  • Notes 
    • Sheriff of Westmoreland County who immigrated from Wales.

      [Paxton.FTW]

      12 CAPT. JOHN MARSHALL of the "Forest," was born in Westmoreland County, Virginia., about the year 1700; d. April, 1752, = about 1722, ELIZABETH MARKHAM, b. perhaps in Alexandria, Virginia., about 1704, d. in Fauquier Co, 1775. Mr. Marshall was a farmer, possessed of a plantation of 1,200 acres on Appomattox (called Mattox) Creek, in Washington Parish, Westmoreland County, Virginia. He was a militia captain, and a man of good reputation and influence in his neighborhood. The records of conveyances in Westmoreland County show that in 1728, William Marshall, of King & Queen County, Virginia., conveyed to John Marshall, of Westmoreland County, 1,200 acres on Appomattox Creek, Washington Parish. This may have been the estate known as "The Forest," and may have been devised to William, the oldest son, by his father Thomas (11), as shown by his will. If so, we ascertain that William, the father of Col. William, of Mecklenburg County, was a resident of King and Queen County in 1728.

      ===mm note: :Paxton has the Henrico & Westmoreland families mixed together.

      Other records may be here referred to:
      1, Louis Markham died in Washington Parish in 1713, and his estate was divided among eight children;
      2, In 1732 William Markham, of Hamilton Parish, Prince William County, conveys 126 acres on Mattox Creek, to John Price;
      3, In 1744, John Smith, jr., and Patience, his wife, sell to John Smith, sr., of Westmoreland County, 160 acres adjoining John Marshall;
      4, In 1752, Elizabeth Marshall conveys, by deed of gift, to Thomas Marshall (16), 100 acres of the homestead (The Forest) granted her by the will of her husband;
      5, Mrs. Marshall, is referred to as "Lizzie Markham, of Curls Neck, daughter of John Markham."

      HORNBUCKLE FAMILY ASSOCIATION

      For the first nineteen years that Henry spent in Virginia, we know nothing about his whereabouts. Perhaps he was an indentured servant working off the cost of his passage or serving a criminal sentence, as did many of the early emigrants to Virginia during this period. This is the most likely scenario based the fact that in 1693 at the age of forty Henry Hornbuckle resurfaced in Virginia married to Eleanor Hornbuckle (possibly, Eleanor Hall, who came over from England to the New World in 1673). Henry’s marriage and job status is evidenced by Thomas Tyrwhitt's estate settlement in which it is noted that Henry Hornbuckle owed money or goods to one Thomas Tyrwhitt. Eleanor Hornbuckle, along with six other persons, made a deposition in the Westmoreland county court on November 29, 1693 on behalf of Lewis Markham (Administrator of Mr. Tyrwhitt’s estate) "To prove his affinity to Thomas Tyrwhitt."

      A year later on February 29, 1694, Henry is again mentioned in legal documents. The Westmoreland County court ordered "Lawrence Washington, Gent. Sheriff of this county, failing to have Henry Hornbuckle at this court to answer suit of Lewis Markham, Administrator of Thomas Tyrwhitt's estate, ordered that unless Washington have Hornbuckle at the next court, judgment to pass against the sheriff for what appears to be due from Hornbuckle." The problem was resolved by April 25, 1694 when the court dismissed Markham's suit against Hornbuckle. An additional legal action was brought by John Worden Medicus, against Henry Hornbuckle for 500 pounds of tobacco. The defendant not appearing and John Andrews being returned security, upon motion of Danll McCarty, attorney per plaintiff, Judgment is granted against the security.

      A tavern and a courthouse are inseparable neighbors. The Brodhurst tavern in Cople Parish did not as such long survive the removal, about six years later, to a new courthouse miles away, of the sessions of the Westmoreland Court. After the death of Colonel Washington, the interests, if any, of his deceased second wife's son, Walter Brodhurst, Jr., in the tavern and plantation are not of record, unless he held them at his death in Lilleshall, England, in 1707, and were the property referred to years later by his relative, Thomas Addenbrooke, as stated in the letters to General George Washington. But Lewis Markham, apparently not renewing his lease in 1672, invested in an estate further up the Potomac, in Washington Parish. John Washington's last purchase of land was from Markham:

      (*) It is evident that these buildings were erected privately and leased or rented to the county. Walter Brodhurst built the prison, at least, as he was High Sheriff in 1652, before Westmoreland was set off as a county separate from Northumberland. The social status of Brodhurst and the location of his home are further indicated by his bill of sale to Mr. John Hiller, February 20, 1653, in which he describes himself as "I, Walter Brodhurst of the county of Westmerland in ye Colony of Virginia, Gent."; and a letter addressed to him viz. "ffor her much respected friend Mr Walter Brodhurst at his house at Nominy in Potomacke river, These," written by Mrs. Anna Bernard and beginning "Noble Sr," is recorded in Westmoreland Deeds, Wills & Patents, 1653-1659.
