Anecdote*1825 There were only 2 Buntings in Somerset Co, MD in the 1860 census and they were fairly close together in the Dublin District. They were Levin T. age 25 (probably age 15) & William J. age 33. The assumption is that they were brothers and their father was dec'd. However, there are no Bunting wills of this time period in either Somerset or Worcester Co, MD. There are many Bunting wills in Accomack Co, VA but none of them show a Levin T. or a William J. Bunting.

Land bought*3 March 1662/63He bought land on 3 March 1662/63 at tract N57, Bridgetown, Northampton Co, VA. Whitelaw's summary of the 4 pages from the ledger book was that John Vines obtained a patent for 300 aces of this tract in 1661 and 2 years later he and his wife Bridget sold to John Custis and he resold to John Coale, who in turn resold to Thomas Dunton. In 1661 it was ordered that court was to be kept "at John Vines as formerly." If and when the meetings were held with him it would have been on this tract and presumably at the site of the present Bridgetown. This also would account for the interest of John Cole in the property as he was an ordinary-keeper who followed court migrations for years until he finally wound up "at Metomkin," the present Accomac.17,18

Upon another time your deponent went with her husband & John Cole to Wm Satchell's house again and the said John Cole demanded the above said things, and then Anne Beadle and her daughter Mary Beadle both of them denied they ever had any things of the said Coles, only three ells of fine Holland, that they delivered them again. Then the said Cole went out of the house and called the woman servant before them to justify the same so they having all many words the said Cole said he never gave any thing to her but upon the account she was sure to him. Then Mary Beadle replied to the said Cole that if she had thought he gave them to her upon the intent that she would never received them of the said Cole; whereupon Wm Satchell hearing Mary Beadle confess that she received the same things said hastily to her hold you tongue you Jade, and get you of the house to work.22

Land bought1672He bought land in 1672 at tract A26, south of Pungoteague, Accomack Co, VA. It was in this year that Thomas & Jane Jacob sold the north 300 acres of this tract to John Coale. Evidently this land was part of another patent was lost to the Andrews family.44

Land bought1673He bought land in 1673 at tract A36A, Pungoteague, Accomack Co, VA. On 8 Feb 1673 the Accomack Court began meeting at the tavern of Ambrose White, who apparently had taken over the operation of the former Fowkes premises to maintain the lucrative court business. In August the daughters of Nicholas Waddilow and their husbands, Comfort and Ambrose White, Temperance and Robert Mason, and Paitence and William Nock, sold 700 acres to "John Coale, In-holder," the deed stating that it had been the 700 acres first patented to John Robins, who had sold to Waddilow. On 16 Oct the court began meeting at the tavern of John Cole, which was the same old site under a new name. Tract A36A is given as a probable site for the true Cole's Tavern. The actual site is uncertain. It could have been on the other side of the road, immediately across the branch from the location of the church of a few years later, but that is very low land and the chances are that the higher land of the site indicated would have been that chosen by Thomas Fowkes. On 18 Jan 1677/78 Ambrose White received 40,000 lbs tobacco from John Cole for the sale of a 700 acre plantation (once owned by Nicholas Waddeloe) at Pungoteag. Signed 18 January 1677/78, Amb. White.47,48

(NOTE: Various depostions in this matter are recorded on the next 10 pages of the Court records, without mention of John Cole. This shipment of rum came on the Ketch Providence of Boston, and the master was Timothy Prout Junior.)49 
Court - defendant28 April 1673He was a defendant in a court case on 28 April 1673 at Town Fields, Secretary's Land, Northampton Co, VA. John Coale was presented by the Grand Jury for bringing drink to his house in the Town Fields & drawing it into small caske on the Sabbath Day. Whitelaw states that whether because of this or whether he sensed greater opportunities elsewhere, he moved to Accomack County later in the year and there kept a tavern at two different sites where court was held, and eventually he was directly responsible for the court settling finally at the site of the present town of Accomac. By 1677 the substantial town proposed in the 1662 Act had not materialized and the heavy population in the upper part of Northampton County demanded a more centrally located seat of government, so by vote of the inhabitants the Towns Fields site was abandoned and a new town established in the vicinity of the present Eastville.50,51 
Jury duty30 June 1673He served on a jury on 30 June 1673 at Northampton Co, VA. He was shown as John Coale.52

It is therefore ordered that the sheriff vest Mr. Tankard, attorney for Charles Holden, who is the attorney for Powell, with the mare for the use of the said child as aforesaid & the said Powell pay costs of the suit.53 
Court - named in ord9 January 1673/74He was named in a court order on 9 January 1673/74 at Accomack Co, VA. It appeared to the court that Jno. Coale, tavern keeper, had allowed rude and disorderly actions in his house by selling drink on "the feast day of the nativity of our Lord." Ordered that he be fined 20 shillings or make a new pair of stocks and have them at the court house by the next court and pay court charges.54 
Anecdote17 July 1674 On 17 July 1674 in Accomack Court Jno. Barnes agreed to build within a hundred feet of the court house "a prison house fifteen foot long and ten foot wide with an upright chimney and lofted with sufficient plates, studs and groundsills." The court was to find nails and pay Barnes 800 lbs tobacco; John Coale provided timber and the ground. This was to be finished "against the next court"; at the last court the sheriff had complained about the absence of a jail. Whitelaw adds that up to this time there had been no prison in the county, the sheriff being personally responsible for his prisoners, and usually had had the doubtful (though perhaps lucrative) pleasure of maintaining them in some part of his own house or outbuildings.48,55 
Deed of Gift - Gave*2 February 1674/75He gave by deed of gift on 2 February 1674/75 at Northampton Co, VA.

Anderson, John Drumond, Thomas Bonwell. Acknowledged in open court 16 December 1691.1,66 
Court - named in ord19 June 1677He was named in a court order on 19 June 1677 at Accomack Co, VA. An act of the assembly in March left it to each county court to set prices for inn keepers. Therefore the court "set and appointed Jno. Cole a certain price whereby to buy his liquors": Brandy: 80 lbs per gallon; Spanish Wines: 100 lbs per gallon; French and Portugal wines: 80 lbs per gallon; Rum: 60 per gallon; Any drink with sugar: an additional 10 lbs per gallon. Cole was to add a pound of sugar to the gallon if the customer desired it.67 
Court - named in ord21 November 1677He was named in a court order on 21 November 1677 at Accomack Co, VA. Jno. Cole declared that an orphan boy named John Baker, who was born on the other side of the Bay, was idle with no settled residence and had a sore leg. Cole presented Jno. Baker to the court and requested that Baker might be put to work. With Baker's consent, it was ordered that Cole care for Baker, who was to serve Cole for three years. Cole was to "use his utmost endeavor" to cure the lame leg as soon as possible and provide sufficient food, drink, clothing and shelter. At the expiration of the term, Baker was to have corn and clothes according to the custom. Cole paid court charges.68 
Court - named in ord23 November 1677He was named in a court order on 23 November 1677 at Accomack Co, VA. Margret Rickman, presented by the church wardens for fornication and bastard bearing, swore that Alexander Dun was the father. Her master John Cole agreed to post security for the payment of her fine and to save the parish from supporting the child. Ordered that Cole pay the sum and court charges.69 
Land bought1677He bought land in 1677 at tract A91, Freeman's Plantation, Accomack Co, VA. It was in this year that William & Elizabeth Freeman and Richard & Sarah Williams sold this whole tract of 690 acres to John Cole, and for some time it generally was called Freeman's Plantation. This was the site that Cole offered to the Accomack Courty Court for a new courthouse. The question suggests itself whether Cole was the actual instigator of the move, or was supported by some of the influential settlers in the upper section of the county. After the court finally settled down to regular meetings here, the vicinity became known as "at Matomkin," then "at the Courthouse," until the town of Drummond was established here in 1786. It later became known as Drummondtown, but in 1893 the Post Office Department, for reasons of its own, changed its name to Accomac without the final "k," to cause endless confusion, since the county's name is often spelled that way incorrectly. John Cole deserves a place in the hall of fame for the Shore, so a few remarks about him should be appropriate. The date of his coming to the shore was not discovered, but in 1657 Charles Scarburgh (A23), apparently about to take a voyage, set John Cole from from service, in case Scarburgh should not return within 12 months. In 1663 John Cole and Mary Beedle recorded a marriage agreement. In 1672 he operated a tavern at Town Fields (N39A) where he Northampton Court was then sitting. Later in that year he bought 300 acres, part of A26; presumably it was his intention to operate an ordinary or tavern there to cater to the needs of those attending the Accomack Court, but that project did not materialize, and the next year he bought 700 acres of A36, where at site A36A he accommodated those who had business with the court, until he moved here. Besides what is told later about him in this story, he also owned a part of A70.70 
Court - statement in20 December 1677He's statement was recorded in court records on 20 December 1677 at Accomack Co, VA. John Cole reminded the gentlemen of Accomack County that since he came to Pungoteage, he had given the county "free liberty to keep court at my house without charging the county." Now the court was to be moved to some other place voted by the people; Cole had purchased William Freeman's plantation (tract A91), which he felt was a convenient place to build a courthouse. If that place was "picked upon the major votes of the people for a courthouse to be there built, I have thirty thousand bricks, the making and burning of them due to me from James Ewell, which labor of his I will give towards the building of the said courthouse, and also what timber is convenient on the land I will also give as much as will build the said house. And further, I will fit a house up that is on the said land for the county's use to keep court in for the present whilst the county is a building there the aforesaid courthouse, and in the interim, I will be a building housing for the accommodation of those that have occasion, and if concluded by the people, as I have above mentioned, I am very willing to perform as I have aforesaid promised." Signed 17 December 1677, John Cole. Presented to the court 20 December 1677.

Land bought28 February 1678He bought land on 28 February 1678 at tract A35A, Pungoteague, Accomack Co, VA. William Stevens and Henry & Joan Read sold their half of this tract as 400 acres to John Cole, but a month and a half later, on 16 April, John and Mary Cole resold to Phillip Alexander Lecatt and John Lecatt Jr. Tract A35B traditionally is called Cole's Tavern, but Pungoteague Tavern would be a more appropriate name. The old building was burned about the end of the 19th century. Earlier historians that that the first courts for Accomack County were held here at the tavern of John Cole, but later research reveals that for the first few months in 1663 the meetings were held at the home of Anthony Hoskins (A38A), and then at the home or tavern of Thomas Fowkes (A36A), which later became the tavern of John Cole. Cole owned this site for a month and a half, but never in the records was the building called Cole's Tavern, and it must have been given that name years ago by some one who thought his tavern, where courts were held for some years, was here instead of at A36A.73

Richard Johnson answered that he wished the fat that was upon the guts were at his home, for it would serve him to eat with hominy all the year." Immediately afterward, Elizabeth went to the house and did not see what became of the guts; however, the feet and ears were in the house for three of four days afterwards. Mary, the wife of Cole, then said, "'Come, Betty, let's put these feet and ears out of the way for fear your master should see them.' Then I took a bucket on my head and went with my mistress to the branch, and we kneeled upon an old tree, and what ears I thrust into the ground were cropped on both ears and hole in the left." Alexander Dun said that they were Maj. Bowman's hogs. Signed and sworn in open court 17 December 1681, by Elizabeth (sideways S) Terrey. Deposition of Wm.

Johnson, Jr.: About three years ago, John Cole ordered Johnson, John Pettijohn and Allexander Dunn to kill five hogs that belonged to Cole.

After Pettijohn and Dun had singed the hogs, and the sow's guts were thrown away, Johnson said, "I wish I had the said hog's guts at home. The fat and offal would serve me to fry with hominy all the winter." Johnson stayed all night, and at Mary's request stayed till Monday to butcher the hogs. Mary Cole ordered that one of the hog's cheeks be boiled, and after they had eaten their breakfast, she ordered Johnson and Dunn to take one of the hogs to Messango. In carrying it away, "our horses being weak, and the hog's head swaying I and the rest could carry it no further than the church, and so carried it back again and I desired the said Mary Cole to keep the head until I came down again." Later when he asked Mary for the head, she said she had "spent it." Signed and sworn in open court 18 February 1681/82, by Richd. Johnson, Jr.100

According to the bargain, his brother had already been paid and had set up about 50 or 60 of the panels, leaving the rest unfinished. Francis Johnson's attorney pleaded the "general issue" and put Cole "upon the proof of his assumption." Cole produced several witnesses; after examining them, the court judged that they were sufficient and ordered Francis Johnson to return to his work and not leave till he had finished the remainder of the posts and rails for his brother. He was also to pay the costs of the suit. Statement of Walter Harges: Sometime during last December, Francis Johnson, mulatto, said that he had agreed with his brother Richard Johnson and undertook to set up and finish the post and rail fence that Richard had started for Mr. John Cole.

Francis was then to have a gun, "which he did much value." After that Francis worked several days on the fence. Signed and sworn in open court 19 March 1688/89, by Wm. Anderson.

Mr. Henry Custis informed the court as much "for the King and Queen as for himself" that about last 19 September, while Mr. Nicholas Hill was still undersheriff, he impaneled John Cole as a juryman in an inquest of land at John Pettejohn's house. This was contrary to law, since Cole, "the jailer or warden of the prison", was one of the sheriff's officers. Custis requested that Hill forfeit 40 pounds sterling - half to the King and Queen and half to the informer. The court had the law read, considered the information and ordered that the sheriff take Hill into custody till he gave bond for his appearance at the next court, where he was to answer the charges brought by Custis.133 
Land deed named in*17 February 1690/91He was named in a deed on 17 February 1690/91 at Ye Folly, Matomkin, Accomack Co, VA. Deed: John West, gentleman, gave notice that John Cole, innholder, "did by his deed acknowledge" 500 acres on Matomkin to West. Mr. Richard Bayly had sold Cole the land, which was part of the plantation called "Ye Folly"; Mrs. Cole was currently living there. "For the better support of the said John Cole's wife and children", West released the land to John Cole, who was obligated to "make a firm deed of the said land to his wife and to all his sons for their future livelihood and acknowledged the same in court." Signed 10 February 1690/91, by John West and acknowledged by him in open court on 17 February 1690/91. John Cole had formerly purchased from Mr. Richard Bayly a 500 acre tract of land at Great Matomkin. Bounded by John Bagwell, John Dye, Lt. Col. John West and a fork of Great Matomkin Creek, the land was part of 2150 acres granted in 1672 to Ambrose White (deceased). For the future benefit of his wife Mary and children, John Cole assigned the land to her (unless she were to remarry after his death). She was to pay the taxes till the children came of age, at which time each would receive the acreage specified by Cole: William (150 acres), Robert (125 acres), Richard (125 acres) and John (125 acres). If any of the sons should die, his inheritance would go to the child Mary was expecting, if it were male. Cole reserved the right to use the pasture and timber for the good of his other plantation named "Freeman's Plantation." Cole entrusted part of his personal estate to Mr. John Washbourne and Mr. William Parker for the use of Cole's wife Mary--things like a feather bed, iron kettles, sheep, spinning wheel, a new "square-turned table" and cattle. Acknowledged in open court 16 February 1690/91, by John Cole. Witnesses: Cha. Leatherbury and Tully Robinson.134 
Deed of Gift - Gave16 June 1691He gave by deed of gift on 16 June 1691. Deed: John Cole, who had purchased 345 acres at Great Matomkin from Richard Williams (cooper), later sold Tho. Middleton 150 acres of it that adjoined the old main horse road, the branch near the Court House, and a branch formerly called Die's Brig. Because of the marriage of Cole's daughter Frances and John Doe, Cole now named his son Robert Cole and his neighbor Walter Hargis trustees of the land for the benefit of Cole's daughter Frances Doe. She was to be immediately possessed of 100 acres adjoining the main road and the land of William Bunting; it had been lately surveyed by Capt. John Wallup. If Frances were to die without issue, the land would revert to John Cole, Sr., or his son William Cole. Signed 1 November 1690, by John Cole. Witnesses: Geo. Charnock and Wm. Yeo. Whitelaw shows that John Cole executed a trust deed for 195 acres, being the balance of the half of the patent he had retained; the land was to be held in trust during the life of his daughter Frances Doe (husband John) and then it was to go to her heirs. Disposition of it did not appear in the records until 70 years later. In 1705 the following local order probably concerned this land: Whereas Capt. Henry Custis this day informed this Court that there is a certain tract of Queen's land not taken up near the courthouse of this county of about 150 or 200 acres and the county and parish having occasion for land for sundry uses have ordered that Col. Tully Robinson be appointed trustee to inspect into the same and that he enter the said land and cause the same to be surveyed and patented for the use of the county for all such charges he shall be at for confirming the said land for the use aforesaid. Nothing more appeared on the subject so the Doe family must have proved that the land had not escheated. In 1758 Josiah Lewis claimed all of the Cole half of the patent, including the 150 acres he had bought Elizabeth Doe, daughter of Frances, perhaps by General Court deed.135 
Court - named in ord17 June 1691He was named in a court order on 17 June 1691 at Accomack Co, VA. The high road commonly called Gargaphia Road between John Cole's to the road going down to Maj. Scarburgh's had been neglected and was "at present very foul" because neither the Bay Side nor the Sea Side surveyors thought it was within their precincts. Accordingly, the court ordered that John Fenn be surveyor to clear that road from Cole's to a chestnut stump on the way down to Scarburgh's along with all the other roads between William Burton's Branch up in the woods along the White Marsh to and including Henry Lurton's. It was further ordered that all tithables within these bounds up in the woods help the surveyor clear the roadway.136

Whitelaw adds that 3 months later, a higher authority ruled otherwise: Upon consideration of the Report of the Committee concerning the proposition of Accomack County for the continueance of their courthouse where now it is complaining that the same is endeavoured to be removed; resolved that the courthouse for Accomack County ought to be continued, held and kept at Freemans Plantation now in the possession of John Cole called Matomkin as formerly it hath been accustomed until a legal determination to the contrary.

At the time Baggale was operating a tavern in Onancock Town, and the day after the sale the two men entered into an agreement to operate the two taverns jointly. It was a long document, covering every possilbe contingency; it is too long to be reported here in full, but it is a typcial legal paper of the times and makes interesting reading. In 1697 after the court became permanently establishe here at Accomac, the Onancock tavern doubtless was discontinued as unprofitable, and Cole and Baggale terminated their contract, the latter continuing in business here, as he owned the part of the land on which the tavern stood.143

Richard Cole

M, b. circa 1673
FatherJohn Cole I (innholder)1 b. 1635, d. b 31 Jan 1699/0
MotherMary Beedle1 b. 1649
Last Edited6 Jan 2014
Birth*circa 1673Richard Cole was born circa 1673 at Northampton Co, VA.2,3,4 
Deed of Trust named*1685He was named in deed of trust in 1685 at tract A70, east of Tasley, Acc Co, VA. It was in this year that John Cole gave a mortgage to John West on his part of this tract, who in 1691 gave him a release, calling it "the same plantation called the Folly where Mary Cole (wife of John) liveth. This was another of the seveal Folly plantations mentioned in the story of A69. The deed also stated that the transfer was "for the better support of the said John Cole's wife and children," and to carry out the object Cole placed the property in trust for Mary for her life and then it was to go to their children, according to the following disposition: 150 acres to William, 125 acres each to Robert and Richard, and 100 acres to John.1 
Deed of Gift - Rec'd*16 February 1690/91He received by deed of gift on 16 February 1690/91 at Ye Folly, Matomkin, Accomack Co, VA. Deed: John West, gentleman, gave notice that John Cole, innholder, "did by his deed acknowledge" 500 acres on Matomkin to West. Mr. Richard Bayly had sold Cole the land, which was part of the plantation called "Ye Folly"; Mrs. Cole was currently living there. "For the better support of the said John Cole's wife and children", West released the land to John Cole, who was obligated to "make a firm deed of the said land to his wife and to all his sons for their future livelihood and acknowledged the same in court." Signed 10 February 1690/91, by John West and acknowledged by him in open court on 17 February 1690/91. John Cole had formerly purchased from Mr. Richard Bayly a 500 acre tract of land at Great Matomkin. Bounded by John Bagwell, John Dye, Lt. Col. John West and a fork of Great Matomkin Creek, the land was part of 2150 acres granted in 1672 to Ambrose White (deceased). For the future benefit of his wife Mary and children, John Cole assigned the land to her (unless she were to remarry after his death). She was to pay the taxes till the children came of age, at which time each would receive the acreage specified by Cole: William (150 acres), Robert (125 acres), Richard (125 acres) and John (125 acres). If any of the sons should die, his inheritance would go to the child Mary was expecting, if it were male. Cole reserved the right to use the pasture and timber for the good of his other plantation named "Freeman's Plantation." Cole entrusted part of his personal estate to Mr. John Washbourne and Mr. William Parker for the use of Cole's wife Mary--things like a feather bed, iron kettles, sheep, spinning wheel, a new "square-turned table" and cattle. Acknowledged in open court 16 February 1690/91, by John Cole. Witnesses: Cha. Leatherbury and Tully Robinson.5 
Deed of Gift - Rec'd15 September 1691He received by deed of gift on 15 September 1691 at Accomack Co, VA. William Yeo gave a cow and calf to Richard Cole and John Cole, twin sons of John Cole. When they came of age, the cow and her increase were to be divided equally. If the twins were to die, the cattle would be divided between their other brother Wm. Cole, their sister Angellica Cole and their mother. If the mother died before they came of age, then their brother Robert Cole should look after the cattle. Signed 20 September 1691, by Wm. Yeo.4 
Court - defendant*5 February 1707/8He was a defendant in a court case on 5 February 1707/8 at Accomack Co, VA. John Cole, to whom Col. Wm. Custis had granted an attachment against the estate of Richard Cole, posted a bond of 4000 lb tobacco to "save ye said Col. Custis harmless for granting ye said attachment and to pay all damages that may accrue." Richard had "concealed himself or removed out of this country, whereby ye ordinary proceedings at law cannot be had against him." The sheriff served the attachment on Richard's estate in the hands of Charles Lemote (3 barrels of Indian corn), Jno. France (500 lbs tobacco) and Henry Jackson (one barrel and two bushels of Indian corn). When Jno. Cole proved a debt of 2000 lbs tobacco, the court ordered that judgment be entered against Richard Cole's estate for the debt and costs of the suit. Lemote, France and Jackson were to deliver the corn and tobacco in their custody to John Cole. On the same date Joan Dawly, to whom Col. Wm. Custis had granted an attachment against the estate of Richard Cole, posted a bond of 500 lbs tobacco to indemnify Custis for granting the attachment. The sheriff served the attachment on Cole's estate in the hands of George Parker (240 lbs tobacco) and Robert Cole (a weaver's loom and two sets of gears). By the oaths of Michael and William Clarke, Joane Dawly proved that she was due 250 lbs tobacco for half of three month's work done by her son Michael Clark. Ordered that judgment for the debt and court costs be entered against the estate. Parker was to pay Joan the tobacco in his hands; the loom was to be appraised and complete the debt. Any surplus was to remain in the hands of the sheriff.6 
Jury duty*5 August 1712He served on a jury on 5 August 1712 at Accomack Co, VA.7 
Land sold*1739He sold land in 1739 at tract A70, east of Tasley, Acc Co, VA. No definite record of the disposition of the Richard & John Cole parts of this tract has been noted. A court entry apparently referring to one of them was found, but it was impossible to tell which was involved, and the other part could not be identified with any land recorded as sold. In 1753 Henry and Sarah White sold 100 acres where he was then living to Edmund Allen; the deed said it was part of the 125 acres he had bought in 1739. This seems to associate it with the 125 acres of Robert Cole land which White acquired at the same time; perhaps this piece was the Richard Cole part, but who sold it to White was not discovered.1

In 1663 whereas William Smith, Guardian of Richard Hinman, was arrested to the Court at the suit of Mr. Levin Denwood concerning a parcel of land belonging to the said Hinman, and claimed by the said Denwood, the Court examining the title of the land land, find the said Denwood formerly sold the land to one Coale. Its therefore ordered that the said Denwood be nonsuited and pay Court charges.

(NOTE: Evidently, since a deed was not recorded when Denwood gave the land to William Cole, Denwood was still paying the taxes (the King’s Rent) on the land. It may have been that William Cole did not press Denwood on this, to avoid paying taxes and he may have not paid Denwood anything for the land in the begining, as he was ‘seating’ the land for Denwood and got to live there for free.)7

It is therefore ordered that the said John Wiltshire receive upon his naked shoulders 39 lashes well laid on and be committed into the sheriff's custody until he put in sufficient security for his good behavior & pay court costs.1

Court - named in ord*4 September 1722He was named in a court order on 4 September 1722 at Accomack Co, VA. Johnathan Bunting, who wished to build a water mill on Church Branch, had land on the north side. William Cole, owner of the land on the other side was "not a liver in this County," so Bunting asked the court for an order for one acre of his land. According to the 41st Act of Assembly (which was for encouraging the building of mills), if the owner of the land on the other side refused to sell, the court was to order two commissioners or creditable men to value the land (if houses, orchards or other improvements were not involved) and put an acre in the possession of the mill builder. Ordered that Capt. Richard Drumond and Capt. Jno. Bagwell go on the land, value one acre and put Bunting in possession.7 
Land sold*1740He sold land in 1740 at tract A70, east of Tasley, Acc Co, VA. It was in this year that William Cole, now of Talbot County, MD sold his 150 acres of this tract to Jonahtan Buntine, blacksmith. Two years later, Bunting deeded it back, but when he died he again owned the land. The trust deed may have entailed the land to the sons, so perhaps William had the entailed docked and then resold to Bunting by a General Court deed. In 1764 Bunting (wife Mary) left to his son William Black Bunting the 150 acres he had bought from William Cole.1

MotherMary Beedle1 b. 1649
Last Edited5 Jan 2014
Birth*circa 1667Robert Cole was born circa 1667 at Northampton Co, VA.1 
Deed of Trust named*1685He was named in deed of trust in 1685 at tract A70, east of Tasley, Acc Co, VA. It was in this year that John Cole gave a mortgage to John West on his part of this tract, who in 1691 gave him a release, calling it "the same plantation called the Folly where Mary Cole (wife of John) liveth. This was another of the seveal Folly plantations mentioned in the story of A69. The deed also stated that the transfer was "for the better support of the said John Cole's wife and children," and to carry out the object Cole placed the property in trust for Mary for her life and then it was to go to their children, according to the following disposition: 150 acres to William, 125 acres each to Robert and Richard, and 100 acres to John.2 
Deed of Gift - Named*6 March 1688/89He was named in a deed of gift on 6 March 1688/89 at Accomack Co, VA. John Cole gave his sons Robert and Wm., as trustees for his daughter Frances, several items, including: a side-saddle, a gun, furniture, cattle, small grindstone, two gold rings, sheep, and a mare. Signed 6 March 1688/89, by John Cole. Witnesses: John Cole and Wm. Yeo.3 
Deed of Gift - Rec'd*16 February 1690/91He received by deed of gift on 16 February 1690/91 at Ye Folly, Matomkin, Accomack Co, VA. Deed: John West, gentleman, gave notice that John Cole, innholder, "did by his deed acknowledge" 500 acres on Matomkin to West. Mr. Richard Bayly had sold Cole the land, which was part of the plantation called "Ye Folly"; Mrs. Cole was currently living there. "For the better support of the said John Cole's wife and children", West released the land to John Cole, who was obligated to "make a firm deed of the said land to his wife and to all his sons for their future livelihood and acknowledged the same in court." Signed 10 February 1690/91, by John West and acknowledged by him in open court on 17 February 1690/91. John Cole had formerly purchased from Mr. Richard Bayly a 500 acre tract of land at Great Matomkin. Bounded by John Bagwell, John Dye, Lt. Col. John West and a fork of Great Matomkin Creek, the land was part of 2150 acres granted in 1672 to Ambrose White (deceased). For the future benefit of his wife Mary and children, John Cole assigned the land to her (unless she were to remarry after his death). She was to pay the taxes till the children came of age, at which time each would receive the acreage specified by Cole: William (150 acres), Robert (125 acres), Richard (125 acres) and John (125 acres). If any of the sons should die, his inheritance would go to the child Mary was expecting, if it were male. Cole reserved the right to use the pasture and timber for the good of his other plantation named "Freeman's Plantation." Cole entrusted part of his personal estate to Mr. John Washbourne and Mr. William Parker for the use of Cole's wife Mary--things like a feather bed, iron kettles, sheep, spinning wheel, a new "square-turned table" and cattle. Acknowledged in open court 16 February 1690/91, by John Cole. Witnesses: Cha. Leatherbury and Tully Robinson.4 
Deed of Gift - Named16 June 1691He was named in a deed of gift on 16 June 1691 at Accomack Co, VA. Deed: John Cole, who had purchased 345 acres at Great Matomkin from Richard Williams (cooper), later sold Tho. Middleton 150 acres of it that adjoined the old main horse road, the branch near the Court House, and a branch formerly called Die's Brig. Because of the marriage of Cole's daughter Frances and John Doe, Cole now named his son Robert Cole and his neighbor Walter Hargis trustees of the land for the benefit of Cole's daughter Frances Doe. She was to be immediately possessed of 100 acres adjoining the main road and the land of William Bunting; it had been lately surveyed by Capt. John Wallup. If Frances were to die without issue, the land would revert to John Cole, Sr., or his son William Cole. Signed 1 November 1690, by John Cole. Witnesses: Geo. Charnock and Wm. Yeo. (p. 206a, 207.)5 
Deed of Gift - Named15 September 1691He was named in a deed of gift on 15 September 1691 at Accomack Co, VA. William Yeo gave a cow and calf to Richard Cole and John Cole, twin sons of John Cole. When they came of age, the cow and her increase were to be divided equally. If the twins were to die, the cattle would be divided between their other brother Wm. Cole, their sister Angellica Cole and their mother. If the mother died before they came of age, then their brother Robert Cole should look after the cattle. Signed 20 September 1691, by Wm. Yeo.6 
Tax list*1695He was on the tax list in 1695 at Accomack Co, VA. He was shown as Robt. Cole with 1 tith on Mr. Burton's List. He was next to Wm. Yeo. There was also a John Cole with 1 tith on Mr. Mr. Ed Custis' list 2 doors from John Doe.1 
Court - named in ord*19 February 1695/96He was named in a court order on 19 February 1695/96 at Accomack Co, VA. Robert Cole petitioned that he had been summoned as a witness for Samuel Doe in his suit against George Pounce. Since Cole had attended six days it was ordered that Doe pay him 240 lbs tobacco and court costs.7 
Marriage*circa 1700He married Phillis (-----) circa 1700.8 
Land sold*3 November 1714Robert Cole sold land on 3 November 1714 at tract Wooten Underedge, Pitts Creek Hundred, Worcester Co, MD. Robert Cole of Acco. Co, VA, sold 150 acres of this tract to Edward Stevens. There was no mention of how he came by it, but the sale before this was 12 May 1682 when Timothy Peal & wife Elizabeth sold 150 acres to Garrett Supple, so perhaps Robert Cole married Garrett Supple's daughter.9 
Death*before 3 April 1722He died before 3 April 1722 at Accomack Co, VA. It was on this date that administration on the estate of Robert Cole was granted to Phillis Cole, widow of said Robert, with Henry Satchell & Jonathan Bunting securities.8 
Land deed named in*1739He was named in a deed in 1739 at tract A70, east of Tasley, Acc Co, VA. No record of any disposition of his land in this tract was discovered, but in 1739 Henry White sold his part of this tract to Robert's son John the 125 acres which had belonged to Robert. How White had obtained title is unknown, but perhaps it was by a General Court deed. The land was west of the William Cole part, along the branch, and was bounded on the west by another smaller branch. In 1739 John Cole sold 100 acres to John Smith and 3 years later (1742) he sold the remaining 25 acres to Joseph Wimbrough. The Robert Cole part of this tract later became the site of Roseland (A70E).2

Birth*circa 1650Francis Johnson (mulatto) was born circa 1650 at Accomack Co, VA.1 
Court - defendant*19 March 1688/89He was a defendant in a court case on 19 March 1688/89 at Accomack Co, VA. John Cole sued Francis Johnson declaring that Francis, on behalf of his brother Richard Johnson, attempted to set up on Cole's land as many posts and rails as were needed to make up 400 panels. According to the bargain, his brother had already been paid and had set up about 50 or 60 of the panels, leaving the rest unfinished. Francis Johnson's attorney pleaded the "general issue" and put Cole "upon the proof of his assumption." Cole produced several witnesses; after examining them, the court judged that they were sufficient and ordered Francis Johnson to return to his work and not leave till he had finished the remainder of the posts and rails for his brother. He was also to pay the costs of the suit. Statement of Walter Harges: Sometime during last December, Francis Johnson, mulatto, said that he had agreed with his brother Richard Johnson and undertook to set up and finish the post and rail fence that Richard had started for Mr. John Cole. Shortly afterward Francis worked on the fence with Harges, who had seen several parcels of rails and posts that Richard had gotten ready, but had not yet used. Signed and sworn in open court 19 March 1688/89, by Walter (H) Harges. Statement of William Anderson: Sometime last December, Francis Johnson, who was at Mr. Jno. Cole's, had several words with Cole about finishing a post and rail fence started by Richard Johnson. "After several proposals and pro and con between them," they agreed on the work. Francis told Anderson that he had agreed to set up the remaining part of the fence, but would not mend what his brother had set up; in return, Cole was to pay William Bunting the corn he was due from Richard. Francis was then to have a gun, "which he did much value." After that Francis worked several days on the fence. Signed and sworn in open court 19 March 1688/89, by Wm. Anderson. Statement of William German: Present at the time, German heard the parties agree about the work on the fence; Francis would get posts and finish setting up the fence, but would not mend that already set up. He was to start immediately. Signed and sworn in open court. 19 March 1688/89, by William (X) German.
Deposition of William Bunting aged about 30 years: Sometime in December Francis Johnson, mulatto, came to Bunting's house and said that his brother Richard had sold him his gun and lock that was being repaired. In return for the gun, Francis was to go to John Cole's and finish the 400 fence panels started by his brother. Bunting told Francis that his brother owed him two bushels of Indian corn. If Cole would pay the corn, then Francis could have the gun. Cole did pay the corn, and Francis had the gun delivered to him. Francis went to Cole's to finish his brother's work. Signed and sworn in open court 19 March 1688/89, by William Bunting.1

No record of any disposition of his land in this tract was discovered, but in 1739 Henry White sold his part of this tract to Robert's son John the 125 acres which had belonged to Robert. How White had obtained title is unknown, but perhaps it was by a General Court deed. The land was west of the William Cole part, along the branch, and was bounded on the west by another smaller branch. In 1739 John Cole sold 100 acres to John Smith and 3 years later (1742) he sold the remaining 25 acres to Joseph Wimbrough. The Robert Cole part of this tract later became the site of Roseland (A70E).3 
Court - name in stat*29 July 1747He was named in a statement that was recorded in court records on 29 July 1747 at Accomack Co, VA. The court ruled that John Cole was sufficient security to save the parish from the cost of maintaining and bringing up the illegitimate child that Mary Turner was expecting; Mary had named William Cole as the father.4
