John Floyd I1

M, b. circa 1640, d. before 28 July 1687
Last Edited21 Apr 2018
Birth*circa 1640John Floyd I was born circa 1640.1 
Anecdote* Note: the surname of Floyd is derived from the Welsh name of Lloyd which in turn came from the Welsh "Llwyd", meaning "grey". The name has been spelled variously as: Floyde, Flude, Flood, Floodd, Flud, Fludd, Fluid, Floid, Floide, Flode, Flod, Floydd and Floyd. The Lloyd progenitors of this family came from Wales. At least one branch settled in Ireland.2 
Headright*30 July 1660He was named as a headright on 30 July 1660 at Northampton Co, VA. It was on this date that a land certificate was granted to John Wilcocks for 1,000 acres for transporting 20 persons into the county. The full list included Ann Wilcocks, Rose Yardly, Mary Avery, Cornelius Johnson, John Custis, Wm Marshall, Robt Marklockson, Henry Yardley, Wm Burton, Arien Ames, John Wilcocks, Wm St. Johns, Mary Barber, Ann Jeanes, Geo. Jenkins, John Floyd, Florence Pomroy, Wm Taylor, John Fereby & Wm Pryer. (NOTE: He was presumably born in Wales, although nothing of his parentage or early life is known.)3,4 
Land bought*1 May 1668He bought land on 1 May 1668 at Northampton Co, VA. It was on this date that John Waterson and his wife Frances assigned 100 aces of tract N37 to John Floyd. In 1687 Floyd left to son John who later died intestate but seems to have been followed by still another John. In 1789 John and Elishe Floyd of Princess Anne County sold to James Floyd. In 1823 a survey of the land of the late Captain James Floyd showed 127 1/2 acres.5,4 
Anecdote1669 John Floyd was appointed constable of N'hamp County by the county court in 1669. His home plantation, the 100 acres acquired by him from Waterson, et. al. in 1668, was located about two miles south of Cheriton in the present N'hamp County on the water on the eastern side of the peninsula just south of the present small village of Oyster.6 
Marriage*circa 1674He married Mary Berry (Berry?) circa 1674 at Northampton Co, VA. According to Brice M. Clagett of Washington, DC, it has been alledged that John Floyd's wife was born Mary Berry and was a daughter of either William Berry or James and Elizabeth Berry. There appears to be no evidence for this and presumably the allegation is based merely on the fact that a son of John & Mary was named Berry Floyd. That fact alone cannot, of course, be regarded as conclusive proof of Mary's maiden name. William Berry, founder of the family of that name in Southern Maryland, was born on the Eastern Shore of Virginia and was a son of James Berry, who first appears there about 1640.1,7 
Land patented*1681John Floyd I patented land in 1681 at Northampton Co, VA. It was in this year that a patent for 2,200 acres was granted to Thomas Hunt, John Floyd, Edmund Bibby and George Clarke. In 187 a new patent was granted to the same partners for a total of 3,350 acres called Hogg Island alias Shooting Beach. The next year the island was formally divided as follows: the south end to mary "Lloyd" on behalf of Charles, Berry and Matthew "Lloyd," the deed for which definitely says "Lloyd," but it was later disposed of by Floyd; to Thomas Hunt, the land north of the Floyds; the part north of him to Elizabeth Clarke on behalf of George and William Clarke; and the north end to Bibby. (NOTE: Brice Claget reports that Lloyd and Floyd are interchangeable in Welsh.) In the allotment of the Floyd part it was stated that it was near Coffin's house; perhaps he was the Thomas Coffin who had taken out a patent for Rogues' Island, and as overseer for the owners of Hog Island, he may have been the first person to live the latter. In 1728 Benjamin and Matthew Floyd sold 100 acres to Thomas Bell. In 1746 Samuel Floyd sold 139 acres to Charles Floyd. In 1747 Matthew Floyd sold 139 acres to Berry Floyd. In 1750 There was a formal division of 595 acres of Floyd land: 139 acres to Samuel Floyd; 278 acres to Matthew Floyd Sr., and 178 acres to Berry Floyd.8 
Land patented1687He patented land in 1687. It was in this year that a Patent was issued to John Floyd for 400 acres called Prout's Island. In the years following, sales for parts of the island were noted, but no effort was made to trace each component part. In 1815 a Patent was issued to H. W. Cobb for 210 acres of Prout's Island. As time went on, storms cut a channel through the upper part of the island and the north part thus cut off became Prout's Island, while the remainder was called Cobb's Island. The former is now entirely gone. During the last quarter of the past century, a substantial hotel was built on the latter island and it became a very popular resort for some years, but erosion became so severe that finally the project had to be abandoned.9 
Will*2 April 1687John made a will on 2 April 1687 at Northampton Co, VA. To my son John my 100 A. plantation whereon I now live, a set of cooper's tools and carpenter's tools. To my sons Charles, Berry, and Mathew all my 1/4 part of Hogg Island to be eq. div. To my dau. Sarah one feather bed. To my dau. Esther one feather bed, but if she dies under 16 then to the rest of her brothers and sister. To my loving wife Mary two feather beds. My sons to be at age at 18 if their mother remarries, else 20, and daus. at 16. To my son John the 1/2 of Prouts Island. To my wife for life the use of 1/3 of my plantation. Wife Mary and my son John extrs. Witt: William Jarvis, William 'TWS' Shepheard, Thomas Hunt.1 
AnecdoteMay 1687 According to Brice Clagget the Floyd quarter of Hog Island amounted to 837 acres, and on the whole John Floyd's descendants obeyed his testamentary command that "my desire is that if any of my three son shall not like to live on their part of Hog Island that they sell to their brothers or brother for the just value and . . . sell it to no other person." In the century and a half that Floyds continued on Hog Island, there were many conveyances among the family and, though there were a few to outsiders, these were made up for by new acquisitions. In 1833, by two deeds, 700 acres of Hog Island were conveyed to Joshua Bloore by Esther, Betsy, James, Sally D., Thomas B., Sally, William, Polly and Susan S. Floyd. Eight years previously Shepherd B. Floyd had deeded 125 acres to Eli Dowty. Thus the Floyd ownership of the Island came to an end (except for 100 acres purchased in 1828 by Matthew Floyd from Charles West); but the family has continued in Northampton County and is still prominent there; being noted in recent years for breeding racehorses. A small settlement of oysterman and fisherman remained on the island until the early 1930's, when a great hurricane drove them away. They never returned, and the island is now totally uninhabited.10

Last Edited21 Apr 2018
Birth*circa 1655Mary Berry (Berry?) was born circa 1655.1 
Marriage*circa 1674She married John Floyd I circa 1674 at Northampton Co, VA. According to Brice M. Clagett of Washington, DC, it has been alledged that John Floyd's wife was born Mary Berry and was a daughter of either William Berry or James and Elizabeth Berry. There appears to be no evidence for this and presumably the allegation is based merely on the fact that a son of John & Mary was named Berry Floyd. That fact alone cannot, of course, be regarded as conclusive proof of Mary's maiden name. William Berry, founder of the family of that name in Southern Maryland, was born on the Eastern Shore of Virginia and was a son of James Berry, who first appears there about 1640.1,2 
Married Namecirca 1674 As of circa 1674,her married name was Floyd. 
Will - Husb's*2 April 1687Mary was named in her husband's will on 2 April 1687 at Northampton Co, VA. She was shown as a wife Mary in the will of John Floyd, wife Mary.1

Birth*1887W. Stratton Nottingham was born in 1887 at Eastville, Northampton Co, VA.1,2 
Anecdote*4 February 1921 4 Feb 1921 (Cape Charles) - Mr. Stratton Nottingham, the popular Commissioner of Accounts, has qualified as Deputy Clerk of the County, vice Aaron Scott, Resigned. Mr. Nottingham is one the most capable clerical men in the County and will carry to his new position, a wealth of experience and adaptability which will serve him in excellent stead in the performace of his duties. Everybody is fond of "Stratt" anyhow and especially so on account of his very accommodating disposition, which by the way is a burden, as well as an asset in the makeup of any one who occupies a County Clerk's office. The fact is that Northamptonians have had enough to spoil them in their Clerk's Office force for many years, and the present head, Mr. Geo. T. Tyson, has long since made good his title as worthy successor to the very best of them.3 
Anecdote*11 November 1927 An article appeared in the 11 Nov 1927 issue of the Eastern Shore News announcing the forthcoming publication by Stratton Notthingham of court records of those from Accomack County who served in the Revolutionary War.4 
Death*30 March 1932He died on 30 March 1932 at King Street, Onancock, Accomack Co, VA. Stratton Nottingham's untimely death at age forty-five robbed Virginia of an indefatigable compiler of genealogical data. Born in 1877 at Eastville in Northampton County on Virginia's Eastern Shore, Nottingham as a young man served as deputy clerk of the Northampton Court. About 1920, he removed to Onancock in the adjoining county of Accomack. There, Nottingham took up the full-time practice of genealogy and, as a byproduct of his professional research, began the publication of numerous genealogical compilations -- marriage bonds, militia rolls, land causes, wills and administrations. His output was prolific. Between 1927 and 1931, he published thirteen volumes of abstracts from the court records of Accomack, Northampton, Lancaster, Mechlenburg, Northumberland and Westmoreland counties. His work has enjoyed an enviable reputation for accuracy and has saved generations of genealogists countless hours of research. Stratton Nottingham surely would have accomplished more had not appendicitis occasioned a fatal attack of pneumonia. Nottingham died at the home of his parents on King Street, Onancock, on March 30, 1932.2 
Burial*W. was buried at Mt. Holly Cemetery, Onancock, Accomack Co, VA. His tombstone shows him as W. Stratton Nottingham, son of Henry R. & Margaret M. Nottingham, 1887-1932.1

Deposition of James Atkinson aged about 18 years: Last summer, while he was working with John Drumond's servants, William Leitchfield found fault with a servant named Anthony Delapar, saying he did not do his work as he should. Delapar retorted with bad language, and Leitchfield struck him. When a servant called Richard Greenall asked Anthony why he did not strike Leitchfield back, Anthony replied, "What? Strike my overseer? That is the way to serve a year for it." When Greenall said that Leitchfield was not Anthony's overseer, "Anthony replied again with a great oath and said that he was." Another time while in the orchard gathering apples, William Litchfield struck Anthony, who had refused to do what he was asked. This time Anthony took Litchfield, who was lame at the time, by the legs and pulled him down, striking him. Anthony called on Atkinson and Richard Grenall several times to come help him, but they did not go. Several time John Drumond had charged Atkinson and the other two servants to "mind our business carefully and do what Wm. Leitchfeild did bid us."

Land inherited*1701John (of Wm) Abdell inherited land in 1701 at tract N96, between Exmore & Nassawadox, Northampton Co, VA. In 1701 Morgan Dowell left his 250-acres balance to William and Thomas Abdell, but if either died, a John Abdell was to be next in line; Thomas seems to have died as John became possessed of a part.5 
Land sold*1713He sold land in 1713 at tract A121, east of Modest Town, Northampton Co, VA. In 1689 Daniel Jenifer alone sold 300 acres to Martha Eyre, the widow of Benjamin; the land was partly above the Scarburgh purchase, being in the little neck formed by the two branches of Hog Neck Creek, but it extended northwest along the Justice land to the back line of the Jenifer acreage. The deed was to Martha for her life and then to her son Reginall Eyre, and in his will of 1709 he signed his name Regnold and left the property to his sisters Elizabeth and Martha. Nothing more was found recorded about the latter, so Elizabeth inherited the whole and she was married twice, first to John Abdill and then to William Stott, both of Northampton. In 1713 John and Elizabeth Abdill sold 160 acres to John Tankard, comprising the part east of the preent road. In 1749 John Tankard (wife Elizabeth) left to his son Stephen. However, the land later was recovered by daughters of Elizabeth (Whitelaw errored by saying they were by a previous marriage as he later stated they were Abdill daughter) and in 1752 Luke and Elizabeth Fortesque and Jeremiah and Rachel Ashby, the wives being Abdill daughters, sold the same land to William Jackson; the next year John and Elizabeth Dickson(sic) deeded their interest to Jackson, Elizabeth having been the daughter of Mary Stott, who also was an Abdill daughter.4 
Land bought*1718He bought land in 1718 at tract A121, Modest Town, Accomack Co, VA. In 1718 Daniel (of St. Thomas) and Elizabeth Jenifer sold 200 acres of this tract to John Abdel; it was north of the above and also extended out to about the present highway, it being the last piece to do so, as the patent map will shown A139 came in between for the rest of the way to the north bounds of the whole tract.6 
Will*18 September 1721John made a will on 18 September 1721 at Northampton Co, VA. To my son Nottingham my 200 A. plantation in Accomack Co. against Rickannas Bridge.
