Bryan Stott was a large landowner and prominent citizen in Lancaster Co. Virginia. His wife is believed to be Mary Shipp, daughter or William Shipp. Brian Stott was a Justice of Lancaster Co., Va. and member of a commission which formed Middlesex Co. out of the southern portion of Lancaster in 1673.  James O’Brien, Our Colonial Ancesters, Gateway Press, Inc, Baltimore, 1988, p. 121. Brian Stott's name appeared variously in records as Bryan, Brian, and Bryant Stott. 

Bryan Stott is mentioned in the Will of Thomas Wright. William Montgomery Sweeny, Wills of Rappahannock County Virginia, 1656-1692, Southern Historical Press, Greenville, SC (reprint), p. 18.  In the will, Thomas Wright gives one stone colt to the daughters of Brian Stott. Brian Stott also signed the will as a witness and stated that he was 45 years old or thereabouts placing the year of his birth about 1627, most likely in England. The will of Thomas Wright also mentions his sons-in-law Thomas and Robert Bryant/Bryan. Interestingly, Bryan Stott also mentions Brian Phillips and Daniel Bryan in his own will. Lancaster Co., Virginia Will Book 8, p. 119. This raises the possibility that the surname of his mother was Bryan or Brian.

Prior to 17 April 1661 Bryan Stott and his brother Thomas Stott purchased 600 acres of land on the southeast side of Morattico River (creek) from Alex Porter. (Id., p. 459).  The land was orignally granted to Lambert Lambethson and Richard Hattan on 14 Oct. 1652 and after severarl sales assigned to Alexander Porter. On 17 April 1661, the brothers divided the land between themselves with each brother receiving 300 acres. Lancaster Co. Deed Book 2, pp. 214;   Cavaliers and Pioneers. Abstracts of Virginia Land Patents and Grants, 1623-1666, Vol. I, p. 459.

Bryan Stott received a patent for 800 acres in Lancaster Co. on 10 July 1663 for transporting 16 persons Cavaliers and Pioneers. Abstracts of Virginia Land Patents and Grants, 1623-1666, Vol. I, p. 448. On 24 Aug.1664, he received an additional 50 acres adjoining his previous patent. Id., p. 458.

Brian Stott's will was recorded on March 14, 1704/5.  In his will, Brian Stott gave land to his sons James, Bryan/Brian and John, his son-in-law John Potts, and his grandson Nathaniel Stott. James received the 300 acres of land Bryan acquired by dividing the 600 acres parcel he owned with his brother, Thomas. His son Bryan/Brian received 200 acres out of the 850 patented by Bryan Stott and grandson Nathaniel, son of John Stott, received another 50 acress including the dwelling home along the creek side. Son John received the remainder of the 850 acre parcel.  Son-in-law John Potts, husband of Mary Stott, received the neck of land on which he now lives for his lifetime. He left his "wearing clothes" to son James. Son Bryan Stott, Daughter Mary Pullen, and daughter-in-law Mary Stott each got 12 pence each. Ann Potts, wife of John, got one cow and calf.  Thee remainder of the estate, real and personal, went to his son John whom he named as executor. Lancaster Co., Virginia Will Book 8, p. 119.

"The Washington Ancestry: and Records of the McClain, Johnson, and Forty Other Colonial American Families,"  Chapter:  The Wrights of London, Virginia, and North Carolina describes the life of Richard Wright:

“Mr. RICHARD WRIGHT was born, according to his deposition made on August 20, 1655, in England in the year 1633.    He died in Virginia at the age of thirty.   Of his eight or nine years of independence, nearly all were passed in Virginia.  Such American records of him as remain convey the impression of his having been a typical Londoner of his time - eager for adventure, self-reliant, and imbued with the amazing self-confidence characteristic of young Englishmen.  Executive ability is t5he trait chiefly suggested by these Virginia records.  As he designated himself "of London," it is an unavoidable inference that the "Pool of London" with its fleet of ships bound to Virginia was a sight common to his eyes.  He was not lacking in commercial training, and he certainly became proficient in navigation.

Tobacco was the magnet that drew him overseas.   He exemplified the fact that "of all the European people in those times, the English possessed in the most marked degree the bold and intrepid spirit which would move them to leave their native soil behind, and cross many thousand miles of sea, and also the patient and calculating spirit which would enable them, when once fixed in their settlement, to make the most of the advantages."    

The first American record now extant of Richard Wright indicates that he was an attractive and pleasing young gentleman  - an arrival from London whose personality cause a feminine flutter.  This fact is clearly reflected in the record of the case of Alice Atkinson of Northumberland, who had conceived a great fancy for him, and had pursued her quest so much to his displeasure as to cause him to take peremptory action.  She, jealous of a rival, made the mistake of misrepresenting him, doubtless in the hope of affecting the attachment which Mistress Anne Mottrom was forming for the favored newcomer.  While there is no record known, naming the ship in which he came to Virginia, or giving the date of arrival, it is evident that he arrived in the spring of 1655, not very many weeks before the death of colonel Mottrom; and it is easy to believe that he arrived in the ship William, in which he later appears of record as having some interest.   His arrival in Virginia was opportune for the Mottrom family.   The mantle of the father, Colonel John Mottrom, upon his death, immediately fell upon the shoulders of Richard Wright.  He doubtless became the guide, counselor, and friend" of the children.  He made the Mottrom house his domicile soon after his arrival in America; and his attachment to the Mottrom's led to his marriage to one of the daughters within a year, if indeed he was not betrothed to her before her father's demise.   The marriages made by all of the Mottrom children attest the high social position of this family in Virginia.  In almost nothing, were the gentle families of England more exacting that in the fitness of the marriages of their children.”

Richard died at the age of 30.    Very sad, that he died so young, and to think of what he might have accomplished had he lived longer.

A Nathaniel Page and William Page took the oath of allegiance in 1778 in Goshen District in Granville Co., NC. Walter Clark, State Records of North Carolina, Vol. 11, p 168-179. It is not proven whether this Nathaniel Page is the same person, but I think it is likely.

Nathaniel Page appears on the Caswell Co.tax lists in 1782 and appears every year until 1796. In 1791 he is listed as owning 200 acres of land. He is listed as owning 100 acres in 1792 - 1794. In 1795, he is listed without any land, but from deed records we know that he owned at least 100 acres. In 1796 he is listed as owning 100 acres and in 1797 he is listed as owning 120 acres.

The deed records do not match up exactly with the tax records. This may be attributable to errors in the tax records. According to deed records, Nathaniel's first land purchase was on January 25, 1793. Natheniel Page and William Adkins, Sen., bought 100 acres on Moon's Creek adjacent Somers and Dixon from David Pendergrass. (Deed Book H, p. 117). Nathaniel Page and William Page eventually sold this piece of property to William Page, Jr. on Nov. 18, 1798 (Deed Book K., p. 346). Nathaniel also purchased 20 acres on waters of Moon Creek adjacent from Benjamin Ransom for 10 pounds (Deed Book K, p. 20). Nathaniel Page also sold this property to William Page, Jr. on Nov. 18, 1798. (Deed Book K., p. 347).

Nathaniel Page does not appear in the 1800 census and I presume that he is deceased by this date.

A Nathaniel Page appears in the North Carolina Revolutionary War Army Accounts. (Mars ID 13.30.43199).

Nathaniel Page of Caroline County

Nathaniel PAGE and Hannah ? first were found living in Amelia Co., VA from ca. 1757 (when Nath'l purchased 100 acres of land from Wm. Cumpton).
(Amelia Co., VA Deed Bk. 6: 81.

Nathaniel & wf. Hanna PAGE sold the above land (100 acres) to John Spurlock in 1760.
(Amelia Co., VA Deed Bk. 7: 272.

They then purchased some acreage on Platt's Creek in Amelia Co., VA from John and Mary Ford the same year.
(Amelia Co., VA Deed Bk. 7: 274)

Then, they sold the above land on Platt Creek to Richard Johnson in 1768 and sold it to Richard Craddock in 1770.
(Amelia Co., VA Deed Bk. 9: 255 and Deed Bk. 11: 196)
NOTE: In the first deed, the acreage was given as 396, but the grantor deed gave it as 296 acres.

Then they moved to Charlotte Co., VA where, in 1770, Nathaniel purchased 400 acres of land from Richard & Elizabeth Craddock (prob. the same as the above man of the same name.
(Charlotte Co., VA Deed Bk. 2: 429)

Nathaniel and Hannah PAGE had four sons and one daughter that I know about:(not necessarily in this order)

1. Elizabeth PAGE md. John VAUGHN of Pr. Edward Co., VA
2. Richard PAGE md. Elizabeth JONES - Richard went to Union Co., SC
3. Nathaniel PAGE md. Rosanna ? (probably yours - went to Spartanburg Dist., SC.
4. William PAGE md. Nancy ? (probably COBB????)

Nathaniel PAGE, Sr. (who md. Hannah) "may have"(?) died in Charlotte Co., VA sometime between 1783 (when he deeded a slave to his dau. Elizabeth Vaughn and land to his son Richard Page) and 1796 when "a" Nathaniel PAGE and wf. Rosamond and Richard PAGE & wf. Elizabeth sold land to George FOSTER.
(Charlotte Co., VA Deed Bk. 4: 78, Deed Bk. 5: 37 and Deed Bk. 7: 178)

Nathaniel PAGE & wf. Rosanna deeded 100 acres to John Foster in 1798 and then evidently moved away.
(Charlotte Co., VA Deed Bk. 8: 155)

However, the last year that I found Nathaniel PAGE in the Charlotte Co., VA Personal Property Tax Lists was 1798. He could have been the father or the son of this name????? This is the last year that I found any of Nathaniel's family in the Charlotte Co., VA Pers. Prop. Tax Lists.

The Charlotte Co., VA Order Book of Nov 1787 gives the following item:

"Sarah Mitchell, orphan of John Mitchell, chose Nathaniel Page as guardian and her brother, William Mitchell, chose John Watkins". (Charlotte Co., VA Ct. Order Bk. 9 (1792-1794) - (above from "Magazine of Virginia Genealogy" article titled "Eighteenth Century Charlotte Co. Children" -Vol. 25, #4, Nov 1987: 111.)

A Thomas Dove (31) appears in the 1850 census in Pittsylvania Co., Virginia. He is liivng with his wife Mary (35), Sons Frederic (4) and William (9/12), and daughter Malinda (5). M432_968, p. 171. He does not appear to be in our line.

The 1862 death register of Pittsylvania Co. shows Thomas H. Dove died August 1, 1862 of typhoid fever in Danville. He was 37 years old, born in Pittsylvania Co., and if the transcription is correct his parents were William V. Dove and Mar. Dove.

1 Apr 1811 William Dove II and Mary P. Mustain, dau. of Avery Mustain, Sur. Avery Mustain
22 Jan 1824 William Dove II-Peggy Barrett, dau of John Barrett , Sur. John Barrett (?)

If this William is the father of Thomas, his father may be the William Dove, Sr. who shows up in PIttsylvania Co. about 1783. He has a wife named Lucinda and he apparently moved there from Fairfax Co., VA. He served four tours of duty in the Rev. War in the militia, the marines and the navy. There is a pension application for this guy. They have those in the library here so I'll get that also. He owned a gristmill and left a will in the courthouse in Chatham when he died 8/21/1847 at almost 90 years of age dividing his estate between his six children.
