About John Blackiston

John Blakiston was born in 1669 and died in December 1733. In a deposition, made in 1726, he gives his age as 57 years and states that he has lived about 50 years “in these parts” (Kent Co., Lib. I. S., No. 10, fol. 44). He would therefore appear to have been born in St. Mayr’s County and to have been brought to Kent County by his father on the latter’s removal thither about 1676. In 1699 he was one of a jury to value two acres of land adjoining the parish Church of St. Paul’s, on the north side of Chester River and, in 1720, he and Ebenezer Blakiston occupied pew No. 25 in the parish church (Old Kent, pp. 347, 353). He inherited Boxley from his father, is recorded as possessing it in the Rent Roll of 1707, and devised it to his children in his will. John Blakiston died in December 1733. His will, dated 2 Dec. 1733, was proved 2 January following. In it he bequeaths his whole real and personal estate to his wife Hannah during widowhood; to his sons Vincent and Ebenezer, “my now dwelling plantation,” containing 100 acres, equally between them; to his son Prideaux Blakiston, the plantation whereon said son now dwells; to his three sons Thomas, William, and Michael, 150 acres part of Boxley; to his son John, with reaminder to the testator’s son Benjamin, 50 acres called Tolley’s Chance; to his two daughters Mary Covington and Sarah Blakiston, two seats in St. Paul’s Church, with 2000 lb. Tobacco to Sarah at her mother’s decease. 2 January 1733/4, Hannah Blakiston, widow of the deceased, declares that she abides by the will. John Blakiston and Hannah his wife had issue (order of birth uncertain):
