William , Jr. BOSTICK

Probate: SEP 1792 Person Co,, NC
Will: 10 APR 1790 Person Co,, NC

William Bostick, Jr. was born between 1711 and 1713 in New Kent County or Henrico County, Virginia. His will mentions his wife, Micha and Obediah Bostick, the son of his daughter, Keziah. But in Oct 1778, he gave Charles Bostick 168 acres "where William now lives" for "love and affection" and five shillings (Halifax Co VA Deed Bk 11, p.125). This is a strong indication that Charles was William's son. Also, in 1788
Charles bought 100 acres from William Harris and John Scoggin, which William Harris had bought from William Bostick three years earlier (Halifax Deed Bk 13, p.248, and 14, p.454). When William, Jr. sold the
100 acres in Halifax County in 1785, he moved to Caswell County, North Carolina, where Charles Bostick had owned land since at least 1778. The area where William and Charles lived was split into Person County in 1792.

Richard Scoggin JR.

Probate: 21 JUN 1770 Halifax Co,, VA
Will: 02 FEB 1770 Halifax Co,, VA

Most of Richard Jr.'s children are recorded in the Bristol Parish Register, in Prince George County, VA, where Richard Sr. had moved prior to 1714. In July 1724, Richard Jr. was granted 154 acres of "new land" in Prince George County, VA, on the north side of Hatcher's Run, below his house (Cavaliers & Pioneers Vol. III, p. 270). In September 1739, Richard Jr. was granted 327 acres in Prince George County, on the north side of Hatchers Run, on the Rocky Branch, at the mouth of a small branch of Hatchers Run below his house, adjacent to George Scogan, Clemmonds & Williams. Of this 327 acres, 154 acres had been previously granted to Richard in July 1724 (Cavaliers & Pioneers, Vol. IV, page 206). Also in September 1739, Richard Jr. was granted 328 acres in Brunswick County on the south side of Waqua Creek, adjacent to John Scogin (Cavaliers & Pioneers Vol. IV, p. 199). At some point this Richard moved to Halifax Co, VA, and left a will there in 1770. In it, he left three slaves, London, Sam, and Sife, to his "beloved wife Mary," and all the rest of
the estate, real and personal. Executors were Mary, his wife, and David Wall, his son-in-law. Witnesses were David Grant, John Foulkner, and John Dunkly.


Probate: 16 NOV 1780 Halifax Co,, VA
Will: 16 AUG 1777 Halifax Co,, VA

Mary's will mentions four daughters and three grandchildren: "Mary Scoggin, of Antrim Parish, 1) To son-in-law John Wilson, one-half of my land in NC where he now lives, also a negro, London; 2) To John Scoggin, illegitimate son of Ruth Bostick, the other one-half of the above
mentioned land, also one negro, Jan, his colt called Jockey, also one feather bed and furniture, one cow and calf; 3) To Sally Scoggin, sister of John Scoggin, one feather bed and furniture, one mare called Fly, one cow and calf; 4) I lend to my son-in-law Daniel Wall a negro, Sam, and after Wall's death, to his son, John; 5) To my son-in-law Charles Bostick, a negro woman, Ciss; 6) The remainder of my estate to be sold and the money in equal portions to my four sons-in-law, to wit: John Wilson, Daniel Wall, David Wall, and Charles Bostick; 7) I appoint my

Note: Martha and the other daughters have been assigned husbands based on names of husbands mentioned in Mary Scoggins will. Which daughter was married to which husband is unclear and awaiting further evidence.
Birth: 11 JUL 1729

Marriage 1 David WALL b: ABT 1730


Marriage 1 John WILSON b: ABT 1736


Richard was referenced in Surry County VA deed books as early as November 1689 (Deed Bk 4, p.123). He witnessed a deed of Jethro and Mary Barker to William Killingsworth in September 1690 (Deed Bk 4, p.158). In January 1695 he witnessed a deed of William and Margery Harvey to John Barker (Deed Bk 5, p.51). In March 1702, he witnessed several deeds of William and Susannah Short to George Rackill or Rachell (Deed Bk 5, p.265-266). In 1704 William Harvey left land to William Scoggin, son of Richard, suggesting that Richard was his son-in-law. In December 1714, Richard and Lucy, now of Bristol Parish in Prince George County, VA, sell to John Atkison of Lawnes Creek parish in Surry County, 100 acres where John Atkison now lives on the south side of Mill Swamp. The land was part of 400 acres granted to John Clark in May 1665. Richard may have died in Prince George County, but no record of this has been found.


In August 1734, John Clemmond (Clemmons) of Prince George Co, VA, was granted 376 acres of new land between Hatchers Run & the Rockey Branch, adjacent to John Nance, Samuel Sentell, & John Scoggins (Cavaliers & Pioneers Vol. IV, p. 47). In November 1734, John Scoggin of Prince George Co, VA, was granted 100 acres in Brunswick Co, VA, on the south side of Waqua Creek, at the mouth of a great Branch adjacent to Tabb (Cavaliers &
Pioneers Vol. IV, p. 63). In March 1739, James Hudson was granted 301acres in Brunswick County on the south side of Waqua Creek, down the great Branch along the road, adjacent to John Scoggin & Tabb (Cavaliers & Pioneers Vol. IV, p. 185). In September 1739, Richard Scogin, Jr. was granted 328 acres in Brunswick County on the south side of Waqua Creek,
adjacent to John Scoggin (Cavaliers & Pioneers Vol. IV, p. 199).


George Scoggin came to Lancaster Co, VA in 1653, his passage from England paid by William Tidner (Cavaliers and Pioneers by Nugent).

William HARVEY

Probate: 05 SEP 1704 Brunswick Co.,, VA
Will: 10 JAN 1703 Brunswick Co.,, VA

William Harvey probably arrived in Virginia by 1668, if not earlier. Mr. Francis Campfield was given 314 acres in Glouster County, VA, in April 1668, for the transport of six people: "William Harvy, Jno. Roberts, Rich. Peake, Nic. Reinolds, Stephen Pore, and Cha. Gualter." (Cavaliers & Pioneers, Vol. II, p. 36, and Patent Book 6, p. 130 in the original record).

William Harvey served on a Grand Jury in Surry County in 1675 ( Surry Co. Will Book II)

William Harvey appears in a list of tithables for Surry County in 1678.

In January 1695 William "Harvie" of Southwarke Parish sold to John Barker of the same... 235 acres (part of a patent for 335 acres granted to Thomas Cotton in April 1683 and by him sold to William Harvey in November 1685) in Southwarke Parish on the Otterday Swamp and bounded by said Harvey, Jethro Barker and the Holly Bush Island. (Margery Harvey, wife of William Harvey, relinquished her Right of Dower.) Witnesses were Benjamin Harrison, Nathaniel Harrison, Timothy Issell, and Richard Scoging (Surry Co VA Deed Bk 5, p.51).

There is no further record of Margery after 1695, and William's wife in his will was Sara, so he must have re-married. In March 1702 William Short sold land to William Harvey (no further details available, Deed Bk 5, p.266). William Harvey left a will in Surry County, VA in 1704. He left "To wife, Sara, my land and Plantation for life and then to William Scogging [thought to be his grandson] ye son of Richard Scogging of Prince George. To John Scogging [thought to be his son-in-law] of Surry for life then to Frances Scogging his daughter, a chest that was her grandmother's." There was also a bequest to Joan Adkins of Surry Co. Witnesses were William Killingsworth, Nath. Phillips, and Thomas Adkins. In June 1714 William Scogin of Bristol Parish in Prince George County sold to Clement Lanier of Southwarke Parish in Surry County for 1 shilling... land above the head of upper Chipoakes Creek between Thomas Farmer and Capt. Cocke. Land was sold by Samuel Swann and wife, Sarah Swann, to William Harvey in July 1689, who willed it to said Scoggin. Witnesses were Robert Nicholson, Jr., and Joshua Nicholson (Deed Bk 6, p.192). In March 1718 John Scoging and
daughter, Frances Scoging, of Prince George County sold to William Mixon of Surry County for 5 shillings... 100 acres in Southwarke Parish (formerly land of William Harvey, decd., who gave it to John Scoging during his life). Land is part of a patent to William Short. Witnesses were John Tyus and John Aviris (Deed Bk 7, p.163).

In Feb 1719, William Mixon and wife Elizabeth sold 120 acres to William Short. 100 acres of this land was formerly owned by William Harvey, deceased, who willed it to John Scoging and his daughter Frances Scoging, who sold it to the said Mixon. (Surry Co. Deeds 1715-1730, p. 246) That William Harvey was Lucy's father is not proven. It is based
on circumstantial evidence from his will, from deed records in Surry County, and from the process of elimination. Although William does not mention relationships in his will, the simplest and most logical explanation of it is that he intended to leave an inheritance to his two grandchildren, William Scoggin, and Frances Scoggin.

If that was the case, then John Scoggin was married to one of his daughters, whose name is unknown. The other daughter must have married Richard Scoggin, father of William. From other records we know that Richard Scoggin married someone named Lucy, so she must have been Lucy Harvey.

While there are other possibilities, such as that John and Richard Scoggin were William Harvey's brothers-in-law, rather than his sons, that seems less likely, and more of a stretch in terms calculating everyone's age. We know that William Harvey must have been at least 16 years old in 1678, since he appeared in a tithable list that year. That
would place his birth at 1658. But since he had grown grandchildren in 1704, a more reasonable guess would be that he was 65 or 70 years old, placing his birth around 1734-39. On the other hand, there is no record of the two Scoggin men until a generation later than William Harvey, suggesting that they were much younger. And there is no record in early Virginia Land Patents of their immigration, so it is possible they were born in Virginia. George Scoggin, thought to be their father, was in Lancaster Co, VA at least by 1653, so his sons after that date would have been born in Virginia. If they were not his sons-in-law, then who would they have been? It seems likely that two Scoggin brothers married two
daughters of William Harvey. Final proof of this is lacking.
Marriage 2 Sara b: SAY 1632

Frances HARVEY

In Feb 1719, William Mixon and wife Elizabeth sold 120 acres to William Short. 100 acres of this land was formerly owned by William Harvey, deceased, who willed it to John Scoging and his [William's] daughter Frances Scoging, who sold it to the said Mixon. (Surry Co. Deeds 1715-1730, p. 246)
