     William Hamner was born circa 1710, son of Nicholas Hamner Jr, in James City County, Virginia Colony. He had to be a more mature man than the birth dates of 1730 or 1732 indicate because he was named an executor of his brother's will in 1750. However, I think 1720 is too early a date.

     However, the cited book claims this William to be the son of Nicholas III of Albermarle who died there in 1793. It shows this man born in 1730 in New Kent County and dying ini 1785 in Albemarle County. He married Elizabeth Hen(d)ly and they had eleven children.3 William Hamner also has been reported to have been born circa 1720 but, I am tending to think this date makes more sense as far as the birth of his children goes than the 1710 date whereas the 1730-32 dates seems too late;4 or, in 1730 at New Kent County, Virginia Colony.5

     William married Elizabeth Henley, daughter of Leonard Henley and Elizabeth Richardson. Her surname is not mentioned in her husband's will, but the Slave Sale document proves the marriage and her surname.6,7,8

     In August 1748, a survey was performed by Joshua Fry on land deeded from Jno. Anthony to Wm. Hamner at Albemarle County, Virginia Colony.9

     On 2 October 1750, he is named as "well beloved Brother" by Robert Hamner in his will of this date and named an executor. He ultimately served as the sole executor when Robert's wife, Elizabeth, refused to serve. He was named guardian of Robert's son, Nicholas at Albemarle County, Virginia Colony.10

     On 9 February 1759, he bought from Thos. Fitzpatrick for £200, 497 acres on Hardaway branches in Albemarle County, Virginia Colony. Witnesses: Wm. Lee, Wm. Lifely, Ganalion Baley, Hugh Donaty.11

     On 12 May 1759, William Hamner was granted 192 acres on both sides of Hardware River in Albemarle County, Virginia Colony, for 20 Shillings (according to the original document; £1 according to Cavaliers & Pioneers), adj. John Burns & Joseph Jackson.12,13

     On 3 March 1760, John Smith, Junior, was granted 200 acres in Albemarle County on the N. side of Hardware Riv. and on its Brs., adjacent William Hamner & the late Secretarys line for £1.14

     On 19 August 1763, he was one of the appraisers of the estate of Thomas Sowell at Albemarle County, Virginia Colony.15

     In January 1767, he was one of the appraisers of the estate of Michael Daugherty at Albemarle County, Virginia Colony.16

     On 9 December 1768, William made a Deed of Gift to his son, Samuel, of 148 acres of land in Albemarle County, Virginia Colony.17

     On 17 July 1772, he was one of the men who inventoried the estate of William Melton at Albemarle County, Virginia Colony.18

     On 1 March 1773, he received a grant for 170 acres on both sides of the north fork of the Hardware River.19

     On 18 October 1773, Epraim Bowing sold his property, save "except for enough to pay Wm. Hamner my Rents due to him to this date" at Albemarle County, Virginia Colony.20

     On 22 February 1774, a deed between William and Elizabeth Hickock and George Eubanks' heirs describes the land as beginning at William Hamners line . . . . to Nichs: Hamners corner . . from then to William Hamners line. It was sealed and delivered in the presence of Nicholas Hamner at Albemarle County, Virginia Colony.21

     On 15 July 1774, a deed between David Nowlin and John Henderson Jr. describes the land involved as joining the lands of Wm. Hamner, John Fitzpatrick & Jeremiah Hamner in Albemarle County, Virginia Colony.22

     He performed his Military Service circa 1776 as an Ensign in the 4th Company, 2st Battalion, 47th Regiment, Virginia Line. This has got to be another William Hamner because this man is too old to be an ensign.

     On 22 October 1776, it is claimed by an online site that William Hamner signed the Albemarle/Amherst Dissenters Petition on this date. I have carefully gone through the names of all the signers of this petition; William Hamner's name is not among the signers of this document.23

     In 1777, he purchased from Dr. Hopkins about 1,500 acres on the waters of Totier.

     On 12 October 1780, he was given certificate no. 104 for 20 bushels of rye for £240.24,25

     In November 1781, the Act of Assembly produced a List of Soldiers of the Virginia Line on Continental Establishment who have received certificates for the balance of there /[sic/] full pay. On this list appears the name of William Hamner on which he's listed as a soldier in the infantry, his last pay, amounting to £17-3-4, was received by A. Russell on 20 Apr 1785. I do not see how this could belong with this particular William Hamner who, surely, was too old to have served in the Continental Line. However, I do not have another William Hamner of the right age so will leave this here for now.26

     In 1782, he sold approximately 1,400 acres of his land to Colonel John Old at Albemarle County, Virginia.27

     On 11 July 1782, William Hamner was credited with 325# of bacon taken by G. Nicholas C in the amount of £2-14-2C.28

     William Hamner left a will dated on 25 December 1787 at Albemarle County, Virginia, in which he describes himself as "being sick and weak but sound in mind and memory." He bequeathed "to my son Jeremiah, one Negro woman Kate and her children and their increase to him and his heirs forever; to my son Samuel, 20 shilling in current Virginia money; to son Turner, 273 acres of land where he now lives and also one Negro woman Nan and her increase to him and his heirs forever; to son Henley, four Negroes, Viz: Jack, Sarah, Reuben, Toby, they and their increase to him and his heirs forever; to son Richardson, 450 acres of land that I now live on and 150 acres of which to be laid off to him at the death of Nicholas Hamner and these hundred acres to be laid off so as to include his dwelling and either houses about it so as not to take my dwelling house nor to go lower down then to join the land of the lower end of the Tract that I shall dispose of. I also bequeath to my son Richardson one Negro woman Phillis /[sic/] and her children and they increase to him and his heirs forever; to my daughter Elizabeth Fitzpatrick 20 shillings current Virginia money; to my daughter Molly Perry 200 acres of land being the land she now lives on to her and her heirs forever; to my daughter Susannah Turner one Negro woman Hannah and her children and their increase to her and her heirs forever; to my daughter Rebecca Turner one Negro woman Dinah and her children to her and her heirs forever; to my daughter Mildred /[?/] One Negroe Man /[unreadable, maybe Thomas/] to her and her heirs forever; to my granddaughter Elizabeth Moon one Negro woman /[unreadable, maybe Easter or Paster/] and her children and their increase to her and her heirs forever; to my grandson David Strange 200 acres of land to be laid off to him on the lower end of my land joining the end of William Hopkins and Jacob Moon to him and his heirs forever. To my beloved wife Elizabeth two Negroes viz: Toby and Sue to be her property forever and to be at her disposal. I also lend her two Negroes Simon and /[unreadable, Jan or Iran/] during her life and also 126 acres of land more or less being the remainder of my land after my son Richardson and my grandson David Strange Land are laid off and at the decease of my wife I bequeath the same land and Negroes lent to her and they increase to my son Richardson and his heirs forever. Also to wife Elizabeth all my Estate of every kind that shell remain after what I have above bequeathed and all of my just debts and financial charges be punctually paid to be her property and at her disposal. He appoints his wife, Elizabeth, son Turner Hamner, Jacob Moon and Nicholas Hamner as Executors. Witnesses were Richard Hopkins, Samuel /[unreadable/], William Hopkins, Junr., and A. C/[unreadable/].29

     William Hamner died before July 1788 in Albemarle County, Virginia,29 and was buried in Hamner Family Cemetery, Keene, Albemarle County, Virginia. Finding the Hamner Family Cemetery is a difficult proposition. When James Edward Hamner surveyed it in 1987, it had been cleared as recently as 1982 by the Shadwell Chapter of the DAR.

     When re-visited in 2006, it was badly over-grown and the author was glad the cemetery had been charted. Most of the graves are those of the descendants of Captain Nicholas Hamner. However, "as you face the cemetery, the far right front corner contains three old, blank stones, which could mark the grave sites of William and Elizabeth Hamner, the uncle and aunt of Captain Nicholas Hamner who lived nearby.

     When Mr. Hamner visited the site in 1986, he was able to see the ruins of two old Hamner homes; in 2006, only the first one approached in 1986 could be located.

     Directions to the site of the two homes and cemetery follow: "Upon leaving Charlottesville, drive south toward Scottsville on Virginia Primary Hwy, 20; just before reaching Carter's Bridge over the Hardware River, turn right on Virginia Secondary Hwy. 708. Proceed a short distance just past the new Walton School on the right side of this road; then turn left onto Virginia Secondary Hwy. 717, which is a gravel road. Continue slowly on this winding, narrow gravel road which soon crosses an old bridge over the Hardware River; proceed on 717 until you see a mailbox on the right side of the road with the name 'Moon' printed on it. Next, make a sharp turn to the right onto a partly gravel/dirt road (a lovely log home has been built on the adjacent land by Mr. Jim Bonner, and there is a new sign designated 'Hamner's Road' as you make the turn right). Follow the dirt road until lit ends at a cattle gate which will probably be locked, but Mr. Moon is gracious to allow Hamner family members onto his land. A large meadow pasture lies ahead (several cattle and a contentious bull were present on our 2006 visit). On the right side near the far end of the large, fenced pasture is Mr. Moon's trailer home. About 30-40 yards from his home is another cattle gate. In 1987, the overgrown, grassy road on the other side of this last gate was cleared enough to drive an automobile on it, although the forest was somewhat thick in places on each side. Driving slowly, we suddenly saw two chimneys of the first Hamner house which was located on the left side, about 15 yards off the road. Proceeding onward . . . this meadow were the barely discernible, remaining ruins of the second ancient Hamner home, which was surrounded by a dense thicket. There were parts of two large, crumbling chimneys, a thick stone wall along the front with remnants of a large open stone doorway, and two massive fireplaces inside, topped by stone slab mantles. Most of the outside stone walls collapsed years ago, and native rock and stone fragments were littered along an almost undistinguishable floor/wall base outline. The old, abandoned home with remnants of its thick, stone walls resembles a study fort to withstand Indian attacks, rather than a comfortable home. Both the interior and exterior areas were greatly engulfed by a dense overgrowth of scrub trees, saplings, vines, weeds, and briars that camouflage the old ruins to such a degree that it could be easily overlooked. It is saddening to view these old home ruins that were once well-built home for our early Albemarle Hamner ancestors. Yet, at the same time, they still give one the feelings of awe and reverence. The exact construction dates for these two ancient home ruins are impossible to know with any degree of accuracy. An estimated time for the building of these tow old homes would be the 1760's. There are tombstones for captain Nicholas Hamner and his wife, Agnes, in the old Hamner Family cemetery, which is located about 50 yards from the second house site. There are several ancient, gray unmarked tombstones in the cemetery that could possibly be the burial sites for either Robert and Elizabeth Hamner, or William and Elizabeth Henley Hamner, or other Hamner Family members.

     "Returning to this site in 2006, the topography of the area past the second cattle gate revealed an immense change. The grassy 'road' was completely impassable by automobile since it was overgrown with saplings, fallen trees, large tree limbs, and brush. The forest appeared to be closing in, transforming what had once been a civilized area back into a primitive wilderness. This unexpected, shadowy, arboreal transition of nature produced a very eery, haunting feeling of deja vue regarding the past. Following the unrecognizable broken road path, I literally stumbled upon the stark, stunning view of the first Hamner home's two chimneys looming up in the darkened forest. The use of the description 'first home' doe not refer to the time of construction; 'first' implies the first home seen along the forest road. . . . these two chimneys are composed of pinkish native stone and are still remarkably well preserved. They have both upper and lower level fireplaces on each side of the chimneys, indicative of what once was a large two-story building. These tow chimneys are all that remain intact form the first home. Stones and large rocks which once formed the outside walls of the house lie littered in the overly luxuriant, dense underbrush.

     "Continuing onward, the 'road' eventually led to a large, unkempt meadow that was vastly different in appearance form previous visits. Random, past timber cutting had most likely caused the radical change in the meadow's appearance, which made it impossible to conjure remembered bearings. It had a huge, multiple cloverleaf appearance that seemed bafflingly unfamiliar. Diligent searching of these mixed projections of timber, thicket, and overgrown meadow did not produce any positive results . . . I was even more thankful that we had seen and photographed all of these relics and had charted the Hamner Family Cemetery tombstones for posterity in 1987.

     In the meadow about 50 yards from the front of the second Hamner home ruins lies the ancient Hamner Family cemetery, which is completely surrounded by a six-foot, dry-wall stone fence. The front line of the forest is situated about 20 yards behind the rear section of the cemetery enclosure. There are 31 tombstones and 3 smaller, ancient stones without marking upon them . . that delineate the graves of the Hamners and a few of their other relatives. In1982, a group of 75 descendants of Captain Nicholas Hamner gathered in the cemetery, accompanied by the Monticello Color Guard, the U. VA. Monroe Rifles, and the Shadwell Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution, to dedicate a D. A. R. memorial marker at the grave site of Captain Nicholas Hamner. The ceremony honored his military service during the Revolutionary War & marked his 240th birthday. . . . "

     Mr. Hamner then diagrams the cemetery."The first person's recorded death on the 31 inscribed tombstones in this old Hamner Cemetery plotting was Captain Nicholas Hamner on June 13, 1793. The last recorded burial in the cemetery was Sarah Maddox Gay, the daughter of James & Sallie Hamner Maddox and the wife of W. J. Gay, on November 16, 1919."30

     His estate was probated in July 1788 in Albemarle County, Virginia.29

     A map prepared in 1875 shows the locations of two Hamner properties. I believe the one on the Hardware River is possibly where William Hamner and the abandoned cemetery are located. I have circled both locations.

     John Boyd and Frances Bailey obtained a marriage bond on 27 October 1794 in Amherst County, Virginia,1 with William Lyon, perhaps her brother, giving consent to the marriage.1 John Boyd married Frances Bailey, daughter of John Lyon, after 27 October 1794 at Amherst County, Virginia.

     This is very strange. Frances Lyon is said to be a spinster, so perhaps this is another Frances Lyon. A Francis Lyon made an oath that John Boyd was over 21 years of age.1

Family

Child
Last Edited25 Jun 2019
     Reynold Henley was born in England.1 He was also known as Reginald2 or as Reynald.2

     According to the manuscript, which provides no documentation, Reynold was married to Susan Turner, the daughter of Cornelius Turner of England. They had one son and two daughters. Mary, the second daughter, married Simon Stone of England.3

     A DAR manuscript (not otherwise documented) claims he had two other sons: Philip who settled in Gloucester County, living in 1665 on Eastermost River, evidently dying without issue and who was the guardian of Leonard; and Robert, who settled in Essex County, and married a Gates. He is said to ahve left no male issue. His will, proved 1685, mentions no children. However, one of his granddaughters in the last century (1700/s) adopted the eldest son of a representative of the James City branch who was brought up and married in Essex but settled in King & Queen County leaving a large family there and thereabouts."4

     On 10 September 1658, "The Accompt of Anthony Burroughs, orphan. Three Cowes, the marke of 2 of them are Cropt on yee left Eare & slitt & underkeeled of ye same Eare & under keeled of ye right Eare. ye other is Cropt on ye right Eare & 3 slitts in ye Cropp & ye other Eare whole, one cow calfe, one bull calfe & ye other was barren; Two sowes, Three Shoats Swallow forked on both Eares, under keeled one Eare & over keeled ye other."
                (signed) Reynald Henley.2

     On 10 September 1659, at a Court held on this date in York County: "An Accompt of ye cattle belonging to ye estate of Anthony Burrowes - Three Cowes, one yearling & two calves yis fall, three sowes."
                (signed) Renald Henley.5,6

     As early as 1660, he had settled in James City County, Virginia Colony. A tract of land containing 360 acres bounded by Cattail Meadow - on a neck of land lying on northside of Merryman's Swamp, 175 acres thereof due to Leonard Henley as heir to his father, Reynold Henley, deceased, to whom it was sold and assigned 15 Dec 1661 by Thomas Holliway, 185 acres residue thereof is further due for importation of four persons by Leonard.7

     On 10 September 1660, "It is ordered yt John Woods pay unto Robert Partridge & Reignald Henley Forty pounds of tobacco a peece for attendance this court as witnesses for him."8

     Also: "The Accompt of Anthony Burrowes - Three Cowes, one Barren, one cow calfe, one Bull calfe, one two year old heifer, one yearling heifer, three Sowes, one yearling dead.
                (signed) Reynald Henley" at York County, Virginia Colony.9

     On 10 September 1661, "The Accompt of Anthony Burrowes - Three Cowes - 3 cow calves - one 2 yeare old heifer - one yearling - one dead - 3 sowes - one boar.
                (signed) Reynald Henley."10

     On 15 December 1661, Thomas Holliday conveyed to Reynold Henley 175 acres on the north side of Merriman's Swamp; from Cattaile Meadow, along line of Pettus at James City County, Virginia Colony.11,12

     Reynold Henley received 185 acres for the importation of four persons. The land is described as bounded from Cattail Meadow - - on a neck of land lying on northside Merryman's Swamp. [Note the acreage variation]13

     On 10 September 1662, "Anthony Burroughs, orphan, by ye Court judged to be twenty one yeares of age & thereupon ordered to be free and that he be possesst with his estate by Reignald Henley his Guardian and also that he be Accomptable to ye said orphan for his full labour since he was seaventeen yeares of age at ye next court according to Act" at York County, Virginia Colony.14,15

     Reynold was a landowner on Jamestowne Island.16

     Reynold Henley died before 26 October 1694 in James City County, Virginia Colony, because his heir-at-law, Leonard Henley, claimed the land bought of Thomas Holliday in 1661.11
