1862 Map of Caroline County, Virginia, w/ Old Stage Road
Bowling Green is in the upper left corner. The road in bold red is the main Stage Road to Williamsburg. The first lighter red road turning east at the Childs residence toward Maracossic Creek shows a Eubank residence along the way. From a study of Eubank and other early surname references from sources such as the order books, wills, pension applications, census, and histories, this Eubank residence is likely John and Margaret Newman Eubank's residence. It is the road mentioned in Col. John Baylor's will as being "the road opposite my home house." The 1860 U.S. Census, Caroline County, shows a James Eubank resided at Res. 842 in Bowling Green district. The same census shows a Thomas Eubank residing at Residence 822 in neighboring Sparta district to the south in Caroline.
I acknowledge the research work of several family genealogists whose work has been an important resource in this extensive narrative and research project to determine relationships of this Eubank family. - Iris Wagner
MARGARET JACQUELINE MOORE of Jackson, Mississippi. From family, state, county, and church archives, "Jac" compiled a 19th century Eubank-Ware-Hunter-Allen history with charts and proof. Her work has been a strong foundation for further research in developing the genealogy of the Eubank family and associated families, in Hinds and Rankin Counties, Mississippi, and in Amherst and Caroline Counties. She was first cousin to my father, William A. Eubank.
MRS. H. TUCKER EUBANK (Sallie M. Eubank), of Amherst County, shared her time, and with sisters, Mrs. Evelyn Jeter and Mrs. Rebecca Davidson, her gracious hospitality. Mrs. Eubank's knowledge of the children of her great-great-grandfather George Eubank, born 1746, was a great help.
MAI EUBANK BOATWRIGHT of Mabank, Texas, some years ago corresponded and shared research with Jacqueline Moore. Mrs. Boatwright is a descendant of John Eubank's son Elias M. Eubank and wife Elizabeth W. Thompson. Elias and Elizabeth immigrated in the 1830's to Texas. Their grandson Thomas H. Eubank and business partner G. W. "Dodge" Mason were co-founders of Mabank, Texas.
CURTIS HUMPHRIS who lives in Virginia, and is a descendant of Elias's brother John Eubank and wife Catharine Rose, with trust and kindness, shared his research. Catherine was descended from the prominent Rev. Robert Rose of first, Tidewater Virginia, and later Amherst County.
The genealogical records of GEORGE MASON CLAIBORNE and NANNIE EUBANK CLAIBORNE of Amherst, through their daughter, NANNIE CLAIBORNE HUDSON in 1980, provided a direction back to Tidewater Virginia - Caroline County, King and Queen County and Essex County.
MARIANNE ELLISTON shared her excellent, detailed research of Ware families, and references to Eubank families, who lived in Clark County, Kentucky, in the late 18th and early 19th centuries.
ANN HUNTSMAN and PATRICK HAYS were key sources in the study of Margaret Newman's family, in both Virginia and Kentucky. Several of Margaret's brothers settled in old Jefferson County, Kentucky, and in the later partitioned counties.
John Eubank born c1720 - 1778
and Mary Bullard
Caroline County, Virginia
by Iris Teta Eubank Wagner
This 18th century genealogy begins with the earliest documented Eubank references found in Tidewater Virginia - the 1704 Quit Rent Roll, and several early 18th century items of reference. Eubank entries from the Caroline County Order Books is a separate link.
Documents are referenced to develop a theory to possible connections of Eubank individuals in King and Queen, Essex, and Caroline Counties. As this site is a work in progress, new details will be added as the narrative evolves.
18th Century Documented References to Eubank in Virginia
1704 Quit Rent Tax
One of the earliest 18th century sources for proof of residence for Virginia counties is the 1704 Quit Rent. There are two Quit Rent Tax payers named Eubank in Virginia in 1704 :
WILLIAM EUBANK owned 350 acres in King and Queen County in 1704. There is reason to think that William's land would have been located in the upper part of present King and Queen County, in the Maracossic Creek and Beverley Run areas, the Beverley Run being the boundary between Caroline and King & Queen.
All residents in the Virginia colony were required to pay the Quit Rents to the Crown, except residents in the Northern Neck, which were the several counties, Lancaster, Northumberland, Westmoreland, Richmond, and Stafford, that were owned by a proprietorship, and not subject for rents to the Crown.
Prior to 1699 the homestead laws allowed a settler 50 acres granted by the Crown, plus 50 acres to the settler's wife, and 50 acres to each of their children. As children were added to the family, the settler could add an additional 50 acres to his holdings. Using this guideline William may have had a family of at least five children in 1704.
HENRY EUBANK (indexed Ubanke or Hubanck) was taxed for 400 acres in Accomack County. This land at Occohannock (Onancock) Creek, by Whitelaw's account, had evidently come through James Bonwell, the deceased husband of Mary Bonwell (nee: Watson). Henry married the widow Bonwell on October 6, 1702 in Accomack County. This was most likely a later-life marriage for Henry, as it was a third marriage for Mary. Again from Whitelaw, it appears that Henry died about 1714, as this is the year that Mary's son John Bonwell felt unsure of his claim to the land, and took out a new patent for it. The estate of Mary Eubank (indexed Huebank) was presented for probate by John Wise on July 5, 1732 in Accomack County.
There is no other Eubank entry on the 1704 Quit Rent lists, and that would include all Virginia counties of the time, except those five counties in the Northern Neck.
1722 Fragment of a Deed - Austin to Jones - King William County
An item from Beverly Fleet, Virginia Colonial Abstracts, Vol 7, King William, p.57 -
1 April 1722. Tho. Austin of King and Queen Co., sells Jacob Jones and James Connor . . . .125 acres in King William County. (Signature burned away.) Witnesses: JOHN EUBANK, LEWIS DILLARD, Ellinor ? King, Margaret wife of sd Austin relinquishes dower rights. Recorded King William Co., 21 June 1722. . . . .
I think this is the Eubank ancestral line found in early order book and patent book references as residing in the parish of St. Margaret in Caroline, earlier King William County, living between the Reedy and Polecat Creeks. Later in the 18th century in the Caroline order books, Dillard names appear with Eubank names. Lewis Dillard proved the will of John Eubank in 1737.
1724 William Eubanck, 400 acres, King William County
WILLIAM EUBANCK, 400 acres (N.L.), King Wm. Co., in St. John Par.; on N. side of the Reedy Sw. of Mattapony River; on line of Thomas Cartwright & Elizabeth Boboes; 8 July 1724, p. 346. 40 Shill. Nell Marion Nugent, Cavaliers and Pioneers, Patent Book 11, p.262
This land lay in the parish of St. Margaret after Caroline County was created in 1727. St. Margaret was south of the Mattaponi in Caroline. Drysdale Parish was the area north of the Mattaponi, in both Caroline and upper King & Queen. The parish of St. Mary was in the more northeastern portion of Caroline.
From Nugent's Patent Book 11, neighbors of William Eubanck are Elizabeth Bobo(es), Thomas Cartwright, Thomas Floyd, ? Halcomb, John Watkins, Nicholas Gillintine, Thomas Carr, John Stones, John Harris, James Hurt, William Hurt, Mathew Harris, Richard Croshaw Walker, Capt. Philip Todd, and Timothy, Robert, and Joseph Chandler. The George and the Goodwin families appear in Caroline records to be close neighbors of William Eubank of St. Margaret's Parish. [June 10, 1748 Order].
1760 Reconstructed Census of Virginia
This census is based on primary records such as deeds, wills, tax lists, order books, etc. Eubank individuals who were listed in three books among the eighty-nine used for the census are:
JOHN EUBANK - Caroline County Order Book, 1759 - 1763. This is likely the John Eubank who married Mary Bullard, and lived in Drysdale Parish near Bowling Green.
WILLIAM EUBANK - Caroline Co. Order Book,1759 -1763.
RICHARD EUBANK- Vestry Book of Stratton-Major Parish, King & Queen County.
Road Orders of the 1760's in Caroline referring to John Eubank and his neighbors - Drysdale Parish.
Ivy Church in Drysdale Parish
T. E. Campbell's History of Caroline County
1759 May 11 EUSEBIUS STONE, Gent. is appointed overseer of the road from JOHN BAYLOR, ESQ. to the fork of the road by the Ivy Church and to have the following hands: Colo. Baylor home house and mill quarter, JNO. BOWIN, BEN GATEWOOD, JOS. BULLARD, JOHN WALDING quarter, WILLIAM BULLARD, ARMISTEAD's quarter, JOHN EUBANK and ABRAM WOOD.
July 10 - Ordered EUSEBIUS STONE have the following hands to assist him in keeping the road in repair, JOHN TAYLOR, JR., COLO. BAYLOR'S quarter, GEORGE PEAY [ Penn ?] and JOHN EUBANK.
1765 June 13 - Ordered that EUSEBIUS STONE do serve as overseer of the road from the bridge over Morocosick Creek near where the old Ivy Church stood to the old road opposite to COLO. BAYLOR's plantation and that he have besides his own hands those at COLO. BAYLOR'S HOME HOUSE, WILLIAM HARRISON's quarter, JOHN BOURN's, JOHN EUBANK, THOMAS GOODE and JOHN WILLIAMS to assist him in keeping the road in repair, which hands are discharged from working on any other road.
1767 May14 - JOHN EUBANK is appointed overseer of the road in the room of ( in place of ) EUSEBIUS STONE.
1770 Aug 9 - Ordered that RICHARD FLOYDE & JAMES GATEWOOD attend with their gangs do assist JOHN EUBANK in making a causeway at the Bridge near the Glebe. [ Refers certainly to the Glebe of the old Ivy Church near the bridge crossing Maracossic. The map above of Drysdale Parish shows the location of Ivy Church to be three miles northwest of Sparta, a location that conforms to the location in the road orders. ]
It is likely that the family named Eubank who lived along this road in 1862 would have a connection to John Eubank, Sr., of the road orders, above. The 1860 census lists in the Bowling Green Township, James Eubank, age 52 (born 1808) on page 681, residence 842. His occupation is chair maker. This James Eubank may be a son of Thomas Eubank, who lived in Drysdale Parish and signed a Religious Petition in 1808, and was administrator of the estate of Mary Eubank in 1795. Thomas is probably a younger brother to John Eubank, Jr. who married Margaret Newman and George Eubank who married Delilah Williams.
Map: New Market/Edmundsbury/Maracossic Creek - Caroline from David John Mays, Edmund Pendleton : 1721-1803, A Biography, page 34
Comparing the Bowling Green / Sparta Neighborhood and the 1860 Caroline census
Evidence from the road orders of the 1760's places John Eubank, Sr. and members of the Bullard family along the road that led to the old Ivy Church and the bridge across the Maracossic Creek. The 1862 map above (top) shows a road that would have likely followed approximately the same route, from Col. Baylor's "home house" to "the bridge over Maracossic Creek, near where the old Ivy Church stood." From an item in John Baylor's will, it is likely the name of the road was Pendleton Hill Road - "Beginning at the end of Pendleton Hill road opposite to my house . . . "
Edmund Pendleton's plantation Edmundsbury was adjacent to the Baylor land, Pendleton's evidently bordering at several points the Maracossic Creek.
Caroline County Road Orders prove that John Eubank, Sr. and family were close neighbors of John Baylor, most likely living on Pendleton Hill Road, "the road opposite my home house," as John Baylor described in his will. Modern maps produced by the Virginia Department of Transportation indicate this road as secondary road number 682, which has retained only 1.15 miles of its original length, which previously reached to Maracossic Creek. The road is now known as Beazley Lane. That their names appear close on the petition above indicates a close association.
Col. John Baylor of Caroline
New Market was Col. John Baylor's estate and plantation home in Caroline County, located three miles south of Bowling Green. It adjoined Edmund Pendleton's plantation Edmundsbury. Both Baylor and Pendleton were wealthy and prominent leaders, serving as Caroline representatives to the Virginia House of Burgesses. Baylor was a Burgess from 1742 until 1765. In 1765 in the House of Burgesses, Baylor opposed Patrick Henry's "resolves" and argued against the "treasonable" measures. The freeholders of Caroline were active politically, and because of Baylor's opposition to the "resolves," and through the influence of Baylor's opponents, voted Baylor out of office. The freeholders were also not happy about Baylor's influence in advising Virginia's then Governor Fauquier to send an outsider to the county as sheriff. Until then the sheriffs of Caroline had always been residents of the county. Gov. Fauquier appointed William Goode to be the new sheriff of Caroline. From order book entry of February 8, 1770, JOHN EUBANK and AMBROSE BULLARD are two of the men appointed to appraise the estate of William Goode. John Baylor was still living in 1770, and had been influential in getting William Goode appointed as sheriff. John Eubank and Ambrose Bullard were loyal to the interests of the Baylor estate, and to Col. John Baylor.
Baylor followed English traditions of the established Anglican Church. He and others in the county built an Episcopal Church about 1740-45. John Eubank likely contributed his share, he was Episcopalian, and later a vestryman in Lexington Parish in Amherst County. He would have been a true ally of Col. Baylor. Members of five subsequent generations of this Eubank lineage have held to the same Episcopalian tradition in Jackson, Mississippi.
Library of Congress - Voorhees Map 1755
The Baylor's of Walkerton, King & Queen County
Col. Baylor's father, John Baylor I, had built a fortune in King and Queen County as a planter and merchant near Walkerton. Col. Baylor's wife was Frances Walker of Walkerton.
1763 Will of William Fleet - St. Stephens Parish, King and Queen County
This is from Virginia Colonial Abstracts by Beverley Fleet, Vol. 14, King & Queen County (Williamsburg Wills, page 25).
William Fleet of St. Stephens Parish, King and Queen County. Dated 20 April 1763. Probated 11 October 1773.
Sons John and William. Land in Orange County to son Edwin. Daughters Mary Ann and Elizabeth. Grandmother Mrs. Eliz: Marriot. Friend Col. Humphrey Hill.
Wife Susanna. Exors. Brother Edwin Fleet, John Semple. Wit. Charles Mortimer, Arthur Hopes, George Eubank, Wm. Birch
John Semple was the husband of Elizabeth Walker, sister of Susanna Walker, William Fleet's wife. The Baylor family was well-established at Walkerton along the Mattaponi River in King and Queen County; and John Baylor was born there in 1705. He married Frances Walker, of the Walker family.
Not knowing the identity of John Eubank, Sr.'s father, GEORGE EUBANK is a possibility to consider. George is evidently of some association with the Fleet family, and probably, therefore the Baylor and Walker families. This connection and influence may have been the reason John Eubank c1720 - 1778 moved his family from Walkerton in King & Queen County, the Baylor's seat, to Caroline County near Col. John Baylor II at New Market.
Also mentioned as a witness to the Fleet will above is William Birch. In Caroline order book entry May 12, 1738, William Burch and Sarah his wife acknowledge their deeds of lease and release and bond indented to William Eubank. William Eubank may have been Sarah's father. The William Birch of the Fleet will may be a son of William Birch and his wife Sarah. May be a connection of William Eubank, Sarah (Eubank) and William Burch in 1738, and George Eubank and William Birch in 1763. George Eubank and Sarah Eubank may have been children of William Eubank
George Eubank must have had status by the fact he was one of the witnesses to the Will of William Fleet, and the fact that the Fleet family lived in St. Stephens Parish, in my mind connects George to Richard Eubank, who lived in 1760 in Stratton Major Parish, as per the 1760 Reconstructed Census of Virginia. Even today it is difficult to determine boundaries between Stratton Major and St. Stephens Parishes. William Eubank and Richard Eubank may have been brothers.
Col. John Baylor II Breeder of Fine Horses
Col. Baylor's passion was in breeding and importing fine horses and bought the Caroline tract in 1726. His stables were famous throughout Virginia, and in England, as having the finest horses in the colony. At the time of Col. Baylor's death in 1772 his stables contained nearly 100 horses. There would have had to be a large contingent of employees to care for so many valuable thoroughbreds.
Sallie Eubank (Mrs. Tucker Eubank) related the main characteristics of her Eubank family from their first settlement in Amherst as, " having a love of horses and family. . . " An 1800 tax taken in Lexington Parish, Amherst County, shows John is taxed for six horses and one stud horse. George is taxed for six horses. A stud horse being valuable property, an owner would want to have some expertise and skill in the care of the valuable horse.
Caroline County Religious Petitions, Land Tax Books, and Order Books
In the absence of deeds, wills, and other legal records that may have given specific relationships between 18th century Eubank families in Caroline, the Early Virginia Religious Petitions, the Land Tax Books, and the Order Books are useful in providing clues.
Early Virginia Religious Petition October 15, 1779, Endorsing the Division of Drysdale Parish
Drysdale was a long parish, reaching from the Spotsylvania border on the north in Caroline, down into the upper part of King and Queen County.
The names of the signers who were in favor of the parish division appear to have lived in the Bowling Green area and northward. On October 15, 1779, JOHN EUBANK and his brother GEORGE EUBANK (sons of John Eubank and Mary Bullard) signed the above petition Endorsing Division of their home parish, Drysdale. John Eubank's signature appears next to James Jarrell and that of Mark Beazley, Mungo Roy and William Buckner. The column continues with the signatures of Thomas White, Jonah Allen, Francis Chandler, John Ironmonger, Elizabeth Irion (?), Kenah Leongal (?). Next in the column is the signature of George Eubank, followed immediately by the several signatures of COL. JOHN BAYLOR'S FAMILY. The Colonel had died at New Market in April, 1772, and here are the signatures of his son John Baylor IV (b 1750), son George Baylor, their mother Mrs. F. Baylor, daughters Frances Baylor and Courtenay Baylor. Son Walker Baylor signed this petition on another column of signatures endorsing the division.
Library of Congress Voorhees Map
Caroline County and King & Queen County
Col. John Baylor's father was seated at Walkerton, where Col. John Baylor was born.
George Eubank is mentioned in the King & Queen County Fleet family probate record. Mentioned in the same record is a member of the Semple Family. Col. Baylor built his New Market Plantation in the new County of Caroline in1726/27.
Petition Opposing the Division of Drysdale Parish
A day later on October 16, 1779, the Religious Petition Opposing Division of Drysdale Parish was signed by JOHN EUBANK, WILLIAM EUBANK, AND JAMES EUBANK. This family lived in lower Drysdale Parish in Caroline County.
The names William and James appear together on the document. [Note: This may have been the James Eubank who married Benjamin Hubbard's sister, and moved to Kentucky.] The signature next to John Eubank is John Gardner, a surname associated with that of Eubank from earlier times in the the late 1600's in York County, and earlier on the Eastern Shore. These signers lived in the lower area of Caroline.
In February, 1785, James and Joseph Eubank were executors of the will of William Eubank. John Eubank, Sr. and William may have been brothers, and James, Joseph, and John first cousins to John and George Eubank, sons of John and Mary Bullard Eubank
Caroline County Land Books / Alterations 1782 - 1798
There were two men named William Eubank, with families, who lived in Caroline County in 1782-1798.
1787 William Eubank owned 225 acres in Nicholas Long's District - north of Mattaponi River (Drysdale area) William Eubank owned 122 acres in George Terrell's District - south of Mattaponi River (St. Margt's area)
1788 ditto all
1789 ditto all
1790 William Eubank, 225 acres, Nicholas Long's - William Eubank, 122 acres, Geo. Terrill's district.
John Eubank, 145 acres, transferred from John Oliver, Geo. Terrill's district.
1791 ditto all
1792 William Eubank, 225 acres, Nicholas Long's - William Eubank, 122 acres, Geo. Terrill's
John Eubank, 145 acres, Geo. Terrill's (By 1793 the 225 acres that William Eubank owned in Nicholas Long's district had been transferred to George Isbell. George Isbell married Susanna Eubank, daughter of this William Eubank. George Isbell and James Eubank acted as co-administrators of the will of William Moore in April 1784. This William Eubank who died in 1785 - and either he or a son William Eubank owned 225 acres in Nicholas Long's district - was very likely a brother to John Eubank b c 1720, who married Mary Bullard.)
1793 William, John, and Richard Eubank inherited land from the Estate of Alice Taylor : to William, 80 and 1/2 acres, John, 241 acres, Richard 133 acres.
In 1793 William Eubank is taxed for 202 acres in Geo. Terrill's district [William's original 122 acres plus the acreage he inherited equals 202 acres]
In 1793 John Eubank is taxed for 241 acres in Terrill's district, the acreage he inherited.
In 1793 Richard Eubank is taxed for 133 acres in Hargrave's district.
1796 William is taxed for 202 acres in Jesse Hargrave's district, formerly Geo. Terrill's district.
Richard is taxed for 133 acres in Hargrave's district.
In February, 1785, in Caroline County, James Eubank and Joseph Eubank were administrators of William Eubank's will. At the same time an appraisal and inventory of the Sarah Taylor estate was administered by James and Joseph Eubank. William's wife may have been Sarah Taylor, and her mother the Alice Taylor of the 1793 Estate bequest. Alice Taylor was the wife of Caroline Magistrate John Taylor.
Mary Bullard's Family of Caroline County
Mary Bullard's father was most likely THOMAS BULLARD. The Bullard family was settled early in the 1700's in the area where South River flows into the Mattaponi, about two miles southwest of Bowling Green. Thomas Bullard's estate was presented for probate on June 11, 1767, by executors John and Mary Bullard Eubank. Richard Woolfolk, Robert Woolfolk, Thomas Laughlin, and Eusebius Stone were appointed to appraise the estate.
Thomas Bullard's father may have been ROBERT BULLARD, whose immigration was sponsored by established Caroline resident John Buckner in 1714. The area of their patent was described as being on the "South side of [the] fork of South River issuing into Mattapony." The area is about two miles southwest from Bowling Green. The name Robert Bullard appears in early order book entries. In 1760, Thomas Bullard was exempt from tithes or road work. Such exemptions were given because of old age or illness. AMBROSE BULLARD [ Feb. 8, 1770 order] was most likely a brother to Mary, and LEWIS, JOHN, WILLIAM, JOSEPH, and GEORGE BULLARD were also uncles or brothers.
