Keith family info

1617 Rev George Keith, or Keth, who Smith sytles “a Scotschman who professed scholarship,” was for a time a minister at Bermuda; but came to Virginia in 1617 in the ship “George.” In the census of 1624-25 his “Muster” includes himself, aged 40 years; James Whiting, aged 16, and John Keth, aged 11, all of whom came in the “George.” In 1626 Mr. Geo. Keith owned 100 acres, which was planted, at Elizabeth City. Mrs. Susan Keith was reported among the dead at James City in 1624. This was probbly a first wife of Rev George Keith. Keth or Keith’s Creek, so often referred to in the grants, is believed to have derived its name from him.

1697 Sept – Sep. 1697 – Charles Co., Md. Court. Henry Norris vs. Thomas Barron, of Charles Co., planter. William Stone, atty. for Norris; William Dent, atty. for Barron. Norris alleged that he had posted bond for William Keete in the amount of 3000 pounds of tobacco, and to ensure that Norris was reimbursed on the bond, Keete assigned to Norris several debts owed to Keete, including a debt of 1204 pounds of tobacco that Thomas Barron owed to Keete. Norris further alleged that on June 10, 1696, Barron promised (apparently an oral promise) that he would pay Norris 800 pounds of tobacco (part of ye aforesaid sum of 1204 pounds of tobacco), but that Barron had not paid the 800 pounds of tobacco although Norris had requested that he do so.
Barron appeared at the Sep. 1697 court, and denied that he obligated himself to pay Norris the 800 pounds of tobacco. The parties then put on witnesses to support their positions [the names of the witnesses and the nature of their testimony is not given.] After hearing the evidence, the Court ordered that Norris recover from Barron the 800 pounds of tobacco sued for, plus 1029 pounds of tobacco for his costs and charges.
Source: Charles Co., Md. Court and Land Records, Liber V, pp. 251-2.
Comment: The reason the court costs were so high is that the losing party had to pay for the witnesses’ attendance at court.

It only says he arrived in the colony. In reviewing the Hollis family, there were several times that the Hollis family travelled back and forth from the Maryland Colony to the Virginia Colony, receiving land grants when they moved across the Potomac River from one colony to the other. Since this does not say Cornelius Keith came from Ireland or Great Britain, the possibility that he came from Maryland, or another American colony, to Virginia is an open question).

1728 November 16, – Col. William Byrd visited with the Cornelius Keith family: on his return trip after surveying the dividing line between Virginia and North Carolina. Byrd gave a most bleak description of their living conditions in his “Histories of the Dividing Line betwixt Virginia and North Carolina.” …. “We gave orders that the horses should pass Roanoke river at Monisep ford, while most of the baggage was transported in a canoe. We landed at the plantation of Cornelius Keith, where I beheld the wretchedest scene of poverty I had ever met with in this happy part of the world. The man, his wife and six small children, lived in a pen, like so many cattle, without any roof over their heads but that of heaven. And this was their airy residence in the day time, but then there was a fodder stack not far from this inclosure, in which the whole family sheltered themselves at night and in bad weather. However, it was almost worth while to be as poor as this man was, to be as perfectly contented. All his wants proceeded from indolence, and not from misfortune. He had good land, as well as good health and good limbs to work it, and, besides, had a trade very useful to all the inhabitants round about. He could make and set up quern stones very well, and had proper materials for that purpose just at hand, if he could have taken the pains to fetch them. There is no other kind of mills in those remote parts, and, therefore, if the man would have worked at his trade, he might have lived very comfortably. The poor woman had a little more industry, and spun cotton enough to make a thin covering for her own and her children’s nakedness. I am sorry to say it, but idleness is the general character of the men in the southern parts of this colony as well as in North Carolina. The air is so mild, and the soil so fruitful, that very little labour is required to fill their bellies, especially where the woods afford such plenty of game. These advantages discharge the men from the necessity of killing themselves with work, and then for the other article of raiment, a very little of that will suffice in so temperate a climate. But so much as is absolutely necessary falls to the good women’s share to provide. They all spin, weave and knit, whereby they make a good shift to clothe the whole family; and to their credit be it recorded, many of them do it very completely, and thereby reproach their husbands’ laziness in the most inoffensive way, that is to say, by discovering a better spirit of industry in themselves….”

Order Books 1753-1757 Prince William County, Va.

James (Rev.) KEITH was born about 1696/97 in Peterhead, Aberdeen, Scotland, the son of George Keith who was an uncle and tutor of the Earl Marischal and a professor at Marischal College in Aberdeen. He married Mary Isham RANDOLPH 2 Mar 1732/3 (this date is questionable) near Germantown, Virginia, Hamilton Parish, Prince William County (now Fauquier). Mary was born in 1718 (date also questionable) in Virginia, and died after August, 1772 in Leeds Parish, Fauquier County, Virginia. She was the daughter of Thomas (of Tuckahoe) RANDOLPH and Judith FLEMING. Some claim Parson Keith died December 10, 1752 but we have found no documentation.  (See:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Randolph_of_Tuckahoe  ).

James Keith’s will was proved June 25, 1753, Manassas Court House, Prince William County, Minute Book 1752-53, p 163, but Will Book with copy of will is now lost. He and his wife are buried under the chancel of the Old Elk Run Church, Fauquier County, Virginia (according to Baird).

Parson Keith was a divinity student at Marischal College, Aberdeen, Scotland. He fought for the Stuart cause in 1719, then with a price on his head, escaped to France, and finally emigrated to Virginia about 1727. He returned to England to be ordained a Priest by the Bishop of London and returned in 1729 as he was paid 20 pounds by royal bounty on March 21, 1729 for his passage to Virginia as a minister (see Virginia Colonial Records Project at Library of Virginia, on line). He became Rector of Henrico Parish, VA, prior to 1732, then rector of Hamilton Parish from 1745 till his death.

Mary Isham RANDOLPH, child of Thomas (of Tuckahoe) RANDOLPH and Judith FLEMING descends from two famous families, Isham and Randolph, among the first English settlers to arrive in Virginia. She is also the first cousin once removed of President Thomas Jefferson.

Mary is reported to have eloped with an Irishman, Enoch Arden, the slave overseer of her uncle Isham’s Dungeness plantation, “a dirty plebian, without any kind of merit” according to William Byrd. They were married and had a child. Her family discovered their hiding place on Elk Island in the James River, killed Arden and the baby and took Mary back to Tuckahoe, which “shattered Mary’s sanity.” The story is confirmed in the diary of Colonel William Byrd of Westover following his visit to Tuckahoe in September 1732.

Some years later after she had married Parson Keith, she received a letter supposedly from Arden, “triggering a final bout of insanity from which she never recovered.” Had the letter been valid, it would have meant her children with Parson Keith were illegitimate. The issue was never resolved. Mary lived her last years with her granddaughter Eliza Marshall (Mrs. Rawleigh Colston), the Chief Justice John Marshall’s eldest sister, and she corroborated the story for James Paxton for his book, The Marshall Family.  (For more information, see:  http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/style/longterm/books/chap1/johnmarshall.htm?noredirect=on  ); (and see:  https://www.gutenberg.org/files/40388/40388-h/40388-h.htm  ).
