       4. George Tucker, born January 2, 1743 in Lunenburg County, Virginia; died Bef. September 1804 in Randolph County,North Carolina, Buried in Rowan Co (Salisbury). He was the son of 8. George R.Tucker and 9. Sarah. He married 5. Maria Dorthea 1764.

Notes for George Tucker:
He is listed in Roster of Revolutionary soldiers in NC (page 344 #2726 Salisbury District) as a patriot, having signed the oath of allegiance and furnished supplied. He lived in Mecklenburg Co. N.C. in the part that is now Cabarrus Co. near the Reed Gold mine, but he owned land on both the east and west sides of Rocky River, the east side being what is now Stanly County Most of George's children lived in Cabarrus County. However, sons Leonard and Peter, along with sons in laws James Little and Leonard Cagle, lived in Montgomery Co. That part that is now Stanly. George may have been twice married, but there is no record of his first wife's name. A John (Jon) Tucker who owned land adjoining the Tucker heirs but was not mentioned in the distribution and settlement of George Tucker's estate may have been a son by his first wife? His second wife, Maria Dorothea, is proven by her giving her consent as his wife to conveyance dated April term 1795. George and Maria Dorothea were married about 1764. George died before October 1804 as James Little and George Tucker, Jr. were appointed administrators of his estate at that time. Maria Dorothea died before September 1815, as the children sell her widow's dower land at that time.

Notes for James Little:
James, like his father, was very active in public affairs. It seems to have been handed down thru the generations as his son, John, was one of nine committeemen selected in 1841 to name the new county and county seat of Albemarle. According to the late Mrs. G. B. Reynolds of Albemarle, John named the county seat and they have always been very proud of the beautiful name of their city.
James was a very wealthy plantation owner and owned many slaves if a man's will can be an indication of his wealth. All of his children are named in his will and all were well established on their own plantations that he had given them. It becomes evident that they all lived very near each other.

A William Malone of Surry Co. Va. (Albemarle Parish) d. 1736 willed land to a son named John Malone and his heirs, indicating this John may have already had children at the 1736 date of William's demise. This John Malone lived in later Dinwiddie Co., Va. (actually he land he owned in 1746 became part of Dinwiddie). He married a lady named Elizabeth, and although no maiden name of Elizabeth has ever been proven, she is said to be by some a Elizabeth Bennett, d/o Richard Bennett. This John Malone's children (Wood Malone, Frederick Malone, Mary md. James Dozier, Jemima Malone md. George Tucker, and by some, Edward Davis Malone all later lived moved to Granville Co., NC which area became 1764 Bute/Warren Co.,NC area (and some into Georgia in proceeding generations. This line is the only line I find with a suggested Bennett connection.John Malone b. 1778 in Va. and died (thought to be 1860-70 in Merriwether Co., Ga.) married Gracie Eaves in Rutherford Co., NC 1800-this is the line of Ledford Bayles Malone, md. Melissa Mitchum and the parentage of John who md. Gracie Eaves is one of the Malones most have trouble identifying by documents a proven parentage.

The following is from the book ADVENTURES OF OUR ANCESTORS by Elma Jessie Croom Hooker (1989) (with whom I have corresponded with off and on through the years regarding the NEEDHAM family): from Randolph Co. Court Minutes, County Ct. of Common Pleas 1811-1826. Feb Ct. 1812 Letters of Administration on the Estate of Wm. TUCKER, dec'd. granted to Matilda TUCKER, his widow, and unto Nathaniel TUCKER, his son, who appeared and qualified and entered into bond.
25 Feb 1814 Nath'l. TUCKER of Moore Co. NC, Wm. NEEDHAM atty. for Lewis NEEDHAM of Maury Co. TN, Nathl. TUCKER, Johnson SPENCER, Enoch TUCKER, Benj. TUCKER & Matilda TUCKER, of Randolph Co. NC, for $83.66 h(an)d p(ai)d unto Matilda TUCKER during her natural life...land beginning at a stake on banks of N. Fork of Fork Creek, 200 acres granted to William TUCKER, dec'd...#94, 28 March 1796, and begins on the bank & in line to a post oak etc., to a corner of 300 acre tract & S. with the original line to a pine on bank of main creek & up said creek to N. Fork to the beginning, 244 acres. Matilda TUCKER, Nathaniel TUCKER, Johnson SPENCER, William TUCKER, Enoch TUCKER, Jesse TUCKER, Benjamin TUCKER & William NEEDHAM atty. for Lewis NEEDHAM, all legatees in the Estate of William TUCKER, dec'd.

This seems to indicate that the children you listed belonged to William TUCKER and his wife Matilda. However, tax rolls in Rowan Co., Iredell District, NC, list a George Tucker and (sons) George Jr., William and Nathl., so the William TUCKER of Randolph was quite likely son of this George.

Of William & Matilda TUCKER's children, Amy married Lewis W. NEEDHAM, Eliz. Ann married Johnson SPENCER, Wm. Jr. married Martha NEEDHAM, George married Nancy CALLICUTT, Jesse md. 1st a LOWDERMILK and 2nd Eliz. EDDLEMAN, Enoch md. (Nancy) Ann NEEDHAM, Nathaniel married Martha LARRANCE/LAWRENCE.

I am not a TUCKER descendant. However, the above Martha LAWRENCE was a sister of my 4th great-grandpa LAWRENCE, and I have researched her TUCKER descendants. Additionally, the mother of Martha LAWRENCE was, to the best of my knowledge (but proof positive is lacking), (Nancy) Ann NEEDHAM, so I have also dabbled with NEEDHAM research.

Amelia microfilm reel #55, Library of Virginia, 1736-1771. This is roughly the southern 2/3 of Amelia County. Prior to about 1735, this area was part of Prince George County. In other words, these individuals were residents of Prince George County the year before Amelia was carved out of Prince George.

Lunenburg, VA had, as we shall see, an important part in the struggle between the vestries and the Colonial Governors". "When the county was created in 1745 it embraced, in addition to its present area, the now comprised in Mecklenburg, Charlotte, Halifax, Pittsylvania, Henry, Franklin, and the greater part of Bedford and Campbell counties". "This great area was comprised in one parish and was named Cumberland. While Lunenburg County and Cumberland parish were created by the act of 1745, it was provided that they should come into existence 'from and immediately after the first day of May next'".

LUNENBURG COUNTY VIRGINIA WILLS 1746-1825 by Landon C. Bell Part 2 Transcriber's Note: Although the title of the book gives a range of years from 1746-1825, at least one abstract, No. 106, is of a will dated 1826 and filed in 1827. Very often in the published text, a parenthetical comment has an opening parenthesis but not a closing one. Closing parentheses have been added in this transcription.

Originally, before Amelia was formed as a county in 1735 (not 1717 as you show) it was under the jurisdiction of the Anglican Parish of Bristol (Bristol Parish) which was formed in 1642. (Bristol Parish included an area 40 miles long and 20 miles wide, with 430 families and 1,100 tithables.)

Actually, when Amelia County was formed in 1735, it was designated as Raleigh Parish. And it was not until 1749 that Nottoway Parish was established.

Therefore, in conducting research, one would rightly search the Bristol Parish records for those who lived in the area before 1735, that became Amelia County in 1735.

I also show Thomas Clay as living in Prince George County, Virginia, year 1715, in the area that later became Amelia County, Virginia. The earliest documented residents, year 1712, were Robert Tucker, John Tally, William Tucker, William Coleman, and James Tucker.

Notes for Robert Tucker:
Harold Lawrence writes in his book THE TUCKER BAND, Tuckers and Related Families, page 2: Before 1712, Capt. Tucker had surveyed and patented land in Prince George, Co, VA, in the area that later became Amelia County. According to Abstracts Land Patents, on 7-15-1717, Robert Tucker patented 141 acres in Prince George County for fifteen shillings. He probably gave or sold this parcel of land to his oldest son before 1736. It is noteworthy that although Capt. Robert Tucker patented land in Prince George County as well as Amelia County, it is unlikely he moved from county to county. He probably lived his entire life in the same area while the counties were divided and subdivided.

During 1727, Capt. Tucker acquired some 500 additional acres on Wotocamaick Creek and Middle Creek. In October, 1741, he deeded to son John 165 & 1/2 acres for L100; to son George 200 acres for L70; and to son Robert 165 acres for L100. In August, 1744, he acquired 176 acres in Amelia County (after Amelia County was formed from Brunswick and Prince George Counties in 1734). Capt. Robert Tucker died in Amelia County in 1750. His wife, followed by his son Daniel, inherited this parcel of land. Also named in his will were children Joseph, Sarah, and Robert. An abstract of the will, as found in Will Book 1, Amelia County, VA (173501761), p. 63 is as follows:

"Robert Tucker, written 26 September, 1744; proven 18 May, 1750. Wit. John Cordie, Jr., Henry (x) Hasten, John Powell. Ex. son Robert. Leg. wife Martha, land and plantation on where I live for life; then to son Daniel; son Joseph, daughter Sarah Clay; son Robert; rest of personal est. to be equally divided between my children. No appraisement to be made. Slaves: Negro men Joe, Dick; Negro girl, Sall."

An inventory of the estate of Capt. Robert Tucker was made on 3-15-1750 and is recorded in Will Book 1, pg 73 of Amelia County, VA. It includes the following possessions of Capt. Robert Tucker:

"1 Negro fellow named Joe, 1 Negro fellow named Dick, 1 Negro girl named Sall, 2 feather beds and furniture, 3 sheets, 2 pillows, 9 leather chairs, 2 large black leather trunks, 1 oval table, 1 square table, 2 large old..., 1 pair pistols and holsters, 1 fence sword, 1 old hand iron, 1 pair stillards, 1 pair fire tongs, shovel..., 1 iron pot rack, 3 iron pots, 1 brass kettle,..., 1 frying pan, 1 box iron,..., 2 iron wedges, 2 narrow adze (?), 3 flat dishes, 1 deep dish, 9 new plates, 5 old plates, 1 doz. new spoons, 9 old spoons, 2 old pewter tankards, 1 old looking glass, 1 drinking glass, 3 butter p..., 1 cane sieve, 1 sifter, 1 grindstone, 1 candlesticks, 1 Bible, 1 Testament, 1 gallon stone jug, 6 glass bottles, 2 cider casks, 1 beer cask,..., 1 pr. new cart wheels, 1 brush, 1 old bay horse, 1 young horse, 12 head of cattle, 5 calves, 11 head of sheep, 17 head of old hogs, 29 shoats of about a year old, 2 pewter basons, 1 ivory comb, 1 horn comb.

The parents of the Robert Tucker who married Elizabeth Coleman were Thomas Tucker (c1620-1677) and Edy Hentinge of Norfolk Co., VA. Thomas came to VA in 1635 under "contract" to Capt. William Tucker of Elizabeth City., VA. Although some have interpreted the term "contract" to mean indenture, I think it more likely meant that
Thomas Tucker, then a teenager, was sent to VA by his parents to live under the care and instruction of Capt. William Tucker. I suspect, but can not prove, that Thomas was likely the son of William Tucker's older brother, Thomas, who lived in London.

Son Capt Robert Tucker b c 1645 m. Elizabeth Coleman d. 21 Dec 1722 Norfolk Co, VA lived in Charles City, Prince Georges Co, VA. His son Capt. Robert Tucker, (1676/7-1750), Charles City, Co, VA. m.

Robert Tucker appears to be the first of his family in Charles City County, Virginia. He patented land in Charles City in 1680 on the North side of the Blackwater River in what is now Prince George. In 1694 Robert Coleman, Robert Tucker and Elizabeth his wife, deeded 50 acres of land to Francis Hobson and deed recited that Daniel Sanborn sold said 50 acres to Robert Tucker in 1676 and both endorsed a lease by Robert Tucker and his wife to John Butler, (D. B. 1694, page 555) Robert Tucker obtained a judgement against Francis Tucker for 1717 lbs. tobacco. (Id 426)

Robert Tucker held 400 acres in Prince George in the Quit Rents of 1704. Joseph Tucker held 200 acres, Francis Tucker 100 acres and Elizabeth Tucker, probably a widow, held 212 acres. Robert may have also held property in Surry, for an inventory of the estate of a Robert Tucker was recorded there Aug 15, 1722, by Thomas Collier, Thomas Cocke and Arthur Allen (BK 7 415). Arthur Allen's mother was Alice Tucker, sister of a Daniel Tucker of York County.

Notes for Capt. Robert Tucker, Jr.:
My book TUCKER TRAILS THROUGH SOUTHSIDE VIRGINIA, starts with Robert Tucker (d c1704) and wife Elizabeth Coleman, and continues with his presumed son Capt. Robert Tucker Sr, (c1677-1750), and his seven sons, James, Robert Jr, George, John, William, Joseph and Daniel, and their descendants, as they migrated up to about 1850, through the southside Virginia counties of Charles City, Prince George, Amelia, Nottoway, Prince Edward, Lunenburg, Mecklenburg, Halifax and Pittsylvania.
It has a reference only to the children of son Daniel, including daughter Martha Tucker who married David Ellington, and to daughter Sally Tucker who married Daniel Ellington. More information on the Ellingtons was provided to me in 1988 and 1990 by Alice A. Jones, 4961 Mill Brook Dr., Dunwoody, GA 30338.

Daniel Tucker and wife Elizabeth to Robert Bolling.
Also 1768 John and Sarah Clay to Daniel Tucker.
In Amelia Co. tax list 1744 two Charles Clays; Thomas, John, and James Clay.
This John Clay was married to Sarah Tucker dt of Robert and Martha Tucker. John d. 1782 Amelia Co. but had no dt. Elizabeth. In fact, none of those early Clays had an Elizabeth married to a Tucker, although their Elizabeths all are married to others. Of course, none of the researchers has
found an Elizabeth Tucker, which doesn't mean there wasn't one but I'm afraid it's not likely.

Obviously there were connections between Clays and Tuckers, and unless we find that this IGI information came from some Bible record or other source, I would be inclined to believe someone just assumed that Daniel Tucker's wife Elizabeth may have been a Clay because his sister Sarah Tucker married John Clay. Perhaps the wording on some old deed or record confused someone, such as referring to a niece or nephew as "cousin."

The 400 pounds of tobacco were distributed before the document was signed and sealed. Signed Thomas Tucker. Witnessed Thomas MUNNI, Robert KETTELL."

Thomas Tucker (c1620-1677) and Edy Hentinge of Norfolk Co., VA. Thomas came to VA in 1635 under "contract" to Capt. William Tucker of Elizabeth City., VA. Although some have interpreted the term "contract" to mean indenture, I think it more likely meant that
Thomas Tucker, then a teenager, was sent to VA by his parents to live under the care and instruction of Capt. William Tucker. I suspect, but can not prove, that Thomas was likely the son of William Tucker's older brother, Thomas, who lived in London.

Thomas Tucker of London, older brother of Capt. William Tucker. It is known that Thomas had daughters Alice bc1616 (named after his mother, Alice Pelham) and Memory bc1623 as well as a son named Thomas Jr b1614. All three may have ended up in VA. Memory Tucker may have been the Memory Tucker who married John Southern who was an immediate neighbor of Capt. William Tucker at Kiccotan. Thomas Jr. may have been the "indentured servant" who came to VA in 1635 on the Globe and subsequently lived with Capt. William Tucker before marrying Edy Hentinge in 1640 and settling in Norfolk Co.

Keep in mind that circumstantial evidence is all that links Alice Tucker with Memory, Thomas jr. and Thomas Sr. of London. However,
brides were hard to find in the early decades of the Virginia colony and "arranged" or "contract" marriages with the English kin of VA planters were among the solutions to the shortage.

Notes for William Tucker:
Captian William Tucker first sailed to America in 1610 on the ship Mary & James. He sailed again to American in 1619 on the ship Bova Nova. He was a member of the Virginia Company and survivor of Jamestown. Both he and his wife Mary were on the "List of the Living and Dead" dated February 16, 1623 .Daughter Elizabeth was born at Jamestown in August 1623. He also is list on the ship passanger list of the George 1624.

From 1623 to 1624 he was a member of the House Burgesses and on March 4, 1615, he was appointed to the "Council". Sometime around 1626 William moved to Bermuda for a few years but soon returned to Virginia. In 1633 he was commissioned Superindendant of Virgina by King James of England. His name appears on the monument at Jamestown.

Capt. Tucker's land, a square mile known as "The Plantation" located on the James River.

In 1619, 3,000 acres were assigned at Hampton for the use of the company, and 100 acres for a glebe;* and 1,500 acres were reserved for the common lands. These lands were on the easterly side of Southamp- ton River, and stretched along Mill Creek as far as the Bay. They were at first only leased for a term of years. In 1625, there were 349 inhabi- tants at Elizabeth City, and Captain William Tucker was commandant of the plantation. The first minister was Rev. William Mease (1610- 1620), the next was Francis Bolton, in 1621; the next, George Keith, 1623-25, and the next was Jonas Stockton. "Mr. Fenton minister," died at Elizabeth City September 5, 1624.


*Opechancanough's town, Pamunkey, was situated at the junction of the Pamunkey and the Mattaponi. In June, 1623, Capt. William Tucker, with twelve others, were sent in a shallop under pretense of making peace with Opechancanough. The whites treacherously shot forty Indians, including three of the chiefs, and they flattered themselves that Opechancanough was one of them. But they were in error, for the chief survived for many years, and lived to inflict another massacre in 1644. In 1646, he was captured by Sir William Berkeley at the head of a party of horse, and was taken to Jamestown. Here he was shot by a soldier through the back. In 1629, Col. William Claiborne landed a detachment near the site of the Pamunkey town, and defeated the Indians at Candayack, which he afterwards patented. In 1661 he removed to the vicinity, and lived at Romancoke. But previous to this Capt. John West had removed to the vicinity, and on Herman's map of Virginia the settlement at the site of the old Pamunkey town is called Delaware. It was afterwards named West Point. Up the Pamunkey river, some miles above West Point, a fragment of the old Pamunkey tribe is still resident.

For some really new information about "early Tuckers" in Elizabeth City County, VA you will want to read two of my articles in "Tidewater Virginia Families," the August/September 2002 and November/December 2002 issues. The titles afre "John Chandler, 1610 Immigrant and Some of His Descedants," Parts IV and V. These articles show that Charles Tucker, son of Robert Tucker, likely great-grandson of immigrant Captain/Merchant William Tucker (1589-1644) m. Phebe Chandler, dau. of John Chandler III (ca. 1650-1692). Charles, d. by 1729, was the father of Anothony from whom many Tuckers have already traced their descent.

Phebe's line was 1610 immigrant John Chandler (I), John (II), John (III), Phebe.

Although I descend from the line of Robert, brother of John II, I am interested in the Captain William Tucker family because I would like to be able to determine if Captain Tucker's three children (William, Thomas and Mary, named in his 1642 will, probated 1644 in England) - or any of them - settled in Virginia. The family lived within 1 mile (sometimes less) of immigrant John Chandler and his family on the Hampton-Newport News waterfront. Moreover, the wife of John Chandler II was named Mary and may well have been Mary Tucker. A John Tucker - about whom some dubious claims have been made - was among the headrights of John Chandler II in Northumberland County in January 1656/7.

Some Tucker researchers are satisied that Thomas Tucker who settled in Lower Norfolk in the mid-1600's was Captain William's son, but I would like to see better proof.

Captain William's son, William, is referred to by Dr. Norma Tucker as "William of Warwick". She lists John of Westmoreland as his son.


Capt. William Tucker died at sea in 1643/44 after returning to England to help the Royalist cause in the English Civil War. His will named three surviving children, William Jr, Thomas and Mary and his second wife, Frances Rogers. First wife Mary Tompson was the mother of all William's children including an oldest daughter, Elizabeth who had married but died before her father wrote his will in 1642.


Capt. William Tucker was born in 1589, but he was born in London (not Cornwall), the son of John Tucker Jr. (b1546) and Alice Pelham. His baptism was recorded in St. Nicholas Acons Parish on 6 Apr 1589. He had older brothers named John and Thomas, a younger brother named Robert and younger sisters named Alice and Susan. His father, John Tucker, was a member of the Merchant Taylors' Company of London whose members were among the early financial backers of The Virginia Company. Ralphe Hamor, Jr. of London and Jamestown (and author in 1614 of one of the first books written on the Jamestown Colony) was Capt. William Tucker's first cousin. Hamor's father was the leader of the Merchant Taylors' Company.


Capt. William Tucker and John Tucker of Westmoreland were not related. John of Westmoreland was an immigrant who appears to have been a close relative (nephew perhaps) of Walter Tucker, tobacco merchant of Lyme Regis, Dorset.

Capt. William Tucker died at sea in 1643/44 after returning to England to help the Royalist cause in the English Civil War. His will named three surviving children, William Jr, Thomas and Mary and his second wife, Frances Rogers. First wife Mary Tompson was the mother of all William's children including an oldest daughter, Elizabeth who had married but died before her father wrote his will in 1642.



Notes for Mary Elizabeth Thompson:
Listed on the "Living and Dead List" at Jamestown.

Capt. William Tucker first sailed to America 1610 aboard the ship Mary & James.

Sailed again to Elizabeth City aboard the ship named Bova Nova in 1619 and again on the ship named George 1624.
       
Children of William Tucker and Mary Thompson are:
              i.       William Tucker, Jr., born 1618; died 1653 in Warwick, Virginia; married (1) Mary; married (2) Frances Roberts

Notes for William Tucker, Jr.:
Captain William's son, William, is referred to by Dr. Norma Tucker as "William of Warwick". She lists John of Westmoreland as his son.

" 'It is possible that John Tucker of Cople Parish is a son of Captain William Tucker of Jamestown', believed one writer, but research on both Capt. William Tucker and William Tucker of Warwick show John to be a PROVEN son of William Tucker of Warwick and grandson of Capt. William Tucker. A merchant, John Tucker lived at Tucker Hill, Westmoreland County, VA, and married Rose/Rosanna (probably STURMAN) who married (2)Thomas Gerard; married (3)John Newton."


              ii.       Elizabeth Tucker, born August 1623; died 1642.

Notes for Elizabeth Tucker:
Capt. William Tucker died at sea in 1643/44 after returning to England to help the Royalist cause in the English Civil War.

John Tucker Jr. was the son of John Tucker Sr. (c1520-1546) and Jane ____. After Jane Tucker was widowed, she married Roger Hamor in London in 1547. Thus John Tucker Sr. and Ralphe Hamor Sr. were half-brothers.

Based on very sketchy information, it appears that John Tucker Sr. "may" have been the son of Richard Tucker of Mortenhamstead, Devon. This, however, is far from being proven.
