Henry Wilson

M, b. 1601, d. before 10 September 1638
Last Edited16 Oct 2013
Birth*1601Henry was born in 1601 at England.1 
Anecdote1619 Henry Wilson came to Virginia in 1619 on the Sampson and most likely was living at Capt. John Ward's plantation up the river from Jamestown at the time of the 22 March 1622 Indian attack. Christopher Barker, one of Capt. Ward's former servants, said that Capt. William Eppes took Capt. Ward's former servants to his plantation in Accomack in the summer of 1622. He indicated that Ward's houses were burned and nothing remained. On 16 Feb 1624 Henry Wilson was living on the Eastern Shore in Capt. William Eppes' household. He was still there in early 1625 and was described as a 24 year old servant. On 30 Jan 1626 Henry Wilson and his fellow servant, William Munn were authorized to sell their tobacco crop. However, they were obliged to post a bond guaranteeing that they serve the amount of time Capt. John Ward could prove he was owed. On 5 Feb 1627 Henry Wilson and William Munn asked the General Court to set them free, for Capt. Ward had returned to England without giving either of them the 50 acres of land, food, and clothing to which they were entitled. Both said that they wanted to plant for themselves and that their terms of service were almost finished. Since Ward was not available to appear on his own behalf, the General Court's justices agreed to free Henry Wilson and William Munn if they posted a bond. In 1635 Wilson patented 50 acres on Old Plantation Creek. He died prior to 10 Sep 1638, at which time his will was proved in Accomack County court.2 
Muster*February 1624/25Henry was listed in the Muster of February 1624/25 at Eastern Shore, VA. He was shown as Henrie Wilson, age 24 in Capt. William Epes' Muster, who came in the Sampson in 1619.1 
Marriage*after 1625He married Alice (-----) after 1625.3 
Anecdote*26 November 1635 On 26 Nov 1635 the death of Henry Caursley was referred to by his widow Elizabeth Caursley in her deed of gift to her children Agnis and Francis with Elizabeth's father-in-law (step-father) Henry Wilson to oversee.4 
Will - Mentioned in*23 April 1636Henry was mentioned in a will on 23 April 1636 at Northampton Co, VA. It was on this date that William Smith, planter of Acchawmack gave Elizabeth Harlow, daughter to John Harlow, the sow bought from Mr. Wilson.5 
Death*before 10 September 1638Henry died before 10 September 1638 at Northampton Co, VA. Will of Henry Wilson (not found) proved by the deposition of William Berryman. (Note: A subsequent record refers to Alice Wilson widow.)6

Marriage*before 1642She married Col. Thomas Johnson (Burgess), son of (father of Thos & Rich) Johnson, before 1642. Henrietta Ayres Sheppard says we have been unable to produce a likely first wife for Col. Thomas Johnson, unless it was the Mary Johnson, who was on his list of headrights in 1642. Perhaps Henrietta was not aware of the 29 Jun 1646 will of Ann Carsley, whose sister Frances Carsly was the Extr, who appinted her uncle Thomas Johnson to attend to the disposition of the estate. Based on this, evidently Col. Thomas Johnson had married Mary Berryman, a sister of Elizabeth Berryman the wife of Henry (1) Carsley, who had a daughter Frances, the Extr here, who later married Jeffery Minshall..3,4 
Married Namebefore 1642 As of before 1642,her married name was Johnson. 
Headright*1642Mary was named as a headright in 1642 at Northampton Co, VA. She may have been the Mary Johson on Thomas Johnson headright list of 1642..5

Last Edited28 Sep 2014
Birth*circa 1655George was born circa 1655 at England.1,2 
Marriage*circa 1677He married Grace (4) Savage, daughter of Capt. John (2) Savage I (Burgess) and Ann Harmanson, circa 1677 at Northampton Co, VA. In 1678 Captain John Savage left to his daughter Grace and her husband Dr. George Corbin three plantations tenanted by Samuel Yonges, John Abbott and Thomas Church, estimated to be 250 acres. In 1713 the will of a George Corbin (wife Susannah) mentions sons Ralph and Robert, daughter Ann Bloxom and her husband John, and a grandson George Bloxom. In 1737 Thomas Savage (wife Ester) left personalty to Savage Bloxom, whose own will was probated later in the year, when he mentioned no children and left everything to his wife Mary. In 1747 in a suit over a lease on the property it was brought out that Grace Savage had married George Corbin and after his death a Bloxom, by whom she had a son Savage Bloxom, to succeed to the title. When he died without issue, the descendant of John Savage II, the named heir of Captain John, had claimed title as the living heir-at-law (Whitelaw, p. 227). However an Orphans court held for Northampton County on 20 June 1733, Mr. Thomas Savage Guardian of Savage Blocksom came into Court and offered that he would Educate, Cloath and maintain the said Orphan for the proffits of his Estate and that he would also remit the Ballance of an accot this day orderd to be Recorded as likewise the Ballance of a former Accot Recorded wch after appearing to the Court to be for the benefit of the Orphan the same is agreed to (Walczyk, Gail M. Northampton County Orphans Accounts 17__-17__. Coram, NY: Peter's Row; p. 6).3,4 
Heir - named as*26 August 1678George was named as an heir on 26 August 1678 at Northampton Co, VA. In 1678 Captain John Savage left to his daughter Grace and her husband Dr. George Corbin three plantations tenanted by Samuel Yonges, John Abbott and Thomas Church, estimated to be 250 acres..4 
Anecdote*29 July 1681 At a court held on 29 Jul 1681 in N'hamp Co, the deposition of George Corbin aged about 24 or 25 years saith that when your depondents father in law Capt. John Savage deceased lay sick at your depondents house Mrs. Agnes Powell came to him and desired a note of him concerning her land and there was a note given her and further your depondent heard his said father in law say that there was a line laid out between Pettyjohn and Patrick this to the best of your depondents knowledge and further saith not.2 
Marriage*before 28 March 1688He married Susanna (-----) before 28 March 1688 at Northampton Co, VA. It was on this date that it appeared to the court by the oath of George Corbin that there is due to him as assignee of George West as intermarrying with Susanna the widow and relick of Peter Duparkes deceased four barrells of corn from the estate of James Gawagan deceased. It is therefore the judgement of the court and accordingly ordered that Col. John Stringer admin'r of the estate of the said Gawagan forthwith make payment of the said four barrells of corn to the said Corbin out of the said estate. James Gawagan died before 31 Jan 1687 when administration on his estate was granted to Col. John Stringer as his greatest creditor. Appraisers were George Corbin, Charles Wressell, Richard DuParks & William Baker..5,6 
Anecdote20 September 1691 In his will of 20 Sep 1691 Richard DuParks named friends John Baker and George Corben to divide his estate. Susanna Corben & Jane Clay were witnesses.7 
Land bought*4 June 1700Dr. George Corbin bought land on 4 June 1700 at tract A157, Pigg Point Plantation, Accomack Co, VA. George Corbin, Chyrurgeon, of Northampton Co, VA, bought 150 acres of A157 (between Sanford and the Pocomoke River) from Richard Sterling, calling himself Carpenter, who had heired the land in 1698 from his father William Sterling (wife Elizabeth) of Northampton. On 7 Oct 1707 Richard and Martha Sterling sold George Corbin 10 acres more and another 140 acres two years later. The point near the western end of this part was called Pigg Point, which name is still in use, and this half became known as the Pigg Point Plantation. In 1713 Dr. Corbin (wife Susanna) left this land to his sons Robert and Ralph (see will below). Some years later, William Sterling, son of Richard, gave a release to Robert Corbin for any interest he might have had in the land as heir of his father (Whitelaw, p. 1278). For more on this tract of land see the record of George's son Robert (wife Ann), who died in 1743.8,9 
Will*25 September 1711George made a will on 25 September 1711 at Northampton Co, VA. He was shown as George Corben, chyrurgoin. ITEM - To my two sons Ralph and Robert "Corbeene" all my land in Acc Co lying upon the mouth of the Pocomoke River to be equally divided among them. Ralph was to enjoy his part only during his natural life and it was then to revert to the other son Robert. (This is consistent with Ralph's verbal will which left no land, only the contents of a closet where he kept his books and medicines.) "My loveing wife enjoying her due share of third of the same as the law in such cases provides and enjoyes." ITEM - To my son-in-law John Bloxome and Ann his wife four cows with all their future increase. (Note: At that time, son-in-law also meant step-son. It seems that if Ann had been his daughter he would have left her the cows. It is possible that John Bloxom was a son of Susanna's by a prior marriage.) ITEM - To grandson George Bloxome two cows with all their future increase. ITEM - To my loving wife "Sussanna Corbeene" and Ralph and Robert "Corbeene" my two sons all the rest of my whole estate both within "dores" and without be it of nature and quality or condition what serves to be equally divided among them excepting one Mallatto girl which I do wholly give to my loving wife named America Georg: to be wholly at her disposal for the time she hath to serve. ITEM - Son Robert to be executor. Wittnesses: Thomas Griffeth Johnson, Francis Griffeth (Tompson) Johnson, and Nathaniel Capell. Son Robert, the executor, presented the will to the court and the above wittnesses took oath.10 
Death*before 16 June 1713George died before 16 June 1713 at Northampton Co, VA. It was on this date that his will was probated. It was proved by Thomas Griffeth Johnson, Frances Griffeth Johnson alias Tompson & Nathaniel Capell..10

Death*12 September 1876Henry died on 12 September 1876 at Richmond, VA, at age 69. Civil War Confederate Brigadier General, Virginia Governor. Born in Drummondtown, Virginia, he enrolled in Washington College, Pennsylvania, where he graduated with honors in 1825. After attending law school for 2 years, he began a legal practice. Early in his political life, he developed a reputation as an outspoken orator and zealous advocate of Southern rights and the slave trade. His first major political triumph came in 1833 when he was elected to the United States House of Representatives as a member of the Jacksonian Democratic party. A vocal member of Congress until 1844, he became the United States Minister to Brazil until 1847. Returning later to the United States, he participated in the Virginia constitutional convention. He served as Governor of Virginia from 1856 to 1860. John Brown's raid on Harpers Ferry provided the final, most prominent act of his administration; the execution of Brown. After Virginia seceded from the Union, in which he had served as a delegate to the Virginia secession convention, and with war impending, he, despite his lack of military training, volunteered for military service. On June 5, 1861, he was appointed Brigadier General of the Confederate Army. However, he proved to be an unsuccessful military leader. His troops suffered defeats by Major General Jacob D. Cox in the Kanawha Valley and by Brigadier General Ambrose E. Burnside at Roanoke Island, North Carolina. In the latter battle he suffered a personal loss, as his son was killed in the fight. For the remainder of the war he served in the coastal defenses of South Carolina and fought in the battles near Richmond, Petersburg, and Appomattox. During the last days before Appomattox he wore what looked like to many as war paint. Actually, he had washed in a muddy stream and his face was streaked. At Appomattox he was met by his brother in law, Union Major General George G. Meade. After the war he reopened his law office, never applying for the pardon that would have restored his United States citizenship. When he died in Richmond, he was considered to be one of the last great Southern individualists. He has two state counties named after him, in Texas and Virginia. Having set the example, his nephew, George Douglas Wise, sons, Richard Alsop Wise and John Sergeant Wise all later served in the United States House of Representatives. He was the son in law of John Sergeant, who served in the House and also was a Vice Presidential candidate in 1832. (bio by: Ugaalltheway).6
