About John Blackman

William & John Blackman and their trail to Sampson & Johnson Counties, N.C. by Donald E. Collins Sometime before 29 Nov. 1708 John Blackman married Elizabeth Goode. She appears only twice in Virginia records, first when "Elizabeth Blackman" is willed 2,000 pounds of tobacco, and second on 2 Nov. 1713 when "Elizabeth, wife of (John) Blackman relinquished her dower right". Elizabeth was a daughter of John Goode and his second wife Ann Bennett. She (Ann) is said to have come from Holland. John Goode emigrated to Virginia by way of Barbados before 1660. His plantation lay a short distance north of the Blackmans where Goode's Creek (then called Stony) enters the James River. (Near where highway I-95 now crosses the James on the south side of the river). Goode's genealogy is traced in G. Brown Goode's Virginia Cousins.

John Goode was involved in Bacon's Rebellion in 1676 and attempted to dissuade Nathaniel Bacon from continuing his revolt. The conversation between John Goode and Bacon is frequently mentioned in histories of the rebellion and is published in its entirety in Virginia Cousins. His grandson Bennett Goode married Martha Jefferson, sister of Peter Jefferson.
