FACTS and NOTES:
Elizabeth Going was born in 1704 at Crannagh, Co Tipperary, Munster, Irish Republic. She was the daughter of Robert Going I and Mary Rowe. Elizabeth Going married Thomas Lanphier II, son of Thomas Lanphier I and Elizabeth Kyle, a 1726 at Liskeveen, Co Tipperary, Irish Republic.2 Elizabeth Going immigrated in May 1732 to Cape Henry, Virginia. She died a 1767.
Elizabeth Going lived in County Tipperary, Ireland before she emigrated. Her parents-in-lawThomas Lanphier I and his wife Elizabeth, sponsored Elizabeth Going when she was baptized.
At age sixty-three Elizabeth gave a lengthy, detailed deposition containing the family genealogy. The deposition was without dates except the current date. Elizabeth stated she immigrated with her family in 1738; this is six years after other sources had placed their immigration. A careful review of the other sources provided no indications to doubt their veracity either. One of those sources, a written account with the handwriting likely placing it in the first or second generation after the immigration, indicated Elizabeth’s son Going Lanphier immigrated to America at age five; Going is consistently noted as dying at age eighty-six in 1813, which means he immigrated in 1732. If the account of Going immigrating at age five is incorrect and his mother’s account of the immigration occurring in 1738 is correct then the following date changes need to be made to this genealogy: when Elizabeth immigrated her siblings were still alive; her sister-in-law Sarah had died; her father-in-law died the August before; and her mother-in-law was moving to a farm then.
Elizabeth probably died in Alexandria, VA.

NOTES on spouse THOMAS LANPHIER:
Thomas Lanphier II was born in 1699 at Ireland. He was the son of Thomas Lanphier I and Elizabeth Kyle. Thomas Lanphier II married Elizabeth Going, daughter of Robert Going I and Mary Rowe, a 1726 at Liskeveen, Co Tipperary, Irish Republic.4 Thomas Lanphier II immigrated in May 1732 to Cape Henry, Virginia. He died in 1741 at Port Tobacco, Charles Co, Maryland.
Thomas Lanphier may have been born in Parkstowne, County Tipperary, Munster, Republic of Ireland. He immigrated to America with his family and his nephew Henry Burgess. Thomas quarreled with the ship’s captain who brought them from Cobh, County Cork, Ireland to near Cape Henry, Princess Anne Co, VA. According to family tradition, Thomas immigrated to America with eleven servants and property amounting to 40,000 pounds sterling.
After settling briefly in Accomack Co, VA, they moved to Port Tobacco, MD where Thomas and Mr. Marshall ran a brewing establishment; whether this was a brewery or a tavern was unclear. Port Tobacco was Charles County, MD’s most important town for two centuries until the 1890s, at one time rivaling Williamsburg, VA and Philadelphia, PA as a colonial port. By the 1790s farm land silt filled the river at Port Tobacco making the town unreachable by large ships and signaling its future demise. The fatal blow came from an 1892 fire that burned the courthouse causing the village to become a ghost town.
The first inventory of Thomas’ estate was filed in Maryland on 23 March 1747; this inventory and a second one from 1748 were together valued at over fifty-three pounds. The inventories draw into question the date of his death and present a sharp contrast to the wealth with which he reportedly arrived in America.
