DESCENDANTS OF EDWARD WYATT

Generation No. 1

1. EDWARD12 WYATT (HAUTE11, SIR GEORGE10, SIR THOMAS9, SIR THOMAS8 WIATT, THE
POET, SIR HENRY7, RICHARD6, GEOFFREY5, RICHARD (OR ROBERT?)4, WILLIAM3, ADAM2,
ADMIRAL1 WIAT) (1) was born 1621 in Boxley Manor, Kent Co., England (1), and died
Bet. 1672 - 1690 in Gloucester Co., VA (2). He married JANE CONQUEST (3),
daughter of EDWARD CONQUEST. She was born Abt. 1622 (3), and died Abt. 1698 (3).

Notes for EDWARD WYATT:
Edward came to Virginia about 1650, where he lived at "Middle Plantation", now
Williamsburg, VA. He is found there in 1652.

"Edward Wiatt married Jane Conquest, daughter of Edward Conquest (b. 1596) of
Bedfordshire, England. Edward Wiatt in 1665 was security for Edward (sic)
Conquest to serve James Miller of Surry in sea affairs (Adventures of Purse and
Person, p. 374). Four Conquest brothers, Lewis, Edmund, John and Richard, came
to Virginia about 1650, according to information supplied by Mr. Edwin Conquest
of Richmond, Virginia. Edward Wiatt patented 1230 acres on the Pianketank River,
7/20/1662, beginning and along the river to the mouth of Wading Creek, where he
lived (Land Book 4, p. 419 in Virginia State Library). He was given a grant of
land by Sissatickon, the Indian King (Mason, "Records of Gloucester", Vol. 1, p.
82). Also, Edward Wiatt, gentleman, patented John Clark's land at Middle
Plantation as an escheat and subsequently with his wife, Jane, sold it in 1667 to
George Poindexter and Otho Thorpe of Middle Plantation. The General Court,
however, decided 3/22/1671-76 the land belonged to John Clark of Wrotham in Kent
England . . ." (Otey, p. 68)

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
Edward probably came to Virginia with his uncle, Sir Francis Wyatt, when he was
sent to serve his second term as Royal Governor of the Colony of Virginia in
1639. "He was referred to in early records as Edward Wiatt, Gent. [gentleman],
and was mentioned April 23, 1646, as administrator of the estate of John Clarke
of York County whose widow, Hannah Clarke, he represented in 1652. " (1) He was
a landholder by 1663, owning 850 acres of land at Middle Plantation, later known
as Williamsburg. This land was purchased from John Clarke or his estate. In
1662, he obtained a patent for 1230 acres in Gloucester County along the
"Peankatank" River. He was granted this amount on the basis of having brought
over 25 people from England. "This property confirmed the gift of land in the
Piankatank area made to Edward Wiatt October 29, 1655, by Pindavako, the
protector of the young King of Chiskoyack Indians." (2) Edward and Jane sold
this land in 1667 to George Poindexter and Otto Thorp of Middle Plantation.

The Wiatt Plantation on the Piankatank was named Boxley for the Parish in Kent,
England, and was later divided into Old Upton Estate, New Upton Estate, and
Oakley Estate.

Edward is believed to have married Jane Conquest. The birth sequence of their
children is not known, but it is known that only Conquest lived to maturity.

From the records in the land office in Richmond, and the deed and will books
of Yorktown, we learn the names of some of the first residents of Middle
Plantation.

Among them was John Clerke, or Clark, nephew of Sir John Clerke, of Wrotham,
in Kent County, England, of whom there is a long pedigree in the "Visitation of
1621." He purchased 850 acres from Lieutenant Popeley, but died in 1646, without
any heirs in Virginia. Two other settlers were Edward Wyatt and his brother,
George, sons of Rev. Hawte Wyatt, minister of Jamestown, and nephews of Sir
Francis Wyatt, governor of Virginia in 1621-1626, and again in 1639-1642.

Generation No. 2

2. CONQUEST13 WIATT (EDWARD12 WYATT, HAUTE11, SIR GEORGE10, SIR THOMAS9, SIR
THOMAS8 WIATT, THE POET, SIR HENRY7, RICHARD6, GEOFFREY5, RICHARD (OR ROBERT?)4,
WILLIAM3, ADAM2, ADMIRAL1 WIAT) (3) was born Bet. 1652 - 1655 in Boxley Manor,
Gloucester Co., VA (4), and died Bet. 1708 - 1709 in Upton Plantation, Gloucester
Co., VA; buried at New Upton Estate (5). He married SALLIE PATE (5) 1669 in
Virginia (5), daughter of THOMAS PATE, COL.. She was born 1652 (5), and died
1750 (5).

Notes for CONQUEST WIATT:
Conquest lived in Gloucester County, Virginia, where, by 1673, we find him
serving as vestryman of Petsworth Parish (1690-1708), and as sheriff. All of
his sons eventually served as vestrymen, as well.

Mason, in his book, "Record of Colonial Gloucester, Vol. i, p. 83) notes that on
October 10, 1672, 530 acres of land were assigned to "Edward Wiatt, his father,
and now due unto Conquest, son and heir by the last will and testament of Edward
Wiatt, deceased." Elizabeth Otey (p. 69) elaborates, stating that "this land
adjoined Wiatt's old plantation in Virginia, and out of it, Old and New Upton
parishes were cut." By 1704, Conquest owned 2200 acres of land in Gloucester
County. His wife Sallie was the daughter of Col. Thomas Pate, who was a member
of the House of Burgesses in 1684, churchwarden in 1671, and vestryman of
Petsworth Parish for many years. (Vestry Book, Petsworth Parish, p. 1). His
mill was for many years a landmark used to identify lands in surveys.

It was Conquest and his family who began spelling the family name as WIATT, which
spelling continued to be used by most of the Virginia branches of the family
(though not all), but which was dropped by our branch in the 1850's.
(GENEALOGIES OF VIRGINIA FAMILIES, Vol. V, p. 571)

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
"Conquest was heir to his father's lands as a minor in 1672, and he was assigned
a patent of 350 acres on Hocaddis Creek, which adjoined the land he inherited
from his father. The patent refers to him as 'son and heir of Edward Wiatt,
deceased of Gloucester County, Virginia', and states that his father had died
testate. According to the Tax Poll of 1672, Conquest was the largest property
holder in Petsworth Parish with 2,200 acres. In 1674/75 his guardian brought
suit against Bartholemew Austin concerning a lease let by the Chiskoyack
Indians. Conquest served as vestryman of Petsworth Parish, Gloucester from June
1690 until his death circa 1708/09. He was also Sheriff and Justice of the Peace
for the County from 1705 until 1709.
"Conquest and Sallie Pate Wiatt had several children, at least five of whom
lived to adulthood." ("THE WIATT FAMILY OF VIRGINIA, by Alexander Lloyd Wiatt,
pp. 17, 18)

It is difficult to reconstruct Conquest's chart of descendants because the
records for Gloucester County were destroyed by fire in 1820 and again during the
Civil War. Mr. Alexander Wiatt, author of THE WIATT FAMILY OF VIRGINIA, states
that he is "reasonably sure" that at least four of Conquest's grandsons were
named "John." Mr. Wiatt is descended from a JOHN WIATT, JR., inferring that HIS
father's name must have been JOHN WIATT, SR., but Alexander Wiatt has not been
able to determine if John Jr. was a grandson or great-grandson of Conquest. He
believes, however, that the evidence points overwhelmingly to his line being
descended from Conquest and Sallie. He is strengthened in this belief by the
fact that "until the year 1900 or so", his branch of the family lived within
miles of the Boxley Plantation site.

Children of CONQUEST WIATT and SALLIE PATE are:
3. i. FRANCIS14 WIATT, b. 1670; d. Bet. 1730 - 1731, Gloucester Co., VA (Otey
says he died about 1745).
4. ii. CONQUEST WIATT, b. 1672; d. 1745.
5. iii. JAMES WIATT, b. 1674, Virginia (on p. 19, Mr. Wiatt gives his year of
birth as 1683); d. 1741, Virginia, as reported in a letter from his brother
Conquest Wiatt, addressed to Richard Wiat in Kent, England, dated July 07, 1745,
and reporting the deaths of his brothers James and Edward.
6. iv. EDWARD (EDWIN) WIATT, CAPT., b. 1677; d. Bet. 1744 - 1745, Virginia, as
reported in a letter from his brother Conquest Wiatt, addressed to Richard Wiat
in Kent, England, dated July 07, 1745, and reporting the deaths of his brothers
James and Edward.
7. v. JOHN W. WIATT, CAPT., b. 1683, VA; resided in Petsworth Parish, Gloucester
Co., VA; d. December 10, 1768, VA (or perhaps 1763 -- A.L. Wiatt gives both
dates).


Generation No. 3

3. FRANCIS14 WIATT (CONQUEST13, EDWARD12 WYATT, HAUTE11, SIR GEORGE10, SIR
THOMAS9, SIR THOMAS8 WIATT, THE POET, SIR HENRY7, RICHARD6, GEOFFREY5, RICHARD
(OR ROBERT?)4, WILLIAM3, ADAM2, ADMIRAL1 WIAT) (5) was born 1670 (5), and died
Bet. 1730 - 1731 in Gloucester Co., VA (Otey says he died about 1745) (5). He
married ELIZABETH (AKA ANNE) KENNON (6) Bet. 1690 - 1720, daughter of RICHARD
KENNON.

Notes for FRANCIS WIATT:
Francias was a prominent citizen, and served as a vestryman from 1710 to 1829.
At one time, he owned 2946 acres of land that he purchased in Spotsylvania
County, Virginia. (Spotsylvania Deed Book A, p. 365) He willed this land to his
younger children. His oldest son, Francis, inherited the family land in
Gloucester County, VA. (Otey, p. 69)

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
Francis' son Francis wrote a letter dated May 19, 1732 mentioning his father's
death. He also stated that his father left him an inheritance of only five
pounds.

"A letter dated November 4, 1732 in which Anne Wyat identifies herself as widow
of Francis Wiat, late of Virginia. The letter was written to Francis and Richard
Wiat of Kent, England. They were grandsons of Sir Francis Wyatt."

"Letter dated August 23, 1737 from William Wiatt of Virginia to Mr. Francis Wiat
of Kent, England. William states that he is the son of Francis Wiat of
Gloucester. He is 17 years of age. He reports that his elder brother John, who
was once at sea, came home a year ago to be with their mother but was recently
drowned. In a letter dated August 1, 1739, William says his father left a widow
and seven children."

"Francis was the heir of the Wiatt estate in Petsworth Parish and remained there
throughout his life, though he did purchase approximately 3,000 acres of land in
Spotsylvania County. He is reported to have married Elizabeth Kennon, but there
is also some evidence that his wife called herself Anne [see note pertaining to
letter written Nov. 4, 1732]. Francis was a vestryman of Petsworth Parish from
February 5, 1714 to 1730/31." ("THE WIATT FAMILY OF VIRGINIA", by Alexander
Lloyd Wiatt, pp. 17-19)

Children of FRANCIS WIATT and ELIZABETH KENNON are:
i. JOHN15 WIATT (7), d. 1736, VA, by drowning; left no issue(7). Described in a
family letter as having "been once at sea."
ii. EDWARD WIATT (7). "Edward sold his Spotsylvania land and went to the
Barbadoes." (Otey, p. 69) He sold the land to his brother and our ancestor,
Thomas. Edward was a trader of farm produce between the Colonies and the West
Indies. "Probably not married in 1756." (THE WIATT FAMILY OF VIRGINIA, by
Alexander Lloyd Wiatt, p. 19)
iii. ANN WIATT (7), d. VA; no issue; m. JOHN THURSTON (7) (aka John THRUSTON);
b. , "of Gloucester Co., VA" (7); d. 1751 (7). Anne died leaving no issue. She
left her property to her husband, John Thurston (or Thruston). "He was appointed
in 1791 trustee of the town of Louisville in Jefferson County [VA]." (Otey, p.
70, referring to Hening, Vol. 13, p. 299)

brothers James and Edward(8). He married GRACE (MARGARET?) NEWTON (8).

Notes for JAMES WIATT:
From THE WIATT FAMILY OF VIRGINIA, by Alexander Lloyd Wiatt, p. 19, 20:

James Wiatt (b. ca. 1683, d. 1741) James was the third son of Conquest Wiatt and
Sallie Pate. He married Grace Newton. He moved to Prince William County about
1728. It is often reported that he had eight children, but there is no proof of
this. There is a record of two children (William and Ann) in a claim for their
education in Westmoreland County.

Letter dated February 14, 1741 from Margaret Wiatt, widow of James, to Richard
Wiat, grandson of Sir Francis Wyatt in which she reports the death of her
husband, who left a son and a daughter, the elder being only 8.

He may also have married a second wife with the first name of Margaret.
Miscellaneous: On page 17 of his book, Alexander Wiatt gives James's birth year
as 1674; however, on page 19 he gives the year of 1683.
Residence: Removed to Prince William County, VA, about 1728.

James was a Captain in the Militia.

Children of JAMES WIATT and GRACE NEWTON are:
i. WILLIAM15 WIATT (9), b. Abt. 1732 (9).
ii. ANN WIATT (9), b. Abt. 1733 (9).


6. EDWARD (EDWIN)14 WIATT, CAPT. (CONQUEST13, EDWARD12 WYATT, HAUTE11, SIR
GEORGE10, SIR THOMAS9, SIR THOMAS8 WIATT, THE POET, SIR HENRY7, RICHARD6,
GEOFFREY5, RICHARD (OR ROBERT?)4, WILLIAM3, ADAM2, ADMIRAL1 WIAT) (10,11) was
born 1677 (12), and died Bet. 1744 - 1745 in Virginia, as reported in a letter
from his brother Conquest Wiatt, addressed to Richard Wiat in Kent, England,
dated July 07, 1745, and reporting the deaths of his brothers James and Edward
(12). He married (1) FRANCES NEWTON (12), daughter of JOHN NEWTON and MARY
ALLERTON. She was born Bet. 1673 - 1687, and died 1745. He married (2) MARGARET
COOK (13).

Notes for EDWARD (EDWIN) WIATT, CAPT.:
Edward lived in Gloucester Co., VA, but had property in Prince William Co., as
well.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
Edward was a captain in the Colonial Militia and was elected Vestryman of
Petsworth Parish from June 8, 1739 until his death in 1744/45. Alexander Wiatt
states that It is possible that he was married a second time to MARGARET (COOK)
BUCHANAN; however, he does not give the reason for this conjecture.

Descendants of Edward and his wife Frances are eligible for membership in the
Society of Mayflower Descendants. Frances was a daughter of Mary Allerton and
John Newton. Mary Allerton was a daughter of Isaac Allerton, Jr. and Elizabeth
Willoughby. Isaac Allerton, Jr. was the son of Isaac Allerton and Fear
Brewster. Fear Brewster was a daughter of Wm. Brewster of the Mayflower. (THE
WIATT FAMILY OF VIRGINIA, by Alexander Lloyd Wiatt, p. 20)

Edward's date of death was determined from a letter written by his brother
Conquest, dated July 7, 1745, reporting the death of his brothers Edward and
James to Richard Wiat in Kent, Eng.

in reality the wealthy and famous brother of our ancestor, Thomas.

11. THOMAS T.15 WIATT (FRANCIS14, CONQUEST13, EDWARD12 WYATT, HAUTE11, SIR
GEORGE10, SIR THOMAS9, SIR THOMAS8 WIATT, THE POET, SIR HENRY7, RICHARD6,
GEOFFREY5, RICHARD (OR ROBERT?)4, WILLIAM3, ADAM2, ADMIRAL1 WIAT) (36) was born
Abt. 1720 in "of Essex and Spotsylvania Counties, VA" (36,37), and died 1782 in
King and Queen Co., VA (37). He married SUSANNAH "SUKEY" EDMONDSON (38,39) Bet.
1745 - 1747 in Essex and Old Rappahannock, Virginia (or Spotsylvania Co.?) (40),
daughter of JOHN EDMONDSON and MARY JOHNSON. She was born 1728 in "of Essex and
Old Rappahannock, VA; of Gloucester Co., VA".

Notes for THOMAS T. WIATT:
Thomas was a successful planter, and a Justice of the Peace (The Wiatt Family of
Virginia, p. 19) "His estate in King and Queen, 400 acres, was valued; sons John
and Thomas received part as well as other Wiatts." (Otey, p. 71, citing Fleet's
"King and Queen," First Collection)

Thomas's wife Sukey was the granddaughter of Burgess Thomas Edmondson. "She was
still living in 1806 when she turned over a law suit about some slaves to her
grandson, Samuel Jordan Wiatt in Lynchburg (Lynchburg Deed Book A, p. 117). The
suit instituted during the lifetime of Thomas Wiatt against Gabriel Jones was
pending in the Court of Culpeper County." (Otey, p. 71)

"Thomas Wiatt went from Gloucester [County] to Hobbs Hole [Tappahannock] and was
there 8/27/1747 with Mr. Mills. In his youth, Thomas was a blade of sorts; a
letter from John Wiatt of Gloucester 7/5/1756 to Mariner William Wiatt of
Liverpool stated 'Thomas has quitted that pernicious practice, gaming, and has
the reputation of being the best planter in Spotsylvania.' A deed in
Spotsylvania, August 1749, from Thomas Wiatt of Essex and Sukey his wife,
conveyed 667 acres in Spotsylvania, part of the 1946 acres devised by his father,
Francis Wyatt, late of Gloucester County. In 1762, Thomas was a justice in
Spotsylvania." (Otey, pp. 71-72)

"With Hugh Rose, Patrick Rose, Edward Carter, Joshua Hudson, Gabriel Penn and
Lawrence Campbell, Thomas purchased a tract in Amherst County, apparently to
develop a town. Developing a town was the fashion of that time." (Otey, p. 72)

"In 1771 Thomas and Sukey conveyed 1100 acres in Amherst to their son John
(Amherst County Deed Book C, p. 246)." (Otey, p. 73)

Wade Hinshaw, in his compilation called "Encyclopedia of Quaker Genealogy," Vol.
VI, p. 289-294, talks about the establishment of the monthly meeting that was
centered at Lynchburg, and with which our family was intimately connected.

Children of THOMAS WIATT and SUSANNAH EDMONDSON are:
i. ANN16 WIATT (41), d. Bef. 1789, VA (41); m. JOHN EDMUNDSON (41), February 06,
1771, Amherst Co., VA (42); d. 1789, VA (43).
ii. JOHN E. WIATT, COL. (43), d. Abt. 1827, Lynchburg, VA; buried at "Radcliffe"
in Campbell Co., the county seat of his son-in-law, Capt. William Norvell (44);
m. WILHELMINA "MINA" JORDAN (45); b. 1750 (45).

Notes for JOHN E. WIATT, COL.:
"Colonel John Wyatt, first of the name in Campbell County, was a colonel in the
Revolutionary Army. He married Wilhelmina Jordan, daughter of Samuel Jordan, and
a sister of Mrs. William Cabell and Mrs. John Cabell. Caroline Wyatt, daughter
of Colonel John Wyatt, married Edmund Winston; Anne Wyatt married Captain William
Norvell. Mrs. Hays Otey was Sallie Elizabeth Wyatt; her father was Robert Wyatt,
who married Clarissa Payne, of Seneca Creek neighborhood in Campbell County.
Another descendant of this family was Mr. John Wyatt, who taught mathematics in
the High School here for many years." (Lynchburg and Its Neighbors, p. 438)

In a contemporary article (see below, "Sketches and Recollections of Lynchburg"),
Col. John Wiatt and his wife were described as being among the first residents of
Lynchburg, Virginia, and as being the social leaders of the new town. He was a
strongly religious man, and the writer of the article remembered him as sitting,
richly dressed, on a high seat in the church, and representing to the children of
the town their ideal of fine manhood. He is said to have been a kind and gentle
man.

Col. Wiatt's wife, Wilhelmina "Mina" Jordan, shares an ancestor with my
husband's own mother, Barbara Anne Hoeppner. The emigrant Samuel Jordan was the
wealthiest and most influential leader of the Quaker community in Isle of Wight
County, Virginia. Barbara's grandfather, Zimri Henri Lewis, was descended from
this first Samuel, as was Mina's father.

"In 1771 Thomas and Sukey [Wiatt] conveyed 1100 acres in Amherst County to their
son John (Amherst County Deed Book C, p. 246). Col. John Wiatt moved to Amherst
County before the Revolution. With other gentlmen trustees he applied ot the
General Assembly in 1785 to pass an act to establish a town in Amherst County,
Cabellsburg, and in 1791 Madison. (Hening, Vol. 12, p. 220; Vol. 13, p. 296)
John Wiatt's 'seat' in Amherst is what is now the central part of 'Sweet Briar
House.'" (Otey, p. 73)

Col. Wiatt's will is recorded in the Lynchburg Corporation Court, Book A., p.
212, having been proved in 1827. (Otey, p. 73)rev war soldier, who lived in
Lynchburg [VA] directly opposite Capt. James Warwick

"John Wiatt of Amherst County later moved to Lynchburg and died there. He was
buried at 'Radcliffe' in Campbell County, the county seat of Capt. William
Norvell, his son-in-law. The Norvell family cemetery on the outskirts of
Lynchburg has since been destroyed by the Norfolk and Western Railroad's
purchase. Of the half acre burial ground to be reserved, which was always named
in every transfer of the property, only one quarter of an acre remains and the
promised access in perpetuity to the property apparently destroyed." (Otey, p.
74)

The following is quoted in its entirety from pp. 226-228,
SKETCHES AND RECOLLECTIONS OF LYNCHBURG, by the oldest resident (published 1858)

Colonel John Wiatt, for many years a valued and beloved citizen of Lynchburg, was
a native of the lower country. He was a most gallant gentleman, combining all
the courtesy of the old Cavalier of Virginia, with feelings the most ardent,
generous and affectionate. When a young man he married Wilhelmina Jordan, a
sister of Mrs. William Cabell [one of the most influential men in Lynchburg], of
Union Hill, and Mrs. John Cabell, of Buckingham. Colonel Wiatt served with
bravery in the Revolutionary war, and was present at the battle of Guilford
Court-house; but shortly after the termination of the war, he came to reside on
his plantation in the county of Amherst, and a few years later he removed to
Lynchburg, where, to the day of his death, he continued a useful and revered
resident.

Mrs. Mina Wiatt was a lady of great beauty and vivacity, possessing a fund of
wit, refined by good humor, and such an acquaintance with human nature as enabled
her in a short time, with a ready tact, to form a just estimate of all with whom
she came in contact. She was, in old age, very lovely and graceful, and her
appearance as a young bride was thus described by a lady [Mrs. Anne Cabell, at
that time Miss Carrington, and afterwards Mrs. Wm. Cabell, of Union Hill] who met
her at her bridal party at Union Hill: "Mrs. Wiatt was a blooming, beautiful
woman, with brilliant black eyes and a profusion of dark hair. She was habited
[dressed] in pink brocade trimmed with silver, with a double skirt of the same;
her hair was dressed wth pink and silver, and done up in cushions; and her
sparkling jewelry set off her elegant appearance, when slowly going through the
dignified, graceful movements of the minuet."

Colonel Wiatt and his excellent wife, doubtless, in a great measure led and
directed the taste of the infant town of Lynchburg, of which they were the
earliest settlers. Of cultivated minds and of great skill in horticulture and
gardening, and perfect adepts in every sort of domestic manufacture, Col. and
Mrs. Wiatt, by their wise and prudent counsels, greatly assisted housekeepers
younger than themselves.

They had been reared under the usages and observances of the Church of England;
but after the Revolutionary war, that denomination becoming nearly extinct, they
worshipped with great liberality in other churches, and from the establishment of
the first Presbyterian Church of Lynchburg, they regularly attended there and
communed. Col. Wiatt being deaf, was accommodated with an elevated seat, nearly
on a line with the pulpit; and those accustomed in their childhood to see there
his venerable form, in wrapt attention, feel, on entering that old church,
something wanting, when they gaze on the vacant spot where sat Colonel John
Wiatt.

This excellent couple lived to great age, Mrs. Wiatt surviving for some years her
husband, who died in 1827. Of this large family alone survive Mrs. Caroline
Winston, of Amherst, and Colonel [sic, should read "Captain"] Samuel Wiatt, both
of whom are well known and appreciated in our community. (continued under
children Samuel and Caroline's names)

Notes for WILHELMINA "MINA" JORDAN:
Mina's father, Samuel Jordan, was the Burgess from Buckingham, VA, 1766-1768.
The JORDAN's are ancestors of ours on the maternal side as well as on the
paternal side. The original ancestor, Samuel of Isle of Wight, was a wealthy and
influential Quaker who is known as the progenitor of a large and illustrious
family.

iii. THOMAS WIATT, ESQ.(46), b. Abt. 1770, Virginia; residence in Amherst Co.,
VA; d. 1828; m. SARAH ELIZABETH "LIZZIE" OR "SALLY" MILLER (47), May 18, 1793,
Campbell Co., VA; Thomas Higginbotham, surety (48); b. 1773 (49); d. 1857 (49).

Notes for THOMAS WIATT, ESQ.:
Thomas, Esq., the suspected father of our "Mississippi Thomas" (1810- ), was
clerk and recorder of the Corporation Court of Lynchburg, VA, from the latter
part of the 18th century until his death in 1828. He was one of the founders of
the town. His was a sterling reputation, as can be seen from the article below.

His wife Sarah was a devout Christian, and a letter she wrote concerning her
faith follows below. Sarah's mother, Mary MOORMAN, was the daughter of Quaker
parents. Her ancestors -- and therefore Sarah's ancestors -- were Quakers and
include ancestors of our own maternal line through Barbara Anne Hoeppner, whose
grandfather was a birthright Quaker !!!!

Of Sarah's father, John Miller, nothing is known except that he came from England
and was one of the first settlers of Lynchburg, VA. John Miller went to Campbell
County from Amherst. In 1784 he bought from Thomas and Dulce Wright of Amherst
County 280 acres lying on Lynch's Ferry road which he willed with other Amherst
land, bought in 1806. (Amherst County Records, 1784, Book E, p. 546) He bought
on 15 September 1796 Lot No. 28 in Lynchburg from Samuel Irvine and wife and
Samuel White. He married Mary Moorman Johnson, widow of Benjamin Johnson (by
whom she had four sons). By Mary's second marriage to John Miller, she had six
children, including Sarah.

Other interesting facts about the WIATT family of Amherst & Caroline Counties:
1. Thomas and Sarah's son, Dr. Edwin Wiatt, AND Sarah's brother, Pleasant M.
Miller, were both married to daughters of the Governor of Tennessee.
2. Thomas and Sarah's daughter Nancy became the ancestress of Lady Astor, the
first female peer in the Kingdom of England. Her husband was John Jacob Astor,
who went down on the Titanic.
3. Thomas and Sarah were also the ancestors of the famous Langehorne sisters of
Virginia, arbiters of international society and fashion.
4. Charles Dana Gibson, the originator of "The Gibson Girl" look that dominated
Victorian fashion, married their gg-grandaughter, Irene Langhorne, and took his
inspiration from her beautiful mother as his model for "the look."

From "Sketches and Recollections of Lynchburg", by an anonymous author who styled
herself as "the Oldest Inhabitant", published 1858:

"THOMAS WIATT, Sr.

'In the heraldry of Heaven, goodness precedes greatness.'
Bishop Horne

THOMAS WIATT was a gentleman of great worth and excellence, and a younger brother
of Colonel John Wiatt. They were descended from an English family of that name,
conspicuous in the days when our State was a colony. In the year 1827, Mr. Wiatt
resided in the house owned and occupied by Dr. Robert Early [bishop of the
Methodist? Church]. When a young man, Thomas Wiatt was united in marriage to
Sarah Miller, a daughter of one of Lynchburg's earliest and most estimable
settlers. A few years since, the ancient dwelling of Mr. Miller remained a short
distance above the place where now stands Mr. Jesse Hare's stately building. It
was a long, lone dwelling, with shelving porches, but its place is now doubtless
supplied by some more modern structure.

Mrs. Wiatt was very congenial to her husband, in the posession of a disposition
most cheerful and buoyant, together with a lively wit, tempered with sweetness of
temper and good humor. Passing through various alternations and reverses, they
yet preserved, unharmed, these happy dispositions. Active and useful members of
the Methodist Church, they proved by their walk and profession of religion that

"Her ways are ways of pleasantness,
And all her paths are peace."

This good man died in the summer of 1828, leaving a large family, several of whom
survive. His worthy and venerable wife still continues on earth her pilgrimage,
having for many years survived her three daughters." {Sarah died in 1757, shortly
before the book was published.)

* * * * * * * *
Thomas's daughter, Nancy, is referred to in one source as follows: '... Nancy
Wythe. Nancy was born about 1774. Granddaughter of George Wythe, signer of
Declaration of Independence and Tom Jefferson's mentor. Married 3 times - Nancy
is second." The statement that Nancy was the "granddaughter of George Wythe" is
not true -- George Wythe had no children and no descendants! However, it does
appear that Nancy's mother, Sallie Miller, was in some way related to Mr. Wythe's
family. I am still determining the connection.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
As mentioned earlier, Thomas's son, Dr. Edwin Wiatt, married Eliza BLOUNT,
daughter of the Governor of Tennessee. Thomas's granddaughter married a
LANGEHORNE whose family nickname was "Chilly." It may be significant that in
Covington County, MS., one of our family's home counties, we find a "CHELLY
BLOUNT" in the county by 1841. This is just shortly before our Thomas P. appears
to have arrived in Mississippi. Keeping in mind that our Thomas apparently went
to Jasper County, Jasper and Covington Counties are "kitty corner" to one
another, the southwestern corner of Jasper almost connecting with the
northeastern corner of Covington. Could this Chelly have been associated with
the family in some way, and perhaps encouraged Thomas, the youngest son and not
likely to receive any sizeable inheritance, to come out the Mississippi Territory
and try his luck? NEED TO RESEARCH CHELLY BLOUNT TO LEARN HIS FAMILY
CONNECTIONS.

Here follows an undated letter, written from Sarah [aka Sally or Lizzie] Wiatt to
Mrs. Elizabeth Early, the wife of Bishop Early;

(on the cover)
Mrs. Elizabeth Early
Lynchburg
(in pencil)
Mrs. . . . . . . C. Warwick

Dear Sister Early,

Having concluded to set off to Amherst Courthouse tomorrow I should have gone to
see you but thought it imprudent for me to do so at this time, particularly as I
am going to the country and there might be a probability of my taking the
dreadful disease which now threatens us. As I have thus been deprived of a
personal interview with you, you will not think it strange for me to adopt this
mode of interrogating you as to whether you feel any firmer reliance on "Jesus,
the friend of sinners" than when I saw you last. I complied with your request
when I got home Monday evening and am thankful to tell you that I wrestled not in
vain. My own heart was enabled to rejoice in God my Savior. Was my dear sister
strengthened? but even if you were not, then don't be discouraged but in time to
call upon Him and "if so poor a worm as I" can help you by covenanting to meet
you every evening at a throne of grace until you receive the full witness that
you are wholly the Lord's I will rejoice to serve you or any other soul that
desires to serve God with an undivided heart -- if you are too unwell to answer
this note, write to me at Papa's and let me hear that you are accepting the
crumbs from the Master's table and cherishing you, huging (sic) them close to
your heart until it please our wise Benefactor to give you all He has in reserve
for you if you are only faithful; don't think me presumptuous for thus writing to
you, I feel bound to leave no feeble effort unmade in my power to strengthen one
of my Father's little flock. Oh, what an endeavur (sic), titles by which we are
permitted to address Him -- and even if I fail to effect that end -- my heart
will be made to rejoice under a feeling sense that the effort, however feeble,
has been made to advance the glory of God. May His love which casts out all fear
fill your heart is my sincere and daily prayer. Farewell.

Sarah L. Wiatt
May 14th

I am now ready to set off so you know deprived of the pleasure of hearing from
you at present, be sure and write to me whilst I am at the Court House.
Farewell,
S. L. Wiatt

(Year is not given, but Sarah's father died in 1812, so this may have been
written prior to that year since she mentions "Papa's house" as though he is
still living.) Sarah may have been related to "Samuel Miller, born on June 30,
1792 in Albemarle County, who made a fortune buying and selling stocks and bonds.
Upon his death, he left money to establish the Miller Home for Girls in
Lynchburg and the Miller Home for Boys in Albemarle County. He also left Miller
Park to the City of Lynchburg for the benefit of all citizens." (from the City
of Lynchburg's home page.)

The Society of Friends, or Quakers, was the first religious group to settle in
Lynchburg. Although Charles Lynch, Sr. was a Roman Catholic, his wife, Sarah and
daughter were instrumental in founding the South River Meeting House of the
Society of Friends, the city's first house of worship. Although there were many
Quakers among early settlers in Lynchburg, the numbers decreased as agriculture
and industry in the South became increasingly dependent upon slavery, which the
Friends opposed. The Meeting House, located on Fort Avenue, was restored and is
now part of Quaker Memorial Presbyterian Church.

A favored historical site in Lynchburg today is the Miller-Claytor House. Built
in 1791 by John Miller, a tavern owner and later owned by Samuel Claytor, the
Miller-Claytor House was the fourth house to be constructed in Lynchburg. It was
moved from the corner of 8th Street and Church Street to Riverside Park and
restored in 1936 as a Sesquicentennial project of the Lynchburg Historical
Society. (Was this the home that Sarah grew up in?) According to local legend,
Thomas Jefferson, who was visiting the owners of the Miller-Claytor House on his
way to his Poplar Forest home, took a bite of the "poisonous love apple."
Supposedly, this was the first time anyone had eaten this fruit, which we now
call the tomato, in Virginia.

* * * * * * * *
THOMAS AND SARAH'S NAMES ARE GIVEN WITH DISCLAIMERS BECAUSE WE HAVE NOT YET
PROVEN THAT THESE ARE OUR ANCESTORS. HOWEVER, THE PREPONDERANCE OF EVIDENCE
LEANS HEAVILY IN THEIR FAVOR. Some records say that Thomas WIATT, son of Thomas
and Sally, died in without leaving issue. We would appreciate it if you, dear
surfer, can offer any corroboration of this "fact." We suspect that it is simply
an explanation for the lack of information about Thomas in the Virginia records.

I believe that this couple is the correct set of parents for our Thomas for the
following reasons, but ADDITIONAL RESEARCH NEEDS TO BE DONE. The following clues
have led me to choose this couple as the most promising choice for our ancestors:

(1) Based on the clue of the use of the name "CHISWELL" in our family's given
names, we suspected that our ancestral family would have lived in Campbell or
Caroline county, Virginia, because the only WYATT families connected to the
CHISWELL family were from that area. Thomas WIATT who married Sarah "Sally"
MILLER was living in Campbell Co., VA, at this time.

(2) We know from the 1850 Mississippi Census that our Mississippi ancestor,
Thomas P. Wiatt, was born in Virginia about 1810; therefore, Thomas P.'s mother,
at least, must have still been living in Virginia at least until 1810. Thomas
WIATT, Esq. married Sarah "Sally" MILLER 18 May 1793 in Campbell Co., VA. This
couple was bearing children during the correct time frame. He is named Thomas
like "our" Thomas. His wife is named Sarah, and our Thomas named his daughter
Sarah. These facts alone would not be very significant, except that

(3) Thomas was the brother of Capt. John E. WIATT. Our own Great-grandfather's
name was John E. WIATT !!!! There are many John WIATTs, but to date I have found
only this one John "E." WIATT.

(4) In addition, the only other Thomas P. WIATT that I have found in almost four
years of searching also was from Campbell County, VA -- living there in 1860,
which, incidentally, is the same year that our "Mississippi Thomas" is MISSING
from the Jasper County Census! Had he finally been able to arrange to return to
Virginia to receive his inheritance after his mother died in 1857?

(5) It is in the family of Thomas, Esq. and Sarah that the only conjunctions of
the WIATT and CHISWELL families has been found to date. There are several male
descendants in our line who bear the middle name CHISWELL, indicating a tradition
of this name in the family. This couple had a son named "Chiswell", as well as a
daughter, Ann "Nancy" WIATT (b. 02 Feb 1797 VA, d. 01 Aug 1834, VA), who married,
05 Dec 1816, Chiswell DABNEY. Chiswell had first been married to Martha Ann
NORVELL, who was the granddaughter of Capt. John E. WIATT. Also note that in
1860, a CHISWELL WYATT, who was probably a close relative, was born in Campbell
Co., VA.

(6) Their branch of the WIATT family is descended from Conquest WIATT and Sally
PATE. Note that our Thomas has a middle initial of "P.", which was often given
to members of this family in memory of the PATE family, a well-known and
influential family in Virginia.

(7) Our family has a tradition that we are descended from a WIATT who owned a
shipping company in England. Thomas Esquire and Col. John E. WIATT were the sons
of Thomas WIATT, Sr., who was the BROTHER of William "The Mariner" WIATT.
William had been born in Virginia, but was a staunch Tory and went back to
England, where he established a large and prosperous shipping company! Several
of his sons came back to America, but we do not appear to be descended from any
of them. It seems that our family legend, as with most family legends, has
become a little garbled in transmission. Our ancestor is not the shipping
magnate, but rather his brother!

(8) It is also important that all of our own family's traditional names are found
in this particular Virginia WIATT family: Chiswell and Ann "Nancy" (WIATT)
DABNEY had among their children a daughter named Sarah, a son named John, and a
daughter named Lucy. (Lucy was a favored name in both the DABNEY and WIATT
families.) Of course Nancy's father was named Thomas, and her mother Sarah,
which would account for the names found in our family. Then there is the very
important JOHN E. WIATT, brother of Thomas Esq. There may even have been some
prior CHISWELL connection in our WIATT line (Thomas and Sally named one of their
own children Chiswell, according to some records), but obviously the name
CHISWELL would have entered the line no later than 1816 with the marriage of
Nancy WIATT to Chiswell DABNEY. This is perfect timing for the name to appear in
our own line with the birth of our founder's son, Thomas Chiswell WYATT, in
1840. He would have been named after his father's brother AND brother-in-law.
"Robert", not a common WYATT name, is also used in the Campbell Co. family, as in
ours. Even the name WINSTON is used by Thomas's relatives, for a number of his
family were related in various ways to this distinguished family. (My husband's
uncle is named Robert Winston Wyatt.)

It is conceivable that CHISWELL was a surname from a female ancestor. However,
to date I have found no potential parental WIATT couples which include a wife or
grandparent with the surname CHISWELL, so . . . I am forced to the conclusion
that the name was carried forward for some other reason within this one branch of
the WIATT family.

In the DABNEY family, the name CHISWELL was originally given in memory of Col.
John CHISWELL, a distant relative, and an early and influential settler of
Virginia. The name CHISWELL was well known and highly respected in Virginia.
The family is listed among the first settlers of the Shenandoah Valley of
Virginia, along with such illustrious Virginia families as the MERRIWETHERs and
the LEWISes (families with whom the DABNEY line is intimately connected). Col.
John CHISWELL of England discovered the lead mining potential in Wythe County,
Virginia (note: WYTHE is another spelling for the name WYATT!) in the 1750's and
arranged for Welsh and English funding of a mining venture. The DABNEY family
was "Welch" and even wrote some of their legal documents in the Welsh language.
The CHISWELL family eventually spread into Tennessee, West Virginia, and other
Southern states, but has remained seated primarily in Maryland and Virginia. It
will be interesting to discover what our connection to the CHISWELL family
actually is on the WIATT side.

The Rev. Mr. F. G. Smith was one of the first ministers to pastor at the
Episcopal Church of Lynchburg. According to "Sketches and Recollections of
Lynchburg," p. 174, "About the year 1822, or 1823, the Rev. F. G. SMITH
established himself in Lynchburg, making his home in the house of Thomas Wyatt,
where, during the lifetime of that excellent man, he remained."



12. JOHN15 WIATT (CONQUEST14, CONQUEST13, EDWARD12 WYATT, HAUTE11, SIR GEORGE10,
SIR THOMAS9, SIR THOMAS8 WIATT, THE POET, SIR HENRY7, RICHARD6, GEOFFREY5,
RICHARD (OR ROBERT?)4, WILLIAM3, ADAM2, ADMIRAL1 WIAT) (50) was born Abt. 1704.

Notes for JOHN WIATT:
Alexander Wiatt believes that this John is the senior John, father of Mr. Wiatt's
"John, Jr." ancestor. He has no proof of this, and makes this clear in his book,
which shows his line of descent beginning at CAPTAIN JOHN WIATT, Jr.
(1732-1805). However, I have chosen to indicate the relationship in my data,
with the disclaimer that the relationship may be invalid.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
In the printed version of his book, Alexander L. Wiatt gives as the children of
Conquest and Nancy, three children: this John (b. 1704) along with Conquest (b.
1735, d. 1815) and a daughter who married Richard Royston. However, in the copy
of the book he sent me, Mr. Wiatt noted in handwriting, "John (b. ca. 1704, d.
_____): I believe this John was the father of my John Wiatt (1732-1805) &
Conquest 1735 and a daughter who married Royston & was the mother of Wiatt
Royston." I must agree with him that this seems far more likely than John (b.
ca. 1704) having a BROTHER born 31 years later in 1735!

Children of JOHN WIATT are:
i. DAUGHTER16 WIATT (50), m. RICHARD ROYSTON (50).
ii. JOHN WIATT, JR., CAPT. (51), b. May 15, 1732, O.S., in Virginia, according
to a family Bible (52,53); d. January 05, 1805, VA, again according to a family
Bible (54,55); m. MARY ELIZABETH TODD (56,57), November 13, 1756, VA (58); b.
February 05, 1724/25, Gloucester Co., VA (58); d. November 09, 1794, VA (59).

Notes for JOHN WIATT, JR., CAPT.:
Capt. John "was a merchant in Gloucester and Prince William Counties (Virginia),
where he went to live in 1767, as he stated in his suit, "Wiatt vs. Buckner."
The date of his return to Gloucester is unknown. He must have lived in Prince
William County for at least 30 years because after the death of Dr. John Graham
in 1796, John Wiatt held land in trust in Prince William for Elizabeth Graham and
her children, including Mary. Mary was the wife of John's son William Edward
Wiatt. John Wiatt's military record shows that during the Revolutionary War he
joined Capt. Jonathan Clark's company of the 8th Regiment of Virginia Forces of
Foot commanded by Col. Abraham Bowman at Valley Forge on May 14, 1778. His pay
was $6.67 a month. John Wiatt remained in Capt. Clark's Company until June 1778,
when he transferred to Capt. Abraham Kirkpatrick's Company of the 4th, 8th and
12th Virginia Regiments of Foot commanded by Col. James Wood at Camp Paramus. He
is found on company muster and payrolls in Capt. Kirkpatrick's Company at Camps
Paramus, White Plains and Robinson's Farm. In October 1778 John Wiatt shows up
in Lt. Col. Robert Ballard's Company at Middlebrook and remains on the company
muster and payrolls until he was given a furlough to Virginia in December 1778
until April 15, 1779. he did not return to the above companies and was supposed
later to have been in the command of General Scott "to the South." The records
do not mention him again even though the end of the war was nearly two years
away. It is believed that his title "Captain" refers to his rank in the Virginia
Militia. John's full name is believed by many family members to have been John
Edward Wiatt, Jr."

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Mt. Hope, Fairfax County, Virginia
January 8, 1767.

My dear Brother Conquest:

It has not been for the want of a due affection that I have conversed so little
with you in an epistolary way since your removal from us. Your omission of the
Golden Rule of doing unto others as you would be done by, has perhaps occasioned
me to be rather remiss; but the voice of your complaints having reached me, I am
willing to silence them by removing the cause. I cannot, however, promise that my
lines shall be made acceptable to you by a communication of good news, for indeed
I find such a call of industry at home, in a two-fold scene, that I seldom look
or ask for any other intelligence abroad than to know whether our friends are in
the fruition of health. This blessing with the additional one of domestic peace
and competency, they pretty generally enjoy.

I hear through Uncle 'Cajah that Thomas Sherley, from an impulse of duty, had
come to the conclusion to superintend a school. I have no doubt, qualified as he
is, it will prove a blessing for the children who may be so favored as to come
under his tuition.

I am glad to find, by your letter to Mother, that you are pleased with your
present situation; not only because I wish you happiness, but I look upon it to
be the indispensable duty of a Christian to be contented and humbly thankful for
such a distribution of the good things of this life as Providence may see fit to
assign him. A cheerful, resigned contentment is certainly the most acceptable
tribute of gratitude that we can pay to the Divine Disposer of events, the Author
of all our mercies; and since we learn, both from observation and experience,
that unmixed felicity is not the portion of this life, let us, my dear Conquest,
endeavor to secure that happiness in the next by duly improving the fleeting
moments as they pass; observing with a persevering and steady eye the council and
instruction of that oracle within, which ever leads its true votaries in the way
of self-denial and the Cross.

I have, my dear brother, been uneasy because of your being situated where it is
to be feared there are too few to whom you ought to give the right hand of
fellowship, or converse with, upon subjects that would be to your edification.
The way of life and salvation, as our blessed Lord declares, is straight and
narrow, and if we be not exceedingly careful and watchful ourselves, we shall
wander from the path. Therefore let us be diligent in well doing, for "it is the
diligent hand that maketh rich."

I am, as ever,
Your affectionate sister,
Frances Scott

Mr. Conquest Wyatt
Charlottesville, Virginia

The letter writer, Frances (Wyatt) Scott and the Thomas Shirley she mentions in
her letter were first cousins, both being grandchildren of Edward Wyatt
(1677-1745), of Gloucester Co., VA.

Thomas and Anne (Wyatt) Shirley's eldest son was Thomas Shirley. Please note that
the letter writer's uncle, named Thomas Shirley (husband of Anne Wyatt), was dead
at the time the letter was written, so he certainly couldn't be the Thomas
Shirley mentioned in the letter.

Notes for JOHN WYATT:
Because John's father was a mariner, he and his eldest sister were born in
England. Prior to the American Revolution, he livedin Botetourt Co., VA. He
joined the Continental Army in 1778 and served with distinction until the close
of the war. He participated in the Seige of Yorktown. After the Revolutionary
War, he removed to Mercer Co., Kentucky, where he remained until 1794, at which
time he moved again, this time to Harrison Co., KY. He lived there for
thirty-one years. "He was remembered by his grandchildren as an old English
gentleman, with powdered hair, knee britches, silver knee and shoe buckles, and
silk stockings." (pp. 545, 546, "Colonial Families of the Southern States of
America: WYATTS of Virginia, by Stella Pickett Hardy)

I have doubts about some of this children given in this family. The birth dates
don't make a lot of sense. ADDITIONAL RESEARCH NEEDED HERE.
