To the Hutchins

We are presenting this booklet showing what is known to us of the first four generations of the family of Strangeman Hutchins.

You will find many gaps, that can be filled, and probably errors that can be corrected if each one helps. We hope we may be able in a couple of years to print a more complete record of these generations.

This data is selected from a vast amount of material secured by intensive research and thousands of miles of travel during the past few years.

This lineage now containing over five thousand names, together with what we may find, will be placed in a permanent record, and finally placed in the D. A. R. Library at Washington, D. C.

As far as we have positive proof, Nicholas Hutchins is the forbear of this family. There are several traditions concerning the family, most of them based on the peculiar name, Strangeman. The most pleasing one is that some Hutchins previous to Nicholas married a Polly Strangeman.

Tradition gives the birth of Nicholas as 1645. Nicholas was married twice. We do not know the name of the first wife, or if there were any children by this marriage.

There were Hutchins early in Massachusetts, in Pennsylvania, in Maryland, in the Bermudas, in Norfolk County, Virginia. Our Hutchins were along the James River. These Hutchins of the various locations, may have had a common ancestry back some time in the British Isles, but nrelationship is known among them in the colonies.

Nicholas Hutchins land grant was located about twelve miles by paved road down the James from the present site of Richmond.

It was about three miles below Dutch Gap.

Strangeman Hutchins lived in Goochland County, on Genito Creek about twenty miles up the James from Richmond.

A distance of fifty miles along the James, with Richmond as center, would approximately locate the family the fiirst hundred years in the Colony.

Nicholas Hutchins had one son and four grand sons. These five moved to Surry County, N. C. This move together with the Quaker records makes it possible to keep our Hutchins line separate from the others.

When you remember that Strangeman Hutchins was born two hundred and twenty-tight years ago, you will not be surprised that much we would like to know, can not be found.

We thank those who have helped, to mention a few who have assisted beyond their immediate families.

Mrs. James T. Johnson, Colorado, Texas.
Mrs. John W. Waymire, San Diego, Calif.
Mrs. Emma Sullivan and Mrs. Ella Whisler, Wabash, Ind.
Mrs. Helen P. Schmidt, West Milton, Ohio.
Mrs. Mary Ann Holmes, Sheridan, Ind., who had an old, old Hutchins Bible with most valuable data written one hundred and forty years ago by Benjamin Hutchins, Sen.
Gurney Hutchins, East Bend, N. C.
Dr. Wm. M. Reser, Lafayette, Ind.

We hope this booklet will be an incentive to help. Please send in your family records. A good record always has dates of births, marriages and deaths. But names without dates are acceptable.

Ancestral Lines

Besides the Hutchins, who possibly came to the Virginia Colony as early as 1625, there are several Immigrant Ancestral Lines in allied families, the Watkins, the Cox, the Stanley, the Barnett, the McGehee, the Harding, the Harris and the Trent families.

The Cox Family

Elizabeth Cox, who married Strangeman Hutchins, was a daughter of Richard Cox and his wife, Mary. Richard Cox made his will in Henrico County, Va., July 13, 1734. In this he names his heirs, John Cox, Henry Cox, Mary Ford, Elizabeth Hutchins, Richard Cox, Obedience Perkins, Edith Whitloe, a grand son, Hickerson Cox, and his wife Mary. A deed made previous to the will shows that he had a daughter, Martha Ferguson.

Mary Cox, wife of Richard, was before her marriage Mary Trent, daughter of Henry Trent and his wife, Elizabeth. Henry Trent in his will made in Henrico County, Jan. 8, 1700, named as his heirs, Alexander Trent, Henry Trent, John Trent, William Trent, Mary Cox, wife of Richard Cox, Rebecca Trent, Susanna Trent, and his wife, Elizabeth.

Elizabeth Trent, born about 1657, wife of Henry Trent, was before her marriage Elizabeth Sherman, daughter of Henry and Cisly Sherman. And Cisly Sherman be¬ fore her marriage to Henry Sherman, was the wife of Isaac Hutchins, whose will made in Henrico County, Feb. 23, 1656, named as his heirs, his minor son, Robert Hutchins, and his wife, Sisely.

John Cox was the father of Richard Cox. His will made in Henrico County, Feb. 10, 1691, named as his heirs his six sons, John Cox, William Cox, Bartholomew Cox, Richard Cox, Henry Cox, George Cox, and wife, Mary.

William Cox was the father of John Cox. Virginia descendants of the family, people of education and high standing concur in that statement. Mrs. Ella Foy O’Gorman, Washington, D. C., a descendant of Richard Cox through his son, Henry Cox, after years of patient investigation, says that Wililam Cox was the Immigrant Ancestor. As does Judge Edwin P. Cox, South Richmond, Va., a student for years of the family records, a descendant of John Cox through his son, George Cox.

William Cox, born 1598, died previous to 1656, came from England to Virginia,

1610—in the ship, “Godspeed”
1628—Sept. 20, had a grant of 100 acres in Elizabeth City County.
1636—Nov. 29, had a grant of 150 acres in Henrico County, on the James, two and one-half miles above Harroe Addocks. Wife, Elizabeth.
1642—Sept. 1, bought 250 acres in partnership with Isaac Hutchins at the mouth of Falling Creek, along the James.
1665—Aug. 5, Thomas Cox, son and heir of William Cox, sold half of this 250 acres.
1685—Apr. 1, John Cox, Sen. of Harroe Addocks, made a deed of land to his son, William Cox.

Harroe Addocks, or Arrohateck, was five or six miles above Dutch Gap. The William Cox grant, 1636, was possibly not far from the Mouth of Falling Creek.

The Hutchins Family

Nicholas Hutchins was the forbear of this Hutchins family. He was a Quaker living in Henrico County, Virginia, and belonging to the Henrico Monthly Meeting at Curies, and later to the White Oak Swamp Meeting. There are few items known concerning him. In the records of the Henrico Meetings, 1699 to 1756, page one, we find this first item.

7- 8-1699—Nicholas Hutchins did condemn his marriage by priest to the satisfaction of the Friends.
12- 9-1699—Nicholas donated 40 pounds of tobacco for building a church at Curies.
6- 8-1701—Nicholas Hutchins and Mary Watkins, daughter of Henry, propose intentions of marriage. The usual committee was appointed. Henry Watkins, father of the young woman, consenting thereunto, saying he would not be their hindrance.
8- 9-1701—Nicholas Hutchins and Mary Watkins were married at a public meeting of the Friends, in Henrico County, Va.
4- 2-1702—Nicholas received a grant of 230 acres along ye north bank of James River and on ye west side of ye Four Mile Creek. This is near Dutch Gap.
4-17-1710—Nicholas was on committee to consider a marriage. Nicholas reported that he thought first cousins should not marry.
Oct. 1711—Nicholas, one of several who were paid for working on the Battery at Jamestown.
11- 7-1714—Nicholas was chosen representative.
3- 3-1718—Nicholas was chosen to inquire about a marriage, at White Oak Swamp Meeting.
4- 6-1719—Meeting held at the home of Nicholas Hutchins.
2- 7-1724—Nicholas signed the marriage record of William More and Martha Odum.
2- 6-1728—James Stanley, son of Thomas of Hanover County, and Catherine Hutchins, daughters of Nicholas of Henrico County, declare their intentions to marry.
3- 5-1728—James Stanley and Catherine Hutchins married.
10- 14-1729—Daniel Harris, son of John of Hanover County, and Mary Hutchins, daughter of Nicholas, declare their intentions to marry. This announcement said Nicholas, deceased.
11- 3-1729—Strangeman Hutchins sold and deeded the above grant made to Nicholas, and fortunately in the deed said that Nicholas was his father.
4- 5-1730—Daniel Harris and Mary Hutchins married.
10-11-1743—Martha Hutchins, married John Stanley, son of Thomas. James Stanley and John Stanley were brothers, and as far as we are able to judge, Catherine and Martha were sisters. Martha was the second wife of John Stanley.

* 8- 2-1736—There is mention of Mary Holmes, mother-in-law of James Stanley. Indicating a second marriage for Mary Watkins Hutchins.

We consider this summary the most important data we have found. In the past two years, we have sent this to many with whom we have been in correspondence. We are glad to make it available now to all.

The Spelling of the Name

The Quaker Records of Virginia spelled the name, Hutchins. Many of the later families spell the name, Hutchens. Either is correct.

Page 4

The Watkins Family

Mary Watkins, who married Nicholas Hutchins, was the daughters of Henry Watkins. But on the Quaker Records of that time are found Henry Watkins, Sen., and Henry Watkins, Jun., father and son.

The following is mostly quotation from various sources.

One of the most interesting families of Virginia is the distinguished Watkins Family, whose earliest positive indentified family is Henry Watkins, born 1637, at Malvern Hills. There were earlier Watkins.

In the General Court Records, a Henry Watkins is mentioned 1623, 1624, 1627 as overseer of the plantation of Lady Dale, not far distant from Malvern Hills.

In 1634, a deed mentions a Henry Watkins owning land in such position that we have a Henry Watkins living in 1634, not more than ten miles from Malvern Hills, where Henry Watkins was born 1637. It has been impossible so far to connect Henry Watkins, 1637, to the other Watkins of that time.

This family distinguished socially and politically has been an object of research for many years.

The great Statesman, Henry Clay, was a descendant of this family.

Henry Watkins, senior, who died 1717, did not leave a will. He had previously deeded his land to his sons, William, Joseph, Edward, Henry, and Thomas. Court records show that he had a daughter, Elizabeth.

Henry Watkins, junior, born 1660, in his will 1714, left his small estate to his wife, Mary, and his sons, John, Benjamin, Joseph, Henry, and Stephen.

The most we can say is that Mary Watkins Hutchins was a daughter or a grand daughter of Henry Watkins, 1637.

Strangeman Hutchins

Strangeman Hutchins, son of Nicholas, was born in Virginia, 1707, and died in Surry County, (now Yadkin County), North Carolina, Feb. 10, 1792. Strangeman probably lived in Henrico County until his marriage about 1731 to Elizabeth Cox, daughter of Richard and Mary Cox.

Elizabeth Cox was born Feb. 25, 1713 in Virginia, and died, according to Thomas W. Barnett, in North Carolina at the age of 103 years.

Some time after his marriage, Strangeman moved up the James River to Goochland County, along Genito Creek. Here he bought and occasionally sold land. In 1782 to 1785, when preparing to move to North Carolina, Strangeman disposed of land showing that he owned about 750 acres of which his son, John, had an interest in 250 acres.

Strangeman was a very prominent member of the Friends Church. There was a small meeting at Genito Creek, but his principal activity was at the great central meeting at Cedar Creek, in Hanover County. His name is first found on the Cedar Creek records in 1741. From that time until 1786, when he moved to North Carolina, his name is continually on the records as witness, on committees, as representative, as overseer, as clerk, as elder.

In 1782, Strangeman freed twelve slaves by a deed of Manumission.

As you read between the lines of the record, you realize that Strangeman was a man of amazing vitality, and of remarkable ability.

Strangeman had eleven children, Mary Brooks, Edith Stanley, John Hutchins, Nicholas Hutchins, Elizabeth Barnett, Obedience Harding, Thomas Hutchins, Jane Barnett, Milla Hutchins, Lydia Johnson and Benjamin Hutchins.

The family of each, so far as is known, is given on the following pages.

Mary Brooks’ will was made March 21, 1804, and probated in Goochland County, Va., June 18, 1804. The Brand children are named in the will. Samuel Robert Brooks was disowned, 1-26-1766, by Cedar Creek Meeting for following the corrupt ways of the world.

b. 11-15-1736, Va. d. 6-22-1796, N. C. m. 10-16-1754, John Stanley, d. 1795, N. C.

The records of this family are very meager. There were four children, but we do not have dates of births and deaths. What we know is from the Quaker records.

1. John Hutchins Stanley At Deep Creek Meeting, 5-4-1796, complaint against Hutchins Stanley for going out in marriage. This meeting therefore disowns him to be a member of this society, married 7-13-1795, Ann Hoppis.

2. Mary Stanley married 12-6-1787, at Deep Creek Meeting, Jesse Stanley, son of Archelaus. Deep River record.
3. Elizabeth Stanley Deep River Record, 9-1-1788. Complaint against Elizabeth McCollum, formerly Stanley, for marrying contrary to the discipline.
4. Milicent Stanley Deep River Record, 9-6-1790. Complaint against Milla Airs, formerly Stanley, married out by Justice of Peace.

John Stanley’s will made 2-24-1793, was probated May Term of Court, 1795. It mentions his daughters, Mary Stanley and Millicent Airs. His son, John Hutchins Stanley, is to receive his plantation, but his mother, Edith Stanley, and his grand mother, Elizabeth Hutchins, are to have a life interest in the land.

THE QUAKER CHURCH

The members of the Nicholas Hutchins family were birth right Quakers. To understand their lives and affairs, one should study the Friends Church of that early period.

To the Quakers, religion was a serious matter to be taken into their daily lives. Church rules and discipline were strictly maintained. To them marriage was a church affair. No hasty marriages for them.

The parties must declare their Intentions at a monthly meeting. A committee was appointed to investigate the clearness of the parties and report to the next monthly meeting. If a Quaker married a non-member, he was said to have “Married Out of Unity”, for which he or she was disowned unless the fault was condemned.

Complaint was made against members for unseemly conduct, dressing too gaily, swearing, lying, frivolous talk, military service, gambling, drinking, not paying debts, holding slaves, absence from church, fighting, and for more serious offenses. And for any of these might be disowned. A member was not allowed to go to Law, without the consent of the meeting.

But always the church appointed a committee to visit the erring member, to help him see the error of his way.

A disowned member ceased to exist as far as the church was concerned. Often parents did not allow a disowned heir to inherit.

The older Hutchins belonged to four meetings. In Henrico County, Virginia, several meetings were grouped under the name Henrico Meetings.

In upper Hanover County, near Montpelier, was located Cedar Creek Meeting, one of the most prominent in Virginia. A number of small meetings were located in its territory. It was a Monthly Meeting, a Quarterly Meeting and a Yearly Meeting.

When the Hutchins moved to Surry County, North Carolina, and settled on the branches of Forbush Creek, they placed their membership at Deep River Meeting, about thirty miles away. Soon services were held near at Deep Creek. In 1793, Deep Creek became a separate meeting, with the Hutchins leading members.

Cedar Creek Meeting was abandoned long years ago. Deep Creek is still a strong, prosperous meeting. And recently, 1933, Charles Hutchins was its minister.

We have been unable to find this family. The marriage is recorded in the Cedar Creek Meeting records. These records, fourth month. 1786, show that they had a daughter. Obedience.

THE BARNETT FAMILY

Thomas W. Barnett, who lived in Fulton County, Ind., and who is named in the family of Jane Barnett, wrote a short history of the family in 1857.

He says—“John Barnett, my great, great grandfather, was born 1680 in the vicinity of James town, Va., and died there 1765. My great grandfather was named John also. He was born 1712, and died 1797. He was born, lived and died in the land of his fathers. Each of them was the only son in his family.”

Thomas W. Barnett’s mother was Elizabeth Hutchins. Of this family he says: “My great grandfather’s name was Strangeman Hutchins. Why that singular name was given him, I know not, unless it was because his parents thought it strange that a man child should be born unto them, for I believe he was their only son. He was a minister of the Friends Faith. His word was law among his children, and they obeyed him to the letter. His wife lived to the ad¬ vanced age of 103 and died in N. Carolina.”

Elizabeth Barnett Mendenhall, aunt of Thomas W., left the record that John Barnett, 1712, had for wife, Ann. His children were Arthanacious, who married Jane Hutchins; Ann, who married John Epperson; and Martha, who married Frank Epperson. There were two other children whose names were not known.

DATES

The dates given have been taken from the Quaker Records, from Grave Stones, from the Census Records, from Bible Records, from Marriage Bonds, from County Records.

It is not always possible to get the exact date of marriage from the Quaker Records. The Intentions were declared at church. But often the marringe took place at home and was reported to the next monthly meeting as accomplished. We have often used the dntc of the intentions as the nearest we could find.

When a Quaker married contrnry to the discipline, often the only date of record wus the date complaint was made, which might be months after the marriage.

The date on a marriage bond might precede the marriage by days.
