Memorial

From Colonial Families of the Southern States of America Second Edition by STELLA PICKETT HARDY; Pub. 1991

BOXLEY PARISH CHURCH near ALLINGTON CASTLE and MAIDSTONE, ENGLAND

The church has several plaques on the walls. The largest of these is about four  feet wide and six feet high. It has full relief columns in a dark stone on each side with broken pediment and urn at top and carved floral base and Wiat coat of arms at top all in limestone. The plaque is carved in marble and describes six generations of Wiats and reads as such.... "

"... GEORGE WIAT was Succeeded by his Eldest Son Sr FRANCIS WIAT twice GOVERNOR of VIRGINIA and married MARGARET Daughter of Sr SAMUEL SANDYS of OMBERSLY in WORCHESTERSHIRE. GEORGE WIAT left also HAWT WIAT who died Vicar of this Parish and hath Issue Living in VIRGINIA and left also ELINORA Married to Sr JOHN FINCH ..."

Jamestown

These words were found among the writings of Richard Hakluyt, one of Jamestown’s Founding Fathers:

“Wee shall by plantinge there inlarge the glory of the gospel, and from England plante sincere religion, and provide a safe and a sure place to receave people from all partes of the worlds that are forced to flee for the truthe of Gods worde."

"According to the writings of Captain John Smith, the first place of worship in the New World was a hastily-constructed shelter with a ship’s sail stretched across tree branches for a top and rails for the sides. Worshippers sat on benches made from un-hewn tree trunks and prayed at an altar made of a tree trunk nailed between two trees.

"The settlers at Jamestown had built a fort soon after arriving in Virginia, then erected a church building inside the fort. However, this structure burned in January 1608 and they built another. In 1617 they erected a building on the site where the present church stands. The first Representative Legislative Assembly convened in this building in July 1619, and this would have been the church building in which Rev. Haute Wyatt served after he came to Virginia in 1621. ... " (from History & Ancestors at Jamestown)

"Although it is often said that he served as rector of the church at Jamestown, there is no documentation for this, and serving as his brother's chaplain was more than enough reason for his presence in the fledgling colony."

biography

From Jamestown Society - Washington & Northern Virginia Company -- Biographies of Ancestors of Members April 2010

The Reverend Haute (Hawte) Wyatt came from a well known family in Kent, proud of their descent from William the Conqueror. He was the second son of Sir George Wyatt and Jane Finch. The name Hawte was his paternal Grandmother’s maiden name. The records show that he entered Queen’s College, Oxford in 1611.

Haute arrived in Virginia aboard the George in autumn 1621 together with his brother, Sir Francis Wyatt, the incoming governor. He is shown in the census as living in James City in February 1624 but is not listed in the muster in 1625. In another place he was mentioned as having served in Jamestown until his brother’s term was up in the autumn of 1625. His son John was born in England in 1630, and Haute is recorded as being vicar of Boxley in 1632.

He was married three times: 1. To Barbara Mitford in 1619 2. To Elizabeth who died in 1626 3. To Ann, who died in 1632.

He died and was buried 1 August 1638, survived by four children and his mother who administered his estate. Haute’s four children listed in a court filing in 1639, were shown with ages as: George 19, Edward 17, John 10 and Ann 7. The first two were born of Barbara and the last two of Ann.

his children

George and Edward probably came to Virginia with their uncle, Sir Francis, when he returned for his second term as governor, 1639-1642. George patented lands in James City County in 1645 and had married Susanna sometime before November 1659. He was residing in York County in 1661 and had died by January 1672 when his only son, Henry, sold 50 acres of land adjacent to the palisade at Middle Plantation which he had inherited from George. After marrying Alice, Henry is recorded as being a vestryman at St. Peters Church in New Kent County and died without children.

Edward is mentioned in the records in 1643 as providing a head-right for a Sir Francis Wyatt land patent. In 1646 he was administering an estate. In 1662 he was a joint recipient of a 370 acre land patent in Gloucester County and in 1663 he acquired 850 acres in York County and also another 1230 acres in Gloucester County on the Piankatank River. He married Jane, surname unknown, but possibly Conquest, and they had a son named Conquest Wyatt, who in turn had five sons and a daughter. Conquest resided in Petsworth Parish, Gloucester County, where he served variously as vestryman, justice of the peace, and sheriff. The records show that he had died by 1672.

From http://www.charlemagne.org/p72.htm

"Haute Wyatt came to Virginia in the "George" Ship in 1621 with his brother, Sir Francis Wyatt, governor of Virginia. Returned to England. At Boxley, the inscription on his tomb states that he had "issue" by Barbara Mitford living in America."

From http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~scperkins/hwyatt.html

"Youngest brother of Sir Francis Wyatt whom he accompanied to America. He served as Rector of the church at Jamestown 1621-1625 when he returned to England to become Rector of Boxley Parish, which position he held until his death."

From Wikipedia:

"Although Sir Francis left no direct descendants in what would later become the United States of America, his brother, the Reverend Haute Wyatt who had arrived in Virginia with Francis, is considered the common ancestor to those who claim kinship to the pre-1700 Wyatt family in the Americas."

From "National Society Colonial Dames XVII Century Application" for National #10271, Emmie Louise Tripp Hamilton, dated June 1971:

"Rev. Haute Wyatt came to Virginia on November 18, 1621 on the "George" and served as Rector of the Church at Jamestown, James City County, Virginia, 1621-1625. In 1625, he returned to England and became Vicar of Merston and Boxley Parishes, which he served until his death. He died in England."

"Gentleman's Magazine", 1831, Vol. 101, page 586 printed by J.B. Meales and Son, London, England:

"Rev. Haute Wyatt was a graduate of Oxford and there made a brilliant record. His portrait hangs in one of the college halls of Oxford. Haute took Holy Orders and was ordained in Canterbury Cathedral. He decided to come to Virginia in 1621 where he served as chaplain to his brother, Sir Franicis Wyatt, at that time governor of Virginia for his first term. In 1625, he returned to England and became rector of the Boxley Parish Church in Kent County, England."

"The Wyatts in England" by Leonardo Andrea:

"In 1621, Rev. Haute Wyatt came to Jamestown, Virginia. His oldest brother, Sir Franics Wyatt was twice governor of Virginia. Sir Francis brought his brother to Jamestown as his chaplain. Some think that the Rev. haute was a pastor of the Episcopal church in Jamestown, but this no evidence has been found listing him as a pastor in Jamestown. Rev. Haute Wyatt brought his oldest son, Edward, who two years old, with him to Jamestown, Virginia.

"He returned to England where he died in 1638. While in Virginia he took up large grants of land for his children. After his death, his children returned to Virginia. He is buried in the chancel at Boxley Church in Boxley, Kent, England. There is a mural tablet on the wall of Boxley Church in his memory."
