Anecdote* From a book review - The American family has provided fertile ground for historians and social scientists during the past few decades, but few writers approach the subject the way Kari J. Winter, a professor of American studies, does in her most recent work. Her title seems to indicate her focus will be the life of an individual. But Winter actually takes a detailed look at the evolution and devolution of the entire Prentis clan, sketching an interesting picture of early 19thcentury American family life in all its variety, complexity and contradiction. She begins with the English Prentises, tracing the migration of William Prentis to America and his rise in the business world of Williamsburg, Virginia. He also founded an important family in this important colony, one that Winter follows into its next generation, focusing primarily on John B. Prentis’s father, Judge Joseph Prentis. His activities as a member of Virginia’s upper crust, including his marriage to Margaret Bowdoin and the rearing of their four children who reached adulthood, make up the bulk of her narrative in this early section. It is their younger son, however, the John B. Prentis of the title, who begins to shape the story. He was not like the rest of them. He broke their traditional mold of respectability, dismissed their genteel interests as extraneous, and shunned the careers acceptable to his class. John intended to become his own man, a self-made one if necessary. He persuaded his father to let him blaze a unique path and became apprenticed to a Philadelphia builder/architect. John learned the ropes the hard hands-on way, and after his father’s death returned to Virginia to take up the building trade in Richmond, one of the fastest growing cities in the South. As Winter explores John’s complicated relationships with older brother Joseph and two sisters, she exposes the great sadness that clouded all their lives. None of these people was very happy, despite their privileged upbringing. In John’s case, however, it was not for want of trying, though his efforts too often relied on the false maxim that enough money could buy anything, including joyfulness. He did not like books and found tedious the education that made his brother a successful attorney. Rather, John at first preferred prosperous artisan work and then lucrative business arrangements that promised wealth and status. Ultimately he chose the slave trade as his primary occupation, a decision seemingly incompatible with his earlier anti-slavery sentiments. This sordid business meant a steady income bounteous enough to expand his property holdings and improve his standard of living, but it also soiled him in the estimation of polite Southern society.1

On 18 Aug 1663 in Accomack County Court, Thomas Bunny, who yesterday was ordered to live with Mr. James Fookes for four years, came today requesting his liberty, so if his friends in England sent for him he could go home to them. In view of the danger of such liberty, the court ordered that Bunny return to Dr. Hack, to whom he was committed by Capt. Edward Baker, and to remain there till Christmas. (NOTE: This appears to be the first mention of James Fooks in either Accomack or Northampton County records.)3

Signed 20 February 1664/65, Denis (circle with ") Sullewen. Witnesses: Teage (T) Andrews and Thomas (T) Nerly. Deposition of William Turnor aged about 22 years, 16 October 1666: Turnor, servant to Mr. James Fooke saw Denis Selevant, who was Fooke's overseer at the time, work in Francis Sherwood's corn field. He said that Selevant worked parts of two days as a taylor, ground corn when the tobacco was weedy, planted tobacco at his own house and took time to tend it. Often Turnor and his fellow servants had done a row or two in both corn and tobacco before Selevant came to work; sometimes he did not come till breakfast time. Selevant arranged for him and his fellow servants to work one day for Teage Andrews, who worked half a day in return. When Mrs. Cowdery came to get security for a debt Selevant owed her husband, Selevant was gone four days. Turnor said that sometimes Selevant would work on Saturdays till breakfast time, or till noon, or not at all. About 1000 plants that were cut and lay on the ground for two nights were ruined by the frost. After the tobacco was cured, Teage Andrews came to strike it for Selevant, but Fooke would not allow it. The crop of tobacco filled only eleven hogsheads. Signed, William Turner. Deposition of Mary Lee aged about 21 years, 16 October 1666: Lee, servant to Fookes, said that Selevant, when he was Fookes' overseer, worked for Sherwood; she worked one day with him in Francis Sherwood's corn field. She said Selevant was absent two days, and that several times Selevant employed her at washing from breakfast time till night, and several times at grinding when the tobacco was "in the weeds, worms and suckers." She said that Selevant had a crop at his own house and took several days to tend it, saying his woman would not do it. Selevant would often come late to work and sometimes leave till dinner time. He had them work for one day for Teage Andrews who worked half day in exchange. Selevant was absent two days when he went to Nuswattocks. He left for four days to pay a debt to Mr. Cowdery. On Saturdays Selevant would work sometimes till breakfast, till noon, or not at all. Tobacco lying on the ground two nights was ruined by frost. The crop amounted to 11 hogsheads. Signed, Mary (B) Lee. Deposition of Thomas Norly aged about 24 years, 16 December 1666: Norly was present when Mr. James Fowkes and Denis Selevant made their bargain about the last of February 1664/65. Selevant said his hands were new and that they might get sick; therefore he could not be responsible for damage to the crop beyond his own share. Fookes said, "No, no," he would not desire it. It was agreed that Fookes would not take his hands away from the crop except for grinding corn for bread. Signed, Thomas (T) Norly. Deposition of Teage Andrews aged about 30 years, 16 December 1666: said the same as Thomas Norly. Signed, Teage (T) Andrews.

Anecdote18 March 1666/67 On 18 Mar 1666/67 in Accomack County Court the complaint of William Turner against his master, Mr. James Fookes, was referred to the next court. Turner claimed that his master's son, Thomas Fookes, and Roger Burkum could provide evidence for his complaint, and they were summoned to the next court. On the same date it was noted that James Fookes behaved "contemptuously towards the court in their friendly admonishment towards him" for cruelly beating his servant, Judeth Godfree. Ordered that he be taken into the sheriff's custody till posting security for his good behavior and paying court costs.9 
Anecdote16 July 1667 On 16 Jul 1667 in Accomack County Court, the case between Mr. Nicholas Boot, plaintiff, and Mr. James Fookes was referred to a jury who found for Boot, the defendant not performing his contract. But since no damage was proved, the court advised the jury to amend their verdict, and each paid their respective charges. The verdict was delivered 16 July 1667, by Wm. Custis. On 6 May 1665, Mr. James Fookes agreed to build for Mrs. Ann Hack a sloop to carry 35 hogsheads of tobacco. It was to be built of corbel work with a cabin. Hack was to supply planks and a barrel of tar; Fookes was to find nails, spikes, mast and boom with completion to be by 28 December. Signed by James Fookes, Richard Buckland and William Price. Deposition of Augustine Herman aged about 44 years: About a year ago Herman, who was to be a part owner of the new sloop, was with the widow of Doctor George Hack, Anne, now the wife of Nicholas Boot, at her plantation in Pungoteag. Mr. James Fooks there agreed to build the sloop, and it should have been ready by last October, when Herman expected it up the bay. He urgently needed the sloop and suffered great damage; he had to come down to Accomack when otherwise his concerns would have been brought to him. Fookes had promised to build a sloop to which no man could make objections. Signed 17 May 1667, by Augustine Herman before Charles Scarburgh, John Tilney, Richard Hill and Edw. Revell. Deposition of Wm. Chase, aged about 32 years, 16 July 1667: Chase was sent by Mr. Boot to Mr. Martindale's ship about last February to get for the sloop some rigging, bolts and ropes for the sails. Signed Wm. (O with a dot) Chase. Deposition of Tho. Saywell aged about 30 years: About last September, Ann, the widow of George Van Hack, bought a sail from the ship Daniell of Dublin. He was then one of the ship's company. A few days later the loaded ship departed this port. Signed, Thomas Saywell before Cha. Scarburgh.10 
Anecdote17 December 1667 On 17 Dec 1667 in Accomack County Court, deposition of John Tille aged about 38 years: Said we arrived in the ship Dove, about 23 April 1667, Robert Pitt being master. Pitt used two sloops to bring the tobacco on board, one carried 42 hogsheads and the other 27. These two sloops were continually employed for four months. The weakness of the Dove required Pitt to hire several carpenters; without this work, it would have been impossible for the ship to have made the voyage. Each of the following carpenters was paid 50 lbs tobacco per day: William Wilson for 41 days, James Fookes for 17 days, Thomas Godding for 6 days, and John Keeble for 30 days. Isaac Medcalfe was hired for 40 days at 30 lbs tobacco per day. To provision the ship's company, Pitt bought and took aboard 2850 lbs pork, three barrels of tar and 54 pounds of rope to make main clew garnets. Signed by John Tille on 13 November 1667, before Edm. Scarburgh.11

It appeared to the court to be according to a former agreement, so the court ordered the sale to be made. Whitelaw shows that Henry Smith reassigned 400 acres to James Fookes. It had been originally patented in 1656 by James Price as 300 acres and it was reissued to Price in 1661 as 400 acres. James Price & his wife Susanna assigned to Henry Smith who reassigned to James Fookes. Many years later in a record for adjacent land, this was called Fox's.12,13

Fooks shows this was recorded on 18 Nov 1676 in Acc Co Wills & Deeds, 1676-1690, folio 424, but it was evidently as shown above.)2,15 
Anecdote6 March 1671/72 On 6 Mar 1671/72 in Accomack County Court, the administrators of Col. Scarburgh were ordered to pay James Fookes 735 lbs tobacco (and court costs) for work done on the ship Nicholas of Galloway.16

It varied depending on the number of servants he had at the time.18,19 
Anecdote11 November 1674 On 11 Nov 1674 in Accomack County Court Jno.

Anecdote16 July 1675 On 16 July 1675 in Accomack County Court, the servants of Mr. James Fowks complained that he had "much beaten Robt. Dunbar beyond the merit of his offence" and had not allowed them sufficient provisions.

Web aged about 40 years: Overseer for James Fowks' servants, Web heard Fowks threaten a servant named Robt. Donbar, charging him with all the misdemeanors of the other servants.

West bought a sloop from James Fowkes. Before the bargain Mary heard West say that the sloop was much damaged by worms. Fowkes answered that not only was it worm eaten, but two or three planks were very swollen and must be replaced. Fowkes said it was easily done, and that he would do the work for 500 lbs tobacco. On these terms, West agreed to pay 95 pounds sterling for the sloop. Signed 8 July 1675, Mary Scarburgh. Deposition of Robt. Watson aged about 51 years: In January or February of 1672, Watson was present when Major Jno. West bought Fowks' sloop. Before the bargain West told Fowks that the sloop was damaged by worms; Fowks said not only that, but two or three "weavy" planks must be replaced, which would be easily done.

Anecdote27 March 1684 On 27 Mar 1684 in Accomack County Court Mr. James Fookes exhibited his account of expenses against his runaway servant named William Rawlins along with a certificate signed by Maj. Charles Scarburgh. The court, wanting to do "all due right as well to the said servant as the said master," examined the amounts spent in the recovery of the servant. The account which amounted to 2355 lbs tobacco was read in the presence of Rawlins, who was allowed to make objections; he admitted the articles. It was judged that William Rawlins should serve Fookes for two years from the date of this order, with Fookes finding him adequate clothing and Rawlins paying court charges. After Fookes had absented himself, Rawlins alleged that he could produce evidence in his own defense. Ordered that Rawlins have liberty till the next court to make his defense, that he give security to answer damages, and that he give his master notice to appear at the next court.28 
Jury duty11 February 1684/85He served on a jury on 11 February 1684/85 at Accomack Co, VA. He was shown as Mr. James Foakes.29 
Land deeded from*1686He deeded land in 1686 at tract A56, south side Matchatank Creek, Acc Co, VA. Fookes had sold his 400 acres, but given no deed, to William Willson, who died in 1683, leaving his purchase to Naomy Anderson, and 3 years later in 1686, James Fooks gave her a formal deed for the property. It was at the mouth of Matchtank Creek on the south side, and the waterway below which extends north into this tract and south into tract A55 was called Long Gut in early times, but on modern maps it now is Tarkill Creek. Naomi married Francis Makemie and this must have been their first home. According to Herbert C. Fooks the deed read as follows: I, James Fowkes of Accomac County, in the Coloney of Va. marriner, sell to William Willison, 400 acres of land lying on the south side Matchabranch(sic) Creek, in consideratoin of twenty thousand pounds (20,000) of tobacco and caske. The said land was formerly granted to James Price by Patent, 12th January 1661, and by him assigned to Henry Smith and the said Henry Smith sold and assigned to me. Signed: James Fookes.12,2 
Anecdote2 February 1685/86 On 2 Feb 1685/86 in Accomack County Court John Washbourne was granted a judgment of 348 lbs tobacco against Mr. James Fookes, who was also to pay the costs of the suit.30 
Anecdote10 March 1685/86 On 10 Mar 1685/86 in Accomack County Court, the suit of Mr. James Fookes against Mr. William Anderson was dismissed, there being no cause of action. A nonsuit was granted against Fookes with court costs.31 
Anecdote12 January 1686/87 On 12 Jan 1686/87 in Accomack County Court Maj. Charles Scarburgh informed the court that William Rawlins concealed himself as a tithable; when the list was to be submitted, he was a servant to Mr. James Fooks. Since Rawlins was not in court to answer the charges, the court ordered that if he failed to make his defense at the next court, judgment would be confirmed against him.32 
Death*before 18 September 1688He died before 18 September 1688 at Accomack Co, VA. On 18 Sep 1688 in Accomack County Court William Rawlins sued James Fooke, who could not be found by the sheriff. Now Cha. Holden appeared to answer, but Rawlins failed to appear. The suit was dismissed. (NOTE: He may have been dec'd by this time as he never appeared again in court.) On 24 Nov 1688 Willian Rawlins sued James Fooks, whom the sheriff could not find. Fooks' attorney (Charles Holden) appeared, bailed attachment and requested that the case be referred to the next court, which was granted. On 19 Dec 1688 in Accomack County Court William Rawlins sued Mr. James Fookes, who was not found by the sheriff. Charles Holden, on behalf of Fookes, had appeared at the last court, bailed attachment and requested that the case be deferred. Now the court found no cause for action and dismissed the suit. At Holden's request a nonsuit was granted against Rawlins with court costs.33 
Anecdote19 June 1689 On 19 Jun 1689 in Accomack County Court Mr. Samuel Sandford sued James Fooks, whom the sheriff could not find. Mr. Charles Holden, who appeared on behalf of Fooks, was granted his request that the case be referred to the next court. On 17 Sep 1689 in Accomack County Court Mr. Samuel Sandford (attorney: Mr. Robinson) sued Mr. James Fooks, whom the sheriff could not find. Upon the petition of Sandford, it was ordered that attachment for 6 lbs 16 shillings 6 pence and court costs issue against the estate of Fooks. (NOTE: This was the first time his estate was mentioned, so he was definitely dec'd by this date.) On 19 Nov 1689 Mr. Samuel Sandford had procured an attachment of 6 pounds 16 shillings 6 pence against the estate of Mr. James Fooks. Sandford's attorney, Mr. Tully Robinson, informed the court that because of Sandford's absence across the bay, the attachment was not served--the sheriff required Sandford's bond before serving it. Ordered that the case be continued to the next court. On 17 Dec 1689 Mr. Samuel Sandford had procured an attachment of 6 pounds 16 shillings 6 pence against the estate of Mr. James Fooks. Now the sheriff returned the attachment served on several creatures that Sandford alleged were part of the estate. The two cattle and three horses, variously marked, were "too wild to be got into a pen. Sandford swore that it was at the request of James Fooks that he had paid the money to the commissioners "for the clearing (of) the ship Phoenix, of which Fooks was the commander and owner." Ordered that execution proceed to satisfy the debt and the costs of the suit. (Side note: execution was served upon the creatures belonging to Fooks' estate, signed Wm. Marshall, subsheriff.)34
