In her letter dated January 26, 1988, Kathi Abendroth 
enclosed family group sheets prepared by Mary Dent which stated 
that Elizabeth (Judkins) Burt was a daughter of 1798 Jacob 

Judkins of Surry County and Sarah ( ) Judkins, married 

Edward Burt on July 14, 1796, and that they had the following 
children: 

1) Polly Burt, 

2) Patsy Burt, and 

3) William Burt . 

However, in her letter dated January 29, 1995, Norma J. 
Pennington stated that either Susanna Judkins or Mary Judkins 

could have married a Burt and died before Sarah 

( ) Judkins, thereby generating the four Burt 

grandchildren mentioned in Sarah ( ) Judkins' will. The 

reason for this possibility is that Jacob Judkins had a son 

Joseph Judkins who was born before Sarah ( ) Judkins wrote 

her will and was not mentioned in that will, suggesting that the 
Burt grandchildren mentioned were children of a deceased child 
and not children of a living child. Elizabeth (Judkins) Burt was 

mentioned in Sarah ( ) Judkins' will, thus suggesting that 

the Burt grandchildren were not hers. Further research will be 
required to confirm the identity of these Burt grandchildren.

The identification of her brothers John C. Judkins, William 
Judkins, and Jacob Judkins identify this Lucy Judkins as the 
daughter of 1798 Jacob Judkins of Surry County and Sarah 

( ) Judkins. 

In her letter dated January 26, 1988, Kathi Abendroth 
enclosed family group sheets prepared by Mary Dent which stated 
that Lucy (Judkins) Logan was a daughter of 1798 Jacob Judkins of 

Surry County and Sarah ( ) Judkins and married James Logan 

on November 11, 1805. However, since Lucy was named as Judkins 

and not Logan in the will of Sarah ( ) Judkins written in 

1820, fifteen years after the 1805 marriage date, it seems 
unlikely that the Lucy Judkins who married James Logan was the 

daughter of 1798 Jacob Judkins and Sarah ( ) Judkins. In 

addition, the marriage bond of Lucy Judkins and James Logan 
listed her as the daughter of John Judkins, not Jacob Judkins.

In her letter dated June 29, 1987, Norma J. Pennington 
enclosed family group sheets which stated that in 1762 at Surry 
County, Virginia, Orphans Accounts Book 1762-83/12 Jesse Judkins 
was appointed guardian for Thomas Judkins. 

In The Judkins Journal , Vol. 6/3, Mrs. Norma Pennington 

stated as follows: 

" Thomas Judkins An Account is filed for Thomas by Jessee 
Judkins, his guardian from August 1762-15 September 1767. 
In 1767 John Andrews was paid cash "to learn him a trade." 
Further research of John Andrews may disclose this trade." 

In The Judkins Journal , Vol. 7/1, Mrs. Norma Pennington 
stated that Thomas Judkins was a witness to a deed dated 1778 and 
recorded at Bute County, North Carolina, D.B. 2/265. 

There is a marriage bond of Thomas Judkins and Dolly Price 
dated on December 27, 1796, at Surry County, Virginia, with

Reverend Nathaniel Berriman, a Methodist minister: 

"December 27th Day

Teste 

John Faulcon DCSC" 

However, based on the information set forth below, this was 

probably not a marriage of Thomas Judkins, the son of 1760 

William Judkins of Surry County. 

In The Judkins Journal , Vol. 7/1, Mrs. Norma Pennington 

stated that in 1820 at Warren County, North Carolina, 



Book 22/266, Thomas Judkins was granted a license to keep a 
tavern in his house and that on September 11, 1825, at Warren 
County, North Carolina, D.B. 25/353 Lavina Judkins, widow of 
Thomas Judkins, and his two sons James W. Judkins and Thomas J. 
Judkins sold 550 acres of land on Little Fishing Creek to John 



0345(090900) 150 



Surges of Halifax County, North Carolina. Mrs. Pennington also 

stated that : 

"Lavina wrote her will 2 December 1825, leaving the 
following bequests, "First I give and bequeath to Thos . J. 
Judkins my dearly beloved son, the sum of one hundred cents, 
to be raised and levied out of my estate . . also, I give to 
my well beloved son Jas . W. Judkins whom I likewise 
constitute, make and ordain the sole executor of this my 
last will and Testement, all my property arising from the 
Estate (of my husband) Thomas Judkins deed. Also one bond 
for Seven hundred dollars, Executed to me by said Jas. W. 
Judkins by him freely to be possessed and enjoyed." 

It certainly appears James was the favored son, but perhaps 
Thomas received a large inheritance from his father. 

We have no record of the events that occurred between the 
day Lavina wrote her will and 2 8 Nov 182 6, but on that day 
Thomas J. Judkins, not James W. Judkins, appeared at court 
and posted a bond as administrator with the will annexed of 
the estate of Lavina Judkins. there appears to be no 
further record of James W. Judkins in Warren County. Did he 
die between 2 Dec 1825 and 28 Nov. 1826, or did he join the 
movement west or south in search of cheap and fertile land? 
Thomas J. stayed in Warren County. Records show he married 
Rebecca Ingram (d/o Benjamin Ingram annd Letteuce Perry) of 
Franklin Co., N.C., 22 Jan. 1824. 



There is a portion of Warren County, North Carolina deep in 
tobacco country southeast of Warrenton, known as JUDKINS 
DISTRICT. A 1931 map of the country, which can be purchased 
at the courthouse, is illustrated with sketches of 
historical places. It shows the Thomas Judkins house, a 
large one and a half storied building with massive chimneys 
on either end, and lists c. 1800 as the time of 
construction. " 

In her letter dated January 26, 1988, Kathi Abendroth 

enclosed family group sheets prepared by Mary Dent which stated 

that Thomas Judkins was a son of 1760 William Judkins of Surry 

County and married Dolly Price on January 3, 1797, but given the 



0345(090900) 



151. 



presence of Thomas Judkins in North Carolina in 1778 and the 
identification of his widow as Lavina, it seems unlikely that 
Thomas Judkins, son of 1760 William Judkins, was the Thomas 
Judkins who married Dolly Price. 

(I) James W. Judkins 

James W. Judkins was a son of 

Thomas Judkins and Lavina ( ) Judkins. (1672 Samuel-^, 

1705 Samuel^ 1760 John^ 1760 William^ Thomas^) 

In The Judkins Journal , Vol. 7/1, Mrs. Norma Pennington 
stated that in 1820 at Warren County, North Carolina, 



Book 22/266, Thomas Judkins was granted a license to keep a 

tavern in his house and that on September 11, 1825, at Warren 

County, North Carolina, D.B. 25/353 Lavina Judkins, widow of 

Thomas Judkins, and his two sons James W. Judkins and Thomas J. 

Judkins sold 550 acres of land on Little Fishing Creek to John 

Burges of Halifax County, North Carolina. Mrs. Pennington also 

stated that : 

"Lavina wrote her will 2 December 1825, leaving the 
following bequests, "First I give and bequeath to Thos . J. 
Judkins my dearly beloved son, the sum of one hundred cents,

for Seven hundred dollars. Executed to me by said Jas. W. 
Judkins by him freely to be possessed and enjoyed." 

It certainly appears James was the favored son, but perhaps 
Thomas received a large inheritance from his father. 



0345(090900) 152 



We have no record of the events that occurred between the 
day Lavina wrote her will and 28 Nov 182 6, but on that day- 
Thomas J. Judkins, not James W. Judkins, appeared at court 
and posted a bond as administrator with the will annexed of 
the estate of Lavina Judkins . there appears to be no 
further record of James W. Judkins in Warren County. Did he

Thomas J. stayed in Warren County. Records show he married 
Rebecca Ingram (d/o Benjamin Ingram annd Letteuce Perry) of 
Franklin Co., N.C., 22 Jan. 1824 . . . ." 

(II) 1866 Thomas J. Judkins And His Wife 

Rebecca (Ingram) Judkins 

1866 Thomas J. Judkins was a son of 

Thomas Judkins and Lavina ( ) Judkins. (1672 Samuel-"-, 

1705 Samuel^ 1760 John^ 1760 William*, Thomas^) 

In The Judkins Journal , Vol. 7/1, Mrs. Norma Pennington 

stated that in 1820 at Warren County, North Carolina, 

Book 22/266, Thomas Judkins was granted a license to keep a 

tavern in his house and that on September 11, 1825, at Warren 

County, North Carolina, D.B. 25/353 Lavina Judkins, widow of 

Thomas Judkins, and his two sons James W. Judkins and Thomas J. 

Judkins sold 550 acres of land on Little Fishing Creek to John 

Burges of Halifax County, North Carolina. Mrs. Pennington also 

stated that: 

"Lavina wrote her will 2 December 1825, leaving the 
following bequests, "First I give and bequeath to Thos . J. 
Judkins my dearly beloved son, the sum of one hundred cents, 
to be raised and levied out of my estate . . also, I give to

0345(090900) 



153 



for Seven hundred dollars, Executed to me by said Jas . W. 
Judkins by him freely to be possessed and enjoyed." 

It certainly appears James was the favored son, but perhaps 
Thomas received a large inheritance from his father. 

We have no record of the events that occurred between the 
day Lavina wrote her will and 28 Nov 1826, but on that day 
Thomas J. Judkins, not James W. Judkins, appeared at court 
and posted a bond as administrator with the will annexed of 
the estate of Lavina Judkins . there appears to be no

Rebecca Ingram (d/o Benjamin Ingram annd Letteuce Perry) of 
Franklin Co., N.C., 22 Jan. 1824 . . . ." 

In The Judkins Journal , Vol. 7/1, Mrs. Norma Pennington 

stated that : 

"At the courthouse in Warrenton is a notebook of cemetery 
records showing the following in Judkins District:

iii . Jordan Judkins And His Wife Sarah 

"Sally" (Warren) Judkins 

Jordan Judkins was a son of 1760 William 

Judkins of Surry County and Rebeccah ( ) Judkins. (1672 

Samuels 1705 SamuelS 1760 John\ 1760 William*) 

The Black Water Monthly Meeting Records, Surry County, 

Virginia, listed the birth of Sarah Warren, daughter of Samuel 

Warren, Sr., and Hannah (Inman) Warren, on October 26, 1760. 

The will of William Judkins dated on December 10, 1760, and 

probated on December 16, 1760, at Surry County, Virginia, D. & 

W.B. 10/238 listed Jordan Judkins as one of his children: 

". . . . Item: I Give & Bequeath to my Two sons Jordan 
Judkins and Mark Judkins the Land that I purchased of Anslem 
Bailey and the Land I purchased of John Hawkins lying in 
Granvill County in No. Carolina to be equally Divided 
Between them & their Heirs forever. ..." 

In The Judkins Journal , Vol. 6/3, Mrs. Norma Pennington 

stated as follows: 

" Jordan Judkins In Surry County Order Book 1764-74, p. 267 
17 September 1771 - Jordan Judkins made choice of Samuel 
Judkins for his guardian. This would indicate Jordan had 
reached the age of 14 at which time he could choose his own 
guardian. In the orphan's account for 1772 Jordan is 
provided a horse which costs 18 pounds and also a saddle and 
bridle. At a court held for Surry Co., 22 August 1775, 
Jordan came into court, most likely riding that same horse, 
and acknowledged to have received full satisfaction of his 
late guardian, Samuel Judkins, indicating that he had come 
of age . " 

In her letter dated June 29, 1987, Norma J. Pennington 

enclosed family group sheets which stated that Jordan Judkins was 



0345(090900) 



155 



born about 1757, and on September 17, 1771, at Surry County, 

Virginia, Court Order Book IIG^-IA:/ he chose Samuel Judkins as 

his guardian, and that Jordan Judkins moved to Seacock Swamp, 

Sussex County, Virginia. 

The marriage bond of Jordan Judkins and Sally Warren, 

daughter of Samuel Warren was dated on October 6, 1783, at Surry 

County, Virginia, with Mark Judkins as surety and Thomas Sprately 

as a witness: 

"Know all Men by these Presents That We Jordan Judkins and 
Mark Judkins are held and firmly bound unto his Excellency

given the Infants after they shall respectively arrive to

borne by the parties." 

This record confirms that Jordan Judkins married Sarah "Sally" 

Warren. 

In her letter dated January 26, 1988, Kathi Abendroth 

enclosed family group sheets prepared by Mary Dent which stated 

that Jordan Judkins was a son of 1760 William Judkins of Surry

one hundred pounds Virginia currency, and pay the same to 

Joseph Bryant Judkins provided he shall attain to the age of 

twenty five years, otherwise the said Rebecca shall be 

entitled to it under the reservations before mentioned 
II 

The identification of Joseph Bryant Judkins as a grandson 
and John E. Evans as a deceased son and the condition that Joseph 
Bryant not institute suit for Isaac who was lent to John E. Evans 
indicates that Joseph Bryant Judkins was a son of John Evans 
Judkins and the identification of Rebecca Judkins as Joseph 
Bryant Judkins' half-sister identifies them both as children of 
John Evans Judkins .

In her letter dated January 29, 1995, Norma J. Pennington 

stated that John Evans Judkins married Rebecca and left

" . . . .At the decease of my said daughter Charity, I give 
and bequeath the property of every kind and denomination

7. I desire that my daughter Charity do pay unto my grand

This record clearly identifies the family of 1803 William Judkins 

of Iredell County, North Carolina, as follows: 

Wife: Lucy ( ) Judkins 

Children: 1) (Judkins) Moorman, wife of Thomas 

Moorman, 

2) David Judkins, 

3) Joel Judkins, 

4) (Judkins) Francis, wife of John 

Francis , 

5) John Judkins, 

6) (Judkins) Richardson, wife of Samuel 

Richardson, and 

7) (Judkins) Terrell, wife of Henry 

Terrell .

The listing of Lucy Judkins, Joel Judkins, David Judkins, and 
Henry Terrell as legatees of 1803 William Judkins of Iredell 
County, North Carolina, ties this William Judkins with the 

William Judkins whose wife was Lucy ( ) Judkins and whose 

sons Joel and David appeared in the Campbell County, Virginia, 
Personal Property Tax Lists, and whose daughter Charity married 
Henry Terrell in Campbell County, Virginia, in 1797. The 
listing of Thomas Moorman as a legatee was probably a mistake of 
omission. As set forth above, William Judkins' daughter Rebecca 
married Thomas Moorman Terrell and the partition of William 
Wright's land which listed Thomas Moorman probably inadvertantly 
left off the Terrell.

In her letter dated February 14, 1995, Norman J. Pennington 
enclosed an excerpt from "Mark Twain's Virginia Kin", by- 
Charles O. Paullin, Genealogies of Virginia Families , Volume I, 
which stated that : 

"On October 21, 1854, Jane and Orion Clemens, Pamela Clemens 
Moffett, and William A. Moffett sold their holdings in Mason 
County. They are, respectively, the mother, brother, 
sister, and brother-in-law of Twain .... It was in 1805, 
or the following year, that Pamela's first cousins, Thomas 
and John Hope Moorman, of Campbell County, Va., when on a 
trip to Ohio, paid her a visit. Their journal records that 
from Point Pleasant, the county seat of Mason County, they 
went 'up the Ohio River six miles to Cousin Parmela Clemens 
and rested there two nights and one day' (Tyler's Quarterly 
Historical and Genealogical Magazine, VII, 87) ." 

These records indicate that the Thomas Moorman Terrell who 

married Rebeckah Judkins was probably the same person as Thomas 

Moorman of the Division and Allotment of the land of 1803 William 

Judkins and the Thomas Moorman of Campbell County who visited 

Pamela Clemens in 1805 or 1806. Further research will be 

required to ascertain why he would have changed his name by 

dropping the Terrell .

In America Since 1607 included the following statement by 

James Judkins of Mt . Pleasant, Ohio, dated in 1820: 

"I have understood that my great grandfather and one of his 
brothers came from some part of England or Wales to America 
some 130 or 140 years ago, about 1680, and settled near the 
line between Sussex and Surry counties in the State of Va 
and upon Black Water River. I think his name was John 
Judkins. My grandfather, whose name was Robert Judkins, 
lived and died there. I never saw him, though I have been 
there while grandmother lived. My father Nicholas Judkins 
was born in the year 1724. After he became man's age, he 
worked considerably about being a carpenter by trade. About 
the 30th year of his age he married Mary Anderson, daughter 
of Carolus Anderson. Whether Carolus Anderson was from 
Scotland or whether he had parents in America, I have not 
learned, having never heard of any other of the family in 
this country. I think there was none. My mother had two 
sisters, and one brother who died young in life. One of my 
aunts removed about the year 1770 to New River, Onslow 
county, in the State of NC where I expect these Edwards are 
living still, or their descendants are. A few years after, 
my uncle Warren moved to Burke County on the Ogeeche River 
in the state of Georgia, except my aunt who died on the way. 
As I said, my father married Mary Anderson, I suppose about 



0345 (090900) 



361 



the year 1755 and settled on the Maheron river in 
Northampton county in the state of NC. They had two 
children Robert and Sarah who both died before I was born. 
After they were married, notwithstanding they lived remote 
from Friends meeting, yet they became convinced of the 
principles of Friends and lived and died respectable members 
of the Friends society. My parents had eight children, the 
two above named and John, Jesse, Myself, Joel, Faith and 
Carolus . My two brothers John and Jesse died about their 
22nd year of age. My father died on the 2 5th day of the 3rd 
month, 1783, and mother died the 29th day of the 12th month, 
1789, each of them about sixty years of age, and were buried 
in the old burying-ground where Grandfather Anderson and 
family were buried. My father never enjoyed good health 
much of his time while I knew him. It was different with my 
mother, who enjoyed good health generally, as the climate of 
her birth place agreed well with her. I was born, according 
to accounts, on the 8th day of the fourth month, 1760, and 
lived fourteen years with my parents, during which time I 
had but little good health. I had the fever and ague 
considerable of the time. After this time, I went to a 
trade (Hatting) with Sampson Stanton, in Southampton County, 
Virginia - a very healthful place. At this time I was a 
very curious looking person. I was very poor, my neck veins 
large, and a large chest. I continued so the best part of a 
year, after which I became more healthy; the ague cake in my 
side quite disappeared. 

While I was an apprentice, I became acquainted with your 
mother, about nine or ten years old. She was living with 
her grandfather on the same plantation; we were sometimes 
playmates. After serving out my apprenticeship, I returned 
home and set up for myself. On the 19th day of the 10th 
month, 1783, I was married to Martha Stanton, her mother 
having been dead nearly eighteen years. My wife's mother's 
maiden name was Thweart , of a respectable family in 
Virginia. Our children were seven in number, viz: John, 
Mary, William, James, Stanton, Anderson and Martha Judkins, 
all of whom I have raised, educated and lived to see 
married. Your mother, from my first acquaintance with her, 
enjoyed very good health, and for a few years before her 
death she became quite fleshy, so much so that she could not 
wear some of her clothes which she had a year or two back. 
She was of a very industrious and saving disposition. In 
the winter of 1797, in the time of a very deep snow, she was 
out where we were taking care of some lambs, and took a 
severe cold, which continued to increase as long as she 
lived, having settled in consumption. I had all done that 



0345 (090900) 



362 



could be done, without moving the complaint. (My mother was 
of a Strumous diathasis, WJ) . On the night of the 8th day 
of the 10th month, 1799, in the evening she was where the 
girls were milking the cows in the yard, giving some 
directions about her business, after which she came in - I 
thought as well as she had been for some time past. I went 
out where we had some corn to husk in the field, and there 
had a number of negroes collected for that purpose. They 
were very noisy, as in common there. We got done about ten 
o'clock at night. I went to the house alone, there being no 
white person but myself there. She would have me eat 
something, after which I went to bed, and she put Martha, 
the babe, by me. The family went up to bed, and she soon 
got ready and came and lay down, but directly took a violent 
cough - I thought more than common. She spoke to me, I rose 
up; the cough continued, with a discharge of blood so 
profuse as to come very near strangling her, which 
continued, say a minute or two. I think she discharged a 
pint at least of blood. After it subsided, she was very 
much exhausted. I did not think it safe to leave her that 
night; she needed my attention throughout the night, though 
never after discharged as much blood at a time. She was 
never able to be about after this night. She was very 
sensible of her approaching dissolution, and gave me some 
very tender and affectionate advice, and was resigned to her 
fate. She continued to grow weaker every day, until about 
six o'clock in the evening of the 14th, found she was going. 
I left the room - she called me. I stepped to her bedside; 
she raised up and took my hand, expressed some tender 
sentiments, and quietly passed away. She was born on the 
22nd day of the 2nd month, 1765. We were married on the 
19th day of the 10th month, 1783, and she departed this life 
on the 14th day of the 10th month, 1799, aged 34 years, 7 
months, and 8 days. She was buried in Friends' Burying 
Ground at Richsquare, in Northampton County, North Carolina. 



Being left alone with a family of little children, I found I 
must either break up housekeeping or get some help to raise 
them, and being acquainted for a considerable time with the 
family of Jacob Parker on Bear Swamp near Richsquare 
meeting. I married his daughter Abigail on the 21st day of 
the 1st month, 1801. She was born the 22nd day of the 2nd 
month 1776, just eleven years younger than your mother, and 
who, after meriting the name of an affectionate wife, a good 
step-mother, etc. departed this life the 1st day of the 8th 
month, 1821, aged 45 years, 5 months and 9 days, leaving me 
five children, viz: Sarah, Anna, Robert, Jesse and Parker 



0345(090900)

Judkins, and I am yet spared to experience more of the cares 
and trials incident to our nature. What is to become of me 
and my charge I cannot see, though I have the consolation to 
think that after raising so many children, they, while young 
and able, will pay all necessary attention. I removed from 
Meherin River in the year 1800 to near Richsquare meeting, 
and in the spring of 1806 came here.

the following children: 

1) Robert Judkins, 

2) Sarah Judkins, 

3 ) John Judkins ,

1761 Robert Judkins of Sussex County and his wife Faith

( ) Judkins . That conclusion was based on the following 

arguments . 

First, James Judkins was unsure of the name of his great 
grandfather and thought it was John Judkins. However, no records 
have yet been found of a John Judkins in Surry County in the 
1680 's. The only family found so far is that of 1672 Samuel 
Judkins of Surry County and his sons 17 05 Samuel Judkins of Surry 
County, 1693 Robert Judkins of Surry County, and 1710 Charles of 
Surry County. The uncertainty of James Judkins' identification 
of his great grandfather makes possible that it was 1693 Robert 
Judkins of Surry County rather than John Judkins . 

Second, James Judkins identified his grandfather as Robert 
Judkins and that he died near the Blackwater River in Surry 
County and that he never saw his grandfather. James Judkins was 
born on May 8, 1760, and 1761 Robert Judkins died in 1761 in 
Sussex County, Virginia, which is consistent with James Judkins' 
story. James Judkins also stated that he was there when his 

grandmother lived. Faith ( ) Judkins apparently survived 

her husband, which would be consistent with James Judkins' story. 

Third, James Judkins was apprenticed at age 14 to Sampson 
Stanton. Mrs. Pennington identified that Sampson Stanton as the 
son of James Stanton and grandson of James Stanton, who in turn 

was the second husband of Elizabeth ( ) (Judkins) Stanton, 

the widow of 1693 Robert Judkins of Surry County.

"Flushing Newspaper account of the "Death of J. P. Judkins": 

The death of J. P. Judkins, one of the oldest citizens of 
Flushing, occurred at his home last Tuesday morning, August 
the second, 1898. 

After many months of suffering from the infirmities of age, 
the weary body has lain down to rest, the spirit has 
returned to Him who gave it, and a home is broken up and 
left desolate. 

Father Judkins came to this place in 1849 and although he 
has been for several years unable to take part in the active 
pursuits of life, he was for many years previous, engaged in 
the mercantile business. He was also postmaster for a 
number of years. He was honest and upright in his dealings 
with his fellow man, generous and social and had many 
friends, the majority of whom preceded him into the Unknown. 

Jonathan P. Judkins was born in Mount Pleasant, Ohio, 
October 23rd, 1813. He was married in 1841 to Elizabeth 
Elliott, with whom he lived for fifty-five years. To them 
were born four children, two of whom, with his wife, are 



0345(090900)

deceased. One son, J. E. Judkins, of Flushing, and a 
daughter, Mary, at home, are still living. Although feeling 
the affliction of a weakened body, he was ever a cheerful 
and pleasant companion, and until within a few years, was 
more like a man of sixty than of four score. His had been 
an active, useful life and many are the changes that he has 
seen wrought in this community. He was of Quaker parentage 
but became a member of the M.E. Church and during his life 
was one of its most liberal supporters."

Sitting 

Humbly complaining shew unto your worships your orators and 
oratrixes, John Judkins, Frederick Judkins, Patsey Judkins, 
& Fanny B. Judkins, which said Frederick, Patsey and Fanny 
are infants under the age of twenty one years by the said 
John Judkins their next friend. That Charles Judkins late of 
this county departed this life intestate on the 6th March 
1803, seized of certain lands in this county and possessed 
of many slaves, and a valuable personal estate. The said 
intestate left five children, to wit your orators and 
oratrixes, and their sister Sally who intermarried with 
Edward Pennington, who in due form of law obtained from this 
court administration of the said estate. That the intestate 
left no widow. That the said intestate owed some debts to 
what amount has not yet been ascertained. That the said 
intestate by way of advancement in his lifetime gave and 
delivered to his son your orator John a mare of the value of 
about Thirty pounds, and also gave and delivered to the said 
Edward Pennington and Sally his wife one negro woman called 
Anaky and two children one called Moggy, and the other 
Douglas, and the said Anaky after the advancement made and 
while in the possession of the said Pennington had two other 
children, one called Sam and the other called Andrew, and 
also gave and delivered to the said Pennington one black 
mare of the value of Thirty pounds, and one feather bed and 
furniture. That the parties aforesaid are willing to divide 
the said Lands, and as many of the slaves as can with 
propriety be divided, leaving a fund sufficient in the hands 
of the said administrator to pay the debts and expenses of 
administration. In tender consideration whereof your 
orators and oratrixes pray the aid of this court in equity. 
To the end therefore that the said Edward Pennington, and 
Sally his wife as defendants to this bill may truly answer 
the premises and that your worships will be pleased to 
decree and order that the said lands may be equally divided 
between the heirs aforesaid, that the advancements aforesaid 
may be brought into Hotchpot . That the said defendant the 
administrator may shew statement of the debts due by the 
intestate and the assets in his hands. That the said slaves 
may be equally divided amongst the parties aforesaid, if 



0345(090900) 434 



there be other funds sufficient to pay the debts. And that 
your worships will be pleased to grant such other and 
further relief in the premises as equity dictates and as to 
your worships shall seem just and meet. May it please your 
worships the premises considered ScC . to grant the 
Commonwealth's writ of subpoena &c . 



The joint and several answer of Edward Pennington 
administrator of Charles Judkins deceased, and of the said 
Edward Pennington and Sally, his wife, to the bill of 
complaint exhibited against them in the court of Sussex 
County, by John Judkins and others, complainants. 

These defendants saving and reserving to themselves all 
benefit of exceptions, etc. to the said bill for answer say 
That they have the same interest in the estate mentioned in 
the bill as the complainants. And the said defendant Edward 
Pennington saith, that there are debts owing by his 
intestate, to which amount he cannot now state, and he has 
not had time to ascertain the amount, it being only a few 
months since this defendant qualified as the administrator, 
Whether the mere perishable personal estate will be 
sufficient to answer the demands against the intestate, and 
the charges and expenses of the administration, this 
defendant cannot now say. That this defendant humbly 
conceives that in his present situation with respect to the 
affairs of the intestate, it would be unsafe for him to 
permit a division of all the slaves, without leaving in his 
hands a proportion of them to answer demands which may 
appear and which this defendant cannot probably ascertain in 
a short time. That the small advancement received by this 
defendant he is willing to bring into Hotchpot. These 
defendants pray to be hence dismissed, &c .
