Westmoreland County, Virginia

(NOTE: 1653–Westmoreland County was created 5 July 1653 from Northumberland County.)

The English Civil War (1642–1651) was a series of armed conflicts and political machinations between Parliamentarians (“Roundheads” – Cromwell) and Royalists (“Cavaliers” – Charles II) over, principally, the manner of England’s government. Charles II was Catholic, and Maryland was the only Catholic Colony. The instability in England spilled over into Maryland during this time – this may have contributed some to move from Maryland to Virginia during this period).

Thomas Going was recorded as being brought to Maryland in 1671.  1671 May 13: Frances Stannton, recd 500 acres for transp Roger Pate, James Barber, Francis Lloyd, Richard Thompson, John Vincent, Thomas Going, William Ashby, Bartholmew Hayes, Richard Taylour and  Elizabeth Miles. Bryan O’Malley of Talbot County, Planter paid Frances Stannton to assign O’Malley the rights title and interest for the 500 acres. Wit. Richard May and Robert Ridgely.

1671 May 13 Thomas Going to Talbot Co MD

1672 Esau Goeing and his wife Ann Goeing are noted in service in Maryland. Source: 17:376 Film No: Husband of Ann, service by 1672;  MSA SC 4341- 1672 Goeing, Ann17:376 Film No: Wife of Esau Goeing, service by 1672; Anne, the wife of Esau Goeing proved rights to land for service provided in Talbot County, Maryland. Esau Goeing assigned his wife’s rights for her service to John Pitt in Talbot County, Maryland.

Note:  This transaction tells us a few things a) Anne Goeing was owed for her service – likely this was an indenture, meaning she started her indenture at least 4 years earlier (1668 or before). Since she was married, and selling her rights to her service, she was now free.  b) Esau Goeing married Anne Goeing, and as her husband, he was selling her rights due to her for her service.  Since he was contracting and married, he obviously was not under any indenture either – no documents have indicated Esau ever was a servant, nor have any documents indicated when Esau Goeing arrived in the Americas.  He may have been born in the Americas.

Relationship to Thomas Going – it appears this may be Thomas Going of Westmoreland Co, Va.  Both Thomas and Esau appear in records in Talbot County, Maryland about 1671/72.  Both then appear in records in Westmoreland County, Virginia in 1693.  This “suggests” they may be related in some fashion, but it is unknown how.1672-esau-goeing-and-ann-goeing-in-talbot-county-maryland-snip

1703 August 25 – the probate of the estate of Capt. Thomas Atwell revealed that “Thomas Goen” was listed among the creditors of the estate. Court: estate Thomas Atwell, 25 Aug 1703, , Westmoreland, Virginia, USA.”On August 25, 1703, the probate of the estate of Capt. Thomas Atwell revealed that “Thomas Goen” was listed among the creditors of the estate.”  http://www.freeafricanamericans.com/westmore.htm ; http://www.freeafricanamericans.com/Gibson_Gowen.htm  (Note:  Thomas Atwell’s spouse’s maiden name was Anne Youell (see:  http://www.colonial-settlers-md-va.us/getperson.php?personID=I025834&tree=Tree1 ).  Anne Youell’s father Thomas Youell, was married to Anne Sturman and an Anne Lee.  John Hallowes b. abt. 1586, was married to Ann Youell who came into court in Westmoreland County, Virginia in 1656 and stated she was the widow of Mr. John Hallowes (or Hollis). (Note – Thomas Atwell’s wife had connections with both the Sturman and Youell families, both very closely related to John Hallowes or Hollis b. abt. 1586 and his son John Hallowes or Hollis b. abt. 1612-15’s families – see: https://goyengoinggowengoyneandgone.com/1593-john-hallowes-carpenter/ ).   John Hallowes b. abt 1615 was first married to a Restitute Tew –  His 2nd marriage was to an Elizabeth Sturman (unk maiden name – she had previously been married to John Sturman).  John Sturman (her first husband) was the brother of Anne Sturman Youell who had married Thomas Youell – the same Thomas Youell who was father of Anne Youell who had married Thomas Atwell).  (see: https://goyengoinggowengoyneandgone.com/1613-to-1616-john-hollis-of-md-and-va/ ).  It is uncertain “which” Anne Youell and John Hollowes/Hollis these were that were married, but its obvious there was a family relation here.  Again, just as a reminder, the Y-DNA of the Gowen and Hollis families in the south are a match.  This appears to add additional evidence that the John Hollis b. abt. 1700 family is related to the John Hallowes b. abt. 1612-15 family).

1843-05 B13 Admin. of William Forbes & c. vs. Admix. of William Johnson & c. filed 1842
Orators: John A. Parker, administrator of William Forbes who was assignee of Francis Foushee and Frances his wife; Francis Froushee and Frances his wife; John A. Parker, assignee of Thomas E. Foushee who was devisee of Charles Beale who was one of the heirs of William J. Beale; Thomas E. Foushee; John W. Belfield, administrator of Ann H. Belfield; Jessee Ewell and Mildred his wife; James McPhearson,administrator of George Beale; George Brooke; Robert Beale, administrator of Reuben Beale; John Hamilton, administrator of Maria Hamilton.
On December 13, 1797, William Beale executed a deed conveying real and personal estate to Richard Parker and Thomas Beale for the use of himself and his wife Ann Beale during their lifetime. At their deaths, it was to go to the heirs of William Beale. After the death of William Beale, Ann Beale married George Christopher.
John Chilton instituted a suit against George Christopher. The judgment was levied against a slave, part of the estate. At that time Ann H. Belfield, Maria Hamilton, George Beale, George Brooke, Robert (by mistake) for Reuben Beale, Thomas Foushee (Francis) for Thomas E. Foushee, Francis Foushee, infants by Francis Foushee their guardian, and Jessee Ewell and Mildred his wife, being the heirs of William Beale, exhibited a bill in chancery. The judge awarded an injunction to prevent the sale of the slaves, except for the life of Ann Christopher. Then they would be returned to those entitled. Among them, one Alice was sold to William Johnson, secured by Richard Crask. The orators are informed that Thomas A. Gawne, administrator of William Johnson in right of his wife Peggy Gawne who was Peggy Johnson, the wife and administratrix of William Johnson, is in possession of the slave Alice and her four children. The orators were told that Thomas Gawne is not planning on giving the slaves to those who are entitled because of an informality in the bond. The orators are afraid that he will dispose of the property. Robert P. Anderson is the administrator of Richard Crask. This suit was dismissed.
Defendants: Thomas A. Gawne and Peggy his wife, Robert P. Anderson See Chancery Suit 1849-17.

1847-02 B15 Adm. of Margaret Weaver & c. vs. Admix. of William Johnson & c. filed 1843
Orators: Henry Weaver, administrator of Margaret Weaver, James Lyell, an infant by Henry Weaver his next friend, and Richard M. Lyell
Dozier Lyell departed this life sometime in 1825 possessed of a very considerable personal estate. In 1826, administration was granted to William Johnson, who gave his bond with Edward Spence, William Barnet, and Thomas S. Rice as securities. Dozier Lyell left surviving him James Lyell, Richard M. Lyell and Margaret Lyell, his children, and _ Lyell, his widow. Margaret Lyell intermarried with the orator Henry Weaver and departed this life in 1841. Administration was granted to her husband. William Johnson departed this life intestate, without having settled the estate of Dozier Lyell.
Administration of his estate was granted to his widow Margaret Johnson who gave bond with John Chandler, her security. Margaret Johnson settled what purported to be the estate of Dozier Lyell for William Johnson. The orators charge that this account is erroneous – the orators were not given a guardian and that no interest was reported. The orators wish that the settlement not be allowed. The estate was given to the administration of Benedict Johnson, with John Chandler and Robert Beale, Jr. as securities. Benedict Johnson has departed this life. The administration was granted to Robert Bailey. Margaret Johnson has intermarried with Thomas A. Gawen.
_ Lyell has married Benedict Johnson and survives him. Thomas A. Rice has died and John M. Branica is his administrator. William Barrett has died and John B. Carroll is his administrator.. Robert Beale, Jr. had died and Robert Murphy is his administrator.

1859-10 41 Alice Gawen vs. Adm. of William Gawen filed 1845
Oratrix: Alice Gawen, widow and relict of William Gawen
William Gawen, at the time of his death was possessed of several tracts of land, and a large personal estate. He directed in his will that all his estate be kept together under the management of his widow so long as she remain a widow, until the eldest son attains the age of 21 years. That son would get his portion. The oratrix’s marriage should not prejudice the rights of the oratrix to her 1/3 share. William Gawen departed this life in 1844 leaving the oratrix, his widow and children: Joseph Alexander Gawen, Catharine G. Gawen, Alice J. Gawen, Julia W. Gawen, William P. Gawen, James B Gawen, Thomas A. Gawen, and Robert H. Gawen, all infants. He left no provisions for the education and maintenance of the children.
The oratrix and the executor denounced the will. Lawrence Washington became administrator. The oratrix wants the court to issue a trust.
Defendants: Lawrence Washington, Joseph Alexander Gawen, Catharine G. Gawen, Alice J. Gawen, Julia W. Gawen, William P. Gawen, James B. Gawen, Thomas A. Gawen, and Robert H. Gawen

(Note:  It appears that John Hollis transported John Walton out of Maryland while he was deep in debt.  John Hollis was sued by several people for doing this.  My assumption is that John Walton was assigning this land to John Hollis as part of the repayment of that debt he owed to John Hollis for helping with that situation).  Later, in 1662 (after John Hollis’ death) a William Hollis is granted this 3900 acres (see below) – which seems to indicate that William Hollis must have been an heir of John Hollis.  See the transactions below for context:

1722 March 28: (COURT DECISION re 2400 acres devised to daughter Restitute Hallows m. Whiston)
B26 VIRGINIA COLONIAL DECISIONS
SIR ROBT. RAYMOND’S OPINION IN A CASE SENT FROM VIRGINIA IN 1722.
CASE INT HALLOWS & MANLY } EJECTMENT UPON SPECIAL VERDICT
John Hallows late of Rachdale in the County Palatine of Lancaster:, was seized of 2400 Acres of Land in Virginia & died so seized, leaving Issue, Restitute his Daughter & Heir. Restitute Hallows entered and intermarried with one Whiston & by him had Issue Restitute her Daughter and Heir and died seized. Restitute Whiston entered and intermarried with one Thomas Steel and by him, had Issue Thomas Steel her eldest Son & Heir; And afterwards intermarried with one Manly and had issue two sons by him John and William Manly And being a Widow at her Death made her last Will & Testament in Writing bearing Date the 30th Day of January 1687 [24] in these Words,
“I Give & Bequeath to my Son Thomas Steel that Tract of Land I now live on (y’e Land in Dispute) to him and his Heirs forever.
ltem it is my Will that my three Children with their Estates remain in the Hands of my Ex’r till they shall come of the Age of 16 Years & then to have their Estates;”
and the same Day made her Codicil in these Words
“It is my Will that if my Son Thomas Steel die in his Minority before he be of Age to enjoy my within mentioned Land, that, then my other two Sons, John & W’m Manly shall have the said Land equally to be divided between them & their Heirs forever.”
Thomas Steel at his Age of 16 entered into the Lands and took the Profits thereof, and lived till he had almost attained his Age of 21, & died without Issue; After whose Death John Manly entered into the Lands and died in Possession leaving Issue the Def’t.
The Lessor of the Pl’t is Samuel Hallows Son & Heir of Matthew Hallows, who was Son & Heir of Samuel Hallows who was eldest Brother of the said John Hallows.
Q’r. What Estate Thomas Steel had in those Lands by y’e Will of his Mother, and whether upon his dying before 21 tho’ in Possession, the Lands should go to Manly? And if the Lands shall remain over upon Thomas Steel’s dying before 21
Q’r how his Issue could have inherited if he had had any?
I am of Opinion, that Thomas Steel by Virtue of the Will and Codicil of his Mother Restitue Manly, (taking it for granted the Will and Codicil were duly executed according to the Laws in Virginia), took an Estate in Fee Simple, but subject to the Contingency of his dying in his Minority before he should be of Age to enjoy the Land devised, and if he died in his Minority before he should be of Age to enjoy it, then y’e Land by the Codicil was devised over to John and William Manly in Fee as Tenants in common by Way of executory Devise.
– Mr. Hallows Title depends upon the Construction of those Words in the Codicil ” If Thomas Steel die in his Minority before he be of Age to enjoy the Land devised,” if by those words Thomas Steel’s Death before 21 is to be understood, Mr. Hallows will have no title because Tho’s Steel did die before his Age of 21; and in that Case if Thomas Steel had had Children they could not have taken this Estate; w’ch is so hard a Construction, that it can’t be imagin’d the Mother intended it should be so – But if those Words in y’e Codicil shall be refer’d to the Words of the Will [25] whereby, by the Devise that y’e 3 Children with the Estates should remain in y’e Hands of her Extor, till they should come of the Age of 16 years, and that then they should have their Estates that – that was the time of Enjoyment intended by the Codicil, then after Thomas Steel came to 16 he was seized in Fee absolutely, and the Executory Devise over to John & W’m Manly could never arise, but Mr. Hallows as Heir-at-Law to Thomas Steel will be entitled to these Lands.
If upon Thomas Steels coming into Possession he had an absolute Fee Simple in the Lands Q’r whether the Lessor of the Plt. hath not a good Title.
And I apprehend this last Construction is the right Construction and is inforced by its obviating that Hardship, in some Measure, which the other Construction would introduce, in Relation to the Defeating y’e Children of Thomas Steel, because it is not unreasonable to think that the Mother did not intend her Son should marry before 16 and if not he could have no Children to be defeated by the Devise over. And therefore upon the whole, if Mr. Hallows proves his Pedigree plainly, I am of Opinion he hath a good Title to these Lands devised.
Lincolns Inn.

1723 Nov 29:
Letter from Robert Carter to William Dawkins, November 29, 1723
Robert Carter writes to London merchant William Dawkins November 29, 1723, that he has learned that Robert Jones has lost his case tried in England. He informs the merchant that he wishes to be involved without his name being connected with it in another case that will be appealed from the judgment of the General Court in Virginia to England. The case was brought by a wealthy “Esqr. Hallow’s,” who lives near Liverpool against the heirs of Manley in Virginia. Carter recused himself from sitting on the case because he had bought an estate from Manley, and reports that Edmund Jenings’s vote carried it before the council even though he is so old and infirm that he really does not know what he is voting on.

May the 30th, 1728

Samuel Hallows, Esqr.

Sir —

You would go near to condem me of di[s]respect if I did not return an answer to yours of the 24th: November Mr. Randolph has indeed valued your Lands at £700. but I dare Say it is a price he will never be able to procure for you If he can I am Sure I must not be the Purchaser The price what I offered is the utmost I will give. As for Clilton he did not die worth 500 Groats more than what he had in Virginia. I have a debt owing from that Estate which I am forced to Sue his Son for and do not yet See when I shall get my money who that other Gentleman is I can only guess. If you find his money better then mine I am very apprehensive you will think it proper to take it. Mr. Randolph is now coming for England, as for his Judgement of your Estate I shall not find fault with but from my information which I believe is rather better than his of the Circumstances of it I cannot Set it at so high an Esteem as he has done. Money is very hard to be raised in Virginia at this day Our Tobacco runs very Extreme low and we have no other way to re turn any Income from our Lands but by [illegible] that trade I hope if you have been under a misinformation as to the Value of your Estate you will not deem me ingracious when I tell you I cannot come up to your price Terms I am

Randolph was the colony’s agent to negotiate for the “grand Affair”; his mission would be successful. While Randolph would not leave for England until 1729, Carter had to write well in advance to get his letter aboard a ship sailing in the late summer so that it would reach England before Randolph.

The county and colony have been added for clarity to the heading on the draft.
[1] This may have been Elizabeth (Hamlin) Ravenscroft, wife of Thomas Ravenscroft who, originally trained as a carpenter, became a distinguished citizen and “held a number of public positions. He was sheriff of James City County in 1722, but in 1723 moved to Prince George County. . . . He was a burgess of Prince George in the assembly of 1727-34, and for a time in that of 1734-40, dying in 1736.”( “Thomas Ravenscroft ” on WikiTree, 7/14/2015 ; and “Ravenscroft Archaeological Site” of Colonial Williamsburg, 7/14/2015 .)
[2] A bill of exchange is a kind of check or promissory note without interest. It is used primarily in international trade, and is a written order by one person to pay another a specific sum on a specific date sometime in the future. If the bill of exchange is drawn on a bank, it is called a bank draft. If it is drawn on another party, it is called a trade draft. Sometimes a bill of exchange will simply be called a draft, but whereas a draft is always negotiable (transferable by endorsement), this is not necessarily true of a bill of exchange. (See “Bill of Exchange” in the online Dictionary of Financial Scam Terms: the Truth vs. the Scam. )
[3] Samuel Hallows (Hallowes) was a great-nephew of John Hallowes, an early landholder in Northumberland and later, Westmoreland County, who was usually identified as of “Nomini” in Westmoreland County.

They were certainly known to the Romans who built a temple there around 50 AD. . . . They also built a public baths which was supplied by the hot springs. . . . In the 60s and 70s AD a town grew up on the site of Bath . . .In the late 17th century Bath continued to be a quiet market town. It largely depended on its springs. From 1661 Bath water was bottled and sold. . . . In the 18th century Bath became a much more genteel and fashionable place. It boomed in size. This was largely due to the efforts of Richard ‘Beau’ Nash 1674-1762 who was made Master of Ceremonies. Many fine buildings were erected in Bath. . . . A Pump Room was built in 1706. . . . During the Summer Georgian Bath was full of rich visitors. They played cards, went to balls and horse racing, went walking and horse riding.

[2] Foster Cunliffe (d. 1767) was a merchant and prominent citizen of Liverpool who worked to expand manufacturing and the capacity of the harbor; he served a number of terms as mayor. He and Richard Gildart undertook “a major reorginization of business with Maryland and Virginia . . . beginning in the early 1720’s [they] sent numerous factors to the region.” They established stores in which retail goods were sold, purchased the produce of the region, had it ready for loading when ships arrived, and also moved into the sale of slaves ( James A.

Robert Carter writes to Liverpool merchant John Pemberton, June 9, 1732, to inform him of two shipments of tobacco, bills of exchange, and to enclose an invoice for goods (not present). Stories in the colony report that tobacco is in short supply and he hopes that will affect the market favorably.He requests Pemberton enquire of Samuel Hallows if it is true that he has sold an estate to Thomas Carter (Lee?) that he, Robert Carter, had tried previously to buy as he remains interested in it.

Mr John Pemberton
Sir,
I sent you by the True Blue Captain Berry fifty hogsheads of stemmed straight laid Tobaco . I have already told you the pleasing Story I had from Capt Fowler that he heard you say in Publick Company you would do my Business although you had declined being concerned for anybody else; therefore I go on in giving you the Trouble of my Consignments. Herein is a Bill of Lading for thirty hhds more on Board the Mayflower of Stemmed Straight laid tobo. Your advising that this Sort of Tobaco would do best at your Market hath incouraged me to ship so much of it to You. I have some in Loxam & some in Leatherland. Capt. Fowler will give you the Relation of the News that’s now stirring
-2 –
stirring, that many of the Ships both from London & the Outports are in no Expectation of getting near their Lodings; & its said in York and James Rivers Tobaco is much shorter than it is here. We can’t forbear pleasing ourselves with Hopes these Reports will have a good Influence upon the Markets as well for the Tobo already gone as for that which is still to — ship.
Herein I send an invoice for some goods which I would willingly have by the first Opportunity, Here is also a first bill of Exch of Mr. Burgesses for 15’1″8 and A second bill of his for £125″15″5 both drawn on Mr. Cunliff I have already advisd you of a bill of Excha.

Source copy consulted: Letter book, 1731 July 9-1732 July 13 , Robert Carter Papers (acc. no. 3807), Albert and Shirley Small Special Collections Library, University of Virginia.
Robert Carter generally used a return address of “Rappahannock” for the river on which he lived rather than “Corotoman,” the name of his home, on his correspondence, especially to merchants abroad. The county and colony have been added for clarity.
The last two paragraphs on the second page of this draft letter are in a different hand than the text that precedes. Apparently Carter started the draft with one clerk, and finished with another. The change in hand is indicated by a change in the color of the text.
[1] The True Blue was commanded by Captain Berry in 1732; she may have been owned by Liverpool merchant John Pemberton. ( Survey Report 05336 summarizing “Admiralty-Miscellanea, Register of Passes, 1731-1732 found in the microfilms of the Virginia Colonial Records Project, Albert and Shirley Small Special Collections Library, University of Virginia . See Carter to John Pemberton , March 1 , 1732, and Carter to Pemberton , April 12, 1732.)
[2] The Content was a Liverpool ship owned by John Pemberton and commanded by various masters including captains Stephenson (1721) , Fowler (1723), and Morton (1727). (Wright. Letters of Robert Carter. . . . pp. 92, 93, 102 ; and Carter to Pemberton, February 14, 1721, and June 28, 1727 . Also, Survey Report 05337 summarizing “Public Record Office Class: Adm. 7/80. “Admiralty-Miscellanea, Register of Passes, 1733-1736.” found in the microfilms of the Virginia Colonial Records Project, Albert and Shirley Small Special Collections Library, University of Virginia. .)
[3] A bill of lading is “an official detailed receipt given by the master of a merchant vessel to the person consigning the goods, by which he makes himself responsible for their safe delivery to the consignee. This document, being the legal proof of ownership of the goods, is often deposited with a creditor as security for money advanced.” ( Oxford English Dictionary Online . Oxford University Press. )
[4] Carter first mentions the Mayflower in a letter to Foster Cunliff of June 24 1731 , noting that a Captain Fowler commanded her. Other mentions in letters to Cunliff and John Pemberton, both Liverpool merchants, indicate that city probably was the vessel’s home port. There were a number of vessels of this name sailing from various British ports that appear in the records of the Virginia Colonial Records Project, but two that seem pertinent are: Survey Report 06445 summarizing “Public Record Office Class: Adm. 68/196. Greenwich Hospital: General Accounts. the Names of Ships and The Accounts Paid for Sixpences at the Port of London, 5 October 1731 to 26 August 1737” and Survey Report 05336 summarizing “Public Record Office Class: Adm. 7/78.Admiralty-Miscellanea, Register of Passes, 1731-1733.”
[5] Captain Edward Loxam commanded a vessel named the Loyalty in 1729-1732. James Tarleton commanded a vessel of that name in 1731. ( Survey Reports 04587 and 09727, Virginia Colonial Records Project, Albert and Shirley Small Special Collections Library, University of Virginia. See also Carter’s letters to John Pemberton April 15, 1730 , and August 4, 1731 .)
[6] Captain Nathaniel Leatherland commanded the William & James in June 20, 1729, and the Samuel & Jane in 1732. In 1727 he commanded the Penelope , owned by John Pemberton, when it was captured by a Spanish ship and Pemberton filed a claim for £2488. ( Carterto the freighters of the ship Rose, April 11 and June 29, 1729, ; Carter to Pemberton July 13, 1732 ; and Survey Report 02046 summarizing “House of Lords Record Office Class Main Papers 1735 May 13. Account of British ships taken at sea. 1732.” Virginia Colonial Records Project, Albert and Shirley Small Special Collections Library, University of Virginia )
[7] Out port means “a port outside a particular place; any port other than the main port of a country, etc.; spec[ically]. a British port other than London.” ( Oxford English Dictionary Online )
[8] A bill of exchange is a kind of check or promissory note without interest. It is used primarily in international trade, and is a written order by one person to pay another a specific sum on a specific date sometime in the future. If the bill of exchange is drawn on a bank, it is called a bank draft. If it is drawn on another party, it is called a trade draft. Sometimes a bill of exchange will simply be called a draft, but whereas a draft is always negotiable (transferable by endorsement), this is not necessarily true of a bill of exchange. (See “Bill of Exchange” in the online Dictionary of Financial Scam Terms: the Truth vs. the Scam. )
[9] Foster Cunliffe (d. 1767) was a merchant and prominent citizen of Liverpool who worked to expand manufacturing and the capacity of the harbor; he served a number of terms as mayor. He and Richard Gildart undertook “a major reorginization of business with Maryland and Virginia . . . beginning in the early 1720’s [they] sent numerous factors to the region.” They established stores in which retail goods were sold, purchased the produce of the region, had it ready for loading when ships arrived, and also moved into the sale of slaves. ( James A. Picton, ed. Liverpool Municipal Archives and Records. . . . [Liverpool, 1907.] pp. 27, 31, 79, 90, 96, etc. and Paul G. Clemens. “The Rise of Liverpool, 1665-1750.” Economic History Review. 24[May 1976]:211-225. )
[10] Samuel Hallows (Hallowes) was a great nephew of John Hallowes, an early landholder in Northumberland and later, Westmoreland County, who was usually identified as of “Nomini” in Westmoreland County. Samuel Hallows lived in Ashworth, County Lancaster, England. The tract in which Carter was interested may have been that of 2400 acres acquired from Hallowes in 1733 by Thomas Lee. Carter had written Hallows 1728 May 30 that he would not buy the tract of land. (“Major John Hallowes, 1615-1657” in Norris. Westmoreland County, Virginia. pp. 99-102. )
[11] Thomas Lee (1690-1750) of Westmoreland County was the son of Richard Lee II, and nephew of Edmund Jenings; he would build “Stratford,” and succeed Carter on the Council. For a good article on Thomas Lee, see “Thomas Lee of Stratford 1690-1750” by Jeanne A. Calhoun on Stratford plantation’s website. ( Burton J. Hendrick. The Lees of Virginia: Biography of a Family. [Boston: Little Brown, 1935]. pp. 48, 51, etc. )

1771 Nov 13:  From George Washington to Harrison Manley, 13 November 1771
To Harrison Manley
[Mount Vernon] Novr 13th 1771.Sir,
Inclosed you will receive a Copy of the Act Impowering your Grandfather to sell certain Intaild Lands—There being no printed copy of it, I was obliged to have recourse to the Inrolld Bills in the possession of the Clerk of the House of Burgesses, and consequently pay the Fee established by our Assembly (which is 15/) an expence I would have saved you, by copying it myself, if the private Acts of that date had been Printed; but it seems they are not.1 Colo. Carter’s Escheat of Hallowss Land is not among the records in the Secretary’s Office, for this you will be obliged to apply to the Proprietor’s office;2 and Mr Everard, the principal clerk in the Secretary’s, being constantly engaged with the Court business I could not get him to search for the Paper’s, and decree in favour of Hallows against Manley’s heir—I attempted it myself, but for want of knowledge in their Records, I could not trace the proceedings regularly on; though I found where the Suit was commenced in April 1720 by Hallows, against George Eskridge Guardian to your Father3—I shall probably go to Williamsburg again in Feby as the Assembly, it is suppos’d, will then meet; and shall find the Clerks more at leizure to search for the Papers you want, or if this will be delaying the matter longer than you would choose, I could write to Mr Everard by the Post, who I dare say would send transcrips from the records of every thing necessary to illucidate the point you want to know.
Herewith you will receive the Notes &ca agreeable to your Memm and the Treasurers rect for the Sum you sent by me, but he would not receive the Acct as the 61 Hhds of relanded Tobo should mutilated be a credit to the Country mutilated was money actually received, or ought to have been so, mutilatedlaced to the Country credit as the Warehouses belongd to mutilated—I offer’d to pay the difference, that is the £2.0.8, but he said this would answer no purpose, as the Acct must be fresh stated, at which time it would do equally well to receive the Ballance, and requested me to bring down the Acct with the alteration I have here mentioned, that he may enter a proper state of it in his Books. I am, Sir Yr Very Hble Servt
Go: Washington

ALS, DLC:GW. Harrison Manley (d. 1773) was the son of John Manley (died c.1750) and Sarah Harrison Manley (d. 1785). In Fairfax County Manley owned a small tract of land on the southwestern part of Mount Vernon Neck which GW was finally able to purchase in 1786. This tract, along with a larger one he was to acquire the same year from Penelope French, would complete GW’s acquisition of the entire neck of land originally granted in the seventeenth century to Nicholas Spencer and John Washington.
1. The October 1712 session of the assembly passed “An Act to enable William Manley, gent. to sell and dispose of certain entailed Lands and Tenements lying in the County of Westmoreland, on settling other Lands and Tenements lying in the said County, of which he is seized in fee, to the same uses” (4 Hening 36). Only the title of the act is recorded in Hening. The copy of the act attested by Richard Buckner, clerk of the House of Burgesses in 1712, is in the Virginia Session Laws, 1710–12, P.R.O., C.O. 5/1386, ff. 32–34, in Microfilm Collection of Early State Records. The act permitted William Manley, because he had “no personal Estate wherewith to support himself and his family . . . [and had contracted] Great Debts . . . and hath not wherewithall to Sattisfye the said Debts,” to sell 2,200 acres of entailed land in Westmoreland County. This land was patented by John Whiston (Whittstone) in 1667Manley was instead to settle 1,600 acres of other land in the county, which he held in fee simple under a 1650 patent of John Hollows (Hollis), to be entailed. One of the conditions under which this act could be declared void was if it ran contrary to the interests of “any other person or persons Claiming under the above named John Hallows.
2. Col. Robert (King) Carter (1663–1732) served as agent for the Fairfaxes’ Northern Neck Proprietary from 1702 to 1711 and again from 1722 to 1732.
3. Thomas Everard (1719–1781) held a number of important posts, among them clerk of the General Court. The office of the deputy secretary of the colony, Thomas Nelson (1715–1787), issued land patents. The George Eskridge who acted as guardian to Harrison Manley’s father John Manley was probably the same man—a Westmoreland County lawyer—who served as guardian to GW’s mother, Mary Ball Washington, and godfather to GW. Eskridge died in 1735.
John Hollows (Hollis), an early justice and burgess from Westmoreland County, in 1650 patented 2,400 acres on the Potomac River at the mouth of Nomini Creek. His granddaughter, Restitute Whiston (Whittstone), inherited the property, and upon her death in 1687 she left this tract of land to her oldest son, Thomas Steele, Jr., with the proviso that in case of his death before he reached his majority the land was to be divided between her two younger sons, John and William Manley. Young Steele died before he reached the age of 21, leaving no heirs, and John Manley, Restitute Whiston Manley’s only surviving son, took possession. A suit was brought by Samuel Hollows, the heir of John Hollows’s older brother, for recovery of the land, and the case was sent to England for an opinion. On 28 Mar. 1722 Sir Robert Raymond ruled that the plaintiff, Hollows, had “a good Title to these Lands devised” (Barton, Virginia Colonial Decisions, 2:1326–27). The land was bought by Thomas Lee in 1732 and became part of his Stratford Hall plantation. See also Eaton, Westmoreland Atlas, 22, 46, 52, and Lee, Lee Chronicle, 64.
