Earliest Arrival of people with the surname of Gowing to the South in the Americas:

The surname of “Gowing” arrived in Virginia in the Americas as early as 1633-35.   On July 4, 1635 a Brian Gawyn (or McGawyn per some sources) age 3 yrs is listed as transported on the “Transport” of London (ship) to Virginia.  Thomas Gowen was transported to Virginia in August 1635 on the “Globe”.   On Sept 28, 1635, John Gowing was transported by Thomas Crompe to land near Richard Buck (who lived near James Town, Va).

1635 snip of John Gowing transp to Va by Crompe(Notes 1, 2, 3, & 4).

No records have been located that note any other arrivals by those with “Gowing” type surnames until about 1650.

Arrivals in the 1650s:  

Both a John Goane and a William Gowin arrive in Virginia in the 1650s, and both appear to be in the York County, Virginia area.  John Goane appears to have arrived from Maryland – likely he left for Maryland shortly after arriving in 1635, either on his own, or as an indentured servant.  William Gowin arrived in York County Virginia in 1653, and may have come from Maryland as well.   There was a large movement of people from Maryland to Virginia in the 1650s.  In 1650, the Puritans in Maryland revolted against the proprietary government, they set up a new government prohibiting both Catholicism and Anglicanism.  William Stone, the Governor of Maryland, was exiled to Virginia during the revolt.   The Puritan revolt lasted in Maryland until 1658, when the Calvert family regained control and reinacted the religious “Toleration Act”.

October 18, 1650 a John Goane is transported to Virginia by a Walter Broadhurst, Gent., who receives 500 acres on the S. side of the “Potomeck” R. near the mouth of Canowoman Creek. Others transported were William Hardigg, Robert Beard, William Enson, Ann Knowles, Richard Broadman, Humphrey Farmar, John Piper, Richard Sabrell, and 2 Indians.  (See note 9 below).    Obviously, the “2 Indians” were not transported to Virginia from England or Europe – they had to be transported from another location in the Americas.  Looking at the others listed as being transported, William Hardigg, John Piper, Robert Beard, Richard Sabrell – all these people are noted in documentation related to Maryland.  (See:  John Hollis 1612 to 1615).

April 14, 1653 a William Gowin is transported to York County, Virginia by Mr. William Hoccaday, who receives 1000 acres in York County, Virginia near the head of Ware Creek and Warany Creek.  (See note 12).

John Gowen is the master to servant Arthur Severne in York County, Virginia in 1661 (See note 16).  The John “Goane” who was transported from Maryland to Virginia may be this same person, and may have moved to York County, Virginia around the same time as William Gowin arrived there in 1653.

Other Gowen surnames in the Virginia/Maryland area in the 1650s-1660s:

a) On October 25, 1657 a Mihill Gowen, a black servant, receives his freedom in Virginia.  His master, Christopher Stafford, had died in 1654.  Mihill Gowen had belonged to Robert Stafford prior to this, and according to Christopher Stafford’s sister, Amy Barnhouse, their uncle had stated in his will that Mihill Gowen should be released as he had completed his 4 years of service.  This estimates that Mihill Gowen arrived by or before 1650 in the Americas.   Amy Barnhouse appears to have inherited the rights to Mihill Gowen and gave him his freedom in 1657.  Amy Barnhouse’s records also indicate that Mihill Gowen had a son born in 1655 named William (by a black servant named Prossa).  Son William was given his freedom at that same time, but Prossa continued to be a servant to Amy Barnhouse.   (See note 14).

On February 8, 1668 Mihill Gowree (Gowen) received a 30 to 40 acre deed from Capt Barnhouse in James City County, Virginia.  Mihil Gowen died, apparently November 24, 1708, and the property was transferred, 37 acres of escheat land, to Robert Hubbard February 2, 1718.  (See note 22).

It appears that there are at least 2 lines of “Gowen” families in Virginia at this point.  Mihill Gowen’s line in James City County, Virginia, and John and William Gowen in York County, Virginia’s line.

b) On November 8, 1659, Stephen Gawen, a shoemaker from Westbury, Wiltshire, England, was working on a 4 year indenture to Richard Lock in Bristol Parish, Virginia.   (See note 16).

c) In 1660 a Clement Gaun is transported to Maryland.  (See note 17).

Back to York County, Virginia:

Some time in 1661-62 a certificate is granted to Maj. Joseph Croshaw for 800 acres of land for importation of 16 persons including a Jane Gowin in York County, Virginia. (See note 19).

March 1, 1668 a John Gawen is born to parents William and Ann Gawen in Charles Parish Virginia. (See note 23).

Movement and Arrivals in the 1670s:  

Several Gowing surnames are noted in the 1670s – some in the York County, Virginia area, and several appearing to be transported to Maryland.

Maryland:

In Talbot County, Maryland:  On May 13, 1671 Frances Stannton received 500 acres for transporting 10 people, including a Thomas Going, to Talbot County, Maryland.  (See note 24).   Also in Talbot County, Maryland, in 1672 Anne, the wife of Esau Goeing proved rights to land for service provided in Talbot County, Maryland. Esau Goeing assigned his wife’s rights for her service to John Pitt in Talbot County, Maryland.   It appears Esau Goeing married Anne after she had completed her indenture and was owed for her service.  He appears to have sold the rights to his wife’s indenture to John Pitt. (See note 26).

Esau Goeing appears again in records in Westmoreland County, Virginia records on May 31, 1693.  Gawin Corbin attached a debt Esau Goeing owed to him to a horse, and sold that horse to satisfy the debt.  It appears from the records that Esau Goeing had left the county.  An Abraham Smith was noted as having possession of the bridle and saddle of Esau Goeing.  (See note 83).    On April 7, 1693 (about a month earlier), Abrham Smith had dismissed a lawsuit he had against Thomas Going in Westmoreland County, Virginia.  (See note 84).   It appears these may be the same Thomas Going and Esau Goeing who were in Maryland in the early 1670s, but had gone back to Virginia by the 1690s.

In 1675 William Goun is transported to Maryland.  (See note 31).

In 1679, it appears that John Goane is transported to St. Maries County, Maryland.  (See note 40).

In or near York County, Virginia:

In 1672  Elizabeth Gowing is indentured to William Temple for 5 years in Virginia. Records appear to indicate that William Temple’s family lived near Essex County, Virginia.  (See note 25).

On June 24, 1673, 24 year old Christopher Gowin gives a deposition in York County, Virginia regarding his “master’s mares”, indicating he is serving an indenture at that time. (See notes 27 and 28).   Later records show that Christopher Gowen was married to Anne by January 1679 when his son Michael Gowen was noted born in the Abindon Parish Register (which served Gloucester Co, Va).  (See note 37).

On July 24, 1674, John Gawen is noted in York County, Virginia as a witness to deed. (See note 30).

On May 1, 1679 Daniel Gowen receives a patent for 100 acres in Kingston Parish, Gloucester County, “adjoining his own land,” and a Henry Preston.  Daniel Gowen received another grant of 52 acres April 26, 1698.  (See note 38).

1680s-1690s in Virginia:

Gawen Gawin:  On April 20, 1682 a Gawen Gawin receives a 1000 acre grant on the s side of Totopottomoys Cr in New Kent Co, Va. (43).

Henry Going:  On June 3, 1689, Henry Going is granted 50 acres from Thomas and Grace Arnold on  west side of Main branch of Ginateque Creek and run west to line of Prosser in Rappahannock County, Virginia. (65).  On September 3, 1689, Grace Arnold, wife of Thomas Arnold, appointed Joseph Beckley power of attorney regarding her “third of the tract sold to Henry Going”. (68).

James Gowen:  In early 1690 (need exact date), James Gawen is in a lawsuit against a Richard Davis who noshowed a court date in York Couty, Virginia. (75).

Thomas Goen:  April 7, 1693, in the case of “Abraham Smith vs. Thomas Goen,” Smith appeared in court and “withdrew in person” the charge against the defendant in Westmoreland County, Virginia. (82). This is the first of many cases involving Thomas Goen in Westmoreland County, Virginia from 1693 to 1711.

99) 1697 July 28, – “Thomas Goen” received a judgment against Joseph Bragg in the amount of 1,300 pounds of tobacco.
http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~gowenrf/gowenms002.pdf

100) 1697 September 29, – “Thomas Goen confessed judgment” to Charles Lucas in the amount of 1,250 pounds of tobacco “due by bill.” http://www.freeafricanamericans.com/westmore.htm ; http://www.freeafricanamericans.com/Gibson_Gowen.htm

Esau Goeing:  On May 31, 1693, Esau Goeing was indebted to Gawin Corbin.  He was no longer in the county, so the sheriff attached a horse belonging to Esau Goeing to pay the debt.  Also noted was a bridle and saddle of Esau Goeing in the hands of Abraham Smith. Mr. James Ellis confirmed the debt of Esau Goeing to Gawin Corbin.  (83).

It appears that this is the same Esau Goeing who appeared in Talbot County, Maryland, in 1672.  In that case, Anne, the wife of Esau Goeing proved rights to land for service provided in Talbot County, Maryland. Esau Goeing assigned his wife’s rights for her service to John Pitt in Talbot County, Maryland.  (26).  (Note:  This transaction tells us a few things a) Anne Goeing was owed for her service – likely this was an indenture, meaning she arrived at least 4 years earlier (1668 or before). Since she was married, and selling her rights to her service, she was now free.  b) Esau Goeing married Anne Goeing, and as her husband, he was selling her rights due to her for her service.  Since he was contracting and married, he obviously was not under any indenture either – no documents have indicated Esau ever was a servant, nor have any documents indicated when Esau Goeing arrived in the Americas.  He may have been born in the Americas.  c) Relationship to Thomas Going – it appears there “may” be some relationship with Thomas Going.  Both Thomas and Esau appear in records in Talbot County, Maryland about 1671/72.  Both then appear in records in Westmoreland County, Virginia in 1693.  This “suggests” they are related in some fashion, but it is unknown how).

Cornelius Gowin and James Gowin:  January 1, 1694, Cornelius Gowin is transported to the Pasquotank Precinct by a Richard Cragge (88).   On April 20, 1694 Mathew Kelly had been assigned Richard Cragge’s rights for transporting Cornelius Gowin. (89).   James Gowin is listed among Richard Cragge’s headrights in April of 1694, along with Cornelius Gowin.  (90).   Then on July 11, 1694, Richard Craig must have reaquired his rights, and then submits them again, this time listing both Cornelius Gowin and James Gowin among his headrights for persons transported to Albemarle. (91).

Mr. Goyne (no first name given):  On November 10, 1696, Mr. Goyne owns land on N. side of Potomac at Peckawaxen adjacent to Walter Story, Thos Batchellor, Steven Parker, near Wm. Herbert in Charles Co, MD.  (97).

Daniel Gowin:  On April 26, 1698, Daniel Gowin receives 52 acres adjoining the land of Henry Preston, Ambrose Dudley and Capt. Ranson in Gloucester County, Virginia.  (102).

Previously, it appears the same Daniel Gowin was granted land.  On May 1, 1679, Daniel “Gohon” receives a patent to 100 acres adjoining his own land, and a Henry Preston in Gloucester County, Virginia. (38).

William Goaine:   In 1699 a William Goaine was recorded in 1699 living “on the north side of the Patapsco River,” in Patapsco Hundred, according to the parish tax list in Baltimore County, Maryland. (104).  In March of 1699, the inventory of Capt. John Ferry lists a William Goyne servant, with 3 years left to serve in Baltimore County, Maryland. (105).  Thomas Todd appears to be given all of John Ferry’s inventory, including servants, in his will.  Since William Goyne is listed in the inventory as a servant, it can be assumed that Thomas Todd became the owner of William Goyne’s indenture for the next 3 years.   In 1719, a John Todd purchases 1215 acres of land from Thomas, John, William and James Goin in Stafford County, Maryland.

John Gowen:  York County, Virginia in the 1680s-1690s:  

John Gowen (Gawen) is mentioned in York County, Virginia records from 1661 to 1698.  Records include John Gowen working with several estates being an auditor in the case of Joseph Topping v. Thomas Mountfort (50), an auditor in the case of Daniel Parks and James Whaley (56),  posting bond for the estate of Francis Hurd (60), appraising the estate of John Donnell and appraising John Donnell’s inventory and filing the return for the appraisal with the court (64, 66, 72), appraising the estate of Rowland Jones and filing a return for the appraisal (69 and 70),  an order to appraise the estate of John Daniel and making a division of the estate of John Daniel (62 and 73).

John Gowen (Gawen) is also involved in several lawsuits between 1683 t0 1690, including receiving an order against Capt. Mathew Trim (51), an order to pay Capt. Mathew Trim (52), an order against George Glascock for nonappearance (53), a judgment George Glascock (54 and 55), an order against Edward Malen for nonappearance (57), an attachment against the estate of Edward Maylen (58), a judgment against Edward Hayton (61), a judgment against Thomas Ballard Jr and john Weymon who are executors of Edward Jones (63), a nonsuite of John Farre’s lawsuit against him (71), a judgment against Richard Rogers (74), an order for the nonappearance of Richard Davis (75), an attachment against the estate of John Spillman (76), an order against Joseph Fryth for nonappearance and then a judgment against Joseph Fryth on March 24, 1690.  (77 and 79).

Miscellaneous records involving John Gowen include a record showing he had been an ordinary keeper (59), receiving land bounding Reedy Swamp from Henry Thompson and Mary his wife (67), paying a debt in the inventory and estate of Robert Cobbs (42), mentioned as the master of servant John Marshall (45), swearing to the account of Mr. Andrew Cole (46), and as listed in the estate records of George Hubank (47).

Last note of John Gowen being in York County, Virginia:  On February 24, 1691, defendant John Gowen receives a continuance in a York County, Virginia case due to him being sick.  The plaintiff in the case is Samuel Dean.  In an Isle of Wight County, Virginia case, Samuel Dean, plaintiff, receives a judgment against John Gowen for his nonappearance in court on October 19, 1691.  (79a and 80).

From 1691 to 1695 there are cases in York County, Virginia that mention John Gowen, where he has assigned his cause of action to another person – June 3, 1691 Thomas Thorpe has been assigned a debt due to John Gowen from Thomas Ballard.  (79b).  September 25, 1693 a Martin Gardner has been assigned a debt due John Gowen against John Spelman – Gardner had in turn assigned the debt to Hugh Owen.  (84 and 84a).   June 24, 1695 Mrs. Sarah Smyth, admnx of William Smyth assignee of John Gowen, sues a Roger Jones the alleged debtor.  (93, 94, 95, and 96).  The last mention of John Gowen is where Daniell Park receives 30 acres of land escheated from John Gowen on April 26, 1698. (101)  – – –

None of these cases indicate that John Gowen is deceased . . . but they all appear to “suggest” he is no longer in York County, Virginia – as he is not personally involved in the cases in any way.  The last case that confirms he is still in York County, Virginia is on March 24, 1690 where he receives a judgment against Joseph Fryth.  (79).  The continuance on February 24, 1691 (79a) suggests he may still be in York County, Virginia, but it also can suggest that he is out of the County and since he is sick and out of county, it would be too difficult to travel for the court case.  This February 24, 1691 entry is also the last entry that confirms John Gowen is still alive – but sick.  He may have died shortly after this.  The “assigned” cases from 1691 to 1695 do not confirm if he is alive or dead.

Source: McIlwaine, ed., Minutes of the Council and General Court of Colonial Virginia, p. 441. http://www.virtualjamestown.org/practise.html This document provides a unique look at the status of African laborers in Virginia by clearly illustrating that fixed terms of indentured servitude existed, but also that they could be violated. In 1675 Phillip Gowen, an African American indentured servant, petitioned the governor of Virginia for release from servitude. In his petition, Gowen gave a detailed history of his life in bondage and the injustice he was currently experiencing. In 1664, Amy Beazley, Gowen’s original owner, provided in her will that after serving her nephew, Humphrey Stafford, for eight years, Gowen was to be set free and given the usual “freedom dues” for an indenture, corn and a set of clothes.
Gowen indicated that Stafford sold him and his remaining indentured time to Charles Lucas. Gowen claimed that Lucas, instead of freeing him at the end of his eighth year of servitude, forced him to serve three additional years. Even worse, Gowen claimed that Lucas threatened him and forced him to sign an indenture for another twenty years.
Indentured servants, both black and white, were subject to exploitation by their masters. Many could not read and write, which made their situations even more challenging. This document was probably written by an attorney on behalf of Phillip Gowen because it follows the traditional form of petitions of the time, with which, as a servant, Gowen himself probably would not have been familiar. Despite their low status, servants did have the right to petition the courts for help, as this document shows. Records indicate that the General Court of Virginia freed Gowen on June 16, 1675, and ordered Lucas to pay him three barrels of corn and court costs. The court also invalidated the twenty-year indenture Gowen claimed that Lucas had forced him to sign that was on file with the Warwick County Court.
Phillip Gowen’s petition offers a window to explore the development of chattel slavery in colonial America. While Africans were brought to North America as captives, most were treated like indentured servants and were freed after their terms of service. Gradually, during the 17th and 18th century, Virginia began to pass laws that made slavery—servitude for life—a reality for most people of African descent. Below is a brief timeline of such legislation and legal cases which show a decrease in freedom for African Americans:
• 1639—African Americans were excluded from being required to have firearms.
• 1640—John Punch, an African American indentured servant, was sentenced to a life of servitude after being caught running away from his master. The two white men who were with him only received one additional year on their indentures.
• 1643—Owners were taxed on African American women, but not white women laborers.
• 1662—The law declared that a person’s status depends on the status of the mother. This meant that children born to enslaved women would be slaves for life, under the law.
• 1667—The law declared that being a baptized a Christian did not change a person’s status as a servant or slave.
• 1669—A new law was established that it was not a punishable crime for a master to kill a slave in the process of “correcting” that slave.
• 1705—The law provided that “Negro, Mulatto, and Indians slaves” were considered to be property, or real estate, under the law. This same statute also declared that all Africans were considered to be slaves.

PHILLIP GOWEN PETITION, JUNE 16, 1675
The practice of indentured servitude in England grew out of older feudal systems and apprenticeship practices that had their roots in the Middle Ages. The Virginia Company of London contracted with the first Virginia settlers for their labor, and, when the Company started trading land for service and tobacco became the first profitable cash crop, Virginia’s style of indentured servitude coalesced. By the 1620s, a standard system had been put into place whereby servants negotiated the terms of their indentures with a merchant, ship’s captain, or other agent before sailing to Virginia. Their indentures were then sold to planters when the servants arrived in the colony.
The beginning of lifelong servitude or slavery in Virginia is very hard to trace. There is evidence that Africans may have already been in the colony before the first documented appearance of them in John Rolfe’s 1619 letter, which mentions, “20. and odd Negroes” arriving in Jamestown. Whether or not a person of African descent was held in slavery was a matter of circumstances unclear to modern historians. The person’s status as a Christian or a non-Christian, and whether or not the person had previously been enslaved definitely affected how he or she was treated in the colony. The most important thing to note is that some African Virginians were not held as slaves at the beginning of the colony’s history. Although many of the laws restricting African Virginians were passed in the 1660s, slavery did not become codified in Virginia law until 1705.
Phillip Gowen was the son of Mihill Gowen, a free African Virginian, who had once worked for Amye Beazlye, the woman who had freed Phillip in her will. This petition to Governor William Berkeley and the Council of State was probably written for Gowen by a person familiar with the petitioning process; the document makes use of standard structure and language of petitions from that era. Gowen sought relief from his new master, whom he declared was attempting to prolong his servitude. After reviewing the petition, the governor and council ordered that Gowen be freed. This document gives an example of the precarious situation of African Americans in the early colony before slavery was completely institutionalized.

34) 1677 to 1685 Father Thomas Gawen, a Jesuit Catholic from England was sent to Maryland before returning to England.  A John Gawen of his order, who was thought to be a relative, was one of 5 who were executed by the Crown in England.  He was executed on June 30, 1679.   The College of St. Chad, or the Staffordshire District.  Print: p. 473.

“Dr. Oliver, in his brief notice of this martyr, asks if he “was not closely connected with that noble confessor of the faith, Thomas Gavan or Gawen, of Norrington, Wilts, Esq.”
From the ” Greate Rolle of Th’ Excheqr for the yeare of our Lord MDCLVIL,” we learn that his farm of Norrington and Trowe, of the yearly value of £400, and his messuage called
Hurdcott, of the yearly value of £ido, had been sequestered for Popish recusancy in two-thirds of the said yearly rents, viz., ^378 6s. 8d., from the 31st of July, 1647, until his pious death, June 1st, 1656. ” He took with joy,” continues Dr. Oliver, ” the spoiling of his property, knowing that he would have a better and a lasting substance.”

It seems, indeed, probable that Father John Gawen or Gavan was a near relative, but in what degree of consan guinity we do not know. The short pedigree subjoined gives no member of the family of the name of John.

The Gavan family suffered much for their recusancy. In the State Paper Office is a ” Notification concerning grants of land forfeited by recusants, October, 1605,” as well as another called ” A note of such recusants as his Majesty hath granted liberty to his servants to make profit of” &c. To E. F. (amongst others) is granted ” for to make profit of, Catherine Gawen, widow.” This was Mrs. Gawen (Waldegrave) named in the pedigree. To Mr. Stephen le Sieur, ” Mr. Gawen, son and heir of Thomas Gawen of Norrington, county Wilts.”

The Hacon family, as the pedigree shows, was connected with the Gawens.

There were nuns of the name of Hacon at Louvain ; and a Mrs. Berkeley of Spetchley belonged to the same family. Hoare’s History of Wilts (compiled by Lord Arundell of
Wardour and Sir R Colt Hoare), says : ” The Gawen family held Hurdcot in Baverstock parish till 1708, when they sold h.” Mr. Swayne, about 1829, wrote to the compilers of this
History, “I am not aware of the existence of any person of the name of Gawen at present. The last of that name was father of Mrs. Roberts, who resided at South Newton about thirty years ago, and is since dead.”

Father Thomas Gavan, who is noticed at the foot of the above pedigree with Father John Gavan (probably sons of Thomas or Lawrence Gawen, the sons of Thomas and Gertrude)
was born in London in 1646, and entered the Society of Jesus in 1670. After completing his noviceship and higher studies, and receiving Holy Orders, he was sent to Maryland in 1677.  He returned to England in 1685, was missioner for a time at Thelton, in the College of the Holy Apostles, and was professed August 15th, 1686. In 1701 he was serving the mission in the College of St. Thomas of Canterbury, and in that of St. Francis Xavier in 1704- He died in Lincolnshire, June 4th, 1712.

Father Henry Gawen, or Gavan, we have placed in the pedigree as probably the son of Thomas. He was born in 1667, entered the Society in 1685, and died at Liege, May 12th, 1701, aet. 34.

The Diary of the English College mentions a William Gawen, son of William Gawen and Winefred Codrington, of Wilts, who was admitted to the scholar’s gown at the age of thirty-two, on June 16th, 1714. He received Confirmation in England from Bishop Leyburn, Vicar-Apostolic. After taking the College oath and receiving Minor Orders,
he left Rome for England on certain matters of business, October 26th, 1716. In the Year of Jubilee, 1725, he visited Rome as a pilgrim, and being disappointed in his expectation of re-entering the English College as a student, he soon after returned again to England.”

The probate of the foregoing will was granted to  Barrentine Howle (Howles) who between the death of the testator and the time the will was presented for probate had married Mary Daniel, the executrix and widow.

45) 1686 – John Gawin’s former servant – John Marshall:  In 1686 we find John Marshall, a former servant of Mr. John Gawin, of York County, engaged in a game with Joseph Bascom, in which the latter lost a wager of five pounds  sterling, a sum equal in purchasing power to one hundred and twenty-five dollars in American currency, a proof of how far the gambling went even among persons of very moderate means.  In the course of the same year a game took place between Captain Soane and Richard Dearlove, of Henrico county, in which ten puts were played for a stake of fifteen hundred pounds of tobacco. Soane was successful, but as Dearlove refused to pay when called upon, a suit was entered against him in court. 18 In 1690 Allanson Clerk, of the same county, who had won four pounds sterling of Peter Rowlett in a game of put, was thrown out of court because, when the game was played, no sum was placed in the hands of a stakeholder, or regular contract to pay such a sum was drawn up, as required by law to give the betting a legal footing. 19 . . .  16 York County Records, Vol. 1675-84, orig., p. 328.  “York County  Records, Vol. 1684-7, p. 144, Va.

By will written August 15, 1687, he left plantations in Pamunkey Neck and Charles City County to elder sons Robert and William, with other bequests; and gave his wife Ann Jones life-right in the 400-acre plantation they then occupied, to go to their son, Orlando Jones, after her death. [See Ibid., Vol. VIII, pages 186-188 for copy of will, recorded December 13, 1688.] Rowland Jones “of Queenes Creek in the County of York … Clerck” had purchased, in September, 1684, for £200 “lawfull Mony of England”, from “John Juxon Cittizen and Salter of London and Sarah his wife late Sarah Webb of London Widdow,” a plantation of 400 acres, “together with the Brick-house and bricks and all other houses ….Scituate in or neare St Andrewes and Queenes Creek in the sd County of York.” The property had been purchased by Robert Spring of Bruton Parish, merchant, in 1676; Spring had “built a faire brick house a appurtenances” on the property between 1676 and 1681. In 1681, Sarah Webb (who married John Juxon, an noted, obtained title to the property from Robert Spring for debts due her husband, Thomas Webb “late Merchant & Citizen & Clothworker of London who dyed in Virginia.” [Ibid., Vol. VI (1677-1684) pp. 304-305, (suit of 1680); pp. 318-324 (chain of title to property from 1642 to Spring’s purchase in April 1676, and deed from Robert and Ann Spring, of June 20, 1681, to “Sarah Webb of London Widdow.”)] The property passed, as devised to Rowland Jones’ wife Ann, and to their son Orland, who was occupying the plantation at the time of his death in 1719.

105) 1699 – William Goyne – servant, with 3 years left to serve in 1699 inv. of Capt John Ferry (48:124). Balt, MD.
http://interactive.ancestry.com/48162/BaltimoreCoFamilies-002452-273/224574?backurl=http%3a%2f%2fsearch.ancestry.com%2fcgi-bin%2fsse.dll%3fdb%3dFLHG-BaltimoreCoFamilies%26gss%3dsfs28_ms_db%26new%3d1%26rank%3d1%26msT%3d1%26gsln%3dgoyne%26gsln_x%3d0%26MSAV%3d1%26uidh%3dm37&ssrc=&backlabel=ReturnSearchResults&rc=207,1696,297,1717

(Note:  In what appears to be March of 1699, our William Gowen or Goyne, is noted as being an indentured servant on John Ferry’s estate documents in Baltimore County, Maryland.   The documents (see below under John Ferry’s inventory) show that William Goyne has “3 years to serve”.  This likely means he was 18 years of age at this time, and that the court placed him as John Ferry’s indentured servant until he turned 21 years of age (3 years from the date of this inventory).

It does not appear that John Ferry was the guardian of any estate for William Goyne.   William Goyne’s father may have died without assets, or there may have been another person who was assigned as guardian of the estate.  Thomas Gowing (who traditionally has been thought of as William Gowing’s father) does not appear to be William Goyne’s father as has been thought by many researchers.  Thomas Gowing may have been an older brother, or an uncle, who may have been the guardian of the estate.

OF NOTE:  Thomas Todd appears to be given all of John Ferry’s servants in his will (see below will).  Since William Goyne is listed in the inventory as a servant, it can be assumed that Thomas Todd became the owner of William Goyne’s indenture for the next 3 years.  (Note: In 1719, John Todd purchases 1215 acres of land from Thomas, John, William and James Goin in Stafford County, Maryland).

119) 1703 August 25 – the probate of the estate of Capt. Thomas Atwell revealed that “Thomas Goen” was listed among the creditors of the estate. Court: estate Thomas Atwell, 25 Aug 1703, , Westmoreland, Virginia, USA.”On August 25, 1703, the probate of the estate of Capt. Thomas Atwell revealed that “Thomas Goen” was listed among the creditors of the estate.”  http://www.freeafricanamericans.com/westmore.htm ; http://www.freeafricanamericans.com/Gibson_Gowen.htm  (Note:  Thomas Atwell’s spouse’s maiden name was Anne Youell (see:  http://www.colonial-settlers-md-va.us/getperson.php?personID=I025834&tree=Tree1 ).  Anne Youell’s father Thomas Youell, was married to Anne Sturman and an Anne Lee.  John Hallowes b. abt. 1586, was married to Ann Youell who came into court in Westmoreland County, Virginia in 1656 and stated she was the widow of Mr. John Hallowes (or Hollis). (Note – Thomas Atwell’s wife had connections with both the Sturman and Youell families, both very closely related to John Hallowes or Hollis b. abt. 1586 and his son John Hallowes or Hollis b. abt. 1612-15’s families – see: https://goyengoinggowengoyneandgone.com/1593-john-hallowes-carpenter/ ).   John Hallowes b. abt 1615 was first married to a Restitute Tew –  His 2nd marriage was to an Elizabeth Sturman (unk maiden name – she had previously been married to John Sturman).  John Sturman (her first husband) was the brother of Anne Sturman Youell who had married Thomas Youell – the same Thomas Youell who was father of Anne Youell who had married Thomas Atwell).  (see: https://goyengoinggowengoyneandgone.com/1613-to-1616-john-hollis-of-md-and-va/ ).  It is uncertain “which” Anne Youell and John Hollowes/Hollis these were that were married, but its obvious there was a family relation here.  Again, just as a reminder, the Y-DNA of the Gowen and Hollis families in the south are a match.  This appears to add additional evidence that the John Hollis b. abt. 1700 family is related to the John Hallowes b. abt. 1612-15 family).
