Kelly,
Thanks much for the information on Vickers in Virginia. My information about Robert is pretty thin. I'll go back through my files and summarize. As it happens, I contacted Debbie Mauelshagen about two weeks ago. Funny how the same researchers keep rediscovering each other! :) We are from the same line and have shared some information about Burnett ancestors. Two brothers, John M. and James Burnett married sisters Nancie and Elizabeth Elam, respectively. The sisters were the daughters of Nimrod Elam and Mary (Polly) Easterling, and Polly was the daughter of Thomas Easterling and Rebecca Vickers.
I'm intrigued by the Robert Vickers in the information that you sent. He was in the right place and time to perhaps be a son to the older Robert that Debbie and I are tracking. At least he's the only other Robert Vickers in Virginia that I've heard of. The orphaned Vickers are also a possibility, especially since Robert seems to appear from nowhere.
Thanks again,
Bill Benjey

***************
Kelly,

Here is about everything I have for VA Vickers notes and refs. Rather than hold on to them, I would like you to post them for others. Maybe more can be added and we all benefit. WFT refers to World Family Tree, Vol and family. As usual, this is the working file I compile to then analyze from. I am finishing up a study of the Vickers of Rutherford County NC and hope to get that to you in about a week, then, with then with the great assistance of Kay Jenkins will turn to revising my Wilkes County Vickers study. I am still searching for the smoking gun tying the Wilkes Vickers together or prove Elias as the progenitor and one who possibly removed from Prince William County VA to NC. I have seen recent turnarounds of the material "factually" stating Elias as the father of Elijah, John etc. (of Wilkes). Although there are strong implications, I have yet to prove it myself or seen it proven by others. Just a passing along a note of caution for due regard. Believe me, when its proven, I will quickly and happily pass the data along to you and all those whom I correspond with. Thanks again for a great page and all the work.

I ran across your website and saw a few names that I recognized. I hope that you or someone else can fill in some missing information about our family.  We may be related. Some years ago my daughter and I found a copy of a will of Ebeneezer Grubb in the courthouse in Leesburg, Virginia. He had a daughter Rosanna who was born in 1813 and died in 1893 in Springfield, Ilinois. She married Thomas Vickers of Loudon County, Virginia. (I have no information about his ancestors.) Thomas and Rosanna had a son William who died in 1882.  (Someone on your site is identified as George William Vickers and I assume he is the same person.) William married Martha Derry who was born in 1837 in Harpers Ferry, West Virginia and died in 1912. William and Martha had a son, Ashby Chrisitan Vickers who was born on Christmas day 1861 in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, grew up in Springfield, Illinois, and moved to California when he was a young man. He died in 1940. Ashby married Addie Mae Holden who was born in 1869 in Oregon and died in 1954 in Hollywood, California. Ashby and Addie had five daughters and one son who was my father, Ashby C. Vickers. He was born in Los Angeles in 1908 and died in 1998. He married Carolyn Bowker Vickers who was born in Ventura, California in 1913 and is still alive. I was born in 1938 in Ventura and now live in Santa Barbara.

Hi, Don!
        Thanks for writing!  I think I finally found the George William Vickers you refer to, at the bottom of the "Vickers of Virginia" file, b. 1838.  While anything is possible, this George William Vickers' parents are listed as William Vickers and Catherine Crim, rather than Thomas and Rosanna.  The Loudon Co., does fit, however.
        While trying to find the George William you referred to, I did find another William that may be your man.  It at least deserves some serious checking. In the same "Vickers of Virginia" file, about a quarter of the way down, under Farquar/Fauquier Co, is the following:

A. Thomas Vickers b. 9 Oct 1809 in Farquier Co. VA m. 11 Aug 1798 in Loudon Co. VA to
__________ and had the following children:
A.1. MALINDA VICKERS b. ca. 1830

2ND MARY SENSABAUGH. Children with probably Caroline Reeder:
**
Here you have a Thomas Vickers with an unnamed wife (Rosanna?) who, although b. in Farquar Co., marries in Loudon Co., and has a son named William, born about the time your William might have been born (note that although the data suggests 1830 for the first several children listed, the other children were born earlier, e.g. (1790-1809).  Let me know if this fits your data.  Thanks!

    Kelly, thanks for your response. I believe you are right and that William, not George William, is my greatgrandfather. I was confused because the information showed that George was married to Martha Derry. I believe that is in error because I am quite certain she was my greatgrandmother.
Her father was Christian Derry.
    The list showing the children of Thomas Vickers differs considerably from my information which is that the children of Thomas Vickers and Rosanna Grubb included: Ebeneezer, William, Sally, Frank, Thomas, Nimrod, Charles C., Robert, Joshua, Rachael and a daughter referred to as "Sis" but whose name I don't know. Charles C. was born in 1845, married Mary Maxoon and died in 1919 in Oklahoma City. Nimrod moved to Ventura, California even before my grandfather did.
    As I indicated earlier I can not trace the Vickers family beyond Thomas.  However, there is a story in the family that they were Quakers who moved to Virginaia from Pennsylvania.
Best wishes, Don

Rosannah's parents were Ebenezer Grubb (May 30, 1763 - January 12, 1835) and his second wife, Mary E. Smallwood (January 25, 1784 - April 19, 1865) daughter of Bayne Smallwood and Marsilva Coe of Loudoun County, Virginia. I don't have much information on Rosannah other than she was born March 31, 1813 and married Thomas Vickers in Hillsboro, Virginia. Please e-mail me at daveg@permainc.com if you have any additional information about Rosannah so that we can complete her bio in the family history.

Vernon, I don't know if I have anything of use but at least I do have some names of siblings of William Vickers and Ashby Vickers. I have a list prepared by someone who appears to have been a relative of Theodore Columbus Vickers that indicates that Thomas Vickers and Rosanna Grubb had eleven children. I have ten names. They are Ebenezer, William, Sally (married Norman Bell), Frank, Nimrod, Margaret (married Dr. Price), Theodore Columbus (also known as Charles C.) Rachael (married Charles Carter) and Joshua. The names I have for children of William Vickers and Martha Derry are: William, Wilhamena Langley, Rose Vradenberg (?), Estelle Ruthrouff, Ashby, Robert, Charles, and Mattie Conley. Let me know if any of this ties into to something. Don

To: kvickers@tfc.edu

I ran across your website and saw a few names that I recognized. I hope that you or someone else can fill in some missing information about our family. We may be related. Some years ago my daughter and I found a copy of a will of Ebeneezer Grubb in the courthouse in Leesburg, Virginia. He had a daughter Rosanna who was born in 1813 and died in 1893 in Springfield, Ilinois. She married Thomas Vickers of Loudon County, Virginia. (I have no information about his ancestors.) Thomas and Rosanna had a son William who died in 1882. (Someone on your site is identified as George William Vickers and I assume he is the same person.) William married Martha Derry who was born in 1837 in Harpers Ferry, West Virginia and died in 1912. William and Martha had a son, Ashby Chrisitan Vickers who was born on Christmas day 1861 in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, grew up in Springfield, Illinois, and moved to California when he was a young man. He died in 1940. Ashby married Addie Mae Holden who was born in 1869 in Oregon and died in 1954 in Hollywood, California. Ashby and Addie had five daughters and one son who was my father, Ashby C. Vickers. He was born in Los Angeles in 1908 and died in 1998. He married Carolyn Bowker Vickers who was born in Ventura, California in 1913 and is still alive. I was born in 1938 in Ventura and now live in Santa Barbara.

Hi, Don!
Thanks for writing! I think I finally found the George William Vickers you refer to, at the bottom of the Vickers of Virginia file, b. 1838. While anything is possible, this George William Vickers parents are listed as William Vickers and Catherine Crim, rather than Thomas and Rosanna. The Loudon Co., does fit, however.
While trying to find the George William you referred to, I did find another William that may be your man. It at least deserves some serious checking. In the same Vickers of Virginia file, about a quarter of the way down, under Farquar/Fauquier Co, is the following:

 

Here you have a Thomas Vickers with an unnamed wife (Rosanna?) who, although b. in Farquar Co., marries in Loudon Co., and has a son named William, born about the time your William might have been born (note that although the data suggests 1830 for the first several children listed, the other children were born earlier, e.g. (1790-1809). Let me know if this fits your data. Thanks!
Regards,
Kelly

Kelly, thanks for your response. I believe you are right and that William, not George William, is my greatgrandfather. I was confused because the information showed that George was married to Martha Derry. I believe that is in error because I am quite certain she was my greatgrandmother.
Her father was Christian Derry.
The list showing the children of Thomas Vickers differs considerably from my information which is that the children of Thomas Vickers and Rosanna Grubb included: Ebeneezer, William, Sally, Frank, Thomas, Nimrod, Charles C., Robert, Joshua, Rachael and a daughter referred to as Sis but whose name I dont know. Charles C. was born in 1845, married Mary Maxoon and died in 1919 in Oklahoma City. Nimrod moved to Ventura, California even before my grandfather did.
As I indicated earlier I can not trace the Vickers family beyond Thomas. However, there is a story in the family that they were Quakers who moved to Virginaia from Pennsylvania.

Vernon,
Thanks for all the information.  I have one addition/possible correction for my line.  I'm descended from William and Martha Derry Vickers' daughter Willie (she was my gr-gr-grandma).  You have her married name as Langley, when in fact she married Francis Marion DeLay.  Perhaps she was married to a Langley first, then married my granddad Francis???  I've never heard of a prior marriage, but it's certainly a possibility.  Or perhaps she was widowed and remarried after her children were born??? I'm descended from their son Charles Allen DeLay Sr, and his son Charles Allen DeLay Jr.
Once again, thanks for sharing your information.  The pieces are starting to fall into place!

Kelly,
I have a few questions concerning The Vickers of Virginia.
1. Do you have the names of the children of James Vickers who m. Alley Farr, May 13, 1772?
2. Do you know who James vickers , Batetourt Co. 1785 married?
I'm still looking for the parents of James Vickers b.1784 in VA, who was a leading planter of that state. I'm a decendent of this James Vickers and have hundreds of names of decendants of his children, but I don't know who his parents are, nor where in VA he was born.

**Additional Information on the Vickers Family – Gloucester/Rappahannock/King George/Stafford and Prince William Counties - including other early immigrants to the Colonies.

 

Ref: Early Emigrants to America.

 

**These are additional Vickers  who came early to the colonies:

I do not know who they are or if they are related to our lines—

 

Peter Vickers-Nansemond Co. transported by Andrew Bennett-1651

Bryan Vickers-James City Co.- transported by Edward Travis- (Travers)- 1639

Edward Vickers- James City Co.- transported by Edward Travis- 1639

John Vicars- Charles City Co.- Appamattox- transported by Thomas and Henry Batte

Thomas Vicars- Nansemond Co. - transported by? - 1694

**some of these records un-readable-

 

*****************

 

Thomas Vickers- born in early 1600s- possibly to the Americas by 1665 or before and he appears to have been a man of some means.  Most of his land was acquired for transporting persons over to the colonies as Head Rights. Listed as Clerk and a minister in Gloucester County, probably Petsworth or Ware Parish. 

 

Married to Dorothy-  (maiden name unknown) She apparently re- married a man named Knowles after Thomas’ death.   (There is a Thomas Wickers who made a will in Westmoreland Co. about 1704- but I don’t think know if this is Thomas Vickers)

Thomas died probably by 1690.  

 

Ref: “Records of Colonial Gloucester County, Virginia”- (deeds and descriptions)

 

According to the deed records he patented land for over 2500 acres but some of it may have gone to others?  I do not know how it was divided up. 

 

1. 650 acres- 1665- in Gloucester County- **for transport of 13 persons to the colony, including self? ( included Richard Knott) - this land was on the South side of a branch dividing from and of Richard Barnard and William Thornton and adjoining William Roberts and Christopher Regal to Rappahannock Path.

 

2. 517 acres-1667- Thomas Vickers and John Buckner- Petsworth  Parish- adjoining John Day, Isaac Richardson, Oliver Green, Edward Teale, Christopher Greenaway, Thomas Wisdom, and Thomas Miller to Rappahannock Path .  **11 persons listed as Head Rights including John Buckner.

3. 122 acres- June 1668- Thomas Vickers and John Buckner- *(need to check Buckner’s land description). Thomas Vickers also received 20 more acres at the same time on Tottopottomoys Swamp adjoining Mr. Cordery’s plantation.  

 

4. 550 acres - August 1669- Thomas Vickers and Robert Littlefield- Gloucester County. Located between the branches of Chiscake and Ware River adjoining David Monorgan and Richard Renshaw, to the head of Briery Branch, and adjoining John Saunders and Thomas Cheney, by the Indian Path to the corner of Lawrence Smith, and along Col. Warner’s line to the branch of the Peanketank River and by land of said Robert Littlefield.  

 

5. 190 acres- June 1678-  Gloucester County – Ware Parish, adjoining Maj. Lawrence Smith, Mr. Mordecai Cooke, Richard Renshaw, deceased, Robert Littlefield, and  Col. Warner near the head of Briery Branch  –**Four Head Rights here. 

 

6. 1260 acres- 1690- Rappahannock/Richmond Co. Adjacent Mr. Buckner and Mott’s land on Gravely Run- On June 2, 1703, Dorothy Knowles, widow of Thomas and mother of Martha, a minor at this time, requested that the patent be in Martha’s name.  **This indicates Thomas deceased at this time, and his patents granted post-mortem.

 

7. 150 acres – 1691- Adjoining Mr. Fawcett’s to Rappahannock Path, to Mr.Lee and Mr. Thornton, crossing Bull Head Swamp.  **Four Head Rights listed here.

 

8. 81 acres- 1693- Petsworth Parish adjoining Mr. William Pretchett, and William Cook, deceased.   **Two Head Rights listed here. 

 

9. 360 acres – 1693- King & Queen Co., for transport of 8 persons.

 

Evidently, the last three patents were granted after Thomas’ death in 1690.  Does not indicate who received them, but it is probable that he had other children. (Maybe Elias?)

There should be church records of baptisms if he was a minister, and it would be

only appropriate that he record the baptism of his own children???

 

***There is a posting on the Mormon web-site in regard to a Robert Nettles, ancestor to the Nettles family of South Carolina who married into the Yelvington family. It is said that there were two Nettles brothers who came by way of New York to the colonies in 1660s and settled in Gloucester County, Virginia, Petsworth Parish.  According to the post, Robert Nettles was born @1677 and died @1725 and married Mary Vicaris, daughter of Thomas Vicaris and wife Dorothy. He was a road surveyor and commissioner.  I have not been able to find out more about him and don’t recall seeing the name in the early records, so if anyone has information on him, feel free to expand it. Especially as to whom Mary Vicaris was- I suspect that Thomas Vicaris/Vickers may have married late in life as Mary is listed as being born about 1675-9?? And Martha was born 1685? 

   

Counting total Head Rights in this reference is 33 in all. This may not be all there was, but it is all that were named.  

 

**At this time, it is not known what, if any, connection there was between Thomas Vickers and John Vickers but part of Thomas’ land apparently fell in Richmond County next to John Buckner and the  Motts. This is the land that went to his daughter Martha who married Major William Todd of King and Queen, whose will was recorded January 1736/7 in Orange County Virginia. **The Todd family is also in Surry and Sussex Counties Virginia and married into my Mason lines.

 

Ref: Old Rappahannock County Deeds and Wills- 1677-1682- Part II.

  

John Vickers was also a minister and is referred to as Parson.  He married Elizabeth Waight, about 1675, daughter of John Waight who had received a land patent on lower side of Golden Vale Creek, (date at this time unknown).  John was living on probably the 400 acres land adjacent his Uncles Mott on Muddy Creek, that had been deeded to him by said Motts, in Upper Precincts of Rappahannock County (possibly Richmond) and he and Elizabeth made a deed to sell 100 acres of the land her father had left her by his will, to William Smith, described as part of a parcel lying back of land sold to James Jackson. (By whom?)  John and Elizabeth signed this deed in December 1679 in presence of James Harrison and James Amy.  They appointed James Harrison as their Attorney to acknowledge this sale to William Smith for them, May, 1680- witnessed by John Powell and Daniel Marriott.

 

***James Harrison, son of Andrew Harrison and Elinor Ellitt, had married Elizabeth Mott, widow of George Mott.   **These Harrisons are of Gobions Manor in England, and are connected to the other families of Harrisons who settled on the James River, including Benjamin Harrison III who married to Elizabeth Burwell, daughter of Lewis Burwell and Abigail Smith,  and Elizabeth was probably a sister to the first wife of  William Boykin in Isle of Wight County. (Ours)  The Harrisons are my direct line thru my Mother’s side of the family who intermarried into the Armstrong family that married into the Vickers family. (Ha!) **The Calvert Family, originally of Maryland, also married into the Harrison family and is mentioned in some of the deeds here and in a case versus Elias Vickers.  John Calvert married to Elizabeth Harrison and the George Calvert who brought suit against Elias Vickers was his son.  (This case needs to be researched more as well of the Vickers of Maryland?)       

 

John Vickers and Elizabeth had one son for sure, Nathaniel N. Vickers, of whom I have not been able to find anything else. Nathaniel sold land back and forth with the Harrisons and finally to Thomas Taylor.  One of the deeds mentions a Robert Waite/Waight on Golden Vale Creek. Possibly he was also an heir of John Waight, but there were others mentioned in Isle of Wight County Virginia records, especially an Ursula Waight that I intend to look up. There were Wrights there also.

 

 

On the Mott Family:

 

Ref: Archdale, Combs & Visitations of England-    By the Combs Family

**Material taken from “Harleian Manuscripts and Selected Additional Miscellaneous English Lineages”.

 

John Mott- b Shalford, Essex England

 

1.  Thomas Mott – b 1514- married to Alice Meade

 

               1. Mark Mott- b 1549- married Frances Gutter

1. John Mott- 1572- married to Alice Harrington, daughter of Thomas Harrington (probably the progenitor of the Harringtons or Arringtons in Virginia.)  An Arrington was mentioned in the 1738 Quit Rent Roll of Pr. William.  (Along with George, George, Jr.  and Sarah Calvert).

 

**The Arrington/Harringtons are married to my Mason Family in North Carolina -- William Mason, younger brother to George Mason of Stafford Co. in particular. George and his younger brother William came over from England and lived in Stafford County.  William migrated to Rose Bay, North Carolina.  **there is a William Mason mentioned in records of William Vickers/Vickery who was administrator of will of John Sidey? Essex Co. Va.??? 

                 

               2. John Mott- of Braintree- Married the sister of Sir Thomas Gardiner- Suffolk.

 

**This too is probably where the Gardiner family comes in.  The Gardiners are intermarried with the Vickers, especially in Rowan County and Edgecombe Co.

 

The Mott family is listed in the 1790-1800 Reconstructed Census for Virginia Tax Lists as: Ann, Betty, James, Mosley, Randal and Thomas – 1788 Northumberland County along with the Ball Family and the Gaskins family.

ELIAS VICKERS - STAFFORD COUNTY/ PRINCE WILLIAM, VIRGINIA

 

(Prince William taken from King George and Stafford Counties- 1731- Stafford from Westmoreland and Westmoreland from Northumberland).

 

**This is additional information to add to what we already have.

 

Ref: Query from P.M. Sutko on Ancestry.com- October 1999.

 

**Searching for information on Elias Vickers- in Prince William County as early as 1723.

He is in Quit Rent Roll for that year with 100 acres- He apparently is deceased that year also.  ***This is the earliest one.  His will was lost, but the index indicates that it was probated that year. (King George records suffered destruction in Rev. War.)

 

At least one child identified- Elias Jr.- also deceased by 1730-  His Will lost also.

***His would be the children in the 1738 Tax List of Prince William, listed as “orphans”. Apparently they are listed all the way to 1750’s as his orphans.

 

He had a son named John born before 1730 who lived between Broad Run and Quantico and he possibly was married into the Wright family.  Speculation on this is due to the fact that he had two known sons, John Wright Vickers and Elias III- Elias III lived on land previously owned by Richard Wright and it was adjacent to land of Elias Jr.’s land. John Vickers died by 1784.

 

Elias Vickers III moved to Rockingham, Virginia by 1785.

 

***Besides Richard Wright, there was a Joseph Wright listed in Prince William records as well as a Hezekiah Wright listed in Rowan County records.  I don’t know if there is a connection here.

 

Elijah Vickers of Wilkes County- son of John? who married Sarah Childress- is in the 1784-7 Census as:

 

1 male 21-60                         2 females all ages

1 male under 21

1 male above 60  

 

**If Elijah was born 1759- he would not be the one over 60- But perhaps his father was living with him at that time. He could have very well died that same year. 

 

Elisha Vickers b 1798- who married Jane and was the son of Elijah is in the 1850 Census of Wilkes County North Carolina with these children:

 

1. Lindsey- b 1833-4- married Sarah Shoemaker

2. Martha- b 1835

3. Willis E. – b 1837- married Elizabeth Colvard- October 29, 1859. Rowan Co. NC

4. Betsy (Elizabeth)- b 1841

5. Adolphus- (Delphia)- b 1843

6. Louisa- b 1845

7. Frances (Nancy)- b 1848

 

You know, if I am not wrong, Peter Vickers, son of Abraham of Bucks Co. Pa who married the Knight, is said to have gone to Rockingham Co. Va. also. Will have to go back over this mountain of notes again to see. You will find the Knight family sprinkled around in Georgia and Florida too.  

 

If anyone can add to this or make corrections, please do so.  Thanks

You have a very informative Web page; however, there is an error. The John Vickers who married Jane Webb in Old Rappahannock County, Virginia, died in Stafford County, Virginia, before 12 Mar 1687[8] when an inventory of his estate was ordered. His wife Jane swore to the accuracy of the inventory on 23 March 1688.

Hi Kelly-

            I am sending you info I have found out about this Ralph III- son of Ralph, Jr. and wife Sarah-  who died in York Co. SC- It is definitely him who was in both Anson Co. records and then York Co. records - I guess since SC boundaries were formed between 1785 -1800. 

            The way I knew is because this Ralph's daughter married Michael Berry who appears on one of the deed records in Anson with Ralph. I would assume also that Michael Berry is connected somehow with the Berrys who married into the Folsom family who married Rachel Vickers- Drury Vickers sister. 

            The Deed and Will Records of Anson Co. -Colony of NC -1765-1775- Abstracts of Land Patents Vol. 2. by Hoffman- p 48 No. 26, 139 prove that. These deeds also mention Scarborough land adjacent that of Ralph Vickers.

 

            Apparently this Ralph sold part of the land he received in 1785 to Abraham Ballew ( 100 acres) in 1786- I do not know how much land Ralph actually had, but it changed hands a number of times. 

   

            I have incorporated his info into the records for John Vickers of Edgecombe since that has the direct lineage - It is interesting because Ralph III had son John who is thought to have gone into Georgia. At this time, I have not figured out which one he may have been. 

 

Hope you all are o.k. I heard from Barbara Boynton yesterday.  I stay in touch with her as much as I can. We all owe her a great debt of gratitude for the info in Florida.

 

Talk to you again soon.

Vicars, Vickars/Vickers  Ancestry

From New England to the South

 

 

Family Crest of the Vicars/Vickers Family

Reference: Burke’s Book of Heraldry

Arms-Argent- A Fret Gules- Red, Black and White Vest

Crest- Cubit- Holding a Millrind Azure

Motto-   “Vigore”--

Meaning and Origin-possibly pertaining to the Church as in VICAR- man of the Church- or of the Vicarage?

**Burke’s Book says possibly the first Vicars came from Spain from one named “Vicaro” who came to England in the suite of Catherine of Aragon-4th wife of King Henry VIII and settled in Ireland. Whether this is true or not bears further research.

 

John Vickers b @1584- England and died 1623- Jamestown, VA.

 

John Vickers is said to have come from London, England to help colonize the Americas. He apparently married to Sarah (maiden name unknown), about 1619- She was born in Jamestown 1588. John Vickers died about 1622-23.

**Listed in “List of the Living & Dead in Virginia, February 16, 1623 as deceased.

He is not in the 1624 Census of Jamestown.

** He would have been about 35 years old at his marriage. 

 

Supposed child of John and Sarah:

John Vickers-born @1620 in Old Rappahannock Co., Virginia, Died Sept 13, 1677 in Isle of Wight County, Virginia or Stafford?  He married Jane Webb about 1644, daughter of Elias Webb and wife Katherine, (maiden name unknown), widow of John Knott of Westmoreland County.

Will names children:

1.            John- @1648-50 married Ruth- Died 1729 in Chowan/Bertie Co. N.C.

2.            Ralph- b 1650? Married? -  His daughter Margaret married William Boykin, son of Edward Boykin. Will date of Ralph- 10 Feb 1742- R 14 Jan 1743. Names his three grand-children of Margaret and William Boykin.

Daniel Herring may have been acting as attorney- **(This land sold to Ralph by Benjamin Boykin.) 

Half Brother Abraham Carnall, son of Thomas Carnall and Jane. **Her second husband.

**Will also mentions “ God-daughter, Mary Knight” - who I think belongs to Peter Knight of Isle of Wight co. Virginia- This Peter Knight received grant of land from Sir John Harvey on main creek adjacent to Lt. John Upton – 200 acres –Mar 13, 1638- I also believe he was the one who married to Mary or Genevieve Basse- of the family of Nathaniel Basse- Peter Knight also transported Frances Mott to Old Rappahannock Co., probably related to John and George Mott,  and she married John Finnell.

**Many of the Basse family migrated south into Mississippi territory and into Texas later. Elias Vickers is found with them in Covington Co. MS.

Will of Ralph Vickers II- Parish of St. Mary’s – Aug 11, 1761- R Sept Court 1762.

Wife and Executrix-“lend plantation whereon I live, reversion to youngest son Abraham- one Negro to be sold at her death, money divided between four youngest children, horse, saddle, bridle, two pewter dishes, pewter tankard, six pewter plates, cast iron pot and frying pan.  Eldest son and executor, Ralph Jr., plantation bought of William Williamson, horse, large gun and sword.  Sons, John, plantation bought of  John Moore, also horse and gun, Abraham, mare bought of Edward Burton to be shared with Sarah. Sarah- furniture and residue to be divided between wife Sarah and her four children.  Mary Baker, Rachel Scarborough, eldest daughters, two pounds fifteen shillings each.” Witnessed by Moses Baker, Benjamin Brand and Aaron Baker.  

** this will indicates Ralph was married more than one time- The older girls being Mary and Rachel,  are probably by a first wife. The provision for “four younger children” and the separate provision for the girls, along with the wording of the will indicate Sarah as mother of the three boys and a younger daughter Sarah.  He may have been married when he was in Southampton Co.?   

 

** William Williamson- possibly the same one b 1744, Bladen Co. N. Carolina who married Mary Gardiner and was son of William Jonathan Williamson who married a Collins. He also was of the same family as John Williamson who married Nancy Jordan and died Butts Co. Georgia; All of these wives are from connecting families.

He apparently was in Anson Co., North Carolina in 1779 when Anson was divided up into the new counties, Richmond and Montgomery, North Carolina- east of the Pee Dee River. The Pee Dee River runs into the upper part of South Carolina into Marion County. There is also a record of an Original Grant to a Ralph Vickers in Warren Co. North Carolina, which was also taken from Anson- possibly the one he received in a grant 1785. 

***This Ralph is the same one who is found in Anson Co. North Carolina in October 1779 with others who passed law dividing Anson County, creating Richmond, then Montgomery Co. N.C. east of the Pee Dee River. According to Anson Co. N.C. Land Grants, Early Probate and Abstracts” p 129, Ralph Vickers was one of the buyers of the estate of John Williamson along with 16 others1783.  He also received land in a grant 1785. He owned land in Anson as late as 1800-

Ralph Vickers is in Anson Co. 1790 Census, with 2 males over 16, 1 male under 16, but 3 females over 16.

He is in York Co. South Carolina census 1790, with 2 males over 16, 1 male under 16, and 1 female.  (If the census was taken at different times of the year, this would be possible??) York Co. was formed in 1785- from Camden Dist- which later became Pinckney District.

 

In 1800 Census he is listed in his household: p 948

Ralph Vicars- 2 males 16-25- 1 male over 55

S.C. land grants just meant that they bought the land, per the folks at the S.C. Archives.  **He is in South Carolina census 1790, with 2 males over 16, 1 male under 16, and 1 female.

***Note:  The South Carolina Archives and History Center says in 1785, Cheraws District was divided into Chesterfield, Marlboro and Darlington Counties- but it divided Camden District into York, Chester, Fairfield, Lancaster, Richland, Claremont and Clarendon Counties”

Important note here:

**According to the will of William Hatcher of Johnston Co. N.C., and Mary Boykin his wife, one of his sons married to Martha Vickers, daughter of John and Mary Vickers, and four of his daughters married four of the Vickers brothers to Martha. William was son of John Hatcher and Mary Hancock of Henrico Co. VA

His children were:

1. John- Bertie, NC- married Mary Brady

2. Jesse- Bertie, NC- married Priscilla Nunnalee- to Georgia d/o Moses Nunallee?

3. Obedience (Beady)-  married Gideon Yelvington, May 14, 1785 -  lived probably Edgefield South Carolina near Seth Hatcher,  and is said to have had one child.  It is presumed she died there because Gideon shows up later in Georgia in the 1804 Montgomery Co. jury list and is on the 1805 Land Lottery. He is later in Florida and no mention of her is made.  *The Yelvingtons are connected with Drew Vickers Group, Lowndes Co. Ga.   

4. William Jr. – married Martha Vickers, daughter of John and Mary-

5. Pheby- married John Coleman. **Colemans went to Georgia and Florida.

6. Mary- married Joseph Vickers about 1762- Darlington, South Carolina. She may have died there also or else she came into Georgia with Joseph and died there.  

7. Ann - married a Vickers

8. Lucy- married a Storey

9. Tabitha- married to Thomas Cockrell- s/o Thomas Cockrell and Elizabeth-

10. Millie- married probably Joshua Vickers- and I think this is mine**- The name Mary Mildred was handed down thru the girls of the family.  Of course this is not proven, but there was an older Joshua Vickers and a younger Joshua Vickers in the early Alabama and Georgia records.   My Joshua, Gadsden and Leon Co. Florida, married Martha “Patsy” possibly Harris?  

11. Sarah- married a Vickers

From this will,  we then  have a double connection to the Hatchers- They along with the Bryants, and Boykins were direct kin.

5.   Ralph- b @1750-60- Died Muhlenburg Co. Kentucky- married to Nancy White.

6.   Benjamin- b@1753? May have married a Hatcher.  He is believed to have been a Tory during Rev. War- killed by a Mr. Bradstreet of Edgecombe Co. in Georgia about 1786-7?  Benjamin sold land in Edgecombe Co. on S. side of Town Creek to John Vickers Jr., being parcel of land John Sr. bought of Richard Horne. Mar 21, 1781. Deed Bk 4- p 25- He sold to John Morris for 50 pounds- 100 acres land on South Side Town Creek- 8 Feb 1783.

**Edgecombe Co. Abstracts of Court Records- Wednesday 4 May 1785- “Benjamin        Vickers, son of John Vickers took part in war with the British Army when in this state.”

 

Per letter of Lola Vickers King, Liberty Hill, Texas- direct descendant-

Benjamin had sons James, Benjamin, Jr. and a daughter unknown- Benjamin Jr. b 1776-80 married Henrietta Robinson about 1803. This Benjamin went to Canada and is said to have served under “Mad Anthony Wayne”. He left Canada about 1813 for Logan Co. Ohio. He had a son James- b 1804- who married Elizabeth Sanders about 1827, said to have been from England and whose family came to Pennsylvania and into Ohio. Their children:

1. Silas b  Mar 21, 1828, who married Mary Jane Netherlin  b. Mississippi,  and  came to Caldwell Co. Texas by way of Lawrence County Mississippi where a son James Solomon Vickers was born about 1857-60.  In 1868, he located on a farm of 385 acres in Williamson Co. (probably at Liberty Hill or Georgetown). They had about 14 children, perhaps some more born in Mississippi:

            a Elizabeth- b d – married G.G. Anderson

            b. Louisa- b d married John Lockhart

            c. Liddie- b 1856-d 1863-  

            d. Charles Lymon – ancestor of Lola King

            k. S.J.- b d

            l. G.G.- b d

m. C.E.- b d 

  Silas died 1914.

 

Other children of James and Elizabeth were Caleb- went to Mexico- no further-

Caroline A. - married William James Slaughter at Georgetown, Texas, Williamson Co. 1858.

*James married again to a Mrs. Miller and they went to San Antonio where they established a hotel called St. Leonards. By 1856 they were in California where he died in a logging accident.     

**Note of interest:  Ref: “Headrights and Grants of Texas – Vol 6 Abstract 628-1854 and Vol. 9- Abstract 820- 1858”- lists a John Vickers- b Dec 10, 1841- Mother named Mary-father unknown, from Virginia. Mary was born mar 10, 1769 and died Jan 20, 1843 at age 73 years. John had a brother named Thomas Vickers.   I have no idea who this is.   

 

7. Joshua- b 1750-70-may have married to Milly Hatcher??- probably went to Georgia  and received 200 acres land in Washington Co. Georgia- Ceded land that began about 1773. In 1782 he received 200 plus another 100 acres in Washington Co. He is on Capt Parrott’s Muster Roll in 1793 with Drury Vickers. 

 

8. Stephen– b. 1750-70- married probably to Elizabeth Brown- daughter of  Nancy Brown, whose will dated 1829,  Meriwether Co. Ga  indicated that Elizabeth and Stephen had moved out of Georgia by about 1808-9 which may be true since a Stephen Vickers was in Laurens Co. 1808.  They appear to be the ones in Florida.

 

There is a younger Stephen Vickers b 1781-1792?  He married to Jane Mills- d/o Henry I. Mills and wife Ann of So. Carolina.  They are in 1850 Census records of Jefferson Co. Florida living next door to Henry Mills Jr., probably her brother. Henry Jr. married to Sarah Murphy or Murphrey?  In the 1800 So. Carolina Census, there appear to be two Stephen Vickers in Darlington County.  ** The Mills family were Quakers- of Frederick Co. Virginia and Jefferson Co. Tennessee- They married into the Mendenhall , Beeson and Pennington Families of Chester Co. Pennsylvania.   .

Stephen (younger one)  may have died around 1862 as Jane Vickers is in the 1870 Census record as living with John Clark Household in Jefferson County Florida as an “Aunt”- **There is a John Clark b 1827- Chester Co. SC- who married to Jane Boykin and died at Flat Creek, Gadsden Co. Florida , 1910.  ??

11. Elizabeth –b. 1750-70- married Benjamin White

12. Joseph N. - b 1755-70- to Darlington S. Carolina – said to have married Mary Hatcher-  In Dec 22, 1793- Joseph was appointed guardian of Jethro Spivey (minor) of that County. Connection here unknown.  He received in Cheraw’s District by June 7, 1795,  500 acres and received 235 acres land in Darlington District- between Jeffrey’s Creek and Lake Swamp- bounded by Joseph Nettles, south by James Kirby, east by Nettles and west by Jane Vickers. (*Nettles family lived in Marion Co., married to Yelvingtons)  Cheraw District- on Lake Swamp- Feb 5, 1798- bounded by lines running NW-NE and NE- by Edward Sessions land and Samuel Wadkins.

 

Ref: South Carolina State Land Grant Vol. 43 p 362-June 15, 1798 and Vol 50 p 434 Bk ZZZ-  910 acres surveyed for him Aug 20, 1802- Darlington District bounded by J. Vickers (Joseph, Jr. or John?) between Jeffrey’s Creek and Lake Swamp. He received this grant Sept 5, 1804.   He was in 1800 Darlington Co. S.C. census records and in Wilkinson/Laurens Co. Ga. records 1805-6 on the first grand jury of Laurens County. He made land deals from 1806 to 1811 and one of these includes a James Vickers 1808. I am inclined to believe that James was one of his children.  In 1811, Joseph is probably the one who got passport thru the Indian lands with John Tanner and wife, and he with two children, one who had a wife, and 12 slaves to Western country. Does not say anything about him having a wife? **John Tanner was part of the family of Joseph Tanner of Burke Co. Georgia, who married into the Lanier family of Anson Co. and goes back to Edward Tanner who married Mary Hatcher daughter of Henry Hatcher and Ann Lound of Henrico Co. VA. Ref: Tanner Family History and the Hatcher Family History.    

 

John Wesley Tanner b 1845 Douglas, Coffee Co. Georgia married Sarah Gaskins, daughter of John Gaskins and Frances Lott. The Gaskins were of Beaufort District South Carolina, and before that Bertie Co. NC. and before that Northumberland Co. Virginia. Here is a connection to family of Wiley Vickers group, Coffee Co. Ga.

John Tanner b 1794- South Carolina was son of Josiah Tanner and Martha Wooten of Mecklenburg Co. Virginia and died Oldham Kentucky.  The Wooten family was married to the Bryant family of Isle of Wight Co. Virginia. Ref: NC Mountain Folk and Connected Families  by Yvonne Amico.
