In England in the year 1658, brothers John and James Grigsby, probably nat ives of Kent, had been faithful supporters of Oliver Cromwell all during t he turbulent years following the beheading of Charles I. Cromwell di ed at this time, and his son was a weak and ineffectual man. All the whi le the sentiment in Parliament was leaning ever closer to the restorati on of the monarchy under Charles II. John and James Grigsby probably fe lt their future no longer tenable in England, and decided to immigra te to the colonies...no record has been found for the date John and Jam es embarked, nor upon which ship.

John and James Grisby are next known to be in Tidewater, Virginia, where J ohn Grigsby is recorded as owning land on the Rappahannock river as ear ly as 1660, and later in the Batain Tract at the mouth of the Occoquan Riv er, where he owned a large plantation of 887 acres.
The Fry-Jefferson map of 1755 shows a port of 'Grigsby' at this site.

John Grigsby had married Jane Prosser - possibly Rosser - earlier, and th ey raised a family of five sons and one daughter. They were John, Charle s, Mary Ann, James, William, and Thomas.

From Henrietta Hamilton's book:
"Many American families, particularly Virginians trace their descent fr om John Grigsby, whose ancestors were unquestionably of Welch origin, a nd who settled in this Country at a very early day, and were a potent fact or in the social and intellectual development of the Communities in whi ch they lived. As a people, they have been noted for their refined taste s, gracious manners, broadmindedness and liberality, and entire absen ce of anything like narrow clannishness, in religion or political matter s, and for unswerving devotion to the interests of higher education."

On Sept. 9, 1690, John Grigsby was one of the appraisers of the esta te of Ralph Elkin of Stafford County, father of Richard Elkin. "He may ha ve been related to the Ashtons' and Elkin', for in Richard Bryant's will d ated 1703, April 5, bequeathed to his son Nathaniel Bryant, "all my land w hich I now enjoy in Virginia, his mother to live wholly upon the plantati on where I now live, to daughter ELIZABETH ELKIN, 400 # tobacco and RICHA RD ELKIN to give to my grandson RICHARD ELKIN, a mare

Hugh Rudd, who died last year in Georgia, did a lot of research on the family of John Rudd, Sr., and Avis Whitaker (various spellings -- Whitacre, Whitacur, Whitteker, etc.) of Henrico and Chesterfield counties in Virginia. He found a reference to a John Rudd of Liverpool, who may be the one who married Avis Whitaker.

Since no other John Rudd (various spellings) is known to have arrived in Virginia around this time, the following record may be the same man.

In Jan. 1808, Obadiah Taylor bought 300 acres on the waters of Cherrystone Creek, a portion of which—150 acres—he sold to his son-in-law John Yates in 1811.

Information about John Bennett is at best sketchy. Neither the identity of his parents, nor the place of his birth is known. No siblings have been identified and no record has been found of his marriage. Existing records enable us to identify his wife as Elizabeth Dodson, daughter of Thomas Dodson and Elizabeth Rose.

The first record of John Bennett is in the minutes of the Broad Run Baptist Church in Fauquier Co., Va.

Isaac Ferguson was married before 1773 to Elizabeth. Her maiden name is not known. Some researchers claim that she is Elizabeth Edwards, daughter of Isaac Edwards of Northamption County, North Carolina. Support for this theory rests on two main facts: 1) that she died in Northamption County, North Carolina , and 2) that an Isaac Edwards of Northamption County named a daughter Elizabeth Ferguson in his will.

The estate records for Isaac Ferguson in Northamption County state that "Isaac Ferguson left five children at his death." The proven children are Nimrod, William, John & Elizabeth. It is presumed that Jacob and James are also sons of Isaac Ferguson. Jacob is listed in the household of Isaac Ferguson in the 1747 list of tithables for Prince William County. James Ferguson is named in records indicating possible relationship with Isaac Ferguson.

Isaac Ferguson and his wife Elizabeth were present in Virginia as early as 1733 when they sold 195 acres of land in Prince William County on the south side of Bull Run in Hamilton Parish to Joseph Bohannan. Prince William County, Virginia Deeds, Liber B; 132-1735, pp. 161-164. Isaac and Elizabeth continued to live in Prince William Co. until the early 1750s. Isaac Ferguson and his wife later moved to Amelia County, Virginia by 1752 and then to Halifax County, North Carolina by 1759.

On 8 July 1740, Isaac Ferguson of Prince William County was granted 208 acres of land on Licking Branch of Bull Run. Gertrude E Gary, Northern Neck Land Grants, 1694-1742, Vol. 1, p. 129; citing Book E, p. 161.

On 3 June 1745, he was elected to the vestry of Quantico Church, Parish of Dettigen, until 2 Dec 1751.

In 1747, Isaac Farguson is enumerated in the list of tithables for Prince William County. Also listed are Jacob Farguson and Nimrod Farguson. Prince William County Tithables, 1747, Residents of Western Dettingen Parish.

On 22-23 Mar 1749, Isaac Ferguson purchased 100 acres of land in Prince William County from Elizabeth Chaplin. The land was on the north side of Broad Run of Occoquan on a branch known as Crupper's Cabin Branch. The land was part of a 430 acre tract deeded by Col. Carter to John Flowrance in 1725. Prince William County, Virginia Deeds, Liber M; 1749 - 1752; pp. 114-116. Isaac Ferguson, then of Amelia County, sold the same property on 25-27 April 1752 to John Champe of King George County. His wife Elizabeth was privately examined and relinquished her right of dower. Prince William County, Virginia Deeds, Liber M; 1749 - 1752; pp 233-234. These deeds prove that Isaac Ferguson of Prince William County moved to Amelia County by 1752.

On 22 November 1749 George Brett, Mason Bennett and Isaac Ferguson gave bond to Thomas Lee, President of the Council, for George Brett to serve as one of the Inspectors of Tobacco at the Public Warehouse established at Quantico in [Prince William County].

Order Book 2, p. 663. At the same court, Isaac Farguson was appointed guardian to Josiah Farguson [Jr.]. [BB#3, page 104]. The inventory of the estate of Josiah Farguson, deceased, was recorded 31 May 1750. Inventories #2, pp. 58-59. Josiah Farguson married in 1748 Emblen (Tutt) Moone, daughter of Richard and Mary (Underwood) Tutt and widow of Samuel Moone (q.v.). Settlement of the estate of Josiah Farguson was made 14 Sept 1752 for the estate by by Isaac Farguson, his administrator. Fiduciary Account Book #3, pp. 50, 78, 79, 84.

On 8 Sept 1750, Isaac Ferguson became the security for Joel Berry, administrator of Henry Berry's estate, in King George County. Henry Berry, Senior died in late 1748, but there was difficulty in the probate of his will. Sarah Berry came into court and refused to accept any legacy bequeathed to her by the will of her late husband, Henry Berry, deceased. King George County Order Book 2, p. 609, 3 Feb 1748/9. The the executors named in the will having refused to act so the administration on the estate of Henry Berry was granted to Joel Berry with Isaac Ferguson as security, . Id. at 674, 8 Sep 1750. Henry Berry owned plantations in the counties of King George and Prince William. Id. at 682. Inventories of his personal property on these plantations were admitted to record 5 Oct 1750 and recorded in I#2, pp. 68-69 for King George Co., and 2 Nov 1752 and recorded in I#2, p. 72 for Prince William Co.

On 2 Dec 1751, Isaac Ferguson purchased 399 acres on Whetstone Creek in Amelia County fro William Dendy. The deed was recorded on 27 February 1752. Isaac Ferguson apparently divided the tract and sold 100 acres to Richard Bush. In a deed dated 20 December 1754, Richard Bush and his wife Sarah conveyed the 100 acres purchased from Isaac Ferguson to Henry Robertson. The land was described as part of a tract patented by William Dandy and conveyed to Isaac Ferguson. Amelia County Deed Book 5, p 41. On 27 June 1759, Isaac Ferguson and Elizabeth of Halifax County, North Carolina sold the remaining portion of the land on Whetstone Creek to James Lamkin of Amelia County. Amelia County Deed Book 4, p. 41. These deeds proved that Isaac Ferguson and his wife moved to North Carolina by December 1752. (Note: Need to check citations in this paragraph)

Note: Halifax County, North Carolina was formed in 1758 from Edgecombe County, North Carolina.

On 29 January 1753, Isaac Ferguson witnessed a deed for 127 acres of land from William Dendy of Halifax County, Virginia to James Claiborne. Amelia County Deed Book 5, p. 21.

On 19 September 1753, Isaac Fergsuon witnessed a deed of gift form John Ellis of Nottoway Parish to Hampton Wade and his wife Jean/Jane. Amelia County Deed Book 5, p. 13.

On 27 September 1753, Isaac Ferguson sold 85 acres of land to Augustine Claiborne, executor of his brother James Claiborne of Surr County Virginia. Amelia County Deed Book 5, p. 16\. The deed was acknowleged in court during the November term 1753. Amelia County Order Book 3, p. 147.

Isaac Ferguson died in Edgecombe County, North Carolina in 1764. His will, proved in Edgecombe County Court on July 1764, names his wife Elizabeth, and minor son, John. Elizabeth's estate was settled in 1789 in Northamton County, North Carolina. These records state that Isaac and Elizabeth had five children. On January 1, 1765 Elizabeth Ferguson gives to son Nimrod property left her by deceased husband, Isaac Ferguson. Edgecombe County, Deed Book C, p. 347. Another son, William, left a will dated Feb 24, 1964 and also proved in July court. It names his wife Jane and his brother Nimrod as executors.

In 1778, the Abraham Motley and others used the heirs of Isaac Ferguson in Chancery Court in Halifax County, Virginia for possession of a negro slave named Jack. Abraham Motley intermarried with one of Isaac Ferguson's daughters. A summons was issued on 5 September 1778 to Nimrod Ferguson to appear and anser the bill of complaint. The bill of complaint alleges that Isaac Fergsuon gave him an dhis wife a parcel of land in Halifax County, Virginia joining the land of Isaac Ferguson. It appears that no deed for the transfer was recorded. The bill of complaint further alleges that Isaac Ferguson later sold the land, planning to move to North Carolina, and promised to give the negro slave Jack to Abraham Motley after the death of Isaac and his wife in exchange for the land previously given to Abraham Motley. Isaac's son Nimrod, as administrator of the estate of Isaac Ferguson, took possession of the slave, which was sold as part of the estate. In his answer to the bill of complaint dated 29 June 1787, Nimrod Ferguson states that he had no knowledge of the entitlement claimed by Abraham Motley. At some point in time after 1778-1779 Abraham Motley died and his son Isaac Motley became administrator of his estate. There is no date on his continuation of his father's bill.

Court records state that Jane Vass obtained a judgment against her husband in 1768.

This recored states that jane died shortly after her marriage to Vincent Vass.

Jeremiah Cannon left a number of records in Goochland County VA. At the Jan 17 1754 vestry meeting, Jeremiah Cannon was paid "for his support" of the vestry. (Hopkins, 12) This type of entry about Jeremiah was repeated on Dec 18 1754, Oct 14 1755, Nov 7 1757, Dec 10 1758, Oct 9 1759, and Sep 25 1760. (Hopkins, 12, 13, 15, 18, 19, 21)

In 1749, Cumberland County was formed from the southern part of Goochland County. After 1749, Jeremiah probably owned land in both Goochland and Cumberland counties. Records in both counties need to be checked.

On Jun 27 1757, Benjamin Cannon of Cumberland Co sold 50 acres in Cumberland to Jeremiah Cannon, "it being part of the land where the said Benjamin now lives and bounded on David Runolds' line," for £50. (TLC, 85) Benjamin had bought this tract as part of a 200 acre piece in Feb 1753 from George Carrington. (TLC, 15)

In the 1759 processioning of Cumberland County, Jeremiah and Benjamin Cannon were listed in the precinct between Willis River, Randolph's Creek, the county line [with Buckingham County], and River Road. (Blomquist, Vestry, 132, 134; Blomquist, Land, 36) In the 1763 processioning, Jeremiah was in the same precinct. (Blomquist, Vestry, 164, 165; Blomquist, Land, 48) Benjamin was probably related to Jeremiah because Benjamin was listed in that same precinct without Jeremiah in 1755. (Blomquist, Land, 26)

Jeremiah died in 1767 in Goochland Co VA. Abstract of will, dated Feb 1 1767, probated Jun 16 1767: "to wife Elizabeth, the land I now live on during her life and widowhood, 9 head of cattle and residue of my stock, household stuff and furniture to raise my children and also 1 black horse; to son William Cannon, the land I now live on containing 70 acres after my death and the death of my wife; if he be without heir to fall to son Thomas Cannon and his heirs; my sorrel horse to be sold to discharge my debts; residue of estate after my death and the death of my wife to be equally divided between all of my children; executors, wife Elizabeth and son Benjamin Cannon; witnesses, William Sharp Smith, Humphrey Parrish Jr, and Phillip Walker." (Henley, 55)

Though Jeremiah left his son Benjamin as his executor, there are no records of Benjamin in Goochland County.
