This has to do with "Quit Rent". They collected Quit Rent for years but only
one year 1704 have they found records. All land owners in VA paid to the
King an annual "Quit Rent" of one shilling for each 50 acres of land
owned.This revenue was usually donated by the Crown for the uses of the

Very interesting, do I have questions tomorrow.
Opps, I did it again. It was Edward that immigrated to Maryland in 1650. I
am sending this information anyway, because this could be the Edward that
was in VA. I read in a Hughes file ( I believe ) that there was a big ripoff
in the transporting of the immigrants. They were transported as immigrants
each time they left England for the land that England gave the immigrants.
Edward could have went back to England for his family and used Maryland as a
port of entry. So a person could be listed as a immigrant more than once. I
believe emigrant is the correct spelling? Found something last night that
was, I believe interesting. Will post next, will look at this information
again before posting.

I thought I had done #10 before but can't find it.I think it is about time
for me to let you know what my thoughts are about the VA PIONEERS.
1. The John Bowles that came to VA in 1610 and left in1612 and is said to
have returned in1622 is not the John Bowles that died in1663-4 in VA. He is
more than likely a brother of Sir George Bowles of England and the father of
George, Jon(John), Edward, and Alonzo the four brothers that came to VA
between 1636 and 1642.
2. George and John came to Accomack Co, June 18,1636. John was in Elizabeth
City Co, October 14, 1636. Same year, where he lived until he died in
1663-4. I don't know how long George stayed in VA, but emigrated to Maryland
with wife in 1650. With George in Maryland you have the three brothers in
3. Edward came to Charles River Co, March 14, 1639. Having several children.
I believe most of these children stayed close to this area. Grandchildren I
4. Alonzo is the father of the Accomack and Northampton Co Bowles families.
I don't know if Alonzo stayed in VA of went back to England at this time. I
believe these families moved to the mainland of VA after Thomas died in
1708. I believe Zachariel that died 1720 in Northampton Co was a son of
Thomas that died 1708 in Accomack Co. The children of Zachariel that died in
1720 are probably some of the last Bowles's born in these counties. This
group moved around. You will find a large group of these Bowles's in
Chesterfield Co and some of these Bowles's were the first to be in NC.
5. Now you know what I think, I need you help linking them. Will send what I
have on George emigrating to Maryland next.
Not going anyplace fast with those Va Pioneers. Here's another early
pioneer, could Alonzo be another brother?
At court holden for Northampton County 3d day of Jany.1642-3 A certificate
was granted to Capt. Francis Yeardly for 3000 acres of land for
transportation of the following persons. 58 persons.
I believe the Thomas Bowles below is the Thomas Bowles from the 1709 Will
that Mary Ann posted a few week back. Could John & Henry be the John & Henry
that came to New Kent Co in 1719? John brought his grandchildren.

There should be 30 persons transported in each list. The first list has 29
and no JON BOWLES. The second list has 27 with JON BOWLES, but is missing
Robert Pistole, Wm. Parry, and Edward Daniell. I believe JON BOWLES belongs
in this list and I am adding him to my list.

Here's some additional information on the family mentioned above.
Arthur BOWLES, mentioned on the gravestone as the husband of Mabel G.
(WOOD) BOWLES, was my grandfather.
John Andrew BOWLES (1841Jul26-1920Dec29) was a son of Joseph BOWLES (b.
1809Sep06 in the Cane Ridge area near Paris, Bourbon Co., KY; d.
1870Oct19 southeast of Beason, Logan Co., IL; bur. in Old Union
Cemetery, Tunbridge Township, DeWitt Co., IL) & Rebecca GREEN (b.
1808Oct22 in Bourbon Co., KY; d. after 1885 in Sedgwick Co., KS).
John Andrew BOWLES was born July 26, 1841 in DeWitt County, Illinois.
At the time of John's birth, the family was living on land that his
father had entered on March 15, 1831. That land is now part of Barnett
Township [Township 20 North, Range 1 East], DeWitt County, Illinois:
"the NE one-fourth of the NW one-fourth of Section 36" (Brink, McDonough
& Co., 1882, History of DeWitt County, Illinois). In 1847 (following
the death on December 28, 1846 of John A. Bowles's grandfather, Hughes
Bowles), John's father, Joseph Bowles, moved to section 2 of
Aetna Township [Township 19 North, Range 1 West], Logan County,
Illinois. This is southeast of Beason, IL. Although I have not yet
confirmed it with land records in Lincoln, IL, I believe that the
farmhouse which Joseph BOWLES and his family occupied is still standing,
occupied, and in good repair: 1450 2275th Ave., Beason, IL 62512 (North
40 degrees 7' 43.8", West 89 degrees 10' 4.4"). John A. Bowles later
reported that he had moved to Logan County "about 1847" (Donnelley,
Loyd, & Co., 1878, History of Logan County, Illinois: Its Past and
Present, p. 443). This farmhouse was probably built by Joseph Bowles,
and it is the probable birthplace of the eight children of John Andrew
Bowles (1841Jul26-1920Dec29) and Mary E. Hall (1846Jan17-1917Feb18):
Charles H. Bowles (1865Jul15-1887Oct22), Joseph Warren Bowles "Warren"
(1867Mar01-1951May05), Ora Frances (Bowles) Suit "Ora"
(1868Nov29-1946Jan12), Alva Martin Bowles "Alvy" (1870Mar26-1940Mar27),
Ida Florence (Bowles) Johnson "Ida" (1872Jan31-1968Dec), John K. Bowles
(1876Sep23/1876Oct23-1961Oct05), Albert Byron Bowles "Byron"
(1878Sep23-1938Apr08), and Arthur Garfield Bowles "A.G."
In August 1862, during the U.S. Civil War, John, then 21, had cared for
wounded soldiers at the Second Battle of Manassas as a member of
Illinois Company E, Unit 68, Infantry--his last name recorded as Boles,
and the nearby town of Clinton, IL listed as his residence.
On October 20, 1864, John A. Bowles (1841Jul26-1920Dec29) wed Mary E.
Hall (1846Jan17-1917Feb18), the daughter of Greenberry W. HALL
(1820Aug22-1856Dec31) & Mary Achsah ELY (1820Sep17-). The wedding in
1864 almost certainly took place in the Old Union Christian Church,
Barnett Township, DeWitt County, Illinois; John's grandfather, Hughes
Bowles (b. 1786Mar05 in Goochland Co., VA; d. 1846Dec28 in DeWitt Co.,
IL), was the first minister to preach in that church, which was still
standing in 1882, when it was featured in Brink, McDonough, & Company's
History of DeWitt County, Illinois (1882). Mary E. Hall's paternal
great grandfather was "Mahlon Hall, a Virginian, [who] settled on
section 33 in Township 20 [North] Range 1 East [Barnett Township, DeWitt
County, IL] in 1830, was in 1839 the largest landholder in the county,
owning 1200 acres of land, valued at $4600.00, died in 1856" (Brink,
McDonough, & Co., 1882, History of DeWitt County, Illinois). Mary E.
Hall's maternal grandparents were Solomon ELY (1798May13-1869), who was
born in Virginia, and his wife Rachael Turner (1800Jul14-). Following
their marriage on 1818Aug27 in Harlan Co., KY, Solomon and Rachel were
living in Tennessee when their daughter Mary Achsah Ely was born; they,
too, had settled in Barnett Township, DeWitt County, Illinois [east half
of the southeast one-fourth of Section 26, Township 20 North,
Range 1 East].
Circa 1868, John A. Bowles (then 27 years old), while farming 160 acres
in section 2 of Aetna Township, Beason Post Office, Logan County,
Illinois, also began serving as "school director"--a post which he
continued at least through 1878 (Donnelley, Loyd, & Co., 1878, History
of Logan County, Illinois: Its Past and Present, p. 443). William F.
Bowles, one of John's older brothers, had previously held the post of
school director. The site of the "Bowles School," located at
approximately North 40 degrees 7' 27.1", West 89 degrees 10' 7.3", is
still evident because frost heaves in the farm field annually bring up
remnants of the structure (fragments of bricks, windows, and old desks).
Around 1882, John A. Bowles, Mary E. (Hall) Bowles, and their children
moved to the vicinity of Mulvane, Sumner County, Kansas.
1889-1890. Land just west of Lacey, Kingfisher County, Indian
Territory, to which the Bowles family moved in 1890, was distributed in
the April 22, 1889 Land Rush. No Bowles-surname households were
recorded in the 1890 Oklahoma Territorial Census of Kingfisher County,
which indicates that the family moved from Kansas after the land rush of
April 22, 1889 and after the 1890 census was taken.
The 50th wedding anniversary of John Andrew Bowles and Mary Elizabeth
(Hall) Bowles was celebrated on October 20, 1914 (The Ames, Oklahoma
Enterprise, October 29, 1914). [The "6" and "4" of their 1864 wedding
date were erroneously transposed to 1846 in the History of Logan County,
Illinois: Its Past and Present (Donnelley, Loyd, & Co., 1878, p. 443).]

Here are potential Bowles in the NC census and other records for the years
1770 to 1790. As with previous postings, I have attempted to include many
variations of spelling for the surname "Bowles." Certainly, some of these
other spellings are not Bowles, but other legitimate surnames such as Bales,
Boyles or Byars. But, it is also possible that some of our Bowles ancestors
are hiding under these spelling variations.

609. ZACHARIAH BOWLDS, born in Daviess County, Ky., May 9, 1825, was a
son of John Bowlds, an early settler of this county. His mother died when
he was eighteen months old, and his father then moved to Nelson County,
where he died when Zachariah was five years old. In the fall of 1839 he
returned to this county and has since made this his home. He owns 100
acres of good land and is engaged in general farming, though he makes a
specialty of tobacco. In 1851 he married Francis, daughter of Henry Wells.
They have four children--John H., Mary S., Charles Z. and William H. The
family are members of the Catholic church.

Henry Petty was the lawsuit guardian for the last three children named.
The Law Office of Gorin & Rogers in Glasgow, KY is mentioned.
Anderson R. and Malvina Bowles - eldest son and widow - were
adminstrators of John F.'s estate. The suit was brought against them on
behalf of the younger children. It was alleged that the two
administrators had used the monies derived from the estate for their own
purposes. Judgment given in favor of the children. Malinda said she had
handed over all her duties when she remarried, but that a third of the
money was her dower.

With the lawsuit accounts is the will of an Anderson Bowles dated 28
April 1811. I had thought that it was the will of Gideon's son Anderson,
(husband of Jane Thomas), who died soon after arrival in St Louis in
1812. But I now see it is not. Nor is it Anderson's son, who went on
from MO to MS. The will predates most of the lawsuit names, except
Jackky. Is this Jackky our John Fleming Bowles ? In my wife's Bowles
line, Jintz or Ginsey is a nickname for Jane, but that's later. I've seen
Andersons nicknamed Jacky according to some contributors. I'll return
to this puzzle Meanwhile, I hope the lawsuit data is of value. Good

Subj: BOWLES, Clearanna 1670
Date: 12/23/99 10:32:39 AM Mountain Standard Time
Once again, I am looking to see of anyone has any information about my
ancestor Clearanna BOWLES. She was born in 1670 in Calvert, MD, and was the
daughter of Valentine BOWLES. She married William BILLINGSLEY in 1691. She
died after 1716.
