notes

And, many white Armisteads can trace their origin to William (1) Armistead, who received a land grant on Mobjack Bay in 1637, and who appears to have immigrated on a special London based ship, the "Tristram and Jane" near Easter, 1637, while many black Armisteads can trace their ancestors to Virginia, after 1776. (*0,*5)

The Tristram and Jane passenger list does not indicate that William Armistead was very important with only one servant, while others, a Cornwallis€, a Sir John Howe€ and a John Davis, Knight€ ranked five to seven servants, each. The total number of passengers were listed at 43 with 70 servants, and included a €œJohn Smith€, who was, perhaps, Capt. John Smith or his son. A Cornwallis€ could have been Capt. Cornwallis (of 1637) or any member in the Cornwallis Royal Line from Kent. (*5)

The ship, tristram and Jane that transported a William Armistead, does not appear again in History, except for the return trip to England carrying tobacco. The ship€™s name could have been fictitious, for security reasons, since royal murders and kidnappings were a constant problem in barbaric Europe.

William (1) Armistead was granted 50 acres on Mobjack Bay (in 1637), acquired another 450 acre Plantation in York Co., and may have donated land for Williamsburg, where he mixed and chatted with common tradesmen, and which was named for him, or for Sir William Berkeley; or, since it was built in about 1677, for William III of ORANGE, who became King William II of England with Mary II in 1685 (See: Center Plantation, near Williamsburg.)

Anne Ellis was born circa 1615. Known children of William Armistead and Anne Ellis were as follows: 3. i. Col. John Armistead, m. Judith. 4. ii. Maj. Anthony Armistead, b. 1645; m. Hannah Ellyson. iii. William Armistead; b. before 1660; d.s.p. iv. Frances Armistead; m. Rev. Justinian Aylmer; 1st husband; m. Lt. Col. Anthony Elliott; 2nd husband; m. Col. Christopher Wormeley; 3rd husband; d. 25 May 1685.


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.

Theophilus was born say 1621,[1] He was a son of Thomas Hone and Judith Ailmer/Aylmer.[1] Birth place is reported as Honington, Warwickshire, England. (without evidence).[citation needed] Two of his siblings were baptized at Bishops Stortford.[1] Family

Theophilus married twice.

He married by say 1643 (first child born c. 1644) to an 1) Unknown wife.[1]

He married between 21 June 1670 and 26 May 1671, as his 2nd, and as her 3rd, to Sarah (Unknown) Edwards Richardson, widow of William Edwards and William Richardson.[1] There were no known children of this marriage.

Immigrated to Virginia

Theophilus was in Virginia on 15 November 1648, when he is named in a list of debts due from the estate of John Yates.[1] He settled at Jamestown in Elizabeth City County, Virginia.[1] Associations

"Theo. Hoane" on February 22, 1652, "Theo Hoane" received a grant of land on the Rappahannock in return for the passage of the four younger children of John Gorsuch and Anne (Lovelace) Gosruch.[2] J. Hall Pleasants, the author of the Gorsuch and Lovelace articles in The Virginia Magazine of History and Biography, surmised there was a relationship between the Hone and the Gorsuch families Property and Offices - House of Burgesses

Theophilus was a member of the Virginia House of Burgesses from Elizabeth City County on 25 November 1652.[1] On 6 June 1664, he was one of the justices from James City, Charles City County.[1]

He patented 130 acres in Lancester County on the north side of the Rapphannock River on 22 February 1652/3.[2] On this same date, Patricia Hatcher reports his patenting 720 acres on the north side of the Rapphannock River.[1] On 21 September 1663, he patented 1000 acres and an additional separate 50 acres at Elizabeth City County.[1] There were additional land holdings.

In 1667, John Hayman patented land in James City County, and his headrights included Theophilus Hone.[1] Death and Legacy
