Mary Bosman1

F, ID# 453, (c 1662 - )
Father:William "Will" Bosman / Bozman I (c 1625 - )
Mother:Eleanor "Ellen" White (1635 - 1694)
     Mary Bosman was born c 1662 at Accomack Co, Virginia. She was the daughter of William "Will" Bosman / Bozman I and Eleanor "Ellen" White.
      Mary Bosman is thought by this researcher to be the child of Eleanor instead of Bridget. Mary was on the list of children that came to Maryland in 1663 with William Bosman and his second wife Eleanor. Although Mary's siblings births were all re-recorded in Maryland to show their step-mother Eleanor as their mother, Mary's birth was not re-recorded. This omission led this researcher to conclude Mary was likely already legally the daughter of William's second wife Eleanor. Although Mary was not included in Eleanor's 1692 will when Mary would have been age 30, possibly Mary was deceased.

Furthermore, in this researcher's opinion there was insuffienct time in the 15 months between when Mary's older surviving sibling George was born on 18 Apr 1659 and Bridget's death on 20 July 1660 for Bridget to have become pregnant with Mary and died in childbirth.

William Slocomb (junior)1,2,3,4

M, ID# 467, (11 May 1782 - 27 Feb 1815)
Father:Lieutenant Thomas F. Slocomb II1 (c 1745 - b 28 Sep 1784)
Mother:Susanna Custis (2 Apr 1746 - 31 Aug 1800)
Charts:Margaret Custis Russell * lineage
     William Slocomb (junior) was born on 11 May 1782 at Accomack Co, Virginia. He was the son of Lieutenant Thomas F. Slocomb II and Susanna Custis.1 William Slocomb (junior) died on 27 Feb 1815 at Accomack Co, Virginia, at age 32. His estate was probated on 30 Jun 1817 at Accomack Co, Virginia.
      William Slocomb was known as junior to distinguish him from his uncle of the same name William Slocomb senior of Accomack Parish, near New Church.

William junior was named in his father Thomas' will on 31 Jul 1784 in Accomack Co, VA and was to be maintained and educated, implying he was a young son. William was also named in the 12 Jan 1806 will of Thomas Wise, his brother, from St. George Parish, Accomack Co, VA.

William was listed as a head of household in the 1800 census at Accomack Parish, Accomack Co, VA as age 16-26 (born circa 1774-1784). Listed with him were 1 male age 0-10; 2 females age 10-16; and 1 female age 16-26; and 5 slaves. He was the only Slocomb listed in Accomack County.

Both William and his uncle by the same name were on the 1810 census. William junior was noted in the St. George Parish 1810 census as age 26-45 (born 1765-1784), and listed with him were 2 males age 10-16, 1 female age 10-16, 2 females age 16-26, and 14 slaves, perhaps inherited from his mother. Because William was not known to be married or own land this is a lot of people in his household. Some of William's siblings had died and so some people in the household could be his nephews and nieces; for example, the three children under age 16 could be the Blackstone orphans, if they would be of the correct age at that time. If William married and had legitimate children he would have left a will or there would have been some sort of estate settlement; if he owned land, slaves or personal property, or had children or a wife, someone would have been appointed to administer their estate. There is no marriage record for him in Accomack Co, VA; Northampton Co, VA or Worcester Co, MD.

The other William on the 1810 census was William Slocomb senior of Accomack Parish, age over 45 years (born before 1765). Listed with him were 2 males, age 0-10; 2 males, age 10-16; 1 female, age 0-10; 1 female, age 16-26; 1 female, age 26-45; and 7 slaves.

William was our ancestor Margaret Custis Russell's father and appeared in Accomack Co court on 31 May 1813 with his uncle William Slocomb senior and John Snead, as his two securities, to answer the paternity suit of Margaret's mother, Diadamia Russell. In court William did not deny paternity, which was commonly done to avoid bastard children making claims against the estate at their father's death. William did not show up in court on 31 Aug 1818 for nonpayment of child support.

William died in 1817, after which on 14 Jan 1819 the total of Margaret Custis Russell's owed child support payments were paid by John Snead "as security for William Slocomb;" the record did not say 'as security for William Slocomb, deceased' though, and John Snead was not a witness on William's will or security on the probate of his will. The relationship between John Snead and the Slocombs may link through the Custis family. There were at least six John Sneads living in Accomack Co, VA during this time frame, although no intermarriages with the Slocombs have been noted; three John Sneads were contemporaries of William Slocomb's father Thomas, who married a Custis, and all three of those John Sneads had relationships (legal witness, neighbors) with William Custis.

George Russell1,2

M, ID# 475, (1653 - c 1692)
Charts:Margaret Custis Russell * lineage
     George Russell was born in 1653 at England. He immigrated b 1672. He married Sarah Milby, daughter of John Milby I and Thomasine (Unknown), c 1683 at Accomack Co, Virginia. George Russell died c 1692. His estate was probated on 14 Jun 1693 at Somerset Co, Maryland.
      George Russell may be the same-named man who sailed from Bristol, England to Virginia in 1663 as an apprentice and was most likely indentured for seven years; sons even as young as ten were sent overseas as apprentices. A George Russell arrived in Maryland in 1671, which would align with the end of a seven-year apprenticeship.

Our ancestor George Russell was named as a headright on a certificate granted for Capt Daniel Jenifer's patent of 800 acres in Accomack Co, VA on 17 Sep 1672. In 1673 and again in 1677 he possibly was again the George noted as a headright for others' Virginia land patents; using and reusing people's names to acquire land via headright claims was a common practice.

George was living in Accomack Co, VA in 1676. At about age 24 he gave a sworn deposition in open court on 19 Jul 1676 in Accomack Co, VA: "About a month ago at the house of Jno. Coale, Henry Read said, "People might say what they would, but Maj. West, as he heard, had been as great a rook as any in the county, and for ought he knew, might be still." Signed on 19 July 1676, by George (X) Russell before Jno. Washbourne."

At age 24 George gave another deposition on 18 Jun 1677 in Accomack Co, VA: "One night last April he heard Mrs. Charleton correcting her maid, "it being dark and no light in the room." He heard Mary Windham and Mrs. Charleton "make a great crying out." When Mrs. Charleton called Russell to assist her, he said "he believed she wanted none." The next morning Mrs. Charleton's arm was black and blue; she claimed it was done by her servant during the night. Russell said he had often seen "Mary hold the stick when her mistress was correcting of her so to escape from her." Signed 18 June 1677, George (X) Russell." George must have been living in the Charletons' home in 1677.

George was on the tax list in 1679 in Accomack Co, VA with 3 tithes and in 1681 with 2 tithes.

George was named in a deposition on 18 May 1682 in Accomack Co, VA done by William White, Jr., aged about 18 years: "Last March when White was looking for some animals near the field at Craddocks belonging to Mr. Thomas Teakle, Phillip and John Lecat, Jr., came and asked him to help look for their mother's horse. White went with them into Matchetan's Neck, which belonged to Widow Huit; they met Joseph Milby, George Russell and Thomas Jenkins and found the horse in with a group of mares belonging to Thomas Hall. They tried to catch the horses, and as they tried, John Milby's dog followed along, barking until they drove the horses into the creek, at which time Joseph Milby "checked the said dog and brought him off. And then the horses run by us and the dog run after them again." When the horses ran over the gut, the dog stayed behind until the dogs with David Davinson started barking at the horses. Then Milby's dog joined the others, one of which caught a horse by the hamstring as it was going up the bank. "Joseph said it was ten to one that the dogs would have one of the horses down, and the said Joseph Milby said that the dog was a devil when he was hot." The barking dogs followed the horses till they were out of sight; White, Milby, George Russell and Thomas Jenkins went around the head of the gut and met David Davinson on the other side. Russell, Jenkins and John Lecat, Jr., crossed Widow Huitt's plantation; Phillip Lecat, Milby, David and White stayed behind to catch Milby's mother's horse. They found the horses again in the point field, but White did not see any dogs; when the horses were driven down the branch, the dogs met them again. A little later Milby said that they had gotten one down. He called to David and said that a horse was dead. David replied, "Your dog hath killed it." Joseph said, "I have but one dog." White saw some blood on the water. Signed and sworn in open court on 18 May 1682, by William White."

George was named in a related deposition by David Alford aged about 27 years on 18 May 1682 in Accomack Co, VA: "Last March, David's master (Richard Jones, Jr.) ordered him to look after his cattle in Jones' absence. When David heard the barking of dogs in Mattcheton's Neck, he went toward the noise. Once there, he saw Joseph Milby, Wm. White, Jr., George Russell and Thomas Jenkins. When asked their business, Milby said "that they were catching his mother's horse" and asked David if he would lend a hand. Though he had been in the field already, David went with them. When David, Milby, White and Phillip Lecat were near the farther side of the field, the saw several horses and mares. As they were driving the horses between the creek and the fences, David fell behind the rest and noticed about half a spoonful of blood in a hoofprint. When David caught up with the group, Milby told him to "look well in the branches, for there was a creature dead." Milby, White and Lecat went up the branch and left David, who found a mare lying in the water. He "took hold of the said mare's head and looked upon her and lifted up her head and found that there was breath in her, and so [I] took the said mare by the tail and pulled her from the water until she was almost dry and tied her tail to the stake of a fence." When he looked under her ears, he saw holes, like she had been bitten by dogs. David knew that the mare belonged to Thomas Hall, who often asked David to help catch her to be branded. Signed and sworn in open court 18 May 1862, by David Allford."

George served on a jury on 19 Feb 1682/83 in Accomack Co, VA. He was on the tax list in 1684, 1685 and 1686 in Accomack Co, VA with 2 tithes in Mr. Bally's Precinct.

George leased Craddock Plantation in Accomack Co, VA for three years. He then became a defendant in a court case on 2 Dec 1684 in Accomack Co, VA when Widow Micol Hewit sued George Russell and John Nassay for non-performance of an agreement they made to lease her plantation at Craddock for three years. Owen Collonon and Arnold Harrison were appointed to view and report on the damage done by neglect of the fencing and the damage alleged to be done in the orchard by cattle destroying the trees.

In 1684 George moved to a part of Somerset Co, MD which later became Worcester Co, MD. On 10 Sep 1684 he acquired a 400-acre land patent from Col William Stevens for Mill Branch on the east side of Chesapeake Bay, south of the Pocomoke River, and a little above Mattapony in Somerset Co, MD. Mattapony was associated with Bogerternorten (Boca del norte) Watkin's Point at the mouth of the Pokomoke River. Four years later for 3,000 pounds tobacco George and his wife Sarah sold to widow Mary Major from Accomack Co, VA on 11 Sep 1688 200 acres of Mill Branch, being the northern half of the 400 acres beginning at the Pocomoke River and extending according to its length and breadth unto Thomas Major's land, the son of William Major, deceased. The other 200 acres was inherited by his son Samuel.

George was named in a court order on 12 May 1686 in Accomack Co, VA and ordered to pay Charles Holden for two pair of French falls shoes [boots with high drooping cuffs] and court costs.

George was a defendant in a court case on 15 Feb 1686/87 in Accomack Co, VA when Micol Hewet and George Smith sued Russell for breach of covenants to the value of 10,000 lbs tobacco and was referred to court. Russell produced several certificates showing the performance of the agreement, but the attorney of Hewet and Smith claimed the certificates were invalid. The case was continued to the next court so Russell's witnesses could appear in court. This was the last time George Russell was found in Accomack Co, VA, Court Order Books.

On 20 Mar 1687/88 George acquired 200 acres called New Yarmouth, a ridge of land between the Pokomoke River and back in the woods from the seaside, in present day Worcester Co, MD but then in Somerset Co, MD. George died without making any disposition of this land which was inherited by his son Samuel Russell.

In 1689 George became constable of Mattapony District. He died intestate circa 1692 in Somerset Co, MD. William Reed and John Tarr appraised his estate, valued it at £14.2.10 and the inventory of his estate was filed on 14 June 1693 in that county.

Samuel Russell (weaver) died b 23 Feb 1762 at Accomack Co, Virginia.
      Samuel Russell may have been born in Accomack Co, VA or in Somerset Co, MD because in the time frame he was born his father was living in Accomack Co, paying personal tax in Accomack Co, buying land in Somerset Co, and moving from Accomack Co to Somerset Co. His father George was probably going back and forth between the two adjacent counties, going up and down the Pocomoke River, which starts in Virginia and goes up stream into Maryland.

After Samuel's father died, his mother had her three children bound out on 28 Jun 1692 in Somerset Co, MD and gave custody of her children jointly to her mother and her brother, stating Samuel would reach independence at age seventeen.

As the eldest son, Samuel inherited his father's real estate which consisted of the remaining 200 acres of Mill Branch and 200 acres of New Yarmouth, both in Somerset Co, MD. When he came of age, George moved to Somerset Co, MD.

George and his wife Ann sold his Somerset Co tracts on 3 Jun 1713 and 11 Nov 1720 respectively, the latter lands being traded in 1720 for 100 acres in the vicinity of Hunting Creek, Accomac Co, VA. On 3 Jun 1713 Samuel sold "Thomas Murphey 200 acres of Mill Branch, and the said Murphey for caluable consideration did sell and convey the said 200 acres to James Linzey."

On 4 Oct 1720 Peter and Lucretia Claywell of Accomack Co, VA sold Samuel 100 acres of tract A108, Hunting Creek in Accomack Co, VA, bounded on the north side with Timber Creek, on the east side by the land of Richard Lewis, on the south side by a place called the Mill pond slash and west on the marsh, and the said Russell is also to have the whole privilege in the marsh with as right and title as I the sidd Claywell now have." On 11 Nov 1720 Samuel sold Peter Claywell the New Yarmouth tract. Samuel then moved to Accomac Co, VA in 1720 where he was noted as a planter and weaver. He served on a jury on 9 Jan 1723/24 in Accomack Co, VA.

Samuel was summoned to appear in court on 6 Aug 1734 Accomack Co, VA. By virtue of a receipt signed by coroner James Wishart (gentleman), David Booth was committed to the county jail on suspicion of killing Howell Glading. Booth was brought before the court, which sent him back to prison and set the following Tuesday for his examination at which time Ralph Corbin, Edward Baily, John Watson, Comfort Clark, Samuel Russell and John Brown were to be summoned to testify against the prisoner.

Samuel was a defendant in a court case on 10 Jan 1737/38 in Accomack Co, VA, however the action of trespass, assault and battery brought by William Rew and his wife Mary against Samuel Russel was dismissed.

Samuel conveyed the Hunting Creek property to his son Milby as a gift on 9 Apr 1753 while reserving a life estate; because Samuel's wife Ann did not sign this deed as a release of dower, she may have been deceased and "my wife" noted in Samuel's 1757 will may have been as second wife. "Samuell Russell, of Accomack Co, VA, planter, (no wife mentioned) to his son Milby Russell of said County, planter, a deed of gift. A certain tract or parcel of land, plantation & marsh whereon I, the said Samuel Russell do now dwell, containing by estimation 100 acres, more or less, situate in the county aforesaid on the Bayside & adjoining the land of Wonney Rew, John Lewis and Arthur Barnes, reserving the occupation of the said land during the term of my natural live &c. Signed 9 Apr 1753 and recorded 29 May 1753. If he remarried it would have been after this deed was signed.

Samuel's will dated 10 July 1757 and proved 23 Feb 1762 in Accomac Co, VA disposed of his personal property and named his wife and children. "To son Son Solomon Russell two cows, and with that cut him off from any other part of my estate, neither him nor his heirs. To son Salathiel Russell and to my son Andrew Russell and to my daughter Mary Mason and my daughter Rachel Pruit each of them 1 shilling, and with that cut them off from coming in for any other part of my estate, neither they nor their heirs.

Milby Russell I1,2,3,4,5

M, ID# 478, (c 1722 - a 1785)
Father:Samuel Russell (weaver) (1685 - b 23 Feb 1762)
Mother:Anne (Unknown) (c 1695 - b 9 Apr 1753)
Charts:Margaret Custis Russell * lineage
     Milby Russell I was born c 1722 at Accomack Co, Virginia. He was the son of Samuel Russell (weaver) and Anne (Unknown). Milby Russell I married Abigail Lewis, daughter of Sheriff John Lewis III and Elizabeth Melson, c 1748. Milby Russell I married (Unknown) Crowson, daughter of William Crowson I and Comfort Littleton, b 1756. Milby Russell I died a 1785 at Accomac, Accomack Co, Virginia.
      Milby Russell was a farmer who lived in Accomac Co, VA. Milby was the plaintiff in a 31 Jan 1749/50 Accomack Co case against Thomas Lewis [likely Milby's relative] for trespass, assault and battery; a jury found Lewis guilty on 29 Aug 1750 and awarded Russell £3:15:00 in damages plus costs. Russell's witnesses were Thomas Kelly (two days), Andrew Russell, Salathiel Russell and Anne Russell (one day each). Members of the jury were Eburn Bird, Jacob Badger, Jonas Belote, Fisher Bradford, John Rodgers, Richard Hinman, Southey Simpson, Bowman Cropper, Bartholomew Twiford, William Cook, John Morgin and John Morgin Jr.

Milby was given a 200-acre tract A108 called Hunting Creek in Accomac Co, VA, including the plantation and marsh by his father Samuel Russell in 1753. Milby farmed from 1753 until 1782. In 1780 he had up to four horses and ten cattle, depending on the tax roll list inventory.

Between 1749 and 1757 there were no known children born, so Abigail Lewis may have died and Milby may have then married Ms. Crowson.

Milby was security on a bond for his son Andrew on 31 Jul 1764 in Accomack Co, VA when upon the information from James Pettigrew with wife Leah after witnesses testified, Russell was taken into custody until posting a one year £50 bond for keeping the peace. On that same date Andrew Russell, Milby Russell, Benjamin Pruit and Benjamin Royal each posted £50 for Andrew’s keeping the peace.

Milby deeded 100 acres of tract A108 at Hunting Creek adjoining the land of Wonney Rew, John Lewis and John Barnes to his son Robert as a gift on 15 Oct 1783 -- reserving to himself "the use and occupation of same durying my natural life" as his father before him had done. Milby left no will.
