41) March 20, 1762 William Going receives 240 acres of land in Bedford County, Virginia.  The deed is not recorded until 1780, (Note: which is not uncommon.  When I called the South Carolina Archives about another Gowen, when trying to find deed records and transactions, they informed me that often people would never record their deed at all.  They would receive the deed, live on the land a few years, then sell it to the next person who may do the same.  Eventually someone would record the deed, but there may be several buyers and sellers between who don’t record it.  The fact that William Gowen waited until 1780 to record may mean he possibly had a dispute (trespass lawsuit or threat of a trespass lawsuit, over boundaries, etc.) where he wanted the court to be clear he was the owner.  Or possibly he was considering selling to someone who wanted the deed recorded):

130) 1767 May 8 – “Thomas Going and James Going were mentioned in a deposition given by Charles Griffith in Fairfax County May 8, 1767, according to “Patents and Northern Neck Grants in Fairfax County, Virginia” by Beth Mitchell.
“The deposition of Charles Griffith, aged 70 years or thereabouts of Loudoun County, formerly of Stafford County, now called Fairfax County, taken between John Carlyle, plaintiff and Charles Alexander, defendant, the 8th day of May 1767.
The deponent, first being sworn for the Defendant, Charles Alexander, saith that:
“About 43 years ago I was Overseer for one Phillip Noland. Maj. Robert Alexander, grandfather to the present Charles Alexander, came up from Boyeshole . . . and the said Noland then told Alexander that one Robertson, the Goings, and several others had surveyed and taken-up land within his great Patent, upon which the said Alexander, seeming angry, swore . . . but this Deponent further saith that when Noland told Maj. Robert Alexander that the Goings were taking and surveying his, the said Alexander’s land, he, the said Alexander, replied to the said Noland that he had a great mind to turn the Molatto [sic] rascals off his land . . . and this Deponent further saith old Col. Mason, father to the present one, John Straughan, Richard Wheeler, Thomas Chapman, Peter Guin and several other old Standards whose names he does not at present recollect to him, this Deponent, that the beginning of Alexander’s land was opposite the said Mason’s Island, upon the mouth opposite a branch and that from that branch it ran into the woods two miles.
He, this Deponent, further saith that he well remembers he was at a Race in the same year where the Goings were [who then had running horses] and that the old people were talking about the Goings taking up Alexander’s land and selling it to Thomas and Todd which land the old people then said was in Alexander’s back line or at least the greatest part. He well remembers that at the same time the old people said as soon as Alexander should make a survey, they would find it was Alexander’s land and they would loose the greatest part of it, at the same time this Deponent saith the people were laughing and said if it were not for Alexander’s land the Goings had sold to Thomas and Todd they, the said Goings would not be so lavish of their money of which they seemed to have a great plenty at that time, being asked by the Pltf. at what time it was that he rode with Mr. Hugh West when he was Deputy Sheriff. He says that it was in the year 1726 or 1727 as well as he remembers . . . He says that Tom Going confessed that Robert Alexander held that said line, but he was of the opinion that he would not be allowed to hold more than his papers mentioned, the Deponent says that James Going told Pearson of it and had it not been for the Speeches and Pearson and some of the Neighbors concerning the back line of Alexander, they would not have sold their rights. This conversation he says happened some years after Pearson shewed the aforesaid back line and he remembers that Going asked Pearson how he came to possess himself of some of the same kind of land and Pearson told him that he was safe in purchasing as the man was able to make him whole in case it should be taken from him . . . ”
The deposition was transcribed in “Land Records of Long Standing, Fairfax County Virginia, 1742-1770” By Ruth and Sam Sparacio. The deposition is revealing for several reasons:
1726 or 1727
1. It locates Thomas Going and James Going living on their 1,215 acres of land on Four Mile Creek adjacent to Alexander land. It shows that they were not living on the land on Spout Run, for it was separated from Alexander land by that of Ousley. It suggests that James Going was still living with his parents, and probably was the youngest son. It also suggests that the other two brothers, John Going and William Going were not living with their parents at that time.
2. Alexander’s reference to “mulatto rascals” raises the question: Was he speaking in anger, or was he actually describing skin color?
“Thomas and Todd” mentioned by the deponent owned 1,215 acres of land in Stafford County on Four Mile Creek adjoining the land of Robert Alexander on August 3, 1719 which was land “formerly surveyed for Thomas, James, John and William Goins,” according to “Virginia Northern Neck Land Grants, 1694-1742.”
Fairfax Co (formerly Stafford Co), Va.
(Shows the Goings, including James, lived near John Straughan – who took in 10 yr old orphaned William Gowen as an apprentice in 1737 – possible family relationship?).

Background of case (from what the Plaintiff’s pleadings indicate):
The Alexander family had received a 6000 acre plot of land from Theodorick Bland in
In 1748 an Act was passed to create the city of Alexandria – starting with 60 acres of land. The city was a success. As it grew, the land around it became more valuable.
Charles Alexander inherited much of the rest of the land back in 1735.
In 1735 Robert Alexander died. He had a 6000 acre tract in the area. He left 400 acres of this land to his daughter Porthenia Alexander, who later married Dade and then Massey.
Around 1766, Charles Alexander tried to rent to tenants on parts of the land that were outside the bounds of the tract. Admiral Seekright/Carlyle filed suit against Charles Alexander and received a judgment against him to eject Charles Alexander’s tenants (and him as well) who were illegally on Admiral Seekright’s land, and established where Alexander’s line should be. The judgment also included damages against Charles Alexander of one shilling, plus costs of 50L.121, plus 15,372 lbs of tobacco. Charles Alexander was attempting to claim land beyond the bounds of the plat, and claiming that land belonged to him. John Carlyle also won his case against Charles Alexander, establishing a “line” where the Alexander land ended.
In what appears to be a legal maneuver to overturn the prior cases against him (and gain access to land beyond his line), Charles Alexander then filed multiple other suits of ejectment in other courts against other tenants who were actually clearly on his land. In these other suits, it appears these courts in 1786 did not know of the prior cases establishing the line, and they went along with what Charles Alexander said his line should be (which was beyond the line that the courts in 1771 said his land should be).
Porthenia Alexander never received a deed for her inheritance of 400 acres. Her mother, Sarah, had a “life estate” on the 400 acres until she passed away. When she did pass away, Porthenia asked for her deed to her inheritance. Charles Alexander, the heir at law to the estate, did not want to give her one. When he finally did, he gave her a deed to land that was beyond the line of the tract – Charles Alexander claimed this was part of the estate. Porthenia filed suit to get land that was actually on the estate.
The part of the case involving Thomas Gowing’s land involved the land he had sold to Evan Thomas and Todd. Since the Gowing’s purchased the land around 1710, and sold it to Thomas and Todd in 1719, and then Thomas and Todd lived there for a time after, part of the claim appears to be that of “adverse possession” – that the Alexanders never claimed this land as theirs until after Alexandria became successful and the land became more valuable. Charles Alexander tried to produce witnesses to say that Robert Alexander was indeed running tenants on the said land, and that Gowing, Thomas, Todd, and others knew it. Charles Alexander seems to be arguing that even if his plat did not run to the area in dispute, that he ran tenants on that land for such a long time, and that everyone knew it, so therefore he is the owner by adverse possession.
The jury found against Charles Alexander – they heard the evidence, and must not have believed those witnesses that were saying that the Alexander family openly showing ownership of the land in dispute. From the evidence, it appears just the opposite. Others had lived on the disputed lands since 1710 or before, and continued to do so up until the 1760’s – when Charles Alexander decided to make a move on land outside the bounds of his tract.
