1668 Feb 8 – Mihill Gowree (Gowen) receives a 30 to 40 acre deed from Capt Barnhouse. Formerly belonging to John Turner.

James City County, Va. The deed read: “Mihill Gowree. 30 or 40 acres situated in Merchants Hundred Parish in James City County, formerly belonging to John James, decd, and by him purchased of Capt. Richard Barnhouse and lately bound to escheat [forfeiture and reversion to the crown] and by a jury for said county under hand and seal of Col. Miles Carey, 20 December 1666 and now granted to said Gowree 8 February 1668.” By the time Mihil Gowen died, apparently November 24, 1708, the property was again in escheat, according to “York County, Virginia Wills, Deeds and Orders:” “Inquisition, James City County, Virginia, 11 September 1717. It appears that Mihill Goen, late of said county of James City, dyed seized of 30 or 40 acres escheat 24 November 1708 by Christopher Jackson, surveyor of James City County is found to contain 37 acres.” “Mihil Goen” [either the estate of Mihil Goen or Mihil Gowen, Jr.] “transferred 37 acres of escheat land to Robert Hubbard February 2, 1718,” according to James City County Deed Book 9. The metes and bounds read: “Yorkhampton Parish; beginning at the corner of Mihil Goen, Hubbard & Francis Moreland, adjoining Graves Pack; down the Beach Spring Branch to the place called Horse Bridge,” according to James City County Patent Book 10, page 415. Other notes reveal: “Escheated from Mihil Goen, dec’d, by inquisition under Edmund Jennings, Esqr, Escheater 11 September, 1717.”

1686 – John Gawin‘s former servant – John Marshall:  In 1686 we find John Marshall, a former servant of Mr. John Gawin, of York county, engaged in a game with Joseph Bascom, in which the latter lost a wager of five pounds  sterling, a sum equal in purchasing power to one hundred and twenty-five dollars in American currency, a proof of how far the gambling went even among persons of very moderate means. 1 ^, In the course of the same year a game took place between Captain Soane and Richard Dearlove, of Henrico county, in which ten puts were played for a stake of fifteen hundred pounds of tobacco. Soane was successful, but as Dearlove refused to pay when called upon, a suit was entered against him in court. 18 In 1690 Allanson Clerk, of the same county, who had won four pounds sterling of Peter Rowlett in a game of put, was thrown out of court because, when the game was played, no sum was placed in the hands of a stakeholder, or regular contract to pay such a sum was drawn up, as required by law to give the betting a legal footing. 19 . . . 16 York County Records, Vol. 1675-84, orig., p. 328. “York County Records, Vol. 1684-7, p. 144, Va.

By will written August 15, 1687, he left plantations in Pamunkey Neck and Charles City County to elder sons Robert and William, with other bequests; and gave his wife Ann Jones life-right in the 400-acre plantation they then occupied, to go to their son, Orlando Jones, after her death. [See Ibid., Vol. VIII, pages 186-188 for copy of will, recorded December 13, 1688.] Rowland Jones “of Queenes Creek in the County of York … Clerck” had purchased, in September, 1684, for £200 “lawfull Mony of England”, from “John Juxon Cittizen and Salter of London and Sarah his wife late Sarah Webb of London Widdow,” a plantation of 400 acres, “together with the Brick-house and bricks and all other houses ….Scituate in or neare St Andrewes and Queenes Creek in the sd County of York.” The property had been purchased by Robert Spring of Bruton Parish, merchant, in 1676; Spring had “built a faire brick house a appurtenances” on the property between 1676 and 1681. In 1681, Sarah Webb (who married John Juxon, an noted, obtained title to the property from Robert Spring for debts due her husband, Thomas Webb “late Merchant & Citizen & Clothworker of London who dyed in Virginia.” [Ibid., Vol. VI (1677-1684) pp. 304-305, (suit of 1680); pp. 318-324 (chain of title to property from 1642 to Spring’s purchase in April 1676, and deed from Robert and Ann Spring, of June 20, 1681, to “Sarah Webb of London Widdow.”)] The property passed, as devised to Rowland Jones’ wife Ann, and to their son Orland, who was occupying the plantation at the time of his death in 1719.

YORK COUNTY, VIRGINIA

Ann Gowen Easley here

William Gowen, Jr. to be inserted at end of the section of Ann Gowen Easley.

William Gowen, Jr, son of William Gowen and Sarah Gowen, was born about 1739 in Stafford County, Virginia. He was brought to Brunswick County, Virginia by his parents about 1743. By 1750 they were living in Granville County, North Carolina. His father paid tax on “son William” there in the 1758 tax list of James Yancey.”

William Gowen, Jr. accompanied his family in a move to South Carolina about 1774.

One hundred acres of land was “admeasured and laid out unto William Gowen, Junior” May 4, 1773 in Craven County, South Carolina, probably in compensation for North Carolina militia duty. Craven County at that time encompassed land that later became District 96 when it was organized. De­scription of the land grant is contained in South Carolina Archives, Co­lonial Plats, Volume 16, page 173. The sur­veyor’s record reads:

South Carolina, Craven County

Pursuant to a Precept from under the hand and seal of John Bremar, Esquire, Deputy Surveyor General dated October February second day AD 1773, I have admea­sured and laid out unto William Gowen, Junior, a planta­tion or tract of land contain­ing one hundred acres situate, lying and being on the South fork of Pacolet river bound on all sides by vacant land and hath such form and shape as the above plat repre­sents. Certified under my hand this 4th day of May AD 1773.

Andrew Thompson, Deputy Surveyor”

His land grant from King George III is recorded in South Car­olina Archives, Royal Grants, Volume 34, page 286. The doc­ument reads:

“South Carolina: George the Third by the Grace of God, of Great-Britain, France and Ireland, King, De­fender of the Faith and so forth, To all to whom these presents shall come, Greeting: Know ye, that we of our spe­cial Grace, certain Knowledge and mere Motion, have given and granted, and by these Presents for our heirs and suc­cessors, Do Give and Grant unto William Gowan, his heirs and assigns, a plantation or tract of land containing one hundred acres situ­ate on the South fork of Pacolet River bounded all sides by vacant land, and hath such shape, form and marks, as appear by a plat thereof, here­unto an­nexed:

Together with all woods, under-woods, timber and tim­ber-trees, lakes, ponds, fishings, waters, water-courses, profits, commodities, appurtenances and hered­itaments whatsoever, there unto belonging or in anywise apper­taining: Together with privilege of hunting, hawking and fowling in and upon the same, and all mines and minerals whatsoever; saving and reserving nevertheless, to us, our heirs and suc­cessors, all white pine-trees, if any there should be found grow­ing thereon; and also saving and reserv­ing, nevertheless, to us, our heirs and successors, one tenth-part of mines of gold and silver only: TO HAVE AND TO HOLD, the said tract of one hun­dred acres of land and all singular other the premises hereby granted unto the said William Gowan, his heirs and assigns for ever, in free and common foccage. The said William Gowan, his heirs and as­signs yielding and paying therefor, unto us, our heirs and successors, or to our Receiver-General for the time being, or to his Deputy or Deputies for the time being, yearly, that is to say, on the twenty-fifth day of March, in every year at the rate of three shillings sterling, or four shillings proclamation money, for every hundred acres, and so in proportion, according to the number of acres, contained therein the same to commence at the ex­piration of two years from the date hereof. Pro­vided always, and this present Grant is upon condi­tion, nevertheless that the said William Gowan, his heirs and assigns, shall and do yearly, and every year, after the date of these presents, clear and cul­tivate at the rate of three acres for every hundred acres of land, and so in proportion, according to the number of acres herein contained; And also shall and do enter a minute or docket of these our letters-patent in the office of our Auditor General for the time being, in our said Province, within six months from the date hereof; And upon condition, that if the said rent, hereby re­served shall happen to be in arrear and unpaid for the space of three years, from the time it shall become due, and no distress can be found on the said lands, tene­ments, and heredita­ments hereby granted; if the said William Gowan, his heirs or assigns shall neglect to clear and culti­vate yearly and every year, at the rate of three acres for every hundred acres of land, and so in propor­tion, according to the number of acres herein con­tained, or if a minute or docket of these our Letters-patent, shall not be entered in the Office of our Auditor-General for the time being, in said Province, within six months from the date hereof, that then and in any of these cases, this present Grant shall cease, determine and be utterly void, and the said lands, tenements and hered­itaments hereby granted, and every part and parcel thereof, shall revert to us, our heirs and successors as fully and absolutely, as if the same had never been granted.

Given under the Great Seal of our said Province.

Witness The Honorable William Bull, Esquire, Lieu­tenant Governor and Commander in chief in and over our said Province of South-Carolina, this Eighth Day of December, Anno Dom. 1774 in the Fifteenth Year of our Reign.

L. M. S.
William Bull

Signed by his Honor the Lieut. William Bull, Governor of Council and hath thereunto a Plat thereof annexed, representing the same, certified by John Bre­mar, Deputy Surveyor General. 4th May 1773.
Thomas Winstanley, GCC”

The land granted to William Gowen was located about 10 miles from Gowensville, South Carolina where his brother, John “Buck” Gowen is believed to have received a royal grant and settled.

It is believed that William Gowen did not move to South Car­olina upon receipt of the land grant, but merely com­muted to clear and cultivate three acres of land as required by the grant. He was married about this time, wife’s name unknown.

“William Going of Granville County, North Carolina,” re­ceived a deed from Walter Ownbey of Bute County, North Carolina November 3, 1778, according to Granville County Deed Book M, page 91.

“William Goyen” served in the South Carolina militia in 1782, according to South Carolina Archives, File AA20l8, page 1xB. The file contains a payroll receipt reading:

“Mr. William Goyen. his account of 50 days duty in the Militia in 1782. amount­ing to Three Pounds, Eleven Shillings and Five Pence. The time of when the duty was perrmed is not fixed. Exd. Amc.
to lie over See above E.D.”

The notation “going” is written upside down on the bottom of the receipt, perhaps by a clerk to clarify the pronuncia­tion of “Goyen.”

Frank Maxwell Gowen wrote September 26, 1981 that William Gowen, Jr. received three grants of land from the State of South Carolina after the Revolutionary War. On August 24, 1784 re­ceived 320 acres on the Middle Tyger River. On August 30, 1784 he received 116 acres on the south fork of the Pacolet River. On March 18, 1793 he re­ceived 254 acres located on the Middle Tyger River. All of these grants were in Greenville County. It was requested that the deeds be delivered to John “Buck” Gowen. Research is needed to determine that these grants were not made to his father, William Gowen, Sr.

Apparently William Gowen, Jr. did not remain long in South Carolina, but returned to North Carolina. He was not men­tioned in his father’s will written March 10, 1785, probably be­cause he did not remain near him in the Apex Cession.

There were other individuals by the name of William Gowen in Granville County at that time. Care is needed to delineate be­tween them so that the activities of one is not ascribed to an­other.

“William Gowing” was one of the witnesses to the bond of Spencer Carroll April 20, 1786. According to Granville County Will Book 1, page 480, “Spencer Carroll says he, un­fortunately, yesterday did bite off the lower end of the right ear of John Rogers for which I give my obligation to him.”

“William Gowing,” appeared as the head of a household in the 1786 state census of Granville County, page 2, located in the Oxford District. The family was composed of:

“Gowing, William white male, 21-60
white female
white male, under 21 or over 60
white male, under 21 or over 60
white male, under 21 or over 60
white male, under 21 or over 60
white female”

Of William Gowen, Jr. nothing more is known.

Insert James Gowen, Beaufort District here .u

Insert at the end of James Gowen’s descendants, Section .018 a

William Gowen, son of [William3, Thomas2, Mihil1]. was born in Stafford County about 1712 or 1720? He is regarded as possibly the William Gowen who removed to Davidson County, North Carolina [later Tennessee] in the winter of 1779.

He may have influenced his brother, Ambrose Gowen to join him in Davidson County. On April 5, 1786 “Ambrose Goins” appeared on a jury panel in Davidson County, North Carolina [later Tennessee] in which Peter Barnett sued John Rice.

Alexander Gowen, [William3, Thomas2, Mihil1] son of William Gowen and Catherine Gowen, was born about 1715 in Stafford County. Paul Heinegg in “Free African Americans of North Carolina and Virginia” suggested that he was named for Maj. Robert Alexander, a neighbor. “My well beloved son, Elixander Going” received under the terms of his mother’s will, “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” and one-half of his mother’s tobacco crop.

Alexander Gowen sold 56 acres he inherited from his mother for £24 to Bond Veale August 18, 1747, according to Fairfax Deed Book B, page 254. The deed mentioned a division line specified in a deed which John Gowen executed to Thomas Ford.

Bond Veale and Elizabeth his wife sold to James Ingoe Dozer of Lunenburg Parish, Richmond County, Virginia for £26 54 acres April 16, 1750, according to Fairfax County Deed Book C, page 51. Dozer leased the land September 19, 1758 to James Edwards. William Ellzey sold the 56 acres “sold to him by Dozer to Thomas Sangster, blacksmith” January 19, 1777, according to Fairfax County Deed Book M, pge 252.

“Alexander Going” appeared in Stafford County on Green’s list of tithables in the year 1749, together with “James Going.” Alexander Going removed to North Carolina about 1750. He witnessed a deed in September 1753, accord­ing to Orange County, North Carolina deed records.
…………
This is from Jack Harold Goins [may be incorrect]

Alexander Going/Gowen, a brother to John Going/Gowen, Sr. was all over the place. In 1762, “Alaxander Going vs. William Williams” was dismissed when the plaintiff failed to appear, according to Halifax County Court of Pleas Minute Book 3, page 405. In the 1764 case of “Alixander Going vs. John Martin,” Martin was ordered to “pay note of £2, 10 shillings, plus interest,” according to Minute Book 4, page 314.

In the July 1767 term, Thomas Spragins filed suit against “Alexander Gowing,” claiming debt on an “attachment against the said defendant’s estate.” The clerk recorded that “for reasons appearing it is ordered that this suit be dismissed,” according to Minute Book 5, page 474. In the same year, the case of “Alexander Going vs. Owen Brady” was dismissed. The clerk noted, “Plaintiff not residing in this Colony and failing to give security for cost as the law directs,” according to Minute Book 5, page 459.

In 1760 he received a patent for 600 acres in St. Matthews Parish of Orange County “on both sides of Hogans Creek,” ac­cording to Orange County Deed Book 14, page 405. Alexander Going was summoned as a grandjuror February 17, 1761, ac­cording to Orange County Court minutes.

Alexander Going filed suit against Richard Finch in 1763 in Orange County, according to Orange County Court Minute Book 8.

Alexander Going filed suit against James Leslye in the court term of November 1763, according to Orange County Court minutes.

The case of “Alexander Going vs. William Going” [regarded as his nephew] came before the Orange County Court in 1764, according to Orange County Court Minute Book 8.

Alexander Going received a deed May 14, 1765 from William Gladen to 311.5 acres, according to Orange County deed records.

Alexander Gowen apparently returned to Fairfax County. Alexander Gowen received Grant No. 418 June 11, 1768 for 461 acres “lying on branches of the Pohick, adjacent to Carter and Ellzey,” according to “Grants by the Proprietors of the Northern Neck of Virginia, 1694-1742.” This appears to be part of the 544-acre patent to Thomasin Ellzey which was recorded one month earlier. The land later lay in Fairfax County, according to Fairfax County Deed Book O, page 155, as published in “Patents and Northern Neck Grants of Fair­fax County, Virginia.” by Beth Mitchell. The grant read:

“The Right Honorable Thomas Lord Fairfax, Baron of Cameron in that part of Great Britain called Scotland, Proprietor of the Northern Neck of Virginia; To all to whom this present writing . . . do give, grant and confirm unto Alexander Gowen of North Carolina . . . 461 acres on the branches of the Pohick in Fairfax County . . . dated 11th day of June, 1768.

Children born to Alexander Gowen are believed to include:

Ursula Gowen born about 1745

Ursula Gowen, regarded as a daughter of Alexander Gowen, was born about 1745, probably in Stafford County. “Ursely Gowing” was married about 1768 to Jonathan Tyra, according to Dorothy Ford Wulfeck in “Marriages of Some Virginia Residents,” page 133.

Susannah Gowen, [William3, Thomas2, Mihil1] daughter of William W. Gowen and Catherine Gowen, was born about 1718 in Stafford County. Under the terms of her mother’s will written May 21, 1739, she received “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. and half of my crop of tob: which is now in my house.”

James Gowen, [Thomas2, Mihil1] on of Thomas Gowen, was born about 1684, probably in James City County about 1684. He was brought to Westmoreland County about 1695.

“James Gowing, William 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.

“James, William, Thomas and John Goins” jointly received a land grant of 1,215 acres in Stafford County “located on Four-Mile Creek adjoining Maj. Robert Alexander” about 1710. On August 3, 1719, the land was granted to Evan Thomas and John Todd, “both of Stafford County,” according to “Grants by the Proprietors of the Northern Neck of Virginia.”

On March 4, 1730 “James Going” and Simon Pearson received 652 acres “on Four Mile Run near Brandymore, adjacent to chestnut lands of Thomas Pearson, deceased.”according to “Patents and Northern Neck Grants of Fairfax County, Virginia” by Beth Mitchell.

On the same date James Gowen sold [probably to Simon Pearson] his interest in “652 acres on Four Mile Run, adjoining Thomas Pearson,” according to Deed Book C, page 118.

“James Going and Alexander Going” appeared together in Green’s list of tithables in 1749. “James Going” voted there in 1755.

James Gowen is regarded by Paul Heinegg as the father of:

Daniel Gowen born about 1730
Jacob Gowen born about 1735
Luke Gowen born about 1739
Michael Gowen born about 1740
George Gowen born about 1748

Daniel Gowen, regarded as a son of James Gowen, was born about 1730 in Stafford County. “Daniel Gowing” was enlisted September 10, 1755 in Stafford County by Ens. Weedon in the company commanded by Capt. Thomas Cocke for service in the French & Indian War. He could not be labeled as a Melungeon or a mulatto because he was described as “planter, born in Vir­ginia, age 27, 5’4″, light colored hair, long thin visage.”

In December 1756 he appeared on the payroll of Capt. Peter Hogg’s company. In September 1757 he was recorded in the 7th Company in the Virginia Regiment commanded by Capt. Joshua Lewis. On this report he was described as “a hatter, born in Virginia, fair complexion, brown hair.”

“Daniel Gowin” was on the payroll of Capt. Thomas Cocke’s militia company during the French and Indian War in March 1756. In July 1757, he was a member of the Seventh Company of the Virginia Regiment commanded by Capt. Joshua Lewis. He continued in that command in October 1757.

The French & Indian War began in 1754 and was terminated in 1763 by the Treaty of Paris signed February 10. 1843. The French with their Indian allies were singularly successful in the early years of the war. The Virginia troops, 600 strong, led by Lt. Col. George Washington guided 800 British regulars under the command of Gen. Edward Braddock to the Ohio River Valley. They were soundly defeated at Ft. Duquesne.

“Daniel Gowen” was indexed in “Virginia Wills and Adminis­trations, 1632-1800” by Torrence. His estate was probated in 1796. An inventory of his estate is on file in the Fairfax County Courthouse.

Jacob Gowen, regarded as the son of James Gowen, was born about 1735 in Stafford County.

On July 3, 1754, in the wilderness of the Allegheny Mountains, Virginia troops commanded by Col. George Washington, a 22-year-old, were defeated at Ft. Necessity. This battle at the “Great Meadows” was the opening hostility of the French & Indian War. It was the struggle between Great Britain and France for the control of North America

On July 9, 1754 “Pvt. Jacob Gowin” was in the company commanded by Capt. Robert Stobo, “on roster made at Wills Creek.” “Pvt. Jacob Gowin” reappeared on the payroll record of Stobo’s company July 29, 1754 at Alexandria, Virginia.

On that date he was transferred to the militia company of Capt. Andrew Lewis. He was included “in the detachment sent to Augusta County,” on the western frontier under the command of Capt. Lewis, according to “Virginia’s Colonial Soldiers” by Lloyd DeWitt Bockstruck.

Pvt. Jacob Gowen was paid £2:0:8 for this service which began July 29, 1754 and ended September 29, 1754. In September 1757 Jacob Gowen continued in the same company, com­manded by Maj. Andrew Lewis, according to “Virginia Colo­nial Militia, 1561-1776” edited by William Armstrong Crozier..

Later “Pvt. Jacob Going” appeared in the company commanded by Capt. Robert Stobo. He appeared on a list of soldiers in Stobo’s company “who have received His Excellency’s Bounty Money.” He was listed as a deserter October 1, 1757, according to “Colonial Soldiers of the South.”

Paul Heinegg in “Free African Americans of North Carolina and Virginia” suggests that he fled to Rowan County, North Carolina. It is believed that Jacob Going was located in Surry County in 1770 when it was created from Rowan County. He suggests that Jacob Going was married there about 1778, wife’s name Jerusha. Stokes County was created from Surry County in 1789. It is suggested that Jacob Going and Jerusha Going were estranged about 1790.

Jacob Going was married to Nancy Smith, “who is upwards of 22 years,” January 18, 1792 in adjoining Patrick County, Vir­ginia, according to “Patrick County, Virginia Marriages, 1791-1850.” John Cannon was surety. John Clark witnessed the cer­emony. Children born to Jacob Go­ing and Nancy Smith Going are unknown.

Jacob Going was enumerated as the head of a household in the 1800 census of Stokes County, page 587. The only “free col­ored” family enumerated in the 1820 census of Stokes County, page 23, was headed by Gerusha Going. regarded as the former wife of Jacob Going. Gerusha Going, “free colored,” born about 1760, was recorded as the head of household of “three free colored” in the 1820 census of Stokes County, page 26, ac­cording to “Index to the 1820 census of North Carolina.”

On April 21, 1821 Gerusha Going obtained a “Certificate of Freedom” in adjoining Patrick County, Virginia. The certifi­cate read, “Jarusha Going, dark, aged about 62; Polly Going, light complexion, age 28; son, Andrew Going, aged 9, all re­siding on Little Dan River.”

Jerusha Going recorded her certificate about 20 years later in Highland County, Ohio, according to Highland County “Register of Black, Mulatto and Poor Persons.” page 8.

According to Paul Heinegg, children born to Jerusha Going in­cluded:

Benjamin Going born about 1780
Polly Going born about 1793

Benjamin Going, regarded as a son of Jacob Going and Jerusha Going, was born about 1780 in Stokes County. He appeared there in 1820 as the head of a “free colored” household of six, page, page 341.

Polly Going, regarded as a daughter of Jerusha. Going, was born about 1793, probably in Stokes County. She was living with her mother and a boy, Andrew Goings on April 12, 1821 in Patrick County, Virginia when they were issued a ‘Certificate of Freedom” by the Patrick County Clerk. They produced the certificate in Highland County, Ohio about 20 years later.

Children born to Polly Going are believed to include:

Andrew Going born about 1812

“Jason Going” paid a tax on “1 poll” in Loudoun County, ac­cording to “Virginia Taxpayers, 1782-1787.”

Luke Gowen, regarded as the son of James Gowen, was born about 1739 in Stafford County. “Luke Going” was recorded as paying tax on “2 polls” in Loudon County, according to “Virginia Taxpayers, 1782-1787.”

Michael Gowen, regarded as the son of James Gowen, was born about 1740 in Stafford County. “Michael Going” was listed as the head of a household of 12 whites” in the 1785 census of Shenandoah County, page 105. He paid tax on “1 dwelling, 1 outbuilding.”

George Gowen, regarded as the son of James Gowen, was born about 1748 in Stafford County. “George Going, free colored” was enumerated as the head of a household of “8 free colored” in the 1810 census of Fairfax County, page 257, according to “Index to 1810 Vir­ginia Census” by Madeline W. Crickard.

John Gowen, [Thomas2, Mihil1] on of Thomas Gowen, was born about 1689, probably in James City County.

James Gowen, [Mihil1] son of Mihil Gowen, was born about 1663, probably in James City County. Of this individual nothing more is known.
