Re: EDWARD BOYKIN/ANNE GWALTNEY
Posted by: Virginia Clements (ID *****9519) Date: April 09, 2011 at 19:47:07
In Reply to: EDWARD BOYKIN/ANNE GWALTNEY by Sandy Elder of 1547

See below what I have. I am going to try to get a Supplement with Colonial Dames of 17th Century using Anne Gwaltney as the wife of John Boykin who was a son of Edward. My ancestor will be Edward Boykin,Sr. with wife Anne Williamson.
This could take a year to get approved if at all. Virginia Tuttle in Marietta,GA

Descendants of Edward Boykin, Sr.
Generation No. 1
       1. Edward1 Boykin, Sr. was born Abt. 1650 in Huntingdonshire, Kent County, England, and died Bef. 27 May 1728 in Isle of Wight County, Virginia. He married Ann Williamson Abt. 1675 in Isle of Wight County, Virginia, daughter of William Williamson and unknown. She was born Abt. 1650 in Virginia, and died Bef. 1730 in Isle of Wight, Virginia.
Notes for Edward Boykin, Sr.:
Source: HISTORICAL SOUTHERN FAMILIES by John Bennett Boddie, c. 1959, Pub: Pacific Coast Publishers, Vol. 3: Edward Boykin, the first of his family in Virginia, is said to have been born at Caernarvon in Wales, but this is unsupported tradition. Edward was a land owner in Isle of Wight County in 1678 for on July 3, 1678, Nicholas Cobb sold Thomas Tooke land adjacent to James Manning and Edward Boykin. He patented 520 acres on the Blackwater in 1683 and Arthur Allen sold him 525 acres at Blackwater Aug.9, 1692. Arthur Allen of "Lawnes Creek Parish, Surry Co.,", on Feb. 5, 1702, sold to Edward Boykin "of the Upper Parish of Isle of Wight one half of 800 acres of land in the Quit Rents of 1704. Edwards wife was evidently a daughter of William Gwaltney, Sr., who made his will in Surry, March 28, 1728, same probated March 2, 1732. (Will Book 8 #257). Wm. Gwaltney gave his "Grandson Edward Boykin one cow". This was Edward Boykin, Jr., who returned an account of the estate of his father, Edward Boykin, March 1730-31 in the Isle of Wight (C11-51).

The following information was researched in 1981 by Joe Boykin, 1202 Main St., Teague, Texas 75860.
"Edward Boykin, Sr. was the first member of his family to settle in the colony of VA. His parents are unknown Traditional records relate that Edward Boykin, Sr., came to the Colony of VA from Caernarvonshire, Wales, but this is unsupported traditon. Ewen, in his "Surnames of Hungingdonshire, England," (page 164) lists among the taxpayers of Huntingdonshire, one John Boykyn in 1327 A.D. The abbreviation of Joh'n could be meant for Johann and connect his origin with Continental Europe. A search of the Congressional Records of Wales failed to show a single Boykin surname. "It seems most probable....the emigrant to America (Edward Boykin) did descend from the small family in Huntingdonshire more directly but of course also from the Flemish branches more remotely." (Heraldry-Boykin, A Study by Florence B. Culver - In her research of published material at the Library of Congress, Washington, D.C. 1942)

Other printed material states that Edward Boykin, Sr. was born in Huntingdonshire, England ca. 1650. He came to the Colony of VA possibly with relatives or friends. A search of passenger listings of ships landing at VA ports in the decade of 1668-1678 did not show the name of Edward Boykin, Sr., However, he may have come to the Colony of VA as a Colony member and as such was included in his benefactor's land patent.

Incidental informatrion of Boykin in Colonial New England is of interest in family history. Research by Anne Boykin Murphy (Mrs. Robert Neal) recorded in her book "History and Genealogy of the Boykin Family, pages 3, 4, and 5, lists one Jarvis Boykin who emigrated from Charing Cross, Co., Kent, England to Charlestown, MA in 1635-36. He was a carpenter by profession. Jarvis Boykin married and had issue as follows: Nathaniel, born 1641, baptized 11 Sept., 1642; Bethiah born 1643; Sarah born 1646. The family connections of Jarvis Boykin and Edward Boykin, Sr., have not been ascertained. However, a logical conclusion is that both men descended from the Boykin Family of Joh'n Boykyn Family of Huntingdonshire. It is probable that Edward Boykin, Sr. came to VA also from county Kent as many early emigrants embarked from said county to Virginia during the Colonial period.

Students of medieval history will recall the names of William the Conqueror who defeated the English at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.; of Alfred the Great, King of Wessex and Overlord of England 871-899 who is said to be the father of the first English Navy and who is considered to be the father of English prose literature; and of Charlemagne, King of the Franks, 768-814. See later Ann Gwaltney Boykin's ancestral connections with Captain Thomas Warren, Sr. and his parents of Kent county England.

Edward Boykin, Sr. was a land owner and planter in Isle of Wight Co., VA in 1678 for on 3 July 1678, Nicholas Cobb sold Thomas Tooke land adjacent to James Manning and Edward Boykin (17c-580). He patented five hundred and twenty acres on the Blackwater in 1685 and Arthur Allen sold him five hundred and twenty-five acres at Blackwater, 9 Aug. 1692 (1d.-607). Also Arthur Allen of "Lawnes Creek Parish, Surry County," on 5 Feb. 1702, sold to Edward Boykin "of the upper Parish of Isle of Wight one half of eight hundred acres of land granted said Arthur Allen and Wm. Edward, late of James City" (1d-649). Edward Boykin held eleven hundred acres of land in the Quit Rents of 1704 (1d.-698). That truth is better than fiction is proven in this case because some writers gave "Ann Marshall" as his wife without proof whereas his wife was evidently a daughter of William Gwaltney, Sr., who made his will in Surry county, 28 March 1728, same probated 2 March 1732. Will Book 8, page 257 (Ref. Historical Southern Families, Vol. II, page 116). William Gwaltney gave his "GRANDSON EDWARD BOYKIN one cow." This is Edward Boykin, Jr., who returned the final account of estate of Edward Boykin March 1730-31 in Isle of Wight Co., Va. (C11-51). (Historical Southern Families, Vol. III, page 102) by John B. Boddie. This only proves that a daughter of Wm Gwaltney's married a Boykin, does not specify which Boykin.

Edward Boykin, Sr. died in Isle of Wight Co.,VA. Date of will 4 Jan. 1725-26, probated by son, John Boykin, 27 May 1728, Will Book 3, page 98, Isle of Wight Co.,VA. The will reads "I give unto my loving son John Boykin the plantation whereon I now live and all land thereto belonging being five hundred and thirty acres, to my said son and his heirs forever. I give unto my loving wife, Ann Boykin, all the rest of my estate, goods an chattels during her natural life and at her death it is my wish that it be equally divided among all of my children and lastly I do appoint my loving wife, Ann Boykin and my son, John Boykin my whole and sole executors of this my last will and testament." (Hist.Sou.Families, Vol.II,page 103 by Boddie)

Ann Boykin died soon after her husband; also John Boykin died soon after his father who had given him the plantation "whereon I now live" and prior to settlement of his father, Edward Boykin, Sr.'s estate. Final account of his estate was returned by Edward Boykin, Jr. The following account is from Isle of Wight Co., Court Records: "In pursuance of an order of the Court, dated 22 Feb. 1730-31, having stated and settled all debts and credits relating to the estate of Edward Boykin, deceased and amended all errors in the accouint of Edward Boykin, Jr., administrator of the estate of Edward Boykin, deceased; as aforesaid I've found the balance to be eighten pounds nine shillings and eight pence due legatee. Errors accepted. Signed Francis Williamson and John Dunkley, auditors" Will book 3, page 98, Isle of Wight, VA.

John Boykin died intestate, as an inventory of his estate was appraised by Francis Williamson, John Dunkley and Edward Harris and recorded 23 Feb. 1729 (c11-57) Will Book 3, page 255 Isle of Wight Co., VA. The records do not show his children but a search of Isle of Wight deeds should show who deeded his land. See later. The children of his brothers...Edward, William and Thomas have been ascertained. (Historical Southern Families, Vol. III, page 103). John Boddie.

The lapse of time between John Boykyn, "the tax payer" of Huntingdonshire in 1327 A.D., and the birth of Edward Boykin, Sr. consist of some three hundred and twenty-three years and spans possibly about ten generations. Research, so far as is known has not bridged this gap of overseas, English history of Boykin. Perhaps there are descendants who may wish to pursue the quest. It seems that Charing Cross County, Kent, England would be the logical place to begin the search as the aforementioned Jarvis Boykin emigrated from the county to Charlestown, MA in 1635-36. Age-wise it appears Jarvis Boykin was probably one generation older than Edward Boykin, Sr.

The genealogy of the maternal side of our history has been confirmed through Ann Gwaltney Boykin, wife of Edward Boykin, Sr.(they had the wrong Boykin) * They were married in VA. Ann, born ca.1686 was the daughter of William and Alice Flake Gwaltney, Surry Co., VA. One item in will of William Gwaltney,Sr. states: "I give my grandson Edward Boykin one cow." The will of Edward Boykin Sr. refers to wife Ann and son John Boykin, exeutors of his last will and testament; will filed by John Boykin, 27 May 1728, Lineage Book, Vol. XXI NSDF&P of America of America. As John boykin died before his father's will was recorded, the final account of Edward Boykin Sr.'s estate was returned by Edward Boykin, Jr., March 1730-31 Isle of Wight Co., VA. Will Book 3, page 98.

Alice Flake and William Gwaltney, Sr. were married in VA. Alice, born ca. 1656 was the daughter of Mathias and Alice Warren Mariott of Surry Co., VA. Margaret Marriott's name is confimed in the Will of her father, Mathias Marriott who states "I give my daughter Margaret Flake a book of Dienyty". It is said that Margaret Marriott Flake was born about 1690. Researchers of the Gwaltney-Boykin lineage have pondered the 1690 birth year of Margaret Marriott Flake and conclude that she was born at an earlier date, possibly ca. 1656. Margaret was the second of four children.

Will of Mathias Marriott was probated Sept. 22, 1702 (R.B.1694-1708, page 374), Surry Co., VA. Deposition of Alice Marriott, his wife, Sept. 15, 1677. Agreement between Jane Warren, relict of Thomas Warren, deceased,- - Surry County, VA dated Sept. 24, 1670 (Bk. 1, page 377).

Capt. Thomas Warren, Sr. the first of his line to emigrate to the Colony of Va. was the son of William Warren (1597-1631) and wife Catherine Gookin, Ripple County, Kenty, England. The records show he was baptized 30 Jan. 1624. He died prior to 24 Sept. 1670 in Surry County, VA. Will Book 1, page 377, Surry Co., Va. Ref: "Adventures of Purse and Persons by Annie Lash Jester, page 192. Capt. Warren's pedigree goes back to Alfred the Great and Charlemagne.

Capt. Thomas Warren built the famous brick structure in Surry County, VA now called the "Warren House" owned and operated under the auspicies of the Association for the Preservation of Virginia Antiquities. The Warren House, first brick home in VA was built in 1651-52 on land purchased from Thomas Rolfe, sone of John Rolfe and his wife Pocahantas, whose father was Indian Chief Powhatan.

The records show Capt. Warren's father died in 1631 when young Thomas was about ten years of age. His mother married/second John Sewall of Halstead, England. Following the death of his father it seems Thomas Warren spent much time with members of the Daniel Gookin Family, relatives of his mother's side of the family. At age sixteen, Thomas came to VA with the Daniel Gookin II family in 1640. He is listed among the persons transported by Daniel Gookin II to his land patent on the northside of the Rappahanock River. Daniel Gookin II received no land for transporting Thomas Warren as he had money to pay his way and purchase 450 acres of land. Capt. Thomas Warren was a member of the House of Burgess of the Virginia Legislature and served four terms in that Surry County, VA body. (Historical Genealogies, Page 244, 245). Capt. Thomas Warren was married three times although his first wife's name is unknown; they had two children: William, who died prior to 1670 and Alice, who married Mathias Marriott."...................................................................................

NOTE: Recent researchers (Nov. 2003) stated that Ann Gwaltney could not have been the wife of Edward Boykin, Sr. They say it is more likely that she was the wife of John Boykin, son of Edward Sr. * Your compiler is no longer showing Ann Gwaltney as the wife of this Edward Boykin, Sr.

Generation No. 2
       2. John2 Boykin (Edward1) was born Abt. 1678 in Isle of Wight County, Virginia, and died 05 May 1729 in Isle of Wight County, Virginia. He married Ann Gwaltney Abt. 1706 in Isle of Wight, Virginia, daughter of William Gwaltney and Alice Flake. She was born Abt. 1690 in Isle ofWight County, Virginia, and died Abt. 1712 in Isle of Wight County, Virginia.

Notes for John Boykin:
John's estate was recorded 23 Feb. 1728 and final account of his estate was presented 27 March 1730-31, Isle of Wight Co., Va.

Some researchers show Ann Williamson as wife of this John, however more research leads one to believe that Anne Gwaltney because of her age was the wife of this John and not Edward, Sr.

Note: Ann Gwaltney's great-grandmother Alice Warren was born in 1645, per her 1677 deposition at age 32. There is no way 4 generations could squeeze into less than the probable 45 years between the two women. Time constraints lead to the following lineage:

Alice Warren, b. 1645 mar. Matthias Marriott
Margaret Marriott, b. ca. 1660 mar. Robert Flake, Jr.
Alice Flake, b. ca. 1675 mar. William Gwaltney
Ann Gwaltney, b. 1690 mar. someone named Boykin and had a son named Edward Boykin mentioned in grandfather Gwaltney's will. This seems to indicate that the women married at the age of 15.

Edward Boykin, Sr. was having children in the 1670-1680 time period but their mother was not Ann Gwaltney. It is more likely she was married to John Boykin, son of Edward, Sr.

Burial: Abt. 07 May 1729, Isle of Wight County, Virginia

Notes for Ann Gwaltney:
Ann Gwaltney was the great-great-granddaughter of Capt.Thomas Warren, Sr. through which we can go to William the Conqueror, William the Great and Charlemagne, as well as the Signors of the Magna Carta. Descendants can qualify for membership in the Jamestowne Society and many other lineage societies.

Millions of Americans descend from Royalty because of the pattern of social levelling common to most Western European nations. Younger sons or daughters of kings became or married nobles. Their children married "gentry" - knights, manorial lords, gentlemen with coats-of-arms, baronets, lairds, and seigneurs. Younger sons or daughters of the gentry became or married merchants, clergymen, Puritan, Quakers, or Huguenot leaders, university fellows, bureaucrats, or professional soldiers. Members of this last group immigrated to the American colonies.

The Boykin line in this country is pretty well documented, as are the ancesral lines of Anne Gwaltney back to the European royal families. There are dozens of people who may have gone into the Order of Charlemagne on the strength of the Boykin-Gwaltney marriage; however, there seems to be some errors. Anne Gwaltney more than likely was married to John Boykin, son of Edward, Sr. See notes under son John. No marriage record can be found to verify her marriage to John (not his father Edward).

Notes for Anne Marshall:
Anne was the daughter of John Marshall who died in 1784 and gave the property where the present Court House is located to Francis and his daughter. Francis was a Second Lieutenant in the First Regiment of the Virginia Line, commanded by Patrick Henry, during the Revolution. He was Sheriff of Isle of Wight in 1792 and died in1805. About 1800 he proposed to build a Court House, Clerk's Office and Jail on his farm located on the Western Branch of the Nansemond River about eight miles from Smithfield; and offered to exchange that property for the Court House property in Smithfield. After the exchange was made the Smiths claimed that inasmuch as the Court House property in Smithfield was no longer used for public purposes, it had therefore reverted to them. Francis brought an action of ejectment in the District Court at Suffolk but lost the case. He bequeathed the property in question to his son Francis Marshall Boykin and his daughter Amice who married James Johnson, M.C. 1813-1820.

Francis Boykin made his Will the 7th of October, 1803 and same was probated 2nd April 1805. He mentions his daughter Nancy Boykin, sons John and Francis M. Boykin, and the executors were son Francis and Andrew Woodley.

Francis Marshall Boykin was Lieutenant Colonel of the Isle of Wight regiment during the war of 1812. He married Fannie Godwin, daughter of Anthony Godwin and Medora his wife, also a Godwin, daughter of Jonathon Godwin who made his will in 1762. An thony was a son of Jeremiah Godwin and his wife Mary Holladay who were married May 18, 1748.
