Stephen Horsey I (Burgess) (Quaker)1

M, b. 1620, d. 8 August 1671
ChartsAncestors of Thomas Hearne Fooks V
Last Edited15 Mar 2015
Birth*1620Stephen was born in 1620 at Isle of Wight, England.1 
Anecdote*1643 As Stephen Horse his name appears in 1643 as a headright to a patent for land granted Obedience Robins, of Northampton Count, Virginia. Horsey settled in Northampton County, on whose records his name frequently appears during the course of the succeeding eighteen years. Prior to December, 1650, Stephen Horsey married Sarah, widow of Michael Williams, deceased, in Northampton County. Stephen Horsey is described as a "cooper" by trade; though the fact that he was a tradesman seemed in no way to affect his exercising a vigorous influence in popular affairs in Northampton County. On March 25, 1652, he signed (with 116 other persons) the "engagement tendered to ye Inhabitants of Northampton County," thereby subscribing a promise "to be true and faithful to the Commonwealth of England as it is now Established without King or House of Lords." This "engagement" was one which the strongly "royalist" Eastern Shore of Virginia was asked to subscribe to upon the surrender of Virginia to the Parliamentary Commissioners on their arrival in that colony in March, 1651/2, after the dethronement and execution of Charles I. The Parliamentary Government in England, which of course extended to the colony of Virginia, "at first found much support in Northampton County, especially among the middle class and tradesmen." However, this favor towards Parliament did not last long, owing to certain hardships which resulted to the tobacco trade from the enforcement of the Navigation Acts. Then, too, "for sometime the belief had been quite general among the inhabitants ... that Northampton County had become a separate province, the conviction being heightened by the failure of the Governor to call for Burgesses. An intense spirit of independence had therefore grown up among the people and nothing in common was felt to exist between Northampton and the Western Shore." The Royalist Party, which had become very strong, took advantage of this situation and bringing its influence to bear "appealed to the people to resist the unjust burdens imposed upon them by the Assembly at James City and to assert their independence of a government in which their sole participation was to defray its expense." There were repeated popular meetings in Northampton and the agitators were successful in their work. As the result of this agitation a committee of six citizens was "selected by vote of the people to draw up a protest against their present condition and to act in all things as the best interests of the people might demand." This committee consisted of Stephen Charlton, Levyne Denwood, John Nuthall, William Whittington, John Ellis and Stephen Horsey. This committee drew up, signed and presented to the Virginia authorities the celebrated "Northampton Protest" of March 30, 1652; a protest in fact against "taxation without representation." Thus it is that we find Stephen Horsey, in 1652, in the very thick of the fight for "popular rights" and esteemed by the people a man worthy of their confidence to represent them in presenting their grievances. In July, 1653, Stephen Horsey appears upon the records as challenging a certain decision of the Northampton Court embodied in an order relative to the reprisal of a ship. In a popular meeting held in "Doctor Hack's old field" Horsey violently assailed the members of the court, calling them "asses and villanes." In this same year, 1653, we find Stephen Horsey returned as a Burgess from Northampton County to the Virginia Assembly with Thomas Johnson and William Mellin as the two other Burgesses from that county. Ten years later Colonel Edmund Scarburgh in a bitter attack on Stephen Horsey, referring to the fact that he had been "once elected a Burgess by ye Comon Crowd & thrown out by ye Assembly for a factious and tumultuous person; A man repugnant to all Govmt." We indeed have Horsey's record as that of an agitator in behalf of the people's rights; we know that he was indeed "one of the people." It is no doubt true that Horsey was prevented from taking the seat in the Assembly to which he had been elected by "the people." But in our appreciation of the man we should not fail to throw into the scale of judgment as we weigh him, the facts that Scarburgh was always contemptuous of the "Comon Crowd" (except when he could bend them to his own will), and that the Virginia Assembly was not particularly lenient towards those who were deemed in opposition to the government. Stephen Horsey was a man who possessed an independent spirit and never once do we find him failing to exercise it. Aggressively independent in matters political, we find that Stephen Horsey was vigorously non-conformist in matters religious. His enemy, Scarburgh, referred to him in 1663 as "of all sects yet professedly none, Constant in nothing but opposing Church Gownt his children at great ages yet unchristened . . ." While this is intended as a biting item of criticism, yet underlying it is evidently the fact that Stephen Horsey was interested in the liberal movements in religion which were prominent at the time, and yet was not content to give his allegiance to any one of them. From his intimate association with the Quakers and the item relative to his children not having been baptized leads one to think that he may have affiliated with these "followers of the Inner Light." Yet there is no evidence to this effect; and Scarburgh's statement that he professed membership in no sect certainly excludes Horsey from membership in "Friends Meeting." Though we cannot "religiously denominate" Stephen Horsey, yet we do find him most intimately associated with the Quakers and we can prove beyond doubt his absolute non-conformity in relation to the Church of England. As early as November, 1658, Stephen Horsey (together with Ambrose Dixon, Levin Denwood, and Captain William Mitchell) was before Northampton Court at the suit of the Reverend Thomas Teackle, rector of Hungar's Parish, for non-payment of minister's and church dues, having been formerly ordered by the vestry to pay them. The court sustained the vestry's order. On January 28, 1661/2, several delinquents in Hungar's Parish in the payment of minister's and other parish dues belonging to the church were brought before the court and "ordered that they make present payment of what shall be due by them from the year 1654, and the following persons, still owing dues to the minister and church in Hungar's Parish, were returned non est inventus, viz: Stephen Horsey, Ambrose Dixon, Alexander Draper, Robert Hart and William Smith. Certainly these items leave no uncertainty in the mind as to Horsey's stalwart non-conformity in relation to the Established Church and of his stout resistance in the matter of meeting the law's demand for his financial support thereof.2 
Appraiser*4 June 1648Stephen was named as an appraiser of an estate on 4 June 1648 at Northampton Co, VA. It was on this date that administration on the esate of Gabriell Sheirle or Searle was granted to Alexander Maddox. Appraisers John Hinman, Stephen Horsey, Christopher Kirke & Nicholas Waddeloe.3 
Marriage*circa 1650He married Sarah (-----) circa 1650. Sarah was relict of Michael Williams of N'hamp Co, VA..4 
Oath to England*30 March 1651Stephen Horsey I (Burgess) (Quaker) took the oath of allegiance to hereby engage and promise to be true and faithful to the Commonwealth of England as it is now established without King or House of Lords on 30 March 1651 at Northampton Co, VA. He was shown as Stephen Horsey.5 
Anecdote*1661 Through the last item quoted from the Northampton Court records we find Horsey's point of departure from Virginia for Maryland. We find that Stephen Horsey was returned non est inventus by the authorities in Northampton County, Virginia, January, 28, 1661/2, and also we find that on February 27, 1660/1, Stephen Horsey entered a survey for 1,000 acres of land on south side Annemessex River on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. In this survey headrights were named as: Stephen Horsey, Sarah Horsey, his wife; Stephen Horsey, Junior, John Horsey, Abigail Horsey, Samuel Horsey and Mary Horsey (who were children of Stephen and Sarah Horsey), Michael Williams, Thomas Williams and Sarah Williams (who were children of Mrs. Sarah Horsey by her first husband, Michael Williams, deceased), John Roche (Roach), Benjamin Summer and Thomas Whitfield. The land for which this survey was entered by Stephen Horsey was patented to him September 3, 1663, by the name of "Coulbourne," the tract containing 650 acres. This plantation consisted of splendid, fertile river side lands and was located on the south side of the great Annemessex River, beginning at the mouth of Coulbourne's Creek and running in a northeasterly direction up the river, 250 poles to the mouth of Ipsewansey Creek. The plantation had this splendid frontage on the river and extended some distance inland to the heads of both Ipsewansey and Coulbourne's Creeks. It was to this location that Stephen Horsey moved with his family when he left Northampton County, Virginia, prior to January, 1661/2. So it was that Stephen Horsey, the rebellious and tumultuous nonconformist of Northampton County, Virginia, came with his family to Maryland and settled on the south side of the Annemessex River on the "Eastern Shore." We cannot give the exact date of his arrival at Annemessex (by which name the settlement in that locality came to be officially designated); but certainly he had left Northampton County by January 28, 1661/2, and we strongly suspect that he had taken up his abode on the Eastern Shore of Maryland sometime during the Autumn of the year 1661. This is as definite as we can be in relation to the time of Horsey's settlement at Annemessex. In the province of Maryland Stephen Horsey found that freedom which his seething non-conformist spirit craved; and becoming, as we believe, the actual first settler of the newly created territorial area of "the Eastern Shore below Choptank River"; his settlement formed the nucleus from which Somerset County developed. It was not long before Horsey was joined here by other men whose non-conformist spirit made them also persona non grata in Northampton County, Virginia. Ambrose Dixon, Thomas Price, Robert Hart, and Alexander Draper, if they did not in fact arrive at Annemessex at the same time that Horsey did, certainly followed him shortly. Almost from the beginning of the Annemessex settlement on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, Stephen Horsey occupied a prominent position. On February 4, 1662/3, he was named a member of the commission of the peace for this area, continuing to hold this office until August, 1666, when that part of the area south of Nanticoke River and extending to the Maryland-Virginia boundary line was erected into the county of Somerset. In the commission of the peace, named in May, 1664, Horsey was named as first, thus given priority and the de facto chief magistracy in the settlement. During the trying times which overtook the Manokin-Annemessex settlement in the Fall of 1663, when Colonel Edmund Scarburgh tried with all his power to reduce the settlers to submission to the Virginia authorities and annex the area to Accomack County in Virginia, Stephen Horsey became a valiant leader in opposition to Scarburgh's scheme and has the honor of having been described by Scarburgh as an "ignorant yet insolent officer . . . that left ye lower parts (i.e. Northampton- Accomack in Virginia) to head Rebellion at Amanessicks (i. e. Annemessex on the Eastern Shore of Maryland)." Horsey's part in opposing Scarburgh's scheme and his accompanying invasion of Manokin-Annemessex, we have fully set forth in the early chapters of this book. When Somerset County was erected, August 22, 1666, Stephen Horsey was named as first in the commission of the peace and he was directed to administer the oath to the other commissioners named "afore they act as Justices for ye County." Horsey was commissioned, and qualified, as first High Sheriff of Somerset County, retaining the office from August, 1666, to June, 1668. He was also a deputy surveyor of the province of Somerset. In 1668 he again became a member of the court, and on June 30, 1668, signed the court orders as "Stephen Horsi, chiefe Judge of ye Court." Stephen Horsey and William Stevens were the first representatives, or burgesses, elected by the people of Somerset County to the General Assembly of Maryland (under writ of February 18, 1668/9), which met April 19, 1669. Owing to the fact that the people of Somerset, after the election, refused to send but one representative to the Assembly the selection went to William Stevens by an unauthorized action of the sheriff. This action of the sheriff later brought him a reprimand from the chancellor of the province and a fine from the Assembly. It appears, however, that Horsey had written to a member of the Assembly that he "was sick & could not attend." Nevertheless, it remains a fact that Stephen Horsey was duly elected to the Lower House of Assembly as a member of Somerset's first representation in that body, and his name was duly returned by order of the chancellor."2 
Will*10 April 1671Stephen made a will on 10 April 1671 at Somerset Co, MD. To 3 youngest sons Samuel, Nathaniel & Isaac tract Coleborne. To children Stephen, John, Samuel Nathaniel, Isaac, Mary, Abigail. To 2 eldest sons Stephen & John Extrs. Mentions Michael Williams, Alexander Draper & Benjamin Sumner. Witt: John Wallop & Henry Powell. His will was probated 2 Feb 1672.6

On 4 Dec 1685 Thomas Welbourne made a deed of gift of one brindled two-year old heifer, by name of Young Venus, with all her increase, to Thomas Wharton, son of Elizabeth and Francis Wharton. According to Lucy Ames Edwards no family relationship had been proven, but it would seem from the above that Thomas Welbourne was making a gift to his nephew..2,1 
Tithable list*1669Francis Wharton Sr. was on the list of tithables at Accomack Co, VA, in 1669. His name continued on the list through the year 1695, when he had 4 tithables.1

Anecdote*1697 According to Lucy Ames Edwards it is possible that Francis Wharton's business took him out of the county, or that late in life he was quite ill for several years. He wrote his will 5 years before his death and 3 years before his death he gave his wife power of attorney to do everything that he might or could do if I were personally present.1

Land bought1668He bought land in 1668 at Accomack Co, VA. It was in this year that William Burton bought 400 acres of Whitelaw's tract A65 from Edmund Scarburgh. It was described as being in a forked neck made by two branches of Nicowampus Creek. He made no reference to a patent date and this acreage is believed to have come from A64 and it was the same land for which John and Matilda West later gave a new deed to Burton. In the original 1659 patent to Littleton Scarburgh, Tabitha Smart & John Alexander for 1,500 acres the land was described as being "on the North and South sides of Little Matomkin Creek including Wattchepreag(sic) on the south and Little Matomkin Towne on the North and including all necks and branches of said Creek." In the patent the land was bounded by the marked trees of Arthur Robins; there is no patent of record to him, but in 1673 he and his wife Barbary Robins sold 1,000 acres to William Burton. That document also failed to give a patent date. It was called the Forked Neck and was bounded on the south "by Nicowwomson, alias Little Matomkin Creek, separating from Edward Revell" (tract A46), and on the north "by Little Matomkin, alias Wachapreague, separating from William Custis" (tract A66). According to that description, the two forks, now Nickawampus and Finney's Creeks, together made what then was called Little Matomkin Creek. In 1696 William Burton (wife Ann, who later married a James Alexander) left his 1,400 acres to 2 sons, the eledest, William, and the 3rd son Thomas. In 1731 William Burton II (wife Mary) left his home place of 800 acres to his son William III, who moved to N'hamp County and at some unknown date sold by a General Court deed to Abel Upshur (of tract A7) and in 1754 he left to his youngest son Caleb Upshur.9

Burton, and gave him several thrusts with the end of his staff, bidding him be gone or else he would break his shins, and forthwith gave him several blows with the said staff upon his legs, insomuch the blood issued through his stockings. Whereupon the said William Burton told the said Capt. Custis he had done amiss; for he had broke both his shins. Whereunto the said Capt. Custis answered, if he would not be gone, he would break his pate, too, and thereupon gave him, the said Wm. Burton, several blows on the head with the said staff and broke his head in two places, so that the blood ran down over the said Wm. Burton's cheeks and back, and then several times punching the said Burton backward. And he endeavoring to keep his ground, they came too close, so that they both fell to the ground together, William Burton getting the upper hand and telling him he had abused him. Whereupon the said Capt. Custis called his Negro to take Wm. Burton off from him. Whereunto Wm. Burton answered he had no need to call the Negro, for he did not intend to meddle with him. Thereupon they both got up and then Capt. Custis punched and struck the said Wm. Burton again, and also came to (How) and beat the cattle he had in his hand and bid him be gone or he would serve him the same sauce." Signed and sworn in open court on 17 June 1682, by John How. Deposition of Griffith Evans aged about 40 years: The deposition of John How was true; Evans, who was present, saw and heard what was declared above. Signed and sworn in open court on 17 June 1682, by Griffith (G) Evan. Capt. William Custis informed the court against Ann, the wife of William Burton, accusing her of contemptuous and defamatory words spoken in relation to his office as justice of the peace. After examining the evidence, the court found that the "words charged were passionately spoken by the said Ann occasioned by aggravation in discourse betwixt them." They were not within the compass of the act invoked by Custis. Ann was acquitted; both parties paid their own court charges. Capt. William Custis, dissatisfied with the above judgment, requested liberty to appeal to the next general court. This was granted with Custis giving security. Deposition of David Griffith aged about 22 years: About 16 January, Ann Burton came to the stable door of Capt. Custis, who was inside. Griffith, in the barn adjoining the stable, saw her come very near the door and ask Custis if her maid had been there to complain. Custis said no, and they started talking. Since he was busy sweeping the barn, Griffith did not hear all they said, but remembered that Custis told her she "was a whore of her tongue." Ann replied that she was "no more a whore of her tongue than he was a rogue of his tongue, and she further said...that for ought she knew, (Custis) and his Negro man upheld her servant maid in her roguery, and (that) the said Custis bid her go and steal a bag of nutmegs and the said Custis bid her send her servant to break open or rob a store." After Griffith had done his work in the barn, he went into the house. Signed and sworn in open court on 17 June 1682, by David (X) Griffith.40

They requested that the surveyor lay out a convenient road so they could have free access to the “waterside for themselves, cattle, goods and other occasions.” The court appointed Peter Parker (surveyor), Mr. Nathaniel Bradford, William Nock, Mr. William Marshall, and William Parker (or any two of them with the surveyor) to see whether Burton and Bagwell had access to the waterside and to give a report to the next court. If there was no passable way, the group was to determine the best route for a road and report that to the next court.41

The court judged him to be 16 years old and ordered him to serve accordingly, but he alleged that he was older.

Ursula named Richard Roberts, another servant of Burton's, as the father. Burton acknowledged himself as security for Roberts' appearance at the next court, at which time Roberts would have to post security and "answer for the same" at the expiration of his term of service. On 15 Nov 1687 Capt. William Custis bound over to this court Richard Roberts and Ursilla Edwards, servants to Mr. William Burton. Ursilla had sworn that Roberts was the father of her bastard child, but he denied it. Ordered that Ursula find security for payment of her fine before the next court or else receive corporal punishment. On 21 Feb 1687/88 Ursula Edwards had sworn that Richard Roberts, recent servant to Mr. William Burton, was the father of her bastard child. On behalf of the parish, Capt. William Custis bound Roberts over to answer the charges. Ordered that the sheriff take Roberts into custody till he gave bond to save the parish from supporting the child. He was also to give bond for good behavior and the payment of court charges. On that same day Ursula Edwards, servant to William Burton had been ordered to find security for payment of her fine for fornication and having a bastard child or otherwise receive corporal punishment. She had not yet found security, so the court ordered that she find security by the next court or be brought to court to receive punishment. On 2 Apr 1688 It appeared to the court (by their confessions) that Xopher Roberts, Ursula Edwards and Mary Hide had stolen several goods from their master, William Burton. Ordered that the sheriff take them into custody and see that Roberts receive 35 lashes on the bare back well laid on; Edwards and Hide were each likewise to be given 20 lashes. On 2 Apr 1688 Ursula Edwards came before the court and admitted taking from her master William Burton several remnants of cloth now in the custody of Edmd. Allen. Richard Roberts received the goods and carried them from her master's house for her. Ursula gave a piece of cloth to her fellow servant Mary Hide to keep her secrets. Signed 21 March 1687/88, Ursula (sideways S) Edwards. Mary Hide heard Ursula say she had "stolen several goods from her master Burton and gave me the said Mary two pieces of linen to keep it secret." Signed Mary (O) Hide. On 3 Apr 1688 Ursula Edwards and Mary Hide, servants to William Burton, had been ordered to receive corporal punishment for stealing goods from their master. Ursula and Mary now promised to behave better in the future and petitioned that they be remitted from their punishment by the payment of a fine. The court ordered that Ursula be fined 200 lbs tobacco and Mary 150 lbs tobacco. Mr. Nicholas Hill agreed to pay the fines and court charges. On the same day Richard Roberts, recent servant to William Burton, had been ordered to receive corporal punishment; he now promised to behave better in the future and petitioned that his punishment might "be redeemed by paying a reasonable fine in tobacco." The court accepted 500 lbs tobacco in lieu of his punishment. Ordered that Roberts find security for his good behavior and payment of the fine. Edmund Allen agreed to be security along with paying the fine and court charges.46

Anecdote20 February 1689/90 On 20 Feb 1689/90 William Burton and Thomas Bagwell sued John Barker for 20,000 lbs tobacco, but Barker failed to appear. Since the sheriff returned Nicholas Millechop, Thomas Powell and John Simkin as bail for Barker's appearance, it was ordered that they "abide the award of the court" if Barker did not appear at the next court.49 
Anecdote19 March 1689/90 On 19 Mar 1689/90 William Burton and Thomas Bagwell brought action against John Barker declaring that they had a plantation and cattle in Sussex County, Pennsylvania in joint tenancy, and that Barker, whom they entrusted with their stock, killed and marked seven head of cattle, converting them to his own use. They wanted 20,000 lbs tobacco in damages. The case went to a jury who awarded 3500 lbs tobacco in damages and the costs of the suit to Burton and Bagwell. The court confirmed the verdict and moved for judgment against Nicholas Millechop, who was bound jointly as Barker's bail with Thomas Powell and John Simkin. Mr. Robt.

Signed and sworn in open court 20 February 1689/90, by Aminidab (M) Hanger. An addition to the above was sworn in open court 20 March 1689/90: The cattle all belonged to Wm. Burton and Thomas Bagwell and were on their plantation in Sussex County, Pennsylvania. On that same day Minidab Hanger petitioned to be paid for attending the court as a witness for Mr. William Burton and Mr. Thomas Bagwell against John Barker. Since Hanger attended two days and spent eight days in coming and going home, it was ordered that he be paid 240 lbs tobacco and court charges by Burton and Bagwell, who won a judgment against Barker's bail, Nicholas Millechop. Also on that same day John Okey petitioned to be paid for attending the court as a witness for Mr. William Burton and Mr. Thomas Bagwell against John Barker. Since Okey attended five days at two different courts and spent 16 days in coming and going home, it was ordered that Okey be paid 520 lbs tobacco and court charges by Burton and Bagwell, who had won a judgment against Barker's bail, Nicholas Millechop.50 
Anecdote18 September 1690 On 18 Sep 1690 upon the motion of Edmund Allin, it was ordered that Mr. William Burton, Mr. William Dennison, Henry Williams and James Walker, Sr., inventory and appraise the estate of Richard Watson, deceased. They were to go to the nearest magistrate to be sworn and were to report at the next court. Later that same day it was noted that William Burton and Thomas Bagwell had been ordered to inventory and appraise the estate of Francis Sacker (deceased), but Bagwell had since died; Mr. Tully Robinson (attorney for Mr. Henry Custis) moved that the inventory be recorded, so the court ordered that William Burton and Mr. William Dennison be sworn at the nearest magistrate, inventory and appraise the estate and report to the next court.51 
Anecdote18 March 1690/91 On 18 Mar 1690/91 it was recorded that Thomas Wilkinson owed William Burton 895 lbs tobacco, 2 shillings 6 pence, 3 ½ yards of thick kersey (ribbed woolen cloth), 7 yards of blue linen and one pair of stockings.

Anecdote17 June 1691 On 17 Jun 1691 William Burton sued Henry Read, claiming that Read "had secretly & covertly trucked and traded with his the said Burton's servant named Lancelot Jacques." Burton desired an order for the penalty imposed by law. The court examined the evidence and found that Jacques' indenture of apprenticeship contained no clause requiring Burton to provide his servant with clothes. The court judged that the things traded between Read and Jacques were not comprised in the law; the suit was dismissed with Burton paying the costs. On 21 Sep 1692 Mr. William Burton, a justice of the peace, complained against Henry Read, for "yesterday in ye court yard" Henry Read publicly uttered "very foul and opprobrious and scandalous language" against Burton. Called to answer, Read admitted his fault, said it was caused by his "being in drink", expressed his sorrow for abusing Burton, and promised better behavior. Ordered that Read be fined for being drunk and that the sheriff take him into custody till he gave a bond for his good behavior and payment of court charges.

Anecdote Per Y-DNA testing of continuous male line descendants, the immigrants William Burton, who married Ann Stratton, and Robert (Spencer) Burton, who married Elizabeth Cotton, are NOT of same bloodline. The immigrant William Burton is of the same bloodline as the Burtons of Longner Hall, in Shroipshire, England. This is documented in "The Burton DNA Project" web page Y-Results Chart. See Haplogroup R1b-Lineage V. Haplogroup R1b-Lineage VII is where you find Bob Burton's (of Perry, GA) Y-DNA results (ID 70031) and those of Clayton Burton (ID 210977), another direct descendant of Robert (Spencer) Burton. Bob descends from son Robert Burton Jr and Clayton descends from son William Burton, who settled in Worcester Co, MD, south of the Indian River, at one time the boundary between Delaware and Maryland. They lived across the river from each other.61
