Ladies and Gentlemen of More Glamorous Times #genealogy #virginiapioneersnet

Ladies and Gentlemen of More Glamorous Times

colonial dressGentlemen, such as those in Williamsburg, when properly dressed, wore three-cornered cocked hats, long velvet coats, embroidered silk waistcoats with flaps weighted with lead, breeches coming only to the knees, long silk stockings, and pointed shoes adorned with large silver buckles. Stately men wore their hair powdered, a long queue hanging down the back, where it was tied with a black ribbon. The clothing was often enriched with gold and silver lace, and glittering buttons. A mass of lace ruffles adorned the wrists and flowed over the hands. The street cloak glistened with gold lace, while a gold-headed cane and a gold snuff-box confirmed the wearer's title to rank as a gentleman. Ladies of wealth wore rich heavy silk over stiff hoops, and towering hats adorned with tall feathers, with hair massed and powdered as if with snowflakes. When she slept at night, in order to preserve a hairstyle which had taken hours to implement, her neck slept on a wooden bolster. The fashions of high life were very exacting and precise for those who resided in fine city homes with heavy, rich furniture imported from England, the massive silver plate of the tables, and the choice wines. The forms of address, too, showed the social rank. The terms "lady" and "gentleman" were applied only to persons of recognized standing. Genealogists note such distinctions in colonial deed records, or the term "esquire".; The title of "Mr." was conferred only upon ministers and the officers of the law, and upon their sons if college bred. An examination of old colonial graveyards denotes the wife title as "consort", which means that her husband was prominent in society. Plantation owners out in the country dressed less formally, but always wore a peruke wig, except in the early morning when he went out with his overseer to review the workload, he wore a turbin.  Buckington Co.

"Bean porridge hot, bean porridge cold...." #virginiapioneersnet #genealogy


"Bean porridge hot, bean porridge cold; bean porridge in the pot; nine days old." 

firesideIn old colonial times loaves of bread were made of mixed Indian meal and rye, not unlike the brown bread of our time. Baked pumpkin with milk was a favorite dish. Bean porridge was always a common article of food, which was made by boiling beans with the liquor in which corned beef had been cooked. It was very convenient for wood-choppers in winter to carry a frozen piece of porridge in their pockets and thaw it out for dinner in the woods. The longer it was kept, the better it tasted. Hence the common rhyme, "Bean porridge hot, bean porridge cold; bean porridge in the pot; nine days old." The cupboard or dresser had pewter plates, platters, and porringers. Square wooden plates were often used; but with some poorer families there was one common dish used, from which the whole family helped themselves with their fingers. The use of forks was unknown. Instead, thick and pewter spoons were used as eating utensils. These were easily broken, and they often had to be melted and formed again into moulds by men who traveled from house to house for this purpose. In fact shoemakers, tailors, dressmakers, butchers, and other highly useful artisans traveled about from one family to another in pursuit of work.  Brunswick Co. VA Wills & Estates; Histories

New Kent Co. VA Genealogy Records #virginiapioneersnet

New Kent County Genealogy, Wills, Estates, Probate Records, Marriages

New Kent Court House

Captain John Smith visited this area in 1607 and since that time many Europeans began immigrating into Virginia. New Kent County once formed part of Charles River County, one of the eight shires into which the colony of Virginia was divided in 1634. It origiinally included part or all of the present day counties of King & Queen, King William, Spotsylvania and Hanover, the modern day borders of New Kent took place in 1766 through exchange of land with James City County. Actually, researchers will see the mention of "Brick House". This was the first town and this was the seat of the first government. This historical site knows its history, starting with Nathaniel Bacon who, when the Governor refused to do anything about Indians who killed settlers and looted the area, formed his famous rebellion among his neighbors. The historical genealogy of the Bacon family is traced on Virginia Pioneers and is available to members. The village of New Kent appears to have been the County seat since 1691. Most of the County's colonial records were destroyed in the burning of the clerk's office in 1787, and later records were destroyed in the burning of Richmond during the Civil War. Providence Forge was one of the earliest settlements and the site of a colonial forge that was destroyed by Banister Tarleton during the Revolutionary War. Another site, St. Peter's Church at Talleysville was established in 1678 and built in 1701. It was enlarged in 1740 by the addition of a tower and vestry room and in the 1760's by the building of a north wing, believed to have been torn down in 1854. Martha Dandridge Custis who lived in White House on the Pamunkey, worshiped here at the time of her marriage to George Washington. The road leading from Richmond to Williamsburg is one oldest roads in America.

Rockbridge Co. VA Genealogy Records #virginiapioneersnet

Rockbridge County Genealogy, Wills, Estates, Tax Digests

Natural Bridge, Virginia

It is said that George Washington was one of the surveyors of the region of Natural Bridge. Rockbridge County was established in October, 1777 from parts of now neighboring Augusta and Botetourt counties, and the first county elections were held in May 1778. Rockbridge County was formed during an Act of Assembly intended to reduce the amount of travel to the nearest courthouse, and to ensure trials were held fairly, and among friends rather than strangers. The first court session in Rockbridge County was held at the home of Samuel Wallace on April 7, 1778. Rockbridge County was named after Natural 5ridge, a beautiful landmark in the southern portion of the county.
