About Bartholomew W Stovall, Sr.
The birth of Bartholomew Stovall is recorded four times in the Quaker records of Guildford, and can be found in the Library of the Religious Society of Friends, Friend's House, Euston Road, London, England, N.W.L. The manuscript is located in the Library under "Digests of Births for the Quarterly Meeting of Sussex and Surrey" and has the following entries:
Stouell Bartholomew, son of George and Jone, Allbery, 1665.6.24 Guildford
Stouell Bartholomew, son of George and Joane, Albery, 1665.6.24 Guildford
Stowell Bartholomew, son of George and Jone, Albery, 1665.6.24 Guildford
Stowell Bartholomew, son of George and Joan, Allbury, 1664.6.24 Guildford
The Quaker numerical designation of the month followed the prevalent English practice of regarding as the forst day of the year the Feast of Annunciation to the Virgin Mary of the coming Incarnation. Consequently, March was the first not the third month of the year, and the sixth month was August, not June. Thus, Bartholomew was born 24 August 1665.
On 6 August 1693, Henrico Co., Virginia, a "Lycense for Marriage" was issued to Bar. Stovall and Ann Burton. The "Annals of Henrico Parish and Old St. John's Church", p.226, record the marriage of Bar. Stovall with Ann Burton, 8 August 1693. The old church was torn down about 1743, and a new St. John's Church was built at 24th and Broad Streets in Richmond, VA. The only trace left of the old St. John's Church is a plaque on a marker in a cornfield at Curle, VA about 5 miles from the present church. The lumber from the old church was stored in the basement of the existing church and is used periodically to make repairs.
All episcopal burials prior to 1741 are said to have been made at Jamestown, Virginia. If this is true, then Bartholomew and Ann are buried in the cemetery at Jamestown.
