John Peytons

Just some of them...

oldest in Virginia:
  • Peyton-1046: John with oldest birth year whose profile had born Virginia: oh my... born Virginia, maybe 1678, but sources don't agree on his father & profile was detached as father of "Capt Harry Peyton" (Peyton-1045, whose dau. Frances m Brown), even though it appears sources agree on that.
    • This John (Peyton-1046, b 1678) might be getting confused with Peyton-93, b 1691 (see next - "immigrant John"). Peyton-1045 (Harry) is the one with all his sons killed in the Revolution. His profile says five sons; the Richmond article says three. The profile attached (to Harry Peyton-1045) for his son John (Peyton-49) has John's death as 1804 (b 1757), so something's off. The Henry whose sons were killed in the Revolution m 2ce: Thornton & Gallagher. He is the second Henry Peyton to marry an Anne Thornton (see next) .
"immigrant John"
  • Peyton-93: named "immigrant John" in the Richmond article, wasn't an immigrant (according to his profile, Peyton-93, he was born in Stafford Co., Virginia in 1691; son of Henry & Anne Barnes Thornton; m 3x, Waye, Unknown, & Rowzee); died Stafford Co., at Stony Hill, 18 May 1760. Apparently confusion with the other Harry/Henry Peyton m Anne Thornton? The article talks of family that points to Peyton-93 instead of the father of Harry who lost his sons in the Revolution (who appears to be represented by Peyton-1046, also born in Virginia, but in 1678, according to his profile).
Mentioned above (and listed chronologically with "Other John Peytons"):
Other John Peytons:
  • Peyton-847, born c1677 (see profile attached as his mother, Mary Keeble)
  • Peyton-1046 (1678-?)
  • John, son of Valentine (1657-1705), removed to Amherst (according to Hayden, see Valentine page 492; entry for John isn't available in Google Books snippit view)
  • Peyton-93, John Peyton of Stony Hill (1691-1760), m 3x Waye, Unknown, Elizabeth Rowzee (last is mother of Peyton-78, b 1754)
  • Peyton-1228 of Culpeper (born Stafford 1718-1782), m Ureth Horton
  • Peyton-1580, born Virginia c1727, m 28 March 1758 (that's it for the profile -no sources; doesn't say who he married); father of Peyton-1579 b 1758
  • Peyton-667, born Prince William Co. 1728, died there before 7 Nov. 1774, son of Valentine d 1751; m Seth Harrison (lots of children per his profile text) - looks like [[Peyton-14 took his dates?
  • Peyton-14, born Prince William Co. c1728, died there before 7 Nov. 1774 (no spouse/children attached); attached as son of Valentine Payton-679 m Sarah Randolph
  • Peyton-872, born after 1744, died 25 March 1790 (son of William Peyton-861, b 1718 in NC)
  • Peyton-78, John Rowzee Peyton, born Stafford Co. 1754, died Stony Hill, 1798; son of John Peyton-93 m Anne Hooe (father of Peyton-76, b 1778)
  • Peyton-207, son of Robert m Guffey, born 1755 Albemarle Co., died 1833, TN; m Margaret Hamilton
  • Peyton-49 (1757-1804), son of Henry & Margaret Gallagher
  • Peyton-1579, born Virginia 1758, died Kentucky, m Sarah Goode; son of Peyton-1580 b c1727
  • Peyton-76, John Howe Peyton (son of John Rowzee Peyton), born 1778 at Stony Hill, Stafford Co., died Augusta Co., 1847 (m 2x: Madison, Lewis)
  • Peyton-225, John Hamilton Peyton (son of Peyton-207), born 1794, TN

Valentine Peytons

Again, just some of them...

unconnected (in WikiTree) Valentine (born Westmoreland 1657, d 1705, Stafford), son of Henry & Ellen (Partington) Peyton, brother of Philip, m Ann unknown. Hayden (p 492) speculates that among the sons of Valentine (b 1657, died after 1705) were "Nos." 200, 201, 202 (with a son Valentine b 1749), 204, and 210:
  • 200 = William of Stafford
  • 201 = George of P.W.
  • 202 = Philip of Stafford - son Valentine b 1749 (see below)
  • 204 = John, relocated to Amherst Co.
  • 210 = Thomas
Hayden has Henry as oldest of three brothers (Henry, Valentine, Philip) with lands "on Aquia Creek and its branches". Hayden also has them as children of Henry (d c1659).
Valentine (b London 1627, d 1665 Westmoreland), m Frances Gerrard; son Gerrard born posthumously
fathers of the two Roberts... both of Stafford County
other known Valentines
  • Dr. Valentine d 1754
  • Dr Valentine (1756-1802), surgeon with 3rd VA Regiment (maybe confused with the older Valentine?)
  • Valentine who served as Lieutenant in Capt John Peyton's company, 3rd VA Regiment
  • Valentine, b 1749, d KY c1830 - born Stafford, "of Albemarle" & included appears to be the Valentine listed in plaque honoring Lincoln Co., KY Revolutionary War soldiers (see this website, which also has transcriptions of Linton & Thornton wills). He's son of Philip according to Hayden (No. 202 - see "unconnected" Valentine info above; see also below).

Robert Peytons

Known Roberts:

Roberts in records:

  • Robert, with Capt. John Peyton's company till 15 August 1777 (promoted to 2nd Lt.) Listed as 2nd Lt. Robert Peyton with 3rd VA under Capt Lee (Nov. 1777)
  • Ens. Robert Peyton, died at Brandywine 11 Sep 1777 (3rd VA under Capt Lee). per Henry Lee's memoirs, this appears to be the same newly-promoted 2nd Lt. Robert Peyton (not sure why he's on the November 1777 muster in that case)
Robert, nephew of John, son of Valentine, grandson of Craven, brother of Craven & John
  • FS website (see Leads, below): "John Peyton, son of Craven Peyton, of Loudoun County, was an officer in the Revolutionary army, and during the war was sent to Fluvanna County to purchase supplies. Three nephews, sons of his brother Valentine, joined him there, Craven, Robert and John." See Edgar Woods, Albemarle County in Virginia: Giving Some Account of What It Was by Nature, of What It Was Made by Man, and of Some of the Men Who Made It (Charlottesville, Va.: The Michie Company Printers, 1901), 295.
  • Amherst Co. was created from Albermarle County in 1761
  • Hayden says John Peyton (no. 202) moved to Amherst

Notes

Comments

Posted by Noland-165 on 11 Dec 2018 (at 20:27 GMT):

I think it's likely that the service records are for this Robert.

Other researchers seem to have given them to a Robert, son of John Peyton & Seth Harrison. From that John Peyton's profile, citing Fauquier County in the Revolution (page 160):

The 3rd Regiment officers then at Morristown [Feb. 25, 1777], Captain Chilton, Lieutenants Alvin Mountjoy[61] and Joseph Blackwell, and Ensign Robert Peyton[62] were given treatment considered helpful at the time in warding off the disease.... They escaped except Joseph Blackwell...

61: Lieutenant Alvin Mountjoy came from a family originally from Bristol, England. They settled in Westmoreland County but removed to Stafford County at an early date. Mountjoy was related to Chilton through the Peirce family.
62: Robert Peyton, d. 1777, was a son of John and Seth (Harrison) Peyton. He had three brothers in the Revolution.

From Peyton-667, quoting Peytons of Virginia, John (m Seth) was son of Valentine (G line):

"27. ii. Lt. Robert Peyton; He served as a Lieutenant in the Revolutionary War; he died 11 Sep 1777, sp."

But the FamilySearch records continue & show Robert Peyton as 2nd Lt. on the November 1777 (but no longer in Capt. John Peyton's company, having been commissioned 15 August, as reflected in the August pay roll for Capt. John Peyton's company, where he was paid as an Ensign "till 15th").

Posted by Noland-165 on 11 Dec 2018 (at 20:54 GMT):

John & Seth are shown in POV as having a son Burr (and a son Harrison). The profile attached as their son Valentine (Peyton-13) has a transcription of a will that names his brother Burr Peyton executor (and his "well beloved children, Craven, Prudence, John and Robert Peyton"). The transcription says the will was proved "Prince Wm County the 6th day of Febry 1786."

That Valentine's profile (Peyton-13) also identifies him as the 3rd VA Reg. officer on the Valley Forge muster (along with Capt. John Peyton).

But it doesn't quite make sense that Robert (b 1745) is Ens. while Valentine (Peyton-13, b 1755) is Captain. Unless Robert had already removed to North Carolina and returned to Virginia, joining the regiment well after Valentine did?

More likely, more Valentines have been conflated (not just the fathers of this Robert, b 1745, & the other Robert, b 1725).

Posted by Noland-165 on 12 Dec 2018 (at 09:07 GMT):

Philip R.F. Lee is listed as a company commander of 3d VA Regiment at Valley Forge also (along with Capts Valentine & John Peyton).

Posted by Noland-165 on 12 Dec 2018 (at 10:13 GMT):

hmm. one list has him as killed at Brandywine (along with Capt Philip R. F. Lee): this image lists a Robert Peyton with the following information:

Ensign 3 CL Nov. 1776; 2nd Lieut. Jan. 1, 1777; killed at Brandywine Sept. 11, 1777. Awarded 2,666 acres.

"United States Rosters of Revolutionary War Soldiers and Sailors, 1775-1783," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CS3Q-HFLL-T?cc=2546162&wc=WD6Q-RM9%3A1588791495 : 24 January 2018), Virginia > image 635 of 886; citing various published state rosters.

Posted by Noland-165 on 12 Dec 2018 (at 10:18 GMT):

same list has 5 John Peytons. One was shown as wounded at Brandywine:

1st Lieut. 3 CL Feb. 5, 1776; Captain June 19, 1776; wounded at Brandywine Sept. 11, 1777; retired Sept. 30, 1778; served as Clothier General 1780-1781; died 1790; awarded 5,222 acres.

Posted by Noland-165 on 12 Dec 2018 (10:48 GMT):

verified... p 479 out of 886 (of pdf of same list) -

Lee, Philip Richard Francis, Captain 3 CL Mch 8, 1776; mortally wounded at Brandywine Sept. 11, 1777. Prince William ref., E.

I also looked again at the image of the Nov 1777 Muster Roll & verified that it appears both Capt. Philip Lee & 2nd Lt. Robert Peyton were among the commissioned officers for 3rd Virginia Regiment as of November 1777 (meaning they weren't killed/mortally wounded at Brandywine in September).

Posted by Noland-165 on 12 Dec 2018 (18:50 GMT):

John's profile (John Peyton-667 b 1728 who married Seth) lists sons George & Robert as serving in Rev. War, with Robert, Lt., d sp 11 Sep 1777. (no wikitree profile for that Robert)

Posted by Noland-165 on 13 Dec 2018 (02:23 GMT):

pension transcription: "I do hereby certify that Philip Richard Francis Lee, formerly a Captain in the 3rd Virginia Regiment on Continental establishment received a wound at the battle of Brandywine, on the 11th day of September 1777 of which he languished about 2 months and then died.

"Given under my hand this first day of October 1798

"S/ James Wood, late Brigadier General"

Posted by Noland-165 on 13 Dec 2018 (02:52 GMT):

So, not this Robert if the following is accurate:

Lee's Memoirs volume 1, page 16 &c – Battle of Brandywine, September 11th, 1777

Col. Henry Lee, states that, of the Captains of the 3rd Virginia Regiment commanded by Col. Marshall, engaged in the battle of Brandywine, t[w]o only, Blackwell and Peyton, remained fit for duty. Chilton was killed, and Lee* mortally wounded and that, the subalterns suffered in proportion. Lieutenants White, Cooper, and Ensign Peyton were killed.

* Presumed to have been Captain Philip Richard Francis Lee, in whose right the State of Virginia granted a Military Land Warrant or 4000 acres, on the 21st July 1784.

Still, Robert Peyton had been promoted to 2nd Lt. on 15 Aug 1777 and appears on the Nov roll of the 3rd Virginia Regiment (w/Lee).

update - 16 Nov 2023 - I may have missed pointing out some things...

  1. Phillip Lee lingered two months before dying of wounds received in September, so he would have been on the November 1777 roster
  2. Capt Peyton survived as "fit for duty"; Ens Peyton died.

Research Notes

The image for the 2nd Lieut record (Nov 1777)[2] lists him with three others as being commissioned - his date: 15th August. That entry is just below the heading, which notes that the "3rd Virginia Regiment is now in the service of the United States commanded by Col. Thomas Marshall... first day of November 1777 for two years". The image is the "Muster Roll of Capt. Philip Richard Francis [L?] Company of the 3rd Virginia Regiment...". Included in the list are
  • Philip R. Fra. Lee, Capt., commissioned March 8th, 1777 (FS transcription shows it as "Lee", which I couldn't quite make out in the image.)
  • Burr Harris (corporal)
  • Edward Harris (under Drummers & Fifers), sick in Philadelphia since 25 Dec. 1776 (there's an embellishment after Harris - don't know if it's a decoration or maybe the last name is Harrison?)
The image for the 30 Jun record[3] is pay roll for Capt. John Peyton's Company of the 3d Virginia Regiment under the command of Col. Thomas Marshall (30 Jun 1777-31 Jul 1777). Names of the officers on the roll:
  • John Peyton, Captain
  • Valentine Peyton, Lieutenant
  • John Tebbs, Lieutenant (FS transcription shows it as "Tebbs", which I couldn't quite make out in the image.)
  • Robert Peyton, Ensign
The image for the Aug 1777 record[4] is pay roll for Capt. John Peyton's Company for the month of August. Robert's name is annotated "till 15th". It's signed "Val Peyton, Lieut."
  • Robert Peyton, Ens, May 1777, military service, Virginia[5]

    • "John Peyton, son of Craven Peyton, of Loudoun County, was an officer in the Revolutionary army, and during the war was sent to Fluvanna County to purchase supplies. Three nephews, sons of his brother Valentine, joined him there, Craven, Robert and John."
    • The quote continues (from the archive.org full text version): "The nephews settled in Milton, and Robert and John died unmarried at an early age. Craven, inheriting the property of his brothers, and likely that of his uncle, who also died unmarried, became the possessor of a large estate. He purchased from the family of Bennett Henderson more than eleven hundred acres surrounding Milton, which in 1811 he sold to Mr. Jefferson. He also acquired from his father-in-law nearly a thousand acres on both sides of the Rivanna, including the old Lewis homestead of Monteagle, which he made his home. He married Jane Jefferson, ...." makes the Craven this one: Peyton-12, in WikiTree, son of Valentine m Gwatkins (Peyton-13)
    • no Robert Peyton in Albemarle, but a Henry: "Another family of the name was settled in the county. Henry Peyton became the owner of Park Hill, the old Drury Wood place near Stony Point , where he resided until his death . His wife was a sister of William P. Parish, and his sons were William, Benjamin, George L,., Dr. E. O., Bernard and Eugene, all of whom exhibited a marked degree of enterprise, some in conducting lines of Stages, and some in hotel keeping. They removed for the most part to West Virginia."

  10. I was tired when I copied the info into this page - you'll want to check the image posted in FamilySearch (I also still need to find the "Legend" that says what E., IP, AB, WD, etc. stand for. I'm guessing CL is Continental Line and BW is Bounty Warrant.

Tanya- like I said, the page started out as a workspace to figure out the Robert Peytons who served. I've started a new section for those Peytons we're more sure of - "Established Peytons

update - I've gotten citations for the 23 DAR records of Peytons added now too (there were none for "Payton"). Also transcribed the Peyton section of the FamilySearch record of Virginia Revolutionary War soldiers.

Peyton-1056 sorry, this is the correct one. I need to get some sleep. Been on the computer too long.
also, I was focusing on 1700s Peytons, and Peyton-1058 is born 1802. How is he Revolutionary War?

not at the moment... this started out as a page to figure out the records for Robert Peyton - one died 1777 at Brandywine, not sure if all the records are his or not.
