About Joseph D. Vick

Joseph Vick, (born - Abt 1640 & died - Abt 1695) - Almost all Vick's are descendents of this Joseph Vick. In the search for Vick family orgins, our earliest find was a Flemish weaver, Richard Veke, in Kings Stanley in 1270. The original family name was Leveske, an old French surname meaning Bishop, In classic English Fashion, the French name mutated into Le Veck, then Veck and eventually Vick.

The centuries passed, and in 1640 Joseph Vick was born in Kings Stanley, a younger son of Richard Vick (b. - abt 1604). By this time, foreign competition had nearly ended the weaving trade, and a younger son had little choice except to find another means of supporting himself. So young Joseph headed for Bristol, 30 miles away, and took passage to Virginia, landing in Isle of Wight County, across the James River from Jamestown by about 1675. He obviously came with money as he quickly purchased land and began farming (his land is now in Southampton County, VA). His neighbors included Tom Joyner from Dorse and Anthony Fulgham from Cheshire (by way of Barbados), both also from England.
