Here being some discourse that was talked by the Indians Therefore it was ordered by the Commision of Stafford Court That Mr Burr Harris of this County should come to the house of John West to Examine them and the Indians doth declare that the great men of Maryland hath hired the Seneca Indians to kill the protestants nameing Coll Darnall Coll Pye, and Mr Boarman and further did sweare God Dam Mr Boarman for he is all one the Senecas And further doth declare that Mr Boarman did tell the Indians that the English would first of all kill the papists and then would kill all the Indians and did Crye to them And further doth declare that Coll Darnall Coll Pye and Mr Boareman did tell the Indians that they must make hast and kill the protestants before the shippes comes in For after the shippes come the protestants would kill all the papists and then all the Indians are hired also for that same purpose This is to give you all notice of a blow That will be given suddenly if not prevented by the Lord Gentlemen March the 21 88/9.
The above is a Copy of a paper brought me over by Mr John West and Ralph Platt which they have also spread abroad amongst the people here abouts and much incenced of the truth of it I have sent a Coppy of it to the honed Coll Pye and desired him to acquaint Coll Darnall with it, and to Consider of sending a few men into these parts for the quieting the people or else it may be a cause of brining over the Virginians which I suppose wants but small inviting yet am persuaded there is something a brewing amongst our Indians more then ordinary for they have asked what makes the Englishmen angry with them And that they intend to kill them as soone as they are all at the fort together with severall such things I desire you Gentlemen to send downe to Coll Digges and the rest of the honble Council to request the same to order some to range in these upper parts And that some of the Country Armes with some Amunicon may be sent up being these parts is soe very naked and lives at soe great a distance Which is the request of Yor servts John Addison

Stafford County had a Catholic settlement at Aquia Creek, home of George Brent. Parson John Waugh seized the opportunity to rid the area of Catholics.

1689 (VIRGINIA) Parson [John] WAUGH’S Tumult
..”But in Stafford there was another story. There the people abandoned their plantations and arrayed themselves in arms…The Maryland authorities apparently interpreted this activity as preparations for an invasion of their territory…The BRENTS who lived in Stafford for many years were Catholics. They had been discreet in their relations with their protestant neighbours, and had never been Molested…But Burr HARRISON’S news from Maryland offered an opportunity for fanatical agitation and the incumbent of Overwharton Parish took full advantage of it. This Parson John WAUGH had already been in trouble with the authorities for his lack of respect for the law. He was apparently a natural agitator, what was called at the time “of enthusiastic principles” and courted popularity. Egged on by his son-in-law, the second George MASON, WAUGH’S sermons now stirred the community to frenzy…Over these troubled waters Parson WAUGH rode the whirlwind. Beginning as a colonial Titus Oates, under the inspiration of his fellow enthusiast, John COODE, the whilom parson of Maryland who was about to lead a successful revolution in that province, WAUGH gradually developed into what appeared for a moment to be a menace to the Virginia government. From genereal thunder against the Catholics, he evolved the more dangerous thesis that there “being no King in England, there was no Government here,” and that the people should remain in arms in their own defence. This advice, smacking significantly of the doctrine which Lord Baltimore charged FENDALL with preaching in Stafford in 1681, was followed, the alarm spread to the Rappahannock settlements, and serious consequences were averted only by renewed vigorous action on the part of Messrs. SPENCER, ALLERTON and LEE. Assuming the authority of the entire council for the emergency, they…arrested the ring leaders, WAUGH, HARRISON, and WEST, forbade the parson to preach, and suspended George MASON from the command of the Stafford militia…Parson WAUGH was eventually brought before the General Court at Jamestown and there “made a publick & humble acknowledgement…with a hearty penitence for his former faults and a promised obedience for the future…”

Whereas there has been for many years past a cleared bridle path from the now dwelling Plantation of the sd Virlinda Harrison to a tract formerly laid out called Durham Town, being a place well known to some of Your Worships, of trade and commerce and constant harbor for shipping, and the sd Path leading from the sd Town to another harbor for shipping called the long Wharf, and also convenient for persons intending over Nanjemy Cr, the sd Path or Road is now so obstructed and turned by fences of sundry persons, not regarding the convenient of their neighbors and other travellers, that renders it most tedious and troublesome to pass from one harbor to the other, or else where along the river.

Last Friday evening July 12 a most terrible accident happened in Charles City County; when a violent thunder gust arose, and lightning struck the house of Col. Benjamin Harrison, of Berkley, which kill’d him, and his two youngest daughters. He lived some minutes, but tho’ a vein was opened by Dr Monger who happened to be on the spot, and was knock’d down by the lightning, but received little damage, it proved in vain, and he expired without speaking a word. His two daughters died instantly. The most melancholy affair was given a general concern, and particularly to all who were acquainted with the deceased. Col. Harrison had been many years a worthy representative of his county in assembly, and first in the commission of the peace, and his daughters very promising young ladies.

Alexander & Capt. Clifton being there I had not the opportunity to talk to her concerning it but Capt. Alexander went home on which I asked Capt. Clifton if he would walk out on purpose as my Wife might speak to her to know what alteration she wanted made and after I came home my wife told me and I wrote her one & carried both Wills up & read it to her and she said it was dust as she had told Mrs. Alexander and asked me how she how she could get it evidenced I told her that I would send for NICHOLAS SAVEN and his Wife but as she was better she might as well let it alone and come down when she was well and I would get it Evidenced for her but says she I won’t destroy this Will till I get the other evidence and I sign it on which I left the two Will with her and the Sunday after I saw Mr. Cad: Dade at Church and I asked him if he had seen the Will I had wrote for Mrs. McGill he told me he had and I says to him that it was wrote so bad that I was afraid it could not be read and he answered I could read it very well & I further understood whenever she & I talked about it that was the will she intended should stand and I heard her say that Capt.

I told her that I thought that if that was all the alteration he could do it at home she said if he could I should be mighty glad for she wanted no other alteration – for she liked everything very well and we come home and I told Mr. Alexander & he wrote her another Will making no other alterations but what I told him & the next day carried to her & the other Will & left them with her & a day or two before she was taken for Death I went to see her she asked me if I thought if she should die before she signed that Will whether it would stand good. I told her I thought not because she had got two other Wills signed by her she said that Will at Buddy Clifton’s can never stand because all the Evidences is Dead or Runaway but one I told her I thought that one was sufficient to prove that will she desired me to send my chair for her the first good day that came. I told her that Mr. Alexander was a going up the River but. the first good day after his return I would send for her and she desired I would for she said she should never be easy till she came down and signed that Will & leave it with you for I am forced to keep both my Wills in Prue’s Box for when I am sick they all come here & rummage every thing I have in the World. I have ordered Prue that if I should die before I took it from her to be sure and give it to Ruddy Clifton as soon as I am Dead for she said its the Will I want to stand and further this Deponent says not
