BLAND 1
f l . JOHN1 BLAND (1573-1632) of Syth Lane, London in the Parish of St. Antholin’s, the tenth son of Adam Bland, married Susan Duclere (1590 in Hamburg—1 February 1664). He acquired four shares of stock in the Virginia Company from David Waterhouse, 15 September 1618, but as he did not propose to settle in Virginia with the status of Planter, he was classified as an Adventurer (investor) and as such was entitled to 100 acres in Virginia for each share of stock, with the privilege of doubling this allowance under certain conditions as a second dividend.
From the beginning Bland was active in the Company’s affairs, associating himself with the group loyal to Sir Edwin Sandys, and as he resided in London the year round was at hand to attend to details of the business of a colony across the seas. He served on various committees from time to time, was part owner of at least one vessel plying between England and Virginia, sent supplies to the colonists at his own expense and on 23 June 1623, was one of four men added to the Company’s Council for Virginia.8
In order to liquidate his rights to land in Virginia, John1 Bland, upon joining the Company, was associated with a group of Adventurers, headed by Sir John Wolstenholme, who established “Martin’s Hundred,” a particular plantation in the area, later James City County, and the associates in this venture received on 30 January 1621/22 a patent for 20,000 acres and the promise of an additional 20,000 acres when the settlement was sufficiently peopled. At the same time 1500 acres were allotted for schools and churches, 100 acres for glebe land and 50 acres were to be assigned for every person remaining in Virginia for 3 years.0
In January 1618/19, 220 colonists in the Guift of God arrived in Virginia to settle “Martin’s Hundred.”
John1 Bland died suddenly leaving a large family and a considerable estate. His will, 24 September 1627-20 April 1632, England, makes no mention of his Virginia interests but in numerous bequests, names seven of his seventeen children.” Three of his sons came to Virginia.
Issue: 2. Mary2 (b. 1607) married Emanuel, fourth son of Sir Peter Proby (later Lord Carysfoot), Lord Mayor of London; 3. Susan2 married Thomas Pierson; 4. Thomas2 (d. 1678) a Royalist, became Receiver General of York; 5. JOHN2 ; 6. EDWARD2 ; 7. Anne2 married Stephen Jackson; 8. Elizabeth2 married the Reverend William Beare, Rector of Cowley; 9. Herbert2 (d. young); 10. Adam2 died 164-, on his way to Virginia; 11. Robert2 (d. 1702) married Mary Hinton of Weybrough; 12. William2 (d. 1649) merchant in Spain; 13.

5. JOHN2 BLAND (d. 1680) (John1), the younger, a merchant trading in the West Indies and Virginia, with estates both in England and Virginia, first came to the colony about 1635 to see to the Bland interests. His two brothers later handled the family affairs in the colony, but following the deaths of both, Edward3 Bland, son of Edward2 and nephew of John2 deeded to him, 20 March 1674/75 the plantation of 8000 acres known as “Kimages” in the Parish of Westover, Charles City. This was originally Berkeley Hundred, settled, 1619 under terms similar to those granted the patentees of Martin’s Hundred? John2 married Sarah, daughter of Giles Green, Esq. of Applington, England, an able and courageous woman, who, following the tragic death of her son Giles3 in Virginia, crossed the ocean alone, 1678, armed with power of attorney to handle and settle her husband’s affairs in the colony.
When these affairs were further complicated by the death of John2, his co-executor in England Thomas Povey also gave her power of attorney/
The will of John2 Bland, 3 May 1680-23 June 1680 (also 27 May 1682) England, names his wife and Thomas Povey, executors, provides for payment of his debts and “a competent provision for my daughterin-law Frances Bland and my grandson John Bland, her son, yet being in his infancy.“0
Issue: 19. John3 “died at the age of 13 years;” 20. GILES3.
6. EDWARD2 BLAND (d. 1652) (John1) of London, merchant, purchased from Captain William Peirce, 7 July 1646, 2000 acres on Lawne’s Creek in the area which became Surry County, 1652. By 10 March 1647, he evidently was living in Virginia, for he patented that year 1300 acres “on the south side of the James River near Upper Chippokes” and named among the headrights: “Edward Bland, Ja. Bland and Eliza. Bland.“H On 27 August 1650 he “set out with Abraham Wood, Sackford Brewster and Elias Pennant from Fort Henry at the head of the Appomattox River and made a discovery to the ‘Fals of Bland’ ” in the present New River. A published account of this journey, 1652, was dedicated to Sir John Danvers.
Edward2 Bland married in England, Jane, daughter of his cousin Gregory Bland. On 9 May 1652, as “late the wife of Edward Bland,” she was granted a patent for his total land holdings, being “4300 acres in James City [Surry area] near the head of Upper Chippokes Creek.”1
Issue: 21. EDWARD3 .

I l l 201-207, 271; for conveyance of “Kimages” see H VI 304 F Power of attorney recorded in Isle of Wight Co., 10 Nov. 1679, names the following Bland plantations: Bartlett (Berkeley), Rimocky, Herring Creek Mill, Jerdone (Jordans), Westover, Upper Chippokes, Sunken Marsh, Basse’s Choice, Jamestown Lott and Lawne’s Creek; see also John Bennett Boddie, Seventeenth Century Isle of Wight County, Virginia 582-583; VCA VIII 95, 96 “Waters I 814; for issue, see Charles Campbell, The Bland Papers (1840) 146 and Philip Slaughter, A History of Bristol Parish, 151-152, 154 H C P 160, 171).
16. THEODORICK2 BLAND (bapt. 16 January 1629-23 April 1671) baptized at St. Antholin’s in London where his parents later were interred, first a merchant with his brother Edward2 at St. Luars, Spain and in the Canary Islands, came to Virginia, 1653, following his brother’s death in order to manage the family’s large mercantile interests, control of which was vested in his brother John2. While attending to these duties he served as Justice of Charles City, 1664-65, Burgess from the County and Speaker of the House, 1659-60, member of the Council, 1664, and was “overseer of the horse ferry boate” operating from Westover to the south side of the James River, 1664. In 1666, Theodorick2 Bland purchased “Westover” from Sir John Pawlett, whose brother Captain Thomas Pawlett owned the plantation, 1636, originally laid out, 1619, for Henry, fourth Lord De La Warr, as “heir to his father the late Governor of Virginia.”1, His tomb in the old churchyard now adjoining the garden at “Westover” is covered by a stone erected by his “most disconsolate widow, a daughter of Richard Bennett, Esq.” which recites this in Latin together with the fact of his death at the age of 41 years. His wife was 4. Anne Bennett, daughter of Richard Bennett, 11 acting Governor of Virginia, 1652-1655, and his wife Ann (Utie)
(see UTIE-BENNETT). She married (2) St. Leger Codd.
Issue: 22. THEODORICK3 ; 23. RICHARD3 ; 24. JOHN3.
20. GILES3 BLAND (d. 1676) (John2, John1) came to Virginia to act as agent for his father, following the death of his uncle Theodorick2, 1671. A young “hot-head,” he arrived on the turbulent scene preceding Bacon’s Rebellion and briefly was a colorful figure, defying Governor Berkeley and members of the Council to the point that he was placed under arrest and suspended from the important office of Collector of Customs, to which he had been appointed. When Bacon organized his forces, Giles3 allied himself with leaders of the Rebellion and following the collapse of that brief defiance, he suffered the same ignominious fate to which the others were condemned. Tried at a Court Martial at “Green Spring,” 8 March 1676/77, he was convicted of treason and summarily hanged.” At this point Giles’s3 mother Sarah Bland took hold of the family interests and came to Virginia, 1678, to unravel affairs, greatly complicated by her son’s precipitate acts.
Giles3 Bland married Frances daughter of Thomas Povey, named in his father’s will.

Edward3 Bland died intestate, married Margaret , who married (2) Thomas Tanner. Margaret sold her one-third part of “Kimages” to Benjamin Harrison, 6 August 1723.
Issue: 26. John4 d.s.p. intestate; 27. Sarah4, heir at law of her brother, inherited his two-thirds part of “Kimages,” married (1) Edward New and (2) Alexander Horton, who joined her in a deed, 6 February 1722, conveying 1530 acres of “Kimages” to Benjamin Harrison. Sarah4 had issue by (1) John5 who engaged in an extended law suit over the title to “Kimages,” contending that the 1681 deed from Sarah Bland entailed the land to the heirs of Edward3 “forever” and that the land could not lawfully be sold. The suit settled by agreement, 1752, gave John5 new land in exchange and left the Harrisons in possession of “Kimages,” better known as “Berkeley.”P
22. THEODORICK3 BLAND (1663-1700) (Theodorick2, John1), heir to the “Westover” plantation, shared his inheritance with his brother and together they sold 1200 acres of the estate, 1688, to William Byrd I.Q He was Surveyor for Charles City, 1680, and laid out the plat for the town of Williamsburg 1699.” He married Margaret .

1623 April 14 – James City, Virginia – 28. Christopher Davison to John Ferrar. Hopes he will put a favourable construction upon his proceedings, because of his long sickness and absence from most business since his arrival. Will send by the next ship a perfect catalogue of names of all people that died or were slain by the Indians since the massacre, and of all living. [See p. 57, No. 2.] Cannot yet pay Mr. Bland his 30 Ib. of tobacco, because he has not yet received so much from his five tenants, all that are alive, nor one grain of corn to help them.
Davison’s brother, Thos. Finch, died soon after his arrival. Trusts the Company will consider his great loss by the want of 14 or 15 tenants, and certain cows promised two years ago. The Margaret and John, accounted a lost ship, arrived about 7th or 8th of April in great distress. About the 10th, the ship sent by Mr. Gookin, called (he thinks) the Providence, came to Newport News. The Seaflower, though long expected, has not yet arrived, her supply of corn and other provisions extraordinarily desired Sends answers to as many of the petitions as have been ordered. [ Wanting.

1664 – In the notes to the Abstract of Isle of Wight County records as published in The William and Mary Quarterly appeared the statement that James Day (died 1700) married Mary, the daughter of Mary, who was herself the daughter of Edward Bennett of London and who married first Thomas Bland and then Luke Cropley. The statement seemed a logical inference from the fact that the Day family possessed the land patented by Thomas and Mary Bland in 1664. (Patent dated 1664 but not recorded until 1668). The statement has been accepted as fact and used as a basis for genealogical trees. Some data, however, Indicate that Mary Day may not have been the daughter of Mary Bennett Bland Cropley.

Irby replyed He was goeing upon life and death; Mr Irby (sayd I) yu have a boate to goe about yo’r occasions w’ch is as well. Come lend me y’or horse; After a little pause, well, sayd he, I will lend yu my horse provided yu wilbe very carefull of him, but for all he can do (pointing to Capt Hill) should nev’r have him upon any account:

1666 – Robert Paulett, minister at Martin’s Hundred. He was also a physician and surgeon. He did not accept the office of councillor. Captain Thomas Paulett, Burgess for “Argal’s Guifte ” in 1619, was a councillor in 1621. In 1623 he was granted 2,000 acres of land in Charles City county, which included the noted seat ” Westover.” Dying in 1643, he bequeathed it to his brother, Sir John Paulett, who sold it in 1666 to Theodrick Bland for ^”175 sterling, who bequeathed it to his eldest son, Theodrick, who admitted into joint tenancy his brother, Richard. They sold it in 1688 to Colonel William Byrd, the first of the name and family in Virginia, for the consideration of ^”800 sterling and 10,000 pounds of tobacco and casks. A church (of which a graveyard with tombs in dicates the site), and the county buildings near the banks of James river, remained at “Westover” until sometime in the 18th century.
The Virginia Company of London 1619-1624 vol. 1. p. 140.

1666 – The mention of “her heirs” In both the land grant and the will of Thomas Bland indicates, but not necessarily proves, that Mary already had children by a previous husband. She was 34 years of age when Thomas Bland made his will In 1666. Major-General Richard Bennett in his will directed a payment to James Day. In the same year James Day ot London leased land in Isle ot Wight County, Virginia, to William Webb. William Webb was son-in-law of Thomas Taberer, Day’s attorney for registering the deed. In 1681 Taberer himself patented land next to land then in the possession of James Day and apparently the same as that granted the Blands in 1664. The various items, taken together, raise the question as to whether, James Day might not have been the son of Mary Bennett Bland Cropley by an earlier Day marriage.

1758 July 6 – Letter of Robert Munford, 1758 July 6.
(Abstract: Contains a letter from Robert Munford, Camp near Fort Cumberland, to his uncle Col. Theo[dorick] Bland, Prince George County, briefly describing his experiences at Fort Cumberland. In addition, Munford comments on the ability of Colonel [William Byrd] and expenses for recruiting & forage. Lastly, Munford includes a postscript addressed to Mrs. Bland.).
“Hond. Sr.
Had opportunities offered as frequently as inclination would have induced me to write to you, you might have read a letter from every encampmt. After being delayed at Winchester five or six weeks longer than expected, ( in which time I was ordered express to Williamsburg, and allow’d but a day after my return to prepare) we push’d Off into the wide Becan. I was permitted to walk every step of the way to this humble fort, to eat little and lay hard, over mountains, thro’ mud and water, yet as merry and hearty as ever. Our flankers, and sentrys pretend they saw the enemy daily, but they never approach’d us. A detachment is this moment ordered off to clear a road thirty miles, sand our companies to cover the working party. We are in fine scalping ground I assure you, the guns pop about us, and you may see the yellow prick up their ears like dear every moment. Our Colo. is an example of fortitude in either danger or herdships, and by his easy polite behavior has gain’d not only the regard but affection of both officers and soldiers. He has kindly invited me to his table for the campaign, offer’d me any sum of money I may have occasion for , without charging either principal or interest, and signified his approbation of my conduct hitherto, in such a manner as is to my advantage. In passing any recruiting acct. I was allow’d 18/ per man, you may judge too much I was looser, when several officers had 40/.
Colo. Charles Garter junr. Has a horse of mine in keeping ‘till my return; where he may remain, if you think proper. The Batt money and forrage money allow’d me amounts to £66. In every thing possible, I shall be upon the frugal [scheme?]. You may depend upon hearing by all opportunities from dr. sr.
Yr. truly affect. and ever obliged nephew
Ro Munford

Hond. Madm.
Tho’ I’ve hardly a moment at my own disposal, I can’t omit sending a few words to my dear aunt. Employ’d from Sun to Sun, yet from light to night am I mindful of my dear distant friends. That you and your’s May enjoy every blessing that heaven can bestow is the tribute of a heart sincerely
