A few year back I discovered a Cutberth Williamson in Henrico County and if I remember correctly he was part of a Coroner's inquest in 1664 and possibly a Coroner. He was born at least before 1643. Some years later there was a Cuthbert Coleman from Dinwiddie Co Va that had become the Coroner of that County and I had seen possible connections to this Cuthbert Williamson through another Cuthbert Williamson in Surry County. The Cuthbert Coleman below was not the Cuthbert that was the son of Thomas Williamson and Mrs Carter. If he were related he would have been the brother of Thomas. The will below puts both John and Cuthbert both in Va abt 1680. This makes me think that they are all sons of the ealier Cuthbert in Henrico County. I go back to a another yet unknown John Williamson born abt 1712 who was the son of one of these Williamson's who married Martha Tucker the daughter of Joseph Tucker and Martha Coleson
An interesting connection is from the will of John Williamson:
Surry County; from the book Surry County, Virginia,
Wills, Estate Accounts, and Inventories, 1730, 1800
by Lyndon H. Harte III, pp4-5
Williamson, John of Southwark Parish, Surry Co., will
dated 30 Jan 1731, rec 17 May 1732. Cuthbert Williamson,and Robert Green, executors. Daughters: Elizabeth , wife of Hallom Sturdivant; Susanna Rottenbury, wife of John; Edith Williamson; Hannah, wife of Richard Fox. Son: Cuthbert (not 21). Granddaughter: Sarah. Brother:
Cuthbert. Witnesses: Judith Harper and Edward Farrington.
Hallom Sturdivant is son of Mathew Sturdivant and grandson of Old John Sturdivant of William Byrd fame
Susan Coleman born Dec 13 1755 married Isham Reese born Aug 1748 migrated to Georgia.
She named her sons Williamson C., born 1775, Isham, Cuthbert, Joseph, John C, Henry L and Jordan,,,daughters Susan and Sarah P Her son Cuthbert married Tabitha Clark of Orange County VA and named his sons James Williamson, Williamson Henry, Augustus Cuthbertm, Joseph Thomas, and Walton Pendleton.
It seems obvious to me that both that the Coleman's, Reese, Williamson are related here.
All of these names are identical and go back to Charles City County were a Cuthbert Williamson was the Coroner (1664). Incedentally many years later Cuthbert Coleman was the coroner of Dinwiddie County. Coincident???
Any thoughts would be appreciated
