Warascoyak or Smithfield, Virginia #genealogy #history #virginiapioneersnet

Warascoyak or Smithfield

Pagan RiverPictured is the Pagan River near Jamestown. Smithfield was first colonized in 1634 and occupied an Indian site called Warascoyak, also spelled Warrosquoyacke, which was first a county of that name. It was renamed Isle of Wight County in 1637. The town itself was established as a seaport ca 1752 by Arthur Smith IV. An area called "Wharf Hill" was established as a waterfront for industries and served during the Revolutionary War as a harbor for patriots to receive arms and supplies. Its dock was used in the "Show Boat" a famous drama of the 20th century. The famous landmark of the Old Brick Church near Smithfield, built ca 1632, features a graveyard vandalized during the Revolutionary War as an insult to the Loyalists of Great Britain. During the reign of King George, Virginians were required to attend church and pay a tithe in tobacco.

Isle of Wight Co. VA Wills, Marriages #genealogy #virginiapioneersnet

Isle of Wight County, Virginia Genealogy, Wills, Estates, Marriages, Court House Records


old court house
History: In 1662, the site of Patesfield was selected for a new town. As an inducement to build on these sites, a lot, half an acre in extent, was granted in fee simple to any one on condition of erecting a residence and store on it, this conveyance being subject to the additional condition that the beneficiary should pay one hundred pounds to the county. In 1698, Robert Scot willed the whole amount of the sums due him by different persons, in the form of tobacco or coin, to indigent persons in Isle of Wight County. The only persons allowed to furnish friendly Indians with match-coats, hoes and axes were such as had been nominated by the county courts and the right of absolute free trade was granted to the Indian population on the Eastern Shore. As a result, certain places were appointed as public marts, to which the Indians who were at peace with the white were invited to come at a specified time. These marts were situated in Henrico, Isle of Wight, New Kent, Rappahannock, Lancaster, Stafford, Accomack and Northampton Counties.

The Magna Carta of the Seas - Isle of Wight Co. VA Wills, Estates #genealogy #virginiapioneersnet

The Magna Carta of the Seas
By Jeannette Holland Austin 

Navigation ActThe Navigation Act of 1660, the Staple Act of 1663 and the Act of 1673 imposing Plantation Duties were the foundation of the old colonial system of Great Britain. During the seventeenth century colonies were referred to and treated as plantations by England. It was a situation which enabled the mother country to regulate trade and industry across the seas to their colonies. The Navigation Act itself followed a policy laid down in the Statute of 1651 by the Commonwealth, and was directed at the Dutch, who traded goods more cheaply with the colonists in the Atlantic and Wst Indies. In fact, they were fast monopolizing the merchant vessels. The Act explicitely forbade that any goods be imported into or exported from His Majesty's plantations except in English, Irish, or colonial vessels. Also, the master of the ship and three fourths of his crew must be English as well. Hence, with no attempt made to disguise its trading regime, contemporary Englishmen of that age hailed this Act as the . The result was that the colonies were almost solely dependent upon England and it toe-tailed other countries from an accumulation of wealth. Thus, the English, Irish and colonials possessed a shipping monopoly of the carrying trade within the Empire. The Act also aided English merchants in the requirement that goods of foreign origin should be imported directly from the place of production and that certain plantation commodities such as sugar, tobacco, cotton, wool, Indicoes, ginger, fustick and other dyeing wood should be carried only to English ports. From the inception of Parliament's first trading Acts to the many others later imposed, the taxes and duties imposed upon the colonies made life more difficult, even up the Acts of 1764 and 1765 which were described as the ":The Eve of the Revolution."

A Landmark Site Helps Locate the Old Family Homeplace #genealogy #virginiapioneersnet

A Landmark Site Helps Locate the Old Family Homeplace 
By Jeannette Holland Austin

octonia stoneOctonia Mill was located .4 of a mile NW of Route 637 and 1.7 miles NW of the intersection of Route 1001 in Greene County, Virginia. There is a real issue trying to zero in on those ancestors who migrated into the Blue Ridge and Alleghany mountains of Virginia. For one thing, the boundaries frequently changed, especially as part of the region went into Kentucky and West Virginia. People lived far apart and curvy mountain trails and runs were prevalent. Here is how I found the elusive Edward Franklyn of Augusta/Orange/Botetourt/Greene Counties. That same region where he resided fell into four different counties, Greene being the last county. An excellent vehicle to research are deed records, including land grants, because land was so important to early settlers that documents were recorded at the court house. Another source are Minute Records and Orders of the Court. In this example, I found an order to clear a road from Piney Mountain Run, " Edward Franklyn being also surveyor of the lower part of the said road from Octonia Mill to the said Piney Mountain. (1736)" Octonia stone was gathered in the region and milled. The work order stated that "your petitioner (John Cleveland) lives four miles above the Piney Mountain Run and Laurence Franklyn and William Franklyn lived higher." Using this information as well as the exact location of the site of Octonia Mill, one can just about locate the old Franklyn home site. What does this information do for you? It provide the names of four counties where to search records. The very large Augusta County was populated in those days by Germans and Scotch-Irish. The Germans came primarily from Berks and Burk Counties while other immigrants were from Philadelphia County. But people were steadily moving westward, therefore, the task is tedious. A later deed from Orange County, dated in 1789, was where Edward Franklin and Sarah, his wife, sold to Zachariah Burnley 500 acres of land "devised to me by my father Edward Franklin on the land on which he lived and died and is now bounded by the lands of Zachariah Burnley, William Tomberlin and Alexander Marr." Another, deed from Pheby Franklin, agreed to deed 100 acres devised to her by her father to Zachariah Burnley.

Images of Princess Anne Co. VA Wills, Estates, Deeds, Taxpayers #genealogy #virginiapioneersnet

Princess Anne County Genealogy, Wills, Estates, Indexes to Probate Records


Wytheville

Note: When researching Princess Anne County for ancestors, Norfolk County should also be examined as the names between the two counties were frequently inter-changed with relatives. When Admiral Christopher Newport and the colonists of the Virginia Company arrived in 1607, George Percy and his fellow Englishmen's first landing was at Cape Henry. They named the spot in honor of Henry Frederick, Prince of Wales, the eldest son of King James I of England. It was this spot which later became Princess Anne County. A well-known planter was Adam Thoroughgood who settling along the Lynnhaven River. In 1634, the King of England directed the formation of eight shires (or counties) in the colony of Virginia. One of these was Elizabeth City Shire, which included land area on both sides of Hampton Roads. New Norfolk County was formed in 1636 from Elizabeth City Shire. New Norfolk County included all the area in South Hampton Roads now incorporated in the five independent cities located there in modern times. In 1637 this tract was divided into Upper Norfolk County and Lower Norfolk County. In 1691, Lower Norfolk County was in turn subdivided to form Norfolk County and Princess Anne County, which contained the area of Lynnhaven Parish. Princess Anne County was named for the heir to the English throne, who later became Queen Anne.

The following allowances were made in the levy of Princess Anne County for 1696 for the construction of a court-house. A new jail was erected at the same time, and to some extend the outlay for the two is given together in the entry quoted: "To Timbner for the frame of court house and prison, 1000 lbs. Tobo.; Digging Post holes for the court house, 30 lbs. Tobo.; 2850 Boards for outside work, 1425 lbs. Tobo; Bringing above down, boating them; To Joseph Godacres loading and carting them, 500 lbs. Tobo.; Taking down the table, benches and bar at old Court house, bringing here and setting up, 100 lbs. Tobo.; Taking up plank at old Court house, boat and hands bringing it to Court house and carting, 400 lbs. Tobo; 650 plank of Adam Keeling, 650 lbs. Tobo.; To a boat and hands 2 days fetching 400 feet of it to Godacres' landing; One day carting it thence to Court house, 50 lbs. Tobo; One day carting sleepers to court house, 60 bs. Tobo; 6000 8d. Nails, 480 lbs. Tbo; 1000 10. nails, 100 lbs. Tobo; 1000 4d. nails, 45 lbs. Tobo; 500 20d. nails, 150 lbs. Tobo; 1500 Boards for inside @600 lbs. p. 1000, 900 lbs. Tobo; 2 bbl. of tar and bringing same, 300 lbs. Tobo; carting course house frame, 410 lbs. Tobo; To superintendence, 800 lbs. Tobo."

Where to Search for Early Settlers to Princess Anne County #genealogy #virginiapioneersnet

Early Settlers of Princess Anne County 
By Jeannette Holland Austin 

Albemarle SoundMany of the first settlers to Princess Anne County acquired land patents or grants in Currituck County, North Carolina. John Legat, born ca 1650, of Currituck in the province of North Carolina deeded to David Legat of Lynnhaven Parish, Princess Anne County, in 1699, 100 acres of land for life. In 1692 Governor Francis Nicholson granted to Adam Furgison 120 acres of land lying on the westward side of the North River Swamp in Princess Anne County adjoiningg lands of Beatcher and Thomas Tooley. While researching persons in Princess Anne County, one should also search Albemarle Sound in Outerbanks, North Carolina where many of the first settlers also owned land. www.virginiapioneers.net

Campbell Co. VA Wills, Estates, Marriages, Tax Digests #genealogy #virginiapioneersnet

Campbell County, Virginia Genealogy, Wills, Estates, Marriages, Tax Digests


Campbell County, Virginia Campbell County was first settled in the early 1730s by Scotch-Irish families. It was named after Revolutionary War hero, General William Campbell who became famouse when he defeated the Tories and Loyalists at the Battle of Kings Mountain. In 1757, John Lynch, son of one of the first Quaker families, operated a ferry service which crossed the James River and ultimately helped to populate the present city of Lynchburg. Meanwhile, Lynchs brother, Charles, developed Green Level (now Avoca), located in present day Altavista. Lynchburg was officially created from Campbell County land in 1786. Fifty acres of land donated by Jeremiah Rust in 1784 became the county seat of Rustburg. Brookneal, a busy intersection of trails on the Staunton River, was founded in 1802. Patrick Henry himself removed to Campbell County after having served five terms as Governor of Virginia and developed his Red Hill Plantation. When Henry died on June 6, 1799, he was buried at Red Hill and today the plantation is a public shrine to his memory. Campbell County was named for William Campbell, one of the heroes of the Battle of Kings Mountain in 1780. The county was formed in 1781 from the county of Bedford and was the first Virginia county to be formed after the Revolutionary War.

Quaker Settlements in Campbell Co. VA

Jeannette Holland AustinQuaker Settlements in Campbell County, Virginia

By Jeannette Holland Austin

Lynchburg was first settled in 1757 by Quaker John Lynch who started a ferry service at a ford across the James River to carry traffic to and from New London. Lynch was buried in the graveyard at the South River Friends Meetinghouse. Micajah Moorman settled on 308 acres of land on Mollies Creek in Gladys, Virginia. Apparently Moorman planned to follow the Quaker movement into Ohio because he owned 350 acres there. When he died in 1806, he specified that 50 acres of land be purchased in Ohio and that if the family wished, should removed to Ohio. The Encyclopedia of Quaker Records by Hinshaw reflect that Moorman was married to another Quaker, Susannah Chiles, in Caroline County in 1754. It is always a good idea to examine these records to follow the movements of the families.

A Descendant of George Washington? #history #virginiapioneersnet

A Descendant of Washington 
Published by The Jones Headlight, Gray's Station, January 28, 1888

Joseph E. Washington"Speaking of Washington, writes F. G. Carpenter, from the National capital, we have, I understand, one of his descendants in this Congress in the person of Joseph E. Washington who succeedes representative Caldwell of Nashville. Washington is a young man not over thirty, small stourt and light-haired. He does not show much evidence of the Washington features, but he is, I understand worth a million dollars, and the most of his property comes by inheritance. It is a curious thing that a descendant of Washington should represent the district of Andrew Jackson."\; 

Note: Washington was born on November 10, 1851 on the family homestead, Wessyngton near Cedar Hill, Tennessee. He was a graduate of Georgetown College in Washington, D.C. on June 26, 1873 and two years later studied law at Vanderbilt University in Nashville.
