Huddleston Family

"HUDDLESTON HALL"

We will begin with the Manor of old time Huddleston or Huderston. It is in the parish of Sherburn and about one and a half miles southwest from that place and stands in a most secluded valley. Here at the Doomsday Survey dwelt one Hunchel, or Huder; a Saxon, from whence it has been said the place received its name; but Huder, or "Huddel" in old English meant a heap, an abundant accumulation of anything, and it is quite likely that the place derived its name like that of others about, and the Doomsday dwellers there derived their cognomens from the fact of stone being so plentiful, and in the early days so easily got at, and of such quality, that the quarry once opened has been delved into fame; is the source of many an imposing tower and pile throughout the country of broad acres and farther afield as well. In the wood adjoining, called Huddleston Old Wood, are the remains of a double trench and on the moor in the direction of Newthorpe are the traces of similar entrenchments evidently salient points in the vest system of entrenchment’s beginning at Burwick and stretching hither, more or less, a distance of eight miles, guarding in pre Norman times the only approach north between Ouce and the Aire valleys. The Hunchills are supposed to have been settled here generations previous to the conquest, but they fled before the scourge and devastation of the conquorer, returning to their old homes sometime after this family soon rose to position and dignity. About the year 1110, one Nigel de Huddleston presented lands to the Monastery of Selby and being weary of the sinful ways of this wicked word entered that establishment as a monk. Again in 1296 one Sir Richard de Huddleston by license from Dean Sewell de Boville had leave to attach a chapel to his manor house "To hear divine servious this year in my chapel kept in my court of Huddleston, or Hoddleston, yet so that on chief feast days I may repair to the mother church Sherburn." Richard, the last of the male line to dwell in the hall died here early in the 14th century. The estate then went by marriage to John de Melsa. A Sir John Huddleston, however, established the old name in Cumberland where it lasted until 1774. When his estate passed by marriage of his daughter Elizabeth to Sir Hadworth Williams, who in turn sold it to the Lowthers. This family appears to have been ever brave soldiers on the battlefield. A Sir Richard Huddleston was made Knight Bannerette at the hands of Henry the V on the field of Agincourt; John de Odleston was with Edward the First at the siege of Carrellaverock. One Ferdinand Huddleston was a staunch cavalier, who took to wife Jane, daughter of Sir Ralph Gray of Clillingham, who bore him nine sons, all of whom became officers and fought in the cause of King Charles. William the eldest was made Knight Bannerette by Charles for his gallant effort in recapturing the Royal standard at the battle of Edgehill. His brother Richard Huddleston, a Lieutenant Colonel, was at York during the sorties and the repulse of the Roundheads Sunday, June 17, 1764. His body was buried in the Ministry the day following. The old Hall has a wonderful chain of unbroken history stretching over a thousand years, before, which is speculative. It is now a farmhouse and, although much altered, retains features picturesque and quaint. The shell of the old chapel built in the 13th century is still remaining but not used for religious purposes. Huddleston Manor is also interesting by reason of its great limestone quarry, famed for building purposes, the best and most durable in Yarkshire, whence the surrounding churches and manor house. Thorsbay says "The quarry at Huddleston is also a delicate stone and has this peculiarity in it, that when the stone is when newly dug out so soft it may be cut or wrought with a knife, the color is also pure white; so that not only chimney pieces, but monuments in churches are made, it hardens by exposure to the sir; it little inferior to marble." The antiguarries description is to the point. Huddleston quarries are (Celtic ceraig rock) easily detected by their hardness and silvery whiteness. Tradition reports that Bishop Dyke, reaching from Sherburn to Caiwood, was made cheaper and wider and its course cut straight by the Archbishops, so that the stone from this quarry might be located on rafts and floated down on rafts to Caiwood and from thence by boat to York. In 1358, the Dean and Chapter York took Huddleston Delph on a lease for a period of 80 years and afterward for a period of 19 years. This quarry is said to have been known and used by the Romans one mile southwest of this place by the path ledding over the old mill waste (of old a wild forest region) in liewthorp Norse – the new settlement, It lies between Millford and Micklefield about a mile from the letter. Here while removing surface bearings in 1881 trenches running east and west, north and south end U shaped, about six feet deep were discovered, the outer bolt of earthwork having been thrown around the crest of the hill. These trenches were probably a part of some system as those already mentioned as existing in the Huddleston Old Woods beyond. Near the trench was found the upper half of a hand mill stone. Newthorp standing on the edge of the Vale is a most primitive spot. From hence we pass Stockton, one and a half miles away. This land as we go gradually changing from limestone to sandstone is gently, undulating, and though all in enclosed, some part of the surface still bears signs of its primitive wilderness. (From the Kingdom of Elmst and the Ainstay of York by Boggs) HUDDLESTON CASTLES IN ENGLAND Millom Castles, John Hutton. Millom Castle is situated about two miles from the extreme southern point of Cumberland. It forms a link in the line of Tower houses and castles extend along the Cumberland and Furnese coasts. We have Worthington, Muncaster, Irton, Millom, Tiel, Gleaston and Dalton Castles; Wrayholme and Dallom and Hagelback and Arnside Towers. Sizbergh and Dallam. At first sight such a series looks almost like castles defenses, but the six more important dates from the 14th century and were built soon after Bruce’s raid through Copeland and Furness in 1329. King Edward first gave license to Sir John Huddleston to build Millom Castle, which stood until the late civil wars demolished it. It was being restored by Ferdinand Huddleston in 1671, who was then the owner. A complete Huddleston pedigree is a very big business and the family awaits its historian. The cescent of the house of Huddleston of Millom begins with two Johns, the first of whom was the husband of Joan de Millom, who appears as a widow in 1252. The second also an important man proved this title to his estate and priveliges in 1292 and figured at the battle of Falkirk in 1298 and the siege of Caerlaverock Castle in 1300. His coat of arms are given as "Rouge prettie de argent". He was styled Baron in 1299 and also a signatory letter to Boniface the VIII in 1301. This was written on parchment to the Pope of Rome saying the Roman Catholics were to get out of England "By order of the Royal British Army" and was signed to which he added "Sir Huddleston Knight" and added his coat of Arms. This is said to be the first time the Huddleston Coat of Arms was used in an official capacity. There is marble sarcophagus of Sir John and Lady Huddleston in Millom Castle Church. This castle was built by Godard de Boyville, who first owned Manor of Millom. Its posterity, Arthur, surnamed de Milloms, Henry, William and Adam successfully enjoyed it after him, but the last leaving only one daughter named Joan, who was in the reign of King Henry III married to John Huddleston. It was then transformed to that family, in which it has continued to the present time.

Widow of Abraham Huddleston) Henry Huddleston Sr., was born in England in 1660, died 1706. (Phila. Will book C p3w). He was our first American ancestor. He married Elizabeth Cooper in 1701. She was the daughter of William Cooper, a Quaker from Low Clinton. Snapt Yorkshire, England. The Cooper family lived over in what is now York County Pennsylvania, but William nearly got turned out of Quaker meeting for allowing his daughter to marry an outsider, a man who did not belong to the Quaker Church. But Henry made up for it. He united with the Quaker Church, built the Middleston Meeting house on the corner of his property. It is about a block from the stone house he built just before his death. He also established a creamery by that wonderous spring; which was near his home. All signs of his log house and that creamery have vanished from the earth ages ago.. Though the creamery was still doing business when his son William was a tanner and a shoemaker. For son William a stone house was built by the creamery. Now to go back to the Henry Huddleston SR. As we have said in a previous page, Henry married Elizabeth Cooper in 1701, and is this union born three children; William, Elizabeth and Henry. William was born 1702, Elizabeth in 1704 and Henry Jr. born 1706. He married Mary Wildkinson in 1733. They had four sons and three daughters; Daniel, William, Abraham and Nathan, Hulda, Rachel and Martha. Hulda married a Mr. Montgomery. Children of Hulda Montgomery; Mary, Sarah, Margaret and Elizaeth. John married Margaret ____. I don’t know who. Mary married John P Cosby or Cospey. Patsy married Alexander Dorsey. Elizabeth married Arron McAnnulty. George Huddleston, Congressman, says it is not know which are Montgomery or which Ray. She having married a Mr. Ray after her first husband died. She appears to have moved with her brother to Bedford and there to have married her second husband John Ray and thence to the Chester District of south Carolina Her children signed a deed to Bucks land in 1815, reciting that they lived in Chester District. Nothing more is known of them. Hulda Montgomery died in North Carolina 1815. Rachel, Daniel Huddleston’s sister, married George Clymer. Martha married a Mr. Fox. Nathan was in Bucks County Militia 1755-80. He signed a deed to Bucks land in 1815, reciting that he then lived in Hampshire Co., Va (W.Va. now). The first available census of Hampshire 1820 shows Henry about 45, with family composed of wife, five other females and four males. Whether he was a son of Nathan is not known and his descendants are untraced. Daniel and William moved to Bedford County, Virginia about 1770 and thence with their children some of whom were adults into the Kanawha Valley about 1790. (See chapter on the Huddlestons of Kanawha Valley). Rachel joined with Daniel in deed to Bucks land in 1766. Abraham moved to Bedford County, Va. About 1775. Nathan Huddleston, Daniel’s brother moved to Fayette County, W.Va. and patented 200 acres of land on Laurel Creek near Kanawha Falls, W.Va., in 1801. He died about 1821. See will Book 1, page 10, May 14, 1921. Appraisment of the estate of Nathan Huddleston, widow Margaret Huddleston, administratrix. Her name was Girard. Record of Daniel Huddleston Daniel Huddleston, son of Henry Huddleston (Jr.) was born in Buck County, Pa. In 1735, died July 27, 1817; married Rachel Martin, who was born in February 11, 1754 and died February 11, 1831, at what is now Alloy Fayette County W.Va. Rachel was a daughter of John Martin or Revolutionary fame. He served in the Revolutionary War. Two or three Martin names are on the battle monument in Point Pleasant. They were brother of Rachel Martin Huddleston. Of the exact date of Daniel Huddleston coming to West Virginia,, I am not sure, but it was between 1785-1790. He patented 300 acres of land on the Great Kanawha in 1791. I think there were a few Indians still roving up and down the Kanawha Valley when he came to this state. He first settled near the mouth of Little Loop Creek, now Deepwater. Daniel built his home a short distance up the creek to get off the Indian trial and scalped trees around his farm and entered it. Perhaps everyone doesn’t know what scalping the tree means, but one simply uses as ax or hatchet and hacks the bark off of the tree into the wood and it never heals over with bark anymore, so that it is a permanent land mark as long as the tree lives. I wonder what dear old Great Grandfather Daniel would think could he come back and see Loop Creek as it is now after one hundred and fifty three years have elapsed. Many changes have taken place since he lived there. The great Norfolk and Western RR made up the creek, perhaps it runs over the same spot where Daniel built his home about 1785 or 86. The N&W RR comes through a small tunnel where it crossed over the C&O RR on a long bridge across the Kanawha River and connected with the Ohio Central RR near the end of the bridge. Many things have taken place around and in the vicinity of the town of Deepwater since then. As we have said Daniel Huddleston married Rachel Martin and a s a result of this union was born five sons and two duaghters; Thomas, John Paddy, Samuel, Nathan, Job, Mary and Rachel. Record of John P and Miriam Huddleston John Paddy Huddleston was born in Bedford, Va., October 28 1771 and died November 9, 1862. He married Miriam Jarrett about 17908 or 1799. She was born February 11, 1781 and died in 1864 0r 1865. She died at Alloy. Both of them, their little daughter Susan and old Uncle Jack, the colored man, are buried up on the cliff above the old home place.

He married Nancy Blake March 16, 1829. Nancy was born in 1805. To this union was born two sons and one daughter; Jackson, James and Miriam, called "Tiny". She died about four years old. Her play house was still outside in the Chimney Corner and all of her play things still in it.. When I saw it many years after she died. Dear old Aunt Nancy, I always loved her. When I was a girl I loved to visit her, we did not live far so I saw her frequently. She would always insist on me eating something that she had made recently especially her good pickles and they were good too. She was a fine cook in that day. We had to pass her home on our way to Sunday School and preaching, all conducted in the little red school house up on the bank in the mouth of the little hollow that comes down near the end of the N&W or the Virginia RR which crosses the Kanawha River at Deepwater. The Church at Alloy was not built then. That was between 1868 and on up to 1874. A long time ago. The school house was built a mile above our home. The Midland Trail was not made then. The Kanawha & Michigan (the Ohio Central) it is now called, had not been built, but the Chesapeake and Ohio was about finished on the opposite side of the river, by 1873. I remember the first train went through to Clifton Forge. R. D. Clark, my husband and I lived at Coalburg at that time, Adam Schleagle and Daniel Neal Hale, were passengers on the first train through to Clifton Forge. There were no automobiles, no school busses in that day to carry the pupils to and from school; no nice hard surface roads for us to walk on but when it was rainy or snowy weather we had to wade through the mud or snow to and from school. Jackson Huddleston, eldest son of Job and Nancy Huddleston was born about 1830. He married Ellen Atkinson in 1869, and to this union was born four sons and two daughters; Thomas Teaford, Walter Lee, Junius Barger, John Strawther, Ola and Blanche.

They had no children. He died October 11, 1929, at his home, 1025 10th St., Huntington, W. Va. Julia is living in California at this date, 1938. Walter L. Huddleston, was born in 1867. He married Miss Auninta Carroll, who was the daughter of Rev. James Carroll. They were married about 1890 or 1891. He met a horrible death on Christmas Day. He boarded a passenger train No. 14 at the depot here to ride to upper Hinton , (Avis now) and just this side of the crossing he jumped off. His clothes became entangled in the step railing and he was thrown under the train. One arm and both legs were badly mangled and he received a bad cut on his forehead. He was removed to the hospital room in the YMCA where he remained in an unconcious condition until 8:00 PM when he died. He left a mother, wife, three brothers and two sister. Tom, Barger, John, Ola and Blanche of Carbon. The remains were taken to Mount Carbon on train35 for burial December 27, 1897. He was buried in the Huddleston Cemetery in Carbon.

Emma Huddleston was born March 23, 1867. She married Robert Watson. I do not know the date of the marriage nor how many children. She died 1903, aged 36 years and 7 months and 8 days. Robert Huddleston was born about 1868. He married Hattie Garten, date unknown. She was a daughter of Ed and Abbie Garten. The had three children; Ray, Theresa and Catherine. Ray died 10 February 191. He is buried in the new addition on Hill Top Cemetery, Hinton, WV. Theresa m Guy Edward McMillion, Sat Apr. 18, 1925, in Huntington, WV. Catherine at home. Billie died when a small child. (Note: Robert Watson married Emma after Mattie died-from Lawrence Huddleston) Mattie Huddleston was born in 1877. She married Robert Watson. I do not know the date of Marriage, but they had ond daughter Lula. Mattie died Aug. 5, 1895, aged 18 years. Record of George Paddy Huddleston’s Family George P. Huddleston was born April 29, 1802. He married Mary Huddleston, as a first wife. They were married about 1828. She was a daughter of John Boomer Huddleston. Mary died April 27, 1820 in the 18th year of her life. Willie was born March 17, 18230, died November 2, 1836, aged 5years 8 months and 5 days. George P Huddleston’s second wife was Nancy Windsor. They married August 12, 1830. She was born September 27, 1811 and died May 26, 1834. They had one son named Thomas Huddleston. Lt. Thomas Huddleston, son of George P. and Nancy Windsor was born 1831 or 1832. He was the first West Virginia soldier to loose his life in the lost cause. He being killed on Scarry Bridge by one of his men by mistake. He sleeps under the Confederate Monument in Spring Hill Cemetery in Huntington, W. Va. (Note: He has a marker in the Huddleston Cemetery at Alloy, WV-from Janet Martin 1982). The little two story house that was built on the hill (it fronts the Midland Trail. We called it the yellow house.), was built by Thomas. It was said and he roomed and entertained his gentlemen company in there. It is a log house, weather boarded and ceiled. The house is still standing and is in good condition considering its age. I am not sure, but I think John Boomer Huddleston built that house and that he and his family lived there. There are several very old and large locust trees in the front yard. Perhaps John Boomer planted them. I think he owned the land whereon the town of Boomer is now. I think where George P Huddleston lived at one time was John Boomer’s property. George P Huddleston married as his first wife John B Huddleston’s daughters Mary in 1828. I am not certain, but I think John B Huddleston sold his farm to some son in law, G. P. Huddleston and he and his family went west. However, the party he sold it to, I suppose, bought it on credit system and probably made a few payments on it, but never paid the balance on it, so after a time he came back to Boomer to see if he could collect the balance due on his farm. I never learned whether he was successful or not. It was not Boomer then, but was later named in honor of him. I suppose he lived with son in law and died there. I regret I do not know the date of his death. He was buried in the George P. Huddleston place on the hill a short distance above the house. That is why I think he owned that farm at that time, for it was a custom in those days mostly to burry in ones own property. But now he lies in the corner of someones yard without so much as a tombstone, or a little fence around his grave to show where he lies. I have often wondered why George p. Huddleston never put a tombstone above his grave. He still lies there now, in the Boomer Coal Company’s property. The Boomer Coal Company’s Railroad running up the creek to the coal mines is between the Thomas Huddleston and George P. Huddleston’s house. They at that time were in the same lot or lawn. There was a wonderful spring of clear cold water down across the road, several large trees grew on the bank over the spring making a dense shade over the spring. But when the Midland Trial was made through the Valley they made a fill in front of the house causing the road to be raised much higher that the G.P Huddleston house. The trees were out down and the spring covered over with dirt and no sign of a spring there now. Before the Midland Trail was made the yard was about four or five feet higher than the County Road. A retaining wall was built the full length of the yard out to the creek and the County road at that time ran along by the side of the wall and it was a beautiful home place. George P. Huddleston’s third wife was Nancy Harvey (a sister of Morris Harvey). They were married May 6, 1835. Three daughters were born to them; Celia, Octavia and Minnie. Celia Huddleson was born about 1836 or 1837. She married Warren Hibbard about 1863. I do not know how many children they had, if any. They went to Pasadena, California about 1868 or 1869. She died in Pasadena in 1918. Octavia Huddleston, I think was born in 1843 or 1844. She married Dr, Junius Barger about 1865. They had two daughters and one son. The boy deceased. The daughter; Blanche and Nellie Barger. Dr. Barger died and later she married Moses Trimble. He was a brother of Aarron Trimble who married Nannie Levi in Kanawha County many years ago. I think she and her husband died in Fayetteville, W. Va. Blanche Barger was born in 1877. She married Judge Alfred Davis Preston about 1900.
