Anecdote*circa 1750 Patrick Henry was an American Revolution-era orator best know for his quote "Give me liberty or give me death." Henry was an influential leader in the radical opposition to the British government, but only accepted the new federal government after the passage of the Bill of Rights, for which he was in great measure responsible.
Early Life -
With his persuasive and passionate speeches, famed patriot Patrick Henry helped kickstart the American Revolution. He was born in Hanover County, Virginia, on a plantation that belonged to his mother's family. Unlike his mother, who had strong roots in the region, his father immigrated to the colony from Scotland. The second oldest out of nine children, Henry received much of his schooling from his father, who had attended university in Scotland, and his uncle, an Anglican minister. He was a musical child, playing both the fiddle and the flute. He may have modeled his great oratory style on the religious sermons by his uncle and others. With his mother, Henry sometimes attended services held by Presbyterian preachers who visited the area. At the age of 15, Henry ran a store for his father. The business didn't last, and Henry had his first taste of failure. He married Sarah Shelton, the daughter of a local innkeeper, in 1754. As part of his wife's dowry, Henry received some farm land. He tried growing tobacco there for three years, but he didn't fare well in this new venture either. In 1757, Henry and his wife lost their farmhouse to a fire. He then managed a tavern for his father-in-law and studied to be a lawyer. In 1760, he secured his law license. He and Sarah had six children together.
Lawyer and Politician -
As a lawyer, Henry developed a reputation as a powerful and persuasive speaker with the 1763 case known as "Parson's Cause." The Virginia Colony passed a law changing the way church ministers were paid, resulting in a monetary loss for the ministers. When King George III overturned the law, one Virginia clergyman sued for back pay and won his case. Henry spoke out against the minister, when the case went to a jury to decide damages. Pointing out the greed and royal interference in colonial matters associated with this legal decision, he managed to convince the jury to grant the lowest possible award—one farthing, or one penny. In 1765, Henry won election to the House of Burgesses. He proved himself to be an early voice of dissent against Britain's colonial policies. During the debate over the Stamp Act of 1765, which effectively taxed every type of printed paper used by the colonists, Henry spoke out against the measure. He insisted that only the colony itself should be able to levy taxes on its citizens. Some in the assembly cried out that his comments were treason, but Henry was unfazed. His suggestions for handling the matter were printed and distributed to other colonies, helping to spur on the growing discontent with British rule.
American Revolutionary -
An active force in the growing rebellion against Britain, Henry had the remarkable ability to translate his political ideology into the language of the common man. He was selected to serve as a delegate to the Continental Congress in Philadelphia in 1774. There, he met Sam Adams and, together, they stoked the fires for revolution. During the proceedings, Henry called for the colonists to unite in their opposition to British rule: "The distinctions between Virginians, Pennsylvanians, New Yorkers and New Englanders, are no more. I am not a Virginian, but an American." The following year, Henry gave perhaps his most famous speech of his career. He was one of the attendees of the Virginia Convention in March of 1775. The group was debating how to resolve the crisis with Great Britain—through force or through peaceful ends. Henry sounded the call to arms, saying, "Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? ... Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!" Only a short time later, the first shots were fired, and the American Revolution was under way. Henry became the commander in chief of Virginia's forces, but he resigned his post after six months. Focusing on statesmanship, he helped write the state's constitution in 1776. Henry won election as Virginia's first governor that same year. As governor, Henry supported the revolution in numerous ways. He helped supply soldiers and equipment for George Washington. He also sent Virginia troops—commanded by George Rogers Clark—to drive out British forces in the northwest. After three terms as governor, Henry left the post in 1779. He remained active in politics as a member of the state assembly. In the mid-1780s, Henry served two more terms as governor. Henry held strong anti-Federalist views, believing that a powerful federal government would lead to a similar type of tyranny the colonists had experienced under Britain. In 1787, he turned down an opportunity to attend the Constitution Convention in Philadelphia. His opposition to this famed document did not waver, even after receiving a draft of the Constitution from George Washington after the convention. When it came time for Virginia to ratify the Constitution, Henry spoke out against the document, calling its principles "dangerous." He felt that it would negatively impact states' rights. Considering the strong support for Henry in Virginia, many Federalists, including James Madison, feared that Henry would be successful in his anti-Constitution efforts. But the majority of lawmakers were not swayed to Henry's side, and the document was ratified in an 89-to-79 vote.
Final Years -
In 1790, Henry left public service. He chose to return to being a lawyer, and had a thriving practice. Over the years, Henry received numerous appointments to such positions as Supreme Court justice, secretary of state and attorney general, but he turned them all down. He preferred being with his second wife, Dorothea, and their many children, rather than navigating the world of politics. (His first wife had died in 1775, after a battle with mental illness.) Henry was the father of 17 children between his two marriages. Henry spent his last years at his estate, called "Red Hill," in Charlotte County, Virginia. In 1799, Henry was finally persuaded to run for office. He had switched political parties by this time, becoming a part of the Federalists. At the urging of his friend, George Washington, Henry fought for a seat in the Virginia legislature. He won the post, but he didn't live long enough to serve. He died on June 6, 1799, at his Red Hill home. While he never held national office, Patrick Henry is remembered as one of the great revolutionary leaders. He has been called the "Trumpet" and "Voice" of the American Revolution. His powerful speeches served as a call for rebellion, and his political proposals offered suggestions for a new nation.3

Henry Seawell

M, b. 1610, d. 1644
Last Edited25 Feb 2015
Birth*1610Henry was born in 1610.1 
Anecdote*1630 Henry Seawall, for whom Seawall's Point was named, was an early resident of what became Norfolk County. He represented the Upper Parish of Elizabeth City County as a burgess in 1632 and Lower Norfolk County in 1639 and 1640. This service qualifies him for representation in the Jamestowne Society. Seawall was living in Virginia as early as 1630. He married Alice, surname not proven. He died in 1644. He had two children Ann and Henry. The son Henry was born 1 May 1639, according to depositions made in June 1662 (Norfolk Co. Wills and Deeds, D. pp.347a, 348). His sister Ann was born 1634 or 1635 according to a deposition made in 16 Aug 1672. On 27 February 1649/50 (Lower Norfolk Co. Order Book B, p. 137a) the estate of Henry Seawall was settled. The orphan son Henry was sent to Holland to be in the care of his kinsman Thomas Lee. He eventually was apprenticed to William Scapes of Yarmouth, England to learn the trade of merchant on 22 Mar 1654. He had served his time by 14 June 1662. There is som correspondence that mentions the illness of young Henry and then reports of his improved health and his education. The daughter Ann was married to Lemuel Mason. By 16 August 1672, Henry Seawall Jr, is reported as lately dec'd and Ann, wife of Lemuel Mason is her sole heir (NEHGR, v.47, p.70). This is also in a deed from Lemuel Mason and wife Anne heir of our brother Henry Seawall, dated 16 February 1674 (Norfolk Deeds and Wills E, p. 181a). She died testate by 15 March 1706/07 (Norfolk Do Record Book 7, p. 117) when her will was recorded. Her children were Thomas Mason, Lemuel Mason, George Mason, Margaret Mason, Elizabeth Mason Cocke, Frances Mason Newton-Sayer, Alice Mason Hodge-Porten-Boush, Anne Mason Kendall-Collier, Mary Mason Cocke, Abigail Mason Crawford, Dinah Mason Thorowgood-Wilson-Trevethan. As Henry Seawall Jr's sister was his sole heir, there are no descendants of Henry Seawall Sr. except through his daughter Ann Mason. Claims of descent from this Henry Seawall by Seawalls in Maryland are not substantiated by the extant record.2 
Marriage*circa 1632He married Alice (-----) circa 1632.2 
Death*1644Henry died in 1644.1,2

Will*14 November 1749He made a will on 14 November 1749 at James City Co, VA. I, John Custis of the City of Williamsburg and County of James City, in the Colony of Virginia, being weak in body but of sound mind and memory, do make this my last will and testament, in manner and form following. Imprimis, my will and earnest desire that my Executor hereafter named to lay out and expend as soon as possible after my deceased, out of my estate the sum of one hundred in pounds sterling money of Great Britain to buy a handsome tombstone of the best durable white marble, large and built up of the most durable stone that can be purchased for pillars - very decent and handsome - to lay over my dead body, engraved on the tombstone my Coat of Arms, which are three parrots, and my will is that the following inscription may also handsomely engraved on the said stone, vizt. Under this marble stone lies the body of the Honorable John Custis, Esquire, of the City of Williamsburg and Parish of Bruton, formerly of Hungars Parish on the Eastern Shoar of Virginia and County of Northampton, the place of his nativity, aged ---- years, and yet lived but seven years, which was the space of time he kept a Bachelor's House at Arlington on the Eastern Shoar of Virginia; this inscription put on the stone by his own positive Orders, and I do desire, and my will is and I strictly require it, that as soon as possible my real dead body, and not a sham coffin, be carried to my plantation on the Eastern Shoar of Virginia called Arlington, and then my real dead body be buried by my grandfather, the Honorable John Custis, Esquire, where a large Walnutt formerly grew, and is now inclosed with a brick wall, which brick wall it is my will, and I strictly charge and require it, that the said brick wall be always kept up in good repair very handsomely by my heir that shall enjoy my estate, and if my heir should ingratefully or obstinately refuse or neglect to comply with what relates to my burial in every particular, then I bar and cut him off from any part of my estate, either real or personal, and only give him one shilling sterling, and in such case I give my whole estate real and personal to the next heir male of my family named Custis that will religiously and punctually see this my will performed, but more especially what and ways relates to my burial in general; and if by any accident the tombstone and appurtenances should be lost, broke or any wayes miscarry in coming from England or any other ways whatsoever, in that case my positive will is, and I earnestly require it, that my heir or executors immediately send to England for such another stone exactly with the appurtenances of the said piece until one shall come safe to hand, according to my will and desire. I give my dear friend Thomas Lee, Esquire, if living at my death, two hundred pounds sterling, to buy him any one thing he has in minded to remember me. I give to my worthy and much esteemed friend John Blair, Esquire, one hundred pounds sterling. I also give to Mrs. Mary Blair, the wife of the said John Blair, five guineas to buy her a mourning ring. Whereas my plantation called Arlington on the Eastern Shoar of Virgina is entailed by my grandfather the Honorable John Custis, Esquire, on the heirs male of my body lawfully begotten, and for as much as my father, the late Honorable John Custis, Esquire, had a Patent in his own name for two hundred and fifty acres of the said Arlington Plantation which my said father has given me by his said will in fee simple, I do entail the said two hundred and fifty acres of land so given to me exactly in the same manner as the other three hundred acres contiguous or adjoining to it, and my will is that it always descend exactly in the same manner as Smith's Island and Moccon Island which are firmly entailed on the heirs male of my body lawfully begotten, by the will of my grandfather, the Honorable John Custis, Esquire. And whereas by my deed of Manumission, recorded in the County Court of York, I have freed and set at liberty my Negro boy christened John, otherwise called Jack, born of the body of my slave Alice. Now, I do hereby ratify and confirm the said deed of Manumission unto the said John, otherwise called Jack, and after the death of the said John, otherwise called Jack, I give all the estate by me heretofore given to the said John, otherwise called Jack, either by deed or otherwise, to my son Daniel Park Custis, to hold to him my said son from and after the death of the said John, otherwise called Jack, his heirs, Executors, Administrators and Assigns. My will and desire is, and I hereby strictly require that as soon as possible after my decease my Executor build on the said land I bought of James Morris, situated near the head of Queens Creek in the County of York, for the use of the said John, otherwise called Jack, a handsome, strong, convenient dwelling house, according to the dimensions I shall direct and a plan thereof, drawn by my said friend John Blair, Esquire, and that it be completely finished within side and without, and when the house is completely finished, it is my will that the same be furnished with one dozen high Russia leather chairs, one dozen low Russia leather chairs, a Russia Leather couch good and strong, three good feather beds (bedsteads and furniture) and two good black walnut tables. I desire that the houses, fencing and other appurtenances belonging to the said plantation be kept in good repair and so delivered to the said Negro John, otherwise called Jack, when he shall arrive to the age of twenty years. I also give him when he shall arrive to that age a good riding horse and two young able working horses. I give to Mrs. Ann Moody, wife of Matthew Moody, if she be living at my death, twenty pounds sterling for which she hath my bond of five hundred pounds to be paid her annually during her natural life. I also give her the picture of my said Negro boy John. It is my will and desire that my said Negro boy John, otherwise called Jack, live with my son until he be twenty years of age and that he be handsomely maintained out of the profits of my estate given him. I give and devise unto John Cavendish, for the many services he has done me, the house and lot where he now lives, to hold the same rent free during his natural life. All the rest, residue and remainder of my estate, real and personal, be it of what nature or kind soever, and wheresoever lying and being in the whole world, I give, devise and bequeath unto my son Daniel Park Custis, to hold to him, his heirs and assigns forever. And lastly, I do hereby constitute and appoint my said son Daniel Park Custis whole and sole Executor of his my last will and testament, hereby revoking and making void all former wills by me made. In witness whereof, I have set my had and affixed my seal to three sides of these two sheets of paper containing this my said will, being paged numbers 1, 2, and 3, this fourteenth day of November, One Thousand seven Hundred and Forty Nine, and in the twenty-third year of the reign of our sovereign Lord King George the Second. -- John Custis - Signed, sealed, published and declared by the said John Custis as and for his last will and testament, in the presence of Thomas Dawson, George Gilmer, John Blair Jr. (NOTE: During the Civil War, the Court Records of James City County were removed to Richmond for protection. That protection was extremely temporary, since they were almost entirely destroyed in the great fire in Richmond at the evacuation in 1865. In 1954, a Booklet was published by William Armstong Crozier, styled, "Williamsburg Wills," listing "Transcriptions from the Original Files at the Chancery Court of Williamsburg," but the will of John Custis was not therein referred to. On July 28, 1965, while in London, Mrs. Nora Miller Turman of Parksley, Virginia, obtained a photocopy of the above-referenced will from Somerset House. Its typing by me is at her suggestion, and I hereby certify it to be correct. Signed: Mark C. Lewis, February 7, 1966.)7,3,8

Probate*9 April 1750John's will was probated on 9 April 1750 at James City Co, VA. At a Court held for James City County April the 9th, 1750, this will was proved by the oaths of Thomas Dawson, George Gilman and George Blair Junr, the witnesses thereto, sworne by Daniel Park Custis, the Executor therein named, and ordered to be recorded and certificate of obtaining a probate in due form was granted the said Executor. Teste: Ben Waller, Cl. Cur..3,8 
Anecdote* Comments by James B. Lynch Jr., author of The Custis Chronicles, regarding Black Jack Custis: Probably the supreme humiliation heaped upon poor Daniel by the terms of his father's will was his appointment as sole executor. One tries to visualize Daniel, Martha (whom he married in the year following his father's death) and Jack living in a sort of ménage a trios at White House on the Pamunkey River (Daniel's chief residence) or possibly even Custis Square. No wonder Martha is believed by at least one source (see Prologue, Part Two) to have discarded spitefully many of her father-in-law's possessions when she "cleaned house" a number of years later at Custis Square. As for Jack, he obligingly died young without keeping Daniel an unseemly length of time from his inheritance. Jack must have been a bright, good-natured and attractive young man to merit such affection and loyalty from John Custis IV. Moreover, he must have charmed not only John but others. That Mrs. Moody, according to the terms of the will, was to receive Jack's portrait implies that the boy had won a place in her heart. Unfortunately, Jack scarcely outlived his master. John Custis' dear friend John Blair inscribed these words in his diary in the following entry: "September 19 (1751). Ab' 1 or 2 in ye morn, Col. Custis' Favorite Boy Jack died in ab' 21 hours illness being taken ill a little before day the 18th with a Pain in the back of his Neck for Wch he was blooded." Jack, whose portrait long ago vanished, is hard to visualize. Apart from his color, he perhaps resembled his father John, whose Christian name he was given by either his master or his mother. Daniel, who according to his father bore a remarkable resemblance not to his father but to grandfather Daniel Park II, probably reminded Custis daily of the cross he had borne ever since the death of he governor of the Leewards in 1711. How often, one wonders, did Custis compare Jack with Daniel and perhaps even with his dead daughter Frances? Although born from the womb of an African slave, Jack was nevertheless the child of his spirit, and the only child who had never proved a disappointment, who had never let him down.9

Anecdote* Comments by James B. Lynch Jr., author of The Custis Chronicles, regarding Black Jack Custis: Probably the supreme humiliation heaped upon poor Daniel by the terms of his father's will was his appointment as sole executor. One tries to visualize Daniel, Martha (whom he married in the year following his father's death) and Jack living in a sort of ménage a trios at White House on the Pamunkey River (Daniel's chief residence) or possibly even Custis Square. No wonder Martha is believed by at least one source (see Prologue, Part Two) to have discarded spitefully many of her father-in-law's possessions when she "cleaned house" a number of years later at Custis Square. As for Jack, he obligingly died young without keeping Daniel an unseemly length of time from his inheritance. Jack must have been a bright, good-natured and attractive young man to merit such affection and loyalty from John Custis IV. Moreover, he must have charmed not only John but others. That Mrs. Moody, according to the terms of the will, was to receive Jack's portrait implies that the boy had won a place in her heart. Unfortunately, Jack scarcely outlived his master. John Custis' dear friend John Blair inscribed these words in his diary in the following entry: "September 19 (1751). Ab' 1 or 2 in ye morn, Col. Custis' Favorite Boy Jack died in ab' 21 hours illness being taken ill a little before day the 18th with a Pain in the back of his Neck for Wch he was blooded." Jack, whose portrait long ago vanished, is hard to visualize. Apart from his color, he perhaps resembled his father John, whose Christian name he was given by either his master or his mother. Daniel, who according to his father bore a remarkable resemblance not to his father but to grandfather Daniel Park II, probably reminded Custis daily of the cross he had borne ever since the death of he governor of the Leewards in 1711. How often, one wonders, did Custis compare Jack with Daniel and perhaps even with his dead daughter Frances? Although born from the womb of an African slave, Jack was nevertheless the child of is spirit, and the only child who had never proved a disappointment, who had never let him down.4
