- Ann Blankenship
- Ralph Blankenship came to Virginia as an indentured servant in 1686 or 1687 and settled in Henrico Co. On 1 April 1690 Mr. Richard Kennon of Henrico Co. came to court and applied for a patent of 8000 acres for importing 90 people and 70 Negroes. He named as headright Ralph Blankenship among others. .(Henrico Co. Record Book 2 [1678-1693], pg 326).
- Ralph Blankenship deposed on 2 April 1695 that he was about thirty-three years of age.
- 9 Jul 1724 Martha got 250 acres on the S side of the James River beginning Henry Marshall's lines to east side of the main road
- Martha married second Edward Stanley by 5 Oct 1725 he d. by 5 Jun 1727
- Ralph, John and James are named in Stanley's will pg 26 4 Jul 1726 to receive 3 plantations at Coldwater Run 230 acres
- Ralph did not leave a will. Inventory page 258. Hers is page 125
- Not in the 1705 rent rolls
- Martha's maiden name is unknown. Many trees list her as the daughter of of Charles Clay and Hannah Wilson. If so then her second husband Edward Stanley married his step-daughter since his first wife was Hannah Wilson widow of Charles Clay. I see no records to support Martha .being the daughter of Charles Clay and Edward's first wife Hannah Wilson. It seems unlikely he would marry his step-daughter especially as there is no mention of the relationship in any legal record. Also Charles nor Hannah are not names that show up in children, grandchildren.

- Ralph's will Chesterfield Co. VA book 1 page 285 20 Oct 1758 inventory page 313 14 Apr 1759 lists wife Edith and sons Gid, Womack, and Ralph. It also lists a Francis with no relationship but this is probably his brother not a son. Francis noncupative will dated 20 Oct 1758 and witnessed 7 Apr 1759 is on the same page and gives his items to Womack son of Ralph.
- There is some confusion with the names. Ralph's will refers to Gid and the guardianship record Gideon. Walter Nunnally's will refers to daughter Eve Grant and grandson Gad. Edith married second Gregory Grant will Chesterfield Co. VA book 3 page 313 she is referred to her as Edith as does Ralph's will. From this point forward all references show Gad and I do not see Gideon listed again.
- Who is the Womack Blankenship listed in the noncupative will 7 Apr 1759? Ephraim Blankenship the next of kin.

- The name Gad is one of the sons of Jacob and brother to Joseph from the book of Exodus. This makes Gad the name of one of the 12 tribes of Israel
- I have found no proof that Sarah was the daughter of John Nunnally since most of the records of Buckingham burned but it is extremely likely baed on the land transfer, John N's middle name, and lots of DNA connections to the Branch family.
- Gad Blankenship's entry in the land tax records indicate that he was responsible for the land which was John Nunalley's. It is this land that Gad gave to his sons. John started assigning his lands gradually to his sons in 1794 with the bulk of it being spit up in 1799 when Gad received his. I also suspect that John N stands for John Nunnally Blankenship. John almost always used the N even though there were no other John Blankenships in the place that he lived (at least in any records I found) but the name is not spelled out.
- Was the son Gad's wife Delilah a Hudgens? She is mentioned as a sister in the will of Mary Hudgins 1 Feb 1835 but not sure if Mary Hudgins is a spinster or this is a married name. The Hudgens do appear in Buckingham Co. from 1787 through at least 1806 (where Gad would have married by 1806) so that makes it at least possible. Harris's are there as well.
Chesterfield Co. VA
- Chesterfield Co. VA book 3 page 168 5 Aug 1768 Womack and Gideon are listed as orphans with Walter Nunnally their guardian
- Gad bought land 4 Jul 1777 from William Smith 8-214
- 1783 census with 6 whites
- May 1784 Gad listed in will of his grandfather Walter Nunnellee. This is very important as there is a related case in Chesterfield Chancery Court (file 1819-11) which spells out the relationships and identifies the Gad Blankenship of Buckingham as the grandson of Walter Nunalley. It indicates Gad did leave a will filed in July 1802 (executor Thomas Ballow) but this was burned along with the land records of Buckingham Co. The case involved true ownership of some slaves left in both Walter's will and Gad's step-father Gregory Grant's will.

- Land tax - 1789 John Nunnalley appears with 300 A followed in 1791 with an additional 1666. In 1794 some of this is in the hands of Arthur, Josiah, and eventually Barnett. In 1799 400 A are in the hands of Gad Blankenship (specifies for John N). In 1801-7 Gad's 400 A does not mention John N. 1808 missing, Between 1809 the 400 A is divided into plots for Gad est., Elijah, and John N of 133 1/3 A each. In 1818 we see Ezekiel with 35 A for the first time and it is in a different area of the Co. 1819 Elijah disappears, 1820 missing, 1821-2 John N, Gad est, Ezekiel 55, 150 acres Hatchers from John Bronson, 1823 John N 133 1/3, Ezekiel, Burton now shows Gad est, 1824-5 missing, 1826 Ezekiel 150 acres at Hatchers

He also was born when Gad was very young. Also Gad Sr's land is divided 3 ways. One goes to John N, one to Elijah, and one to Gad est which is sold by Gad Jr (I'm adding the Sr & Jr to avoid confusion but the terms do not appear in records) in 1822 while in Robertson to Burton and we see Gad est disappear after the Burton reference to it in 1823. By 1824 we also see all references to John N disappear as he moves to TN where he first appears in 1823. Note in 1805-6 it lists both Sarah and Gad which is probably Gad Jr. as in other references we see either Sarah or Gad est. An Ezekiel had a land deal Chesterfield 1807 17-462

- William Blankenship b. 19 Jun 1823 - last year of guardianship 1844 is consitant with his birth date (guardianship reaffirmed in court in Oct 1842)
- William H could be the unnamed son of Gad but it is far more likely he is the named son William of John N. First William H is exactly the same age as John N's son based on when John N's William reached his majority. But we also have DNA support. Cousins who share this line have DNA matches to Tapscott relatives of John N's wife Elizabeth Tapscott. Cousins on the same side of the family but do not descend from William H do not have DNA matches to Tapscotts. William H named his first son Robert which is his brother's name if John N is his father. Also an Elizabeth Blankenship was a member of a Free Will Baptist church in 1826 with men who would latter be connected to William H as an adult and him becoming a Free Will Baptist minister. There is also a strong connection between William H Blankenship the adult and the people connected to the people mentioned in the processing of John N Blankenships's estate. Another clue is William H lives 2 households from John Forbes in 1860 who was the guardian of the William son of John N. John N's census would indicate that William H is too young for the sons listed in the 1830 census but the other dates including John N are wrong too in this census. Its almost like they were off one column so the 1830 census is not compelling. William had a guardian until 1844 the same age William H became 21. Based on all this I think William H is clearly the son of John N and not Gad whose son we never find any record of with a name.
- I think Andrew J and John C are also sons of John N and not Gad but nothing proven. See detail on them below.

- The marriage date came from a letter written by Juanita Pauline Wright and she refers to a bible record.
- William was a minister of the Bethlehem Free Will Baptist Church north of Ashland City. .It was founded in 1847 by Elder W. L. Gower (in those days, they were apt to use Elder where we use Reverend.). Services originally were held every 3 months in homes with the frequency of service increasing over time. The original church was built around 1857 and is now in private hands on Lockertsville Rd. The center part is the original church with other parts added on over time. William H. Blankenship appears several times in the list, as follows:
- Elders W. L. Gower, William Blankenship 1855-56
- Elder William Blankenship 1856-57
- Elder A. Rose 1857-58
- Elder William Blankenship 1853-60
- Elders William Blankenship, W. L. Gower 1860-61
- Elders W. L. Gower, William Blankenship 1861-62
- Elder William Blankenship 1862-64
- He married several people in this time period including Hudgens and Harris families starting with the first Co. record marriages in 1857 through Mar 1862
- Good Springs Free Baptist Church was also founded by W. L. Gower and eventually Alex Rose was also a paster. This should be checked out to see if there is any connection to William H
- William H was a road overseer from Springfield to Sycamore Mills 185?
- Among the first church organizations of Cheatham was one of the Free-Will Baptists, established on Blue Spring Branch, near Sycamore Mills, by Rev. Robert Heaton. In Robert Heaton's journal, dated Jan 10, 1826, the name of Elizabeth Blankinship is listed among the members of the church at Marrowbone as well as W. L. Gower. I assume this is William's mother Elizabeth. About the same time, Vicks old meeting-house was erected in the Boston Hills, about four miles northeast of what is now Ashland City and Lowe's meeting-house was built about three miles north of Sycamore Mills. In 1835 Braxton Lee conveyed two acres of land, where this old log church still stands, to the following trustees: Gideon H. Lowe, Matthew Harris, Jonas Manafee, Thomas W. Shearon and himself, as a trustee. A part of this land has been and continues to be used as a public cemetery.
- I have been unsuccessful at tracing Fanny's marriage, and where the eldest son moved. Did he move to Nebraska?
- Gilbert is listed in the Marion Monitor 22 Feb 1876 as guardian of John Chamness's two children.
- A family story says he left TN during the Civil War because he was against slavery and was told by a neighbor that someone was coming to kill him that night. They fled. They stopped at one set of grandparents when they left. While they were sitting on the hill they could feel the cannon firing.
- W. H. signed a bond for A Rose along with Elizabeth S. Cochran (wife of John Cochran) in 1 Aug 1859 Cheatham Co. TN. Is A. Rose Alexander Rose b. 1801? He also bought several items during the estate sale in 1861.
- William's church in IL was Free Baptist Church at Freewill. He was named as pastor of a Free Will Baptist Church in his obituary when died in Cottage Home. This predates the church built by his son-in-law T.O. McMinn.
- Mahala's parents are Thomas and Rhoda
- Bascum suffered from Epilepsy
- One of the brothers left the area - was this the eldest?
- Luanna and Georgeanne were close - Luanna told the story of Georgeanne being called to testify at church meeting and her answer was “N0 - I feel cold tonight.” (They had young men waiting to take them for a buggy ride). Luanna was quite elegant and her son was a milliner and clothes designer from St. Louis.
- Fanny married in 1925-27 a third time and was living in Marion when she married. She said she had taken care of Georgeanne's children when she died and John B. got on a stump and started preaching. She knew he would become a preacher.
- I assume that WJR is the the eldest son although one census has the initials reversed. The marriage records are under WJR.
Immegrant Christopher Branch (Generation 12 below) descents from Henry ! King of England and his ancestors and therefore Charlemagne..

|Gen 17||John Braunche|
- John Braunche
- Abingdon on Thames or Abingdon-on-Thames, is a market town and civil parish in England.
- Worked from 1438 as a master carpenter on the building of All Souls College in Oxford. He was responsible for selecting and preparing the timber to be felled, and he may have been the designer of the hammer-beam roof in the chapel. Although his pay was only fractionally above that of the more skilled of the half dozen or so other carpenters employed, he was paid by the week and they by the day, so his income was probably more steady than theirs. He was almost certainly the John Braunche who leased property in 1438 from men whom we can recognise as leaders of the Fraternity or Guild of the Holy Cross, at that time not yet a chartered corporation. In 1440, John Braunche and his wife Avise (died 1490) took a house in West St Helen Street.

At the time of Amyce’s survey in 1554, Richard’s widow Elizabeth (about 1507 − 1556) was living in the Bury near the end of Lombard Street and deriving income from three adjoining properties in East St Helen Street, two of which, the present Nos. 55 and 51, still exist.
- Richard had 2 previous wives and some children and more children with Elizabeth
- Richard’s elder son Thomas owned the Bull Inn on the corner of Littlebury Street (about where the NatWest Bank is now) but he died in 1565 and left it to his brother William .

- William Gent Braunch was a woolen draper by trade and lived and practiced his trade in a house and shop on Littlebery Lane (now Bury Street). He was educated at the medieval grammar school in Stert Street. He served four times as Mayor of the town; in 1563-64, 1571-72, 1582-83, and from May to September of 1588 to complete the term of William Kysbie who died in office. He also served as a member of Parliament elected in 1593. William later became Governor of Christ's Hospital, started by the Branch family three generations earlier as the Fraternity of Holy Cross ( not a hospital in the medical sense but a hospitium, a place for giving of help to the poor and needy). William was a woollen draper like his father but also a maltster. Christ’s Hospital, had been established in 1553 to replace the old Fraternity. It was in William’s time that factional conflict broke out in both the Corporation and in Christ’s Hospital, and he played a major role in it. This resulted in his oldest son Thomas having his entry to these bodies delayed, so that he never achieved great distinction in them. Another son, Richard, became a clergyman and was rector of Hinton Waldrist and Longworth, while a third, Lionel, moved to London. In the next generation, the name of Braunche no longer appears among Corporation members and Hospital governors. Their position in Abingdon politics was taken up by a son-in-law.
- William Branch owned the Bull Inn in Littlebury. His will was proved in Prerogative Court of Canterbury on April 24, 1602. His family paid two shillings for the tolling of the knell with the great Belle at his funeral and six shillings and eight pence for his grave.

- Christopher Branch
- On 2 Jul 1585, he matriculated Magdalen College of Oxford University as a commoner, and graduated 11 Feb 1590.
- From all accounts, Lionel was the "black sheep" of the family. Called "my unthrifty and disobedient son" in his father's (William Branch) will and bequeathed merely "my black gown". Obviously, no love was lost between Lionel and his older brother, Thomas, either. Thus when Thomas made his will in 1603 he bequeathed nothing to Lionel and willed the valuable Bull Inn property of Abingdon to his brother-in-law, Robert Payne. William Branch, the younger brother of Lionel still at Oxford, felt that the natural male heirs of William Branch should inherit the Bull Inn and accordingly brought suit to upset the will, the cause being decided in favor of Robert Payne in February of 1603-4.
- Christopher Branch, the only son of Lionel Branch, returned briefly from his home in Henrico, Co. VA to Abingdon in 1632 with the same goal of having the ownership of the Bull Inn of Abingdon invalidated by a court suit. He was also unsuccessful.
- Thomas Branch b. Apr 1624 VA
- Christopher Branch (Line 1) b. VA
- William Branch (Line 2) b. VA
- Christopher and Mary Branch sailed to Virginia on the "London Merchant" in March 1620 with 200 people based on 1624 census.. This is the same year as the Mayflower in MA but is earlier in the year. They eventually settled at Kingsland Plantation on the south side of the James River in Henrico (now Chesterfield) Co. probably at Henricus.
- THE LIVING AND DEAD IN VIRGINIA. A LIST OF NAMES OF THE LIVING IN VIRGINIA, February the 16th, 1623 it is the earliest known such list. It lists Christopher Branch but not his wife although in the census on the following year it clearly states she was on the ship with him.
- North America's First Census The Virginia Colony Including Jamestown. January 16th 1624/1625 lists Christopher Branch, his wife Mary, and son Thomas 9 months.
- Christopher was a member of the House of Burgesses from Henrico Co. in 1629.
- On 20 Oct 1634, Christopher Branch patented 100 acres of land on the south side of the Appomattox River. In September 1636, he patented land in the same section as the first patent, and on December 18, 1636, he patented 250 acres known as Kingsland Plantation. Branch dealt with many matters from the early American tobacco industry.
- Remnants of Kingsland Plantation can be seen from Kingsland Road, which runs from Highway 5 across old Kingsland plantation to the James.
- Will dated 20 June 1678, probated in Henrico Co. VA 20 Feb 1681/82
- Christopher and his wife were among the scant sixty residents of the College Land who somehow, survived the massacre of 1622, and their oldest son, Thomas, was born on the heels of it..
- Extant Will 20 Jun 1678 probated 20 Sep 1681/82 at Henrico Co. VA "In the name of God Amen. The twentieth of June 1678. I Christopher Branch, of Kingsland, in the County of Henrico being in years and memory, praised be to God, do make this my Last Will and Testament as follows:: Item. I give my body unto the Earth from whence it came and my Soul unto my Savior Jesus Christ, who has bought it with his most precious blood. Item. I give unto my son Thomas Branch my great copper kettle and a book called Ursinis Catucis and I do confirm the two hundred and forty acres of land that I have given him by deed gift formerly. Item. I give unto my grandson Christopher Branch all the land between the river and the long slash, beginning at Proctors Creek mouth, and run upward on the river to the pine tree that parts my land and my son Thomas, and from Proctors Creek at the lower end of long slash on the inside of the slash running upward to my son Thomas’ land unto him and his heirs male forever, provided that he shall help to build for his brother, Samuel Branch a house [with] four lengths of board every length to be five foot with help of the Negro and Job. If they live until Samuel be of ability to help and to seat it, and to help him to clear a cornfield sufficiently fenced to keep out hogs and cattle.. Item. I give unto my grandson Samuel Branch all the land that lies between the long slash and the bottom called by the name Jacks Bottom, beginning at Proctors Creek and running upwards to my son Thomas’ land to him and his heirs male forever provided that he, with the help of Christopher and the Negro and Job, if it pleased God they live, do build Benjamin one house of four lengths of board every length of board to be five foot long, clear and fence him a cornfield so much as they do for Samuel, with his help when he shall be able to seat it.Item. I give unto my grandson Benjamin Branch all the land that lies between Jacks Bottom and Proctors Creek beginning at Proctors Creek and running upwards to my son Thomas’ land to him and his heirs male forever. It is my will that Christopher do give unto Samuel and Benjamin six locust posts and two elm posts a piece when they shall build them their dwelling houses if they can find none on their own ground. It is my will that any of these—Christopher, Samuel, or Benjamin—do die before they come to the age of one and twenty years then their land shall return to the next brother and the goods that they shall have out of my estate after my decease. It is my will that after my decease, my son Thomas shall pay unto Christopher the rent that shall be due unto his Majesty yearly for his two hundred and forty acres of land when it shall be demanded. Likewise, Mr. Gower, Samuel, and Benjamin when they shall seat their land. Item. It is my will that neither Samuel nor Benjamin go off the plantation but to live with Christopher and to have housing and ground and to work together until they be able to seat their own land unless they be willing to go off themselves. It is my will that my part of my Job’s labor, so long as he has to serve, shall go to maintain Samuel, Benjamin, and Sarah, and the half of the Negro’s labor go to maintain them. Item. It is my will that the cart way be not stopped up nor altered that now is to go into the woods for timber or for firewood but to have a clear passage. It is my will that William and John Branch shall have liberty to fish or fowl in the creeks or swamp. If Christopher shall refuse to help to build and clear for Samuel and Benjamin as I have set down in this my will, then he shall pay to Benjamin six hundred pounds of tobacco. Item: I give unto Thomas Jefferson one hogshead of tobacco of four hundred pounds weight whom I make with my grandson Christopher Branch my full and sole executors of this my last will and testament and I desire them to see my will truly performed, my debts and legacies being paid and burial discharged, all the rest of my estate I give unto my grandson Christopher Branch and Samuel and Benjamin and Sarah and Mary Branch, the wife of Thomas Jefferson to be equally divided among them. Witness my hand and seal the day and year above written. Christopher Branch Witnessed: Abel Gower Richard Ward
- On 1 December 1681 he signed a paper declaring the meaning of a formerly written deed giving 300 acres to his son Thomas Branch, and nine days later confirmed his grandson, Christopher Branch, his attorney for this action.
- Christopher returned briefly to England in 1632, going to court, proclaiming the Bull Inn in Abingdon ought, by rights, to be his, but of which he had been cheated by his uncle, Robert Payne. He stated in court that his father (Lionel Branch) died 27 years earlier when he himself was only two or three years old. Robert Payne's son, Richard, was the owner of Bull Inn at the time of the suit. Christopher's case stated that, by the terms of his great-uncle Thomas' will of 1565 the Bull Inn after descending to his grandfather William, and to his uncle, William's eldest son Thomas, should have descended to Christopher's father, Lionel, as heir at law of the younger Thomas, and so to Christopher after Lionel's death. Christopher was challenging the 1624 transfer of ownership of the Bull Inn by the younger Thomas to his brother-in-law, Robert Payne, as part of the settlement of his marriage. Unfortunately for Christopher, the transfer of ownership was upheld. Shortly after the hearing of this case, Richard Payne seems to have conveyed the Bull Inn to Christ Hospital of Abingdon, for numerous leases by the hospital dating from 1644-1856 are extant. This can be found at the Public Recds Off. Chancery Proceedings, Charles I Reign, Bundle B. 21, no. 34.
- As "Christopher Branch, Planter, of Arrowhattocks in Henrico County", he was granted a lease, 29 Oct 1634, for 21 years on 100 acres lying "east upon the maine River (the James)" [Patent Bk.1, p155]. The following year, 08 Dec 1635, he patented 250 acres "at Kingsland (his plantation) over against Arrowhattocks, east upon the maine River….adjacent to the land of John Griffin, now in the tenure of said Branch…50 acres for his own personal adventure and 200 acres for the transportation of 4 persons (headrights)[Patent Bk. 1, p155]. "By 28 Feb 1638/9, Branch's plantation numbered 450 acres after he had acquired an additional 100 acres through an exchange with James Place (see map near Kingsland) and the remaining acreage through additional "headrights" [Patent Bk. 1 pp381, 527, 634]. He accumulated a large plantation in the extreme northeast of Chesterfield Co., bounded upon the east by the James River and upon the south by Proctor's Creek. The present Kingsland Creek ran through his property (see map). He was a prosperous tobacco planter whose land holdings grew to 1,380 acres by the time of his death at the age of 80 (an exceptional age for the times).
- He was named in an Act of Assembly, 1639, as a "tobacco viewer from the World's End (see map) to Henrico", and was Burgess for the county the following year (1640), and justice of Henrico Co. in 1656. A "viewer of tobacco crop" was a sort of government quality inspector/appraiser. "World's End" was the name of Richard Perrin's plantation. Christopher's will read 20 Feb 1681, described him as "of Kingsland". Mary, his wife, had died many years before, about 1630, and there is no record of him remarrying. In 1640, when he was serving as Burgess, the House ordered all the bad tobacco and half the good tobacco be burned. This attempt to control the over supply left production for the year at only 1.5 million pounds.

When two of Benjamin's slaves there stole a hog from Edward Booker in 1742, Amelia Co. ordered thirty-nine lashes on their bare backs at the public whipping post. One slave's insolence would have earned him a year in jail if Branch had not put up a security bond. Another slave, Pompeii, ran off and Abraham Hurt, who caught him, made a public claim in August 1744.
- n 1756 Chesterfield Co. listed Benjamin on its tithable list with Thomas and Edward Branch and fifteen slaves.

- From the mid 14th century, if not before, the Colclough family enjoyed considerable influence in Newcastle and its environs. John’s father represented the borough in the Parliament of 1360, and subsequently held office as both bailiff and mayor.
- He served his first term as bailiff of Newcastle in 1377, and on at least four occasions over the next ten years he went surety for his successors in office. At some point before October 1379 he took on the lease of additional holdings in Wolstanton, where he appears to have been farming his father’s property as well..

- It appears that John and brothers Thomas and George Colclough became involved with Virginia trade in the early 1650s, in the wake of the execution of King Charles I and the Rump Parliament's October 1650 Act for Prohibiting Trade with the Barbadoes, Virginia, Bermuda and Antigua, which was intended to suppress royalist support for the pretender to the throne, the future King Charles II. This act of Parliament authorized ships to "surprise" and seize ships that "traffick with the rebels," providing for the fate of the seized ships to be decided at Admiralty courts.Thomas is repeatedly refered to as a Lonon merchant

|Parents||George Colclough||Elizabeth Keeling|
- John Colclough b. 1665
- Charles Colclough m. Hannah Chapman
- Benjamin Colclough
- In 1654 John Colclough was the master or owner of a vessel which traded regularly with Virginia. (18 V. 47-48).
- The restoration of of the monarchy in England in 1660 presumably put an end to the Colclough brothers' involvement in pursuing royalist smugglers. It seems to be around this time that John Colclough moved to Lancaster County: On 2 March 1660(/1?), Edward Webb of Lancaster County sold half of a 220-acre tract to John Colclough, together with "halfe of the housing and halfe of the orchard." The land bordered Barbecue Creek and a branch of the Pieankitank River. John wasn't identified as a resident of Lancaster County on this record, but when he sold the land on 27 Aug. 1660, he identified himself as a "planter of the County of Lancaster and the Parish of Pieankitank."
- John first appears in the Stafford court records in September 1664 (having bought land there shortly before)
- 12 Oct 1664 John buys a tract of land from Colo. Ffooke 400 lb Tobo
- On 22 Oct. 1665, John Colclough received 500 acres in Stafford County for transporting ten people into Virginia.
- 6 Jun 1665 John received another 200 acres on Quanticutt Creek for transporting four people into Virginia. John Colclough's page at the Early Settlers of Colonial Maryland and Virginia's Northern Neck Counties website, citing Cavaliers and Pioneers, p. 544.
- It appears that the maiden name of John Colclough's wife Mary was Partridge (although there are those who claim Rivet as her maiden name). Mary Colclough appears to have been one of four sisters, one of whom -- Sarah Willson -- was elsewhere identified as the sister and heir of Samuel Partridge.

The proportion of victualls brought for these 100 men fell so short that the Governor and Council advised 50 should be boarded out at the rate of 3 barrels of corn and 55 lbs. of tobacco per man. By these means the men will be able to proceed to their own business next year nd can reach neewcomers. About 25 men have gone with Captain Mathewes 3 miles from Henrico, 25 with Mr. whithakers within 4 miles of James City on the company's land.

After leading a counterattack on the Indians after the 1622 raid, he was promoted to Captain and is mostly known as Captain Thomas Osborne of Henrico, VA. He patented land on the James River just north of Henricus, VA, which became known as Coxendale, where his family lived for five generations before beginning their migration south into NC and SC. There is still a Coxendale Road in Chester, VA which leads to the general vicinity of the old Coxendale plantation.
- After the March 1622 attack by the Indians, where roughly one-third of those settlers between Jamestown and Henricus City were killed, Lieut. Thomas Osborne lead a retaliatory attack; from this point onward, he appears in the records as Captain Thomas Osborne. From 1625-1633 he served in the House of Burgesses and, having been granted a large tract of land known as Coxendale, settled there around 1625. The first town in Coxendale, Gatesville, was later named Osbornes and became an important inspection, storage, and shipping center for tobacco well into the late 19th century.

|Gen 9||Henry Tapscott||Ann Edney|
|Birth||24 Aug 1685 England probably Somerset or Devon||Northumberland Co. VA||ca 1688-95|
|Death||12 Apr 1727||Buckingham Co. VA||1772 or later|
|Parents||James Edney d.1698||? Chowder|
- Edney Tapscott
- Henry Capt Tapscott
- James Tapscott
- female Tapscott
- female Tapscott
- Henry immigrates at the age of 14 on the William and Oriana from Bristol and arrives Potomac River VA 12 Jan 1699/1700. He had a paid passage. He left his mother and was much younger than normal and intended to return to England. But when he arrived he wanted to stay and he then becomes indentured to Alexander Swann after Swann wrote to his mother for permission..
- 1706 his indenture ended at age 21 although Swann tried to fight it ending.
- Ann's father James Edney arrived by 16 Aug 1682 Thomas Winter received a headright listing Jam. Edney. He and Thomas Winter were neighbors and on documents together. Winter was one who did the inventory upon his death. It is unlikely he came as an indentured servant as he had an estate a short time after arriving. He died by 15 June 1698 when Thomas Chowder claimed next of kin and was made administer of his estate.
- Thomas Chowder died around Jul 1709 and she probably lived with him until his death. On 17 Aug 1709 Anne selected Anthony Haynie as her guardian. Anthonie Haynie became ill and made his will 31 Jan 1709/10. 15 Mar Jan 1709/10 and selected George Ball his son-in-law as guardian. George Ball's first cousin Mary Ball was George Washington's mother. This was probably for financial support as Anne would not have been in the same social class as the Balls. Thomas Chowder ran up a lot of debts and Anne did not receive a lot of her inheritance.

- George selected Benjamin George to be his guardian after his father's death.
- Sometime before 1787, George with his family and his brother, Henry, moved 150 miles from Lancaster Co. to Buckingham Co. which lies south of the James River in the Piedmont.
- On 2 August 1787 George Tapscott received a patent for 263 acres lying “among the South branches of Rock Island Creek” in Buckingham CO.2142 The following day, George’s second patent, for 510 acres along “Howards Road,” was recorded. This road is almost certainly “Benjamin Howard’s Road,” mentioned in both a survey and a land grant record.
- The Buckingham Co. personal property tax list for 1787 showed George with two slaves of age sixteen or above, three below age sixteen, two horses, and four head of cattle. This is similar to averages for the CO; however, during the few years he lived there, George amassed a sizable amount of land, most or all near Rock Island Creek. At the time of his death, he had 1300 acres of land, of which 500 acres were to be sold. The remainder was to be left to his wife to raise the children and then sold, with the money divided among them.
