Notes

William Featherstone I, in his own words If he could speak to us today, William Featherstone I might describe his life as follows. I lived on Herring Creek in Westover Parish, Charles City County, on the north side of the James. Since few records for Charles City remain, I can say little of my life. A lawsuit reveals that my wife was Mary —, the widow of Henry May. Evidently May’s will left property to Ruth Wilkinson and her guardian William Randolph sued me in October 1689 claiming I had it — which I did not. After my attorney, Edward Chilton, convinced the justices that May’s will gave away more than he owned, they ordered 2 citizens to evaluate his property and distribute it proportionately to the heirs. Since I once unlawfully left the county owing Thomas Cocke <3434.htm> 572 pounds of tobacco, he sued me in August 1695 and the court ordered sub-sheriff Joshua Wynn to attach my property.

One of my daughters married John Cross, a Herring Creek neighbor. Not only did he name a son Featherstone Cross, his will put him in the hands of his uncle, William Featherstone, of course my son. When son William sold 150 acres on Herring Creek in Westover Parish to Elias Booth in 1726, the deed confirmed he inherited it from me by the will I made 23 December 1718. & If that will had not been destroyed, I could have introduced you to my other children."

Land transactions William Featherstone and John Edwards secured a patent to 545 acres in Westover Parish, Charles City County, on 6 June 1699. Drury Stith and Samuel Eale held a neighboring 680 acres on the north side of the James River 24 April 1703. Featherstone got 50 acres on the southeast side of Herring Creek in July 1717. It was next to William Cole . When John Roach Jr. got 85 acres on Herring Creek 19 December 1711, he submitted the name of William Featherstone — perhaps William Featherstone II — as a headright.

Note William Feathersone

William Featherstone III [1654.2.1] (-1769) married Susanna Grigg , daughter of William Grigg and his wife, Elizabeth, about 1737.

Featherstone held land on Leaths Creek near his Grigg brothers-in-law in 1757. We presume this was land his wife inherited from her father. William was "the younger" when he secured a patent to 150 acres on the head of Woody Creek of Deep Creek in Amelia County 20 July 1738. He and Susannah sold the land to Timothy Murrill 21 March 1739/40. William was still "junior" 12 March 1739/40 when he got 321 acres on White Oak Swamp of Prince George (later Dinwiddie) County. William's cousin Richard Cross owned land nearby on White Oak Swamp. On 25 July 1746, "junior" held 100 acres on Namozine Creek next to his father.

William Featherstone moved from Dinwiddie County to Amelia County buying 200 acres on Middle Cellar Creek of Deep Creek in Amelia County from Francis Raney for £100 15 December 1755.

William survived his wife and left a will in Amelia County that divided his 200 acres on Deep Creek among four youngest sons (will dated 22 Aug. 1767, recorded 27 April 1769). William and Lewis appeared as tithables as early as 1763 and were undoubtedly the older sons. His Leaths Creek land was apparently partitioned into 42-acre tracts that all the children shared. An Amelia County deed identified heirs of William Vaughan as John and Lucy Vaughan, Lew and Elizabeth Clark, and the children of George and Frances Still.

"William Featherston of Prince George and Amelia Counties, VA" by Mrs. Augusta B. Fothergill, Richmond, VA as compiled for some of the Richmond Featherstone's in the 1930s (Research Paper):

"WILLIAM FEATHERSTON (III) of Amelia made his will 22 AUG. 1767, which was probated 27 APRIL 1769. He left bequests to his children as follows: Charles Howell Featherston to have 50 acres of land, dwelling house and orchard. Jesse to have 50 acres of land; RICHARD 50 acres; Burwell 50 acres; Lucy Vaughan Featherston 20 pounds current money; Frances Still, same; Elizabeth 20 pounds current money, a feather bed and furniture; Susanna to have same as Elizabeth; 6 sons: WILLIAM GRIGG, LEWIS, JESSE, RICHARD, BURWELL and CHARLES HOWELL FEATHERSTON.

Featherstone Line of Mrs. Jordan Fischler; 303 Bradley Avenue, Rockville,Maryland:

"William Featherston, son of William Featherston, the Elder.~~ His willdated 8/2/1767 and probated in Amelia Co., Va. 4/27/1769 names sons; William Grigg Featherston, Burwell Featherston, Lewis Featherston,Richard Featherston, Jesse Featherston, Charles Howell Featherston, and daughters Lucy Vaughan, Frances Stell, Elizabeth Featherston (married Lewis Clark), and Suannah Featherston. One writer asserts that his wife was Susannah Grigg (born 6/11/1720), daughter of William Grigg and SusanLockett Grigg.

~~DFL Note: There is general confusion across the board as to whichWilliam was known as "the Elder" some researchers refer to William II as"the Elder" some as William I as "the Elder." (In this case, Mrs.Fischler appears to be providing information about William III, (the sonof William II who was the son of William I "The Elder") based on thechildren listed for this William and the reference to Susannah Grigg, aswell as the date of death for William (4/27/1769).~~

Notes:

Richard Featherstone inherited 50 acres. His bride was Susannah Davenport, daughter of George Davenport of Amelia County who mentioned daughter Susannah Davenport in his will of 2 September 1773. Richard and Susannah received one-eighth of his estate 24 January 1782. Amelia County listed Richard Featherstone head of a family of seven with five blacks in 1782 and eight whites in 1785. They were living in Granville County, North Carolina, 28 March 1774 when they sold 42 acres on Cellar Creek in Amelia County to his brother-in-law George Still. Susanna witnessed the consent when Sarah Davenport married Lewis Vaughan in 1788.

"RICHARD of this line with his wife SUSANNA removed to Granville Co., N.C. by 26 MARCH 1774, when they sold 42 acres of land in Amelia adjoining Burwell and Charles Howell Featherston. (Deeds 13, p. 73)."
