Old Tombstones in York and James City Counties

Lyon G. Tyler

William and Mary College Quarterly Historical Papers, Vo. 2,
No. 2., (Oct., 1893, pp. 78-86

OLD TOMBSTONES IN YORK AND JAMES
CITY COUNTIES.

BY THE EDITOR.

The valuable paper of Prof. J. Leslie Hall, published in the 11th
vol. of the Virginia Historical Society Collections (enriched by the
suggestive notes of Mr. R. A. Brock), entitled "Ancient Epitaphs and
Inscriptions in York and James City Counties," admits of some cor-

rections and additions:

p. 100. The fragments of the Thornton slab represent the tomb of
Anna Maria Jones, daughter of Rev. Rowland Jones, first minister of
Bruton Parish and ancestor of Mrs. Martha Washington. She married
1. William Timson, 2. William Barber, 3. Edmund Scarburg, 4. John
Thornton. Her age, 76, is correctly stated.


p. 102. The tomb of Mildred Jameson, whose maiden name was Smith,
a descendant of Major Lawrence Smith, has the Jameson arms impaled with
Smith (See paper on "Temple Farm."0

p. 102. Tomb of William Gooch: "It was originally within the
enclosed Temple burying ground." It is still within it.

p. 103. The Ring monuments have arms: -- These arms, like others,
are not in Burke. They seem to be: in chief a label with five points,
a bend bearing three lozenges conjoined.

Page 81.

Joseph Ring was one of the gentlemen recommended by the Governor as
suitable for appointment to the Council (1699) -- Saisbury MSS. Joseph
Ring, in his will probed May 24, 1703, calls Edmund Berkeley and
Matthew Page "brothers". Joseph Ring's wife was Sarah Berkeley,
daughter of Edmund Berkeley, who died before 1674.

pp. 100, 102, 103, 104, 105, 107 --
The Nelson, Gooch, Bacon, Burwell, Digges, Cole arms, as represented
by Mr. Brock in his notes to Prof. Hall's paper, agree with the
monuments mentioned. [But see correction as to Gooch, p. 141.]

p. 105. The tombstone of Elizabeth Bacon, who was a daughter of
Richard Kingsmill, bears the following arms: Dexter, the arms assigned
in burke, to John Kingsmill, Judge of the Common Pleas, died 1504.
Berry's Genealogies, Co. Hants., shows that Sir William5 Kingsmill
(Richard1, John2, Sir John3, Sir William4) m. Ann, da. and coheir of
William Wilks, of Hodwell. Co. Warwick, and wid. of Anthony Dryden of
Co. Northampton and had 1. Thomas6, 2. Richard6, (living in 1634), 3.
Robert6, 4. Ferdinand6, 5. Francis6, 6. John6. Sinister, the arms
of Mrs. Bacon's first husband, Col. William Tayloe, Esq., of King's
Creek -- Vert, a sword erect or, betw. two lions ramp., endorsed erm.
[William Tayloe was uncle of William Tayloe, of Richmond County. A
book in the College Library, once belonging to John Tayloe of "Mt.
Airy", in Richmond County, Va., has the same arms as are on the tomb
of Elizabeth Bacon, above mentioned.]

p. 108. The tomb of Cole Digges reads:
"This Monument was Erected
by Colonel Edward Digges to ye
Memory of a most indulgent Father
the Honble Colonel Digges, Esq.,
who * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
Died in the LIIId Year of his Age."

Page 82.

p. 107. "To the memory of Edward Digges, Esq., sonne of Dudley
Digges, &c.," should read "To the Memory of Edward Diggs, Esq., &c."

p. 84. Bruton Parish Church is erroneously called "Christ Church."
The records show that it was never known otherwise than by the name
of the parish.

p. 85. The mural tablet to the memory of Hon. Daniel Parke is
correctly represented without arms. The Col. Parke of Mr. Brock's
note was the son of Col. Parke of the mural tablet, which was erected
by John Custis, who married his daughter.

p. 92. Fragments of the Ludwell slab mentioned on page 82 bear
armorial carvings. They are the same as on the tomb to the joint
memories of Thomas Ludwell, Richard Kempe and Sir Thomas Lunsford.

Witnessed by James Phillips, John Korby, John Chin? or Phin?, John Pittman..

Family Lore says Robert "Thomas", John & Joseph Wilks, sons of John Wilks of
Shrewsbury, Shropshire, England, sentenced to transportation to Virginia, by Cromwell, their father, John was executed.

25 Feb 1653 - Charles City Co., VA Ferdinando Austin - transportation
for Thomas Wilks.

Robert "Thomas" Wilkes came to America around 1650 and settled in New Kent County, VA. He was imported by Fernando Austin into Charles City Co., VA on 2/25/1653, for which a headright was claimed totaling 1200 acres. Patent book 3, pp 369, Virginia Land Grants. Thomas Wilkes was the only "Wilkes listed in the book "Early Virginia Immigrrants 1623-66, Richmond, VA by George Cabell Greer. In an immigration list found at Raleigh, NC Courthouse, it listed the ship "Vincent" sailed 8/8/1660 to Virginia from London. It stated the owner/captain of the ship as John Harrison. Thomas was listed as E190/47/1 Thomas Wilks for aqua vita. Is this another Thomas Wilks or the same??

Thomas Wilkes participated in, but was not a major party thereto, in Bacon's rebellion in 1676. Thomas Wilkes was sued on 6/14/1684 over land in Rappahannoc Co., VA in which he was in possesion. Land was at the mouth of the Morattico Creek, and was 600 acres. Land was in the tenure of Mr. Robert Beckingham and Thomas Wilkes and was claimed in behalf of Giles Cale, deceased, who proported to own it and to have it given as a legacy to Nathaniel Cale, Son & heir. Thomas seems to be the head of a long line of Wilkes Descendants in the USA.

Wilkes, Thomas: Charles City County, VA Feb. 25. 1653. From the book "Early Virginia Families Along the James River" Thomas is one of 24 persons names. Ferdinado Austin receives 1200 acres on James River for the transportation of these people.
