Tenth Generation


576. Charles Yancey was born 1678 in St Martins Parish, Hanover Co., VA. He died 1749 in Hanover Co., VA. Charles married Mary Bartlett on 14 Jan 1704/1705 in King William Co., VA. [Parents]

The earliest valid documentation of a YANCEY is found on a list of landowners called a Quit Rent Roll. In 1704 Charles Yancey is listed on the Quit Rent Roll for King William County, Virginia owning 100 acres. The actual relationship of this Charles to the immigrant brothers is not clear. However, if the story of the brothers is true, he would most likely be a grandson to one of the five. Most researchers are also in agreement that around 1704, a Charles Yancey married Miss Bartlett. Some sources record her name as Mary. It would seem that Charles and Mary continued living in the area that would later become Hanover and Louisa Counties, formed in 1720 and 1742 respectively. These counties were formed from New Kent and King William Counties. One source records their marriage on January 14, 1704, although no known documentation exists to support this claim.

Family tradition has it that Charles of King William County was the son of an earlier Charles Yancey and his wife Mary Leighton. It has also been reported that Mary Leighton was thought to be a descendant of Alexander Leighton who was cruelly persecuted for his religious teachings. However, after centuries of searching, no evidence has been found to confirm or even support the above information. It should not be considered true until such documentation is discovered.

In 1722 Charles of King William County and his wife Mary Bartlett lived and owned land between North Anna and Little River. Charles later received land grants totaling 448 acres in Hanover County. These grants were issued on behalf of King George II between 1725 and 1730. The last date Charles was known to be alive was 1745 when he deeded a negro slave to his son Robert. No will has ever been found for Charles but it is believed he died shortly after the deed of 1745. There has been very little information recorded about Mary Bartlett. No birth or death dates are known for her.

BIOGRAPHY: Richard Yancey, son of Charles of King William County and Mary Bartlett, was born in the early 1700's in Virginia. In the mid 1730's, Richard is found living in Hanover County, Virginia. It is here that Richard probably met his wife. He and Mary were most likely married about 1735. It is believed that Mary may have been Mary Bolling, although no documentation is known to exist to confirm her maiden name. Their home in Hanover County would have been in the area that would become Louisa County in 1742.

The principal source of support for the family was the farm. Mary blessed Richard with ten children. This was of great importance to the yeoman planter, for a large family would translate into "free" farm labor. Land was easily acquired in America compared to the difficulty small farmers would have in England and Europe. In 1753 Richard sold their plantation of 250 acres to John Snelson and bought lands around and on Grassy Creek. The purchases were a part of the land granted to Drury Stith, Henry Morris, and Michael Cadet Young. Grassy Creek was located on the Virginia-North Carolina border in Lunenburg County but would become Mecklenburg County in 1764. Richard, Mary, eight sons and one daughter relocated and settled in their new home. They apparently settled quickly as Richard appears in the Vestry records of Cumberland Parish, Lunenburg County, in 1754 and their tenth child, Zachariah was born June 25, 1754 in the same county.

The late 1770's and early 1780's would have been a most difficult time for this pioneer family. The Revolutionary War was upon them and five of their sons are known to have been involved in the conflict. Their son Lewis was a private in the 8th Virginia Regiment and is thought to have been killed in action in 1777. Absalom was a private in the 14th Virginia Regiment in 1777 and in 1779 he is recorded with the 10th Virginia Regiment. In 1779, Richard transferred land on Beaver Creek to his son Charles. This may have been at a time when Richard was in ill health as his will was probated in 1780 in Mecklenburg County. Mary and all ten of their children were mentioned in the will. Two years after the death of her husband, Mary lost another son. The cause of Hezekiah's death in 1782 is unknown. He had served the Patriot cause in the Revolutionary War and was a member of Caldwell's Rangers in South Carolina in 1775. In Hezekiah's will he mentioned his brother Rueben (not one of the sons listed in the will of Richard). This has caused some confusion as to the exact make-up of the family. However, it is generally believed that Richard's son Joseph and this Rueben are the same person. Perhaps his name was Joseph Rueben Yancey. In 1779, Joseph (Rueben?) was a Quartermaster Sergeant, 3rd Regiment in South Carolina. He seems to have died before 1790. Zachariah's military record suggests he was a surveyor.

Mary continued to lived in Mecklenburg for several years after Richard's death. In 1782, records indicate Mary also supported the patriots of the Revolutionary War by supplying beef to the militia. She died in 1795 in Mecklenburg County and her last will and testament is recorded there. In her will Mary refers to all of her children except Lewis, Hezekiah, and Joseph.

This son is not proven to be a son of Charles and Mary. He is not in the
will. But he is listed on the IGI files as their son, so I have left his
name in my records. He has the same birthdate as Archelaus, so are they
twins? Then why two different states for birth???

Thomas Thornton died testate in Richmond County leaving his estate to his wife Susannah Thornton and by his last will and testament oddly made no reference to his children.

William Wager Harris married 9 Dec 1788 Powhatan County, Virginia to Mary Farrar d Joseph Royall Frarrar and Phoebe Harris

The Benjamin that was the son of Thomas Harris and Mary Jefferson (also my line was raised in Henrico County, where you will find the will of both Thomas Harris and Mary Jefferson Harris. He married Frances Platt the daughter of thomas Platt of Henrico County, and his wife Sarah ?. When Goochland broke off Henrico in 1727 or 28 the Harris boys were in Goochland in the part that then lay south of the James R. Benjamin had to sue his brother in laws for Frances inheritance and that is found in Goochland Records. There is also a later notation that Sukey and Joe negro slaves of Benjamin Harris were charged for giving poisen to Mary and Anne Harris daughters of his first marriage. This was some time after his second marriage to Priscilla Wager daughter of Wm Wager who I believe at that time was the clerk of the Elizabeth City County, court The slaves were found NOT GUILTY. these girls were both married in Manikin see Douglas Register. Mary is mentioned in Benjamins will written 24 April 1776. See W.B. l Cumberland County, Virginia the executors were Edward Mosely (son in law) Saml Nevins (a physician) Bernard Markham (a son in law of Benjamins younger brother William Harris having married11 May 1767 in Cumberland County, Virginia Mary Harris who died in April 1825 in Henry County, Kentucky. ) HE WAS NOT BENJAMINS SON IN LAW. two of William Harris girls me Markhams. Mary to Col Bernard Markham of Chesterfield County, Virginia and Vincent Markham who married Elizabeth Harris d of Wm in 1776 Now for the daughters of the first marriage of Benjamin. Mary Harris married in Manikin by Rev Douglas Sion Spencer eldest son of Thomas Spencer and Elizabeth Julia Flournoy Elizabeth Julia was the daughter of Elizabeth Harris daughter of John Harris who was elder brother of Benjamin Harris of this discussion. Sion owned land in Chesterfield that he had purchased from Wm Byrd died during Revolution leaving Mary with Thomas Harris Spencer and several others. Mary lived to an old age at least part of the time in Charlotte County, Virginia home county of the elder Spencers. I know that Anne married Joel Estes of Lunenberg County, Virginia in 1770 and was dead by 1776 probably of childbirth. Benjamin Harris then married Priscilla Wager see mg 1751 in Goochland County, see Douglas Register. as said before she was the daughter of William Wager and Ann Henson. they had the following children HENSON WAGER HARRIS b1753 ref: D.R. she married 24 September 1770 at Maniken Edward Moseley ref: Douglas Register PHOEBE HARRIS b 1755 again ref Douglas Register married by 1778 location unknown to Nathanial Carrington who was b 28 Feb 1743 EDITH HARRIS B C 1757 in Cumberland County, Virginia never married.

She willed slaves to the Dr.s family as well as others. a slave Patti to her sister Henson Wager, a slave Loue to her sister SALLY OR SARAH HARRIS b August of 1759 in Cumberland County, Virginia married 20 December 1785 to William Yates. Surety Thomas Harris (who had been appointed her Gaurdian) ANN HENSON WAGER HARRIS KNOWN AS NAncY. she was listed as head of household in 1785 in Powhatan received a slave Jude from Ediths will. I have no record of her ever marrying BENJAMIN HARRIS JR. b c
1761 in cumberland County, Virginia He received a slave Bristo from sister Ediths will. He married l. 27 March 1793 in Amelia County, Virginia to an heiress Martha Wilson that brought with her marriage some 30 odd slaves. this marriage produced Sarah Harris who married Wm Saunders 2 July 1803 in Powhatan County, Virginia and Egbert and Wilson Harris. He married 2 9 Jan 1795 Lucy Turpin of Thos Turpin. after Benj Jr.'s will was proved October 1802 in Powhatan County, Virginia Lucy Turpin Harris married William Bentley.By Lucy Turpin Benjamin had Martha Eveline Harris who married 17 Nov 1819 William Ligon and Marcus Aurelius Harris who d 1844 Powhatan County, Virginia unmarrried Benjamins Harris and Priscilla Wagers last child was WILLIAM WAGER HARRIS (named for her father) b c 1766 Cumberland County, Virginia married 9 Dec 1788 Powhatan County, Virginia Mary Farrar daughter of Joseph Royall Farrar and Phoebe Harris daughter of Benjamin Harris older brother James Harris and Sarah Baily of chesterfield County, Virginia surety was Thomas Harris gaurdian. Chuck this is all original research not printed Benjamins will of Manikin Cumberland County, old and infirm to wife Priscilla land on the James River bought of James Sublette and Peter David to son Benjamin land in Mechlenberg County, Virginia son William Wager to have land on James River and Salle's Creek and lower Manikin Creek in Chesterfield County, and Cumberland co's Virginia To daughter Mary Spencer land in Transylvania executor Edward Moseley , Abraham Salle' Bernard Markham signed 24 April 1776 witnesses Saml Bellamey Wm Kerr, Geo Shafter and Abraham Salle' security Charles Woodson, John Mayo, and Richard Crump. i In 1778 county records Edith, Sally, Nancy, Wm and Benjamin represented by friend Bernard Markham versus Edward Mosely and Henson Wager Mosely asking their cousins John Harris, Thomas Harris, Wm Harris and Charles Clarke to divide the estate for them. At the time of Benjamins Harris death he had 57 slaves #46 Jupiter he had received from his sister Sarah Harris in her will. I HOPE THAT THIS CLEARS UP THE CONFUSION AND ALTHOUGH IT IS POSSIBLE FROM THE RECORDS I HAVE OF LAND PURCHASES ETC. IT WOULD BE DIFFICULT TO PLACE BENJAMIN HARRIS IN MARYLAND UNLESS IT WAS FOR A VERY BRIEF TIME . THE SECOND MARRIAGE WAS NOT A VERY HAPPY ONE I GATHER PRISCILLA REFUSED TO HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE ESTATE. FRAN FLETCHER - This is my family I know it inside and out after almost 40 years of searching.
