About William Hooker, of Chowan, NC

from http://boards.ancestry.com/thread.aspx?mv=flat&m=746&p=surnames.hooker

WILLIAM HOOKER, SR. is believed to have had two wives: BRIDGETT FOYE who died ca. 1690/91 and ANN ___________ who died ca. 1700.

Of his daughters, ANN HOOKER is believed to have married a ROBERT EVANS; BRIDGETT HOOKER married THOMAS MANN, JR., MARGARET HOOKER married a LEWIS, possibly JACOB LEWIS, but of this I am not confident; JANE HOOKER married FRANCIS BROWN; and ELIZABETH HOOKER married twice, first to SAMUEL SISEMORE and 2nd to __________ SESSUMS.

WILLIAM HOOKER SR. is probably the WILLIAM HOOKER who listed in the Militia for Surry County, Virginia in 1687. WILLIAM is probably the son of yet an earlier WILLIAM HOOKER and the line may trace back to the early Jamestown, Virginia settlement where a WILLIAM HOOKER received a land grant on James City Island in 1657. However, it should be noted that there were other early HOOKER settlers in Virginia too including THOMAS HOOKER who was transported in 1643, ROBERT HOOKER in 1653, and EDWARD HOOKER who patented land on James City Island in 1683, among others.

WILLIAM HOOKER, Sr.’s Will and Testament was written 8 January 1716/17 and recorded in the October 1717 term of Chowan Court. Letters of Execution were dated 14 July 1718. The document lists sons WILLIAM HOOKER, Jr. (eldest) and GODFREE HOOKER; daughters ANN EVANS, BRIDGETT MANN, MARGARET LEWIS, JANE BROWN, and ELIZABETH SISEMORE; son-in-law SAMUEL SISEMORE; and grandson WILLIAM LEWIS. Witnesses were WM CRAWFORD and FRANCIS BROWN.
