Joseph Scott1

b. say 1708, d. between 22 November 1748 and 20 January 1749
FatherJohn Scott2 d. c 1729
MotherJudith (?)2 d. Sep 1734
ChartsAncestry of Cherie Lee Phillips
     Joseph Scott was born say 1708 in New Kent County, Virginia.1 He was the son of John Scott and Judith (?)2 He married Sarah Mayo, daughter of William Mayo and Frances Gould, on 8 December 1734 in Goochland County, Virginia.3 He died between 22 November 1748 and 20 January 1749 in Amelia County, Virginia.1
     Joseph Scott is believed to be the son of Col. John and Judith Scott. John and Judith lived in St. Peter's Parish of New Kent County where six of their children were born from 1708 until 1718. Joseph was likely born before 1708 during a period when no baptisms were recorded.2
     On 22 February 1724/5, Joseph Scott "of New Kent County" secured a patent to 400 acres on Lickinghole Creek in Henrico (now Goochland) County. The same day an Edward Scott, possibly his brother, got land next door. Joseph Scott was living in New Kent County on 1 August 1726 when he bought three slaves from his brother, Edward Scott, that his wife had inherited.4
     In 1737 Joseph Scott was listed with 3 tithables in Amelia County including slave Cupid and Walter Clapton, undoubtedly an overseer.5
     In July 1737 Joseph Scott obtained a patent to 1,700 acres in Goochland (now Cumberland) County, on the branches of Angola and Great Guinea creeks. Josephs father-in-law, the county surveyor, undoubtedly saw that his daughter got some prime real estate. Joseph added 40 acres on Treasurers Run in Sept. 1739, 250 acres at Angola Creek in June 1740, and another 250 acres at Angola in Aug. 1745.6
     An unknown person gave 1600 acres of landand two slaves, Quasheba and Arabella Amelia County, Virginia, to his son-in-law and daughter Joseph Scott and Sarah Mayo in 1739.7
     Joseph sold 20 acres of the Lickinghole tract to Edmund Hodges 12 Feb. 1738/9, and deeded the remaining 380 acres on Lickinghole and the 40 acres on Treasurers Run to Henry Wood 20 Dec. 1743 for 90. Sarah relinquished her dower right in Amelia County 14 Jan. 1743/4.8
     In 1741 Amelia County called on Joseph Scott, John Tabb, and Richard Booker to confer with Goochland County about building a bridge across the Appomattox River. They concluded that a bridge at Genitoe was appropriate but the Goochland County justices disagreed. The August Court 1743 ordered Joseph Scott, William Archer, Thomas Tabb, and Richard Booker to look into building a bridge across the Appomattox River at William Bass's quarter. They concluded that bridge there would be appropriate and again approached Goochland County about sharing the construction costs. When Goochland declined, Amelia justices directed Scott and Tabb to prosecute a suit against Goochland.9
     Joseph Scott was an Amelia County justice in 1736, 1738-40, and 1742. The citizens undoubtedly respected him and in 1742 he ran for county burgess. After the "freeholders" of Amelia County elected Joseph Scott over Richard Jones to represent them in 1742, Joseph arrived in Williamsburg where, on 5 June 1742, the House declared the election void. The proceedings of the House describe the unfortunate circumstances that led them to conclude, "That the said Mr. Scott and Mr. Richard Jones, are each of them guilty of an Infringement of the Liberties of the People; a Misdemeanor and Breach of the Privileges of this House: And that therefore the Election of the said Mr. Scott, be made void."
     Evidently after Scotts election, Jones objected to the qualifications of some people who voted and contested Scotts victory. When Joseph went to the Amelia County courthouse to look at the list of freeholders who voted, Jones came in to do the same. Scott asked why he would make them both pay the expense of a recount when Jones did not have a chance of winning. Later the same day when they were at the courthouse for the militia muster, Scott offered to reimburse Jones the money he had already spent if Jones would drop his challenge to the election. Although Jones declined, he afterwards agreed that whoever won would pay the others expenses. When Jones sent a letter to the sheriff, dropping his challenge to the election, Scott paid him 3.19.
     When Edward Booker and others in Amelia County became aware of the arrangement, they complained to the House who referred the issue to the Committee of Privileges and Election that examined the matter with the cooperation of both Scott and Jones. After careful consideration, the Committee concluded that neither Scott nor Jones should represent Amelia County. Jones formally acknowledged his mistake, expressed his sorrow for what he did, and they released him from custody. Amelia County chose Samuel Cobbs the burgess in a new election.10
     Joseph Scott dated his will 22 November 1748 and it was recorded 20 January 1748/9 in Amelia County. It named his wife, Sarah, a coexecutor with his brother-in-law George Carrington Sr. He named three children in his will: John, William, and Judith Scott and implied he had others not named. George Carrington and Robert Jones inventoried his estate and listed the names of fifteen slaves. Releases recorded in Amelia County 24 March 1768 showed that he had two other daughters Sarah and Frances Scott. Some incorrectly believe a son was Joseph Scott because of many references in Amelia County to second cousins, Joseph Scott Jr. and Joseph Scott Sr. William Scott, Samuel Scott, Jesse Scott, and Thomas Burton witnessed Joseph's will.
     Joseph in his will provided for his son John Scott to inherit all of his property after he came of age or his daughters married. On 24 March 1768, both Isham Clements, who wed Sarah, and Alexander Walker, who wed Frances, released to John all right and title to the estate of Joseph Scott. Each received 100 pounds. Judith Scott quit claimed all right to her father's estate to John in August 1764. A witness to the releases of Alexander Walker and Judith Scott was Ann Scott. We do not know who she was though some believe she was another daughter.
     After the death of Joseph Scott, his widow, Sarah, married Robert Jones in Amelia County 16 June (bond) 1750. Thomas Nash was his security.11

William Mayo1

b. 4 November 1684, d. 20 October 1744
FatherJoseph Mayo2 b. 17 Aug 1656, d. Nov 1691
MotherElizabeth Hooper2 d. 20 May 1740
     William Mayo was baptized on 4 November 1684 in Poulshot, Wiltshire, England.3 He was the son of Joseph Mayo and Elizabeth Hooper.2 He married Frances Gould, daughter of Enoch Gould and Mary (?), on 11 December 1709 in St. Michael's parish.4 He married Ann Perratt circa 1732 in Virginia.5 He died on 20 October 1744 in Goochland County, Virginia, at age 59.1
     William Mayo was a surveyor. William surveyed the island of Barbados in 1717-21 and the map he drew is on file in the Kings College Library. William Byrd attested to its accuracy and in April 1722 the board of trade ordered its secretary to subscribe for the use of the Board, for one of the maps of Barbados, which Mr. Mayo is about to publish.6 He and Frances Mayo moved from Barbados to Virginia in December 1723. The Mayos rented land in Henrico County from Thomas Randolph in Dec. 1723 before moving on to Goochland County. Then Goochland County was all lands west of present-day Henrico and Chesterfield counties. He eventually surveyed 1,204 tracts that covered about 900 square miles - 3 times the size of present-day Goochland.6 He served a county justice, a surveyor, a major in the militia, and vestryman of St. James Parish in Goochland County.7
     William Mayo is perhaps best known for helping to survey the boundary between Virginia and North Carolina in 1728. The purpose of the survey was to resolve ongoing jurisdictional disputes between the two colonies, which originated in the two Carolina charters: the 1663 charter declared the boundary to be the 36 parallel, but the charter of 1665 placed the boundary about at 36 30, effectively adding a 30-mile strip of territory to North Carolina. Virginia preferred to ignore the second charter. Conflict began when settlers, to whom Virginia had granted land in the disputed territory, refused to pay quit rent taxes to that Colony. A more northerly border would also give North Carolina, a colony with no natural port, a route to ship tobacco without paying export duties to Virginia.
     In 1705 the Virginia House of Burgesses resolved to appoint a commission to cooperate with North Carolina to establish the boundary between the two colonies. Five years would elapse before the commission would begin. Yet cooperate, they would not. Both Colonies secretly undertook individual surveys, quibbled over official instructions, and found faults with the others readings. This survey was inconclusive.
     Both Virginia and North Carolina continued to grant land in the disputed territory. By 1714 the jurisdictional problems were so substantial that both the Virginia Governor Spotswood and the North Carolina Governor Charles Eden agreed on a compromise. Although the Crown approved the compromise, it was not until 1727 that both colonies appointed commissioners and surveyors. North Carolina appointed Christopher Gale, Edward Moseley, William Little, and John Lovick commissioners and Virginia appointed William Byrd, William Dandridge, and Richard Fitz-William. Surveyors for North Carolina were Samuel Swann and Edward Moseley, also a commissioner. William Mayo and Alexander Irvine, Professor of Mathematics at the College of William and Mary, represented Virginia. [Executive Journals of the Council of Colonial Virginia vol. 4, pp. 148-49] Among the assistants were Peter Jones, Thomas Short Sr., and Abraham Jones. Joseph Mayo briefly joined them.
     The survey began 5 March 1728/9, and by 14 March the team reached the Dismal Swamp. Surveyors and their 12 assistants struck out through the swamp and the commissioners and the others in the party went round. The two parties reunited two weeks later. After 6 weeks in the wilderness and running the line 73 miles, they suspended the survey until autumn. After continuing 20 Sept., they soon reached the Roanoke River. Having satisfied themselves about the eastern portion of the boundary, the North Carolina party turned back. But the Virginia commissioners had orders to continue, and so they did advancing the line as far as Peters Creek on the border of present-day Stokes County. Winter and the challenge of the Appalachians ended their progress.8
     Meanwhile, in 1732 the king had appointed Byrd to figure out the southern boundary of Lord Fairfax's property, the Northern Neck, and he selected Mayo chief engineer. When the surveyors completed their work, he combined their plats into a general map in a Masterly Manner. Modern surveys show his work was remarkably accurate. Not until 1738 was he paid 120 pounds.

     For tracing out the River Cohongorooton, now known as the Potomac River, with Robert Brooke in 1737, Mayo received 150 pounds.
     In April 1737, Mayo made the survey of the Virginia city of Richmond in 32 squares, 8 long and 4 wide, between the present Seventeenth and 25th Streets and from the River to Broad Street, dividing each square into 4 lots. William Byrd advertised them for sale in the Virginia Gazette April 22-27, 1737, for 7 Virginia currency. The ad reads as follows:

     Virginia Gazette
This is to give Notice, That on the North Side of James River, near the Uppermost Landing and a little below the Falls, is lately laid off by Major Mayo, a Town, called Richmond, with Streets 65 Feet wide, in a pleasant and healthy Situation and well supply'd with Springs of good Water. It lies near the Publick Warehouse at Shaccoe's, and in the midst of great Quantities of Grain, and all kind of Provisions. The Lots will be granted in Fee-Simple, on the Condition only of building a House in Three Years Time, of 24 by 16 Feet, fronting within 5 Feet of the Street. The Lots to be rated according to the Convenience of their Situation, and to be sold after this April General Court, by me. William Byrd.
     
According to a latter plat of the city, now in the Valentine Museum in Richmond, many early purchasers were Germans. The legislature incorporated Richmond in 1742.9
     During his lifetime Mayo secured patents for nearly 34,000 acres: 26,060 acres in Goochland, 1,060 acres in Henrico, and 6,778 acres in Amelia County.
     Most of Mayos patents were in what was then Goochland County. In 1730 he obtained a patent to 9,350 acres and in 1731 he got 2,850 more acres. From 1734 until his death, Mayo acquired by patent about 14,000 more acres in Goochland County: 3,000 acres in Aug. 1734, 800 acres in Sept. 1738, 400 acres in March 1739, 4,740 acres in Aug. 1740, 1,490 acres in Jan. 1741/2, 530 acres in March 1743, 1,100 acres in Aug. 1744, and 1,800 acres in June 1746. One Goochland County grant was in what is now southeastern Nelson County where they named Mayo Creek for him. In Sept. 1745 the Land Office issued a posthumous patent to 1,060 acres in Henrico County that included land Mayo's father had once owned.
     Mayo gave 1,600 acres on the south side of the James in Goochland County to William Randolph, son and heir of Thomas Randolph 15 June 1731. When he sold to John Perratt of the Island of Barbados for 110, 2,000 acres on the south side of the James River 17 Jan. 1735/6, Ann relinquished her dower right. John Perratt was Anns brother who left a will in Barbados naming sole child Ann Stegar of Goochland County and leaving a bed and bedding to his niece Rebecca Mayo, among other legatees (will dated 23 Aug. 1746 and proved 21 May 1747).
     Mayo paid tithes on 11 tithables in Goochland County in about 1732, and in 1737 Mayos two slaves, Cudjoe and Jack, who worked the Amelia County land, were listed as tithables.
     On 27 Feb. 1734/5 William Mayo secured a patent for 6,778 acres in what became Amelia County in 1735, 1,600 acres of which he deeded to John Dabney of Hanover County 12 Sept. 1734. Ann Mayo relinquished her dower right. Four years later, in 1738 Mayo made two other dispositions of 100 acres to John Townes and James Akin.10
     An unknown person , [R;Grantor2] sold 1600 acres of landand two slaves, Quasheba and Arabella Amelia County, Virginia, to son-in-law and daughter Joseph Scott and Sarah Mayo in 1739.11 He made a will dated 10 February 1743/44 in which he bequeathed nearly 10,000 acres to to his heirs. On 12 Sept. 1744, soon before his death, Mayo deeded 1,580 acres of his Amelia County patent to Thomas Tabb for 253. William died 20 Oct. 1744 and the court proved his will 20 Nov. 1744.12
