SYDENHAM & HODGSON, VA, MERCHANTS OF LONDON
      "In 1747, the business of transporting English felons to the American colonies changed hands. Jonathan Forward, the London merchant who had held the governmental contract since 1718, decided to "leave off business" and assigned much of his trade to two former employees, Jonathan Sydenham and Thomas Hodgson. Sydenham (born about 1715) had been Forward's agent in VA, where he had married Mary, daughter of John Morton of Richmond.
      The firm of Sydenham and Hodgson, operating from Philpot Lane in London, quickly rose to become a major force in general trade with VA and MD, as well as in the convict-shipping business. In 1763, after a series of financial losses, the firm as declared bankrupt. However, Sydenham's son - Jonathan Forward Sydenham - continued in the business and by 1768 was able to describe himself as "the Contractor with the greatest part of the counties of England for the transportation of felons. By 1772, he had taken a partner, Duncan Campbell, with whom he continued as contractor for transports until the outbreak of the Revolutionary War ended that trade in 1775.
      A good insight into the trade conducted by Sydenham & Hodgson is provided by an examination of the principal chancery lawsuits in which they engaged - although most were discreet to the point of total silence on the subject of criminal transportation. The following is a summary of these suits and the depositions relating to them, taken from cited files in the Public Record Office, London.
[C12/1904/18 and C12/1904/24]
      7 April 1749, Sydenham & Hodgson entered a bill alleging that at the beginning of 1747 they agreed with Henry Blomart, owner of the Beaufort - then bound from London to Cape Breton and Rappahannock River, VA - that her captain, Elias Perryman, should load tobacco and collect debts in VA on their behalf. Perryman now refuses to coem to account. In his answer, sworn on 7 April1749, Blomart says that he was persuaded to contract with the plaintiffs, about whose dealings in VA he formerly knew nothing, because of a recommendation from Jonathan Forward, to whom the plaintiffs were formely agents. The Beaufort sailed from London on 29 May1747, when the plaintiffs wrote to Joseph Morton in VA, instructing him to procuse tobacco on their behalf. The ship arrived in the Potaomac River on 4 Dec1747 and did not arrive back in London until January 1749. Elias Perryman answered on 8May1749 to much the same effect. A schedule of tobaccos loaded by ship in VA is attached and includes shipments made by the following individuals (whose consignees, when named, are listed in parentheses):
      Joseph Ball, Samuell Ball; Spencer Ball(to Edward Atthawes); Richard Barnard; Richard Barnes; Laurence Battail (to John Hanbury); John Brookwood; Elizabeth Buckner; John Camp; Charles Carter, Esq.(to John Hanbury); Col. Landen Carter (toJohn Hanbury); Thomas Carter(to John Hanbury);Col. Armistead Churhall (to William Loney); GOWEN CORBIN (to John Hanbury); JOHN CORBIN (to James Buchanan);Wm Cowne (to Humphrey Bell); Capt. Hugh Crafford; James Crosbie......"

     Alice Corbin was born on 14 February 1660 at Christ Church Parish, Middlesex Co., Virginia, USA; Col Dames [1897:10]: "Alice Corbin the Daughter of Henry Corbin Esqr was born halfe an houre after five o'clock in the evening Feby 14th 1660."1,7,8 She married Honorable Philip Lightfoot, son of John Lightfoot Esq. and Elizabeth Phillips, on 28 September 1679 at Middlesex Co., Virginia, USA; Williams/Morton [2007:90] cites the Parish register of Christ Church, Middlesex County, VA, for 1653-1812, p. 18: "Major Philip Lightfoot and Alice Corbin was married p. Lycence 23 September 1679."1,9,2
Alice Corbin died circa 1713.7
     ; NB: per Lillard (1991, p. 11): "Extensive research has not produced any reference in the extant records to a Benjamin Lillard who married Elizabeth Lightfoot. This lineage is apparently based entirely upon family traditions as related by Lillards of earlier generations. But these statements of tradition are not direct evidence because the declarants did not have personal knowledge of the events and relationships they described." I am still searching for the parents of Elizabeth.
     Several family trees on Ancestry.com (e.g., Karen's Family Tree) show this Elizabeth who m. Benjamin Lillard. Based on such sources, I had assigned this Elizabeth as the dau. of John Lightfoot, Esq. and his wife Elizabeth Phillips. According to William/Morton (2007:34] This John and Elizabeth did have a daughter named Elizabeth, but she married a John Turner. The Elizabeth (b. ca 1701 d. ) who m. Benjamin lived too late to be a daughter of John and Elizabeth. The daughter named Elizabeth of John and Elizabeth was b. bef 1648 (when her father died): more than 50 years before the birth of the Elizabeth who m. Benjamin Lillard
     Some of the Ancestry family trees cite the Colonial Famililes of the USA, 1607-1775 database with pages from MacKenzie & Rhodes (copies of the images of the pages cited are attached). MacKenzie & Rhodes show the following lineage (in ahnentafel form):
1. Ann Lightfoot b. 22 Sep 1708 d. 1748; m. 3 June 1729 Col Francis Slaughter b. 1701 d. 1766
2. Maj. Goodrich Lightfoot m.
3. Mary Chew
4. Col. John Lightfoot d. 1707
5. Ann Goodrich
6-7. ---
8. John Lightfoot, Esq.
9. Elizabeth Phillipps
10-15. ---
16. Rev. Richard Lightfoot
17. Jane Jones

     however, later research (e.g., Richardson [2013] shows several errors in the MacKenzie & Rhodes ascent, the most important of which is that there is a generation missing between Col John Lightfoot (c1650-1707) and John Lightfoot, Esq. (1598-1648). Another error in the MacKenzie & Rhodes line is that Rev. Richard Lightfoot (c1562-1625) m. Jane ASKE (not Jane Jones).
The corrected line with the corrected generations highlighted is:
1. Ann Lightfoot b. 22 Sep 1708 d. 1748; m. 3 June 1729 Col Francis Slaughter b. 1701 d. 1766
2. Maj. Goodrich Lightfoot m.
3. Mary Chew
4. Col. John Lightfoot d. 1707
5. Ann Goodrich
6-7. ---
8. Capt. John Lightfoot II b. ca 1623 d. 1682
9. Elizabeth Taylor/Tailor d. bef 1687
1015. ---
16. John Lightfoot, Esq.
17. Elizabeth Phillipps
18-31. ---
32. Rev. Richard Lightfoot
33. Jane Aske

Many (more than 100) Ancestry family trees assign Elizabeth as a daughter of William/John Lightfoot and an Elizabeth Phillips. Some of these show the John and Elizabeth I list above. Others show this William/John as the son of Philip Lightfoot (1643-1708) and Alice Corbin 1660-1713). I am so far unable to confirm that Philip and Alice had a son named William (or John).
Conclusion: I have chosen to show no parents for Elizabeth for the moment. GA Vaut.10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17
