1725-35 Drury Going of Brunswick Co, Va

Drury Going b. abt 1725-1735 of Brunswick County, Virginia.  Appears to be the orphan who was bound out in Brunswick County.

Parents:

James Going b. abt 1683 possibly but – Unknown – (Note: based on assumed siblings, it appears these may be out of the Stafford County, Virginia group.  But, on the other hand, there also appears to be a connection with the Underwood, Jackson, Lanier and Barber families that were from the New Kent County and Hanover County, Virginia areas – which is where Jack Goin’s line is from.  So these may be out of that line).  

Children:  (Unknown)

Siblings:

James Gowen born about 1720
Thomas Gowen born about 1722 (In 1736 was bound to Ralph Jackson in Brunswick, Va).
John Gowen born about 1723 (In 1736 was bound to Ralph Jackson in Brunswick, Va).
Elsoner Gowen born about 1725 (In 1740 was bound to Ralph Jackson in Brunswick, Va).
William Gowen born about 1726 (in 1737 was bound to John Straughan in Stafford, Va)(This William Gowen does appear to be out of the Stafford County, Virginia group based on where he was when bound out.  If the other Goings in this group of “siblings” are in the line of Jack Goin – then William is not their sibling).  
Cave Gowen born about 1727 (In 1734 was bound to James Vaughan in Brunswick, Va).
Drury Gowen born about 1729 (In 1740 was bound to Ralph Jackson in Brunswick, Va).

(Note:  Uncertain of this Drury Going’s parents or ancestry.  I have assumed that all the Going/Gowen type names that were bound out in Brunswick and Fairfax/Prince William Counties, Virginia are from the same parents.  This may be incorrect.   Five of them,  Thomas, John, Elsoner, Drury, and Cave – were all bound out in Brunswick County, Virginia within a few years of eachother.  If their father had died, they would be considered orphans.   It is possible that the mother bound them out to learn a trade/occupation.  Catherine Padderson (widow of William Going b. abt 1682) and Cornelius Keith (father of Mary Keith who had married John Going b. abt 1700) signed as witnesses to the will of Thomas Stroud in 1738.  So it appears the Going family may have begun their move down to the Virginia/North Carolina state line some time prior to that).  

(Note: Regardless of WHICH Drury this is, what was his relationship to James Goen? Both mentioned in Inventory of Underwood’s estate. Drury as having land adjacent to Underwood’s land, and James as a buyer at the estate.
James Gowen b. 1720 m. Amy Gowing was living in Brunswick Co, Va at the time. He also had a son named James Gowing b. abt 1742 – so maybe it was the son at the estate sale – but either way – what was relation of Drury to this James Gowen? Was this James a brother of Drury – old enough that he did not need to be placed with a guardian or apprenticed when his father died?  Or is there another relationship here?).  

FACTS and EVENTS:

Brunswick County, Va
Greensville County, Va

The clusters of Going families that lived nearby in the 1750s were:

1) John Going b. about 1700 who married Mary Keith – his family lived in Lunenburg County, Virginia in the 1750s – in an area that later became Mecklenburg County, Virginia (This appears to be the John Going who was the son of William Going b. abt 1681 of Stafford County, Virginia).
2)  Drury Going and James Going who lived in Brunswick County, Virginia that later becomes Greensville County, Virginia.  (The parental line of Drury and James Going is unknown).
3) Edward Going, Michael Going, Thomas Going, and Joseph Going who were living further south in Granville County, North Carolina around the Tar River and Taylor’s Creek area (this appears to the be group of Going’s who came from Henrico and Hanover County, Virginia).
4) Alexander Going and his family who were living in the Orange County, North Carolina area.  (Alexander Going was another child of William Going b. 1681 of Stafford County, Virginia).
5)  William Gowen and his family who lived in the Bedford County,Virginia area.  (The parental line of this William Gowen is unknown).
6) William Going m. to Anna Statia Sullivan, Moses Going, and Aaron Going living in Goochland County, Virginia.  (The parental line of this William Going is unknown).
7) William Gowen and his family that lived in the “Grassy Creek” area of Granville County, North Carolina.  (The parental line of the “Grassy Creek” Going family is unknown).

(Note re Going/Gowen lines:  At least some of the Going/Gowen lines appear to have come out of Gloucester County and New Kent County, Virginia.  Unfortunately, records before the 1860s in Gloucester County, Virginia, and New Kent County, Virginia, have been destroyed.  Some state-wide records prior to the 1860s from those counties, for land grants, indicate that some Going families were living in those counties.  But since the county records were destroyed, it might not be possible to piece together where several of the above Going lines came from).

(Info from GRF):

Drury Gowen, [James5, Edward, Jr4, Edward3, William2, Mihil1] son of James Gowen, was born about 1748, probably in Granville County. His father moved back to Brunswick County, Virginia about 1762. Drury Gowen was married about 1769, wife’s name unknown. When Greensville County was organized from Brunswick County in 1781, Drury was living in the new county.
“Drury Going” was enumerated as the head of a household of four in the 1783 census of Greensville County, page 55, adjacent to Thomas Going, according to “Heads of Families, Virginia, 1790.”
“Drury Going” was a taxpayer in Greensville County in 1787, according to “The 1787 Census of Virginia.” page 778. “Drury Going” was bondsman for the marriage of Robert Brooks Corn to Jinsey Jeffers March 26, 1795 in Greensville County. Robert Brooks Corn had been bondsman for the marriage of Mark Going, son of Drury Gowen, September 29, 1794. “Mark Going” appeared as a taxpayer in adjoining Southampton County in 1830, rendering a tax on “three pigs and Indian land.” For him to have Indian land, his mother would have had to have been a member of the Nottaway Indian tribe, a group that observed matriarchal succession.
Drury Gowen was regarded by Paul Heinegg as possibly the father of:

Edmund Going born about 1770

Sherwood Going born about 1772

Allen Going born about 1773

Mark Going born about 1775
