt. William Young's sister Anne married by 1697 Richard Covington, son of William Covington (Deed and Will Bk 9, P 106) which explains the frequency with which we find Covingtons, Youngs and Tylers witnessing papers and going on bonds for each other.

Catherine did not long remain a widow but soon married Thomas Montague, son of William Montague. Thomas Montague died in 1721 (Will Bk 3, P 255) and being still interested in matrimony, she took for her third husband Richard Tyler. By him she had one child, Frankey.

The exact date of Catharine's death is unknown but it was probably about 1751. Richard Tyler married (2) Anne , who survived him less than a month. There were no children by this marriage.

FRANCES WILLIAMSON

"Hoskins of Virginia and Related Families" by Charles Willard Hoskins Warner, 1971
Robert Bird III (1681-1714) always closely associated with his brother, was as stated, captain of the King and Queen Militia. He was a member of the county court where he was high sheriff in 1704.

He married about 1702 Frances Williamson, one of the three daughters of Henry Williamson, Gent. of Essex County. The other daughters, Elizabeth, married Thomas Meriwether of Essex and Katherine married William Young of Essex County. This Robert Bird III was dead by 1714 as his widow Frances married second Robert Ransome and third John Bryant, both of St. Stephens Parish, King and Queen County.

ELIZABETH BERRYMAN'S WILL

In the Name of God Amen I Elizabeth Berryman of the County of Westmoreland being weak in body but of sound and disposing mind and memory do constitute and appoint this my last Will & testament in manner following. Whereas my husband Benjamin Berryman by his last Will authorized me to make distribution of all his slaves to his six sons or the survivors of them and whereas three of the said Sons viz Newton, John and Henry died before they came of age and was not possesst of any of their fathers estate and whereas William, James and Maximilian are the surviving sons I give all the slaves with their increase to be divided as follows, Imprimis I give to my son William Berryman Old Negro Jack and Grace and their ten Children and bob which in his possession and Sall which I delivered to him as part of his fathers estate some years past but being a little Negro girl, that attended me I desired my son William to let her stay and wait on me which is now with me, as also I give him Rachel and Nel & Beck their Mother, to him and his heirs and assigns forever and allso my fathers Old Silver Tankard without a lid and also my fathers coat of arms. And also I give to my said son William Berryman all the lands I bought of Cossom Bennett in the County of Westmoreland which I have given him by a deed and do confirm to him his heirs and assigns forever.

Item I give to my son James Berryman, Negro George, Jack, Anthony, Ben, Aaron, Suke, Nace, Mary, Tim, Ned, Jude, Peg and her youngest Child Gerrat, Winney, and Belley to him his heirs and assigns forever. Item I give to my son Maximilian, fourteen Negroes which he has in his possession as also Salley, Lilla and Frank which are yet in my possession, to him his heirs and assigns forever.

Item my will and desire is that my stock and household stuff of what kind soever Tobacco Corn Money etc shall be equally divided between my three children that is to say William James and Katherine Nowles (Vowles?)

Item my son Benjamin Berryman had his part of his fathers estate before his death, Item my daughter Rose Taliaferro had her part of her fathers estate before his death.

Item my Daughter Frances Foot has her part since her fathers death according to his Will and gave a receipt for it. Item my daughter Sarah Douglas has had her part of the negroes and my daughter Katharine Nowles has had her part of the Negroes, the reason bf my giving son William Seventeen Negroes and my son James but sixteen is because some negroes that my son William is possest of are very Deficient for old Jack & Grace are almost past labour, and one negro fellow with One eye and one hand, and another cripled lad of very little use, therefore I think the division I have made will make them equal according to quantity and quality.

Item I appoint my sons William and James Berryman executors to this my last will and testament. In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand and seal this 14th day of June 1762.

From, "The Flowering of the Maryland Palatinate," by Harry Wright Newman, published by the author, Washington, 1961:

"Rachel Neville, daughter of John Neville and Joan Porter his wife, married Michael Ashford, of Charles County, sometime before November 13, 1677, when her mother and the latter's second husband, Thomas Hussey, Gent., deeded them "Moore's Ditch." Michael Ashford was a carpenter and planter of Nanjemoy Hundred, and on June 13, 1670, he had witnessed a deed of Thomas Hussey and Joan his wife. In 1671 a reference was made to the estate of Michael Ashford whose wife was Deborah, so it was possible that they were the parents of younger Michael.
Michael Ashford became involved in several lawsuits. It seemed as if he was out of the Province for a time, whereby his estate was placed in the hands of his step-father-in-law, Thomas Hussey, especially on November 11, 1673, when the court ordered the attachment of his goods to the value of 9000 lbs. tob.
About 1680 Michael Ashford, addressed as Captain, was surety with Francis Wyne for THOMAS MARSHALL, the administrator of the estate of Samuel Raspin, late of Charles County. By 1683 Francis Wyne was deceased and his widow had married Henry Hawkins. Hawkins consequently became the joint-surety with Ashford, but at court Hawkins declared that Ashford had gone to Virginia.
When he assigned "Moore's Ditch" to his father-in-law, Thomas Hussey, Gent., on June 10, 1691, he was styled Michael Ashford, of Charles County, Carpenter. The consideration was 35,000 lbs. tob. and the plantation lay on the west side of Zachia Swamp adjoining the land of George and Robert Goodrick. This could have been a mortgage or only a portion of the plantation, for on March 10, 1714/15, he sold to Ignatius Luckett, of Charles County, Planter, "Moore's Ditch" for 7000 lbs. tob.
On April 14, 1726, being of Stafford County, Virginia, he conveyed to John Smallwood, of Portobacco Creek, for 600 lbs. tob. "Totsal," lying on the south side of Potomac River.
The loss of many records of Stafford County prevents greater knowledge of the activities of Michael Ashford and his immediate descendants. The last will and testament of a Michael Ashford was probated in Prince William County, Virginia, in 1734 [Will Book C, 1734 to 1744]."

On 29 Apr 1692, John Williams was granted 410 acres of land in Gloucester County, near Poropotank Creek; on N side of York River bounded by the lands of Roger Shakleford, John Major and John Lewistone. This patent does not recite in what county the land lies; it may lie either in Gloucester or King and Queen Counties; part of the land was formerly in New Kent County, "Of King and Queen County". This same patent was registered again on 29 Apr 1693 in King and Queen County. It is interesting to note that Phillip Buckner, the brother of John Buckner, James' future father-in-law, was granted 90 acres 30 poles of land in Stafford County, in the Parish of Chotanke, adjoining Francis Dade, John Williams, Elizabeth Burnitt, Christopher Boice, Jonas Rivett & company.

On 2 May 1713 Orlando Jones (future husband of Mary Elizabeth, the daughter of James) was granted 90 acres of land in King William County, between the College land and John Williams land on the east side of Johns Creek.
