  • Notes 
    • Gleanings of Virginia History by William Fletcher Boogher

      John Newman Jr. 24, who emigrated to Virginia in 1635 in the ship "Globe". John settled in James City County, where on 1 April 1644, Henry Thompson assigned to him 150 acres of land pm Smith's Fort Creek. He appears to have resided there for about seven years, as between 1652 and 1677, he had acquired in the Northern Neck by letters patent , grant and deeds, about 4,000 acres situated on both sides of Moratico Creek, in the present counties of Lancaster and Richmond. He resided near Tarply's Point, then known as Moratico or Newman's Neck. He married a Miss Woodbridge (about 1655) daughter of Paul Woodbridge, in then Rappahannock County. They had three sons, Alexander, Samuel and John

      Note:
      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.

      Note:
      According to the book, Lineage of Lincoln, by William E. Barton, the wife of William Hanks was Sarah WOODBRIDGE, daughter of Paul Woodbridge.

      The Hankses and Woodbridges are closely associated in various deeds, so there is evidence that Sarah could have been a Woodbridge, however the age of Sarah does not seem to fit in with the ages of the other children of Paul Woodbridge.

      Also, the will of Paul Woodbridge has recently been located. It only mentions his wife, sons William and George, and daughters Elizabeth and Anne. No daughter Sarah is mentioned.

      The conclusion is that Sarah (Woodbridge) Hanks was most likely a sister of Paul Woodbridge, rather than a daughter. This would make her the daughter of John Woodbridge and wife Elizabeth who immigrated from Gravesend, England to Virginia in 1634 and 1635. This couple is the right age to be the parents of Paul Woodbridge and Sarah (Woodbridge) Hanks. Thanks to Richard Luht and Betty Craven, Jan Oldham and Kathleen Much for supplying the information to help me come to these conclusions.
