Burton (aka "Dr. Bill"); Kathy Goodman; Linda Harris; Robert Hopkins; Daniel Scarborough Hoyle; William F. Leatherbury; Robert Mears; Ralph McNabb, M.K. Miles; William G. Parker; the Jameses Revell, Sr. and Jr.; Norman Ricker; Alexander Scarborough; George Scarborough; Judy Stell; Ron Sweeney, Tom Turlington; Gail M. Walczyk; Betty Walt; Jeffrey Webb.

Generation No. 1

1. CAPTAIN EDMUND12 SCARBOROUGH (HENRY11, HENRY10, JOHN9, HENRY8, HENRY7, JOHN6, JOHN5, NICHOLAS4 SCARDBURG, ROBERTE3 DE SCARDEBURG, HENRY2, ?1 SCARDEBURG) was born December 1584 in North Walsham, Norfolk, England, and died Bet. April 1634 - 09 January 1634/35 in Eastern Shore, Accomack Co., Virginia. He married HANNAH BUTLER 1615 in England, daughter of ROBERT BUTLER. She was born Abt. 1585 in England, and died Aft. 1636 in Virginia.

Notes for CAPTAIN EDMUND SCARBOROUGH:

Captain Edmond Scarborough was prominent in the affairs of Ye Kingdome of Accawmacke from the time of his arrival, circa 1620 in Virginia, serving as the first Justice of Accomac county in 1631 and as Burgess in 1629, 1631, and 1632. ...his wife, Hannah, did not come to Virginia with him, but remained in England until he was settled and had prepared a place for her.

CAPTAIN EDMUND SCARBOROUGH, the son of Henry Scarborough of North Walsham, Norfolk County, came to this country, bringing his wife Hannah, and his son Edmund. He was Commissioner of Accomac County, Va., and a member of the Board of Justices, 1632, and of the House of Burgesses from 1628 to 1630.18 He died 1634, leaving two sons, Charles and Edmund Scarborough. Sir Charles was educated at Caiu's College, Cambridge, and was physician to Charles II., James II. and William I. He was knighted 1669, a member of Parliament, and died 1693 (Feb 26 1694 per Southern Kith & Kin); buried at Cranford, Middlesex.

COLONEL EDMUND SCARBOROUGH, was of Northampton County, and for many years one of the most useful men in Virginia. He was Burgess 1642 to 1671, the year of his death; Surveyor-General of the colony from 1655 to 1671, and Speaker of the House, 1645; High Sheriff 1660 to 1661, and frequently Justice. He gave to Hungars Church one thousand acres of land. This church, the third erected in Northampton County, was built in 1680, of brick made and burnt just behind the church, where are still the remains of the old kiln. He married Mary, the daughter of STEPHEN CHARLTON, who was a member of the House of Burgesses 1644, 1645, and 1647, and they had several children, among them Matilda, who married JOHN WEST I., and Tabitha, who married first, William Smart, and third, JOHN CUSTIS II.

He met (2) ANN TOFT Abt. 1660. She was born 1643, and died Abt. 1688 in Accomack Co., VA.

Notes for COLONEL EDMOND SCARBOROUGH II:

Col. Edmond Scarborough, the second son of Captain Edmond and Hannah Butler came to America with his father. He married Mary Littleton, [sic; see Mary] daughter of Col. Nathaniel Littleton, in England, and patented vast tracts of land in Virginia. (Mary Scarborough did not come over with her husband, but arrived in 1640, brought over by her husband, Edmond Scarborough, of Accomac, according to Greer.) He held the highest offices within the gift of the people, and the Crown, and was the most distinguished member of the family, as well as the most spectacular. There are many traditions concerning him and his high handed actions in Colonial Virginia, some of which were called unscrupulous. He was called "Conjurer" by the Indians, who hated and feared him, and was anathema to the Puritans and Quakers, whom he considered his special enemies.

The Scarboroughs were the largest land owners on the Eastern Shore, and with their powerful connections, exercised almost feudal powers in the Colony. Though there were many clashes with Colonial authorities, and sometimes with the mother country, Col. Edmond Scarborough was able to avoid serious punishment because of the influence of his brother, Sir Charles Scarborough, Court Physician at the Court of St. James. When under fire in Virginia, he conveniently removed temporarily to Maryland, where he had large holdings, or to New England, where his ships were constantly in port. (Owned a ship called Mayflower but not Pilgrim's Mayflower.) As Surveyor-General, Col. Scarborough fixed boundary lines that suited his convenience, and was able to extend the southern boundary of Accomac County in order to include his home, which normally would lie in Northampton County, if the two counties were equally divided. He still owned land in Northampton, after the division of the two counties, and was the King's Collector of Quit Rents, among his other official duties under the Crown.

When Col. Edmond Scarborough surveyed and marked the boundary between Maryland and Virginia, Governor Calvert, of Maryland, was vigorous in his protest. A new survey was finally made, called the Calvert-Scarborough Line, ratified by the Legislatures of the two states, and recognized in 1688 as the boundary line.

Col. Edmond Scarborough was indeed a versatile man. He not only managed his large plantations, with his many slaves and servants, and had heavy official duties with his various Colonial offices, but he was interested in many of the colony's early manufacturing ventures. He had the exclusive right to make salt, had one of the earliest shoe factories, and malt plants, and carried on an extensive shipping business. He was also an able lawyer, and a power in the Courts. Though an ardent Royalist, it has been said that would undoubtedly have joined Bacon in his Rebellion, as his son, Col. Charles Scarborough, did had he lived a few years longer, for he was an avowed enemy of Governor Berkeley, with whom he had many clashes. Col. Charles Scarborough was joined in his allegiance to Bacon by his cousin, William Scarborough, though his brother, Captain Edmond Scarborough, remained loyal to Governor Berkeley. After the death of Bacon, and the collapse of the rebellion, Col. Charles Scarborough escaped with only a fine, while his cousin, William Scarborough, was sentenced to death and his property confiscated, March 16, 1677. The defection of Col. Charles Scarborough was evidently forgiven, for in 1692 he was the Naval Officer and Collector for the Eastern Shore, under Governor Andros, and served until 1698. His father, Col. Edmond Scarborough, had held this office during his lifetime, and the son of Col. Charles, Henry Scarborough, succeeded his father in 1699.

This fiery Col. Edmond Scarborough, with all of his faults was a remarkable man of his day, for in spite of his unbridled violence, and will, his loyalty to Virginia and her institutions could not be questioned. Among his many offices were the following: Member of the House of Burgesses, 1642-1671; Speaker of the House of Burgesses, 1645; Justice of Northampton County; Sheriff in 1666; Surveyor General for Virginia, 1665-1671, and numerous offices in the Church. He died circa 1673 and is probably buried on his estate on Occahannock Creek, where his home, called Hedrick Cottage, was still standing a few years ago. The neck of land between Craddocks Creek, and Occahannock Creek was called Scarborough's Neck.

From: rmcnabb@ameritech.net (Ralph McNabb)

Nov. 10, 1668

Petition of David Fairvacks of London, Merchant, Edmond Scarborough of Virginia, Merchant, borrowed money from him which he promised to repay after his arrival in Virginia; he has now been there many years and has built up a large estate which he settled on his children but the petitioner has not been repaid.

He was baptized October 2, 1617 in St. Martins, London, England.(908) He accompanied his parents to Virginia, while his elder brother Charles remained in England to complete his education. At the death of Captain Edmund Scarborough, he assumed the responsibility of settling his fathers affairs in Virginia. On November 28, 1635 he patented 200 acres of land on Magothy Bay in Accomac County- "fifty acres for his late father, Captain Edmund Scarborough, fifty acres for the personal venture of his mother, Hannah Scarborough, fifty acres for his own personal venture, and fifty acres for the transportation of one servant called Robert Butler." This was the first of many land patents issued to Col. Edmund Scarborough; in subsequent years he acquired lands totaling more than 46,500 acres, and became the largest landholder on the Eastern shore of Virginia. Col. Edmund Scarborough was a vindictive Indian baiter, an intolerant persecuter of the Quaker settlers in the area, and a totally unscrupulous politician and business man. On the other hand, he was totally fearless, a gifted orator, a shrewd lawyer, an accomplished surveyer and engineer, and a highly successful planter and merchant. He served a number of terms in the house of Burgesses (where for a time he was speaker), was sheriff of Northampton County, played a major role in drawing up the famous "Northampton Protest", and for many years was Surveyer-General of Virginia, in which capacity he surveyed the boundry between Virginia and Maryland on the Eastern Shore. He erected on his estates a malt house, a shoe factory, and a salt works, and he was the owner of numerous ships with which he carried on an extensive trade with England, New England, the Netherlands and the West Indies. He was the first to import Negro Slaves of any number into Virginia. The Colonel was constantly involved in quarrels with his neighbors and business associates. At one time (July 1653) his conduct was such that he was charged with treason and piracy and forced to flee the colony. In a little over a year, however, he was back in Virginia, and incredibly enough, within a few months gained back everything he had lost and more. From this time to the restoration (1660) he was on the best terms with Governor Bennett and the Parliamentary authorities - indeed, his eldest son Charles later married Governor Bennett's daughter Elizabeth. With the restoration of the monarchy under Charles II, Scarborough's influence and power increased still more, and he consistantly flouted the laws, refused to pay his debts, and blithely disregarded the decisions of the courts and the mandates of Governor William Berkely. The influence of his brother Sir Charles Scarborough at the English court seems largely to account for the Colonel's immunity.

Subject: The Ships of Edmund Scarbrough

I found the following reference on the GHOTES site under "History of the E.S." then scroll down to "Tidbits about the E.S." as Follows:

In 1652 Col. Scarbrough planned to return to England for good. He sold the following ocean going ships to William Burton of Boston, Mass.:

1. The Deliverance

2. The Mayflower

3. King David

4. The Sea Horse

5. The Holly Horse

6. The Ann Clear

7. The Artillery

The reason this is of interest to me is that we have a reference stating that Daniel Isham (Esham) was brought to Northampton Co. from London in 1652 on the bark Mayflower a ship owned by Edmund Scarbrough. This reference was obtained from the MD archive by one of the above addressees but has since vanished.

This find on Ghotes is the first verification I have seen that Edmund Scarbrough was a ship owner and did indeed own a bark named Mayflower. "Early Virginia Immigrants" by George Cable Greer sites Thomas Teakle as the sponsor of Daniel's trip for which he received the usual fifty acres. Daniel was indentured to Derman MacCloud and five years later received a cow called "Sweet Lips" for his servitude. This is proven by the will of MacCloud.

As to the question "is this the original Mayflower" the answer is No. The orignal Mayflower was declared unseaworthy and salvaged in London in the Late 1620's. This ship was refered to as a Bark. I have no idea what class the Pilgrims Mayflower may have been. There were apparently many ships and boats of various kinds called the Mayflower, The May Flower and so on.

Best Wishes to all,

Just a note: A bark is a 3 to five masted "Tall" ship (bigger than a schooner.) In the 1800's they were used to transport bananas and other goods up the Chesapeake from the Carribean to Baltimore. They are some still around today...

Subject: Confrence question update

This is an update on the question posed at the conference in regard to Col. Edmund Scarburgh having "two" sons with the name Charles. This theory would not alter the genealogy of those people whose lines that run through the Charles, son of Col. Edmund, who married Elizabeth Bennet's genealogies.

At the end of my talk on Source Materials Wednesday, June 21st, I asked the question "What does this entry mean?"

Mackay, Dr. Howard and Hinkley, Marlene Alma Grover, CG, Northampton County Virginia Record Book Volume 5, 1654-1655, (Rockport ME: Picton Press.) p 48.

[Transcription.]

"This day (in open Cort) Leift Collonll Edm: Scarburgh did produce an Accott of ye Estate of his Eldest sonn Charles Scarburgh wch said Accott is by ordr to bee Recorded (as in such cases is provided) in Lawe for Orphantes Estate."

 

The question was why was this Estate ordered to recorded as in law for Orphans Estates? Who is the orphan?

There were three suppositions given:

1. He's the "orphan." The entry itself states that Edmund Scarburgh did produce the Account.

2. "He might be considered an orphan if his mother has died."

3. "This Charles had at least one orphan himself." [the known Charles, son of Edmund didn't die until 1701/1702]

Col. Edmund Scarburgh is alive and so is a Mary his wife. For in the next entry she disposes that Randall Revel came up to Occahanocke to her husband's house.

This might have been the case except that Mary Scarburgh's will was proved 15 December 1691. An abstract reads: Mary Scarburgh, now resident at the House of Anthony West at Merry Branch - To grandson Anthony West, To his daughter Matilda. To daughter Matilda West. Sone Charles Scarburgh. Daughter Tabitha Custis. Son Edmund Scarburgh. To grandson Edmund Scarburgh (under 12), the son of Edmund Scarburgh. To granddaughter Mary West. Granddaughter Tabitha Custis, Daughter Matilda West & grandson Anthony West resid. legatees & Ex'rs. Witt: James Martin, Tully Robinson, Richard Bally - Codicil revoking legacy to son Charles Scarburgh on account of neglect. Nottingham, Stratton, Wills and Administrations of Accomack County, Virginia 1663-1800, (Bowie MD: Heritage Books, Inc., 1990), p 20.

This leaves open the possibility that Edmund Scarburgh was married twice and his first wife is the mother of Charles. In December 1678 Charles gives his age as 35. Making his birth year about 1643. Mihalyka, Jean & Houston, William R. M., Colonial Residents of Virginia's Eastern Shore, (Baltimore MD:

Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc. 1985), p 91. This scenario would also make Madam Tabitha Custis, daughter of Edmund Scarburgh the daughter of the unknown first wife, for in May 1693 Tabitha Custis stated she was 53 (circa 1640) and in November 1695 stated that she was 56 (circa 1639).

Did Mary mean "stepson Charles" and "stepdaughter Tabitha" etc.? [This would change genealogy.]

The third edition of "Adventurers of Purse and Person, Virginia 1607-1624/5, published by: Order of First Families of Virginia 1607-1624/5, 1987, on page 542 footnote 25 states "--------- An accounting rendered by Lt. Col. Edmund Scarburgh of the estate of his eldest son, Charles which was ordered 28 August 1654 to be received as in such cases is provided for Law for Orphants Estates' might suggest that he was a [half] orphan, and thus that Edmund had two wives, both named Mary. The widow Mary named all of the children as hers in her will."

There is another entry in Northampton County recorded 14 April 1642 "--------- I Mathew Pett doe for me my heyers and Administrators Assigne make sale of and Confirme one Yearling heifer of a darke browne Colour and marked on the Right eare with a Cropp unto Edmund and Tabitha Scarburgh theire heyers Excutors and assignes and doe by these presentes acknowledge to have Received full satisfaction for the same. Witness my Hand this 20th of July Anno 1641." Ames, Susie M., County Court Records of Accomack-Northampton Virginia 1640-1645, (Charlottesville VA: The University Press of Virginia,

1973), p 153.

The question here is: would a father with his two year old daughter, buy a heifer or is this Tabitha his unknown first wife?

These questions now remain:

1. Did Charles Scarburgh have two sons by the name Charles, one who died before 1654 (born no later than 1634,) and left a least one orphan and the Charles who was born in 1643 and married Elizabeth Bennett? [The problem with this is that his father Lt. Col. Edmund Scarburgh birth is noted by his

baptism on 2 October 1617 [Was he an infant? At what age was a child baptized at this time?] as cited in Purse & Person. If Edmund was an infant at the time of his baptism it would make about 16 at the time of this Charles' birth.

2. If he was called the "Orphan" because his mother had died, who was she?

3. Did Edmund Scarburgh marry two Marys or is the Tabitha mentioned above his first wife.

4. Why did Mary Scarburgh list Tabitha and Charles as her children if they were stepchildren?

Tract A54: CHARLES SCARBURGH was the eldest son of COLONEL EDMOND and MARY SCARBURGH (A17), and from later depositions giving his age he must have been born in 1643. About the time of the first patent (for 3,050 acres in 1652, or soon thereafter, CHARLES was in London for his education and did not take up residence on his home land, which he called Fairfield, until late in 1664, as nearly as can be determined from the records.

1654: William Whittington was made "Feoffee in trust and Guardyan to the Estate of CHARLES the Eldest sonne of LEIFTENANT COLLONEL EDMUND SCARBURGH." Among the assets at the time were "9 Hogsheads of Tobacco received for the Sale of a Tract of Land;" nothing more was found recorded about Whittington as acting in that capacity and apparently the colonel soon took over full management of his son's affairs.

Notes for ANN TOFT:

Mrs. Ann Toft was in Accomack County by 1660. In 1663, Edmund Scarborough sold her a bay mare.

Her daughters were born between 1665 and 1671 (1665= oldest that one could be to be under age 17 in July 1672; she married Jennifer after 1671)

From the research of Pamela and Robert Leland Johnson regarding Ann Toft:

Anne Toft lived at Gargaphie Plantation which was owned originally by Colonel Edmund Scarborough II. The first patent (800 acres) to mention her was granted to her on November 3, 1660 (A777, from Colonel Edmund) when she was 17. In February 1664, Ann received the patent for 1,200 acres which became the basis for her home plantation of Gargaphie. There were no other settlers within miles of her. "In 1669, Edmund Scarburgh and Mary Scarburgh sold the land to Mistress Anne Toft for 9,101 pounds of Mevis Sugar in Cask and 708 pounds of Indigo. After the marriage of Mistress Toft to Daniel Jenifer, a joint patent was issued to them in 1672 for 5,000 acres to include the above and 2,000 acres of new land; in later transactions this new part usually was called swamp land." (Virginia's Eastern Shore--A History of Northampton and Accomack Counties, Vol 2, p 1350, Ralph T. Whitelaw)

On July 15, 1672, Daniel and his wife Ann "lately called Ann Toft" recorded a document to the effect that 5,000 acres at Gingoteague (the name of the Indians living at that area) were to be set aside for the daughters of Ann Toft. In 1686, the final deeds of transfer were made prior to the death of Ann Toft Jenifer.

"Gargaphie comes from Ovid's Metamorphoses, iii, 180, and refers to the bower where Diana and her nymphs disported." (RLJ)

The land was improved and several industrial enterprises were started on the land. In August 1668, Articles of Agreement were drawn up between Edmund Scarborough and Ann Toft. She agreed to allow him "during his natural life" to make use of her plantation as he "thinks fitt" to conduct his business and she agreed to improve all and every part of his concerns during his absence. Edmund renounced "all and every claim, right interest, profitt or title" to any part of the land, animals or goods on the land after his death for himself and his heirs or creditors.

Subject: Anne Toft

As I've been working on different things I've entered some Ann Toft info:

1. Anne Mrs. Toft, was born circa 1643 (Mihalyka, Jean & Houston, William R. M., Colonial Residents of Virginia's Eastern Shore (Baltimore MD: Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc. 1985), p 105 (hereafter cited as Mihalyka, Jean & Houston William R. M., Colonial Residents). On 27 October 1662 in Accomack Co., VA Edmund Scarburgh Col., of Edmund sold Anne Mrs. Toft a bay mare with a white star on its forehead. Witt: James Cade, Jno. Alexander and recorded 23 May 1663 (McKey, JoAnn Riley., Accomack County Virginia Court Order Abstracts 1663-1666 Volume 1 (Bowie MD: Heritage Books, Inc., 1996), p 11 (hereafter cited as McKey, JoAnn Riley, Accomack Abstracts 1). On on 21 April 1663 in Accomack Co., VA a certificate was granted unto Anne Mrs. Toft for transporting 24 persons due per rights (Ibid., p 2). The list reads: "Mary Bridgnorth, Thomas Chandler, Tobias Dunster, Mary Esthop, John Hartford, Atlanta Hues, Even Jones, John Jones, James Knowles, Michael Loues, Morgan Mahn, Thomas Messenger, William Outred, Richard Porter, Margret Roxby, Thomas Rouse, John Smith, Peter Strong, Abram Vincent Michael White, Jeffry Wilkins, Owen Williams, Mary Willis."

The deposition of Anne Mrs. Toft was taken on 16 December 1663 in Accomack Co., VA (Ibid., p 54). An Abstract reads: "Deposition of Mrs. Anne Toft, aged 20 years, 16 December 1663: Almost last April Jno. Custis, Jno. Mellish -- master of the ship Royal Oake, and Jno. Sheppard came to Col. Edmund Scarburgh at Pungoteague requesting to have their ship released for seizure. Anne understood from their conversation that the ship was seized upon its first arrival, for it had come directly from Holland to Virginia with various goods and had neither a passport from any British port, nor proof that the Royal Oake was a free ship of England. Then Mr. Custis went out of the house and talked privately with Col. Scarburgh, then with the master and toe merchant by turns, and then sometimes they spoke to Scarburgh together, but what they said Anne did not know. When they came in again, Mr. John Custis solemnly swore that the Royal Oake was the same ship that Scarburgh drew a bond, and Anne witnessed that it was signed and sealed by Mr. Mellish, Mr Sheppard and Mr. Custis and delivered to Col. Scarburgh for His Majesty's use. After that the men talked about hogheads of tobacco that were shipped on the Royal Oake without certificate and were seized according to the Act of Assembly. Then Scarburgh said he would not take, but because they needed tobacco, he would put more in if they would carry the amount of tobacco seized for a friend of his and deliver them in Holland without charge. They All left the house and Anne saw them walking together and apart with Col. Scarburgh. when they came in again, she heard them all agree to deliver forty hogsheads clear of charges to Holland. One of them urged Col. Scarburgh to pay 2 shillings per hogshead of the seized tobacco for Virginia customs, which he agreed to. The master said he would send his sloops for the tobacco. They stayed an hour or more afterwards merrily eating and drinking and acting very satisfied, saying they were glad the had ended their business this way. A few days later Claus, the master's mate of the Royal Oake came to Pungotege with two sloops and told Scarburgh he had come for forty hogsheads of tobacco and whatever more Scarburgh wanted to send. So they carried away tobacco, but how much Anne did not know. Signed Anne Toft."

Anne Mrs. Toft testified in the Benston vs Smith case on 12 March 1663/64 in Accomack Co., VA (Ibid., p 77). An abstract reads: Deposition of Amey Fookes aged about 50 years: Said that about last January she was at Mrs. Anne Toft's house where she talked with Jane, the wife of Robert Hill. Jane said

that William Benston had killed Mr. Smith's sow, and she would prove it: - ----------." Oath of Anne Toft, 12 March 1663/64: "What Amey Fookes said is the truth. Sigined, Anne Toft."

Anne Mrs. Toft was mentioned in court on 16 June 1666 in Accomack Co., VA (Ibid., p 162). An abstract reads: "Col. Edmund Scarburgh and Mr. Charles Scarburgh swore that they were present at Pungotege with Mrs. Ann Toft and Robert Risdon, Master of the catch Virginia Merchant also known as Providence

of Garney, which was fully loaded and bound for the sea. They witnessed the bill of loading signed by Risdon dated last 15 January and the settleing of all accounts between Mrs. Anne Toft and Riston, who also signed a discharge to Mrs. Toft and Edm. Scarburgh for wages paid to Risdon and a servant,

Risdon was discharged for all former accounts except for Ann Toft's interest in the catch and the obigation of going on the voyage and returning. Signed by Edm. Scarburgh and Cha. Scarburgh, who both made oath on 26 June 1666; recorded by Robt. Hutchinson."

On on 18 March 1666/67 in Accomack Co., VA 3800 acres were granted unto Anne Mrs. Toft due per rights (Ibid., p 24). She was granted 3800 acres of land for transporting 75 people: Jno. Annisly, Wm. Bankes, Anto. Bateman, Jno. Biram, William Blathurst, William Bois, Robt. Burnham, Jno. Byram, Tho.

The ages of four servants ages of Anne Mrs. Toft on 27 May 1667 (Ibid., p 33). The abstract reads: "Because they had come without indentures, four servants to Mrs. Anne Toft had their ages judged by the court: Patrick Easton, 13 years, Owin Murphy, 15 years, Garret supple, 17 years and John Murfee 15 years. The servants themselves acknowleged their ages. They were to serve till attaining the age of 24 years."

On 17 December 1667 in Accomack Co., VA Anne Mrs. Toft made a complaint against Thomas Bell (Ibid., p 72). The abstract states: "Mrs. Anne Toft complained against Thomas Bell, who had often run away, and most recently had been gone for three months and three weeks commiting felonies. He was

responsible for losing fifteen sheep, which along with his other trespasses, amounted to 5000 lbs tobacco. Ordered that Bell pay for damages and running away by extended time of service."

I read the "God Daughter Arcadia" part in the 'Virginia's Eastern Shore A History of Northhampton and Accomack County' by Ralph Whitelaw Vol II, page 1150. There is a whole chunk of this book that talks about Anne Toft, Edmond Scarborough and her (but he built it??) plantation, Gargaphia. (The court records link Anne and Edmond alot because of this plantation.) This book mentions the deeding of property to the 3 daughters, the deposition of Anne's age of 20 in 1663 in court, alot of the patents she received, the enterprises that Edmond had at Gargaphia, the court record about the man that attacked Edmond at the plantation, saying that 'he would work no more for Scarburg's whores and bastards' (page 1151). Lots of good information to support that the 3 daughters where his. When I visited Accomack Co, Library, I copied some old handwritten documentation about Anne Toft that linked the 2 also.

Pretty strong indication but not concrete proof. I'll continue to dig!!

Subject: Scarbrough/Toft/Dickerson

Bob asked me to send you a re-cap of where we seem to be on the Anne Toft connection. I know that some of the things I've sent him have been "undigested" - just "take a look at this and see if it gives you any ideas" sort of thing - and between that and attachments that cannot be opened, it must have been very confusing to follow.

Unfortunately, Anne Toft is probably not the easiest place to start. I gather that this has been an on-going debate, with one faction firmly committed to the identification of Col. Scarbrough as the father of Anne Toft's children, and the other opposed. The "opposition" seems to be based more upon moral and social considerations than upon an alternative candidate for paternity. The problem with this position, as I see it, is that the presumed societal consequences would have arisen regardless of who the father of the children was, unless the father happened to be Anne Toft's husband.

Anne Toft's three daughters were born during the 1660's and during that same period Anne was involved in various real estate ventures. In these ventures she acted as a feme sole; she, therefore, had no husband * (see below). See, for example, the deeds relating to the "Double Purchase" in which she held an interest with Randall Revell:

http://www.mdarchives.state.md.us/megafile/msa/speccol/sc2900/sc2908/000001/000054/html/am54--680.html

http://www.mdarchives.state.md.us/megafile/msa/speccol/sc2900/sc2908/000001/000054/html/am54--722.html

Years of legal research make me pretty confident on that part of the question, so I would conclude that Anne Toft was a "single mother" and that either she or her lover had enough power to protect her from being prosecuted for "fornication." Col. Scarbrough would seem to fit the bill in that regard, and according to at least two of the sources I have viewed, he was the owner of the plantation, Gargaphie, where she lived. (The name, incidentally, comes from Ovid's Metamorphoses, III, 180, and refers to the bower where Diana and her nymphs desported - sounds appropriate to me.) Add to this the fact that Mary Littleton Scarbrough was older than her husband (in her fifties by the time Anne Toft's children were born) and a not unfamiliar pattern emerges. The fact that Anne Toft did not marry until shortly after Col. Scarbrough's death, as well as the fact that for some reason Mary Littleton Scarbrough was refused letters of administration to her husband's estate (I do not know the circumstances, but it was certainly unusual) might also be significant.

Taking everything together, I think that the identification of Col Scarbrough as the father of Anne Toft's three daughters holds together quite well and I see that a number of researchers have reached the same conclusion, possibly for different reasons. Putting that with the rest of the Dickerson information, I come up with the attached tree. <<AncestryofScarboroughDickerson.doc>>

* feme sole: A common law concept derived from feudal Norman custom and prevalent through periods when marriage abridged women's rights, feme sole (Norman French meaning "single woman") referred to a woman who had never been married or who was divorced or widowed or to a woman whose legal subordination to her husband had been invalidated by a trust, a prenuptial agreement, or a judicial decision. In some instances by custom a woman could execute contracts independent of her husband as a feme sole trader, but generally legal action was required to establish a married woman's legal separateness from her husband. See also coverture.

 

coverture: An Anglo-American common law concept derived from feudal Norman custom, coverture referred to a woman's subordinate legal status during marriage. Prior to marriage a woman could freely execute a will, enter into contracts, sue or be sued in her own name, and sell or give away her real estate or personal property as she wished. Once she married, however, her legal existence as an individual was suspended under "marital unity," a legal fiction in which the husband and wife were considered a single entity: the husband. The husband exercised almost exclusive power and responsibility and rarely had to consult his wife to make decisions about property matters. Coverture rendered a woman unable to sue or be sued on her own behalf or to execute a will without her husband's consent and, unless some prior specific provision separating a woman's property from her husband's had been made, stripped a woman of control over real and personal property. Coverture was disassembled in the United States through legislation at the state level beginning in Mississippi in 1839 and continuing into the 1880s.

As reported in the story of A121, when Mistress Toft married Daniel Jenifer she had three daughters: Arcadia, Attalanta and Annabella Toft; in May 1672 she gave birth to a son, Daniel of St. Thomas Jenifer, who under the old law of primogeniture would inherit all of her former lands, together with the new ones which were then in the joint names of Daniel and Ann Jenifer. Perhaps it may be assumed that Ann became concerned now for the future of her daughters and so prevailed upon her husband to make a definte provision for them. At any rate, on July 15, 1672, Daniel and his wife Ann "lately called Ann Toft" recorded a document to the effect that 5,000 acres at Gingoteague were to be set aside for them; Daniel was to retain title

Until the said children shall arrive at their aforesaid severall and respective Ages of seventeen Yeares

Furthermore in case the said Arcadia, Attalanta and Annabella or any of them shall marry before the aforesaid age of seventeen Yeares is arrived without the consent good liking and approbacon of the said Daniell and Anne their Mother Then she or they soe offending shall have noe share nor interest in any of the premises given.

The indenture also set aside for each daughter specified cattle, silver, bed linen, pots, pewter, grain, etc., and a slave apiece.

The share of each daughter was not deeded to her as she became seventeen or married, but on September 9, 1686, Daniel and Anne Jennifer executed a long deed of gift to each of the daughters and their respective husbands, Arcadia and Thomas Welburne, Attalanta and John Osborne of Somerset, and Annabella and Francis Lee of London, formally giving each couple 1,666 acres along with the personalty promised. About five months later, Anne signed her last deed for the land with her husband, so she must have died shortly thereafter, and perhaps she had a premonition of the end and saw to it that the deeds were properly recorded before her death.

Apparently the tract had been surveyed for a division, because the deeds of 1686 gave specific courses and distances for each part, and from them it was possible to determine how the land had been divided. Each part was irregular in shape, but each extended from the water front to the back line of the tract, and from south to north they went to the Osbornes, the Lees, and the Welburnes. They will be reported in that order, and each will be traced from the seaboard westward...

Katherine Scarburgh was the daughter of Edmund Scarburgh and Hannah Butler; Katherine Pott was sister to Mary, Bridgett and Captain Francis Pott. They are two separate unrelated individuals. The controversy that you question has continued for hundreds of years. The most recent arguments coming from an excellent historical study of Northampton and Accomac Counties titled 'Virginia's Eastern Shore' written by Ralph T. Whitelaw in 1951 and republished in 1989.

Whitlaw offers several pages of valuable information concerning Edmund Scarburgh and within this information mentions that Edmund's wife was named Mary. He goes on to say that Mary was born in 1610 or 1611 and that she was older than Edmund. "For years many people have thought that she was a Mary Littleton, but that was never actually proven, and the present writer (Whitelaw) has a feeling that she may have been Mary Pott, [sic, no—cm] a sister of Captain Francis Pott, who in his will of 1656 mentioned sisters Mary, Katherine and Bridgett and their children. Bridgett is known to have married Dr. John Severne and Captain Stephen Charlton, but nothing definite was found about the others, and this writer (Whitelaw) has a theory that Katherine married Randall Revell, and Mary married Edmund Scarburgh, which might account for the later intimate relations between the two men." Whitelaw goes on to say that "To account for these close relations, some have thought that Revell had married a sister of Scarbugh, but no proof was found that Katherine was a Scarburgh.

So when you see the name Katherine Scarburgh/Pott it is an acknowledgement that Katherine Revell's maiden name to them remains unproven. Since Whitlaw published his book several additional researchers have produced significant information that offers proof on Katherine's maiden name. The Scarburgh family bible lists the marriage of Randall Revell to Katherine Scarburgh circa 1660.

Randall Revell circa 1613-1685 married Rebecca Nichols circa 1636. Edward Revell their only child was born in 1638. Randall and Rebecca moved from Northampton County, Virginia to St. Mary's County, Maryland and filed a patent for land. Later, Randall gave up this patent and returned to Virginia where he eventually settled in Pungoteaque and established his estate. Rebecca died at Pungoteaque.

Randall began a romance with Katherine Scarburgh and in late 1659 they married. Randall was one of three men offered a position as a land commissioner by Lord Cecil Calvert of Maryland to help settle the Eastern Shore of that province. Under this offer, two of the three men had to reside within the Maryland province. Randall accepted and relocated to what has become Somerset County, Maryland.

When Randall relocated he gave all of his Pungoteaque land holdings to his only son, Edward Revell.

Rebecca Nichols also had a son John by a previous marriage. Many researchers have stated that Randall and Rebecca also had two additional sons named John and Richard. This misconception began when Randall transported himself Rebecca, Edward, John Nichols and Richard Nevill, Randall's manservant to Maryland (Liber 1 Folio 65 and ABH Folio 79). Later when recording a land patent dated 27 Jul 1641 Randall gives 50 acres of land to Richard Nevill on 25 Aug 1641.Both men had been misconstrued to be Randall's sons. In fact John and Richard accompanied Randall back and forth across the Virginia and Maryland State line on several occasions. Randall returning to Northampton County in Virginia deeded some cattle to my son in law (stepson) John Nichols (April 1656) and later in August 1657 deeds cattle and horses to his only son Edward. John Nichols oral will leaves his land in Accomac County to his stepbrother and stepsister Randall Jr. and Ann Revell son and daughter of Randall and his second wife Katherine of Somerset County, Maryland.

Randall Revell (1A) born 1613 in England, but of French ancestry died 1685 in Somerset, Maryland. Will written 27 May 1685, probated 8 Mar 1686

Here's another cite for Tabitha Scarburgh, who was the wife of John Smart. It seems that she was married to Smart before 12 Jul 1653. See the third line of the below deed:

This leaves open the possibility that Edmund Scarburgh was married twice and his first wife is the mother of Charles. In December 1678 Charles gives his age as 35. Making his birth year about 1643. Mihalyka, Jean & Houston, William R. M., Colonial Residents of Virginia's Eastern Shore, (Baltimore MD: Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc. 1985), p 91. This scenario would also make Madam Tabitha Custis, daughter of Edmund Scarburgh the daughter of the unknown first wife, for in May 1693 Tabitha Custis stated she was 53 (circa 1640) and in November 1695 stated that she was 56 (circa 1639).

· p. 241, Col Charles Scarburgh was the naval officer and collector for the Eastern Shore from 1692 to 1698. He succeeded his farther in these posts, and his son Henry succeeded him!

· pp. 242-4, :

Background. The Assembly of 1685 was a stormy one. Jacobitism was in vogue in VA. James II, at first hailed by the colonists, soon made them angry with new taxes, his discouragement of factories which would allow them to be more independent of goods from England, forced a large number of military prisoners into VA. And then there were the grants to Culpepper and Arlington which showed the King had little regard for the colonists.

But the major issue was the belief that James II was trying to re-establish Catholicism. This was very alarming to Virginia's'Protestants, who were either Church of England or Non-Conformists. The clergy inflamed passions, and as early as 1686 the people of Eastern Shore were upset.

A number of appointees of the King were suspected of being papists, and 2 new members of the VA Council were alleged to have been selected because of their Catholicism. "This led Colonel Charles Scarburgh, of Accomac, a man as bold and fearless as his father before him and an aspirant to the office of Councillor, to exclaim in great anger in the presence of the Governor, Lord Howard, 'that his Majesty King James would wear out the Church of England, for that when there were any vacant offices, he supplied them with men of a different persuasion.' The indiscreet Scarburgh was at once arrested for such treasonable utterances, but not until he had voiced the sentiments of the colonists in general… He at once became the hero of the people… On October 18th, the Governor reported to the Council that he had removed Scarburgh from his various offices for treason to the crown and he was forthwith order to appear for trial…The prosecution, however…was more or less of a farce, for the temper of the people was not such as to permit of harm to their champion. Scarburgh was soon discharged and reinstated in his offices."

· pp. 245-7:

James II abdicated in 1688. "Now that Protestantism had conquered, Colonel Scarburgh was rewarded for his fearless and uncompromising resistance to the schemes of King James…and was appointed to the Council in 1691, remaining in that office until succeeded…in 1699."

1699, he was appointed by Gov. William Andros "collector by the honble Comrs of the Customs, Navcal Officer and Receiver of the Virginia duties."

1) Donaldson:

· Third wife was Elizabeth Bennett, d/o Gov Richard Bennett. First 2 wives were Katherine West Barlow (widow of Ralph Barlow), 2nd was her sister Ann West. No children by these two women.

· He and Elizabeth had six children: Ann, Bennett, Charles, Sarah, Tabitha, and Henry.

· Joined Bacon's Rebellion while his brother Edmund and sister Tabitha remained loyal to the King (Gov?). Tabitha was married to Major Gen John Custis, a loyalist.

4) Ames, Mears and Allied Lines

· One of nine "Gentlemen" named as trustees in the William and Mary College Charter

· His mother was unhappy with him in her old age. In a codicil, dtd 20 Oct 1691, to her will written in June 1691, she wrote: "Whereas I have in my will bequeathed to my son Charles Scarburgh his obligation for money due thereon to me, and for that he doeth in this my languishing sickness and weak condition neglect to perform that duty owing to me and incumbent upon him to perform, do therefore for the reason aforesaid disanull, deny and wholly obliterate in my said will all and every thing or things, gifts or other bequest unto or relating to the said Charles Scarburgh, my son, and that he do pay every sun or sums of money due me on the said obligation or otherwise due my said executors, out of which debt I only give to my said son Charles Scarburgh, as a legacy ten shillings, which I give him in full and to bar him of any further claim or right to any part of my estate."

5) FTM/WFT 4-2608 and 5-2549, From "John Wise, His Ancestors and Descendants":

· COL. CHARLES SCARBURGH was named after his uncle, Sir Charles Scarburgh. In 1652, when not over 17 years of age, he owned 3050 acres in one tract along Pungoteague Creek, besides other land, including a large amount in Maryland. He was a member of the House of Burgesses in 1688 and other years, and a member of the Colonial Council from 1691 until his death in 1703. In 1692 he was Councillor, Collector, and Naval Officer for the Eastern Shore, Commander-in- Chief of Accomack, and presiding Justice of that county. He married the daughter of Gov. Richard Bennett. His sons, Henry and Bennett, were prominent men in their day and held important offices in Accomack. COL. CHARLES SCARBURGH, unlike his brother, Capt. Edmund, did not remain loyal to Berkeley in 1676, but held a commission under Bacon. On March 3, 1677, he was tried by the King's Commissioners, and fined 40 pounds for "scandalous and mutinous words tending to the dishonor of the right honorable the Governor." At the session of March 16th, the Court sentenced one William Scarburgh to death. It would seem that CHARLES SCARBURGH had either brought to bear some powerful influence, which did not avail to save William Scarburgh, or that he had actually taken little part in the rebellion. As he was a very positive character, it is most probable that influence at Court saved him. His uncle, Col. Southey Littleton, son of COL. NATHANIEL LITTLETON, was a member of the Virginia Council at this time. Both Littleton and LT. COL. JOHN WEST, who married the sister of CHARLES SCARBURGH, were members of the court-martial which tried the rebels. With an uncle and a brother-in-law as members of the Court, and a great-uncle, after whom he was named, in the retinue of the King, CHARLES SCARBURGH was well protected against the wrath and vengeance of Governor Berkeley.

· In 1688 COL. CHARLES SCARBURGH, with his kinsman, Col. Edmund Bowman, was prosecuted for vehement public utterances and accusations against the Catholic proclivities of King James II.

· Capt. Edmund Scarburgh, second son of COL. EDMUND SCARBURGH, like his brother CHARLES, held high positions in Accomack County, including both civil and military offices. In 1677 he was justice of Accomack and a signatory party to the historic Accomack Memorial, which was submitted to Governor Berkeley after the collapse of Bacon's Rebellion.

· Thus it is seen that the family of Scarburgh in Accomack was allied, in the person of a son of the emigrant, with the noble Littleton family, through a daughter with the Wise family, and through granddaughters with the West and Custis families, and through the emigrant's grandson with a daughter of Governor Bennett. It is not, therefore, too much to say that the Scarburgh clan, already powerful, became through its alliances one of the most influential families in the Colony in the Seventeenth Century.

· From what has been written of the Scarburghs, it would hardly seem that JOHN WISE, the immigrant, would have been to take the hand of HANNAH SCARBURGH, unless he had possessed family and fortune, for his wife was not only the eldest daughter of CAPT. EDMUND SCARBURGH, the foremost man of his time in Accomack, but was the sister of SIR CHARLES SCARBURGH and COL. EDMUND SCARBURGH.

· From "Virginia's Eastern Shore":

Tract A54: CHARLES SCARBURGH was the eldest son of COLONEL EDMOND and MARY SCARBURGH (A17), and from later depositions giving his age he must have been born in 1643. About the time of the first patent (for 3,050 acres in 1652, or soon thereafter, CHARLES was in London for his education and did not take up residence on his home land, which he called Fairfield, until late in 1664, as nearly as can be determined from the records.

1654: William Whittington was made "Feoffee in trust and Guardyan to the Estate of CHARLES the Eldest sonne of LEIFTENANT COLLONEL EDMUND SCARBURGH." Among the assets at the time were "9 Hogsheads of Tobacco received for the Sale of a Tract of Land;" nothing more was found recorded about Whittington as acting in that capacity and apparently the colonel soon took over full management of his son's affairs.

Just when the event took place was not determined, but CHARLES married ELIZABETH, the daughter of RICHARD BENNETT, who was governor of the colony during the Commonwealth administration, and she survived him.

· 1677: "Itt being most Evident that CAPTAIN CHARLES SCARBURGH hath uttered Divers Scandalous and mutinous words Tending to the dishonor of the Right Honorable Governor, But the said CAPTAIN SCARBURGH Submitting himselfe and being Ready to Comply with what fine the Court shall Adjudge Against him, the Court have thought fitt and doe order that the Said CAPTAIN SCARBURGH be fined or Amerced Seventy pounds Sterling to be paid upon Demand to the Right Honorable Governor which the said CAPTAIN SCARBURGH Willingly Submitted to, and This day MAJOR JOHN WEST and CAPTAIN CHARLES SCARBURGH had granted them the Benefitt of his Most Sacred Majesties proclamacon and did take the oath of obedience to his majestie."

This sounds as if both WEST and SCARBURGH had been moral, if not active supporters of Nathaniel Bacon in the recent rebellion and were thus perhaps entitled to come in under the amnesty proclamation.

· 1688: "Upon Complaint of the Governor, MAJOR CHARLES SCARBURGH was ordered to appear at the next meeting to answer a charge of seditious language."

Perhaps his quick tongue had again gotten him in trouble, but the nature of his words and the outcome are unknown.

· 1691: In spite of these differences with the authorities, CHARLES seems to have been growing in mental stature all the time; in this year he was one of nine persons mentioned "to be presented for the takeing their Majesties grant of A Charter to erect a Colledge" (William and Mary); two years later he was mentioned as "Commander in Cheife, a Justice of the Peace, and President of the Court in Accomack County"; three years later still he was appointed to the Council; all of which indicates he had real ability when properly applied and he held about every appointive job available.

· 1691: MARY SCARBURGH, mother of CHARLES, added a codicil to her will:

"Whereas I MARY SCARBURGH have in this my above and within written will bequeathed to my son CHARLES SCARBURGH his obligation for money due thereon to me and for that he doeth in this my Languishing Sickness and weake Condicon neglect to performe that Duty owing to me and incumbent on him to performe doe therefore for the Reason aforesaid disannul deney and holey obliterate in my said will all and everything or things gifts or other bequests unto or relating to the said CHARLES SCARBURGH..."

Later, when his own end drew nigh, CHARLES must have taken this lesson to heart, as he said in his own will: "And for as much as I find by experience how undutifull Children are to their Mothers if they have any opportunities," and with that as a preamble, he went on to make definite and ample provision for his wife. MADAME ELIZABETH SCARBURGH did not remarry and lived until 1719.

· Drawing a conclusion from several references in the records, it seemed possible that the SCARBURGH home "Fairfield" had been at about A54C and a special search was made for indications of a graveyard in that vicinity. Two heavy stone slabs were found side by side in the middle of an alfalfa field, each being about seven feet by three feet in size and perhaps four inches thick. They are flush with the present ground and have been badly scatted by tractor lugs and other agricultural implements, but do not offer a single indication that they were ever inscribed. It is local tradition that they are Indian grave markers, but that does not make sense, as they are expensive imported stones. It seems reasonable to believe that CHARLES had ordered them from England at some unknown date to have them in readiness for the deaths of his wife and himself, but that no local stone mason was ever available to make the inscriptions.

It is possible that at some time CHARLES had had some serious difference with his father, as the name EDMUND never appeared among any of his descendants. His 3,050 acre plantation comprised somewhat more than the eastern half of what today is known as Slutkill Neck; there is a vague and scurrilous tradition to account for the name, but it does not have enough substance to justify a recording of it. In the records it was spelled variously Sleuthkill, Slutgill, etc., but the above name was the most common and is the one in use today, although occasionally it is spoken of as Prospect Neck.

· 1702: CHARLES SCARBURGH (wife ELIZABETH) left three sons and four daughters, to each of whom he bequeathed a large tract of land; to his son Henry he left his home plantation of 3,150 acres, although the widow ELIZABETH was to have the privilege of its use as long as she lived.

Children of CHARLES SCARBOROUGH and ELIZABETH BENNETT are:

23. i. MAJOR BENNETT15 SCARBOROUGH, b. Abt. 1656, Accomac Co., VA; d. Bet. 24 February 1733/34 - 07 May 1734, Accomack Co., VA.

24. ii. ANN SCARBOROUGH, b. Abt. 1660, VA; d. Bef. June 1719.

iii. SARAH SCARBOROUGH, b. Abt. 1663; d. Bef. 1729; m. WILLIAM BLACK, Bet. August 1701 - June 1719, Accomack Co., VA; b. Abt. 1679, Dumfries, Scotland; d. Bef. 07 March 1738/39, Accomack Co., VA.

Notes for SARAH SCARBOROUGH:

40 vii. Sarah Scarburgh was born in Accomack Co, VA circa 1683. Sarah died before 1728. She married Rev. William Black after 1700/1. William was born circa 1679 in Dumfries, Scotland. He married Margaret (-----) before 1728. William died 1738 at 59 years of age. William Black along with George "Kutler" were named trustees for Hugh Roberts' children in his will of 3 Nov 1720. Thomas Rose, age 33, left William Black a gold ring in his will of 2 Nov 1722. On 1 Nov 1723, William Black witnessed the will of Col. Tully Robinson. In his will, written 10 Jun 1728, William Black left his whole estate to his wife Margaret, who was also named executrix. Witnesses were Henry Bagwell, Delight Shield, William Nowell, William Haizlup, John Allen, John Bagwell, William Tazewell, Thomas Parramore (Acc Co Wills 1737-1743, p. 7). Evidently his first wife, Sarah Scarburgh, had died and he had remarried.

Sarah was named in her father's will 6 Aug 1701 in Accomack Co, VA. She was evidently unmarried at the time, as she was just called daughter Sarah.

Sarah was named in her mother's will 2 Jun 1719 in Accomack Co, VA. She was called daughter Sarah Black.

8. MATILDA14 SCARBOROUGH (EDMOND13, EDMUND12, HENRY11, HENRY10, JOHN9, HENRY8, HENRY7, JOHN6, JOHN5, NICHOLAS4 SCARDBURG, ROBERTE3 DE SCARDEBURG, HENRY2, ?1 SCARDEBURG) was born 1646 in Accomack Co., VA, and died 03 January 1720/21 in Accomack Co., VA. She married LT. COL. JOHN WEST Bet. 1660 - 1661 in Accomack Co., VA, son of ANTHONY WEST and ANN (BARLOW?). He was born 08 April 1638 in Worchester, England, and died 27 May 1703 in Nandua, Accomack Co., VA.

Notes for MATILDA SCARBOROUGH:

Matilda Scarburgh was born in Accomack Co, VA circa 1645. Matilda died 3 Jan 1720/21 in Accomack Co, VA, at 75 years of age. She married Lt. Col. John West circa 1660 in Accomack Co, VA. John was born 7 Apr 1638 in England. John was the son of Anthony West and Anne (-----). John died 27 May 1703 in Nandua, Acc Co, VA, at 65 years of age. John West was baptisted on 13 Apr 1638 in England (Some Descendants of Anthony West of Acc, VA). John West deposed 10 Nov 1663 that he was aged 25 years or thereabouts. On 23 Dec 1650 he had been put in possession of 1600 acres in Northampton County which included the Herle tract. He was a carpenter and shipbuilder by trade and served Accomack County as commissioner, 1662-63, justice, 1663-1703, sheriff, 1667, and as captain, major and lieutenant colonel of militia, 1655-1703. He held 5250 acres in Accomack County, 1683. A patent issued to John West, 20 Oct 1661, for 250 acres in Northampton County recites that the land was granted to Matilda Scarburgh, 31 Mar 1655, and due said West as marrying with the said Scarburgh. His widow held 3600 acres in Accomack County, 1704 (Adventurers of Purse and Person, p. 663). For more on the descendants of Lt. Col. John West and Matilda Scarburgh see "Ames, Mears and Allied Lines of Accomack County Virginia," by Lucy Ames Edwards, pp. 171-176. He was a boatright.

Matilda was named in her mother's will 14 Jun 1691 in Accomack Co, VA. Matilda was named in her husband's will 6 Feb 1702/03 in Accomack Co, VA. Matilda was named in her son's will 17 Jan 1708/09 in Accomack Co, VA. Matilda Scarburgh and Lt. Col. John West had 6 sons and 7 daughters. In 1704 Mrs. Matilda West, widow, refused to take the usual oath, being a Quaker. She must have been considered a desirable convert, because both her father and husband had been staunch adherents of the Church of England (Whitelaw, p. 653).

Family Bible Records

This last weekend visiting the Tennessee Historical Museum in Knoxville I came across the attached information within Jewel Scarborough Davis’s Southern Kith and Kin (Vol. III).

A copy of the reference pages concerns a reference to the family bible of a Mrs. S. P. Ward of Belle Haven, Virginia printed in England in 1725. The item attracting my attention records Col. Edmund

Scarborough III’s , his wife as Elizabeth Edwards and his son Edmund Scarborough IV , whose second wife is shown , was Anna Maria Jones daughter of Rev. Rowland Jones of Bruton Parish and great grandfather of Martha Dandridge. Ana Maria Jones was married four times, but had no Scarborough children.

As of this date I’m very interested in confirming Elizabeth Edwards as the wife of Col. Edmund Scarborough III.

My current information from Col. Edmund Scarborough III’s will uses the name Elizabeth but does not provide her family name. Should any of this item attract your attention, I’d be appreciative.

Sincerely,

Geo. Scarborough

-----

As far as I can tell, the idea that Elizabeth Edwards is the wife of Edmund is found on p 33-34 of Southern Kith and Kin where Jewel Davis Scarborough says:

"Eastern Shore: Scarborough

Col. Edmund Scarborough, 4th of the name in Virginia, died in 1753 and left a will in York County. He was a Burgess from Accomac, and son of Edmund Scarborough, third, and Elizabeth Edwards. He was married twice. First wife: Priscilla.

Issue:

Elizabeth, b July 14, 1714, d. Nov 14, 1777 m 1734, Col. Thomas Hall

Issue:

Margaret, Anna Maria, Jane and Elizabeth.

It is unclear to me what "above data" is from the Family Bible and whose Bible it was.

Notes for EDMOND SCARBOROUGH IV:

44 iii. Edmund Scarburgh the elder was born in Accomack Co, VA circa 1677. Edmund died Jun 1714 in Accomack Co, VA, at 36 years of age. Edmund was named in his grandmother's will 14 Jun 1691 in Accomack Co, VA. He was named as grandson Edmund Scarburgh (under 12), son of Edmund Scarburgh in the will of Mary Scarburgh.

Edmund was named in his father's will 21 May 1711 in Accomack Co, VA. He was named as the eldest son Edmund Scarburgh and given 832 acres out of my Neck of 2,000 acres surveyed for him my me, in the will of Col. Edmund Scarburgh.

He made a will 1 Oct 1713 in Accomack Co, VA. The words of the verbal will of Edmund Scarburgh late deceased, late of this County Accomack, spoken in the hearing of the evidenced hereunder named. I do desire that what I received of my father's estate given to me by my father's last will may be equally divided between my two brothers, Scarburgh & Mittchell. By Juke Johnson and John Teackle - Sworn to before Henry Scarburgh on 1 Oct 1713. (Note: His only 2 brothers were Edmund the younger and Mitchell.)

Edmund's will was probated 6 Jul 1714 in Accomack Co, VA. He was a Justice in Accomack County. He is referred to as Edmund Scarburgh (1st) because he had a younger brother also named Edmund, who is referred to as Edmund Scarburgh (2nd). "Their father left his land, previously surveyed and laid out by him, as follows: to his eldest son Edmund 832 acres which included the home part; to his second son Edmund 604 acres which were at the mouth of Craddock Creek; and to his son Mitchell 564 acres near the head of Craddock Creek. From two later records it seems evident that it was the elder Edmund who had died, for beside the 832 acres left to him by the will of his father, there was also bequeathed to him a still, and in 1715 the widow Elizabeth made an agreement with the surviving son Edmund in which was mentioned 'the still which he had received from the estate of his brother Edmund'; also in 1725 the living Edmund made a deed of gift to his son Edmund of 832 acres 'given by Edmund Scarburgh deceased to his (i.e. the son's) Uncle Edmund." Edmund (1st) died unmarried and without issue" (Whitelaw, pp. 619-620 - tract A17).

Notes for ANNABELLA TOFT:

Volume Two, page 1350, by Ralph T. Whitelaw (first published by the Virginia Historical Society in 1951; available from Picton Press, PO Box 250, Rockport, Maine 04856-0250; Telephone: 1-207-2366565; Fax: 1-207-236-6713; http://www.pictonpress.com) starts the entry for Tract A180, correlates with an inserted map showing all the tracts treated in the book, and which shows that tract in the northeastern part of Accomakc County, just below Worcester County and touching it at one point on the northern part of the tract and extending to the Atlantic Ocean. The present day town of Hornville is located on the norther eastern side of the tract. This is the Gargaphie Plantation of Anne Toft and her lover Colonel Edmund Scarborugh II. Here her three daughters (Attalanta Scarborough-Toft, Annabella Scarborough-Toft, Arcadia Scarborugh-Toft) by Colonel Edmund Scarborough II were born to her, as was her son Daniel of St. Thomas Jenifer from her marriage to Colonel Daniel Jenifer after the death of Colonel Scarborough II. It goes for eighteen pages and has a plethora of history on Anne Toft and her children. Some worthy excerpts are as follows:

1664 Patent to Colonel Edmund Scarburgh for 3,000 acres; this was the water front property shown on the patent map, and the western bounds perhaps were a continuation through the tract of the line which was the western bounds for A183. 1669 Edmund Scarburgh and Mary Scarburgh sold the land to Mistress Anne Toft for 9,101 pounds of Mevis Sugar in Cask and 708 pounds of Indigo. After the marriage of Mistress Toft to Daniel Jenifer, a joint patent was issued to them in 1672 for 5,000 acres to include the above and 2,000 acres of new land; in later transactions this new part usually was called swamp land.

Annabella Lee Part 1691 She, calling herself the widow of Francis Lee of London, sold her 1,666 acres to John Martial (Marshall), and shortly thereafter married him. 1721 An exchange of deeds brought to light an unusual situation; although she thought so, Annabella had not been a widow. By this year, both she and Francis Lee had passed on but they had left a daughter Rebecca who was the heir at law to Anabella's part and she was now the wife of Kendall Towles. They and Marshall reached an agreement for the division of the land; the Towles' were to have 250 acres of the original Scarburgh patent and 250 acres of the so-called swamp land; Marshall to keep the balance and formal deeds were exchanged to that effect.

(Elizabeth Marshall, daughter of Annabella Scarborough-Toft and John Marshall, moved to Coventry Parish, Pocomoke Hundred, on the Pocomoke River, today in western Worcester County, Maryland, on her marriage to Edmund Dickerson, Jr. - Colonial Families of the Eastern Shore, Volume 9, page 101, by Henry C.

>Concerning the information recently posted about Randall Revell Sr. and his son Randall Revell Jr. I offer the following:

>

>Randall Revell Jr. son of Randall and Katherine Revell of Somerset, Maryland did in fact have two wives. First wife was Sarah Ballard and they had three children as reported by Dr. Bill. Randall and Ballard died at an early age. After the passing of Sarah, Randall Jr.'s first wife, he married second, Rachael Hall also as reported by Dr. Burton and did in fact name their second son Randall. Randall and Rachel's first son, Charles was named for Rachel's father Charles Hall and their second son Randall was named for Randall Jrs. father, Randall senior. This naming sequence is reversed from the norm of the day and was most likely followed due to one son already being named "Randall". This naming sequence is not documented and is only my suspicion. Please note that both children named Randall were not alive at the same time.

>My research differs from Br. Bill at this point as I believe that Randall Revell senior and his first wife Rebecca (Nichols) only had one child, Edward Revell of Pungoteaque, Virginia. Many researchers have based their analysis that Randall and Rebecca had three children on the fact that several of Randall seniors claims for land patents listed John and Richard as his children. John was in fact John Nichols son of Rebecca and son-at-law (stepson) of Randall senior. Richard was actually Richard Nevil, Randall's man-servant. Randall gave 50 acres of land to Richard in 1644 after making claim for acreage for transporting John and Richard in Maryland.

>

>Randall Revell senior made several such trips across both Virginia and Maryland state lines before leaving Virginia and taking up residence in Somerset, Maryland in the early 1660s. Leaving Virginia Randall left all his Virginia properties to his son Edward who remained in Virginia.

>I remain extremely interested in all Eastern Shore "Revell" information and would be delighted to meet or exchange. I have attempted to transmit a Virginia Revell file of "Revell" information to Bill Leatherbury and Becky Miller and the GHOTES and it continues to be rejected. This file contains many footnotes listing all references
