1600-15 John Gowing arrives in Virginia in 1635

John Gowing b. abt 1600 – 15

Parents:

Unk

Children:

(Note:  It is unknown if John Gowing b. 1600-15 had any children.  The following are noted in Virginia, and appear to have been transported from Maryland, or are not noted as being transported – meaning possibly born in Virginia.  They are the age that his children would be – a best guess based on information available).  

John Goane b est 1625-30
William Gowin b. est 1625-30
Jane Gowen b. est 1638-43
Christopher Gowin b. 1649

Siblings:

Thomas Gowen b. 1617  (Note:  This is not confirmed – this is a guess based on them arriving about a month apart from eachother in Virginia).

FACTS:

John Gowing may have been the original immigrant in the Gowing line that lived in the Northern Neck of Virginia in the early 1700s.

Later, it appears that John Gowing may have moved to Maryland some time between 1635 to 1650.  He is noted in the patent below dated Oct 18, 1650, as arriving again in Virginia, this time on Currioman Bay in Westmoreland County, Virginia, at the mouth of Canawoman Creek.  He arrives with several people who are known to have been transported from Maryland to Virginia.  This appears to be a transport of people from the Maryland colony to the colony in Virginia (just across the river, basically).

1650 Oct 18 – John Goane is transported to Virginia by Walter Broadhurst, Gent., who receives 500 acres, on S. side of Potomeck R., beg. at a point on the W. side of Poore Jack Cr., extending nigh the main river course NW to a point on the mouth of Conawoman Cr., which divides same from land of William Hardigg etc., to an Indian cleerfield, etc., 18  Oct 1650, p 249 Trans of 10 pers: Robert Beard, William Enson, Ann Knowles, Richard Broadman, Hump.

Other John Gowen’s:  (Note:  The following records from 1686 to 1698 in York County, Virginia, are for an older John Gowin than the one born to William and Ann in 1668 as he is at least 21 years of age in 1686 – and considering he had a “former servant” – John Marshall, he is likely at least 28-35 years of age by 1686 – placing his year of birth around 1651 to 1658 at youngest – possibly a sibling of William Gowin who had a son named John in 1668 and possibly a sibling of Christopher Gowin in York Co, Va who was born about 1649).  The various Going/Gowen/Gowin/Gawen’s in the Virginia/Maryland area are:

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.

Gowen connection to Hollis Family:  (Note:  John Gowing and John Hallowes – or their descendants – may have had a family relationship.  The Going and Hollis families appear to have lived in the same counties from possibly 1640 to 1840 (possibly up to 200 years).  They are documented to have been in eachother’s deeds, wills, probate, etc, and lived in the same counties for at least 100 years – 1739 to 1840.  If John Gowing and John Hallowes are ancestors of William Going b. 1682 and John Hollis b. 1700, then it is actually about 200 years they lived near each other).

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 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.

It is possible that a young Going son may have married a Hollis daughter, had a baby son, and then the parents may have died tragically.  If this is the case, the grandparents may have adopted the child and brought it up with the Hollis name, or the other way around (Hollis son married Going daughter).  Or it could have just been an affair with two teens (Going and Hollis), and the parents of the unwed daughter brought up the child as their own, giving it the grandparent’s surname.   Since the families were close, and stayed together for a long period of time, I would assume there was a marital relationship somewhere along the way, and would assume the first scenario – but I have not located it yet.   Either way, some type of family relationship was formed, and the families stayed close for several generations in Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina.

Possible Relatives and Descendants of John Gowen: (Note:  None of the following people are confirmed as relatives.  With the same surname, it is possible, even likely, a few might be related to John or each other.  Most listed below either arrived or are first noted as being in Virginia or Maryland in the mid 1600s (1635-1679).  A couple – William and Robert – arrived in northern colonies (Main and Massachusetts) about 1651-52.  There is no indication any of their descendants travelled south to Virginia or Maryland, but I list them just in case new information changes that assumption).

William Gowen b. abt 1614 arrived in Maine about 1651-52. http://person.ancestry.com/tree/63971727/person/44112588705/facts (Note:  Not likely.  No indication any descendants of this William Gowen made their way to Virginia or Maryland).  
Thomas Gowen b. abt 1617  (Note:  18 yr old who arrived on the Globe in Virginia in August of 1635 – unknown where in Virginia). (Note:  Possible – he is noted as arriving in Virginia about a month before John Gowing.  No other records of this Thomas are known at this time, but worth considering in case new information is found).

Possible Relationships of above Gowen/Going families: (Note:  Reminder, many times a person may have “arrived” in Maryland, but it did not mean they arrived from overseas.  They often would moved from the colony of Virginia, and move to Maryland, or move from Maryland and arrive in Virginia.  The notation would indicate that they “arrived” to the colony in question – which did not mean they came from overseas – they may have arrived earlier in the Americas, or may have even been born in the Americas – just in another colony.  Keeping this in mind, the following relationships are possible).

(Great Vowell Shift:  Also keep in mind that the English language was going through the “Great Vowell Shift” from about 1550-1700.  This caused words and names to be pronounced differently periodically as the language and accents changed.  Since words were spelled phonetically prior to 1830-50, then the spellings of names may have differred quite a bit more than expected based on the pronunciation of names prior to the “vowell shift” in relation to how the language was pronounced before and after the “vowell shift” – meaning the vowell’s “o”, “a”, “e”, and “u” should all be considered as viable vowells used to pronounce and spell the “Gowen” names).
