Edward Byrd

M, b. circa 1642, d. before 3 August 1697
ChartsAncestors of Barry Wayne Miles
Last Edited9 Jan 2011
Birth*circa 1642Edward was born circa 1642 at Shafston, County Dorset, England.1 
Biography*Early theory was that this Accomack Co, VA, Byrd family came from the Western Shore of Virginia to settle at Muddy Creek in the early part of the eighteenth century and that there were a lineal descendant of William Byrd, who settled on the James River in 1610. Accomack County records prove conclusively that this is not the case. The James River Byrd family started with William Byrd I, who died there in 1704, leaving only one surviving son, William Byrd II, of Westover. He died in 1744, with only one son, William Byrd III. It appears there could have been no relationship between the two families in this country. It is interesting that the father of William Byrd I was a John Bird of London, goldsmith. There could have been a family connection in England. The Byrds of Westover and the Birds of Muddy Creek were not the only families to bear the name in early Virginia records. The names of Richard Bird, John Bird, James Bird and Robert Bird appeared between 1635 and 1658. A Thomas Byrd was in Northampton County by 1658. There was a Joseph Bird who gave a deposition in Northampton County in September of 1680, giving his age as 16 years (N'hamp Orders &, Wills 1678 - 1683, p. 90). His name was among Accomack County tithables in 1692, 1693, 1694, and 1695, but did not appear again in local records. Tracing this Bird line has been complicated in only two places. The first was solved when it was found that Whitelaw (p. 1201) was mistaken when he stated Solomon Bird did not mention land in his will and the finding of a survey record proving John Bird inherited Solomon's land. It took a while longer to find what next happened to Solomon's land. Son John left it to his son Ebourn, but Ebourn Bird did not inherit it. A chancery record cleared up this point. The Bird name in Accomack County started to change to Byrd circa 1855. The 1860 census shows approximately two-third Byrds and one-third Birds. 
Marriage*circa 1663He married (-----) (-----) circa 1663 at Shafston, County Dorset, England.1 
Anecdote*1664 Edward sailed for Virginia, apparently leaving his family, a wife, young son (perhaps age 1-2) behind in England.1 
Headright*10 May 1664Edward was named as a headright on 10 May 1664 at Accomack Co, VA. It was on this date that Edward Bird was given as a headright by Richard Kellam, when the latter was granted 900 acres in Accomack County "at head of Mathepungo Creek, beginning on the north side of his former divident" (Nugent, p. 454). Richard Kellam had patented 100 acres in 1662, "near Matchepungo Creek, bordered on the east by the seaboard" (p. 419). The location of Richard Kellam's land between present-day Kller and Painter, extending eastward toward the barrier islands (Whitelaw, p. 763), places Edward Bird in the lower part of Accomack County in 1664. He likely had bound himself, for a few years, as an indentured servant to Richard Kellam, to pay back his transportation costs from England. Edward Bird's name appears as an Accomack County tithable (on the tax lists) from 1676, showing he owned property with a value to be taxed from that date. Robert Taylor and wife Hannah sold 100 acres to Edward Bird on 20 December 1692 for 3000 pounds of tobacco (Wills & C Orders 1682-1697, p. 263).This land was located near present-day Locustville (Whitelaw, p. 850).. 
Marriage*circa 1690He married Jane Spiers (Spiers?), daughter of (father of Jno & Jane) Spiers, circa 1690 at Accomack Co, VA.2 
Will*12 April 1697He made a will on 12 April 1697 at Accomack Co, VA. In the name of God Amen ye Edward Bird of Accomack County in the Colony of Virginia being of imperfect health but of perfect memory praised be the Lord Imprimis doe Comit my Soule into the hands of my heavenly father hopeing to receive free pardon & forgiveness of all my Sinns and my body to be buried in Christian manner as my Exectr hereafter nominated Shall think fitt & Convenient Item I make my Sonn in Law William Rodgers Sole & whole Execetr of this my Last Will & Testament revokeing all other wills or deeds of Sale formerly by me made to be null & void. Item I doe give & bequeath unto my aforesd Sonn in Law William Rodgers all my houses Lands, Chattells at moveables of what nature soever to him & his Lawfully begotten heirs for ever; he my aforesd Sonn in Law maintaining me & my now wife Jane Bird in sufficient victualls & Cloths during our naturall Lives.
Item I give. bequeath unto my sonn John Bird one yearling heifer to him & the Lawfully begotten heirs of his body for ever. Signed Sealed & delivered Edward Bird in the presence of us Edmund Allen, William Dennison, and Tho: Agen. (Acc Wills & Etc 1692-1715, part 1, p. 166). In recape, he named his "son in law" William Rodgers as executor and left him "all my houses, Lands, Chattells and moveables of what nature soever" provided he maintain him and his "now wife Jane in sufficient victualls and cloths during our naturall Lives". He bequeathed one yearling heifer to his son John Bird. (Wills & Etc 1692-1715, part 1, p. 166)..2 
Death*before 3 August 1697Edward died before 3 August 1697 at Accomack Co, VA. It was on this date that his will was probated..2 
Anecdote1698 At the time Edward Bird wrote his will, "sons in law" were usually step sons. Edward Bird had likely married William Rodgers' widowed mother as his second wife. However, William Rodgers could have been his actual son-in-law also. Jane Bird and Bridget Bird both proved the will of John Spiers in 1693 (Wills. C 1692-1715, p 36). Bridget Bird could have been Edward Bird's daughter, who later married William Rodgers. William Rogers wrote his will in 1724 (Deeds Wills 1729-1737, p. 154). He named no wife, but made his only daughter, Bridget Rogers, the executrix of his estate. Bridget Bird could also have been Edward Bird's daughter-in-law, the wife of his son, John Bird. The records suggest, without proof, that either Edward Bird's first wife or his son John's wife, was a daughter of William Ebourne. William Ebourne was named as a headright for Mr. John Browne, when he patented land in upper Northampton County in 1652 (Nugent, p. 267). William Ebourne and Margaret Ebourne (apparently a first wife) gave depositions in Accomack County on 17 April 1665 (Deeds & Wills 1663-1666, p. 96). At this time William Ebourne gave his age as "thirty-two years or thereabouts". Margaret was twenty-five. William Ebourne had died intestate in Accomack County, by 14 September 1677, when Thomas Chapwell was named to administer his estate (Orders 1616-1678, p. 63). On the same date, Mary Chapwell, wife of Thomas Chapwell, asked the Court for guardianship of Sara Ebourne, the daughter of her former husband, William Ebourne, who was under eighteen years of age (p. 62). William Ebourne and his wife Mary had given depositions on 13 February 1672/3 (Orders Wills & C 1671-1673, p. 163). Sara Ebourne likely married John Spiers, since he named Sarah as his wife in his will, and Jane Bird and Bridget Bird (who proved the will) would have been Sarah's sister's husband's second wife and her niece or her nephew's wife, respectively. With the death of William Ebourne in 1677, the Ebourne name disappeared from Accomack County records, except as a given name in the Bird line. 
Anecdote*1708 On 4 May 1708, a Margrett Bird, "late servant to William Boggs", brought a suit against Boggs for refusing "to pay her or give her corn or money as ye law directs (Acc Co Orders 1703-1709, p.114). On 8 June 1708, William Boggs was directed by the Court to pay Margrett Bird 15 bushels of Indian Corn and 40 shillings (p. 118). Margrett Bird could have been a daughter of Edward Bird. The only known son of Edward Bird and his first wife, who was likely a daughter of William Ebourne, was John Bird, born circa 1673. The birth date of John Bird has been estimated from tax lists. From 1676 to 1688, Edward Bird had only one tithable. In 1689, he had two. The second male would have been son John Bird, who had passed his sixteenth birthday.

Birth*1663John was born in 1663 at Shafston, County Dorset, England.1 
Anecdote*1684 On 19 Jun 1684, John Bird, son of Edward Bird from Shafston (Shaftebury), County Dorset, at age 21, sails from England bound over to a London Merchant by the name of John Bright. The young John Bird is a cordwayner (maker of fine cordovan shoes for the wealthy). He is literate and signs his own name to the papers of indenture. John has £5 in his possession when he sails for Virginia on the ship Booth, commanded by Capt. Peter Pagan. John Bird arrived in Virginia in 1684. It was apparently he in his father's household from 1689 through 1695, the second tithable.1 
Will - Father's*12 April 1697John was named in his father's will on 12 April 1697 at Accomack Co, VA. He was shown as a son John Bird in the will of Edward Bird, now wife Jane..2 
Marriage*circa 1700He married Ann Ebourne, daughter of William Ebourne and Mary (-----), circa 1700 at Accomack Co, VA. John Bird married circa 1700 or slightly before. The name of his wife has not been proven, but she was possilby an Ebourne, since he named a son Eborn Bird. Ann Ebourne seems to be a possilbe choice.. 
Land bought*3 June 1701John bought land on 3 June 1701 at Accomack Co, VA. It was on this date that John Bird, planter, bought 200 acres of land at head of Gilford Creek between two Branches" from Griffith Savage for "divers good Causes and valuable Consideration" (Deeds & Etc 1692-1715, part 1, p. 449). John Bird, planter, sold the same land to Abraham Riggs on 5 March 1717/8 (Deeds Wills & c 1115-1729, part 1, p. 49). John Byrd, planter, bought 650 acres of land and marsh on the south side of Cattaile Creek from William Nock, locksmith, on 15 September 1715, for "Divers Good Causes him thereunto Moving: 'but More Especiall for 25,000 pounds of tobacco"(Deeds Wills & c 1715-1729, part 1, p. 16). The deed explains that William Nock had bought the land, as part of 1,050 acres, from George Johnson of Muddy Creek and he (Nock) excepted a road through the land" to my Marsh". The 650 acres extended south of the present village of Mearsville on its western side and the road to the marsh appears to be present route 685. The tract was part of the area formerly called Muddy Creek and portions of the land has belonged to John Bird's descendants until modern times.. 
Will*26 January 1727/28He made a will on 26 January 1727/28 at Accomack Co, VA. John Bird, planter, left son Nathaniel Bird "the land whereon he now lives" and the balance of his land and marsh to son Solomon Bird, reserving the right of son Nathaniel to use the marsh for "Ten head of Cattle and one horse Kind." Son Solomon was to have the privilege "to get Timber on any part of my land for his plantation's use" and these sons were not to sell or dispose of any timber on the land. He gave sons Major Bird and Solomon Bird "all the Scotch pladd that is in my house and Sixty yards of Crown Linen and a piece of Irish Linnen Containing Twenty three Yards". Son Nathaniel was given one Iron pott which he now has and Two Cows and Calves. All the remainder of his estate was to be divided between sons Eborn, Daniell, Major and Solomon. Son Nathaniel was named executor. In a codicil, John Bird gave son Nathaniel his "Stillards" and son Major Bird was given "all my Cash of Gold and Silver to remain in the Custody of son Nathaniel untill the said Major shall attain to ye age of Eighteen Years". John Bird signed his will with his mark. (Deeds Wills & Etc 1715-1729, part II, p. 298). No date of probate was given when the will was recorded, but wills directly before and after were both recorded on 5 March 1727/8.. 
Death*February 1728John died in February 1728 at Muddy Creek, Acc Co, VA.3 
Anecdote*3 June 1728 The inventory of John Bird's personal property was made on 3 June 1728 (Deeds Wills & c 1715-1729, part II, p. 347). It is unusual in that a large part consists of materials. He owned "100 yards Brown Linen, 84 yards Virginia Linen, 60 yards Crown Linnen, 5 yards fine Linnen, 4½ yards fine Chex, 18 yards Tieken, and 20 yards Scotch pladd". Additional personal property named was household furnishings, including pewter candlesticks, a pewter tankard, plates, spoons, an old gun, leather for two pair of shoes, some old books and an old Bible. Clothes consisted of a jacket, a pair of "Cloath Britches", a felt hat, worsted stockings, a silk handkerchief and "Virginia Linen shirts". John Bird also owned 700 pounds of tobacco, a horse, hogs, and fowl. It is also unusual that John Bird had no daughters, at least he did not name daughters in his will. It he were a planter with five sons, it seems they would have needed a female in the household. His daughters, if any, could have married before he wrote his will. He could have remarried after his first wife's death but, since he named no wife in the will, this would be only supposition.

Birth*circa 1704Solomon was born circa 1704 at Accomack Co, VA.1 
Will - Father's*1728Solomon was named in his father's will in 1728. Solomon Bird was one of the sons named by John Bird in his will of 1728. He would have been circa 24 years of age when his father died, leaving him "all the remainder of my land and marsh". He heired the western part of his father's land, which included the marshes. Byrds Marsh likely was named for Solomon Bird, who bought other land and marsh in the same area.. 
Marriage*circa 1743He married Ann Bull, daughter of Tobias Bull (II) and Frances (-----), circa 1743. Solomon Bird had married by 29 April 1748, when his wife Ann joined him in deeding land (Deeds 1746-1757, p. 121). His wife was Ann Bull, the daughter of Tobias Bull, who wrote his will on 4 May 1751, naming a daughter as "Ann Bird, Wife of Solomon Bird (Wills 1757-1761, p. 275)..2 
Anecdote*1746 Solomon Bird, planter, bought 50 acres of marsh and hammocks from Elijah Nock on 29 April 1746, for 12 pounds. The land was located "at the mouth of Cat Tail Creek, bound on the south by said Creek" (Deeds 1737-1746, p. 499). He and wife Ann sold this tract back to Elijah Nock on 29 April 1748 (Deeds 174 6-1767, p. 121). On 14 April 1752, Solomon Bird bought 50 acres from Joseph Bell and wife Comfort, for 62 pounds 1 shilling 6 pence (Deeds 1746-1757, p. 160). He sold this land to Jonathan Mears on 27 September 1784 for 150 pounds (Deeds 1783-1788, p. 160). On 24 September 1754, Solomon Bird, planter, and Ann, his wife, sold to William Beavans, 34 acres land and marsh for 12 pounds 15 shillings. The deed states this was part of a parcel conveyed to Solomon by Thomas Fisher by a deed recorded amongst the "Records in the Secretary's Book of the Colony of Virginia" (Deeds 1746-1757, p. 525). No record has been found of the purchase in Accomack County records. Solomon Bird made two other sales from the land he bought of Thomas Fisher. On 27 July 1777, he sold 25 acres land and marsh to Jacob Bird (Muddy Creek), for 10 pounds (Deeds 1777-1783, p. 30) and on 17 January 1778, he sold 25 additional acres to Nathaniel Bird, Junr for 10 pounds (p. 31). His wife did not join him in signing these deeds, showing she was deceased by 1777.

Wife & son Daniel Exrs. Witt: Major Ironmonger, John Ironmonger, Cornelius Ironmonger.3 
Will - Brother's*30 December 1778Solomon was named in his brother's will on 30 December 1778 at Accomack Co, VA. In his will Nathaniel Bird Sr. gave son Jacob Bird a parcel of land that the widow Harmon now lives on containing 60 acres. To brother Solomon Bird land he now has in possession.

In order of probate: Nathaniel Bird heir at law to the testator.4 
Will*28 September 1784He made a will on 28 September 1784 at Accomack Co, VA. Solomon Byrd sold none of the land his father left him. He wrote his will on 28 September 1784 and it was recorded on 30 November of the same year (Wills 1784-1787, p. 83). He left daughter Esther Bird two slaves and furniture. He gave a bed and a slave to daughter Rebecca Bird. He directed that his still and "one corner cupboard" not be removed from his land. He gave a slave, Derry, his freedom and half his clothes. The other half was to go to Negro Abner. He loaned his land and the balance of his personal property to three daughters, Esther Bird, Rebecca Bird, and Scarbough Bird during their single life. He stipulated that the three daughters "have liberty to sell any part of my estate to live on", also "if either of my said daughters should unlawfully Cohabit or marry then they or either of them shall forfeit their right and Title to that part of my estate lent them". Solomon Bird signed his name to his will, indicating he had been educated. Esther Bird appeared in Court and qualified as executrix.. 
Death*November 1784Solomon died in November 1784.5 
Probate*30 November 1784Solomon's will was probated on 30 November 1784 at Accomack Co, VA.5 
Anecdote20 May 1785 The inventory of Solomon Bird's personal property was taken on 20 May 1785 and returned to Court on 26 February 1788, signed by Esther (her mark) Bird, Solomon Johnson and James Duncan (Wills 1788-1794, p. 22). It included 4 slaves. Livestock consisted of , horses, 22 cattle, 11 hogs, 20 geese, and 11 "Dunghill fowls" (chickens). Household furnishings included 2 beds and furnishings, a maple desk, a corner cupboard, 12 pewter plates, 6 pewter "Basons", a pewter dish, a Delph Dish, a loom, a linnen wheel and a woolen wheel, also a "Sermon Book" and two other books. A number of farm equipment and tools were listed, as was a "Brandy Still" and a "Cyder Mill". Among his clothes was a pair "Spectacles'" and "one pocket Bottle". He had 3 pounds in cash, a bond of Jonathan Mears' for 120 pounds and a "Note of hand of Oliver Bell's five Pounds".
Since Solomon Bird only loaned his property to his daughters, it is evident he knew that according to the law of primogeniture, in effect at that time, his property would eventually go to his oldest son and his heirs. On , April 1792, a survey was made of land of John Upshur of Northampton County, "land lately sold to Mr. Solomon Johnson on head of Cat Tail Creek on the Bayside near Messongo Creek" (Surveyors Record 11, p. 19). The land was bound on the northeast by the remainder of lands of Mr. Upshur, on the northwest by "lands of John Bird late of Solomon" and on the southeast and east by "Cat Tail William Bloxom". Solomon Bird's daughters had sold no land between 1784 and 1792 (they sold none at all) and John Bird had bought no land during the same period. John Bird, owning land in 1792 that had belonged of Solomon Bird, shows Solomon Bird had at least one son and likely others. The 1783 tax list for Accomack County gives the names of Solomon Bird, Senr, John Bird, and Solomon Bird, Junr grouped together.
