     John Hiatt Jr. died between 26 October 004 and December at Frederick Co., Virginia, USA.1 He was born circa 1696 at England.1 He was born in 1696 at England.2 He married Rachel Wilson circa 1720.3 John Hiatt Jr. married Margaret Stephens Edwards circa 1747 at Frederick Co., Virginia, USA.3 John Hiatt Jr. died on 26 October 1764 at Frederick Co., Virginia, USA.2
     John Hiatt Jr. Found in HH book, by William Perry Johnson, for following story see Edwards book, by Lela Lillian Lones, page 36. John Hiatt Jr. died between 6 Oct. and 4 Dec 1764, the dates his will was written and probated. An old pioneer story in a paper stated, "Scouts brot news that there was a body of Indians coming toward the fort on Capon and Hiatt gathered his family and started in the night. He took Quinsy and died that winter." See Hiatt book for will page 60. Sent by Clifford Hardin from the Ancestors and Family of J. Alvin Hardin by Dorothy Hardin Massey and Clifford Hardin 1986. John Hiatt, Jr. first appears on the records of Lancaster County, Penn on 25 April 1733 when he received warrant number 5 to 200 acres of land situated on Beaver Creek. He apparently did not comply with the conditions of the warrant, for the land declared vacant and regranted in 1744. George Hiatt also held land in Lancaster County which he sold before moving to Frederick County, Maryland where he was associated with Pipes Creek Meeting. All three Hiatt brothers eventually were living near Hopewell in Frederick County, Vir. Even thought John Jr. and George owned land in Lancaster County in Penn. it appears that their real base of operations was in the Elk County area prior to the move southward. About 1733 seventy families settled in what became Frederick County, Vir and they founded Hopewell Meeting. Thirty-six patents have been found for thirty-four of these families. All patents were dated 12 Nov 1735. John Hiatt Jr. was granted 300 acres. He purchased 200 acres more in 1738. The Hiatt's settled at the head of a branch of Opeckon Creek near the present day village of Middleway, north east of Winchester. This location was in Orange County, Vir. in 1734, Frederick County in 1738, Berkeley County in 1772, Jefferson County in 1801. Today Berkeley and Jefferson Counties still exist but they are part of West Viriginia. The Hiatt's remained there about twenty years. John Hiatt's Jr. first wife died about 1746. She was the mother of eight of John Jr.'s sixteen children. About 1747 John Jr. married young widow Margaret Edwards. She had three children by her first marriage. One of these daughter, and her family were captured by Indians in Greenbrier County, VIr. The husband was killed and the daughter escaped but the children remained with the Indians. In 1757 the Hiatt's moved to Rowan (now Guilford) County, North Carolina, although John Jr. did not sell the land in Vir. He bought 640 acres on the south fork of Deep River and built a mill. This land fell in Guilford County when it was formed in 1772. Some maps show Hiatt Creek flowing into Deep River. In 1760 John Jr. deeded this land to three sons by his first wife, Joseph, George and John and retured to Vir. This time he settled in Hampshire County on a plantation of 659 acres purchased from his son, George. Shortly before his death, John Hiatt Jr. returned to Frederick County, Vir. His sixteenth child was born posthumously. His oldest child would have been forty-two years of age when John died. A story found by R. A. Stubbs which has been recorded by one of John Jr.'s grandsons said that scouts brought news that Indians were approaching the fort on Capon (Cacapon River) John Jr. took his family to the fort in the night. John took quinsey and died that winter 1764. John Hiatt left a will naming all of his childrne except Phebe who was born after his death. It wa dated 3 Jan 1764 and probated 4 Dec 1764. Margaret Hiatt later married James Largent and had three more children a total of fourteen by three husbands. Also found in Iowa Gen. Historical Society Surname Index, Vol. I, pg. 132: Hiatt/Hiett, John Jr. b. 1696 EN. D. 1764 VA. M. 1747 2 Margaret Stevens Edwards. Code M50 Hopewell Friends History (1734-1934) page 20 Sent by Darlene Peterson Note by Tanya, I'm not sure which of the John Hiatt's this belongs to. John Hiatt Jr., 300 Acres. No further information of certain character concerning this man appear, though various persons by the name of Hiatt (Hiett) were in the Shenandoah Valley and adjacent sections at later periods. At Hopwell, February 4, 1748, Ja. MaGrew and Jno. Hiatt were appointed to enquire into Richd. Merchant's claims to a certificate of removal to North Carolina or elsewhere. This John Hiatt was probably the John Hiatt Jr. of 1735. On February 28, 1782, Samuel Brockman Jr., Richard C. Webb and William Thomas returned to the Orange County court an appraisement of the personal estate of John Hiatt, deceased. In 1795 Jonathan Hiatt and wife, Mary, with others, of Fayette County, Ky. sold land on Terry's Run in Orange County, Va. It is not known rather these Hiatt's of later Orange were connected with the Hiatt's of the Valley. West Virginia Advocate by Dr. Wilmer Kerns 15 Feb 1990, page 18 John Hiett Jr. purchased land at North River Mills and lived there for a brief period during the early 1750's. Hiett's Run, a tributary of North River, still bears his name. One of his sons, George Hiett, settled on adjoining property. George helped develop the Great Wagon Road, which led from his North River farm to Jospeh Edward's property along the Cacapon River. George fled to North Carolina during the Indian war and did not return to Hampshire County.4

     GAV-9.

Thomas Hieght There seems to be a compilation of evidence which would indicate that this is the same Thomas Hiatt who was on board the ship, Ventura in 1634 from England. It also appears that he was a merchant and had at least 2 sons, John and Thomas who settled in the New World. Sent by Shirley Brown 2212 Nobili Ave Santa Clara, Calif. 95051

From Hyatt to Hiett One Line of Descent from Thomas Hyatt of Stamford, Norwalk and Ridgefield, Ct. Thomas Hyatt, orignis so far, unproved, but believed to have come from England on the ship "Bonaventure" in 1634, at the age of 22. This ship was originally bound for Virginia, but landed first at Dorchester, Mass. Besides Thomas Hyatt, a John Russell, age 19, was also on the passenger list. The first mention of a Thomas Hyatt (in early records) was when his name appeared on the will of one John Russell of Dorchester, Mass., and he is called "brother". This John Russell died before the ship Bonaventure arrived, the date of death was 26 Aug 1633. His age was not been ascertained, but he may have been the father of the John Russell, age 19, who arrived the following year. Several years later, in Stanford, Ct. At a town meeting of Dec. 7, 1641, 200 acres of land was granted to Thomas Hyatt of that town. This Thomas Hyatt was married, before 1640 to Elizabeth. Elizabeth's last name has never been proven, but was suggested to be Russell, because of the will, back in Dorchester, and because an Elizabeth Russell was known to be in New Haven, Ct. and she had at least two brothers, Henry and John. That this Elizabeth was really a "Russell" has never been proven, and it was also suggested that she may have been one Elizabeth Jackson, whose name also appears on the passenger list of the "Bonaventure" Whoever Elizabeth was, her husband, Thomas Hyatt died in Stamford, Ct. on 9 Sept 1656, Leaving 6 children. Elizabeth married 2) 8 June 1657 to Cornelius Jones, a widower and itwas Cornelius Jones who later made disposition of Thomas Hyatt's estate to the Hyatt children. Of the children of Thomas Hyatt and wife, Elizabeth, there was a son, Thomas Hyatt Jr., who was born in 1651, and was married 10 Nov 1677, at Norwalk, Ct. to Mary St. John, daughter of Mathias St. John and his first wife, Elizabeth or Norwalk. Thomas Hyatt Jr. died at Norwalk, Ct. and the inventory of his estate was taken 28 Mar 1698. His estate was distributed in 1718, 20 years after his death, and several pieces of his land were recorded after his death. The names of all nice of his childrren appear on the distribution records. Thomas Hyatt Jr., and Mary St. John lived in Norwalk, Ct. and he was called Lt. Thomas Hyatt. He received a land grant from the town of Norwalk in 1672 for military services rendered during King Philips War (7 acres) which he exchanged for other land. Of their nine children, Thomas Hyatt 3rd, was born about 1680 in Norwalk, and married a land named Experience. Her last name has never been found. Thomas Hyatt 3rd, and wife, Experience moved to the newly settled town of Ridgefield, Ct. and drew lot #15, as one of the original 25 proprietors in 1708. Residence there, however, did not occur until about 1714, when his house and land was ready for occupancy. The first three of their eight children were born in Norwalk, and the other 5 were born in Ridgefield. Thomas died 25 Dec 1760 at Ridgefield, but his death is recorded at Danbury, since that was where hte deaths for Ridgefield were recorded until Ridgefield started to keep records of their own. His wife Experience did nto remarry and died at Ridgefield on 29 Apr 1773. Both are buried at Ridgefield, Ct. Hannah Hyatt was their oldest child, and was born 15 August 1702, at Norwalk. She married 1) 24 April 1722 to James Scott, son of David Scott of Ridgefield. James Scott and Hannah Hyatt had six children, before his death sometime around 1749. Widow Hannah Hyatt Scott married 2) (as his 3rd wife) to Samuel St. John. She died 26 april 1765. The first child of James Scott and Hannah Hyatt was daughter, Hannah Scott, born 3 Oct 1731, at Ridgefield, Ct. She was married on 16 April 1754 to John Rockwell Jr. son of John Rockwell and Elizabeth Keeler of Ridgefield, Ct. Early in 1766 John Rockwell and Hannah Scott Rockwell migrated from Ridgefield, Ct. to Lanesborough, Berkshire Co., Mass. Hannah Scott Rockwell died there on the 8 May 1788 and is buried in Lanesborough, Mass.2

     Thomas Hiatt was born circa 1675 at Wales.1
     Thomas Hiatt There was a brother of our John Hiatt who was living in Ireland when in about 1715 a nephew, Elijah Hiatt, son of John Sr. was visiting him. These persons appear in the Hopewell MM in 1715 and some of the family are known to appear in the Ky. area in Mason Co. census records of 1810. There is a Thomas and John who were brothers and an Elijah who was a cousin. To date, our records are mainly absent of any record of these families. This Thomas was allgedly born in Wales. There is no proof of this relationship at this time and we only include him here as a place to hold information if it is forth coming and thereby hopefully be able to confirm or disprove lineage. It will not hurt to recognize his presence in some form as there has been many intermingling of these families. Hopefully there will be proof forthcoming on these families.2

     Elisha Hiatt Note: I would like to make it perfectly clear that this line is not proven as far as standards for good genealogy are concerned. I only include it hear as a means to establish what is known and to include this line in our work. It is, however, strongly suspected to be true, and has tradition, as well as some indiction to be the case. In one instance, this Elisha was suppose to have been visiting his Uncle, Thomas Hiatt in Ireland and assisting, perhaps, him in his move to the colonies, where they both were reported to have been about 1715 - Hopewell MM. Further, this Thomas Hiatt line was suppose to have had two grandsons in the 1790 census who were next to Elisha, a grandson of this Elisha and they being cousins. The other names were supposedly John and Thomas found in the Kentucky Census. These lines are not well reported and supposed to comprise much of the unknown and unproven lines in S.C., Ky., Tenn., Georgia and other such southern states. It is fervently hoped that proof will soon be forthcoming, that wills, marriage bonds, church, service records, etc. will be available in order to afford the necessary breakthrough. It also is interesting to notice many similiar names, places and events which bond together John #37 in HH book and his descendents and those of these unproven lines.3

Stephen H. Lee Sr. Note from Ed Bartolacci (Gedcom 21 Feb 1999)
There is some question as to who Stephen's parents were. I have found conflicting information. On Broderbund World Family Tree Vol. 5 it indicates that Edward Lee and Ann Bender are the parents. Most other information indicates that they were Richard Lee and Judith Steptoe. Additional research is needed to determine which is correct.

Richard Lee per WFT E1-0756: Richard was born of "Ditchley" on the 18th of August 1691, as stated in his father's will. He died in the same place and was buried there. Richard was a Justice and first of the Quorum in 1714, so had probably been some years in commission. He was Clerk of Northumberland County from 1716 to 1735. His personal estate was divided as such: one third was awarded to the widow and the other two thirds were divided among his seven children. The real estate was inherited by his son Kendall.3 Richard Lee was also known as Richard Lee.5

XIII William and Mary Quarterly states that Charles was born on the Mersy River, between Cheshire and Lancashire. He came to the James River in Virginia about 1690. He was reported to have had 11 children.

Charles came to America form England with his father and family about 1690.

     GAV-6.

Michael Holland from Ancestry.com: From the research of Wiley Julian Holland, Jr.

"The history of Michael Holland before July 9, 1724 is a total mystery and probably the largest enigma in the Virginia history of Holland families. There is not a single known record of his existence before that date in 1724... and no evidence to show that he was the son of John. John Bennett Boddie in his series on Historical Southern Families stated that "based on circumstantial evidence, it appears that John had four sons: Henry, James, Joseph, and John Holland, Jr." There is no mention of a Michael Holland anywhere in the 14 page section about the Hollands of Nansemond VA..

In his research Mr. Holland states his opinion that Michael was born in the 1690-1700 range and there is a possibility he was born in England. Michael lists three daughters in his will: Anne, Susanna and Marcy who are underage and he appoints guardians for them. Marcy married in 1759,and Susannah in 1757. Using an average of twenty years for them at the time of their marriage, it would place their births around 1737. If Michael was born in 1660, that means he had children at the age of 67. .

On several of his land patents, he was referred to as Captain Michael Holland. On others it was Michael Holland, "Gentleman". The term "Gentleman" in 18th century Virginia can be defined as being well educated, not only in basic literacy but to be well grounded in Greek and Latin classics. The sons of Virginia gentry were exposed to the best in 18th century schooling. A gentleman was of good family background, ideally born into the elite. A gentleman was to be wealthy enough to bear the cost of living the genteel life without visible strain and was to be free from the necessity to work, especially if that work involved physical or manual labor. .

There is no doubt that Michael was an extremely wealthy man for that period in Virginia as noted in both his and his wife's will. It is suspected that he might have been born into a wealthy family in England, because there were no Holland families in the late 17th century that meets the defination of Gentleman as described above..

He started buying land in Henrico, Goochlandnd and Lousia Counties in 1727 and by the time he died in 1746, he had accumulated about 20,000 acres.
Out of the blue Michael makes three purchases of land in Henrico County, July 20, 1724 totaling 1200 acres. On June 11, June 16, and October 13, 1727 he makes six purchases totaling 2346 acres in Henrico County. September 28, 1730, he makes four purchases totaling 4961 acres in Henrico County. On May 5 and August 25, 1731 he makes 3 purchases totaling 7150 acres in Goochland and Hanover Counties. April 11, and April 15, 1732, he makes 3 purchases in Goochland and Hanover Counties totaling 3840 acres..

On June 20, 1733, he makes one purchase in Goochland totaling 3450 acres. On September 10, 1735 he made one purchase of 4365 acres in Goochland. April 22, 1736 he made one 400 acre purchase in Hanover County. On July 20 and September 12, 1738 he made three purchases in Amelia and Hanover Counties totaling 4360 acres. August 20 and December 1, 1740 he made three purchases in Hanover County for 1200 acres. On March 30, 1743, he made two purchases in Hanover and Amelia Counties totaling 700 acres. His last known purchase was March 15, 1744 in Goochland County totaling 4753 acres. I believe that is a total of 38,725 acres. A separate purchase of 400 acres on September 28, 1730 was made jointly by Michael and William Ford, the father of Michael’s future daughter in law, Sarah. Michael was one of the largest land owners in Virginia..

*************************

Based upon circumstantial evidence ONLY (the oral history within my family) we show Michael as son of John Holland of Nansemond. Michael had access to the funds necessary to acquire the vast acreage recorded in his name, and while Major John Holland (from whom I am descended), by the time he "seated" his several patents in old Nansemond had acquired a sizeable estate BUT not one able to fund the purchases of Michael, and provide for his other offspring.

Michael's brother Stephen's career as a privateer or pirate, if you will, is fairly well documented, and may well have provided a ready source of the funds necessary to finance the land purchases so recorded.

Another theory which has been put forth involves the shadowy figure of Samuel Holland, an original subscriber/stock holder in the London Company whose original charter served as the basis upon which the Virginia Colony was established. Several genealogists have attempted to construct a lineage which places Michael as son of this Samuel. During the more than 40 years in which I have actively researched my family NO record has been found of such "link."

The painting of Michael, dated 1699, currently hangs above the mantel in the Richmon, Virginia home of a direct descendant of Michael. That gentleman has requested that I not release any information regarding his personal or business interests.

It is interesting to note that the Holland family of "Southside" Virginia, and those who reside in Fluvanna, Goochland, Amelia & Richmond have had almost no contact save for occasional appearances at Holland Family Reunions. We are a clannish, tight-lipped family who do not seek the limelight and shun publicity of any sort. With great reluctance, have many of "my family" spoken, and then it has been clearly understood that all conversations were to be considered "off the record."

I found US and International Marriage Records: Marriage 1685 in Virginia to Judith?

      7. Catherine 6th daughter
      8. Thomas West ob. Infant
      9. Essex West
     The information transcribed above was checked against that given in The Herald's Visitations of 1530, 1575, 1622 and 1634. There were no additions.
     It does appear that this is a complete and very thorough genealogical survey and we must therefore conclude that Thomas West, Lord De La Warr did not have a daughter named Martha.
     An attempt was therefore made to trace the origin of Martha WEST born c.1615.
     IGI - the 1988 version i.e. that containing information extracted from registers, does not cover Southampton. It only gives partial coverage of the county - approx. 35%. There is no Martha WEST listed of an appropriate date, nor any William WOODWARD.
     Wherwell
     There are no transcripts and no indexes for the Wherwell registers. They are not included on the IGI or in Phillimore's Marriage Indexes.
The registers are on fiche. They begin in 1634 with a mixed register - baptisms, marriages & burials in one book. This was searched from 1634 to 1653. It is in poor condition.
     No entries for WOODWARD.
     No baptisms or marriages found for WEST.]
     Henry WEST buried 6 Jan 1637. [This might indicate a possible origin for Martha, but the name is common.]
     The Victoria County History - Wherwell
     The village of Longparish in the hundred of Wherwell was granted to Thomas West, Lord De La Warr by Henry VIII at the dissolution of the monasteries [1539] and remained in the family until 1695. Evidence suggests that at some point it was gifted to Cecily, Lady de La Warr and she sold parts of the lands in the early 1600s.
     [It looks as if Wherwell is connected with the De La Warr family and not with the father of Martha West.]
     WOODWARD
     All sources were also checked for WOODWARD. No appropriate listing was found in the IGI, the Wherwell registers or the Herald's Visitations.
     References to WOODWARD were found in the volume of Genealogical Pedigrees. There was no pedigree for the WOODWARD family, but there were three references to connections by marriage. This suggests that at least one branch of the WOODWARD family was landed - they may have their pedigree in another county.
     Two marriages [a William and an Edward Woodward] are far too early for the purposes of this search. The third was the marriage of Elnor WOODWARD [born 1636] to Henry WEST. Henry was one of the De La Warr Wests, but a side branch of the family.
     There is, therefore, a contemporary connection between the names West and Woodward, but there is no evidence for a Martha West in the De La Warr family, nor of any West marrying a William Woodward in the 17th century.
     One possible "lead" may be the two wills for Woodward listed in the Index of Hampshire Wills. The William snr who died in 1647 would be the right age for William's father.
     CONCLUSIONS
     Martha WEST has no connection with the De La Warr family and no apparent connection with Wherwell. Neither Martha West nor William Woodward appears on the IGI which is the best listing of baptisms for Hampshire. [if incomplete] There is no evidence for supposing that Martha West was born in Southampton - the names WEST and WOODWARD do not appear in the only remaining registers for the city.
     The only way one might find more information about Martha West and William Woodward would be if their marriage has been entered on the Marriage Index held by the Hampshire Genealogical Society. If the marriage can be found, then it gives a possible location for their baptisms.
     Otherwise, the only avenue open would be a complete search of all extant material for the appropriate dates, including the two wills from Kingsclere.4,1

     Penelope Ashley-Cooper was born in 1656 at England. She married Peter Massie, son of Thomas Massie and Judith Brereton, circa 1675 at England.1
     GAV-7.

Penelope Ashley-Cooper from Upshaw Family Tree (Ancestry.com): Penelope is recalled as the illegitimate daughter of Sir Anthony Ashley Cooper (1621-1683), the Earl of Shaftesbury who was prominent in the development of the Carolina colonies. In the contest for English rule, he sided with the royalists until 1644, served on Oliver Cromwell’s council of state until 1654 and then switched again to the side of those seeking a restoration of the Crown with King Charles II, which occurred in 1660.
Named a baron in 1661, Sir Anthony became chancellor of the exchequer of England and was granted, with a handful of other nobles, ownership of colonial Carolina (then undivided). He commissioned his friend and the noted philosopher John Locke to write a constitution for the colony, which was rapidly populating as numerous families migrated from the English Caribbean colony of Barbados to the American mainland.
He and his allies founded the Whig movement in England and dominated Parliament for several sessions. Sir Anthony became lord chancellor and president of the King’s privy council, but was deposed in 1679 and died shortly thereafter in Holland.
Sir Anthony Ashley Cooper was born to Sir John Cooper and Lady Anne Ashley, an heiress whose father required that his family name pass on as the surname of her descendants. (Indeed, the given name of Ashley was common among branches of the Johnsons in America.)
Although he sired only one legitimate son despite three marriages, Sir Anthony was known to have several bastard children. The mother of Penelope has been the subject of speculation, but no proof. Even less well conceived are the logistical problems of connecting Penelope from London to the relatively provincial outpost of Coddington and the Massies. One theory posits that the natural mother of Penelope was a Massie relative. It is not known whether Peter, for example, was schooled or spent time in the English capital, which would have given him the opportunity to meet and court Penelope, assuming she lived there.2,3
Penelope Ashley-Cooper was a witness to the from Upshaw Family Tree (Ancestry.com): "The 1st Earl of Shaftesbury Anthony ASHLEY-COOPER was married three times:
      1. Margaret COVENTRY (produced no children);
      2. Lady Frances CECIL (produced one child)
     son: 2nd Earl of Shaftesbury Anthony ASHLEY-COOPER b 1652 (from which the peerage descends);
      3. Margaret SPENCER (produced no children);
     In addition, the 1st earl fathered twin daughters by Miss MASSIE (first name unknown)
      Lucretia ASHLEY-COOPER b bet 1647/1656 in Rockbourne, Southampton, Hampshire, England
      Sarah Penelope ASHLEY-COOPER b bet 1647/1656 in Rockbourne, Southampton, Hampshire,England
     Sarah Penelope later was married to Mr. Peter MASSEY of Coddington, Cheshire, England.
Together, Peter and Sarah Penelope (ASHLEY-COOPER) MASSEY had several known children of which two include:
      1. Sarah Penelope MASSEY b abt 1670 in St Peter's Parish, New Kent County, Virginia
      2. Lucretia MASSEY b 1677 in St Peter's Parish, New Kent County, Virginia
     Sarah Penelope MASSEY married William JOHNSTON b 1677 in Craig, Aberdeen, Scotland
     Lucretia MASSEY married William’s brother, John JOHNSTON, Sr. b 1675 in Craig, Aberdeen,Scotland
     (As always with any information you find regarding your ancestry, use the above as a starting point to expand your own research.)" with Sir Anthony Ashley-Cooper 1st Baron Ashley, 1st Earl of Shaftesbury.
