April 10, 1608
  -- The John & Francis,

The John & Francis departed Virginia and arrived at London (probably in June or July, since Captain Newport was also the commander of the next vessel to Virginia).
The Phoenix, which had left England in its company, had not yet arrived (but did arrive on April 20).
Ship and Passenger Information:
Type:  small bark
Captain Christopher Newport, commander
Passenger:
Namontack . . . Powhatan's "son" (actually a servant), taken to England
                as a "Virginia prince". Returned with the "Second Supply".
               (Newport's "sonne", Thomas Savage, actually a laborer who
               arrived in the First Supply, was traded by John Smith as
                a hostage for Namontack's safe return.)

Gibson, Thomas Tradesman*


16 February 1624  Francis Gibson is listed among the living on  February 16, 1623/24  at James Cittye, Virginia.  "Francis" is often transcribed when the name is known to be "Thomas"  -- having not seen the original is it possible this is Thomas Gibson who came with Christopher Newport in 1608, or perhaps his wife, Francis?

1635 Yeoman Gibson, aged 16 years, came over to Virginia, in the Elizabeth, ; Nicholas Gibson, aged 22 years, in the Assurance; John Gibson, aged  30 years, in the Safety; Richard Gibson, aged 25 years, and William Gibson,  aged 19 years, in the Expedition, all to Virginia, in 1635.

VA records show John Utie, Jr. was deceased by 1647.  [See Utie Notes]

In the Lightfoot cemetery at Sandy Point, Charles City County is buried; Thomas Gibson, Gibby Gibson and Francis Gibson.  It seems likely this Gibby Gibson is son of Thomas and the Godson of Edmund Howell and the same Gibson Gibson, son of Elizabeth Chavis.  Many researchers have listed Elizabeth as the daughter of Thomas Chavis/Shavers but it seems more likely she may have married as a widow to William Chavis, son of Thomas Chavis/Shavers.[jp]

24 August 1767  Gideon Gibson made a deed of gift of three slaves (Achilles, Pleasant, and Pleasant's youngest daughter Judith) to John and Agnes Gibson's children

24th July 1768, A Petition, of William White, was presented to the house, and Read in the words following (viz) That on the 24th day of July 1768, your Petitioner was summoned by George Thompson, Sergeant of the Company of Militia, to which your Petitioner belongs, to assist him, who was also a Constable, in serving a warrant of Robert Weaver Esquire for relieving Joseph Holland, Lieutenant of the said Company of Militia, who was taken and forceable confined by a number of disorderly People. That he being ready and desirous to shew his affection for the Laws and Liberties of his Country, did meet at the place appointed by the said Sergeant, and did on the next day, march under his Command towards the house where Mr. Holland was confined, near which they were met by a great number of People of different Colors (viz) Whites, Blacks and Mulattoes, who formed two Lines, into which as soon as the Constable and four men had entered, the rioters immediately surrounded, and knocked them down.
That when this was done, one of the chief of the Rioters, Gideon Gibson, called shoot down Billey White, for I have got Reubin, and if you kill Billey we will manage the rest easy enough. Your Petitioner finding several armed Men surrounding him, drew his Cutlass, desired them to keep off, and endeavoured to defend himself, but was soon knocked down. That by his Fathers help (James Taylor White - EC), he got up, and tried to get his Father away, but in a very little time, the latter being again knocked down, he turned to his assistance, when several Guns were discharged at your Petitioner, a Ball from one of which passed thro the skin of his Hip, and a second entered the Bone of his right arm, about five Inches above the Elbow, and going along the said Bone, came out a little below his Elbow, totally shattered and destroyed the bone of his said arm. That your petitioner finding himself thus disabled, either to help his Father or himself, endeavoured to make his Escape, but after running a little way, fainted and fell; after some time recovering, he found several of the Rioters about him one of which said shot him thro' the Head at once; but another replied, no Damn him he can't live long, let him feel himself Die.
 That they carried him into the house, and threw him on the Floor, where he lay weltering in his own blood; when after having whipped his brother and others of the Party whom they had taken, they permitted your Petitioners Brother to take him away. That your Petitioner by this Melancholy accident, hath not only lost the use of his right arm, but finds his Constitution greatly weakened and impaired by the great quantity of Blood which he lost. That your Petitioner is by Trade a Cooper, and did usually earn thirty shillings per day, by working at the Trade, by which he was enabled to support his large Family, consisting of his wife and eight young Children, besides three poor Orphans, Relatives of his wife, who have not any other Person to take care of them. But that by loss of his arm, he is not only totally disabled from working at his Trade, but also in a very great measure to do anything in the Planting business. Your Petitioner therefore humbly Prays your Honors to take his Malancholy case into Consideration, and to grant him the Annuity allowed by the Militia Act, to such as are maimed and disabled in the Public Service,

In 1628 he received a land grant at Archers Hope. In 1629 he was a Burgess for the area between Archers Hope and Martin's hundred. Governor Harvey added him to the Council. In 1630 a resolution of the Council said he and John West, (brother of Lord Delaware West), had "seated" the first settlement on the York River and gave each 600 acres.
He married Ann Longworth in Heponstall, York Co. England in 1616. John Utie died about 1638 and Ann married Richard Bennett, nephew of Edward Bennett. (see Bennett). Richard Bennett became Governor of VA 1652-53 and Governor of Maryland in 1654.

===================================================

CHIPPOAKES CREEK

1.Adam Ivey was a small-scale tenant farmer, almost certainly growing tobacco. Fifty acres was a small landholding, but a single field worker was capable of managing only three or four acres of tobacco in those days. Fifty acres was a typical holding for a planter with only himself to work the fields.[5] His location can be approximated, since nearly all the persons mentioned in these records lived south of the James River in the neck of land bounded by Upper Chippoakes Creek and Wards Creek. This neck included what was later the parish of Martins Brandon, in which Adam Ivey apparently lived at his death, in what would later become Prince George County. It was quite close to Surry County, Upper Chippoakes Creek being the later boundary between Prince George and Surry.
