Birth*after 1709Major was born after 1709 at Accomack Co, VA. 
Marriage*circa 1730He married Sarah (-----) circa 1730.1 
Anecdote*1740 In 1740 Major Bird purchased from Ansley and Tabitha Lingo 300 acres of land and marsh at Muddy Creek. It is doubtful that he left any male heir, as the land later was found in the possession of an Elizabeth Bird, who apparently remained unmarried, and a Lucretia who became the wife of Charles Broadwater (Whitelaw, pp. 1206-7). 
Death*1751Major died in 1751 at Accomack Co, VA. He died intestate by 30 July 1751, when Sarah Bird, apparently his widow, was named to administer his estate (Orders 1744-1753, p. 516). Major Bird had bought 300 acres of land and marsh on Muddy Creek (north side) in 1740 and 100 additional acres in 1750 (south side) from Isaiah Johnson. This land descended to two daughters, Elizabeth Bird and Lucretia, wife of Charles Broadwater, indicating Major Bird had no sons (Whitelaw, pp. 1206 and 1207). On 31 March 1774, Elizabeth Bird, Charles Broadwater and Lucretia, his wife, brought a suit against Isaiah Johnson "in ejectment" for 100 acres of land and marsh on Muddy Creek (Orders 1774-1777, p. 119). They lost the suit, suggesting that Major Bird died before he paid for the last 100 acres. On 6 December 1793, a survey was made of 200 acres bordering the north side of Muddy Creek (Surveyors Record No. 1, p. 249). This was divided between Elizabeth Bird and "Custis and Burton". On 24 June 1800, Elizabeth Bird sold John Kelly 12 to 15 acres "situated on Muddy Creek" for 1 pound 16 shillings. This was "marsh land that formerly belonged to Charles Broadwater" (Deeds 1800-1804, p. 6)..

William Byrd1

FatherJohn W. Byrd Sr. b. c 1745, d. 1829
MotherMary (-----) b. c 1745, d. b 1790
Last Edited30 Jun 2005
Birth*circa 1770William was born circa 1770 at Muddy Creek, Acc Co, VA.1 
Marriage*7 January 1792He married Keziah Hinman (Kelly?) on 7 January 1792 at Accomack Co, VA. He was shown as William Bird and she as Caziah Hinman. No other information was given..2 
Anecdote*1800 In the 1800 census, William Bird was designated as William Bird, J, aged 26 to 45 years, with a wife of the same age, and a son under 10 years. There was one other male in the household. William Bird owned two slaves in 1800. On 29 December 1800, William Bird bought 60 acres of land "at head of Muddy Creek", from Jacob Bloxom for 290 pounds (Deeds 1800-1804, p. 30).The land was bound on the northwest by the lands of John Riley, on the southwest and southeast by the heirs of Robert Mears, and on the northeast by the heirs of Oliver Bell. Jacob Bloxom had had this land surveyed on 30 October 1800 (Surveyors Record, #3, p. 23 and Whitelaw, p. 1202). It was an odd-shaped tract, bordered on the northwest "by the Bayside road dividing (it) from the lands of John Riley", the southeast portion extending back behind the Robert Mears land. The farm is located southeast of the intersection of present-day routes 658 and 682. It is directly across the road from the southern road to open water at Muddy Creek. A part of the 60 acres was owned by the family until 1905. 
Anecdote1810 The 1810 census again gave William Bird as head of a household, aged 26 to 45, with two females of the same age. Apparently his first son was deceased by 1810, for he only had one male in his household, under 10 years. He again owned two slaves. On 2h June 1811, William Bird, Levin Bloxom, and Erastus Poulson bound themselves, by a $1,000 bond, to George W. Smith, Esquire, Lieutenant Governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia, as William Bird was appointed, by the Court of Accomack County, as constable for precinct No. 1, for a two-year period (Deeds 1810-1812, p.286). William Bird was reappointed to this position every succeeding two years until 25 June 1821, when he was last named constable of "precinct of Accomack Parish" for two years (Deeds 1821-1822, p. 553). At this time, Crippen Taylor and Thorogood Taylor Joined him in binding themselves to Thomas M. Randolph, Esquire, Governor of Virginia, for $1500.
 
Anecdote1820 The 1820 census listed William Bird as head of a household, aged over 45, with two females over 45 and a son between 10 years and 16 years. He then had three slaves. On 6 July 1822, William Bird bought 43 acres of land from Spencer D. Fletcher for $400 (Deeds 1822-1824, p. 40). The land was bound on the north by lands of William Mason, on the east by the county road running from Muddy Creek to Messongo Bridge, and on the west by lands of Daniel T. Bird. On 4 July 1823, William Bird paid $40 for 11 acres of Abbott Bloxom land (Deeds 1824-1825, p. 148). He was the highest bidder for the land at an auction by James Gillet, Sheriff. No boundaries were given in the deed, but this land was apparently adjacent to his home farm. In his will, William Bird mentioned owning 10 acres Taylor land joining the last purchase, but no record has been found of him buying this or hiring it. Thomas Taylor owned 20 acres of land adjoining William Bird's home farm in 1789 (Deed 1788-1793 p. 259). 
Will*23 January 1825He made a will on 23 January 1825 at Accomack Co, VA. To Elizabeth Thorns my housman lands called my Bloxom land & 10 acres adjoining the Bloxom land called the Taylor land & at her death or marriage I give these lands to her son James Thorns. To son John Bird my land & house where I now live & my lands I bought of Spencer D. Fletcher & the remainder & if he dies before he arrives to age 21 or he has no lawful issue, then to James Thorns. Witt: Nathaniel S. Topping, Nancy Bird & Griffin Bishop. It is obvious that William Bird's wife, Caziah (Hinman) Bird, was in ill health, for him to have needed a housekeeper and not name her in his will. It is likely she had been unwell since losing a son and the birth of another between 1800 and 1810. This would account for the two females in the William Bird household in 1810, both aged 26 to 45. In 1820, they were both over 4, years. William Bird was seemingly trying to protect his wife, should their only son die, by leaving his property to the Thorns..3 
Death*February 1825William died in February 1825.3 
Probate*28 February 1825William's will was probated on 28 February 1825 at Accomack Co, VA. Nathaniel S. Topping & William Nock of Zadock became Admrs. with Walter D. Bayne, Thomas R. Joynes & Raymond Riley securities..3 
Est settm't*29 January 1827William estate was settled on 29 January 1827 at Accomack Co, VA. 28 Feb 1825 (Order to Invy), 3 Mar 1825 (Invy), 8 Dec 1826 (Audit), 29 Jan 1827 (Rec'd) - Appraisers: William Riley & John F. Riley. Nathaniel Topping & William Nock Admr. Paid Nathaniel S. Topping as trustee to the widow of William Bird dec'd. Paid to John W. Bird 2/3 to balance. Keziah Bird, widow of William Bird dec'd, received 1/3. Auditors: Henry Fletcher & John F. Riley. Nathaniel Topping was appointed trustee for Kasiah Bird on 8 December 1826, when she received one-third of her husband's estate (Wills 1826-1828, p. 217). Her estate was turned over to her son, John W. Bird, on 26 February 1827, when he gave a bond to the Justices of Accomack County for $3000 (Deeds 1825-1827, p. 28). It is not known when Casiah/Kasiah Bird Died. John W. Bird had two females in his household in 1830, age 50 to 60 years, and one in 1840, of 70 to 80 years. The inventory of William Bird's personal property was returned on 29 January 1827 (Wills 1826-1828, p. 212). It included twenty open notes of friends and neighbors, to whom he had loaned money. No slaves were listed, but approximately four pages was devoted to livestock, farming tools, household furniture, and other items. He owned a silver watch, a corner cupboard, a walnut table, a pine one and six Windsor chairs..4

There was one other male in his household, likely his cousin George P. Bird, aged 15 to 20. The two older females in the home, aged 50 to 60, appear to have been his mother and her nurse. John W. Bird had 11 slaves in 1830. 
Anecdote1831 On 30 June 1831, John W. Bird bought 43 acres from William Mason for $525 (Deeds 1830-1832, p. 212). This land adjoined, on the north, the 43 acre of the Spencer D. Fletcher land he had inherited from his father. The census of 1840 gives both John W. Bird and his wife as 30 to 40 years of age. They had two sons, one under 5 years and one between 10 and 15 years. There were four daughters in the household, all under 15 years, and one other female, aged 70 to 80 years. John W. Bird had 16 slaves in 1840. John W. Bird bought "Jester Land", on 1 July 1846 (Deeds 1846-1848, p. 219). The deed does not give the acreage of this tract, only that he paid $30, that it was the property of Henry Davis, deceased, and was sold at Nock's store. John W. Bird paid $60 for 6 acres on 2 October 1847, which he bought from John Y. Fitchett and wife, land adjacent his home farm (Deeds 1846-1848, p. 578). On 30 October 1848, John W. Bird bought 40 acres from John W. Tunnell and wife Rosetta for $400 (Deeds 1848-1849, p. 366). By 1850, John W. Bird's home place, the 60 acres his father bought in 1800, had grown into a 103-acre farm by additional purchases of surrounding tracts (Surveyors Record ;#7, p. 79). John W. Bird owned the 43 acres his father bought from Spencer D. Fletcher in 1822 (he called this "Fisher land" in his will, it contained a shoemaker's shop), the 43-acre Mason land, the 40-acre Tunnel land, the Jester land and his wife's 66-acre farm. Moreover, there were a number of deeds of mortgage, between 1827 to 1855, in which John W. Bird loaned money and accepted land and/or personal property as security. On 17 January 1843, his uncle ,Eburn Bird owed John W. Bird $1223.33 (Deeds 1842-1843, p. 507). This was cancelled on 31 March 1845 (Deeds 1844-1846, p. 273), but the same day a new mortgage was made by Eburn Bird to a group of people, John W. Bird being one of these (p. 265). This property was released on 27 June 1854 (Deeds 1853-1855, p. 553).

Anecdote*1854 In 1854 Elizabeeth W. Gibb received the following letter. Envelope: To Miss Lizzie W. Gibb, Horn Town, Accomac Co, VA. Inside: Sunday Evening, My dear Friend. I commenced and nearly completed a letter to you a few evenings since, but was interrupted. I therefore determine now to renew the efforts. How are you my darling? I am nearly sick with a dreadful cold. Indeed I have not been right well for some time. I pray that my health may be spared for my dear Boy's sake: beyond him I often think were it my Father's will to call me I would willingly go from this rule of tears. I hope I may be saved from the ____ of _____________; however fast and heavily my trials come. I work very hard my precious L and often fear I will not be able to fill my position. I hope you will not think I am finding fault with my good situation. I do not mean to, but my cares are more than I can bear up under many years. I am not more than mortal. Three months of "54" are nearly passed! How swiftly time flies. God only knows what is in store for me & mine, but I fear no evil. Into His hands I commit my all. "He doeth all things well." I have had the pleasures a call from Mr. C today. He seems in fine spirits, tells me you are not intending to return with him and has invited me to make a vacation and accompany you in May. It is needless to say such a thing would afford me great pleasure, could it be carried into effect, but there is a but in the way. Your sister Kate called on us yesterday, also Mrs. Joynes & Mrs. Duffield. I was delighted to see your sister, and was pleased with the other ladies. I want to see you dreadfully. Do write to me soon. I long to behold your signature once more. My time is so constantly occupied that I go out very little. I am always glad to see my friends however. Come whenever you can. I rec'd letters from my sister C____ last week, she wrote in excellent spirits. Mr F is in Europe, is to return in May. How have you enjoyed the return of winter the past few days? I fear we are to be deprived of peaches the next summer. Mr. Gaylord was here three times last week! On business. I am of the opinion he will not long remain here. I am almost sure he will leave soon. The girls tease me about him very much, but it is no use. I hope the dear main will be able to find a much better wife than your ____able friend would be (even if he wanted me) but I think him too wise to make so poor a choice as myself. I do not think there is much reason to fear for I doubt very much if any of my friends are thinking I could captivate any one. I myself feel as if my charms were very few. But enough of this. Remember me to your mother when you see her and write to me when convenient. Henry joins me in love to all at Cedar Grove. Pray for me my dear friend & believe me as ever your devoted. Signed: Ms H.3 
Anecdote5 December 1859 In Dec 1859 Elizabeth W. Gibb received the following letter. Envelope: Miss Elizabeth W. Gibb, Care of James W. Custis Esq, Williamsburg, VA. Inside: Edge Hill - Dec 5th 1859. My precious cousin: Words are inadequate to express to you my delight when I received you nice letter; which reached me last Wednesday. You ought to be ashamed of yourself for apologizing to me, for asking me to reply to dear Bittie's note. You ought by this time to know me well enough to feel assured that it always gives me pleasure to be of any service to my darling sister. I wrote to B. Saturday evening and intended to give the note to some of the family to take to her, when I went to Church yesterday. As the weather was unfit for me to go out yesterday, I sent the note to the P. Church; but it was returned to me with the words "none of Mr. Poulson's family were out." Don't be discouraged, she shall have it. As we expected, Dr. Browne returned on the 1st day of Winter. I spent the day with him and our dear little cousins. In afternoon he sent one home. I wish you could have witnessed the gratitude he, the Dr., expressed to me for staying with his children. I felt so glad that I had done it, more concerning it when we meet. Dr. inquired kindly for you. I told him you had written to me and asked me when I wrote to you to ask you to tell your mother that with regard to the little black girl at Mount Custis, she wished to hire; he would only have the authority to let her have her for two years, at the end of which time Nannie Bayly would be 21 and that the rest of Henrietta's children were so small. Mr. Simpson thought it was best for Eliza to stay with her mother, to assist her in taking care of the younger children so he could not hire her out. Dr. also said Eliza was so small, he did not think she would be of much use to Aunt Eliza. Bessie, last Tuesday morning, I called on Mr. Wiggins & lady - had a very pleasant visit, will relate the particulars to you when we get face to face. Saturday afternoon I was cheered by a letter from dear Mrs. H. She says she has nothing to complain of at Mr. R's. I feel as thankful to my Father in Heaven for giving her so many comforts as she now has. She wrote me that she was busy assisting Mrs. R & her daughter in making preparations for a large supper for Mrs. R's brother & his wedding company on the 8th - she did not say who was to be second Mrs. Snead. Bessie I want to say much more to you, but will have to stop to send my something to the office. Please say to aunt E. that I return many thanks for her note & will write to her before long. You ____ tell her, how highly I esteem her ______. Father and cousin I: join me in love to you all. When are you coming home? My love to cousin (Insept), Your fond cousin, Isabell.3

AnecdoteFebruary 1871 In Feb 1871 Elizabeth W. Gibb received the following letter. Envelop post mark: New York - Feb 13, Addressed to: Mrs. E. W. Kelly, Care of Mr. M. K. Kelly, Modest Town, Accomac Co, Virginia. Inside, top of 1st page: 133 Avenue B. - N.Y. City, Feb 12, 1871. Dear sister Bessie, My heart was cheered by the receipt of your nice letter of 2nd inst- received on Wednesday last. I, too, had been thinking much of you for several days, and I had resolved to write to you as soon as I could find time. Oh how I would love to sit beside you and talk to you, but, as our Heavenly Father in His love and wisdom does not see it to be best at present, I ask for grace to say in sincerity and truth "Not my will, but Thine O Lord, be done." It is blessed to "Lean Hard" on Him and be submissive to His _____ will, but I find "a law in my members" which makes me often rebellious and I cry out "O wretched one that I am!" But He knows it all and will yes bring me off "more than conqueror thereof Him who love us." The New Year had brought with it some changes for me, but none which manifests in a less degree of our Father's love for me. On the contrary He has shown in many ways, that I am the object of His loving and constant care. I must say I was rejoiced to hear from Isabella herself of her change of abode and of her intention to teach the children of Mrs. Savage. I wrote to her immediately to this effect and assured her that she would realize the blessedness of such as course. During her stay in Baltimore after having written as I did to you confidentially, I wrote to her advising her as I would an own child as to her finances &c and she received all I wrote most graciously and lovingly, replying in a very beautiful sweet way. I cannot tell you how thankful I was when I learned from her that she was to return to E.S. She is owing me a letter now. I think she will find it pleasant to teach provided she does not tax herself too much. Certainly she is very capable. And it must have been a great trial to her friends to see some of her queer doings. Dear girl. May our Father bless her and restore to her strength of mind and body. He will for she is His child. My health is in some respects improved. I am very busily engaged, you know it is not in me to be idle and I am constantly occupied. Consequently I find myself often weary. I believe my __astic would have me do with my might all that my hands find to do and I look to Him for my reward. I am sure of it if not here, hereafter, but I believe I shall be rewarded even here. I am sorry to hear of your "often infirmities" but, oh! so thankful for all His blessing unto you. I have great cause for thankfulness, for all His mercies unto me and when I think of what He has already done for me I surely can trust Him for more. I have been "copying" and "running the machine" at home, whenever I found anything to do, which has bee all the time since I returned from the South and now, in addition to sewing, I have a pupil, a young lady of 15 or 16 with whom I spend an hour and a half each day, five days in the week. I receive a dollar for each lesson. This is a relief from the confinement of the house and the society of her mother who is a perfect land and a lovely Christian and who seems very much attached to me, as I am to her. This is delightful change from the atmosphere of Greek Manuscripts, &c &c. This last is all very well in its place, but there is such a thing as getting tired of thing. Besides my dear Bessie, I have the consolation of being chargeable to no one and not of seeking a life of ease and self gratification and terming it a "life of faith" (James 2nd 17.18). I cannot conceive of a Christian's life being other than a life of faith, but it should, in my opinion, be one according to the mind of God and not according to our self will or our own minds. What a time of sorrow and affliction has been to Mr. & Mrs. Gibbons! Truly my heart goes out to them. Notwithstanding all that may have transpired, which according to the flesh would estrange me from them, I can never forget their kindness to me at the time of Mr. Hogins' death at Modest Town. Who of us has not erred, who of us has not failed in the love which beareth all things. Certainly I have failed, and have only to confess myself a poor sinner and nothing at all. My sufficiency is in Jesus, in whom I am complete. Our Heavenly Father _____ us in love. I believe I will write to Mrs. G. Possibly, I may be the instrument under the Lord of comfort to her. I rejoice to learn that their children "fell asleep in Jesus." Truly "Gods ways are not ours." The news of the death of the young lady who was expecting to spend the winter with you must have been a great shock. How we are made to fell that it is within us to direct our way and to realize the sovereignty of our God. Where is your dear mother? How is she? Give my love to her. And where is your sister Annie? Remember me to your sister K and all the loved ones. Isa wrote me that she wished I would find a situation as Governess for Nannie Ailworth. I've heard of nothing as yet, for it is not a good season to secure situations. This past week I was made quite anxious about my little darling. H wrote me of his having been sick and I went over to see him. This dear little beautiful face, showed signs of is having undergone intense suffering. I saw him yesterday and he was running about. He was seized with violent caroche and the pain with a good deal of inflammation went all over him, rendering him for several days helpless. Thank God, He has raised him up again. It is beautiful to see him and his Forrtree together. H is just napped up in him. Heny said to me not long since "M__tree, every body tells me I ought to be proud of this boy" Just as if I wasn't. Frank seems to have been born with a great fondness for me. He is very dear to me. But Bessie darling, I must close with much love for yourself and Mr. Kelly. Let me hear soon again will you not?
Lovingly your sister, Mary.3
