William Slocomb (senior)1

M, ID# 7114, (c 1750 - )
Father:Thomas Slocomb I (c 1702 - )
     William Slocomb (senior) was born c 1750 at Accomac, Accomack Co, Virginia.1 He was the son of Thomas Slocomb I. William Slocomb (senior) married Anne Banister on 31 Oct 1797 at Accomack Co, Virginia. William Slocomb (senior) married Lavinia Corbin, daughter of Ralph Corbin and Rachel (Unknown), on 28 May 1804 at Accomack Co, Virginia.
      William Slocomb, also known as William senior, was on the 1787 list of tithables in Accomack Co, VA. He was shown as William Sloram a white male over age 21 and Susanah Crippen was charged with tax for him.

William was listed as head of household between age 16 and 26 in the 1800 census of Accomack Parish, Accomack CO, VAh, and he was the only Slocomb in the county. Listed with William were 1 male age 0-10, 2 females age 10-16, 1 female age 16-26, and 5 slaves.

William married for the second time in 1804 with Richard Grinalds as security on the marriage license bond.

Two William Slocumbs were in the 1810 Accomack Co census: one was the above William Slocomb senior from Accomack Parish and the other was William Slocomb (1782-1817), his nephew from St George's Parish. William senior was shown as over 45 years and 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 active in aquiring land near the Maryland – Virginia border. Additonal information on these acquisitions is in the MilesFiles by Moody Miles:

31 Dec 1799 bought land from John Logan from the estate of John Morrison. William bought 109 acres part of tract A168 west of New Church, Accomack Co, VA just below the MD-VA line and a few miles south of Pocomoke City, MD. This is where the Slocombs lived and there is a Slocomb Road in the vicinity, between New Church and the Pocomoke River.

31 Dec 1799 William Slocomb was deeded the right to cut and take timber in the Green Swamp in tract A169 near New Church, Accomack Co, VA by Thomas and Elizabeth Custis and 29 April 1802 William Slocumb bought this land from Thomas Custis and his wife Elizabeth.

2 Jun 1802 William Slocomb senior began purchasing pieces of the George Holden - Nathaniel Burwell estates. Because two of the owners were underage women, those tracts had to re-conveyed in full when the women, Elizabeth Holden and Martha Haines, reached the age of majority. William Taliaferro had married Elizabeth Holden and William Robinson had married Martha Haynes. William M Beavans had also purchased from the estate and resold to William Slocomb in 1804.
--5 June 1804 William Mills Beavans deeded 213 acres of tract A58 of "the Dames Plantation" on the south side of the mouth of Onancock Creek in Accomack Co, Virginia with water Grist mill, two horses, three steers, four beds and furniture, two slaves. The Dames plantation was evidently referring to the land of Madame Ann Holden, who was the step-mother of George Holden, deceased. The land was bounded by lands of Gillett Mills and Massey Burton(?) heirs, the Green Swamp and westwardly by the lands of James Melvin. Dames plantation is appparently where William Slocomb settled with his family.
--14 Jun 1802 William bought some of this tract A58, south side of the mouth of Onancock Creek, Accomack Co, VA from Nathaniel Burwell estatet; then on 31 Jan 1803 William Slocomb Senr gave the Nathaniel Burwell estate a deed of release.
--25 Dec 1807 Accomack Co, VA final deed of land originally belonging to Elizabeth Holden now age 21 and the wife of Richard Taliaferro. Originally conveyed in 14 Jun 1802 to William Slocumb. Location not provided except Accomack Co, VA. The sale also appears on the index, dated three days after the deed.
--19 Aug 1809 Accomack Co, VA final deed of land originally belonging to Martha Haines now age 21 and the wife of William Robinson. Originally conveyed in 14 Jun 1802 to William Slocumb. Location not provided except Accomack Co, VA.
--10 Mar 1810 Accomack Co, VA. Woodman Bloxom (who was also part of the Martha Haines Robinson deed above) and his wife Nancy sold 17 acres of Green Swamp, Accomack Parish, Accomack Co, VA bounded by Joesph Melvin's land to William Slocumb.

Other land acquisitions outside the Burwell estate:

7 Feb 1812 David Delastious deeded William Slocumb senior 51 acres near Pokomoke, Accomack Co, VA bounded by the lands of Elisha Garret deceased, Levin Wilkerson, Walter Bayne Esq. and Joseph Powell.


William wrote a will on 8 Apr 1817 at Accomack Co, VA. "I divide my plantation where I now live adjoining John Massey, Woodman Bloxom, John Logan, James Melvin & Walter Bayne's heirs. To son Samuel Slocomb the part of the land where I now live on the south side of the division line and Negro man Jerome.

CPT Thomas Todd II1,2

M, ID# 7132, (1660 - 16 Jan 1724)
     CPT Thomas Todd II was born in 1660 at Gloucester, Gloucester Co, Virginia.1 He married Elizabeth Bernard a 1679 at England.1 CPT Thomas Todd II died on 16 Jan 1724 at 'Toddsbury', Ware Parish, Gloucester Co, Virginia.1 He was buried at Ware Parish, Gloucester Co, Virginia.
      Originally from Virginia, the Todds were prosperous landowners among the first in the region to purchase land in Baltimore Co, MD. Thomas Todd relocated from Gloucester Co, VA to what became known as Todd's Inheritance in Eastern Baltimore Co, MD in 1664; his farm originally contained 1,150 acres and was deeded to him from William Batten and Thomas Thomas who secured the original patent from Lord Baltimore. For over 300 years the Todd family lived and worked the land, passing the property from father to son for 10 generations. The land was their inheritance, and in 1765 the family farms were combined into a single holding named Todd's Inheritance.

Todd's Inheritance played a key roll in the Battle of North Point and helped prevent the British from capturing Baltimore during the War of 1812. From Todd's Inheritance, with its strategic view of the Chesapeake, American mounted sentries kept watch for invading British forces. Following the battle, the retiring British burned the original Todd home, and the current home dates from two years later in 1816.

The property also speaks to early religious practices. The area's first regular Presbyterian services were held in Thomas Todd's home in 1714. The Todd cemetery, where Thomas' wife Elizabeth was buried in 1717, is located on the site. The family cemetery is still used.

Thomas was a merchant, farmer and sea captain. As slave owners, the Todds cultivated tobacco and later switched to more dependable grains, vegetables and fruit. The family was also involved in shipbuilding and the maritime trades.

Thomas' burial was at Toddsbury but his tombstone was moved to Ware Episcopal Church Cemetery, Gloucester Co, VA.

Todd's marriage and children are based on unsourced ancestry.com family trees, and because each tree had added children outside a core set, all the proposed children are included here until proven, but this researcher believes some children belong to other Todd families. It is critical to determine is whether Thomas' wife Jane or his wife Elizabeth is the mother of our ancestor Elizabeth Scott.
