Notes for William Churchill:

 

A Conjecture as to the Ancestry of American Churchills-1904

 

"Referring to William Churchill, No. 13, it is found that he made his will March 12, 1599, making his youngest son, John, his sole executor, though, of course, the estate and title passed to the eldest son (Roger). John Churchill, the youngest son, born, it is thought, between 1540 and 1550, married Elenor Meller, daughter of John Meller, of Kyme, in Dorsetshire, and settled at Muston in the same county, and was there a gentleman of respectable estate and position. They had nine sons and four daughters, viz.: George, Richard, John (died soon), John, Robert, Maximilian, Thomas, Jasper, Matthew, Edith, Sarah, Jane, and a daughter who died unnamed. The conjecture is that one of these nine sons was the father or grandfather of Joseph Churchill of London, who, in 1628, was a merchant in Fleet Lane, and was supplying Governor Endicott of Massachusetts Bay Colony with arms and other articles of outfit.

 

It is possible that this Joseph was the father of John of Plymouth, or Josiah of Connecticut, perhaps of both. Both these emigrant settlers named their oldest son Joseph, according to the old custom. There is no evidence of any relationship of Joseph of London to John of Muston, or of any connection between the emigrant settlers and the said Joseph, or of any kinship between the said settlers, one with the other."

Notes for John Churchill:

 

John Churchill, the emigrant ancestor of the Plymouth branch of the family in America, was born in England and first appeared at Plymouth in 1643, and died there January 1, 1682/3.

 

"It is a matter of regret that up to completion of this volume (1904) nothing has been found tp give even a clue to the birthplace, parentage, previous residence, or occupation of this emigrant ancestor of such large posterity. He was not on the tax-lists of Plymouth in 1632, but appears in 1643 in the list of male inhabitants between 16 and 60 years old, who are "able to bear arms." Diligent research through many ways and for many years has failed to add any authentic information to the bare fact that he was at Plymouth in 1643."

 

We do, however, know that he married Hannah Pontus, December 18, 1644; bought a farm of Richard Higgins, Aug. 18, 1645; was propounded freeman, June 4, 1650, and admitted June 5, 1651; bought, Oct. 20, 1652, of Nathaniel Masterson, then of Manchester, in Massachusetts, ten acres of upland lying at Wellingsley, in the township of Plymouth. In this deed Mr. Churchill is called "Planter."

8.               i. JOHN4 CHURCHHILL was born in 1610 in Muston, Devon, England. He died on 01 Jan 1663 in Plymouth, Plymouth Co, MA. He married Hannah Pontus on 18 Dec 1644 in Plymouth, Plymouth Co, MA. She was born in 1623. She died in 1690.

Notes for John Churchhill:

 

This famous name, arguably 'The' most famous name in British history, is of pre Anglo - Saxon origin. It is locational and derives from any one of the several places called 'Churchill' in Somerset, Oxfordshire and Worcestershire. These villages are variously recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 as 'Cercelle', 'Circehill' and 'Cercehalle', and all share the same derivation and meaning. This is from the Olde English pre 7th Century 'cyrice' meaning church plus 'hyll', - the church on the hill. However in at least one case the translation is known to be quite different. 'Churchill' in Devon is recorded in 1201 as 'Curcheswille', and this translates as 'the spring on the hill' from the Olde British (pre-Roman) 'cruc', meaning hill, and 'wiella', a spring. Early examples of the name recordings include Matilda de Chirchull in the 1275 Subsidy Rolls of Worcester, and William atte Churchull of Somerset in the year 1333. There has hardly been a time since the 16th century when the name of Churchill, has not been prominent in the nations affairs. The famous statesman and war leader, Sir Winston Spencer Churchill (1875 - 1965) was born at Blenheim Palace. This was built by the nation for his forbearer John Churchill (1650 - 1722), first Duke of Marlborough, and hero of the 18th Century wars against France. The first coat of arms granted to the family was confirmed in 1620, but believed to originate in the reign of King Henry 111 (1216 - 1272). This has the blazon of a black field, charged with a silver lion rampant, debruised with a red bendlet. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of John de Chirchehul, which was dated 1221, a witness in the Warwickshire Assize Court, during the reign of King Henry 111, known as "The Frenchman", 1216 - 1272. Surnames became necessary when governments introduced personal taxation. In England this was known as Poll Tax. Throughout the centuries, surnames in every country have continued to "develop" often leading to astonishing variants of the original spelling.

 

JOHN III CHURCHILL

 

John III Churchill was born: 1613, in Dorset County, England, in a town called Muston. He Married: Hannah Pontus, 18 Dec 1644, in Plymouth, Massachusetts. He died: 01 Jan 1662.

 

Our John III Churchill of Plymouth, may have Emigrated to the New World to escape a Civil War breaking out in England in 1642. It is also possible, he was escaping poverty in his home town of Dorchester, where farmland was scarce. He was not deeply religious like the Pilgrims. We do know that he was in Plymouth, by 1643, more than 20 years after the first Mayflower, ready to marry and be a farmer.

 

Hannah Pontus was 30, in 1644, when she married John Churchill. She was related to Governor Bradford, so John was politically well-connected by marrying Hannah. Hannah provided John with six children.

 

John bought Richard Higgins’ farm 18 Aug 1645, probably with help from Governor Bradford. The Deed written out by Mr. Higgins says that the buyer was "John Churchwell."

 

(January 1653/4, Phillip Delano of Duxburow and Mary his wife sold to John Churchill and Bennaiah Pratt the house and land near Plymouth "sometimes the house and land of William Pontus and James Glasse both deceased" [MD 5:92, citing PCLR 2:1:93]. On 17 January 1653, Phillip Delano of Duxburrow and Mary his wife sold to John Churchill of Plymouth a parcel of meadow sometimes the meadow of William Pontus and James Glasse deceased, being about an acre and a half [MD 5:92-93, citing PCLR 2:1:93].)PMC

 

John Churchill (or Churchwell) was propounded a Freeman 04 Jun 1650, and "admitted" to vote on 05 Jun 1651. He was doing well financially, because a man who was poor would not have been allowed to vote in those days.

 

John bought 10 acres of upland on 20 Oct 1652, after his father-in-law died, using money his wife Hannah had inherited from her father.

 

The occupation of John Churchill was listed as that of a "Planter." His home was located in Plymouth at a place known locally as "Hobbs Hole." He died in 1662, leaving behind six young children, the oldest being only 16.

 

Memorandum the 18th of August 1645. That Richard Higgins doth acknowledge, that for and in consideration of the sum of twelve pounds, to be payd in manner and forme following by John Churchwell. That is to say, five pounds the first of March next, forty shillings that tyme twelve months, and fourty shillings the first of March 1647, and the remayning three pounds the first of march in the year of our Lord 1648, all which payments are to be made in corne or cattell or other current payment of the country as they will then passe from man to man at the said time of payment.__Hath freely and absolutely bargained and sold unto the said John Churchwell, all that said dwelling-house, out-houses and buildings, with the garden and orchard situate neere Browne's Rock, together with the uplands thereunto adjoining, and all his lands at Woeberry together with his meadow at South Ponds and at Colebrook meddowes towards Agawam, and all the fencing in and about any part of the premises, and all his Right title and Interest of and into the said premises with their appurtances and every part and parcell thereof.__To have and to hold, etc., etc. . . .

October 29, 1649

 

Received by me Richard Higgins full satisfaction from John Churchwell wpon all accounts from the beginning to the present.

 

Richard Higgins

 

In Mr. Churchill's will, given below, we note he had acquired , by grant or purchase, quite a large land property. At his death, his eldest son Joseph, was about 16 years old. The widow, with her six children, lived, evidently, in the "new house" which he mentions as designed for Joseph, after the mother's death, while if Joseph marries before that event he is to have "the olde dwelling-house." The widow was left the use of his whole property during her life.

 

From Ancient Landmarks of Plymouth

 

"John Churchill, the progenitor of the Churchill family, who appeared in Plymouth in 1643, settled at Hobshole. His land was on the easterly side of the street, and extended from the southerly line of the field opposite to 'Jabez Corner' to a point thirty feet distant from the southerly line of the estate of Branch Blackmer. Here he lived and died, but no tradition exists concerning the precise spot on which his house was situated. There are some indications, however, in the records, that the old house owned by ThomasB. Sears and Amos Leshure, which was built by Elkanah Churchill, the grandson of John, occupies the site of the ancient dwelling. After the death of Mr. Churchill, the estate fell into the hands of his son Eleazer."

 

The Will of John Churchill

 

"The Will noncupative of John Churchill Senr., late deceased, exhibited before the Court held at Plymouth the 3d of march 1662 attested upon oath as followeth.

Notes for Hannah Pontus:

 

Hannah Pontus, John’s wife, was born in about 1614, in Leyden, Holland. Her father was William Pontus of Dover, England. Her mother was Wybra Hanson Pontus. Both were Pilgrims, or political dissidents, who complained about the Church of England. They had to stay away from England so they wouldn’t be hanged for their radical political views.

 

[NOTE: There is a family tree diagram about the Churchills of Nova Scotia, which says that Hannah Churchill died in 1690 at age 67. I suspect this is a mistake; I think she was 76 when she died, not 67.]

 

Hannah became a Widow when John Churchill died in 1662. She remarried. Her second husband was Giles Rickard, whom she married on June 25, 1669, as his third wife. Giles died in 1684.

 

Hannah Pontus Churchill Rickard died 22 Dec 1690, (or December 20), at Hobbs Hole, in Plymouth.

 

CHURCHILL, JOHN-John Churchill married on 18 December 1644 Hannah Pontus (PCR 2:79), daughter of William Pontus (MD 11:93). On 18 August 1645 he bought land from Richard Higgins (PCR 12-.111). On 1 May 1649 the court allowed John Churchill to dispose of the house and land of George Clarke, deceased, for the use of Clarke's daughter, Abigail Clarke (PCR 2:138). On 5 June 1651 he became a freeman (PCR 2:167), On 3 May 1664 widow Hannah Churchill was awarded one-half of the land of her deceased father, William Pontus (PCR 4:58). John Churchill died 1 January 1662/63 (PCR 8:23). He made a nuncupative will, which was exhibited to the court on 3 March 1662/63, and Abigail Clarke, age about twenty, deposed that on 24 December 1662, her kinsman John Churchill willed that his sons Joseph and Eleazer should have all his lands except fifty acres which he would give to his son John, and some land at Punckateesett that he would give his son William. His wife would have a lifetime interest in his house and lands, and he named a Hannah (see PCR 8:7 for birth of his daughter Hannah on 12 November 1649). He also mentioned unnamed children, who might include, but not necessarily, some of the above (MD 18:40). PCR 8:16 also shows that he had a daughter Mary born I August 1654. On 25 June 1669 his widow Hannah Churchill married Gyles Rickard, Sr. (PCR 8:32). The descendants are quite numerous, and a family history is Gardner A. Churchill and Nathaniel W. Churchill, Churchill Family in America (1904), which is not well documented.

Notes for Benjamin Harrison Jr:

 

THE HARRISON FAMILY OF VIRGINIA:

 

The Harrison Family is a Prominent Political Family in United States History. Most famously, The Harrison Family produced numerous Governors Of Virginia (serving during both The Colonial Era, and after Independence), as well as, Two United States Presidents: WILLIAM HENRY HARRISON AND BENJAMIN HARRISON.

 

The Family has a longer Recorded Heritage in Politics, however. Their Earliest Notable Ancestor is the Thirteenth Century, BARON ROBERT II de HOLLAND, also an Ancestor to JAMES MADISON, THOMAS JEFFERSON, GEORGE WASHINGTON, ULYSSES S. GRANT, AND WINSTON CHURCHILL.

 

Among the First Families of Virginia, they came to The Colony of Virginia in 1630, when BENJAMIN HARRISON (The first of many, to bear that name), left England for The Americas.

 

His Son, BENJAMIN II HARRISON, Fathered BENJAMIN III HARRISON, who Fathered COLONEL BENJAMIN IV HARRISON, in 1693. His Son is known in modern times as BENJAMIN V HARRISON a Signer of The Declaration of Independence and a Governor of Virginia. For the next Two Centuries the Harrisons would play some role in American Political History.

 

When John Trumbull was painting his 'Declaration of Independence', he had no portrait of BENJAMIN V HARRISON, to work with. BENJAMIN VI HARRISON, was said to have resembled his Father, so he was painted instead. BENJAMIN VI HARRISON, was Brother to GENERAL AND PRESIDENT WILLIAM HENRY HARRISON, who was Father of JOHN SCOTT HARRISON, an Ohio Congressman. JOHN SCOTT HARRISON was Father of PRESIDENT BENJAMIN HARRISON, and is the only person to be both, the Son and the Father of a United States President. PRESIDENT BENJAMIN HARRISON, was named after BENJAMIN V HARRISON, and JOHN SCOTT HARRISON'S Brother, DOCTOR BENJAMIN VII HARRISON, making PRESIDENT BENJAMIN HARRISON, the EIGHT BENJAMIN HARRISON. Since the other Seven are less Historically Prominent, he is usually known simply as BENJAMIN HARRISON, even though BENJAMIN VIII HARRISON, is technically correct.

 

BY MARRIAGE they are related to: THE LEE FAMILY, THE WASHINGTON FAMILY, AND THE RANDOLPH FAMILY.

Notes for Hayden Harrison Edwards:

 

Notes for HADEN(HAYDEN) EDWARDS: [1]

The birth of Hayden Edwards is recorded in the St. Paul's parish register of Stafford County, Va. As

 

15  March 1715/16 and his baptismal as 15 April 1716 by the Rev. David Stuart, minister of that parish. St. Paul's church is yet standing; due to an alteration in the county lines in 1777 this parish became a part of lower King George County and adjoins Westmoreland County so even though Hayden's birth is recorded in this parish there is confusion as to where he was actually born.

 

Hayden and his wife and family moved to Bourbon County, Kentucky from Virginia to claim the vast amounts of land issued by patent from Virginia.

 

From George Harrison Sanford King the following: "about the year 1785 Haden Edwards and family moved to Bourbon County, Kentucky, and settled about four miles from Paris, where he took up a large amount of land. The records of Cooper's Run Baptist church (reference: register, vol. 22, pages 258-259) show Haden Edwards to have been a member of that church as well as his wife Penelope Edwards, who was admitted by letter in 1796 from Chopowamsie, Va. This is a section of Virginia lying in Stafford and Prince William Counties; Chopawasmie Creek dividing the two counties on the south.

 

Haden Edwards died in Bourbon County, Kentucky, at the age of 87 years, July 13, 1803 and was buried on his farm near Paris, Ky. "

 

Hayden Edwards was a merchant and lawyer, and he served several times in the Virginia legislature and filled many official positions with ability.

 

After Hayden's death Penelope moved to Logan County, Ky.

Letter from Mrs. Penelope E. Crouch. St. Augustine, Texas, Dec. 15, 1884

 

"Dear Cousin,

 

Yours of the 8th inst, has been received, together with the engraving of your father, both of which are greatly appreciated. I will now write you a history of our branch of the Edwards family, as far as I know. I descended from Hayden Edwards, who married a Miss Penelope Sanford, who emigrated from England to America before the Revolutionary War, with a brother and some other young men, Mrs. Penelope Edwards being the only lady on board of the vessel. The brother settled in one of the northern states. Hayden and Penelope settled in Virginia."

 

Family tradition says that Penelope's wedding gown has been passed down to girls in the family with the name of Penelope and in 1997 seems to be in San Augustine, Texas. There are those who feel this story has been greatly romanticized.

 

" The wedding dress of Penelope Sanford Edwards is still in existence, and in the possession of her descendants, Mrs. Penelope Edwards Crouch of San Antonio, Texas, and a near relative of hers who also resides in Texas. Mrs. Charles A. Browne of Washington, D.C. A descendant of Penelope Sanford Edwards, through her son, Senator John Edwards of Kentucky, called on Mrs. Crouch in the autumn of 1931 and Mrs. Crouch told her that the dress was not new when Penelope Sanford was married in it, now about 200 years ago, but was inherited by her. She too, stated that Penelope Sanford was of blood relation to her husband, Haden Edwards. In regard to the dress Mrs. Crouch wrote some years ago in the "Houston Texas Post": " I never saw any goods like the old dress. It still has great stiffness. It is woven so that the right side is a solid white, with tiny rosebuds interspersed as though they had been put there by hand. The wrong side is a solid bright green. The laces have long since fallen off; some of the remnants I still possess".

 

From Notes of George Harrison Sanford King.

 

From the book The Thomas Family by a Mr. Thomas of Dallas this description of the Gown.

 

"HIS BRIDE, WHO STARTED THE SUCCESSION OF GIRLS BY THE NAME OF PENELOPE, WORE AT HER WEDDING A COSTLY GOWN THAT HAS SINCE BEEN HANDED DOWN TO SUCCESSIVE GENERATIONS OF DESCENDANTS NAMED PENELOPE.

 

THE GOWN WAS MADE OF HEAVY PALE GREEN MATERIAL, ELABORATELY TRIMMED WITH THE

 

FINEST LACE AND SPARKLING JEWELS. AFTER HER MARRIAGE, ACCORDING TO FAMILY TRADITION, SHE APPEARED BEFORE THE COURTS OF EUROPE IN HER "GEORGEOUS TROUSEAR". THE FIRST PENELOPE REQUESTED THAT THE GOWN SHOULD BE HANDED DOWN

 

TO THOSE WHO WOULD BEAR HER NAME AND THAT EACH SHOULD MARRY IN IT, OR WEAR

 

IT ONCE. WE DO NOT KNOW ON WHAT OCCASION PENELOPE EDWARDS THOMAS WORE THE

 

DRESS; UNDOUBTEDLY IT WAS NOT FOR HER MARRIAGE. SHE GAVE THE DRESS TO HER DAUGHTER, PENELOPE THOMAS COUCH, WHO IN TURN GAVE IT TO HER GRANDDAUGHTER,

 

AZALEA PENELOPE SMITH DOWNS. IT IS STILL IN THE POSSESSION OF THE FAMILY AND IS OCCASIONALLY ON DISPLAY AT THE CULLEN HOUSE MUSEUM IN SAN AUGUSTINE, TX."

THE MYSTERY OF "METHUSELAH JOHN" SUMMERS

 

A few years ago, I came by a copy of my family history written by a grand daughter of my Enoch Summers. In the history, she stated that her great grandparents were John & Lois Summers. She further stated that John lived to be 116 years old & that he had fathered his last child at the age of 100! He had vowed to live long enough to see his daughter turn 16.

 

At first thought I was thrilled to find my Enoch's parents! And then I thought, "Ya right! This guy fathered a child at 100 & lived to be 116!" I was back to the drawing board searching, as I discounted this info!

Notes for Benjamin (V) Harrison:

 

A Signer of The Declaration of Independence and a Governor of Virginia.

 

Berkeley Plantation was long the seat of the Harrison family, one of the First Families of Virginia. It was the birthplace of Benjamin Harrison V, son of the builder, who was a signer of the Declaration of Independenceand three-time Governor of Virginia. His third son,William Henry Harrison, was born at Berkeley. A famous Indian fighter known as "Tippecanoe", William Henry Harrison later became the ninth President of the United States, in 1841, although he died shortly after taking office. His grandson, Benjamin Harrison, was the 23rd President. On December 4, 1619, early settlers from England came ashore at Berkeley and observed the first official Thanksgiving in America. It was also the site of the first playing of Taps at the conclusion of the Peninsula Campaign of 1862 during the American Civil War. It is normally open for tours 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. daily.

 

     Benjamin (V) Harrison and Elizabeth Bassett had the following children:

 

i.        BENJAMIN (VI)9 HARRISON.

 

ii.       WILLIAM HENRY (GEN & PRESIDENT) HARRISON was born on 09 Feb 1773 in Berkeley, Charles City Co, VA. He died on 04 Apr 1841 in White House, Washington, D.C.. He married Anne Tuthill Symmes, daughter of Judge John Cleves Symmes on 25 Nov 1795. She was born on 25 Jul 1775 in Flatbrook, NJ. She died on 15 Feb 1864 in North Bend, OH.

 

Notes for William Henry (Gen & President) Harrison:

 

William Henry Harrison (February 9, 1773 - April 4, 1841) was the ninth President of the United States (1841), an American military officer and politician, and the first president to die in office. He was 68 years, 23 days old when inaugurated, the oldest president to take office until Ronald Reagan in 1981, and last President to be born before the United States Declaration of Independence. Harrison died on his 32nd day in office[a] of complications from pneumonia, serving the shortest  tenure in United States presidential history. His death sparked a brief constitutional crisis, but that crisis ultimately resolved many questions about presidential

                               succession left unanswered by the Constitution until passage of the 25th Amendment.

 

Before election as president, Harrison served as the first territorial congressional delegate from the Northwest Territory, governor of the Indiana Territory and later as a U.S. representative and senator from Ohio. He originally gained national fame for leading U.S. forces against American Indians at the Battle of Tippecanoe in 1811,[1] where he earned the nickname "Tippecanoe" (or "Old Tippecanoe"). As a general in the subsequent War of 1812, his most notable contribution was a victory at the Battle of the Thames in 1813, which brought an end to hostilities in his region.

 

After the war, Harrison moved to Ohio, where he was elected to the United States House of Representatives, and in 1824 he became a member of the Senate. There he served a truncated term before being appointed as Minister Plenipotentiary to Colombia in May 1828. In Colombia, he spoke with Simón Bolívar urging his nation to adopt American-style democracy, before returning to his farm in Ohio, where he lived in relative retirement until he was nominated for the presidency in 1836. Defeated, he retired again to his farm before being elected president in 1840, and died of pneumonia in April 1841, a month after taking office.

 

In 1795 Harrison met Anna Symmes, of North Bend, Ohio. She was the daughter of Judge John Cleves Symmes, a prominent figure in the state, and former representative to the Congress of the Confederation.[2] When Harrison asked the judge for permission to marry Anna, he was refused. Harrison waited until Symmes left on business, then he and Anna eloped and married on November 25, 1795.[12] Afterward, concerned about Harrison's ability to provide for Anna, Symmes sold the young couple 160 acres (65 ha) of land in North Bend.[13]

 

Together they had 10 children. Nine lived into adulthood and one died in infancy. Anna was frequently in poor health during the marriage, primarily due to her many pregnancies.[14] Nevertheless, she outlived William by 23 years, dying at age 88 on February 25, 1864.

 

Harrison is also believed to have had six children with one of his female slaves, Dilsia. When he ran for president he did not want "bastard slave children" around, so he gave four of his children to his brother, who sold them to a Georgia planter. Through this family line, Harrison is the great-grandfather of famous black civil rights activist Walter Francis White. White was the president of the NAACP from 1931-1955.[15]

Description: Adjoining lots of German Town, and bounded by Vawter, Tabbs, John Kenton; to a survey of land laid off for Samuel Thompson and sold by him to Joel Jackson to a survey made for Myers: then to John Adams Land. I n 1786 Daniel Feagan's family, John Arnold's family and John Kirkpatrick migrated from Virginia down the Ohio River in flat boats, the only way to travel in those times. They made their homes for eight or ten years on the Kentucky side of the Ohio River, not far from Simon Kenton's Station, near Limestone, now Maysville, and Augusta just below Maysville.

 

Daniel Feagan knew Kenton before they left Virginia and he warned them on their way down the river to watch for Indian decoys, such as kettles on poles for camping along the river. In those days the Indians were on the warpath and brought sorrow to many pioneer homes.

 

Captain Feagan was given a Grant of 3000 acres of land for his service in the Revolutionary War, 2,000 on the Kentucky side of the Ohio and 1000 on the Ohio side in Brown County, then Clermont County. He made his clearing near where Georgetown now stands and died there in 1815.

Notes for Sanford Edwards:

 

Sanford was surgeon general in general Marion's army. Dr. Berwick, one of the ablest and most distinguished of French surgeons, justly said of him. " Had Edwards lived in France, he would have been elected a member of the Royal Academy of Surgery, received from the king the Cross of the Legion of Honor, and obtained from the government a magnificent reward as an Acknowledgment of the services he rendered his country, his profession and His fellow creatures." His professional history is that of the greatest Advance in surgical science of modern times. With a broad and elevated mind, And a heart gentle and tender as that of a woman, he was not afraid of the Sight of blood; preeminently bold, his exceptional skill was aided by an Unfailing nerve. He was no mere money grabber; careless as to pecuniary Rewards, for the poor he had a kindness and a charity that were Inexhaustible." --Edwards Family History By Georgie Edwards

 

From George Harrison Sanford King:

 

"He Served as a Corporal, 2nd Troop, Va. Light Dragoons, 1st Regiment, Commanded by Col. Theodoric Bland, Pay Roll, 1777. He is said to have removed to South Carolina Shortly after the Revolutionary War, and to have been a distinguished physician."

38.      JOHN9 EDWARDS (Hayden Harrison8, William7, Anne or Elizabeth6 Harrison, Hanna5 Churchill, John4 Churchhill, John3 Churchill, John2 Churchill, William1 Churchill) was born in 1748 in Stafford Co, VA. He died in 1833 in Cape Girardeau, MO. He married Susanna Wroe, daughter of Original Wroe and Jane Lyne in 1768 in Prince William Co, VA. She was born on 01 May 1748 in Westmoreland Co, VA. She died in 1833 in Bourbon Co, KY.

 

Notes for John Edwards:

 

First clerk of Bourbon County court. One of the first U.S. senators from Kentucky.

 

As early as 1781 in the first order book of Lincoln County, Kentucky, John was recommended as one of the commissioners of the peace of that county. Under date of May court, 1783, Lincoln County, is recorded the following: "be it ordered that the following persons be recommended to his excellency the governor of Virginia to be appointed officers of the militia of this county, to wit: John Logan, esq. Colonel of 1st battalion, John Edwards, esq., Lt Colonel, and George Adams as mayor.

 

The National Encyclopedia of American Biography contains the following; "John Edwards in 1780 removed to that portion of Virginia which was shortly afterwards formed into the State of Kentucky. He represented Fayette county in the Kentucky legislature in 1781, '82.'83, '85, in the last year being one of the commissioners who selected Frankfort as the seat of government. He was a delegate at the conventions of 1785, 1787, And 1788, and assisted in settling the boundary of the state and in forming its constitution, and in 1792 was elected to the convention which ratified the federal constitution. He was the first United Stated States Senator from Kentucky 1792 to 1795. In the latter year he was again elected to the State Legislature and continued to serve in that body from 1796 to 1800 when he retired to private life."

 

He had stores in Paris and Washington, Kentucky as well as numerous farms to occupy his time. At Westwood there were vast orchards and vineyards. He was one of few who produced a wine in central Kentucky. He also operated several grist mills.

 

Between the years beginning with April 4, 1803 until August 22, 1807 John was a master mason in the Abraham Lodge no. 8 f & AM in Louisville. There is no evidence that he ever held an office. [info from the rosters of members]

 

Sometime before 1800, Edwards left the family home and took up residence at Duncan Tavern in Paris for reasons . Later he was sued for not paying his bill there.

 

In March 1800 Colonel John Edwards made a deed of trust to his wife and children, and seems to have left Bourbon County, and it is probable that he died in Missouri. (note Mo. Will included) His first home after Bourbon County was in Washington, Kentucky which was the county seat of Mason county. He operated a store near Simon Kenton and had mills in the county as well. He also owned property across the Ohio river in Adams County. He later moved to Scioto County, Ohio then to Greenup county, Kentucky before finally settling Cape Girardeau, Missouri.

Recorded March 3rd 1834 By His Deputy Benjamin Bacon

 

Before moving to Kentucky, John became known for his pro-slavery beliefs. Also before moving to Kentucky there were business transactions between John Edwards and several of his brothers-in--law. The records of Prince William County, Virginia contain the following:

 

"Know all men by these presents that I Richard Wroe and Benjamin Wroe of Prince William County have bargained and sold unto John Edwards of Lincoln County (Kentucky), our rights, titles to a negro girl named Roseland, by the last will of our father , to the children return to us with the following executors, William Wroe and Thomas Wroe. We see and convey our rights of the value of 25 pounds received and vest him the said John Edwards, with the power and authority we have to manage and direct the said negro and as our brother, William Wroe, is deceased it is not known whether there is three or four parts to the said negro girl, if only three then said Edwards is to make up our portion over and above half, as witness our hands and seal this 3rd day of December 1783. Richard Wroe and Benjamin Wroe. "

 

Test. Carty Wells and William Wroe at a Court held for Prince William County this 1st day of March 1784. This Bill of Sale from Richard Wroe and Benjamin Wroe to John Edwards was proved by the Oathes of the Witnesses and ordered to be recorded.

 

On July 15, 1799, in the Washington District Court of Bourbon County , John Edwards sold to Jesse Williams, "......one molatto woman or girl named Preciller that I purchased of Wm Stamps....."

 

Just seven days later, on July 22, 1799, Jesse Williams filed a deed of Emancipation in which it is stated:

 

"....For security payment of forty pounds to me given by my slave girl sometimes known by the name of Preciller Johnson and for divers good causes and considerations hereunto moveing have manumitted emancipated and set free my molatto girl or woman slave ( several unreadable words) twenty-two years (believed to be her age) purchased of Col. John Edwards... For myself my heirs executors and administrators release and forever quit claim to the said slave girl (of all) manner of slavery servitude and service whatsoever together with all the children that may be hereafter born of (her) and they to injoy all rights of free persons agreeable to (the laws) of said State...... ( It is noted that, at that time, an able-bodied 22 year old female slave would normally have been expected to bring many times the amount "Preciller" paid for her freedom.)

 

Significantly, both of the above transactions were certified and recorded by the court clerk , John Chambers, on the same day, July 23. 1799. It seems quite clear that, as a recognized leader of the pro-slavery faction in Kentucky, Edwards could not simply give Preciller her freedom. He could, however, sell her to Jesse Williams and Jesse could emancipate her, accepting as small a security payment as he wished.

 

In 1800 after entrusting Westwood and the slaves living there to his wife and children , John began a new chapter of his life.

 

At one time he owned vast acreage in Kentucky that he had received for his militia time. For some reason he became indebted to his father for several hundred pounds. Hayden had evidently been unsuccessful in getting his money so in his will he stated that the loan had to be repaid or John would be disinherited. It was not.

 

There followed many suits against Edwards for unpaid bills. Notices appeared in several local papers. John offered for sale numerous pieces of property including Westwood to try to pay his debts.

 

Between the time of 1800 and 1803 when Hayden died, John sold a great deal of his land. Sometime between the years 1800 and 1804 he filed for bankruptcy. His sons Hayden and John, Jr. Were appointed by the Kentucky courts to oversee the settlement of this procedure.

 

Kentucky Gazette Newspaper Advertisement, Monday, October 12, 1801 placed by John Edwards, Sr.

 

"Great bargains will be sold by the subscriber, and in a greater part extensive credits will be given in annual payments,the purchaser giving good bond and security. The following property will sell from this day forward, [to wit:]

 

Eight valuable buildings, and the lots of ground they are on in Paris. They begin at the main corner street facing the court house, and running parallel with the public ground one hundred feet. The first a large two story frame building in which there is a large well finished store house and counting room, both large fireplaces of brick; the other part well calculated for a tavern six well finished rooms plastered and four large fireplaces; another room, thirty-six feet by twenty and two fire places and within five feet of the back door, a brick lodging room and a kitchen adjoining. The balance of the building of brick two stories high with four houses twenty feet square rented out to different families.convenient to those are two small kitchens. There is a stable and small garden for the use of the large building. I have also nine acres of lots in excellent order for cultivation. Those buildings were first valued by a number of workmen at eight thousand dollars; and several useful additions have been made to them since.

John Edwards, Sen. 14 September, 1801

 

Mason County Court Records 421 [Sic] 4 Dec. 1802. John Edwards of Mason County sets his slave, Winne Jason, a mulatto girl, free forever. Clerk William Murphy

 

Mason County Deed Book A-C, Page 45, Dated April 18, 1803

It is unclear exactly where John and Priscilla were living during this time.

 

It is believed that they may have been in the Mason County or Greenup County areas of Kentucky. Priscilla may have worked for other people during this time. She may have had to cross the river into Ohio because many slaves were forced to leave once they were freed.

 

In any case, the children began to arrive . Joseph, John, Sally, Mary and Jane were all mentioned in Priscilla's 1838 Perry County, Mo., will. In Scioto County, Ohio Priscilla registered herself at the courthouse as a freed mulatto along with three daughters; Nelly, Harriet and Pernealy. A neighbor in Cape Girardeau mentioned by name Lou and Asa.

 

As early as 1817 Priscilla and John began acquiring property in the Cape Girardeau/Perry County areas of Missouri. Sometimes she was referred to as a 'housekeeper' or 'landlady' of John.

 

The index of purchasers of the United States land sales office in Missouri shows that Priscilla johnson purchased land at the lexington land office in the term ending december 31, 1826; john edwards purchased land at the same land office in the term of march 15, 1827.

 

At the Lexington, Missouri land office, Priscilla purchased more land in the term beginning January 1, 1834.

 

It is unclear where he acquired the funds for them to start purchasing property in Missouri after filing for bankruptcy. It is apparent that at his death he was again solvent.

 

Both his personal and business affairs for the period of time after 1800 until his death continue to puzzle descendants. It is believed that he maintained contact with some of his legitimate children and that John and Jane traveled to Missouri to settle his estate.

 

Except for the fact that he left his wife and family, the relationship which certainly appears to have existed between John and Preciller Johnson, was not an especially unusual one. It is the pro-slavery position that John held that surprises one.
