Another brick in the wall... Anthony King Sr.

MY 4th Great Grandfather Anthony King Sr. was born in New Jersey and married Dorces Pickle. His son Anthony Junior was the father of my 2nd Great Grandfather Mike King. It is unclear at this time who his parents were.

In the 1850 census he is living with his son and his family in Floyd, Virginia. There is no known records to connect him with any parents at this time, we call this lack of sources a wall in the family history blogosphere...

WILLIAM HANCOCK SR. OF JAMESTOWN 1580 - 1622

WILLIAM HANCOCK SR. OF JAMESTOWN was the immigrant ancestor of my Hancock line who came to Jamestown to establish a settlement and was killed by "savages" at Thorpe's House in Berkeley Hundred Plantation ... 


He was a member of The Virginia Company of London which was a group of businessmen who were granted a charter by King James I (June 1606) for the purpose of establishing a settlement in the Chesapeake area of Virginia. The first settlement was established at Jamestown in 1607. As an investor in the Virginia Company, William traveled to Jamestown in 1619. According to an old Hancock family Bible, William left England on the ship ?Margaret of Bristol? sailing through the Bristol Channel on Sept 16, 1619. Leaving his family behind in England, he was coming to search for lumber for his ship-building business. [I cannot find William Hancock listed on a record of this ship]

This group of 39 people set foot in Virginia on Dec. 4, 1619 and proclaimed it a day of Thanksgiving. That location became Berkeley Hundred Plantation, a small village. William Hancock lived at Capt. George Thorpe?s house, who wanted to help convert and civilize the Indians. (This was on the north bank of the James River in what is now Charles City County, Va) 

On Good Friday, 22 March 1622 the settlement was attacked by Indians and William was among the 347 who were massacred. Other settlements were attacked also, including Wolstenholme Towne, built in 1620 on the Martin?s Hundred land grant (now James City County). Those killed in this massacre are supposed to be buried at Carter Plantation.

In 1630, three of William's son Augustine came to Virginia to claim his father?s vast estate. Son Simon came in 1635, settling in Princess Anne County, and son William came in 1638. Augustine, Simon and William became wealthy, prominent planters in VA.

In "The Genesis of the United States", page 217, there is listed among the Corporators of the Second Charter of James-1, 1609, the name of WILLIAM HANDCOCK, and on page 909 is the entry:
"Handcock, Wm., Sub-Paid 62 pounds 10 shillings, 5 pence."
See - http://archive.org/stream/genesisofuniteds02brow#page/1100/mode/2up/search/William

In the old family Bible there is written: "in the year 1620. Wm. Handcock in search of forest for his building of ships embarked for ye plantation, being one of the company owners thereof, leaving his
family in England. On the 22nd of March 1622, he, with others, was massacred by the savages at Thorpe's House, Berkeley Hundred, fifty miles from Charles City."

VA Historical Collections, Vol 8, p. 278 - confirms the death of William Hancock at Berkeley Hundred Plantation.

    THE MOSES LINVILLS OF NORTH CAROLINA

    MOSES LINVILL was born about 1750ish in NC, where my LINVILL line was living at the time...
    Now then, in the 1790 census... about 40 years later, he is in two places at once. Stokes and Surry County.... no, he was not a magician... The other Moses was probably a son or cousin of his at the time.... And the two appear again later in the 1820 census, one in Surry and one in Stokes... so there is no doubt at this point that one of the two Moses may not have been an ancestor of mine but was actually a cousin or son...  

    Lets look a little further down the line to a definite ancestor of mine named Moses Linvill, who lived in Surry NC and married Henrietta White... Moses and Henrietta had a son named Robert who married Margaret Elizabeth Johnson in Surry NC... Moses was born about 1813 in Surry NC according to his 1850 census, and so he probably was not the Moses who was in the 1790 Census or the other Moses in Stokes County then either...   He also would not have been in the 1800 or 1810 censuses when the two older Moses Linvills were alive... He would have been in the 1820 census of Surry but the census people did not put needed facts on the census until 1850 and as only the head of house was listed in those early censuses, There were probably at least three Moses Linvills in the state that year...

    Was he descended from the older 1750 Moses?  Could be. Both were born in the Surry District of North Carolina. I know for sure that the 1813 Moses married Henrietta White.... But who were his parents??? Different researchers have different theories on that... Pretty sure they were in Surry in 1813 though...

    And while at least one of these Moses was in the War of 1812, it was probably not the one born in 1813. And the one born in 1750 was probably not the one who was in the Civil War.... Just because hints have the right name does not always mean that they are the same person...

    There are at least three Moses Linvills in Surry County NC history, and at least one of them is my ancestor... Dont jump to conclusions... Keep digging and cite your sources...

    See ya in the trees...

    1802 Nov 10 - Will of John D. Hancock

    1802 Nov 10 - Will of John Hancock:

    "In the name of God Amen.

    Item. The remainder part from there down, I give and bequeath to my son Major Hancock to him and his heirs forever.
