Biography* Henry may have been the son of John Culpeper the Merchant, who was the son of John Culpeper of Astwood in Feckenham and Ursula Woodcock, but this is far from being proven. While there is some evidence to suggest that the name of Henry's father was John, it has not been possible to prove that this John was the one just mentioned. But he seems to be a good candidate, since he was the right age to have been Henry's father, was known to have been abroad from England, and belonged to a family with other connections in Virginia.

It has also been suggested that Henry might have been a son of Thomas Culpeper of the Middle Temple, brother of the above John the Merchant. Although several of Thomas's children are known from baptismal records in England, one cannot necessarily conclude that the list of known children is a complete list, since neither Thomas nor his wife left a will.

It is also possible that Henry might be related to Sir Edward Culpeper of Wakehurst, Knight who signed the Third Virginia Charter in 1612.

A fourth possibility is that Henry of Lower Norfolk was the Henry Culpeper of London baptised in Westminster Parish, at Saint Margaret's Church, London, England, 20 Feb 1632, the son of William Culpeper of London, whose further ancestry is unknown. At one time it was speculated that William may have been a member of the Bedgebury Culpepers. Col. Thomas Culpeper of the Bedgebury family was buried at St. Margaret's Church, Westminster, London, in 1708. The given names used in the Bedgebury branch of the family are similar to the names used in early Virginia, such as Henry, James, Thomas, William, Elizabeth, Mary, and so forth.

If William Culpeper were one of the Bedgebury Culpepers, then all four of the possible fathers for Henry would have been related, with their most recent common ancestor being Walter Culpeper of Goudhurst, Bayhall & Hardreshull.

DNA testing has proven that the Culpepers of Barbados, the Culpepers of Puerto Rico, the Colepepers of South Africa, and the Culpepers of India and Australia are all closely related to each other, but they are not related to the American Culpeppers, for whom Henry is the progenitor. Further, the Culpepers of Barbados have been proven through traditional genealogical research to be descendants of William Culpeper of Hunton and Wigsell, a great-grandson of Walter Culpeper of Goudhurst et al.

Thus, the only known way at this time to explain the genealogical and DNA evidence is to say that either:
     (a) There is false paternity between Henry Culpeper of Lower Norfolk and one of his English ancestors,
     (b) Henry descends from some other unidentified English Culpeper who was not related to the famous Culpepers of Bayhall, Bedgebury, Preston Hall, Wakehurst, Leeds Castle and Hollingbourne, or
     (c) Henry was the individual baptized at St. Margaret's London, but his father William of London was not a Bedgebury Culpeper.

Whatever his ancestry might have been, Henry was probably born in England, perhaps around 1633, and came to Virginia as a young man, in May 1653 or prior. One cannot be certain of the exact date of his arrival, as Henry apparently paid for his own voyage, and then sold his claim to 50 acres of land (his headright) to Captain Nathaniel Hurd. He might have arrived some time prior to selling his headright, perhaps even years earlier. There is no evidence that Henry paid for his voyage by becoming an indentured servant to Captain Hurd. Only five years later (1658) Henry is mentioned as a Planter, and so seems to have been someone of means.

On 7 Dec 1658, "Henry Colepepper, Planter" sold a cow in Lancaster Co., VA (Virginia County Court Records: Deed & Will Abstracts of Lancaster County, Virginia, 1654-1661, p. 94). The fact that Henry was listed as a "Planter" indicates that he had chosen to make Virginia his home, that he owned land, and that he was apparently making a living raising cattle. Exactly what land he owned, where, and how and when he acquired it, has not been determined. A check of early Lancaster County tithable records does not reveal anyone named Culpeper, Culpepper, or Colepeper. This does not mean that Henry did not live in Lancaster County, just that he was not taxed for being a property owner.

On 14 Sep 1659, a "John Colepeper" was also noted in Lancaster Co., VA deed records witnessing a deed which set parish boundaries (Recorded 9 May 1660, p. 374. See Virginia County Court Records: Deed & Will Abstracts of Lancaster County, Virginia, 1661-1702, p. 88)

This same document is also referenced in Beverly Fleet's Virginia Colonial Abstracts, Vol. 1, Lancaster County, Record Book No. 2, 1654 - 1666. John Colepeper served "as a witness to a meeting of the parishoners of Lancaster Parish and Pieankitank for the final ordering of all differences betwixt the 2 parishes concerning the bounds of the sd parishes should be and extend according to an order of the County Court bearing date 10th day of Sept 1657." This meeting was recorded on 20 May 1660.

The area of discussion at the meeting is the part of Lancaster County across the Rappahannock River in what is now Middlesex County. Middlesex County was formed from Lancaster County in 1673. The Pianketank River (just mentioned) divides present Middlesex County from Mathews County. The records of Mathews County were burned during the Civil War, but Middlesex County, on the other hand, has excellent records, including the Christ Church Parish records. The Middlesex records are probably too late to be of much use.

Lancaster County records have survived, for the most part, from the beginning of the county in 1652, and should be studied further. Lancaster County, at the tip of the Northern Neck, was a home base of the Northern Neck Proprietary. Bill Russell has suggested that Thomas Culpeper of the Middle Temple, son of John of Feckenham, may also have lived in the Lancaster County area from 1649 until his death in 1652. For most of this time the area would have been in Northumberland County, the parent county of Lancaster County. Thomas was one-seventh proprietor of the Northern Neck under the charter of 1649.

A Henry Culpeper and a John Culpeper were both listed as "Shippers by the Defence," which was bound from London for New England 10 May 1664 - 30 June 1664. Also mentioned was Sir William Peake, who was perhaps the Sir William Peake who was Lord Mayor of London a few years later, in 1667. (The Complete Book of Emigrants 1661-1699, p. 64 by Peter Wilson Coldham, Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc).

It is difficult to say which John Culpeper this might have been, who was traveling with Henry. There were as many as three Johns in Virginia and neighboring Albemarle, NC, about this time: John (born 1606), John (born 1633, son of Thomas and Katherine), and John (born 1640's, of Albemarle). But it doesn't necessarily matter which John it was, as all three may have been related, and this record seems to connect Henry to this branch of the family, which is the descendants of John Culpepper of Feckenham (born 1565) and and his wife Ursula Woodcock.

No record has been found of Henry's marriage to Elizabeth. But evidence suggests that her maiden name was probably Greene.

By 1667 or prior, Henry had moved to Lower Norfolk County, VA. The deeds set out above are what we have been able to glean about him from the early Lower Norfolk records. It is important to note that Henry signed all of the above deeds with a distinct handwriten or script "H," suggesting that he was literate, and probably educated abroad. There are no further deeds in Lower Norfolk County signed with this mark after 1675. This writer has found that each of the first three Henry Culpeppers in Lower Norfolk / Norfolk County used a distinct mark in signing his deeds, and has used these marks to distinguish between the three men.

There are no further records on this Henry Culpepper or his wife Elizabeth in Lower Norfolk County after 1675, and he is assumed to have died in the few years following that date.

In 1691, Lower Norfolk County was split into Princess Ann County, and Norfolk County. The land where Henry and Elizabeth Culpepper had lived fell into Norfolk County.9,6

From the 1850 census, it is not clear that Alice was the mother of Daniel M., she may have been his step-mother. Daniel was a wheelwright in Norfolk in 1850.

Daniel was a private in the elite St. Bride's Cavalry, Co. F, 15th Virginia. This was one of the largest and best equipped calry companies in the Confederate service, with skilled and determined men and excellent horses. The men came principally from the St. Brides Parish of old Norfolk Co., and from that obtained its name. This unit saw much action in many battles. Daniel was killed in a bloddy cavalry charge at the Battle of Fredericksburg, VA in 1862.

Agnes Walker1

F, (say 1731 - )
FatherHenry Walker2 (s 1700 - )
Birth*say 1731 She was born say 1731 at Virginia.1 
Married Namesay 1748  As of say 1748, her married name was Adams. 
Marriage*say 1748 She married James Adams at Virginia say 1748. 
Marriage*circa 1767 She married Joseph Culpepper of Morgan Co. GA at Anson Co., North Carolina, circa 1767. Agnes and Joseph are believed to have had two daughters.2 
Married Namecirca 1767  As of circa 1767, her married name was Culpepper.1 
(Witness) Research note1 June 2006 From Wallace Adams-Riley:
     My father ...after having come across a published abstract, hired a couple of different folks to look through the records of Anson Co., N.C., and there found two deeds that were clearly our family:
     The first deed (the abstract for which he had come across) is from the 1750's wherein Henry Walker deeds land on the Rocky River to James Adams; and,
     in the second deed, from the 1760's, the same land is deeded by Agnes (or perhaps "Agra" -- hard to read)) Culpepper and a William Adams to a second party.
     Matching up the information in these deeds with the naming pattern of Joel's children (his first son being named James, and his third son being named Henry Walker), and with the family story, we feel confident that these are "our people," as they say. My "discovery" of the naming pattern in the Culpepper family (Joel, Joel Adams) seems to fit nicely with this line of thought, i.e., that Joel's step-brothers or half-brothers Malachi and Joseph III both named sons for him.3

Civil War*between 1863 and 1865 He served in the War Between the States between 1863 and 1865

     From his Confederate pension application, we learn that Robert was employed at the beginning of the Civil war "in the Gosport Navy Yard, but upon the evacuation of Portsmouth by the Confederates, this company of men were sent to Charlotte, North Carolina and employed there by the Government in the manufacture of Ordnance Stores, then these men were organized into a Military Battalion, and were frequently called from their post of duties to repel raiding armies of the enemy.
     "With the falling of Richmond, President Davis started sourthward and upon arriving at Charlotte, North Carolina, his train also bearing the specie which was in the Confederate Treasury in Richmond, volunteers from the above Military Battalion were called to escort this specie to the Army of General Kirby Smith. 60 of these men volunteered for that service, including Robert S. Culpepper, the applicant for pension."3 
(household member) 1870 Census1 June 1870 Mary, Robert, William, Ada, Sherwood and Rena listed as a household member living with Reuben Culpepper of Mecklenburg Co. NC on the 1870 Census at Charlotte, Mecklenburg Co., North Carolina.4 
(Son) 1880 Census1 June 1880 Robert, William and Reuben was listed as a son in Reuben Culpepper of Mecklenburg Co. NC's household on the 1880 Census at Mecklenburg Co., North Carolina.5 
1910 Census*15 April 1910 Robert was listed as a lodger on the 1910 Census at Houston, Harris Co., Texas.6 
Death*22 November 1929 He died at Portsmouth (city), Virginia, on 22 November 1929
The source for this date of death is unknown, and the date is probably in error since Robert appeared six months later in the 1930 census. There is no other likely person that the census record could refer to. At Findagrave.com (Memorial# 53053799), the 22 Nov 1929 date of death appears, but the photo there of Robert's tombstone simply says "R. S. Culpepper, CSA". Perhaps he died 22 Nov 1930.7 
Burial*circa 24 November 1929 His body was interred circa 24 November 1929 at Oak Grove Cemetery, Portsmouth (city), Virginia
1930 Census*1 April 1930 Robert was listed as an uncle in Albin S. Trant (or Traut)'s household on the 1930 Census. Albin S. Trant (or Traut).8

Daniel Culpepper Jr.

M, (circa 1756 - before 20 May 1811)
FatherDaniel Culpepper of Norfolk Co., VA (s 1732 - bt 1775 - 1778)
MotherMary (?) (s 1736 - )
Extinct Surname?* The family branch headed by Daniel Culpepper Jr. is believed to have no living male descendants with the Culpepper surname. If you know otherwise, please contact Lew Griffin using the link at the bottom of this page. 
Birth*circa 1756 Daniel was born at Norfolk Co., Virginia, circa 1756. 
Marriage*circa 1769 He married Mary (?) at Norfolk Co., Virginia, circa 1769. 
Tithable*10 June 1774 He and Daniel Culpepper of Norfolk Co., VA were included in a list of Tithables taken on 10 June 1774 at Southside of Western Branch, Virginia.1 
(Heir) Will23 April 1775 Daniel, Robert, William, Sarah and Thomas named as heir(s) at Norfolk Co., Virginia, on 23 April 1775.2 
1810 Census*6 August 1810 Daniel was listed as the head of a family on the 1810 Census at Saint Bride's Parish, Norfolk Co., Virginia. Enumerated in census but otherwise not identified is 1 M0-10, 1 M16-26, 1 F0-10, 2 F10-16, 1 F16-26 and 1 F26-45..3 
Will*25 April 1811 He made a will at Norfolk Co., Virginia, on 25 April 1811, naming as heir(s) Daniel Culpepper, John Culpepper of Calvert Co., MD, Asa Culpepper, Mary Culpepper, Martha Culpepper and Marina Culpepper.

To son Daniel, the cooper's tools formerly belonging to Daniel McCoy; to son John, my cooper's tools; to son Asa, my shoemaker's tools; to wife Mary, the use of my estate during her life. At wife's death, household property goes to daughters Mary, Martha, Marina, and land goes to son Daniel. Witness was James Grimes. Daniel signed with a mark.4 
Death*before 20 May 1811 He died at Norfolk Co., Virginia, before 20 May 1811. 
Probate*20 May 1811 Probate action was taken on Daniel's estate on 20 May 1811 at Norfolk Co., Virginia
(1) Research note25 May 2004 He is referenced in a research note for Daniel Culpepper of Camden Co., NC.5 
Research note*1 June 2004 Daniel Jr. is a known son of Daniel Culpepper, based on tithable records. The fact that this Daniel who died in 1811 was a cooper also supports that he was the the son of Daniel Sr. and grandson of Robert Culpepper Jr., who was also a cooper. Trades tended to be passed on from one generation to the next in a given family.

However, the fact that this Daniel was passing along cooper's tools apparently inherited from Daniel McCoy, suggests a connection to Camden or Currituck Co. NC, where the McCoy and Culpepper families were intertwined in early records:

Currituck Co. NC Book 7, p. 92: 2 Aug 1794
Aaron Brite, executor of Richard Etheridge of Camden Co., to Peter Culpepper, for £72, 50 acres adjacent to Daniel McCoy and Daniel McPherson. Witnesses: Daniel McPherson and Jesse Etheridge.

Suggest looking for a will or estate of Daniel McCoy in Camden Co. NC or Norfolk Co. VA.
