For Bedford County –  TO BE USED AS A GUIDE ONLY:
The following information was submitted by Mrs. Barbara M. Hunt:


“Llewellyn is one of the most famous of the old Welsh names.   Wales united with England 300 years before Scotland, and the Llewellyns started moving into England from Wales about the time of Edward I.   they were great fighters and were noted as joining the English army and joining in many battles.   Shakespeare’s ‘Fluellen’ is a jocular way of spelling the name.   (From ‘English Surnames’ by C. M. Mathews).

“The first Llewellin (one spelling) to be on record in America was Daniel Llewellin who patented land in Charles City, Va. In 1653.   In 1680 he was a Justice and Captain of Militia. (Va. Hist. Mag. Vol 4, p. 6)   Dnalie Llewellin, who was Justice of Charles City in 1699 and 1702 was probably his son.   A third Daniel Llewellin, who is probably the grandson of the first mentioned, is mentioned in the Amelia Co. records as receiving a gift of 200 acres from Charles Burkes (who patented 100 acres originally in this country.)   the nature of this gift was a wedding present because Daniel Llewellin is on record as having married Mary Burke in 1763, the date of the gift.

“Now we move up to 1785 in Prince Edward Co. which was formed in 1755 from part of Amelia Co and therefore can be assumed as the same location.   We now find the following recorded Llewellins.   (However the name is now spelled Lewellen which is as we find our direct ancestor).   The Lewellens in Prince Edward co. in 1785 are:

Sons of Daniel:   Jesse (had sons John, Jesse, Claiborne & Moses), Charles, William (died 1790, left 2 sons Enoch & Aaron), Richard (son of Daniell & Mary Burkes Lewellen)
Grandsons of Dan’l:   Thomas (died 1788 childless), Anderson (brother of Thomas), Moses, John (died 1788 childless, son of Jesse Sr)

“(In the above Daniel’s Will, proved 18 July 1785, he left everything to his wife Mary, to be delivered upon her death to their son Richard, and to be distributed among their other children and grandchildren at Mary’s choice.   This indicates that Richard was the oldest son, but doesn’t give us any information as to the actual names of the other sons, if any.)

“However, by comparing records from several sources, we now know that there were several Lewellens in this area which is a short days ride (by horse) to Campbell and Bedford Counties, where we find two William Lewellens, both married in the year 1821 in Bedford County.   These could e the sons of the brothers, Enoc and aaron, the sons of William, who are not found in the records of Prince Edward Co. after the death of their father in 1790.   Perhaps their widowed mother moved with them to the nearby county of Bedford.   We do know that the first William Lewellen married Hannah Smith 17 February 1783 in Prince Edward Co so it does give us her maiden name.

“The other William married a Miss Hodges in February of 1821.

“Our William J. Lewellen married Susannah Tyler on 6 August 1821, in Bedford Co. and her brother John Tyler acted as Surety.   (Surety meant someone who acted as ‘security’ in guaranteeing debts to be paid, usually the dowry in a marriage.)


“William and Susannah were married in Bedford Co. Virginia on 6 August 1821.   They lived there for the next ten or more years and had most if not all of their seven children there.   (We do know that their daughter Sarah who was the youngest daughter and third from youngest child, was born in Virginia as stated in the 1850 U.S. Census when she was the wife of Hardin R. Wright, aged 18.)

“About 90% of the population in these times was making a living by farming and William was one of the 10% otherwise engaged.   In 1823 in Bedford Co. William J. Lewellen is listed as selling some personal property, including a set of shoemaker’s tools, so it may have been his trade.

“In the 1830’s his family migrated to Ohio and we found them in 1840 living near their sisters and parents (Tylers) in Highland co. town of Fairfield.   At that time they had 7 children, four sons and three daughters, who ranged in age from 20 to under 5.   Piecing together the information we have we can venture to guess the ages and names of them at this date;
   This is at the date 1840.   We are sure of the three youngest ages but are only in the area for the older ones.
   William 20, Eliza Ann 19, Nancy 18, Johnson 14, Sarah 8, Charles D. 6, Andrew Jackson 3

“Eliza Ann was married to Edward Smalley 13 Feb. 1845 in Highland Co.   William was married to Frances Lowman 11 Sept. 1851 in Highland Co.   Nancy is listed as the wife of John Murphey of Indiana in 1850.

“Susannah died 20 Oct. 1844, and William died sometime before 1850.   This left several minor children, who probably lived with their Tyler grandparents until the death of Daniel and Sarah (Tyler).   In 1850 (30 April) Charles D. Lewellen was placed under the guardianship of joseph Huff.   He is stated to be the heir of Daniel Tyler.   On 12 Dec. 1854, Andrew Jackson Lewellen was placed under the guardianship of William P. Hughey, aged 17 years, son of Wm. Lewellen, dec’d.

“In 1850 the children are listed as living:   WILLIAM LEWALLEN, CHARLES D. LEWALLEN, JACKSON LEWALLEN ‘all of ohio’; JOHNSON LEWALLEN, SARAH LEWALLEN ‘of Illinois’; NANCY LEWALLEN ‘now wife of John Murphy’ of Indiana, ELIZA ANN LEWALLEN ‘now wife of Samuel Murphy (?) of Indiana.

“so this all we know so far.   After the death of their parents, the children scattered to different states and lived out their lives far from each other.   In fact, Sarah even migrated to California, with her husband hardin R. Wright in 1870’s after spending some years in Missouri.”

ADDITIONAL NOTE which substantiates part of the above:   There is a Common Pleas County Record, Highland County Ohio naming a William Lewallen. "dec'd" William Lewallen Charles D Lewallen, Jackson Lewallen of Ohio, Sarah Lewallen, Johnson Lewellan of Illinois, John Murphy and Nancy Murphy his wife, late Nancy Murphy of Ill, Samuel Murphy and Eliza Ann Murphy his wife, late Eliza Ann Lewallan of Ind. and children and heirs at law of William and Susan Lewallen dec'd, who was a daughter of of Daniel Tyler" Now this Daniel Tyler of Bedford County Va. and ARW Vet who received land in Highland County Ohio as payment of war bonus. Daniel Tyler died March 10, 1843, Sarah Cash Tyler Died Dec 29, 1849. They had out lived several of their children. (per posting on GenForum)

1774 - Elizabeth Lewellin, (also Llewellyn) an immigrant, was indentured this year.   She was born ca 1749, was literate and a convict.   She was a Welsh woman, smart, attractive and capable of any business.   She could read and write and may have forged a pass.   She had a sum of money which she brought to this country. (from immigration information).   More:  

1774 - appearing in newspaper at Williamsburg, June 2.
TEN POUNDS Reward. RUN away from the subscriber, in Botetourt, on the night of the first instant (May) two convict servants, viz. JOHN JONES, a shoemaker, born in Liverpool, but I believe can speak Welsh, of a yellow Complexion, brown hair, a large nose, and pitted with the small pox, about 36 years of age, 5 feet 8 inches high, round shouldered, thick made, stoops much in his walk, and has a scar on his right leg, occasioned by a wound when he followed the sea; had on, and took with him, a light coloured sailor's jacket, fearnought breeches, two shirts of country made linen, a pair of trousers, and osnabrigs to make another pair. I also miss a new pair of buckskin breeches, with John Stewart wrote on the inside of the waistband, which I suspect he has taken. ELIZABETH LEWELLIN, a Welsh woman, about 25 years of age, 5 feet 6 inches high, black hair, full faced, fresh and lusty, wants one of her fore teeth, and has a very remarkable scar on her throat; had on, and took with her, a new calico gown that buttons before, black calimanco petticoat and shoes, an old pair of green coloured stays, new striped country made linsey bedgown and petticoat, and sundry other clothes. She is smart and active, and capable of any business, can read and write, and probably may forge a pass. She has, I am informed, a sum of money which she brought into the country; and I imagine they will make for a seaport, as the man formerly followed the sea. Whoever takes up and secures the said servants, so that I get them again, shall have the above reward, besides what the law allows; and I forewarn all masters of vessels, and others, from carrying them off at their peril.

1791 - Joseph Harrison married Mary Ann Gregory, Quaker ceremonty.   Some of the Quaker harrisons came from Talbot County, MD.   Whether Joseph did, hasn't been researched.

1795 - John BRADFIELD 's first mention in Quaker records is when John and his children (Joseph, Benjamin and Thomas) were received by request at the South River MM in Campbell Co., VA on 21 February 1795 (Hinshaw, Vol. VI: 299). Hannah wife of John BRADFIELD received on certificate from the Fairfax MM, Loudoun Co., VA dated November 25, 1795. It states that she was living in Campbell Co., VA for considerable time and condemned the conduct for which she stood disowned. Hannah was a daughter of George & Sarah (COX) BURSON of Loudoun Co., VA. Moreover, she is also more than likely not the mother of John's three children who came under the care of the Friends at Campbell Co., VA. There is a document purporting to be a transcript of the family bible for this family, copies of which are in circulation among descendants researching John BRADFIELD. The mother of Joseph, Benjamin and Thomas BRADFIELD is identified in the bible transcription as Mary (no surname). Moreover, a civil marriage took place between John BRADFIELD & Hannah READER on November 20, 1798 at Campbell Co., VA. John BRADFIELD was disowned for this act by the meeting for marriage contrary to discipline February 9, 1799

1712 - "Daniel Llewellin lived about an hours ride from Westover.   In William Byrd's diary, he writes on June 22, 1712, "I heard this day that Capt. Llewellin died on Thursday last which surprized me because I knew not that he had been sick."   Two days later, Colonel Epes (a) wrote inviting Byrd to Llewellin's funeral on the 26th.   "It was very cool, that my wife and I resolved to go to the funeral of Captain Llewellyn.   About 11 o'clock we sent in the   coach and got there soon after 12.   There were abundance of people.   Mr. Anderson gave us a sermon.   We had wine and biscuits according to custom.   We stayed there till 6 o'clock and then returned and our horses performed very well."

1714 - Richard Flewellin eeceived 278 acres adjoining land of Drury Stith in Charles County.   Note:   See Prince George County.     See 1730   (See York and Warwick Counties.   Could this Richard have been from that line?)

“Ann (---) Price (b 1604) who came to Virginia in the Francis Bonaventure and was living with her (1) husband John Price at neck of land, Charles City, 1623 md (2) 1636 Robert Hallam and (3) probably by 1640 Daniell Llewellyn, who was in Virginia by 19 Sept. 1633 when he was a headright (See Cavaliers and Pioneers by Nell Marian Nugent (1934).   Abstracts of Va. Land Patents and Grants 1623-1666), page 78.
“Llewellyn received a patent, 27 Oct. 1642, for 856 acres on the ‘upper branches of Turkey Island Creek’ and adjacent to ‘Mr. Ashton’s land’ in which he claimed among 17 headrights.   Robert Hallom and Frances Hallom.   (See P. 128 of above).   As shown in an account of the Hallam family, he had taken over by 1644 the management of their affairs in Va.   He served as Burgess from Henrico 1642-1644 and from Charles City 1646, 1652, 1655-6, as Justice of Charles City 1650 and as Sheriff 1656.   (See the Colonial Va. Register by Wm Glover Stanard (1902)   See page 62, 66, 69, 72.   Also Va. Colonial Abstracts Ser. 1 by Beverly Fleet.   34 v. Series 2 by the Rev. L. O.

Magazine of History and biography Richmond 1893---) pages 53 and 54.   The Martha Jones mentioned in the will appears to have been a sister rather than a daughter of Llewellyn.
“Apparently Ann (----) Price-Hallom-Llewellyn was deceased by 15 May 1666 at which time Daniell (2) Llewellyn repatented his father’s land now became due him as son and heir. (See Cavalier & Pioneers, P. 561)   the name David given in the patent obviously is intended for Daniell, since the patent names ‘Daniell, son and heir’; several parcels of land near the 1642 grant to Llewellyn Sr and acquired separately were grouped and a patent for a total of 636 acres issued to Daniell Sr. 10 Mar. 1655, Cavaliers and Pioneers, p. 317.)
“Issue:   (There is no record that Daniell Sr. had been previously married; moreover, his bequest of his Va. Holdings to his wife during her life and then to his son is evidence of the mother-son relationship; a son by a former marriage would have received his separate inheritance.
“2.   Daniell (2), Justice of Henrico 1681, 1696 (See Va. Colonial Abstracts XIII 95, 102) in 1677 called himself the son-in-law of Capt. John Stith.   (See William & Mary Quarterly (1) V111   238).   In a dispute over land, 21 Mar. 1683, Joseph Royall gave bond of L. 500 to Capt. Daniell (2) Llewellyn pending the outcome of a survey of 523 acres, Charles City.   Presumably Daniell (2) was deceased by 1701 when 2 of the original witnesses, William Randolph and Frances Epes, acknowledged the bonds in Henrico Court.   (Va. Co. The Myra Kingsbury (1906-1934).   4 v. 1619-1622, II 1622-1624, III 1607-1666, IV 1623-1626   (Henrico D. 1697-1704).
“Margaret (2) named in her father’s will as Margaret Cruse, was witness 1654 to a deed for a portion of ‘Turkey Island’ given by her half sister, Sara (Hallam) Woodward, her husband was probably James Crewes of Charles City, merchant, who was closely associated with Daniell Llewellyn Sr. in numerous business transactions.   (See Virginial Colonial Abstracts X 44, X1 8, 22).”

There is an article regarding Daniell Llewellyn in “William and Mary College Quarterly –  Old Letters of the Seventeenth Century” Vol. 8, pages 237 through 245.   Because of the length, I have not included the same herein.   One thing it does mention which may be of some significance in doing a genealogy on this family is “This second Daniel left no sons, but a sister appears to have married Col. Littleberry Epes of Charles City, since Llewellin Epes was his son.”


1814 - John McCargo (born 1736) died.   In his Will he directed "To Barbara Lewelling during her natural life a tract of land...containing 100 acres and after her decease be sold at a credit of 12 months to highest bidder...and money arising from sale be equally divided among my seven children.  
   She was probably an employee.   In April 1822 James McCargo ejected her from the property at Reynolds Fork.   It appears she MAY have retained 9 acres, but that information needs substantiation.   (Could she have been the wife of Christoper who died 1847?

1847 - Will of Christopher Lewellen was recorded Sept. 7, 1847 and mentions Mrs. Lewellen, Elvira Lewellen and John S. Lewellen.   NOTE:   There was a Christ Lewellen in the 21st Regiment of the Virginia Militia for the War of 1812.   Was this the same individual?


1791 - Will of John Woodson was witnessed by Freeman Lewellen


1752 - Ann T. Fluellen, "daughter of Ann Thomas of Philadelphia," was born August 28.   In 1784 she married Dr. Reuben Flanagan (b Mar 6, 1764 Newberry Dist., S.C.).   Their children were James Flanagan and Elvira Flanagan, both born Laurens Dist. S.C.   (From Llewellyn Traces Dec. 1990, and records found in Ann T. Fluellen Flanagan's family Bible.   /Ann died June 3, 1828 and her husband Dr. Reuben Flanagan died July 3, 1829.

See King & Queen County; this is where Christopher Llewellyn immigrated to in 1750.   The following article was taken from Llewellyn Traces by Martha Abbey, March and June 1997.   Prior to reading the article take note of the Virginia Gazette article regarding Christopher Llewellyn.   I'm not sure where I obtained this article nor from whom but my apologies to that individual   for not giving him/her credit for it because it is important in working on the information regarding Christopher.   Hopefully you'll let us know so rightful credit can be given you.

"This was an article in the newspaper 1752:
   "Ran away from the subscriber, living in King and Queen County on the 10th Day of July last, a Servant Man named Christopher Lewelin about 21 or 22 years of age, of a middle stature and somewhat pitted with small-pox; has a Fly look, pretends to be a fine Singer, has a large Scar on the out-side of his right Legg, a great many Letters and Flowers marked on his Arms in Blue, with the Letters CL on one of his Hands, very dull:   He is a Blacksmith by Trade, and was imported in the Ship Rachael, Capt. Armstrong, in the year 1750.   Whoever secures the said Run-away so that I may have him again shall have Two Pistole Reward if taken up in Virginia and Five Pistoles if taken up in any other Province, paid by
   William Taliaferro"

King and Queen is right next to Gloucester.   In going over what's provided by Mrs. Abbey, it doesn't appear there's a connection of Christopher with George, Homer or Henry so these were probably two different lines.

Because of the typing involved, I haven't included information by Mrs. Abbey entitled "The elusive Llewellyns of Gloucester County, Virginia, ca. 1750," nor History of gloucester County, Virginia" and instead am going directly to the chronology.

"Time line for Llewellyns of Gloucester County, Virginia.

"Below is a time line of dates and events attributed to a Virginia man named Homer Lewallen, son of a George Lewallen, and another man named Christopher Llewellyn.   the dates and information come from family records and tax and census records.

"Throughout this time line, for the most part, we're refrained from speculating about what these records indicate.   We will say, however, that the records below surely deal with more than one man named Christopher Llewellyn.   Consider, for instance that if the person baptized in 1758 was an infant at the time, he would have been only 12 years of age if he is the same person who was taxed in 1770."

NOTE:   Christopher who was baptized 1758 was undoubltedly the son of Christopher born ca

"1740   Homer Lewallen, son of aGeorge Lewallen, was born in 1740.   In an unknown place and on an unknown date, but before 1764, he married Mary Jefferson, who was born 12 July 1743 in Frederick County, Virginia.   (LDS Archive Record.)

1826 - Rice v. White
Source: Virginia Reports, Annotated, pgs. 1006 –  1008 April 1833
   This case was tried in the circuit court of Halifax County, in April of 1826. In essence, the case was for deceit in the sale of a female slave, the case was brought by White against Rice. The record has some limited genalogical value as discussed below.
The slave in question had been the property of Matthew Rice, deceased. Llewellyn researchers familiar with Anderson Lewellin (m. Lucy Rice, 1784, in Prince Edward Co., VA) will recognize that a close family connection existed between this Lewellin family and that of the Rice family.
Upon obtaining the female slave, she was sold to “one Lewellen”. “That Rice, the defendant, in the year 1811, as the agent of his mother, Ann Foster, sold the slave in question to the plaintiff, White for 220 dollars;”. Further, “…  of M. Rice, Mrs. Foster’s first husband and the defendant’s father …”. “Mrs. Foster died in 1817.” Apparently Mrs. Foster, upon obtaining the slave then sold her to Mary Lewellen.
There is no further genealogical value in the text of case, however, Llewellyn researchers may wish to examine Halifax Co., VA Circuit Court records from approximately 1826.

1827 - Meeting: meeting to oppose the election of Gen. Andrew Jackson for President, 21 Nov1827, Portsmouth, Norfolk Co., Virginia. 298 Herald--21 November 1827
Norfolk County Meeting
At a numerous meeting of the citizens of Norfolk County, opposed to the election of Gen. Andrew Jackson to the Presidency of the United States, convened at the Court House in Portsmouth, on Monday the 19th of Nov. 1827, the meeting being called to order, the Rev. Jesse Nicholson, a soldier of the revolution, was appointed Chairman, and John A. Chandler, Secretary.
The Chairman explained briefly the objects of the Assembly, and Holt Wilson, Esq. offered for adoption the following resolutions:
Resolved, 1st: That we entirely concur in the preamble and resolutions adopted by our fellow citizens at a meeting held on the 3rd inst. at Hickory Ground, in this county, and that we will use all fair and honorable means to promote the object of the said meeting;
Resolved, 2dly: That the Delegates appointed at the meeting to represent this county in the proposed anti-Jackson Convention to be held in Richmond on the 2d Tuesday in January next, be, and are hereby appointed Delegates in behalf of this meeting to the said Convention:
Resolved, 3dly: That ____ be and they are hereby appointed Delegates on behalf of this meeting to unite with the Delegates appointed at Hickory Ground to represent this county in the anti-Jackson Convention to be held in Richmond on the 2d Tuesday in January next:
Resolved, 4thly: That the gentlemen hereafter named, be added to the Corresponding Committee, appointed at Hickory Ground, whose duty it shall be to act in conjunction with the said Committee in securing the object of the said meeting.
The resolutions having been read, Gen. Robert B. Taylor, addressed the meeting in an animated, impressive and convincing argument, in which he exhibited the anti-republican nature of the caucus nomination by the Legislature, and the necessity of counteracting it by a ticket formed by Delegates elected for that purpose by the people in their primary assemblies. He then took a view of the biography of General Jackson, and while he extended to him the full need of praise and honor, for his glorious defense of his country, he at the same time exposed in bold relief his disqualifications from high civil office, as exhibited by his acts in almost every public station he has filled.
After General Taylor had concluded, the resolutions were again read and adopted unanimously, and the following gentlemen appointed Delegates under the third resolution: Col. William Wright, Thomas Talbot, Esq., and William B. Manning, Esq., and the following gentlemen appointed a committee under the fourth resolution:
John Thompson, Holt Wilson, Tapley Webb, George M. Bain, George Webb, Thos. Edwards, David Reynolds, John Collins Sr., H. Pendleton, Wm. Benthall, Robert Peed, James Reed, Beverly Bayton, John Talbot, Jesse Newcomb, ABEL LLEWELLENG, George Wilson, John Gay, James Carr, Matthew Manning, Sr., William White, David Ruth, John P. Leigh, Jesse Nicholson
Resolved, 5thly: That the proceedings of this meeting be signed by the Chairman and Secretary, and published in the newspapers of the Borough of Norfolk.

     On April 4, 1854, William Hansard, age 90, resident of Morgan Co., TN, testifies he was not in the service but knows of Joseph's service as he was a "close neighbor to said Joseph Hatfield in Russell Co., VA." Hansard declared Joseph served as a spy for 2 tours of 3 mos each in the company of Capt. Thompson; 1 tour of 3 mos. under Capt. Scott, 3 tours of 3 mos each under Capt. Wm. Campbell, 2 tours of 3 mos each and several tours of 4-6 weeks under Capt. Lyles, and 1 tour of 3 mos under Capt. Sevier. In all of these he performed as an "Indian spy" between the years of 1778 and 1782, and further declared the "Joseph Hatfield was such an excellent Indian Spy, he was always chosen by the Officers in all their expeditions against the Indians."    
     Mrs. Margaret Hansard, age 91, declared Joseph served as Indian spy on the frontier of Virginia between 1778 and 1782.  
     Andrew Smith, Rachel's brother, age 74, declared Oct. 16, 1843, he was at the wedding of Joseph Hatfield and Rachel Smith in the fall of 1779 and knows that Joseph was in the Rev. War.  
     Richard Crabtree, age 78, also a Rev. War pensioner, declared on Nov. 4, 1843, that Joseph served under Capts. Thomas, Scott, and Campbell for a period of over 3 years, before and after marriage. He also states that Joseph was "one of the best spy and Woodsmen in the whole western country."  
     On Oct. 10, 1843, Jane Smith, wife of Rachel's brother Eli, resident of Campbell Co., TN, age 78, declared she was present "when Joseph Hatfield and Rachel Smith were joined in wedlock." Then on Oct 21, 1843 Rachel also signed a declaration attesting to the accuracy of the above account. Also in Scott Co., TN, May 1852, Ezekiel Newport and Isaac Reed both sign similar statements attesting to their acquaintance with Joseph Hatfield and his Rev. War service.

(See Campbell County, Tennessee)
Note:   Joseph Hatfield was probably NOT related to Jonas Hatfield who married Rachel Lewelling (daughter of Shadrach and Rachel Lewelling of Loudoun)


1696 - Morris Veale died


York Co., Virginia
The earliest mention of a Llewellyn in York County was of Robert Llewelling , September 1655 1 , Robert was a merchant who was ordered to pay five pounds sterling to Mr. Anthony Wyatt, both of Jordan’s parish. On 31 March 1659, he was apparently living around Martin’s hundred 2 as he owed 1700 pounds of tobacco. Robert died about 24 February 1691/92 3 . Also noteworthy is the mention of a merchant named Robert Llewellin who whose estate was ordered by the Charles City County court to pay for the burial of his agent4 . These were perhaps one in the same person. Also of York County was Mr. John Lewellin, who inventoried the estate of Gabriel Jones, 29 March 16715 .

Alexander Lewelling died in Warwick County sometime after 7 March 1698/96 . His wife Francis Lench7 was left to address the claims against his estate. The marriage between Alexander and Francis was implied in court records. In the 1704 Quit Rent Roll of Virginia, she was identified as “Widdow Lewelling8 ”. It is possible that Alexander had a brother or father named Richard who was accused of receiving stolen goods9 (a horse). There are no records that suggest Alexander is a descendant of Robert Lewelling.

John, a son of Alexander and Frances, was identified in a 1705 deed10 . John also was recorded in a failure to appear in court11 case.. John was active in county court, serving on a grand jury, surveyor of the Main [sic] road, and appointed as a guardian of an orphan. In the Warwick County Minutes 1748 –  1762 the following individuals were named in the minutes; Alexander, Steeley & John.

The relationships among fathers and sons is quite ambiguous. Unfortunately, the records only reveal a few facts. It is clear that Steeley was deceased12 by about 1755. Also we find that Alexander Lewelling has a son named Alexander Lewelling –  “on the motion of Alexander Leweliing he is appointed guardian to his son”13 . This at least clarifies that there were three Alexander Lewellings but it is possible that the second Alexander was a son of John. Steeley therefore could have been a son of Alexander that died at an old age or a son of John who died at an early age.

The son of Alexander in the Warwick County Minutes was likely the same of Charles Parish, York County. Parish records14 show his wife to be a woman named Elizabeth who bore the following children; Fanny (born 3 June 1779), James (born 15 August 1772), John (twin to James), Mary (born 26 March 1770), Nancy (born 30 May 1769), and Simon (born 10 December 1776). His will is recorded in Edgecombe County, NC, 20 June 179115 .

Also mentioned in Warwick County Minutes was Mary Lewelling who was plaintiff in a trespassing case16 . The entry was around 1753 and therefore could not have been the daughter of Alexander and Elizabeth whose daughter Mary was born in 1770.

Parish records suggest other complications to understanding this family group. The original parish was St. Peter’s Parish that covered New Kent. In 1704 St. Paul’s Parish was split off to cover the western portions of the area. In 1726, Martin’s Parish was split off from St. Paul’s. Therefore, any Lewellins found in these records could be relatives.

From St. Peter’s Parish Vestry, there is a record of the birth of Lydia Lewellin, daughter of James and Agnes Lewellin, born 8 November 1726 and was baptized 11 December 172617 . It is unclear how James is related to the Alexander who died in 1698, but possibly he was a son.

Also of note was a John and Elizabeth Llewellin that appeared in the records of New Kent County, specifically in the registry of St. Peter’s Parish. The vestry record specifically records the birth of David, son of John and Elizabeth Lewellin, 15 August 175518 . Also recorded is the birth of another son Jonathan, born 17 May 1753 and baptized in 24 June 175319 .

Charles Parish records mention Lucy Fluellin was born 23 September 171920 but the parents are not recorded.



Thomas, an indentured servant, was born in 1645, Pemney, Carmathian, Wales. By 1664, he was indentured to Daniel Vernon of Virginia--and in 1674 married Daniel's daughter Ruth.   Thomas and Ruth lived in the southeastern portion of the Virginia colony--Amelia county and the Isle of Wight.   The family of Daniel were strong Quakers and Thomas converted to that faith.

Thomas and Ruth's children are:
Thomas Henry, born 1675
Daniel, born 1677
Mary, born 1679
Richard, born 1681.   Richard's will, dated may 18, 1723 lists his wife Elizabeth, and son Able (Able was a common Quaker name).   Able's will, dated October 28, 1758, lists wife sarah and sons Daniel, Able and John.   Both of the wills are listed in Norfolk, VA.
Margaret, born 1684
Hannah, born 1686
Jesse, born 1689


Barbara Hensley - Jul 21, 2009

I hope this is in the right place. The John Crain who married Mary Lewelling in Va might have been a son of an Ambrose Crain but looking at the places they lived in including Rowan, Surry , Wilkes Counties, N.C. and Knox co Tn. I think this is the John Crain , son of an Ambrose married to an Elizabeth ,who moved on to Wilkes Co., GA. This John Crain married Suzanna Scott.  
Thanks, Barbara
