Notes for William Blankenship: Rev. Soldier, DAR #182530

 

William Blankenship appeared on a list of debtors record which can be found on FTM CD-ROM #206

 

William Blankenship fully documented in the Maryland Prerogative Court records in the year 1714. This is no doubt the son of Ralph and Martha who was then 125 miles north of his home inHenrico Co., VA. He was in Ann Arundel County were Annapolis islocated on the Chesapeake. It is reasonable to assume that William was an adult at this time which means he was at least 21 years of age. Subtract 21

 

from 1714 and we get 1693 as a possible birth date for him. He has always been recorded in genealogy records as born in 1695 and that simply cannot be - because in 1714 he would only have been 19. Why was he was in Maryland? Was it because he was en route to Marion, Massachusetts to meet with English friends he or his family formerly knew in England, or had perhaps known at some previous

 

time in Virginia. Lets temporarily give a birth date to William Blankenship, son of Ralph and Martha, as 1691.

Notes for Hezekiah Blankenship:

 

Apparently the Blankenships were a rowdy frontier clan as indicated by the following exerpt from early Franklin Co., Va court records in the Franklin County Bicentennial Commision's "History of Franklin County"..."The wording in assault cases often was more dramatic than the actual event. In November 1786 for example, Samuel Dillion charged that Barnett, Elijah, Elisha, Hezekiah, Isham(jr.), Isham(Sr.), John and William Blankenship, with 'swords, Clubs, Fists upon the said plaintiff...an assault did make and him did beat wound and ill treat so that of his life it was greatly despaired.' Either Dillion exaggerated or the Blankenships were remarkably inept; eventually his suit-for 500 lbs in damages- was dismissed.
