DAVID BIRD died Henderson Co., Tenn., Jan. 27, 1859 in his 71st year; native of Orange Co., N.C.; moved to western district of Tenn. over 30 years ago; funeral held at New Hope on Decatuville Circuit. "A servant woman, whom Bro. Bird had raised from childhood and perhaps some forty years of age, took her seat near the head of her master, being feeble from affliction herself and lamented and bewailed her loss . . . that melted the hearts of those who saw and heard it, 'My master, my poor old master is gone. He never struck me a lick since I've been grown and never struck me a lick amiss in my raising. He was more like a father than a master to me.'"

 

On October 1, 1858 DAVID BIRD had executed his will which was probated in Henderson County, Feb. 1859, and JAMES W. BIRD qualified as co-executor, with REBECCA BIRD, widow; before the estate was finally settled JAMES W. BIRD died and JOHN L. READ and THOMAS P. BIRD were appointed administrators debonis and by the seventh clause of this will, they sold for $2200 some 736 1/2 acres, except for the dower of REBECCA BIRD which was to come out of this tract.

"A servant woman, whom Bro. Bird had raised from childhood and perhaps some forty years of age, took her seat near the head of her master, being feeble from affliction herself and lamented and bewailed her loss . . . that melted the hearts of those who saw and heard it, 'My master, my poor old master is gone. He never struck me a lick since I've been grown and never struck me a lick amiss in my raising. He was more like a father than a master to me.'"

 

On October 1, 1858 DAVID BIRD had executed his will which was probated in Henderson County, Feb. 1859, and JAMES W. BIRD qualified as co-executor, with REBECCA BIRD, widow; before the estate was finally settled JAMES W. BIRD died and JOHN L. READ and THOMAS P. BIRD were appointed administrators debonis and by the seventh clause of this will, they sold for $2200 some 736 1/2 acres, except for the dower of REBECCA BIRD which was to come out of this tract.

Hello Eileen Fowler Thrall,

 

I have been of the opinion that my Mary Ashford who married

James Bird at Old Swede's Church in New Castle County,

Delaware in 1745, was a child of Michael and Ann Ashford. The

Mary in the will of Michael Ashford seemed to have been quite

young, along with several other children, as I recall. Mary Ashford

and James Bird settled in the part of Orange County, NC, which

is now Alamance County. Just north of Alamance is Caswell

County, where a William Ashford also settled in the period

between 1750 and 1770. Also residing in Caswell County was

Nancy Ashford, who was wife of John Walker, Revolutionary

soldier who served as one of George Washington's

aides-de-campe.

 

The Ashfords owned land in Virginia which was sold by one of

the elder sons,(George?) of Michael and Ann Ashford, land

which was included in the holdings of George Washington in

making up his Mount Vernon Estate. It would appear that these

Ashford's, Walkers, and Birds were very much in the right places

to support a connecting link.

 

I am also a descendant of a John Graham who married one

daughter of Alexander Mebane, Frances, who lived in Chester

County, PA which is just adjacent to New Castle County. When

Frances died at an early age, John Graham married Mary Bird,

daughter of James and Mary Ashford Bird; several of John

Grahams daughters married into the John Walker family, which

also demonstrates further close connections.

 

Have you any different information for the fate of Michael and Ann

Ashford's daughter, Mary, as well as for William and Ann(Nancy)

Ashford?

 

Best regards,

 

John Fox

Will of William Browning

Will Book B, pages 18 & 19

Lowndes County, AL

 

 

The State of Alabama

Lowndes County

 

I, William Browning of the State and County aforementioned being of sound mind and memory but weak and feeble in body and health, do make publish and disclose this my last Will and Testament as follows, that is to say:

 

First: I direct that all my debts and personal expenses be paid as soon after my decease as possible and of the first money that shall come into the hands of my Executors herein after appointed. It is my will and desire and I direct these, my Negro men slaves named Jess, Aaron, and Henry, shall remain in the possession of my wife, Elizabeth, until my youngest daughter, Emily, shall have arrived at the age of sixteen years. The proceeds of the labor of said Negro Men Slaves, Jess, Aaron, and Henry, to be applied under the direction of my wife, Elizabeth and sons Albert & John to the support and education of my sons James, and Egbert, and my daughters Henrietta and Emily until they respectively become of age or marry. And at the time of the youngest becoming if age or marries, then it is my wish and will that said Negroes shall be equally divided or distributed between my wife Elizabeth and my children: Albert, Eliza, Julia, John, James, Egbert, Henrietta, and Emily, and I further direct that the residue o my estate both real and personal be valued and appraised by five judicious and discrete citizens for that purpose. To ______ appointed and by them to be equally distributed and divided between my wife Elizabeth and my children: Albert, Eliza, Julia, John, James, Egbert, Henrietta, and Emily subject to the following directions, that is to say:

 

First that my land lying on B___ and Panther Creeks known by the name of the Randal Track and also my land lying on Ash Creek be apportioned or allotted to my sons Albert, John, James, and Egbert at their fair valuation. And secondly I devise and direct that my Negro girl Hannah shall be allotted to my daughter, Julia at valuation. And thirdly I direct and desire that in making said distribution that the sum of Fifteen hundred dollars be deducted from the portion going to my son-in-law George Walker in right of his wife Eliza, he having already received that amount of her legacy from me as appears from his receipt of date with this my last Will and Testament. It is furthermore my desire and direction that the division or distribution be made as above with this exception, that is to say that my wife, Elizabeth, shall receive a child's part of the personal estate as above stated and also her dower for life Estate to one third of the lands agreeably to the laws of the state.

 

It is my further wish and desire and I do direct that the tract of land on which I now reside and also the quarter section of Big Swamp known as the Spratt place shall be and remain in the possession of my wife Elizabeth for her use and benefit and for the use and benefit o the land so long as my wife shall life, and at her death to be distributed equally among my children then living. Further, my wish and will that if my executors herein after appointed should obtain from Jesse Boone a title in fee simple for the N.W. ¼ of Section No. thirty-two township N. Fifteen and Range N. Fourteen, then I desire it to be distributed in the same manner as the Randal Tract to my sons: Albert, John, James, and Egbert at its fair valuation. But, should my Executors only obtain compensation for said quarter section of land in money, it is my wish that the sum be equally distributed amongst my wife and children.

 

Also it is my wish and desire and I enjoin it on my Executors that whenever a patent from the general land office is issued or as soon thereafter as possible, they shall make and execute to William Hudson of Lowndes County a deed of conveyance in Joe Simple for the East half o the South West quarter of Section N. Fifteen, Township N. Fourteen in Range Thirteen at being the land on which the said William Hudson laid a float that he obtained from my Testator. And I do hereby appoint my wife Elizabeth and my sons Albert and John my Executrix and Executors to this my last Will and Testament. In Witness whereof I, William Browning, the Testator, have to this my Will set my hand and seal this the twelfth day of May in the year our Lord one thousand eighteen and thirty one.

Birth and death dates in question. One source from DAR, vol 2, page 340, in 1972, states birth date 1770, death date 1832 which agrees with the tombstone in the Mt. Gilead Church cemetery.

 

Eliza was married to George Walker at the time of this will. Pamelia was deceased.

 

From "Genealogy of the Brownings in America from 1621 to 1908," by Edward Franklin Browning, A.M., page 462

 

"Married about 1798, in Georgia.

 

He had five children, namely:

Pamelia, b. 1800

Eliza, b, abt. 1802

Julia Ann, b. abt 1804

Henrietta, b. 1806

Emily, b. abt 1808

 

Died after 1834 in Alabama."

 

Mr. William Browning went to Thomas County, Georgia, probably in 1792, along with his brother, John Browning. He married there, and there his five children were born. He was a large planter, and in 1832 he moved over to Alabama, where he died after 1834."

 

Thomas County did not become a county until 1825. It was part of Greene County at that time. I have yet to find the marriage record for William.

 

From "Old Cahaba Land Office Records & Military Warrants, 1817-1853," compiled by Marilyn Davis Hahn, revised 1986:

 

Chapter One, Receivers Office in Milledgeville, GA, August 1817-November 1818, Book 300

Page 2: on Aug. 11, 1817, William Browning of Greene Co., GA purchased land in Township 16,

Range 19, Section 26 (this is probably in what is now Montgomer County, AL)

 

Chapter Two, Receivers Office at Cahaba, January 1819-March 1819, Ledger 302

Page 7: January 1819, William Browning, of Green Co., GA, and William Moon purchased land

at Township 16, Range 13, Section 36 (near White Hall, Lowndes County, AL)

 

Chapter Four, Receivers Ledger at Cahaba Land Office, March 1819 to Sept. 1819, Book 301

Page 74: on May 6, 1831, William Browning of Lowndes Co. purchased land in Township 15,

Range 13, Section 10 (a bit south and west of the property purchased near

White Hall, Lowndes County, AL)

 

William Browning, along with his brother, John, were the administrators of their father, John's estate in Greene Co., GA. In the estate papers, William is called Major William Browning. Makes me wonder if his birth year is correct or if I have the correct William. Still, all the evidence I have on William of Lowndes County points to Greene County, GA as his place of origin prior to coming to Lowndes County, AL

He and the children named in the EB Browning book are all there in the records - marriage, census, land and deed, and cemetery records. I am sure this is the correct William. I wonder where EB Browning got his information?

There can be no doubt about whom I mean by Emily Browning, and if it should turn out that she has a middle name and any advantage is taken of her on that account to cut her of from enjoining what little I have left her, I hope that whoever takes such advantage will meet with that contempt indignation which his or her baseness will deserve.

Died after 1834 in Alabama."

 

Mr. William Browning went to Thomas County, Georgia, probably in 1792, along with his brother, John Browning. He married there, and there his five children were born. He was a large planter, and in 1832 he moved over to Alabama, where he died after 1834."

 

Thomas County did not become a county until 1825. It was part of Greene County at that time. I have yet to find the marriage record for William.

Chapter Four, Receivers Ledger at Cahaba Land Office, March 1819 to Sept. 1819, Book 301

Page 74: on May 6, 1831, William Browning of Lowndes Co. purchased land in Township 15,

Range 13, Section 10 (a bit south and west of the property purchased near

White Hall, Lowndes County, AL)

 

William Browning, along with his brother, John, were the administrators of their father, John's estate in Greene Co., GA. In the estate papers, William is called Major William Browning. Makes me wonder if his birth year is correct or if I have the correct William. Still, all the evidence I have on William of Lowndes County points to Greene County, GA as his place of origin prior to coming to Lowndes County, AL

He and the children named in the EB Browning book are all there in the records - marriage, census, land and deed, and cemetery records. I am sure this is the correct William. I wonder where EB Browning got his information?

I, William Browning of the State and County aforementioned being of sound mind and memory but weak and feeble in body and health, do make publish and disclose this my last Will and Testament as follows, that is to say:

 

First: I direct that all my debts and personal expenses be paid as soon after my decease as possible and of the first money that shall come into the hands of my Executors herein after appointed. It is my will and desire and I direct these, my Negro men slaves named Jess, Aaron, and Henry, shall remain in the possession of my wife, Elizabeth, until my youngest daughter, Emily, shall have arrived at the age of sixteen years. The proceeds of the labor of said Negro Men Slaves, Jess, Aaron, and Henry, to be applied under the direction of my wife, Elizabeth and sons Albert & John to the support and education of my sons James, and Egbert, and my daughters Henrietta and Emily until they respectively become of age or marry. And at the time of the youngest becoming if age or marries, then it is my wish and will that said Negroes shall be equally divided or distributed between my wife Elizabeth and my children: Albert, Eliza, Julia, John, James, Egbert, Henrietta, and Emily, and I further direct that the residue o my estate both real and personal be valued and appraised by five judicious and discrete citizens for that purpose. To ______ appointed and by them to be equally distributed and divided between my wife Elizabeth and my children: Albert, Eliza, Julia, John, James, Egbert, Henrietta, and Emily subject to the following directions, that is to say:

 

First that my land lying on B___ and Panther Creeks known by the name of the Randal Track and also my land lying on Ash Creek be apportioned or allotted to my sons Albert, John, James, and Egbert at their fair valuation. And secondly I devise and direct that my Negro girl Hannah shall be allotted to my daughter, Julia at valuation. And thirdly I direct and desire that in making said distribution that the sum of Fifteen hundred dollars be deducted from the portion going to my son-in-law George Walker in right of his wife Eliza, he having already received that amount of her legacy from me as appears from his receipt of date with this my last Will and Testament. It is furthermore my desire and direction that the division or distribution be made as above with this exception, that is to say that my wife, Elizabeth, shall receive a child's part of the personal estate as above stated and also her dower for life Estate to one third of the lands agreeably to the laws of the state.

 

It is my further wish and desire and I do direct that the tract of land on which I now reside and also the quarter section of Big Swamp known as the Spratt place shall be and remain in the possession of my wife Elizabeth for her use and benefit and for the use and benefit o the land so long as my wife shall life, and at her death to be distributed equally among my children then living. Further, my wish and will that if my executors herein after appointed should obtain from Jesse Boone a title in fee simple for the N.W. ¼ of Section No. thirty-two township N. Fifteen and Range N. Fourteen, then I desire it to be distributed in the same manner as the Randal Tract to my sons: Albert, John, James, and Egbert at its fair valuation. But, should my Executors only obtain compensation for said quarter section of land in money, it is my wish that the sum be equally distributed amongst my wife and children.

 

Also it is my wish and desire and I enjoin it on my Executors that whenever a patent from the general land office is issued or as soon thereafter as possible, they shall make and execute to William Hudson of Lowndes County a deed of conveyance in Joe Simple for the East half o the South West quarter of Section N. Fifteen, Township N. Fourteen in Range Thirteen at being the land on which the said William Hudson laid a float that he obtained from my Testator. And I do hereby appoint my wife Elizabeth and my sons Albert and John my Executrix and Executors to this my last Will and Testament.

Mr. William Browning went to Thomas County, Georgia, probably in 1792, along with his brother, John Browning. He married there, and there his five children were born. He was a large planter, and in 1832 he moved over to Alabama, where he died after 1834."

 

Thomas County did not become a county until 1825. It was part of Greene County at that time. I have yet to find the marriage record for William.

Range 13, Section 10 (a bit south and west of the property purchased near

White Hall, Lowndes County, AL)

 

William Browning, along with his brother, John, were the administrators of their father, John's estate in Greene Co., GA. In the estate papers, William is called Major William Browning. Makes me wonder if his birth year is correct or if I have the correct William. Still, all the evidence I have on William of Lowndes County points to Greene County, GA as his place of origin prior to coming to Lowndes County, AL

He and the children named in the EB Browning book are all there in the records - marriage, census, land and deed, and cemetery records. I am sure this is the correct William. I wonder where EB Browning got his information?

I, William Browning of the State and County aforementioned being of sound mind and memory but weak and feeble in body and health, do make publish and disclose this my last Will and Testament as follows, that is to say:

 

First: I direct that all my debts and personal expenses be paid as soon after my decease as possible and of the first money that shall come into the hands of my Executors herein after appointed. It is my will and desire and I direct these, my Negro men slaves named Jess, Aaron, and Henry, shall remain in the possession of my wife, Elizabeth, until my youngest daughter, Emily, shall have arrived at the age of sixteen years. The proceeds of the labor of said Negro Men Slaves, Jess, Aaron, and Henry, to be applied under the direction of my wife, Elizabeth and sons Albert & John to the support and education of my sons James, and Egbert, and my daughters Henrietta and Emily until they respectively become of age or marry. And at the time of the youngest becoming if age or marries, then it is my wish and will that said Negroes shall be equally divided or distributed between my wife Elizabeth and my children: Albert, Eliza, Julia, John, James, Egbert, Henrietta, and Emily, and I further direct that the residue o my estate both real and personal be valued and appraised by five judicious and discrete citizens for that purpose. To ______ appointed and by them to be equally distributed and divided between my wife Elizabeth and my children: Albert, Eliza, Julia, John, James, Egbert, Henrietta, and Emily subject to the following directions, that is to say:

 

First that my land lying on B___ and Panther Creeks known by the name of the Randal Track and also my land lying on Ash Creek be apportioned or allotted to my sons Albert, John, James, and Egbert at their fair valuation. And secondly I devise and direct that my Negro girl Hannah shall be allotted to my daughter, Julia at valuation. And thirdly I direct and desire that in making said distribution that the sum of Fifteen hundred dollars be deducted from the portion going to my son-in-law George Walker in right of his wife Eliza, he having already received that amount of her legacy from me as appears from his receipt of date with this my last Will and Testament. It is furthermore my desire and direction that the division or distribution be made as above with this exception, that is to say that my wife, Elizabeth, shall receive a child's part of the personal estate as above stated and also her dower for life Estate to one third of the lands agreeably to the laws of the state.

 

It is my further wish and desire and I do direct that the tract of land on which I now reside and also the quarter section of Big Swamp known as the Spratt place shall be and remain in the possession of my wife Elizabeth for her use and benefit and for the use and benefit o the land so long as my wife shall life, and at her death to be distributed equally among my children then living. Further, my wish and will that if my executors herein after appointed should obtain from Jesse Boone a title in fee simple for the N.W. ¼ of Section No. thirty-two township N. Fifteen and Range N. Fourteen, then I desire it to be distributed in the same manner as the Randal Tract to my sons: Albert, John, James, and Egbert at its fair valuation. But, should my Executors only obtain compensation for said quarter section of land in money, it is my wish that the sum be equally distributed amongst my wife and children.

 

Also it is my wish and desire and I enjoin it on my Executors that whenever a patent from the general land office is issued or as soon thereafter as possible, they shall make and execute to William Hudson of Lowndes County a deed of conveyance in Joe Simple for the East half o the South West quarter of Section N. Fifteen, Township N. Fourteen in Range Thirteen at being the land on which the said William Hudson laid a float that he obtained from my Testator. And I do hereby appoint my wife Elizabeth and my sons Albert and John my Executrix and Executors to this my last Will and Testament.

Pamelia, b. 1800

Eliza, b, abt. 1802

Julia Ann, b. abt 1804

Henrietta, b. 1806

Emily, b. abt 1808

 

Died after 1834 in Alabama."

 

Mr. William Browning went to Thomas County, Georgia, probably in 1792, along with his brother, John Browning. He married there, and there his five children were born. He was a large planter, and in 1832 he moved over to Alabama, where he died after 1834."

 

Thomas County did not become a county until 1825. It was part of Greene County at that time. I have yet to find the marriage record for William.

 

From "Old Cahaba Land Office Records & Military Warrants, 1817-1853," compiled by Marilyn Davis Hahn, revised 1986:

 

Chapter One, Receivers Office in Milledgeville, GA, August 1817-November 1818, Book 300

Page 2: on Aug. 11, 1817, William Browning of Greene Co., GA purchased land in Township 16,

Range 19, Section 26 (this is probably in what is now Montgomer County, AL)

 

Chapter Two, Receivers Office at Cahaba, January 1819-March 1819, Ledger 302

Page 7: January 1819, William Browning, of Green Co., GA, and William Moon purchased land

at Township 16, Range 13, Section 36 (near White Hall, Lowndes County, AL)

 

Chapter Four, Receivers Ledger at Cahaba Land Office, March 1819 to Sept. 1819, Book 301

Page 74: on May 6, 1831, William Browning of Lowndes Co. purchased land in Township 15,

Range 13, Section 10 (a bit south and west of the property purchased near

White Hall, Lowndes County, AL)

 

William Browning, along with his brother, John, were the administrators of their father, John's estate in Greene Co., GA. In the estate papers, William is called Major William Browning. Makes me wonder if his birth year is correct or if I have the correct William. Still, all the evidence I have on William of Lowndes County points to Greene County, GA as his place of origin prior to coming to Lowndes County, AL

He and the children named in the EB Browning book are all there in the records - marriage, census, land and deed, and cemetery records. I am sure this is the correct William. I wonder where EB Browning got his information?

I, John F. Browning, of Lowndes County, Alabama, being now in Albemarle County, Virginia, do make this my last will and testament.

 

I give and bequeath my rifle gun to my friend Reuben Mundy of Lowndes County, Alabama.

 

I give and bequeath all my books to my brother James M. Browning.

 

I give and bequeath all the rest of my estate o property, real and personal including my interest in lands in the aforesaid Lowndes County and all other estate, right and interests to which I am or at my death may be entitled to be equally divided between my said brother James and my sister Emily Browning of the same County.

 

I appoint James M. Browning Executor of this my Will and I desire that he may not be required to give security for the execution of that trust.

 

In witness whereof, I have hereunto put my hand and seal this 28th day of July eighteen hundred and thirty eight.

I believe that my sister Emily’s full name is Emily E. Browning, but James appeared so certain that she had not a middle name that I was _____ to leave the E out. There can be no doubt about whom I mean by Emily Browning, and if it should turn out that she has a middle name and any advantage is taken of her on that account to cut her of from enjoining what little I have left her, I hope that whoever takes such advantage will meet with that contempt indignation which his or her baseness will deserve.

General Notes:

[byrd tree.FTW]

 

It is possible Thomas was married previously to the daughter of John Stalcup (an early wealthy founder of Delaware) and that he and Sarah were married in 1710-11 and that Empson was his first child with Sarah.

 

Also in Thomas Bird's 1726 will he left his homeplace to Empson Bird, making it seem likely he'd already given his older sons their land (probably from his dead first wife's estate). Just something to think about.

WILLIAM PENN - A CLOSE FRIEND

"William Penn, with his intimate friend Andrew JOB, a man of education and influence, took a united stand in favor of the subject. Many Quaker leaders, who had been Penn's companions in England, sympathized with Penn and Job. Loaded with provisions and equipment, they proceeded on horseback to the disputed territory. Other than Penn and Job there was William Brown, James Brown, Ebenezer Empson, Cornelius Empson, Joel Baily, James Cooper, John Richardson, Edward Beeson, John Churchman, and Henry Reynolds.

 

They found a beautifully rolling country that was moderately watered with small streams. They knew the soil was fertile for there was a dense growth of hickory, oak, and chestnut. Penn selected a spot for the Meeting House.

 

The peace-loving Quakers decided upon a way to thwart Baltimore; they, themselves, would settle and survey the tract, which was named Nottingham."

Partly from Futhey and Cope, History of Chester County, at page 195ff:

 

November 14, 1701, Cornelius Empson for himself and several others presented a petition to the Commissioners of Property at Philadelphia proposing to make a settlement "on a tract of land about half way between Delaware and Susquehannah, or nearer the latter, being about 24 miles distant from New Castle, on Octorara river, in case they may have a grant of 20,000 acres in the said place". On March 1, 1702 [new style] a warrant for land was issued for land "beginning at the Northern Barrens between the [main branch of the Northeast river and the Octorara Creek] and bounding it to the southward with an east and west line parallel as near as may be to the line of the Province, and northward next the Barrens with a line also parallel to the south bounds, and in the said tract run 18 several divisions, each of 1000 acres."

The tract was surveyed seven and one half miles west of the northeast corner of Maryland and extending westward thence to the Octorara Creek about ten miles. The south line was nearly straight but the north line had offsets to include good land and leave out the "barrens." It was about three miles north to south at the widest part.

Early purchasers were John Guest, Edward Beeson, Henry Reynolds, **John Richardson,** Cornelius Empson, Ebenezer Empson, Joel Baily, James Cooper, James Brown, Randal Janney, John Churchman, William Brown, Robert Dutton, Samuel Littler, Andrew Job, and John Bales (or Beals).

The large tract is said to have received the name Nottingham when first laid out, and it was doubtless so called in remembrance of the town or county of Nottingham in England. It was supposed all to be in Pennsylvania, but when the [Mason Dixon line was later drawn] a great part of the tract fell into Maryland. "Owing, no doubt, to the variation of the compass, the lines, which were intended to be parallel to the Maryland line, run a little south in going westward." The land north of this tract was described as "back of Nottingham" and was subsequently taken up in various sized and mostly irregular tracts by settlers, and was at length included in the township of Nottingham. The early surveys were for a long time known by the distinctive appellation of "Nottingham Lotts."

In 1788 petitions were filed with the state legislatures of Pennsylvania and Maryland to confirm the ownership of tracts which might have crossed into neighboring jurisdictions.

Since that time, the present Borough of Oxford, the township of Londonderry, and other municipalities have been formed from the Nottingham tract, and Nottingham itself has been split into East and West Nottingham Townships, as well as Elk Township.

For everyone interested in early Chester County history, a very helpful book with maps of interest is Lemon, James T., The Best Poor Man's Country, (New York: 1972).

 

Cornelius Empson was a Quaker who left Yorkshire for the American colonies in 1684. He was very successful owning substantial land holdings and becoming a JP and Judge in Newcastle Delaware. A great deal is known about him and his descendants.

WILLIAM PENN - A CLOSE FRIEND

"William Penn, with his intimate friend Andrew JOB, a man of education and influence, took a united stand in favor of the subject. Many Quaker leaders, who had been Penn's companions in England, sympathized with Penn and Job. Loaded with provisions and equipment, they proceeded on horseback to the disputed territory. Other than Penn and Job there was William Brown, James Brown, Ebenezer Empson, Cornelius Empson, Joel Baily, James Cooper, John Richardson, Edward Beeson, John Churchman, and Henry Reynolds.

 

They found a beautifully rolling country that was moderately watered with small streams. They knew the soil was fertile for there was a dense growth of hickory, oak, and chestnut. Penn selected a spot for the Meeting House.

 

The peace-loving Quakers decided upon a way to thwart Baltimore; they, themselves, would settle and survey the tract, which was named Nottingham."

The large tract is said to have received the name Nottingham when first laid out, and it was doubtless so called in remembrance of the town or county of Nottingham in England. It was supposed all to be in Pennsylvania, but when the [Mason Dixon line was later drawn] a great part of the tract fell into Maryland. "Owing, no doubt, to the variation of the compass, the lines, which were intended to be parallel to the Maryland line, run a little south in going westward." The land north of this tract was described as "back of Nottingham" and was subsequently taken up in various sized and mostly irregular tracts by settlers, and was at length included in the township of Nottingham. The early surveys were for a long time known by the distinctive appellation of "Nottingham Lotts."

In 1788 petitions were filed with the state legislatures of Pennsylvania and Maryland to confirm the ownership of tracts which might have crossed into neighboring jurisdictions.

Since that time, the present Borough of Oxford, the township of Londonderry, and other municipalities have been formed from the Nottingham tract, and Nottingham itself has been split into East and West Nottingham Townships, as well as Elk Township.

For everyone interested in early Chester County history, a very helpful book with maps of interest is Lemon, James T., The Best Poor Man's Country, (New York: 1972).

 

Cornelius Empson was a Quaker who left Yorkshire for the American colonies in 1684. He was very successful owning substantial land holdings and becoming a JP and Judge in Newcastle Delaware. A great deal is known about him and his descendants.

WILLIAM PENN - A CLOSE FRIEND

"William Penn, with his intimate friend Andrew JOB, a man of education and influence, took a united stand in favor of the subject. Many Quaker leaders, who had been Penn's companions in England, sympathized with Penn and Job. Loaded with provisions and equipment, they proceeded on horseback to the disputed territory. Other than Penn and Job there was William Brown, James Brown, Ebenezer Empson, Cornelius Empson, Joel Baily, James Cooper, John Richardson, Edward Beeson, John Churchman, and Henry Reynolds.

 

They found a beautifully rolling country that was moderately watered with small streams. They knew the soil was fertile for there was a dense growth of hickory, oak, and chestnut. Penn selected a spot for the Meeting House.

 

The peace-loving Quakers decided upon a way to thwart Baltimore; they, themselves, would settle and survey the tract, which was named Nottingham."

Partly from Futhey and Cope, History of Chester County, at page 195ff:

 

November 14, 1701, Cornelius Empson for himself and several others presented a petition to the Commissioners of Property at Philadelphia proposing to make a settlement "on a tract of land about half way between Delaware and Susquehannah, or nearer the latter, being about 24 miles distant from New Castle, on Octorara river, in case they may have a grant of 20,000 acres in the said place". On March 1, 1702 [new style] a warrant for land was issued for land "beginning at the Northern Barrens between the [main branch of the Northeast river and the Octorara Creek] and bounding it to the southward with an east and west line parallel as near as may be to the line of the Province, and northward next the Barrens with a line also parallel to the south bounds, and in the said tract run 18 several divisions, each of 1000 acres."

The tract was surveyed seven and one half miles west of the northeast corner of Maryland and extending westward thence to the Octorara Creek about ten miles. The south line was nearly straight but the north line had offsets to include good land and leave out the "barrens." It was about three miles north to south at the widest part.

Early purchasers were John Guest, Edward Beeson, Henry Reynolds, **John Richardson,** Cornelius Empson, Ebenezer Empson, Joel Baily, James Cooper, James Brown, Randal Janney, John Churchman, William Brown, Robert Dutton, Samuel Littler, Andrew Job, and John Bales (or Beals).

The large tract is said to have received the name Nottingham when first laid out, and it was doubtless so called in remembrance of the town or county of Nottingham in England. It was supposed all to be in Pennsylvania, but when the [Mason Dixon line was later drawn] a great part of the tract fell into Maryland.

Notes for Robert Bulkeley:

General Notes:

[byrd tree.FTW]

 

Robert, second son and heir of William de Bulkeley, moved to Oteworth, Davenham, England about 13-miles NW of Bulkeley. He did not receive any of the lands in and around Bulkeley, but rather the manor of Eaton in Davenham, Cheshire, as well as lands transferred to him by his older brother William in 1316-17. By this time "Bulkeley" has become a surname, no longer simply a geographical designation. Robert is ancestor of Bulkeleys of Eaton, England; Bulkeleys of Cheadle, Staffordshire, England; and Beaumaris on the Island of Angelsey at the NW tip of Wales.
