John Howard/Heyward and Margaret Clarke

John Howard/Heyward and Margaret Clarke

John Howard/Heyward was born 2 July 1636 in Newark, Nottinghamshire, England and died 24 April 1661, in Charles Parish, York Co., VA. He was the son of Francis Howard and Jane Monson. He married Margaret Clarke in 1650. She was the daughter of Richard Clarke She was born about 1615-40 in England and died about 1665 in York Co., Va.

They had children:

4.Ellinor Eleanor Howard/Heyward born 1656-1660 in York County, Virginia.

There may have been other children.

John Heyward, Hayward, Haward, or Howard was the original ancestor of all the
Howards mentioned in the book "Ten Generations of Virginia Howards," by Walter L Howard, Ph.D,
of the 8th generation, of California, Yolo County, Davis, 1949.

John was a member of the House of Burgesses of Virginia in 1659 and 1660, from Middle Plantation,
now Williamsburg, Virginia. Their home was four to six Miles from Yorktown, the county seat of
Virginia, York County



The following briefly shows some of the data: CLARKE, Margaret -
wife of John HOWARD who came to Jamestown, abt. 1630 CLARKE,
Thomas & Rose - Parents of Margaret above. CLARKE, John - father of
Thomas, b. 1541, Suffolk, England COOK, Catherine - mother of Thomas, b.
1541, Suffolk, England d. 1598. KERRICH, William - father of Rose above,
b. abt 1540, Suffolk, Eng. KERRICH, Robert - father of William, b. 1505,
Suffolk, Eng. CLARKE, John - father of John C. above; b. 1509, Westhorpe,
Suffolk,

THE FIRST TOPIC TO BE COVERED CONCERNS THE FATHER OF JOHN. SOME
CLAIM HIS FATHER WAS MATTHEW; OTHERS SAY, JOHN, THE MINISTER, WHO
WAS KILLED IN INDIAN MASSACRE; & STILL OTHERS SAY SIR FRANCIS & LADY
JANE (MONSON) HOWARD, WHOSE GRANDSON, FRANCIS, WAS COLONIAL
GOVERNOR OF VIRGINIA. THE LATEST IS THOUGHT TO BE NICHOLAS. NONE OF
THESE RESEARCHERS HAVE SHOWN ME PROOF OF THEIR CLAIMS. I LEAN
TOWARD SIR FRANCIS & LADY JANE (MONSON) HOWARD, DUE TO ENGLISH
NAMING PATTERN. ALSO, THE MOTHER OF FRANCIS, THE COLONIAL GOVERNOR
OF VA, WAS FRANCES COURTHOPE (COULD THIS BE A VARIATION OF
CALTHORPE?). IT IS SAID, THE CALTHORPE WHO MARRIED INTO THE FAMILY IS
OF AN ARISTOCRATIC FAMILY OF ENGLAND.

SECONDLY, SOME SAY MARGARET CLARKE CAME TO THE COLONIES IN 1635,
ABOARD THE PRIMROSE. THERE WAS A MARGARET CLARKE, AGE 21, & WM.
CLARKE, AGE 1, DEPARTED FROM LONDON ON THE PRIMROSE & LANDED IN
VIRGINIA, HOWEVER, IF THIS MARGARET CLARKE MARRIED JOHN HOWARD WHO
DIED 1661, SHE WOULD HAVE BEEN 37 WHEN SHE HAD THEIR FIRST CHILD IN
1651. ALSO, IT HAS BEEN STATED, SHE WAS THE DAUGHTER OF RICHARD CLARKE.

THERE WAS A RICHARD CLARKE OF YORK CO., VA, WHO NAMED IN HIS WILL A
DAUGHTER , MARGARET HOWARD. THIS WILL WAS PROBATED AFTER THE DEATH
OF OUR MARGARET HOWARD. WHY WOULD HE HAVE NAMED HER & NOT HER
HEIRS, AND WHY DIDN'T HE HAVE A HAND IN OVERSEEING HER CHILDREN BY
JOHN HOWARD & WILLIAM CALVERT. ALL THESE ORPHANS HAD OTHER GUARDIANS.
ALSO, THE ONLY RICHARD CLARKE I FIND IN THE YORK CO., VA, RECORDS IS ONE

WHO CAME INTO THE COUNTY IN 1660, BY LEWIS ATKINS. WHY WOULDN'T JOHN
HOWARD HAVE HAD A HAND IN BRINGING HIM INTO VA? NONE OF THE MANY COURT
RECORDS IN YORK CO., VA, FOR RICHARD CLARKE SHOW ANY CONNECTION TO OUR
HOWARD FAMILY.

GETTING THE WILLS TOGETHER WASN'T AS EASY AS I HAD IMAGINED. DUE TO
THE BULKINESS OF SENDING THE ENTIRE WILL, I HAVE CHOSEN TO EXTRACT
THEM. SO HERE WE GO:

GENERATION ONE.......
JOHN HOWARD OF YORK CO., VA. PROBATED 24 APRIL 1661
NAMES WIFE, MARGARET
SONS, HENRY & WILLIAM
DAU, ELLINOR

DISCUSSION:
IT HAS BEEN ASSUMED THAT ELLINOR WAS BORN CA 1660, HOWEVER,
YORK CO., VA, RECORDS INDICATE SHE MIGHT HAVE BEEN OLDER.
THERE ARE SEVEN YEARS BETWEEN HENRY, BORN 1651, AND
WILLIAM, BORN 1658. BY LATE OCTOBER, 1671, ELEANOR IS MARRIED
TO JOHN BARTLETT. THEIR SON, MICHAEL BARTLETT , WAS BORN 13
SEPT 1674. HAD ELLINOR BEEN BORN CA 1660, SHE WOULD HAVE BEEN
ONLY 11 YEARS OLD IN 1671....NOT! JOHN BARTLETT DIED 7 MAY 1675.
I HAVE NOT DISCOVERED WHAT HAPPENED TO ELEANOR AFTER HIS DEATH.

YORK CO VA RECORDS, 1672-1676, PAGE 120:
JUNE 24, 1675, PROBATE OF WILL OF JOHN BARTLETT, DEC'D, NONCUPATIVE,
IS GRANTED TO ELLENOR, DEC'D'S RELICT & EXECUTRIX, & PROVED BY MARY
EVERETT & DIANA HEYWARD.

SAME BOOK, PAGE 125:
CT OF YORK CO, VA, 24 AUG 1675, PAGE 120, WILL OF JOHN BARTLETT:
HE NAMES SON, MICHAEL BARTLETT; BROTHER, MICHAEL BARTLETT;
FATHER-IN-LAW (TERM FOR THAT PERIOD OF TIME FOR STEP-FATHER),
ROBERT EVERETT; MENTIONS WIFE BUT NO NAME (HER NAME IS PROVEN
IN ABOVE PROBATE RECORD); MARY EVERETT & DIANA HEYWARD, WITNESSES.

THERE HAD BEEN AT LEAST THREE GUARDIANS FOR HENRY, WILLIAM,
& ELEANOR SINCE THE DEATH OF THEIR MOTHER. THEY WERE WM
HAY, ROGER LONG & GERRARD (GERALD) CONNER.

IN 1673 HENRY HOWARD WAS APPOINTED GUARDIAN OF HIS BROTHER,
WILLIAM HOWARD.

INFO CONCERNING THE ABOVE WAS FOUND IN "CHARLES PARISH, YORK
COUNTY, VA, HISTORY & REGISTER 1648-1789":
PG 103..HAYWARD, HENRY, SON OF JOHN BY MARGARETT, OCT 16 1651
PG 104..HAYWARD, WILLIAM SON OF JOHN BY MARY (I BELIEVE THIS IS
SUPPOSED TO BE MARGARETT, AS I CAN FIND NO EVIDENCE OF
ANY JOHN MARRIED TO ANY MARY AT THIS PERIOD OF TIME) ,
B. FEBRUARY 2, 1658
CANNOT FIND ELLINOR'S BIRTH, THEREFORE, THIS COULD MEAN SHE &
WILLIAM WERE BORN IN ANOTHER PARISH OR WERE MISSED IN COMPILATON
OF THE ABOVE BOOK.

YORK CO VA RECORDS, 1659-1662, PAGE 73:
AT A COURT HELD FOR YORK COUNTY 24 APR 1661, PROBATE OF WILL OF JOHN
HEYWARD, DEC'D, GRANTED TO MRS. MARGARET HEYWARD, RELICT & EXECUTRIX,
& PROVED BY OATHS OF WILLIAM WHITLOCK & EDMOND WATTS.

CERTIFICATE IS GRANTED TO MRS MARGARET HEYWARD EXECUTRIX OF JOHN
HEYWARD, DEC'D, FOR 300 ACRES LAND FOR IMPORTATION OF 6 PERSONS INTO
THIS COLONY, VIST, JAMES GISBORNE, WILLIAM MERCHANT, ROBERT COCKUER,
MORTER SILLIMORE, ELIANOR JENINGS & ELIZABETH GIFFORD.

"YORK COUNTY, VIRGINIA RECORDS 1665-1672":
PG 49..WILL OF WILLIAM CALVERT, RECORDED 12 SEPT 1666, NAMES
HENRY, WILLIAM, & ELINOR HOWARD BUT NOT THEIR MOTHER,
MARGARET, WHOM HE HAD MARRIED. WILLIAM & MARGARET
CALVERT HAD A SON, ROBERT CALVERT, B. 9 JUNE 1665; HE IS

LEFT IN THE CARE OF CHARLES DUNN PER WILLIAM CALVERT'S
WILL, MEANING MARGARET DIED BETWEEN THAT DATE AND THE
DATE WILLIAM'S WILL WAS RECORDED. INCIDENTLY, WILLIAM
CALVERT'S MOTHER WAS ANN HOWARD. IT WAS STATED HIS
MIDDLE NAME WAS HOWARD & THAT HE WAS PROBABLY
RELATED TO JOHN HOWARD.

PG 105..AT A COURT HELD FOR YORK COUNTY, JUNE 24, 1668 PG 188:
ON PETITION OF HENRY HAYWARD, ROGER LONG IS APPOINTED
HIS GUARDIAN.

PG 131..AT A COURT HELD MARCH 10, 1668 FOR YORK COUNTY:
UPON PETITION OF HENRY, WILLIAM & ELINOR HAYWARD,
ROGER LONG IS APPOINTED THEIR GUARDIAN & IS TO BE
POSEST (SIC) OF THEIR ESTATE BY MRS. BRIDGETT HAY,
RELICT & EXECUTRIX OF CAPT. WILLIAM HAY, DEC'D, THEIR
FORMER GUARDIAN.

I MUST INSERT HERE: ANOTHER JOHN HOWARD HAS IMMIGRATED INTO
YORK CO. BRIDGETT HAY MARRIES HIM; SHE, ALSO, MARRIES THOMAS
HUNT. IT IS NOT KNOWN BY ME IF THIS JOHN HOWARD IS RELATED TO OUR
JOHN HOWARD. THERE IS NO INDICATION THAT HE IS. SURELY, IF HE
WERE RELATED, HE WOULD HAVE GOTTEN HIMSELF APPOINTED THE
ORPHANS' GUARDIAN.

PG 144..A COURT HELD FOR YORK COUNTY, JULY 26, 1669:
A NON SUIT & 50 LBS TOB. GRANTED TO MR. THOMAS HUNT
AT SUIT OF ROGER LONG, GUARDIAN TO HENRY, WILLIAM &
ELINOR
HAYWARD.

PG 173..AT A COURT HELD FOR YORK COUNTY, JULY 25, 1670:
HENRY HEYWARD IS ORDERED TO HAVE BENEFIT OF HIS LABOR,
BEING 17 YEARS OF AGE.

PG 193..AT A COURT HELD FOR YORK COUNTY, 24 MARCH 1670/1:
NEXT COURT AND ORPHANS COURT 24TH APRIL NEXT:
A LIST OF CATTLE BELONGIING TO THE ORPHANTS (SIC)
OF JOHN HOWARD, DEC'D: 10 COWS, 1 STEER, 3 YEARLINGS,
2 YOUNG BULLS, 2 OLD STEERS, ALSO 5 CALVES.

PG 213..AT A COURT HELD FOR YORK COUNTY, 24 OCTOBER 1671:
JOHN BARTLETT, WHO MARRIED ELLENOR HEYWARD, ORPHAN,
IS ORDERED TO BE POSSESSED OF HER ESTATE IN POSSESSION
OF GERALD CONNER, HER GUARDIAN.

AGAIN, I MUST INSERT, ROGER LONG, THEIR FORMER GUARDIAN, HAD DROWNED
JUNE 21, 1670. I DID NOT FIND THE COURT RECORD MAKING GERALD CONNER
THE ORPHANS GUARDIAN, BUT DO KNOW HE HAD BEEN INVOLVED.

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.

Following the death of David Hambleton, Richard Richardson (husband of Ann Hambleton) filed chancery suit against Sarah Hambleton as the administratrix of the estate of David Hambleton who was in possession of the estate and had failed to distribute the property to the heirs at law. The court records identify all of the children of David and Sarah Hambleton. The summons to Sarah Hambleton reads as follows:

"The Common Wealth of Virginia To the Sheriff of Louisa County Greeting we command you that you Summon Sarah Hambleton Administratix of David Hambleton decd, & Duke Hambleton an Infant of this David Hambleton decd by Sarah Hambleton his mother & Special guardian.

"Joshua Dillingham Lived in Henry Co. Va. about 1790, and was in Madison Co. Ky.bef 1800. I believe Winifred and Joshua went into Madison Co Ky abt 1794, poss a bit before.

"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.
