  • Name Temperance Bailey/Bayley 
    • After King James of Scotland mounted the English throne, he gave his approval for attempts to be made to colonize the New World, and granted charters to the newly organized London Company. The London Company offered each subscriber who would pay twelve pounds and twelve shillings the following: "Lord of 200 acres of land which would be given to him and his heirs forever." Several members of the Bailey family held large shares in this company. The fact that Temperance Bailey, at age 3, had 200 acres of land in her name, might have been her inheritance from her deceased father. Patent to Temperance Bailey, Sept. 20, 1620. The land of John Rolfe and Pocahontas, on the south side of the James River, bordered that of Samuel Jordan, Temperance Baley (Bailey), and Capt. Woodleif in 1620.

      Notes for Abraham Bailey,Sr:
      #5 updated Apr 2004
      Compiled by Donna Beers (Bailey database) 453 NW 171 Rd, Warrensburg, MO 64093

      It has never been proven that Abraham is a son of Arthur Bailey (db)
      inv. 1713 Wills, Henrico Co,VA (Torrence)
      Arrived in America 1678
      Following from "Andrew Bailey, Jr's Chronicles" Pfafftown, NC; Eunilee Leath & Frank Bailey, 1989.
      Andrew Jr states about Abraham:
      About the year 16_ a ship from England was sailing for America; a storm arose and sunk the ship and a stalwart
      young man swam ashore with his shoe maker tools wrapped in a leather apron and lashed to the back of his neck
      and he might have been seen wending his way up the north side of the James River to within six miles of shock
      Hills, where Richmond now stands - -------- This English shoemaker was old Abraham Bailey, as my father used
      to call him----.
      Another interesting document does the same thing as Andrew but only from Abraham Bailey to Roger Cocke
      Bailey. Abraham Bailey and William Bailey were both known about by Peter Bailey, and apparently he
      considered both of them to be kinfolk. Peter Cocke Bailey considered Abraham Bailey to be the one he
      descended from. The fact that he singled Abraham out as the one he descended from seems to exclude William as
      being direct lineage. (See Peter Bailey's Revolution War Pension Request page 20- this bk)
      ABRAHAM BAILEY (Sr.) died ca 1713 (Inventory, Cockes and Cousins, Vol. II, p. 8). Cavaliers, Vol. II, p.
      325, states, "Mr. Thomas Peren, 140 acres Henrico Co. in Verina Par. on N side of James Riv. 20 Oct. 1688, p.

      The Bowen land was on the north side of the Meherrin River in what is now the southeastern part of Lunenburg
      Co. Bowen's land was on the lower (downriver) side of Little Creek while Mize's land above Stony Creek
      (upriver) was adjoining.
      No records have been found to help determine when William Bowen had this land surveyed, but he had
      undoubtedly held the land for several years before the patent was granted. He and wife Amy sold the entire patent
      to Henry Bailey in 1749. Henry Bailey and his wife Avis had previously been residents of Bristol Parish.

      Note: The date 1643 obviously was in error. The patent was actually dated Oct 1, 1747. This date was corrected
      in a later Bailey deed involving this land. The witness Reuben Vaughan was named as a son in the 1740 will of

      Paths, the head of the Spring branch, part of a larger tract containing 326 acres formerly patented to William
      Bowing dated Oct 1, 1747, and by him sold to Henry Bailey by deed recorded in Lunenburg. Wit Robert
      Campbell, James Tomason, Jane Bailey. Rec 1 July 1755
      On 26 Nov 1761, William Bailey sold 220 acres with the same description to John Bailey. (DB 10 p 213) It was
      described as adjoining Little Creek, James Mize, Stephen Mize, the lower end of the Race Paths, a new line, and
      the spring branch. Witnesses were Matthew Turner Jr, Abraham Meremoon, and William Turner.
      Even though William Bowen Sr and wife Amy had sold the entire patent of 326 acres to Henry Bailey in 1749,
      some of the later records still referred to the Bowen survey. At first I thought this was an indication that a William
      Bowen still owned land in the area as late as 1761, but I don't believe that was the case.

      Henry Bailey's wife was named Avis in the Bristol Parish birth records for their children from 1727 to 1735. His
      Lunenburg will written in 1761 also named wife Avis. No records have been found that indicate that he had a
      daughter named Avis Bailey.
      George son of Henry & Amy Baley b. 2 June 1725.
      John son of Henry & Avis Balie b. 23 Oct. 1727; bap. July 28, 1728.
      William son of Henry & Avice Baly b. 10 May 1733; bapt. 17th June.
      Martha, dau. of Henry & Avis Baley b. Mar. 30, 1735; bapt. 4th May.
      The 1761 Lunenburg Co will of Henry Bailey named wife Avis Bailey, son William Bailey, and mentioned other
      children but didn't name them.
      According to information concerning the Wray family at
      ml (which I have not researched to verify, but the names given agree with the wills I have found), Stephen Mize's
      wife Avis was the daughter of John Wray, Sr and Frances Oher Bailey b 1720. Since Henry Bailey's will was
      witnessed by a John Wray and the Bailey land adjoined the Mize land, it's my guess that Frances Oher Bailey was
      probably an earlier daughter born to Henry Bailey and Avis who was not recorded in the Bristol Parish birth
      records. So again it appears that the name Avis can be traced back to its origins in Bristol Parish.
      Notes for Avis ?:
      The name Avis is an uncommon name. For it to appear in so many families that lived near each other is certainly
      worthy of note. At least four of these families, the Bowens, Andrews, Baileys, and Grangers, had moved to
      Lunenburg from Bristol Parish, so the origin of the name seems to trace back to Bristol Parish. Certainly the
      wives of Robert Bowen, William Andrews, and Henry Bailey must have been three different women since they
      were all producing children during the same period. It is not possible that any two of them could have been the

      usual Bounds thereof, during and for her natural life, and after her decease,
      I Give, Devise and bequeath, the aforesaid land and premises with all its Appurtenances profits Emoluments, to

      also the one half of -my stock- Household and Kitchen Furniture and one Horse, during and for her natural life
      and after her death I give and Devise and Bequeath the aforesaid Negro Boy Jack, the one half of my Stock,
      Household and Kitchen Furniture and the Horse I before lent to my Wife, unto my grandson Richard Redford to

      Item: my-Will and desire is that my (granddaughter Mary Winfrie and now the wife of Stephen Winfrie) should
      have two of' my Negroes named Fanny and Amea, but on the following conditions that whereas some slight words
      passed a number of years ago betwixt COCKE BAILEY (father of the said Mary) and myself concerning my

      increase which since I have sold a Child of Sall's by the name of Sylvia unto my son-in-law John Redford (as I
      considered the words I spoke to be no ways binding on me to make the gift) and the said Mary together with her
      Husband Stephen Winfrie, since threatens to bring suit for the Negro Sylvia and her increase after my decease.
      Now it is so that if she the said Mary or her husband Stephen Winfrie or any of their surviving Heirs, Executors or

      Heirs and Assigns forever
      My Will and desire is that the other half of my Stock, Household and Kitchen Furniture (not lent to my wife) be
      sold at my decease, and the Negro Woman Sall be sold at my wifes decease at the discretion of my Executors, and

      Richard Henry Lee BAILEY was a Justice of the Lunenburg County Court,
      1856-186 0. His farm is located on State Route 640 North of the Meheran
      river in Lunenburg County, in the area described in a Regal patent to
      his grandfather.
      ancestory on-line>
      We can trace our Bailey line to Richard Henry Lee Bailey. He and other
      members of "our" line of the Bailey family are in Lunenburg County,
      Virginia, in the early 1800's. This branch of the family calls home a
      part of Lunenburg that is just north of the Meheran River and adjacent
      to the lands of the Vaughan family (who we met in the chapter about
      the Powers). Some portions of that land remain in the family's hands
      today (1994). And there is a small overgrown family cemetery next to
      the Bailey home place (It is located West of the home, north of state
      route 640, about 0.7 mile west of the intersection with Route 643.
      Salem Church, now deserted, is at that intersection).
      Harry Bailey, shortly before his death, took your author to the area
      and indicated the land had been in the family even before Richard H.L.
      Bailey. The land, therefore, becomes the key!
      We have been unable to find the name of Richard's father or mother,
      but we have been able to trace that land. That land was given to one
      Henry Bailey in a Regal Patent on 12 May 1759 (Patent Book #34, page
      245). That land is described as 590 acres, north of the Meheran and
      adjacent to the Vaughan family land.
      It is unlikely that Henry is Richard H.L. Bailey's father (if Henry
      was 25 when he was given the land, he would have been over 68 when
      Richard was born!). We believe Henry is Richard H.L. Bailey's
      Grandfather. Henry's will (at least one that seems to match) does
      exist in Lunenburg County records (Will Book #2, p.15). This Henry
      Bailey mentions his wife Avis and a son William, who is the executor
      of the will and who gets "...the land and plantation where I now
      live." There is, however, reference to other -- un-named -- children.
      And so, while William Bailey is an excellent candidate for Richard
      H.L.'s father, there are other possibilities.
      On 1 Jul 1755, Henry Bailey transfers land in Lunenburg County to
      William, John and George (DB 4, p.137, 139, 141). These could be sons
      of Henry. Lunenburg records at that time also refer to Thomas, Robert,
      # 5 Abraham Bailey
      a younger Henry (perhaps a Henry Jr.), and an Anselm.
      One other note about William Bailey, son of Henry and possible father
      to Richard H.L. Bailey. Landon Bell's book "Lunenburg: The Old Free
      State" notes a Revolutionary war unit under Cpt. John Stokes. That
      unit was formed around Lunenburg County and included in its November
      1778 pay roll one William Bailey.

      Part of Pension Request of Peter Bailey
      Revolutionary War
      I was born the 9th day of October 1762 in Henrico County Virginia six miles
      below Richmond on James River. The first rudiments of lerning I got was in Warwick
      Town before the British burnt it. My ancestors was the first that settled at James Town
      in Virginia, William and Abraham Baileys, and I am one of the offspring of the latter.
      My Grand-father Abraham Bailey died in Henrico County. By his will left me three
      negros which was taken by the British, and I never got them nor pay. And at the time I
      was at the South in the American army. My mother dieing in Henrico. My father
      married again, and moved to Charlotte County Virginia, and from there to Mecklinburg
      County adjoining; near Grandville County, North Carolina. My father went in the army
      and left me with my stepmother. I left her and went in to Grandville County North
      Carolina and volunteered under Captain Richard Taylor of Grandville. And from the
      time I went in the army, I never was out for upward of two years. As you have in my
      former Declaration, up to Eutaw Springs, where I left off. I was somewhat indisposed at
      the Eutaw Springs. General Lawson of Charlotte County Virginia and General Buttler,
      of north Carolina told me that when I got so that I could to go home, so I did, with John
      Pimminton, Shadreck Whit, Mical Whitlow, William Scandling, John Lockling and John
      Consolver, every one of us had been wounded. Altho I had been wounded three times.
      I was the best off. As to John Consolver he had both arms cut off. I got in to my
      beloved state that I got my birth in after being gone upward of two years.
      In a few days after I had got in by beloved state and county they were about to
      raise troops to go to York Town. At a place called Abbets, now Coffin Point. I joint
      the tour of duty with the lot of Captain Richard Whitten. By signing many he did not
      go. Col. Yates and Col. Murray was the two Cols. of the County. They insisted that, I
      should take the command of the company. I refused until the soldiers cryed out take
      command and go with us. I did so as captain. We marched in four miles of Petersburg
      at the Rickory ground. There we was organized and I was with others sent back as
      supernumerary. Their endeth my military campaigns.
      I am about to write somethings as relates to the last war. I shall begin with the
      Pensilvany Ihsurgants. There was a call for men from the county by General Richard
      Fennon. There was a meeting among the men. The General applied to me to go and
      quell it. They will mind you, but me they will not, for many of them taut side by side
      with you. The General offered me the best horse that he had to go as Captain with the
      men, the men was desirous also. But I had married and had to settle a/c at home.
      When the Leopard Vessel belonging to the British attact the Chessepeak we had
      to order men. Pegram was our general. He tried to raise Volunteers but could not. I
      told him I thought that I could* I did so and raised them, and was appointed by the men
      as there Captain. If you ever have heard any thing derogatory the man and substance
      will be there respectfully received on the presention of this. I hope you will write to me.

      He worked as a farmer and fought in the Revolutionary War in units from North Carolina. There is, however,
      substantial evidence that his claim for a military persion was fraudulent, that he was actually born in 1767 or
      1768, that he never served in the military, and that he was in fact a convict at the Penitentiary in Virginia.

      Jump to: navigation, search

      Cicely "Reynolds" Bailey Jordan Farrar (or Cecily, Cecely, Cicily, or even Sislye) is commonly found listed under the name Cicely Reynolds or Cicely Reynolds Bailey. She was born in England about 1600, immigrated to Jamestown on the Swan in 1610, and died in Virginia, presumably in the mid- to late 1600s. As such, she was one of the first European-born women to reach the New World. It is not known with any certainty why she left England, nor with whom she traveled. Further, her maiden name cannot be said, with much confidence, to have been "Reynolds", although that name is usually applied to her. The earliest mention of her is in The muster of the inhabitants the Colledge land in Virginia taken the 23rd January 1624/25 in which she is listed as "Sisley Jordan".

      Her first husband, a man named Bailey, fathered Cicely's first child, Temperance Bailey, but died soon thereafter. By the time she was 20, she had remarried, to Samuel Jordan, who had founded a settlement on the James River, "Jordan's Journey". She had at least one, and perhaps several children with Samuel Jordan. During the course of that second marriage, Cicely encountered two men who were soon to compete to become her third spouse.

      A major Indian attack occurred against the Europeans in 1622, and Jordan's Journey, being well-fortified, was one of the few local plantations to survive. Samuel Jordan died the next year, 1623.

      Cicely, in her early 20s, again found herself the object of male devotion. In fact, there were rivals. Mr. or Rev. Greville Pooley, often characterized as a local parson, apparently soon declared his interest in her. So fervent was his courtship that he believed he had succeeded in winning Cicely's somewhat worn hand. Shortly, though, it became obvious that Cicely preferred William Farrar, and intended to choose him. During the Indian attack of 1622, the young Farrar had taken refuge at Jordan's Journey, had somehow failed to leave, and so was very well known to her.

      Mr. Pooley took his case to the authorities. According to The Records of the Virginia Company of London (vol. 4, p. 218):
      ? Captain Isack Maddeson sworne and examined saith that (as near as he remenbeth) the first motion to him by Mr. Grivell, touching a match with Mrs. Jordan was about three or four days after the Mr. Jordan?s death, who entreating this examinant to move the matter to her, he answered he was unwilling to meddle in any such business; but being urged by him he did move it. Mrs. Jordan replied that she would as willingly have him as any other, but she would not marry any man until she delivered. After this Mr. Pooley (having had some private talk with Mrs. Jordan) told this examinant that he had contracted himself unto her, and desired him and his wife to be witnesses of it, whereupon Mr. Pooley desiring a dram of Mrs. Jordan, and she bidding her servant fitch it said he would have it of her fetching or not at all. Then she went into a room, and the examinant and Mr. Pooley went to her, but whether she were privy to his intent this examinant knoweth not; when Mr. Pooley was come of her, he told her he would contract himself unto her and spake these words. I Grivell Pooley take thee Sysley to my wedded wife, to have and to hold till death us depart and there to I plight thee my troth. Then (holding her by the hand) he spake these words I Sysley take thee Grivell to my wedded husband, to have and to hold till death us depart; but this examinant heard not her say any of those words, neither doth he remember that Mr. Pooley asked her whether she did consent to those words or that she did answer ant things which he understood. then Mr. Pooley and she drank each to other and he kissed her and spake these words, I am thine and thou art mine till death us separate. Mrs. Jordan then desired that it might not be revealed that she did so soon bestow her love, after her husbands death; whereupon Mr. Pooley promised before God that he would not reveal it, till she thought the time fitting.

      Mary Maddeson sworne and examined saith, that she was not present at the making of the supposed contract between Mr. Pooley and Mrs. Jordan say if Mr. Pooley had not revealed it he might have fared better and saith further that her husband told her that night, that Mrs. Jordan had made her self sure to Mr. Pooley, but what words passed her husband did not particularly repeat, but spake of their drinking to the other and of Mr. Pooley saluting her.

      John Harris sworne and examined saith that he heard Mrs. Jordan say tha Mr. Pooley maught thank himself for he might fared the better but for his own words.
      Historic marker from the Virginia Dept. Historic Resources, at the site of "Jordan's Journey", on the south shore of the James River near Hopewell, Virginia, mentioning Cicely Jordan in the closing sentence.

      Mr. Pooley apparently had the ingenious idea of marrying Cicely as both groom and parson, and greatly speeding up the whole process by combining proposal with ceremony. His argument was, essentially, the New World?s first breach-of-promise suit. He continued the suit for years, but, meanwhile, Cicely married William Farrar, an attorney himself. The legal problems with Mr. Pooley ended with his death during an Indian battle in about 1629. Farrar, it is believed, died a few years later, in about 1635, after Cicely had had two Farrar children.

      Cicely is often credited with two further marriages after the death of William Farrar: to Peter Montague and to Thomas Parker. These marriages, though, are not well-documented, and may merely be the consequence of several different women named "Cicely" being combined in various records.

      Her date of death is unknown.

      The preponderance of evidence that Temperance Baley was indeed the widow of John Browne necessitates revisions about Richard Cocke of Bremo which follow:

      Richard Cocke (1602-1665) Born in the Parish of Stottensden, Shropshire, England; immigrated to the Colony of Virginia ca. 1627; resided in Charles City Co., until ca. 1638, when he moved to Bremo, Henrico Co., where he died and is buried. In 1632 he represented Weyanoke, Charles City Co. in the Grand Assembly; in 1644 and in 1654--55, he represented Henrico County. Married, first, ca 1632, Temperance Baley (Bailey, Bayley) (1617 possibly ca 1652) daughter of ___ __ and Sisley ([Reynolds]_?) Baley Jordan- Farrar
      Their first child was THOMAS COCKE (1638/9-1697), who in 1672 referred to himself as 'Thomas cocke of Pickthorn Farm in the County of Henrico."

      Richard Cocke of Henrico, Virginia By Steven R. Day, in Unknown Source. [possibly from Magazine of Virginia Genealogy 45 (3)]
      Richard Cocke of Henrico, Va By Steven R. Day
      November 1, 2007
      English Origins
      The Parish of Stottesdon lies in Shropshire, England. (Another name for Shropshire is Salop). In the late 1500s, the Parish of Stottesdon consisted of about sixteen small communities including Pickthorn, Walfurlong, the Heath, Walton, and Stottesdon. Most of these communities had between three and ten families. Stottesdon had about twenty families. This was the time of Queen Elizabeth I and William Shakespeare.

      Pickthorn dates back to a bit before 1165. In 1582, Pickthorn belonged to John Purslow who leased the land to about four families. William Cocke and his brother, Thomas Cocke, headed two of these families. Other members of the Cocke family lived nearby in Walfurlong and the Heath. William and Elizabeth Cocke had sons named Richard, Thomas, William, John, a daughter named Margery all of whom were unmarried in November of 1582. They also had a daughter who married Thomas Deuxhill. William and Elizabeth may have also had a son, Robert. It was in 1582 that William (the father) died at Pickthorn.[i][1]

      In the winter of 1596, Elizabeth Cocke was living in the parish of Stottesdon (probably in Walton) at the home of her son-in-law, Thomas Deuxhill.[ii][2] She was very ill. Elizabeth?s granddaughters, Mary and Joyce Deuxhill, had spent three nights watching over Elizabeth. In the early hours of Christmas morning, Elizabeth realized that death would soon claim her. She asked Mary to call her son, John Cocke, who was sleeping in another room of the house. That same morning, Roger Deuxhill (brother of Mary and Joyce), arose early and set out from his home for a trip to Bewdley Market. On his way, he stopped to check on his grandmother, Elizabeth. It was about the break of day when Roger entered the house and found Mary and Joyce (his sisters) with John Cocke (his uncle) gathered to hear the last will and testament of Elizabeth. Elizabeth directed that all debts due from her son, Thomas, should be forgiven. All the rest of her tangible possessions were to be given to Elizabeth?s son, John. Elizabeth lived another three days.

      Thomas Cocke (son of William and Elizabeth) married and had a daughter, Eleanor, who was baptized in the Parish of Stottesdon.[iii][3] Thomas also had a son, Richard Cocke, who was baptized on December 13, 1597 in the Parish of Sidbury, which is just over one mile to the northeast of Pickthorn.[iv][4] On this cold winter day, the choice of the Parish of Sidbury was about 1/4 mile closer than the Parish of Stottesdon. It was this Richard Cocke of Pickthorn who would later travel to Virginia.

      Settlement in Jamestown

      Three ships carrying the first 105 settlers sailed from London in December of 1606. In May of 1607, they arrived at what would become Jamestown, Virginia. The first supply ship returned with 100 to 120 additional settlers in January of 1608 to find only 38 survivors of the original settlers. By the end of 1609, a total of between 500 to 735 people had come to Jamestown. In May of 1610, another ship arrived and found only 60 survivors. Ninety percent of the colonists had died during the first three years due to starvation, disease, and Indian attacks.

      In August of 1610, the Swan arrived at Jamestown from London. The Swan was about the seventeenth ship to bring settlers to Jamestown, Virginia. A young girl named Cecily was one of the passengers. She was about ten years old. When Cecily was about 16 years old, she married a man named Baley. They had a daughter named Temperance Baley near 1617. Cecily?s husband died within the next few years.

      Life in early Jamestown was harsh. As previously mentioned, many colonists died from starvation, disease, or Indian attacks. Any woman needed a husband to provide protection and food. Cecily married for a second time to Samuel Jordan. It was in 1620 that Samuel was recognized for 10 years and Cecily was recognized for nine years in Virginia. Cecily was about 20 years old. This would have been young in England, but was not young in Jamestown. Any person who had lived 10 years in Jamestown had survived through difficult trials. Both Samuel and Cecily were given the titles of ?Ancient Planters? and granted land. Samuel was granted 450 acres of land and Cecily was granted 100 acres of land.[v][5] This was just outside of Jamestown at the confluence of the James and Appotomattox Rivers. Samuel named his land ?Jordan?s Journey?.

      The document that granted land to Samuel and Cecily Jordan (in 1620) noted that it was adjacent to land owned by Temperance Baley (Cecily?s daughter) who would have been only 3 years old at the time. Temperance had inherited her land from her father. On March 22, 1622, the Pohatan Indians launched a massacre killing 347 of the settlers at and near Jamestown. One survivor rowed out to Jordan?s Journey providing a warning that the Indians were coming. This gave time to prepare and few lives were lost at Jordan?s Journey. It seems a horrible reality that if Cecily?s first husband had not died, it is likely that Cicely and Temperance would not have survived the Indian massacre.

      Temperance Baley married John Browne when she was about 13 years old. They had two children. John died after they had been married only two years.

      By 1632, Richard Cocke had come from Pickthorn, England to Virginia. He married John Browne?s widow, Temperance Baley, and provided 6,397 pounds of tobacco to pay for the debts of John Browne. Richard Cocke was extremely successful in Virginia. In 1636, Richard Cocke received 3000 acres of land for the transportation of 60 people to Virginia.[vi][6] Richard Cocke and Temperance had two children. Their first son, Thomas, was named after Richard?s father. Their second son was named Richard. Temperance died rather young.

      In 1639, Virginia was realizing that they needed to control the quality and quantity of tobacco that they were growing in order to keep prices up. The General Assembly mandated the destruction and burning of excess and low quality tobacco. No more than twelve hundred thousand pounds was to be grown for the year and for the next two years. Fourteen viewers were appointed for Henrico County. Richard Cocke and two others were appointed for Curles, Bremo, and Turkey Island.[vii][7]

      Richard Cocke later married Mary Aston. Richard and Mary had five children. Their first son, William, was named after Richard?s uncle and grandfather. Their second son, John, was named after Richard?s uncle. Their third son was named Richard. To differentiate the two sons named Richard, the son by Richard?s first wife, Temperance, was called Richard the Elder. The son by Richard?s second wife, Mary, was called Richard the Younger. Richard and Mary had a third child, Elizabeth, named after Richard?s grandmother. Richard and Mary also had a fifth child, Edward who was born shortly after Richard?s death.

      Over the years, Richard Cocke continued to build his plantations. He owned three plantations named Curles, Bremo, and Malvern Hills. These totaled over 7,000 acres of land. These plantations that Richard Cocke had built would remain in the family for generations.

      When Richard Cocke wrote his last will and testament in 1665, he asked to be buried in his orchard near his first wife (Temperance). Richard was 68 years old when he was buried at Bremo, but only his two oldest sons had reached the age of majority. Richard asked his oldest son, Thomas, to operate his mill to provide for the rest of the children until they should come of age.
