About Colonel Augustine Warner

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Augustine_Warner_Sr._

In the winter of 1642, Augustine Warner I arrived in Jamestown with twelve new settlers for the Virginia Colonies. For bringing these colonists to the new frontier, Warner was given a “head Grant” of 600 acres in Gloucester, Virginia. He eventually expanded his acreage at his new plantation, WARNER HALL, to several thousand acres prior to his death in 1674.

During his life he was Justice of York, Justice of Gloucester, and a member of the King’s Council in Virginia. Augustine Warner was the great, great grandfather of George Washington, and an ancestor of Robert E. Lee. Queen Elizabeth II is a direct descendant of Augustine Warner I through the Bowes-Lyon family and the Earl of Strathmore. Warner Hall is referred to as the home of the Queen’s American ancestors.


Born of English gentry and came to Virginia around 1628. Given the first land grant north of the York River. Warner Hall was built shortly after the land grant of 1635. They had a daughter Sarah who married Lawrence Townley and became the ancestress of General Henry Lee (1756-1818) who married Ann Hill, daughter of Charles Carter (1773-1829), who in turn were the parents of General Robert E. Lee.


Augustine Warner II (1642 – 1681) inherited Warner Hall upon the death of his father in 1674, and further developed the plantation house and property. Augustine Warner II, like his father, was a member of the King’s Council and also served as Speaker of The House of Burgesses in Williamsburg. Augustine Warner II (1642-1681) inherited Warner Hall upon the death of his father in 1674, and further developed the plantation house and property.

Augustine Warner II died at the age of 39 on June 19, 1681, predeceasing his wife, Mildred Reade Warner, who he had married by 1666.

In 1676, Nathaniel Bacon came to Gloucester after burning Jamestown and made Warner Hall his headquarters. It was at Warner Hall that Bacon invited the “Oath of Fidelity” of his fellow countrymen.

All of Augustine Warner II ‘s sons died young and when Augustine himself died in 1681 at the age of 39, he left three daughters, Mary, Mildred and Elizabeth. Mary went on to marry John Smith, of Purton, on the York, and their son, Augustine Smith was said to have been one of the Knights of the Golden Horseshoe who accompanied Governor Spotswood on his famous expedition across the Blue Ridge Mountains in 1716.

Mildred Warner married Lawrence Washington and their son, Augustine, married Mary Ball. Augustine and Mary became the proud parents of George Washington, who was named after his great-grandfather, George Reade, founder of Yorktown. Perhaps the most recognized patriot in American history, General George Washington led the Colonies to independence from the British in the Revolution of 1776. General George Washington continued his role as a great patriot in 1789 and become the first President of the United States of America. In a famous funeral phrase, Henry Lee declared that Washington was “first in war, first in peace, and first in the hearts of his countrymen.”

Elizabeth, the third daughter of Augustine Warner II, became the wife of John Lewis and inherited Warner Hall. Their son, John Lewis II (1702-1754) was a member of His Majesty’s Council, and was prominent in Gloucester County. The Lewis Family occupied Warner Hall for generations and members of the family immigrated to all parts of the United States. Lewis family descendants built a number of important Virginia homes including Belle Farm, Eagle Point, Abingdon and Severn Hall. Colonel Fielding Lewis of Belle Farm, was the grandson of Elizabeth and John Lewis. Col. Lewis was married twice, first to Catherine Washington, and after her death, to Elizabeth (Betty) Washington, sister of George. One of Fredericksburg’s most beautiful and historic homes, Kenmore, was built by Fielding Lewis for his wife Betty.

As the Warner – Lewis family grew over the years so did the size of the house. From the time of Augustine Warner II, to his daughter Elizabeth and her husband John Lewis, the family and plantation prospered. Warner Hall came to consist of a large center structure with two separate detached brick dependencies. The east building was the plantation kitchen and laundry, and the west building was the tutor’s quarters, plantation schoolroom and shipping office.

In 1740, a fire destroyed the original 17th century Warner home, but the Lewis family rebuilt their residence on the same foundations. The property remained in the Lewis family until the 1830’s. In 1849, the center section of the original Lewis house suffered a devastating fire, leaving the two brick east and west dependencies and out buildings. Before the turn of the century, the Cheney family acquired the property and built the present wood-framed Colonial Revival mansion that was popular in that era, on the original foundation and of the same floor plan as the Lewis house.

Listed by both the National Register of Historic Places and the Virginia Historic Landmarks Commission, The Inn at Warner Hall continues to be of major architectural and genealogical significance in American history. Warner Hall has long been considered one of the premier properties in the Virginia Tidewater area. The property is located 3 ½ miles from U.S. Route 17, and Colonial Williamsburg and the Hampton Roads area are just 30 minutes away. The State capital of Richmond and the Norfolk Harbor are approximately a one hour drive.

————————

Augustine Warner (November 28, 1610 – December 26, 1674), was born in Norwich, Norfolk, to Thomas Warner and Elizabeth Sotherton. He was the progenitor of the Augustine Warner Family, who arrived in Virginia in 1628 at the age of seventeen, one of a group of thirty-four brought in by Adam Thoroughgood.

The Warner family settled along the Piankatank River. As some of the Warners moved into Maryland Augustine Warner I, who received the earliest known land grant in Gloucester in 1635, was most influential in establishing a Gloucester settlement, later to become Gloucester County by 1651. Augustine's wife Mary Townley immigrated to Virginia in 1638 by The Charles River Company. As Augustine's acquisition of land increased, so did his political influence in the area. He became important in government and a man of respect in the county. In 1642 Augustine Warner's wife gave birth to their second child on July 3, Augustine II.

By the 1650's, Augustine Warner had acquired over one thousand acres through land grants spanning Virginia, it has been rumored that he was granted nearly 33,333 acres total throughout Gloucester County. This may have included land covering the entire North side of the Severn River, out to the Mobjack Bay Finally, he became politically influential. Captain Warner was a member of the King's Council of the Royal Governor of Virginia until his death. This included being Justice and Burgess of York and Gloucester Counties between 1652 and 1658. This enabled him to advise the Governor on many important matters. He was named Speaker of the House and known as Speaker Warner at this time. He became Captain of the Virginia Militia and received commission from the Governor "Gentlemen." He aided the Dutch with the attacks on the Virginia Fleet of Hampton Roads. Augustine Warner was also famous for giving handsome service of communion plate to Abingdon Parish as well. He was considered an important man of the county as "Mister" was a term of respect. "Ordinary people had no handle on their names."

Augustine Warner died in 1674, at sixty-three, and was succeeded at Warner Hall by his only son, Augustine Warner, Jr. (1642-1681). After his English education in London and at Cambridge, the younger Augustine Warner returned to Virginia, and soon, by 1666, became a member of the House of Burgesses, and then Speaker of the House in 1676. In 1677 he took his seat on the King's Council, but his career was cut short by his early death in 1681 at the age of thirty-nine.

Besides the son Augustine Warner the second, the first Augustine Warner (1611-1674) had at least two daughters. One married David Cant, and the other, Sarah, married Lawrence Townley, and was the ancestor of General Robert E. Lee.


It is recorded that the second Augustine Warner (1642-1681) had three sons, all of whom died unmarried, and three daughters, who inherited the Warner property and left huge progenies.

The three were; Mary Warner, who married in 1680 John Smith of Purton, Mildred Warner, who married about 1690 Laurence Washington, ancestors of George Washington, and Elizabeth Warner, who married about 1691 John Lewis, and kept the Warner Hall house itself in the division of the Warner properties after the brothers’ deaths. Elizabeth and John Lewis were the grandparents of Fielding Lewis, who married first George Washington’s cousin and second his sister, both ladies also being grandchildren of Mildred Warner. Additionally Elizabeth and John Lewis were the ancestors of Meriwether Lewis of the Corps of Discovery fame.

Warner Hall stayed in the eldest male line of the Lewis family, through a succession of eldest sons named Warner Lewis, until 1834, when it was finally sold by a daughter of the last of them, another Elizabeth Lewis.

Warner Hall is still known by this name and the Lewis descendants became known as the Warner Hall Lewises. A non-profit DNA Project LEWIS Surname DNA Project is actively seeking descendants from this paternal line. In some cases a scholarship may be offered.

Elizabeth was the daughter of Augustine Southerton (b. 1553) and Ann Peck (who were married 22 Sep 1572). She was born about 1582 and died around 1629 at the age of 47.

86. Augustine WARNER 1, 2, 3 was born on 28 SEP 1611 in England. He died on 24 DEC 1674 in Warner Hall, Gloucester Co., Virginia. He married Mary TOWNLEY before 13 MAY 1638.

There are many family trees on the web where the argument is made that the parents of Augustine were Thomas Warner of Hoveton and Norwich, England, and his wife Elizabeth Sotherton. Those that cite a source, cite an article by Mary McCurdy in The Virginia Magazine of History and Biography, Vol. 81, No. 3 (July 1973) as the source of this information. In that article, Mrs. McCurdy states that she has no clue as to the parents of Augustine. Lacking anyone else, she picked Thomas and Elizabeth as good possibilities because they were in the right location at the right time. But she has no evidence to confirm it. She herself states "I have accordingly been looking at the most obvious sources to see if any Norfolk sources have a clue to his parentage, but I find none, though there is ... [a] family of Norwich, which I should much like him to come from." She then goes on to publish ancestor charts for both Thomas Warner and Elizabeth Sotherton with Augustine in them but uses a dotted line for the connection.

87. Mary TOWNLEY 1, 2, 3 was born on 13 MAY 1614 in Stone Edge, Lancashire, England. She died on 11 AUG 1662 in Warner Hall, Gloucester Co., Virginia. [Parents] !Information Sources:- Denise Fischer (DeniseCF@AOL.com) !emigrated to Virginia 1634

GENEALOGIES OF VIRGINIA FAMILIES FROM TH

GENEALOGIES OF VIRGINIA FAMILIES FROM THE VIRGINIA MAGAZINE OF HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY, Vol. V, 1981, "The Townleys and Warners of Virginia and Their English Connecitons", by Mary Burton Derrickson McCurdy: Augustine Warner, gentleman of Norwich. It can be seen, in the light of Dugdale [THE VISITATION OF THE COUNT PALATINE OF LANCASTER MADE IN THE YEAR 1664/5 BY SIR WILLIAM DUGDALE, KNIGHT, edited by the Rev. F. R. Raines] thathis transportation into Virginia by Adam Thoroughgood was due to his Norfolk County origina; for Adam Thoroughgood, gentleman, was baptized in 1603 at St. Batolph's the parish church of Grimston, County of Norfolk, England ... Their two families may well have been acquainted before Warner came to Virginia with Thoroughgood in the Hopewell in 1628 ... Warner was seventeen *He was born September 28, 1611, as inferred from the statement on his tombstone at Warner Hall that he died December 24, 1674, aged 63 years 2 months 26 days.* He acquired his first patent of land, 250 acres called "Pynie Neck" at the New Poquoson on the Bay, October 12, 1635, when he was twenty-four. This was for the transportation of five persons, unnamed, and it is noted that the grant of 250 acres was later renewed and 200 more added. The reference is clearly to his patent of May 13, 1638, for 450 acres designated in the same way and with three coundaries identical, due for his own personal adventure, the adventure of his wife Mary Warner, and transportation of seven persons ... It would seem a proper inference that between 1635 and this date in 1638 Warner had returned to England, married Mary Townley, and brought her to Virginia. ... In the same Visitation volume [THE VISITACION OF NORFFOLK, MADE AND TAKEN BY WILLIAM HERVEY, CLARENCIEUX KING OF ARMS, ANNO 1563, edited by Walter Rye], however, we noticed in the Steward pedigree that a Thomas Warner of Hofton (i.e., Hoveton) had as his wife Elizabeth Sotherton, whose father was Augustine Sotherton of Hellesdon near Norw ich and whose grandfather in turn was Augustine Steward of Norwich. It seemed distinctly possible that this Thomas Warner might have had a son named Augustine, a unique Warner name. ... Mary Townley Warner and Augustine Warner first resided in Virginia at the New Poquoson. From there they moved to the Severn River on Mobjack Bay in what is now Gloucester County (Augustine Warner's first grant of land there was dated January 18, 1642/3) and Warner Hall was built on the site still so designated. ... Finally, what were the conditions in Norfolk and Lancashire which encouraged Augustine Warner and the Townleys, members of the gentry, to leave their ancient homeland for the wilds of Virginia? Aside from the inducements offered by the merchant class in Norwich to open up new markets, there was plague, the Thirty Years War, poverty, special taxation brought on by the war and in Norwich also by the plague, and, in Warner's case, there was no family seat to inherit when at seventeen, the age of decision as to schooling for a profession or apprenticeship for a trade, he set out on the Virginia adventure. After several years he must have decided that opportunities were greater in Virginia than in Norwich, and he took his Townley wife back there to establish himself in the New World, where his inherited abilities made him a leader in colonization, government, and commerce. A VIRGINIA PLANTAGENET, by Sarah Vowell Daingerfield Stirling, 1949: Colonel Augustine Warner, who settled in Virginia about 1628, first in York County and later in Gloucester County, on the estate which came to be known as Warner Hall. he was burgess for York in 1652 and for Cloucester in 1655, and from 1659 to 1667 was a member of the Council of the Colony. he died in 1674 and was buried at Warner Hall. SELDEN AND KINDRED OF VIRGINIA, by Edna Mae Seldon: Col. Augustine Warner (1611-1674) came to Virginia between 1628 and 1635. he was of the British army and Colonial Council in Virginia. He died in 1674 and was buried at Warner Hall. His wife was Mary ___ (1614-1662). The Warners settled first in Elizabeth City Co. and then moved to Gloucester Co. in 1635 where Augustine had the first land grant of the county. Floucester Co. was formed from Pumunkey, one of the original eight shires into which Virginia was divided. The Warner family is known to have lived at "Chesake" often spelled "Cheese Cake" and Chikiak", situated on the south-side of the Piankitank River, where Augustine Warner received a patent for land. This was the site of the "Chiskiak" Indians in Gloucester Co. The remnents of the tribe had settled there after being driven from their ancient site on the York River.
