New River Notes — Complete

January 21, 2014

After about two years of work we have completed a major upgrade to New River Notes. On January 21, 2014 we switched in the last of the updated files and final page revisions.

In January 2013 we introduced the new site layout but because there were many pages left to do there was a big red Under Construction on the front page. A year later we've finished all of the pages that were on the original site. Construction is complete. We have a great looking site full of material to help you in your research and possibly entertain you.

We're not finished. A site like this can't just freeze in time. It must be maintained, .... Read More

New River Notes

January 6, 2013

New River Notes, a leading genealogy resource for the New River Valley of North Carolina and Virginia, launched its new look website today.

new river valley mapNew River Notes was originally launched in 1998 by Jeffrey C. Weaver providing New River Valley researchers with a new wealth of information and that tradition is continued today by the Grayson County, Virginia Heritage Foundation, Inc.

Welcome and we hope you enjoy our new look. For more information on the changes and plans see posts on the GCVHF Google+ Page.

The Colonial Virginia Register

A list of Governors, Councillors and Other Higher Officials, and also of Members of the House of Burgesses, and the Revolutionary Conventions of the Colony of Virginia --- Compiled by William Glover and Mary Newton Standard, published by Joel Munsell's Sons, Publishers, Albany, New York, 1902.

PREFACE

The compilers of this Register trust that it may prove useful to students of Virginia History and Genealogy.

They have been at pains, through diligent research and faithful citation, to secure for it that accuracy which is the only merit of a book of its character, and have exhausted all American sources known to them, though they believe it possible that there may be some few lists of the House of Burgesses which, in spite of every effort, they have failed to bring to light. They are well aware that many lists could be added from the unpublished journals of the House of Burgesses in the British Public Record Office, which they hope may some day be copied for the Virginia Historical Society, or the Virginia State Library, and the information contained in them be made accessible.

There will be found below, a very brief account of the various offices of the Colonial Government, and some notice of the sources from whence the lists are derived.

GOVERNOR--The Colony of Virginia was from 1607 to 1624, under the control of the Virginia Company, of London. At the first settlement, in 1607, the governing body consisted of a council of seven, with a president whom they were to select out of their own number. This system lasted until 1609, when the Company chose a Governor and Lieutenant Governor (Lord Delaware and Sir Thomas Gates) who were the first to bear those titles, and whose successors were, like themselves, appointed by the Company, until the revocation of its charter.

Throughout the remainder of the Colonial period the executives of Virginia were appointed by the King. Their titles varied, some being styled "Governor and Captain-General," others Lieutenant Governor," or " Deputy Governor." From 1704 to 1768 the higher title was borne by sinecures in England, while the actual power was in the hands of "Lieutenant Governors," resident in Virginia.

Vacancies were occasionally supplied, until an appointment could be made in England, by the election of a governor, by the Council, but this was only the case during the earlier years of the Royal Government. Later, the office was filled by the succession of the member of the Council senior in point in service, under the title President of the Council, or sometimes, President of Virginia.

From 1652 to 1660 the Governors were elected by the House of Burgesses, though there is some reason to believe that their choice may have been influenced by the wishes of the Parliamentary authorities, or of Cromwell.

SECRETARY OF STATE.--Lord Culpeper, writing in 1683, said, The Secretary is a patent officer, from the first seating of the country, the very next in dignity to the Governor, or Commander-in-Chief." The office was one which conferred much power and influence on the occupant. He had the right to appoint all county clerks, and as these were men of weight in their respective communities, it was frequently charged that through them the Secretary exercised too much influence in the House of Burgesses. He was keeper of the colonial seal and ex-offio clerk of the Council and General Court, though the duties of these offices were actually performed by the titular clerks of the respective bodies.

All patents and other papers from the executive were issued from the Secretary's office, and all of the executive records, as well as those of the General Court were in his custody.

An important part of the Secretary's duties was to keep the English govemment constantly informed in regard to affairs in Virginia, and send home copies of all public papers.

AUDITOR GENERAL.-As the name of this office indicates, the duty of the incumbent was to examine and audit all accounts of collectors and receivers of the public revenue in Virginia. During a considerable period the place was held by persons who were nominally deputies, while the chief title was borne by an Auditor General of the Colonies in England.

THE RECEIVER GENERAL was the custodian of the revenues of the Colony, particularly of quit rents. There were certain taxes, however, raised under acts of the General Assembly which were in charge of a treasurer elected by that body and which did not go into the hands of the Receiver General.

THE TREASURER at an early period seems to have had the duties afterwards assigned to the Receiver General, and was appointed by the Conipany, or the King. But from 1693 he was elected by the General Assembly, and had charge of the revenues raised under the laws enacted by that body. Practically he was the agent of the House of Burgesses, and the representatives of the people were so jealous of keeping entire control over this office, that through a long period of years the Speaker of the House was chosen Treasurer.

THE ATTORNEY GENERALS office requires no explanation. There were in each county deputy king's attorneys corresponding to our modern cormnonwealth's attorneys.

THE SURVEYOR GENERAL appointed, and had general supervision over the county surveyors, and it is believed wuld be appealed to in case of dispute. William and Mary College was granted the office of Surveyor General, but frequently the visitors of the college chose an individual to execute it.

THE COUNCIL.-From 1607 to 1624 the members of the Council were chosen by the Virginia Company, and during the Royal Government, which succeeded, were appointed by the Crown on the recommendation of the Governor. As a rule, when a vacancy occurred, the Governor made a temporary appointment, which was usually confirmed by the King.

The Councillors were the Governor's advisers in executive matters, and patents, etc., are stated to be issued with their "advice and consent." They constituted the General Court -the supreme court of the Colony and also had legislative functions as members of the upper house of the Assembly, corresponding somewhat to our senate. The same persons, therefore, held executive, legislative, and judicial offices.

Among those slightly acquainted with our colonial history there seenis to he a common impression that the House of Burgesses alone constituted the colonial legislature. This, of course, is a mistake, for though the Council did not have the power to originate money bills, yet their concurrence was necessary to all laws, as was also the Governor's consent, and ultirnately, the King's.

In addition to the powers already named the members of the Council almost uniformly held the higher offices, such as secretary, auditor, etc., and were also, as a rule, the county lieutenants or commanders in chief in their own and neighboring counties.

Theoretically this accumulation of offices in a few hands was entirely wrong, but it seems, in practice, to have worked fairly well, as the members of the Council, who in general were men whose estates and interests lay entirely in Virginia, do not appear to have had views at variance with thcse commonly entertained in the Colony.

THE HOUSE OF BURGESSES.-This was the popular portion of the Government composed of the representatives of the people. The members were elected upon a suffrage basis which varied at times, but which during all the latter part of the colonial era was a freehold.

After some vanation during the first part of the Seventeenth Century the number of Burgesses became fixed at two for each county, with one each for the City of Williamsburg, Borough of Norfolk, Jamestown and William and Mary College. For a time Virginia included one pocket" or "rotten" borough, for after the population at Jamestown had dwindled away and the island had come into the possession of the Ambler and Travis families, the Burgesses appear to have been practically appointed by these two families.

An assembly could be called, prorogued, or dissolved by the Governor, and very frequently the same assembly would continue in existence for many years, but of course with changes of membership as vacancies occurred.

When a member of the House of Burgesses accepted any office of profit he vacated his seat in the House by so doing, but was always eligiNe for re-dection except when he became a sheriff or coroner. In the first case it was doubtless thought that the duties of his office would require his presence in his county. There does not seeen to be the same objection in the last named case, but at any rate, accepting the office of coroner seems to have been a favorite device for getting out of the House of Burgesses.

SOURCES OF INFORMATION

For the lists of Governors, Councillors, Secretaries of State, Auditor, Receiver, Surveyor and Attorney Generals, and Treasurers, the principal sources have been: Of books in print, Alexander Brown's Genesis of the United States and First Republic of America; the various works of E. D. Neill; Hening's Statutes at Large of Virginia; Campbell's History of Virginia; The Calendar of Virginia State Papers; Hotten's Emigrants; The "Collections" of the Virginia Historical Society; The Virginia Magazine of History and Biography; The William and Mary Quarterly; the Lower Norfolk Antiquary; Water's "Gleanings; the Virgiria Colonial Almanacs; the printed journals of the House of Burgesses, and the Virginia Gazette newspaper. Of records in manuscript, information has been chiefly derived from the abstracts of English State Papers made by W. N. Sainsbury for the State of Virginia; the journals of the Council, in the Virginia State Library; the records of the Virginia Company of London (from the copy in the Virginia Historical Society collections); the "Randolph Manuscripts," and "Robinson's Notes," both consisting of extracts from the Virginia colonial records, and both part of the Virginia Historical Society Collections, and various manuscripts relating to the early history of Virginia now in the Congressional Library. Occasional assistance was obtained from the Virginia county records, where not infrequently an order of Council or of the General Court is found recorded with the names of the Councillors present when it was made.

The sources from whence the lists of Burgesses are derived are given under each session, but some little additional explanation may he useful here. It was the rule during most of the Seventeenth Century, and not infrequently in the early years of the Eighteenth, for the salaries of the Burgesses to be paid by their respective counties, and in the levy laid next after the session, these items would appear. In this way the names of many members are found in the county records.

The printed journals of the House of Burgesses in the Virginia State Library and the Congressional Library also afforded most valuable information, for though the names of the members are rarely given in full (except when there are two persons of the same surname) yet in the appointment of committees practically all of the surnames of members appear, and a comparison of these with other lists, together with an acquaintance with Virginia family history and with the county records, enables one to supply with certainty the Christian names. The journals, too, show what vacancies occurred during the existence of the Assembly, by the entry of requests from the House to the Governor to issue writs for new elections, and also furnish names in the action of that body on contested election cases.

The colonial almanacs (which were always published late in the year before that whose date they bear-as is the case now) contain lists which have in the main been found to be very accurate, of the members of the House in existence at the time when the almanac was printed.

The Journals of the Council, sitting as Upper House, also contain information, for they give the names of members of many committees which from time to time came up with bills passed by the Burgesses.

Of course all the remaining volumes of the Virginia Gazette are of much value for this purpose.

Assembled October 11th

There is no list of the members of this, the first Assembly held after the Restoration; though the orders and resolutions are printed. Hening II, 9-16.

Assembly of 1661-1676

The Assembly which convened for the first time on March 23d, 1660-61, lasted by various prorogations and adjournments for fifteen years, the last session beginning March 7, 1675-6. Though there was no general election during this long period the membership of the House of Burgesses must have been during the period considerably changed by deaths and seats made vacant by the acceptance of office. There are only two complete lists, 1663 and 1666; but
the county records supply the names of various persons who were certainly members during other years.

Assembly of 1685-86

This Assembly first met on October 1st, 1685, and on the same day was prorogued to the 2d of November following. It met on the day appointed and sat some time; but though several bills were passed, none received the Governor's assent. See Hening III, 29, note. The Ludwell list says an Assembly was called in i6S5, but that there was no session. The Jameson list contains 110 mention of this session. The Assembly met again, by prorogation, on October 20, i686. See also Hening III, 40, 41, in regard to the session of 1685.

Session begun November 2, 1685

In the "McDonald Papers," Virginia State Library, is a copy of the journal of the Council, sitting as Upper House of the General Assembly, copied from the English Public Record Office. The names of a number of Burgesses, probably nearly all present, appear in this journal, and are printed. The counties they represented, were, in most cases, easily obtained from other contemporary records:

Accomac: Col. William Kendall, Speaker.
Charles City: Major John Stith.
Elizabeth City or York: Henry Jenkins.
Elizabeth City: William Wilson.
Gloucester: Col. John Armistead.
Henrico: Captain William Randolph and Richard Kennon.
Isle of Wight: Lt. Col. Arthur Smith and Henry Applewhaite.
James City: Col. Thomas Ballard.
Lancaster: Captain William Ball and David Fox.
Lower Norfolk: Col. Lemuel Mason and Capt. Wm. Robinson.
Middlesex: Robert Dudley, Robert Beverley (vacated seat, on election as clerk of the House of Burgesses), Matthew Kemp (elected in place of Beverley), Christopher Robinson.
Nansemond: John Brasseur and Thomas Lear.
New Kent: Col. John West and Richard Littlepage.
Northampton: Captain John Custis.
Northumberland: Christopher Neale and Captain Peter Knight.
Rappahannock Col. William Lloyd and Arthur Spicer.
Surry : Major Samuel Swan and Major Arthur Allen.
Warwick: Richard Whittaker and Humphrey Harwood.
Westmoreland: Capt. Lawrence Washington and Wm. Hardinge [Hardidge].
Stafford: Samuel Hayward.
York: Thos. Cheesman and Thos. Barber.

Captain John Smith, William Anderson, John Anderson, and Captain Henry Batts [Batte] cannot be, with certainty, assigned to counties. A Captain John West, whose name appears as a member, may have been the same as Colonel John West, of New Kent, or he may have been the John West, who, about the same time, was a justice of Stafford county. The name "Capt. John Casslis," which twice appears, is believed to be an error of the copyist for " Custis." "Capt. John Lear," also appears as a member. This may be a mistake for Thomas Lear, or John Lear may have been elected during the session to fill a vacancy from Nansemond County. Thomas Lear was certainly a member. The records of Surry, Landaster, Northumberland and Henrico also show that the persons given tn the list above were members of both sessions, 1685, and 1686. Va. Mag.
Hist. and Biog. II, 131 for Hayward.

Session begun October 20, 1686

No list, except as shown above; but the membership was probably the same as in the preceding session.

Source: There is no mention of this session in Hening or in the Jameson list; in the LudweIl but there is, under 1688, one called April 19, no session." " No session " here means doubtless the same as in reference to 1685, that is, that none of the bills offered became laws. The list of members given above is derived from the English " Calendar of State Papers, Colonial Series, 1685-1688." We are indebted to Mr. Edw'd Wilson James, of Norfolk, Va., for the copy used. The members from Henrico are derived from the county records.

The Jameson list of sessions, frequently referred to, is that by Prof. J. F. Jameson, in the collections of the American Historical Association. The Ludwell list is one among the Ludwell Papers, Virginia Historical Society.

{Though not mentioned in Hening or in Jameson's list it seems that there was an Assembly in session in May, 1700. See Calendar Va. State Papers, Vol. I, under date May 26, 1700, Wm. Bassett, Burgess for New Kent, and William Byrd, Burgess for King and Queen, refused to take the oaths, believing that King William was dead, and new writs were issued to fill their places.
There would also seem to have been a session in October, 1700, not mentioned by Hening or Jameson. In the Norfolk County levy, laid January 16, 1700, are payments to Thomas Butt, services as Burgess, "27 days in October last," and Matthew Godfrey, "October last 28 days and December last 27 days." The Northuinberland levy, dated January 16, 1700-1701, provides payment for two sets of Burgesses, Col. George Cooper and Rodham Kenner, and Rodham
Kenner aqd Thomas Hobson. The Surry levy for 1700 also provides for two sets of Burgesses: Thomas Holt and Nathaniel Harrison, 5 days; and Nathaniel Harrison and Samuel Thompson, 24 days in December.

It appears from the Journal of this session that a Mr. Cary was a member. As both seats for Warwick and Elizabeth City were held by others, this may be Henry Cary of Henrico (the part now Chesterfield.)
Source: Journal of the House of Burgesses, Congressional Library.

Session of August I, 1740

There is no list of this session, but no doubt the membership was the same as in the session before.

Assembly of 1742-1747

This Assembly first met on May 6, 1742, and, by prorogations, on Sept. 4, 1744, Feb.20, 1746, July 11, 1746, and March 30, 1747, and was dissolved on April 8. The Journal of the first session of the House of Burgesses states that the Assembly was called to meet on May 6, 1741, but was
prorogued before convening. The Journal of the Council, sitting as Upper House, states the same fact. Both Journals, however, say that the first session began on May 6, 1742.

Though there is no other record of a session in 1741, the records of Essex show that in the levy for that county laid Nov.20, 1741, William Beverley and James Garnett were paid for their services as Burgesses. And the records of Northumberland show that on Nov.17, 1741, Peter Presley and Samuel Blackwell were elected members for that county. And in the same year William Fairfax and Thomas Harrison were elected for Prince William, and Andrew Monroe for
Westmoreland.

While there are no lists of the members of the Assembly, there are printed Journals of the sessions of 1742, in the Congressional Library, and of 1744 and 1745 in the Va. State Library, and also, in the latter, manuscript journals of the Council sitting as Upper House. These enable us to supply the names of most of the members.

There was a Mr. Lee a member in 1742, and perhaps other years, and a Mr. Cunningham, in 1745, 1746, and 1747, who cannot be identified or their counties fixed. A William Randolph was a member in 1745, 1746, and 1747, after the death of William Randolph of "Tuckahoe," wbo represented Goochland. This seems to be certainly William Randolph of "Wilton;" but he did not apparently represent Henrico or Goochland. Possibly it was Goochland.

Assembly of 1748-1749

This Assembly was summoned to meet on June 30, 1748; but before the date of meeting it was prorogued by proclamation to May 27 of that year, when it first actually met. Jameson's list (compiled in this instance from an imperfect journal of the House of Burgesses) states that there was one session extending from October 27, 1748, to May 11, 1749; but the journal of the Council sitting as Upper House, shows that the Assembly was prorogued on November 11, 1748, and met again on April 10, 1749, making two sessions. It is probable that though this Assembly did not meet again, it was kept in existence for a year or more after by successive prorogations.


Kemp, who was a member at the session beginning October 27, 1748, cannot be identified.

Assembly of October 1765

Jameson's list makes no mention of this Assembly, nor is there known to be any journal of it extant. No newspaper of that date is known to the compilers, and therefore no information can be obtained from that source. But there was certainly a general election in July, 1765, and the Burgesses then elected appear to have met in October. Washington, in a letter dated August 2, 1765, states that he had been elected for Fairfax, instead of Frederick for which he had previously sat, and that on the 28th of July he had received notice of the prorogation. The records of -Fairfax show that George Washington and John West were elected Burgesses on July 16. The records of Essex show that John Lee and Francis Waring were elected July 9, and the Va.

Sources: Journal in Va. State Library. As the new Assembly was summoned to meet on August 11, 1774, an election was held prior to that time. It is probable that some of the vacancies of this session were not filled. The members of this House reassembled on August 1st, 1774, as members of the first Convention held in Virginia.

Assembly of 1775-1776

[This Assembly was summoned to meet on August 11, 1774; but its assembling was delayed by various prorogations and it did not actually convene until June I, 1775. On June 24 it adjourned until October 12th when thirty-seven members were present; but as there was no quorum no business was transacted, and there was another adjournment to the first Monday in March succeeding. On March 7, 1776, thirty-two members met, but there was again no quorum and they adjourned to the first Monday in May next. On that day (May 6th), the journal records that several members met, but did neither proceed to business or adjourn." And below these words the clerk has written in heavy lettering, "Finis," and finally finished the record of the last of the Virginia Colonial Legislatures with an elaborate cork-screw like tail piece. Therefore, there was really only one session of this Assembly.]
