PAYNE, Flayle Payne Sr. (1696-1764) Biography



PAYNE, Flayle Payne Sr. (1696-1764) Biography

Flayle Payne was Christened 29 Nov. 1696, St. Mary Magdalene Anglican Church, Old Fish St. in London England. His parents were Thomas and Elizabeth Payne. 

Thomas Payne was listed as a Clothworker in the 1695 census of London. The Clothworker's union were a powerful organization that played a big part in the government of London. King James was an honorary member of the Clothworkers. Thomas and Elizabeth Payne had three sons and a daughter, all Christened in St. Mary Magdalene Anglican Church in London. 

Mary was Christened on Mar. 10, 1693 
Flayle was Christened on Nov. 29, 1696.
John was Christened on Oct. 27, 1702.
Thomas was Christened on Oct. 1, 1704.

Flayle Payne first appeared on record in America as a witness in a Prince George's Co. Maryland court in August 1727. In Nov. 1730, Flayle Payne was listed on a list of settlers in the Monocacy Valley of western Maryland. Also, in 1730, Flayle was listed as an Indian Scout in Prince George's Co. In July 1731, the Maryland Assembly rewarded Flayle Payne for returning a runaway slave from beyond the Monocacy. In 1734, 1736, and 1737 Flayle was paid a small bounty for bringing squirrel heads in to Prince George's County.  

In Nov. 1738, Flayle was appointed overseer of the road built between Monocacy and Antietam. In Nov. 1740, Flayle was appointed Constable of Monocacy Lower Hundred.

The English Church was established in Maryland in 1692, and in 1742, Frail Pain (Flayle Payne) was among the inhabitants, of Senaca and Monocacy Hundreds, who signed a petition to divide Prince George's Parish and establish All Saints Parish. However, Flayle's name never appeared on any church records. 

In 1744, Flayle Payne, and son, Thomas, signed a petition for a bridge to be laid out at the mouth of Catoctin Creek and a main road to be laid out from Tuscarora Creek to the mouth of Catoctin and from thence to Antietam Creek in present day Washington County. 

In 1748 Frederick Co. was formed from the western part of Prince George's Co. In a Nov. 1750 court, Flayle Payne and Flayle Payne Jr. were among the gentlemen appointed overseer of the River road and Richard Touchstone's Road.

Will of Flayll Payn dated October 1764 
He devised "Payn's Industry" to son Thomas, the upper part of "Payn's Delight" to son John, and the lower part to sons Flayll and Peter, equally. He bequeathed one-third of his moveables to son Flayl, and the balance of the moveables to be divided between Peter and John Best. He bequeathed one shilling sterling to daughter Martha Nichols.

In the above will, no wife was named. We think that John Best was married to a deceased daughter of Flayle. Flayle's land, " Payne's Delight" was located approximately where the present day town of Knoxville Maryland is today, near the Potomac River. "Payne's Industry" was located in the vicinity of the present day towns of Weaverton and Sandy Hook.  

Of Flayle's children, Thomas died shortly after his father. Some of his descendants migrated to Bedford Co. Virginia during a period from 1773 to 1779.

 Frederick Lee Payne, now deceased, from Cincinnati Ohio, descends from Thomas. Fred's lineage is Flayle Payne, Thomas Payne, Flayle Payne, who migrated to Bedford Co. Va., Flayle Pollard Payne, of Bedford Co. and Giles Co. Va. Thomas Payne, Fred Pollard Payne, and Frederick Lee Payne. I have a DNA match with Frederick Lee Payne. 

Norman L. Payne author of " Payne and Associated Families of Breckinridge County Kentucky" descends from Thomas Payne, but, for some reason, his DNA does not match others in the Flayle Payne line, maybe an adoption?

John Payne, son of Flayle, from whom I, Billy Payne descends, sold his portion of "Payne's Delight" in 1773, and along with wife, Mary, purchased 112 acres of land in south Bedford Co. Va., near Huddleston Va. in 1774. It states "John Payne late of the Province of Maryland" The land was located on the branches of Rock Castle Creek. He later purchased 120 acres of land on nearby Goose Creek. In 1781 John Payne was credited with providing one beef for the Revolutionary cause and was declared a Patriot. I, Billy Payne, have a DNA match with Thomas Chester Payne of Bedford co. Va. 

His family lived on a portion of the land that John and Mary Payne purchased in 1774. The above John Payne died in Bedford co. in 1798, leaving a will naming wife, Mary, sons John, Thomas, and William, and daughters Catherine Kennett, Sarah Brown, and Margery Harper. 

Flayle Payne Jr., son of Flayle, operated a ferry that crossed the Potomac between Maryland and Virginia in the 1760's. He was also a private in the American Revolution. He, accompanied by Patrick Lynch, moved to Bedford Co. Va., in 1779, and settled within a mile of his brother, John. 

Flayle Payne Jr. died in Bedford Co. in 1783, leaving a will naming sons, Thomas and William, and daughters Martha and Nancy. Peter Payne, son of Flayle, and wife, Elizabeth, by deed dated 27 April 1772, sold his lower half of "Payne's Delight" to his brother, Flayle Payne Jr. of Frederick Co.

 In 1766, Peter Payne, with other Planters of Frederick Co., signed a petition to the Council of Maryland requesting greater assurance of bills of credit. The will of Peter Payne was dated Nov. 1777, and probated 23 June 1778.
