Did you Check Out the Neighborhood? #virginiapioneersnet #vagenealogy

Did you Check Out the Neighborhood?

plantingResearch into the past involves small tracts of land and a few people. Those people were friends, relatives and neighbors of your ancestors. Picture a farm and a small community with churches and graveyards. There were no TV sets or other entertainment, so people lived their lives among these friends and neighbors. They were married by local ministers who was not required to file the marriage license with the local court house. The books of local churches rarely survived. That leaves the family bible, so important a record of family affairs. The genealogist surveys the burial grounds to try and learn where the congregation came from. The tombstones sometimes reflect this. The movement of whole congregations from one State to another was not uncommon. And what was going on that year when the church was established? Where were people migrating from? Thus, it is the task of the genealogist to get some answers. A good start is the deed records because deeds begin "Know all Men by These Presents that I, John Smith, of Clarke County, Georgia, do hereby grant unto John Brown of Carteret County, North Carolina ...." Local neighbors and relatives witness the deeds. If you have several persons with identical names in the records, taking note of the witnesses is essential in identifying the correct people. Another good source is Deeds of Gift which convey property to children before death. Deed records also contain Marriage Contracts which were frequently used for ladies with property marrying a second time because she wanted to differentiate between the property she inherited from a previous husband in order to pass it on to her children by that husband.

The King's Attorney in Virginia #history #genealogy #virginiapioneers.net

Gabriel Jones, the King's Attorney

BogotoGabriel Jones of Wales came to Virginia in 1720 but returned to England to study the law. Following his admission to the bar and the death of his mother in 1745, Jones was persuaded by either Thomas Fairfax, 6th Lord Fairfax of Cameron, the landowner of the Northern Neck Proprietary, or his relative Hugh Mercer to return to Virginia. On March 1, 1747, he acquired a tract of land along Opequon Creek near present-day Kernstown in 1747 and became the private secretary to Lord Fairfax. During April of 1746 he was appointed to serve as the King's attorney as a young man 22 years of age, duty which also included Augusta County. He was a member of the House of Burgesses of Virginia in 1748, and he was subsequently re-elected to his seat during the 1749 Legislative session. Jones was again elected to represent Frederick County in the House of Burgesses in 1752, but resigned the following to serve as the coroner of Fairfax County. In 1753, Jones relocated from Kernstown in Frederick County to his estate "Bogota" in Augusta County (present-day Rockingham County near Port Republic.

Gloucester County Genealogy, Wills, Estates, Marriages #virginiapioneersnet

Gloucester County Genealogy, Wills, Estates, Marriages


Gloucester County VirginiaGloucester County was created in 1651 but Indian activity dominated the scene. The fortress of Chief Powhatan was located on the north side of the river in Gloucester and Powhatan had built his home Werowocomoco on land that is now in Gloucester County. This location is where Princess Pocahontas, daughter of Chief Powatan, saved the life of Captain John Smith, earning both of them prominent places in our nation's history books. Apparently an order was given in the colony to erect brick courthouses because there is a menton the Middlesex County Orders (1680-94) that the Gloucester court-house building was of brick and that the Middlesex Court House should be at least of equal goodness and dimensions " as ye brick court-house lately built in Gloucester County."

Accomack County, Virginia Genealogy, Wills, Estates



Accomack CountyAccomac Shire was established in 1634 as one of the original eight shires of Virginia. The name comes from the Native American work Accawmack, meaning on the other side. In 1642 the name was changed to Northampton. Northampton was then divided into two counties in 1663. The northern section assumed the original Accomack name, the southern, Northampton. In 1670, the virginia Colony's Royal Governor William Berkeley abolished Accomack county, but the Virginia General Assembly re-created it in 1671. The justices of Accomac held their terms of court for many years at Pungoteague in the tavern belonging to John Cole, who did not charge for this use. In 1677 it was decided to erect a court-house where the majority of the freeholders chose. Cole, reminding the judges of his liberality, asserted that, having recently purchased the Freeman plantation, he was sure that it would offer a very convenient site for the projected county seat. He also offered to furnish thirty thousand bricks for the construction and also all of the timber. These bricks were to be burned on the spot by James Ewell, who was indebted to Cole. Three years passed and the projected structure had not been completed. In 1680, there was an order of the court directing Major Charles Scarborough to engage workmen at once to proceeding with the construction.
