Church Warden*31 May 1763Joseph served as a church warden on 31 May 1763 at tract A125, south of Guilford Creek, Accomack Co, VA. In 1704 Griffith and Anne Savage sold 250 acres to John Clarke, it being the northeast quarter of the original 1,000 acre patent. In 1713 Clarke resold to Hancock Custis and John Wise Sr, as trustees "for the use of the Parish of Accomack for ever for the Glebe." At this time there was only one Parish in Accomack, which took in the whole county. In 1724 Rev. William Black, the then minister, said the "Glebe and house good for nothing, rented for £1. I do not live on it." On 2 Nov 1762 an Act was passed in Williamsburg which divided the Parish of Accomack in Acccomack County into 2 District Parishes. It was ordered that the previous Glebe land be sold and that a new one be obtained for each Parish. On 31 May 1763, complying with the mandated, the church wardens Coventon Corbin, John Kitson, Joseph Stockley, Wm. Matthews, Samuel Beavans, Thomas Crippen, Charles Stockley and George Holden sold the 250-acre Glebe farm to Charles Bagwell, but apparently they felt the land was the best obtainable for the new upper parish of Accomack, so on the same day, Bagwell and wife Anne deeded it all back to the church wardens Coventon Corbin and Southy Simpson. The deed showed it contained 250 acres on a branch of Guilford Creek and sold for 417 pounds.7,8

Birth*circa 1688Charles was born circa 1688 at Accomack Co, VA. 
Will - Father's*6 May 1718Charles was named in his father's will on 6 May 1718 at Accomack Co, VA. In his will Charles Stockly, Yeoman, gave to sons Joseph & Charles all my lands & plantation where I now live. To son Jacob land adjcent where I now live. Daughter Elizabeth. Wife Rebecca. Son in law William Mills personal property which was his mothers. Friend Sebastian Delastatius Ex'r. Richard Kittson & my Exr. to divide plantation Witt: Richard Kitson, Nathaniel Williams, Samuel Turner..1 
Marriage*after 1 October 1734He married Comfort (of Elias) Taylor, daughter of Elias (of Wm I) Taylor and Comfort Ann [42] Anderson, after 1 October 1734. This was the date Comfort's first husband Solomon Ewell's will was proved..2 
Land sold*1747Charles sold land in 1747 at Accomack Co, VA. It was in this year that a Charles Stockley deeded his brother Joseph 370 aces, saying it was the land John Stockley (I) had left to his son Charles, and was the same land which Joseph had deeded to Charles (II) by a General Court Deed in 1743. It seems possible that John (I) had left the lands entailed to his sons, so Charles (I) had had no right to sell, and that these sons Charles & Joseph had sued in General Court and recoverd. Again there is a blank in the record until 150 acres each were found in the possession of Joseph Matthews and Alexander Stockley, so more General Court transactions may have been involved..3 
Will - Brother's*15 October 1748Charles was named in his brother's will on 15 October 1748 at Accomack Co, VA. In his will Jospeh Stockley gave to wife Rebecca Stockley 1/2 my personal estate during her life & then to her daughter Sarah Stockley.

Brother Charles Stockley & Joseph Stockley, Clerk, Exrs. Witt: Samuel Burton, Joseph Stockley, Anne Mackemy. Joseph Stockley's will was probated on 27 Dec 1748 and John Stockley heir at law to the testator was cited to appear and the Sheriff's return showed "not found within my Bailiwick.".4 
Will - Witnessed*9 August 1750He witnessed a will on 9 August 1750 at Accomack Co, VA. It was on this date that Charles Stockly, Philip Fisher & Mary Fisher witnessed the will of Edmund Tunnel. Edmund named a son Joseph and Charles Stockly named a Joseph Tunnel in his will.5 
Marriagecirca 1760He married Ann (21) (of Wm & Bridget) Bradford, daughter of William (5) Bradford Sr. and Bridget (10) Fisher, circa 1760 at Accomack Co, VA.6 
Church Warden*31 May 1763Charles served as a church warden on 31 May 1763 at tract A125, south of Guilford Creek, Accomack Co, VA. In 1704 Griffith and Anne Savage sold 250 acres to John Clarke, it being the northeast quarter of the original 1,000 acre patent. In 1713 Clarke resold to Hancock Custis and John Wise Sr, as trustees "for the use of the Parish of Accomack for ever for the Glebe." At this time there was only one Parish in Accomack, which took in the whole county. In 1724 Rev. William Black, the then minister, said the "Glebe and house good for nothing, rented for £1. I do not live on it." On 2 Nov 1762 an Act was passed in Williamsburg which divided the Parish of Accomack in Acccomack County into 2 District Parishes. It was ordered that the previous Glebe land be sold and that a new one be obtained for each Parish. On 31 May 1763, complying with the mandated, the church wardens Coventon Corbin, John Kitson, Joseph Stockley, Wm. Matthews, Samuel Beavans, Thomas Crippen, Charles Stockley and George Holden sold the 250-acre Glebe farm to Charles Bagwell, but apparently they felt the land was the best obtainable for the new upper parish of Accomack, so on the same day, Bagwell and wife Anne deeded it all back to the church wardens Coventon Corbin and Southy Simpson. The deed showed it contained 250 acres on a branch of Guilford Creek and sold for 417 pounds.7,8 
Will*14 September 1764He made a will on 14 September 1764 at Accomack Co, VA. To wife Ann Stockly 1 silver spoon marked SDA &c. Daughter Betty Stockly. Grandaughter Comfort Stockly.

Jone Elzey of Brokenhurs(lost) in the County of South(ampton) widow gives power of attorney to her grandson Robert Parker to receive from John Elzey merchant a legacy bequeathed to her by her son Ralph Barlowe dec'd.)2 
Anecdote*1655 We find reference to John Elzey in Northampton County, Virginia, as early as 1655/6. On February 28, 1655/6, the Northampton Court granted "John Elzye" certificate for 200 acreg of land "per rights viz' John Elsye, Arnold Elsye, Ann Shaw, Dan' Mickley." The variation in the spelling of the name in no wise affects the matter of identification. From certain items of record that remain to us it is evident that John Elzey derived descent from the Elzeys of Southampton, England, and that he was drawn to Northampton County, Virginia, through relationship to Ralph Barlowe, who had settled there at an early date and had become prominent in the affairs of that county. Records prove that John Elzey was a nephew of Ralph Barlowe; Barlowe and Elzey's father having been half-brothers. Ralph Barlowe died in 1652 naming John Elzey, "my kinsman," a residuary legatee and executor. Thus it was that Elzey came to Northampton County, where his name several times appears in the records with the designation of "merchant." John Elzey and Sarah, his wife, conveyed lands in Northampton County, October, 1658, and in Accomack County in October, 1663. Lord Baltimore did not enlist a more faithful and upright officer in the "Eastern Shore" adventure than John Elzey. The very fact of Elzey's having been named a member of the original "commission" of November, 1661, to effect the settlement of the Manokin-Annemessex area is evidence of his ability. Surpassing this quality of ability, however, was the man's spirit of loyalty to his charge in guarding the best interests of both the settlers and the Lord Proprietor. The remaining records of the transaction of affairs in the Manokin-Annemessex settlement during the period of its establishment give every evidence of Elzey's able conduct in office. Under the proclamation of November 6, 1661, directing the establishment of "the Eastern Shore below Choptank" settlement, John Elzey was named as the third among the three "commissioners" (Edmund Scarburgh and Randall Revell being the other two) to grant warrants for land in this area and administer the oath of allegiance to the settlers. Becoming one of the two resident commissioners, Elzey established his home on the north side of the Manokin River on a thousand-acre tract, which he called "Almodington." On May 2, 1662, he was again commissioned (with Scarburgh and Revell) to issue land warrants, and was also named (with Revell and Thorne) in the first "Comm' -commission- to keepe the peace" in this Eastern Shore settlement. In February, 1662/3, Elzey was named first in the Commission of the Peace and for issuing land warrants "for that part of the Eastern Shore newly settled and adjoining Virginia," thus becoming the chief officer of the settlement. This office Elzey continued to hold until his death. When Colonel Edmund Scarburgh first made his "demand for obedience and acknowledgment to his majestie in payment of rights for land from the people inhabiting at Manoakin and Annamessex, as well as submission to his majesties government of Virginia," it was John Elzey who refused to accede thereto and who immediately informed the Governor and Council of Maryland of the perilous position of the Manokin-Annemessex settlement. And, finally, when the undisciplined Scarburgh made his invasion of the settlements with an armed force in October, 1663, in a further pursuit of enforcing his demands, "Mr. Elzey & Cap' William Thorne who being officers of ye Lord Baltimore desired respite of time untill they could returne their commissions wch they engaged their words and Reputations to performe as soon as possible." So Scarburgh reported the attitude of John Elzey, Chief Commissioner of the Peace, and Captain William Thorne, the military commander (and also a magistrate) of the settlement. There is no evidence that Elzey (or Thorne) resigned his office or showed further wavering in allegiance to Lord Baltimore; while in the renewal of his Lordship's Commission of the Peace for the settlement in February, 1663/4, we find John Elzey again given first place in the Commission. We cannot but feel, in view of the evidence afforded by the recorded transactions of affairs in the settlement at that time, that John Elzey's consistently wise course in conducting those affairs, and his unyielding allegiance to Lord Baltimore's government went far towards saying the Manokin-Annemessex area from the rapacious clutches of Colonel Edmund Scarburgh. Elzey's staunchness throughout this whole affair must indeed have been an inspiration to the valiant Annemessex men who openly defied Scarburgh and all of his pretentions.* "John Elzey died at Manoakin & was buried at his plantation in May A° D° one thousand six hundred sixty and -four." John Elzey, married (prior to 1658) Sarah (whose surname is unknown) and by her had at least two sons. (1) Arnold Elzey (died 1716), married Major Waller; and (2) John Elzey, Junior, who died 1667. Mrs. Sarah Elzey, married, second, Thomas Jordan; third, Charles Ballard; fourth, Stephen Luffe.3

Marriage*before 1658He married Sarah Barlow (Barlowe?) before 1658.4,3 
Land pat named in*20 October 1661John Elzey Sr. was named in a land patent on 20 October 1661 at tract A32, Harborton, Accomack Co, VA. On 12 Oct 1652 a patent was issued to Thomas Teagle (Teackle) for 350 acres which was the estern part of the subject tract. On 20 Oct 1661 the patent was reissued to Richard Parker, although the body of the document reads: "by him (Teackle) sold to George Parker and John Elzey and by Elzey assigned to said Parker."5,6
