Notes for Fannie Talley Godsey:

Dedicated to Fannie and Lyle By Mr & Mrs. P. J. Flippen

Cumberland County VA & its People, p99

You have learned the art of real living, beyond any doubt,

For year after year, you have turned the lining out.

The shadows may come, but you chased them away,

And smiles, not frowns, gladden other lives, day by day.

You've made Home a Divine Institution, not just a place to dwell.

And have carefully trained your children to live right, as well.

So they love their home, which is a home to their many friedns, too,

All of which reflects in their characters, as few lives do.

Not only through your home, but wherever has come the call,

Be it church, school, or public life, you have promptly answered all,

Given of your time and talents, your fellow man to uplift

And taught your boys and girls to love the same kind of gift.

You have traveled the same road that most of us do,

With days of sunshine, days of shadow, and problems not a few.

But why all the rhetoric? What are we trying to say?

Simply that you merit and deserve all the joys of your day.

Notes for Mary Catherine Talley:

Hard to pin down when (and even where) she was born. Based on 1880 census (most reputable source), she was 32, which means she was born in 1847-1848. World One Family Tree gives a specific date but I do not know the source.

For some reason, Mary C gives her age as 32 instead of 35 in the 1880 census. I guess she didn't like getting older :-)

1880 Census gives her parents as from VA

Notes for Clinton Lacy godsey:

Source: Julian Sorensen, 1994:

Court Minutes Book No, 1, Page 427, Scott County, VA.

Clinton appears in the 1809 Russell County, VA Personal Property Tax List with two white tithes, and appears in the Scott County, VA Property Tax list through 1819, when he was supplanted by Elizabeth Godsey. A Daniel Godsey also appears in the 1818 Scott County Personel Property Tax list, having apparently reached the age of 21, and he was probably the second of two white tithes with Clinton Godsey in the 1809 Russell County, VA Tax list. He next appears in the 1820 Pulaski County, KY census, aged 16-26. Elizabeth Godsey appears in the 1820 Scott County, VA census with 3 females, under 10 years of age, Matilda, Melinda, and Sally. They are named as heirs of Clinton Godsey in a deed between George Ewing and Malinda, Matilda and Sally Godsey.(Scott County, VA, Deed Book No. 4, page 2, July 1, 1829). Julian believes that he was very likely a son of Thomas and Phebe Lacy Godsey, The use of "Lacy" in his name is strong indication that his mother was a Lacy. He could not have been the son of either Austin or William Godsey as he was clearly born before their marriages.

129. Betty (Godsey)238, born in Probably Virginia; died Abt. 1746 in Henrico County, VA.

Notes for Thomas Godsey:

William H. Godsey in his book, "GODSEY FAMILY HISTORY", 1969, states that James and Thomas Godfrey, ages 10 and 12, came to Charles Town, Province of Carolina, in the custody of a Huguenot family named Ammonette aboard the Richmond in 1680. Then soon after 1680 the names James and Thomas Godsey appear on Justice of the Peace documents in Carolina.

A search by genealogist Raymond Foster of the IGI Marriage Register of St. Dunstan Stepney, London/Middlesex, England, in September 1992 found baptism records of James and Thomas Godfrey. Thomas's birthdate agrees with William H. Godsey's account. The Richmond made two trips to Charles Town in the 1679/1680 time frame. No ships papers have been found to document the passenger lists. An explanation of how Thomas Godsey got from Charles Town, SC to the Huguenot settlement of Manikintown, VA, is found in "Huguenots of South Carolina", page 19. The statement is made that "many of the early Carolina Huguenots had gone to Virginia between 1690 and 1702 and were naturalized by the special Act of 1702". The Ammonet family name appears in Virginia records of the early 1700's. Betty Godsey is named as his wife for their first two children. Mary Godsey was named as the Executrix of his will. He left his property to son John, the youngest, and possibly the child of Thomas and Mary. John Chaistain and Charles Amonnet witnessed his will.

An inventory of his estate published January 9, 1749 was made by Thomas Lacy, James Briant and William Wooldridge.

Christening: 06 Jan 1668/69, St. Dunstan Stepney, London, England

Notes for Betty (Godsey):

Betty is named as Thomas Godsey's wife in the "Douglas Register", by Jones, 1966, page 376 as being in the King William Parish in June, 1744. She is not named in Thomas's will and must have predeceased him.

Children of Thomas Godsey and Betty (Godsey) are:

64 i. Thomas Godsey, Jr., born Abt. 1721; died Aft. 13 Jan 1780; married Phoebe (Febe) Lacy 1745.

ii. Henry Godsey239, born Abt. 1712 in Chesterfield County, VA; died Bef. 1748 in Virginia.

Notes for Henry Godsey:

By inference Henry is considered a son of Thomas and Betty. Thomas, II, named his oldest son Henry. Also, he, Marie Godsey, and Phoebe Lacy were godparents to Ester Bernar, daughter of Antoine and Sara Godsey Bernar. He was on the June 1744 list of King William Parish as follows: "James Cocke, Henry Godsie, Jack, Dick, Sarah, Hannah, Betsy, Jane". Marie was probably Henry's wife as they both were named as Godparents to Ester Bernar in 1742. Bonnie Eden (Sept. 1999), believes that Henry's wife, Marie, was probably Marie Woolridge. Henry Godsey and Marie Woolridge are named as godparents to a child prior to Henry and Marie Godsey being named godparents to Ester Bernar.

Source: "The Legacy of the De Lacy, Lacey, Lacy Family, 1066-1994", by Gerald Lacey, pages 250 and 252.

The seven children of Thomas and Ann are named, as are their grandchildren.

From "Virginia Colonial Soldiers", by Bockstrusk, 1988, on page 218, Thomas Lacy is listed on July 4, 1702 as member of the Lower Company of Foot, Capt. George Keeling and Col. John Lightfoot commanding, New Kent County, VA.

From http://homepages.rootsweb.com/~elacey/thlacy.htm

1b. Thomas Lacy II

(b ca 1683/4 New Kent Co., Va.) Planter. Practically nothing is known of him. There is a record in the Bible which belonged to Rev. William Sterling Lacy, taken from earlier records in the Bible of his father, stating that Thomas II married Ann Burnley; no date shown but it is supposed to have been about 1704/6 in New Kent Co., VA.

The parentage of Ann Burnley is not known. Reputedly the family was English and French. There are a few records of Burnleys but none go back as far as Ann who was probably born about 1688 or 1690. She may have been a sister to one John Burnley so is credited with being born about 1670; in fact, she could have been a daughter. There was one John Burnley who returned to England in 1771 leaving a will in Virginia and making another in England in which he devised a considerable estate. In this will is mentioned brothers Zachariah Burnley, Hardin Burnley, Richard Burnley and sisters Elizabeth Duke, Keziah Duke, and Ann Littlepage and sons of a deceased sister, Judith Meriweather, who married James Meriweather. He does not mention a wife or children. This John, who was a merchant, was no doubt the son of John, supposedly born ca 1670, and may have been a cousin or uncle to Ann. He was not a brother, else he would have mentioned her in his will.

It is most interesting to note that Zachariah Burnley held 880 acres of land in Bedford Co., Va., which he sold to Thomas and Elliott Lacy (sons of Thomas Lacy and Ann Burnley), and to Thomas Deen in 1758. This transaction will be discussed in the section on Elliott Lacy.

Authenticated records of the names of all of the children of Thomas and Ann are lacking, but the names of three sons are known, Thomas (III), William, and Stephen. The names of the others, proven by circumstantial evidence, are Elkanah, Nathaniel, Elliott and tentatively Phoebe. There may have been other, especially daughters, of whom we have no knowledge.

The Legend of Thomas Lacy and the Pirate

 

The story of Thomas Lacy capturing a pirate, reputedly Blackbeard, has come down through the generations. The furthest back it goes is to the Rev. William Sterling Lacy, a man of outstanding character and the source of much correct information on the family. This story has been suspect because of the claims that it was the pirate, Blackbeard, who was captured and slain. This could not possibly be because Edmond Drummond, a.k.a. Edward Teach a.k.a. "Blackbeard" was born 1680-1690 and was killed 22 November 1718 in a fight with Lieut. Robert Maynard and company.

The incredibly true story has now surfaced, much of it consistent with the important facts in William Sterling Lacy's version. It was found by Gene Lacy doing an on-line search in the Virginia Colonial Records Project on the Homepage of the Library of Virginia. The Library spent the years between 1955 and 1985 visiting more than one hundred libraries and archives in Great Britain, Ireland, and France to survey the collections. They subsequently obtained microfilm on 14,704 Survey Reports, and acquired 963 reels of microfilmed documents. It was among these documents that the story of Thomas Lacy and the pirate surfaced.

First we present the story as told by William Sterling Lacy. This is taken from Hubert Wesley Lacey's book, "The Thomas Lacy III Family of Hanover and Buckingham Counties, Virginia".

COPY OF OLD PAPER WRITTEN BY WILLIAM STERLING LACY, SON OF REV. DRURY LACY.

ORIGINAL IS IN THE POSSESSION OF ALFRED P. JONES, M..D. OF ROANOKE VA.

Passing through the upper end of Luta Prairie about the year 1828 or '29, I stopped at the house of old Mr. Wm. Rice; he said he was 85 or 86 years of age, and brother of Rev. David Rice, one of the first Presbyterian Ministers of Kentucky. His mind was unimpaired, his memory remarkable and he was esteemed a consistent Christian man. He told me that when a small boy, he saw my ancestor who emigrated from Wales, and was then residing in Hanover Co., Va., remarking that he was one of the oldest and tallest men he ever saw; his name was Thomas Lacy. He told me his history was very peculiar, that when a young man he embarked on board a vessel from Wales with other emigrants, with a view of settling in Virginia; that during the voyage he was captured by a notorious pirate who went under the familiar name of Black Beard, but whose name was Taike; that every passenger on board was made to walk the plank with the exception of Thomas Lacy, who the pirate swore was too fine a looking fellow to be drowned and that he would impress him into his service and make a noble pirate of him.

A short time after the pirate put into Ocracoke Sound, and cast anchor on a desolate coast, where he was in the habit of trading with some lawless accomplices.

A man of suspicious character, I think by the name of Minnis, applied to the Governor of Virginia, then residing on Jamestown Island, to aid him in fitting out a large Merchant Vessel and collecting a large number of desperate adventurers with a view of capturing the pirate. He was induced to do this, from the fact that a very large reward had been offered by the British Government and several of her colonies for the capture of the pirate.

It seems that Minnis was acquainted with the habits of Black Beard and knew at what time he would be on the coast. The vessel was fitted and crew collected. Immediately on entering Ocracoke Inlet the vessel was so fitted to appear almost a wreck. Taking advantage of a favorable wind and tide she sailed slowly under ragged sailes and crippled masts to where the piratical vessel lay, only four or five men on deck making signals of distress as they approached the pirate. All the men, completely armed, hid under the hatches of the vessel. The pirate seemed amused at her slow approach, supposing they had her entirely in their power. The piratical vessel was anchored over a half mile from shore. At this time nearly half the crew were on shore trading as above mentioned. As soon as she reached the pirate she was grappled and drawn up alongside of her. Instantly all the hatches were thrown up and armed men in large numbers rushed on the deck of the pirate. At this instant Thomas Lacy drew his cutlass and shouting with trumpet-voice, "I am a true man. I am a prisoner", began to cut down the pirates on the right and left. This circumstance increased their panic and threw them into some confusion so that they were quickly overcome by superior numbers. Not one would surrender and every one was slain. Black Beard recognized Minnis and cursed him as a traitor and was soon after killed.

They then proceeded with their prize to Jamestown where the good Conduct of Thomas Lacy being reported to the Governor, he gave him a share of the prize money, and a tract of land on the frontier in which is now Hanover Co., saying he would make a fine Indian fighter. In a few years after Thomas Rice sailed from Wales and settled in the same neighborhood of Thomas Lacy. Thomas Lacy married his daughter to whom he had been engaged before leaving Wales.

This Thomas Rice was the ancestor of this William Rice who gave me the above narrative.

Signed: William S. Lacy

 

 

FROM THE COLONIAL RECORDS PROJECT-LIBRARY OF VIRGINIA

Survey Report No. 4385

13 May 1700 This document contains 21 depositions sworn before the Court of Oyer & Terminer for the trial of pirates in Virginia before Peter Beverly, Clerk of Arraigns. Some of the depositions are sworn by individual mariners, others by groups of mariners from different ships captured by Lewis Guittar. All ships were outward bound from Virginia, except the Pennsylvania Merchant, which was inbound from England. On 17 April (1699) the BALTIMORE was captured; on 18 April the GEORGE of Pennsylvania bound for Jamica. The master of the FRIENDSHIP of Belfast-Hans Haniel-was killed when the pirates fired on his ship. On 28 April 4 ships were captured within the Cape of Virginia including the PENNSYLVANIA MERCHANT, and the INDIAN KING of Virginia and the NICHOLSON. The PENNSYLVANIA MERCHANT WAS BURNT. The crews taken prisoner were confined in the hold of the pirate ship which was call LA PAIX (PEACE); some other being made to throw cargoes of tobacco and other goods to Lyn-Haven by the pirates. On 28 April Captain John Alread, Commander of H.M.S. ESSEX having heard of the pirates' exploits came ashore and informed H. E. Francis Nicholson H.M. Governor General of Virginia and Captain Passenger of H.M.S. SHOREHAM that there was a Pirate in Lyn-Haven Bay. Whereupon captain Passenger and His Excellency, together with Captain Alread and Peter Hayman Esquire, went aboard H.M.S. SHOREHAM and in coming out of the James River engaged the Pirate ship. Captain Guittar fought under a blood red flag. Peter Hayman Esquire was slain. After an engagement which lasted 6 to 8 hours John Lympany, a passenger from the PENNSYLVANIA MERCHANT, was ordered by Lewis Guittar to swim aboard the SHOREHAM to inform H. E. the Governor that there were English prisoners aboard his ship and that they and the ship would be blown up unless H. E. was prepared to grant Quarter to Guittar and his men if they surrendered. The Governor gave his promise. About 124 pirates were taken prisoner and some 25 to 30 pirates were slain. Between 40 and 50 English prisoners were liberated.

Survey Report No. 4378

Part I contains two documents 17 and 18 relating to charges of Piracy against Lewis Guittar and others and 18 also relates to a charge of Piracy against David Evand and Turlagh Sulivan and others.

8 November 1700. The warrant for the execution of Lewis Guittar and members of his crew for Piracy upon the High Seas.

21-21 October 1700. Not of Judgment at Sessions, sentencing Lewis Guittar and a number of his crew to death.

Survey Report No. 5918

An Admiralty memorial, dated 12 September 1701, recommending an allowance of 23 shillings a month for 5 months to Thomas Lacy and William Woolgar for the capture of the French pirate Lewis Guittar, within the Cape of Virginia.

Survey Report No. 6672

Lords of the Admiralty to the Navy Board. 17 September 1701. By direction of the Lords Justices, their Lordships ordered the Navy Board to pay Thomas Lacey and William Woolgar each five months pay as A.B. of the Royal Navy as a gratuity for their voluntary service on board H.M.S. SHOREHAM, Capt. Passenger, in her action with a pirate ship off the Capes of Virginia.

Conclusion: Thomas Lacy was listed as a sailor from one of the ships that was captured on the 28th of April 1699. Of the three ships captured, only the Nicholson was reported as leaving crew behind in its attempt to escape from the pirate. The above report makes it clear that Thomas Lacy served on the Shoreham during the battle. Thus, we conclude that he was a seaman aboard the Nicholson, was left in port in the hasty departure, volunteered to serve on the Shoreham and received his reward for this service.

Notes for Thomas Lacy:

Source: "The Legacy of the De Lacy, Lacey, Lacy Family, 1066-1994", by Gerald Lacey. Thomas I descendants found on pages 250 and 252; and "The William and Elliott Lacy Families of New Kent and Chesterfield Counties, Virginia with forebearers and Descendants", by Hubert Wesley Lacey and Howard Elton Lacey, 1996.

The Foreword to the book states that the Lacy's were chiefs among warrior clans which accompanied Rollo (Roffe, The Granger) from Southern Scandinavia to England, Ireland, and Normandy in the 880-911 time frame. In 911 King Charles III signed the treaty of St. Clair-Sur Epte giving Rollo the present day territory of Normandy. The original Lacy's were Northmen (Vikings) from possibly Norway or Denmark.

The Lacy family in Normandy derived their name from the commune of Lassy, the Lacius or Latius estates in the county of Calvados. The village of Lassy today is near the town of Vire in France, south of Bayeau. Various spelling of the name include: de Lacy, de Lassy, de Lassey, de Lassie, Lacie, Lasei, Leacy, Lasey, Lacey, and Lacy. Thomas I Lacy is reported to have come from Wales to Virginia between 1680 and 1682. Thomas Mann paid for the transportation of ten persons to Virginia in 1882, Thomas Lacy was one of the ten. Greald Lacey believes that Thomas Lacy was from the ancient de Lacy kingdom of Pontefract in Yorkshire, and that due to political intrigue between King Charles II and France in the 1680's, Thomas sold his holdings in Yorkshire and went to Wales and later to Virginia. (Page 250) He made his home in New Kent (later Hanover) County, VA. However, in "William Lacy and Elliott Lacy Families", Thomas Lacy is said to be of French Huguenot stock, and from Wales. Thomas was alive in 1732, but no record exists of his death.

Ilbert de Lacy, his half brother Walter de Lacy and Walter's sons, Hugh and Roger de Lacy, came from France in 1066 with the invasion force of William the Conqueror and were rewarded by gifts of territories after defeating the English. Walter and sons were given territories on the Welsh border. They built castles at Ewyas Lacy, Mansell Lacy, Holme Lacy, Stoke Lacy, and Stanton Lacy, all located on the Welsh border. Ilbert de Lacy, after William the Conqueror captured York, negotiated the surrender of the Honour of Pontefract, complete with Pontefract Castle and Abbey and the surrounding territories. Pontefract is located on an old former Roman military road, eight miles south of Selby and twelve miles north of Doncaster. The territories form a rectangle 25 miles by 20 miles, from Selby, west to Bradford (near Leeds) and south from Shipley to Pennistone, near Barnsley, an area of 500 square miles, almost centered between the Irish Sea and the North Sea. In 1086 the titles to Pontefract and surrounding territories were deeded to Ilbert de Lacy. This deed is preserved in the Domesday Books. It may be that if Thomas Lacy was from Pontefract, then Phoebe Lacy and her Godsey descendents are from the Ilbert De Lacy line.

The book, "The Legacy of the De Lacy, Lacey, Lacy Family, 1066-1994", by Gerald Lacey, recounts the families history from the reigns of William the Conqueror through the reigns of King William II, King Henry I, King Henry II, King Richard I (Richard the Lion Hearted), King John (Lackland, Softsword), King Henry II, King Edward I, King Edward II, King Edward III, King Richard II, King Henry IV, King Henry V (the Greatest Man that ever ruled England), King Henry VI, King Edward IV, King Richard III, King Richard IV, King Henry VII, King Henry VIII, Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth I, King James I (James VI of Scotland), King Charles I (Stuart King), King Charles II, King James II, King William III and Mary III. The de Lacy/Lacy's were prominent throughout all these reigns.

Thomas Lacy I of New Kent and Hanover Counties, Virginia

1a. Thomas Lacy, immigrant, reputed to have come from Wales to Virginia between 1680 and 1685 and to have settled in that part of New Kent County which years later was cut off into Hanover County, an area which was then on the very frontier of the early and somewhat scattered settlements.

It is this Thomas who is credited with being the progenitor of a long and prolific line of Lacys who resided in various parts of Virginia, principally the counties of Hanover, Louisa, Goochland, Albemarle, Powhatan, Chesterfield, Henrico, Buckingham, Bedford, and Halifax, spreading to the Carolinas and Georgia. With Virginia as the focal point, descendants spread fanlike to all points south, west and northwest. Today descendants of this line live in almost every state in the Union. This branch is by far the largest of any of the pioneer Lacy families of Virginia.

Due to the loss of the old New Kent and Hanover County records--lost in the tragic burning of Richmond toward the very end of the Civil War where, ironically, they had been taken for safe-keeping and also the loss of the Registers of the parishes in which the Lacys lived, very little is known of Thomas and his family. His year of birth is estimated to be about 1660 and his place of residence before coming to America to have been Wales, according to an old document in the family and according to tradition. Thomas Lacy (1800-1879) of St. Clair Co., Ill., a son of Lionel Lacey and a grandson of Elliott Lacy, a descendant, told his niece in 1863 -- Miss Pamelia Lacey -- that the Lacys came from Wales. What Thomas knew came to him from his father and his account of the family, as given to Miss Pamelia, has been corroborated in every instance where official records have been found.

By tradition, subject Thomas was of French Huguenot stock, perhaps a son of a Huguenot who had fled France and settled in Wales. This tradition of French Huguenot ancestry exists among widely separated branches of the family, some of whom have been out of contact with one another for generations. It has come down through the author's own line, the sire who left Virginia shortly after the ending of the Revolutionary War. Rev. William Henry Foote in his "Sketches of Virginia", published in 1850, in writing of Rev. Drury Lacey (1758-1815), states:

"His father, William Lacy, a grandson of the immigrant. . . of English descent and Norman-French extraction. His mother, Elizabeth Rice, was a cousin to Benjamin Rice of Bedford, the father of Rev. Doctors John H. and Benjamin H. Rice."

Prof. Austin W. Smith (b. 1885), then of Cookesville, Tenn., author of the "George-Lacey Genealogy" and himself a Lacy descendant, in his letter of Dec. 8, 1936 wrote:

"Dear Mr. Lacey:

I was delighted to hear from you. I have been engaged in the task for some time in collecting material for a book of the Lacy family. My great-grandmother, Susannah Lacy, daughter of Matthew Lacy of Goochland County, Va., son of Stephen Lacy of same county, married Robert George and came to Warren County, Tenn., after spending a number of years in KY. She lived to be 92 years of age. My father who died in 1929 at the age of 90 knew her well as did my mother who is still living at the age of 90. She was always proud of the fact that she was French, of the Huguenots who came to America. Her name was Susannah de Lacy, French, you will readily see, though she accepted the English 'Lacy' . Her grandson, who is now living in Texas, knew her as she lived with them the last few years of her life. His name is Law Lacy, or de Lacy. He says that there is no question that they were French. She certainly ought to have known as it was her great-grandfather who was the French Huguenot. There are Lacys in Virginia who are not French Huguenots.

I am sure that this bunch of Huguenots were in England for a time but that they were French in origin."

Persecution of the Huguenots in France preceded the edict of Jan. 29, 1535, ordering the "extermination of the heretics", but reached tragic and awful proportions from that date. A great many French Protestants fled the country to save their lives, rather than give up their freedom of conscience and their religious beliefs. Many of these settled in England and Holland. This migration continued until the middle of the 18th century. The Revocation of the Edict of Nantes in 1685 merely accentuated this mass migration, and France lost, to her detriment, over 400,000 of her best artisans and citizens. The family of Thomas de Lacy was already in England by 1680. Many of them settled in Wales and Ireland where they became very prominent.

We find in English Heraldry a seeming variation of the Lacy-Normandy coat-of-arms, which may signify a family of Norman extraction. In "Lacy of Walsham in the Willows, Counties of Norfolk and Suffolk" their coat-of-arms is:

"Quarterly, argent and sable, on a bend gules three martlets or, over all a label of five points the last, each charged with an ermine spot. Crest: Out of a ducal coronet gules a demi-eagle wings espanded or, in the beak an arrow of the first headed and feathered argent."

(Burke's "General Armory")

The Norman coat-of-arms is: "Quarterly or and gu, a bend sa. over all a label three points ar."

("A complete Book of Heraldry", London MDCCCXX. Jos. Edminston, Esq. F.S. A.)

Note the similarity of these coats of armor. However, it is unlikely that the Lacys of Suffolk and Norfolk are the parent family of subject Thomas Lacy, because these two counties are located on the far side east coast of England and thus some distance from Wales. However, they may have been an off-shoot of the same family. The names Thomas and Stephen are found in both.

From "Cavaliers & Pioneers", Abstracts of Virginia Land Grants (1623-1800), Virginia Land Office Patents, by Nell Marion Nugent (1924), Vol. 5, Land Office of Va., we find this item:

 

"Grant of 500 acres of land on Chowan River in the Isle of Wight was made to Thomas Mann in 1682 for the transportation of ten persons, among whom were Thomas Lacy, Richard Carter, Giles Thornberry, Ann Dowds, Elizabeth Croomer, and John Middleton."

It cannot be said that this Thomas is the same man as subject Thomas Lacy. but as the date of arrival corresponds with that of subject the possibility is very strong and should be given credence.

Statements have appeared in print at various times about the date of arrival in America of Thomas and some confusion as to Thomas himself. For instance in the Comp. of American Genealogy (Virkus), V. 1. p. 683, it states "Thomas Lacy from England to Va., 1702. Married Ann Burnley." The date of this edition was 1925 and the article is based on material submitted and not on research by Virkus. Subsequent research has proven this information incorrect, as it is now the conclusion that the Thomas who married Ann Burnley was the son of the immigrant Thomas. This conclusion has been arrived at principally from an old document written by Rev. William Sterling Lacy (1791-1881), relating a narrative told him by "old William Rice" about the year 1828 or 1829. Rev. Lacy put this narrative in writing probably sometime before 1850, probably having made some notes at the time of his interview with Mr. Rice. This treasured document is now in the possession of Mrs. Elizabeth (Lacy) Jones of Roanoke, VA., widow of Alfred Power Jones, M. D. This document definitely states that Thomas Lacy came from Wales, was engaged to Miss Rice in Wales, preceded the Rice family to Virginia, who followed a few years later, and he married Miss Rice, daughter of Thomas Rice, after their arrival in Virginia.

In order to assay the credibility of the family data in this article, it would be well to view the character and veracity of "old William Rice" and Rev. Lacy.

William Rice was born about 1742 or 1743, based on the statement that he was 85 or 86 years of age in 1828 or 1829. His place of birth would have been in Hanover County in the locale of the Rice and Lacey homesteads. He was a son of David Rice and Miss Searcy, and a brother of the noted Rev. David Rice (1733-1816), Presbyterian minister of Kentucky, and an uncle to the Elizabeth Rice who married William Lacy (1713-1775). He was a grandson of the immigrant, Thomas Rice. Surely, living in the same neighborhood and being personally in touch with the older members of the family, he would have known of the proper family relationship. He was, according to Rev. Wm. Lacy, a man whose "mind was unimpaired, his memory remarkable", and an "esteemed and consistent Christian man".

Rev. William Sterling Lacy, son of Rev. Drury Lacy, who was a son of the William Lacy who married Elizabeth Rice, mentioned previously, was a man of the highest integrity and retentive memory. He could recite from beginning to end the New Testament and many of the Psalms and portions of the Old Testament. There can be no question but that he wrote the narrative exactly as it was narrated to him.

This document is the only tangible bit of evidence known of the immigrants Thomas Lacy and Thomas Rice, relation to their old world background and their immigration to Virginia, and of the marriage of Thomas Lacey to the daughter of Thomas Rice. All of the old New Kent and Hanover county records were destroyed by fire in 1865, and the Register of St. Paul's Parish is not in existence. The Vestry Book of this parish gives little data.

We learn from this narrative that Thomas Lacy lived to a very ripe old age and that he was an exceedingly tall man, which would tend to discount any Welsh ancestry since the Welsh are of very short stature. It would appear, from the statement of William Rice, that Thomas Lacy was living about the year 1750 since he states that he saw him "when a small boy". Thus Thomas Lacy must have been 85 or more years of age at his death, if born about 1665. His death would have occurred in Hanover County, the place of his residence.

The first documented evidence of the residence of subject Thomas is that contained in the official 1704 Rent Roll Record, which shows the following Lacys owing land in New Kent County: Thomas Lacy -- 100 acres, William Lacy -- 500 acres, and Emmanuel Lacy -- 180 acres.

Thomas must have purchased his land as no land grant record has been found. If he had paid his own way to America he would have received a headright of 50 acres and that would have been recorded in "Virginia Land Grants". Some information has been secured from the Vestry Book of St. Paul's Parish, which was located in that part of New Kent County cut off in 1720/1 into Hanover. In the Vestry Book covering the period from 1706 to 1766 the following references are found:

"Returns made to the Vestry of St. Paul's Parish, March 4, 1708/9, from the surveyor of the 39 Precincts that the said Parish was divided into for the Processioning of Lands by an order of the said Parish Vestry held Sept. 24, 1708/9, are here according to Law and an order of the said Vestry made on the said 14th of March, Registered Verbatim."

"No. 18. The lands of Haughton House, Thomas Lacy, Jeremiah Dumas , Robert Depriest, William England, Rice Hughes, William Stephens, John Hickman, John McCoy, lying adjacent to each other, being made one precinct, of which the said William England Haughton House were appointed overseers, who made this return on the Back of the Order (viz;) this order is executed, only one line with Rice Hughes did not appear.

Subscribed: William England

Haughton House"

 

"No. 20. Thomas Lacy and Thomas Graham were appointed overseers in the Processioning of lands in St. Paul's Parish, Sept. 17, 1711. Among these lands was that of Emmanuel Richardson."

These two records would certainly apply to Thomas Lacy I, but subsequent ones may refer to the second generation and in the one instance -- that of Thomas Lacy, Jr. -- to the third generation.

"No. 22. Ordered into one Precinct for Processioning ye lands of Jeremiah Dumas, Thomas Prosser, James Wood, Col. Curtis, Mr. Brooks, James Rice, William Crossley, Thomas Lacy, Thomas Lacy, Jr., James Whitlock, Col. Thompson, Olivers, Nathaniel Hodgeskeson, James Hunt, ye Hughs, James Allen, George Straughan, David Tyree, James Anthony, and ye Carr's Lands, James Whitlock and James Allen to see the said processioning performed, who made the following return, viz: In Obedience to the within order, we the Subscribers has seen all the lands within mentioned procession'd except the land of George Straughan and Ellis, which nobody appeared for.

March ye 28th, 1732 James Allen

James Whitlock."

 

"No. 38. The Lands of Thomas Lacy, James Whitlock and Thomas Graham lying adjacent to each other, being made on Precinct, of which the said Thomas Lacy and James Whitlock were appointed overseers, who made this return on the Back of the order, viz: the within order complied with ... us.

Subscribed: Thomas Lacy James Whitlock"

 

Of a later date -- 1743 -- an entry shows for the first time the name of Stephen Lacy.

"At a Vestry held in St. Paul's Parish, Oct 18, 1743. No. 7. Ordered into one precinct for processioning the Lands of Thomas Johnson, Benjamin Johnson, Thomas Grant, John Price, John Williamson, Thomas Harlow, Charles Anderson, and that John Williamson and William Allen see the said processioning performed, who made the following report, -- we whose names are mentioned in ye within Order have met accordingly and none agreed & sent.

Thomas Grant, Stephen Lacy, Benjamin Johnson, Charles Anderson,

Thomas Harlow, Richard Allen John Williamson, William Allen"

 

[N.B. "Processioning" of lands was necessary in order to re-establish boundary lines between adjoining owners due to the destruction or removal of land marks which consisted in many cases of scrub oak or other trees, stones and creeks -- the latter often changing courses. Disputes would develop between property owners and the authority to adjudicate these matters was granted by the Council to the various parish vestrys of the Established Church.]

There is no evidence that subject Thomas Lacy lived anywhere except New Kent County, in that part which became Hanover County. He was already in Virginia when Oliver de la Muce arrived in 1700 with three ships of Huguenots. There is also no evidence that his son, Thomas, who married Ann Burnley, lived any place other than Hanover County. We know that Thomas Lacy's grandsons moved to Manikintowne and lived among the French Huguenots in Goochland County and the name of Lacy is included among the settlers of Manikintowne. This list appears to be about 1750. The parish serving Manikintowne was old King William and later St. James Northam.

We have record of one son, Thomas Lacy II, born to Thomas Lacy I and his wife, Miss Rice (Rhuys in Welsh) whose name may have been Phebe. There were most likely other children but we have no knowledge of them. There is a record of a Julian Lacy in Hanover County towards the latter part of the 18th Century who may derive from an unknown branch of the family.
