Biography*The following article is provided below (in its entirety) to help document the genealogy of this part of the Roades and collateral families.
Naomi Hinman of Lewes, Delaware, and Her Six Marriages: Roades, Fasset, Layfield, Newbold, Shankland, Warrington
by Helene C. (Mrs. D. Anthony) Potter.
In the register of the United Presbyterian Churches of Lewes, Indian River and Cool Springs, is found the burial record: "28 Feb 1768: Naomi Warranton (who had six husbands!)"(1)
This lady of matrimonial distinction was born Naomi Hinman(2), daughter of Richard Hinman, a vestryman of St. Peter's Episcopal Church, Lewes, Delaware, as early as 1731(3). His will dated 30 January 1740/41 and proved 13 August 1742, named his "daughter Naomy Roades widow of John Roads, dec'd." and his "two grandsons Hinman Roads and John Roads, sons of my above daughter Naomy."(4)
Naomi's first husband, John Roades, died intestate before 30 January 1740/41, the date of her father's will above quoted, and she was the administratrix of the former and the executrix of the latter estate.(5). By John Roades she had the two sons named above, Hinman and John, who were still minors in 1748 when the Orphans Court appointed Nehmiah Field and Jacob Phillips as their guardians.(6) Hinman Roades died without issue in 1754,(7) and John Roades the younger married on 22 February 1763 Elon (Helen) McIlvaine, (1) and died from "consumption from strong drink," (1) and was buried 6 November 1768, leaving on son Hinman Roades.(8). The widow Elon Roades married David Hazzard and had further issue;(9) she died, and was buried 5 March 1793.(1) See Bible records, postea(18).
The surname Roades is found variously spelled in the public records as Roots, Roads, Roades, Rhoades and Rhodes. John Roades Sr., the first husband named above, was a grandson of John Roads, a Judge of the early Court in Sussex County, and great grandson of Dr. Jan Roots, also a judge, who came from England prior to 1664, first to Virginia, and later to Maryland, moving to Delaware by 1671, where he perished in the burning of the Whorekill in 1673.(10)
Naomi Hinman Roades married secondly Capt. William Fasset, or Fassit, of Worcester Co, Maryland, by 1743, in which year Nehemiah Field complained to the Orphans Court that "Ye widow and administratrix of ye said John Roades was now married to Capt. Fassit of Worcester County, Maryland, and removed there without securing the portion and estates due to Hinman Roads and John Roads, minors and children of the aforesaid John Roades and grandchildren of Richard Hinman dec'd."(11)
Mary Fassit, daughter of Capt. William and Naomi (Hinman-Roades) Fassit, was born after her father's death in 1744/45. In his will dated 14 December 1744 and proved 26 January 1745, William Fassit listed his children, presumably by a former marriage, his wife Naomi and the "child she bears." The executors were the wife Naomi and testator's brother Rouse Fassit.(12) On 3 March 1763 Mary Fassit married William Thompson and had issue, Margaret, James, Naomi, and William Thompson.(1) Mary (Fassit) Thompson was buried 18 Feb 1775, and her husband William Thompson on 13 November 1809, "an aged rich man in this world's goods."(1)
Naomi Hinman Roades Fassit married thirdly Thomas Layfield in 1745-47. Their only child Thomas Layfield Jr. died unmarried and was buried 3 Apr 1774, the funeral being held "at William Thompson's Rehoboth."(1)
Naomi Hinman Roades Fasset Layfield married fourthly, by July 1748, Captain John Newbold of Worcester County, Maryland, on which date he, describing himself as "intermarried with Naomi Layfield, one of the executors of the estate of William Fasset, dec'd," petition the Orphans Court to settle the distribution of the estates of John Roades Sr. and Jr., Richard Hinman, and William Fasset.(13) Capt. John Newbold and wife Naomi had two sons, James and Francis Newbold,(7) of whom Francis died unmarried in 1771,(1) and James married Hannah Jacobs who died in 1825,(1) himself died intestate on 25 August 1831 leaving "no widow or children." His heirs were the heirs of his half-brother John Roads Jr. and of his half-sister Mary Thompson.(14) No record of Capt. John Newbold's death has been found.
Naomi Hinman Roades, Fasset, Layfield, Newbold, as the "Widow Newbold," married fithly on 12 March 1761 Robert Shankland.(1) This marriage was brief, as her husband was deceased by 2 August 176 1, on which date a Deed passed between the Administrators of Capt. John Newbold dec'd to Peter Marsh, in which a recital of title mentions "Naomi Shankland, widow of Robert Shankland and formerly widow of Capt. John Newbold," and refers to the settlement of the accounts of the Newbold estate in the Orphans Court of 5 February 1761.(15)
Naomi Hinman Roades, Fasset, Layfield, Newbold, Shankland married sixthly Thomas Warrington, and he was appointed the administrator of the estate of her minor son Francis Newbold, in the record of which it is stated that "The said Naomi afterwards intermarried with the said Thomas Warrington."(16) Record of this marriage has not been found. But there was evidently one child of this final union, Naomi, who is named as "sister Naomi Warrington" in the Will of John Roads Jr., dated 24 November 1768 and proved 11 February 1769.(17) This child may have died young, as she is not listed with the heirs in the Petition made to the Orphans Court of 12 May 1773 in the continued settlement of the estate of John Roades Sr., the first husband of Naomi the subject hereof. It is interesting to notice, in conclusion, that her grandson Hinman Roads, son of John and Elon (McIlvaine) Roads, married on 13 June 1787, Margaret Thompson,(1) her granddaughter, daughter of William and Mary (Fasit) Thompson, abovesaid.

(NOTE: In the above article Helene C. Potter failed to mention that the 24 Nov 1768 will of Naomi's son John Roades, that she shows named a sister Naomi Warrington, also named brothers James Layfield, and Francis and William Newbold. This shows that Naomi had 2 other sons that she did not account for: James Layfield and William Newbold. It seems questionable that Naomi would have named two sons James so close to the same age, James Layfield & James Newbold, and perhaps they are the same person.)3,8

John Newbold dec'd to Peter Marsh, in which a recital of title mentions "Naomi Shankland, widow of Robert Shankland and formerly widow of Capt. John Newbold," and refers to the settlement of the accounts of the Newbold estate in the Orphans Court of 5 February 1761.6,3

Dr. John Rhoades (I) (Chyrurgion)1

M, b. circa 1625, d. December 1673
Last Edited8 Jul 2019
Birth*circa 1625John was born circa 1625 at Wells, Somersetshire, England. 
BiographyIn her article about Naomi Hinman of Lewes, DE & her 6 marriages, Helen C. Potter shows him as Dr. "Jan Roots."2 
Marriage*circa 1650He married Katherine (-----) circa 1650. Somerset Sampler shows John Rhodes had a first wife named Katherine and that she was the mother of at least his first 4 children. However, his second wife Elizabeth named granddaughters Elizabeth and Patience Roades, who were the daughters of John Rhodes' first son John, who mentioned a living mother in his will of 1687. Torrence notes that children John, Robert, Martha and Werenia are simply recoreded as children of John Rhodes. When Werenia death was recorded she was shown as a daughter of John Rhodes and his wife Katherine. His last 2 children Elizabeth and William were recorded as the children of John Rhodes and his wife Elizabeth when they were born in Someset County. Torrence also notes that when the eldest son John died in Sussex County in 1687 naming "my most dear and tender mother" that he was evidently referring to his step-mother or mother-in-law. Following this logic one would also have to conclude that when the 2nd wife Elizabeth made her will in 1694 and referred to daughters and grandchildren that they were actually her step-daughters and step-grandchildren..3,4,5

Biography*1662Dr. John Rhoades of Wells, Somersetshire, England, immigrated to Northampton Co, VA, by 1662 and then to Annemessex, Somerset Co, MD, by 1663.7 
Marriage*circa 1663He married Elizabeth (-----) circa 1663.8,9,10,11 
Headright*23 February 1663Dr. John Rhoades (I) (Chyrurgion) was named as a headright on 23 February 1663 at tract A108, north side Hunting Creek, Accomack Co, VA. Patent to John Lewis for 1,000 acres for transporting 20 persons extending down the north side of Hunting Creek from A107 to the bay; in future transactions it was not possible to account for the full 1,000 acres, exept by including the marsh land attached, which was not the general practice in issuing patents. The 20 persons included Tho. Ryle, Jno Rhodes, Jno Creamer, Eliz. Doughty, Tho. Smith, Jno. Willis, Jno. Browne, Edw. Ward, Robt. Yallop, Gartrad Morkey, Clemt. Onely, Wm. Clavator, Susan Berry, Edw. Steward, Peter Baxton, Paul Lambert, Ann Fourd, Jno. Spillman, James Cooke & Maurice Peane.12 
Anecdote*10 November 1663 Some days after the people of the Manoakin area requested safety in regards to strange stories spread by Quakers, the court of Accomack (Present: Capt. Geo. Parker, Mr. Devorx Browne, Major Jno. Tilney, Mr. Hugh Yeo, Mr. Jno. West, Mr. Jno. Wise, & Mr. Edmond Bowman) on 10 November 1663 ordered the following: The residents at Manoakin and other remote parts of the county have confirmed their obedience by subscribing to the acts of assembly. This the Quakers and other factious persons have not done, and persisting in their rebellion have spread rumors to disturb the peace, pretending they come from the Lord Leist of Maryland. To prevent the designs of the Quakers, who are declared subversive to the government, and to serve the loyal subjects who requested protection, the following is ordered: Until the government can be fully informed of the affair, Capt. Wm. Thorne, an officer under Col. Scarburgh, Mr. Randall Revell, Mr. Wm. Bosman or Mr. Jno. Rhodes will have authority to call together and command His Majesty's subjects at Manoakin and as far as the Pokomock River to come together and arm themselves for protection from invaders and those that would disturb their peace or property. The court is assured that these rumors arise more from the Quakers' desires than from the Lord Leist of Maryland:
- That the Lord Leist of Maryland will hang those who subscribed their obedience to the government of Virginia
- That the Governor of Virginia "for meddling hath a piece of green wax sent for him"
- That Jolly intends to settle at Pokomoke River on people's land and hold it by force
- That Col. Scarburgh for executing the command of Virginia's assembly deserves to be hanged, and "more stuff like this"
Scarburgh concluded his account by saying that further action rested with "your honors." He wrote to the Lord Leist of Maryland, sending a copy of the act and offering to meet with Mr. Catlet and Mr. Laurance if his Honor desired. Having received only a "capitulatory letter," he presumes that the Lord Leist to have had representation at Jamestown. He now expected orders or to have the affair left with the court of Accomack. If necessary, the Quakers, "whose interest will never permit their consciences to comply with that government which is inconsistent with their affairs," will be brought before "your Honor." Signed, Edm. Scarburgh.13 
Anecdote*before 1665 John Roades came into the Province of Maryland by 1665 when he transported himself, his wife Elizabeth and children John, Martha, Mary, Veronoka and Elizabeth. (NOTE: The record did not show where they came from, so it is assumed they came from Acc-N'hamp Co, VA, as a John Rhodes was there in 1661.) At the Somerset County Court on 11 Dec 1665 John Roads was plaintiff against Henry Boston and on 25 Sep 1666 John Rhodes petitioned the court that there was tobacco due to him from Mary Barnebe, relict of James Barnebe. On 10 Jan 1665 John Roads registered his cattle mark in Somerset County Court.14,15

Family 1

Katherine (-----) b. c 1630, d. c 1661
Marriage*circa 1650He married Katherine (-----) circa 1650. Somerset Sampler shows John Rhodes had a first wife named Katherine and that she was the mother of at least his first 4 children. However, his second wife Elizabeth named granddaughters Elizabeth and Patience Roades, who were the daughters of John Rhodes' first son John, who mentioned a living mother in his will of 1687. Torrence notes that children John, Robert, Martha and Werenia are simply recoreded as children of John Rhodes. When Werenia death was recorded she was shown as a daughter of John Rhodes and his wife Katherine. His last 2 children Elizabeth and William were recorded as the children of John Rhodes and his wife Elizabeth when they were born in Someset County. Torrence also notes that when the eldest son John died in Sussex County in 1687 naming "my most dear and tender mother" that he was evidently referring to his step-mother or mother-in-law. Following this logic one would also have to conclude that when the 2nd wife Elizabeth made her will in 1694 and referred to daughters and grandchildren that they were actually her step-daughters and step-grandchildren..3,4,5

Land sold*6 May 1730John (of Thos) Northam sold land on 6 May 1730 at Accomack Co, VA. The deed for land John and Rachel Northam sold Mary Andrews was presented by John Osbourne and recorded.2 
Survey Hwy appointed*4 February 1730/31He was appointed a surveyor of the highways on 4 February 1730/31 at Accomack Co, VA. Ordered that John Northam be surveyor of the road from Gingoteague Bridge to the line on the Sea Side in the place of Daniel Smith.3 
Survey Hwy appointed4 March 1734/35He was appointed a surveyor of the highways on 4 March 1734/35 at Accomack Co, VA. William Beavens and Anderson Patterson (gentlemen) were appointed to lay out a road from the main county road through the land of Mr. William Gore to the bridge under construction over Swansigutt Creek and from the bridge through the land of Thomas Savage to the "supposed Line which divides Virginia and Maryland." John Northam (surveyor) was to keep the road in repair.4 
Court - nam in petit*January 1738/39He was named in a petition that was recorded in court records in January 1738/39 at Accomack Co, VA. On the complaint of Rachel Northam, her husband John was bound to keep the peace, but in January 1738/39, he was released from his bond because no one appeared to protest. During the next ten months Rachel probably noticed that she was seeing less of her husband; he was unlawfully cohabiting with Sarah Benston for least part of that time. While her husband's philandering may have been part of the picture, it was not the whole story. The following January Rachel came to court and petitioned that "she had for a long time by past been used with so much Cruelty by her Husband that she could not with Safety of Life longer cohabit with him." He refused to support her even though she had brought several slaves and a considerable estate to their marriage. Now, because of infirmity, age and her husband's abuse, she claimed she was unable to work for her living. Penniless, Rachel was declared a pauper and assigned Geo. Douglas as her attorney. Northam went on to other things, including obtaining a discharge from the bond keeping him from Sarah Benston, but poor Rachel and her petition simply faded away.5 
Survey Hwy appointed20 May 1740He was appointed a surveyor of the highways on 20 May 1740 at Accomack Co, VA. William Gore in the place of John Northam.6 
Court - named in ord*28 May 1740He was named in a court order on 28 May 1740 at Accomack Co, VA. Sarah Benston and John Northam were discharged.7 
Marriage*circa 1746He married Rachel Bell, daughter of Edward Bell and Mary (-----), circa 1746.8 
Administrator*28 March 1758John was named as administrator of an estate on 28 March 1758 at Accomack Co, VA. In his verbal will, William Northam gave to son William land purchased of Southy Northam. To daughter Nanny Northam. The things conveyed me by Thomas Northam to remain in his possession during his life. Proved by John Northam and Rachel Northam. In the order of probate, John Northam qualified. (NOTE: After spending much time trying to sort out the first few generations of the Northam family on and off for many years, and without clear documentaton, it is assumed that the Thomas Northam named in this will was the testator's brother, that the Southy Northam named in this will was the son of his brother Thomas, and the John Northam who proved the will and settled the estate was also a son of his brother Thomas. Evidently the sale of the land purchased of Southy Northam, which he gave to his son William (evidently under age), had not been finalized and recorded as the next year (June 1759) the land was conveyed from Southy to William of Wm dec'd (age about 17 or younger). Then in Jan 1762 William of Wm dec'd (about age 20 or younger) chose Southy (his older cousin) as his guardian. Then in Dec 1766 William died (about age 24 or younger) and Thomas Northam (his uncle) was named administrator.)8 
Security on Admin*27 March 1764He was security on the administration of an estate on 27 March 1764 at Accomack Co, VA. It was on this date that administration on the estate of William Bell was granted to Bridget Bell with John Northam & William Warner securities.9
