Thomas WALKE

Princess Anne Deed Bk 04:541 in 1734: Thomas Walke, merchant who came from
Barbados married Mary daughter of Anthony Lawson and had three children:
Thomas, Anthony and Mary. Alice G. Walter's Moseley and Throwgood Charts.
VA Mag. of Hist. and Biog. (ca 1897/8) 5:139-153: Thomas came to Lower Norfolk
Co. 1662 from Barbados and rec'd at least two land patents including Patent
Book 8:308. Page 141, Vol 5 of McIntosh's Abstract book: their 2nd son,
Anthony #5147 first marriage to Mary #3888.
Will Norfolk Deed Bk 05:212 is listed on page 147-9 of Brief Abstract of Lower
Norfolk Co. and Norfolk Co. Wills 1637-1710 1914 VA Colonial Dames book (later
called Vol.1?) by Charles Fleming McIntosh. Lists children Thomas, Anthony,
Mary, his siblings, probably allof Barbados, Ann Chambers with her children,
other siblings, Robert, Margarett, Margery. Others mentioned, the only
significant one is apparently #3987 "unto Wm Moseley Sr....unto Margarett
Moseley the wife of Wm Moseley"
6 nov 2000 letter from Jane Stubbs Bailey 9502 Good Lion Rd Columbia
MD 21045-3948 citing Chowan Deed Bk W-1: 39 of 25 Feb 1702/3 and p. 66 of 29
June 1706. p.39: Margaret m Hoffman abstract #77 mentions col edward moseley
of pr ann co VA only surviving executor of mr thomas walke...merchant of co. of
norfolk in Va. decd. Will Druckenfield was to pay Moseley money at Walke's
former residence on Eastern branch of Eliz River in [Princess Anne Co.] in Va.
p.66 abstract #134 says similar things but is much, much less detailed;
Forsythe concludes that Walke and Moseley were basically absentee owners of NC
land. More importantly, there is no evidence of a connection from the Princess
AnneCo Va Moseleys to the famous Col. Edward Moseley of NC who was ca. 1710
prominent in NC politics--IN SPITE OF THE FACT THAT COL. EDWARD OF NC was at
one time of edenton, chowan co NC--and reportedly buried or a stone to him in
St Paul's episcopal church in Edenton;

Elizabeth SAYER

Adventurers, p. 436, says she married Nathaniel Newton, Sheriff of Norfolk County 1730-31.
Probably born to an earlier marriage of Charles Sayer before Margaret Lawson. Eliz is called pembroke in her husband's will abstract but must be same as Eliz because her father still mentions her in DB 5: 504 of Nov 1741 as living.  Her children are mentioned as unmarried in DB 7: 661 of 1754, but 2 girls by same names as her daughters are given surname THOROWGOOD in DB 3: 260 of 1719.

!1956 LDS film 0001037: RE: Mary Gookin Moseley, says her mum Sarah Offley
bapt 16 Apr 1609 at St Benet Fink church London. MAYBE?:we had St Benet Grace
church, whereas Mousley's St Benet Fink church would imply Offleys knew Burnet
family (of that church in London) i.e the family of Susqana Burnet, wife of Wm
Moseley Sr!
Va Patent bk 5: 337(341) still refers to John Gookins landing place in March
1662 in the present Va. Beach, VA town near where Moseleys lived. So Gookins
were remembered and may have maintained family ties after move to Nansemond Co.

Anthony Lawson's wife, formerly wife of Capt Wm Moseley deceased and daughter

of Capt. Wm Moseley...and brother of the whole blood unto Wm and John

Capt John Gookin. Witnesses Lunaster? Lovett, Wm Burroughs, Robt Richmond,

Norfolk Co. VA Deed Bk 5: 216, Mar 30,1693/4 John Mosely in apparently his
first adult deed divided grandfather John Gookin's 640 ac with his brother Wm
Moseley. The land was on the Wigtown shore of the Linhaven River.
  Richmond Times Dispatch 22 Mar 1914 says Mary Gookin's mom, Sarah Offley
had a third  husband Francis Yeardley, son of Sir George Yeardley. Sarah's
tomb in Lynnhaven Parish Churchyard "Ye body of Capt John Gooking and also ye
body of Mrs Sarah Yardley, who was wife to Capt. Adam Thorowgood, Capt. John
Gooking & Collonell Francis Yardley". At her death she was sometimes
mistakenly called Mrs. Frances Yeardly and thus has been confused with Frances
Yeardley (#4530), d/o Argall Yeardley who m. Lt. Col. Adam Thorowgood 2nd.

Robert Peter MOSELEY Lt.

[moseley1.ged]

Born in that part of Henrico County which became Chesterfield County.
On 5 Feb 1738 he chose his uncle William Moseley as his guardian.
  Robert Moseley  purchased 798 acres of land in Buckingham County on 23 Oct
1777, and on 25 Dec 1784, obtained 120 acres in Hanover County.  Together with
other purchases he had a total of 1118 acres, 200 of which were conveyed to
Arthur Moseley on 22 Mar 1790.
!Henrico Co Va MOSELEY notebooks: John Hale Stutesman,"Arthur Moseley (--1736)"
etc mss. Acc. No. 1150-1162, Chesterfield Historical Soc., Chesterfield, Va.
  They were married by Rev. Douglas, and recorded in the "Douglas Register".
Robert and Magdalin had 14 children. After he disposed of land in Gloucester
Co. Robert bought a few thousand acres in Buckingham Co. VA in Jan 1758, and
built a house, Willow Lake. The house burned around 1890. Part of the Willow
Lake property is now owned by Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Speas.
  A farmer and a large land owner, he along with his cousin Richard Moseley
owned between them 900 acres on the boundary of Chesterfield and Powhatan
counties, near Midlothian, Virginia.  All of Robert's land was in
Chesterfield, which in 1777 he sold to Judge Fleming for 1500 pounds currency.
Richard apparently also sold all or part of his holdings to Judge Fleming, who
then combined the property and known as Summerville.  He owned this place
before he came to Buckingham.
    Summerville is about 3 miles from Midlothian on the Southern railroad (in
1900), and about eighteen miles from Richmond.  The house was still standing
in 1900, and described as a plain Virginia farmhouse of seven or eight rooms,
and situated on a high hill.  The land contained formerly about 900 acres but
had become worn out.  From William Fleming's estate, the home was bought by Dr.
Phillip Hancocke's father.  He was a descendant of the old Hancockes who were
related to the early Moseleys. Chesterfield County, Deed Book 3, page 190:
THIS INDENTURE, made the seventeenth day of October, in the year of Christ one

Arthur Richard MOSELEY Captain

[moseley1.ged]

Arthur Moseley served as Orderly Sergeant, VA troops, Militia.  His widow
Sallie Perkins applied for pension.
Application of Arthur Guyon Moseley to SAR contained the original of the
following letter:
"Department Of The Interior, Bureau Of Pensions, Washington, D.C., April 16,
1910,  Mr. Arthur G. Moseley, 510 Times Building, St. Louis, Mo.
Sir:    In reply to your personal inquiry of the 15th instant, you are advised
that from the papers on file in this Bureau it appears that Arthur Moseley of
Buckingham County, Virginia, entered the service early in February, 1781,
under Captain Cannon, marched to Guilford, was in the battle at said place and
served three months.  In September, 1781, he went from Buckingham County,
Virginia, to Yorktown as Orderly Sergeant in Captain John Moseley's company,
remained there until after the capitulation of Cornwallis, then guarded the
prisoners to Winchester and returned home not long before Christmas.  He was
attached to Colonel John Holcombe's regiment in General Lawson's Brigade of
Virginia Militia.
    In December, 1788, he married Sally Perkins and he died August 31, 1829.
She was allowed pension, Wid. File No. 7,481, upon an application executed
January 26, 1846, and she was allowed bounty land upon an application executed
March 20, 1855, at which date she had always resided in Buckingham County,
Virginia, and was eighty-three years old.
 Their son Dr. William. P. Moseley lived at Wheatland, Buckingham County,
Virginia. Soldier's sister Judith Courtney was married in October, 1792, and
was in her seventy-ninth year in 1846. Very respectfully,  J. L. Devenport,
Commissioner"
 Other references cited were an old Bible in possession of Judge Alexander
Hall, Moseley, P.O. Buckingham County, VA; Guerrant records in Goochland Court
House, VA; and Mrs. Mary W. (Moseley) Haleman of Beaumont, Texas.  His
application was filed 1912.
Arthur Moseley received 200 acres of land from his father, Robert Moseley in
22 Mar 1790.  Arthur Moseley was apparently a citizen of some local prominence
- as a prosperous landowner and slave owner, who was looked to for advice and
aid by his less fortunate neighbors.
REF: Moseley Bible 1809 owned by Sallie (Perkins) Moseley.
About 1790 he built a home on 600 acres he owned and named it "Wheatland"
because of the high quality wheat the farm produced. Birth date is found in
Sally (Perkins) Moseley's Bible printed 1809.
1810 Census Buckingham County, Virginia: Arthur Moseley 01201-31110-0-29, 1
male between 10 and 16, born 1800 - 1810;  2 males between 16 and 26,  born
