65 From "Genealogies of Virginia Families":

Captain Nicholas Martian was born 1591 (Hotten's Emigrants) and probably came to Virginia before 1620. There is on record in Northampton county an order of Assembly, dated March 28th, 1656, which states that Captain Nicholas Martian obtained his denization in England, and could hold any office or employment in Virginia. He was justice of York county from 1633 to 1637 (York Records); burgess 1623; for Kiskyache and the Isle of Kent 1631, and for Kiskyache 1632 and 1632-3 (Hening I, 129, 154, 179, 203.) His will dated March 1st, 1656, and proved April 24, 1657, is on record in York county, and divides his estate between daughters Elizabeth wife of Col. George Reade Esq.; Mary wife of Lieutennant [sic] Colonel John Scarsbrook, and Sarah wife of Captain William Fuller [at one time governor of Maryland.]

From "Adventurers of Purse and Person, Virginia, 1607-1624/5":

Capt. NICHOLAS MARTIAU, French Protestant, naturalized in England before sailing for Virginia on the Francis Bonaventure in the spring of 1620, came to the colony as one of two agents of the Earl of Huntington. He settled at Elizabeth City where he was listed in the census, 1623/4, and also in the muster, Feb. 1624/5 (as Capt. Nicholas Martue), when his age is given as 33 years. He is the progenitor of numerous American descendants, including Gen. George Washington and Thomas Nelson, signer of the Declaration of Independence, and also is an American forebear of Queen Elizabeth II of England.

Following the Indian massacre of 22 March 1621/2, Capt. Martiau with a company of men was sent up the James River to Falling Creek where the first iron works erected in the colony had been ruthlessly destroyed by the natives and where the inhabitants had suffered heavily. As a member of the House of Burgeses, 1623, he signed the completed draft of the First Laws made by the Assembly in Virginia, which, undertaken 1619, had been concluded 5 March 1623/4.

I. Mary Wingfield seems to have been born about 1721 and to have been married about 1736 to John Cosby (son of John Cosby and Martha Garland).

II. John Wingfield (b. 20 July 1723, Hanover Co., Va.; d. 3 February 1793 Wilkes Co., Ga.) m. in Hanover County 4 December 1744 Frances Oliver Buck (b. 5 May 1725; d. 25 February 1795, Wilkes Co., Ga.) This is the John Wingfield whose lands were processioned at the same time as those of John Wingfield, deceased, as hereinafter mentioned. After his son John reached his majority, this John regularly was referred to in the extant records as John Wingfield, Sr. As such he was allowed a claim for goods he had furnished in Hanover County for use of the Army during the Revolution. In November 1783 he and his wife Frances Wingfield joined with Frances Terrell in a conveyance of property to Benjamin Oliver witnessed by John Wingfield, Jr., David Meriwether, and Peter Cosby. John Wingfield, Sr., and his wife Frances also made a sale at the same time to Nathaniel Bowe. [Hanover County Deed Book, 1783-1785: 2, 3] But by a year later John and his family had removed to Georgia. The following are excerpts from the Hanover land records:

John Wingfield, Senior, of Hanover, names as his attorneys, "my well beloved friends David Meriwether and Edward Butler, and my son Thomas Wingfield, of the County of Louisa." They then conveyed to Henry Watkins a 1/2 acre 4 November 1784. [John Wingfield, Sr., was then in Georgia. J.G.H.]

John Wingfield, of the State of Georgia, purchased from Wm. Bowe, eldest son of Nathaniel Bowe 78 1/2 acres. Recorded 3 November 1785.

Thomas Wingfield, of the County of Louisa, attorney for John Wingfield, Sr., of the State of Georgia, to Benjamin Oliver, of the County of Hanover, 8 November 1785.

Thomas Wingfield, of Louisa, and Edward Butler, of Hanover, attorneys for John Wingfield of Georgia, are firmly bound to Benjamin Oliver ... as Frances Wingfield, wife of John Wingfield, of Georgia, had not released her dower rights in the same.

John Wingfield, Sr., of the County of Wilkes and State of Georgia, to Wm. Harris, of Hanover, power of attorney to settle any matters remaining in Virginia for him, 30 November 1788. [The previously appointed attorneys-in-fact for John Wingfield, Sr., had by this date settled in Georgia. J.G.H.]

In the Louisa County records there are numerous references to the subject of this sketch, John Wingfield, and his son Thomas. Some of these follow, being furnished to show the cross-country transactions:

29 December 1774 Thomas Johnson, of Louisa, sold 422 acres on Contrary River to John Wingfield, of Hanover.

8 March 1782 John Wingfield, of Hanover, conveyed to his son Thomas Wingfield, of Louisa, the above-mentioned acres whereon he now lives, "for love and affection."

17 August 1784 Archelaus Harris and Fanny his wife conveyed to Thomas Wingfield, all of Louisa, 300 acres on the South Fork of North Anna River.

13 March 1786 Thomas Wingfield and Elizabeth, his wife, conveyed to Francis Ford the plantation purchased of Archelaus Harris in Trinity Parish (Louisa) containing 300 acres.

23 September 1786 Thomas Wingfield, of Louisa, appointed Garret Minor, Wm. Cook, and Stephen Pettus, of Hanover, his attorneys.

8 April 1790 Garrett Minor and Wm. Cook, attorneys for William Wingfield, late of the County of Louisa, conveyed to James Nelson, of Hanover, 423 acres in Louisa adjoining John Wingfield's land on Contrary Creek.

22 March 1795 Thomas Wingfield, by his attorneys Garret Minor and Wm. Cook, conveyed to Nicholas Roper 400 acres in Louisa on Contrary Creek, in Trinity Parish.

John Wingfield, Jr., died testate in Wilkes County, Ga., where his Will dated 10 March 1791 was proved 5 January 1794. In it he made provision for his wife and their 10 living children: ...

VI. Thomas Wingfield (b. ca. 1733; d. Wilkes Co., Ga., will dated 21 August 1790, proved 22 July 1806) m. in Hanover County, Va., ca. 1754 Elizabeth Terrell (daughter of Joel Terrell and his wife Sarah Elizabeth Oxford). In the Hanover Tax lists of 1782 he appears as the head of a family of 9 whites who had 23 slaves. He seems to be the second of the family to be mentioned on the Wilkes County land records where we read:

24 July 1783 George Walton, of the State of Georgia, to Thomas Wingfield, Sr., John Grimes (son-in-law of Thomas Wingfield, Sr.'s.) and John Wingfield, Jr., of Hanover County, Va., bill of sale to 1150 acres known as The Ridge, adjoining Washington town and lands of Col. Williamson and Daniel Coleman. Witnesses: Will Terrell and John Wingfield, both of whom were justices of the peace. [Davidson, Early Records of Georgia, Wilkes County, Vol. I: 240].

(The first to be mentioned in Wilkes County records was the oldest brother John Wingfield to whom John Jones and wife Molly sold 450 acres on Beaverdam Creek on 9 January 1784. [Ibid.: 239]).

90 From "Genealogies of Virginia Families":

Lucy Bernard was daughter of William Bernard Esq., one of his Majesty's council of Virginia, and was the son of the Knight of Huntingdon.

Colonel Wm. Bernard appears, from the land grants, to have settled in Nansemond Co., Virginia, about 1640, and to have become in a short time, member of the council. Perhaps he was appointed before coming to the Colony. He was frequently present at meetings of the Council, between March, 1642-3, and March 1659--60. (Hening I, 239, 526 &c.)

As the records of Nansemond have been destroyed his will cannot be found. The records of York county show that in 1653 his wife was Lucy, widow of Lewis Burwell, and heir of Robert Higginson. He died before Oct., 1667, as his widow Lucy, was then the wife of Philip Ludwell.

"Knight of Huntington," in Mr. Rootes's account, probably refers to Francis Bernard, who for forty years resided in the town of Huntington, England; represented it in Parliament, was first created a knight and afterwards a baronet, and died in 1666, in his 66th year. The English pedigrees show that he was not the father of Col. Wm. Bernard. The latter may however have belonged to the same family. In Baker's "Northamptonshire" is a pedigree of the family of Bernard of Abingdon, in that county. The various branches are not fully carried out, and it is possible that Wm. Bernard was a brother of Sir Robert (who was son of Francis Bernard of Kingsthorpe, and grandson of Francis Bernard of Abingdon, who died in 1602,) or he may have been a son of Thomas Bernard, of Reading, Berkshire, who was also a son of the last named Francis Bernard. Foster's "Grays Inn Matriculations," shows that "Wm. Bernard of Abingdon, Co. Northampton, Gent.," entered Gray's Inn Nov. 1, 1631.

91 From "Genealogies of Virginia Families":

Lucy Bernard was daughter of William Bernard Esq., one of his Majesty's Council of Virginia, and was the son of the Knight of Huntingdon; and a daughter of Col. Hickerson of Dublin, who was the relict of Lewis Burwell, Esq. ...

Captain Robert Higginson (a name that appears to have been commonly pronounced Hickerson) seems to have been prominent as an Indian fighter. In 1646 and earlier he commanded at the Middle Plantation, a palisaded settlement. A deed, recorded in York Aug. 24, 1682, states that for his services he was given 100 acres at the Middle Plantation. He seems also to have owned lands in Martin's Hundred. The epitaph of his daughter Lucy (who died Nov. 6, 1675,) on her tomb in the Burwell graveyard at "Carter's Creek," Gloucester, only states that she was the widow of Major Lewis Burwell, and that, "She was descended from the Ancient family of the Higginsons. She was ye only Daughter of the valliant Capt. Robert Higginson. One of the first command'rs that subdued the country of Virginia from the power of the heathen."

In 1642 he volunteered in the King's army and saw some service; but on the decline of the Royal cause, went to France and became a Catholic priest. In 1659 he published in Paris a work in defence of Catholicism. He returned to England at the Restoration and died in 1669. There is a sketch of his life in the Dictionary of National Biography, which states that he was a brother to Robert Reade, who was secretary to his uncle, Sir Francis Windebanke; ...
