I. Family of Maj. John Hallowes

Parents:

John Hollis b. abt 1586 – d. 1643 (possibly mother or stepmother is Ann Youll – she indicates she is a widow of John Hollis, but based on records does not appear possible she is the widow of Maj. John Hollis) (Note:  This is speculative regarding whether he is father.  There is documentation of John Hollis carpenter dying in 1643 – who is different from Maj. John Hollis – based on information availabe, he is likely the father – but not certain without further documentation what their relationship is)

Children:

Verified Children of Maj. John Hallowes:

Restitute Hollowes b. abt 1633 and d. abt 1687 m. John Whestone in 1660 (confirmed child – Jan 10, 1655 transaction and other docs)
John Hollowes b. abt 1634 – (confirmed child Jan 10, 1655 transaction)
Samuel Hollowes b. abt 1636 – (confirmed child June 10, 1657 transaction)
William Hollis b. abt 1642 adn d. 1704 – (likely child – is an heir.   After Maj. John Hollis’ death, on Dec 9, 1662, William receivs John Hollis’ 3900 acres in Westmoreland Co, Va)

Possible Children:

Henry Hollis b. 1649 and d. 1688 – (Note: Possible child of Maj. John Hollis – the correct age, and is a servant of John Grammer – likely an apprenticeship. Henry Hollis would have been about 7-8 years old when Maj. John Hollis died. Henry Hollis ends up marrying John Grammer’s widow after he dies, so he must be around the same station in life for her to marry him).
Richard Hollis b. 1637 – possibly child
(Note: No verification he is a child of Maj John Hollis, but he is the correct age, in the correct area of Virginia, and has the same surname, so worth investigating).
Boaz Hollis b. 1648 – possible child (Note: Boaz Hollis would have been about 9 yrs old when Maj John Hollis died. He may be child of Maj John Hollis, but there is no verification)
Lucy Hollis est. birth abt 1640-45 – possible child (Note: Transp to land adj Maj John Hollis by Whetstone husb of Restitute Hollis Jr, having the same surname, being about the correct age, and in Virginia about the same time  likely related, possibly child)

Other Possible Relatives:

Burr Hollis 1630-38 – possibly related (Note: was paid for his “time” out of John Hallowes estate)
Thomas Hollis est. birth 1626 or before – possibly related (Note:  speculative if even related – too old to be his child – age appears more in line with sibling or cousin – need to look at his relationships to see if possible he has any connections to Maj John Hallowes).
Robert Hollis b. 1629 or before – possible relative (Note: No indication of any relation, other than having the same surname, being about the correct age, and in Virginia about the same time)
Edward Hollis est. birth abt 1636-44 – possible relative (Note: No indication of any relation, other than having the same surname, being about the correct age, and in Virginia about the same time)
Ann Hollis est. birth abt 1675 – possible relative (Note: No indication of any relation, other than having the same surname, being about the correct age, and in Virginia – may not be in same time period though).

John Hollis b. 1700 (Note:  possible descendant – living in Prince William Co, Va in 1739, and Fairfax Co, Va – exact connection not found yet, but since in area very close to land John Hallowes b. 1612-15 owned, it is a possibility that needs to be verified if possibe)
James Hollis – In 1735 wrote his will in Albemarle County, North Carolina
Henry Hollis – In 1740 was living adjacent to George Byrn in Prince William County, Virginia.
George Hollis and James Hollis – In 1761 James Hollis 2 and George Hollis receive grants in Augusta Co, Va.

Siblings:

Samuel Hallowes b. abt 1610-1615

II. Summary of major events for Maj. John Hallowes

Maj. John Hollis is born between 1612 and 1615 in Rochdale, Lancaster, England. Likely, his father was John Hollis b. abt 1586-87 (“the carpenter”) in Rochdale, Lancaster, England. The father of Maj. John Hollis is not confirmed, and there are other possible parents – but since John Hollis b. 1586-87 (“the carpenter”) accompanied Maj. John Hollis to the Americas, this seems like the most likely person to be his father.

Maj. John Hollis (and likely his father, John Hollis the carpenter) arrive in Maryland March 25, 1634.  John Hallowes is listed as a passenger to the Ark and the Dove – two ships sent to colonize Maryland.

May 10, 1635, JOHN HOLLIS and CUTBERT FFENNICK servants of THOMAS CORNWALEYS testify at the Maryland assembly regarding William Cleyborne encouraging instigating and authorizing Leiutenant Warren to assault vessels of St Marys and Lieutenant Warren shot and killed William Ashmore in the chest. This notation of the attack also confirms that John Hollis and Cutbert Fennick were servants of Thomas Cornwallis at this time.

On March 11, 1638, JOHN HOLLIS MARRINER is appointed with CUTBERT FFENNICK GENT to search ships for trading without license, this authorization was written to stop those trading illegally with Indians. St. Marys, MD.

In 1638 John Hollis and Richard Bennett purchase 200acres of land from Capt. John Cheesman in Charles River County, Virginia.  (Note:  Charles River County is adjacent to James County, Virginia, where John Gowin was transported by Crompe in 1635).

1638 May 21: JOHN HOLLIS & RICHARD BENNETT, 200 acs. Charles River Co., May 21, 1638, Page 558. Upon Chisopean Bay. Due by assignment from Capt. John Cheesman. Cavaliers and Pioneers, a Calendar of Virginia Land Grants 1623-1800, V. I. Pg 119.

1636 April 23: Same to LT. JOHN CHEESEMAN, 200 acs. in Charles River Co., April 23, 1636, page 336. Upon Chesepeiack Bay & Cheeseman’s Cr. Due for the trans, of: 4 persons (names not mentioned). This patent was renewed by Sir John Harvey in the name of John Hollis & Richard Bennett. Cavaliers and Pioneers, a Calendar of Virginia Land Grants 1623-1800, V. I. Pg 73.

June 1, 1639 Major John Hollis marries Restitute Tew in St. Marys County, Maryland.

John Hollis the carpenter appears to be a different person than Major John Hollis. It appears John Hollis the carpenter is the father of Major John Hollis.  John Hollis the carpenter is likely the person who moved with Richard Bennett to Charles River County, Virginia in 1638. They purchased 200 acres of land from Capt. John Cheesman that year, but then sold it back to him in 1640. It appears John Hollis the carpenter must have returned to Maryland at that time.

1640 Dec 4: CAPT JOHN CHEESMAN, 300 acs. Charles Riv. Co, Dec. 4, 1640, Page 770. Upon Cheesman’s Cr, running parallel to the mouth of the New Poquoson Riv. 200 acs. by assignment from John Hollis & Richard Bennett, & 100 for transp, of Judeth Williams & 1 per. unnamed. Cavaliers and Pioneers, a Calendar of Virginia Land Grants 1623-1800, V. I. Pg 185.

John Hollis the carpenter appears to have moved to Virginia and was noted as being from Virginia.  The 1643 notation regarding John Hollis the carpenter’s death on Dec 1, 1643 in the Maryland Archives states that John Hilierd demanded of John Hollis late of Virginea carpenter deceased’s estate that remained in Maryland for money he was still owed from a transaction where money was still owed Hilierd.  The last notation of John Hollis the carpenter being alive was Dec 1, 1642 when he appeared in court to make a demand against Robert Nicholls.

On June 28, 1642, John Hallowes, mariner, and all other inhabitants of St. Marys received a judgment against 3 Irishmen who fled area in debt – Bryan Kelley, Batasar Codd, and Cornelius O’Sulivant. These may have been Protestants who were supporting Parliament during the First English Civil War. August 20, 1642, it appears John Hollis the carpenter moved back to Virginia, as he was listed as being transported back to Virginia by Capt Samuel Mathewes on that date – meaning he was moving back to Virginia to be part of the colony.

John Hollis is in Maryland closing out accounts at the end of 1642, making demands in court of debts owed to him. Oct 15, 1642 he makes demand of Randoll Revell. Nov 1, 1642, he makes demand that the colony pay him for the use of his boat in an expedition against the Indians back in September of 1642. Nov 2, 1642, Hollis makes claims against John Neville, and Cyprian Thorowgood. November 3, 1642, in a court case in St. Marys, Maryland, JOHN LEWGER alledges MATHIAS DE SOUSA is bound to Hollis for 4 months, and LEWGER appears to want to pay a debt he owes JOHN HOLLIS with that indenture.  November 9, 1642 he makes demands against William Howkins for debts owed. November 10, 1642 he makes demands of Joseph Edlo for debts owed. http://teaching.msa.maryland.gov/000001/000000/000003/html/t3.html

On November 15, 1642, widow Jane Cockshott makes demand against John Hollis for a debt owed.

On November 19, 1642, John Hollis and his wife Restitute Hollis make claims against Thomas Boys for defaming Restitute Hollis by Thomas Boys saying “he would prove Restitute Hollis a whore”.

December 1, 1642, John Hollis the carpenter makes a claim against Robert Nicholls for a debt owed in Maryland. This is the last entry that clearly identifies John Hollis “the carpenter”, appearing to be alive at this time. Other entries noted as just “John Hollis” continue to appear, but none with the identification of “the carpenter” beyond December 1, 1642.

DEATH OF JOHN HOLLIS THE CARPENTER: John Hollis the carpenter died some time between December 1, 1642 and December 1, 1643, when John Hilierd makes demands of John Hollis carpenter’s estate. This would have been towards the beginning of the First English Civil War.

December 1, 1642, Mathias De Sousa is assigned to John Hollis as his servant to pay off a debt owed by John Lewger (who owned the indenture of Mathias De Sousa).  http://teaching.msa.maryland.gov/000001/000000/000003/html/t3.html

The March 1643 court heard the case of John Dandy, blacksmith – where he had shot an Indian ladd (since christned by the name of Edward) in the right side of his belly neare the navell, so that he peirced his gutts, of which said wound the said Edward afterward within the space of 3 days died. John Hollis sat on the jury along with Cuthbert Fennick, John Hatch, Robert Wiseman and John Hilierd (among others), and found John Dandy guilt of felony murder.

On March 18, 1643, the St Marys, MD court ordered JOHN HOLLIS to answer or show license for delivering a gun to an Indian.

INDIAN ATTACK ON BOAT: On July 10, 1643, John Hollis gave testimony in court on how Roger Oliver came to die. John Hollis “saith that being upon the deck (of a boat), & called by Thomas Boys to help Roger Oliver, he leaped down into the hold, & saw an Indian & the said Roger struggling together, whereupon John Hollis knocked the Indian on the head with the barrel of a gun, . . . he saw the said Roger fall down by a wound . . . the Indian had given him as he supposed; & being distracted for some time with perils of his life in the hold with other Indians as soon as he looked upon the said Roger he saw him dead, & more he knows not of the means how he came by his death.

On January 2, 1646 an oath of fealty was required of the inhabitants of St. Marys, including John Hollis, Nath: Pope, Thomas Sturman, John Tue, Walter Broadhurst, John Hilliard, John Gore (among others), requiring them to communicate “no intelligence” to any foreigners during the time of war. Neither were they to leave St. Marys or Kent Island without leave granted. They also prohibited the export of corn or cattle – all under pain of death.

On November 25, 1646, an inventory was returned to the St Marys, MD court for the estate of Capt. Ingle. Included among the notes (among several other things) were a bill from John Hallowes, a bill from John Sturman, a judgment against Thomas Broadnax, and a receipt from Nathaniel Pope.

On November 23, 1648, JOHN HATCH, BARNABY JACKSON, and THOMAS OLIVER all file suit against JOHN HALLOWES for transporting JOHN WALTON out of the province when JOHN WALTON was indebted to each of them.

1649 Jan 10 – THOMAS SPAKE, Gent., 400 acs. Northumberland Co., 10 Jan. 1649, p. 206. Abutting N. E. upon Nomeny Bay, S. E. upon cr. dividing this from land of Walter Broadhurst & N. W. upon cr. dividing this from land of John Hollowes.

On Jan 30, 1650 , John Hanch (Hatch), Mary King, Restitute Hollowes, Senr., Wm. Freake, John Tew, John Knott, John Hollowes, Restitute Hollowes, Junr.Tho. Yowill, Tho. Yowill, Junr., Ann Yowill, Junr., and Wm. Yowill all left Maryland to Northumberland Co, Va on Hallowes Creek, Canowoman Creek, and the Potomack River.

1652 Nov 25: Gray Clare, Mr Hollowes, Mr Ashton ffreake, and Smith, 100 lb. tobo ”Whereas it doth apper unto the Court ff’rancis Gray, Richard Clare, Mr John Hallowes, Mr Charles Ashton, Wm Freake and Herbert Smith have each one of them killed a Wolfe The Court doth therefore order that every one of them shall have one hundred pounds of Tobaco paid them by the Collector in their sevarall limitts for the levy of this year” in Westmoreland Co, Va.

1653 Feb 20: John Hollowes Gent. aged 38 years or there abouts being sworn and examined saith that Mr. Chichester told this depondent Mr. Joseph Manning [—–] sell goods for him and Mr. Sel-] [ oj bills for payment [—–] to anyone of them and further saith not, in Westmoreland Co, Va.

1654 Sept 6: THOMAS HOBKINS, received 1400 acs. Lancaster Co., on N. side of Rappa. Riv., Trans. of 28 pers including: John Hallows, John Tue, William Freeke, Robert Street, Restitute Hollis, Sr., Restitute Hollis, Junr., John Knott, Thomas Youle, Ann Yowell, Senr., Ann Yowell, Junr., And. Munroe, Thomas Yowell, William Yowell, John Eaton, Geo. Eaton, Assignee of A. Moon, assignee of Mr. Hollis & John Eaton.  (Note:  Thomas Hobkins’ list of people transported is almost identical to the list of John Hallowes back in Jan 30, 1650 – which raises questions.  Did they move back to Maryland again, and then back to Virginia?  It does not appear so.  Could Thomas Hobkins have been a partner of John Hollis’ transport of these people back in 1650, who failed to turn in his claim until 1654?  This is more likely).  

1655 Jan 10: p.51. “Know all men by these presents That I John Hallowes gent doe renounce all my right and intrest unto the service of Sion the Turke whose last Master I was and I doe declare that bee is a freeman from mee Witnes my hand the 10th Janu: 1655. Jo Hallowes Witnes Tho Wilsford 10 Janu: 1655 This discharge was Recorded”.

1651 July 8 Richard Turney recd 2009 acres abutting southerly upon Potomack River. The tract of land commonly kown by the name of Doggs Island . . . due unto Richard Turney for transporting 42 persons into the colony, including Syon the Turke, Manuole the Negro,
and Joan the Negro.

1655 July 20: ”Mrs Hallowes her Depo Elizabeth Hallowes aged 24 yeares or thereabouts being sworn and examined saith That this Deponent did heare an absolute bargain made and agreed upon betweene John Sturman and her late husband and Tho Youll concerning tile sale of a parcell of land lyeing betweene Mr Spekes and Richard Hawkins unto the said Tho Youll And she this Depon’t doth verily beleeve that the Assignm ‘t made and subscribed by the said John Sturman is his owne hand writing And further saith not. Signum Eliza: Hallowes 20 July 1655 Jurat in Cur”.  (Note:  The language used does not clearly identify who Elizabeth Hallowes is saying her prior husband is.  But in reading this document, her testifying about recognizing John Sturman’s handwriting verifies that John Sturman must have been her prior husband.  There would be no other need for her testimony here, other than to say that she recognized the handwriting of her deceased husband, John Sturman). 

Will of Thomas Boys of Westmoreland Co dated 1 Aug 1656. Prob: 20 Oct 1657. To Elizabeth Boys “my now wife” cattle. Her wearing clothes. To Major John Hallowes “my very loveing friend” gold ring, tobacco and cattle. To John Hiller, Gent., “my loveing friend and Neighbour” tobacco and cattle. . . . (continued).  (Note:  It appears all has been forgiven regarding the defamation lawsuit regarding Thomas Boys calling Maj. John Hallowes’ wife, Restitute, a whore – Restitute has died by this time, and Maj. John Hallowes has remarried to Elizabeth Hallowes (who was married to John Sturman previously)

1655 Oct 1: ”Alexander Baynham aged 35 yeares or thereabouts being sworne and examined saith That this Depon ‘t comeing downe fn a Boate with Mr Hallowes and Mr Turney heard Mr Turney say that James Hares wife should say that the said Mr Hallowes had married both a whore and a theife And further saith not Alex: Baynham 1 Octo 1655 Jurat in Cur”·  (Note:  Uhoh, another person calling Maj. John Hallowes’ new wife, Elizabeth, a whore . . . hmm).

1656 Oct 4: Ann Youll widow to Mr John Hallowes to appear in next Court for her. Signed Ann Youll.  (Note:  Maj. John Hallowes does not die until some time after August 1657 – October 5, 1657 – both entries where he appears for parts of John Dandy’s murder trial.  The Oct 15, 1657 note indicates Maj. John Hallowes has been “fatally killed”). 

1656 Nov 30: LT. COL. NATHANIELL POPE, 1,050 acs. Westmoreland Co., 30 Nov. 1656, 50 acs. Nly. upon a branch of the head of Hollis’ Cr. at Apamatockes, Ely. upon land of Major John Hollis; & 1000 acs.

(Note:  John Dandy was a repeat offender.  

In March, 1643, he had shot and killed Edward, an Indian who had converted to Christianity, and had become part of the community.  Dandy was tried, and convicted, but eventually was pardoned.  

On April 27, 1650, John Dandy was suing Richard Husband, marriner for commanding his seamen to bind Dandy.  Dandy and Husband were arguing and Dandy had refused to leave Husband’s boat and they got into a stuggle.  Husband ordered his men to bind Dandy, where Dandy was found with his arms pinioned behind him, and tied to his neck with a cord in a rigorous fashion. 

1650 Sept 2 – Thomas Maidwell brought suit against John Dandy and his wife for assault. John Dandy and wife attacked Thomas Maidwell in his shop at St Inegoes Fort, St Marys Maryland, because Thomas Maidwell had accepted 2-3 peaches from a girl that works at John Dandy’s house. Dandy’s wife entered the shop “giving him very ill language”, and then John Dandy entered the shop and approached Maidwell with a large hammer in his hand. As Maidwell backed away from John Dandy, Dandy’s wife approached Maidwell from behind and struck him in the head with a “smithes cindar”. As Maidwell was stunned, John Dandy suddenly attacked Maidwell and struck Maidwell in the head with his hammer. Maidwell struggled with them and escaped his shop and ran out into the Fort, feeling in danger for his life

In the 1657 case, John Dandy is accused of killing his own servant, Henry Gouge, who’se body was found naked, and others had heard him crying out as Dandy was beating him.  John Dandy’s wife, Ann Dandy, testified that John Dandy had beaten Henry Gouge before about the head, and that she had taken pieces of his skull out from the previous beating.  Walter Peake gave testimony that confirmed Ann Dandy’s story – Walter Peake had gone to the Dandy home and seen Henry Gouge appearing very abused.  Ann Dandy told Walter Peake that John Dandy had hit Gouge in the head with the pole of an axe, and she had taken 2 pieces of Gouge’s skull out afer.  John Dandy was apprehended for the murder, in Maryland, on July 7, 1657.  He escaped and fled to Virginia.  John Hallowes, acting as sheriff in Westmoreland County, Virginia, apprehended John Dandy, and returned him to St. Marys, Maryland, to stand trial.  John Hallowes testified that John Dandy had admitted to him the killing of Henry Gouge.   On September 30, 1657, the jury found John Dandy guilty and sentenced him to death.  John Dandy was subsequently executed).

DEATH OF JOHN HOLLIS: 1657 Oct 15: . . . the St. Marys, Maryland court notes . . . “Mr John Hollis being fatally killed” . . . and later in the same transaction discuss . . . “Major Hallews Sr” . . . (Note:  This indicates Maj. John Hallowes has died, and not of natural causes, between October 5, 1657 (when he was noted alive last) to Oct 15, 1657.  Acting as sheriff, and being in the frontier, there are multiple ways Maj. John Hallowes could have “been fatally killed”.   The entry ALSO verifies that Maj John Hallowes has a son named John Hallowes – as the Major is addressed as “Hallowes Sr”).

IV. Some Relevant Hollis records after death of Maj. John Hallowes

1658 April 12: From Westmoreland County, Virginia, Records, 1658-1661, by John Frederick Dorman, page 10:
Page 104. John Walton, aged 36 or thereabouts, saith that he heard MRS. HALLOWES say that she would consume as much as she could of Major Hallowes her late husband’s estate. Signed: John Walton. Sworn in Court 12 April 1658.  Hum. Jones, aged 30 or thereabouts, saith the very same that his contest John Walton hath deposed. Signed: Hum: Jones. Sworn in Court 12 April 1658.  (Note:  John Walton and Humphrey Jones testify in court in Westmoreland County, Virginia, that Elizabeth Hallowes – widow of Maj. John Hallowes – is attempting to consume the estate.  This is problematic for several reasons.  First, Maj. John Hallowes has children from a previous marriage (with Restitute Hallowes) – and this action might destroy the heir’s inheritance.  Additionally, people owed money out of the estate do not want this to happen.  They want to be paid out of the estate what they are owed).

1658 Nov 29 – COL. JOHN TRUSSELL & GERVASE DODSON, 1000 acs. Northumberland Co., Va. . . .upon land of Jacob Contancean & Col. Mattrom . . . Trans, of 20 pers: Wm. Ashwell, . . . Tho. Hollis, . . .

(Note:  Thomas Hollis and a Mary Goyne (or Goyse) are transported to Northumberland Co, Va, upon land of Col. Mottrom – who had several transactions with Maj. John Hollis – this is some evidence Thomas Hollis was possibly a relative of Maj. John Hollis, and additional evidence the Going family and Hollis family knew eachother at this time).

They shot at the Indians that were in the other canowe and killed five of them (all of them).  The Indians on the shore killed one of their company called John Spurne.  (Note:  William Hollis living in Baltimore MD in 1660-61.  He gives testimony about an Indian attack).

Westmoreland Co, Va. (Note:  William Hallows receives the 3900 acres of land that had been assigned to John Hallows back on June 10, 1654.  This is evidence that William Hallows is an heir of Maj. John Hallows, most likely Maj. John Hallows son.  William Hallows moves to Baltimore, MD and appears to have assets in the area).

John Hollis – as Restitute Hollis had also died – so both his natural parents would have been dead.   Him marrying Elizabeth Grammer likely means he was of the same station in life – in other words, Henry Hollis probably had enough assets that they were willing to risk losing John Grammer’s land, as Henry must have had assets of his own).

In 1704, a John Hollis is noted in tithe lists as owning 130 acres of land in Princess Anne County, Virginia – on the border with North Carolina on the east coast.

1722 March 28: (COURT DECISION re 2400 acres devised to daughter Restitute Hallows m. Whiston)  John Hallows late of Rachdale in the County Palatine of Lancaster:, was seized of 2400 Acres of Land in Virginia & died so seized, leaving Issue, Restitute his Daughter & Heir. Restitute Hallows entered and intermarried with one Whiston & by him had Issue Restitute her Daughter and Heir and died seized.Restitute Whiston entered and intermarried with one Thomas Steel and by him, had Issue Thomas Steel her eldest Son & Heir; And afterwards intermarried with one Manly and had issue two sons by him John and William Manly And being a Widow at her Death made her last Will & Testament in Writing bearing Date the 30th Day of January 1687 . . . “I Give & Bequeath to my Son Thomas Steel . . . if my Son Thomas Steel die in his Minority before he be of Age . . . then my other two Sons, John & W’m Manly . . . Thomas Steel at his Age of 16 entered into the Lands and took the Profits thereof, and lived till he had almost attained his Age of 21, & died without Issue; After whose Death John Manly entered into the Lands and died in Possession leaving Issue the Def’t.
The Lessor of the Pl’t is Samuel Hallows Son & Heir of Matthew Hallows, who was Son & Heir of Samuel Hallows who was eldest Brother of the said John Hallows . . . Mr. Hallows Title depends upon the Construction of those Words in the Codicil ” If Thomas Steel die in his Minority before he be of Age to enjoy the Land devised,” if by those words Thomas Steel’s Death before 21 is to be understood, Mr. Hallows will have no title because Tho’s Steel did die before his Age of 21; and in that Case if Thomas Steel had had Children they could not have taken this Estate . . . And therefore upon the whole, if Mr. Hallows proves his Pedigree plainly, I am of Opinion he hath a good Title to these Lands devised.  (Note:  The court uses tortured legal reasoning to give the land toe Samuel Hallows, and wrest it away from Restitute Hallowes Jr’s direct descendants who were still living – John Manly).  

1723 Nov 29: Letter from Robert Carter to William Dawkins merchant.  “I am now concerned more nearly in another appeal one Esquire Hallow’s a gentleman of Lancaster not far from Liverpool has sued the [illegible] heirs of one Manley for a Seat of Land in Westmorland County . . . nicety in the Law to get the Judgment of our General Court in his favour. The Court was divided until it came to Colonel Jenings who is so debilitated in his understanding by Age and infirmities that in reality he does not know what he says or does his Vote carried it against these poor Orphan’s he may have happened to have hit right but sure I am it was absolutly guess work in him I did not sit as a Judge in the Cause having purchased another Estate of this Manly to avoid all [illegible] reflections I have promised to the Orphan’s to support them in the Charge of this appeal if the Judgment of the Court here be affirmed against thn them The Orphan’s will be turned naked into the world to look for a being and the Will of their Mother under which this Hallows also claims intirely Defeated in her designed provision for them . . .  it has been whisper’d that Mr Hallows sent in an opinion of Sir Robert Ramonds which seemed to favour his side of the question . . . whether this report has had any influence upon our Court I shall not pretend to say Hallows is reported to be both eminent and rich and having the judgment here on his side makes the Struggle the more doubtful . . . ”

http://carter.lib.virginia.edu/html/C23k29a.mod.html  (Note:  Robert Carter writes a letter to a merchant regarding Samuel Hallowes taking the land from the Orphans of the Manly family, and leaving them with nothing.  He indicates he, Robert Carter, could have been a judge on the case, but had to recuse himself due to having purchased another plot of land from the Manly family, and needing to avoid any appearance of any conflicts of interest.  He does not sound convinced the court reached the correct decision due to the deciding vote being mady by Col. Jenings, who was “so debilitated in his understanding by age and infirmities . . . he does not know what he says or does”.  He also indicates that due to Samuel Hallows wealth an influence, that he was able to obtain an opinion from Sir Robert Ramonds in England that he thinks influenced the courts in Virginia in Samuel Hallows favor).  

1728 May 30: Letter from Robert Carter to Samuel Hallows, Esquire, regarding attempts to purchase the 2400 acres of land in Westmoreland County, Virginia.

“. . . Mr. Randolph has indeed valued your Lands at £700. but I dare Say it is a price he will never be able to procure for you If he can I am Sure I must not be the Purchaser The price what I offered is the utmost I will give. As for Clilton he did not die worth 500 Groats more than what he had in Virginia. I have a debt owing from that Estate which I am forced to Sue his Son for and do not yet See when I shall get my money who that other Gentleman is I can only guess. If you find his money better then mine I am very apprehensive you will think it proper to take it. Mr. Randolph is now coming for England, as for his Judgement of your Estate I shall not find fault with but from my information which I believe is rather better than his of the Circumstances of it I cannot Set it at so high an Esteem as he has done. Money is very hard to be raised in Virginia at this day Our Tobacco runs very Extreme low and we have no other way to re turn any Income from our Lands but by [illegible] that trade I hope if you have been under a misinformation as to the Value of your Estate you will not deem me ingracious when I tell you I cannot come up to your price Terms I am  – Your most humble Servt”

“. . . After my coming home my Son Robert acquainted me you had made him an Offer of Hallows’s Land and told him that you were fully empowered to Sell it when I went from home I had it in my thought [s] to [illegible] have treated with you very particularly about this Business matter but what through your multiplicty of Business the difficulty of having any conversatio [n] with you and to say truth my own forgetfulness it never came into my head Until Robins [illegible] discourse Mr. Hallows in a letter of the 16th: of December last (for you must know we have been in treaty about this Land for man [y] years) tells me that illegible among other things that upon your return from the Bath he had seen you and intended to Invest you with the property of the lands to Enable to [sic ] you to make good the title and therefore advised me to clo [se] with you upon your return that he had rather the Estate should fall as to my share with whom he has had some Correspondence rather than to a Stranger and that my Friend Mr Pemberton Will be ready to Observe my orders & would pay the [order] that he might have his money upon the first return answ [er] ing me that he will ratify and Confirm the Title upon the receipt of the Purchase money these are some of his Words and I cant but think he may have said something like this to you however it Came to pass that not a Word should arise Between you & I Concerning this Letter I must own the plaice is very convenient to some of my Sons Lands and he seems pretty fond of having it and therefore If you think it Proper to give me the refusal of it and Will contrive a place of meeting (but that I would Willingly have at my house which you may take in your Way up as my Son tells me you are designed ) if you are not too Stiff in your demands I shall be ready to Close the Barga [in] According to Mr Hallows Phrase Your Answer hereto is desired”.  Source copy consulted: Letter book, 1728 August-1731 July, Robert Carter Papers (acc. no. 3807), Albert and Shirley Small Special Collections Library, University of Virginia.  A Collection Transcribed and Digitized by Edmund Berkeley, Jr. List of Letters.  Electronic Text Center , University of Virginia Library

1730 April 15: Letter from Robert Carter to John Pemberton, Liverpool merchant . . . He notes his ongoing negotiation for the purchase of Virginia land belonging to Samuel Hallowes of England.  “. . . I am yet in treaty with Mr Randolph attorney for Esqr. Hallows about his land and have some reason to Expect to be the purchaser at the last What instructions he hath lately receiv’d I don’t yet hear If I should buy this land I shall go near to draw for a good part of the money in Your hands.

http://carter.lib.virginia.edu/html/C30d15c.html  (Note:  Robert Carter writes to John Pemberton in Liverpool and mentions his continuing negotiations with Samuel Hallows over the 2400 acres.  He indicates his belief he will be the purchaser of this land).  

1732 June 9: Letter from Robert Carter to John Pemberton, Liverpool merchant. asking him to enquire of Samuel Hallows if it is true that he has sold an estate to Thomas Carter (Lee?) that he, Robert Carter, had tried previously to buy as he remains interested in it.  ” . . . Here is a report that Esqr. Hallows hath sold his land to Colo Thomas Lee at the price of £450. and I am well inform’d Colo Lee hath said as much himself but I don’t know how to beleive this report when I consider as you may pleas to remember I offered him by yr hands Some years agoe £500 for it and if I forget not in my behalf you proposed to lay down the money: Beleiving you are well Acquainted with this gentleman I make it my riquest to you to inform yourself from him whether he has parted with his estate here or no for I am not yet quite off of the humour of buying it . . .”  Source copy consulted: Letter book, 1731 July 9-1732 July 13 , Robert Carter Papers (acc. no. 3807), Albert and Shirley Small Special Collections Library, University of Virginia.  A Collection Transcribed and Digitized by Edmund Berkeley, Jr. List of Letters.  Electronic Text Center , University of Virginia Library.  http://carter.lib.virginia.edu/html/C32f09b.html (Note:  Robert Carter learns that Samuel Hallows has sold the 2400 acres of land to Thomas Lee for 450lb, which he doesn’t understand because he had made an offer of 500lbs previously.  He wanted to make sure this sale was actually done, and see if his 500lb offer had ever been conveyed to Samuel Hallows).  

1733 March 27:  . . . SAMUELL HALLOWS of Ashworth in the County of Lancaster, Esquire . . . Indentures of Lease and Release . . . betweene SAMUELL HALLOWS of the one part and THOMAS LEE of POTOMACK in the County of Westmorland in the Colony of Virginia Esquire of the other part; . . . about two thousand and four hundred acres of land . . .  pattented by Major JOHN HALLOWS, late of Virginia, deceased, and descend to his Daughter, RESTITUTE, and were lately recovered by SAMUEL HALLOWS from the heirs of JOHN MANLEY, deceased, and are now in the possession of SAMUELL HALLOWS.  . . . by the said Deeds sold and conveyed by him to THOMAS LEE. of the County of Westmorland, Esqr.  (Note:  Samuel Hallows, relative from England who sued for the estate of John Hollis some 65 years after he had died, sells the 2400 acres he recovered to Thomas Lee.  It is possible, that Maj. John Hallowes DID have other living heirs but that those heirs did not get involved in the case, because they thought that their John Manly – son of Restitute Hallows Jr – would have superior title to anyone else – as he was the direct descendant of Restitute Hallows Jr who had received the land out of the estate.  It is also possible that those heirs did not know much of anything regarding the legal issues surrounding these proceedings regarding this particular land.  They may have even been unaware of this suit, as this was filed 65 years after the death of John Hallows, and as they may have been in other counties, or even back in Maryland (or other states), when this suit occured.  How often do people today know what properties their grandparents or great grandparents owned 60-70 years ago when they have moved to a new state – and what the legal status is of that land?  If they believe that land belonged to their cousin’s line, not their own line, this may well have slipped under the radar of any Hollis cousins to Restitute Hollis Jr’s descendants – who may have had a superior right to the property over Samuel Hallows, but had no knowledge of the law, or had no knowledge this was happening).

1771 Nov 13: From George Washington to Harrison Manley,
“Inclosed you will receive a Copy of the Act Impowering your Grandfather to sell certain Intaild Lands—There being no printed copy of it, I was obliged to have recourse to the Inrolld Bills in the possession of the Clerk of the House of Burgesses, and consequently pay the Fee established by our Assembly (which is 15/) an expence I would have saved you, by copying it myself, if the private Acts of that date had been Printed; but it seems they are not. Colo. Carter’s Escheat of Hallows Land is not among the records in the Secretary’s Office, for this you will be obliged to apply to the Proprietor’s office; and Mr Everard, the principal clerk in the Secretary’s, being constantly engaged with the Court business I could not get him to search for the Paper’s, and decree in favour of Hallows against Manley’s heir—I attempted it myself, but for want of knowledge in their Records, I could not trace the proceedings regularly on; though I found where the Suit was commenced in April 1720 by Hallows, against George Eskridge Guardian to your Father—I shall probably go to Williamsburg again in Feby as the Assembly, it is suppos’d, will then meet; and shall find the Clerks more at leizure to search for the Papers you want, or if this will be delaying the matter longer than you would choose, I could write to Mr Everard by the Post, who I dare say would send transcrips from the records of every thing necessary to illucidate the point you want to know.
Herewith you will receive the Notes &ca agreeable to your Memm and the Treasurers rect for the Sum you sent by me, but he would not receive the Acct as the 61 Hhds of relanded Tobo should mutilated be a credit to the Country mutilated was money actually received, or ought to have been so, mutilatedlaced to the Country credit as the Warehouses belongd to mutilated—I offer’d to pay the difference, that is the £2.0.8, but he said this would answer no purpose, as the Acct must be fresh stated, at which time it would do equally well to receive the Ballance, and requested me to bring down the Acct with the alteration I have here mentioned, that he may enter a proper state of it in his Books . . . ”

(Notes:  Harrison Manley (d. 1773) was the son of John Manley (died c.1750) and Sarah Harrison Manley (d. 1785). In Fairfax County Manley owned a small tract of land on the southwestern part of Mount Vernon Neck which GW was finally able to purchase in 1786. This tract, along with a larger one he was to acquire the same year from Penelope French, would complete GW’s acquisition of the entire neck of land originally granted in the seventeenth century to Nicholas Spencer and John Washington.
1. The October 1712 session of the assembly passed “An Act to enable William Manley, gent. to sell and dispose of certain entailed Lands and Tenements lying in the County of Westmoreland, on settling other Lands and Tenements lying in the said County, of which he is seized in fee, to the same uses” (4 Hening 36). Only the title of the act is recorded in Hening. The copy of the act attested by Richard Buckner, clerk of the House of Burgesses in 1712, is in the Virginia Session Laws, 1710–12, P.R.O., C.O. 5/1386, ff. 32–34, in Microfilm Collection of Early State Records. The act permitted William Manley, because he had “no personal Estate wherewith to support himself and his family . . . [and had contracted] Great Debts . . . and hath not wherewithall to Sattisfye the said Debts,” to sell 2,200 acres of entailed land in Westmoreland County. This land was patented by John Whiston (Whittstone) in 1667. Manley was instead to settle 1,600 acres of other land in the county, which he held in fee simple under a 1650 patent of John Hollows (Hollis), to be entailed. One of the conditions under which this act could be declared void was if it ran contrary to the interests of “any other person or persons Claiming under the above named John Hallows.
2. Col. Robert (King) Carter (1663–1732) served as agent for the Fairfaxes’ Northern Neck Proprietary from 1702 to 1711 and again from 1722 to 1732.
3. Thomas Everard (1719–1781) held a number of important posts, among them clerk of the General Court. The office of the deputy secretary of the colony, Thomas Nelson (1715–1787), issued land patents. The George Eskridge who acted as guardian to Harrison Manley’s father John Manley was probably the same man—a Westmoreland County lawyer—who served as guardian to GW’s mother, Mary Ball Washington, and godfather to GW. Eskridge died in 1735.
John Hollows (Hollis), an early justice and burgess from Westmoreland County, in 1650 patented 2,400 acres on the Potomac River at the mouth of Nomini Creek. His granddaughter, Restitute Whiston (Whittstone), inherited the property, and upon her death in 1687 she left this tract of land to her oldest son, Thomas Steele, Jr., with the proviso that in case of his death before he reached his majority the land was to be divided between her two younger sons, John and William Manley. Young Steele died before he reached the age of 21, leaving no heirs,and John Manley, Restitute Whiston Manley’s only surviving son, took possession. A suit was brought by Samuel Hollows, the heir of John Hollows’s older brother, for recovery of the land, and the case was sent to England for an opinion. On 28 Mar. 1722 Sir Robert Raymond ruled that the plaintiff, Hollows, had “a good Title to these Lands devised” (Barton, Virginia Colonial Decisions, 2:1326–27). The land was bought by Thomas Lee in 1732 and became part of his Stratford Hall plantation. See also Eaton, Westmoreland Atlas, 22, 46, 52, and Lee, Lee Chronicle, 64.
http://founders.archives.gov/documents/Washington/02-08-02-0360 (Note:  In 1771 Harrison Manly, son of John Manly, is still inquiring about the 2400 acres Samuel Hallows took from his father.  George Washington is replying to Harrison Manly with the information he has been able to find regarding the case and land).  

V. Genealogy Note: Possible connection with Going or Gowen family

(Genealogy Note: The southern Hollis families that descended from John Hollis b. abt 1700 from the Stafford Co, Va area have a Y-DNA match with the southern Going families who descend from William Going b. abt 1682 in the Stafford Co, Va area.  If John Hollis b. abt 1613 is an ancestor of John Hollis b. 1700, then there may be a relation with the William Going b. 1682 family as well – depending on when and how the “non-paternal” event occurred that matches the Hollis and Going lines). The first mention of John Goane (or Gowin/Going) in the Virginia area is on September 28, 1635 – having been transported to James County, Virginia by Thomas Crompe (Crumpe). Two other  men transported in that transaction, Thomas Phillips and John Abbott, have a history in Maryland – John Abbott in Kent Island, MD).

Sept 28, 1635, Thomas Crompe transports 9 people into Virginia and receives 500 acres in James County, Virginia. Among those he transports are John Gowing, Thomas Phillips and John Abbott. (Note:  Thomas Phillips is noted in St. Marys Co, MD on March 20, 1653 witnessing the sale of cattle, and again May 27, 1656 assigns to pay Mr. John Hatch or Zacharias Wade for use of John Baley.  John Abbott is listed on the Isle of Kent in Maryland several times starting as early as 1640). (Note:  Thomas Crumpe was a Burgess for James City. It is likely he married the daughter of the Rev. Richard Buck. In March 1654-55 Hening I, 405 notes that the Assembly ordered in a case regarding John Bromfield v. widdow Crump – that the will of Richard Buck entitled widow Elizabeth Crumpe to continue to live on the estate without further molestation).

On Oct 18, 1650 Walter Broadhurst transports 10 people from Maryland to Northumberland County, Virginia – including John Goane, William Hardigg, Robert Beard, and John Piper.  They are transported to the mouth of Canowoman Creek and the Potomac River.  (Basically just crossing to the other side of the Potomac River).  This is almost the exact location that Maj. John Hollis was transported to on January 30, 1650.

In 1635-1637 James Knott transports John Piper to Elizabeth City County or Upper Norfolk County – (Note: both near James County, Virginia where John Goane had been transported in 1635). (Note:  John Knott and John Piper have connections to John Hollis b. 1613-1616 in Maryland).

Henry Hollis b abt 1649 – d. 1688 m. widow Elizabeth Grammer (widow of John Grammer). Possible child:  (Note:  Possible child of Maj. John Hollis – the correct age, and is a servant of John Grammer – likely an apprenticeship.  Henry Hollis would have been about 7-8 years old when Maj. John Hollis died.  Henry Hollis ends up marrying John Grammer’s widow after he dies, so he must be around the same station in life for her to marry him).

The court finds in favor of Henry Hollis and orders John Rogers to pay Henry Hollis’ court costs.

Thomas Hollis b. abt 1626 or before (possibly a 2nd Thomas Hollis b. 1630-40) – possible relative (Note:  If all entries below are the same Thomas Hallowes, then he would be born about 1626 or before – meaning he is too old to be a child of Maj. John Hollis b. 1612-15.  The 1655 and 1663 entries appear to be related to Maj. John Hollis – as Mr. Bagnell is also involved in the 1654 June transaction for 3900 acres to John Walton and John Bagnall, that they assigned to Maj. John Hallowes.  The 1663 entry shows Thomas Hollis being transported to Nomini Creek in Virginia – the same area where Maj. John Hollis had land – possibly adjacent to that land, along with Mary King, Tho. Munson, and Wm Fruell – all names that appear to be connected to Maryland.  This appears to be people being transported into Virginia who are leaving Maryland.  There is no direct evidence Thomas Hollis is related to Maj. John Hollis – but this is circumstantial evidence they may have been).

VII. All Facts, Events, and Sources for Maj. John Hallowes

The following are ALL the documents I have found regarding John Hollis and his potential family members in the Maryland and Virginia areas along the Potomac River.  The documents and citations ABOVE show his family, his age, his occupation, etc.  The ones below show the same thing, but there were so many, I did not want to include them in the above section – for fear of losing them like a needle in a haystack.  But feel free to search those records below – all the records I found regarding people I think might be his family are included on this page: (The following documents relate to John Hollis and his family.  Some are definitely him, some are in question.  There may have been 3 generations of John Hollis’.  The John Hollis we typically think of – mariner and trader.  John Hollis carpenter (I believe this one may be the father).  John Hollis the son of John Hollis the mariner/trader).

(Note:  It appears that John Hollis transported John Walton out of Maryland while he was deep in debt.  John Hollis was sued by several people for doing this.  My assumption is that John Walton was assigning this land to John Hollis as part of the repayment of that debt he owed to John Hollis for helping with that situation).  Later, in 1662 (after John Hollis’ death) a William Hollis is granted this 3900 acres (see below) – which seems to indicate that William Hollis must have been an heir of John Hollis.  See the transactions below for context:

1722 March 28: (COURT DECISION re 2400 acres devised to daughter Restitute Hallows m. Whiston)
B26 VIRGINIA COLONIAL DECISIONS
SIR ROBT. RAYMOND’S OPINION IN A CASE SENT FROM VIRGINIA IN 1722.
CASE INT HALLOWS & MANLY } EJECTMENT UPON SPECIAL VERDICT
John Hallows late of Rachdale in the County Palatine of Lancaster:, was seized of 2400 Acres of Land in Virginia & died so seized, leaving Issue, Restitute his Daughter & Heir. Restitute Hallows entered and intermarried with one Whiston & by him had Issue Restitute her Daughter and Heir and died seized. Restitute Whiston entered and intermarried with one Thomas Steel and by him, had Issue Thomas Steel her eldest Son & Heir; And afterwards intermarried with one Manly and had issue two sons by him John and William Manly And being a Widow at her Death made her last Will & Testament in Writing bearing Date the 30th Day of January 1687 [24] in these Words,
“I Give & Bequeath to my Son Thomas Steel that Tract of Land I now live on (y’e Land in Dispute) to him and his Heirs forever.
ltem it is my Will that my three Children with their Estates remain in the Hands of my Ex’r till they shall come of the Age of 16 Years & then to have their Estates;”
and the same Day made her Codicil in these Words
“It is my Will that if my Son Thomas Steel die in his Minority before he be of Age to enjoy my within mentioned Land, that, then my other two Sons, John & W’m Manly shall have the said Land equally to be divided between them & their Heirs forever.”
Thomas Steel at his Age of 16 entered into the Lands and took the Profits thereof, and lived till he had almost attained his Age of 21, & died without Issue; After whose Death John Manly entered into the Lands and died in Possession leaving Issue the Def’t.
The Lessor of the Pl’t is Samuel Hallows Son & Heir of Matthew Hallows, who was Son & Heir of Samuel Hallows who was eldest Brother of the said John Hallows.
Q’r. What Estate Thomas Steel had in those Lands by y’e Will of his Mother, and whether upon his dying before 21 tho’ in Possession, the Lands should go to Manly? And if the Lands shall remain over upon Thomas Steel’s dying before 21
Q’r how his Issue could have inherited if he had had any?
I am of Opinion, that Thomas Steel by Virtue of the Will and Codicil of his Mother Restitue Manly, (taking it for granted the Will and Codicil were duly executed according to the Laws in Virginia), took an Estate in Fee Simple, but subject to the Contingency of his dying in his Minority before he should be of Age to enjoy the Land devised, and if he died in his Minority before he should be of Age to enjoy it, then y’e Land by the Codicil was devised over to John and William Manly in Fee as Tenants in common by Way of executory Devise.
Mr. Hallows Title depends upon the Construction of those Words in the Codicil ” If Thomas Steel die in his Minority before he be of Age to enjoy the Land devised,” if by those words Thomas Steel’s Death before 21 is to be understood, Mr. Hallows will have no title because Tho’s Steel did die before his Age of 21; and in that Case if Thomas Steel had had Children they could not have taken this Estate; w’ch is so hard a Construction, that it can’t be imagin’d the Mother intended it should be so – But if those Words in y’e Codicil shall be refer’d to the Words of the Will [25] whereby, by the Devise that y’e 3 Children with the Estates should remain in y’e Hands of her Extor, till they should come of the Age of 16 years, and that then they should have their Estates that – that was the time of Enjoyment intended by the Codicil, then after Thomas Steel came to 16 he was seized in Fee absolutely, and the Executory Devise over to John & W’m Manly could never arise, but Mr. Hallows as Heir-at-Law to Thomas Steel will be entitled to these Lands.
If upon Thomas Steels coming into Possession he had an absolute Fee Simple in the Lands Q’r whether the Lessor of the Plt. hath not a good Title.
And I apprehend this last Construction is the right Construction and is inforced by its obviating that Hardship, in some Measure, which the other Construction would introduce, in Relation to the Defeating y’e Children of Thomas Steel, because it is not unreasonable to think that the Mother did not intend her Son should marry before 16 and if not he could have no Children to be defeated by the Devise over. And therefore upon the whole, if Mr. Hallows proves his Pedigree plainly, I am of Opinion he hath a good Title to these Lands devised.
Lincolns Inn.

1723 Nov 29:
Letter from Robert Carter to William Dawkins, November 29, 1723
Robert Carter writes to London merchant William Dawkins November 29, 1723, that he has learned that Robert Jones has lost his case tried in England. He informs the merchant that he wishes to be involved without his name being connected with it in another case that will be appealed from the judgment of the General Court in Virginia to England. The case was brought by a wealthy “Esqr. Hallow’s,” who lives near Liverpool against the heirs of Manley in Virginia. Carter recused himself from sitting on the case because he had bought an estate from Manley, and reports that Edmund Jenings’s vote carried it before the council even though he is so old and infirm that he really does not know what he is voting on.

May the 30th, 1728

Samuel Hallows, Esqr.

Sir —

You would go near to condem me of di[s]respect if I did not return an answer to yours of the 24th: November Mr. Randolph has indeed valued your Lands at £700. but I dare Say it is a price he will never be able to procure for you If he can I am Sure I must not be the Purchaser The price what I offered is the utmost I will give. As for Clilton he did not die worth 500 Groats more than what he had in Virginia. I have a debt owing from that Estate which I am forced to Sue his Son for and do not yet See when I shall get my money who that other Gentleman is I can only guess. If you find his money better then mine I am very apprehensive you will think it proper to take it. Mr. Randolph is now coming for England, as for his Judgement of your Estate I shall not find fault with but from my information which I believe is rather better than his of the Circumstances of it I cannot Set it at so high an Esteem as he has done. Money is very hard to be raised in Virginia at this day Our Tobacco runs very Extreme low and we have no other way to re turn any Income from our Lands but by [illegible] that trade I hope if you have been under a misinformation as to the Value of your Estate you will not deem me ingracious when I tell you I cannot come up to your price Terms I am

Randolph was the colony’s agent to negotiate for the “grand Affair”; his mission would be successful. While Randolph would not leave for England until 1729, Carter had to write well in advance to get his letter aboard a ship sailing in the late summer so that it would reach England before Randolph.

If the bill of exchange is drawn on a bank, it is called a bank draft. If it is drawn on another party, it is called a trade draft. Sometimes a bill of exchange will simply be called a draft, but whereas a draft is always negotiable (transferable by endorsement), this is not necessarily true of a bill of exchange.

From 1661 Bath water was bottled and sold. . . . In the 18th century Bath became a much more genteel and fashionable place. It boomed in size. This was largely due to the efforts of Richard ‘Beau’ Nash 1674-1762 who was made Master of Ceremonies. Many fine buildings were erected in Bath. . . . A Pump Room was built in 1706. . . .

He and Richard Gildart undertook “a major reorginization of business with Maryland and Virginia . . . beginning in the early 1720’s [they] sent numerous factors to the region.” They established stores in which retail goods were sold, purchased the produce of the region, had it ready for loading when ships arrived, and also moved into the sale of slaves ( James A.

Mr John Pemberton
Sir,
I sent you by the True Blue Captain Berry fifty hogsheads of stemmed straight laid Tobaco . I have already told you the pleasing Story I had from Capt Fowler that he heard you say in Publick Company you would do my Business although you had declined being concerned for anybody else; therefore I go on in giving you the Trouble of my Consignments. Herein is a Bill of Lading for thirty hhds more on Board the Mayflower of Stemmed Straight laid tobo. Your advising that this Sort of Tobaco would do best at your Market hath incouraged me to ship so much of it to You. I have some in Loxam & some in Leatherland. Capt. Fowler will give you the Relation of the News that’s now stirring
-2 –
stirring, that many of the Ships both from London & the Outports are in no Expectation of getting near their Lodings; & its said in York and James Rivers Tobaco is much shorter than it is here. We can’t forbear pleasing ourselves with Hopes these Reports will have a good Influence upon the Markets as well for the Tobo already gone as for that which is still to — ship.
Herein I send an invoice for some goods which I would willingly have by the first Opportunity, Here is also a first bill of Exch of Mr. Burgesses for 15’1″8 and A second bill of his for £125″15″5 both drawn on Mr. Cunliff I have already advisd you of a bill of Excha.

Robert Carter generally used a return address of “Rappahannock” for the river on which he lived rather than “Corotoman,” the name of his home, on his correspondence, especially to merchants abroad. The county and colony have been added for clarity.
The last two paragraphs on the second page of this draft letter are in a different hand than the text that precedes. Apparently Carter started the draft with one clerk, and finished with another. The change in hand is indicated by a change in the color of the text.
[1] The True Blue was commanded by Captain Berry in 1732; she may have been owned by Liverpool merchant John Pemberton. ( Survey Report 05336 summarizing “Admiralty-Miscellanea, Register of Passes, 1731-1732 found in the microfilms of the Virginia Colonial Records Project, Albert and Shirley Small Special Collections Library, University of Virginia . See Carter to John Pemberton , March 1 , 1732, and Carter to Pemberton , April 12, 1732.)
[2] The Content was a Liverpool ship owned by John Pemberton and commanded by various masters including captains Stephenson (1721) , Fowler (1723), and Morton (1727). (Wright. Letters of Robert Carter. . . . pp. 92, 93, 102 ; and Carter to Pemberton, February 14, 1721, and June 28, 1727 .

[3] A bill of lading is “an official detailed receipt given by the master of a merchant vessel to the person consigning the goods, by which he makes himself responsible for their safe delivery to the consignee. This document, being the legal proof of ownership of the goods, is often deposited with a creditor as security for money advanced.” ( Oxford English Dictionary Online . Oxford University Press. )
[4] Carter first mentions the Mayflower in a letter to Foster Cunliff of June 24 1731 , noting that a Captain Fowler commanded her. Other mentions in letters to Cunliff and John Pemberton, both Liverpool merchants, indicate that city probably was the vessel’s home port. There were a number of vessels of this name sailing from various British ports that appear in the records of the Virginia Colonial Records Project, but two that seem pertinent are: Survey Report 06445 summarizing “Public Record Office Class: Adm. 68/196. Greenwich Hospital: General Accounts. the Names of Ships and The Accounts Paid for Sixpences at the Port of London, 5 October 1731 to 26 August 1737” and Survey Report 05336 summarizing “Public Record Office Class: Adm. 7/78.Admiralty-Miscellanea, Register of Passes, 1731-1733.”
[5] Captain Edward Loxam commanded a vessel named the Loyalty in 1729-1732. James Tarleton commanded a vessel of that name in 1731. ( Survey Reports 04587 and 09727, Virginia Colonial Records Project, Albert and Shirley Small Special Collections Library, University of Virginia. See also Carter’s letters to John Pemberton April 15, 1730 , and August 4, 1731 .)
[6] Captain Nathaniel Leatherland commanded the William & James in June 20, 1729, and the Samuel & Jane in 1732. In 1727 he commanded the Penelope , owned by John Pemberton, when it was captured by a Spanish ship and Pemberton filed a claim for £2488. ( Carterto the freighters of the ship Rose, April 11 and June 29, 1729, ; Carter to Pemberton July 13, 1732 ; and Survey Report 02046 summarizing “House of Lords Record Office Class Main Papers 1735 May 13.

[7] Out port means “a port outside a particular place; any port other than the main port of a country, etc.; spec[ically]. a British port other than London.” ( Oxford English Dictionary Online )
[8] A bill of exchange is a kind of check or promissory note without interest. It is used primarily in international trade, and is a written order by one person to pay another a specific sum on a specific date sometime in the future. If the bill of exchange is drawn on a bank, it is called a bank draft. If it is drawn on another party, it is called a trade draft. Sometimes a bill of exchange will simply be called a draft, but whereas a draft is always negotiable (transferable by endorsement), this is not necessarily true of a bill of exchange. (See “Bill of Exchange” in the online Dictionary of Financial Scam Terms: the Truth vs. the Scam. )
[9] Foster Cunliffe (d. 1767) was a merchant and prominent citizen of Liverpool who worked to expand manufacturing and the capacity of the harbor; he served a number of terms as mayor. He and Richard Gildart undertook “a major reorginization of business with Maryland and Virginia . . . beginning in the early 1720’s [they] sent numerous factors to the region.” They established stores in which retail goods were sold, purchased the produce of the region, had it ready for loading when ships arrived, and also moved into the sale of slaves. ( James A. Picton, ed. Liverpool Municipal Archives and Records. . . . [Liverpool, 1907.] pp. 27, 31, 79, 90, 96, etc. and Paul G. Clemens. “The Rise of Liverpool, 1665-1750.” Economic History Review. 24[May 1976]:211-225. )
[10] Samuel Hallows (Hallowes) was a great nephew of John Hallowes, an early landholder in Northumberland and later, Westmoreland County, who was usually identified as of “Nomini” in Westmoreland County. Samuel Hallows lived in Ashworth, County Lancaster, England. The tract in which Carter was interested may have been that of 2400 acres acquired from Hallowes in 1733 by Thomas Lee. Carter had written Hallows 1728 May 30 that he would not buy the tract of land. (“Major John Hallowes, 1615-1657” in Norris. Westmoreland County, Virginia. pp. 99-102. )
[11] Thomas Lee (1690-1750) of Westmoreland County was the son of Richard Lee II, and nephew of Edmund Jenings; he would build “Stratford,” and succeed Carter on the Council. For a good article on Thomas Lee, see “Thomas Lee of Stratford 1690-1750” by Jeanne A. Calhoun on Stratford plantation’s website. ( Burton J. Hendrick. The Lees of Virginia: Biography of a Family.

1771 Nov 13:  From George Washington to Harrison Manley, 13 November 1771
To Harrison Manley
[Mount Vernon] Novr 13th 1771.Sir,
Inclosed you will receive a Copy of the Act Impowering your Grandfather to sell certain Intaild Lands—There being no printed copy of it, I was obliged to have recourse to the Inrolld Bills in the possession of the Clerk of the House of Burgesses, and consequently pay the Fee established by our Assembly (which is 15/) an expence I would have saved you, by copying it myself, if the private Acts of that date had been Printed; but it seems they are not.1 Colo. Carter’s Escheat of Hallowss Land is not among the records in the Secretary’s Office, for this you will be obliged to apply to the Proprietor’s office;2 and Mr Everard, the principal clerk in the Secretary’s, being constantly engaged with the Court business I could not get him to search for the Paper’s, and decree in favour of Hallows against Manley’s heir—I attempted it myself, but for want of knowledge in their Records, I could not trace the proceedings regularly on; though I found where the Suit was commenced in April 1720 by Hallows, against George Eskridge Guardian to your Father3—I shall probably go to Williamsburg again in Feby as the Assembly, it is suppos’d, will then meet; and shall find the Clerks more at leizure to search for the Papers you want, or if this will be delaying the matter longer than you would choose, I could write to Mr Everard by the Post, who I dare say would send transcrips from the records of every thing necessary to illucidate the point you want to know.
Herewith you will receive the Notes &ca agreeable to your Memm and the Treasurers rect for the Sum you sent by me, but he would not receive the Acct as the 61 Hhds of relanded Tobo should mutilated be a credit to the Country mutilated was money actually received, or ought to have been so, mutilatedlaced to the Country credit as the Warehouses belongd to mutilated—I offer’d to pay the difference, that is the £2.0.8, but he said this would answer no purpose, as the Acct must be fresh stated, at which time it would do equally well to receive the Ballance, and requested me to bring down the Acct with the alteration I have here mentioned, that he may enter a proper state of it in his Books. I am, Sir Yr Very Hble Servt
Go: Washington

ALS, DLC:GW. Harrison Manley (d. 1773) was the son of John Manley (died c.1750) and Sarah Harrison Manley (d. 1785). In Fairfax County Manley owned a small tract of land on the southwestern part of Mount Vernon Neck which GW was finally able to purchase in 1786. This tract, along with a larger one he was to acquire the same year from Penelope French, would complete GW’s acquisition of the entire neck of land originally granted in the seventeenth century to Nicholas Spencer and John Washington.
1. The October 1712 session of the assembly passed “An Act to enable William Manley, gent. to sell and dispose of certain entailed Lands and Tenements lying in the County of Westmoreland, on settling other Lands and Tenements lying in the said County, of which he is seized in fee, to the same uses” (4 Hening 36). Only the title of the act is recorded in Hening. The copy of the act attested by Richard Buckner, clerk of the House of Burgesses in 1712, is in the Virginia Session Laws, 1710–12, P.R.O., C.O. 5/1386, ff. 32–34, in Microfilm Collection of Early State Records. The act permitted William Manley, because he had “no personal Estate wherewith to support himself and his family . . . [and had contracted] Great Debts . . . and hath not wherewithall to Sattisfye the said Debts,” to sell 2,200 acres of entailed land in Westmoreland County. This land was patented by John Whiston (Whittstone) in 1667. Manley was instead to settle 1,600 acres of other land in the county, which he held in fee simple under a 1650 patent of John Hollows (Hollis), to be entailed. One of the conditions under which this act could be declared void was if it ran contrary to the interests of “any other person or persons Claiming under the above named John Hallows.
2. Col. Robert (King) Carter (1663–1732) served as agent for the Fairfaxes’ Northern Neck Proprietary from 1702 to 1711 and again from 1722 to 1732.
3. Thomas Everard (1719–1781) held a number of important posts, among them clerk of the General Court. The office of the deputy secretary of the colony, Thomas Nelson (1715–1787), issued land patents. The George Eskridge who acted as guardian to Harrison Manley’s father John Manley was probably the same man—a Westmoreland County lawyer—who served as guardian to GW’s mother, Mary Ball Washington, and godfather to GW. Eskridge died in 1735.
John Hollows (Hollis), an early justice and burgess from Westmoreland County, in 1650 patented 2,400 acres on the Potomac River at the mouth of Nomini Creek. His granddaughter, Restitute Whiston (Whittstone), inherited the property, and upon her death in 1687 she left this tract of land to her oldest son, Thomas Steele, Jr., with the proviso that in case of his death before he reached his majority the land was to be divided between her two younger sons, John and William Manley. Young Steele died before he reached the age of 21, leaving no heirs, and John Manley, Restitute Whiston Manley’s only surviving son, took possession. A suit was brought by Samuel Hollows, the heir of John Hollows’s older brother, for recovery of the land, and the case was sent to England for an opinion. On 28 Mar. 1722 Sir Robert Raymond ruled that the plaintiff, Hollows, had “a good Title to these Lands devised” (Barton, Virginia Colonial Decisions, 2:1326–27). The land was bought by Thomas Lee in 1732 and became part of his Stratford Hall plantation. See also Eaton, Westmoreland Atlas, 22, 46, 52, and Lee, Lee Chronicle, 64.

VIII. Possible Descendant – John Hollis b. abt. 1700

(Note:  See page for John Hollis b. 1700.  There is no direct evidence John Hollis b. 1700 is a descendant of Maj. John Hallowes b. 1612-15, but there is circumstantial evidence.  John Hallowes dies in 1657 with at least 3 male children (possibly more).  His son William Hollis has been shown to have several children of his own, one of his line goes to Delaware, the others in his line appear to stay in the Maryland/Virginia areas.

In Y-DNA testing, descendants of two different sons of John Hollis b. 1700 (James and Moses), match descendants of William Going b. abt.  1682.  In fact, at this time, all descendants of William Going b. abt 1682 and John Hollis b. 1700 who have published their Y-DNA results match each other.

The significance of this is that John Hollis b. 1700 would have that same Y-DNA as his two sons (if two different sons of his have that same Y-DNA – its highly unlikely two different Going men had affairs with Moses’ wife and conceived all his children, and then did the same with James Hollis’ wife).

Due to  the age difference in William Going b. abt 1782 and John Hollis b. 1700, John Hollis could be a biological son of William Going or one of his brothers out of Stafford Co, Va, but, it could be the other way around, maybe the Going brothers/family were the biological sons of one of the Hollis/Hallowes men from further back.

There are some Hollis researchers who claim John Hollis b. 1700 came over from England to the Americas in 1740, as there is a record of a John Hollis arriving in 1740.  The problem with this is that there is a record of John Hollis posting bond on Catherine Padderson’s will in 1739 (this is William Going b. 1682’s widow who had remarried).

Additionally, it does not explain the matching Y-DNA between the Hollis and Going families.  If both James Hollis and Moses Hollis (sons of John Hollis b. 1700) have descendants with Y-DNA that match descendants of William Going b. 1682, then that means John Hollis b. 1700 has that same Y-DNA, and since the Going men and the Hollis men all have connections with Stafford Co, Va – it is most likely that the “mixing” of these two families occurred some in 1700 (when John Hollis b. 1700 was born), or before that date.

Thomas Going was documented in Virginia since 1693 when he was involved in a lawsuit with Abraham Smith for Defamation in Westmoreland County, Virginia.  John Going, William Going, and James Going were all listed in the militia of Stafford County, Virginia in 1701/02 as dragoons.

It is possible that the Hollis and Going families lived in the Northern Neck of Virginia and Maryland (both along the Potomac River dividing Maryland and Virginia).  Both families have records of people being “marriners” (John Hallowes b. 1615 and Thomas Going b. 1660 and John Going b. 1700).  It would not have been difficult for them to move up and down the Potomac and Chesapeak Bay doing business along the water ways and finding land along the water.

There is a record of a John Gowing arriving in James County, Virginia in 1635.  In 1638 John Hallowes (this is likely the father of Maj. John Hallowes) purchased land in Charles County, Virginia, adjacent to James County, Virginia.  In 1640 John Hallowes sells his land in Virginia and appears back in Maryland.  It is unknown what happened with John Gowing during this time, but the next time his name is seen is in Maryland.

In January 1650 John Hallowes transports himself from Maryland to Northumberland County, Virginia on the mouth of Canawoman Creek (in Nomini Bay).  In October 1650, Walter Broadhurst, a friend and neighbor of John Hallowes, transports John “Goane” (Gowing) from Maryland to Northumberland County, Virginia – “on the mouth of Canawoman Creek” (in Nomini Bay).  Among those also transported by Walter Broadhurst were William Hardigg, Robert Beard, Ann Knowles, Hump. Farmar, and John Piper, all who were residents of Maryland who had several dealings with John Hallowes b. 1615 shown on this page above.   This was a transport of people from Maryland’s colony, to Virginia’s colony, meaning those people listed as being transported had been living in Maryland prior to this transport.

This is at least some evidence that there was likely contact between Going and Hollis families prior to 1700.  These families may have lived near each other starting some time between 1640 to 1650 until 1740 in the Northern Neck of Virginia and Maryland during this time period.    Since there was a “non-paternal” event that mixed the two families Y-DNA at some point, this likely occurred some time between 1640-1700 in the Northern Neck of Virginia and Maryland.

IX. (For Reference): History Timeline in Virginia and Maryland

HISTORY NOTE: 1606 – 1624: Virginia Company of London. King James I in 1606 granted responsibility for England’s New World colonization to the Virginia Company, which became incorporated as a joint stock company by a proprietary charter drawn up in 1606. There were two competing branches of the Virginia Company and each hoped to establish a colony in Virginia in order to exploit gold (which the region did not actually have), to establish a base of support for English privateering against Spanish ships, and to spread Protestantism to the New World in competition with Spain’s spread of Catholicism.

HISTORY NOTE: 1610 – 1614: The First Anglo–Powhatan War, between the Powhatan and the English colonists, lasted from 1610 to 1614. De la Warr sent George Percy with 70 men to attack the Paspahegh capital, burning the houses and cutting down their cornfields. They killed 65 to 75, and captured one of Wowinchopunk’s wives and her children. Returning downstream, the English threw the children overboard, and shot out “their Braynes in the water”. The queen was put to the sword in Jamestown. The Paspahegh never recovered from this attack, and abandoned their town.

HISTORY NOTE: 1624: In 1624, the Virginia Company’s charter was revoked and the colony transferred to royal authority as a crown colony, but the elected representatives in Jamestown continued to exercise a fair amount of power. Under royal authority, the colony began to expand to the North and West with additional settlements.

HISTORY NOTE: 1622 – 1632: Second Anglo-Powhatan War. Opechancanough maintained a friendly face to the colony, and finally even met with an English minister to give the appearance of his imminent conversion to Christianity. Then on Friday, March 22, 1622, his subjects, planted among the settlements, struck without warning, in what is now known as the Indian Massacre of 1622. A third of the colony were wiped out that day; were it not for last minute warnings by Christianized natives, a higher toll would have been certain.

HISTORY NOTE: 1631: Claiborne sailed for Kent Island on 28 May 1631 with indentured servants recruited in London and money for his trading post

HISTORY NOTE: 1632: Royal Grant and Charter for the new colony of Maryland was granted to Cecilius Calvert, on 20 June 1632

HISTORY NOTE: 1635: A Maryland commissioner named Thomas Cornwallis swept the Chesapeake for illegal traders and captured one of Claiborne’s pinnaces in the Pocomoke Sound. Claiborne tried to recover it by force, but was defeated; although he retained his settlement on Kent Island. These were the first naval battles in North American waters, on 23 April and 10 May 1635; three Virginians were killed.
(Note: John Hollis b. 1612-1615 is involved in the investigation of the attack).

HISTORY NOTE: 1638: In May 1638, fresh from his defeat over Kent Island, Claiborne received a commission from the Providence Land Company, who were advised by his old friend Maurice Thomson, to create a new colony on Ruatan Island off the coast of Honduras in the Caribbean Sea. At the time, Honduras itself was a part of Spain’s Kingdom of Guatemala, and Spanish settlements dominated the mainland of Central America. Claiborne optimistically called his new colony Rich Island, but Spanish power in the area was too strong and the colony was destroyed in 1642.

HISTORY NOTE: 1639-40: In the spring of 1639, King Charles I accompanied his forces to the Scottish border to end the rebellion known as the Bishops’ War. But, after an inconclusive military campaign, he accepted the offered Scottish truce: the Pacification of Berwick. The truce proved temporary, and a second war followed in the middle of 1640. This time, a Scots army defeated Charles’s forces in the north, then captured Newcastle. Charles eventually agreed not to interfere with Scotland’s religion and paid the Scots’ war-expenses.

HISTORY NOTE: 1642-1651: The English Civil War (1642–1651) was a series of armed conflicts and political machinations between Parliamentarians (“Roundheads” – Cromwell) and Royalists (“Cavaliers” – Charles II) over, principally, the manner of England’s government.
First English Civil War (1642–46)
Second English Civil War (1648–49)
Third English Civil War (1649–51)

HISTORY NOTE: 1644 – 1646: Third Anglo-Powhatan War. After twelve years of peace following the Indian Wars of 1622-1632, another Anglo–Powhatan War began on March 18, 1644, as a last effort by the remnants of the Powhatan Confederacy, still under Opechancanough, to dislodge the English settlers of the Virginia Colony. Around 500 colonists were killed, but that number represented a relatively low percent of the overall population, as opposed to the earlier massacre (the 1622 attack had wiped out a third; that of 1644 barely a tenth). However, Opechancanough, still preferring to use Powhatan tactics, did not make any major follow-up to this attack.

HISTORY NOTE: 1676: Bacon’s Rebellion. Indians had begun attacking encroaching settlers as they expanded to the north and west. Serious fighting broke out when settlers responded to violence with a counter-attack against the wrong tribe, which further extended the violence. Berkeley did not assist the settlers in their fight. Many settlers and historians believe Berkeley’s refusal to fight the Indians stemmed from his investments in the fur trade. Large scale fighting would have cut off the Indian suppliers Berkeley’s investment relied on. Nathaniel Bacon organized his own militia of settlers who retaliated against the Indians. Bacon became very popular as the primary opponent of Berkeley, not only on the issue of Indians, but on other issues as well. Berkeley condemned Bacon as a rebel, but pardoned him after Bacon won a seat in the House of Burgesses and accepted it peacefully. After a lack of reform, Bacon rebelled outright, captured Jamestown, and took control of the colony for several months. The incident became known as Bacon’s Rebellion. Berkeley returned himself to power with the help of the English militia. Bacon burned Jamestown before abandoning it and continued his rebellion, but died of disease. Berkeley severely crushed the remaining rebels.
In response to Berkeley’s harsh repression of the rebels, the English government removed him from office. After the burning of Jamestown, the capital was temporarily moved to Middle Plantation, located on the high ground of the Virginia Peninsula equidistant from the James and York Rivers.
