52 38 Edw. III (1364). Deed (charter of enfeoffment). Thomas Mannyng of Bedminster to Thomas atte Mede of Bedminster all his lands with buildings in the west street of Bedminster which Richard Schapp lately held. To hold to the grantee his heirs and assigns for ever, paying annually one penny at Hockday. Thomas atte Mede has paid 10 marks. 1457 Deed (charter of feoffment): Philip Mede burgess and merchant of Bristol to Robert Ricard all his tenement called Scappesplace in the vill of Bedminster which together with Thoms Mede he lately had of the feoffment of Thomas Manning, to hold of the lords chief.

A Feoffment is a form of transferring a freehold in land, whether it be a fee-simple, a fee tail, or an estate for life. [Estate.] It is not at the present time much in use, and it is effected by the person who is in possession (the feoffor) delivering up the possession to another (the feoffee), and expressing at the same time what estate in the land the feoffor intends that the feoffee shall have. Before the Statute of Frauds (29 Charles II., ch. 3) came into operation no writing was necessary to show for what purpose, or for what estate, possession was given of the land, but this statute requires a writing which is usually a deed.

53 <<<>>>> History of Genealogy of The Families of Miller, Woods, Harris, Wallace, Maupin, Oldham, Kavanaugh and Brown by William Harris Miller, Richmond, Ky. 1901; Daniel Maupin and wife, first made their home in that part of Hanover Co., which afterwards became Louisa. All their children were born there with the exception of the oldest son Gabriel, who was born at the home of his grandfather in Williamsburg. About 1747 they removed to Albemarle Co., and settled on Moorman's River near where the villiage of Whitehall now stands. The Homestead was purchased from Thomas Moorman, the original patentee, but Daniel also had a land grant from the state for 1188 acres. (Va. land grant Reg. Book 31, pg. 652) date of 9/20/1745. At the time of he death he owned 1500 acres.

Daniel MAUPIN married Margaret VIA in St. Peter's Parish, Louisa County, Virginia. He came to Albemarle County, Virginia about the middle of the 18th century. The last record of the family in Louisa County, Virginia is May 1745. Daniel MAUPIN obtained a patent for land on Moorman's River in 1748 in Albemarle County, Virginia. He entered more than fifteen hundred acres in the White Hall neighborhood. Daniel MAUPIN died on September 20, 1788 "at his seat in [Whitehall], Albemarle County, Virginia, leaving a wife and upwards of 200 descendants" [AbsVaNewsp: VIC 22 Oct 1788]. Daniel MAUPIN's will was probated October 9, 1788, and was recorded at Charlottesville, Virginia. Margaret (VIA) MAUPIN died in 1789 in Albemarle County, Virginia. Both are believed to be buried in the yard of their old homestead [family cemetery] Whitehall, Albemarle County, Virginia.
He lived in Green Co., KY at one time He was married to Margaret VIA about 1719.

56 About Eddie from a letter of Frances Beldzikowski's:

He hated staying home with his blind father. His brother teased him a lot because he was a good kid and never got in trouble with the police - He joined the service, made a career and married a Japanese woman had one kid and I supposed he came back (retired) to live on the south side. This is all hearsay.

64 All of Robert and Elizabeth Fosters children are named in his will probated in February 1715/16. From the document we know that Robert, Jr. was their oldest child as he received the land and plantation house where the family lived, primogeniture was English tradition. The plantation was located on land acquired after 1710. Robert, Sr. however made the provision that his mother (Robert, Jr.?s mother) could live on the land for ?five or six years.? (For those that report that Robert?s first wife was Sarah Biggs can see clearly from the will that Robert Sr. was only married once to Elizabeth Garnett for the will states clearly Robert, Jr. inherited the land, however his mother was to have use of it.) James and John were the next oldest sons as they inherited the remainder of the land with James having his choice. The first daughter was Barbara who had married Richard Loving. - Source; http://www.drbgfoster.com/foster.asp

---------------------------------

After reviewing extensively the records of Lower Norfolk County, Virginia from early 1600 to the 1700s looking for proof of our Foster immigrant , I am still not certain who he is. Please read the article and let me know your thoughts.
Let us exam just what has been documented on Richard Foster, Immigrant. We know that he came to the Virginia Colonies in 1635 aboard the ship, Safety and on the same ship was his stepfather, Bartholomew Hoskins. Bartholomew had married his mother, Mrs. Dorcas Foster on July 3, 1624 in St. Dunstan?s Church, in Tepney, London, England. The records show that she was a ?widow with several children.? One of his siblings was a sister, Ann with a brother, Robert as a possibility.

We know that in Lower Norfolk County, Virginia there were at least three Richard Fosters in the same time span. One of these Richard Fosters was an attorney and would marry Dorcas Hoskins, daughter of Bartholomew and Mrs. Dorcas Foster Hoskins. It is this Richard Foster who was a member of the House of Burgess for Lower Norfolk County. It was this Richard Foster that was called Lieutenant, Captain and then Major. It was this Richard Foster who would move with his father-in-law, Bartholomew Hoskins, and brother-in-law, Richard Hoskins, to Albermarle, North Carolina. Consequently one Richard Foster was a son-in-law to Bartholomew Hoskins and another was a stepson. No wonder there was confusion. Both of these Richard Foster were literate. There is at least one other who was illiterate and used the (W) as his signature. One of the three Richard Fosters would marry Ann Jackson on November 16, 1640 and father a child conceived out of wedlock. It is difficult to tell which one of the Richards did the dirty deed. Regardless it has but little bearing on the identification of the true immigrant. These are just a few of the essential documented facts concerning the three Richard Fosters of Lower Norfolk County, Virginia.

There are numerous citings of the marriage of Richard Foster to Sussan Garnett, daughter of Thomas and Elizabeth Garnett. I have found no documentation of this marriage nor has anyone else that I have been able to contact. This does not mean it did not happen it just means that we cannot prove or disprove it. We do know that her name was not Susanna, Susannah, or Susanna (Ann) as has been reported. Some have tried to make Ann and Sussan the same person by naming her Sussanah and calling her Ann. If you read the original muster roll taken after the great Indian massacre it is spelled, Sussan. Her name was probably Susanna but the roll taker spelled it phonetically, thus Sussan.

The marriage date of Richard and Sussan has been reported to be in 1641 give or take a few years. As in most cases we could expect their first child in 1642 or 1643 and then a child thereafter every two years. However, it has been documented that this Richard Foster went to England in 1649 for a five-year period. He returned in 1654. Did he take his wife and family with him to England? There are no records that have been found to show that he did or did not. Did he have children before he left for England and while he was in England? These are just some of the things that we do not know about Richard Foster.

There have been numerous reports as to the number and names of Richard and Sussan?s male children. They number range from two (Robert and John) to seven (Robert, John, Richard, James, George, Thomas, and William.) However, Robert and John are the only ones for which we have documentation. This does not mean that the others did not exist it only means that we have documentation for only two. Robert Foster the first ancestor for which we have documentation was born between 1651 and 1660 in Kingston Parish, Gloucester County, Virginia. We know little to nothing about his younger life. He married Elizabeth in the early 1680s in Gloucester County, Virginia. The preponderance of evidence is for Elizabeth being a Garnett whose father or brother was John Garnett. The Garnetts and Fosters were close neighbors both living in Gloucester County. In 1692 Robert Foster, his brother, John Foster, and Robert?s brother-in-law, John Garnett along with several other families bought adjacent land in Essex County, Virginia near the Rappahannock River. It was here in St. Ann?s Parish on Gilson?s Run (presently called Mount Landing Creek) that Robert and Elizabeth lived and would raise their large family of eleven children.

Robert Foster died testate in Essex County in 1715/16. His widow, Elizabeth married Robert Charlesworth before 1721. It was in that year that she and her underage children would move with her new husband to King William County, now Caroline County. By 1742 we find the family had moved to Amelia County to live beside some of Elizabeth?s grown children. It is in Amelia County along Stock Creek that Elizabeth died and is buried.

68 Amer was brought to the colonies in 1677 to help work 700 acres in upper New Kent County owned by John Webb and John Rea, the two men who transported him and 13 other immigrants from France and England. He was more then likely escaping from the Heugonot persecutions in France (possibly Boulogne). He settled in Mannikantown, Virginia - A Heugonot settlement on the James River.

<<<>>>

France of the 15 and 1600's resembled Europe during the second World War. A growing religious group, the Huguenots, were seen as a threat to the Catholic Church. The Church controlled every aspect of most all of Europe including the governments. The Huguenots, another name for Protestants, were forced to practice their Faith in secrecy or risk persecution and death. Amer Via, was a practicing Huguenot and was not one to run and hide in order to believe in his God in his way. In 1677 Amer, along with fourteen other passengers boarded a ship and was transported to Virginia by John Fea and John Webb of New Kent Co. He had sailed away from one of the most advanced civilizations of the time, landing a few months later in the midst of nothing but a wilderness with a few small settlements scattered here and there and brought together thru deer paths and travel by rivers. He first settled in Williamsburg, one of the more "civilized" towns. Where there had been huge palaces and three or more storied homes and castles, he found mostly one-story log cabins with a few brick homes thrown in for good measure.

Once he arrived on our shores, it did not take Amer long to begin making a living. In all of my research, "his stubborness resulted in his spending three days in the stockage". Harold H. Via spent many years on the research of our family and in a letter written by him in 1988, we have one expanation as to why Amer had to "do time". Amer had set up a blacksmith's shop. It seems that his neighbor used the back of Amer's shop as his own personal "driveway". Amer was not amused. He decided to erect a metal pole at the edge of his property that effetively put a stop to the neighbor's "tresspassing". The twomen had words. Because Amer was not of the "official" (Episcopalians) religion of England, he was "called up" and sentanced. Once again, his own religion had been used against him. But, Amer had not let his home in France, made the months' lng voyage, learned new languages and worked to build his business only to have his new found freedom tested so soon. Once his sentance was served, he packed up and left once more, this time thru a very different kind of wilderness.

<<<>>>

Eventually, he purchased his own land and became a prosperous farmer. At least three of his children were baptized in the church of St. Peter's Parish, New Kent.

Records indicate the sons and daughters were married into prominent families and the Via in general were known to reproduce "like flies." Via were also known then and in later years to marry into the Indian Tribes.

Amer and Margaret's son John married Mary Powhatan, a member of the Powhatan Tribe, the tribe of Pocahontas. John and Mary settled in Amhurst County, Virginia, where, at that time, the Monacan Tribe did not allow white people to settle unless they were part Indian or married to an Indian.

<<<>>>

....Our aim is to start with Amer Via and his wife Margaret, who after a frustrating and fruitless living in Williamsburg that accumulated in his having to serve a few days in the stockage for his stubbornness. His decision to strike out into the wilderness that was at that time inhibited only by Indians. What a decision it must have been to strike out with their family which at that time consisted besides himself and his wife Margaret, four known sons but strong suspicion that there was a fifth. The four known were William, Robert, Gideon and Josias but I am almost positive that there was another named David who was but a baby when they struck out on their own. How they followed the Chickohominy River northward and then overland about twenty miles to New Castle Ferry on the Pamunkey River and settled slight westward on what was to be a site for a church. At this time, this territory was listed under Blisland Parish but before the first daughters were born, this was changed to St. Peter's Parish where the recording of the death of Naomi occured on March 26, 1688. The birth of the other daughters followed, Judeth on April 11, 1688, Margaret on August 3, 1701 and Mary on February 27, 1703. We were able to trace most of these children, one back to Williamsburg when Margaret married Gabriel DeMaupin in 1720. Gabriel Senior ran a tavern in Williamsburg and seemed to have done well. At his death his property went to his son Gabriel, who was the oldest and Daniel, who was with his uncle. William Via, along with his sister, Margaret Via Maupin, went to what is now Albemarle County. Daniel settled at White Hall on the old Maupin place and William, who also had a son named William, and as far as we have been able to learn, he was the one who settled near Doylesville on what is know as the Rhodes Via place. This was around 1750, long after Margaret had seen her good friend, Martha Dandridge married at the Custis mansion. Incidentally, it was the Martha that later married a Colonial in the French and Indian War by the name of George Washington.

Good Morning, Maupin and Via Group!!! Made it through the twenty seven pages of Statham material. Looks even better than I had expected. Now William (Amer) Via can be proud of the fact that he was the ancestor of at least two Presidents of the United States. We found out several months ago that Daniel and Margaret Via Maupin had a descentant named George Bush, Rep. President from Texas. Now it is reported that Robert and Jean Via Thompson had a descentant named Lyndon B. Johnson, Dem. President from Texas. Well this will balance our Political Ticket.
William Albertson maupinreunion@carrollsweb.com

Good Morning, Group!!! I have posted information on my opinion before on the subject of the real name of the first Via to come to America. I realize several of you or perhaps most of you do not agree with my findings but I feel that I should at least post additional information as I find it.
Recently, with in the past three weeks additional information has been found. In the records of Charles Smith Maupin and his son Addison Amos Maupin. This information, dated 1932, was written/typed by Addison Amos Maupin from information given to him by his father Charles Smith Maupin. First let me state that in 1998 while I was planning the 2000 Maupin Reunion to be held in White Hall/Charlottesville, VA I thought it appropriate that we put up tombstones for Daniel Maupin and his wife Margaret Via. I decided that the names of their parents should also be on the tombstone. My problem was that there was a dispute or information lacking on the name of Margaret father, was it really Amer. After spending alot of time reviewing all the data available I found that the name was most logically William Via and not Amer Via. However, to make sure this would be somewhat accurate we used William (Amer) Via on the tombstone. This would serve to identify him in either case. At that time I was certain that Daniel and Margaret had named their son William after Margaret's father since there was not a William in the Maupin family before that time. Also I said to several of the people who worked with me on this, "If the real name is to be found it will come from descendants of this William Maupin line." The use of the name William Amos Maupin is a common one in this line and the use of the name of Amos Maupin also. We cannot connect this use of the name Amos to any other earlier Maupins also. Unless they are previous to Gabriel Maupin born abt. 1666 in France. We have thus far not been able to establish the names of his parents. Now back to the current findings. In the papers of Charles Smith Maupin and his son it states that Margaret Via's father was William Via, there is no mention of the name Amer or Amos. This statement was not documtented as to where it originated from, but the chain of information indicates that this is correct. Charles Smith Maupin was born in 1846 in Albemarle Co. VA. His father William Amos Maupin, a Medical Doctor died in 1848. So this indicates that Charles did not get this information from his father. However, Charles was raised until 1861 by his grandfather, Chapman White Maupin born July 4, 1777 and died August 27, 1861 in White Hall, VA. Chapman lived his entire line living across the road from his grandparents Daniel and Margaret Maupin's home. We now refer to this as the "Maupin Homeplace". Chapman was eleven when his grandfather died and twelve when his grandmother died. His father William Maupin also lived across the road from the "Maupin Homeplace" his entire life. Now after the death of his grandfather, Charles was raised by his grandmother,Mary Graves Spencer Maupin b. December 25, 1779 and died July 23, 1868. During this time the guardians for Charles were Socrates Maupin and Addison Maupin his two uncles. All three of these Maupin brothers, William Amos, Socrates and Addison were highly educated individuals, going to the University of Virginia at Charlottesville and Hamden Sidney College of VA. Most of you know that Dr. Socrates Maupin of the University of Virginia at Charlottesville was our first Maupin Researcher. He began his work about 1830 and worked until his death in 1871, however, some or perhaps most of his work has disappeared through the years. What remains of his notes and writings are at the University of Virginia in the Alderman Library Archives. As I have worked over the past thirty years, however, I have found mentioned in several research works of family members of seeing Socrates papers and these notes contained informantion I found to be true, but not in the papers that are located at Alderman. This was supported by the report that these papers were circualted by mail to family members doing research in the early 1900's and people were believed to have removed pages and not returned the entire collection to Socrate's grandaughters where were their owners at that time. Therefore we may never know just how many pages are missing from his original writings. The most compelling fact that I feel that supports the idea that these Charles Smith Maupin writings are accurates are these. During 1992-1998 while living in White Hall working on the Maupin family I was determined to find out the death date of Margaret Via Maupin. Socrates papers that were left stated "Daniel died in 1788 and Margaret died the next year and were buried in the yard of the homeplace". By doing some examination of personal property tax and the recording of the inventory of Daniel Maupin esates I found that Margaret must have died during the last two weeks of March or the first week of April 1789. In Charles Smith Maupin papers he states that Margaret Maupin died March 22, 1789 This was just where the date should have been according to court records. We therefore used the date of April 1789 as the death date for Margaret on her tombstone. But the biggest find was the statement that William Maupin was born near Cukoo, VA. December 2, 1732. We had more or less established the date of birth as 1732, but had not previously know the month and day. I in 1994 while working on locating the 250 acres of "headright" land Gabriel Maupin received in 1705, I found that this land had been passed to the two sons Gabriel and Daniel and Gabriel had left his share to his brother in his will in 1742. Two hundred acres of this land was after 1742 located in Louisa and 50 acres was located in Hanover County. The Hanover County, deeds were, for the most part, destroyed in the Civil War but the Hanover deeds were not. This made it possible to establish the dates when Daniel sold this land, now broken up in several parcels. I personally visited the land in Louisa and talked to the present owner about the land. He said "It is no wonder Mr. Maupin moved on, This is nothing but a swamp". But I do remember this land is located very near was was once a town called Cuckoo, VA. Until I was sent these Charles Smith Maupin papers no research had ever mentioned the town of Cuckoo, but this is correct, I know personally. I realize that this is still not "documented proof" of the true name of Mr. Via, but again I suggest that we all keep an open mind to this fact. If we continue to look in France for Amer Via we may never find him, but if we also check for William or even Amos Via we may someday find our Via family in France. William Alberston

As many of you know Harold H. Via spent many years researching the Via family. I have recently received a copy of a letter written by Harold in 1988 and would like to share a portion of this letter with you. Amor Via "had first gone to Williamsburg and had a blacksmith shop at the rear of his property. Somehow he got embroiled with his neighbor. Who had a side entrance for their carriages but had to 'swing wide' across Amor's back yard to gain alignment to enter their side entrance. We don't find just why Amor made the decision but assume that he just got tired of having an entire section of his yard being used for his neighbor's purpose and one day he erected a metal pole just at the edge of his property and thus disallowing turning into the side entrance. Not being of the 'official' (Episcopalinas) religion of England, he was 'called up' and was sentenced to seven days in the stockade. It was at this time we assume that Amor talked to William Rea and arrangements were made to be transported. After being released, Amor loaded all his wagons and posessions and 'headed out'. first traveling up the James River towards Richmond but then taking a 'due north' course' and arrived on the Mechamps River. He first took land on a hillside (about ten feet elevation) but later on donated this property to the church and moved almost to Mechanicsville which was right in the middle of the Swamp."

I believe Amer was born about 1655. He was transported to Virginia in 1677. And was not listed as a minor in the transportation records. Therefore he was at least 21 years of age in 1677. Judy Maupin Pons Jlmaupin@aol.com (Burgundy France)

St. Peter's Parish Church in New Kent County, Virginia. Built in 1701, the church is believed to be the location of the marriage between George and Martha Washington on January 6, 1759. One of the oldest churches in the Commonwealth, the site was originally purchased for 146,000 pounds of tobacco. In 1862, Union soldiers marching from Fort Monroe toward Richmond used the building as a stable. The original portion of the church is one of the few Jacobean baroque style structures in America; the 1740s stump tower is also unusual. Located on S.R. 642 (St. Peter's Lane) off S.R. 609 (Old Church Road) near Talleysville. Church grounds are open to the public every day, but the interior is open only by appointment. Regular worship services are held at 9 and 11 a.m. Sundays. Call (804) 932-4846 for information. (Source: "Discover New Kent" - August 1988)

AMOS married MARGARET in 1678/1680 in St. Peter's, New Kent, Virginia. MARGARET died about 1716 in Hanover, Virginia.

Per Harold Houston Via: It is believed that Margaret was the second spouse of Amer and came from the Parmunkey Indain Tribe who lived in that area.

John Via married Mary Powhatan, a member of the Powhatan Indian Tribe. John and Mary settled down in Amhurst County, VA. Amhurst was notable in the fact that the Monacan Tribe did not allow white Settlers into their lands. If you were either married to an Indian or were in fact part Indian you were grudgingly Accepted. They did not allow any white Settlers in until the late 1780's.

Serious Shooting and Cutting Affray at Richlands Six men participate and only one escaped injury-several very badly wounded

There was a serious shooting and cutting affray at Richlands , on the Clinch Valley Division, Thursday, when James Pruitt, Anthony Christian, Reese Helbert , Sam Pack, Crockett Pack, and Tenney Pack got into aracket on the outskirts of the town.

Pruitt ,who is a married man ,40 years of age, was shot four times by Crockett Pack-once in the left ___, once in the right groin and once in each leg. Anthony Christian , aged 22, was shot three times, all of the bullets taken effect in the back. His injurys are very serious. Sam Pack , aged 28, had one of his hands nearly cut off. Crockett Pack, age 25, is cut very badly in three or four places about the face and neck.He is the man whom a Norfolk and Western conducter thrashed on the train while he was returning to Richlands from Main's show, which exibited in Tazewell last fall.

Helbert is the only man who participated in Thursday's affray who excaped injury. Young Tenny Pack has left for parts unknown. Pruitt and Christian are lying in cots in the school

Justice Cecil will bear the evidence in the case today , and the prospects are that he will send all the parties to jail who are able to go and have the balance of the gang put under heavy guard. The cause of the whole trouble was too much moon shine liquor.
