Janet's Genealogy

Youell

The Youell family

Thomas Youell • b 1615-1618 in Wilbrasome, Northamptonshire, England d Feb 1655 in Westmoreland , Virginia married Abt 1636 in Isle Of Kent Maryland to Ann Sturman b Abt 1618 in Haddenham, Buckinghamshire, England. d 3 Mar 1670-1672 in Westmoreland , Virginia

THOMAS YOWELL Arrived at Kent Island with WILLIAM CLAIBORN E in July, 1634. WILLIAM CLAIBORNE, of an ancient and honorable family in Westmoreland, England, was first in Virginia in 1621.

Was a Major in the Militia in Westmoreland Co. VA.

He was the discoverer of Kent Island and founded a settlement there about 1631, the first settlement within the present bounds of Maryland.

One authority states THOMAS YOWELL was brought into Virginia by WILLIAM CLAIBORNE, which would place his arrival in 1631, at the age of thirteen years. At any rate, he arrived first in Virginia, later going to Kent Island in company with CLAIBORNE. Thus we find THOMAS YOWELL starting his career at an early age with the later Secretary of 'State of Virginia and one of that State's most noted characters.

On 7 September 1640 WILLIAM MEDCALF and THOMAS YEWELL, of the Isle of Kent, ask the Maryland authorities for a confirmation to them of Mattux Neck, "which they now hold by grant from Capt.WILLIAM CLAYBURN and THOMAS YEWELL asks 500 additional acres for services with Capt. CLAYBURN "

On 25 1640, the Neck was laid out for them. THOMAS YOWELL evidently took up his residence in St. Marys at that time, as we find him, 3 April 1643, appearing before the St. Marys Court as attorney in fact for JOHN SMITH of Kent Island. Within the next two months THOMAS YOUELLE removed to Virginia, having extablished his residence in Northumberland County following the loss of CLAIBORNE's cause in Maryland.

16 Feb 1650, A deposition given by THOMAS YOUELL was read in a court in St. Marys in a case in which JOHN STURMAN was plaintiff. The deposition was attested before an officer in Northumberland Co. Virginia.

20th July 1650 he is conveying part of his original land pattent to EDMUND BRENT merchant - number of acres is not mentioned

On 10 Jan 1651, WILLIAM HARDWICK, of Nominy, Virginia, gave a power of attorney to JOHN STURMAN of St. Marys, which was witnessed by THOMAS YOUELL in Nominy

12 Jan 1651 JOHN STURMAN is assigning 300 acres to THOMAS between land of W. PIKE and RICHARD HAWKINS as soon as his Pattent comes from Virginia. This assignment was recorded 1655 This portion of Northumberland was set off as Westmoreland Co. in July 1653.

17 Feb 1651 - THOMAS & ANNE YOUELL assign land to RICE MADDOCK in Westmoreland - Northumberland Wit: ISAAC KNIGHT & ROBERT WY - - ?

16 September 1651 - Governor WM BERKELEY assignes 300 acres to THOMAS for transporting 6 persons (from England)(Head Right rewarded) So. side of Potomack River abutting constantly upon Memory Bay - Northerly upon a creek which divideth this land from the land of JOHN ARMSBY - Easterly & Southerly into the main woods.

14 of September 1653 GEORGE DAY is assigning land to THOMAS

7 July 1654 - THOMAS YOULL buys from sister of ROBERT VAUX which transaction is invalid without his signature. RICHARD HAWKINS makes the transaction sois probably the husband of this sister. 20th July 1655 - The above sale was completed when ROBERT VAUX authorized his attorney to close the sale in his name.

1 Oct 1655 THOMAS is transacting land business to JOHN REDMAN.

JOHN STURMAN was a son of THOMAS STURMAN and brother of ANNE (STURMAN) YOWELL, wife of THOMAS YOWELL.

Thus we find in THOMAS YOWELL a sturdy pioneer who, in his twenty-three years on American soil, lifted himself from a thirteen-year old boy in the services of a great man to a position of comparative affluence and power, and left his children commanding the confidence and respect of the best people of two colonies. From "The YOUELL Family In America" by Claude Lindsey Yowell.

ANOTHER SOURCE" (1) According to Margaret Barclay in "The Yowells of the Deep South" on page 51, it states:

"V.A. Abstracts," Vol. 23, page 33, says that............"THOMAS YOULL, age 40 or about, was on the ship of Abraham Johnson with my father, THOMAS STURMAN, and JOHNSTURMAN, 1 Oct 1655" - this being attributed (stated by) to RICHARTED STURMAN.

(2) Barclay, page 2: "The following chronological records from Northumberland County, VA., are interesting:........THOMAS YOWELL witnessed an inventory 22 Mar 1650.

THOMAS YOWELL and wife, ANNE, assigned 300 acres, patented from Gov. BERKELEY 16 Sep 1651 on the potomac (next to) to RICE MADDOCH

.THOMAS YOWELL was due money in 1652......THOMAS YOWELL was due money again in 1652. (Performed some kind od service to the community or state.)

THOMAS YOWELL received 200 acres of land in 1652 for transportation of 4 persons. (From England)

THOMAS YOWELL was assigned land from JOHN STURMAN (his brother-in-law) 17 Jan 1652.

THOMAS YOWELL ordered to pay money 25 Nov 1652 and 20 Jan 1653.

THOMAS YOWELL appointed appraiser 20 Jan 1653.

THOMAS YOWELL (writing illegible) 21 Nov 1653.

THOMAS YOWELL appraised land 22 Mar 1655.

THOMAS YOWELL assigned 500 acres of land on the south side of the Potomac 20 Jul 1655.

Estate of THOMAS YOULE, deceased, attached for 3,600 lbs. of tobacco 20 Nov 1655.

Will of ANN STURMAN (mother-in-law of THOMAS YOWELL) dated 22Jun 1654 mentions grandson, THOMAS YOULLE, her daughter, ANN YOULLE, and cattle on the Nominy."

(3) Miss Barclay continues on page 56: "'Land Grants of Colonial Virginia" Gov. BERKELEY granted 300 acres on Nominy Bay, on the south side of the Potomac River to Capt. THOMAS YOWELL 16 Sep 1651.' (A search at the Virginia Archives revealed that no records are extant on commissions granted in Colonial Virginia as early as 1650.)"

(4) Miss Barclay continues on page 51:

"Nugent, page 319. HENRY JAMES of St. Mary's Hundred, Maryland......willed his plantation there to THOMAS YOWELL, but it was a leasehold on St. Gabriel's Manor of 900 acres in St. Gabriel's Hundred.

Also leased to YOWELL was St. Jerone's Manor in St. Michael's Hundred, 4,250 acres belonging to Capt. THOMAS CORNWALYS.......This property, of course, had to be returned to the owners when YOWELL left Maryland."

(5) Miss Barclay continues on page 52:

"William & Mary's Quarterly,' page 41: 'Capt. THOMAS EWELL or YOWELL, b. in 1615, [?] m. ANNE, daughter of THOMAS STURMAN,cooper (is a barrell maker).

She married secondly JOHN HULL, and died in 1670-72 [1671].

From Clark S. Yowell's "Yowell's, A Genealogical Collection", page 33: "The first member of the YOWELL family to migrate to the New World was THOMAS YOWELL,who, according to his deposition given on Kent Island, Maryland, 20 May 1640, was born in the parish of Wilbarson, Northamptonshire, England.

No data is available on this parish, but we find recorded the marriage of STEVEN ULE, of Stowe,to MARGARET LEWES on 4 October 1590.

Also, in Castor Parish, 5 June 1592, is recorded the marriage of JEREMY YOWLE and JOANESERGEANT. "Further information derived from the aforementioned deposition is that THOMAS YOWELL was born in 1618 and arrived at Kent Island with WILLIAM CLAIBORNE in July, 1634.

WILLIAM CLAIBORNE, of an ancient and honorable family in Westmoreland, England, was first in Virginia in 1621. He was the discoverer of Kent Island and founded a settlement there about 1631, the first settlement within the present bounds of Maryland.

One authority states THOMAS YOWELL was brought into Virginia by WILLIAM CLAIBORNE,which would place his arrival in 1631, at the age of thirteen years. At any rate, he arrived first in Virginia, later going to Kent Island in company with CLAIBORNE.

Thus we find THOMAS YOWEL starting his career at an early age with the later (CLAIBORNE)as Secretary of State of Virginia and one of the State's most noted characters.

"A further perusal of the aforementioned deposition throws much light on condidtions on KentIsland at that time. It is herewith produced in part, as taken from the "Maryland Archives":

"20 May 1640....THOMAS Y0UALL de Insul Kent in Provincia de Maryland . . . . That att his (this deponents ) arrivall on the articulate Iland being in July 1634 there was great want of trucking stuffe and that the said CLAIBORNE did provide a pinnace and boates, with men and things necessary in expectation of Trucke as this deponent believeth to goe a trading with the Indians....signed: The mark of THOMAS (x) YOUALL.'"

"On 7 September 1640, WILLIAM MEDCALF and THOMAS YEWELL, of the Isle of Kent, ask the Maryland authorities for a confirmation to them of Mattux Neck, 'which they nowhold by grant from Capt. WILLIAM CLAYBURN, and THOMAS YEWELL asks 500 additional acres for services with Captain CLAYBURN. ' On 25 September 1640, the Neck was laid out for them.'

"On November 1, 1641, JAMES CALTHER leased to THOMAS STURMAN, of the Isle of kent, cooper, and THOMAS UELL of the same Isle and Province, Planter, a house and plantation in St. Maries Hundred.

THOMAS YOWELL evidently took up his residence in St. Marys at that time, as we find him, 3 April 1643, appearing before the St. Marys Court as attorney in fact for JOHN SMITH of Kent Island.

There also, two days later, he assumed all the debts of STEVEN THOMAS (probably thereby saving a friend from debtors' prison). On June 14 of the same yar Thomas

YEWELL made oath that Capt. WILLIAM CLAYBORNE had made certain promises to ROBERTCOOPER in his presence on Palmer's Island, which was probably the site of the aforementioned "services with Captain CLAYBORNE."

Further records in St. Marys reveals the suit of THOMAS UELL against Mrs. MARGARET BRENT under date of November, 1649.

"Within the next two months THOMAS YOUELLE removed to Virginia, having established his residence in Northumberland County following the loss of CLAIBORNE's cause in Maryland.

A deposition given by THOMAS YOUELLE on 16 February 1650, was read in a court in St. Marys in a case in which JOHN STURMAN was plaintiff. The deposition was attested before an officer in Northumberland County, Virginia.

On 10 January 1651, WILLIAM HARDWICK, of Nominy, Virginia, gave a power of attorney to JOHN STURMAN of St. Marys, which was witnessed by THO. YOUELL in Nominy.

This portion of Northumberland was set off as Westmoreland County in July, 1653. JOHN STURMAN was a son of THOMAS STURMAN and brother of ANNE (STURMAN) YOWELL, wife of THOMAS YOWELL. Alternate name spelling, YOWELL Family in America: "UELL".

Written by.............. THOMAS YOUELL Hague, VA., October 16, 1912 . . . . From where I am now sitting in my home a gentle descending plain reaches for three miles to Nomini River, which makes a grace ful curve on each side of a bridge to which the road that intersects the plain leads.

On this ground THOMAS YOUELL settled about 1630, and here Captain THOMAS YOUELL died in 1695.

Captain YOUELL married a sister of his neighbor, Dr . JOHN LEE, and daughter of RICHARD LEE, the immigrant, of Northumberland.

Captain YOUELL's children were principally daughters who intermarried with the families of English, WATTS, SPENCE and ATWELL.

Many of their descendants are still here, and the name "YOUELL" as a Christian title distinguished many of the descendants through several generations. No family of YOUELL (Yowell) remained here as late as 1750 as far as I have seen. A great tide of emigration early set in towards the mountains, and this family doubtless followed it, locating in Culpeper. G. W. Beale.

"Capt. Thomas Youell, born in 1615, married Anne, daughter of Thomas Sturman, a cooper. She married secondly, John Hull. He came into possession of several tracts of land. He bacame a Justice of Westmoreland County, and is buried under the present Mt. Holly Church with several other members of his family. One acre of land was deeded for the church by Youell Watkins. Youell Watts was his real name, and I find no reason assigned for his change of the spelling. Thomas Youell patented 780 acres July 2, 1669. He made his will December 7, 1694; proved May 29, 1695. Thomas Youell first patented 300 acres September 16, 1651, now part of Bushfield, and the land on which the residence of Mark S. Willing now stands. He sold this land to Rice Maddox and after several other transfers, it came to George Durant, who sold to Richard and Thomas Bushrod. The Bushrods repatented for 720 acres April 10, 1665."

Thomas Yowell patented 500 acres October 19, 1653. He came with his wife Ann Yowell, Senr., Ann Yowell, Junr., Thomas Yowell, William Yowell, and himself as headrights to Thomas Hobkins. This appears to have been his entire family. Anne Yowell, his wife, was a daughter of Thomas Sturman."

Winifred (Youell) English and Walter English, Jr. had four children by her first marriage, Walter, Youell, Edmund and Lucy English

From Westmoreland County, Virginia Order Book, 1690-1698, Part 2, pages 91-92: «tab»Page 137, 30 May 1694. WINIFRED ENGLISH relict and administratrix of WALTER ENGLISH junr. caused John Bolton, Clerk, and Frances his wife to be summoned to shew cause why a judgment obtained against Frances (when sole) by the said WALTER at a Court held 27 Dec. 1693, whereof she stands convicted by the verdict of a jury for nine concealed tithables, should not be revived and execution issue thereupon. For that John and Frances failed to appear and Mr. Robert Brent their attorney being sick, ordered that the former judgment be revived unless the defendants appeare at the next Court

From Westmoreland County, Virginia Order Book, 1690-1698, Part 3, page 82: «tab»JOHN ATWELL and WINIFRED his wife were sumoned to answer James Westcomb of a plea that they render unto him 460 pounds of tobacco. James by Robert Brent his attorney saith that WINIFRED when sole and in her widdowhood became indebted to James 410 pounds of tobacco by account beginning in November 1690, and also that JOHN ATWELL became since indebted to James Westcomb 50 pounds of tobacco by account. JOHN ATWELL saith as to the 50 pounds he cannot gainsay that the oweth the same but of the 410 pounds he never had anything of the plaintiff amounting to that value nor had the plaintiff in his decloration set forth on what account the 410 pounds of tobacco became due. For that it appeared to the Court that the plaintiff's account was justly due for Clerk's fees, it is considered that the plaintiff recover 460 pounds of tobacco.
