notes

Cicely Jordan Ferrar's first marriage is inferred from circumstantial evidence. In the census taken in 1623,[2] and also in the 1624/5 Muster, a child, Temperance Baley, is shown living with Cicely Jordan and her family. The 1624 muster provides the additional information that the child was "borne in Virginia" in 1617. Temperance Baley is mentioned as an adjacent landholder in the 1620 patent of Cicely's husband Samuel Jordan,[3] proving that the child had ownership of her land by the time she was three years old, and therefore must have been the sole heir of her (deceased) father. Since she lived with Cicely, and no guardian's record has been found, the conclusion is that Temperance was probably Cicely's daughter by a first marriage to the unknown Baley.

--------------------------------------------------------------

Temperance Bailey born 1617 and died 1651.

After King James of Scotland mounted the English throne, he gave his approval for attempts to be made to colonize the New World, and granted charters to the newly organized London Company. The London Company offered each subscriber who would pay twelve pounds and twelve shillings the following: "Lord of 200 acres of land which would be given to him and his heirs forever." Several members of the Bailey family held large shares in this company. The fact that Temperance Bailey, at age 3, had 200 acres of land in her name, might have been her inheritance from her deceased father. Patent to Temperance Bailey, Sept. 20, 1620. The land of John Rolfe and Pocahontas, on the south side of the James River, bordered that of Samuel Jordan, Temperance Baley (Bailey), and Capt. Woodlief in 1620.

_________________________________

She was named for the Governers wife George Yardley had a wife named Temperance West". Thomas contracted malaria and died in 1619. He was a landowner recieving 200 which he called Bailey's Point. Temperance inherited this 20 Sept. 1620. Upon Temperances death 10 Oct. 1652 land went to Richard Cocke

From "Early Virginia Ancestors of Our Cox-Cocke Family and Their Colonial Cousins":

Temperance Bailey was born about 1617. She was probably the daughter of Sisley or Ciceley (Reynolds) Jordan by a first husband named Bailey. After King James of Scotland mounted the English Throne, he gave his approval for colonizing the New World and granted charters to the newly organized London Company. 200 acres of land was given to each subscriber, his heirs forever, who would pay twelve pounds and twelve shillings for shares in this Company. Several members of the Bailey Family held large shares and the fact that Temperance Bailey, at age three, had 200 acres of land in her name may suggest that this was her inheritance from her deceased father.

Patent to Temperance Bailey, September 20, 1620. The land of John Rolfe and Pocahontas on the south side of the James River bordered that of Samuel Jordan, Temperance Bailey and Captain Woodlief in 1620. At age 6, Temperance Bailey was living at Jourdan's Journey, Charles City County in 1623 and was listed in the muster of William Farrar and Mistress Sisley Jordan.

About 1632 according to minutes of the Colonial Council, Richard Cocke married the widow of John Browne and was appointed trustee and guardian of the Browne children. On October 10, 1652, a land patent re-issued to Richard Cocke included 100 acres of land due by patent to Temperance Bailey, September 20, 1620. It would seem that Richard Cocke inherited 100 acres due Temperance Bailey because she was his wife, widow of John Browne, deceased.

    

Notes for THOMAS COCKE: Thomas was the eldest son of Richard, succeeded to his fathers estate and lived at Bremo. He was one of the members of the Henrico Co. court in 1680 and High Sheriff from that year to 1688.

The original seats of the family were "Bremor" or "Bremo", and Malvern Hills, both belonging to the same estate, and located on the James River, about fifteen miles below Richmond. The manor house, which was probably built by Richard Cocke, and which was occupied by his descendents for nearly two hundred years, is still standing.
