John Lewis (I)1

M, b. 1619, d. 3 March 1696/97
Last Edited8 Oct 2017
Birth*1619John was born in 1619 at London, England. Some sources show John Lewis (1619-1697), who came to Accomack Co, VA, was a son of John Lewis & Joan Powell of London, England. The MilesFiles showed this as well up thru version 16.3 (19 Aug 2016). But now it seems with all the John Lewises being born in London during this period, there is no direct proof that the John who came to Accomack Co, VA was a son of John Lewis & Joan Powell..2 
Baptism27 June 1619He was baptized on 27 June 1619 at St. Martin's in-the-Fields, London, England.1 
Anecdote*1632 In 1998 Robert J.C.K. Lewis showed that John Lewis (1619-1697) married Mary Gardner in London in 1632 and that he came to Acc Co, VA by 1636. He cites his earlier work referred to as A Brief History of the Lewis Family of Accomac Co, VA (1619-1971), Washington, DC 1972 and the research of Mark C. Lewis located at the Eastern Shore Public Library at Accomac, VA. However, both of these references show John Lewis of Accomack Co, VA has having only a wife Lucretia, who was by inference Lucretia Pott. The MilesFiles, up thru version 16.3 (19 Aug 2016), was based on Robert Lewis' work. But it now seems unlikely that this John Lewis married first at age 13 and that there was no second wife, and that Lucretia was his only wife and mother of all of his chidren.1 
Immigrated*21 August 1635John immigrated on 21 August 1635. After examination as to their religion by the Minister of Gravesend, England, Jo. Lewis, age 16, and 57 others were to be transported to Virginia in the THOMAS, Henry Taverner, Master..3,4 
Headright*20 June 1636He was named as a headright on 20 June 1636 at tract N3, Northampton Co, VA. He was shown as John Lewis on a certificate for 100 acres of land granted to John Furbush.5,6 
Anecdotecirca 1640 For a number of years John Lewis (A108) was in the employ of John Neale, and after that of Colonel Edmund Scarburgh. He was a contemporary of Richard Hill of A86, across the creek, and at times each of them was an overseer of Colonel Scarburgh, who seemed to hold both in high regard and when they were ready for patents of their own, the colonel perhaps assisted the two friends to take up the lands across the creek from each other.5 
Marriage*circa 1651He married Lucretia Pott circa 1651. According to Whitelaw, John Lewis' wife was named Lucretia, but it has seemed impossible to identify her correctly; Mark C. Lewis, a descendant and the present authority on the Lewis clan, thinks by inference she may have been a Lucretia Pott, who was on the Shore at about the right time to fit that theory. In his will, he mentioned no daughters, but it is almost certain that he had at least one, who at the time may have been dead; she was Mary, first the wife of Isaac Dix (A103) and then the wife of William Groten. There were Dix children, but as they had been well provided for, Lewis may not have thought it necessary to leave them anything..1,5

Family

Lucretia Pott b. c 1630
Marriage*circa 1651He married Lucretia Pott circa 1651. According to Whitelaw, John Lewis' wife was named Lucretia, but it has seemed impossible to identify her correctly; Mark C. Lewis, a descendant and the present authority on the Lewis clan, thinks by inference she may have been a Lucretia Pott, who was on the Shore at about the right time to fit that theory. In his will, he mentioned no daughters, but it is almost certain that he had at least one, who at the time may have been dead; she was Mary, first the wife of Isaac Dix (A103) and then the wife of William Groten. There were Dix children, but as they had been well provided for, Lewis may not have thought it necessary to leave them anything..1,5

Mary Gardner

F, b. circa 1610
Last Edited8 Sep 2016
Birth*circa 1610Mary was born circa 1610. 
Marriage*24 July 1632She married John Lewis on 24 July 1632 at St. Martin's in-the-Fields, London, England. In 1998 Robert J.C.K. Lewis showed that John Lewis (1619-1697) married Mary Gardner in London in 1632 and that he came to Acc Co, VA by 1636. He cites his earlier work referred to as A Brief History of the Lewis Family of Accomac Co, VA (1619-1971), Washington, DC 1972 and the research of Mark C. Lewis located at the Eastern Shore Public Library at Accomac, VA. However, both of these references show John Lewis of Accomack Co, VA has having only a wife Lucretia, who was by inference Lucretia Pott. The MilesFiles, up thru version 16.3 (19 Aug 2016), was based on Robert Lewis' work. But it now seems unlikely that this John Lewis married first at age 13 and that there was no second wife, and that Lucretia was his only wife and mother of all of his chidren..1 
Married Name24 July 1632 As of 24 July 1632,her married name was Lewis.

Biography*1722In one of the editions of Lewis Patriarchs of Early VA & MD, Robert Lewis reported that this Richard Lewis (of John I) left the Eastern Shore of Virginia circa 1710 for North Carolina and married Deborah Bonner and had children Richard, Sarah, Deborah and John Lewis. In another edition of his book Robert Lewis shows he was possibily the same as Richard Lewis of Cecil Co, MD, who married Anna (-----) and had Richard Jr. of St. John's Manor, Cecil Co, MD and John, who married Martha (-----) and had John Jr. who married (H)Ester, daughter of John Pennington. However, since a John Lewis of Richard, age 15, was bound out in 1720 in Accomack Co, VA it seems more likely that this Richard Lewis did not leave Accomack Co, VA.1

Last Edited16 Sep 2016
Birth*circa 1630Lucretia was born circa 1630 at England. 
Marriage*circa 1651She married John Lewis (I) circa 1651. According to Whitelaw, John Lewis' wife was named Lucretia, but it has seemed impossible to identify her correctly; Mark C. Lewis, a descendant and the present authority on the Lewis clan, thinks by inference she may have been a Lucretia Pott, who was on the Shore at about the right time to fit that theory. In his will, he mentioned no daughters, but it is almost certain that he had at least one, who at the time may have been dead; she was Mary, first the wife of Isaac Dix (A103) and then the wife of William Groten. There were Dix children, but as they had been well provided for, Lewis may not have thought it necessary to leave them anything..1,2 
Married Namecirca 1651 As of circa 1651,her married name was Lewis. 
Land cert named in*3 September 1651Lucretia Pott was named in a certificate for land on 3 September 1651 at Northampton Co, VA. Certificate was this day granted to Mr. Edmund Scarburgh for 3,600 acres of land for transporting a list of persons into the colony including Lucretia Pott.3 
Jury duty17 April 1677She served on a jury on 17 April 1677 at Accomack Co, VA. Richard Hill summoned a jury of inquest to investigate the death of a bastard child born to Elizabeth Man, who was "privately delivered thereof contrary to law." The jury found several injuries on the child, so it was ordered that the sheriff take Eliz. Man into custody till the next court, where she was to appear for further questioning. Ordered that Mary Aires, Mary Finlow, An Brown, and Christian Blacklock be summoned to testify. The jury's verdict concerning a bastard child born to Elizabeth Man, who reported that it was stillborn: the child was injured on the left breast and in the mouth, and since Eliz. Man was delivered privately, they questioned her "for further light", as they did the reputed father, Peter Booty, who was the first person that came into the house. The jury found that their stories varied. Signed 26 March 1677, by: Mary Aires, Christian Blacklock, Ann Browne, Patience Drumond, Mary Finlow, Marie Hill, Rebecca Karte, Lucretia Lewis, Elizabeth Loame, Eleanor Macklamie, Ann Marshall, Ann Ternan.4

In his will John Lewis Sr., of Hunting Creek, gave son John Lewis plantation on Hunting Creek for life then to his two sons, William & John Lewis. To son Robert Lewis land on Hunting Creek. To son Richard Lewis land on Hunting Creek. To 3 sons John, Robert & Richard marsh land. To wife Lucresia. Richard Drummond Ex'r. Witt: Daniel of St. Thomas Jenifer, Nich: Hill, Richard Hill, John Drummond.5 
Will - Presented wil*6 April 1697Lucretia presented a will on 6 April 1697 at Accomack Co, VA. Lucretia Lewis (widow of John Lewis, Sr.) presented Lewis' will to the court. Robert Lewis, one of the sons of John Lewis, Sr., was granted administration. Capt. Daniel of St. Thomas Jenifer, Nicholas Hill, Capt. Richard Hill and John Drumond had witnessed the will. John Drumond "being present in court did declare after the manner of the Quakers in ye presence of God that he writ the said will and saw the same sealed & delivered and published as the act & deed of the testator." Mr. Nicholas Hill had died since witnessing the will, but the court compared handwriting and proved his signature. However, since Capt. Danl. of St. Thomas Jenifer "is now out of ye country" full probate could not be made. "The said will being very much impaired & torn, the said Lucretia Lewis & Robt. Lewis prayed that the said will might be put on record."6

Gov. Dr. John Potts Sr.

M, b. circa 1580, d. before 1645
Last Edited7 Sep 2016
Birth*circa 1580John was born circa 1580. 
Biography*1619John Potts or Pott was a physician and Colonial Governor of Virginia at the Jamestown settlement. John is said to have taken his masters degree at Oxford University in 1605. He was recommended as physician to the Virginia Company of London. In the minutes of the Virginia Company of July 16, 1621, is the following entry: "For so much as the Phisicons place to the Company was now become voyde by reason of the untimely death of Dr. Bohune, slaine in the fight with two Spanish Shipps of Warr the 19th of March last, Dr. Gulstone did now take occasion to recommend unto the Company for the said place one Mr. Potts, a Master of Arts, well practised in Chirurgerie and Physique, and expert also in distillinge of waters." John and his wife, perhaps named Elizabeth or Anne, sailed from London aboard the George in March 1619. The George was a 150-ton sailing vessel with William Ewen as the master. After a two-month passage the vessel arrived in Jamestown, VA in May 1619. In 1623 John gained notoriety as the individual who prepared the poison served the Native Americans during a "peace ceremony" at Jamestown, killing 200 of them in retaliation for the Indian Massacre of 1622 which killed nearly a third of the colonists the preceding year. In 1625, he was commissioned a member of the Governor's Council, in which office he continued a number of years. In 1628 he was chosen Governor and held the position from 1629 until the early part of 1630, when, being accused of stealing cattle, he was removed. Pott(s) was convicted for cattle theft by the Council on 9 Jul 1630. John's plantation was called "Harrop," perhaps in honor of his ancestral home because Harrop in Cheshire, England was the residence of some Potts at that time. This plantation, patented in 1631, may also be related to Harrop Parish established in James City Co, VA in 1644. On 12 Jul 1632 John obtained a patent for 1,200 acres at the head of Archer's Hope Creek. Part of this land was to become a fortified palisade across the peninsula. In Feb 1633 the General Assembly enacted that a fortieth part of the men in "the compasse of the forest" east of Archer's Hope and Queen's Creek to Chesapeake Bay - essentially all of the lower peninsula - should be present "before the first day of March next" at Dr. John Potts' plantation, "newlie built," to erect houses and secure the land in that quarter. With this labor, palisades six miles long were run from creek to creek, and on the ridge between a settlement called Middle Plantation was built. The ridge between the creeks was well drained and the deep ravines penetrating from the north and south made the site strategic. The only road down the peninsula was over this ridge, and this road was easily defended. The town of Middle Plantation was renamed Williamsburg, VA in 1699.1 
Death*before 1645He died before 1645 at Jamestowne, VA. Dr. Potts is believed to have had no children, and apparently died prior to 1645.

After they spoke to West, he sent for the horse out of his pasture. Richard identified it as the horse once belonging to his father; West said he could not tell, "but they told me that this is my horse." Richard offered to take the horse and bring him to the next court, but West refused, saying he would do it himself, and "If it proves the old man's horse, if he will pay me ye pair of shoes which I gave for bringing of him home, he may have the horse." Later West came to Bundock's house "and agoing from (my) house along a path that goes to Mary Groton's, (I) told the said West that the said horse was certainly Henry Johnson's horse, and Col West replied that he had sold ye said horse over the Bay and that if Henry Johnson would have the horse, he must shew (sue?) him for ye said horse, and 'if it proves to be the old man's horse, I must pay him for ye said horse.'"
