DANIEL Genealogy Notes

Generation No. 1

NOTE: Some of this report was taken from the Ancestry.com file on-line. No proof was offered for the Ancestry data, but it was copied here for research purposes only. None of this material should be judged as truth until you prove it for yourself. A recent E-mail from Thomas R. Daniel, who has researched the Cheshire, England DANIELL family for years, indicates that some of this material is NOT correct. However, since I am presenting this line here for corrections/updates, I wanted to share some of the material he sent to me, along with the orignial LDS/Ancestry files. I am seeking the connection between the DANIEL and SHELTON families of Virginia. See more notes below, listed with Generation No. 4. If you have proof to offer for any of this material, or corrections, please do write to me.

Another researcher of this DANIEL line, Payne Daniel sent E-mail dated Jan. 29, 2000 with very helpful updated information and this URL. Clicking on the underline URL will take you to this very well researched, documented website, certainly worth several hours of reading. Payne Daniel refutes some of the data I have presented below (Ancestry.com GEDCOM), and his website offers researchers an enormous amount of DANIEL data. Thank you Mr. Daniel for sending this information.

1. PIERS1 DANIELS was born 1464. He married JULIA NEWTON.
CAUTION: the source here was the LDS Ancestral File (1996). None of the first few generations have been verified with sources other than the LDS entries. Use for research purposes only.

3. THOMAS3 DANIELS (THOMAS DANIEL 2 DE ANYERS, PIERS 1 DANIELS) was born 1524, and died August 09, 1574 in Tabley, England. He married ALICE DUTTON, daughter of FAULK DUTTON.

4. i. PETER4 DANIELS, b. 1554.

Generation No. 4


5. i. PETER5 DANIELL, b. 1584, Tabley, England; d. April 18, 1652, England.

The following notes are from Thomas R. Daniel, Oct. 1999. We can be thankful that people like Mr. Daniel take the time to offer this valuable data. His source was George Ormerods "History of the County Palatine and City of Chester", 2nd Edition, published 1882 (Part of page 475 Volume I of III). This work used original manuscripts of Sir Peter Leicester of Nether Tabley. The Leicester family were neighbors of the Daniells of Over Tabley for a few hundred years. Daniel of Over Tabley's line has been traced back to 1291, but became extinct in 1726 on the death of Sir Samuel Daniell without male issue. The book notes came from the year 1666:
X. Peter Daniell of Over Tabley, esquire, son and heir of Thomas and Alice, married Anne, daughter of Henry Manwaring of Carincham in Cheshire, esquire, 1574 and had issue Peter, son and heir, six years old when his father died; Richard Daniell, second son, died without issue; Frances, married Edward Littleton, younger son of Littleton of Pillaton in Staffordshire, near Pancridge; Anne, second daughter, died without issue; Mary, third daughter, married John Woodnot of Shenton in Cheshire; after to John King of Salmondley in Lincolnshire; Jane, fourth daughter died without issue. This Peter died 3 die Augusti, 1590, ...aged 29 years. Anne his widow afterwards married Thomas Ashold parson of Swetenham in Cheshire; and she died 29 Julii, 1633, and had the wardship of her son...
XI. Peter Daniell of Over Tabley, esq., son and heir of Peter and Anne, married Christian, daughter of Richard Grosvenour of Eaton-boat, in cheshsire, esquire, and had issue Peter, eldest son; Henry; second son, married Anne duaghter of sir John Dorell of Wesstwoody, in Berkshire, but had no issue; John Daniell, third son, was an apprentice in London, and married, but died also without issue; William, fourth son, married Dorothy Forth of Wigan in Lancashire; Thomas, fifth son, slain at the battle of Brainford, near London, 1642. Margaret, eldest daughter, married Richard Green of Congleton in Cheshire, gentleman; Christian, second daughter, married George Davenport of Calveley, esq.; Mary, third daughter, married one Colonel Finch, 1651, an officer for the parliament-party against the king, and are both now living in Ireland (1666). Elizabeth, fourth daughter, died unmarried; Anne, the youngest daughter, married Robert Sanford of Sanford, in Shropshire, esquire, 1648. This Peter Daniell was on of the knights of this county for the parliament 1625, and died 18th day of April 1652, aged 68 years, and was buried at Great Budworth. Christian his wife survived, and died 1663. (Page 842 Vol. II of III: Christian, born Nov. 4, 1587, wife of Peter Daniel of Tabley, esq., married at Eccleston, Sept. 5, 1601).
So, you can see that it is unlikely that the below William, listed in generation No. 6, is the William, son of Peter and Christian Grosvenor, as listed in the LDS Ancestry file. Mr. Thomas R. Daniel, of England, wrote that the William who married Dorothy Forth of Wigan, and was the son of Peter, is most likely the William Daniell listed in 1664 the 'College of Arms' granted arms to 'William Daniel of Wigan' on the basis of his descent from the Daniel family of Tabley. There were several men named William Daniel with wills listed in the Cheshire Record Office: Wm Daniel of Knutsford (2 miles max from Tabley) - 1684; Wm Daniel of Great Budworth (4 miles max. from Tabley) - 1685; Wm Daniel of Knutsford - 1686; Wm Daniel of Wigan (approx. 20 miles from Tabley in Lancashire) - 1695. The IGI files from the LDS Family History Center also show these births: Wm Daniell to Peter Daniell and Christian Grosvenor about 1616 Tabley; Wm Daniell to William Daniell and Dorothy Forth about 1645 Tabley (3 separate film sources); and Dorothy Daniell to William Daniell and Dorothy Forth about 1647.

Generation No. 5

5. PETER5 DANIELL (PETER 4 DANIELS, THOMAS 3, THOMAS DANIEL 2 DE ANYERS, PIERS 1 DANIELS) was born 1584 in Tabley, England, and died April 18, 1652 in England. He married CHRISTINA GROSVENOR.

6. i. WILLIAM6 DANIELL, b. April 08, 1625, Essex, England; d. August 26, 1678, Middlesex Co., VA.

Generation No. 6

6. WILLIAM DANIEL was born April 08, 1625 in Essex, England (Source: Birth date from LDS Ancestral File-1996), and died August 26, 1678 in Middlesex Co., VA (Source: LDS Ancestral File-1996 has death date and location as Milton, Norfolk, MA, not VA.). He married (1) KATHARINE GREENAWAY 1644 (incorrect according to some researchers - see below notes). He married (2) JOCEBED ?ROBINSON/SMITH? Abt. 1663.

Notes for WILLIAM DANIEL: While this man may be our DANIEL ancestor, caution should be used on any data not checked out to your own satisfaction. Since it appears much of the early connection entered by an unknown source to LDS is incorrect, we must assume that more of this data could be in error. Much of the data published here comes from others research. Many times, researchers wish to connect to royal lines, but when no obvious connection can be seen in the early records, you must assume that it is unlikely your ancestor descends from royality. Payne Daniel's website (old link no longer valid as of 8/26/01) had listed that this William Daniel married (1) JOCHABED ?SMITH?; (2) Unknown c1664. He wrote that "Captain William Daniel, who died in Middlesex Co., VA, was not the son of Peter Daniell and Christian Grosvenor. Nor was he ever married to Katherine Greenaway, for she married William Daniels of Mass. The first five generations in this tree appear to belong to another line of DANIELS, so use caution when connecting to this line
On the Broderbund VA Vital Records CD entered in Middlesex County 1704 Quit Rent VA Tax Records, pages 541-544, the following men are found. The name Daniel is spelled DANIELL.
DANIELL, Wm. 150ac.; DANIELL, Robert 225ac.; DANIELL, Richard 210ac.; DANEILL, James 150ac.; ROBINSON, John 1350ac.; CHILTON, Peter 100ac.; MOSELEY, Marvill 225 acres. In Essex Co., VA 1704 Quit Rent Roll the following: NIXON, Henry 500ac.; MOSSELEY, Edward 550ac.; MOSSELEY, Benjamin 1100ac.; MOSSELEY, Robert 100ac.
In the LDS Ancestral File (1996), William Daniel's birth date is the same (4/8/1625), but the location of birth given is Over Tabley, Cheshire, England. Place of death is given as Milton, Norfolk, MA 8/26/1678. His father is listed as Peter Deniell and his mother as Christina Grosvenor. He is shown with at least 4 other wives, one of which is Catherine/Katharine Greeneway/Greenaway who was born 1622 in England and died 11/14/1680 in Milton, Norfolk, MA. Children listed were: Susanna Daniell who married John Kingsley; John Daniell who married Dorothy Badcock; Mary Daniel who married Jonathan Wood; Hanna Daniel who married Benjamen Badcock and 2 others; and Samuel Daniell who died young. There is no explination for the children's birth dates being after his death, but they are left here for research purposes only. Updated information (Jan. 29, 2000) from Payne Daniel, who wrote "Colonel William Daniell of Wigan was the son of Peter Daniell and Christian Grosvenor and he was born in 1626 and married Dorothy Forth.

    Additional data on this line can be found in the archived DANIEL list of ROOTS-L. You can judge for yourself, any validity of a man imported as a servant, having any relationship to a royal English line!!! The following is from "Sheryl" - Date: Sun, 16 Nov 97, From: midwest To: "DANIEL" - Subject: [DANIEL-L] Capt. Wm. Daniel/Middlesex, VA-Part 2b
  • 25 Jan 1659 - Will DANIEL was in Lancaster Co., VA.
    The following items are from Middlesex Co. Order Book 1673-1680:
  • 06 Jul 1674 - He was imported as a servant, Caroline Peters,(P 11).
  • 06 Jul 1674 - He served on a jury,(P 13).
  • 03 May 1673 - He was given an order for 1 barrel of corn,(P 33).
  • 06 Dec 1673 He was in a list of tithables (P 46). 06 Dec 1673 - His servant Daniel Clark, then 10 years of age had entered the country without indenture on the ship Henry & Ann,(P 50). (It is to be noted that John DANIEL in York Co. devised a servant Thomas Clark to his son John in 1689.
  • 10 Apr 1676 - He was appointed Constable, (P 54).
  • 31 May 1677 - He with 3 others repaired a house, (P 62).
  • 04 May 1677 - He gave a Bill of Exchange, (P 124).
  • Jul Term 1677 - He served on a Jury, (P 193).

  • 1679 - He supplied Bridle, saddle, furniture, pistols for soldiers, (P 202).
  • Apr Term 1679 He served on a Jury (Pp 223-224).
    He first appears in the records of Christ Church Parish, Middlesex Co., VA in the Parish Register as follows: Richard, son of William and Jochabed Daniel, born 30 Sep 1678. Mary, daughter of William and Jochabed Daniel, died 12 Sep 1678. Agatha, daughter of William and Jochabed Daniel, bap 06 Mar 1683-4.
  • The Vestry Book of the Church shows he was elected a member of the Church Vestry and attended his first meeting 02 Jun 1684. His attendance is shown at almost every meeting of the Vestry from the date of his election.
  • He was made Church Warden of the Great Church in the Middle Parish 05 Jan 1685 and served until succeeded by Oswald CARY in 1687.
  • Hayden claims William Daniel ceased serving as a member of the Vestry in 1692, but this is not true. The last entry shows him in attendance at the meeting of 10 Nov 1696.
  • He first appears as Captain William Daniel at the meeting of 12 Nov 1689, and all subsequent entries, except three, refer to him as Captain William Daniel
    . As Church Warden, William Daniel was ordered to take possession of 100 acres of land devised by one William Gordon. This was ordered at the Vestry meeting of 05 Jan 1685. The land was to be applied toward the use of schools. The following year, 06 Dec 1686, he was paid 1,400 pounds of tobacco for railing in the communion table. This was the only time when he was referred to as William Daniel, Senior. He was serving as a Justice in Middlesex Co., 02 Jun 1684, and aided in taking the Military Census of that Co., 23 Dec 1686.
    Whether the designation "Captain" Daniel, was honorary or official is not known, but it is of record that when certain supplies and equipment were ordered for the militia to that co. in 1678, they were ordered turned over to him, 01 Jul 1689, so there is reasonable grounds for believing the title was not an honorary one.
  • He was a witness to the will of Thomas Williams in Middlesex Co. The will was made 30 Jul 1683; proved 06 Oct 1684 (Ref 73). His name is there spelled DANIELL.
  • He was a witness to the will of Christ. Robinson, made 27 Jan 1692; proved 06 Mar 1693. Robinson had married the widow of Major Robert Beverley. In the will Robinson designates him as his ³loving friend Captain William Daniel² and bequeathes him a ring and designates him as one of the executors. He (Robinson) refers, also, to his ³loving God daughters, Agatha and Catherine Daniel, daughters of Captain William Daniel,² bequeathing them one cow and one calf each.
    The fact that he ceased his Church, Military and Political activities abt 1696, and that he did not appear as a witness to prove Robinsonıs will lends support to the belief that he may have become physically inactive about that time. His will was made 08 Oct 1694. In it he styles himself William Daniel, Senior (name spelled Daniell). The original was witnessed by William Saddler, John Walker, Benjamin Thatcher, Thomas Vaux and William Downing. Later (date not known) a codicil was added witnessed by Wm. Brooks, Wm. Lyall and Arthur Hancock. The will was brought into Court 03 Oct 1698. The original was proved by only John Walker and Wm. Downing; the codicil by all three of the witnesses. The codicil recited that Benjamin Thatcher, one of the original witnesses, had died. A copy of the will is set out herein because of its importance in getting the lineage started correctly.

    (Signed) Will Daniell, Wm. Brooks (X his mark), Wm. Lyall (X his mark), Arthur Hancock.
    At a Court held for the county of Middlesex the 3rd day of Oct 1698, William Brooks, William Lyall, Arthur Hancock upon their oaths say they saw William Daniel, above named, sign, seal and declare the codisall to be his act and deed and that he was in perfect sense and memory. (Teste) Edwin Thacker, Cl. Cur. (Endorsed on Back) This is the last will and Testament of Captain William Daniell Senr. Return of the inventory of his estate were made by Richard and James Daniel in Oct 1715.
    The family name of his wife is unknown at the present time. Some claim she was a Smith, but nothing conclusive has been submitted in support of this. His will names 4 sons and 3 daughters, and the old Register of Christ Church Parish in Middlesex Co., Va, names a daughter Mary and a son John who died young. Some claim Jocebed was his second wife and cite his will as their authority. They draw this inference from the fact that in the original will his sons William and Robert, alleged to be from his first marriage, were not named as executors or overseers; and that the will refers to the other children as ³our dear children,² and this list does not include either William or Robert. It is to be noted that the Codicil made after Jocebedıs death does name both William and Robert as overseers with John Smith. It is obvious that Captain William was married years before the first record of his activities in Christ Church appears, for his sons William and Robert, were married before his last child was born.
    The old Parish Register of Christ Church as printed is in no sense a complete one. Its age and mutilated condition might explain the absence of many records of births, deaths, and marriages. In some cases these may be proved by other records; in others we must rely on deductions. Captain William DANIEL had:
  • 2* William DANIEL, born before 1664, died 29 May 1723.
  • 3* Robert DANIEL, born bef 1666, died 27 Dec 1720.

His record has been confused with that of his son, Robert, for both married and reared families in Middlesex Co., VA. However, the careful study of the wills, etc. by Judge Newman separated them.
