     Elizabeth Henley was born in 1733, daughter of Leonard Henley and Elizabeth Richardson.5
     She also was known as Mary.6
     Her surname also is spelled as Hendley.6

     She is said to be of St. Anne's Parish, Albemarle County.

     Elizabeth married William Hamner, son of Nicholas Hamner Jr. Her surname is not mentioned in her husband's will, but the Slave Sale document proves the marriage and her surname.7,8,4

     On 25 December 1787, she is named Elizabeth in her husband's will of this date.9

     Elizabeth Hamner died in 1788 at age 55 years in Albemarle County, Virginia,10 and was buried at Hamner Family Cemetery, Keene, Albemarle County, Virginia. This is a guess as her tombstone has nothing carved on it, but judging by its age and location is believed to be hers.11

     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.

     On 8 June 1813, the Slave Sale document contains the affidavit of Elizabeth Fitzpatrick, sister of Jeremiah Hamner and the daughter of Elizabeth Hamner who was the daughter of Leonard Henly Senr. Decd., which states that Jeremiah was the eldest male child of his mother.4

     Leonard Henley was born circa 1673 because he would have had to have been 21 or older in 1694 when he was named heir-at-law.4,5

     On 26 October 1694, "Leonard Henly, 360 acres, James City County; N. side of Merriman's Sw; from Cattaile Meadow, along line of Pettus, &c; 175 acres due as heir of his father, Reynold Henly, to whom it was sold 15 Dec 1661, by Thomas Holliday; 185 acres within for importation of 4 negroes 'by the two friends.'"3

     I believe there are two Leonard Henleys in the following vestry book references. Until I plot out his land, it is impossible to know if this Leonard was a vestryman of the Lower Church or the Upper Church. I find it hard to believe one man would have been so nominated at both churches.

     On 8 October 1739, the vestry meeting at the Lower church noted that Mr. Leonard Henley was present as a vestryman and that "Capt. John Doran and Mr. Leonard Henley were Chosen Churchwardens and was Sworn Accordingly" at James City County, Virginia Colony.15

     It also ordered that "John Doran and Leonard Henley Gent be Continued C Wardens." Further noting that "Capt. John Doran and Mr. Leonard Henley Churchwardens for this Parish are apointed to Collect and receive the Saide Summ of thirty five pounds of Tobb from Every Indeviduall Tithable eprson within this parish and in Case of refusall of payment of any part thereof to Levie the Same by distress according to Law the Said Wardens frist Entering into Bond with good and Suficent Security to the vestry of this parish for the payment" at James City County, Virginia Colony.17

     Leonard Henley was born circa 1696, son of Leonard Henley. He had to have been born by 1702.

     On 17 March 1734, he made a deed of land.1

     On 15 March 1744/45, Leonard Henley was granted 30 acres on the branches of Tuckahoe Creek on the Henrico County Line [N20 degreesE], adj. John Martin & Richard Wade for 5 shillings in Goochland County, Virginia Colony.2

     On 20 September 1745, he was granted 130 acres, crossing Drinking hole Run, on the N side of Little Drinking Hole, on the line dividing this county from Goochland, in Slashy Ground; adj. John Martin, Johnson, Shoemaker, Robert Hardwick & the sd. Henleys own line for 15 shillings in Henrico County, Virginia Colony.3

     On 20 September 1745, he was granted 400 acres in Goochland County on both sides and near the Head of a branch of the Byrd Creek, called Phills Creek, beginning in a slash for £2.4

     I believe there are two Leonard Henleys in the following vestry book references. Until I plot out his land, it is impossible to know if this Leonard was a vestryman of the Lower Church or the Upper Church. I find it hard to believe one man would have been so nominated at both churches.

     It is also possible there are two Leonard Henleys with one living in James City County and one in Henrico County. Again, until I plot his land, I cannot be sure.

     On 6 March 1750, Leonard was at the lower Church vestry meeting as vestryman;5 on 18 May 1750, he attended the upper Church vestry meeting as vestryman;6 on 9 October 1750, he was at the upper Church vestry meeting as vestryman;7 on 16 October 1751, Leonard atended the lower Church vestry meeting as vestryman;8 on 3 October 1752, he attended the upper Church vestry meeting as vestryman;9 and, on 9 October 1753, he attended the lower Church vestry meeting as vestryman.10

     On 1 April 1754, Leonard Henley witnessed a deed conveyance from David Staples and Christian, his wife, to John Thompson, all of Henrico County, for £12 for 200 acres at Henrico County, Virginia Colony.11

     On 17 October 1754, Mr. Leonard Henley was present at this vestry meeting at the upper Church as vestryman at James City County, Virginia Colony.12

     On 6 October 1755, John Williams, and Mary, his wife conveyed to Leonard Henly (sic), all of Henrico County, for £10, 100 acres adj. Col. Peter Randolph, Esq., John Alldays and Sampson's Slash. Witnesses were Edward Curd and Lizby Turpin. Signed by John Williams and Mary (her mark) Williams. Recorded 6 Oct 1755 at Henrico County, Virginia Colony.13

     On 15 October 1755, Mr. Leonard Henley was present at this vestry meeting at the Lower Church as vestryman at James City County, Virginia Colony.14

     On 13 August 1757, Leonard Henly (sic) witnessed a deed conveyance from John Williamson, Sr., Gent., to William Jones, both of Henrico County, for £22, for 125 acres on the branches of Deep Run, adj. said William Jones' land where he now lives and adj. land formerly owned by Jacob Roberson; on Plumtree Branch and on the south side of the Main Road. Other witnesses were John Jude and Benjamin Clarke. Signed John Williamson. Recorded 6 Jun 1757 at Henrico County, Virginia Colony.15

     On 1 October 1757, Evan Shoemaker and Judith, his wife, conveyed to Benjamin Johnson, Jr., and Elizabeth, his wife, for £3 and 5 shillings, 123 acres adj. Benjamin Johnson, Hardwick and Burdit. Witnesses were Leonard Henley, Leonard Henley, Jr., and Molly Henley. Signed by Evan (his mark) Shewmaker and Judith (her mark) Shewmaker. The two Leonard Henleys are a problem, given that Leonard would have been 87 or so, but his son would fit! Recorded 3 Oct 1757 at Henrico County, Virginia Colony.16

     On 1 October 1757, Evan Shoemaker and Judith, his wife, conveyed to Benjamin Johnson, Jr., and Elizabeth, his wife, for £3 and 5 shillings, 123 acres adj. Benjamin Johnson, Hardwick and Burdit. Witnesses were Leonard Henley, Leonard Henley, Jr., and Molly Henley. Signed by Evan (his mark) Shewmaker and Judith (her mark) Shewmaker. The two Leonard Henleys are a problem, given that I believe this Leonard's father died prior to 1757 and this Leonard's son was allegedly born in 1768! Recorded 3 Oct 1757 at Henrico County, Virginia Colony.16

     On 8 November 1757, Leonard Henley witnessed a deed conveyance from John Martin of Albemarle County to William Wade of Goochland County, for £5, for 100 acres, being all the remaining part of the tract called Ben Hoars; adj. William Wade, Henley, Woodey, the fork of Drinking Hole and crossing Puncies Road, and Liggon. Other witnesses were John Jude and Mary Jude. Signed John (his mark) Marti. Recorded 5 Mar 1759, continued from 6 Mar 1758 for further proof at Henrico County, Virginia Colony.17

     On 1 May 1758, Leonard Henley witnessed a deed conveyance from William Harding of St. James Parish Northam, Goochland County to John Jude of Henrico County for £100 (10 shillings per acre or 100 acres). Recorded 1 May 1758 at Henrico County, Virginia Colony.18

     On 5 June 1758, John Williams, Jr. conveyed to Leonard Henley both of Henrico County for £30, 100 acres at the mouth of Sampson's Slash adj. the Hon. Col. Peter Randolph. Witnesses were Robert Shapard, William Ellis, and William Rountree. Signed by John (his mark) Williams. Recorded 5 Jun 1758 at Henrico County, Virginia Colony.19

     On 16 October 1758, Mr. Leonard Henley was present at this vestry meeting at the lower Church as vestryman at James City County, Virginia Colony.20

     On 9 October 1759, Mr. Leonard Henley was present at this vestry meeting at the upper Church as vestryman at James City County, Virginia Colony.21

     On 6 October 1760, Leonard Henley conveyed to Lusby Turpin, both of Henrico County for £25, 70 acres on Cornelius Creek at the mouth of Sampson's Slash; adj. Col. Peter Randolph and Josiah Allday. Witnesses were Richard Adams, John Redford and John Bryan. Signed Leond. Henley. Recorded 3 Nov 1760 at Henrico County, Virginia Colony.22

     On 7 September 1761, John Jude conveyed to Leonard Henley, both of Henrico County, for £50, 200 acres on Deep Branch adj. Benjamin Clarke, John Clarke, Thomas Lewis and John Gording. Witnesses were Richard Adams, George Payne, and Peter Clarke. Signed John Jude with Mary, wife of John Jude, relinquishing her dower. Recorded 7 Sep 1761 at Henrico County, Virginia Colony.23

     On 6 October 1761, Col. Richard Randolph, Gent. and Anne, his wife, conveyed to Leonard Henley, all of Henrico County for £55:7:6, 400 acres on the branches of Tuckahoe Creek, granted to Col. Richard Randolph, deceased, father of the said Richard Randolph, by patent and included in his tract Windsor Forrest tract; adj. Henry Ellis, John Ellis, Rockett, William Ellis and Thomas Ellis. There were no witnesses. Signed Richard Randolph [no signature for wife, nor release of dower]. Recorded 5 Oct 1761 at Henrico County, Virginia Colony.24

     Leonard Henley died before 19 October 1761 in James City County, Virginia Colony.
     Find A Grave does not have a memorial page for him as of 1 Feb 2019.25

     On 19 October 1761, the vestry book entry of this date states that "Capt. William Richardson, Capt. William Macon, and Capt. Edward Power are chosen Vestrymen in the stead of Mr. Leonard Henley dec'd, Mr. Isaac Goddin dec'd and Mr. William Hogg dec'd."25

Family

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

     On 18 August 1853, a William Henly married Mary M. Rogers in Washington County, Tennessee. Could this be he?

     This couple were enumerated in several census and he is buried as William M. Henley, b. 22 Nov 1829 and died 26 Oct 1913 in Asbury Cemetery, Washington County, Tennessee. However, in the census he always lists his parents as born in Tennessee.2,3

     I've also found a William M. Henley, born c1828-29 in Tennessee who was enumerated in Clark, Cole County, Missouri, both of whose parents were born in Tennessee, but don't know if this is the right man because his parents were actually born in Virginia. However, he may not have known their birthplace. His wife's name is Anna J. and she is 78, born in Missouri.4

     The Wm. Horn who was enumerated in the 1830 census in Wilson County was between the ages of 40 and 50 which is too old to be this man. The William Hern who was enumerated in Greenup County, Kentucky was even older.

     The Wm H. Horn who was enumerated in Nashville, Davidson County, Tennessee had a very large household to be this man: one free white male under 5; two free white males 20 and under 30; and two free white males 30 and under 40 (but he could be living with a brother, etc.); one free white female under 5; one free white female 5 and under 10; one free white female 10 and under 15; two free white females 30 and under 40. However, when this man was enumerated in 1850 in Nashville, his wife's name was Nancy G.5

     I cannot find any death/burial information as of 1 Jul 2021.
