About Maj. Theophilus Hone

Major Theophilus Hone was the son of Thomas Hone, of Farnham, Essex county, England, who married Judith Aylmer, daughter of Theophilus Aylmer, archdeacon of London; justice of Warwick county in 1652; burgess for James City county in 1666, and sheriff in 1676. He died before 1689, when his widow Katherine Armistead, sister of Colonel John Armistead of "Hesse" married Major Robert Berkeley (his second wife).


Major Theophilus Hone was a justice of Warwick County in 1652. He afterwards removed to Jamestown, was Burgess for James City county in October, 1666, and sheriff of James City county 1676. Prior to May, 1672, he married the widow of William Richardson.

 In 1675 Theophilus Hone Jr and Thomas had a grant in James City county, adjoining the land of Sir John Aytoun.  There is recorded at Essex Courthouse a deed, dated Rappanhonnock county November 2, 1686, from Christopher Wormeley Esq, to Malachy Peal, of Stafford conveying land which was granted to Thomas Hopkins in 1654, escheated and afterwards granted to Thomas Hopkins Hone, gent.; by him conveyed to Justinian Aylmer, and by Aylmer to his wife, Frances, now wife of Christopher Wormeley.  In a pedigree of a family of Hone in the Visitation of Essex, 1634 (Harl.Soc.,page423), it is stated Thomas Hone of Farnham, 1634, married Judith, daughter of Theophilus Alymer, Archdeacon of London, and had issue:  William, Thomas, Theophilus, Edward and Elizabeth, all alive in 1634.  It can hardley be doubted that this was the family of the Hones of Virginia.
