The Aberna (e) thy Family History

The legendary beginning of the Abernathy or Abernethy name is from the 5th century AD in Scotland. The name is first mentioned as a church, in the famous Pictish Chronicles, which lists the founder of the church at Abernethy as King Nectan (Nathan) about the year 470 AD. He may have been the Nectan who was converted to Christianity at Restinoth, the monastery in the parish of Forfar, by Boniface, an Israelite and a descendant of the apostles Peter and Andrew. According to the Chronicles, Nectan had been banished to Ireland by his brother, but St. Brigid had prophesied that he would return to possess the kingdom in peace. When he did return as prophesied, he built the church at Abernethy to honor "stbrigid.gif", who is said to have died there in 518 AD. Later, a second larger church was built there by King Gartnaith. In the 8th Century AD, the holy man, St. Donald lived with his nine virgin daughters at Ogilvy in Forfarshire. After he died, his daughters moved to Abernethy and established a monastery near Banff in Scotland, though legend says that they lived in a hollowed out tree. The monastery at Abernethy, with its famous, still existing "abernethytwer.gif", built about 850 AD, is one of the three most renowned in Britain. The location of this church, near Perth, is at the confluence of the mouths of the Earn and Tay Rivers. The "nethybridge.jpg" flows into the Tay very close to Abernethy Church, which in Gaelic means- by the ford (Aber) of the River Nethy. Another possible meaning of the name is Ab (By ) Earn Ne Tay, meaning by the ford of the rivers Earn and Tay.

A charter concerning the parish of Abernethy was written near the end of the 11th century AD by Ethelred, son of King Malcolm Canmore (Malcolm III of Scotland). Ethelred was the last Lay Abbot and first secular peer of Abernethy. Ethelred, whose name in Gaelic is Aehd, may have married the granddaughter of Luloch, a King of Scotland who was slain by Malcolm III, and his sons may have continued as secular heads of the Abernethy parish. The charter written by Ethelred was the first use of the name Abernethy by anyone. Scottish history records that Malcolm Ceann Mor (Canmore), son of the slain Duncan I, was the man who defeated and slew MacBeth about 1057 AD (See Shakespeare) and that he married St. Margaret about 1070. After facing a battle with William Rufus (William II of England), Malcolm III decided to pledge an oath of allegiance at Abernethy to William I (The Conqueror) in 1072. However, he did not keep his word and continued to launch attacks across the Northern English border. Malcolm was ambushed and slain at Alnwick in England in November, 1093, and his wife Margaret died a few days later, but several of their children became Kings of Scotland, and a Queen of England. "stmargaret.htm" was canonized as a Saint of the Catholic Church on June 19, 1250.

The Abernethy family seat was located at Caprow, where remains of a Roman Villa and baths have been unearthed. By the year 1100 AD, the church at Abernethy had expanded to become a large parish, which was first administered by Lay Abbots. For several hundred years the secular power of the parish was inherited by the eldest son of the nobility. The Abernethy family was one of only three families which had the religious privilege of giving Sanctuary (a form of religious protection from punishment by Civil law authorities.)

The first famous Secular peer of the Culdee monastery at Abernethy was Hugh De Abernethy, possibly the grandson of Ethelred. The Culdees were primitive Christian priests of Pictish or Scottish origin, discovered in Britain in the 6th Century AD by St. Augustine. Hugh's son was named Ormly or Orm, and he received royal grants of land from King William the Lion. Orm's son was Lawrence, the first to use Abernethy as a surname. He was born about 1167 AD. Lawrence's son was named Hugh, born about 1197. Hugh was involved in a minor insurrection against King Alexander III, when he abducted the young King briefly, but was later pardoned by the King. However, later Sir Hugh was involved with his sons Patrick and William, and Sir William Percy in the assassination of the regent, the Earl of Fife. When the plotters were arrested, Percy was executed, Sir Hugh and son William died in prison, but the actual assassin, Patrick, escaped to France and lived there until his death. Hugh's remaining son was Alexander, whose mother was known as Mary, Queen of Man. Alexander became involved in Scotland's struggle to preserve its independence, originally siding with Sir. William Wallace. But later, he changed sides and supported Edward I of England. In 1303, Edward appointed him as Warden of the area between the Firth of Forth and the Highlands. In 1312 he was sent by Edward II on an unsuccessful mission to Rome to intercede with the Pope against the Scots. After the defeat of Edward II at Culleden, the new Scottish King Robert the Bruce declared all of Alexander's holdings forfeit because of disloyalty. Because there was no other male heir in the Abernethy line, King Robert consented that all of the Abernethy estates could go to the daughters of Alexander. Margaret was married to the Earl of Angus, Helen was married to the Earl of Crawford, and Mary married Sir Andrew, 6th Baron of Leslie, who signed the 1320 Declaration of Arbroath. When their marriage lasted more than six months, by English feudal law, all the Abernethy lands and titles reverted to Baron Leslie, and the Abernethys became a sept of the Leslie Clan. The third son of Baron Leslie, John, was the progenitor of the Earls of Rothes, who continued to quarter the Abernethy arms with those of Leslie. Sir Andrew died about 1324 and Lady Mary Abernethy married Sir David Lindsay in 1325. Their third son, Sir William of Lindsay of the Byres, married Catherine Muir and their descendants acquired the Leslie castle at Pitcaple. The Abernethy baronial title was later revived for William, a descendant of Patrick Abernethy. It continued with Sir Lawrence Abernethy, who in 1445 became the first Lord Saltoun. There is a tenuous connection with the house of Bruce to the Abernethy line, in that William de Abernethy (1365-1420) married Maria, daughter of the Duke of Albany, the third son of King Robert II, the grandson of Robert the Bruce. The death of the 9th Lord Saltoun in 1668, without children, ended the ancient line of the Abernethy nobility. However, many other commoner descendants maintained the Abernethy name throughout Scotland, and in England and Ireland. In Italy, it is is called Abernetti and in Sweden it is Ebbernet.

During the reformation, begun by Martin Luther in Germany, the fiery Scotch preacher, John "knox.jpg" ("knoxstatue.gif"), led the Scots to convert their Christian religion from Roman Catholicism to Scotch Presbyterianism. After 1603, the son of Mary, Queen of Scots, who was King James VII of Scotland, became "james1.jpg" of Great Britain, succeeding the Virgin Queen, Elizabeth of England, and was the first King of Great Britain. His son, "charles1.jpg" later refused to relinquish some of his power to Parliament, and in January, 1649, he was beheaded at the direction of Parliament, under the leadership of the Puritan, "cromwell.jpg", who became the Lord High Protector of England. However, Scotland , which had supported Cromwell in his early wars against King Charles, now recognized the late King's son and crowned him as King "charles2.jpg". Cromwell then moved his army of Roundheads against the Scots and their new King, and on Sept 3, 1650, at the battle of Dunbar, in Scotland, he soundly defeated the less disciplined Highlanders and took thousands of prisoners. The Scots, under Lord David Leslie, a distant relative of the Abernethys, regrouped and challenged Cromwell's army exactly one year later at Worcester in West Central England, but as in the first battle, the Scottish Presbyterian Clergy took over for the top officers, and the end result was the same- a disaster for the Scots, with many more thousands of dead and prisoners. The English Roundhead soldiers of Cromwell were so angry with the Scots after these two battles that they disinterred the bones of many buried Abernethys in Church graveyards, scattered the bones and destroyed the headstones.

Among those 10,000 prisoners of war from the battle of Dunbar, most likely, was 27 year old Robert Abernethy, a minor Scottish officer under Lord Leslie , and possibly his brother William, both from Banff, Perthshire, Scotland. William Abernathy emigrated to America about 1650, and settled down in Connecticut and married Sarah Doolittle, the daughter of a New England pioneer. Back in England, the able-bodied prisoners of war from the battle of Dunbar were marched to Durham and Newcastle-on-Tyne. The Cathedral at Durham was converted into a prison, and there the unfortunate Highlanders spent some time as captives of war, and many died from disease, malnutrition and some from fighting amongst themselves. The English Council of War in London discussed what to do with them, and decided to continue the policy of sending prisoners to the Colonies. The Top Scottish officers were either executed or imprisoned, as was Lord Leslie, but the minor officers were given the choice of prison in England or servitude in the Colonies. Robert Abernethy chose the latter, and was shipped with a group of 1610 men to Charles City in Virginia in early 1652, by an order of the Council to Sir Arthur Haselrigge, in charge of prisoners, to deliver them to Samuel Clarke, for transportation to Virginia. This order included 900 Scotsmen for Virginia, and 150 more to be sent to New England. Robert suffered many hardships and privations along with the other prisoners of war on the journey. The English Council of War had intended the penalty as unpaid servitude (slavery) but the Virginia Colony authorities decided to pay him for his five years service (where he learned the art of tobacco growing and trading), so when he was freed, he sent for his sweetheart in Great Britain, and when she arrived, they were married, and he bought a place on the James River and settled down (according to family tradition). Existing records show that on April 3, 1657, he signed, with his mark, an agreement to give a cow named Goodluck to his wife's daughter, Sara Cubishe or Cabbage. Her true name is probably Coppage or Coppedge, which was a well known British family at the time. On March 7, 1665, Robert bought 100 acres on the South side of the James River near Charles City. He served on juries of inquiry about a drowning, in March, 1662, and later about an accidental smothering death of a child in May, 1665. It appears that he lived on his property by the James River until he died about the year 1685.

The son of the first Scottish Abernethy in Virginia was also named Robert. Since it was the Scottish custom to name the first male child after the grandfather, this implies that Robert I's father was also named Robert. Robert II also named his first son Robert (III), and the latter married Christine Tillman. Her ancestors include some of the royalty of England (including several kings) and Europe (including Charlemagne). Therefore, their children, which included Robert IV and John, are also descended from this royalty. Robert III moved to Lincoln Co., North Carolina with most of his family, except that John went back to Virginia. There is a family tradition that a dispute among the family members in North Carolina led to this separation, and that afterwards the Virginia family spelled their name Abernathy. John may have served in the Revolutionary war. John's son, grandson and great grandson were also named John Abernathy, and this fourth John had several children by a Mary Lucy while in Virginia, and after 1800 he moved his family of the Northwest territory of Ohio, living in Ross County, Ohio for many years. He worked as a tanner in 1850. He moved to Darlington, Montgomery County, Indiana before he died in 1855. His oldest son was named John A. Abernathy.

John A. moved with his family to Ohio, but while there, some of them were captured and tortured by Indians, and bore the scars all their lives. The family lived in Ross County for many years, until moving to Wapello Co., Iowa, where John owned a tavern with his wife Elizabeth, in 1850. One of his sons was named George P. Abernathy. George moved with his brother William to Logan Co., Illinois, and later to Parke Co. Indiana, where he was married to Sarah Evans. Sarah's ancestors also included many royal persons from England and Europe. George's wife Sarah gave birth to a son John, but Sarah and her second son Milton both died before 1850. George then returned to Parke Co., Indiana, then later moved to Wapello Co., Iowa where his parents lived, in the spring of 1850. From there, George went to Agency City, Iowa, then to LaHarpe, Hancock Co., Illinois, then back to Wapello Co., Iowa. Later he moved to Sullivan Co., Missouri, but in the late 1850's he went with his three brothers to the Oregon Territory and engaged in mining in Oregon and Idaho. He and his three brothers worked together, but two stayed in Idaho, one in Utah, while George returned to Iowa in 1863. He married his second wife, Elizabeth Griggs, and started a large second family.

George's first son John, by his late wife Sarah, lived in Clark Co. Iowa on his own farm, and had four children by his wife, Margaret Gearhart, three girls and one boy. The oldest child was Mary Daisey, born in 1877. The second child was Peter Lemuel, born in September, 1879. It was the local custom to send the boys out to be a farm laborer at the neighboring farms at a young age, and by 1890, Pete was working on a farm, and he did not receive much of an education. He was still working as a farm laborer by the age of 21, in 1900 in Marion County, Iowa. About 1907 he met and married a school teacher from Albia, Iowa, named Anna Castle, a graduate of Darmouth College. Her family was from South Carolina and Pennsylvania. The married couple moved to Bushnell, Nebraska, following other members of the Abernathy and Allen families, and there, in December of 1909. their first son, Glenn Byron Abernathy was born. Later, Roy and Newton were born in Bushnell. Then the family moved to Mountain Grove, in the Ozarks of Missouri where Mary Edith was born. When Byron started picking up the local accent, Anna decided it was time to move, so they went to Ottowa, Kansas and bought an 80 acre farm. Some years later they moved to Baldwin City, Kansas and then to near Sterling, Kansas. When the Depression set in, the Lemuel Abernathy family sold their land at a loss and moved out to Albany, Oregon, at the recommendation of Emmet Castle, a cousin of Anna. Later, "byronabernathy.htm" married "verahuffman.htm" at her parents homestead in Benton County, and they had four boys, "gda1999.jpg", Robert Alan, Keith George, and Gary Alan, all good Scottish Abernathy names.

Among the most famous Abernathys and Abernethys in history is "geoaber.gif", originally from Ohio, though born in Aberdeen, Scotland in 1807 . He became the first Governor of the Oregon Territory in 1845. In Northwest Oregon, there are many landmarks and structures named after him. In Ireland, John Abernethy (1680-1720) was famous as a Presbyterian minister and theologian who took an early stand against the Test Act of 1673 which barred Roman Catholics from office and was not repealed until 1828. Another John Abernethy (1764-1831) may have been the most popular medical lecturer in the history of British medicine. He was a surgeon and author of pioneering works on the treatment of disease, a celebrity in his practice and an honored lecturer in London. Lewis Grover Abernathy, born in 1888, was a well-known Professor of physics and mathematics noted for his work on wave-length of satellites of Green Mercury Line 5461. In Texas around the turn of the 20th century, lived John "Catch Em Alive Jack" Abernathy, a famous lawman and trapper of live wolves, catching them with his bare hands. His legendary life is recounted in "Who's Who of Western America" and "The Ride of The Abernathy Boys". Another well known Abernathy in the 20th century was Jack H. Abernathy who died in l996. He had been named as one of "The Most Influential Oilmen of the Century", a member of the Oklahoma Hall of Fame, and "An Oil Pioneer" (by the University if Oklahoma) with many other honors.

In puzzling over the story of the Abernathys/Abernethys in American, I keep coming up against the religious question. If Thomas Perkins Abernethy is correct that Robert Abernathy I came to Virginia as a prisoner of war from the Scottish defeat at the hands of Oliver Cromwell's army, that means he was somehow involved in one of the great religious/political struggles of seventeenth century Britain. Indeed, one of the things we know is that the Abernathys in south side Virginia in the eighteenth century were having their babies baptized in the Episcopal Church (Church of England). The records of Bristol Parish note baptisms of children of both Robert Abernathy III and Charles Abernathy. The Abernathys in Brunswick, Dinwiddie, etc. counties seem to have become predominantly Methodist after the fall of the English establishment and the Methodist revival of 1774-1776 although a few became part of the reorganized Protestant Episcopal Church. As far as I know, however, there was not a Presbyterian among them.
What of the Abernathys/Abernethys elsewhere? As best I can tell, before the American Revolution there were Abernathys in 1) south side Virginia, 2) Connecticut. 3) the northern Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, 4) South Carolina and possibly 5) North Carolina although a good many of these families relate back to south side Virginia. Does anyone who is descended from the Abernathys of Connecticut, the Shenandoah, South Carolina or North Carolina have anything to say about the religious orientations of their ancestors?

My suspicion is that Abernathy migrations were somehow involved with Jacobites or, at least, Scottish episcopacy although the motives may have also been political or economic.

I am descended from Abernathy's of Western North Carolina who, whatever their ancestors may have been, had become Baptist by the mid 19th Century. My family later became part of the Campbellite movement which led to the formation of the Disciples of Christ. The political and social ramifications of choice of denomination in colonial America and the United States before the Civil War were relatively minor compared to what one might experience in Britain where denomination was, among other things, a powerful political statement.

Although the colonies/states maintained "established" religions favored by state governments, enforcement was difficult and rare, and most mainstream denominations were in no way disabled or disenfranchised due to religious affiliation. In remote areas, Baptists, with their local control and lack of central authority, were among the first congregations organized. Moreover, lack of a hierarchy and relative informality would doubtless have been attractive to pioneers. And the religious movements which took hold in this era were mainly concerned with a personalized creed based on individual spiritual experience rather than ecclesiastical authority. Finally, maintenance of a distinctive Scots identity in this era and among pioneers would have been difficult and of little utility;therefore, maintenance of Presbyterianism as a statement of ethnic or nationalistic affiliation would have been a rare motivation for anyone after the first generation. Indeed, Scots identity appears to have become desirable to assert only after the wave of Irish immigration in the 1850s when one wished to distinguish oneself from the new arrivals. This was especially true for people with ancestors of Scots extraction who had sojourned in Ulster.
Although too much can be made of American religious freedom, it is likely that denominations proliferated in America because they could and because they were more free to market themselves to potential congregants than was the case in Britain. We might, if we studied it, find that denomination is a function more of class and remoteness from the metropolitan centers than of ethnicity.

Thanks for your response. You do not tell me where your Abernathy ancestors were from. I suspect that Camolite=Campbellite (for Alexander Campbell)=Disciples of Christ or Restorationists, but that is a mid nineteenth century American development. I am aware that one set of Abernathys became Campbellites and were related to the development of Disciples' education in Texas, viz., the children and stepchildren of Sarah Fry McCrory Abernathy Abernathy Carlton, who ultimately married a Campbellite preacher, Charles Carlton and settled in Bonham, but I do not know whether your story relates to them or not.

James ABERNATHY

Many claim James is the son of Robert A. Abernathy, II and Christian Tillman, and James' birth dates range from 1717 to 1750, with a large majority settling on 1746 for James, which would have made Robert II 90-years old when James was born (and his mother died about 1717).
While there is little in the way of birth dates for James or Elizabeth, they couple began having, or was still having, children in the late 1760s.
It would be likely, then that James and Elizabeth's ages ranged from 20 to 45 years, which would put their birth dates anywhere from 1730 to 1750, While it is true James could continue to father children past his fifties, it is unlikely Elizabeth would.  Elizabeth may have been much younger than James, but it is more likely that the couple was closer in age.
