Descendants & Notes for James Withers

 

1. JAMES12 WITHERS (WILLIAM11, JOHN10, WILLIAM9, WILLIAM8 WYTHER, ROGER7, THOMAS6, THOMAS5, WILLIAM4, THOMAS3, REGINALD2, ROBERT1) was born 1680 in LANCASTER CO. ENG., and died 06 Jun 1746 in STAFFORD CO,VA. He married ELIZABETH KEENE in STAFFORD CO VA, daughter of MATTHEW KEENE and BRIDGET. She was born Abt. 1682 in VA, and died 26 Jul 1769 in VA.

Notes for JAMES WITHERS:

 

IN HIS WILL, HIS HOME CALLED "OLD MANOR PLANTATION" CAME DOWN TO HIS GRANDSON, BENJAMIN, SON OF JOHN, AS THIS FAMILY REMAINED FOR THE LONGEST TIME IN STAFFORD COUNTY ON THE OLD HOME PLACE. THIS LAND WAS ON A SMALL CREEK FALLING INTO POTOMAC CREEK. IN 1939, THE PLACE WAS OWNED BY CHARLES CHESLEY. AN OLD CEMETERY KNOWN AS THE WITHERS CEMETERY IS ON THIS FARM ON THE NORTH SIDE POTOMAC CREEK IN STAFFORD COUNTY. MR. CHESTLEY SAID THERE USED TO BE MANY STONES IN THIS FAMILY BURIAL GROUND, BUT IN LATER YEARS THESE DISAPPEARED. THERE IS NOW STANDING IN 1939 ONE STONE WITH THE NAME OF DILLARD, DATED 1820, AND AN OLD WITHERS STONE ERECTED TO THE MEMORY OF MILDRED WITHERS, BORN JANUARY 19, 1808, AND DIED MARCH 18, 1809. THE CHILD WAS THE NIECE OF BENJAMIN AND DAUGHTER OF GEORGE.

JAMES ALSO OWNED MUCH LAND IN FAUQUIER COUNTY, VA, ON LICKING RUN AND ON TIN POT RUN AND ONE HALF OF THE ORIGINAL TRACT OF 2900 ACRES KNOWN AS THE NORTH WALES TRACT. HE OWNED TWO MILES, ONE OF WHICH WAS ON POTOMAC RUN. HE LEFT MUCH LAND TO HIS SONS. TIN POT CREEK FELL TO HIS YOUNGEST SON KEENE, WHOSE FAMILY BECAME KNOWN AS THE TIN POT WITHERS FAMILY, TO DISTINGUISH THEM FROM THE THOMAS WITHERS FAMILY , WHO INHERITED THE LICKING RUN TRACT CALLED GREEN MEADOWS. THE HALF OF THE NORTH WALES TRACT WAS DIVIDED AMONG SEVERAL OF HIS CHILDREN. HIS SONS HELD THESE GIFTS FROM THEIR FATHER AND MADE THEIR HOMES, RAISED THEIR FAMILIES, AND BECAME BUILDERS OF THE BEAUTIFUL COUNTY FAUQUIER, NOTED FOR ITS FINE FAMILIES AND FOR THEIR INTEREST IN HORSES.
