THE TAYLOR FAMILY OF NORTHUMBERLAND AND LANCASTER COUNTIES, VIRGINIA.(Contributed by Mrs. L. C. Anderson, Bainbridge, Ohio)
The name Taylor appears often in the early records of Northumberland andLancaster Counties, Virginia.
The name is variously spelled: Taylor, Taler, Tayler, Tayleur; and in thecase of John Tayler of Wicomico, and later of his sons of Wicomico Parishit is spelled Taylor, Taylour, and Tailler.
Contemporary with John Taylor Wicomico, were several other Taylorfamilies living in Northumberland and Lancaster counties. Seemingly norelationship existed between any of these families.
As Rappahannock county, including Richmond county, also Westmorelandcounty and Middlesex county were cut off from Northumberland andLancaster counties, we know that some of the Taylors mentioned in earlyrecords were afterward domiciled in these adjoining counties.
In Northumberland county, 1665, John Taylor makes a gift to son William.O. B. 1658-1666, p. 67.
The records of this county also show that one John Taylor is deceased1667. Also, William Taylor and wife Ann deed land on Cone River, 1670.
The estate of William Taylor of St. Stephens' Parish is settled 1709. InSt. Stephens' Register is found the following:
*Sarah, dau. of William Tayler, b. Nov. 26, 1668.
Pheby, dau. of William Tayler, b. May 18, 1691.
William, son of William Tayler, b. Feb. 23, 1693.
The Order Book shows he left orphans Pheby, William, Mary, Elizabeth andJohn; and that John Waters was grandfather of the orphans of William andMary Taylor, 1709.
William Telour (spelled Taylor on margin) makes a will in Northumberlandcounty, 1746. Wife only is mentioned.
In Lancaster county, Oct. 2, 1654, the estate of John Taylor is settled.
In same year, Elizabeth Horton, wife of Tobias Horton, and relict of JohnTaylor deceased, asks for her dower in her deceased husband's estate.
Tobias Horton, in will, Lancaster county, names son Tobias, dau. Rebecca,son-in-law Richard Taylor; wife Elizabeth. Fortunatus Snydor witnessesthis will.
Records further show that the last named John Taylor left a daughter wholater married Simon Sallard, and a son Richard who died young.
As stated previously there seems to be no connection whatever betweenthis John Taylor and the others Taylors of Lancaster county.
John Taylor, Taylour, Tailler of Wicomico left many descendants.
Wicomico comprised part of Northumberland and part of Lancaster counties,lying on the border of each.
Here, John Taylor owned large tracts of land, bordering on the streamsWicomico , and Corotoman, and the inlets of the Bay. It is not far frompresent church of Wicomico, and, to this day, some of this land is in thepossession of his descendants.
Not much is known of John Taylour of Wicomico. Fire has destroyed many ofthe early records of Northumberland county. The book containing his willis also missing.
That he was in Virginia at an early date is shown by the land grants,deeds and the depositions of his sons.
Continued on son John's notes.
