The Mayburys of Surry County, Virginia

Francis Maybury and Elizabeth Gilliam
The first Maybury family in America


Francis Maybury was born about 1650-1660, probably in England. We do not know exactly when he arrived in Virginia or the name of the ship that brought him. All we know is that Francis was in Virginia at least by October 1, 1679 when, "John Pleasants and Jno. Haddellsey were granted 548 acres of land on the maine brooke of 4 Mile Creek, north of the James River in Henrico County for transporting 11 persons into the colony". One of the 11 persons (headrights) named in the grant was Fra. Mawbury (Maybury).

Because the system of "headright" grants was widely abused and because the names of persons coming into the Colony were often bought and sold for the purpose of obtaining land, we cannot presume that Francis Maybury actually came in 1679 or even that his transportation was paid by someone other than himself. We simply know that he was in Virginia at least by October 1, 1679. It is possible and even likely that he had come to the Colony months or even years earlier. Francis Maybury's name has not been found on any existing passenger list and we thus have no information about the port from which he sailed.

In spite of all the information we have disovered about Francis Maybury and Elizabeth Gilliam, there is much that we do not know:
  • We assume he was born in England but don't know where.
  • We still have not found the names of his parents.
  • We do not know how old he was when he came to America or why he came.
  • We know nothing of his life between his arrival in Virginia and his marriage in 1685.
Numerous family records can be found on the internet which state that Francis Maybury was born in 1647 in Longnor, Shropshire and that he was the son of Richard and Elizabeth Maybury. However, this is not true. The error began several years ago when a Mabry descendant searched the International Genealogical Index and found a record which said that a son, Francis, was baptized to Richard and Elizabeth Maybery of Longnor on 17 May 1677. Assuming this to be true, the information was submitted it to the "World Family Tree" project where it was published. Since then others have seen that information and published it elsewhere on the internet without bothering to check the original sources.

While some on-line versions of the Internatinal Genealogical Index say the Francis Maybury born in Longnor in 1647 was a son, the printed transcript of the 1992 IGI, says that the child was a daughter. Thus, in January 2005 we contacted the Shropshire Records Office and asked them to examine the original parish register. The following is their response:

"...although the name is spelled Francis the entry in the register reads Francis daughter of Richard and Elizabeth Maybery was baptized. The female name Frances was often spelled Francis at this time."

Thus we can say with certainty that Francis Maybury who came to Virginia and married Elizabeth Gilliam was NOT the son of Richard and Elizabeth Maybury of Shropshire.

Meanwhile in early 2003 we began the Maybury DNA Project using a test which looks at a unique "family code" passed on from father to son over many generations. The code is passed on unchanged except for rare "one step mutations" which are easily identifiable. Our study has already proved that Francis Maybury and several other later emigrants from England and Ireland share a common ancestor. This discovery is all the more interesting because some of the other emigrants came from Maybury lines that can be traced back to three contiguous counties in England's west midlands.

Elizabeth Gilliam was born in Virginia about 1654, the daughter of John Gilliam and Margery _____. Based on the work of early Mabry researchers before about 1950, it was long assumed that John Gilliam's wife was Margery Henshaw, daughter of Thomas Henshaw who was thought to have lived "on Otterdam" in Surry County. However, later research has shown that this Thomas Henshaw lived on a different Otterdam Creek, not in Surry County, but in Lancaster County and was not the father of Margery who married John Gilliam. Our research has yet to find Margery's parents.

Elizabeth's first husband was a Mr. West by whom she had two sons: Francis and John West. Her second marriage was to William Bevin by whom she had three more children: William, Matthew and Elizabeth Bevin. William Bevin wrote his will on 11 May 1684. A few months later, Elizabeth, a widow with five children, married Francis Maybury.

Elizabeth and Francis Maybury had seven more children:

  • Ann Maybury - married 1st David Peebles; married 2nd Abraham Burton
  • Mary Maybury - married George Fox
  • Francis Maybury, Jr. - married Eleanor Wyche
  • George Maybury - married 1st Unknown; married 2nd Sarah Williamson; married 3rd Martha Bradley.
  • Charles Maybury - married Rebecca Lofting
  • Judith Maybury - unmarried in 1713; married Robert Warren
  • Hinchia Maybury - married 1st Frances Parham married 2nd Anne Jackson; married 3rd Anne Courtney (nee Clack).

The Mayburys lived for several years on Swift Creek in Henrico County, just a few miles south of modern Richmond. Later they lived briefly in Charles City County, before moving to Surry County about 1701. Francis Maybury wrote his will on 22 March 1711/12 in Surry County. That he probably died a few weeks later is shown by the fact that his widow, Elizabeth, presented his estate for probate in Surry County Court on June 12 of the same year. One year later, on June 6, 1713, Elizabeth Maybury wrote her own will, which was offered for probate on 15 February 1715/16 by her son, Charles Maybury.

Land, court and other records show that when the Mayburys moved to Surry County about 1701, the settled along Jones Hole Swamp. There they cleared much of the land in order to plant tobacco. This picture taken by Maybury descendant, Bill Hicklin, shows what the area looks 300 years later (February 2001). It is now in Sussex County very near the line with modern Prince George County.

      2. Dudley4 Peebles b 1771 or earlier; d ca 1790

  2. Mary2 Maybury b ca 1688; That Mary married a George Fox is shown by her statement in Surry County Court on 8 Feb 1713 in which, "Mary Fox, relict of George Fox, relinquishes her right of administration of the estate of George Fox to Francis Mayberry, Jr. Francis Mayberry and next of kin (sic) swears that George Fox died intestate and is confirmed as administrator." Later, Francis Maybury, Jr., Mary's brother, was ordered to present an inventory and appraisal for George Fox. James Sammon, Robert Hawthorn and John Hawthorn appointed as appraisers. (Surry County, Va. Orders: Vol 2). An audit of the account of George Fox's estate was filed with the Surry court on 19 Aug 1719. We have not located further records of this administration.

    Some have suggested a list of seven children based on the will of a Mary Fox, written in October 1795 and recorded (apparently in Mecklenburg County, Virginia) on 9 November 1795. However, this is very doubtful as our Mary Maybury, who married George Fox, would have been about 107 years of age in 1795 and likely would have remarried soon after the death of George Fox. Therefore, until additional records can be found we can only say that the children, if any, of Mary Maybury and George Fox are unknown.

The marriage record of Frances Mabry and William Holt is registered in both Greensville and Brunswick Counties. Frances is listed by some researchers as a daughter of Joshua3 and by others as a daughter of Joel3. Joshua’s will (1790) names a daughter Frances Lightfoot. And Joel’s will (1784) names a daughter Frances Mabry. Clearly both had daughters named Frances. The question is: did Joshua’s daughter marry a Lightfoot and Joel’s daughter marry William Holt --- or did Joel’s daughter marry William Holt in 1786 and then a Mr. Lightfoot sometime before November 1790?)

    Later Generations

    The grandchildren and great-grandchildren of Francis and Elizabeth Maybury soon migrated south and west into the Carolinas, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Kentucky, and Tennessee. More information about these later generations can be found in my books:
