Subject: Garnett/Rowzee/Peyton/Yelverton connections
Date: Sat, 19 Feb 2000 15:40:26 EST
I have some questions... (:^D
In the process of doing research on my King line to find the connection to
the PEYTON family (My gg-grandfather was named Thomas Peyton King) and the
only PEYTON connection I have been aware of is through Judith Peyton (b. c
1666) m. William King. When I downloaded a large GenRep of the Peyton
family; to my surprise I ran across the following family:
John Rowzee Peyton was born 19 Oct 1754 in of Stony Hill, Stafford, VA, and
died 1798. He married Ann Hooe 1777. She was born 1754, and died 1833.
Children of John Peyton and Ann Hooe are:
i. John Howe Peyton, born 1778 in of Stony Hill, Stafford, VA; died
ii. Garnett Peyton.
iii. Lucy Peyton.
The name Garnett Peyton got my attention: Especially when coupled with the
name of ROWZEE. Checking back for earlier generations of this family I found
John Peyton was born 1691 in of Stony Hill, Stafford, VA, and died 18 May
1760. He married (1) Ann Waye 1730. She was born Abt. 1700, and died 1750. He
married (2) ELIZABETH ROWZEE 1752 in Essex Co., VA, daughter of JOHN ROWZEE.
Children of John Peyton and Ann Waye are:
i. Dr. Valentine24 Peyton, born Abt. 1730; died 28 Nov 1754.
ii. Ann Waye Peyton, born Abt. 1732 in Stafford Co., VA.
iii. Yelverton Peyton, born 1735 in VA; died Abt. 1790 in Stafford
iv. Elizabeth Peyton, born 05 Jun 1741; died 11 May 1748.
v. William Peyton, born 25 Jul 1742; died Bef. 1760.
vi. Henry Peyton, born Abt. 1744. He married Susanna Fowke 15 Mar
Children of John Peyton and Elizabeth Rowzee are:
i. John Rowzee Peyton, born 19 Oct 1754 in of Stony Hill, Stafford,
VA; died 1798.
ii. Dr. Valentine Peyton, born 20 Oct 1756.
[Unable to find more on the Rowzee connection in this family, I did a search
on the Rowzee family itself and found that Elizabeth Rowzee had a sister Mary
who was married to Capt. Thomas Jones!! The same Mary (Rouzie) Jones who was
the third wife of James Garnett (1691/92-1765)]
The Rowzee family is given as follows:

This shows a Garnett/Peyton connection through the Rowzee/Rouzie family plus
an additional Garnett/Noel connection through the Rowzee family. However,
there must be a further PEYTON connection to account for the extensive use of
that name in the Garnett family. Does anyone have information on this?
There also seems to be a YELVERTON connection through the PEYTON family with
the use of the name Yelverton PEYTON. We also have the use of this name in
naming more than one GARNETT son. Does anyone have more information on the
