Biography

Any (supported) information to verify or refute the details presented here is most welcome.

First Located: 1635, London, England

Edward Wade emigrated from England to Virginia on board the ship Paule in July, 1635, Aged 24 years. Leonard Betts, Master, bound to Virginia per certificate from the Minister of Gravesend of their Conformitie to the Church of England. Info from National Archieves Ships List - American Genealogical Research Society.

York County Records, Book 2 from "Virginia Colonial Abstracts", Volume 1, by Beverly Fleet. Note: Book 2 ends in 1648 but the next book, called Book 1 begins 1652. Therefore, four years are skipped. Page 88: (Amount) Due to the estate of Reverend Geo. Hopkins Dec 1644. 84 tytheable persons at 1 bushel per poll is 56 barr, 4 bush. (Various Names) Page 89: Elias Richardson Edward Wade Richard Harrison Page 129: Indenture 10 September 1640 between Wm Caynehooe of Cheskeack, Clerk, Signed 1642 Reassigned, 27 October 1642 and Signed. Charles Deny assigns all rights to this lease. 27 ___ 1643. Witness Edward Wade Page 195: Bill Dated 9 October 1646. Chas. Deny to pay Edward Wade 1600 lbs tobo. 10 October next. Signed. Witness Robert Harrison, Edw. Jenkins. Deny to bind 3 cows as security.

In the following source, some of the patents are the same as above. This is just a different source, but since it goes further, it also includes Edward Wade making his own patent by 1662. If he was the first Edward mentioned in the colonial records, he would be about 50 years old. When he made one of his pattents he refers to land owned by Francis Burwell who also had Thomas Hampton as a neighbor. At this time, Edward lived in Hampton Parish, York County. This is the first time Edward Wade and Thomas Hampton are shown living near each other. Therefore sometime after this date, it would be easy to imagin that one of Edward's sons married Thomas Hampton's daughter, Mary.

Cavaliers and Pioneers Patent Book Number 1, Part II Robert Martin, 250 acres, Lower New Nor. Co. 12 October 1638, Beg in Eliz. R. due for his own per. adv. & trans. of his wife Elizabeth martin, Edward Wade, Robert Masters, Rebecca Smith.

Edward Wade received land Patent 1662, Diascund Swamp, Chickahominy River, York County, Virginia

Cavaliers and Pioneers, Volume 1, Patent Book 5, Pages 342, 351 and 543 Edward Wade was in Virginia by 18 March 1662 when, as Mr. Edward Wade, he received a patent for 350 acres of land when were part of a tract of 2000 acres belonging to Mr. Francis Burwell. Wade's parcel adjoined lands of John Johnson and Adam Miles. On 18 June 1663 Mr. Edward Wade acquired 150 acres in York County which formerly had belonged to William Cainho who died with the land reverting to the king. A patent to John Overstreet on 07 September 1667 described his 37 acres of land as being in Hampton Parish, York County, adjacent to Edward Wade, Jeoffrey Moore, Thomas Dennet and Zachary Padeyes.

York County Records - Book 1, continued from "Virginia Colonial Abstracts", Volume 1, by Beverly Fleet. Page 342: Martin Baker to Edward Wade (sic) 100 acres, 5 September 1652. Witness Adam Myles, John Fripps recorded July 1650 by then clerk, Robert Bouth, Second assignment 24 June 1675 by Thos. Ballard, Cl. Cur.

Records of York County, William Mary Quarterly, volume 26, Number 1 (July 1917), Pages 27-37. William Hatton's Contempt of Court 24 October 1662 Whereas William Hatton (who formerly complained of by Mr. Edmond Peeters (sic) one of his Majesties Justices for contemning his warrant) was this day presented to the court by Edward Wade, Church warden of Hampton Parish.

The fact that Edward Wade was addressed as "Mr." in his patents indicates that he was a man of some stature and importance in the colony.

I've cleaned up this profile by removing all of the dead Ancestry links and other GEDCOM stuff, and copied some substantiated information from kueber.us into the text.

Also to note is that Edward's stated mother Ann Waller has a death date 22 years before his birth date; I've marked this relationship as uncertain.

Regarding the note below that says Edward Wade was the son of an Edward Wade of Brampton, Northamptonshire, England , it doesn't seem to prove that it is this Edward Wade, and in fact seems very unlikely to be this Edward Wade, as it says he was a vicar in Guilsborough, Northamptonshire in 1644, 9 years after this Edward emigrated to the colonies.

Thanks - Gary

Edward WADE born 1611 England; By Fonda Baselt March 04, 2009

the following undated note from an English librarian that confirms Edward Wade born 1611 was the son of Edward Wade of Brampton, Northamptonshire, England and not the son of William.

"Wade, Edward, s[on of] Edward, of Brampton, Northants [Northamptonshire], sacerd (priest], CHRIST CHURCH matric [joined Christ Church College] 4 May 1627 aged 16. B.A. from Brasenose Coll[ege] 3 July 1628; M.A. from CHRIST CHURCH 30 April 1631; vicar of Guilsborough, Northants, 1644."

This is a note from Theresa Thom, Librarian of Gray's Inn, London.

There is strong evidence that the immigrant ancestor to Virginia for this Wade family was a descendant of Armagil/Armigel Wade/Waad. Armagil was born 1514 in Kilnsey, near Coniston, Yorkshire, England, and died June 20, 1568. Armagil was educated at Magdalen College, Oxford, and received a degree January 23, 1531/2. A few years later in 1536, he was a voyager to Newfoundland aboard the ship "Minion" as recorded in Hore's "Voyages." He may have actually made several voyages according to different sources and is often referred to as "the English Columbus" by historians. He was also listed in Fuller's "Worthies of Yorkshire." In 1540, he received his first government position as Clerk of the Council at Calais. In 1547, he was elected to Parliament. In King Henry VIII's Privy Council, Armagil started as third clerk and in 1552 became Chief Clerk. Under Edward VI, he retained that position. When Queen Mary ascended to the thrown, he lost his offices but was restored to a prominent position under Queen Elizabeth. He was the prime liaison officer in 1562 with the French Huguenots when he mustered 600 men to fight at Le Havre. He had leased the estate of Belsize House, near London, from the Dean of St. Pauls. Belsize became the family seat and that is where he died. He was buried in Hampstead Church (now destroyed) with a monument, the memorial plaque of which was written in Latin. According to early 20th century genealogist Stuart Charles Wade, it translated as: "Sacred to the memory of Armigel Waad, the best and most kind of parents, a descendant of an ancient Yorkshire family, Secretary of the Privy Council of Henry VIII and Edward VI, and a justice of the Peace for the County of Middlesex, who--proficient in very many of the most important arts, excellently versed in civil jurisprudence, very familiar with many languages--discharged divers most honorable embassies and was the first English explorer of the Indies of America. By his two wives, Alice Patten and Anne Marbury, (d) he gave to the world twenty children, and after a life honorably and most conscientiously passed, died in the spring of the year 1568, when on the 20th day of June he placidly fell asleep in the Lord... William Waad, the eldest son and heir, and also Secretary of the Lady Elizabeth's Privy Council, has erected this monument."

At right is Christopher Saxon's map of Elizabethan England. London is the dark spot in lower right of center. Hampstead Church and the Belsize estate were west of London; Manuden, Essex is a little southeast of London. All of Armagil/Armigel Wade/Waad's children from his first wife predeceased him. However, from his second wife Alice Patten, 1515-1568, daughter of Richard Patten, born 1490, six of seventeen children survived. Four are listed in Armagil Wade's will: William Wade, 1546-1623; Thomas, born 1547, who became of "reader of the law"; and two daughters Joyce and Ann. It is William that some genealogists, notably Stuart C. Wade, attribute as the father of immigrant Edward Wade, 1611-1677. William continued working for the Crown. He served as Lt. Governor of the Tower of London during the Gunpowder Plot of 1605 and continued in that position until 1613. He was Queen Elizabeth's Privy Council Secretary. Elizabeth sent him to Mary, Queen of Scots, to persuade Mary to reconcile. In 1586, he seized Mary's papers which implicated her in the Babington Plot against Queen Elizabeth. Subsequently, he traveled to France to explain to that country's government Mary's execution. He was a member of Parliament for a number of terms and was knighted by James I May 20, 1603. Sir William died at his estate Battles Hall, Essex, 1623. He is buried at Manuden Church nearby. Like his father he has a memorial plaque; however, William's is in English and his church is still standing. That William Wade was the father of Edward, 1611-1677, has not been proven with a primary source. That relationship is based on circumstantial evidence: 1. that William was a shareholder in the Virginia Colony; 2. that Edward came to Virginia wealthy; 3. that Edward repeated family first names such as William, Edward, Jane, and Dorothy; 4. that there is some disagreement as to the number and gender of William's children. Additionally, there is the family tradition that the Wades of Virginia descend from father Armagil through his son William. Even Wikepedia Encyclopedia states, "...the Wades of Virginia claim descent from his [William's] father." Whether Edward's father was William or William's brother Thomas or a unnamed nephew of Armagil, we can only speculate at this point. Since I like to retain the family stories and traditions until proof to the contrary comes to light, I have chosen to give this historical prelude of our Wade relatives. info for the above from "Immigrant Ancestors," by Frederick Adams Virkus, Genealogical Publishing Co., 1980; also from "The Compendium of American Genealogy," vol. VII, 1942; British History Online, etc. Generation No. 1 1. Edward1 Wade was born 1611, London, England, and died Bet. November 09, 1675 - April 24, 1677 in Virginia.

One of his daughters, possibly Margaret, must have married a Bond, and had a son, Samuel.

Record of Heirs: January 15, 1676/77, York County, Virginia Estate Administration: April 24, 1677, York County, Virginia (Russell Family.GED) His son, Edward Wade, Jr., appears to me to be have been born in America, but that wasn't actually stated in the records I read--I'm just inferring that by the dates of birth and immigration. The son who is next in line of descent is Andrew Wade, born about 1670 in Virginia. He and his wife (whose name is still unknown) were the parents of six sons and possibly one unnamed daughter, the son through which we're descended being Robert Wade. Robert married Elizabeth Hampton and had ten children that we know of: Edward Wade, Sr., who fought in the Revolutionary War, and his wife, Mary Clements or Clemons, being in our direct line. Their son, David Wade, born in Virginia in 1747, married Agnes Hardy and had 13 children, one of whom, Edward Wade, Sr. (a different one--they liked to name their children after relatives) is in our direct line. He was born in 1762 and married Lucy Burford (not Buzford, as was earlier reported), had at least three children we know of--and four more are possible. Edward Jr., the one in our direct line, born in 1804, married Josephine Wehanna, to become the parents of Thomas Jesse Wade, and from there we know where we are. 1.

York County Records, Book 2 from "Virginia Colonial Abstracts", Volume 1, by Beverly Fleet. (Note: Book 2 ends in 1648 but the next book, called Book 1 begins 1652.

In the following source, some of the patents are the same as above. This is just a different source, but since it goes further, it also includes Edward Wade making his own patent by 1662. If he was the first Edward mentioned in the colonial records, he would be about 50 years old. When he made one of his patents he refers to land owned by Francis Burwell who also had Thomas Hampton as a neighbor. At this time Edward lived in Hampton Parish, York County. This is the first time Edward Wade and Thomas Hampton are shown living near each other. Therefore, sometime after this date it would be easy to imagine that one of Edward's sons married thomas Hampton's daughter, Mary.

Wade's parcel adjoined lands of John Johnson and Adam Miles. On 18 June 1663 Mr. Edward Wade acquired 150 acres in York County which formerly had belonged to William Cainho (same as Caynehooe?) who died with the land reverting to the king. A patent to John Overstreet on 07 September 1667 described his 37 acres of land as being in Hampton Parish, York County, adjacent to Edward Wade, Jeoffrey Moore, Thomas Dennet and Zachary Padeyes.

Whereas William Hatton (who formerly complained of by Mr. Edmond Peeters (sic) one of his Majesties Justices for contemning hes warrant) was this day presented to the court by Edward Wade, Church Warden of Hampton Parish. The fact that Edward Wade was addressed as "Mr." in his patents indicates that he was a man of some stature and importance in the colony.
