SUMMARY:

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 18).  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.

John Gawen witnesses a deed for Major William Wyatt, where he assigns to Hon. Nathaniel Bacon, Mr James Bray, & Mr Edward Bray “the whole of that estate . . . “.  Other witnesses were Edward Frisell, Thomas Richards in 1674 in York County, Virginia. (see note 30).

Movements to Maryland and Virginia: (Note: If this John Gowen is the parent of Esau Goeing and Thomas Gowing of Talbot County, Maryland and Westmoreland County, Virginia, then he may have moved back to Maryland to join his sons in 1679.  Thomas Going had moved to Talbot County, Maryland in 1671, and Esau Goeing is noted as living in Talbot County, Maryland in 1672).   John Gowen is noted as being in York County, Virginia in 1682, so he would not have stayed in Maryland long (if this is the same person).

John Gowen (Gawen) is mentioned in York County, Virginia records from 1683 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 in Middle Plantation (later renamed to Williamsburg) (44a, 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).

Possible death or movement:  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.

Appearance of Thomas Goen/Gowing and Esau Goeing in Westmoreland County, Virginia records:  IF Thomas and Esau are children of John Gowen, then they probably had moved to New Kent County, Virginia, or Gloucester County, Virginia from around 1675/80 to about 1706.  Both New Kent County, and Gloucester County had their court records, deeds, and wills destroyed by fires.  But both counties show “Gowen” names receiving land patents in the 1600s in the state-wide databases for “grants”.  Thomas Going and Esau Goeing both disappear from records from 1671/72 until 1693.  It fits that their records would disappear if those records were located in New Kent or Gloucester Counties, Virginia.  Possibly Thomas and Esau’s father had moved with them to one of those counties.  It may be that John Gowen was that father, and this is why the records in York County, Virginia from 1692-1698 do not refer to him as deceased . . . and why those records cease showing him present at any court cases after early 1691-1698, but still being mentioned in “assigned” cases.

Thomas Going starts purchasing and receiving land in 1707 in Stafford County, Virginia.  This may indicate the death date of John Gowen.  He may have sold John Gowen’s land in New Kent or Gloucester and then used those proceeds to obtain land and move to Stafford County, Virginia.

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. 1 ^, 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.

^ 1. The Rev. Rowland Jones, first rector of Bruton Parish (1674-1688) died on April 23, 1688, survived by sons Robert and William Jones (by his first wife, Elizabeth Jones, who had died in 1687); and by his second wife Ann [Lane?] Jones, and their two children Orlando and Anna Maria Jones. 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.
