FatherWilliam Worsham2 b. s 1620, d. c 1661
MotherElizabeth Littleberry1 b. c 1623, d. 23 Sep 1678
     Charles Worsham was born circa 1658 in Bermuda Hundred, Henrico County, Virginia.1 He was the son of William Worsham and Elizabeth Littleberry.2,1 He married Mary Bevill, daughter of Essex Bevill and Amy Butler.3 He died on 5 May 1712 in Henrico County, Virginia.1
     Charles Worsham was the youngest of three sons born to William Worsham and his wife, Elizabeth Littleberry, In 1661 when Charles was age three, his father died at age forty-two, leaving his mother with five children ranging from age 4 - 14 to raise on her own. In about 1663 his mother married secondly, Colonel Francis Epes, Jr. of Henrico County, by whom she had four more children. Col. Epes became involved in the affairs of Charles and his siblings. Colonel Epes was most likely the father that Charles remembered most as he was so very young when his natural father died unexpectedly.

On 20 August 1678 COL. FRANCIS EPES was present at an Orphans' Court in Henrico County, and gave an account of the cattle belonging to CHARLES and MARY WORSHAM, orphans of Mr. WILLIAM WORHSAM. (Source: Adventurers of Purse & Person, page 858] Charles Worsham was named in the will of his mother, ELIZABETH LITTLEBURY WORSHAM EPPES as follows:
Will of Elizabeth Worsham Epes/Eppes to her Worsham Children
Dated: 28 August 1678
"Elizabeth Epes, of Bermuda Hundred, widow," makes the following bequests: to daughter, ELIZABETH (Worsham) KENNON a stone ring, her black gown, green silk petticoat, green satin bodie, and one-fourth of her money in the hands of SAMUEL CLAPHAMSON (of London); to her grandchild, MARY KENNON/BOLLING a stone ring "given me by my sister King; to her daughter, MARY WORSHAM, one-fourth of her money, certain personal property and wearing apparel, and her thumb ring; to her daughter MARY EPPES, a "new suite which came in this year"; to son JOHN WORSHAM, one-fourth of her money and her silver tobacco box; to son CHARLES WORSHAM, one-fourth of her money and certain other personal property. The remainder of her estate to her husband, Eppes' children. Makes her son-in-law RICHARD KENNON, executor.1 Charles Worsham died by 5 May 1712 wherein the court granted ELIZABETH KENNON, his sister and evidently a creditor, administration of his estate. Mrs. Kennon presented his estate inventory to the Henrico Court on 7 July 1712. Records of a 1724 land dispute identify WILLIAM WORSHAM as the eldest son of Charles Worsham and report that Charles then had three sons and two daughters living. ESSEX WORSHAM, identified as the security for Mary Worsham in this dispute, was undoubtedly Charles' son.

A court case involving Mary wife of Charles Worsham is found in Henrico Co., VA Minute Bk, 1719-1724 pp 233, 358 & 362. The following is a quote from the book, "Worsham & Washam Family History" by Dorothy G. Tuttle & Larry E. Washam page 19: There was a suit for debt between ROBERT BLAWS, Plt and MARY WORSHAM Deft in Henrico Feb Court 1722 for 20 shillings & ESSEX WORSHAM was her security. In Henrico Co. Sept Court, another suit appeared. This suit was between RICHARD HAVEWELL, lesee of JOHN WORSHAM Plt. vs MARY & WM WORSHAM Deft. It was brought out in the suit that JOHN WORSHAM deeded the land in dispute to his brother CHARLES WORSHAM for 99 years on 2 Dec 1678. After CHARLES WORSHAM'S death, JOHN WORSHAM rented it to RICHARD HAVEWELL. It also stated that MARY was the lawful wife of CHARLES WORSHAM, dec'd and that WM WORSHAM was the eldest son and heir of CHARLES WORSHAM. WM WORSHAM had leased the land in dispute for 99 years for a quart of rum a year to ESSEX WORSHAM and that CHARLES left at his death 3 sons and 2 daughters which were still living. In Henrico Co. Oct 1724 Court, verdict was found for the Deft MARY & WM. WORSHAM & JOHN WORSHAM was ordered to pay a certain amount of tobacco to his three witnesses Peter Hunsaker, George Worsham & Charles Roberts for appearing in court.

Virginia Patent Book No. 12 states the following: CHARLES WORSHAM, 300 acres (N. L.), Henrico County; on North side of Appamattock River; adjacent William Moore; on South side of Good's Branch; 17 August 1725; p. 254. 30 Shillings. (Source: Cavaliers & Pioneers, Vol 3, p 287)

Lewis Tanner acquired 400 acres on 17 August 1725 on north side of Appamattock River adjacent Francis Worsham & Thomas Tanner, on west side of Good;s Branch' Walter Scott's & Charles Worshams line; Patent Book 12, p p287, for 40 shillings. (Cavaliers & Pioneers, Vol 3, p 290)

After Charles Worsham died, his wife, MARY WORSHAM, was involved in a court case and in her deposition she stated she had 3 sons & 2 daughters. Charles & Mary had descendants in Henrico Co., VA; Prince George Co., VA., Brunswick Co., VA, Chesterfield Co., VA. The girls have been difficult to identify and it is through Ward family legend and two family Bible records that it has been established that Frances, wife of Richard Ward originally of Henrico County and later of Lunenburg County, is the daughter of Charles of Mary. A Ward family Bible record documents the birthdate of Frances Ward.2

Lewis Tanner acquired 400 acres on 17 August 1725 on north side of Appamattock River adjacent Francis Worsham & Thomas Tanner, on west side of Good;s Branch' Walter Scott's & Charles Worshams line; Patent Book 12, p p287, for 40 shillings. (Cavaliers & Pioneers, Vol 3, p 290)

After Charles Worsham died, his wife, MARY WORSHAM, was involved in a court case and in her deposition she stated she had 3 sons & 2 daughters. Charles & Mary had descendants in Henrico Co., VA; Prince George Co., VA., Brunswick Co., VA, Chesterfield Co., VA. The girls have been difficult to identify and it is through Ward family legend and two family Bible records that it has been established that Frances, wife of Richard Ward originally of Henrico County and later of Lunenburg County, is the daughter of Charles of Mary. A Ward family Bible record documents the birthdate of Frances Ward.3

Richard Ward1

b. say 1617, d. 1682
FatherSeth Ward1 b. c Mar 1595/96, d. 1682
     Richard Ward was born say 1617 in England.1 He was the son of Seth Ward.1 He died in 1682 in Sheffield, Varina Parish, Henrico County, Virginia.1
     Richard Ward , the son of SETH WARD and perhaps KATHARINE SMITH, removed from England to Colonial Virginia sometime before 1634 and settled in Henrico County below present-day Richmond. Henrico was one of the original 8 shires into which Virginia was divided in 1634; this peninsula is on the north side of the James River, between the James and the Chickahominy, beginning at the mouth of the Chickahominy where it empties into the James and extends to "the falls" of the James which flows between Henrico and Chesterfield Counties.

Richard Ward served as a magistrate in Henrico County in 1666 ; the date of his birth is not known; he died in 1682. Richard married ELIZABETH (surname not established at present) and by her had four known children: SETH WARD, RICHARD WARD, EDWARD WARD & ELIZABETH WARD as proven by his Last Will & Testament of 1682 and possibly a son, JOHN WARD, who was not named in his will.
[Va. Mag. II, p 312]

Richard Ward resided at Varina in Henrico County, Virginia, located more than a mile above the Dutch Gap Canal. Varina was named because of the superior character of the tobacco in the are which resembled high-price Spanish tobacco called Varina. [Taylor, Lyon G; Cradle of the Republic, 1906, p 221]

Richard's father, SETH WARD, obtained 60 acres within the Corporation of Henrico upon the land of DANIEL SHERLY on May 30, 1634, 21 year lease. On March 21, 1633 Captain John Ward (relationship if any not proven) obtained his land March 21, 1633. [Va. Mag.II, p 312.]

On 21 November 1635 Lt. JOHN CHEESEMAN was granted 600 acres in the County of Charles River (York) on the New Poguoson River and Oyster Creek, adjoining the land of WILLIAM HAWKINS due for the transportation of twelve persons to the Colony: Christopher Everett, Phillip Aunt, Mary a Negro, Edward Cotterell, Jane Bolton, Robert Corbett, Richard Duning, RICHARD WARD, George Carter, Richard Banks, John Hanwell, and Mathias a Negro. Abstracts of Virginia Land Patents, page 614) On 8 March 1636 (Patent Book 1, Part 1, p 471) Captain John Cheeseman refiled his 600 acres for transport of 12 persons: Christopher Averitt, Phillip Averit, Mary a Negro, Edward Catterell, Joane Boltono, Robert Cockett, Richard During, RICHARD WARD, George Costen, Richard Banks, John Harwell, Mathias a Negro. (Cavaliers & Pioneers, Vol 1, p 69)

Seth Ward1

b. circa March 1595/96, d. 1682
     Seth Ward was born circa March 1595/96 in Cambridgeshire.1 He died in 1682 in Varina Parish, Henrico County, Virginia.1
     Seth Ward was the immigrant ancestor of the Ward family of Henrico, later Chesterfield, Amelia, Nottoway, Lunenburg, Charlotte, Lee and other counties in Virginia and North Carolina. SETH WARD and CAPTAIN JOHN WARD of England and Henrico, Virginia were probably kinsmen, possibly brothers, and may be the grandson of SETH WARD of Abbington, Cambridgeshire, England who died in 1598 and left a will.

SETH WARD may be related, though no direct proof has yet been found, as son or brother of Ancient Planter CAPTAIN JOHN WARDE of early Virginia as described in a will found in the Prerogative Court of Canterbury, 51 Lewyn, written on February 14th, 1598 by SETH WARD of Abbington, Cambridgeshire, England, yeoman, proved June 20th 1598 by JOHN WARDE. SETH WARD named in his will his wife, ANNIS/ANNE; sons, JOHN WARDE, ENOS WARDE, and THOMAS WARDE; Daughters MARIE WARDE and ANNE JACOB; Grandchildren JOHN WARDE and SETH WARDE, sons of testator's son JOHN WARDE; Brother ROBERT WARD; Sister WILSONNE; Grandchildren ANNE WARD (daughter of JOHN WARDE), MARTHA WARD, ALICE WARD and MARIE WARD. The testator, SETH WARD, owned lands in Litlington and Stephen Norden, Cambridgeshire. He made bequests to JOHN WARDE "the sonne of my said sonne JOHN WARDE tenn pounds of lawfull English monie to be paid unto him at the age of one and twentie yeares; also I give unto SETH WARD, his brother, the somme of tenn pounds of like lawfull English monie to be paide unto him at the age of one and twentie yeares."

Captain JOHN WARDE, Ancient Planter, and SETH WARDE appeared at the same time in the same locality in Virginia, each holding lands in Henrico County and along the James River. The Ancient Planter JOHN WARDE was in Virginia by 1616. A census taken March-May 1619 enumerated twenty-six men, no women or children on "CAPTAYNE WARDES PLANTATION." Records state that CAPTAIN JOHN WARDE arrived in Virginia on the ship Sampson on 22 April 1619 and left the next month to fish as far north as Maine. Researcher Mary Ward states that a record found in The Compendium of American Genealogy that traces SETH WARD of Henrico County, VA to CAPT. JOHN WARD, however, no record of JOHN WARD has been found that specifically names SETH WARD as his son. ( Note: Seth Ward was in Henrico County, Virginia no later than February 11, 1632 when he was granted a lease for 21 years in the upper parts of Henrico County. Captain John Ward's land was located on the other side of the James River in Surry County, across the river from Jamestown and Williamsburg. Seth Ward did not qualify as an Ancient Planter as he arrived after 1616.)

Ancient Planter was a designation given as follows: " A colonist in Virginia by the year 1616 was entitled to 100 acres of land provided he paid his own passage and had dwelt in the Colony for three years when application for land was made. In accordance with a predetermined policy of the Virginia Company, no individiual assignments of land were made during the first seven years of the Colony's existence. The policy of granting patents for acreage to settlers was inagurated during the later part of the time of Sir Thomas Dale, Governor from 1611-1616. Those entitled to this land were designated as Ancient Planters." (Jamestowne Society Newsletter, April 2006, "Chronicle of Jamestowne Ancestors", by Virginia Lee Hutcheson Davis)

On May 30th 1634, the governor of Virginia issued a land patent to SEATH WARD, Planter, of Varina in the upper part, a land patent, 60 aces in the upper parts, within the Corporation of Henrico, West upon the land of DANIEL SHURLEY extending Easterly towards a tree known as Powhatan Tree and abutting Southerly upon Three Mile Swamp, and Nly. into the maine woods, 21 year lease expiring May 30, 1655. (Patent Book 1, Part 1, p. 148) (Cavaliers & Pioneers, Vol 1, p 19)

On July 14th, 1637, Seth's son, RICHARD WARD, received a patent for 100 acres in Varina, Henrico County, adjoining JOHN BAKER, etc. -- 50 acres due for his "own personal adventure" indicating that he was an immigrant to Virginia and an additional 50 acres by purchase (Virginia Patent Book 1, Page 440). (Cavaliers & Pioneers, Vol 1) According to Virginia Immigrants 1623-1666, RICHARD WARD was imported into Virginia in the year 1636, by Capt. John Chelsman, Charles River County. Also in 1635 RICHARD WARD was shown to be imported into Virginia by John Cheeseman, Charles River County. (John Chelsman and John Cheeseman are more than likely one and the same man.)

The SETH WARD patent was land previously home to THOMAS SHEFFIELD and his family from 1619 to 1622. THOMAS SHEFFIELD had received a royal land grant of 2,300 acres from the Crown of England; he and his family were tragically killed in an Indian Massacre on February 22, 1622. From 1622 to 1634 the land remained uninhabited until the Indians and settlers reached an agreement and it was safe for the settlers to return to the area. SETH WARD acquired the Sheffield property in 1634. RICHARD GREGORY of Dinwiddie bought about 1,000 acres from another SETH WARD sometime between 1797 - 1805 and built the house that sits on the property today. Other owners of the land were MR. GREGORY's son and later his granddaughter LAVINA and her husband, MAJOR AUGUSTUS DREWRY; during this time the Confederates built a fort there known as Fort Darling at Drewry's Bluff. After the Civil War Drewry traded the farm to CAPTAIN JAMES B. JONES, a confederate officer who had served at Fort Darling. In 1887 the entire property was sold to JAMES BELLWOOD of Canada, and an agriculturist. With his three sons JAMES BELLWOOD turned the 2,400 acres into a model farm. In June 1941 the U. S. Army bought the land from the BELLWOOD sons who negotiated for the Army to take care of the elk that their father had placed on the land. The old home is used as an Officer's Club today. The property is the present site of the DEFENSE SUPPLY CENTER RICHMOND.

"Virginia Gleanings in England" states that on Feburary 1, 1650 SETH WARD sold acreage to MORGAN PIERCE (Henrico County records, Volume 1677-92, page 239) that SETH WARD held as a patent for 350 acres of land in the vicinity of Varina, Henrico County, 150 acres by a former patent and 50 acres by purchase from JOHN BAKER and 150 acres for transportation of three persons (Virginia Patent Book 1, page 946).

On 22 November 1643 SETH WARD patented 350 acres in the vicinity of Varina, Henrico County of which 1250 acres by a former patent and 50 acres by purchase from JOHN BAKER and 150 acres for transporting of three persons. (Virginia Patent Book No. 1, page 946). SETH WARD sold this land to MORGAN PIERCE on February 1, 1650 (Henrico County Records, Volume 1677-1692, p 239). The patent in Henrico County as recorded in Virginia Patents 1 on page 946, Library of Virginia Digital Collection, Land Office Patents and Grants. It reads as follows: SETH WARD his Pattent for 350 acres of Land Examd, To all & C. Whereas &c. Now know yee that I the said.

[NOTE: One source states that one of these imported individuals by Seth Ward prior to 1643 was SIMON LYGON, who may have been the brother of THOMAS LYGON. SIMON LIGON was indentured to SETH WARD for his importation and worked for Seth’s son, RICHARD WARD as Richard’s will mentioned him. Robert Thompson imported a second Simon Lygon in 1688. This researcher has found no documents to date to prove that Seth Ward imported Simon Ligon into Virginia as of 10/29/03.]
