Patrick Campbell I1,2,3

M, ID# 3040, (1696 - 1769)
Father:John Campbell I (16 Nov 1674 - )
Mother:Grissell "Grace" Hay (c 1678 - 1770)
Charts:Susan Paulding Ruff * lineage
     Patrick Campbell I was born in 1696 at Co Londonderry, Ireland. He was the son of John Campbell I and Grissell "Grace" Hay. Patrick Campbell I married Delilah Thompson ? a 1715. Patrick Campbell I married Elizabeth Taylor c 1716.3 Patrick Campbell I immigrated in 1726 to Lancaster Co, Pennsylvania. He married Elinor (Unknown) in 1753.3 Patrick Campbell I died in 1769 at Augusta Co, Virginia.
      Patrick Campbell operated a tavern and trading post for travelers and Indians and served as the first elected constable in Lancaster Co, PA.

When Patrick moved to Augusta Co, VA in 1733 he obtained a 1546 acre land tract -- one of the largest patents. He was deeded land from the Beverley Tract in Augusta Co, VA in 1738, which he and his wife sold in 1752. Patrick and his family consisting of Elizabeth, Charles, William, Patrick Jr, John, Mary, Elizabeth and Gennet Campbell were imported into Orange Co, VA on 22 May 1740.

Delilah Thompson may have been a possible first wife. Patrick's land deed of 15 May 1754 named a last wife, Elinor.

The Gedge online family files have a great deal more detail if needed regarding Patrick's descendants.

Charles Christian I (younger son Charles)1,2,3,4,5,6

M, ID# 3049, (c 1684 - 7 Apr 1761)
Father:Thomas Christian I (1636 - 1694)
Mother:Unknown Corbin (a 1655 - )
Charts:Gertrude Ellis Shell lineage
     Charles Christian I (younger son Charles) was born c 1684 at Goochland Co, Virginia. He was the son of Thomas Christian I and Unknown Corbin. Charles Christian I (younger son Charles) married Elizabeth Hunt, daughter of John Hunt and Elizabeth Turner ?, c 1702 at Westover Parish, Charles City Co, Virginia. Charles Christian I (younger son Charles) died on 7 Apr 1761 at Westover Parish, Charles City Co, Virginia.
      Charles Christian is presumed to be another son of Thomas Christian senior because in 1714 and 1727 Charles patented lands in the vicinity of lands patented by Thomas junior, James and John Christian and because there were reportedly no other Christian families in Charles City Co or New Kent Co at that time.

Charles patented 75 acres in Charles City Co, VA on Storey's [sic] Run and John Hunt's line in 2 Nov 1705; on 16 Aug 1715 400 acres in Henrico Co, VA north side of the James River on Licking Hole Creek probably near Beaver Dam Creek in the part of Henrico Co called Goochland Co ; 672 acres in Charles City Co in 1717 adjacent to John Hunt's and Thomas Christian's lines and on the Chickahominy Path; 400 acres in Henrico Co north of the James River on his own line west of Wild Boar Creek in 1725; on 13 Oct 1727 400 acres near Beaver Dam Creek in the part of Henrico Co called Goochland ; 400 acres in Goochland Co, VA west of the James River on Deep Creek (of Licking Hole Creek) on 28 Sep 1728; 400 acres in Goochland Co up Wild Boar Creek adjacent to Thomas Christian on 28 Sep 1730; 200 acres in Henrico Co on the branches of Tuckaho Creek on 17 Sep 1731; and 400 acres on Wild Boare Creek, a branch of Licking Hole Creek, in Goochland Co bounded by the land of said Christian on 4 Nov 1732. He reportedly also obtained numerous other Goochland patents. In April 1761 Charles's son Turner Hunt Christian sold the 265 acre tract on the fork of Story's Run where Charles lived until his death. In 1750 Charles made a deed of gift to Stephen Watkins of Amelia Co, VA. He also deeded land to Charles Christian junior of Goochland in 1754.

One or more Charles Christians -- our ancestor's son was also named Charles -- was active in the Charles City Co, VA court system in 1737, from 1744 through 1748, in 1750 and in 1757, including serving on four juries between 1737 and 1745. A Charles Christian deeded a gift to Joel Christian in 1747 and to Robert Adams in 1744; no wife appeared in court to relinguish dower associated with these deeds. In 1746 a white servant petitioned in court to be freed from his master Charles Christian and for his end-of-servitude pay which had not been paid.

Arthur Whitehead I1,2,3

M, ID# 3053, (a 1625 - 1655)
Father:Arthur Whitehead (30 Mar 1595 - )
Mother:Dorothy Lightowlers (a 1597 - )
Charts:Amanda Ola Weathers lineage
     Arthur Whitehead I was born a 1625 at Rochdale, Lancashire, England. He was the son of Arthur Whitehead and Dorothy Lightowlers. Arthur Whitehead I immigrated on 22 Mar 1643 to Virginia. He married 1st wife of Arthur Whitestead (Unknown) a 1647. Arthur Whitehead I married Katherine Ruffin in 1654 at Isle of Wight Co, Virginia. Arthur Whitehead I died in 1655 at Isle of Wight Co, Virginia.
      Arthur Whitehead was named as a headright on 22 Mar 1643 in Northampton Co, VA. He was listed as Arth. Whitehead, one of 9 persons transported into the colony by Obedience Robins, when Robins was granted 450 acres bounded by a former devdt. of said Robins on the south.1

From all indications Obedience Robins brought Arthur to this country on the Guiding Star from England. Obedience immigrated from the town of Long Buckby, Northamptonshire, England around 1620. Northamptonshire was not anywhere near Lancashire from which Arthur reportedly came.

Northampton Co, VA property and cattle records (John Bennett Boddie, Historical Southern Families, Vol. 3, p. 229, Vol. 4) showed Arthur in that county in 1650. Arthur was named in an inventory of an estate before 28 Aug 1650 in Northampton Co, VA. He was shown as Arthr. Whitehead on a list of "Debtes" due to the estate of Jno. Webster dec'd, taken into Court.2

Arthur was named in a court order in Oct 1650 Northampton Co, VA. It was ordered by the court that Arthur Whitehead shall have power to take into his custody & possession the estate of Ruben Williams dec'd (as greatest Creditor thereunto) provided that he put in security to the court and render a true & perfect account thereof.3,4

Arthur was named in a deposition on 28 Sep 1652 Northampton Co, VA. The deposition of John Norton, aged about 66 years, appeared in court on 28 September 1652 and saith: that about March last, more the time the Dutch ships were taken, then this dep't did see Robert Marryett and Arthur Whitehead at the said Marryett house in the night time (upon a Saturday) roll two hog heads of tobacco into the said Marryett dwelling house. The next day in the morning the said Robert Marryett knocked out the head of one of the hog heads where upon this examinent demanded of the said Marryett whose tobacco that was. He made answer that it was Barnes Johnson the Dutchman's tobacco. The said Robert Marryett and Arthur Whitehead took one hog head of the said tobacco and the other another hog head and divided the sum between them.5

Arthur was named in a lawsuit on 29 Sep 1652 Northampton Co, VA. A court order was granted upon consideration of the account of trespass this day commenced by Barnes Johnson plt against Robert Marryett and Auther Whitehead defts. It appeareth to the court by the declaratoin of the said Barnes Johnson and the deposition of John Norton that the said Robert Marryett and Arthur (according to the said Barnes John his order, fetched from John Charles, his tobacco house, to the said Marryett house (this winter) two hog heads of tobacco and disposed of them for their own uses (without the consent of the plantiff). Its ordered that the said Robert Marryett and Arthur Whitehead shall forthwith make payment unto the said Barnes Johnson two hog heads of tobacco (of the sum and weight that Barnes Johnson his tobacco was) with cask and all charges in the suit.6

Authur's statement was recorded in court records on 28 Apr 1653 Northampton Co, VA. In Accomacke in Virginia on 3 February 1653, be it know that I, Arthur Whitehead of Northampton County in Virginia, planter, have bargained and sold unto John Machell on the same county two brown cows aged about six years, marked cropt in both ears, underbitten in the left side, two slits in the right and by a dedge got another slit in the same ear, one black yearling heffer of the same mark, the aforesaid two brown cows, the one is called "Browne" and the other "Crumple Horn," on cow more a black one, goes by the name "Youth" marked cropt on both ears and 2 slits in the right ditto four yearlings, more, two of them marked with the flower de luce in the right ear and cropt and slit and underbitten in the leaft ear and slit in the right ear and cropt on both ears, and one more cropt and slit in the left ear, and underbitten and swallow tailed in the right ear for which three cows and five yearlings and ten hogs of the same mark as the two brown cows are and one sow out halved on both ears which said cattle and hogs, I, Arthur Whitehead, do hereby acknowledge to have received, approved and full satisfaction to contnet, and bind myself, my heirs, execs., admins or assignees that the bargain and sale is of saladity and sufficient in law unto the said John Macheele, his heirs, execs. or admins (with the increase which they may procure to him or his heirs or assignees forever, warranting the said three cows, five yearlings, eleven hogs from an claim, interest or challenge of any person or persons what so ever in testemony where of I have subscribed my hand, the day and year above written. Signed: Arthur Whitehead in the presence of Wm. Waters and Tho. Benthall. Recorded 20 May 1654 by Edm. Mathews, clk. cur.7

Because Arthur's name was not found in Accomac nor Northampton County records after 1653, he evidently sold his stock and left the Eastern Shore of Virginia. Arthur migrated to Isle of Wight Co, VA where married Katherine Ruffin and died shortly after.

Arthur was reportedly born about 1625 in Rochdale, Lancashire. Arthur's parents, brother, grandparents and great grandparents are presumptive based on the work of Bert Whitehead, but could not be proven by this researcher. Arthur's 1625 birth may be an estimate based on minimum potential age 18 at immigration, and Rochdale might be a guess based on there being many Whiteheads there, including Arthurs. Rochdale parish records online show two Arthur Whiteheads born to a Thomas and a John in 1606 and 1611 respectively, either of which could be our ancestor but would negate the reported ancestors included herein for Arthur.

      A 7 Nov 1667 Surry County, VA record states "I, James Atkinson, son of Thomas Atkinson, discharge Thos. Pitman as he marr(y)ing the relict of Thomas Atkinson, deceased, and of Thos. Gwaltney, deceased, from all manner of debts or gifts given me by father's will and also for Thomas Gwaltney, my father-in-law, be me by will or any other manner, signed: James Atkinson, Witnesses: Martin Lacye, Thos. Atkinson." James' statement is saying Thomas Pitman is marrying James' widowed mother who is also his widowed mother-in-law, and James was trying to preclude Thomas Pitman from any claim to anything given to James by his deceased father and deceased father-in-law.

This may be the James Atkinson who patented 216 acres in Isle of Wight on the third swamp of the Blackwater adjoining his brother Thomas’ line on 20 Apr 1687, because his nephew James Atkinson in the next generation was not known to have a brother named Thomas.

This may be the James who was a witness to the will of William Cook, Sr on 17 May 1698, along with Peter Vasser and Peter Hayes, or this James could be his nephew in the next generation.
