The Mitchell River in Surry County, North Carolina

The above video provides a look at the Mitchell River in Surry County, North Carolina. An error appeared in a very recent post. That post said that Elder Gideon Potter was baptized in the Mitchell River, but according to his testimony, it was actually his mother, Martha Phipps, who married Stephen Potter, who was baptized in that river. According to Gideon Potter, who was born in 1798,

My mother’s name was Martha Phipps, and was of Welsh descent. She joined the Baptist [sic] when I was about four years old, and was baptized by Elder Abraham Mitchell in Mitchell’s river, North Carolina.

George Washington Paschal, in History of North Carolina Baptists, Vol. 2 (1955) refers to the Mitchell’s River church which was one of the Baptist churches involved in the establishment of the Yadkin Association in 1790. Then in 1822, the Mitchell’s River church became a part of the Brier Creek Association in a meeting in which the delegates included Gideon Potter and Stephen Potter, presumably the one who was Gideon’s father. William T. Stott, in Indiana Baptist History, 1798-1908 (1908), refers to Gideon Potter as an ordained minister attending a meeting in Daviess County, Indiana in 1844.

The Mitchell River, which flows into the Yadkin River, was mentioned in the previous post in connection with an 1818 North Carolina land grant to Benjamin Potter. That grant was for 100 acres in Surry County “On the big branch Waters of Mitchell [or Mitchells?] River.” This was adjacent to land owned by Stephen Potter and to land owned by James Phips.

That James Phips was presumably the same one who was the subject of the post before that one, which includes a transcription of an 1812 Surry County deed in which James Phipps (as spelled this time) bought 100 acres “on both sides of Christians Creek” in Surry County. That deed was witnessed by Lewis Phipps, as well as John and James Witcher. Christian Creek appears on maps south of Lowgap in Surry County, and more or less southeast of the Blue Ridge Parkway, not far from the Mitchell River.

All of this gets a bit complex, since so many documents and so many interrelated people are involved, but the interrelationships have been discussed at length in a number of past posts. The Potters and Witchers and a branch of the Phips or Phipps family were interrelated, with what appear to be very clear ties to John Fips/Phips who died about 1769 in Charlotte County, Virginia, his daughter Elizabeth who married Ephraim Witcher and who lived in Surry County, North Carolina (with their son Taliaferro moving into Ashe County), the Martha Phipps who married Stephen Potter, and members of the Roy family.

Also thrown into the mix appears to be Littleberry (“Berry”) Phipps, who had a son named John Witcher Phipps and who moved to Lawrence County, Indiana, as did Isaiah Phips or Phipps, son of Samuel Phips of Ashe County, North Carolina. Members of the Potter and Roy families moved to Lawrence County, Indiana, as did also a Lewis Phipps, but apparently not the one who witnessed the 1812 Surry County, North Carolina deed, because the former Lewis would evidently have been living in Georgia at the time. Other children of Samuel Phips of Ashe County, North Carolina moved to Owen County, Indiana, with Samuel’s grandson John of Owen County remarking in the vintage book Banditti of the Prairie that he had relatives in Spice Valley (Lawrence County).

Elder Gideon Potter lived in Lawrence County, Indiana, but died in Owen County. A picture of his broken tombstone in Owen County, Indiana appears in Find A Grave and reads as follows:

ELDER G. POTTER
BORN
July 4, 1798.
DIED
Mar. 4, 1895.

The identity of the James Phips or Phipps in the grant and deed discussed would appear to likely be the one who was born about 1790 in North Carolina and who moved to Georgia. He had moved to Madison County, Georgia by 1840, and Madison County is adjacent to Elbert County. The Lewis Phipps who moved to Elbert County, Georgia had moved there by 1799, where he was associated with Ambrose Witcher, but since he appears to have stayed in Georgia, this appears to have been a different Lewis Phipps from the one who witnessed the 1812 deed in Surry County, North Carolina. Evidently they were still related, however.

It may take a while to sort out all these individuals and relationships. What seems odd, however, is that these people were primarily if not entirely ignored during all the genealogical concern about the origins of the Phips/Phipps families of the Ashe County, North Carolina and Grayson County, Virginia area in the 1980s and since.

A few of the many sources which could be cited:

Advertisements

William Fyappes of Lichfield, Staffordshire, 1571

We’ve seen some interesting variant spellings of “Phipps” in early records. One of the most creative is William “Fyappes” in a 1571 will or administration document from Lichfield, Staffordshire, England. The same name appears as “Phyppes” in the estate inventory.

The name appears in an index volume which indexes the volume of Wills and Administrations which covers 1562-1624, from Lichfield. The actual record appears on p. 155 of that original volume. This is indexed in Phillimore, Calendars of Wills & Administrations in the Consistory Court of the Bishop of Lichfield and Coventry, 1516 to 1652, London: British Record Society, 1892, p. 207.

Lichfield, by the way, is about 41 miles southwest of Nottingham. Berkshire heraldic visitation sources appear to indicate that the father of Francis Phipps of Reading, Berkshire, who we’ve referred to on numerous occasions and who was born about 1610, was a George Phipps of the Nottingham area. George’s father was supposed to have been a Robert Phipps of Nottingham.

George Reeves, Husband of Anne Phipps

Regarding the George Reeves who married Ann, Anne, or Anna Phipps, daughter of Francis Phipps of Reading, Berkshire, England, and who moved to Virginia, it should be helpful to note that there appear to have been at least TWO men named George Reeves who came from England to Virginia, if all the information claimed in sources is correct.

One of these men named George Reeves was living in London when he married Anne Phipps, daughter of Francis Phipps, in 1675. He later moved to Virginia, which is where he supposedly died. The other George Reeves had previously been living in Virginia, but was now in England when he wrote his will in the same year, 1675. Whether these two individuals were related is unclear.

As noted in various earlier posts, an abundance of circumstantial evidence appears to probably link another George Reeves, the much later one who was the father in law of Samuel Phips or Phipps of Wilkes and later Ashe County, North Carolina, with the earlier George Reeves who married Anne Phipps. Interestingly, circumstantial evidence also appears to link Samuel Phips to the much earlier Francis Phipps of Reading, who was Anne’s father.

GEORGE REEVES NUMBER 1

The Virginia Magazine of History and Biography, Vol. 11, July 1903, pp. 68-79, includes an installment of an ongoing series titled “Virginia Gleanings in England” by Withinton. This includes information on pp. 78-79 about one of these individuals named George Reeves. That article includes an abstract of the will of George Reeve, also Reeves. His will was dated 1 November 1675 and was proved 26 April 1689; in other words he had died by this time. His will referred to him as “of the Island of Virginia, Merchant, now residing in England.” This would, of course, indicate that he had lived in Virginia prior to 1 November 1675.

GEORGE REEVES NUMBER 2

The other George Reeves is the subject of a marriage record abstracted in Chester and Armytage, Allegations for Marriage Licences Issued from the Faculty Office of the Archbishop of Canterbury at London, 1543 to 1869, London: Harleian Society, 1886, p. 134. There it is recorded that George Reeves married Anne Phipps on 21 September 1675 at Lee in county Kent. This was, again, the same year in which the other George Reeves wrote his will.

The George Reeves who married Anne Phipps was a bachelor of St. Augustine’s in London, and was age 26. Anne was of Lee in Kent and was a “spinster” whose age was about 18. In those days, the term “spinster” simply meant that she was unmarried. The record also notes that her parents were dead and that she was marrying “at the disposal of John Blagrave, of Arborfield, Berks [Berkshire], Esq., & Thomas Bullock, of Binfield, Berks, Gent., who consent.”

Although it may have just been coincidence, it appears that some Phipps and Blagrave connections continued in America, as discussed in past posts. Although the marriage license refers to Reeves as being of St. Augustine’s in London, H.R. Phipps says he was of “Ln,” which one would assume referred to Lincolnshire.

As noted in earlier posts, H.R. Phipps said that George Reeves “deserted” his wife Ann Phipps, after marrying her, and “died in Virginia.” This marriage is also noted in other sources, including Foster, London Marriage Licences, 1521-1869, London: Bernard Quaritch, 1887, p. 1124; H.R. [Henry Ramsay] Phipps, “Phipps Families of Berkshire,” The Berks, Bucks & Oxon Archaeological Journal, Vol. 18, No. 1 – New Series, April 1912, p. 17; and Duncan and Barron, eds., The Register of All the Marriages, Christenings and Burials in the Church of S. Margaret, Lee, in the County of Kent, from 1579 to 1754, Lee, Kent: Charles Rorth for the Lewisham Antiquarian Society, 1888, p. 7.

Various other sources and past posts refer to George Reeves’s wife Ann, Anne, or Anna Phipps as being the twin sister of Constantine Henry Phipps (who became Lord Chancellor of Ireland). Both were born in 1656 in Reading, Berkshire, England. Their parents Francis Phipps and his wife Anne Sharpe are discussed in various past posts. Francis appears in one of the heraldic visitations in Berkshire, and was the source for the Phipps information found in The Four Visitations of Berkshire, Vol. 57, p. 195; and Crisp, ed., Visitation of England and Wales, Notes, Vol. 8, 1909, pp. 156-161. Francis, who was born about 1610, was a son of George and Anne (Elliott) Phipps.

ADDITIONAL NOTES:

By the way, a certain John “Ryves” seems to have been living in Westmoreland County, Virginia during the 1650s and 1660s. A certain George “Reeve” was administrator of the estate of his brother Thomas Reeve, with a ffrancis (Francis) Reve also mentioned, in a 1671 administration somewhere in Virginia. This is referenced in McIlwaine, Minutes of the Council and General Court of Colonial Virginia 1622-1632, 1670-1676, with Notes and Excerpts from Original Council and General Court Records, into 1683, Now Lost, Richmond: Virginia State Library, 1924, p. 287.

Then the same source, on pp. 296-297, refers to the widow of ffrancis (Francis) Reeves as administering the estate of her late husband. The abstract also appears to refer to this ffrancis as a brother of Thomas Reeves, deceased, with a George Reeves having been another brother.

An unconfirmed secondary source refers to George Reeves and his wife Ann as being mentioned in county court records in Middlesex County, Virginia in 1682. If true, this would presumably refer to George Reeves and his wife Anne (Phipps) Reeves who married in 1675.

Then one of the individuals named George Reeves supposedly died in Middlesex County, Virginia in 1688, according to an unconfirmed secondary source. The one who married Anne Phipps, however, was said by Crisp to still be alive in 1695. According to H.R. Phipps, the husband of Anne Phipps died in Virginia, but she returned to England where she lived with her sister Mary at Lee in Kent.

One secondary source says that the will of George Reeves was probated in London in 1689 after he died in Middlesex County, Virginia. This appears to be incorrect, however, and may be confusing the (apparently) two different individuals, or misreading the Virginia Magazine abstract. That abstract says that the will of George Reeves was presented for probate in Middlesex County on 2 April 1689, but it does not say whether this refers to Middlesex County, Virginia or Middlesex County, England (London). That abstract says that he was living in England when he died.

This entire subject appears to be an area in which it would be helpful to examine actual records, since some earlier writings may have confused two or more individuals or two or more locations. There was certainly considerable opportunity for confusion. For example, a reference later in the Virginia Magazine abstract is to a deed dated 1707 from Charles Reeves of Middlesex County, England as heir of George Reeves of Virginia, deceased, but conveyed to a man of Middlesex County, Virginia. The abstract concludes by noting that George Reeves had been a resident of Middlesex County for a number of years, but without specifying which Middlesex County.

The abstract in the Virginia Magazine of History and Biography refers to George Reeves “of the Island of Virginia, Merchant, now residing in England,” not Virginia, who wrote his will 1 November 1675 but who had died by 23 April 1689. That is when letters of administration were issued to his brother Charles Reeve AKA Reeves. The abstract, at that point, also refers to this George Reeves as having been a George Reeves, Jr. That being the case, who was Sr. and who was Jr.? Were there THREE individuals named George Reeves?

James Phips, 1818 Neighbor in Surry County, North Carolina

Yet another important document has been found by Wayne Witcher of the A Witcher Family Genealogy website. This North Carolina state land grant, transcribed below, appears to involve the same James Phips of Surry County, North Carolina who was referenced in the last post. This grant is significant because it further demonstrates the close relationship between James Phipps, Stephen Potter, and Ephraim Witcher, as discussed in previous posts. By extension, it further demonstrates a connection to John Fips or Phips, who died about 1769 in Charlotte County, Virginia, who had clear ties back to Brunswick County, Virginia.

As Wayne notes, “It is believed that Stephen Potter married a Phipps woman, but we know for sure that Ephraim Witcher married a Phipps, so this is yet another piece of our puzzle, as we work to determine who this family of Phipps men were.” Ephraim Witcher married Elizabeth Fips or Phips, daughter of John Phips or Fips who died in Charlotte County, Virginia. Their son Taliaferro Witcher appears in Ashe County, North Carolina records, associated with the Samuel Phips family.

The grant is to Benjamin Potter, giving him 100 acres in Surry County, North Carolina. The land is described as being on “the big branch Waters of” Mitchell or Mitchell’s River, adjacent to the land of James Phips, Stephen Potter, and Shodrach (Shadrach) Franklin.

In a post from several years ago, it was noted that Shadrach Franklin witnessed an 1843 deed headed “Witchers Heirs Division of Negroes.” That deed refers to Elizabeth, widow of Ephraim Witcher and daughter of John Fips or Phips of Lunenburg County and later Charlotte County, Virginia.

Regarding Stephen Potter, various earlier posts discussed the relationship to the Potter family. Elder Gideon Potter, the pioneer Baptist minister, wrote “My mother’s name was Martha Phipps, and was of Welsh descent.” He also said that he was baptized in Mitchell’s River, the same river which is specifically referred to in the land grant transcribed below.

We’ve discussed in the past how it appears that Gideon Potter’s brother was Benjamin Potter. Their mother Martha (Phipps) Potter appears to have lived with Benjamin after her husband Stephen Potter died.

From Surry County, North Carolina Deed Book R, pp. 438-439:

James Phipps in Surry County, North Carolina, 1812

The webmaster of the A Witcher Genealogy website has found a deed which is highly significant to those researching the Phipps or Phips or Fips etc. family in northwest North Carolina. We’ve already known from other records that some sort of relationship involving the family of Samuel Phips of Wilkes and later Ashe County, North Carolina, on the one hand, and that of John Phips or Fips who died about 1769 in Charlotte County, Virginia, on the other hand, appeared highly probable. That has appeared to be the case for a variety of reasons, some of them having to do with interactions between the family of John’s daughter Elizabeth Phips or Fips (who married Ephraim Witcher) with the family of Samuel Phips. Ephraim and Elizabeth moved into Surry County, North Carolina, where the deed transcribed below was written.

The newly found deed appears to point to these relationships in an even stronger way. In 1812 in Surry County, North Carolina, James Phipps bought 100 acres of land on Christian’s Creek. The deed was witnessed by two of the Witchers – John and James. The webmaster believes that James is probably the brother of Elizabeth Fips or Phips who married Ephraim Witcher. The deed was also witnessed by Lewis Phipps.

In past posts, we’ve noted a James Phipps, perhaps the one who bought the land in Surry County, who was born about 1790 in North Carolina. In the 1840 and 1850 censuses he was living in Madison County, Georgia, which is adjacent to Elbert County. A Lewis Phipps was living in Elbert County by 1799.

Lewis Phipps was directly involved with Ambrose Witcher, who appears to have been related to Ephraim Witcher, son in law of John Fips or Phips of Lunenburg and later Charlotte County, Virginia. We know from various other documents that this John Phips or Fips had ties to Brunswick County, Virginia. Another individual who came through Surry County, North Carolina was Jordan Phipps,son of Benjamin Phipps of Sussex County, Virginia, who is believed to have been the brother of Joseph Phipps of Brunswick County, Virginia.

The Lewis Phips or Phipps who was in Madison County, Georgia was presumably the same one who later surfaces in Lawrence County, Indiana. The latter location is where various close relatives of Samuel Phips of Ashe County, North Carolina migrated. The Lawrence County connections show even more evidence pointing back to John Fips or Phips of Lunenburg/Charlotte Counties, Virginia through his family’s relationships with the Potter and Roy families. You can explore this further through various previous posts.

In the deed transcribed below, James Phipps purchased land from a certain Wilson Davis. Who was he? Searches have not turned up much about him, but there was a Mary Ann Davis, called Polly, who according to unconfirmed secondary sources married Jonathan Stamper, Jr. Presumably this Mary was related to the Wilson Davis of the deed.

The Jonathan Stamper, Sr. family was closely associated with the Phips family and their relatives in the Surry, Wilkes, and Ashe Counties area of North Carolina. Jonathan Stamper – either Sr. or Jr. or both, but usually not indicated – appears in various records in that area. Jonathan Stamper, apparently Sr., was Surry County constable at one time.

The sister of this Jonathan Stamper, Jr. who married Mary Davis was Martha Frances Stamper, called Frankie. She married Jesse Toliver, of the family from whom Taliaferro Witcher, son of Ephraim Witcher, presumably derived his name. (Taliaferro is pronounced “Toliver.”) Samuel Phips of Wilkes and later Ashe County, North Carolina submitted testimony on behalf of this same Jesse Toliver when he applied for a Revolutionary War pension.

Jesse Toliver’s son John married Anna Long, and descendants of John Toliver were a part of the Long-Phips outlaw gang, as was Samuel Phips’ grandson John Meshack Phips, who married one of the Longs. John and Anna (Long) Toliver’s daughter Mathursa Toliver married Mathew Phips, son of Jesse Phips and grandson of Samuel Phips of Ashe County, North Carolina.

As for the Mary Davis who married Jonathan Stamper, Jr., multiple website refer to a story that asserts that she was killed for her gold by men named Hart, Cox, and Bledsoe. Various records demonstrate an extremely close connection between the Phips family in the area and the families of Cox and Hart. More Stamper connections to the Long and Phipps families are evident in the “Lineage of Jonathan Stamper and Mary ‘Polly’ Davis” web page linked below.

Further, another secondary source links the Stamper family to the Mayo family. We’ve discussed the Mayo surveyor connection earlier. Yet another secondary source refers to one of the Stampers in the area, a John Stamper, as owning and using a surveying instrument of some kind. Also, we’ve found unexpected Burton connections over and over and over, ad nauseam, and John Pleasants Burton, another individual who made the trek from the Ashe County area to Lawrence County, Indiana, married Susannah Stamper.

Samuell Phips in Undated Tax List, Wilkes County, North Carolina

Prior posts have referred to the undated militia list from Montgomery County, Virginia, found between two records dated 1781, showing “Sammuwill Phips” and “Sammuell Phips Sen.” This was in the same very general area later defined as Wilkes County, North Carolina and Grayson County, Virginia (and eventually Ashe County, North Carolina).

From his age at the time, we know that the Samuel without the “Sen.” designation (in other words, Samuel, Jr.)  in that militia list would have to have been the Samuel Phips who shows up in various Wilkes County, North Carolina records, as does his father in law George Reeves. By 1800, this younger Samuel appeared exclusively in Ashe County, North Carolina records except when he was referred to in Grayson County, Virginia as an heir of his father in law George Reeves who, by that time, had been appearing in records in that county, which is across the state line and adjacent to Ashe County, North Carolina

No other record has been found so far regarding the older Samuel. Perhaps he died in the Montgomery County, Virginia/Wilkes County, North Carolina area shortly after the militia list, or perhaps he moved on to another location. An undated tax list in Wilkes County, which is partially transcribed below, lists “Samuell phips” along with members of other families which became interrelated with his family.

That list only shows one Samuel, so presumably the older one had died or moved by this time. He is shown with 400 acres and 1 poll. Published abstracts of other tax lists in Wilkes County, North Carolina show Samuel Phips (Jr.) with 400 acres. He appears as such, called simply Samuel Phips according to abstracts, in an undated list which may date from 1793, and again with 400 acres in 1794, 1795, and 1797, but with 450 acres in 1799.

The idea that part of Montgomery County, Virginia may have been redefined later, first as part of Wilkes County, North Carolina and later as Ashe County, North Carolina is suggested by the cluster of related surnames which appear more or less together in Montgomery, then Wilkes, and then in Ashe.

In the list transcribed below, Thomas Collins appears on the same page as “Samuell phips” in Wilkes County. Then an 1801 Ashe County land entry record, according to an abstract, refers to a land entry by Thomas Collins adjacent to Samuel Phips in Ashe County. Various specific individuals listed below in Wilkes County as Samuel Phips neighbors appear later as such in Ashe County.

In the list below, all names are consecutive and are found on the same page. Close relationships and involvements have been noted in past posts with some of the surnames on the page, perhaps most notably the Long and Toliver families. The page which follows the one transcribed below contains yet more pertinent names, including another Toliver (John Toliver) and Zachariah Spurling (his daughter Jane, known as Jennie, married Samuel Phips’s son Jesse).
