About Keziah Bryant

 Deyo, William L. The Monteith family and the Potomac Indians. (Colonial Beach, Virginia: DeJoux Publications, c2000).


Ja11 Keziah Arroyah Ja11 Keziah Arroyah was the daughter of (Ja12) Wahanganoche and possibly an unnamed daughter of Ka-Okee and granddaughter of Kocoum and Pocahontas Born: about 1640 Married: Richard or Thomas Bryant/Brian


The connection between Bryant, Keziah Arroyah and Elinor Bryant who married Robert Duncan and had Elinor, Mary and Anne Duncan is established by two deeds. There are other records establishing the basic relationships of different lines descending from Keziah Arroyah. There was also another daughter Phylis Gallop who married Thomas Monteith.Richard Bryant and Keziah Arroyah had issue: (Br10-1) Dr. Richard Bryan married Ann Meese/Amees, daughter of Henry Meese and Mary C (Br10-1-1) Dr. Joseph Richard Bryan b. ?1687.

Virginia, (Br10-6) Elizabeth Bryan, b/d in Stafford Co. Virginia, An examination of the Powatan and Patawomack pedigrees shown below, which are based mor on suppositions made on the Indian ideas of matriarchical inheritance of chiefdom and the polygamous rights of chiefs shows that there was strong inbreeding. What characteristics were deemed decisive for selecting the original matriarch of the succession or choosing the order of succession among her daughters is not exactlly known, but doubtless brains and beauty and the ability to bear strong braves were all important factors. Brains in the sense of being very observant as a botanist and homeopath as well as a natural psychologist in raising children to be good, brave and diligent and advise their spouses well in tribal affairs would certainly all have been considered important. A chief had to be the son of a matriarch and would choose his favorite wife (the one he kept having children by) from the highest ranking princesses, who might be his maternal cousins or even sisters, his other wives often had only one child by him. Only the chief of the Powatan federation could have several wifes and the chiefs of the member tribes could have two wives. The chief of the federation appointed the chiefs of the member tribes, often from among his brothers, nephews or uncles. The inbreeding had the advantage of weeding out the sickly genes quickly, and if a strong and healthy chief was chosen the chances of him having numerous strong and healthy children was rather high. As the weaker braves fell in battle the number of women in the tribe was generally higher. So the women are likely to have had a lot to say about tribal affairs at least behind the scenes. A wise matriarch would have to recognize that the strength of the tribe and hence the continuance of its existence depended on all women of child bearing age having children. And so the great defender of the tribe also became the prize of all its women, and the favorite wife probably had the decision on which other wife he went to bed with when. A wise man always takes advice from his favorite wife, who probably could count the days of the month very well and kept a tally on their periods: only as much hanky-panky as was good for the tribe.Powatan PedigreeThe following Powatan Pedigree is based in part upon known history recorded in colonial Virginia and in part on assumptions from the known laws of Powatan Royal succession, which was a matriarchically inherited right of succession of eldest sons preceeding and daughters following the sons in succession. The matriarchical law of succession had probably been established for several generations. A comparison with other native American tribes might help to guess when this began, so if it were common in all the Americas it would go back to the time of their ancestors crossing the Berings Straits. If it was only peculiar to the tribes of Virginia and the Carolinas it might support the Mormon legend that the ten lost tribes of Israel crossed the Atlantic to America, if any similarities in DNA could be found between native Americans and Jews, since Hebrew nationality inherited maternally.

Pocahontas and John Rolfe

Po16. possibly Nemattanon alias Don Luis de Velasco, Chief Powatan, taken by the Spanish when he was young and returned many years later. b about 1545 c 1590. He had 3 brothers Opitchapan, Opechancanough (married Cleopatra, sister of Pocahontas), and Catataughm1unknown, Princess who was probably either a sister or more likely the daughter of a maternal aunt or granddaughter of a maternal great aunt and daughter of one of the chiefs of a tribe of the realm. The as yet unnamed matriarch of this dynasty would have been born about 1550 had 4 sons as follows and succeeded in Reign as Chief Powatan, leaving a a realm of six tribes Po15Wahunsenacawh, Sachem, Chief Powatan. Powhatan was both the name of a single tribe and their chief, he inherited a realm of six tribes and form a confederation of a total of 30 between 1597 and 1607. b about 1575, d 1618. He made his first capital at Werowomocomo. He made his next capital at Orapakes, located about 50 miles (80 km) west in a swamp at the head of the Chickahominy River, near the modern-day interchange of Interstate 64 and Interstate 295. Sometime between 1611 and 1614, he moved further north to Matchut, in present-day King William County on the north bank of the Pamunkey River, near where his younger brother Opechancanough ruled at Youghtanund. By the time Smith left Virginia in 1609, the fragile peace was already beginning to fray. Soon conflict led to the First Anglo-Powhatan War, and further English expansion beyond Jamestown and into Powhatan's territory. Two of his subtribes, the Kecoughtan and the Paspahegh, were effectively destroyed at the beginning of this war. Powhatan sent the cackarous Nemattanew to operate against the English on the upper James River, though they held out at Henricus. With the capture of Pocahontas in 1613, Powhatan sued for peace. It came about after her alliance in marriage in 1614 to John Rolfe, a leading tobacco planter. Po14-1a son. Po14-2a son.

There additional information obtained from the sacred oral history of the Mattaponi Tribe. See her biography. m11610 Ja13 Kocoum Po13Ka-Okee b about 1609/10Her existence was probably kept secret by the Patawomecks for the safety of the child. Some of the families who carry the traditional descent from Pocahontas and Kocoum are: Martin, Threlkeld, Porch, Sullivan, Fugate, Roberson, Curtis, Limbrick, Newton, Green, Butler, Courtney, Humphries, Brown, Jett, Peyton/Payton, Chilton, Burton, Hudson, Jones, Cox, Grigsby, Bates, Berry, Kitchen, Fines, Chinn, McGuire, Payne, Rollow, and many others. m1?Theodore Pettus/Pettis. He was likely a brother of Col. Thomas Pettus, who had a sister named “Christian” and owned land that adjoined that of Chief Wahanganoche which was the later home of Ka-Okee’s daughter, Christian. Col. Thomas Pettus did have a brother, Theodore, who came to Virginia in 1623 and was still in Virginia near the end of 1626, when he made a testimony in court. It is important to note that the famous Matoaka portrait of Pocahontas was found in England in a Pettus home! Col. Thomas Pettus’ uncle, William Pettus, married Elizabeth Rolfe, the daughter of John Rolfe’s own granduncle, Henry Rolfe! Ja12-1Christian Pettus, born about 1636 or 1637, known to have had much Indian blood.

Thomas Maddison is said to have been the son of Isaac Maddison, who lived for a while at the Patawomeck Village. Rebecca Pettis may have been the same Rebecca who was the first wife of John Meese, her cousin of Indian blood, and would explain why the later Mees/Mays family of Stafford County claimed a descent from Pocahontas.. ?Ja12xx who married Wahanganoche see below. This marriage is the basis of the Patawomeck Tribe and its strong connection to the Pamunkey Indians. m2John Rolfe was born in Heacham, Norfolk, England as the son of John Rolfe and Dorothea Mason, and was baptized on May 6, 1585. Rolfe was one of a number of businessmen who saw the opportunity to undercut Spanish imports by growing tobacco in England's new colony at Jamestown, in Virginia. Rolfe had somehow obtained seeds to take with him from a special popular strain then being grown in Trinidad and South America, even though Spain had declared a penalty of death to anyone selling such seeds to a non-Spaniard. He married first Sarah Hacker, who embarkt for Virginia but died in Bermuda with their child, Bermuda. After finally settling in Virgina in 1610, although his first wife and child had died, Rolfe began his long-delayed work with tobacco. The native tobacco from Virginia was not liked by the English settlers, nor did it appeal to the market in England. However, Rolfe wanted to introduce sweeter strains from Trinidad, using the hard-to-obtain Spanish seeds he brought with him. In 1611, Rolfe is credited with being the first to commercially cultivate Nicotiana tabacum tobacco plants in North America; export of this sweeter tobacco beginning in 1612 helped turn the Virginia Colony into a profitable venture. Rolfe named his Virginia-grown strain of the tobacco "Orinoco". When Rolfe married Pocahontas, Powhatan gave the newlyweds property that included a small 20' x 40' brick house just across the James River from Jamestown. Pocahontas and John Rolfe never lived on the land, which spanned thousands of acres to the River. In 1619, Rolfe married Jane Pierce. They had a daughter, Elizabeth, in 1620. Elizabeth died in 1635 at the age of 15. John Rolfe, who had been living in or near Bermuda Hundred, died suddenly in 1622, but it is unknown in what manner. A photograph of the "Sedgeford Portrait," said to represent Pocahontas and her son. Po11-2Thomas Rolfe, born at Smith's Plantation in Jamestown, Virginia. After growing up in England, on 13 September 1632 and in 1635 after Elizabeth's death Rolfe returned to Virginia, leaving his daughter with his cousin Anthony Rolfe. Rolfe became a powerful leader in the tribe his grandfather was the leader of, Powhatan. He served in the English military until 1675. In 1675, Rolfe died at the age of 59 or 60, and was survived by his wife and child. m1Elizabeth Washington, at St James's church, Clerkenwell, London. Elizabeth died shortly after Anne’s birth, Po11-2-1Anne Rolfe was born in 1633. In 1659, Anne Rolfe married Peter Elwin (1623-1695), of Thurning, Norfolk, England, and left descendants. m2During the time of Rolfe's leadership in the tribe, he met and married Jane Poythress. Po11-2-2His only child by his second wife, called Jane Rolfe, was born on October 10, 1650, and m in 1675 Colonel Robert Bolling the son of John and Mary (Carrie) Bolling. He was born at Tower Street, All Hallows, Barking Parish, in London on December 26, 1646. His father John, was one of the Bollings of Bolling Hall, near Bradford, England. Robert's ancestry could be traced to Robert Bolling, Esquire, who died in 1485 and was buried in the family vault in the church of Bradford. According to Bolling family oral tradition, the original deBolling family was Norman French, and came to Barking Parish with William the Conqueror. October 2, 1660, at the age of fourteen, Bolling arrived in the colony of Virginia. In 1681, after his first wife died, Col. Bolling married his second wife Anne Stith, daughter of John Drury and Jane (Gregory) Stith. They had the following nine children together. He died on July 17, 1709, and was buried on his plantation Kippax, in Prince George Co., Virginia, where his tomb still stands. However, in 1858, his remains were removed from Kippax to the Bolling mausoleum at Blandford Cemetery in Petersburg, Virginia erected by his great grandson. Po11-2-2-1 John Bolling (born January 26, 1676) and many Americans claim descent from Rolfe,He was an ancestor to Edith Bolling Wilson, Nancy Reagan, and John McCain.. Po11-2-2-2 Rebecca Bolling.Po15-2Opechancanough, Chief of the Youghtanund TribePo15-3Opitchapam officially became Chief Powatan upon the death of his elder brother, Wahunsunacock, in 1618; however, the regime now effectively belonged to Opechancanough, the youngest brother. By starting the Indian Massacre of 1622, and attacks in 1644, he attempted to force the English from Virginia. These attempts met with strong reprisals from the English, ultimately resulting in the near destruction of the tribe.Patawomeck TribeJa13-1 Great King of Patawomeck his death likely occurred on 22 May 1623 at the famous Poison Plot, in which Dr. John Pott prepared a poison punch that killed over 200 Indians at Patawomeck, including many chiefs. Ja13Japasaw Chief Passapatanzy/demi Chief of of the Patawomeck Indian Tribe d 1622. The legend that he was the half brother of Wahunsenacawh and Opechancanough is probably incorrect. If Japasaw was not the brother of Opitchipam and Cief Powhatan, his own brother, the Great King of Patawomeck, was not their brother by blood but was their brother by marriage to their eldest sister and father of Powhatan’s favorite wife, Winganuske. m1Paupauwiske had a son about 1610 m2Ontonah ?daughter of Chief Powatan and Winganuske, mother of Pocahontas Ja12Wahanganoche alias Whipsewasson (first cousin to Pocahontas) Wahanganoche is believed to have also been the young King of Patawomeck when Father Andrew White visited in March of 1634. Since he was still under age at that time, he had a guardian named Archihu, who was his uncle. Since Archihu had not inherited the kingship, he was evidently an uncle by marriage to a deceased sister of Wahanganoche’s mother of the royal blood. mprobably married a daughter of Ka-Okee, b about 1609/10, daughter of Pocahontas and Kocoum.
