1701/02 – “William Gowing, James Gowing and John Gowing” were included in the roster of a company of dragoons commanded by Capt. John West and Lt. John Peake. They were on duty in Stafford County in 1701, according to “Virginia Colonial Soldiers” by Lloyd Bockstruck. The dragoons who were mounted infantrymen, received their name from their weapons. The troops carried a musket called the “Dragon” and accordingly were called dragoons.  Va Military.     (Note:  John Gowing appears to have been born about 1680 and one of three brothers (John, William, and James) who were members of a company of dragoons in Stafford County, Virginia.  In 1710 this same group along with Thomas Gowing was involved in a land transaction 1215 acres of land in Stafford County, Virginia.  Thomas Gowing’s transactions and court records are noted starting in 1693 – so it is assumed that Thomas Gowing is the father of this group of Gowings).

1707 Aug 5:  PAGE 210 On August 5, 1707, John Cave (16??-1721) a carpenter from King and Queen County, had bought 300 acres from Sampson Darrell” “all that 300 acres of land lying on the South side of Potomack Creek in Stafford county bounded.. Northerly with Potomac creek Easterly with the lands of John Gowry, Thomas Gregg & Mr Waugh southerly and westerly with the land of Giles Travers the 300 acres being one half of 600 acres formerly sold by Capt William Heaberd to Capt John Norgrove by deed dated 6th day of Mar 1667 all which premises are now in the possession of John Cave by Virtgure of one Indenture of Bargain and sale to him there of made for the term of one year 12 sterling.”
John married Elizabeth Travers. In all likelihood the William Cave mentioned by the 1742 House of Burgesses was the son of John Cave.
Our knowledge of William is sketchy at best. He married Anne Travers, daughter of his neighbor, Giles Travers (16??-1717) their daughter, Elizabeth married Keene Withers. William Cave is mentioned in the 1724 tax record as owning one negro and 1,882 tobacco plants, making him a minor planter. On September 14, 1742, the will of William Cave was presented to the Stafford County, leaving all his land to his son James. The 1742 land tax records indicate that his executors paid tax on 800 acres of land.
In 1758 Andrew Edwards had married Elizabeth (Cave) Withers, daughter of John Cave.   Stafford County, Virginia Will Book M page 338-339 William Cave of Overwharton Parish,, Son James; Daughter Elizabeth Cave, wife Anne. Mr John Waugh executor of Will written 17 July 1742 will proved 14 Sep 1742.

1714 Nov 23:  On November 23, 1714 William Gowen and Evan Thomas receive a grant of 124 acres in Stafford County from the proprietors, members of the London and Plymouth Companies who receive a grant to all land between the 34th and the 45th parallels, from the Atlantic Ocean to 200 miles inland. At this time William Gowen makes his home in Overwharton Parish of Stafford County. The land is described as “lying on both sides of the main run of Jonathans Creek, which creek issues out of the west or upper side of the road lead of Occoquan River, beginning at a white oak on the west side of the run nearing to Dogue Island neck and in the line of Mr. Giles traverse,” according to Northern Neck Deed Book 5, page 8.  “William Going” and Evan Thomas receive Grant No. 60 for 124 acres November 23, 1714.

http://www.gunstonhall.org/georgemason/landholdings/moxham.html  ;  http://www.gunstonhall.org/georgemason/landholdings/land_patents.html  ;  This land received in 1714 by William Goin is the land where the historic Minnick House in Virginia is located:

Colonial Settlement:

The land where the Minnick House would later be constructed was first granted by The Right Honorable Catherine Lady Fairfax, who was the sole proprietor of the Northern Neck of Virginia at that time, to William Going and Evan Thomas on November 23, 1714. 1 The parcel comprised 124 acres, and was situated on both sides of Jonathan’s Creek, now known as Giles Run. In 1713, Going and Thomas obtained a warrant from Catherine Lady Fairfax to have the land surveyed. Going sold off the land between the two runs in 1724.2

This land is located about one mile north of the Occoquan River, and was separated from the river by a 1,000 acre tract patented by William Bourne (Boren) in 1666. 3 A 1729 survey dividing a portion the Bourne tract in equal halves identifies the location of a ferry crossing and depicts the road leading to it.4 This road, which passes directly in front of the Minnick House, was the primary north/south overland route through the area, and was known variously as the Potomac Path, Kings Highway, the road from Accotinck to Colchester, old stage road, and currently Old Colchester Road. 5

1731 – In 1731 Benjamin Sebastian was employed as overseer and collector of rents; he lived on Alexander’s Island. In a deposition he stated that he became a tenant to Alexander on promise of a lease, which he never got from Alexander in his life, but after his death, he got a lease from Gerrard Alexander, son of Robert, who inherited part of the land, (LRLS: 315)
Benjamin Sebastian listed the tenants living on Alexander’s land in 1731. They paid rents of 524 pounds of tobacco for 100 acres and twice that for a double lot of 200 acres. The tenants living below Four Mile Creek were: Judith Ballenger, James Going, Sarah Young, and Sarah Amos. Above the creek the tenants were: Edward Chubb, Richard Middleton, William Boylstone, John Straughan, Adam Straughan, Edward Earpe and Richard Wheeler. Robert Alexander received 6812 Pounds of tobacco yearly for the rent since Richard Middleton and William Boylstone had double lots.  Stafford Co, Va.

Above Four Mile Run lived Edward Chubb, Richard Middleton, William Boylstone, John Straughan, Adam Straughan, Edward Earpe and Richard Wheeler (ibid: 61-62).

On August 25, 1737 the Prince William County Court ordered that William Gowen be placed for apprentice.  On Oct 26, 1737, Truro Parish bound William Gowen to John Straughan.   http://www.pohick.org/vestrybook.html (p. 19-20).  William Gowen – an Orphan age 10, is bound to John Straughan until 21 yrs – to be taught how to read English, and taught the ministry of a Tanner.  Pohick Church – in Lorton, Virginia, Truro Parish Colonial Vestry Book (Church/Vestry of George Washington, George Mason, and other patriots). Truro Parish, Va.

(Additional info from): http://jg1758.blogspot.com/2012/08/newly-found-possibility-william-gowen.html ;  (Note:  William Gowing b. 1682 was married to Catherine Gowing (later Catherine Padderson when she remarried).  William Gowing died between November 1725 and March 1726.  The Stafford County Will Book K index does not show any will for him, only estate administration is noted – which means he likely died suddenly – and was not dying of an illness (or else he would have written a will if he was ill with death impending, with the number of properties and children he had).  William’s spouse Catherine remarried and becamed Catherine “Padderson” – it is estimated that she remarried around 1728, and she died around June of 1739 and she did leave a will naming some of her children.  Its possible that William Gowen b. 1727 was William Gowing born 1682’s child, but you would think that Catherine would have provided for him in her will since he was a minor at the time.  That leaves James Gowing b. 1683 as a possible parent.  He disappears from records after 1733 – meaning he possibly died that year.  Several of the Gowing children were bound out from 1734-1740).

1738 Oct 1739:   Catherine Patterson next appears October 23, 1738 in Brunswick County, Virginia where she, Mary King and Cornelius Keife/Keith are witnesses to the will of Thomas Stroud, according to Brunswick County Will Book 2, page 1.

1739 May 21 – Catherine Padderson writes her will May 21, 1739, and it is presented for probate July 23, 1739, indicating that her death date in the two-month period, according to “Prince William County Will Book C” by John Frederick Forman. The will leaves her estate, valued at £36:2:4.75, to two younger children and names her son John Gowen as administrator. The will reads:

“I, Catherine Padderson, being sick and weak in body. Unto my well beloved son, Elixander Going, one negro man named Robin and one horse and a horse colt and one cow and calf and a cow yearling and halph of my movable houshold stuf and one parcel of land whereon I now live containing sixty-six acres, it being part of a tract containing one hundred and thirty-two acres. Unto my well beloved daughter, Susannah Going, one negro man named Jackey and one mare and saddle, cow and calf and two cow yearlings and one feather bed and bolster, a rugg and one pare of blankits and half the household stuf. My crop of tob: which is now in my house after my debts is paid I bequeath to be equally divided between my son Elixander Going and my daughter Susannah Going. I leave my well beloved son, John Going, whole and sole executor of this, my last will and testament.

Probate records in Will Book C show:

“23, July, 1739. Presented in Court by John Going, sole executor herein named, who prays certificate for obtaining a probate thereof, but it being suggested that the deceased’s husband is living, on the motion of the said John Going and giving security for his just and faithful administration of the said deceased’s estate, certificate is granted him for obtaining letters of administration.” “Bond of John Going, William Scutt and John Hollis unto Denis McCarty, Gent., justice. For £100, 23 July, 1739. John Going is administrator of Catherine Padderson, deceased. John Going John Hollis William Scutt Witness: John Bowie, 23 July, 1739, Acknowledged and Ordered”  The inventory of the estate, which included two negro men valued at 25 pounds, totaled 36 pounds, 2 shillings, 4 3/4 pence and was presented to the court by John Gowen August 27, 1739. The account which was allowed and ordered by Prince William County Probate Court, read: “The estate of Catherine Pattison, deceased. To 2 levs. pd. Edwd. Barry 116 (tobo.) To pd. Capt.
