Virginia Scotch-Irish

Do you have Scottish ancestry? For those of us whose ancestral line leads back to Augusta County, Virginia with hints of Scottish ancestry, the Lyman Chalkey books are a goldmine.

While most of the entries in volume one just put a person in a particular place and time, some entries actually help figure out the family units. Page 427 contains such an entry naming the daughters of George Crawford.

page 427
County Court Chancery Decrees Decided
1823, 1823, 1825 (I to N)
Henry Miller, and Hannah, late Hannah Crawford, Peter Hanger, Jr. and Patsey, late —— Crawford vs. James Bourland, et. al. — Daughters of George Crawford. George died intestate, leaving six children, viz, the two female plaintiffs, Polly Bourland, who married James Bourland; Nancy Miller, late Nancy Crawford, who married John Miller; Jane McCue, who married Franklin McCue, Peggy Crawford, minor. Bill for petition. Report of Commissioners, filed, 25th December, 1824

A second entry for Hannah Crawford Miller is found on page 537. Combined with the entry on page 427, the two entries contain enough information to locate the family of George Crawford on FamilySearch.

page 537
File No. 927 —Miller Vs. Bourland. Henry Miller and wife Hannah, late Crawford, Peter Hanger, Jr., and Patsey, his wife, late Crawford, complain that George Crawford owned valuable land on Middle River. Crawford died testate, leaving six children, viz: female plaintiffs, Nancy, wife of John Miller; Jane, wife of Franklin McCue; and Peggy Crawford, a minor.

Another entry has enough information to identify a James Crawford family [LRJJ-96F] Since this entry also identifies Patrick Crawford as a sibling of James, it may be a tie to William Crawford and his wife, Mary Ann Douglas.

page 370
May, 1774 (A)
Brown vs. Pattison. Chancery writ, 29th March 1769. James Brown and Jane, his wife, late Jane Crawford, daughter of James Crawford, deceased, oratrix’s father, died, 1751, possessed of considerable estate, intestate, leaving widow and two children, to wit, oratrix and her brother, James. Widow Elizabeth, Robert Patterson and George Anderson qualified administrators. ORator and oratrix married in July 1769. Prayer for settlement. Patrick Crawford was brother of James, deceased. Elizabeth (widow) was Elizbeth Robertson, sister of William Robertson.

There are also several entries that are likely for the children of Alexander and Mary (McPheeters) Crawford after the parents were killed.

page 147
March 19, 1768
(6) William Crawford is appointed guardian to Mary Crawford, orphan of Alexr. Crawford

page 148

(141) Rebecca Crawford, aged 16, orphan of Alexr. Crawford, chose William Crawford, her guardian.

page 170
March 17, 1773
(17) Samuel Crawford, aged 14, orphan of Alexr. Crawford, chose Saml. McPheeters guardian.

Then on page 437 is an entry where Patrick Crawford consents to the marriage of his sister, Mary Crawford, to John Poage. Since Alexander Crawford (1715-1764) is said to have a brother named Patrick, this may be a marriage record for Alexander’s sister, Mary Crawford.

page 437
1751-1752
Certificate of Patrick Crawford that he is willing that John Poage shall get license to marry his sister, Mary Crawford, 30th May, 1751

While Chalkey’s Chronicle helps document the Crawford families in Augusta County, Virginia, there are some drawbacks:

  • Many entries just contain a name and no other information to identify them in the Crawford family tree
  • The FamilySearch tree has 20 children for William Crawford and Mary Ann Douglas including two named Alexander, two named Patrick and two named Margaret.
  • Too many trees try to link to Alexander and Mary (McPheeters) Crawford.

Since a descendant of Alexander Crawford (1715-1764) has completed a BigY test, DNA might help sort out these Crawford families in Augusta County.

However, we need more descendants of these Virginia Crawford families to participate. BigY tests will likely go on sale for DNA day in April and ‘scholarships’ may be available.


In the meantime, there is a lot of information in Chalkey’s volume one to figure out.

To the Worshipful Court of Augusta, now sitting: We, the inhabitants of this County, have long felt the smart of the great indulgence the ordinary keepers of this County have met with in allowing them to sell such large quantities of rum and wine at an extravagant arate, by which our money is
page 442
drained out of the County, for which we have not return but a fresh supply to pick our pockets. We, your petitioners, humbly pray your worship to put a stop to the said liquors, which would encourage us to pursue our laborious designs, which is to raise sufficient quantities of grant which would sufficiently supply us with liquors and the money circulate in this County to the advantage of us, the same. We hope that your worships will discover to us that you have a real regard for the good of the Counts, and lays us under an obligatin to pray for your prosperity.
